Top 10 Worst Gaming Characters

A list of the most hated, unfair, annoying, and/or stupid characters in video game history.

The Top Ten

1 The Dog (Duck Hunt)

I never actually tried to shoot the ducks. I was always trying to shoot this creepy dog. And I love dogs. I can quite safely say that this is the only time I've wanted to kill a dog this badly. In smash I loved beating the "duck" out of him.

Shut up, shut up, just stop laughing and shut up you hellhound. I want to kill this mutt so much and I am a huge dog person.

ALL this dog does in duck hunt is when you shoot a duck it grabs it but what happens if the duck was bloody and stuff and you are gonna pick it up and laugh at the dead duck I hate you.

I was grateful when he was announced in Smash. Now I can give that dog what he deserves. The only thing that would make this complete is if Solid Snake is in SSB4. - TheYoshiOverlord

2 Jasper Batt Jr. (No More Heroes 2)

In real life, he is just a whiny old baby.

He is so hard to beat

He freaks me out

Heck to the yes, baby! Jasper is a rich corporate idiot tool of a kid with huge buck teeth and his role in No More Heroes 2 was one of the most unfair final bosses ever. His first form is easy, but then his health stops depelting! Then, he goes to Contra difficult and keeps spamming undodgeable atacks. Then, when you finally defeat that, his final phase is... A parade ballon. Plus, his voice in intolerable. And he doesn't scream in agony when he dies. In fact, he has a grin on his face. Why!? I hate him! - bubbles1111

3 Bubsy (Bubsy Series) Bubsy (Bubsy Series) 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.

I actually think bubsy is kinda cute

Bubsy:"What could possibly go wrong? "

The character isn't that bad, but his games... Awful. They have bad controls, visuals, and acting. - bubbles1111

Who thought this was a good idea

4 Eric Sparrow (Tony Hawk's Underground)

Ugh. That guy definitely deserved that punch in the face.

This guy sucks screw him

He is definitely the backstabbing cockroach, I loved how Tony punched him with blood flying out of eric.

5 Porky (Mother 3)

Porky's story: He was bored so he decided to massacre Lucas' family for no reason and create an army of pigmasks using the bodies of many from different timelines, which could possibly include Ness and Ninten, and the worst part, his defeat isn't satisfying, because he never dies thanks to immortality and the Absolutely Safe Capsule, or the Prick Protection Pod, not to mention Claus was turned into the Masked Man, and the battle with him ended in premature suicide. Porky is also a brat, which explains things.

Porky is pure evil. And not in a good way. Porky killed Luca's mother and Claus! He's obese and acts like a brat. - bubbles1111

He killed Lucas's mother and his brother Claus just because HE WAS BORED. And where did he get the money to buy all that equipment. That proves that porky is a SPOILED BRAT.

He is the worst character ever -

6 That Beetle (Donkey Kong 64)

The racing beetle from DK64 is torture. You have to collect 50 coins and beat this unfair beetle. You lose 3 coins every time you touch him, so it's almost impossible to win. And when you lose, he says "You're just too slow. " I don't want another Sonic! Grr... - bubbles1111

U R 2 slo! The beetle

7 Waluigi (Mario Series) Waluigi (Mario Series) Waluigi is a selfish, greedy man who works closely with the infamous Wario. He is Luigi's rival and is known as the opposite of him. Waluigi first appeared in the Gameboy Color game, Mario Tennis as Wario's partner. He has appeared in every Mario Tennis game since, still remaining as Wario's partner. more.

How dare yooou!

I have no more problems with this guy, but I just don't understand him. He's really bland compared to Mario. Waluigi has no trademark characteristics and serves no purpose. It's unfortunate that they wasted their time with this character and Daisy since they're not going to do anything with either of them (which is bogus)! At least Daisy has personality and has been in one Mario game though. - DCfnaf

I hate him because he always threw me in the lake in Mario bros. turns out it was my bro pranking me but I still hate waluigi to this day

He's the shameful one!

8 Dormin (Shadow of the Colossus)

This guy made me anger

9 Rosalina (Mario series) Rosalina (Mario series) Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She first appeared in the popular Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 for the Nintendo Wii and later returned for the game's sequel in 2010 . Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games more.

She used to be a good character in the Galaxy games. After that Nintendo forced her into everything and changed her personality into sassy and upbeat, unlike the calm and loving personality in SMG and SMG2. And then her fans... Oh, the fans. They're 10 year olds that rub her in your face all the time.


I'm not a ten year old, but I'd like to say this. Rosalina is awesome. I do agree that she shouldn't be sassy, but she can be upbeat because when she's racing, I don't think she can go "yey". It was not necessary to make her the way she was in 3D World. They should've had her more relaxed like "I got you bro". Her fans and Daisy's fans are REALLY annoying. I'm still glad I get to play as her in the games. - DCfnaf

If she stayed true to her story she wouldn't be as horrible as she is right now.

