Top Ten The Walking Dead (Video Game) Characters

My favorite characters in the video game, The Walking Dead.

The Top TenXW

1Lee Everett

Lee was my favorite guy! He is so amazing and he is the best characters! He will do anything to protect Clem! But until the end he died that made me feel sad and angry. I am so mad that the zombie bit lee! Now... Until I saw his death I was crying very bad! I had nightmares about him in my sleep. But until season 2 comes out Clem will be by herself. What happens a person was there and being mean to Clem or fighting off zombies. I wish lee was there and still alive so he can protect Clem from zombies and people who are trying to hurt or kill her. :(

Lee is honestly one of the best characters to ever exist in video game history. He's kind, he's generous. but its his undying loyalty is the best bit about Lee Everett. And his father daughter relationship is the sweetest thing ever in video game history. It was hard for all the Walking Dead community to see him go. Many were not interested in Season 2, due to not having Lee there. Lee may not get along with all the characters and he may be a murderer. But that doesn't make him a horrible person, the great thing with Lee is he doesn't lie, he is a honest person. And I think we can all agree that Lee's ex-wife is a complete idiot. Lee has moved all the players of The Walking Dead community. Lee new what the right thing to do in quick situations, he would do anything for Clementine, Lee always looked out for the kids, Lee put everyone before himself, Lee never gave up even when he got bit. But most of all Lee was a kind souled person and truly deserved a better ending. R.I.P Lee, rest ...more

Lee is the best character in this game because (if you play him as a non- a hole guy) he is very selfless and caring, and he would protect Clementine no matter what. Lee murdered a senator who was sleeping with his wife, and was able to find redemption through the zombie apocalypse by taking care of Clementine, he is a good man but his past keeps others from thinking so. Ultimately as Carley says in episode 2 "I've seen situations like yours hundreds of times it doesn't have to make you a bad man." Lee's death touched many players emotionally and will probably not be forgot any time soon

Lee is number 1 no body can beat him and way better than rick

Kenny is just one of those characters whom you can become attached to. He has flaws, which makes him human and more likable, but he loves his family and has a good heart. If you back him up, you will reap the rewards of a friendship that does not seem confined to the virtual emotions of a video game.

Kenny is a true hero, he saves Lee from the zombie horde when all hope seemed lost, he survived countless encounters with mad bandits and cannibal survivors, he had to go through the loss of his wife and son dying, he stayed with Lee when Lee was going to die, he helped find Clementine, sacrificed himself to save Ben/Christa, Saves Clementine countless times and stays with her till the very end. When it's Kenny VS Jane, the one I picked was the one I loved, and the one I loved was the moustache man who has been with us since the very first episode of Season 1... Long live kenny!

Ever since the first chapters in the game I was undeniably in love with him and his family, he was always there to rely on even though he has his flaws and temper. When his family died it made me cry for all of the three characters, and let's not forget about what happened to Kenny in the end. I felt like he didn't deserve what had happened and that Benny shoulda died alone instead if it was to happen after all that the group had gone through (I know I'm a bad person for that) So when my heart had been ripped out by Kenny in the first game for numerous times, I was absolutely stunned when he appeared in the second game. I literally cried, I was so happy that he was back again. He always had his bad points, but in the end, he was a good and loyal friend. I expect everyone who shot him in the end ro think deeply about their doings.

Kenny is a really Bada*s character. I love how he's the one who can live until the very end! When it comes down to Kenny or Jane I chose Kenny, he's really savage like

Clementine is the cutest kid ever who can survive on her own! Truly the best character ever in the walking dead. So much awesomeness.

Clementine is amazing and lived the longest so far in her previous teams. She is extremely hardcore and sorry Kenny fans but she's way more compassionate and doesn't get herself all drunk. She's also very mature for her age and I can actually relate to her more than any other character surprisingly. Also Kenny fans please no hate for this is merely my opinion and I respect yours as well and see your reasons.

How is Kenny higher than the sweet girl you died to find? She is badass from all those zombie kills!

She was cute in season 1 and I like how she became more mature in season 2

Carley is a person with a very good moral. She is always helping people instead of letting them die and becomes Lees love interest. If there was one character who I would have know Lee's past it would be her. I disliked the way they killed her though. I give Telltale props for shock value but I think they should have kept her around more to build more of a relationship with Lee before killing her off or making her whereabouts unknown. Plus even though I was shocked by Carley's death I think I would have been more surprised to see Lilly shoot herself instead. I also hate the fact that all Lee would've needed to say to keep her from getting killed was that she was the one who sent you in to check on the stolen supplies in the first place. She literally says "it's probably worth following up with Lilly about the stolen supplies.", and it didn't even give you the option to say that

Carley saved Lee and Clementine many many times even if it risks it. I don't care if she doesn't know about the batteries. It's the zombie apocalypse does it even matter? She is so much better than Doug (Not hating on him). She's third in my book. Wish she could've at least made it in Episode 4. God... I hate Lilly... Hope she doesn't return in Season 3. If she does, then I'd shoot her right away if there's an option to. - chris267

She is a great shot, speaks her mind, and is one of the few characters that could have had a great relationship with Lee it was sad to see her die.

