Most Hated Grey's Anatomy Characters, Ranked by Fans

Grey's Anatomy has given us plenty of characters to love, but also enough to hate. Whether they're a burden on the hospital or just on you as a viewer, you're definitely not the only one that agrees. We bet you already had some people in mind from the title alone.

You know those annoying characters on Grey's that immediately make you cringe before they even speak? Everyone would be better off if they never even joined, to be totally honest. But we pick our battles as Grey's fans and choose to deal with our least favorite characters in order to see our favs.

Check out our list of the most hated characters on Grey's Anatomy, and rank them in order while you're at it. You still love Grey's, so they can't be that bad!

Eliza Minnick

Grey's Anatomy via ABC

Even if you rooted for the villains on Grey's Anatomy, we're pretty sure you still hated Eliza Minnick (Marika DomiƄczyk). She came in like a storm and her only memorable trait was her relationship with Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw), which was forgettable at best since Arizona deserved better.

April Kepner

Grey's Anatomy via ABC

Let's be honest, it's hard not to hate April Kepner (Sarah Drew). She's always whining and complaining, not to mention she hurt our beloved Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams). No one is complaining that she's finally gone!

Maggie Pierce

Grey's Anatomy via ABC

Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary) just came out of no where one day and tried to steal Meredith Grey's (Ellen Pompeo) spotlight. Sorry Maggie, there's only room for one Grey around here.

Penelope Blake

Grey's Anatomy via ABC

No matter how much Penelope Blake (Samantha Sloyan) eventually made herself feel accepted at Grey Sloan, we will never forgive her. She literally killed McDreamy and that's just not okay.

Miranda Bailey

Grey's Anatomy via ABC

Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) was definitely one of the most hated characters when Grey's Anatomy first began. She's grown on us since then, but it doesn't change the past!

Erica Hahn

Grey's Anatomy on ABC

There was really never a reason to like Erica Hahn (Brooke Smith). As soon as she arrived, she was already causing problems at the hospital. We don't remember where she disappeared to, but at least she's gone!

Thatcher Grey

Grey's Anatomy via ABC

Who does this guy think he is? From abandoning Meredith when she was young, to going as far as to slap her across the face at her work, Thatcher Grey (Jeff Perry) is one of the worst.

Catherine Avery

Grey's Anatomy on ABC

Talk about a sense of entitlement. Catherine Avery (Debbie Allen) acts like she runs the whole hospital, and Jackson's life!

Amelia Shepherd

Grey's Anatomy via ABC

She can blame it on the brain tumor, but we all know she's crazy. Can we trade Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) for Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey), please?

Charles Percy

Grey's Anatomy on ABC

Charles Percy was probably our least favorite who joined the show after the merger. We might feel bad that he died, but we definitely don't miss him.

Preston Burke

Grey's Anatomy via ABC

We really tried to like Preston Burke (Isiah Washington), but he continued to give us reasons not to. He ditched Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) on their wedding day in addition to accepting a Harper Avery Award for work she helped him with.

Addison Montgomery

Grey's Anatomy via ABC

We hated Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) when she showed up in Seattle to come between Derek and Meredith. Addison is the one who first cheated on Derek-- it just doesn't make sense!