10 Luigi (Super Mario Bros Series) Luigi (Super Mario Bros Series) Luigi is a fictional character featured in video games and related media released by Nintendo. Created by prominent game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Luigi is portrayed as the slightly younger but taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Mario more.

Hey shut up about luigi

Luigi Sucks And Is Overrated, Mario And Tails Are A Lot Better Than This Dumby

If you wanna call someone a retarded fat idiot, say it to big the cat - Sanicball

Y U HAIT LUIGI I LIEK LOOKING AT PORN PICTUREZ OF HIM - Idiot Luigi Fan/MatPat Fan/Mario Hater - VideoGamefan5

The Contenders

11 Kaepora Gaebora (Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask)

This menace is freakishly annoying! He tells you stuff that you already know and when you try to end it, you accidentally click Repeat and he'll say it all again. But at least he GIVES help... - bubbles1111

12 Flappy Bird (Flappy Bird)

Yes this is the worst ever

Meh. I just posted a comment but don't ragequit on him that he is a bird learning how to fly.

Imagine yourself being a bird and don't knowing to fly.

13 Mario (Mario Series) Mario (Mario Series) Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super more.

What remove him from this list right now

Mario abuses animals

No! I understand that some people thinks he mental because of game theory's "Mario is mental," but if you ask me, I disagree. In Mario & Luigi Partners in time, it shoes that Mario has goodness in his heart. So please don't thinks he's mental, cause he's a great character. - nintendofan126

Thanks for calling out "Mario is Mental" for being nonsense, but I disagree that Mario is a good character. He's too bland and has an annoying voice. - Treacle

Mario is mental

14 Navi (The Legend of Zelda Series) Navi (The Legend of Zelda Series)

I only hear her once every, like, 10 minutes?

I don't think she's that bad at all...


How is she not number 1? I HATE THAT LITTLE FAIRY!

15 Mr. Resetti (Animal Crossing) Mr. Resetti (Animal Crossing)

In smash brawl, he's really annoying. The chat bar shows up AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN.

The worst I hate him

The worst character ever he's a ass should be in the number 1 spot and was programmed to be a ass

Viridi: There's a mole going around punishing cheaters!
Pit: Resetti!

16 Big the Cat (Sonic Series) Big the Cat (Sonic Series)

He was just an advertisement for Sega's fishing game, which likely failed. In a game about speed, not only was he slow, but all he did was stay in one spot and make you wait for his frog. Sonic lore wise, he doesn't really exist: his greatest plot move was getting his frog stolen and stealing Tails' plane in the worst plot ending ever.
However, his greatest throw-away was his gameplay. His levels either took hours or were over due to the awkward controls in under a minute due to the levels being tiny, but fortunately there were only four. Either way, the undersized levels, unexplained appearance, plot insignificance, and broken experience of Big sets him as the worst Sonic character to randomly appear out of nowhere.

PS: His voice was truly the worst part, like a drunken zombie slurring out "I cawt a fesh! " and more.

That cat is absolutely retarded, fat, lazy and annoying he always looses his pathetic frog and he fishes for him.If Big gets even more retarded I will burn him up together with froggy

No character from Sonic irritates me more than Big the stinking cat. All Big does is go fishing. That's right. Fishing. All he ever did was find his best friend Froggy, which actually has more purpose than Big because Froggy actually posseses Chao. - bubbles1111

This guy was annoying and in sonic adventure fishing for froggy was so boring plus why is mario on this list?

17 Tidus (Final Fantasy) Tidus (Final Fantasy)

In Tidus's defense, if your home and everyone you knew and loved was destroyed in one day, you'd be a little whiny too.

I hated this one laughing scene. Even Auron is better than this chap. His costume is horrible. He looks more like a poor plumber than a typical football player. There are things I didn't like about Tidus, but there are couple characters that are worst than him. It's Seymour Guado. That's another comment for another day.

If you want annoying,try Yuffie from FF7

18 Princess Elise (Sonic the Hedgehog 2006)


Elise is nothing but a Peach clone.

I hate Nintendo and I hate her

19 Pink Gold Peach (Mario Kart 8) Pink Gold Peach (Mario Kart 8)

Make her #1. - lamourieparkinson

NINTENDO...can you really be THIS LAZY? Come on, this is not necessary! - DCfnaf

Metal Peach

20 Reaver (Fable III)

Okay, Boss time. I hate this guy, it will be a pleasure to... What? Reaver? You killed him? How-"I'm sorry, did you want to kill him"? Oh no, but to be honest, YES! You're a spack, you know that?!

He is a complete a hole and I hate him so much. Rrr. He is such a b*tch

21 Peach (Mario Series) Peach (Mario Series) Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is the lead female of the The Mario franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario more.

