Worst Family Guy Characters


The Top Ten

1 Lois Griffin Lois Griffin Lois Patrice Griffin is one of the main characters of the American animated television series Family Guy.

This moron ruins show all times. She cheated her husband lots of time. But when peter do same thing she become angry about it. Please let Stewie kill Lois. I hate her. By the way Meg is not worst character. She is just a normal girl within incredible stupid, immoral and cruel family.

Lois is whiny dumbass. Meg isn't THAT bad. Lois makes fun of everyone and meanwhile she married Peter Griffin. Her voice is so whiny and she gets whatever she wants. The only time Lois is actually pretty is on "Lois Comes Out of Her Shell" she is overrated and still continues to live from Stewie's attacks. She curses way too much! She thinks Meg and Brian date weird people when she's just as dumb as Peter. (But Peter is funny)

Lois is the worst fictional person ever made. Her voice is the worst sound ever, she uses her husband for sex only, she could win an award for 'worst mother ever' she's a hypocrite, she's not actually pretty, it's just makeup (if you disagree, watch 'blind ambition' season 4) and no matter how hard stewie tries, she JUST. WON'T. DIE. She has not a single good quality. Ok, rant over.

She constantly cheats on peter as well as abuses drugs on a regular basis. She is a trash human being who disgusts me.

2 Brian Griffin Brian Griffin Brian H. Griffin, popularly known without his middle initial as Brian Griffin, is a fictional character from the animated television series Family Guy.

Brian is an arrogant, self-absorbed, angered, no adjective to describe, mongrel...
1. He's always pointing fingers at every girl that is not single, They even made an episode which shows ALL of his past girlfriends, OH MY GOD!
2. He is an absolute episode hog, Sure, so is Stewie, but at least HE is entertaining even 14 years later, Most of them are just him pointing fingers.

AND THAT'S THE THING! Pointing fingers, pointing fingers, Pointing fingers blah blah blah, He always points his fingers while making an angry D:< face

3. He forces atheism into EVERYONE! He even told Meg to turn away from God, One thing, IT'S MEG'S BELIEFS, Yet Meg is #1 on the list, YET BECAUSE EVERYONE ON THE SHOW HATES HER

That explains why Brian is #2 of the worst characters of Family Guy

He used to be the funny, mature, and sarcastic voice of reason to the Griffin family. Now he's a hypocritical, douchy atheist, overly-liberal, douchebag who is a terrible writer, yet thinks he is the male version of J. K Rowling, and the Shakespeare of this generation. WELL GUESS WHAT BITCH, YOU FAILED COLLEGE TWICE! Also, keep in mind, he constantly hits on Lois. He is just a sad, anthropomorphic, alcoholic, drug addicted BORE. I love Quagmire for despising him. And also, he claims he dates women for their souls, even though he only dates bimbos. I hate Seth McFarlane. I hope he, along with Brian, falls into the ocean, gets raped by shark, and then gets eaten by it. And then after that, I hope he, along with Brian, gets raped by Satan, and then is forced to join a hellish version of the LRA which is ruled by Satan. - williamrozario

Out of everyone of the main and recurring cast of Family Guy, Brian Griffin is hands down, without a doubt, the single most terrible character in the series. Brian Griffin is an annoying, stuck up, selfish, egotistical, sexist douchebag who sees himself as some sort of brilliant mind with deep, profound thoughts, when really, he's just a regular ass who abuses women and takes his family for granted. There are times when Peter, Lois, and Stewie do horrible things that are inexcusable and wrong, but I'm still able to like those characters, because they admit to their wrongdoings and make sure that they clean up their acts and at least try to change things for the better. Brian on the other hand, doesn't take responsibility for his actions and just acts like a complete stupid ass every time he does something wrong. I honestly, for the life of me, can't remember one time when Brian even tried to do something to justify his actions. So, it's official that at least out of the major cast of ...more

Brian is the animated version of Lucas Scott. He uses women and isn’t even honest about it. He expects certain things instead of earning them like a human being and he constantly made all of his past lovers feel lower than him on an intellectual level. He sees himself as the male J.K Rowling, even if he failed college twice. He repeatedly never apologized for his actions and the minimal number of times that he did they weren’t honest. It’s okay that he doesn’t believe in God his beliefs are his, but the way that he handles religious situations is utterly absurd. He tried to force atheism on everyone he crossed and let’s not forget that he stole the one girl that Quagmire truly cared about. Cheryl Tiegs. Of course, Quagmire is far from innocent but at least he informs girls on his cruel intentions. When Glenn let Brian have it at the restaurant, I felt utter relief.

3 Peter Griffin Peter Griffin Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

Okay, I love idiots in T.V. : Homer Simpson, Patrick, Baldrick...
But what these characters have in common is, despite being stupid, they are LIKEABLE. Peter Griffin does not have that distinction.
Peter Griffin is just an ass. There is no other way to put it.

