Top 10 Incompetent Yet Funny Cronies

  1. Jessie, James and Meowth from Pokemon - This Team Rocket trio made the books for becoming the most memorable characters in a line of comic-relief henchmen. These guys always show up in every episode of Pokemon, never knowing when to quit.
  2. Dick Dastardly and Muttley - most famous for their villainous roles in the Wacky Racers and every Yogi Bear spin-offs. If Hanna Barbera never came up with these two trouble makers, we'd probably wouldn't have the comical henchmen we see today.
  3. Scratch and Grounder from The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog - a mechanical chicken and a digging robot who are the first of Dr. Robotnik's henchmen designed to capture Sonic. Kind of like and evil and more annoying version of R2-D2 and C3-PO.
  4. The Beagle Boys from Duck Tales - a family gang of criminals all aimed at stealing from Scrooge McDuck's money-bin. They're usually seen working for different major villains like Flintheart Glomgold, Magica De Spell, and their mom, Ma Beagle.
  5. Bebop and Rocksteady from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - The Shredder's first and only mutant experiments created to take on the Turtles. You'd think that being being part boar or part rhinoceros should provide a big advantage in terms of strength. Too bad they get their butts kicked all the time.
  6. Pain and Panic from Disney's Hercules - Minions of Hades who are capable of taking on any form and yet still manage to fowl up in the end.
  7. Swat the Fly & Smack the Mosquito from Mr. Bug goes to Town - working for their boss, Bagley Beetle, they help by trying to eliminate Hoppity. And by "eliminate," I mean fail.
  8. Emperor Pilaf from Dragon Ball - A blue dwarf who is bent on taking over the world with the help of his followers, Mai and Shu. These three were the first villains in the series that slowly became forgotten.
  9. Petra Fina from Flint the Time Detective - a time-traveling criminal mistress and her two goons, Dino & Mite. Kind of like Jessie from Team Rocket, she's selfish and vain and works for the Dark Lord, aka Tuxedo Mask's evil twin.
  10. Hack and Slash from Reboot - Megabyte's dimwitted robot lackeys. They're low on the list mainly because they later switch sides in Season 3.
