Worst Big Nate Characters

There are some awesome characters from Big Nate! There's our main star, Nate Wright. He is the one who is destined for greatness. He's got some good friends like Francis Pope, Teddy Ortiz, Dee Dee Holloway, and good old Chad Applewhite. Nate dreams that one day, Jenny Jenkins will dump Artur Pashkov & reveal that she likes Nate. Keep dreaming, Nate! These are some examples of the beloved characters from Big Nate, but there are some that nobody likes. Here are some Big Nate characters that are so horrible, that even the fans of Big Nate know that they're bad.

The Top Ten

1 Gina Hemphill-Toms

Gina is a very bad person. Everybody can say it at first sight. She is so bad, I actually enjoyed reading the final part of big Nate strikes again when she got detention. It was hilarious! Also I enjoyed the fact that Nate probably put her candid in the chronicle. I laughed so hard about the photo that I was eating food and I choked on my food.

I've always have thought that Gina is a very evil person, but when I read "Big Nate Lives it up", I already thought that she deserves to be #1 in this place. Nate has a reason for hating her, and I hope that on Big Nate goes underwater; chester kills all of the villains, and Marcus,Randy and Gina get the worst deaths.

She is very annoying. I would hate her in real life. I wish in Big Nate Blasts Off, the final, somebody goes and attacks her, gives her a turbo-wedgie and tosses her into Australia.

I hate this woman. She has a relationship with Venus-Silo (Mrs. Godfrey) I also hate the ones that have good mind

2 Randy Betancourt

If P.S 38 battles Jefferson again on big Nate blasts off,I hope it is an actual fight, and randy is fighting for his life on a very tall hill, and randy is nailing it against fighting the Jefferson students, but then a big and strong guy from Jefferson comes and starts clobbering randy without stopping and then the guy breaks randy's skull, then he stabs randy with his hand, and the big guy says a last goodbye, and throws randy of the tall hill and randy is rolling on the hill and hits several trees, and randy makes a huge rock split open with his body, and then randy falls of another cliff and falls way too high into the ground, and the big guy stomps very hard onto the cliff, creating an avalanche, and killing randy for good

I beg to god! somebody KILL that very big cretin! he and his friends do NOT deserve to live on the world! in Big Nate: Flips Out Nate had one chance to end him! one chance! he could've grabbed a knife and slashed randy's throat! or maybe even grabbing his head and hitting it with the Cafetorium wall! but he blew it! I'm so disapointed. If I could enter the big Nate world, the first wish I'd grant for myself would be KILLING that Betancourt kid! In the park I would threaten him to ending him with a bladed boomerang, he'd run away and I'd throw, getting the boomerang fly, slashing Randy's throat and coming back to me! arrrgh!

I would say that randy is a cretin! wanna check my top 5's? 3:gina Hemphill toms. 2:Marcus Goode. and for the most hated character... Randy Betancourt! why does he exist!? why is he a habitant of earth?! I am asking because he truly does NOT deserve to live on Earth! I just would make some bad wishes. #1 randy getting hit by an ox cart. #2 randy getting hit by 20 lightning volts. #3 randy falling into a hot spring in yellowstone park. #4 randy being in an avalanche when skiing. #5 randy gettin' smashed by a falling building. or else! if not... I'll grant my wish myself! HEADLINE:R.I.P. RANDALL BETANCOURT.

Never have I seen such a despicable idiot and a fat nosed cretin. He should've never been born! His arrogance would probably lead him to insulting the infamous chester Budrick and getting himself killed.he is so bad,I hope randy broke his nose in big Nate strikes again. If I could enter in big Nate flips out and add a mid credits scene It would be randy walking away saying: "I ALWAYS LOSE! ALWAYS! " and I come and say:"if you take your aim... (I pull out a boomerang) it always comes back at you." I throw the boomerang, it comes back and stabs randy's chest.

3 Nick Blonsky

That lying robber stole the camera, right? In a bet with Betancourt, he should steal chester's shoes! Then chester would grab and shake nick like a rag doll and hang him by the underwear in the coat hanger!

