Top 10 Worst Simpsons Characters
The Top Ten
What used to be one of the most likeable characters has slowly evolved season by season into the most hated. Newer seasons involve Lisa taking the moral high ground on nearly every topic, and criticises everyone that doesn't share her view. In older seasons, Lisa wasn't the person to make funny remarks, but she certainly knew how to make a scene its funniest. Her insight concluded episodes in the best possible way and had a huge impact on the also lost heart-warming scenes; her performances left you in tears. Now, Lisa is a boring character with most episodes centred towards her, and even some times having whole episodes dedicated to her on boring issues. Although Lisa is a family member of the Simpsons, she isn't the centre of the family, and because of this focus she has turned into the character that nobody likes.
If you want to know what's wrong with Lisa, all you have to do is watch the S08 E21 The Old Man and the Lisa.
After helping Mr. Burns regain his wealth by opening a recycling plant, and finding out that Burns also included a way to catch fish in large amounts in order to create "Little Lisa's patented animal slurry" she was outraged because it went against her veganism.
When Mr. Burns returns to give her the 10% she was owed for being his adviser, she does as Marge instructs her. She follows her conscience. Refusing the 1.200.000 dollars thereby giving Homer 4 simultaneous heart attacks, and later informing him on his hospital bed that 10% of 120.000.000 isn't 12.000, but 1.2 mil.
All of this doesn't change the fact that the damage is done, and Burns will continue his operation, so not taking the money is not an act of principle, but irrationality.
She's elfish, egotistical, irrational, prone to moral grandstanding little know-it-all. And where as her ...more
Lisa actually used to be a likeable character, although not too many peoples favorite. She used to be a voice of reason and pretty much the only logical one most of the time. The writers made her so awfully annoying by having her be so smug and confident of her "moral superiority", intellect, faith (or lack of) and ideas, believing that anyone else is wrong. Probably one of the worst offenses of this is in "Lisa the Vegetarian" when she first becomes one. There's nothing wrong with making her a vegetarian, the problem is she instantly became too preachy. She decides to ruin a barbecue hosted by the family just for serving meat. Another example is in "Lisa the Skeptic". Marge tells her that she believes in angels which prompts Lisa to say that she thought Marge was an intelligent person, which insinuates that by Marge believing in angels she is stupid. - FirearmsKill
She is a good example of a stuck up - Spongehouse
Marge is a nag, a hypocrite, vindictive, a control freak, and stubborn to an almost belligerent degree. In one of the earliest episodes of the entire series, Marge willingly spends time with a seductive bowler just because she feels Homer doesn't respect her enough. He even comes right out and asks her to spend the night with him, and she agrees - only finally deciding against it days later when she's already in the car on the way to his house. ONE episode later she throws Homer out of the house, screaming, crying and questioning whether he has a soul, because he was encouraged to dance with a (clothed) bellydancer for a few seconds at a coworker's bachelor party (which she only discovered because she let Bart wander unsupervised in the same restaurant).
In another episode Marge demands that Homer go to a couple's therapy retreat because he got drunk at her house party. Once there Marge complains about Homer so much that the others in attendance begin to fall asleep. Speaking ...more
And what's funny about Homer getting drunk at the house party is when a season earlier, in the episode "There's No Disgrace Like Home" (the one where Homer forces everyone to go to therapy), Marge gets drunk in public, but Homer doesn't get excessively angry with her about it. - KalloFox34
She ruins everything fun that the rest of the family does. She destroyed the burlesque house, the fighting sport thing (forget the name), itchy&scratchy all because SHE didn't like it. She thinks that nobody should be able to enjoy anything that she doesn't enjoy. She barely does anything funny, actually, she makes the show LESS funny.
And that episode where she didn't liked Homer doing piracy and made the most stupid thing ever made in the show by reimbursing the money of the pirate movie to Hollywood, and causing Homer to go to Jail. I never hated her more than in that moment.
As an atheist, I really hate when Marge forces her narrow-minded, annoying religious views on her family.