Carley was a well-written, level-headed, realistic character. She was protective and could've been a great girlfriend for Lee. She never had to die. I was shocked when Lilly shot her, but it would've been more shocking if she'd lived or if Lee had jumped in front of the bullet, or even if she shot herself. She should not have died.

Luke would have left Clem in the forest to died and become a walker who said to taking her to the cabin pete who was against it luke. Luke treated Clem like crap in the forest when he though Clem was bit that act like a hypocrite and get after them of doing it. Asks about your dead parent and how lee die. Get piss off if you judged his friend and get piss off if you stand up for your friend. Get caught steal food Kenny lost his eye because of it then show not remorse of it and want to leave him get piss off if you say no. Has sex instead of helping the group. More upset about jane leaving who he barely know then the deaths of nick and sarah. Cover up a murder. Didn't listen to Clem and get shot. Treated people who gave him food and a place to stay. Asks how Kenny family died. Run away when his friends were in trouble. Was going to leave sarah to die. Show more concern about jane live and didn't bother thinking about Sarah. Want to stay instead of finding food.

Luke suck, I was piss off that Clem couldn't kill him, I was piss when he return in episode 3 and 4, it took why to long for that ass to died why to long. I happy he dies and can't be saved and very happy if you make the RIGHT choice and not risks your life for ass that doesn't not deserve it, Bonnie can died to they both be walkers forever which is what they deserve. It pathetic that people cryed and are not going to playing s3 because luke died pathetic really pathetic. This guy piss he off the second I met him, I thought he was going to get better but no, covering a murder, stuffing his face instead of helping his group, having sex instead of helping his group, helping someone who try to kill us, man very episode he just got worst, the happiness moment is when he Finally die it just took dame long. It gross that his fan what him to have sex with Clem which is why they killed him, because gross pervert pedophilia don't deserve a luke ending they deserve to be punished and they ...more

I was very happy when Luke was killed off it was the happiness scene in to whole it just piss me off that I had to wait 5 episode for it. He should have got killed instead of pete, he should have fell off the bridge, nick should have shoot him be accidental, should got killed by carver, die off cam, die in the trailer, killed by the Russians, but no 5 long episodes with that prick, who got killed off because people made him into pedophilia

Luke should be number 1

He is not a bad guy, always thinking positive and caring about others. Also, even in bad situations he can stay positive or ironic, and that's because I like him. He reminds me on myself or how I would like to be and I really would like to know him in reallife.

Omid is the man, funniest character in the game

Omid was the comic relief. To bad that stupid gangsta shot him.

Omid was fine enough, but he was too unserious man. I understood his jokes. But it was not to my taste.

I honestly see myself in Ben, making him my favorite character in the game. He never wanted to hurt anybody, and I think he actually saved a lot of lives with his actions. Just think for a moment: If the bandits didn't get medicine from Ben, how else would they get it? By waiting for Lee and Kenny to go out looking for supplies, killing EVERYONE, and then ambushing Lee and Kenny when they got back. Then they would loot the camp. Sure Carley/Doug, Katjaa, and Duck die, but that is better then EVERYONE dead. He always got everyone's bull, and was hated by most of the survivors. Kenny always was pushing him around, and kept telling him he should be dead. Even though he always had the pure intentions, he was still hated my most. He was just a kid, he didn't deserve what he got in the end.

Everyone thinks Kenny lost everything, when Ben also lost his family, his school friends. All of these people would be extremely close to him. Ben is just poorly written and unrealistic, his character is just a tool to progress the story on until his death. He tries to save the group but ends up making a mistake, just like a normal human. People love Kenny for his countless mistakes he makes and claim its him just been a human, but Ben does exactly the same but people hate him for it. Ben also sticks by you at all cost where as Kenny only looks out for him and his family.

Ben has found it very tough, like most character within the group he loses his whole family or they are unknown. Like he says in episode 5 if you choose to save him he stands up Kenny.

Was a great guy always trying to help yes it went wrong but in the motor Inn surely the bandits would have killed everyone anyway also he told you to save yourself at Crawford so he is a true hero but I wish he survived along with chuck

Reason why Clementine is alive (in a lot of ways). He was a great man, so sad he killed him off. If only you had a choice to save him.

Chuck is the reason Clementine is alive from Ben running away but I still think Chuck should have lived and kill the kidnapper.

It turn's out he is one of the people who barely swear... (There are a lot of swear's in this game. )

Chuck better then luke

Honest, good forgiving guy with a great and useful skill set. Would've liked to see more of him.

A great guy, too bad he's dead, those St. Johns killed him and cut his legs off. Damn, he was so good, he was like my favourite character.