He robs, and lies, and we know he has made sins. I think he might be a possible candidate of "America's Most Wanted" when he grows up, he might get put in mental hospital, and put in prison for destroying a whole street with a bomb, and maybe goes to the fire realm I can't mention! seriously, what is wrong with this guy?!

I don't want a liar in my hallway. Choose a new hall monitor. NOW. Otherwise, there would be a hallway worry: Nick

He totally deserved that suspension in Big Nate Flips Out.

4 Mrs Godfrey

Did you know that one time in a comic strip she won TWO TEACHER OF THE YEAR AWARDS? all of you are probably like "what? " when I said it, but it's true, and so incredibly hard to believe... and that's the point. I am believing that she bought a book of hypnosis to manipulate the minds of the faculty and some grown ups in the neighborhood for them to be brainwashed and think she is the best and a very good teacher and to win the precious golden plates, so maybe you might agree with me on that theory. I hope so.

I am going to trick her into going into a beach club in her vacation, and the sunblock she'll put will actually be animal blood, and when she goes into the pool, there will actually be piranhas in there, and she'll be devoured until she gets touched by death.

She is too mean and strict that she forgets all moral rules

She needs a very urgent anger manager counselor

5 Marcus Goode

Well, you are in love with him too. Much more than I am, even. You love him so much, you go crazy when you see his name and say random things like "Don't cry, I can cure your chicken pox" or "Welcome to Whole Foods to get your tomatoes". You think he deserves to have a posse of every single seventh-grader in the universe, multiverse, and beyond! You love him so much that even when he does something mean, you cheer him on for everything. Of course Maya likes him and not Chad! Marcus rules!

When I first heard that Marcus is a cool guy AND a bully before reading any book featuring Marcus, I was like: what the heck?! Is this guy INSANE or something? He must be a very bad kid! It turns out I was EXACTLY right when reading any big Nate book featuring Marcus

The "most popular kid" in school is a bully. Why does Marcus bully sixth graders? Does he think it's funny that sixth graders have no chance against them? Also, cool guys are not supposed to be bullies. idiot!

Marcus should go to Jefferson. Nolan goes there and they'd be a fine match. Two Dipsticks.

6 Mr Galvin

Old-Fossil face is my science nightmare. I want him gone now. This second.

I can almost feel pity for that old, scary screamer. he is as old as master Yoda and as serious as a piece of ROCK.

7 Peter

You have to admit, he is smart, but is also a very bizarre person.

Not bad very smart and weird

I have 0 idea who he is, but he is probably terrible.

I saw his picture. It looked horrible.

8 Chester Budrick

Well, he COULD be the descendant of THANOS( an malevolent eternal) from marvel comics being send to earth, for the mad titan to finally conquer earth along with his son.

If I had a plain old bully, that would be fine. But if my school had a bully like this one, I would get him expelled. Or, leave myself and not tell him what new school I have.

In the book, they never tell you what Chester looks like. But we all know he's the biggest and meanest. Whenever you make him mad, he will CLOBBER you. he has clobberd Nate a zillion times. by the way, read Big Nate books and follow his adventures.

He is a big bully I think he should be first

9 Uncle Ted

Caillou gets a check up and doctor thinks he is sick from being dumb

He sounded kinda weird when saying: "how nice to be wanted! "

" If I am correct, he does everything in a weirdest style"

He’s so boring, ugly, and fat. More fat than Marty I bet. Who agrees? (by the way he also looked like a unicorn 🦄)

10 Jenny Jenkins

Jenny is stupid. Why does Artur go out with her. Artur is nice and intelligent. Jenny is probably B-range student who doesn't understand anyone but herself.

I can understand why she might not like Nate, as he constantly calls her things such as "m'lady" and acts as if she's his girlfriend, but that's no reason to be violent. I think she overreacts to small situations, and doesn't deserve Nate's love for her. I'm also not a big fan of her boyfriend, Artur. I think the comic is also a bit unrealistic, because kids aged eleven to twelve don't go on dates, kiss or hold hands, let alone do whatever they want without supervision. Maybe eleven to twelve-year-olds claim they date, but you never actually see them dating, or kissing, or doing anything they claim they've been doing. The comics themselves were probably constructed before I was born, so it might've been different back then. I'm not saying it should be cut out entirely, all I'm saying is it shouldn't be full speed ahead, because I definitely remember Artur correcting Nate on the fact that he and Jenny weren't playing "tonsil hockey" and that they were actually kissing.

