Worst Sword Art Online Characters

The Top Ten

1 Sugou Nobuyuki Sugou Nobuyuki is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara. He is the main antagonist of the Fairy Dance arc.

Phew. I'm glad Sugou is in first place. I would have died if Kirito was first place instead. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Hands down. Just kill him off already! Such a pervert, and I can't forget what he did to Asuna! - Goku02

This guy was a jerk. I would get deeper but I can't without raging.

This is the best list ever. I am glad Sugou is at number 1. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

2 Rosalia

People think she's hot?! Am I one of the only people who think she's ugly as hell?! She's more of a witch than Caster from Fate/Stay Night was (although I kind of like Caster and feel sorry for her due to her backstory)! Plus, she's a pathetic excuse for a villain, unlike Heathcliff, who was a total badass who never showed any fear and was a glorious control freak. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

3 Kuradeel

This guy just randomly out of nowhere revealed himself to be part of the laughing coffin and for no reason. He didn't have any purpose. What even was the point of him? Although I will admit he was quite creepy and scary - darthvadern

4 Kibaou
5 Yuuki Shouzou

Episode 15 and he let Sugo try and Mary Asuna

6 Johnny Black

I can't believe he poisoned Kirito!

7 Shinkawa Shouichi
8 Silica Keiko Ayano is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara.

That worthless pet of her's deserves its own section. Hell, just from the fact that it exists: we were originally told that SAO stood out compared to the standard RPG and MMO since there was no magic, classes, or ranged weapons; just pure Melee.

Yet SHE, without any foreshadowing that its even possible, suddenly shows up with a Familiar from a standard Fantasy game that can HEAL HER and has RANGED ATTACKS(poorly at that, but it's the principle of the thing)! Oh, and she was THE ONLY ONE we saw in all of Aincrad with pets! Its literally just there to make the useless brat look 'special' which makes her FAR more deserving to be called a mary sue than any other female character in the series.

Oh, and its some rare one. How did she get it; a really difficult quest? Raising it from an egg? Beating it in battle? No, she just FED IT PEANUTS! what?! There are hundred who are risking their lives on the frontlines and putting themselves in danger while SHE got that from dumb ...more

Retarded loli was too busy flailing around like an idiot over people seeing up her skirt instead of, oh you know, FIGHTING BACK! Kirito outright SAID that the damn things were pushovers and she still kept getting caught. Hell, why the Eff was she wearing a tiny skirt when her useless excuse of a fighting style consists of jumps and flips?! And she STILL wears one in ALO where SHE CAN FLY! If anyone DOES end up seeing up that skirt, its her own damn fault for clearly not knowing how to use her brain.

Its her fault so many people died! Go back to the first episode; she was the first to start crying that made everyone else start to panic. Ergo, anyone who died after that is because she couldn't keep her mouth shut.

She gets to be a practical celebrity just because she has a vagina and that stupid pet of hers while Kirito's a pariah just for being a beta-tester(LONG after whatever advantages he had from the beta became irrelevant) despite being one of, if not THE Best player in the game?! That's just not right!

9 Endou

Such a jerk. She SHOULD marry Sugou. They’re both disgusting anyways... since they live in in dump.

Hey wait isn't this bitch planning to do a school shooting - Hoxton

If I recall, Endou was the girl who was bullying Shino Asada (Sinon). Not only is she an ugly b**** and a jerk, she also brought a REAL gun to school just so she could get Sinon to do whatever she wants! I swear I wanted Sinon to shoot her, or at least report her to the school! Showing the jerk she can handle a gun is not enough punishment for her. Endou should have either gotten shot or suspended by her school. - ModernSpongeBobSucks


10 Shinkawa Kyouji

The Contenders

11 Yui (AI)

What? I personally think she's one of the best characters. Such a well developed and cute character. The aincrad arc really became the legend it is when Yui came - darthvadern

Cute but annoying to the extreme with that Mommy & Daddy bit. I was happy she died / deleted but she returned again. Also, an AI has no future in calling herself a daughter of humans. Really stupid concept. She ruins Asuna's character.

I think after she and into this show it was obvious nothing mattered. What I mean by that is that when she was diapering Kirito managed to hack into a complex AI in a matter of seconds. That's impossible. I mean I get he was over powered but it's clear he's just a Mary Sue (yes males can be Mary Sues too). I didn't mind the show up until this point. Characters complexity changed (Asuna) and all stakes were lost knowing that they would never let a main chatter die. It was actually quite sad and it all happened with this character.

