Worst Video Game Cartoons

The Top Ten
1 Darkstalkers
2 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

3 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.
4 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?!

5 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.

6 Double Dragon
7 Frogger

Why the hell did they make Frogger a reporter.

8 Wing Commander Academy
9 Street Fighter
10 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".

The Contenders
11 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.

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

Bad in an enjoyable way

All the characters suck

Every character is bad

14 Pole Position
15 Tak and the Power of Juju
16 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.
17 The Adventures Of Sonic The Hedgehog Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, usually abbreviated AoStH, is an animated series that was based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series.

I can recommend it for a "So bad it's good" show, maybe along with the Mario Super Show, The Legend Of Zelda, and Captain N. It could also be great for a few cheap laughs, even though I don't enjoy it as much as I used to (The enjoyment is reduced by how obnoxious the Title Character is), it occasionally cracks me up due to the weird animation, but I have to say, the highlight of the show was always the villains. I would mainly recommend this show for nostalgia value as it was a pretty big part of the 6-8 segment of my childhood, and I don't like to assume, but I am pretty sure that it was a part of some people's childhoods too.

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.

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

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

18 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.

I want a proper Mega Man cartoon on Cartoon Network. Not this crap that looks like a Russian Bootleg

This show looks like it came out of my happy meal, whoever made this should burn

21 Skylanders Academy

The animation isn't bad
Voice acting is okay
Mediocre is good or bad

22 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.

23 Kirby: Right Back at Ya! Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, known in Japan as Hoshi no Kirby, is a Japanese anime series created by Warpstar, Inc.