With other shows it's easy to ignore the stupidity of characters and just see the humour, but Peter Griffin is not even stupidly likeable. Other characters often have misplaced well meaning but most of the time Peter is just plain selfish and stupid. He drives me crazy!

How is this monstrosity NOT number 1? It's disturbing that even Glen Quagmire is so low on the list, but the very idea that Peter is only 8th, really disturbs me.

Peter...is a menace. He's a mental defective who does whatever he wants and suffers almost no consequences for his actions, openly admits that he despises his own children, cares for little-to-nothing that doesn't suit his own selfish desires. The worst part about him, is that the series never took the opportunity to make him an endearing and likable character, even in the early days of Family Guy.

Back in the earliest Seasons, all of Peter's actions were motivated by Selfish desires, with no regard for how it would effect others; thereby disconnecting his ability to become a likable character in our eyes, and cementing him as a Selfish Ass forever.

In Contrast, in the early days of the Simpsons, although Homer can be selfish and equally stupid, early episodes depicted him having to make big decisions ...more

Really? That's when he actually cared for the family and tried to be a parent! - Ededdneddyfanredux

Come on Peter Griffin why can’t you be a Family Guy? Why are you no longer the man who positively can make us laugh or cry? Why are you never the same Peter Griffin from 1999?

4 Meg Griffin Meg Griffin Megan "Meg" Griffin is a character from the animated television series Family Guy, voiced initially by Lacey Chabert, thereafter by Mila Kunis.

Alright... If I wasn't already concerned that Glenn Quagmire wasn't in this spot, seeing Meg Griffin here, only confirms that there is SOMETHING wrong with people now a days.

I admit, that Meg serves little to no purpose other than being the Family Guy Punching Bag. But I honestly do not know how you people justify voting a Victim of Child Abuse as the Worst Character the show creates. By doing this you are ADVOCATING her Abusers and telling the world that She is the Problem. Yes... I am saying it. To those of you who voted for Meg; you are NO better than Peter Griffin.

Meg doesn't do much and hasn't had an episode centered around her for a while - not since Seahorse Seashell Party - but that does not make her the worst character. This list should take in more what the characters do to determine their negativity and not just their role in the show. The idea that you guys can put Meg at the top of the list, while characters like Peter and Quagmire don't even break top 10, ...more

I find it really sad that Meg is number one and Quagmire is not even on the top ten. - Darellfat

Why is the one tolerable character on the show at the top of this list?

Meg did not fake a pregnancy. She says at the end that she read the pregnancy test wrong. It's true, Meg doesn't do a whole lot, but that is because her family, the audience, and even the creators of the show have designated her the role of Griffin family punching bag. That's it. That is totally unfair. Every time she meets someone who cares about her even a little, she goes completely overboard trying to get together with them. It is because treats her so horribly. I never heard Meg's own parents say they loved her until season 13. Season 13 did have a lot more Meg in it, though, and she was treated better. I think the writers are making some changes with Meg.

I know she always gets abused, but in the episodes that center around her she acts like a complete, unlikeable nutjob.

5 Glenn Quagmire Glenn Quagmire Glenn Quagmire, often referred to as just Quagmire, is a character from the animated television series Family Guy.

The fact that Glenn Quagmire is not #1 on this list, disturbs me. How could anyone possibly condone what this CREATURE is and what he does? I am sorry, but there is no justification for him at all. Even in the episodes that are centered around him just feel SO phony because it's just putting him in a "good" position in a bad situation to manipulate how we feel about him; like the episode where his sister is being abused or when he discovers he has a newborn daughter.

Why should he be hated? He's a Rapist.. That alone should knock him to the top of the list. He's a Kidnapper - even admitting to keep a woman tied up in his basement and starving her. He's a Necrophile - he has more than once shown to have desires to have sex with dead women. He's probably a Zoophile. He respects NO personal boundaries; to the point of knocking women unconscious, drugging them and having their way with them.

But the absolute WORST stinger is his Lusting over Lois. And the nerve ...more

In my opinion, Quagmire should be in jail. Now, I could give all of you a speech about why that is, but no, I can just sum it up in these few words.

1) He is a damned rapist! You know the worst part there is to that? It's this, one of his friends is a police officer, Joe Swanson. Yet, he knows exactly what Quagmire does, but he doesn't do a thing about it! How can anyone call this guy a police officer if all he does is ignore criminals, especially when they're sitting right next to him?! Quagmire should have been put in jail years ago!

2) He's guilty of drugging, kidnapping, and raping women. Now, I'm no expert on things involving T.V. ratings or anything, but Quagmire does all of this and worse, children watch this show. If kids love Quagmire, they'll think what he does isn't a problem! Nough said.