If Nate truly replaced Jenny with Ruby in big nate blasts off, I think he made a very smart decision. She is actually the meanest girl character in the series (well, ONE of them) Anyway, let's get back to the point. When somebody saves you a swing you don't say "Drop Dead" I think she deserves to have egg salad poured on her head. She looks nice and acts nice, but whenever Nate comes along she turns into this mean version of herself. If I were Nate, I would never have her as my dream crush. Too bad he didn't know how she acted. As much as I liked the fact that nate gave up on her, I was hoping he'd do it in one of the much earlier books (Ex. Flips out) Infact, I want nate to begin hating her back, because them being a couple is a real nightmare. And any body who hates her has a reason for hating her. Seriously, what is wrong with this girl?

I feel like she should be in the top 5 for harming Nate, the very best character in the strip, both emotionally and physically, and do you think it would've been fun (to us) for Jenny to move to Seattle AGAIN for all eternity, so we won't have to feel sorry for Nate about getting clobbered time and time and time and time and time and TIME again by Jenkins? I accept!

The Contenders

11 Coach John

Do you really expect a fat guy being your PE teacher? Of course you don't, and neither does Nate. In Big Nate:In A Class By Himself, Nate is shocked with horror that Coach John is here. Seriously, Coach John must be the worst PE teacher ever!

If I had him for a gym teacher, he would probably punch me in the stomach with his sweaty fists. Then I'd fire him forever.

I will kill him.

John is very bad! I knew it through the Big Nate series but when I read book 7, I was like: how did WESLEY
Invite that PSYCHOPATH into P.S. 38?! If I was Nichols, I would've thrown him into a pit with HYENAS through a 1,000,000 feet fall. If I would enter a big Nate book, I would've probably tame a RHINOCEROS into killing that psychopath John.

12 Spitsy

I love this character he is so funny but only appears in a few books on a few pages so wouldn't it be easier to just remove him

He is a really funny character. I wish he could appear more often.

Spitsy is kinds dumb but also knows how to knit so... he's a in - between dumb and smart

He should not be here, I feel he is a very good and funny character

13 Artur Pashkov

He isn't that bad, but sometimes he could be annoying if you have a friend whose better at you at everything

I am the exact OPPOSITE of the #1 fan of Artur and JENNY, I want jenny as a WRIGHT in the future!

Should I kill him? Or should I hypnotize Jenny so se can break up with Artur and the cutest couple end so Jenny could go out with Nate?

That kid is very nice but he showed his dark side when his dog attacked Nate

14 Breckenridge Puffington 111

This kid acts nice, but I always had a feeling he was evil behind the scenes. Turns out I was right. When Nate realizes Breckinridge/Bobby used to bully him, it immediately hit my head that everybody would agree with me he was the worst bully of Nate's. It did happen, of course. I mean, who would pee in a sip cup and dump dirt down somebody's pants. ESPECIALLY if it's a smaller kid you're harming. I mean, Bobby was a giant. So, basically this kid went from being a bully to a wierdo.

He needs to learn how to be social. He's such a wuss. He would rather examine plants then play sports or chat with other kids. It's no wonder why he has no friends.

He probably is the strangest BEING in the whole universe, and BEYOND!

This kid is kinda strange but he was evil when he bullied nate

15 Mrs. Clara Godfrey

That's right! Nate's most hated teacher is on this list. Why else do you think she's on here? Nate hates her a lot! Remember in Big Nate:In A Class By Himself when Nate did a list of nicknames for Mrs. Godfrey? One of those should be her actual name, not Clara Godfrey. Why not Godzilla Godfrey? What a horrible teacher!

