Top 10 Worst Thomas and Friends Characters

The Top Ten

1 Bertram

This is a few reasons why Season 5 was the start of the downhill, not 8 or 9. I prefer the first four seasons.

Could have been better if they gave him another episode to show his true persona.

He is creepy no wonder he only had 1 appearance

Hey, Bertram isn't that bad. Fred and Thumper are way worse.

2 The Horrid Lorries

Horrible characters only in 1 episode

These guys suck. Really suck.

They're not that bad - myusernameisthis

Lorry 2 is the best.

3 Old Stuck Up

The definition of unoriginal.

I guess he lives up to his name.

I like D199 and Old Stuck-Up.

Worst Diesel Ever. Worse than D199.

4 Thumper

His design is ugly and that ugly idiot needs to get out of the quarry right now. - FinnsWorld

Only created for merchandise. What a bad character.

Nobody Likes Thumper, I Hate him too.

Only there to sell toys - myusernameisthis

5 98462

Who the hell are these asses

He is called Alfred in the fanfiction and is a serial killer.


But one user on the TTTE Wikia calls him "Edgar" - FinnsWorld

6 Sir Robert Norramby
7 Sir Topham Hatt

He really gets on my nerves the way he is and what he does like scolds those poor trains and always blames them first for anything like the troublesome trucks when they're always being unruly, mischievous, troublesome, naughty, or uncontrollable like in Thomas and the Trucks, Percy Takes the Plunge, Percy's Predicament, Emily's New Route, No More Mr. Nice Engine, The Adventure Begins, and/or Bradford the Brake Van.
Another thing he does that really bothers and annoys me is he always blames the engines first even before the drivers. The drivers are whom drive the drive. They always escape blame. The drivers work the controls to work and control the trains. They're in control. The trains really are not in control of they're own self. They're trains, not chipmunks (or animals). In the movie, Unstoppable, Dewey says, "It just got away from me! " Connie Hooper then says and tells him "It got away from you?! It's a train, Dewey, not a chipmunk! " He thinks it got away from him like a ...more

He's a stereotypical brute and pain in himself. Who does he think he is anyway scolding those poor trains a lot and berating them for situations beyond their control and acting and treating them like they're chipmunks or animals like in control of their own selves like in the movie, Unstoppable, where Connie Hooper tells Dewey that it's a train and not a chipmunk when he said to and told her that it got away from him and when the drivers are in control and work the controls and let them escape blame like in Thomas Comes to Breakfast when Thomas crashed into the stationmaster's house even when a careless cleaner had meddled with his controls and in Wayward Winston where and when he blamed him for going off without he himself even if he forgot to set and put on the brake? He said to Percy, James, and the Fruitful Day that his railway does not run like a jam factory. He didn't let Gordon's driver escape blame in Thomas and the Rumors by speaking severely to him and not Gordon for going ...more

I surely indeed do hate, loathe, despise, renounce, and contempt him very much so with all my heart for what he's done, especially, to Thomas in Thomas Comes to Breakfast most of all for how he scolded and berated Thomas beyond his control for crashing and running into the stationmaster's house even when a careless cleaner has meddled and tampered with his controls and left him on and started him up and he's not even in control of his own self to start up and go on like he's a train, not a chipmunk, they mention and say in the movie, Unstoppable, said by Connie Hooper to Dewey "It got away from you? It's a train, Dewey, not a chipmunk! " and also just like in the SpongeBob SquarePants episode, Nautical Novice, where SpongeBob wasn't at all ever driving the museum or in control of it as it was being and getting tugged into port by another guy and it was like a false bravery and he was trying to get his boating license from his boasting teacher/instructor, Mrs. Puff.

He's degrading a whole lot, ton, and bunch in life.
He degraded Duncan for trying to rock n roll in the tunnel in Home At Last and threatened to murder and fire him if it happens again.
He has such a mean, hateful, and atrocious tone.
His tone is extremely ugly and hideous.
He's such a pain in himself and a jerk about things a very lot in all of life.
He is just the worst meanie and brute I've ever seen in my life.
He has no kindness in his heart.
I'd say like to me that him acting the way he is like a hideous despot makes Thomas and Friends make for another version of Beauty and the Beast, where he takes the place and role as the prince turned into a hideous beast as punishment for his spoiled, selfish, and unkind attitude and behavior and had everything his heart desired compared to him acting all mean a whole lot in life with degrading, scolding, and berating others a lot and also the prince turned into the beast was the master of the castle compared to how he ...more

8 The Halloween Engine

What an awful character! - FinnsWorld

Even his name is stupid.