When Homer is sleeping, she still takes it upon herself to force Homer to get up for church EVEN when it's too cold outside "It's church, you have to go". And then, when Homer rips his pants, she groans when Homer opts to stay home, when yet it is really cold outside, and also the church's furnace isn't working.
Then, she refuses to accept Homer's arguments for giving up church - like, "what's the point of going to some building every Sunday", and praying for the God to show Homer "the error of his ways", when the God tells Homer that he has a point.
Then, when Bart asks Marge why they have to go to church when Homer gets to stay home, she just dodges the question and claims that "she has a responsibility to raise the kids right, and that unless Homer changes his ways, she'll have to tell them that he's wicked". And tells ...more
She is actually one of my favorite characters on this show - Spongehouse
Patty and Selma always harass Homer, I think that before they seemed funny to me even if they didn't contribute anything to the show, they are bad with men, now I hate Patty because she is bad with Selma and doesn't let her have a normal life.
It was between Patty and Terri/Carrie. The sad thing is that I actually like Selma as a character, she wants to better herself and be happy. Patty on the other hand, knows how cold-hearted she is, has accepted it, and does nothing to change it. She might be funnier than Terri/Carrie, but they never have more than like a 10 second role. Also, Lisa doesn't deserve this much hate, many of the best more dramatic Simpsons episodes have revolved around her. Admittedly, they did take her reputation as the voice of reason character and used it to be very preachy in later seasons, but she had a lot of good moments. Also, I still think the Simpsons is still a good show, it's just the bar was set so high that even an 8/10 show looks like crap next to early Simpsons.
Either of Marge's sisters deserve this title! They exist solely to bring misery to others, though their main target is Homer (not that he doesn't deserve it from time to time, but I can't enjoy it, they're such festering piles of hate). - MortalAnonymous
Part of liking the Simpsons is hating Patty and Selma!
So mean and so boring. Really should of died instead of Maude Flanders.
Maude Flanders died because of her Voice Actress Contract Expires or Something - WWEWBMortalKombatFan
She is a worser female character than Lisa and Marge.
Patty and Selma are similar just want Marge to break up with Homer. Remember when they lock Homer up in a room and the key is in a lollipop and he can't lick it to get it.

God she's so annoying
I hope a car runs her over.
Where do I start? first of all, he only cares about his stupid grades, second of all, he's a hypocrite and he doesn't care about anyone (not even my favourite character, Bart) third of all, he's just an ignorant idiot and his voice is absolutely UNBEARABLE! fourth of all, he's just there to be your average boring background character. Fifth of all, he's very annoying. Martin is awful. he's cheaply written as a character, his voice stinks, he's really ugly, he looks like someone the Wolverine would eat (and that's a good character if you ask me) Bart, if you're looking for someone to prank, Martin is one of those people. If I was his dad, then I'd send him to military school. If I was one of his friends, then I'd kick him right in the balls. Martin is one of those people that I just despise and if he's gonna end up in another Simpsons episode, I'd tell Matt Groening to kill him off. Yes, he's that bad.
How can this despicable character be a discount Ralph Wiggum when they're both in the SAME UNIVERSE?!
They really missed the mark when they banned Apu when it turns out, he was never really the true character we needed to move.
Also, props to the people in this comments writing about stuff by introducing us to the topic with, "Where do I start? "
Guys, he will probably be a retired character now.
or a non speaking role just on the bus and in the school or maybe because he is supposed to be a brain box say he went to that school for geniuses that Bart went to when he changed his name on the IQ test or just middle school.
Martin Is a Little Stuck-Up Snob, He Only Cares About Himself and His Grades
She's funny. she is also kind of rude to homer but patty is worse
Rude to Homer but maybe because she's under the influence of Patty? All Selma wants to do is get married and have a normal life, for that I can't hate her.
Take Selma off! All she wants is to get married and have a normal life, unlike Patty who just exists to be rude.
