Thomas the Tank Engine? entitled jerk. Tigger?... destructive meanie. Here we peer behind the curtain and shine some light on some of the most 'loved' characters.
She is selfish, spoiled treats people poorly and thinks of herself as above her job in a coffee house despite her lack of qualifications or other options for employment.
Never realized as a kid, but now I'm a dad and I've had to sit through all the episodes, just about every episode is about a situation arising from Thomas being an entitled a**hole.
The fact that he loved Lilly and that he worked in secret for Dumbledore doesn't cover up the fact that he was a prick to Harry all through the series, and that he was incredibly selfish. He even turns to Dumbledore's side out of selfishness, because he still had his creepy crush on Lilly.
This guy just sits around, letting Charlie's mom slave away day in and day out to put cabbage water on the table, he hides money from her so he can buy a candy bar, and then as soon as he sees the prospect of free stuff it turns out he was able-bodied the whole time. Then he encourages Charlie to break his contract with Wonka by stealing the fizzy lifting drink, and when Wonka has the nerve to enforce the contract, Joe wants Charlie to screw him over by selling trade secrets to Slugworth.
Honestly f** Grandpa Joe.
I love his character obviously, but holy crap, if that was my boss.
She's pretty and she pretends to be Dorothy's friend, but she makes Dorothy the target of a vendetta by magically putting shoes on Dorothy's feet that rightfully belong to someone else. Then she disappears through all the trouble, showing up at the end to say 'Yeah you had the power to get home all the while. Why didn't I tell you? You wouldn't have believed me..."
Real troublemaker, there.
Complete and total jerk.
Eeyore spends his whole morning careful building his modest home, built entirely from twigs, all by himself. He doesn't bother anyone and really just needs a good friend to put his arm around him.
Then along comes Tigger! He comes bouncing along with no regard for anybody else. Completely ruins Eeyore's house by barrelling into it at full speed. He never apologises, never offers to help Eeyore rebuild it. And then to make it worse he begins bouncing around again and what does he hit this time? Eeyore himself! He knocks Eeyore straight over... Does his stupid laugh and then bounces off again!
Then he encounters Rabbit. A rabbit who although grumpy provides a valuable service for Hundred Acre Wood by growing fruit and vegetables presumably for the other residents of said wood and for a Pooh bear who's diet it seems consists entirely of honey. Anyway...Rabbit is tending to his garden, minding his own business and then along bounces Tigger. Flys into Rabbit, sending him and his rake flying! Disrupts the production of crops for the entire community then again laughs and bounces away.
If someone came to where you lived, pushed you over, knocked over your house and then destroyed your crops and food supply you'd be furious! Tigger also has the audacity to sing a song about how wonderful he is and yet the only reason he can come up with is because he's the only one! I for one am glad he is the only one and i'll never understand why he's so beloved...complete and utter dick!
Which sucks because when you first start watching How I Met Your Mother she seems really cool while also being really hot.
Hidden behind her faux-hippie, easygoing, cute-as-a-button appearance, she is actually super manipulative, selfish, stubborn, and downright mean. And to crown it all is her mountain of credit card debt which she hid from Marshall only until she was forced to.
Cuts off the hand of a man and fed it to a crocodile as a joke.
Kidnaps children by luring them with "adventure" and keeps them against their better judgement.
Peter Pan is colder than any Samuel Jackson character combined and he's barely past 11.
Despite his great humour, is a complete psychopath. He hurts everyone under the thinly veiled excuse of "stupidity', despite at times showing more intelligence than he lets on.
"Spongebob, you cannot expect my USUAL brand of stupidity. I like to mix it up, keep you on your toes".
Although he is fun to laugh at, Rick Sanchez is utter slime. I'm tired of seeing people defend his deplorable actions just because he has charm and is a great comedic foil.
Ferris doesn't seem to care too much about potential consequences for his friends, especially Cameron.
Kirk is constantly violating the prime directive to get into fistfights, bang green broads, and do other crap. He gets his crew killed all the time. Blows up tons of the Federation's flagships. He's a liability to the Federation for 95% of his career and yet somehow "Their Greatest Hero." Imagine if there was a US Admiral that killed 20% of his crew on every major mission and sank the national asset (cost-wise) USS Ronald Reagan every two years.
He killed a kid's parents and fed them to him....
Rorschach was very deliberately created to be a deconstruction of Black and White Morality and the "Dark Avenger" archetype. Alan Moore, the writer, wanted to create a horrifying monster to try and impress upon the readers the dangers of uncompromising creeds. He's a psychopathic narcissist with no understanding of the complexity of the world.
