Worst Things About Elsa from Frozen

Ugh, Elsa is so overrated. Nobody really sees how terrible she really is. In what way is Elsa annoying?
The Top Ten
1 Abandoning her kingdom

Quit being mean to Elsa. Elsa is just scared, fearful and frightened of hurting other people. That's all. You don't have to be so mean to Elsa. You don't even have to bully Elsa like that. Don't you dare be mean to Elsa. Quit hating on Elsa. What are you hating on Elsa for? What did she ever do to deserved to be hated? Elsa is just sensitive towards other people.

The song is annoying, but that's not reason to hate the character. She's supposed to be the queen for everyone's sake and she runs away from it. In my honest opinion, after she ran away, the people should have attempted some sort of coup de'tat and replace the throne with some sort of republic.

Most people forgot that Elsa ran away without looking back at all at the chaos she left behind. And that even though Anna told her that the kingdom was freezing to death, she didn't care enough to go back to even check it out or try to stop it.

The fact that it is roughly four or five years since Frozen came out and it's still relevant to the hate dumb makes me honestly wish some people here would find an outlet for their hatred. Take a picture, it lasts longer.

2 Her powers are lame

She and her powers are lame. She wears makeup all 🤬ing time
Let me show you a list of my top 4 least favorite Frozen characters

1. Elsa
2. Kristoff
3. Olaf
4 Everyone else except Anna

And unoriginal. We've seen ice powers in The Incredibles (Frozone), and he was actually cool. How can you top a black superhero? Now, I have to leave. I need to ask my mom a question.


Her power isn't lame, she's lame.

Which is why I prefer Hans Christian Andersen's original, classical, titular Snow Queen as opposed to the likes of her (Elsa).

3 Her song "Let it Go"

Elsa:LET IT-



Me: Excuse me. But I thought it was Voldemort's job to destroy the world. Besides, Harry Potter was made before your movie was. So...Voldemort has tried to destroy the world and he couldn't. He was destroyed.



Elsa: Who is the boy who lived?

Me:not telling








Elsa: Who were the marauders?

Me:Remus Lupin, Sirius Black, James Potter and Peter Pettigrew.

Elsa:OH...I have heard of someone who escaped from Azkaban a long time ago.


Me:kills ...more

Yeah, I'm tired of people claiming her song is a "empowerment" sing when it is about her running away from her problems and not caring about if her people suffers from her actions. Tese Elsa fans who keep blindly defending her actions make me like Elsa less and less. They make me like Anna more and more since they don't pay attention to Anna's suffering and state that everything's her fault.

The stupid song didn't even fit into the story! I mean, if they were to make a song to tell about Elsa moving on- it came too early. And building an ice palace? Did there really have to be a song about that? I'm sorry but Let it Go is treated like something it's not.

If she feared hurting people, why didn't she just kill herself instead of running away? At least then she wouldn't have to sing her trashy song.

4 Runs/hides from problems

Although Elsa was just afraid and Had no clue what she could have done, this is by far her worst trait( when it comes to the bad traits). But, there are good reasons for the way she is.

1. Her parents did not bother helping her control her power, and she had no clue what to do
2. Elsa also did not have training to be a queen
3. And to add on to that, Elsa also was locked away so long, she did not have much contact

I'm not much of an Elsa fan myself, but I dislike it when people say she is a bad role model for kids. I feel like she is a good yet bad role model, but I won't go into that.

Yes, this is one of the problems I have with Elsa. A lot of people are calling her a role model. Role model for what? Be independent? If I had the power to make a house, not need to eat or drink, not feel cold, make my own clothes and furniture with the biggest OP power in Disney history, then anyone could be Elsa.
She ran away from her problems, always. She ran from her people and home without looking back at the disaster she left behind.

How is she supposed to be a role model for depressed/ fearful people? By teaching people to leave their old hometown in destruction to then dress in an off the shoulder dress? We have kids and depressed people looking up to this uncaring, selfish, whiny scumbag! They should look up to optimist Anna!

I don't get it why people blindly defend her when she wasn't even one of the heroes of Frozen, she opposed the heroes for the most and part and didn't even attempt to fix her problems. People say she had character development? I beg to differ. She still is that scared girl from her childhood, even after Let It Go.

