Top 10 Worst Stereotypes in Cartoons

The Top Ten Worst Stereotypes in Cartoons

The bratty little sister

Worst stereotype ever!

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

The bitchy mom

Rita Loud. - AinezoChan

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

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

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

A teenage genius

Hiro Hamada (I still like him). - AinezoChan

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

The selfish main character

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

Lincoln Loud. - AinezoChan

The rich kid with a British accent

These are the worst things ever made. - Qadzooks

I don't know anyone. - AinezoChan

A talking dog

Zoe Trent, Scooby-Doo. - AinezoChan

WAIT WHAT?! - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

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

Bratty teenage daughter

Take Chimera from Winx Club for example.

Candace Flynn. - AinezoChan

The smart little sister

Lisa Loud is not a bad character - PeeledBanana

Lisa Loud and Anaus Watterson. - AinezoChan

The character who gets tortured

Squidward Tentacles torture porn anyone? - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

Lincoln, I hate him. - AinezoChan

The stupid villains

GRIM GLOOM! (I love him with a flaming passion) - AinezoChan

The Rocket Team though. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

Dark is evil

Deserves to be number one to be honest

Disney in a nutshell

Raven. - AinezoChan

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.

The tiny, annoying comic relief sidekick to the hero

Spike - AinezoChan

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

The dumb chubby kid
Whole animal species as evil

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

The villain who is evil because the plot says so
People with autism are comical reliefs
The evil teacher

-cough cough- Crocker from Fairy Oddparents even though I like him. -cough cough-

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

TLK hater... - PeeledBanana

Heroic mice and evil rats
The evil comic relief trio that are also the main villain's henchmen
The noble, but bratty, main hero
Main hero always has a love interest
Androgynous evil villain
Only animals with a good reputation can be good guys
Light is good
The popular girl who bullies the main character
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
Girl who thinks she's ugly but she's actually beautiful
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

Nerds who get bullied
Hyperactive characters
Rich bully/villain
Spoiled Teenager

Take many characters from Total Drama.

Any animal is ridden like a horse

Cartoons features characters riding animals that are obviously not capable of supporting the weight of a human.

-dog riding in Krypto the Superdog, Rugrats, Clifford, and the Simpsons
-goat riding in Ed Edd n Eddy

The dumb jock
The black people who speak in "gangster" slang
Fat Friend of The Main Character
Overly Sweet Characters
