Top 10 Worst Anime Characters of All Time

egnomac
As great as anime is there have been a fare share of terrible anime characters.

The Top Ten

1 Shou Tucker - FullMetal Alchemist Shou Tucker - FullMetal Alchemist

Tucker may be the worst father in anime history, but that's kind of the point of his character. He's meant to show the horrors of alchemy and the cost of science going too far. He forces us to question whether or not this alchemy thing is moral even in its smaller extremes. I think he succeeds in that task. Thus, I don't think I could really call him a bad character. He's just an evil character. There's nothing inherently wrong with that.

Normally I would agree but he's one those characters who's so evil I can't excuse him - Shadow6461

Not only is he one of the worst anime characters in history he's also the worst father in anime history experimenting on his own daughter for his own selfish reason he deserves a special place hell for that. - egnomac

This man deserves to be on the top. Sacrificed his wife for money and work!? Really? You have a daughter! You're going to let her live her life without her!?

Oh crap... He did the same thing to her and the family dog with a big smile on his face, knowing that he'll be rewarded once again.

Sick.

2 Sakura Haruno - Naruto Sakura Haruno - Naruto Sakura Haruno is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

She's so annoying! Whenever Sasuke and Naruto come to save her together, she's like 'Sasuke! Sasuke! ' She cries all the time. She doesn't give a damn about Naruto, always Sasuke kun! Always because of her Naruto gets in troubles at their missions, because Sakura gets herself in idiotic troubles, and Naruto has to save her. I've never seen her fight once. She only did fight Sasori, and most of the work was done by Chiyo, and Sasori, despite that, also went easy on Sakura. She acts as if she's even stronger than Naruto and Sasuke! She's nothing like them or Tsunade! She's bthe second most weakest Naruto character, (after Hinata). Sakura never does anything on missions, but cry and fall in troubles so that Naruto would get distracted and he has to come save her! She never understood Naruto or Sasuke, or anyone else. She never has thanked Naruto, after all the times he has saved her worthless life, instead she repays him by giving a punch when he is being himself, childish and adorable?! ...more

You know what? Sakura is selfish girl, not only is she selfish, she's a manipulator and a doormat for sasuke! Like seriously this girl does not know when she's been rejected or not wanted by anyone, she's so annoying, she can't stand up to sasuke and she's NOT his equal like shipping morons claim she is! For gods sake! She BEGGED FOR A KISS LIKE A DOG and got DEPRESSED when sasuke didn't give her a kiss! I hate how she uses Naruto to get to sasuke and rejects him! Naruto deserves better as well as ino and Karin! Like she takes her friends and family for granted all for a guy that NEVER cared about her or liked her at all! And then she has the audacity to compare the MASS MURDER of sasuke's CLAN AND FAMILY to her "loneness" of "losing" sasuke! Like no,i'm done! This girl deserves to be ALONE,she doesn't deserve ANYONE, this is what she gets for being so selfish and uncaring for anyone but HERSELF! I will NEVER understand WHY people PRAISE this girl and trash the other girls, like ...more

Sakura is an epic failure of a character and all the hate is completely justified. Personality-wise, she de-evolves into a insipid crying mess at critical points in Team 7's development in both original Naruto and Shippuden, never being able to be there for or help her teammates on any level. She bullied Naruto frequently when they were younger, and repays all of his later kindness to her with harsh physical abuse. She false 'confesses' to Naruto only to respond angrily when rejected, despite putting his heart through the wringer. What use is being a good medic if she worsens Naruto's injuries by beating him or throwing him into a tree after the battle? Despite being praised by everyone for her smarts, her intelligence level drops to that of a gnat's when it comes to dealing with Sasuke's numerous rejections. And romantically pursuing a man who might as well be a psychopath for the way he treats people who care about him...can't even emphasize how stupid that is. She resolved to not ...more - Hybri

3 Sugou Nobuyuki - Sword Art Online Sugou Nobuyuki - Sword Art Online Sugou Nobuyuki is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara . He is the main antagonist of the Fairy Dance arc .