Most loyal companion ever even as a zombie he still has your back.

*Spoilers* Good guy Mark: He turns into a zombie but he still has your back.

While most people killed him off in the first episode, I found him one of the best comic reliefs in the game, where at one point he saves your life with a laser pointer.

The most underrated character in the game.

Most people dismissed him right off as a non-valuable nerd, but I find him the most human out of everybody in the game. He never boss anybody around, he don't fight zombies her and there, but he always save people whenever he can, look what he did to Carley in Macon and how he died when he's saving Ben. I can relate to him the most and in real life I would certainly be best friends with him. I love him so much.

He's a sweetheart, and a really attractive boy

The Contenders



In my opinion, Christa is one of the few characters in the game that is facing problems in the present. I mean, think about it; she was pregnant, (up until season 2) Omid has now been shot, and she was confronted and possibly beaten up or even KILLED by a gang (? ). Even though I'm pretty sure that this poll (or whatever) is closed, I wanted to type up my opinion of Christa publicly.

I like Christa because she took care of Clementine all by herself for 16 months, longer than Lee. I think it's possible for her appearance in Season 3.

Christa is single handedly one of the best survivors in the game. She managed to survive with Clem for 16 months alone and that isn't by any means a small feat.


Lilly is a really great character with a lot of potential. She is misunderstood and actually has some good points. I believe if she lived as long as Kenny then more people would've sided with her. I believe she is still alive and will be in season two. She made one mistake, killing Carley/Doug, but if she explains and apologize, I can forgive her one mistake.

I think out of Kenny and her, she's the most rational leader of the group. And she isn't that bad as a character. You can even see her soft sympathetic side if you sided with her.
Overall she's a pretty decent character, unlike Kenny.

She is everything I would expect of anyone in a zombie apocalypse: she speaks her mind, she's protective, she handles herself well, need I say more? And her tendency to become aggravated makes me love her more! So wish she didn't die.

She could see how evil Lenny was

He was so cool. I wish he was still around. He ended up becoming a plot device to further the development of an annoying and ultimately doomed character (sarah).

Carlos is awesome he may come off as mean but he's just that way to protect sarah

I liked how he was always trying to protect Sarah from the cruel world that they're in, he was a very good character, I just wish he would've lived longer

This guy was so boring! - DenMark2

I think Molly is the most badass character in the game. She beat the sh$t out of Lee and Kenny and owns walkers with her ice axe, yet she also cares about other people

Best character there is! Greatest survivor, greater ally!

If you have to save her and you miss the shot, she will escape.

But when you kill the zombie she will later apologize for not mounting a boat.

I think that is very crappy, because this apologies is clearly for not crossroading a story.

I first thought Jane was like another molly but not quite as badass

What I liked mostly about him was that he died as a hero, sacrificing his life and that was something completely unexpected. When you usually see you don't see a hero. But that scene proved how much of a badass he really is.

His death as a zombie was both brutal and heartbreaking. But at the same time I hate Telltale for making his death a bit contrived/convenient. Same for Luke!

Nick is sometime mean but I found out he got a good heart because he said sorry to clem

He's a troubled kid trying to survive an apocalypse without his loved ones. He's been through a lot because he lost the ones he loved. He would do anything to protect his friends. He's a good guy

He was just annoying, I'm sure he was a good guy, but I just didn't like him very much

When I saw this list, I thought to myself, hey, why not vote for Lilly? But when I saw poor Katjaa this far down, I was like, oh hell no! Katjaa deserved better. She is actually my second favorite character, after Lilly. She has great potential but instead her overrated husband got ALL the attention. I feel SO bad for her. Rest in peace, Katjaa.

I think she is a realistic character. She wants whats best for her family and group. Nobody ever notices how loyal she actually is. Her death was horrible.

In my opinion she was wasted as a character. She had barely any lines and was completely useless until the middle of episode three. But I realized that she just wanted her son to be okay. But when he wasn't she couldn't handle it. RIP KATJAA

She was so nice and caring, I miss her so much

He is from the walking dead game and show, which makes him even more awesome, and I really want for Clementine to have a cameo in the show.

Sorry that he leave, he could be great character and big help.

Never played the game but Glenn is my favorite T.V. show character so I am voting for him

V1 Comment

Pete could've been the new Lee! He was my favorite cabin survivor and was the nicest to Clementine. In the end, he was killed off too early for character development for Nick (which Nick never even got! ) Nick should've died instead of Pete.

Pete didn't deserve to die that way

V1 Comment

I felt so bad for Walter, and the way he saved Nick. You could tell he was still grieved when he shot the Walker, but he knew Nick was a good guy based off of what Clementine told him. (Unless you choose to tell Walter that Nick is just like all the others)

He's such a nice guy, I can't believe he wasn't even on the list! - clementineishere

Walter did not deserve to die like that after he forgives nick such
A nice guy
