tbh I like all the characters....I'm going thru TLK, SP, 1.5, and TLG rly quickly in my mind and I can't think of any I don't like. even the new chars in 1.5 are very likable imo.
Timon and Pumbaa tend to be the go-to options for a lot of ppl, and while I dislike the emphasis that is put on them as the most 'iconic' TLK characters, I really can't say I dislike the characters themselves.

if I HAD to pick one....I guess I'd say Ed? love the hyenas but Ed's character design/personality appeals to me the least. not rly been into the 'unintelligent mute character as comic relief' thing. but still would definitely not say I outright dislike him

I don't hate any of the characters, and even those I dislike, I don't dislike them much.

TLK: Well the gopher and Sarafina don't really have much to them. Hard for me to really like characters that have no stand-out traits. I guess if I had to pick someone from the main cast, I'd go with Ed, simply because all he really does is laugh and he doesn't feel that important to the story, though I do like him.

SP: Timon and Pumbaa, easily. They were fine in TLK, but in SP, they're out-of-character and poorly written in addition to being used at bad times. How are they out-of-character? For one, they're suddenly terrible at babysitting despite having raised Simba just fine. They suddenly bicker like an old married couple despite not having done so in the first film (I know friends do occasionally fight but good god). They suddenly have these blubbery crying fits during emotional moments despite standing atop Pride Rock with Simba and Nala sans tears in TLK. And unlike the first film, their jokes are more miss than hit. There are some instances in which I think their use was warranted, such as the whole rhino chase scene. But then they're in other places, such as the final fight, where they really don't need to be (also, trained warriors are afraid of a fart? That makes no sense), and maybe it wouldn't bother me as much if they were better-written, but they simply aren't.

TLK 1.5: Uncle Max. He just doesn't feel all that necessary or memorable, and I wish they had gone with the original idea of having Timon's father there instead. And slightly cub Simba. It just seems a bit out-of-character to have him so jarringly rambunctious, considering he just lost Mufasa. Yeah he was very rambunctious in the first film, but that was before Mufasa's death, and I don't doubt that he would return to being playful, but it seemed a little over-the-top. Other than that, though, I love cub Simba and the sweet moments he gets here.

TLG: RotR: Zuri is such a "girly" cliche... I really hope she gets better character moments in the show. Bunga's stink lends itself to fart jokes, that at this point in animation aimed at children, are really tired, and I don't much like his phrase "un-Bunga-lievable". I do, however, like his positive and outgoing attitude, and his willingness to stick by Kion is very sweet.

Timon and Pumbaa really annoy me in Lion Guard.
Especially Timon. He's not even funny anymore, just greedy, arrogant and self centered. Not even in the "funny grump" type, just extremely selfish, annoying type.
Pumbaa in the other hand seems pretty dumbed down.

^Yeah, the whole joke with Pumbaa is supposed to be that he's smarter than he lets on, but TLG hasn't done a good job of showing that.
