Top Ten Worst Children's Book Characters of All Time

Is There that character in a story that you hate because:
They're being mean to Your Favourite book Character
Being a jerk.
Just... I just do!
Yeah, everyone's got one, at least in 1 book series... Oh, Teen books are on here, I allow them... Because kids read them...

The Top Ten

1 Edward Cullen (Twilight) Edward Cullen (Twilight)

How is the Twilight Saga for children? Too many romance - MLPFan

Terrible, Book Or Movie... - DapperPickle

I'll stick to Sander Cohen, thank you very much.

He's just a brooding vampire really

2 Bella Swan (Twilight)

A total annoying Mary-Sue with no personality or interests. How is she even a character? She shouldn't qualify as one!

Worst. Love. Interest. Ever.
Her blandness and lack of any real character development taught me what NOT to do when writing a romance. - TheSubinabox

3 Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter) Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter) Draco Lucius Malfoy is a character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. He is a student in Harry Potter's year belonging in the Slytherin house.

Please. Draco is a worse character than Bella? At least Draco is well-developed and tolerable to read about. He's a person who's been raised and forced to act a certain way because of his Death Eater father. He's always been pressured by his pure-blood family to be a jerk, and he went through so much because he was brought up that way. Meanwhile, Bella's just a Mary-Sue who's flatter than a piece of paper.

The ending should have had Harry Potter punching him in the face and Draco dying

Draco is a jerky coward the entire series long

I HATE THIS LOSER! He's mean and cocky. Unlikeable idiot and dumb. - Lunala

4 Zoe (House of the night)
5 Mr. Large (Cherub)
6 Mr. Grumpy (Mr.Men)
7 Patty Farrell (Diary Of A Wimpy Kid)

In my opinion Patty Farrell wasn't even bad in the books in the movies she was way worst than you've would have expected - NoiseVisitor

If you thought she was bad in the books you should've seen her in the movies. She was HORRIBLE!

Has be the most annoying character I have den in this series - OneWayStreet

She is so annoying - WinchesterGirl26

8 Heather Hills (Diary Of A Wimpy Kid)
9 The Queen Of Hearts (Alice In WonderLand)

She is not annoying but just cruel in front of others by cutting someone's head off.

10 Manny (Diary of a Wimpy Kid)

He is pure evil. I just want to strangle this character to death so badly, because I just hate him that much. Honestly I just want some kind of karma to befall him because he has yet to receive it in any way. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if he grows up to be a psychopath or sociopath, judging by his despicable and bratty behavior. I also wouldn't be surprised if ends up in prison as well because of his manipulative and evil behavior. But to put it simply I could care less if he got hit by a car or something because he is just that bad.

Huge brat and worse than Draco Malfoy. - Skullkid755

He does trouble making stuff(see books 1 and 3) and somehow gets away with it - BoyGenius234

Just kill this stupid %*#? @$! In the movies he's fine to me but in the books HE NEEDS TO DIE

The Contenders

11 Nikki Maxwell (Dork Diaries)

Dork Diaries is my favorite book series, but Nikki is a brat. She bullies her little sister for being annoying even though in several books she claims she used to be even worse as a kid. She watches innapropriate shows on T.V. and even curses. She does not respect her father, since in book one she says that her mom gave her and Brianna $30.00 to buy their father something nice for fathers day, but blew it off on a stupid Miley Cyrus CD (also proof she is not appropriate since Miley Cyrus is innapropriate) and let Brianna get a fashion doll. Then, she got her dad a lame gift. She calls her mom brain dead and is mean to her and calls her insane. Same with her grandma by calling her senile. She is also ungrateful and whines about everything. She uses stereotypes on everybody, and is mean to her friends, and is dishonest with them and constantly lies to them. She also has a creepy obsession with Brandon. So she is mean, period.

I couldn't agree more! - mayamanga

She even tells that Brianna has mental issues! COME ON, SHE'S JUST A KID FOR CHRIST SAKE!

She's a total dumbass. Even worse than Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

12 Dolores Umbridge (Harry Potter) Dolores Umbridge (Harry Potter)

She reminds me eerily of one of my high school principals. Ugh Umbridge. - TheSubinabox

The entire Harry Potter fandom's least favourite character

I hate the Pink Lady AKA the Devil Herself... Worse than Bella and Edward.

She's just the worst

13 Total (Timmy Failure)
14 Cho Chang (Harry Potter)

Like, seriously, who talks about her dead boyfriend on a date?! Other than that, she was just having a hard time dealing with Cedric's passing, and all those hormones. Plus, she just kissed the same guy who SAW HER BOYFRIEND DIE!

15 Miss Trunchbull (Matilda)

She said the "A" word in a kid's book - BoyGenius234

I mean, she shook Eric Ink and he had to stutter, "T-T-Two s-s-sevens are f-f-fourteen,"

16 Junie B. Jones (Junie B. Jones)

This is why parents do not want kids reading these books because she has a poor attitude

This girl is such a brat. No wonder 7 year olds act so rude.

17 Harry Potter (Harry Potter) Harry Potter (Harry Potter) Harry James Potter is the title character of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The majority of the books' plot covers seven years in the life of the orphan Potter, who, on his eleventh birthday, learns he is a wizard.

Why I he on this list?

This isn't a very good way to pay back the boy who saved your life multiple times. Just saying.
