Top Five Wednesday: Characters on the Naughty List

Find more about T5W here! This week is the second Christmassy (ish) topic and is Characters on the Naughty List! Not all of these are villains (okay 4 of them are, but still. The last one I just hate as a character).

Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter

I think she’ll be on a lot of lists today, but she’s the WORST. She’s just bad for the sake of being bad. Like, at least Voldemort is evil for a reason. Umbridge is just bad.

Joffrey Baratheon from Game of Thrones

UGH Joffrey is the WORST. He’s similar to Umbridge in that he’s just a shit. He has nothing redeeming about him (which is a super interesting character choice on GRRM’s part, but more on that in another post).

Miss Hilly from the Help by Kathryn Stockett

Hilly is a super interesting character (as are all the characters in the Help), but she’s not a nice person at all. But she’s such a good character!!!!!! (again, more on her in another post)

Stanley Kowalski from a Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams

This is a play and I highly recommend it! Stanley is such a dirty person and character.

Alex Delaware from the Alex Delaware series by Johnathan Kellerman

HOKAY if you’ve read ANY of Kellerman’s books, you know Alex Delaware is the MOST Mary Sue character to maybe ever exist. He’s literally just Kellerman’s wet dream. He was a psychologist/therapist, but while he was in grad school he did some investing and he manages to make a shit ton of money so when he graduates he only had to work for like five years and is now retired and just does some contracting work for the police? AGH I hate him. I never bothered to finish the series because he was SO MARY SUE I just couldn’t. Apparently he gets better but I highly doubt it. I should say he’s not a bad person at all. He was a child psychologist and he genuinely cares about helping children, but that just adds to his Mary Sue-ness.

Again, I got a little ranty at the end (but he is the worst Mary Sue, in case you hadn’t figured that out by now). Which characters were on your naughty list?

Thanks for reading! xx

  1. I agree about Umbridge. She seems to be mean and evil for the sake of being that way, not because of anything that happened to her or with any Grand Purpose. (Voldemort’s plan of purifying wizard-kind was a horrid Grand Purpose, but at least it was one.)

  2. Personally, I think Umbridge is worse than Voldemort. The wizarding world is lucky that these two didn’t join forces to take down Harry and Dumbledore.
    But that would lead to more books and now I’m sad that this didn’t happen 😢