5 Elsa is such a brat

No wonder one sole sister-less only child fits her (Elsa) better than a forced canon elder sister.

Which is why a sister-less only child fits her (Elsa) better than a forced canon elder sister.

That jerk, Disney should've kept her as a canon sister-less only child.

Which makes her (Elsa) nothing but some major insult to to Kai and Hans Christian Andersen's original, classical, titular Snow Queen

6 She wouldn't let Hans marry Anna

Ok, first of all what did you expect from Anna? Her parents died and her sister is a sociopath, she never had anyone in her life to giver her comfort after her parents died or even feel secured. So her falling for Hans, I see as a given, but yes he was also very manipulative. But let's say that Anna was betrothed by her parents. Elsa would feel the same? Maybe not because she loved her parents.
Also, even though Anna marrying Hans would have been the quickest way for her to get Anna away from her and her crazy powers. Why did it matter to her if she was just going to ignore or push her sister away all her life?
Also, what if Anna had shared letters with Hans for months? What if they met only then for the first time, but knew each other by reputation?
The truth is that Elsa was a bit selfish, she didn't want to lose Anna, but didn't want her closer than a wall away, sort of like having a cat. You like to care for the cat but not let it sleep in your bed or eat at the table ...more

Hang on, hang on, hang on. Isn't that a good thing? This boy wanted to marry Anna, kill Elsa, and then take over the kingdom. He's like the Voldemort of this movie. I mean, not exactly the biggest fan of Elsa either, but if your sibling came up to you all like, "Hey, I met this guy two hours ago, now I'm gonna marry him. Can we live with you too? " Would YOU be all, "Yeah, sis, of course! " If my little sister did that, I'd find that boy and slap the sense out of him.

Back then all the princesses marry men they just met unfortunately except for Princess Anna who had to wait and get to know Prince Hans better first which is too bad for Princess Anna. Which is why Elsa came along and said "You can't marry a man U just met." I still like German fairytales. None of the German fairytales were never to be shut down.

Okay, I dislike Elsa, but that was the best decision she made in the entire movie. Why are you faulting her for that?

Hans was a sociopath at best who used Elsa and Anna both as pawns so he could seize power. A marriage to him would be miserable.

7 Sending a monster after her sister

Why is this 6? This should be 1! She almost KILLS her sister with this monster! And she says "I'm doing this to protect you" Yeah right. If Elsa really DID want to protect Anna, she would have shut herself away until Anna would have given up. She doesn#'t want to hurt her sister yet this is EXACTLY what she does. AND she doesn't care that she created a HUGE blizzard which could have easily killed Anna anyway. I can't stand Elsa. Why do people think she's a great role model? She does nothing but freak out, hide away from her problems and if she can't control her powers then she needs someone to help her. Shutting herself away is not going to solve anything. It makes her look really weak.

This should be higher. I can get why she ran away, because of the fear the trolls and her parents put in her most of her life and the fact she nearly killed Anna, but she created a monster that nearly killed Anna. She could have made a giant friendly Olaf to carry Anna and Kristoff away if she really wanted to be alone.

It only happen when Anna keep refusing to listen to her big sister Elsa when Elsa said Anna has to leave her ice palace without Elsa. Marshmallow deserves to be Elsa's protective bodyguard. Why are you Elsa haters always complaining? I like it when Marshmallow throws Anna out of Elsa's ice palace.

For any frozen fan wondering why we make these lists about frozen, we make them because we have the right to an opinion so we can hate frozen all we want, and also this is a free country we have the freedom of speech. So stop whining and disrespecting our opinions and get on with your everyday lives.

8 Blaming Anna for the Storm she could've prevented.

Yeah, and even when she learns form Anna that her kingdom is freezing because of her, she still prefers to sit in her castle and let her people freeze to death and leaving to try to solve the problem that she created. So, she lacks responsibility.

Yeah Elsa hating meanie heads. What gives you the right to make negative lists about Elsa? Elsa is always awesome! She's also a wonderful character. We want to know why do you Elsa haters make negative lists about her?