3) He is aware and unashamed that he is carrying all known sexual diseases and doesn't care in the least that he no doubts passes them on to all the women he sleeps ...more

Some people like Quagmire because he called out Brian on his arrogance and hypocritical actions, but Quagmire is even worse than Brian. He's a selfish rapist who has no respect for women. He's had several illegitimate children (most whom he never even bothered to see), and he's a complete ass who couldn't even bother to show sympathy when Peter lost his friend and pet, Brian Griffin. He tried to have sex with Meg when she turned 18 despite the fact that Peter was uncomfortable with him dating his daughter. When Peter asked him not to have sexual relations with Meg, what was Quagmire's response? "I want to help you, Peter, I really do, but it's-- it's like you're asking a fish not to swim.
She's legal and I'm going in."

What a selfish bastard. He also lusts after Lois and tries to have sex with her. How could he call himself Peter's friend with how he acts toward him? He's a terrible character with no redeeming qualities.

In early episodes he was funny, but him hating brian and beating him up, makes him a brainless violent hypocrite. yes brian dates women for their body, but doesn't violate the law while doing that, quagmire does. him insulting his father for getting transgendered, quagmire shouldn't have anything to say about that. I don't get why joe hasn't arrest him, even though their friends.

6 Chris Griffin Chris Griffin Christopher Cross "Chris" Griffin is a fictional character from the American animated television series Family Guy.

I despise Chris. He either acts like a three year old with autism who just ate ten gallons of ice cream, an annoying kid who gets EXTREMELY angry over barely anything, or randomly "smart" (which is supposed to be funny, but is actually stupid. )

He doesn't really do much in the series and most of the things he says are things that will entertain 12 year olds (also people voting Meg you need to realise that she may not be funny but she set ups very funny situations)

Absolutely love family guy, I am a huge fan and have seen every episode, most of them several times. All of the characters are great and play a funny/important role in the television series but if there's one character that I do not find funny in most of the episodes is Chris griffin. I can't tell if his voice just really annoys me, or if I just don't find him very funny at all. I think they try too hard to make him funny or something and it just doesn't do it for me. When the family is trying to leave Italy to go back to Quahog and Chris sings the national anthem wrong I literally fast forward or mute it. Haha.

Annoying every time he shows up I cover my ears so I can't hear his obnoxious voice

7 Francis Griffin

Incredibly annoying, but he is dead, so there is no chance of him annoying the audience in future episodes.

Francis, you need to shut up. Stop berating people in Minor things. You have a nasty mind and you are an idiot. Everybody is very good and a Christian. Your assumptions are false.

His annoying talks has gone too far because he keeps calling people having bad sides and saying that people don't do Christianity well.

Just never liked him I don't know y

8 Herbert

Herbert is a child molester! Nothing about this disgusting monster of a character is even the least bit amusing. There is nothing funny about a child molester!

The other disgusting character, that is just as horrible is Glen Quagmire. He is a rapist! And I would say that it is a tie between Herbert and Quaigmire for the # 1 spot. But a child molester is worse because it involves children. Not to say rape isn't horrible but it is more traumatic for a child to be molested (or raped, however Quagmire rapes women and not children).

To have created these characters shows how disgusting people are to think these two are remotely funny. Children watch the show, which is ABSOLUTELY WRONG! If you are a parent and let your child watch this show, you need to shake your head and think about how it will affect your children's morals and personalities! Kids will and do think this behavior is acceptable and may even turn out to be a rapist or child molester because they don't know ...more

And this, my friends, is why Social Justice Warriors should not be allowed to comment. - DCfnaf

The pedophilia jokes get old after a while. Not too mention he serves no real purpose to the show.

The worst singer I've ever heard

At first I saw the humor, it was some dark take on how vulnerable kids are and how anyone could be preying on them. But then they started using him more and more and they started trying to give him some redeeming qualities. That's where I started truly hating this character because now is pedo desires are fairly well known to the other characters, and it's never really addressed. Its almost like the show is telling us it's okay to look the other way. It's time to get did of Herbert, his character crosses lines even this show should stay away from.

What kind of sick abuses their girlfriend? This duzz, he abuse quagmire's sister for a long time. Don't to live, thank God that quagmire killed that womanizing bastard his personality starts to piss my off.

I'm glad he's dead

I hate Quagmire and think he's the worst character on the show but I'm so glad he killed this guy. That's the first time I like him in a long time. But he still sucks. - pumpkin

Stupid ass cliched mouther f*****, he deserved to die

10 Bonnie Swanson

I used to think she was a good person. Hell, I even liked her mainly because she's voiced by Jennifer Tilly. But if I were to do this list myself AND do it PROPERLY, Bonnie would be high on the list - possibly even beating out Peter in how unlikable she is.

