Top 10 Worst Stereotypes in Cartoons


The Top Ten

1 The bratty little sister

Worst stereotype ever! - Peppapigsucks

Sarah of Ed, Edd n Eddy demonstrates this trope best to an insufferable degree. Practically anyone who is a fan of Ed, Edd n Eddy, including me, universally hates her. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

In every cartoon we have these - adventurer

Angelica Pickles in a nutshell. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

2 The bitchy mom The bitchy mom

Rita Loud. - AinezoChan

Rita Loud is bitchy? Great, now Seth Macfarlane has these in his shows. Cliché. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

3 The hero with no personality

Ash Ketchum, however, is energetic and enthusiastic. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

Bloom from Winx Club. - AinezoChan

Naht really, Ash is still lame and boring whenever he’s not a obnoxious weirdo. Though to be fair, he was sorta good/okay in the first 3 generations (and maybe some of the 4th) so yeah. - PageEmperor

He uesed to be until xy

4 The love interest with no personality

Trent from Total drama island I used to really like him but looking back he was a bland character who they used so that Gwen could have a love interest.

I hate crushes - adventurer

Ronnie Anne Santiago. - AinezoChan

I believe she does have one. A love interest with no personality is Paige. - TheReviewer20

5 A teenage genius

Hiro Hamada (I still like him). - AinezoChan

6 The dumb best friend

Lindsay from TDI... but in a funny way.

Patrick Star, Beast Boy, Sheen Estevez, Cosmo, etc. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

Pinkie Pie, Dez from Austin & Ally. - AinezoChan

7 The selfish main character

Timmy Turner, TTG! Robin, and 2016! Blossom thrown into the mix. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

Lincoln Loud. - AinezoChan

8 The rich kid with a British accent

These are the worst things ever made. - Qadzooks

I don't know anyone. - AinezoChan

9 A talking dog

Zoe Trent, Scooby-Doo. - AinezoChan

WAIT WHAT?! - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

10 The dumb dad

It's almost like a rule that every cartoon show has to have an idiot father in it. - egnomac

Richard Watterson, Homer, Peter Griffin etc. - AinezoChan

The Contenders

11 Bratty teenage daughter

Take Chimera from Winx Club for example.

Candace Flynn. - AinezoChan

12 The smart little sister

Lisa Loud is not a bad character - PeeledBanana

Lisa Loud and Anaus Watterson. - AinezoChan

13 The character who gets tortured

Squidward Tentacles torture porn anyone? - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

14 The stupid villains The stupid villains

The Rocket Team though. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

15 Dark is evil

Deserves to be number one to be honest

Disney in a nutshell

Raven. - AinezoChan

16 Ice villain

Take Icy from the Winx Club franchise for example. She's a really good villain when you watch the show in the RAI English dub.

17 The tiny, annoying comic relief sidekick to the hero

Spike - AinezoChan

18 The token friend with no personality

As in token, I mean minority. - Swellow

To be honest, putting in a minority character doesn't make you look any more "accepting". Take note, Hanna-Barbera. - Swellow

19 The dumb chubby kid
20 Whole animal species as evil

Oh God, I think the The Lion King hater added this - PeeledBanana

21 The villain who is evil because the plot says so

23 The evil teacher

24 Two main characters who start out as friends, but become more than just friends
25 Evil hyenas

TLK hater... - PeeledBanana

26 Heroic mice and evil rats
27 The evil comic relief trio that are also the main villain's henchmen
28 The noble, but bratty, main hero
29 Main hero always has a love interest
30 Androgynous evil villain
31 Only animals with a good reputation can be good guys
32 Light is good
33 The popular girl who bullies the main character
34 The girl who doesn't listen to her friends, falls in love with a guy who hurts her, and ends up getting her heart broken
35 Girl who thinks she's ugly but she's actually beautiful
36 A love triangle between the girl's male childhood best friend and the hot mysterious new guy

Every YA novel ever. Kinda off topic, but I think you get the point. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Take many characters from Total Drama.
