21 Hero Always Must Have a Love Interest Hero Always Must Have a Love Interest

Why is it that the hero must always fall in love? Some of them are nice, like Mulan and Shang Yu. Some of them are an important part of the plot, like Cinderella. But I don't understand why movies like lion king need a love interest. Don't get me wrong, I like nala, but I think that she could have just stayed friends with simba

*cough*Simba and Nala*cough*

22 Surprise Villains Surprise Villains

At first, it kind of worked, but now Disney thinks it's a good idea to turn random characters into last act villains! Not working, Disney!

Fine in "Wreck-It Ralph" and even "Frozen" (and "Toy Story 3" if that counts), "Big Hero 6" I out loud said "oh come on! ", "Zootopia" I literally stomped out of the theater in a rage. Didn't even bother with "Moana" and probably won't see another new Disney movie again for a while if ever now that their twist/attempt to stay "fresh" has become stale and overused.

Eh it had a twist with the villain though. Just not one you were expecting. - RoseRedFlower

They did it again in Coco by the way - MegaSoulhero

Oh, and Big Hero 6 - 445956

WAY too many! please stop! - EliHbk

24 Animal Sidekick Animal Sidekick

Some are okay...some suck.

25 Anti-Feminism Anti-Feminism

Take for instance, the teenage girl being the best friend/arch-rival of the other. - The Ultimate Daredevil

Example; The girl is a scardey-cat, and then in the scary situation, The boy saves her. and there's usually a love at first sight moment after that. - Iamcool

26 Bad Guy Has a Wide Chance to Kill the Hero but Doesn't Bad Guy Has a Wide Chance to Kill the Hero but Doesn't
27 Villain Has a Big Chance to Kill Hero Waits So the Hero Has Time to Escape Villain Has a Big Chance to Kill Hero Waits So the Hero Has Time to Escape
28 Villains are Usually Girls and Heroes are Guys Villains are Usually Girls and Heroes are Guys

Scar is a male villain, not female. (And he's easily the worst Disney villain, for obvious reasons.)

I mean really?!
Maleficeint
Mother Gothel
Evil queen
Cruella Deville
Ursula
need I say more?

29 Light is Good Light is Good

Simply because "everything the light touches. Is our kingdom."

30 Somebody Unimportant Dies Somebody Unimportant Dies

This is so annoying, and yet this makes me sad. - wrests

Really? - AlphaQ

Hate it -_-

31 The Plight of the Orphan Plot Line The Plight of the Orphan Plot Line

The kind where the main character is a young soul, abandoned or orphaned who is surrounded by extreme forces and having to overcome many obstacles to find their identity. Pinocchio, Bambi, the 2016 Pete's Dragon to name a few.

32 Wisecracking Male Hero Wisecracking Male Hero

Hey, girls can be funny, too, and not just in a non-threatening dorky way. There are some welcome exceptions, such as with both the female characters in 'Wreck-it Ralph'.
I think it wouldn't hurt to have gender dynamics be a little more diverse. - SourNote2014

33 Overprotective Parents Overprotective Parents

Mufasa being the worst of them all. Glad he's dead.

I hate it - Roguy

38 Trying Way Too Hard to Appeal to Everyone with Pop Culture References and Heavy-Handed Contemporary Morals Trying Way Too Hard to Appeal to Everyone with Pop Culture References and Heavy-Handed Contemporary Morals

Why is there an image from "Wreck-It Ralph" here? "Zootopia" is BY FAR the worst offender here.
