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.

Yes this is so right Gina stinks and Nate is write about her being a suck-up

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.

He is really mean.

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

I like him

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 needs a very urgent anger manager counselor

Shes ugly

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!

You?! In love with MARCUS?! WA HA HA HA HA HA HA! better think twice before answering! you are talking about the insane guy who every one is insane enough to worship, are you?

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

Steven Universe

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.

He sounds like Stacy Dillsen from Zoey 101

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"

10 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.

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.

The Contenders

11 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.

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

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

Don't cry, I can cure your chicken pox

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!

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

He sucks to the core

14 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.

15 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!

Ah, B-Dawg or the Gus Gorman of big Nate. I hate Breckendridge! Why did you invent him, Peirce? Ohh, Man is he a terrible character.

16 Jenny Jenkins

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!

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.

18 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!

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!

I do not trust her

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

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

That's just gay

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?

He is a total hypocrite

I think he,s a nice character.
