6 Overrated Fictional Characters That Failed to Impress

Everyone has at least one fictional character that they can relate to. But some well-known fictional characters don't always sit right with fans.

Whether it's the character's personality or an issue with the writing, it always sucks when our favorite movies and books have that one character that we can't stand.

In a testament to Stephanie Meyer's character writing skills, u/phantom_avenger said, “I mean most of the characters in that series make me cringe.”