I don't think he couts because he is just a scrapped peice of gorden

Just get the city of truro, remove it's tender, and cover it with baking soda.

That's what The Halloween Engine is in a nutshell.

9 Ivo Hugh

Ivo Hugh is better than Fred.

Ivo Hugh is better than Fred.

10 Gordon

He just plays tricks on Edward by trying to get stuck on his hill, he can be banned from this railway

Oh, the indignity!
He's such a crybaby.
Cranky Bugs: Cranes are airy fairy things! They need a lot of attention like me in fact!
I'd like to see the look on his face and how he thinks of that babies need a lot of attention and how he acts like one for groaning "Oh, the indignity! " and wanting a lot and all the attention he wants and can get.
He also said that he complains all the time whenever he wants for how he's a big blue engine and he knows everything (which he never at all a bit doesn't) in A Better View for Gordon compared to babies cry and whine to get attention and tell their families what and how they need things! Nobody knows everything.

Gordon and the Gremlin: Early one morning, Gordon's fire would not light!
Respect for Gordon: His firebox rattled as it cooled down at night!
Respect for Gordon: Percy: Rattler Gordon's keeping us all awake! Rattlebox is awake at last!
Henry Gets the Express: Gordon: My firebox needs cleaning! Henry: Your firebox? Why didn't you have it cleaned out last night? Gordon: Oh, I was too tired!
You're Gremlin Gordon!
It's Gremlin Gordon!
Gremlin Gordon.
Gremlin box.

Thomas' Christmas Party: he was wearing a Santa Claus Christmas hat on his funnel and smoke box.
Thomas Meets the Queen: he wore shields on the sides of his smoke box with bringing and taking the queen with pulling the royal train.
Best Dressed Engine: he said that decorations are undignified for an important engine like him.
King of the Railway: he wore banners and decorations at Ulfstead Castle for its grand opening along with racing against Spencer, Caitlin, and Connor.
The Missing Christmas Decorations: he said it was outrageous that someone was taking all of his and the others' decorations on Christmas.

The Contenders

11 Splatter

I decided to also have some other places for them on the list. splatter at 40 and dodge 41. this is also the very first comment on the list. - FinnsWorld

12 Burnett Stone

Anything from Thomas and the Magic Railroad sucks.

Interesting character but not for a thomas movie!

He is too out of character for Thomas

Too Depressing & Boring.

13 Tiger Moth

Why would they add this poop

14 Colin

Does anyone remember him? Nope.

15 James

He's such a bratty snob. He's so very vain and a twerp. He should be scrapped. If I were Sir Topham Hatt, I would scrap him and/or put him on display somewhere on something and also paint him a different color and make him dirty and give him dirty work and take away and compensate his passenger duties and coaches. Also, I think might be responsible for and making him act the way he does with his attitude and behavior is he having his dome gold and a steam locomotive's dome is like their heart so it's like a heart of gold. Also, Gordon said in Gordon and the Famous Visitor "Never trust domeless engines, they're not respectable! " like they're heartless and have no heart. Also, in Thomas, Percy, and the Dragon, Gordon said to Percy, "Your dome has cracked! " just like his heart has broken and/or sank, so it's like him having a heart of gold and being spoiled for it and just spat on it. He needs to have it cracked and smashed and painted and colored and polished a different color for how ...more

James is not at all a bit my favorite character or engine. He's so very vain, selfish, stubborn, conceited, arrogant, naughty, know it all, pompous, pouty, and egotistical. He claims and considers himself to be the best like the smartest, brightest, shiniest, and fastest red engine on Sodor and above everyone else and superior to the other engines and is shallow and emotional about it. He even tried to think and make himself be the favorite like of either Sir Topham Hatt or anyone or everyone else in Journey Beyond Sodor. I'd like to see the look on his face and swallow and eat those words and thoughts when he sees the show to and that shows Thomas to be everyone's favorite engine. He's also hypocritical. He said and called Philip a show off in Philip to the Rescue even though he was the one doing that. He also criticizes Gordon for complaining all the time and being grumpy in A Better View for Gordon even though he's also guilty of this like in Pouty James. He also criticized Gordon ...more

"Is vain but lots of fun." Read that again and tell me that it makes sense. "Oh, James? He's remarkably self-absorbed and catty. BUT SO MUCH FUN." I bet. Anyway, when I read Thomas books to my son, I do James in a comically fey voice. I have him lisp and everything. It's terrible.

