Shameless: The Worst Thing Each Main Character Has Done

Shameless focuses on one of the most dysfunctional families in history, and each character has done something unforgivable in the show.

Shameless: The Worst Thing Each Main Character Has Done

Based on the UK TV show, the long-running Shameless series tells the story of one of the most dysfunctional families ever seen: the Gallaghers. The story is set in Chicago's South Side and contains plenty of controversial characters and spine-chilling scenes that, sometimes, fans have difficulty understanding. While some of these characters' actions might be comprehensible, others are hard even to watch.

Some of these characters seem to be redeemable throughout the numerous seasons, especially since their actions often are the result of their drastic economic situation and family problems. However, their issues do not justify their actions, so let's take a look at the acts that are most difficult to forgive.

10 Ian: Seducing & Stealing From An Old Man

Ian Gallagher is one of the most complex characters on the show; most of his despicable actions are, however, caused by his bipolar personality disorder. In the 9th episode of season 4, Ian and Mickey desperately need and search for money. At a bar, Ian solicits an old married man for money and, just as he starts undressing, Mickey intrudes and takes a picture of the two of them, then blackmails the man to get his money. Luckily, Mickey couldn't let Ian sell himself, but Ian didn't think twice before seducing and threatening an innocent man.

9 Fiona: Hitting Her Mother's Corpse

Although Fiona Gallagher might be the most reasonable and decent member of this messed-up family, she has done despicable things as well. Besides cheating on good and loving boyfriends, one of her most despicable acts is punching her mother's corpse (Monica) right before her funeral. Her mother surely wasn't the best parent in the world, and it's easy to see why Fiona lost her temper on such a day, however, laughing, cursing, and ultimately hitting her corpse was too disrespectful and wrong.

8 Lip: Kicking Fiona Out

Philip Gallagher is another particular and fascinating character, despite his frequent bad decisions. In the 11th episode of season 9, Lip is in a particularly bad mood and takes it out on Fiona; earlier, the Child Services had shown up and his AA sponsor, whom Fiona got drunk with, had a bad relapse.

He blamed her for the events although she tried her best with the CS and didn't know about his sponsor being a hundred days sober. Lip ignores that she is in a really bad situation, because no one ever notices when she's the one crying for help.

7 Mickey: Frequent Violence

Mickey Milkovich was raised in a quite violent and old-school family, which explains his issues with accepting his homosexuality and expressing his emotions. He grows a lot throughout the series, however, he doesn't lose his aggressive behavior: hitting, fighting, planning a murder, etc. seem to be his natural responses to provocations (even when minimal). He's not a bad person, but he doesn't change his violent ways, which is his most despicable act.

6 Monica: Cheating On Frank

Although the early relationship between Monica and Frank Gallagher isn't displayed in the show, her most despicable action is beginning to disrupt their family by repeatedly cheating on him. She's a quite messed-up character too, therefore, she committed many terrible things; but when Ian is revealed to be the son of Frank's brother, she admits to recalling the affair but not the specific one, making it clear that she had been unfaithful plenty of times, which makes it her possible worst act.

5 Carl: Selling Guns In School

Although he was just a kid, the path Carl took at some point in the show is quite dark and scary. Throughout the series, he also gets involved with selling drugs and other despicable things, however, even if he didn't know any better, putting everyone's life at risk by selling guns at school is unacceptable and dangerous.

The saddest part is how easy selling weapons seemed to be for him, and how easy it was to get all the teachers to buy them.

4 Karen: Raping Frank

Karen Jackson, at first introduced as Lip's best friend and lover, might be one of the most hated characters of this show. She broke Lip's heart multiple times and has done plenty of despicable things; she's overall a terrible person. However, her lowest point was when she raped an unwilling Frank. He was blamed for sleeping with her, however, things went differently: she pinned him down while he was incapacitated by drugs and kept repeating "no."

3 Mandy: Running Over Karen

Sister of Mickey, Mandy Milkovich has also adopted her family's aggressive behavior and responses. She's never been perfect, like any other character of this show, however, she crossed the line when she planned and pre-meditated Karen's murder - even though the latter survived and ended up with permanent brain damage. Mandy had been fighting for Lip's heart for a long time, and Karen was seriously toxic to him, but that doesn't justify running her over with the car.

2 Debbie: Raping Matt

In season 5, Debbie Gallagher decides she wants to lose her virginity. She invites her friend/crush Matt to a party and, when Matt gets drunk and passes out, she climbs in the bed, makes him wear protection, and sleeps with him- all while he isn't able to react. Due to their age difference, he never presses charges; the day after, however, he confronts and tells her "Friends don't rape friends," then cut contacts with her for good.

1 Frank: Killing Dottie Butterface

Dottie Butterface is one of the characters with the saddest storylines and endings. She needed a heart transplant because hers barely worked, but Frank Gallagher saw her health problem as an opportunity: he tries to get placed in her will to get her pension money after her death. She eventually won a heart for the transplant at the medical lottery, however, Frank answers and tells them that she's already dead. After that, Franks bangs her to death because her barely working heart cannot take sexual activity.

Scoob! Characters Sorted Into Hogwarts Houses | ScreenRant

Scoob! is a new animated film that continues the Scooby-Doo! legacy. The movie's characters can also all be sorted into their Hogwarts Houses.