If I were a policeman, I would send her to alcatraz island for all her life and put an electric fence and hungry hounds to attack her! I would laugh at her whenever she suffers, of the pain and torture, and as an extra credit, I would give her bones, alive eggs, and raw meat all meals a day! pretty nice I am, huh?

Ooh! I've got another nickname for clara! she is "The fat and the furious"!

Probably the worst and most furious teacher I have ever seen.

16 Nolan

I am going to find him, kidnap him and then drop him off a 100 story-high balcony into a piranha infested tank without any ladders to climb up, just paparazzi to take pics of his dreadful fate and making all those pics famous, and I will win tons of money for posting the pictures and doing that to the worlds greatest loser

One day, as a punishment for everything that he's done, I will BURN HIS FACE, chain him to the electric chair, blow up Jefferson Middle School with EVERYONE in it, and take from him everything he loves, but if I have enough mercy, I will let him live, but as a slave for me for the rest of his life. and I forgot, I will leave him homeless and without any money, and I will laugh directly at his face for all his suffering.

I really hate this bully (Who's real identity happens to be a loser) I wish him to live on his own terrible planet he should be #1 and NOT gina

I hate Nolan very much. He is everything you could hate in a bully and more. I am going to someday prison him for life.

17 Nate Wright The Big Nate comic strip's main character. Nate is 11 years old, he is an aspiring cartoonist, drummer, underachiever, and plays funny yet overdone pranks on Prank Day (the last day or 2nd last day of school). He is somewhat self-absorbed, believing himself to be irresistible to women despite repeated ...read more.

I think Nate has a serious problem. He says that he likes Jenny because she's pretty (which by the way, should not be the only reason you like a person), and he doesn't like Gina because she's ugly. But, in Big Nate: Strikes Again he thought Gina was Jenny TWICE! So that means that Nate thinks Gina's ugly, because she's a nerd! That is so evil Nate! Smart girls can be pretty too! So boys: Stop making assumptions that just because a girl is smart that she has to be ugly! And Girls: Don't pretend to be stupid just to get boys to like you. AND NATE: I bet you, that if some pretty girl came out of nowhere, you would hit on her, and if you found out she had a A+ average, you would throw dirt at her face and call her ugly for the rest of her life! DON'T BE LIKE NATE!

Yes, Nate Is a very good person, but in big Nate: in the zone, if he really THOUGHT that he could fly when he jumped of a table, he was just being unimaginably dumb! and I can see why in big Nate: strikes again, randy said that he thought captains have to be good at sports, because he is the goalie in his soccer team, and he has been hit by the ball too many times to count, many of them being hilarious, and he can be very bad at other sports, too. one time in baseball, he got hit in the face by a baseball, giving him bandages in his head, and a black eye.

Nate is the best one, yes, but each every single time when Nate is playing soccer, he gets hit by the ball. and on big nate game on, on page 169, nate had a hilariously foolish facial expression on his face after being hit by a soccer ball.

He is such a show off and wants to be king off everything

18 Kim Cressley

Do you know what makes her worse than being the girlfriend of a psycho? Being followed. That's what she used to do when she had a crush on Nate, but now she likes Chester Budrick.

That girl must control her strength! She hugs like a fat reticulated python!

Welcome to whole foods get your tomatoes

I will go out there just to kick her back.

19 Dee Dee Holloway

I agree. She is highly overdramatic and frankly, was not introduced the right way in the novels or the strip. In both, it seemed as if everybody knew her from the very beginning, while in truth the only way they could have realistically known her was the interview in "Poor Nate's Almanack" in "Big Nate Strikes Again." Back in January Lincoln Peirce stated in his blog the reason he introduced Dee Dee was to have a girl who could just be a friend to Nate (as opposed to a rival like Gina or a crush who was not fond of him like Jenny,) but when I read that, I thought, Is that not exactly what Sheila was in the comic strip? I wondered if he ever thought to introduce Sheila to the books instead (granted, she was going out with Francis, and was a friend to Jenny, who did not like Nate, but neither of those should have stopped her.) Sheila was never a painstakingly bad actress (several characters, such as Nate, Francis, Teddy, and Jenny, among others, would agree that Dee Dee is.) I remember ...more

I love you so much better than the original version of the year of high and the other hand it over the last two races in a row of the day of my life and you have to go out to be the same thing as the only thing that could make a difference in my head is a very long time to be the best of

Honestly I don't think she deserves being here.