I did love when Kirito sliced his hand and body in half, along with puncturing his sword into Sugou's eye. That was a well-deserving beatdown, indeed. At least it was worth watching all the way to the end of the Fairy Dance arc just to see this filthy man get his just desserts. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

How the heck do people on Reddit love Sugou? They say dumb things like he has a good heart and that Kirito is a villain. IT SHOULD BE THE OPPOSITE! BURN IN HELL FOREVER, YOU SUGOU FANS WHO WORSHIP A PERVERTED SHOU TUCKER! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Kirito is only overpowered and has a harem, but still a likeable character. Sugou, on the other hand, RUINED AN ENTIRE ARC! The people on Reddit make me want to punch them in the face for even loving this sadist!

If this pervert touched me. I swear I will hit him until he stops. And if he still keeps doing it or does it again. I am going to do self defense EXTREMELY hard on him. Maybe even using some chairs and tables. - MissRWBY202

CORRECTION : He's the BEST anime character.

Can't believe how many idiots like this guy. He's so selfish. Always leaving his family behind without a second thought. Barely ever there until his kids are grown. And people think he fights to save the world? Ha. No dummies. He fights cause he likes it. That's why he always let the villians. Worst father and husband.

What is this? He's the best anime character ever! - SiriusPhoenix

Thanks for ruining my life you idiot

Pico is the WORST thing that has ever been created. She rose from the pits of hell and forced Natural High (studio) to make her money! So they made Pico her own show and she is now rich. she tortures people by making them watch her show. the hideous demon can't be stopped now!

Thanks for ruining ice cream for me, man...

6 Makoto Ito - School Days

The worst ladies man in history. Hey, lets mess up two girl's minds to their breaking point cause you know, I get to have sex with them, who cares how they feel? Who care if their hearts are broken by me?

Oh... Sex Buddy #1 snapped... she's stabbing me a dozen times. I am now in the afterlife, let's see what's going on at Earth? Oh? Sex buddy #2? She killed Sex Buddy #1? At least she got revenge for me and finally can move on with life. What the hell is going on? She chopped my head off and put it in the bag? Now she's giving #1 who is pregnant with my child to see... that there wasn't a child after all!? Now she's cradling my head on a boat with lifeless eyes...

Oh yeah, I toyed with her emotions too.

Just how do people even say Kirito is the worst character in the history of anime when Makoto Ito is clearly worse? Okay, Kirito may be overpowered, have a harem, have little to no character development, and be a bit stupid sometimes, but he is not a bad person like this guy! At least Kirito doesn't try to make girls go insane and break their hearts unlike Makoto! Makoto has no heart at all unlike Kirito who has a good heart and tries to protect those he loves and it pains me that Kirito gets more hate when Makoto is clearly the worst character in the history of anime and not Kirito. Seriously, Makoto is more like Sugou manifested into a Kirito lookalike, only Makoto has no heart at all.

Think again if you think Kirito is the worst character in the history of anime. Because Makoto is clearly a more villainous version of Kirito. Makoto just abuses his harem unlike Kirito. Kirito may be a Gary Stu character, but people would be insane to call Makoto a better character! If anyone likes Makoto, I'm punching them in the face!

This guy is much more horrible than Sakura. I think Sakura was just realistic but Makoto was truly awful

7 Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto/Naruto Shippuuden Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto/Naruto Shippuuden Sasuke Uchiha is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

I kinda feel bad for Itachi because he has the worst brother ever. Seriously after everything that he has done to SAsuke and the village, all Sasuke can do is whining forever and ever and he is just selfish. He keeps thinking that only his life is the worst and he only cares about him. He was like ok before joining Orochimaru, but after that he is just a bastard. Can't believe he is alive and that he was accepted back by everyone after all the stupid and harmful things that he has done

You put it so well, I'm impressed. Everyone ridiculously forgives Sasuke, as if he's above the law. Itachi loves Sasuke, because Itachi is such a good brother, not because Sasuke is deserving of love. Sasuke is sorely lacking in merits.

