The Top Ten

1 Barney the Dinosaur - Barney & Friends Barney the Dinosaur - Barney & Friends Barney The Dinosaur is a purple dinosaur from the TV series "Barney and Friends", as well as the VHS series before that known as "Barney and the Backyard Gang".

Bad, not the worst - iliekpiez

I had a nightmare of this character when I was little 😂 - Honeyreis

Both him and Dora should be 1st even though it would be hard to tie them at 1st

I Seriously Hate Barney - masoncarr2244

2 Dora - Dora the Exlorer Dora - Dora the Exlorer Dora is the main protagonist in the show "Dora the Explorer". Her main occupation is exploring with her monkey friend, Boots.

Don't tell anyone, but I kinda think she looks pretty as cheesy as that sounds - myusernameisthis

She is the worst fictional character ever. And she happens to be below Frieza! WOW! Pathetic. - SelfDestruct

I can see why Jar Jar is at number one, but Dora is way worse. - Anonymousxcxc

At least Barney doesn't yell like and ask stupid questions like Dora.

3 Caillou - Caillou Caillou - Caillou


A terrible influence on children.

I use to watch this when I was three-two. When I was six, I thought Caillou was stupid because he was bald and noisy and a mean brother.

When I hear Caillou theme song, I wanna break my T.V.

5 Ash Ketchum - Pokemon Ash Ketchum - Pokemon Ash Ketchum, known as Satoshi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo. Ash is training to be a Pokemon Master, with his buddy Pikachu. Ash tries to stop the evil Team Rocket from stealing his Pikachu.

Annoying. How would you feel if you were pickachu and all that your owner ever did was stuff you into a ball and then throw you out onto the ground and out of nowhere start attacking a weird creature that is three times your size.

I feel bad for Pikachu... - Asgardian

I know right. What is the deal with Pokemon any way.

Throw a pokeball at his face please - TBBTdon

6 Bubsy - Bubsy Bubsy - Bubsy Bubsy is a series of platforming video games created by Michael Berlyn and developed and published by Accolade. The games star an anthropomorphic bobcat named Bubsy, a character that takes inspiration from Super Mario Bros. and Sonic the Hedgehog.

He's the worst - ikerevievs

7 Bella Swan - Twilight

Her biggest accomplishment was to graduate high school then scare a whole generation about the perils of childbirth. Ignore her girls, it is what your body is meant to do, it is your power. But on purpose and when YOU and your husband think the time is right. Minimally you need a formal commitment to each other, an education or trade, a place to live and some common sense. Note that uber wealthy vampires are in short supply and your future as an Instagram model is pretty unlikely. If what you want is what Bella had, check out the Mormons.

No personality, huge mary sue

I've heard from people online and in real life that she's apparently really boring. - Anonymousxcxc

She Needs To Watch Inside Out To Learn How To Emote

8 Terra - Kingdom Hearts

He sucks he tried to argue with water waifu aqua

I disagree with Terra being here. The point of his character is that he was tricked by Xenoheart making him go down the wrong path, then tried to fix his mistakes when he came to his senses.

10 343 Guilty Spark - Halo

The Newcomers

? Moira Brown - Fallout 3
? Dr Robotnik/Eggman - Sonic Series

Frieza f you for killing Gokus father and namek - ikerevievs

20 SpongeBob SquarePants - SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants - SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is a fictional character and the titular character and protagonist of the American animated television series of the same name.

I'm okay with this being on the list-Mostly because he was extra frustrating to watch in the later seasons...

SpongeBob is so annoying. I can feel my brain rotting when watching him. Plus, if you look at his horror fan art, It seals the deal. (I can't believe he made it to the top fictional characters)

SpongeBob is so stupid. In one episode, he asks Squidward to join a cult. He sucks

He's lasted a good 16 years and counting. I think he's awesome and hilarious. I understand why people hate him, though. Lol!

Please, who let the kingdom hearts heaters loose tonight. Let's go into full detail to why Gordon Freeman is the worst and most overrated fictional character. The idea of him not talking in the Half Life series was so you can immerse yourself into the game, sadly this isn't the case since his presence and surroundings have no interesting things to them, you just see everyone blabber on and stare at you while you just stand there, unlike some of the other people here they have some personality to them.

Secondly, we have the fact he has an entire back story set up for him, he owns a PHD, is a famed scientists, on and on and on, but why is this "official" backstory there to exist, and I don't mean what happens in game, I mean there is literally an entire story for this guy, despite the fact he has not and will never talk. Yet people praise this dude, hell he was the top ten of Guinness World Records Top 100 Video Game Characters. A man with no personality, purpose, or voice is one ...more

This guy don't even know how to talk, please help him - TBBTdon

She's a baby brat bastard who can't throw a punch. Replace her with Pauline.