Oh yeah she told Nate to kiss Francis in big Nate flips out in page 191 what the heck!

20 Marty Wright

What the hell? He's a funny character who cares for his kids and provides us with laughs!

I think that he is actually pretty cool. And every so often he can be a bit funny. The only reason I don't like him is because he buy's horrible halloween treats. It annoys me so much!

This guy really sucks at this whole fatherhood thing. How the heck was he granted custody of Nate and Ellen?

I actually like him. Am I the only one?

21 Mary Ellen Popowski

Mary Ellen is a very bad and horrible person without senses of humor. In big Nate in the zone when she wouldn't take the Paton because of " boy cooties " she was being so dumb. I wish someone could come dig a deep hole toss her in it and patch it up.

I will teach her a lesson one day, for being so malicious to boys!

I do not trust her

Here's something Mary Ellen would say: hey, everyone! please don't infest me with your boy cooties! I am a girl, and we don't want to get our precious skin ruined!

22 Julian Albams
23 Mr Rosa

Do you guys seriously dislike Mr. Rosa? Who would put a nice teacher like him on the list? Explain.

Shouldn't be on the list

Can anyone tell me why is he here?! he shouldn't be here. I really mean it.

Nice,shouldn't be on this list.

24 Dan LaBreque

That jerk stole Nate's girlfriend. His first girlfriend who actually liked him back. Trudy was in a different grade and Kelly was in a whole different school. So Angie was more convenient than them at least. But then Dan LaBreque came along and she dumped Nate for him. Why doesn't Dan just find another girl who likes him. I mean, seriously. I felt so sorry for Nate, I actually made up a comic about Dan LaBreque moving away and Nate getting back together with Angie.

Dans Butt Will Be Ignited And Eaten By Principal Williger

Broke up with Angie anyway. Jerk

He just sucks

25 Mrs. Williger

I am going to THROW HER OFF MOUNT EVEREST, chain her too a very aggressive tiger, burn her home down without caring if people are in there, and toss her on my garage roof. HARD. That I'll teach her a lesson. I won't kill her, but I will prison her in a bad jail in handcuffs for life. Without any clothing, food or money. She won't even get a place to sleep. I will also get someone to take a picture of me beating her up and make it a famous picture

I wish I could work with you on that quest if we could. BEST COMMENT EVER!

Nate falls off a canteen table (Big Nate: Goes For Broke) and injures himself. The principal says:

'At Jefferson we don't tolerate horseplay'

Emm... A child just injured themselves.

What was THAT?! horseplay?! that dumb principal thinks a kid who broke a bone was playing?! it was a confrontation with nolan!,heyy, that is different than playing friendilly, you blockbrain! (and I'm talking to mrs. williger! ). if that principal just confused a grave injury with HORSEPLAY, then her brain is as smart as a brick!

26 Ruby Dinsmore

Seriously, why Ruby people, she was never mean to anyone. If your saying she's mean for liking Randy and Nat. Your all sides Ruby is the nicest person ever. Even nicer than Artur!

Listen ruby can't be on this list she is so cute and gentil I cried when I found out nate was moving but I laugh out allowed when I found out nate wasent moving I think your wrong that ruby is one of the wost big nate characters she just so cute I love her and in fact I want a new big nate sequvel were nate saves ruby from a new relly mean large and strong bully

27 Francis Butthurst Pope III

I will hypnotize him so he can stop reading trivia.

He needs a new haircut or everyone will say

I agree when Nate gets hurt he says he will be fine he is heartless

His middle name sucks - JoubsterA4

28 School Picture Guy

He is a great person and all, but can't he take a picture of Nate when he's ready?!

He is a horrible dorky looking person who is totally insane.

The way I see it, he's a very good person. he shouldn't be here.

