The Top Ten

1 Br'er Fox Br'er Fox Br'er Fox is the primary antagonist in the animated sequences of the 1946 feature film Song of the South. He is a character from the Uncle Remus folktales adapted and compiled by Joel Chandler Harris.

In my opinion, Br'er Fox is by far the most underappreciated animated character to come out of the studio. Ever since I first rode Splash Mountain in 2005, he's been one of my favorite characters and I wish he got more attention. Even though the film he comes from is controversial, the animated segments have been highly praised for their lively animation, catchy music, and rich characters. Br'er Fox is certainly no exception to that, in fact, I like to think of Br'er Fox as the true star. He is a very humorous and expressive character that has a great character design and is full of personality, and even though he's the "bad guy", he's still so likable. Splash Mountain does a great job at staying true to his character, and he is my favorite character in the whole attraction. The Br'ers continue to be popular walk-around characters at the parks today, but even with that, and one of the most popular Disney rides, they still hardly get any merchandise or attention.

11 Elsa Elsa Queen Elsa of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.
12 Lady - Lady and the Tramp Lady - Lady and the Tramp
13 Kuzco
14 Riley Andersen Riley Andersen Riley Andersen is a character from the 2015 Disney Pixar movie Inside Out. She is originally from Minnesota and when she turned 11-years old she and her family moved to San Francisco. Inside her mind she is guided by her emotions, Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear.

Even though I think Bing Bong is more underrated than Riley, she honestly is understandable to never be talked about, she wasn't in the movie that much for a protagonist :/

Maybe it was because most of the movie took place inside of her brain. - Gabriola

15 Flora
16 Kiki - Kiki's Delivery Service
17 Genie Genie The Genie is a jinn appearing in the Aladdin franchise from Disney. He is never given a proper name. He was portrayed by Robin Williams in the first film.

How can anyone not love Genie. He's hilarious! And he's voiced by Robin Williams. R.I.P. Robin.

18 Olaf Olaf Olaf the Snowman is a character from the 2013 animated film Frozen, produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios.
19 Simba Simba Simba is a fictional character who appears in Disney's The Lion King franchise. Introduced in Walt Disney Animation's 32nd animated feature film The Lion King (1994), the character subsequently appears in its sequels The Lion King II: Simba's Pride (1998) and The Lion King 1½ (2004).

I don't get Lion King haters.

20 Sid Phillips Sid Phillips

I think Sid gets too much hate. Yeah, he tortured toys, but I don't think he was all bad. And I think there was a reason behind his behavior. Thanks to the scene when Buzz finds out he is a toy, we know Sid's dad is somewhat of a lazy slob and maybe even a drunkard; you also know he didn't have a positive relationship with his mother either, as she allowed him to blow things up in the back yard and gave him no discipline from it. And until the end of the movie, Sid had no way of knowing toys were alive and could feel pain. Sid was simply a product of his environment and a misguided youth. And he changes a lot after the first movie.

21 Honest John Honest John

He's my favorite character in Pinocchio. Not honest at all, but still a great character nonetheless. He needs more credit.

22 Mufasa Mufasa

It's sad that he dies *cries*

23 Percival C. McLeach Percival C. McLeach

He's a great character/villain, but doesn't seem to get as much recognition as Madame Medusa and many other Disney villains. Really great yet underrated character and villain.