I don't vote for him. Why? There was a small moment- I think it was between the Chunin exams and the beginning of season 3 that he was a good character: still slightly arrogant and quite cold, however he still wasn't annoying. Past that, though, he was incredibly annoying. At least he had a bit of personality and comedy factor in the first season, and seemed like he had depression more than just being an utter brat, and it's later revealed that he's probably PTSD or something.

PLOT TWIST: the bite of Orochimaru also makes you an annoying and cheesy character, all with the same thing: "i've WENT THROUGH SO MUCH AND NOW I WANT POWER AND REVENGE" like Mizuki.

But eventually, he had such a effect from seeing his brother that he tries to take his brothers advice(killing his best friend) THE BROTHER WHO IS ULTIMATELY BETTER IN THE END BUT TRIED TO KILL HIM, that he hasn't even seen in weeks and that was ONE TIME in an epic fight.

Now, if I were in a situation where my ...more

Sasuke does kind of suck. Even as one of the strongest characters in the series (thus far, I'm far from finished with it) he got practically all of his power from Itachi, and it wasn't really earned, it was given to him. Itachi never could've killed his younger brother, but Sasuke murders him without a second thought. Then (spoiler) takes his eyes. Just another thing a selfless older brother gives to a selfish brat, I guess.

Not the biggest fan of his character, but Naruto wouldn't have been the same without Sasuke. Big part of the story revolved around him. - -Clementine

8 Misa - Death Note

A disgrace to women everywhere, Misa Amane is nothing more than a doll used by the other characters to further their own ends. She's designed solely to be a fetish object for the show's male fans to ogle. Just disgusting.

Death Note would not be fulfilled without Misa, sure, but we could've at least picked a better romantic interest for Light instead of this annoying chick. I'll admit she's not the worst one on the list but I think the show could've dealt without. I do, however prefer her instead of that other chick Light went out with. She was always stupid to me. Misa just seemed way too attached to Light sometimes and her style creeped me out sometimes. Misa isn't the worst on this list, but I don't think the anime would've suffered without her.

In my opinion, Misa was on of the most useless characters in the show. Not only that, but she was super annoying as well. She constantly pointed out the obvious!

Such a manipulated bitch

Racist? Check
Creepy? Check
Obsessive? Check
Opposes the protagonist? Check
Attempts to blow up everyone for no reason? Check
Creates a last minute trump card? Check
Kills millions of innocents? Check

How is it possible not to hate this chick? I feel like the writers were trying to create the worst possible character, and they succeeded. She's an obsessive, creepy-looking, hypocritical stalker who does nothing important but blow up a city and be racist at all the wrong times.

Me before table scene: Nina? Sounds like a good normal person that everybody likes! I wonder what the table scene is.. Maybe her breaking a table?
Me after table scene: everything I said was wrong.. Poor table-kun!

She is terrible in every sense of the word; she is close-minded, racist, a creep, a stalker, has a victim complex the size of Jupiter, a murderer, a traitor to all her friends and family, and still has the audacity to act like she is the morally right one.The creepy table scene aside, she is a very hateful person that gets away with everything and is liked by everyone. I have never wanted a character to die a painful a death so much.

Annoying, rascist, kinky bitch. Also she LITTERALY RAPED A TABLE

10 Naruto - Naruto Naruto - Naruto Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Those people who thinks that Naruto is dumb and fool then I think that you did not see Naruto shippuden.

Now, I don't vote him... He isn't the worst, I mean, think about Makoto! (if you're even old enough to watch School Days) I actually liked how stupid Naruto was. It made his character, and anyways, most main characters are VERY smart, so this was a new concept back in the time that it released in 2002. (Kirito Kirigaya, Ciel Phantomhive, etc. are all pretty much masterminds.)

It also appealed to people that aren't abnormally intelligent in any ways.

But Naruto Shippuden/Season 4 of the original kind of ruined that factor in my opinion. Suddenly, he becomes...wise? This is pretty uncharacteristic of the guy. And one thing that I hated about this character in general was HIS STUPID VOICE.