Dates Flash Thompson, the most popular dude in school. Immediately dumps Flash at their graduation when his popularity is no longer useful and starts dating Harry, someone she ignored all the way through school and is now suddenly interested when she remembers he's rich af... but is totally about banging Spider-Man behind his back.
Then, after breaking up with Harry, she decides to tell Peter she loves him at Harry's dad's funeral.
Then she gets engaged to Jameson's son, a rich powerful astronaut. Despite knowing that Peter is poor and is struggling to eat, she treats him like crap because he misses seeing her in a play.
She then discovers that Peter is Spider-Man and even though he tells her straight that, no, they can't be together because it's too dangerous for her and it would be a massive liability for him... she runs out on her own wedding, because screw her fiance and what Peter said, she wants her own way.
Then, when her acting career starts to go a bit downhill, she gets totally jealous of Spider-Man's popularity, and gets even more pissed off when Peter has to interrupt her rant to go save some people: You know, the thing he told her he'd have to do when he told her they couldn't be together...and screw Peter for going to prevent murders when she needs someone to whine about a bad review to...
Oh, and Peter, knowing that Harry is the Hobgoblin, tells MJ to stay away from him, tells her he's bad news and she's in danger if she goes anywhere near him...so she immediately goes to see Harry and makes out with him...getting herself kidnapped and almost killed.
Literally faked his death so he can open a casino in Tajikistan with the insurance money.
He watched over Harry for 16 years, always treating him like his own child, knowing damn well what he was going to do to him. Knowing that he was going to force him to fight in a war, that he'd watch his friends die, and eventually have to give his own life.
I understand the whole,"for the greater good" thing, but the fact that he acted as a father figure to Harry to get him to do what he wanted while having these nefarious intentions is completely twisted.
When I was a teenager, I thought it was such a romantic story. As an adult, you realize it's basically Twilight: The Musical.
A dark tortured soul who is so misunderstood becomes obsessed with a young, ingénue woman, terrorizing her and ultimately seducing her through manipulation and coercion. Even though she loves someone else, he feels entitled to her love and her hand in marriage. This guy sucks. The audience is supposed to feel bad for the Phantom because he's so very tortured, but that's no reason to be a dick to everybody.
I kind of liked the book. (I read it a few years ago back when I was in high school and going through a hard time.) The series, on the other hand, not so much.
As someone who has struggled (and still am) with depression and active suicidal ideations, I really wanted to relate to Hannah and be on her side, but damn, I just couldn't. Her character was extremely unlikeable, demanding, entitled, and selfish.
I do appreciate the effort made to make this show though and the attempt to initiate a conversation about an important, serious topic. I mean, the production, music, and acting was very well done. I just--the character Hannah--nope. sighs into the abyss
Piccolo raised Gohan, and Goten pretty much didn't have a father except when he came back for the tournament for 1 day and was pretty much like oh hey you're my kid.
I am a Stannis Baratheon fan, but Stannis has done a lot of fucked up things.
A lot of people love him for being the neighbourhood rapist and his "giggity giggity" but deep down he is a piece of crap. He is a massive hypocrite.
He attacked Brian for wanting to have sex with Lois, but he does wayyy worse. Quagmire choked himself with Lois' paper towels and makeup sponges, spied on Lois in the bathroom, and went after Meg as soon as she turned 18. Quagmire literally banged his neighbour's wife - Cleveland's wife, Loretta.
Quagmire attacked Brian for being a terrible father to the son he never sees. But in Brian's defense, he had no clue about his son until Tracey told him. Once Brian found out, he tried to become the best father he could and was overprotective. Quagmire has countless kids that look so like him that even he could tell that they are his kids, yet he actively avoids them. In one episode where Quagmire went to Peter's elementary school to pick him up, Quagmire requested for his son Peter, to which the teacher said that the kid who looked like him was more of his son. When he saw the kid, Quagmire ran away until he saw more of his children in different classrooms, which he also ran away from. Quagmire then stumbled upon the teacher's lounge, where he had sex with a teacher (and probably contributed to another life).
Quagmire knew about his kids but avoided them like plagues. Brian knew about his son but did his best to raise him. The son broke things off with Brian so he could fix his mother up, which Brian found to be admirable.
Quagmire then beat the crap out of Brian for having sex with Quagmire's father. In Brian's defence, he had no clue that Quagmire's father even had a sex change until Stewie told him, and once he found out he was repulsed by the idea too. Still he got beat up by Quagmire, despite the intercourse being consensual and Brian having no clue about it.
There's a longer ending where the bears go to kill her and end up killing the wrong family because she was still going into people's houses.
His actions start being completely morally bankrupt as early as the end of series 2 with the Jane incident. There's so many people who keep defending him all the way through the show though (including my Dad!).
