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 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.

I like Draco!

Why this isn't first place

Bella's too sickle. I actually like Draco.

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.

2 Edward Cullen (Twilight) Edward Cullen is a fictional character in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. He is featured in the books Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, and their corresponding film adaptations, and the as yet unfinished novel Midnight Sun—a re-telling of the events of Twilight from Edward's perspective. more.

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

3 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

4 Zoey Redbird (House of Night)
5 Mr. Large (Cherub)
6 Patty Farrell (Diary of a Wimpy Kid)

Stupid jerky brat

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

7 Mr. Grumpy (Mr.Men)

DON'T INSULT Mr. MEN - 445956

8 Manny (Diary of a Wimpy Kid)

Why is he so lucky! He never gets punished for anything, he gets Greg in a ton of trouble, he ruins greg's gaming system and door and then greg gets in trouble for it, while the parents adore him in a way they never adored greg, he murdered twenty six people, abused a million kids, and... oh wait, I made those last 2 up.

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

9 Heather Hills (Diary of a Wimpy Kid)
10 Dolores Umbridge (Harry Potter)

Should be number 1. Just the sight of her makes me want to kill her

I hate her. every time she says "hem, hem" I want to bash her face up with a chair.

How is she not even in the top ten?!?!

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

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 can imagine Amy Rose would whack Nikki Maxwell with her Piko Piko Hammer on her head.

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

She’s so annoying and exactly like MacKenzie

12 The Queen Of Hearts (Alice In WonderLand)

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

13 Total (Timmy Failure)

Uh... No.

14 Miss Trunchbull (Matilda)

Omh she's terrible! - WinterSky

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,"

I like the book though but her I hate! her lol👺

15 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!

16 Stargirl (Stargirl)

Rude and ugly, pushy and stupid - WinterSky

she sucks

17 Violet Baker (Dork Diaries)

I like her but hey an opinion is an opoinion

18 Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games) Katniss Everdeen is a fictional character and the protagonist of The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. She is portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence in the film adaptation franchise.
19 Greg Heffley (Diary of a Wimpy Kid)

He's selfish and has no thankfulness for his friends. - JoMama163

Greg is a school shooter in the making.

20 Veruca Salt (Charlie and The Chocolate Factory)

Oh gosh! This BRAT better be higher on the list next time! I almost exploded into a puddle of custard when she said, "daddy, I want another pony," even after her dad (who spoils her sooo much) made all those factory workers unwrap layers of wonka bars to find a little golden ticket, so the greedy little BRAT could head to the chocolate factory, only to demand for a squirrel and fer what she deserved!

Ughh that brat she has twenty one stanking pets and now a squirrel

So spoilt that's why. she wants a squirrell. I already read the book.

21 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.

22 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.

23 Miss Hardbroom (The Worst Witch)

She's not bad.she's just a strict teacher in worst witch.
she's not worst like miss trunchbull. she just gets cross if you do badly on your test or your exam. she is a magical witch.

24 Rowley Jefferson (Diary of a Wimpy Kid)

Lip-synced over songs before even existed.

25 Count Olaf (A Series of Unfortunate Events)

So funny and annoying.

26 Perfect Peter (Horrid Henry) Perfect Peter is a main character in the Horrid Henry series created by American author Francesca Simon and British illustrator Tony Ross.

Henry: You took everything from me.

Peter: I don't even know who you are.

27 Manny Heffley (Diary of a Wimpy Kid)
28 Octavian (Percy Jackson)

Octavian is the WORST! He just cares about himself and just wants power.

29 Joey Banks (Swear to Howdy)
30 Gina Hemphill-Toms (Big Nate)