The voice is that of an adolescent that's having a really rough time UP TO WHEN HE'S 15! (Shippuden) This is very possible, yes, but would you really be going through your incredibly-squeaky-voice phase as well as having a girlish high pitch for up until you're 15?

I feel ...more

I used to like Naruto before time skip. He was a good character and he seemed determined and he never gave up even though he wasn't the best ninja. But seriously he is just annoying in Shippuden. HE keeps whining about Sasuke and keep saying that he is going to bring Sasuke back even though Sasuke clearly said that he doesn't need any rescue and he is on his own. Plus, Naruto keep loving Sakura although all she does is punching him and she rarely understand him. Naruto is incredible dumb and he doesn't even look at the great people that he has close to him. I mean instead of keep looking for Sasuke, he has Neji, Shikamaru, Chouji and Rock Lee. They're amazing characters but all Naruto can think is about the emo boy. Also wish that he could pay attention to Hinata. I'm not even a NaruHina or whatever is the name of that shipping, but come on this girl is way better than Sakura but all Naruto can think is about Sakura. I think he only really likes people that don't treat him well. Also ...more

The Newcomers

? Chaka - Black Lagoon
? Mikuru Asahina - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Mikuru Asahina - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

I'm a bit surprised that she's not on this list. She is quite a bad character, especially because her only purpose is to be a cute moe girl. Her character is entirely one-dimensional, behaving exactly as you'd expect a cute girl to behave: in a shy, embarrassed sort of way. Her character has no complexity at all, even for the average side character.

She just exists to add an ugly amount of cuteness to the series, and Kyon only likes her for her appearance. She basically ruined my ship of Kyon and Haruhi.

I get that people won't agree with me, but I want your thoughts! - nk_the_epic

The Contenders

11 Karin - Naruto Shippuden Karin - Naruto Shippuden

She's nasty, unfair, unlovely, and her gushing over Sasuke is obnoxious.

She constantly crushes on Sasuke knowing that she doesn't have a chance with him she is loud and annoying and she has no regard for anyone else basically she is just a Sakura but a uzumaki.

More useless than Sakura.

Compared to her, Sakura is the best character ever. - -Clementine

12 Chi Chi - Dragon Ball Z Chi Chi - Dragon Ball Z

She's just really annoying and over all lame. Who tells their son to study while Earth is being attacked?!

She's constantly screeching to the point where I want to shove an apple down her throat to shut her up! Honesty WHY did Toriyama choose this harpy to be Goku's wife? Why not someone who would embrace his differences, the fact that he's NOT human and accept him for who he is. Instead of woman who just yells at him all the time and forces him to become a radish farmer. I wish he would have married Bulma instead, yeah she can be whiny sometimes but she'd never belittle Goku for wanting to train or their kids, she lets Trunks train with Vegeta.

I don't wanna make anyone mad, but Goku should've married Suno, the girl from Jingle Village. She admired Goku, and Goku wouldn't even be alive if it weren't for her. plus, she wouldn't turn her child into a nerd

Don't worry, no-one cares about Chi-Chi anyway. They won't be mad seeing her be mistreated. - Goku02

Remember when Chi-Chi was a cute, lovable, and sometimes badass character...in the original Dragon Ball? Z and Super totally ruined Chi Chi and I now hate her with a burning passion. One episode that really made me despise her was the one after Goku vs Beerus. Didn't Goku tell her to save that 100 million yen and not spend it all in one place?! Plus, she has the stupidest excuses for Goku and his sons to not save the world. THE WORLD IS IN DANGER WOMAN, THIS IS NO TIME FOR WORK AND SCHOOL, WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE! - OnyxDash

17 Hercule Satan - Dragon Ball Z

He's a coward who only helped when it suited him and insulted Goku; also he sees all the suffering the Z-fighters go through and he has the gall to suggest everything they're seeing is a trick and acts so retarded you just want to shoot him. Then the ass has the stones to make an entire world do his bidding by claiming he beat Cell when he did nothing but cower while the rest of the Z-fighters fought. He's a prick and it's not like Videl and Pan are any better.