Nothing but an ass for Mario to chase. She's the biggest ditz in gaming, and despite many attempts to kidnap her, she does nothing to increase the Mushroom kingdom security. With how many coins you guys have all over the kingdom, why not get better tech? Or hell, get some PMCs to replace those awful Toad Guards. Just the worst ruler in gaming history.

Why is she in mario games? She sounds like some one year old voice never reached puberty. Yuck daisy is better

Not really. Daisy's personality is way more interesting, but Peach has tons of secrets about the kingdom and hardly reveals them unless there's an emergency. So basically as far as I'm concerned, I'd give them the same rating. - DCfnaf

Peach you suck you're trying to get Mario and the gang KILLED all the time!

You think Peach is bad? Encase her in pink gold and you have PINK GOLD PEACH! - computerfan0

22 Baby Mario (Mario Series) Baby Mario (Mario Series)

Leave him alone for five seconds and he'll get abducted.

I agree. He doesn't do anything, except scream at you when you get attacked. Also, he gets taken to Bowser's Castle, the same place that you want to get to. I'd just follow him to the castle, storm in, and
Kill Bowser.

I called him stupid when I was playing mario cart

The worst

24 Ninten (Mother)
25 Toad (Mario Series) Toad (Mario Series) Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He assists Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom and will do whatever it takes to help her. He first appeared in the classic game, USA exclusive Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES. Since then he has been a reoccurring more.

Look at all the Mario characters at the top of this list. u people really just hate everything about this series, admit it. - Nonpointed

He's useless not only that but he told me your princess is in another castle 4 TIMES! The only reason to why people like him is because they think he's cute.

He's been flipping us off for years, and we discovered this only recently.

Why the hell is pacman on here he is iconic! Well in pacman two he was a jerk and if your taling about that pacman then that makes sence but that was the only jerky pacman and toad and slippy are completely usless!

26 Mr. Dream (Punch Out)

That 1 KO hit is so annoying, you have to wait till 1:30 and his 1 KO hit will be over.

27 Lester (Lester the Unlikely)

Scared of turtles.. I guess turtles are scary at all (sarcasm)

28 Woolie Bubsy (Bubsy)

Wow this character is so hated it's even on here twice. - MasterCreepy

29 Slippy Toad (Star Fox) Slippy Toad (Star Fox)

I've never even played star fox and I know how evil slippy is

I can't believe Slippy wasn't on this list. Here's a typical gameplay scenario:

3 seconds later…


5 seconds later…

This is really starting to tick me off!

Another 5 seconds pass and…


*Shoots Slippy until his health meter is empty*

I'm monkey food if I don't leave!

Slippy is the most annoying, immature, and stupidest video game character I've ever dealt with. He should be #1. - railfan99

30 Alec Trevelyan (GoldenEye) Alec Trevelyan (GoldenEye) Alec Trevelyan was a former 00 Agent of Don Cossack descent and head of the Janus Crime Syndicate. He serves as the primary villain of the 1995 film GoldenEye and was portrayed by British actor Sean Bean. Formerly 006, he faked his death at the Arkangelsk Chemical Warfare Facility, commandeered by General more.
31 Sonic (Sonic the Hedgehog) Sonic (Sonic the Hedgehog) Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by SEGA, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

That’s for putting Mario on the list

He's mean abuses tails, an ass to Amy, the fanbase is cancer, horrible control and has been dead since 2006.

Yeah. I hate Sonic. 1st off because his character annoys me, 2nd off because his games and Sonic himself are pretty inconsistent, and 3rd off, Sonic fans will lose their minds if you hate Sonic as a character. Which is annoying, and stupid. Who cares if I dislike this character?

I truly hate this character so much.

32 Count Veger (Jak and Daxter)
33 Goldeen (Pokemon) Goldeen (Pokemon)

Okay, I'm genuinely confused as to how this happened. Like, I'm not even mad, but... How? Just, how..?

34 343 Guilty Spark (Halo)

Ahh, definitely. Why can't we defeat someone like... Dr. Evil? Halo, we are not impressed. Guilty Spark is barely a main character; yet, he is the villain. Why not toss Joker in with 2 assault rifles? Or Ali G with his AK-47s? Even Darth Vader! 343 is not evil at all, mostly a good character. With a high voice.

He's not really a villain, he isn't sinister. Or evil. He has no humour and just gets annoying. Definitely should be at least 5.

35 Charmy Bee (Sonic Series)

Shut up. Shut up. Shut up. Shut up. Shut up. Shut up. Shut up. Shut up. There, that should describe that little twit.