James is just such a bratty snob. He's such a jealous jerk.

16 Sixteen

Heh, it would be funny if Sixteen was at 16! Hah!

Well, now he is at 16. Ya happy?

The 3rd Worst Character in My Opinion.

17 Rosie

Ummm excuse me? Rosie at 16? What the actual...
Rosie is very boring. All she does is annoy Thomas. There was literally no reason for her to be painted red. How Henry willingly moved out to sleep with her is still beyond me. I'm on Gordon's side- let's keep Henry! No one cares about Becky!

To me, Rosie is the number 1 worst Thomas character. First of all, she has a bland character, second, In The Fastest Red Engine On Sodor (In my opinion one of the worst Thomas episodes) she adds nothing to the story, and third, she's annoying, even more annoying than Coconut Fred or Annoying Orange.

Give her her old paint job back!

I think she has no point in the T.V. show and is annoying!

18 Max

Max is on the right,

19 Donald

And before you call me a hypocrite, I wasn't saying Neville and Molly were bad because I didn't like their names. I was just saying that I don't like the name Neville or Molly.

Okay, so before we start a silly argument, we should stop commenting. NOW.

But other people have commented on other characters saying their names are bad.

Donald not needed? Screw you, you moron.

20 Diesel 10

He used to be a good until they give him that german accent, which is undoubtedly racist as if the creators still think germans are evil

Diesel Ten always made me mad as a kid! - Dawscr

I hate Diesel 10 because of his claw and design! He is Diesel 0! - williamou417

He’s pretty scary and vicious with that claw

21 Thomas

I like thomas he's fun

"He's the cheeky one."

Ay get him off this list, how would Thomas be bad?

He's such a selfless hero and ultimate sacrifice.

22 Lady

She is so very beautiful. Her name means female lord. She is female lord for how she kept Sodor alive and the steam engines and as long as she exists, so do the others.

Ok, um hi, everybody. You probably know me from the super long coment I made about Duck in the best lists. But know lets talk about the worst of the worst in the thomas and friends franchise. I know all of you are going to be like,"Are you serious, Lady isn't that bad! ", but mark my word, I am going to make another super long coment to about, in my opinion, the worst thomas and friends character ever. Now let's talk about Thomas and the Magic Railroad, in my opinion it wasn't that bad, it just seemed a little quirky, but it wasn't all that bad. Except for Lady. Yes, I can see Burnett Stone at number ten, NUMBER TEN, are you friggan kidding me! Lady is way, WAY worse than Burnett will ever be. And please someone ask me how much screen time did Lady get in the whole friggan movie, almost none except for the super dumb end that everyone hated. And don't get me wrong I loved Lady when I was little, but know I just want to see her burnin the flaming pits of the scrapyards, ok that's a ...more

She's a beautiful engine

Not needed. Just a plot device. Nothing else. - SamKoffsky

23 Charlie

He is very annoying and in one episode, negatively says that Thomas isn't fun

What a timewaster, just spends most of the time telling jokes to engines and getting them delayed!

My least favorite character in the entire series. Simply irritating and annoying.

They wanted to make a new toy, so they just painted Billy purple and renamed him.

24 Ferdinand

That's WRONG!

He's the best! - williamou417

Just Painful. - FinnsWorld

ThAt'S rIgHt!
-Ferdinand, every.000000000000007 seconds

25 Flynn

Disgrace to firefighters everywhere.

"His firebox was on fire."

Worst truck on Sodor ever.

What a timewaster, he’s just very lazy to help.

26 Luke

I'm not surprised if he's in the top 60, He presents himself destroying another engine, he made Diesel want to take him away.

Said a bunch of rude words to thomas


Hey, FinnsWorld.
Deliberate belittlement of Blue Mountain Mystery, no sympathy whatsoever for an engine who SEEMINGLY killed another engine, eeexxxccceeesssiiivvveee uuussseee ooofff zzzeeerrroooeeesss, and just flat-out being mean. How is Luke not your least favorite character? Maybe if you knew who the yellow engine was and how he survived, you’d change your mind!

