For example:
Things that I find Overrated:
Steven Universe (I don't like it)
MLP: FIM (most overrated cartoon of all time, I never got why it was so popular.)
Attack on Titan (it grossed me out )
Star Wars
Most Disney products (too formulaic, sappy, and cliched)
K-Pop (just a dumb rip-off of J-Pop)
Netflix (there's so much better streaming services better than it)
Gurren Lagann (Good? Yes. But being hailed as the best anime of all time? No, that title goes to Gundam SEED Destiny to me. Kill la Kill by the same creators is 10x better.)
One Piece (Over 700 episodes and they still haven't reached One Piece? They must be the worst pirates ever!)
Naruto/Naruto Shippuden (It was good until after the Pain arc, where it got downhill to a path of plain lunacy. BTW, the video games are better than the anime. Also, the sequel Boruto should've never existed.)
Flandre Scarlet (She's one of my favorite Touhou characters but I feel like she's the most overrated Touhou character of all time due to people overhyping her to not be a big Mary Sue. To me, Flandre Scarlet actually feels a bit like a Mary Sue.)
almost everything by Gen Urobutchi
Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans (Good but very pretentious in my opinion.
)
Undertale, Minecraft, and FNAF (Three games I'll never play due to the annoying fanbases that they have.)
Things that I find Overhated:
Gundam SEED/SEED Destiny (I never got the hate they get. They are my two most favorite anime series of all time.)
Frozen (The best Disney movie I've ever seen. The haters just hate on it because it is popular.)
Where the Dead Go to Die (I've seen much worse animated movies/movies in general than it. It's still a bad movie though.)
Bee Movie (A great animated comedy)
The Powerpuff Girls 2016 (It's meh.)
Powerpuff Girls Z
every Tom and Jerry direct-to-video movie
Tom and Jerry Tales
The Tom and Jerry Show 2014
Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi (so bad it's good)
Furbies (one of my guilty pleasures is playing with them)
the Precure/Pretty Cure franchise (Haters claim that the franchise is a big sexist rip-off of Sailor Moon. Haven't they ever watched more than one episode of the franchise? Precure actually teaches girls to be strong in a patriarchal (male-centered) society by having the Cures fight with not only magic but with martial arts! Heck, one of the series (Heartcatch Precure, which by the way is my favorite magical girl anime series of all time), dealt with dark issues such as gender politics, death, family matters, and even homosexuality (
)! Sure, it's targeted at little girls but that doesn't mean it's bad!)
Kill la Kill (Sexual fan-service done right)
So, please reply if you would like to share the things you personally find either overrated or overhated.

Do you think that they are overrated or overhated?
To me (a 16-year-old Autistic girl), they are overhated. They are actually fun stress relievers for me!

I think they're over rated. I've seen some cool tricks done with them on Dude Perfect. There's is an object called a fidget cube which actually has different things on it to fidget with. I find it to be a little more useful, and it doesn't break easily.

Overwatch is a perfect example of Overrated. Its a good game, but not game of the year material; in my opinion.

I agree on fidget cubes (especially the 12-sided ones) being better than fidget spinners.

MLP isn't popular. It's just popular with weird 'bronies'.

Overrated - SAO, Cowboy Bebop

Underrated - watching Trigun ATM. Forgot how great this show was

Aw dude, I remember Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi. I'll always defend the greatness of that show solely for the "Stu-Pi-Doh" episode.

Overrated:
-Wolf's Rain and Terror in Resonance (probably two of the most boring anime I've ever seen)
-Thinking SAO is overrated

And I don't know if it really counts as "overhated," but I do think Kid Icarus: Uprising should've got more love. It's such a fun game, imo. I hope they make a sequel at some point.

Overrated -

Kimi no na wa:
It's good but I don't think it should be the highest rated show on myanimelist.

Underrated -

SAO
While initially overrated the show has been the anime communities favorite punching bag for like 3-4 years now and if you mention it anywhere online everyone is ready to bash it. The show has the obvious issues that have been rehashed thousands of times for the past four years but it really isn't that bad.

I wouldn't dismiss the people who dislike Frozen. Some may have legitimate comments regarding it flaws, and I most certainly thing there are better Disney movies, especially those made during the Disney Renaissance, and Pixar if you want to include them.

There are indeed a great deal of shows I find much worst than Sword Art Online, quite honestly.

That being said, Where The Dead Go To Die is noted for having poor quality to match its incredibly disturbing imagery and plot. I find it hard to imagine people not being somewhat appalled by the nature of its existence. Especially since AOT is far less gross and perhaps more meaningful than Where The Dead Go To Die, other than being an exercise for you stomach.

I don't believe it is over hated. I dislike pointless imagery like this.

That being said, I dislike the terms "overrated" and "overhated". It seems unnecessary and maybe even juvenile, but that is just me.

Well, you should check out anim8ball's review on it for more details on why it's overhated in the link below:

It is still a bad movie but I feel like there's far worse animated movies or just movies in general out there than it in my opinion (like Rapsittie Street Kids: Believe in Santa, G-Saviour, Bolivar El Heroe, and Dorbees: Making Decisions).