Selma > Patty
Skinner in the Classic era was one of the best characters... Not only he was Bart's foil, but also a man that even when he can be cynical, deep down has sweetness that is not shown very often. He is a huge victim of flanderization: he was always a dorky momma's boy, but much like Flanders religion, his mommy issues grew in his character like a tumor... In the Classic years he was more a mild mannered man with a hard past in the Vietnam war, and since season 10 or so, they made him a just a pathetic wet blanket of a man.
And because of his flanderization, his dynamic with Bart and the rest of the characters are not as funny or interesting as they used to be... just predictable.
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall
He is an odd fellow, but I must say he steams a good ham
Bart's right! Skinner is a wiener! - Goatworlds
He doesn't have much character development other than being good which kinda makes him a tacky Gary Stu.
The only funny thing about him was when he was scared by a moth
I don't get what is wrong with him. If any one ned Flanders. Same with rod
No chat etcher development so he's boring and mundane
Simpsons parody of Judge Judy.
Guys, she was made to be the worst, stop putting dick charcters as bad characters. If there's anything, Characters meant to be pro-opinion characters, but come out awful (LISA) are the ones to be voted bad.
Marge said it best, she’s a butthole
She actually resided in a case that she was the plaintiff. That's illegal because it violates the constitutional right to a fair trial.
Why is he on this. Everybody that voted for him is one of those over sensitive people who hate because he is "evil" and "mean". That's the funny and unique part to his character, otherwise, it's like having no villain in a film just because "he's a big ol' meany".
Mr. Charles Burns is awesome
Why is Mr Burns on this list? He is number #3 on best character list laugh out loud
Mr burns is by far the worst character in the simpsons. He doesn't have a heart. Think about who shot mr burns. How can you not hate this guy
I really enjoyed the moment when Skinner beats him and his goons.
The guy is a straight up Jackass who doesn't seem to have anything better to do than to either be Mr. Burns' go-to lawyer, or just show up and tell everyone about "Copyrighted Songs/Material" that nobody ever gives a damn about; Somebody please, put a bullet in this guy.
Too astute and professional. One dimensional character.
He has an annoying voice and he ruins everything. They need to kill him off!
Burn it with fire, PLEASE.
He's so ugly, he looks like he's evil.
Get him out of the show
Fatty Fatty Fat Fat
Honestly two annoying bigheaded brats with annoying voices.
Brats. Brats to the core. They only liked Lisa cause she had a pool in one episode. Typical spoilt brat cliche!
But funny in I think was their first episode (Season 1 Homer's Odyssey - Homer becomes safety inspector) Mrs Krabappel Bart be more like Sherri and Terri now they know how to behave. Little halos appear over their head and then they kiss Bart to his horror he yells.
He is not seen verey much so you can't really say but by the way maggie is not the worst character
Once a narcissistic rat, always a narcissistic rat.
This guy should be number 1. He is an annoying creepy jerk who ruins everything. He is not even a big part of the show. He should be killed off.
Artie is very filthy and arrogant. Marge made the right devision to take Homer as man.
He gives nerds a bad. Name
What a creep! Mulhouse is probably closet, as his first kiss was Homer and he actually liked it (Homer was disturbed)! Lisa doesn't deserve a creep like Milhouse; she deserves better. She deserves someone like Nelson, who has a sensitive side.
Lisa and Nelson > Lisa and unknown > Lisa and Milhouse
Lisa and Milhouse is a bad match. Not going to work out. But Lisa and Nelson match perfectly.
The simpsons is a comedy show, and Millhouse is the only person I haven't laughed at yet, apart from lisa. It was close between voting between Millhouse and lisa, and now that I'm thinking of it lisa is my least favourite
This kid is annoying and is constantly spewing nonsense at better characters. There are so many more deserving characters that fans don't seem to like, Sideshow Mel for example.
Nelson is a better match for Lisa, than Milhouse.