Whenever she talks, I want to cut off my ears. The "mommy" and "daddy" lines she says every time she talks is so creepy. I honestly hope the anime kills her off as she doesn't serve any purpose.

12 Asuna

She's supposed to be this awesome character and Kirito's equal: Vice captain of the Knights of Blood, Asuna the Flash, etc. Nobody in the Order of the Knights respects Asuna in the least. She has Kuradeel forced on her as a bodyguard. Then she leaves Kirito to fight against Kuradeel instead of pulling authority or showing that she is an awesome fighter by fighting him herself. Same deal with Heathcliff. Kirito and Heathcliff fought over Asuna like a prize to be won. Heathcliff didn't even ask her about her opinion! Heathcliff had no respect whatsoever for her despite making her the vice captain. Asuna being vice captain is an empty title. She had no authority or respect from her own faction. And it matters little that she is "the Flash" because she barely gets to fight. She doesn't have even ONE important fight where she defeats the enemy on her own. Which is mostly the fault of the author. But times like when she lets Kirito fight for her against Kuradeel and Heathcliffe make her ...more

Asuna is awesome. People think that she's annoying in that Fairy Dance arc, but I don't hate her back then because she's not a total damsel in distress. Yes, she was captured and had to rely on Kirito to save her, but at least she tried her best to escape and helped a great deal in leaving something important for other people to know where she was. Damsels in distress don't even try to escape, they just sit there and wait for people to come save them, but Asuna wasn't like that. - Goku02

I know, right? I completely agree with everything you said. I don't know why everyone forgets this. Those bunch of salty elitist hater jackasses. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Um, how is Asuna even "good"? She stole Kirito and she was rescued by him EVERY time, legit. Thanks to her, Kirito only cared about her and rejected and hurt everyone else's feelings (who liked him). Asuna is crappy and annoying... in my opinion, of course. Asuna is too perfect -.- While everyone is a bit imperfect there.

I liked Asuna back then, before fairy arc but later she became so annoying, whenever she sees kirito there must be love she becomes so weak around him. She can't hold still being around him. I don't like her

13 Yuuki Kyouko

One thing I have to say is that Asuna Yuuki has really bad parents! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Well, she has changed... - Goku02

Lol I thought this said Yuuki Konno but it was just Asuna's terrible parents.

14 Sinon Shino Asada is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara.

Kirito had to protect her the entire final match. He was never in danger himself, and would have died to save her for no reason if he did not have plot armor and that last sensor pad. Literally, if she did not participate in the gungale tournament, she never would have been at risk of someone sneaking into her room and stabbing her, whereas Kirito was in a safe, monitored location where his life was never at risk, and he could have stopped death gun easily by himself

Because no boobs!


I hate her

15 Alicia Rue

Pointless ecchi character for guys. - Dollmaker

16 Lisbeth Rika Shinozaki is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara.

Reminds me so much of Serena from Pokemon.
The whiny faces she makes and the stupid stuff she does. She looks so much like Serena when she goes to the snow mountain and her hair color appears blondish. Also her hair movements and round face. So much like Serena!

She's annoying at times, but she's still a good friend. Doesn't deserve all the hate. - Goku02

She is the most uninspired characters from Sword Art Online I've ever seen her avatar or ingame character is a disgrace to a character that I liked if you want to know who is it, It's Nonon Jakuzare yes he is disgracing her from that pink hair and eyes to that damn voice and also coincidentally most of my reasons that say Winry from FMA is a piece of **** somehow applies to her - Hoxton

Why does she even exist?
no joke genuinely why?
like why exactly did she exist I mean bro, she does not even have a personality

17 Pina


Not bad. Just not interesting - darthvadern

18 Kirito Kazuto Kirigaya is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara.

Not bad at all. Even though I wish he was a bit more reallistic and less OP, he still has depth and character. He's not completely 2D and actually does develop a bit so I think he's still good - darthvadern

He's the best character on this show in my opinion. - Goku02

What's so good about him? He's overrated and overpowered... - EpicJake

But he's my favorite anime character. And he's number 1 on Best Sword Art Online Characters. Put him below Kibaou. Seriously, how is Kirito above that jerk? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

19 Quinella

I really hate her

20 Moonlit Black Cats
