Here are some of the Top 10 Most Overrated Fictional Characters of All Time
10. Lara Croft
Lara Croft is another famous arcade game fictional character. What makes Lara Croft so overrated is abundantly clear and that is because of her truly perfect feminine form. No game hologram can have what Lara has in abundance. She has the perfect breasts and sexy legs that do run a mile high. She also has a sexy feminine form that would put other female game characters to shame. Is this reality? No, it’s not, and that is why Lara Croft is overrated. She was made to look good and not just to be the character in Tomb Raider.
9. Carrie Bradshaw
The character from Sex In The City, called Carrie Bradshaw, is another character that is recognized and popular in a major way. She is every inch a typical New Yorker and she has a real addiction to buying shoes that does put her into a lot of debt personally. She is an earthy type of character that is a bit too earthy and modern at the very same time. She seems unreal and lacking substance.
8. Jane Eyre
Jane Eyre is truly an awesome heroine in the classic novel of the same name “Jane Eyre.” However, her character is indeed a bit overrated, despite the fact that she is plain and unattractive. The life she ends up having with Mr. Rochester is still one that is domestic in description. He ends up being blind and crippled too. He is no longer the man that he once was. She hasn’t changed all that much. She is a fictional character that is still black and white and the colors don’t change in her life and become brighter.
7. Rachel Green
The character of Rachel Green from the television sitcom called “Friends” is another fictional character that is indeed overrated. Why is that? The answer is clear. She is the least funny and interesting of all the characters on this popular sitcom. However, for some reason, people do seem to still like her a whole lot. Some say it is due to her very pretty hair which always does happen to look good on screen.
6. Reverend Lovejoy
Reverend Lovejoy is another character on The Simpsons that is sort of on the overrated side. He is everything that a pastor should be. However, one does tend to think if he is for real, because at times he just doesn’t seem to care and that is unlike a man of God to be. Reverend Lovejoy is always annoyed at Ned and tries to get away from him as much as possible.
5. Groundskeeper Willie
Groundskeeper Willie is another character from the popular animated television series called The Simpsons. He is also another fictional character that is a bit overrated, and at the same time, a character that has a stereotype just like Bumblebee Man. Groundskeeper Willie’s name is William “Willie” MacDougal and he is the groundskeeper for Springfield Elementary School. Willie can be described as sort of being feral in nature and he is totally proud of being from his native Scotland. Bart Simpson loves to play pranks on Willie because of his unstable temper and incompetent personality.
4. Bumblebee Man
Bumbleebee Man is a character on The Simpsons. He is fictional animated character that is also a stereotype. The character is overrated for a number of reasons. One thing about Bumbleebee Man is that he is unfairly stereotyped as a Mexican man and only speaks with certain words that are Mexican in dialect. Bumbleebee Man doesn’t remove his costume not once either.
3. Pac Man
Pac Man is another very famous arcade fictional game character. However, he too, is often overrated. Why is that? The answer is said to be this. Pac Man is supposed to a fictional game character that is a bit on the narcissistic side. His very eyes are said to be miniatures of himself. He also was a character that was said to have been conceived while the creator was eating pizza. Pac Man is also the only main character in the famous maze arcade game. The ghosts come in second to him. Simple as that.
2. Sonic The Hedgehog
Sonic The Hedgehog is definitely one of the best of all arcade game characters. However, some do think that Sonic is overrated as a fictional character, and why that is can be attributed to what Sonic does. He’s always on the speediest of all treks that leaves his best friend in the dust. His best friend is no other than Tails. Therefore, some do think Sonic is all about himself, for this reason. How true this is, is something, which is open to impression.
Superman is without a doubt, one of the most popular, and enduring of all Marvel Comics superheroes. He definitely is a fictional character that is every inch worthy of like, attention, and praise by fans everywhere. However, it can sometimes be on overload, and the more attention that he does get. The further the overrating does go. This in no way, is putting Superman down, but one has to draw the line and stop right there. The franchise fandom thing is a bit on the extreme side and that is definitely overrated.
It’s good to be overrated in some instances. However, where fictional characters are concerned, it can prove to be a bit annoying and intimidating at the very same time. Therefore, with this said, the list of fictional characters assembled here are still great even if they have worn out their overrated card very good.
