Top 10 Worst Anime Characters of All Time


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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.

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!

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.

I hated that there had to be a fangirl in a beautiful anime like Death Note. - creepy

22 Chris Thorndyke - Sonic X Chris Thorndyke - 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

It should be called Chris X because every episode is about him. - LaST_LiGHT

23 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!

24 Kinkaku - Naruto Shippuden
25 Rem Saverem - Trigun
26 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?!

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

She forbade Gohan when he wanted to save Piccolo ( after the fight with Vegeta) and selfishly scolded him for wanting to do so, think he had turned into a brat, resulting in the two most peaceful and naive people in the entire universe - Goku and Gohan - mad, irritated and annoyed.

Remember when Chi-Chi was a cute, lovable, and sometimes badass 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

27 Light Yagami - Death Note Light Yagami - Death Note Light Yagami is a fictional character and the protagonist of the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

Everyone touts Light as an amazing villain, but he's terrible. He has no attachment to anything he's doing, he's incredibly generic, and, worst of all, he's an idiot.

Yes, I went there.

(Spoilers) (A lot of Spoilers)

Light had been given every single advantage that could be mustered. He had not 1, not 2, but 3 magic notebooks that could kill everyone over the course of the show, and he even had access to a horribly stupid and easily manipulated Shinigami that he used to kill L. He was in an easy position to get the names and faces of criminals, and people were throwing their names and faces at him left and right. And he still screwed everything up. He vastly narrowed down his position by falling for the most obvious trap ever by killing Lind L Taylor, and he (once again) only made it as far as he did because L didn't technically have any proof that he was Kira, even though he knew it. After L's death he basically sits around twiddling his thumbs all day instead of ...more

Why light? Put someone else here. - Number18

Honestly I don't hate the character but I need to leave a comment for who ever said he was a good person sure he thought he was doing good but he became a total power freak and as much as I don't want to admit it... I don't really think anyone deserves to be killed or at the very least I feel like if you kill someone it is horriable, sure I really don't like some people but at least I don't kill them... Also he killed a lot of innocent people even his own father... I mean what he did wasn't totally unjustified but still my opinion is it wasn't right.-.

An amazing villain bad protagonist

28 Akane Tsunemori - Psycho-Pass


29 Ginkaku - Naruto Shippuden
30 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


He sucks lol

31 Iris - Pokemon Black and White

She calls everyone "a little kid," Including adults

She doesn't realize she is 'a little kid' herself, which is very annoying.

She acts like she is better than everyone, and she is a lot like a hypocrite calling everyone "a little kid." She has got to stop insulting people

Iris is annoying, but I think that Pokemon Black and White was better than the original (don't kill me please just watch a couple of episodes)

32 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

An annoying little brat - YourWaifuSucks

33 Master Roshi - Dragon Ball Master Roshi - Dragon Ball

The dragonball version of jiraiya

34 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...

She is nice but I'm sorry I kinda find her a bit annoying. Maybe its just me...

35 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

36 Weevil Underwood - Yugioh
37 Alois - Black Butler

Alois is my favourite character although I guess I can see why people would dislike him. :/

I love Alois, but I get why people hate him.

What?! How did Alois get in here? Alois is one of the sweetest, most adorable anime characters I know. And come on, his death was so sad

I cringe every time I see him

38 Frost - Dragon Ball Frost - Dragon Ball

Like danzo Frost is another hypocrite that cheats in a tournament no less and tries to kill other people with poison so he can win - ikerevievs

All he is is a space pirate and a cheater - ikerevievs

Who's this again?

In the newest ep of dbs frost finally got eresed - ikerevievs

39 Moeka Kiryƫ - Steins;Gate
40 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!

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?

Wow you got it wrong spelling its DORAEMON not DORAEMAN

How is he even an anime?