29 Teddy

I would say he is good but once he wedgies nate and poor nate is in trouble

He's great but in what's a little noogie between friends they have a fight to show artur what guys are.

Teddy is definitely a likable character, but he often has something up his sleeve for Nate. He often teams up with Francis to play mean tricks on Nate. That’s my personal opinion, but be sure to leave yours! 👍🏻

30 Mrs. Lumley

What a mean lunch lady!

31 Ellen Wright

Before Marcus, she was my least favorite. She is a typical big sister but she's a little rude to big Nate.

Weirdest and the most annoying by far

Ellen logic: Noogie Nate for no heck of a reason

She is a useless-minded sociopath. she is ANNOYING AND OUR GREATEST BENEFIT WOULD BE IF SHE EVER LEAVES THIS PLANET AND NEVER COMES BACK! and on big nate: blasts off, ellen said to nate about his new crush, ruby: "you like somebody! and you're figuring out how to tell her! " as she put an incredibly annoying and idiotic facial expression! how I wish she would try to play throwing the knife at the target, the knife bounces back from the wall, and It would stab ellen in her throat.

32 Teddy Ortiz

Friends make fun of each other all the time. It's just life. I like teddy a lot.

He made fun of an injured Nate on book 4: I wish Nate would've broken all of TEDDY'S limbs with his cast!

He is a very bad friend sometimes as he made fun of nate when he broke his wrist.

What kind of friend makes fun of his friend and tease him very frequently!?

33 Wesley Nichols

He is to dull witted to have hired coach john and mrs. godfrey, and also the fact that it's been YEARS and wesley hasn't fired them yet.


He is a complete MORON! he is so dumb, he doesn't even realizes how bad the people at P.S. 38 actually are. like for example, he has hired AT LEAST TWO PSYCHOPATHS IN THE SCHOOL STAFF, AND WESLEY MAY HAVE THOUGHT PLEASANT THOUGHTS ABOUT THEM, BUT THE HORRIBLE TRUTH IS THAT GODFREY AND JOHN MAKE ALL THE KIDS SUFFER AND ALSO MAKES THEM STOP WANTING TO GO TO SCHOOL! how's your brain going, hippopotamus belly?

34 Sheila

Seriously, people? First, Ruby and now Sheila? What the heck? Are you saying she belongs here just because she's Jenny's best friend? Why are you punishing here just because she is friends with a mean girl? I can't say she's nicer than Ruby, but she's nice enough! You guys seriously think that she is mean just because her best friend is mean?

35 Trudy

She is very selfish

36 Rusty Sienna
37 Angie
38 Gavin

That kid is so stupid, all he does is suck up to Mrs. Godfrey and he is mean one time he threw a rock at Nate.
He deserved that week of detention in Big Nate Goes Underwater. It's like he knows he is only featured once or twice a year and tries to be a jerk every time.

39 Chief Meteorologist Wink Summers

This meteorologist always gets the weather wrong. I could see how mad he was from Nate always complaining. That was the part where Nates phone sparked in Big Nate: I can't Take It

I had heard about him, but when I found out he is Nate's favorite meteorologist, I was totally shocked, because all the time when I heard him all I saw was Nate complaining to him by phone about his bizarre weather predicting skills. seriously, It makes NO SENSE that Nate is a fan of someone who makes bizarre conclusions and he even complains to.

I think if Wink had a beach vacation, his

40 Chad Applewhite

That is what I was going to say. he is a very good friends and the last thing he needs is appearing here.

He's a nice kid. He shouldn't be here

41 Ronnie Dwyer

I don't know him that much but seeing the way Nate speaks about him, Ronnie must be a HORRIBLE,HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, PERSON!

42 Miranda

Miranda thinks it's fun to be mean to nate

She's so violent and mean to Nate.

I agree. she always threatens him and is always mad at everything.

43 Francis Pope

Why is he in there he is like king smarty-pants (gina is queen) man he annoys nate sometimes

44 Ms. Clarke

SHE BARELY COMES UP IN BOOKS ONLY A FEW! man she does not need to be there