Scoob! Characters Sorted Into Hogwarts Houses | ScreenRant

Scooby-Doo has been part of pop culture for decades. He and his Scooby gang have had dozens of movies and television shows feature them solving mysteries with masked men pretending to be monsters - and ones where they’ve had to stop actual monsters. 

RELATED: 15 Best Scooby-Doo Movies

For the most recent adventure, reinvents the team’s origin story and sees them take on an actual supervillain with the aid of a team of heroes. The story is more science fiction than fantasy, but this new generation of characters would certainly be familiar with Hogwarts. Velma, at the very least, would be interested knowing just where she and her friends .

10 Fred: Gryffindor

Fred isn’t the brightest of bulbs, but he means well. He’s all about justice and doing the right thing. Fred even wants to avenge his van at one point, so he’s willing to take the whole heroic thing pretty far.

He might not come up with the plans in this version of the story, but he’s certainly willing to be the one on the front lines fighting for his friends, and that makes him a Gryffindor.

9 Dick Dastardly: Slytherin

Dick Dastardly does nothing for Slytherin’s image problem. are Slytherins, but he certainly is.

Other than his loyalty to his own dog, Dastardly doesn’t really care about anything except his own power and wealth. He wants to be the guy everyone bows down to; his dog getting caught up in that was just an unfortunate oversight on his part.

8 Dee Dee Sykes: Ravenclaw

Pilot of the Falcon Fury and all around hero, Dee Dee is actually difficult to sort. She’s clearly committed to saving the day as much as any hero, but she’s also the one doing most of the research into just what it is the bad guy is after.

RELATED: 10 Best Episodes Of The Original Scooby-Doo Series, According To IMDb

Dee Dee is clearly the brains in the Falcon operation. She’s the one who wants to get as much information as she can in order to figure out the next step in a plan. That sounds pretty Ravenclaw, though she might be disappointed she isn’t sorted into Gryffindor.

7 Dynomutt: Gryffindor

The Blue Falcon’s sidekick is a whole lot more than a sidekick in this version of the story. He’s the one calling the shots on the battlefield, for the most part. 

Dynomutt is brave, committed to doing what he sees as the right thing, and pretty stuck on his own opinions. He constantly looks down on Brian for not being as heroic as his father, though he eventually realizes that Brian needs a pep talk and not criticism, so he switches tactics. Dynomutt knows how to get through to heroes.

6 Daphne: Hufflepuff

In the live action version of Scooby-Doo, Daphne is more of a Gryffindor as she learns to physically defend herself and her team, putting herself on the front line. This operates on the talk first principle. She’s all heart. Velma even refers to her as an empath.

Daphne is immediately accepting of pretty much anyone. The little robots that hold her captive for Dick Dastardly? She befriends them. She’s, quite possibly, the nicest member of the Scooby Gang ever.

5 Captain Caveman: Gryffindor

Like Dick Dastardly and the Falcon team, Captain Caveman is a classic that joins in on the fun. He’s actually an obstacle for the Falcon team as he’s guarding the last skull that Dick Dastardly needs for his plan.

RELATED: 10 Plot Holes In The Scooby-Doo Franchise

Captain Caveman is welcoming and friendly, but he’s got a job to do. That’s the only reason he decides to fight the Blue Falcon. That sense of duty doesn’t clash with his sense of morality. He has no idea what the skills are of the people he might be going up against, but he takes them on anyway. 

4 Velma: Ravenclaw

Could Velma ever be sorted into any Hogwarts house other than Ravenclaw? Sure, she’s brave and has a lot of loyalty for her friends, but she’s also someone who is completely fascinated by the world around her.

At one point, Velma even voices how impressed she is with the design of Dick Dastardly’s robots, much to Daphne and Fred’s displeasure. Velma wants to know how things work first instead of worrying about why they exist. 

3 Shaggy: Hufflepuff

Shaggy is often the butt of the jokes in the old cartoons. He’s usually not quite as intelligent as his friends, but that’s not the case here. Instead, Shaggy comes up with plans just as often as Velma or Daphne, though it does surprise them.

Ultimately, however, friendship is the most important thing to him. He walks away from Mystery Inc. when he believes that they’re going to choose funding over friendship. Shaggy risks everything to save Scooby-Doo. He’s even willing to be stuck in Alexander the Great’s magical underworld treasure chest forever to save his best friend.

2 Blue Falcon: Gryffindor

In the Hanna-Barbera world, Blue Falcon is one truly super hero. This version of the Blue Falcon is actually Brian, the son of the one Shaggy looked up to as a kid. Brian has a tough time living up to his father’s image, but he desperately wants to be a hero.

He focuses on his look - and other people’s perception of him - first. By the end of the movie, however, he’s no longer hiding in a “superior vantage point,” but in the thick of the fight, saving the day. It takes him a while, but he grows into his Gryffindor sorting.

1 Scooby-Doo: Hufflepuff

It’s tempting to sort Scooby-Doo into Gryffindor. After all, he’s ready to be seen as the hero long before Shaggy even steps off the Falcon Fury. Truthfully though, Scooby is the epitome of loyalty.

He and Shaggy have their very first fight, and it wears on him when they go their separate ways. Scooby might want to be seen as special by other people, but he’s more concerned with being there for the friends he already has.
