Worst Protagonist Cartoon Characters

I was inspired by the list RoseRedFlower made, so I made this

The Top Ten

1 Barney The Dinosaur Barney The Dinosaur 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". He was created by Sheryl Leach in 1987, to entertain her 2 year old son. He is infamously known for his "I Love You" song, and his TV series ...read more.
2 Ben - Ben 10 Omniverse

Is he really that bad? I haven't watched Ben 10 for years now, but from what I remember he wasn't a very bad character. - Goku02

3 Caillou - Caillou Caillou - Caillou

I wanna throw a building at that brat.. - TwilightKitsune

4 Lloyd - Ninjago

What an annoying little crap. Makes you want to throw a brick at him. - TwilightKitsune

5 Dora - Dora the Explorer Dora - Dora the Explorer Dora is the main protagonist in the show "Dora the Explorer" her main occupation is exploring with her monkey friend Boots .

She's got to be the stupidest character ever created! - Goku02

6 Horrid Henry - Horrid Henry Horrid Henry - Horrid Henry

I liked the books, but the show is garbage - TwilightKitsune

7 Lincoln Loud - The Loud House Lincoln Loud - The Loud House

An annoying brat who act like a beggar to his parents just because his sisters made many problems to him. Even Danny Phantom still loves Jazz unlike Lincoln. - ChatNoirFan18

He always whines all the times just because his sisters are annoying. He is not my favorite. - ChatNoirFan18

I think I kinda hate The Loud House now - Neonco31

8 Sanjay - Sanjay and Craig

Argh! No explanation about this one! He is disgusting, annoying, and insane! Who would want to befriend him and Craig, his disgusting snake?! - ChatNoirFan18

9 Eustace - Courage The Cowardly Dog

My least favorite character from Courage. Seriously, what is wrong with him?! He keeps abuses Courage every episodes even though Courage never made a biggest problems of him! I bet he abuses Courage because he just jealous that Courage get attention from Muriel than him. - ChatNoirFan18

10 Madoka Kaname - Puella Magi Madoka Magica Madoka Kaname - Puella Magi Madoka Magica Madoka Kaname is the titular protagonist of the 2011 anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica and its related media.

Who added her? - ChatNoirFan18

The Contenders

11 Makoto Itou - School Days Makoto Itou - School Days

Stop adding anime characters on a list about cartoon characters - Rue

That creepy picture makes me wanna HATE this show even more! - Carsrule300

Self explanatory. - Goku02

12 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.

Even with the misconception that Pokemon is a cartoon, Ash is an anime protagonist. Get him off here. - Rue

Why can't they make May or Dawn the protagonist? - TwilightKitsune

Who added this here? - Neonco31

13 Kion - The Lion Guard Kion - The Lion Guard A lion cub who's the son of Simba and Nala, Mufasa's grandson, Kiara's younger brother, the prince of the Pride Lands, and the leader of the Lion Guard. He's the group's fiercest member. Kion serves as the main protagonist of the series.

Doesn't the whole Lion Guard thing sound kinda fanfic-y in the first place? Granted that parts of Lion King II sound fanfic-y as well but at least they don't overdo it like Lion Guard does. It's like yeah remember when Scar was a Lion Guard leader? No. Or hey remember that time in Lion King II when Kiara had a brother? No. So many plot holes. - Anonymousxcxc

14 Robin - Teen Titans Go! Robin - Teen Titans Go!
15 Norman Price - Fireman Sam
16 Pico - Boku no pico Pico - Boku no pico

I think this needs no explanation... - Goku02

17 Courage the Cowardly Dog Courage the Cowardly Dog

No way. He is not a worst protagonist. I know he may be annoying, but his love to Muriel made me like him. He saves Muriel a lot from dangers. He is not an overpowered hero, but he is not worst. He saves Muriel because he loves her, not because fame or bad things. - ChatNoirFan18


18 Simba - The Lion King Simba - The Lion King Simba is a fictional character who appears in Disney's The Lion King franchise. Introduced in Walt Disney Animation's 32nd animated feature film The Lion King (1994), the character subsequently appears in its sequels The Lion King II: Simba's Pride (1998) and The Lion King 1½ (2004).
