Top 10 Worst Thomas and Friends Characters


The Top Ten

1 Bertram 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

Just about every character except Douglas is here. Now, as you may remember by my entries on the Top 10 Peanuts Characters List, I protest against hate for characters by adding EVERY character to the list. So, that said, I want to add Douglas, but there’s no more room on this list! Whaaa?

Plot device.

Too many Gronks.

13 Donald 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.

At least dugglis saved oliver and toad from scrap

14 Sixteen Sixteen

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

The 3rd Worst Character in My Opinion.

Not needed.

15 Max Max

Max is on the right,

One of my favorites...

Not needed.

Take him off!

16 Rosie Rosie

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!

She was terrible in Seasons 10-16, she's much better in Seasons 21-22.

17 Lady Lady

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

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

She's a beautiful engine

Plot device.

18 Thomas Thomas

"He's the cheeky one."

I like thomas he's fun

Hey, he's not that bad.

Here’s a Score Update on how far the Steamies are on the list.
Toby and Percy maintain their spots in 8th and 7th.
Gordon and Edward have dropped down to 6th and 5th.
James is in 4th place but is overtaken by Henry in third place.
Emily is still in second and keeping his lead in first place, it’s Thomas!

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

I hate his design.

Not needed.

Plot device,

20 Sir Topham Hatt Sir Topham Hatt

Oversized rail baron despot who always blames his trains first when they go too fast and pop all the champagne bottles they were carrying in their hoppers. He's just like Tom Coughlin. What about the drivers? Why do they escape blame when Thomas rocks and rolls over the big big bridge? Who's REALLY in charge here? Thomas & Friends just reinforces the notion that heartless corporate bigwigs like Hatt are job creators whose moral authority must never be questioned. I bet Rand Paul watches this show pantsless.

He's been a big fat jerk in the past, like in Thomas Comes to Breakfast, Middle Engine, even in Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure, but he has been a funny character from Seasons 19-21, so he's not really that bad.

I hate him because he scolds those poor trains! Mr. Percival is a better controller

A Jerk. someone who causes confusion and delay but complains about others causing confusion and delay.

21 Fred 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.

I hate his design.

22 Charlie Charlie

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.

Hey, he's not that bad.

I hate his design.

23 Flynn Flynn

Disgrace to firefighters everywhere.

"His firebox was on fire."

Not needed.

I hate him.

24 Bash Bash

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

Plot debice. Same with Dash and Ferdinand.

Not needed.

Just Painful. - FinnsWorld

25 Ferdinand Ferdinand

That's WRONG!

Just Painful. - FinnsWorld

I hate him.

€�He is JUST THE WORST HE KEEPS SAYING that's RIGHT EVERY TIME HE APPERS LIKE I HATE IT GLAD HE WAS NEVER IN SEASON 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 Probblay since Mattel is ruing the show Bash dash and Ferdinand will might be back

26 Philip Philip

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

Plot device.

27 Emily 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.

I hate her design.

28 The Diesel The Diesel

Fuss pot

Plot device.

29 Trevor Trevor

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

I agree he's not Crepy

"I like children." Creepisest character ever.

30 Salty Salty

Hey, he's not that bad.


The Ugly Red One

31 Den Den

He's useless!

32 Norman 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.

33 Luke 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.

His face is too ugly.

I don't like his name.

I hate him.

34 Winston Winston

I hate him.

Not needed.

Ripoff of Sir Topham Hatt's old car.

35 Sam Sam

Not needed, Murdoch would better suit this role.

Sam is better than Logan and Dustin.

Redundant; far too large for British rails.

Sam is better than Hank.

36 Mighty Mac 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.

Who is Boo?

39 Gator Gator

(Used too much in a short period of time.

I hate his design.

I hate him.

40 Logan Logan

His face is too ugly.

I hate him.

41 Spencer Spencer

All they did was make Gordon more annoying and obnoxious. Say no to Spencer, worst character ever.

They are Hit Entertainment, the people who created Spencer to be a ripoff of Gordon, only more annoying.

Plot device and ripoff of Gordon. Not needed at all.

I flippin' love Spencer. But why isn't he in the "Five New Engines in the Shed" song?

42 Henry Henry

There's one guy who comments on all the Steam Team members using their verses from "Engine Roll Call." Search up Thomas, Edward, Gordon, James, Percy, Toby, or Emily, or just stay here. He or she says that the show no longer presents evidence of Emily or Edward's roles, makes fun of Toby, ridicules Henry and Percy, and even calls Gordon a total c__k! He or she doesn't make fun of Thomas, though. Another thing I know is that this commenter is a mother or father, because when he/she reads Thomas books to his/her son, he/she uses a lispy voice, thus making fun of James. Oh, that's a great idea- expose your son to hatred of the series' most beloved characters! Honestly, if you hate all the main characters, there's really nothing you can do...

"Toots and huffs and puffs." Oh, you mean like every train ever? Find a new gimmick, Henry.

HIT ruined him, just like they ruined every character.

His worrywart character trait has become... cringeworthy.

43 James James

"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.

Seasons 9-16 only. - FinnsWorld

44 Rheneas Rheneas

The same parent who commented on all the Steam Team members struck again on Rheneas! Honestly, is there one Thomas character you do like?

Seasons 9-12 only. - FinnsWorld

Seems like a Utah baby name, but there you go. There are a LOT of engines on Sodor, far more than I can cover in this post. Suffice it to say, if there's a baby name, there is probably a corresponding Thomas train to go with it. And that will be true as long as parents like me are suckers enough to buy Thomas train toys. Mark my words, you WILL see a BAYLEN steamie in toy stores at some point within the next five years. It's just a logical market extension.

Take him off!

45 Oliver (The Pack) Oliver (The Pack)

Sorry, spelling mistake.

If you didn't mean oil do, what did you mean to type?

I can't remember sorry.

What kind of name is oil do?

Old Slow Coach is such a crybaby.

She was just for money. - FinnsWorld

Plot device.

47 Edward's Ghost Engine Edward's Ghost Engine

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

I hate him.

Take him off!

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.
