Pumbaa and Timon, as well as pretty much anybody who isn't Shenzi.

Oddly... the only ones I cannot stand are Kiara or Kovu. I find Kiara is a complete and utter brat and is annoying all the way through the film. Kovu is just.. eh. Such a boring character and when it comes to being Scar's heir he is just hopeless xD Can't fight to save his life and ugh!

I've seen The Lion King 1.5 or whatever it's called a total of once as I didn't particularly like it and can't even remember half the new characters if I am honest... If I was more familiar with the film there would probably be a few on my list from this one too xD (Isn't a fan of the sequels)

^ I'll refrain from defending Kiara and Kovu aha. I'm too lazy too.

I don't particularly dislike Timon and Pumbaa, but too much of them isn't healthy for my opinion of them lol (hence my general dislike for 1.5)

I don't mind Zazu in the first one. But in the SP, he just has nothing to do. He's just there because he was in the first one (but that is like a lot of the characters: Nala, Timon, Pumbaa, Rafiki. They were only there because they were in the first film).

In SP, I don't like Nuka, for the reasons listed previously. But I did feel sorry for him when he died, all he wanted was Zira's approval :(
Vitani... I really don't like her. She just seems to involved with Zira's plan to have changed to Simba's side that easily at the end. I mean, she looked like she was all ready to kill Nala when they fought, but then she changed sides so quickly.

I do quite like Kiara, but she I can only handle her in small amounts. After a while she becomes too annoying. Her whining and complaining. :roll:

Zazu, Timon and Pumbaa are the worst characters in both movies

How can zazu/timon/pumbaa be the worst when sarafina and that gopher thing exist? Sarafina is barely a paperweight, one line of dialogue... We know nothing about her other than she's nalas mom.

That gopher thing wasn't even given a name in the end credits.

I can understand some people liking nuka but to me he belongs more in a loony toons short rather than the lion king. I will give him credit that he had characterization beyond 'i'm the mom of an actual important character'.
Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves back up again.

I would say that Timon and Pumbaa from TLK II are rather not my cup of tea. In the first movie, they served a vital role for the plot, but in the second movie, they were really shoehorned in as well as being forced to play up the whole breaking-the-forth wall, out-of-the-world characterization.

In TLK 1, I like them. In 2, I find them even to be rather unbearable. Yeah, I said it.

It's probably due to the fact that those two merely serve as extras. They're not relevant to the actual plot and are just there for very minor purposes, so they're excluded from the discussion by default. One can't really judge the core characteristics of someone that isn't really integral to the experience and is only a notch above background character status.

I would say Scar, out of any of the main characters. He is a good villain but he's just... Well, evil. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of motive for anything he did other than pure jealousy. That is a great villain because its like "I don't need a motive, some people just want to watch the World burn." but at the same time, its not a very interesting character IMO. I like villains where you can kind of understand where they are coming form, even if they are coming from the wrong place. Like Zira, she has a reason to want revenge on Simba. Scar was just kind of "I'm evil. 'Nuff said."

I also love Zazu but will admit that he really doesn't add anything. But hey, if it means Rowan Atkinson's voice was in the film then that's got to be worth something.
