Noble Six was an amazing solider. He may not have had a ton of character development, but he was hyper lethal. Aside from that, I do not understand why everyone thinks the Spartan II's are gods. They are just humans with training, they die a lot. In fact, of the initial 300 there are only, what, maybe ten confirmed alive?

Anyway, on topic, I can't think of any Halo character I really hate. I did not like Del Rio, though the way they wrote him was too... is extreme the right word? I do not like how his character was written. I see no problem with Palmer.

I think I will lock in my answer as Captain Keys. He has always bored me, and I hate that because I want to like him. He bored me in Cole Protocol, Fall of Reach, and CEA.
Just gonna help ya out here, Boba.

-150 children were considered for the Spartan-II Program.

-75 were conscripted into the UNSC for the Spartan-II Program.

-OFFICIALLY, 30 Spartan-IIs died during augmentations, leaving 35 left alive to enter full service. However, 4 of these were Spartan-Black and one was Serin Osman.

-Of the 35 Spartan-IIs, these Spartans are either unaccounted for or alive:
01. Jai-006 (Grey Team)
02. Naomi-010 (Kilo-5)
03. Douglas-042 (Red Team aboard the Spirit of Fire - Potentially KIA)
04. Linda-058 (Blue Team)
05. Maria-062 (Retired from UNSC, alive on Earth)
06. Kelly-087 (Blue Team)
07. Jerome-092 (Red Team aboard the Spirit of Fire - Potentially KIA)
08. Fred-104 (Blue Team)
09. Adriana-111 (Grey Team)
10. John-117 (Blue Team/Solo)
11. Mike-120 (Grey Team)
12. Alice-130 (Red Team aboard the Spirit of Fire - Potentially KIA)

It should also be noted that of those Spartan-IIs that did die, that was over a 28 year war of attrition where nearly every battle was a loss and they were deployed to nearly every major engagement hat included crucial ground battles. So I think the Spartan-IIs have, in fact, earned their reputation. Out of a company of 35 (39 including Spartan Black), having as many as 9-12 survive into the post-war era is something of a miracle.

I hated ALL of Nobel Team. They all sucked. They all had terrible attitude problems, made questionable decisions, and they all died for it. My least favorite was Kat. I cheered when she died. I was literally pumped up when she went down. I was like "YES!".
WTF is wrong with you. That is just sick, man

I know some of that. Sorry for being rude before edit.
most hated goes to palmer.
one character that deserves hate parangosky
I dont like jun in reach, he is fine in the books like new blood and bad blood but he did nothing in the game! Why did halsey need an escort she stayed behind anyways to blow castle base if it was captured. He would've been much more useful if he went with emile carter and 6 maybe emile would have survived even, since jun with his sniper would have gone to the highest point with emile and watched his back. I am thoroughly dissapointed that he couldnt have done more rather than a stealth mission where he kills a couple of grunts and an elite or 2.
Sam - 034, for dying so early.
There are quite a few characters that aren't written great and that leads to me not liking them or at least I feel indifferent about them. Noble team, team Osiris, etc.

Then there are characters that not only aren't written well, but then they are thrust upon us, told to us that we're suppose to care about them and how much of a bada$$ they are and it the only thing it garners from us is contempt. *cough cough* Palmer *cough cough*

And then there are characters I absolutely despise. Parangosky takes the freaking cake on that. Her constant moralizing to Halsey about how "immoral her crimes were", while simultaneously green lighting some of the most immoral genocidal plans in the universe. She's nothing but a hypocritical lying b#*$&, and her whole "oh i'm dying soon, so I'll declassify what Halsey did to clean my conscious" act makes me hate her. And sadly, Osman will probably follow in that exact same vein. Pretty much ONI in general is nothing but scumbags.
I have allways disliked George for blowing himself up. Everyone on that ship should of come up with a plan that didn't involve the death of any Spartans. I get the death and scafifice of a hero thing, but still, the Spartans are one of the only things that stop or slow the covenant. The rest of humanity needed George in the coming fights, not to be left behind and do something that a Marine or device could do. It would of been one thing if George was badly hurt but he wasn't.

Your complaint is likely due to Bungie's handling of NPCs. The final cutscenes just don't even mention the pilots -- whether you've kept any alive or not in gameplay -- implying they were all killed (which I honestly think makes perfect sense, given the brutality of the mission's context), so there's only Jorge and Six left, hence the sacrifice. Ideally, they should've made the final cutscenes first depict the pilots (should any survive to the checkpoint) killed off by a final wave of Covenant, and then proceed to the rest, but I guess Bungie either overlooked this detail or found this too complicated to program, so just left it as it was.

On top of that, personally I'd also like to add a scene showing Jorge's armor penetrated by a pistol charge, further denying his chance to jump ship (also nodding to Sam's death, as portraited in The Fall of Reach novel, get the double reference?), but again that's just my thoughts. People always form new ideas in hindsight, but all sorts of things happen during development, and we get what we get.
One answer. One. Simple. Answer.

Vice. Admiral. Margaret. Orlenda. Parangosky.

She gave the go-ahead for the Spartan-II AND Spartan-III program. And for OPERATION: RED FLAG, she purposefully cut off communications to half the planet Reach so that the other half would have low defenses in the hopes of capturing a Covenant Ship with NAV data....which FAILED!!!

Seriously, everyone rags on Halsey for kidnapping 75 children and trying to make super soldiers out of them all. Parangosky KILLED HALF A PLANET!!! And no one punished her. Well, if I existed in the Halo fiction during the Kilo-Five events, I know exactly how to punish Parangosky. Killing her won't work. Because she's over 70 years old and expects to die any day. No, that's not the way. The way to truly hurt her is to kill Serin Osman. Her apprentice. Her legacy. Her future. Kill her and Margaret will have nothing left. No one to succeed her as head of ONI. And she certainly won't have time to train another person. So yeah, that's what I'd do.
either Palmer or Locke dont really like either if im being honest
Palmer. Hinge head, egghead nonsense.
I hate Halo 3 ODST Buck, and of course Del Rio.
Palmer, Parangosky, and Fireteam Osiris (except Buck).
Use to be Ackerson but I hate Palmer alot more.
Technically not a character, but I can't help but dislike the Grunt Mechs. Who thought they were a good idea???
Jacob Keyes.

Not because of his character- he's a pretty bland authority figure, but there's far worse- but because what this stupid piece of -Yoink- did to me over and over again on Truth and Reconciliation on legendary: run straight into three sword elites and getting yeeted across the entire room.
who is/are the character you most hate Halo universe and why?

My combo are Serin & Del Rio lol
Palmer and Spartan Locke
Spartan Locke
I really don't understand how someone could hate Locke. Apathetic, unimpressed? Sure, but hatred for a character who, at worst, is bland seems like such an overreaction to me.

Because it is. At his worst, you could say he isn’t super dynamic (yet somehow Noble Team and the Rookie aren’t yet get a pass), yet the level of scorn and vitriol directed at that character are completely disproportionate.

For a small bunch, well, I think there’s an obvious reason for their hatred of him that they’d never admit to. Not the majority by any means.
