Worst Video Game Cartoons


The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda

This show was so cheap! I mean come on! Link sounded horrible and didn’t treat Zelda with respect! What was Nintendo Thinking?!

Well, excuuuse me, Princess! - Garythesnail

2 Sonic Underground Sonic Underground

Blech, I can't believe my sister and me ever took interest in this cartoon when we were younger. Although I wished it had a more proper series finale, it was a pretty bad and overly cheesy Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Sonic X wasn't too bad. This show on the other hand. Urgh... -_-

Animation is awful
Songs are pointless

3 Darkstalkers
4 Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm

Me being a mortal kombat fan I find this atrocious, it has a confusing plot that has nothing to do with the movie and the games, also, why is there a mortal kombat cartoon for CHILDREN! Srlsly, mortal kombat is too violent to have this kind of stuff

5 Double Dragon
6 Wing Commander Academy
7 Bubsy
8 The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! is an American television series, conceived by Andy Heyward, produced by DIC Animation City, and distributed by Viacom Enterprises in association with Nintendo, airing during 1989 from 4 September to 1 December.

I loved to watch this show when I was a kid. I found the live action part to be weird though. At least it's better than the 1993 movie.

Because it sucks! it does not resemble the game.

Why does everyone hat this show? I liked it even better than adventure of sonic

9 Street Fighter
10 Frogger

Why the hell did they make Frogger a reporter. - egnomac

The Newcomers

? Mega Man: Fully Charged

How is this cartoon a cartoon?! It’s a complete mess and isn’t even true to Mega Man’s character or anything! There are so many things wrong with this show like...
1. The Writing stinks!
2. The Animation looks like some cheap show of Nick Jr.
3. The show randomly jumps into pixel art for no reason.
4. The villains are so boring
5. The action is too slow
7. Mega Man is now a middle school boy which makes no sense!
8. Every character and plot is so 2 Dimensional like there’s no creative thought put into anything.
9. Everyone who made this show doesn’t care about the Mega Man series.

The Contenders

11 Pac-Man and The Ghostly Adventures Pac-Man and The Ghostly Adventures Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, also known as Pac-World, is an American/Japanese/Canadian computer-animated comedy-adventure television series featuring Namco's classic video game character Pac-Man.

I can't believe that this has a fanbase! It has to be like the Pac-Man World trilogy, but instead, we get run-of-the-mill CGI, anti-feminist teen stereotypes, Nickelodeon's positive acceptance towards this crap, butt-ugly character design, uncatchy theme songs and a very childish demographic. ScrewAttack deserves to replace Saturday Supercade with Pac-Man & the Ghostly Adventures on their list of "TOP 10 WORST CARTOONS BASED ON VIDEO GAMES".

Well, excuuuse me, Princess! - Garythesnail

12 Tak and the Power of Juju Tak and the Power of Juju
13 Sonic X Sonic X Sonic X is a Japanese anime television series created by TMS Entertainment and based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series published by Sega.
14 The Adventure of Super Mario Bros. 3
15 Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom is a computer-animated television series, produced by Sega of America, Inc. and Technicolor Animation Productions in collaboration with Lagardère Thématiques and Jeunesse TV, respectively for Cartoon Network, Canal J, and Gulli.
16 Pole Position
17 The Adventures Of Sonic The Hedgehog The Adventures Of Sonic The Hedgehog

I actually used to like watching episodes of it on YouTube with my sister back then, though I realized that it really wasn't that great and I could understand why people hate it now. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This is so lazy, I can't describe it justice, just watch the nostalgia critic's video

I like it but the only part I hate is a Sonic Says.How crappy it is.

18 Battletoads
19 Captain N: The Game Master

It's Bad...Just Bad

20 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.
21 Skylanders Academy
22 Saturday Supercade
23 Super Mario World Super Mario World Super Mario World is an American animated musical comedy television series loosely based on the Super NES video game of the same name.
24 Donkey Kong Country Donkey Kong Country Donkey Kong Country is a Canadian/French computer-animated television series. It is based on the Nintendo franchise Donkey Kong as portrayed in the Donkey Kong Country video game series by Nintendo and Rare.

This show is so wrong on so many levels! The animation is horrible and hard to look at and doesn’t resemble it’s game counterparts. I understand that this was made in the 90’s but, Nintendo could have gone a better way into making this cartoon.