Let's say you work really hard on a work project in hopes to get that raise, bonus, promotion and recognition you earned. Now with this, you can have all the praise and glory you deserved.

Then this bastard will take credit for it, he gets all the things you wanted and will not only praise the work he stole from you, but also belittle you, making sure no one will find the truth.

That's Mr. Satan for you, the name fits him.

Hercule is the definition of why are you here, he thinks he's hot and the most powerful in the universe, and gets his ass handed to him by Cell, he is so fake, and also he made a movie on how he beat Cell, he told everyone that the Super Saiyan transformation the ultimate power up that is basically legendary was a "CHEAP TRICK! " And do you wanna no what's worse, PEOPLE ACTUALLY BELIEVED HIM!

Lucy Heartfilia is a strong character! Everyone always calls her weak and useless and say that she relies on her celestial spirits. Do you idiots not realize that a celestial spirit is only as powerful as their mage? If Lucy was weak, her celestial spirits would be too! She's strong willed and fights alongside her spirits and her Nakama! She can summon up to three spirits at a time. SHE WAS THE ONE THAT BROUGHT THE GUILD BACK WHEN FIGHTING JACOB LESSIO! (chapters 477-478) SHE WAS THE ONE THAT FOUGHT TO BRING BACK THE GUILD IN THE TARTARUS ARC WHEN THEY WERE TRAPPED THE THAT damn RED WALL/STONE! (chapters 382-385) GOING BACK EVEN FURTHER, SHE DEFEATED AN ENTIRE GROUP OF BANDITS BY HERSELF, SAVING A GUILD IN THE PROCESS, BECAUSE SHE THOUGHT HER FATHER WAS IN TROUBLE (chapter 129-130). SHE ALMOST STABBED BRANDISH WITH A PAIR OF SCISSORS! (chapters 456-457) SHE NEVER GAVE UP ON THE MEMBERS! SHE HAD A MAP OF THE MEMBERS WHEREABOUTS AFTER THE GUILD HAD DISBANDED AND WENT THEIR SEPARATE ...more

Where do I even begin with her. She uses her looks and flirts to get her way with guys (which really annoys me). And in case nobody else has noticed she's extremely judgmental of anyone regardless if they're a friend or a complete stranger. Not only that but she's constantly hiding behind other people and doesn't use a lot of her spirits to their full potential.

The series would be so much better if someone like Erza or Mira took Lucy's place as the main female protagonist. Lucy doesn't need to be in the series at all. Lucy needs Fairy Tail to survive, but Fairy Tail doesn't in any way, shape, or form, need Lucy to survive lol. Lucy is such an awful character and if you honestly like her then...I'm not sure what to say to you lmao.

She's involved in so many things and I just don't understand why. She's the worst character in the anime and she's not even likable.

Why would you hate her? Because is not strong and heroic like Natsu and the others? Come on! She is has the most wonderful heart ever, she stands with her spirits and fights with them! She is one of the best female characters ever.

This should be in the top ten for sure

Okay I get it, she is supposed to be the shy/cute anime girl and I don't have a problem with these kind of characters (Sometimes) But the only problem is that compare to all the other pokegirls she is so useless and annoying. She just seems like the type of girl that would force ash on becoming her boyfriend and also she is sooo weak. All the other anime girls have at least battled ash once and all of them did pretty well except for serena she got absolutely annihilated, she didn't even stand a chance against him!

23 Yuma Tsukumo - Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal Yuma Tsukumo - Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal

He's a terrible character. I would take any of the other Yu-Gi-Oh protagonists any day over him. He is constantly saying how he wants to be the best duelist in the world and he can't duel by himself. He say's that if you fail, you don't learn. Guess what? You'll never succeed unless you try. Astral helps you duel, helps you learn how to duel with your brain and not constantly just keep attacking but all you do is complain about him. If it wasn't for Astral, you would have been dead long ago. Why does he have a harem? I hate it when the lead has a harem and the lead is annoying like Makoto from School Days. Tori likes him just because, Cathy likes him just because and Anna likes him just because. Yuma is the sole reason this show can get as bad as it can and I hate him for it. - RoseRedFlower

