    33 More Movie Characters People Believe Are The Most Irredeemable Of All Time

    If "Big Yikes" were a personality trait, all of these characters would have it.

    We recently asked members of our BuzzFeed Community, "Who is the single most unlikable movie character of all time?" and their blood-boiling entries sparked even MORE insufferable responses! So, with that in mind, here are a few more of the worst characters ever committed to film:

    1. Hans, Frozen (2013)

    Walt Disney Studios

    "Not just from the whiplash of his reveal — he's straight up murderous and hateful the whole time!"

    2. Abigail Williams, The Crucible (1996)

    20th Century Fox

    "She was so mean! I mean, Winona Ryder was great, but goddamn! I hate her in that movie!"

    kjorn

    3. Tony Manero (and his friends), Saturday Night Fever (1977)

    Paramount Pictures

    "They are absolutely the worst. They are narcissists and rapists, but for some reason people only remember their costumes and dance moves?"

    jessicamartins

    4. Severus Snape, the entire Harry Potter franchise

    Warner Bros.

    "He was not a hero! He didn't have any redeeming qualities, and I'll come right out and say it! He deserved to die, and deserved to die a much more painful and agonizing death, because — when it came down to it — if Voldemort had said, 'I have to kill James and Harry, but I'll let Lily live,' Snape would have been okay with that and never would have switched sides."

    5. Gaston, Beauty and the Beast (1991)

    Walt Disney Studios

    "How was he not on the first version of this list?! He’s SUPER narcissistic, rude, and arrogant. He doesn’t make any attempt to be a gentleman when interacting with Belle, and he kidnaps her father — threatening to send him to an asylum — unless she agrees to marry him. I'm GLAD he was killed in the end!"

    6. Harper, Happiest Season (2020)

    Netflix

    "Period. End of sentence."

    shalewark

    7. Special Deputy Charley Rakes, Lawless (2012)

    The Weinstein Company

    "He was pure evil. The entire theater applauded when his character was killed."

    cmc1114

    8. Alexandra Forrest, Fatal Attraction (1987)

    Paramount / ©Paramount/Courtesy Everett Collection

    "Characters like that deserve a special place in hell!"

    maryjoe13

    9. Judge Claude Frollo, The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996)

    Walt Disney Studios

    "Claude FREAKING Frollo. He’s a racist, an ableist, a religious zealot, a murderer, a stalker, a gaslighter, a psychologically abusive sociopath...must I go on?"

    ravenlady2911

    10. El Guapo, The Three Amigos (1986)

    Orion Pictures

    "He bullies a poor town, kidnaps and plans to rape Carmen, and is even said outright to be 'a selfish lover!' He has no redeeming qualities. Even his last living moment was a dick move."

    angels4d4906ef4

    11. The Duke, Moulin Rouge! (2001)

    20th Century Fox

    "He never fails to turn my stomach. He is abhorrent!"

    —Amber Brindley, Facebook

    12. Humperdinck, The Princess Bride (1987)

    20th Century Fox

    "That is all."

    maywellandarcher

    13. Mike, Why Did I Get Married? (2007)

    Lions Gate / Lions Gate / courtesy Everett Collection

    "HE BROUGHT HIS LOVER — AKA, HIS WIFE'S BEST FRIEND — TO A COUPLES RETREAT AND MADE HIS WIFE DRIVE IN THE SNOW WHILE HE AND THE LOVER WERE ON THE PLANE?!"

    ericataylor1

    14. Sophie, Mamma Mia! (2008)

    Universal / ©Universal/Courtesy Everett Collection

    "She’s not a villain, but I really hated her. I mean, you invite three men who MIGHT be your father to your wedding, and then in the end you said, 'Oh, it doesn’t matter who my father is!' and skip out on the wedding all together?! She is one of my least favorite characters of all time."

    —Rebecca Woolf, Facebook

    15. Al Pacino, Heat (1995)

    Warner Bros.