27 Fred

I don't see the point of him and he's probably just a narrow gauge version of Diesel. - FinnsWorld

Has anyone ever heard of him? Nope.

Fred wasn't even a plot device. Get him to #2, but not to 1 because Lady should be #1.

He's just a lazy boring stupid diesel who was never even seen.

28 Bash

Could have been better with severely better writing, dialogue, and roles in the series.

I hate anything related to Misty Island.

Plot debice. Same with Dash and Ferdinand.

Just Painful. - FinnsWorld

29 Philip

He is just a new annoying showoff who tried to befriend Edward.

His high-pitched voice + show-off attitude + meaningful contributions to the series = not a very likeable character so far.

That picture is in terrible quality because it was taken from a book or something.

Philips just a new character

30 Salty


The Ugly Red One

His voice is just so ugly. his teeth...

31 Bertie

How did Bertie wind up at 33 but Bulgy went up to 55? Is it because the more words you type, the farther down your character goes?

Getting sick of this stupid list, Thomas-fans? Well, you’re in luck, because finally, here we are, the very last vehicle on the list, Bertie. Congrats, Bertie! You’re the least-hated Thomas and Friends character! Actually, I’m not sure, because Douglas didn’t show up on the list and that must mean he’s pretty likeable.

32 Belle

I believe she is a MURDERER!

If you look closely in the episode Ol’ Wheezy Whobbles, she slightly biffed Toby’s flatbeds.

Poor Toby :(

33 Billy

Shut up billy and stop saying stop telling me what to do thomas your a very bossy engine you plot device. - FinnsWorld

He's annoying, bossy and I feel like he wasn't introduced properly, Samson is him but done right.

But Billy appeared before Charlie, so wouldn't that make Charlie Billy with a different color?

Worst character ever introduced.

34 Rocky

Here to sell toys

Ripoff of Judy and Jerome

35 Emily

"Really knows her stuff." The show does not present evidence of this.

Her theme song is just incredibly obnoxious.

Her singing voice in Part 1 of "Diesel's Ghostly Christmas is just completely intolerable.

This low even though everyone hates her

36 The Diesel

Fuss pot

37 Edward's Ghost Engine

Why's everyone hating on him? he doesn't even exist and neither does the Easter bunny.

All they did to create him was take off Donald or Douglas's nameplates and uncoupled his tender. - FinnsWorld

Rusty's ghost engine is better.

Yeah lazy right like dennis

38 Trevor

Trevor is awesome! Him liking children doesn't make him creepy!

I agree he's not Crepy

"I like children." Creepisest character ever.

39 Den
40 Norman

Norman is a plot device and is even worse then sidney and paxton combined. - FinnsWorld

How dare you disrespect my opinion - FinnsWorld

His face, design and color are ugly. I hate this ugly diesel.

Norman is better than Paxton or Sidney.

41 Winston

Ripoff of Sir Topham Hatt's old car.

42 Sam

Sam is better than Logan and Dustin.

Not needed, Murdoch would better suit this role.

Redundant; far too large for British rails.

Pointless merchandise only character. - FinnsWorld

43 Mighty Mac

This double sided engine thing is not new. The culled fell engines had faces on the back of their cabs. Also, boo had two faces in the railway series, one on each side. Also, mighty mac does not look natural. At all. And plus, what kind of name is mighty?! At least macs name is real!

Another plot device. - FinnsWorld

Seriously, all they do is argue.

Don't you mean "I hate them"?

44 Neville

Why can't his number be on his tender.

UGLY, reminds me of the enderman from Minecraft.

His design is just so ugly.

He deserved to fall off the broken bridge! hahaahahaahahaahahaahahaahahaahahaahahaahahaahahaahaha! take that you stupid train! - FinnsWorld

45 Molly

She is very pretty and beautiful. She is so very sweet and cute looking. She's special. She is one of my favorite characters.

Beautiful engine, but not enough development to become likeable, in my opinion.

Boy, molly is such a big crybaby! - FinnsWorld

Molly the chronically depressed yellow engine.

46 Whiff

I hate his name.

That's my custom engine agian

47 Madge

The little creepy lorry

I don't like her name.

48 Connor

I like Connor

Pip and Emma could of easily took their jobs. - FinnsWorld

49 Gator

(Used too much in a short period of time.

50 Logan