Like, I get that he is absolutely magnetic and fascinating to watch, but that doesn't stop him being a real bastard who was responsible for a great many people's deaths. He's not a one-dimensional, moustache twirling villain but he fast became a villain all the same.
We're going old school here, but Lancelot of the Lake, King Arthur's most famous knight. - THIS GUY IS THE WORST.
Let me break it down for all of you who aren't familiar with this guy. Everyone always sees Lancelot as the perfect knight, right? He's the shining beacon of what a knight should be, perfect in every way. Good looking, great at fighting, cordial with everyone, loyal to a fault, all the stuff that makes a great knight great.
First, the first time we ever see him is in Chrétien de Troyes's writings. The name of the tale is called "Lancelot, Knight of the Cart." We first see him in a cart. That's where it starts. Not on a horse, or even walking, in a cart, which was reserved for the infirm, sick, or condemned in those days. He has thrown away his pride in order to save Queen Guinevere, to which I hear you say, "But isn't that what a knight should be doing, serving his Queen and Country" to which I say: The reason he went is because he lusts after the Queen. He hasn't acted on it yet, but his "love for the Queen" is what drives him. The rest of the story is him "proving his love for the Queen" by losing a battle when she tells him to lose, and then winning it when she changes her mind (as a side note, Guinevere is a huge bitch in this as well). Oh yes, and he seduces the enemy's sister in order to get out of prison while professing his undying love for the Queen. And it bears repeating, this is the FIRST time we see him.
But we don't end there, do we? Anyone who knows the Arthurian Cantos knows the reasons for Lancelot's unworthiness as the "greatest knight."
Galahad is Lancelot's son. He's born when Lancelot sleeps with the daughter of the Fish King, but here's the kicker: SHE DISGUISES HERSELF AS THE QUEEN IN ORDER TO SEDUCE HIM. SCREW OFF WITH YOUR LOYALTY PLEDGES LANCELOT.
Not to mention that during the Quest for the Holy Grail Lancelot is REJECTED BY GOD as being unworthy to even approach it.
And of course, lastly, Lancelot is the reason Arthur dies. He's the one who finally gets caught with Guinevere (though they share the blame on getting caught, both of them are idiots). He runs away, the King is forced to punish Guinevere, which Lancelot runs into town, grabs her, and runs away again to hide in castle (so if you're keeping count, that's twice in the same tale that Lancelot is a coward and runs away). In his rescue attempt, he kills the knight Gawain's sons. So not only is he a coward, he's now killing his friend's children.
Arthur is then forced to go to war, because hey, his own trusted knight betrayed him, and if he doesn't go after him he'll lose his status as the Unifier of the Realm. So after years of siege (all the meanwhile Lancelot and Guinevere are holed up in the castle Helena and Paris style), Lancelot finally compromises and lets the Queen go. Arthur sends her home, but because Lancelot is too prideful, he refuses to surrender on his own (WHERE WAS THAT PRIDE FOR, I DON'T KNOW, THE ENTIRE REST OF YOUR MISERABLE LIFE?!). Arthur is forced to continue, which allows Morgana and Mordeth to take over, ultimately leading up to the death of King Arthur.
I'm not saying Arthur was perfect, far from it. In fact, most of the stories in the Cantos are about the tempting and mistakes of various knights and kings. But Lancelot is presented as the best knight of all, repeatedly referred to as "the most trusted," "the most loyal," and "the world's greatest knight." When really he's someone who will throw away everything at the drop of a hat in order to steal another dude's wife out from under him.
Sheldon is really the worst.
The show parades itself as a show for nerds, but comes off as a show written by people who are not nerds but went to comic con once. All the characters are lazy stereotypes. The dumb blonde, the Indian one, the moms basement creep, the 'everyman' (who often comes off a bit rapey I might add) and finally, Sheldon. The show designer has said that Sheldon was not written with regard to any specific syndrome, but Sheldon's whole character is just a stereotype of a guy with Aspergers. And not in a subtle, inclusive way. Sheldon is just a joke. Not that he's funny, or that he gets into funny situations, just that he is there to be laughed at because he is weird. All the characters are like that to an extent, but Sheldon has literally nothing else to offer from what i've seen. High intelligence and no social skills does not make a character. He's a card board cut out nothing, who for some reason is universally loved. I don't understand it.
Yes, Sarah Chalke is beautiful and the character does have redeeming moments, but she does so many terrible completely self-serving things, especially in her relationships.
Smug little bird. Always despised him and felt bad for Sylvester.
Seriously... she knowingly slept with a married man. After you know, dumping him for a dude that treated her and everyone else like crap at the time. (Article Source)