This kid is EXTREMELY annoying, easily the worst protagonist in Yugioh. In the first few episodes of Zexal, Yuma acts very disrespectful towards Astral, who's only trying to help him and should be the true protagonist. He's just annoying all-around. He wins all the time. In the entire show, he only lost THREE TIMES. He would've lost every one of those battles if it wasn't for Astral. And what does he do? Disrespect Astral some more. He never thanked Astral. - xMagnoblade

This is why they should have just let the Yu-Gi-Oh anime stop at the end of the original series. - izayaorihara

Why do you really think Yuma is the worst character in Yu-Gi-Oh! series, because he is younger than the other protagonists. You know, the sub makes him a LOT smarter than the dub. It makes sense that he is not mature due to his age. He is only 13, guys! He is only a kid. He is at least respectful besides his first impression with Astral. Tori should be the worst because of how much of a bitch she really is. Tori is so controlling. - vector3996

25 Chris Thorndyke - Sonic X Chris Thorndyke - Sonic X Chris Thorndyke is a fictional character and the main human protagonist of the Anime series based on the Sonic the Hedgehog series created by Sega, Sonic X.

I don't know why they shifted so much focus from sonic to chris. But on top of it all that he's just annoying, whiny and the only purpose he serves to the show is to agree with everything Sonic says. I guess they wanted a character that other kids in the audience can relate to, but they make him a rich kid with a scientist granpa, president dad, and supermodel mother. Yeah, real relatable...

This one character ruined the show.

I didn't have a problem with chris nor Sonic X, Sonic X used to be one of my favorite shows until the most dumb thing happened the thing when the gang went to outer space and time when chris was exposed to be 18 and was stuck in his body from when he was a kid and that's when it got dumb for me

I don't understand why she isn't much higher up on this list. She regard money over everything and was willing to sacrifice her crewmate for it. She already betray her hometown no matter her reasons. Her navigation abilities is the only thing she bring to the strawhat. And since they cross the white line is her skills are useless. I don't see how people hate sakura but love this girl. At least judge them the same

Nami always thinks she is the boss althougt she is the weakest character of the strawhat pirates. She is also mean to their friends.

Worse than sakura

For a lead female character she's really weak and annoying.

35 Tomoo - Elfen Lied Tomoo - Elfen Lied

This kid and his friends need to be much higher. They bullied Lucy for small reasons, and they thought it was funny to throw a dog at a wall and beat it to death with a vase. WITH A VASE. They deserved what they got and are the worst characters in the history of anime.

This Bastard needs to be higher. Only I've enjoyed watching a kid get killed.

An annoyingly brutal spoiled brat who thinks its fun to bully Lucy and kill an innocent dog. I'm surprised he isn't higher. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

...This kid needs to learn soon. If not, he'll be killing dogs left and right

36 Frieza - Dragon Ball Z Frieza - Dragon Ball Z Freeza (Pronounced "Frieza" in the Funimation dub) is fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama as the primary antagonist of the Freeza Saga. He is a galactic tyrant who governs the Planet Trade Organization and is feared by the universe for his sadistic and brutal nature. He is ...read more.

I'll say one thing- he makes a great villain.

Okay... Just what? Is it really... Do people really... I think this list is horribly done.

Friezas one of the greatest villains in history how can he be on this list?

Frieza is most powerful villian ever in his golden form

37 Whis - Dragon Ball Super Whis - Dragon Ball Super

How is he annoying?

Whis? No. He's funny actually. - TwilightKitsune

Boring and unflappable... A stark contrast to a set *once* full of vibrant and interesting characters who were inevitably reduced to mere "shells".

Whis is strong why is he here

38 Akane Tsunemori - Psycho-Pass

Useless

39 Blair - Soul Eater Blair - Soul Eater

A witch and a cat they put the two best things together and made it look sexy

She’s just annoying ;-;

41 Ginkaku - Naruto Shippuden
42 Nagisa Furukawa - Clannad Nagisa Furukawa - Clannad

Don't hate on Nagisa she's really nice

How on earth did Nagisa get on the list? She is very kindhearted and nice. She isn't a villain nor has she done anything wrong.