Elsa is awesome! Why did they make a negative list about this wonderful character?

I don't agree she blamed Anna. It was an accident. It's not Anna's fault,but neither is Elsa's

9 Terrible sister

Really, the way you Frozen fangirls act and comment, is one of the reasons why I dislike you. You worship Frozen like some holy god, and force people to like it. And if someone doesn't like it and insults it? You start spamming him in Caps that Frozen is awesome and everyone must like it.Not to mention you people call them big fat meanies just because they were expressing their opinions. You claim you are doing so, but you're just doing more unnecessary spamming than expressing opinions. Its OUR CHOICE to like frozen or not.Stop acting immature and grow up.And its coming from a person who is neutral with Frozen.

Anna is the worst retarded sister anyone could ever have.

Anna isn't any better of a sister. Anna is:

1. Annoying. I would freeze her and keep her as an ice sculpture myself if I had Ice Powers.

2. Childish/Immature. Grow up Anna. You are a 18 year old, not an 8 year old. I know you didn't have much attention from your sister, but that should not stop you from making new friends.

3. Disgusting. No wonder why Elsa ran away.

4. Rude.

5. Stupid.

It's Jennifer Lee's own fault for separating our all time favorite sisters Anna and Elsa From Frozen just because stupid accidents happen. I just wish Anna and Elsa never had to be separable. Jennifer Lee could've let Anna and Elsa stay separable but no instead she chose to make Little Anna jump too fast and end up having brain freeze from Little Elsa's ice powers.

Anna isn't any better of a sister. Anna is:

1. Annoying. I would freeze her and keep her as an ice sculpture myself if I had Ice Powers.

2. Childish/Immature. Grow up Anna. You are a 18 year old, not an 8 year old. I know you didn't have much attention from your sister, but that should not stop you from making new friends.

3. Disgusting. No wonder why Elsa ran away.

4. Rude.

5. Stupid.

10 Her fanbase

Oh yes, her fanbase. Her fans somehow completely miss the point of why they like Elsa: she has a flawed human character and incredible OP power. She is probably one of the most flawed princesses that Disney might have created. She does wrong to everyone she meets and somehow she is seen as caring. She ditches all her responsibilities exactly when her secret is out and you find out she has a thing for her sister... sorry, wrong movie. She has real life anxiety and how does she solve it? With her complete OP power of course, that she never trained or refined or anything. It just happened to be there. The fanbase will try to give Elsa most if not all of Anna's good points even. So, look fans of Elsa, we get it, you liked the best of Elsa, that doesn't mean that we have to either, we compare it to other things we like and make our own opinions.

Oh dear God, her fanbase. I don't care if you like Elsa, but I DO care if you shove it in my face that you think she's this flawless goddess (and for the record, THE ENTIRE POINT OF HER CHARACTER IS THAT SHE'S FLAWED). Look, I don't like Elsa at all, but I do see why people like her. She is relatable to a lot of people and I'm not going to take that away from you. Just because I dislike her doesn't mean you have to share that opinion. But that works both ways, so the fact that YOU like her shouldn't mean that I have to like her. And the more you try to prove to me that she's great and I should like her, the more I actually DISLIKE Elsa.

Recently I realized it wasn't so much her character that made me dislike Elsa. It was the fans. I don't care if you like Elsa but if she is being criticized and your defense is "she had flaws, like a real human being" I don't want to hear anything about Anna marrying a man she just met or Rapunzel not knowing her mother was abusing her or Merida disobeying her mother. Those are flaws like regular human beings and you can't hate these characters for having flaws and love Elsa because of them. Because you may relate to Elsa, but I relate to Anna and Rapunzel.


The Contenders
11 She's ugly

You can't fault a character for looks, though. That just makes you shallow. Besides, Elsa's overall design is actually quite nice.

It's the extensive focus on her looks- particularly when her features aren't any different from Anna's, save for the eyelashes- that bothers me. A portion of her fans seem to like Elsa because she has a pretty face and a gorgeous gown, but for no other reasons besides that. If you go to these fans and ask them to describe Elsa's character, the first word they'll use is 'gorgeous' or something to that effect. THAT is the problem, not her looks themselves.

