Top 10 Worst Animated Movie Protagonists

The worst excuses for main protagonists in animated movies. They may be the main characters of their movies, but their characters really leave a lot to be desired.
The Top Ten
1 Gene - The Emoji Movie

As far as movie protagonists go Gene is a bland, boring, unoriginal and forgettable character just like the main human character who's name I can't remember nor care about.

This is why they didn't make The Smiley Central Movie.

This movie should burn in hell

God awful character

2 Dex Dogtective - Foodfight!

Dex looks like Ace Hart from Dog City, he's yet another boring and bland character who can't stop blurting out bad puns.

"Frankly my dear, I don't give a spam."

That has got to be one of the worst movie quotes of all time.

3 Norm - Norm of the North Norm is the protagonist of 2016 animated film Norm of the North. He is a polar bear who comes to New York in an attempt to save his home from the hands of a wealthy businessman.

He looks a little bit like Noah from Noah's Island, if you remember that, but it would be if Noah's Island was rebooted and became cgi.

Have Cruella Deville to skin the lemmings and that annoying polar bear and make them into a smelt

My friend almost got tickets and brought me to watch this terrible movie

He is such a baloo knockoff

4 Davey Stone - Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights

I've already talked about this character before here's a recap Davey's a selfish jerk who's mean to everyone for real no reason is placed under the watchful guidance of a super annoying old man as he attempts to reform him with no success even after we get a flashback of him learning his parents died and turns into the person he is today he's still too unlikable for anyone to sympathies with.

He always suffer people for no reason.

Duck you, Davey!

5 Taran - The Black Cauldron

I liked the Black Cauldron however I really hated the main character Taran, he just comes off as that typical character who's cocky, arrogant, and thinks as himself as a hero and not afraid of anything until he comes face to face with the horned king, later he becomes so overconfident after finding a magical sword and suddenly thinks he's a warrior.

6 Boss Baby - The Boss Baby
7 Surly - The Nut Job

An unlikable character who's only out for himself and cares nothing about helping the animals in the park gather food.

An ugly hearted dumbass.

Surly sucks and is a jerk - TheNutJobSuxxBad

8 Mater - Cars 2 Tow Mater, or simply Mater, is a character in Cars and its sequels, Cars 2 and Cars 3 as well as Cars Toons. He is voiced by Larry the Cable Guy and inspired by a 1951 International Harvester tow truck.

I always hated Mater just by the fact that he's voiced by Larry The Cable Guy who just plays himself it's even more confusing that they would make him the main protagonist in the sequel Cars 2.

9 Ariel - The Little Mermaid Princess Ariel is a fictional character and the title character of Walt Disney Pictures' 28th animated film The Little Mermaid.

I always hated this chick. Her moral is "If you're attracted to a guy you never spoke to, make terrible and selfish decisions, but don't worry, your love interest and daddy will save you with no real lasting consquences and you will get everything you want." Bull. Crap.

10 Aurora - Sleeping Beauty Aurora is a fictional character from the popular Disney Film, Sleeping Beauty and the 2015 Live Action Release, Maleficent. She is commonly known as Sleeping Beauty and is one of the group Disney Princesses. She is a unique Disney Princess as in her film, Sleeping Beauty, she has a total of 18 minutes ...read more.
The Contenders
11 Pico The Woodworm - The Magic Voyage

I agree that he is one of the worst animated protagonists next to Simba and Kion from The Lion King and The Lion Guard respectively. Pico is annoying and needs to be squished and stepped on.

12 Oscar - Shark Tale

Nothing about Oscar is redeemable he's a horrible friend and a horrible employee who constantly borrows money from his boss for his crazy schemes which never work and only gets him even further into debt, he literally sells his friend Angie's pearl which she gave to him to repay his debt to Sykes and he gambles it away on a horse race and loses.

He is the worst will smith role ever!

Ugly, just fudging ugly...

Oscar Is Stupid Annoying And Retarded He Looks Like A Sea Cucumber Version Of Will Smith (Her Voice Actor) I Don't Even Know What Type Of Fish Is Oscar

13 Pip - FernGully 2 The Magical Rescue

The guy who was barely in the first movie is put in charge of rescuing a bunch of baby animals who were captured by poachers and Pip along with his bug gang have to go rescue them the only problem they're too easily distracted and end up at a carnival and are too busy having fun that they completely forgot why they even went out in the first place not only that but Batty Koda literally tells him strait up that he's suppose to be saving the baby animals but he completely remains oblivious, next time you need someone to rescue your baby animals don't ask this guy.

14 Stanley - A Troll in Central Park
15 Spark - Spark: A Space Tail
16 Maggie - Home on the Range

Literally Roseanne as a cow

17 Vanellope von Schweetz - Wreck-it Ralph

Not in her original movie; the recent sequel where she went all selfish psycho radfem.

She was okay in the first movie, but she became such a selfish little brat in "Ralph Breaks the Internet"

That steering wheel song was CRINGEY

18 Simba - The Lion King 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 hated him when he grew up, and hate him even more in the sequel.

19 Oh - Home

I hate this character! He is a liar, a coward, and a bad protagonist!

20 Bodi - Rock Dog
21 Kevin - Minions
22 Loofah - The Land Before Time XIII: The Wisdom of Friends

The only reasons why these two characters were created and voiced by Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sandra Oh for two reasons.
One, for paychecks and two, so they can make younger kids laugh.
They are heroes you just wish would get eaten by Sharpteeth alive. They made the movie more intona comedy and were the one reasons why The Wisdom of Friends is the worst Land Before Time movie ever made.
Yep yep yep.

23 Timmy Brisby - The Secret of NIMH 2: Timmy to the Rescue.

Timmy did absolutely nothing, He’s not a hero, his mother had to take so many risks to save him, and her children, but Timmy, he did nothing at all, but he was still honored as a hero, he’s a disgrace to his family, Thorn Valley, The Rats of NIMH, his friends, and most importantly, his father, Timmy should have been the villain like Don Bluth said he’d make him the villain and not Martin, I wish Rasco from the 2nd book would be the hero instead of him.

24 Edmond - Rock a Doodle

Edmond is so annoying with his voice acting. The movie should've had Chanticleer as the protagonist. Like Chanticleer said to the Grand duke of owls: Its me you want not him. Yeah that doesn't only go for the duke, but also for the whole audience.

25 Branch - Trolls