I don't hate Nagisa, but a dead fish has a more distinct personality than her...

Oh hell nah, why tf would you do this to an innocent girl

43 Gendo Ikari - Neon Genesis Evangelion Gendo Ikari - Neon Genesis Evangelion Gendo Ikari is a fictional character in the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise. He is the commander of NERV.

Who's worse as a father, Gendo or Shou Tucker? I dunno. But they both are horrible fathers. Gendo basically abandons Shinji when his mother dies, and after all thise years of neglecting him, he decides he needs him, and forces Shinji to do his bidding. You want someone to blame for Shinji's insecurities? Blame this guy. - Elric-san

Yeah HE sucks MORE THAN SHINJI SHUT UP ABOUT SHINJI WHEN HIS DAD IS WORSE!

He sucks lol

44 Nico Robin - One Piece Nico Robin - One Piece

No doubt, nico robin worst anime character ever -__-

Why is Nico here? Have anyone ever read the manga? Do you know how much of a badass she is? She's all like, hey there's a monster killing Luffy over there, I'll just hop on this branch and watch.

She's an awesome characters. Shes strong. Her bounty is the highest after only Luffy, Zoro, Sanji and well, yeah I guess Usopp.

No doubt, the best One Piece character ever. Does not deserve to be on this list.

Robin worst anime girl ever

45 Mako Mankanshoku - Kill la Kill Mako Mankanshoku - Kill la Kill

We all usually hate the characters meant to be the comedic relief (see Jar Jar as an example). Mako is the exception to the rule.

Mako is literally one of the best and likable comedic relief characters I've ever seen, get her off this list. - Rue

The ONLY comic relief character that I like. Everyone else is annoying

Mako is the best thing ever fight me - Justaloli

47 Shiba Miyuki (Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei)

If she is the reason why Tatsuya wasn't the best anime character ever, then I hate her! - SelfDestruct

Try kissing your own brother Tatsuya in front of my eyes, Miyuki. I DARE YOU! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

And I thought Leafa was bad. Miyuki is actually in a ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP WITH HER BROTHER. She is a bad representation of brother-sister relationships and promotes incest. I hate Miyuki Shiba. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

She goes, "Onii-sama! " every two seconds. God help our bleeding ears... - Hybri

48 Endeavour - My Hero Academia Endeavour - My Hero Academia

Do I even really need to explain to anyone who watches My Hero Academia why he's on here?

I would explain why he’s one of the worst, but we would be here for a very, very long time.

49 Nobita Nobi - Doraeman

He's second only to Shinji Ikari from "Neon Genesis Evangelion " as the worst protagonist in any anime. The title character should have been the protagonist, not this wimp. Nobody wants to see him complaining all the time because he doesn't study for anything. Grow a pair!

List of things he accomplished:
Number of time he used doraemon's tool: 1178
Number of time he stole doraemon's tool: 347
Number of time he used items that doraemon threw away: 124
Number of time he broke doraemon's tool: 578
Number of time he was beaten up by gian: 51
Number of time he pranked Shizuka Minamoto with doraemon's tool: 542
Number of time he pranked teacher: 332
Number of time he pranked dad: 84
Number of time he ran away from home: 14
Number of time he sold over his house: 2
Number of time he stole money from mom's wallet: 12
Number of time he crushed Lamborghini: 1
Number of time he pranked and/or bothered friends with doraemon's tool: 925
Number of time he saw under Shizuka Minamoto's skirt: 122
Number of time he saw Shizuka Minamoto naked: 677
Number of time he almost destroyed the earth: 207

I don't think I can do that in my lifetime even with doraemon being my friend.

In a way, he can be found as annoying, but then again, isn't that what makes the series interesting? Plus, he's probably better than a regular, bland, "helpful" character...right?

How is he even an anime?

He’s always the prick to Yugi and his crew. Also his arrogance is one of the things I don’t like about YugiOh.