Lisa and Nelson > Lisa and Milhouse
She is an awful wife and a neglectful mother. Kirk was a bit hard on her in the episode they divorced but I think it was because she was just an awful mom. Milhouse should live with Kirk in his apartment. - 445956
Poor Kirk. Kirk deserves better. And Luann deserves worse!
I want to punch her. What did Kirk ever do to her
She's really rude to Marge in one episode. She's a terrible mother and character who serves no point and is useless she only exists for cheap jokes by Milhouse and Dad
I'm surprised nobody has made any homophobic comments. - DapperPickle
He loves mr burns but never tells him or does anything about it so he's useless
Hates and loves all the employes
I am waiting to see him eradicate burns from existence
He is quite annoying and he fakes being poor and sad to get advantages like when he hustled Lisa or lived with Marge and got a good house I just don't like him - thomaszhu4
I like Gil. He's a funny character.
He's alright but he's a poor man's Lionel Hutz
Gil is alright, not as bad as millhouse that's for sure
Poor fella, he's the guy you ought to feel sorry for.
What's wrong with hans moleman all his purpose is is getting tortured, or is that literally the reason you hate him
His name is Corky James Jones, and he is not a Sr. Its Kearney who is a dad - 445956
That Jimbo jerk bullies everyone for no reason and same with his other 2 friends (who are also jerks).
He doesn't really do anything.
A uselesss unfunny unfunctional joke machine isn't funny and unwanted
How dare you put him on this list because he is the best character
He killed Bart in a Treehouse of Horror segment - queeniifan
AWESOMELY AMAZING CHARACTER. He isn't overrated. I feel like there aren't enough episodes about him. He is definitely in my top five characters on the show. He's diabolical, cultured, hilarious, clever, and has an english accent! What can be better?
What the heck he's hilarious
Kang is boring and he is irritating
He was mean in like, the very beginnings of the show. He is now considered one of Bart's best friends. - 445956
I used to not like him in old Simpsons, but then newer Simpsons came along and I started liking him.
I like his laugh
Worst character ever. Gets away with everything. Sleeps with women when he has a wife. He's a minipulative cheating bastard who needs to be killed off the show
Worst character ever, constantly breaking law and getting away with it just because he's the stupid mayor. Not to mention he's sexist and thinks he's the boss of every thing and also he's voice is sooo irritating.
I don't think he is one of the worst characters, but his flanderization is a proof that killing Maude was a big mistake. After that, they only dedicated to make stuff that goes totally against the satire and edge his character originally embodied. He is supposed to be Homer's foil, but yet the writers since season 11 forgot that the point of his character is that he is supposed to be an unicorn of warm spirits and good intentions in a world of people like Homer.
He is a christian extremist - ElSherlock
Ned thinks everything is bad
I HATE THIS DUDE SO MUCH
She's also mean to others around her - ElSherlock
She is a mean mother, but she's honestly pretty hilarious. I can't help but feel amused whenever she says "Seymour" - 445956
Agnes Skinner is just cruel to Seymour for no reason. Not funny and very unlikable.
She's a person who thinks that's she's tougher than anyone. It's annoying.
The episode with her in it was made way before its topic was relevant - 445956
She judged and told everyone when homer took the gummy off her pants
He's Matt Groening's least favorite character so...
I hate him
Stupidest character that will take us to our graves - FreddyFazStark123
I feel very sorry for Kristy the Clown fans (especially Bart) because little kids look up to him as a role model and doesn't even know that Krusty smokes, takes too much drugs, etc. He is also a terrible father to his own daughter and only about himself.
He is not really that funny, but his voice is incredibly irritating, plus his character has always been dull and uninteresting.
Any episode that's focused on Krusty is just repeatable and are all the same just slightly different with the writing.
NEVER TELL ME IF ANY SIMPSONS CHARACTER DIES. EVER.
Did anyone really care for him? And (SPOILER ALERT) his death wasn’t very dramatic either.
Should never have returned after being in one episode, pointless unfunny character.
Nelson's life is honestly super tragic, he lives in an awful wooden house, he has this joke of a mother, and his father left him - 445956
She stretches the rating way too far!
