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.
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
If you've ever watched the Simpsons shorts from 1989 you'd probably call Lisa's character great, she's perfectly believable, not quite as foolish as Bart and loves to tease him, and for the first Season and maybe the second, she was still much like this, slowly though, over 10 years or so, her character was shilled out and she became a petty unloveable voice for the writers liberal opinions, I watch the Simpsons for comedy, for a touching story, yet now Lisa is here to present us with why we are ALL wrong, how we should ALL be like her.
I don't hate Lisa, I love Lisa, she's great, she was great, but the Lisa on the show isn't Lisa anymore, Bart might be Bart, Homer is just stupid now, Marge is well, characterless, but Lisa was picked up and removed, and replaced with the writers backward unwanted opinions instead, Lisa has no character anymore outside of being, supposedly "smart" and subsequently always "right"

Evil little brat just as bad as Marge Simpson, ruins the Simpsons' lives constantly with lots of nagging, complaining, spilling the 'beans', & ruining their lives on a daily basis.V 172 Comments
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
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's a downer and a killjoyV 99 Comments
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!
Selma > PattyV 22 Comments
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
I hope a car runs her over.
She is actually really annoying and disruptive
I can't stand helen, I'm felling bad by jessica she deserved a better mother. - NelMemazoV 25 Comments
not a very cute baby with that unibrow and so rude to maggie simpson!
The baby is so creepy and stupid. Why did they create such a pointless character?
Because he's totally in all the episodes and constantly antagonizing everyone. In case you can't tell I was being sarcastic - ralphie
Oh yeah that baby who is never in the show, EVER, Anyway why is Ned, Marge and Lisa on this list? They are all awesome.
Gerald Samson?V 16 Comments
Martin Is a Little Stuck-Up Snob, He Only Cares About Himself and His Grades
He is just so lame boring and annoying
Lisa should not be first. She's a bit boring, but is good when she's around Bart and Sideshow Bob.
Goody goody, I hope bart pranks himV 20 Comments
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.
Why are the Flanders on this list? - attarj
She's funny. she is also kind of rude to homer but patty is worseV 5 Comments
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
The reason I stopped watching after season 8, not so coincidentally when she got divorced and became downright insufferable. Why couldn't Milhouse divorce her, too?
Poor Kirk. Kirk deserves better. And Luann deserves worse!V 8 Comments
He has an annoying voice and he ruins everything. They need to kill him off!
The worst stereotype of a lawyer I have ever seen. Hopefully a real lawyer will sue him out of the show. Oh and if you want to hear someone who is a sue happy, I recommend weird Al's I'll sue ya
He is so rude to everyone and his voice is so annoying they he needs to be killed off.
Too astute and professional. One dimensional character.V 12 Comments
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 sureV 2 Comments
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.
Don't tell about my "busy fingers"
Once a narcissistic rat, always a narcissistic rat.V 18 Comments
She actually resided in a case that she was the plaintiff. That's illegal because it violates the constitutional right to a fair trial.
Even Patty and Selma are exquisite compared to this hag and that's saying a lot! Also, that voice of hers is more annoying than hell. Whenever I see her onscreen, I just want to punch that hideous face of hers.
She's a b...ig meanie!
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.V 1 Comment
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".
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
Mr. Burns is evil, like his character was written to be! WAAAHH!
Is my least favourite character ever on the Simpsons.
Bart's right! Skinner is a wiener! - Goatworlds
Sometimes I want to punch him he is so annoying!
Steamed Hams? - AdamDestructorJr.V 2 Comments
Brats. Brats to the core. They only liked Lisa cause she had a pool in one episode. Typical spoilt brat cliche!
So mean I want to punch them
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.
Lisa has a big butt, Lisa has a big butt...
"Sleeping with the Enemy" (Season 15)
He is not seen verey much so you can't really say but by the way maggie is not the worst character
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.
He has one of the most annoying voices in the world. I think that Bart should be friends with someone else.