Charmy is annoying as hell in sonic heroes I don't have the game and I haven't played it but I'm planning to get for playstation2

36 Moneybags (Spyro Series)

This money hogger always made you pay money on your quest, from opening new passageways to unlocking new characters. His voice is annoying, too. At leas tin the end of one of the games you get all your money back. - bubbles1111

37 Daisy (Mario Series) Daisy (Mario Series) Princess Daisy is a fictional character in the Mario series of video games, in which she is the princess of the fictional region of Sarasaland.

Her voice causes cancer.

Big surprise. Daisy doesn't serve any purpose nowadays and it's such a shame. She has a very interesting personality but that's it. She's underdeveloped and unpopular. It's sad, but you guys should accept that she's not going to get developed anymore and neither is Waluigi. - DCfnaf

I think she's awesome and her, Risalina and Luigi shouldn't be hated.

This brat sure has a rotten attitude -_-

38 The Church Guy (Left 4 Dead)

What an idiot. To quote Bill, "I can't believe we're arguing for our lives with a damn mental moron! " And as if summoning a horde isn't bad enough, he also turns into a special infected after the fact.

Idiot. His voice is annoying, and all he did was send waves of zombies at you with his damn bell! He so got what he deserved, turning into a zombie!

39 Nazeem (The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim) Nazeem (The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)

He constantly talks down to you in an annoying way, and he has an annoying nasal voice.

Do you get to the Cloud District very often?

40 Link (Legend of Zelda Series) Link (Legend of Zelda Series) Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

Sure he's the best, but no memorable though, not popular as other characters like Master Chief

Link doesn’t talk because he is supposed to represent the player. I am the player. I hate myself. Therefore, I hate Link.

He is good

What an overrated character. I hate him! I hate him! Why do people like him? I will never understand.

42 Amy (Sonic)

Minebaggel. your baby much

Much better than Peach. At least Amy can defend herself. - MasterCreepy

Shut up shut up she can defend herself! so she is the best! - Minebaggel

43 Gary Oak (Pokemon Series) Gary Oak (Pokemon Series) Gary oak appeared in the anime series in seasons 1-5 . He was ash's rival and childhood friend . Though they had a dispute once they fought over a rusty pokeball they wanted for luck, which broke after they fought over it . Gary was the grandson of professor oak . He had cheerleaders & his own car. more.

His one liners make me aggressive, but "Smell Ya Later! " makes me ferocious. He picks the starter that counters yours, and wirse, he has an Anime counteroart. In Black 2 and White 2, he makes me even more ferocious by using Aerodactyl instead of Pidgeot in the World Tournament. It has higher Physical Attack and Speed than Pidgeot. And he gets help from Gen 5 moves. Get an Aerodactyl at a higher level than Gary if you fight him in the World Tournament. Die Gary.

With his irritating one-liners and always getting the better Pokemon, Gary Oak is AWFUL. Why 10? He was essential as the villain, so that's why he's lower. - bubbles1111

44 Yuri (Modern Warfare 3)

Who put Gary oak on here? He kicks ass! Was the guy who did it high or something? Geez...

45 Tingle (The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker)
46 Gordon Freeman (Half-Life) Gordon Freeman (Half-Life) Dr. Gordon Freeman is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Half-Life video game series, created by Gabe Newell and designed by Newell and Marc Laidlaw of Valve Corporation.

The most overrated game character ever.

He's the hero for Lambda Resistance in battle between the Resistance and Combine, he's also can fight his way to Lambda core, even though Black Mesa is already filled with HECU soldiers and Xen Creatures, he is also defeated Nihilanth, later fleed the Vortigaunts, Gordon Freeman can do such a lot of things, with only a single small Crowbar and heavy Gravity-gun also with regular HEV suits to describe how strong the Gordon Freeman is. Gordon Freeman is one of the most memorable character with Half-Life series, he may quiet, but remember what kind of job that he had done

He's the hero for the Resistance in the battle with Combine, He's also can fight his way through Lambda Complex, even though the Black Mesa is already filled with HECUs and Xens, He also can defeat the Xen's leader: Nihilanth, and later fleed the Vortigaunts, Gordon can do such a lot of things, with only a small crowbar, heavy gravity-gun, and regular HEV suit, this character is very memorable (doesn't good as master chief though, because Half-Life series is still a small game franchise)

47 Dante (DmC: Devil May Cry)

What? Dante is best video games character. How you pot him here?

48 Bowser Jr. (Mario series) Bowser Jr. (Mario series) Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. As his name implies, he is the son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

Has and undeserved fanbase and he's an annoying little BRAT! WHY AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO HATES HIM!? WHY?!?

49 Ghetsis (Pokemon Black/White) Ghetsis (Pokemon Black/White) Ghetsis Harmonia, or simply Ghetsis, is the main antagonist in Pokemon Black and White and the direct sequels, as well as the adoptive father of N, Concordia, and Athea.