Okay now your just putting everyone you think of on this list I've commented on about 10 characters on this list already because they shouldn't be on this list and moe is one of them
He stole Homers idea of the flaming Moe and almost made him in the bowling episode
The only good thing about this character is the suicide gag... and I hope he succeeds, soon. I've only watched one of his episodes, and it was the worst ever made. I was introducing my friend to the show, and now he thinks I'm retarded because I waste my time like that.
Wait... So what you are saying is that your friend has never heard of the simpsons. Wow, I feel sorry for your friend
He's just bad... You know
Willie is a funny character why is he on here?
He is creppy
What, he's a good character. He's provided some of the funniest moments in the series! - KalloFox34
He is literally a crook
Could you stop bullying millennials we are not clones. I am not a fan of Ralph Wiggum and I think he has became one of the stupidest characters in the show. He was dumbed down for people to laugh at.
After reading the top comment and the one at the bottom, now I see what I. M. Meen sees in smart children...
He's like he's autistic but I don't think he is he's just immature and undeveloped and stupid. I have autism and I was and am much, much, much, much, much cleverer than him.
The millennial's number one choice for best character ever. I don't know what's more irritating: The fact that we're supposed to find it funny that an imbecile's non-sequiturs display a stupidity bordering on developmental disability, or the fact that every fan and their friends have turned him into a folk hereo for the sake of hipster irony.
What a terrible character. He's a fake friend for Homer, costantly betrays him and makes fun of him whenever he can or exploits him. He deserves an actual Treehouse Of Horror death that sticks in the real plot. Plus, The Phantom Menace is good!
He is so fat
What the hell is Abe doing here? He's hilarious!
He's hilarious! "Which one of you is the mailman? " - 445956
Why is he on this list he is so funny!
I find him funny
Edna is actually a pretty good character. Shame Marcia Wallace is no longer alive :(
She is the most stupitist simpson character EVER!
He stole the winning lotto and kept the money for himself
He's greedy and rude.
But he did it rto sve some one like robin hood
HE IS SO BORING.
My top 10 least favorite characters:
9. Kearney Zzyzwicz
8. Kirk van Houten
7. Jimbo Jones
6. Poonam Nahasapeemapetilon
5. Dolph Starbeam
4. Anoop Nahasapeemapetilon
3. Krusty's friend (from Kamp Krusty)
THE WORST CHARACTER EVER: DEWEY LARGO!
Apu is a great Simpson character, expect that he cheats on his wife, puts his work as his number one priority before his own wife and could've nearly killed Homer with food poisoning.
Apu is really funny I don't know why he's on this list
Apu is a supporting character and he's very complex which makes him liable by my standards.
Worst villain! She caused Bart for stealing church money! Abosolute worst lying backstabber of the show, PERIOD!
Even she's bad, she's a perfect match for Bart Simpson.
She's troublesome and deceptive. To think she's the daughter of a reverend.
She's like brat syndrome all the way.
At least he was defeated in one episode
Itchy should die to be honest. - DumbFriesNub
There was the one episode where Scratchy gets his revenge, but sadly we never see it. - KalloFox34
He kills Scratchy for no reason all the time yet some how Lisa is the worst character.
I despise his show in general
Never said one funny thing, they made him make a cameo in every episode since like season 6, I wish they hadn't he's not funny his voice is annoying, he's my number 1 least favourite, they should kill him off.
Sideshow Mel is one of the best characters on the show by my opinion. He is adorable, and his voice is the best. He may not have any quotes but he is still the best in my heart. - frozenwing
This guy has never had a funny line and is annoying and grating when he speaks
He is only there to make token remarks which are always irritating. Nothing more than a space filler.
Probably even worse than Helen Lovejoy.
I think she's a serial killer,i mean, she clearly despises Ned
She is just so annoying and never says anything truly funny
She is straight up boring. When she died, the priest talked about how she wasn't special in the show.