I can't stand Millhouse, his voice is so irritating and annoying, it drives me crazy. He's definitely in my opinion the worst character. The other character I hate who should be on the top 10 is the Bumblebee man! He's not shown on all that much. But he's just such a stupid and pointless character he gets on my nerves!
I hate that little annoying ****. Lisa deserves someone betterV 27 Comments
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
Naive and wimpy.V 6 Comments
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
Awww! I ship him with Mr Burns.V 6 Comments
What's wrong with hans moleman all his purpose is is getting tortured, or is that literally the reason you hate him
Poor fella, he's the guy you ought to feel sorry for.
Strange guyV 1 Comment
Ned was funny, but now he is so Christian-extremist that I feel sorry for his kids (as stupid and annoying as they may be) and he is homophobic.
He was funny in the first 12 seasons, but he's been unnecessary to the show lately.
I'm okay with him being Christian I'm a Christian myself but Ned Flanders acts like everything else is evil. If an Atheist were to move into the neighborhood Ned Flanders would hat him/her. God wouldn't want that. - HeavyDonkeyKong
If nothing else, shortly before Maude died he started being overused/seen too much, and after she died it only got worse.V 24 Comments
He doesn't really do anything.
A uselesss unfunny unfunctional joke machine isn't funny and unwanted
She's a person who thinks that's she's tougher than anyone. It's annoying.
She is such a jerk to her own son. She will never admit that she is old
She's a jerk to EVERYONE not just Skinner
Agnes Skinner is just cruel to Seymour for no reason. Not funny and very unlikable.V 3 Comments
Kang is boring and he is irritating
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
What the hell man? Sideshow Bob is awesome!
Overrated as f... Whenever we see this guy in an episode, it means always the same sh... He comes up with an evil plan (try to kill Bart 90% of the times), fails and returns to prison. It gets old too soonV 6 Comments
I used to not like him in old Simpsons, but then newer Simpsons came along and I started liking him.
I like his laugh
Nelson fills that place of the well-developed bully in the Simpsons. He is in no way one of the worst. - AdamDestructorJr.
Nelson is a huge jerk, he is my worst Simpsons character ever made! He was like Angelica Pickles and D.W. Combined! Thank god he got learned a lesson! - ShaunFan04V 3 Comments
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.
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.
He's very unnecessary.
He's Matt Groening's least favorite character so...
I hate him
He is not really that funny, but his voice is incredibly irritating, plus his character has always been dull and uninteresting.
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.
Any episode that's focused on Krusty is just repeatable and are all the same just slightly different with the writing.
Sad, Depressed, Addict, Stupid, Mean, AnnoyingV 5 Comments
She stretches the rating way too far!
She comes back to life and tries to kill lisa you r a meanie
What episode does she do that?
Snowball 1 only appeared in a few episodes, it don't think this should be on the list, but voting for it is the only way to comment... - Harri666
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 literally doesn’t care about anyone apart from Homer (occasionally), and even then he still tried to move in on Marge while Homer’s back was turned. He only cares about his love life which is just depressing. Seriously, if you’re sixty and don’t have a girlfriend/wife, just give up. He doesn’t deserve the five-second love the show gives him. I’m glad his relationships die.V 5 Comments
Willie is a funny character why is he on here?
He is creppy
What the hell is Abe doing here? He's hilarious!
Why is he on this list he is so funny!
I find him funny
I hate him a lot because is worst character should be in top 1V 4 Comments
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
I honestly don't know why he is on this list he's pretty funny
Worst Choice Ever (eh, get it, get it?!?!
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.
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.
He's so stupid! He is the most annoying thing ever. He is stupid, fat, and immature, and just a nuisance.
He's pretty funny in my opinion. - SomePersonYouHateV 6 Comments
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.
She was actually a good character and didn't deserve to die.
Probably even worse than Helen Lovejoy.V 6 Comments
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