Elsa is hot (the irony though..)
Listen ladies, it's not your fault that your face looks terrible or hideous, so don't be jealous k? (You could drop some weight however.) Even so, you won't ever look as flawless as this ice goddess, but don't worry! Let me give you some wisdom.

Elsa is like the most hidious Disney character, why do people keep saying she's beautiful?! And those jelsa shipers! Ugh I wanna puke hearing them! What is so special anout frozen anyway?!?! It just normal princess movie, full of mushy mushy stuff! It doesn't have action! And elsa is really ugly, why did people keep saying she's flawless?!?! I really really jelsa! I ship jackunzel and jarida 1000 times better! I HATE YOU ELSA your UGLY!

Probably the most simple reason: She beautiful and has some really cool magic powers. It would be shallow, IF her popularity would be all about that. But like I've made clear, that's only the frosting in the cake.

12 Lack of love

Haha, prettiest princesses? Are you kidding me? Their faces have the build of cats: giant, unreal eyes, tiny noses, and thin as paper lips. What is up with Disney animation these days?

She's kind and very selfless, but still has ability to hold her field, which makes her a great role model. Not just kids, but for pretty much anyone.

I ship her with jack frost but that guy is is way too good for her

She loves Anna and they are sweet

13 Being a Disney "Princess" when she's a queen

True, also being a queen means something more, it means responsibility. And for the most part, she never did show any of it. In fact, it's a miracle how the people of her kingdom didn't need her that much. Her parents must have been great rulers to make a system sustain itself that much in case of their demise.

Elsa would've been better being portrayed as a Disney ice princess anyway even though she's a female Kai who's also inspired by the original snow queen herself. Ingrid the other snow queen (Once Upon A Time Season Four) should've been included in them movie, Frozen back then before.

If frozen is still on the Disney Princess saga, Then, Frozen should've focus on Anna more. Just because their sisters doesn't mean anything. Elsa is a queen and Anna is a princess

This confuses me. Some people say "she's a princess! " and others say "no she's a queen, dummy! " I just need to know the right answer. I'm not hating, because I like Frozen, I'm just asking.

14 Elsa is annoying

She has NO character, not setting an example for Her kingdom, 100% flaw made, liar, run away, horrible singer and evil. Add on to this list!

Well, would you rather hear Elsa speaking in a real, British voice accent? Huh?

Let it Go is the best song ever. What's entirely annoying about her? Huh?

Which is why I prefer Kai and Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen as opposed to the likes of her (Elsa).

15 She's a Mary Sue

There is very little character development with Elsa. All the way through the movie she hides from her problems, doesn't care about the trouble she's made - even when her sister comes all the way out and tells her what's happened and how they need her before tossing her back into the cold with a monster she created after seeing she'd done something to her when she lost control. Then suddenly at the end : "Love! Yes, love! "...really? There's not a moment where she decides that there's something more important than being afraid. Like Mufasa and Dumbledore say : being brave doesn't mean you're not afraid anymore, it means you've found something more important. All I got from her in the movie was - I'm beautiful and strong I need no one and I'm so strong with my powers! As someone with social anxiety, I really rooted for Elsa and hoped it would be something to relate to - to see her push out that shell. Nope...

Absolutely true. She has this dramatic back story and tries to hard to make the audience feel bad for her. She also has ice magic. But this wouldn't be a problem if the plot pulled it off correctly. But the thing is, it didn't. All that Elsa did was mope, be dramatic, and be stupid with her choices. Like, running away from the kingdom and letting it freeze? How selfish. Also, the song Let it Go. When it was first sung, I was asking myself, "what message are you trying to say to the audience? " That Elsa has left her kingdom behind so that it could be buried under ice and snow, and that she's just "letting it go? " or that she is letting her powers unleash? That she is letting her past go, including her sister, who is a better developed character than her?
That is why I laugh whenever people say Elsa is "beautiful." She is actually ugly. Now, what I mean by this is that she is not ugly on the outside, she is ugly on the inside. She has the looks, but not the personality. Mostly ...more

People call her a badass for not needing a prince. But honestly does she have any friends to begin with? Or anyone interested in her? It seems like she carries her life on her dramatic life on her sleeve and we should all feel sorry for her even though she has a very flawed personality.

Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck should've included in a whole entire magical world for Elsa to live in back then before in the first place just to pull the plot off correctly but they didn't ever even bother to do it like they should've.

16 She only has fans because of her clothes and song

Yes agreed. Nowadays they are socks, mobiles with their stickers in them, and shoes. What even?

We have clothes too. And ice

Her powers too.


17 Not attempting to fix her mistake of freezing Arendelle

"She didn't know how! She said that during the movie. Did you even watch it? - Suzerain"
She knew how, she just ignored the advice from the trolls or going back to them. But even if she didn't know how to stop it, she could have gone back to try, just 15 minutes ago she was using them really well. Also even if she didn't know, she could have made shelters for all the people. Her ice power allowed her to dot hat at least, or help evacuate the people.

This is definitely one of the reasons of why Elsa is such a overrated, and possibly TERRIBLE character. She's so... Dull! She lacks personality! All of these things make her a rock. A simple rock. No personality, AT ALL. Elsa is a ROCK. She deserves to be thrown off a cliff for all I care!

She should of tried to save her own kingdom. After all that is where several innocent people including her girlfriend... I mean sister live.

Hello, Frozen haters. Did you ever watch at the end of Frozen? She finally unfroze Arendelle when a true love can thaw a frozen heart.

18 Frequently depends on her powers, despite fearing them

She completely ignored the advice from the trolls, she never even went back there when they were the only other magical creatures she knew.
Also, you can plainly see that she was using her powers even though she was afraid of them.

I think the instict was the one who made her to use her powers. In the scene when she froze Arendelle it's really shown how she wasn't prepared for this and how her emotions controlled her. And her powers do what they do because of her emotional state. When they tried to kill her in her palace,she wasn't trying to fight them at first. But,when someone tries to murder you,you'll stand up for yourself and fight them back,right? Everyone would fight to save their own life. She was just doing that. Maybe it's not a good idea,but we are humans and we'd do the same,I'm sure.

Elsa had to work on taming her own powers by controlling her own emotions. Her parents did whatever's best for her and Anna too.

I really don’t like how Elsa’s abilities are portrayed.

What I mean is, she starts out being able to make some snow and she can’t even control enough, hence her hurting Anna. Okay, that’s understandable, she was a child.

She grows up not getting any training on how to control it, she’s just instructed to not feel afraid and hide it with her gloves.

Then when Anna pulls her gloves off, she accidentally attacks the other characters with her powers THREE TIMES. She still clearly has no idea how to control it.

But then in the song she’s able to conjure up a snowman, a staircase, and an entire building, and a huge snowmonster without any issues at all. (she accidentally hits Anna after she manged to build a kingdom without the slightest issue like what)

You don’t just magically figure out how to use your powers in one song without even having training. If that were the case, Avatar: The Last Airbender would have only been like two episodes ...more

19 She's a stupid snow queen who gets all the attention because of her stupid powers

Poor Anna I love her, but she doesn't get as much attention as Elsa what can you do .

Anyway, I love them both, but I drew this for fun and as an apology for posting close to nothing for a week

reblog, don't repost

This brakes my heart! Elsa is so overrated that it makes me sick. She isn t even that great of a character. She gets all of this attention for singing a song, abandoning her responsibilities, being selfish, being a coward and teach little girls that they have to look sexy to be confident.. Anna is the admiral one. She is brave, loving, responsible, selfless and accepting of who she is. She had the real problems of the movies and still saved herself, kingdom and Elsa.

Some people call Anna naive ( Witch I personally don’t believe. ) for marring Hans after only spending a day with him. I thought about it for a while and I realized that no one talks about how naive Elsa is. She thought that lucking Anna in the castle, but shouting her out was love. That the gloves she choose to were would hind her powers. When she can freezes things though her shoes. That singing let it go would fix all her problems. That making a snow monster to chase Anna off of a cliff alone with a man that she did not know. Was the only way to protect her. That running away from the kingdom twice is the only way to save it. Even after being told twice that she is the only one who can remove the curse. Elsa is more naive then Anna if you analyze what they do and than compare. I honestly think that Elsa is the most ignorant character. (Not including Olaf because he is less than a day old when we meet him.) In Frozen.