For the one thing; she openly states how dissatisfied she is with her marriage to Joe. Y'know, you'd think that an actual wife would stand by her husband's side if he was horribly disabled. But no, the only thing Bonnie cares about is the fact that they can't have sex - to wit, they CAN!

I honestly cannot believe that she was not only planning to cheat on Joe, but actually went through with it in one episode. I find it so despicable that she would betray and abandon him like that. Frankly, it revealed to me that the only reason she was even still with Joe is because she was still pregnant with Susie. Now that the kid is born, it's only a matter of time until she completely steps out on him.

Your husband is crippled and you hate him? That's sick. She should apologized to Joe when she cheated on him. And Joe apologizes to you when he neglected you but cheating is too far. You just want to go to Paris to have sex with French guys and Lois wants you to stop this cheating nonsense and do something else. But no, you just had to devote yourself to cheating! Arrgh.

She is terrible. No development, hardly any funny lines ever. Boring.

No way Tom tucker deserve to be 10 not Bonnie

11 James Woods

Good actor. Bad character.

I thought his first appearance was actually quite funny, yet he has worn out his welcome. The second time he appears felt too much the same. I was happy when they killed him off but then they just magically bring him back in such an unfunny way. - FirearmsKill

I want this bastard gone, he is so annoying and should be at least the top 5. Like I cannot believe joe didn't let Peter have his identity back when this dickhead stole it because he knew who Peter is

Love that he died in "And then there were fewer." He really isn't even that famous.

12 Carter Pewterschmidt

I honestly don't understand him at all. He doesn't care about anybody BUT himself, he cheated on Babes, his WIFE, he hates Peter for literally NO damn REASON, he uses his money and power just to get whatever he wants, and he doesn't want anybody beng happy?!

In Model Misbehaving, I think that's the name. In a flashback when Lois was explaining why she couldn't be a model, Carter acts like a huge bastard and forbids her from doing so. Almost near the end, Peter and Carter was going to get her to stop, Carter makes Pete eat a pinecone and says 'This is for Lois! ' no, no it isn't. Than when they bring her back, she refuses, but Peter was considerate and just says as long as she's ok with it he supports her. She realizes what he said, than Carter randomly says 'No daughter of MINE is ever going to be happy! ' Father of the Year, folks... At least Peter knocks him out with his fist than a lamp.

In the episode, can't remember the name, he ends up in a coma, and Peter has to ...more

I can't think of what episode it was... But in the episode Carter fills out adoption papers for a kid and then when the kid approaches the car he sees a puppy and balloons and everything a kid would want especially a kid that has never had a family, but when he tries to get in the car the door is locked and Carter mocks and taunts him as he tries to get in. Way too far come on that isn't funny.

He would allow millions of innocent people to die from cancer just to make money!

That Guy deserves to be killed by Stewie,since he spent the entire show trying to kill his mother and daughter until Stewie Kills Lois

Probably one of the only likable characters on this show.

Did he marry his cousin? Or sister? He annoys the crap out of me. In real life, I'd love to punch him.

14 Mother Maggie

No words can comprehend on how much I hate this character

"you wanna take a dump on mother Maggie's shoes? "
"ok let's go take a dump on mother Maggie's shoes."

Arrogant and selfish wihtout end, plus etremely narcissistic, she don't care but anyone else but helrself and everyone should worship her and that makes her truly disgusting,revolting, repellent, repulsive, sickening, nauseating, nauseous, stomach-churning, stomach-turning, off-putting, unpalatable, unappetizing, uninviting, unsavoury, distasteful, foul, nasty, obnoxious, odious...

15 Bertram

I think it's more of a voice thing than a character thing, but I still want to wring his wormy little neck. Bastard.

Not the best, not the worst. This is the best place

Hate him...
Only character on the show I actually do HATE. Well, him and carter maybe...

16 Connie D'Amico Connie D'Amico

Someday she'll be unpopular & gross.

I want Meg to kill Connie and kick her ass.

How come Meg, Stewie and even Peter are ABOVE Connie? Connie is an awful character! All she does is being mean to Meg and for no reason! - Svampbob164

If I could punch this little bitch in her face I would be so happy

Why would anyone put this little wanna be on Family Guy, she is in one epsisode and she is worthy of the top spot by 101%

The oly thing great and no at all uninteresting about her role on the show was Peter and Quagmire shooting her down when she was an android. She's Stewie's celebrity crush? But Stewie is smart! She made the best character in family Guy go way ou of character! Screw her! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Doesn't she even count? Whatever she's Miley Cyrus she's going to be hated no matter what

I will never like her. She's sucha wanna be, but does it in the most disgusting way possible.
