The Top Ten

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.

What it was always overrated

2 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

3 EarthBound

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

4 Harry Potter

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.

Agreed! I read the first book to see what all the hype was about, and I hated it.

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)!

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 Gravity Falls 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 - MeOfCourse

8 Splatoon

It's definitely overrated but still good

GET THIS TO #1 - CommanderLudwig

9 Waluigi Waluigi Waluigi is a selfish, greedy man who works closely with the infamous Wario. He is Luigi's rival and is known as the opposite of him. Waluigi first appeared in the Gameboy Color game, Mario Tennis as Wario's partner. He has appeared in every Mario Tennis game since, still remaining as Wario's partner. more.

My god. Can we please stop all the waluigi stuff now. I agree. Kinda totally overrated... wah - Bowser64

10 Mulan

Both the movie and the title character

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".

It’s actually not completely fiction. The story of mulan is based off of a Japanese woman named Hua Mulan. - Bowser64

The Newcomers

? Maggie Pesky Maggie Pesky

Someone really needs to tell these Rule 34 artists what her actual AGE is - xandermartin98

The Contenders

11 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

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

"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.

Everyone on social media cries about how "underrated" it is

12 Bayonetta

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

13 Adventure Time 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 Never Underrated.

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

14 Frozen

Try "gone from overrated to overhated"

It actually went from neither underrated nor overrated to overrated to over-hated.

It was always overrated. - Userguy44

15 Bee Movie

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. - Maddox121

Best anime - Not_A_Weeaboo

16 Cave Story
17 Rocko's Modern Life 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?


18 Minecraft

I kinda agree. - Userguy44

19 Apple Electronics
20 Zootopia

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

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

21 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.

22 Diana, Princess of Wales 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

23 Team Fortress 2

I love this game but I do agree it is overrated. - Pony

24 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.

26 Suicide Squad

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

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

44 The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-Australian-German-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

Actually, it is in the right rating. It is not underrated because lots of people LOVE IT, but it's not overrated because it's the shadow of Regular Show and Adventure Time and it gets plenty of hate. Nobody used to notice it, now it one of the best current CN shows.

45 Yandere Simulator

This piece of *bleep* is so bad, there's literally nothing worse than it. NOTHING. I'm not kidding. I've seen little kids playing it, now they're all gonna become stalkers and murderers. The whole game itself, PURE CANCER. No words can describe how much I HATE this piece of crap.
Seriously? Stalking some guy who doesn't like you? Stealing stuff? Licking a rotten apple? Killing? Messed up. This game should be banned from Earth and the developer of it executed a slow and painful death, his body burned and sent to the depths of hell to perish and be under eternal torture.

I doubt this is THAT overrated. If you look at the haters you'll see. It's also not YadereDev's fault that kids play it. It's some of the parent's fault because they let their kids play this type of game.

Yes, I hate the fact people think that this train wreck is brilliant. It really isn't brilliant because of 1. It's stupid glitches. 2. Cancerous voice acting. 3. Not. Enough. References. To. Other. Games. Like. tLoZ