Anna underrated.


I kind of feel that Anna is underrated
I mean she lost her parents, she kinda lost her sister, but still traveled a long way to find her, got hurt by her, got betrayed by they guy she thought was the love of her life, and almost lost her sister again oh and she froze!

I love Anna. I don’t care about all the crazy Elsa fans running around trying to rewrite the movie just to make a manic look like a hero. Elsa so overrated that it’s not funny any more! Anna is the only hero in Frozen. She had a lot of sidekicks and some love interests in the moves, but she is the only hero!

Thanks..!  Yeah Anna has a fun personality, but Elsa has the cool powers so naturally she gets all the attention..

Cute pinup of Anna! Rather nice to see her for a change lol
I'd definitely say that I liked Anna much more than Elsa. It's probably her outgoing personality and the fact that you get to know much more of her.

20 She created Olaf the snowman

To be honest, giving a character the ability to create sentient life (I.E. olaf) puts them on the same tier as a god. I can't think of a single character I like who has that ability and ISN'T outright stated to be a God. It just makes me very uncomfortable if mortals can do that, for some reason.

Yeah, she is basically a god and people are calling her weak and frail and scared like a child. They are even calling her independent but anyone who had her powers or magic, that she was born with, would become an independent ice god.

What's bad about Elsa creating Olaf the snowman? Could anybody tell me? I deserve answers.

Olaf is cute, but he's one of the dumbest sidekicks out there.

21 She almost kills Anna

If this wasn't a fairy tale, this would have been a story where a selfish sister kills her younger sister, because f her selfishness and stupidity; and she never "comes back to life", because that doesn't happen in real life. Anna would have died when the only thing she had done was to help her older sister. Elsa is horrible, a monster, she truly is the "frozen heart" they talk about in the movie, the worst Disney character ever...

She really was wanting to kill her sister because she send this ice monster to kill Anna and she didn't want any one with her so she almost killed her. She didn't only want to kill her sister with a monster she killed her sister because she freezes her heart so what do you think about Elsa

22 Elsa is a rip-off
23 Overshadows Anna

I honestly wish the next movie did something big and when I mean big I mean BIG! where instead of elsa not being Anna's sister it's Anna also I'd love to see where she's had her powers in hiding all this time where Elsa's parents made her mide them because they were two times dangerous then Elsa's.

Poor Anna. She is not hated but she is not very much noticed by fans unlike her elder sister, Elsa. She had her moments of being nice such as sacrificing her life to save Elsa from Hans and can sing well. Please people, give her some love.

Well, If only Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee give Anna the same, similar, different or opposite elemental powers the they gave Elsa ice powers, then Anna would deserve much more attention as much as Elsa gets. Am I right or what?

Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee could've let Princess Anna born with powers the way Elsa was but no Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee chose not to give Princess Anna powers instead they chose to make Anna nothing more than a muggle and muggle means non magic, normal and ordinary.

24 She always shuts Anna out

Which is why Disney should've kept them (Anna and Elsa) as unrelated, sister-less only children/strangers.

Laterally. This is what Elsa did for the entire movie!

It irritate me that people refuse to acknowledge and accept that Elsa as an abuser. Yeah she had it rough, but that was her fault and…

Well actually, that’s were your wrong, because Anna was not locked up by Elsa for three years. No were in the movie did it say she was.

Once the king and queen died, Elsa still was not of age to resume the throne, therefore, we can only conclude that the kingdom was being run by a counsel of nobles and advisers that continued the basic structure of ruling plan left by the king.

Which meant that, until further notice, the gates will be left closed as they did with the king, Elsa would be left alone as she did with the king. Anna, as Elsa stated, had no obligations to stay in the castle for as long as she did. She could have left at any time, cause I doubt that the large public gates were the only way in and out of the palace. Either way, the decision making at the ...more

25 She is such a baby

Well, tehnically that is her parents fault for not letting her grow up
I mean, how is locking your child up?

Elsa's such a crybaby like Bubbles and Olga Pataki.
