    Bendy is a one-time character from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, who appeared in the episode "Everyone Knows It's Bendy" as the titular main antagonist. He is the imaginary friend of a boy named Gregory who was sent to Foster's because of his troublemaking. He was voiced by Jeff Bennett.

    Why Everyone Intentionally Knows He Sucks

    1. Firstly, he caused trouble all over Foster's. He is characterized as a malicious troublemaker who enjoys putting everybody through awfulness and always succeeds at doing so, and unlike a much funnier mischievious devil, he comes off as more annoying and unlikable rather than entertaining and fun to watch.
    2. His characterization is really flat and one-dimensional. He gets Bloo, Coco, Wilt, and Eduardo in trouble for no explainable reason, although this is likely because of the episode's bad writing.
    3. What makes him especially infuriating is that much like Sarah (from Ed, Edd n Eddy), Rodrick Heffley (from the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series), and Micah Brill (from the Goosebumps book "Revenge R Us"), he has no good reason as why he acts this way or why he got Bloo and his friends in trouble other than because he can.
      • Though to be fair, this is also the result of bad writing in the episode he appears in, and the fact that a lot of important scenes were cut from said episode, presumably due to time constraints and the fact that the episode was going to be a double-length episode which doesn't help in the slightest.
    4. He is also an extremely pathetic antagonist as well, since the very fact that he always cries crocodile tears to both Frankie and Mr. Herriman every time he intentionally causes trouble which makes him come off as nothing more than a spoiled brat to the point that you will most likely not take him seriously.
    5. He fooled Frankie and Mr. Herriman and convinced them to take his side over Bloo, Coco, Wilt, and Eduardo with his made-up sob stories, making them both additionally out-of-character as the two know for a fact that the other imaginary friends had lived at Foster’s longer than Bendy has.
      • Worse still, his acting skills of making up sob stories are very poor and unconvincing so much to the point that each time Frankie and Mr. Herriman fall for it, it makes the two look like complete idiots.
    6. Whenever he is about to cause a misdeed, or most infamously, gets anyone in trouble and gets away with it after that, he makes an evil grin, which is extremely punchable.
    7. Near the middle of the episode, Bendy acts very mean-spirited to Bloo; the worst example is during the intercom were after poor Bloo gets banned from doing his favorite things until further notice, Bendy then uses the latter's toothbrush to clean the toilets, which is utterly mean, and outright disgusting.
    8. He never gets any comeuppance for framing the others out of malice and gets away with it at the end, making him a high-profile example of a karma houdini.
    9. While his design is pretty creative by the show's standards, it looks like a rejected design for the Grinch.
    10. He even delivered a bad message to viewers by showing them that being a bully to others is okay and standing up for yourself is wrong, which got repeated by Goofball McGee
    11. While Jeff Bennett does a good job voicing him, his voice can arguably be very irritating, whiny, and ear-piercing, such as in the annoying scene where he and Bloo tried making a louder laugh at each other, in addition to whenever he fake-cries in front of both Frankie and Mr. Herriman.
    12. He is also a Gary Stu as he is shown to have excellent skill in troublemaking and manipulating other people and he always gets away with his misdeeds unpunished.

    Intentional Redeeming Qualities

    1. He did get initially scolded and blamed for flooding the house (and can be considered as comeuppance) at the end of the episode, which is perfect karma until Bloo ruined it by explaining his revenge plan.
      • He thankfully gets his comeuppance for his actions in the video game Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends: Imagination Invaders by getting scolded.
    2. Since he is the main antagonist of the episode, he was pretty much meant to be hated.
    3. Just like Goofball McGee and Jamze Withazee, who are also two one-time characters in Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Bendy was thankfully never seen again after "Everyone Knows It's Bendy", though this does not affect the quality of Bendy at all.
    4. If you assume that the Bendy signature on Mac's 'Goodbye' card in the series finale of the show is that of the same Bendy, it means that despite all his negative qualities, he was at least willing to sign a farewell card for Mac, which is surprisingly nice of him, even if it doesn't redeem him of all his bad deeds.

    Trivia

    • Despite not appearing in any other episode of the show, Bendy's signature was seen on Mac's 'Goodbye' card in the series finale of the show "Goodbye to Bloo", though it might be another character who's also named Bendy.
    • Despite him appearing in one episode, he has been featured in other Foster's Home media outside the show. In the Game Boy Advance game, he appears as an enemy who throws items at the player. In the Leapster game, he steals Cheese's horse and causes Bloo to go on a quest to stop him. In the Nintendo DS game Imagination Invaders, he breaks some busts and draws on a wall, but then, Bendy gets caught by Bloo.
    • Both Craig McCracken and Lauren Faust, who wrote the episode "Everyone Knows It's Bendy", admitted having regretted creating Bendy, owing to the negative reception the character and his debut episode had so much to the point that Bendy in general is completely ignored from the entire show in subsequent episodes.
