Top 10 Things That Have Gone from Underrated to Overrated

The Top Ten
1 Final Fantasy

Final Fantasy 4 and 5 were great, and extremely underrated. 6 and 7 are some of the greatest games of all time. 8, 9, and 10 are pretty good. Everything after is extremely overrated garbage. - hiphopgod

2 Harry Potter

Hey! At least it deserves to be overrated. I'm sorry if J. K Rowling's writing isn't good enough for your special little souls and I'm really sorry for you if you can't see that Harry Potter is definitely one of the best fantasy series of all time along with Lord Of The Rings and deserves to be.

The first three books and movies were great, but then it went downhill and unfortunately also developed a very rabid fanbase (almost as bad as Frozen) in the process.

It is overrated, that "always" quote is overrated, Snape is way overrated, and that quote and character are part of the reason the series is overrated.

I don't remember this ever being "underrated" to be honest, but the fanbase is SCARY! Worse than the Frozen fanbase (not joking)!

3 EarthBound

Not overrated. If you think it is then you're looking at it from the wrong angle.

4 Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

It's the SJWs and their "Yay space lesbians! Representation, yo! " that drove this into overrated territory.

Yeah, the animation is lazier than other RDK/Korean-American Animation products.

It was always overrated what are you talking about

Sad how a promising series has been taken over by America-hating feminazis

5 Chrono Trigger

It was never underrated.

6 Super Smash Bros.

I can kinda say yes. Nobody really cared about Smash 64, but when Nintendo started being all mysterious with Project M and hyping it up then everybody LOVED it. So no one really cared about SSB until Melee. This can kinda go in this list, but then the "Smash Bros infatuation" started like 15 years ago so it doesn't really belong here. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

No. To start it off, it isn't THAT overrated.

7 Mulan

Both the movie and the title character

It’s actually not completely fiction. The story of mulan is based off of a Japanese woman named Hua Mulan.

Get past the fact that this stars an Asian woman and you'll see that it's really not that great a movie as Buzzfeed, Upworthy, PopSugar, and all those other sites of that ilk make it out to be. And certainly not "criminally underrated".

8 Splatoon

It's definitely overrated but still good

GET THIS TO #1 - CommanderLudwig

9 Bayonetta

And people STILL say she's "underrated". What a joke.

10 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

So many have come out in support for this allegedly "underrated" movie that it's no longer underrated.

Became even more overrated after the real Notre Dame burned down

"Barely anyone even knows this movie" How, when raving about it seems to be a requirement for having Internet access at all?

The comment for "Treasure Planet" (i.e. "three-quarters of Tumblr cries about how underrated something is") fits here, too.

The Newcomers

? Genshin Impact
? A.N.T. Farm A.N.T. Farm is an American teen sitcom which originally aired on Disney Channel from May 6, 2011 to March 21, 2014.
The Contenders
11 Treasure Planet

When three-quarters of Tumblr cries about how underrated something is, it's no longer underrated let alone "so sadly underrated".

Anyone who still wants to insist on how underrated this is, call me when there's no more Jim/Ariel fanart, manips, or videos to be found.

12 Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape more.

This Show Was Always Overrated So I Have No Idea What You're Talking About.

This Show Was Never Underrated.

13 Bee Movie Bee Movie Product Image

Yes, back in 2015, I called it "the most underrated DreamWorks film of all time" now, with all the YA LIKE JAZZ earrapes and YTPs and Speedups, I can say it is overrated.

Best anime

14 Diana, Princess of Wales Diana, Princess of Wales, was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, who is the eldest child and heir apparent of Queen Elizabeth II.

Ahh, old story new exclamation, she can be called under rated in the early-mid 90s, but after she died in 1997, she became overrated and I would consider her overrated in the "NOOT" (National Organization of Overrated Things) in 2000. She did not just get around 5 movies, but 2 T.V. specials, more news articles than Fidget Spinners last august and still is in thumbnails on articles talking about British Women. - Maddox121

15 Zootopia Zootopia Product Image

How quickly it made the transition to overrated is quite scary, too.

The time this was "underrated" was barely a week, if that.

17 Channing Tatum Channing Matthew Tatum is an American actor and dancer. Tatum made his film debut in the drama film Coach Carter.
18 Big Hero 6 Big Hero 6 Product Image
19 Cave Story
20 Twilight

Twilight is the book for trolls to slag off because Edward and his family aren't killing everyone like in the usual vampire books.

21 Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray for Nickelodeon. The series centers on the surreal life of an anthropomorphic Australian-immigrant wallaby named Rocko as well as his friends: the gluttonous steer Heffer, the neurotic turtle Filburt, and Rocko's faithful more.

Ironically, this show has actually become even MORE overrated than Ren & Stimpy

(edit: disregarding the obvious advantage it has of actually being a legitimately great show) - xandermartin98

Agree, don't like seeing cow butts - Maddox121

Why is this here?


22 Gravity Falls Gravity Falls is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation that first aired on Disney Channel, and then on Disney XD from June 15, 2012 to February 15, 2016. The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity more.

I agree

23 Suicide Squad

It got poor reviews but everyone loves it, including me. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

24 Wreck-It Ralph Wreck-It Ralph Product Image
25 Undertale

This is even more overrated than FNAF! Deltarune too, but just as overrated as Undertale is.

To XanderMartin98:please understand that an awful lot of people hate this game by now and I personally think that this game is bland and overrated by now. I think that it might should be somewhat higher because of this.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the new Homestuck.

It's so overrrated like its everywhere if you look up genocide I guarantee you that youll see undertale its everywhere and to be honest shouldn't have won game of the year... Feels good to get that off my chest
