Worst Hey Arnold! Characters

The Top Ten

Big Bob Pataki

He is self-centered and seems disrespectful to Helga. And it is obvious that Helga can't stand to be around him in the Hey Arnold Quantity Time episode. Usually the outings intended for "father and daughter bonding" turned out to be to places Bob wanted to go, making it all about him. Helga wanted to go to Wrestle Mania. Sometimes I think Big Bob talks down to his wife and sees her as a pushover which may explain why she's all run down with seemingly no identity and mental strength left. So to cope with the miserable marriage, she drowns her pain in smoothies to keep it age appropriate for child viewers. Because in reality, the smoothies she downs actually represents alcohol in disguise. That's my theory on the marriage among Miriam and Big Bob. Notice that Helga resents him when he tries to order her around like the time when he was competing against Arnold's grandpa in golf after they got into a feud with each other for making each other's cars scratched. He probably orders Miriam ...more

He's got to be the most insensitive to the feelings of others. I wish a man would try to order me around like that as a wife and talk to my kid any type of way even if the kid was his son/daughter too. I'd divorce him in a heartbeat. Big Bob is clearly not husband and father material. He is divorce material that needs to be self-centered and disrespectful all by himself. Don't nobody got time for that. I am surprised Marium has not left Big Bob. No woman should have to go through that. Marriage is supposed to be a beautiful, yet imperfect thing, not a landmine of miserynlije that. I mean, look at them. They obviously are unattentive to Helga but dote on the oldest daughter Olga when she comes home from college. In one episode, Olga reveals that she is sick and tired of all that attention from Big Bob and Marium like she's some kind of windup doll on the piano. For that reason, Olga also says Helga actually has a better deal that they don't even notice her.

He's disgusting. poor helga, and why is mirium so far down the list

He's the reason why Helga is a total jerkface. - Anonymousxcxc

Olga Pataki

If she loved helga SO much, why didn't she speak up for her, why did let her parents ignore helga, olga has ugly name and she's a retard

Why does Helga's sister talk with an accent? It's weird!

Stupid spoiled entitled perfectionist whiney brat. Reminds me of someone I know.

I really can't stand her and the whole damn family with the exception of Helga.


Give him a super big spanking

Wolfgang: give me my character back.
Arnold: But I'm Arnold.

Lane Toran = Arnold always not Wolfgang.

Oskar Kokoshka

He is lazy good for nothing bearded man

Every single time this guy came on screen I would just close my eyes and shake my head and wish he was gone when I opened them

He is the only character in Hey Arnold that I hate.

He is a pathetic loser.

Rhonda Wellington Lloyd Rhonda Wellington Lloyd is a fictional character from the 90s Nickelodeon cartoon Hey Arnold. She's generally known for being rich and stuck up. Along with that she cares very deeply about fashion. Her best friend is Nadine. She generally hates people that are "geeks" and refuses to be around them or ...read more.

At Least I'm not the only one who hates her

She is a bratty version of Muffy from "Arthur" (To be honest though ' Muffy is sortta bratty.)

She should be number 1, a typically rich, snobbish, self-centered bitch that looks down on others and thinks that she's the central of the universe just because her family is rich.

Eugene Horowitz

Thinks he is the luckiest person ever and at on point considers Arnold a jinx. It's irritating that he is just too positive and weird.

So positive to the point its annoying. And not to mention the itsy bitsy spider.

I don't find him annoying at all but u know who I find really annoying who is also sweet and positive also? LILA

I hate Eugene, because he is gay and he looks like a penis.

Lila Sawyer Lila Sawyer is a fictional character from the 90s Nickelodeon cartoon Hey Arnold created by Craig Bartlett. She's generally known for being nice and kind to her classmates which disgusts Helga Pataki. She also has a crush on Arnold's cousin Arnie. In the series she's revealed to be poor next to being ...read more.

Hey Arnold is one of my favorite shows from my childhood. And, believe it or not, Big Bob, Principal Wartz, Olga, and Rhonda didn't bug me all that much. Oh sure, they had their moments where they could be pretty despicable, but the fact is they were redeemable. Lila, and I cannot stress this word enough, was the ONLY character on the show that genuinely annoyed me. Firstly, she was a Mary-Sue characters who had little to no flaws what so ever (in a show that at the end of the day was in the Slice-Of-Life genre and all the characters, including the titular one, had flaws). Another thing that was obnoxious about Lila was the way she talked. She spoke to everyone as if she were speaking to infants and that alone made me want to strangle her. Finally, there was the lovely fact that she was always (and I mean ALWAYS) happy. Look, I know as much as the next person that you generally get further in life with a smile than you do with a scowl, but at the same time, there is no ' way that you ...more

She's so annoying, and the fact that she puts on this fake Nice girl next door facade is pathetic, she acts like she's clueless but she knows EXACTLY what she's doing. She's bland, boring, and the fact that Arnold saved her from literally drowning and she literally didn't even like like him after that is pathetic.

She clearly has 0 standards considering she likes Arnold's cousin who LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE HIM, but is blander and has 0 personality exactly like her is embarrassing. Honestly I'd rather deal with Rhonda's bragging condescending attitude than her bland fake goody two-shoes personality-less personality.

I like the idea of Olga Pataki and Lila Sawyer being portrayed as sister like figures all because Lila Sawyer is a one sibling-less only single child so she's especially sister-less.

Lila knows Helga's secret so she will not steal Arnold!

Miriam Pataki

She's always drunk

The Contenders

Big Gino

The most well developed HA! character. Take this off the list, punk.

Iggy should be 1

All because he held a grudge.

All because Arnold betrayed him.

Helga Gerdaline Pataki

She is nine years old, immature. In her teens she and Arnold would date. She has a terrible family. Drunk/drugged mother, father who doesn't care about her, he always forgets how old she is, and they only love and care about her older sister.

The way some people talk about her, she's not evil, immaturity yeah she's a kid. Angelica Pickles who is Three Years Old behaved worse.

You mean a girl who has a father who doesn't even know how old she is, hates her. Her mother is drunk or a crackhead. They love their older sister more, who is ruder.

She's a bully with a bad personality. Plenty of people have a bad home life and don't act as rotten as her. I'm surprised she's not higher on the list.


Every time there's a single episode focused on Harold and Stinky, it makes them more likable.
Every time there's one focused on this kid, it makes him more... annoying.

Timberly - Hey Arnold

Willie the Jolly Olly Man