    "He was everything that's wrong with a cop."

    moon725cat

    16. Liv AND Emma, Bride Wars (2009)

    20th Century Fox

    "They were both terrible to one another and I kept watching the movie thinking, Wait, why are they even friends in the first place?"

    angelam487733d39

    17. Calvin Candie, Django Unchained (2012)

    Columbia Pictures

    "(I could also make a case for Stephen.)"

    gaelicmaiden

    18. Joni, Knives Out (2019)

    Lionsgate

    "I cannot stand her. I have never disliked a single character in a movie so much."

    joyfuldays09

    19. Adrian Yates, American Ultra (2015)

    Lions Gate / ©Lions Gate/Courtesy Everett Collection

    "He was such a little prick!"

    maekess

    20. Mary Epps, 12 Years a Slave (2013)

    Fox Searchlight Pictures

    "What a straight-up sadistic bitch."

    byrddude88

    21. EPA Inspector Walter Peck, Ghostbusters (1984)

    Columbia Pictures

    "I’d explain why, but no explanation is better than Ray’s: 'Everything was fine with our system until the power grid was shut off by dickless here.'"

    josephaloysiusc

    22. Harry, Love Actually (2003)

    Universal Pictures

    "Who cheats on international treasure, Emma Thompson?! Jerk."

    —Cindy Felts Armstrong, Facebook

    23. Janis, Mean Girls (2004)

    Paramount Pictures

    "This may be an unpopular opinion, but she is insufferable and acts like she is so much better than the plastics when she's not. Honestly, she may even be worse."

    evanrfrazier

    24. Charles F. Muntz, Up (2009)

    Walt Disney Studios

    "Not only was he trying to capture an endangered species, but he then attempted to destroy a man's house and dream. He also bullied his dogs into doing his dirty work. He was really not a great guy!"

    r4b4b20f2b

    25. Pepper Potts, the Marvel Cinematic Universe

    Marvel Studios

    "I truly cannot stand her. I don't know exactly how to explain it (and I don't think it's Gwyneth Paltrow because I like her in other films). The character just comes across as holier-than-thou, but trying to appear demure, yet spunky. Watching that entire character is like nails on a chalkboard for me."

    cowhitehead930

    26. Steele, Balto (1995)

    Universal Pictures

    "He made my blood boil! Children were literally dying and all he cared about was himself. He bullied Balto, he made him look dangerous and dishonest, and he was just creepy with Jenna!"

    eleonorat3

    27. Jenny, Forrest Gump (1994)

    Paramount Pictures

    "Sure, she’s one of the first people to be kind to Forrest, but then she runs away and doesn’t come back when she’s pregnant with his child. She only returns when she knows she’s DYING."

    annmarieo40d22c218

    28. C-3PO, the Star Wars franchise

    LucasFilm Ltd.

    "This guy was so annoying. I wish he got left on Tattoine and destroyed by Tusken Raiders."

    stylishpenguin64

    29. Meredith, The Family Stone (2005)

    20thcentfox / ©20thCentFox/Courtesy Everett Collection

    "I kept trying to sympathize with the way they were treating her throughout the movie, but I just couldn’t. She’s just so unlikeable (and not to mention the dinner scene, it's so cringey)!"

    getoutofmyswamp22

    30. Captain Hadley, The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

    Columbia Pictures

    "Frustratingly unbearable."

    bigga2

    31. Mr. Harvey, Lovely Bones (2008)

    Paramount / ©Paramount/Courtesy Everett Collection

    "Are we not going to talk about that creepy dude? I love the actor (Stanley Tucci), but goddamnit, his acting in that movie just gives me awful chills."

    —Kaye Saint Amit, Facebook

    32. Kathryn Merteuil, Cruel Intentions (1999)

    Columbia Pictures

    "She was so manipulative."

    kailaaamarieee

    33. And finally — Iosef Tarasov, John Wick (2014)

    Lionsgate

    "What about that guy who killed John Wick’s dog?!"
