The Walking Dead series enjoyed a 12-year run, giving fans many amazing characters to become attached to. Sadly, no one is safe in an undead apocalypse, and many of those favorites died along the way. With the good always comes the bad, and below, we highlight 10 of the most hated characters featured during The Walking Dead’s 11 seasons.

Bravo to the actors who star in these roles, as it shows their true talents to play such hated characters. These characters are listed in no particular order; this is just a list of characters who have been some of the most hated in TWDU.

Nicholas – Michael Treynor 

Nicholas was a coward, although cunning, and an overall horrible human being. His actions got people killed, and his lack of skills made him feel threatened by those with the survival skills to make it in this world. He stood by many times while others died horrific deaths. In the end, he tried to make amends, but the trauma from his wrongdoings got the better of him.

Sam – Major Dodson

Sam was a whiney kid who, because his parents kept him hidden behind the walls of Alexandria, had no clue what things were like on the outside. His father was abusive, which made him ask Carol for a gun, something no child should have to deal with. Carol also scared the stuffing out of him by threatening to tie him to a tree and allowing walkers to eat him. So it wasn’t entirely his fault he was the way he was. Sadly, when he was confronted with a horde of walkers, he didn’t know what to do, and this would lead to his death as well as his mother’s.

Andrea – Laurie Holden

The worst part about TV Andrea is that her comic counterpart was so badass she wasn’t given a chance. Andrea, on the series was one of the most annoying characters who always had to be in the middle of things, even if she didn’t know what was happening. She shot Daryl; she was mean to Dale, she meddled with Rick and the Governor’s meeting, and so much more. Her death was sad, or at least watching Michonne’s reaction was.

Jessie Anderson – Alexandria Breckinridge

Jessie was a resident of Alexandria, and many of the people living there didn’t understand how it was outside the walls. She was married to a jerk of a man, who was also abusive, but Jessie couldn’t make tough decisions when she needed to. She put Rick in the middle of her marriage troubles, almost getting him kicked out of the community. She also endangered Rick, Carl, and Michonne’s lives when she wouldn’t let Sam go with Father Gabriel. This led to her and her son’s deaths.

Jared – Josh Mikel

They don’t call him “Shitty Jared” for nothing. Jared was the worst, which says great things about the talent of Josh Mikel because he is one of the nicest people around. Jared was horrible. You know he was like this before the outbreak, and in the Savior’s environment, he could truly become the bully he always wanted to be. He was evil through and through but was no match for Morgan Jones.

The Walking Dead – hated characters

Gregory – Xander Berkeley

Gregory was another coward who was always looking out for his personal well-being. He hid in his house at Hilltop in his suits while others did the work. He would betray Rick and the group to Negan and never see anything he did as wrong. There weren’t many sad viewers when Maggie strung Gregory and hung him.

Ed Peletier – Adam Minarovich

The early seasons of The Walking Dead are hands down the best. One of the best scenes is when Shane beats the holy heck out of Ed Peletier. Everyone wanted to do this, so it was great to see it play out. Ed was an awful human being who was abusive to his wife and daughter, Carol and Sophia and deserved the beating from Shane and his death by walker.

Simon – Steven Ogg

One character fans loved to hate was the Savior Simon. He was the calm and cool villain who didn’t have a soft side. Fans loved Ogg’s portrayal of this character. Simon was abrasive and cruel, and his desire to be on top would see him killed.

Sebastian Milton – Teo Rapp-Olsson

Sebastian may not have come around until the final season, but he was around long enough for viewers to hate the whiney, pampered mama’s boy. He ordered everyone around in his entitled way and would lie to save his own skin. In the end, it was great to see Eugene shove that walker into him and his was bitten and then to see him reanimate as a walker.

Lance Hornsby – Josh Hamilton

Talk about a slime ball. Lance Hornsby was another entitled member of the Commonwealth who was so obsessed with the Miltons that he couldn’t see straight. He put on a good show as the nice guy, but his true colors were shortly revealed, and his power-hungry ways took over. This would be his undoing.

Two other characters who deserve honorable mentions for just being annoying. 

Lori Grimes – Sarah Wayne Callies

Lori is one of the most hated characters of TWD for the way she pitted Rick and Shane against one another. She was like a spoiled child who, because she was unhappy, had to make everyone else feel the same. She was awful to Rick and Shane, and almost everyone around her. She pawned care of Carl off on anyone who was close, and when she died giving birth to Judith, while it was an unfortunate death, most fans didn’t miss the character.

Beth Greene – Emily Kinney

Beth was the annoying younger sister to Maggie, a strong, independent woman. In comparison, Beth was just that little sister who tried and failed to live up to the better older sibling. She was whiney and selfish most of her time on the series. Her death came as a shock, and even though she wasn’t a well-loved character, her death, or perhaps the reactions of Daryl and Maggie, tore at viewers’ heartstrings.
