Best 13 Reasons Why Characters

Best characters from the show based on the 2007 novel by Jay Asher.

The Top Ten

1 Jeff Atkins Jeff Atkins

He influenced Clay as his mentor and friend. The most positive, kind and caring character on the show. - Drake_thelistmaker

It's so easy to hate a lot of characters in this show, but Jeff is the only one that is an exception. He supported Clay and helped him throughout the show. He is such a simple character, but holds a lot of positivity.

Jeff was the nicest character who inspired Clay to get out of his comfort zone and get a life. He was supportive, true, and honestly hot.

Who is this again?

2 Tony Tony

Tony is the most likable character on the show. He's a good person and friend, kind, compassionate, smart, hard-working and mature for his age. - Drake_thelistmaker

He's the guy who is really a true friend - to Hannah and Clay. He proved himself as not just a "fair-weather friend", but stuck with Clay despite everything Clay did to him and blamed him for. Level-headed, funny, protective, cool, (dang good looking), and kind, Tony's #1.

Tony always stood with Clay and was a good friend to Hannah. He also supported the Bakers in tough times.

Useless version of Yoda :P

3 Alex Standall Alex Standall

He's very realistic and he sees things as they are. He's smart and even though he doesn't talk that much, his words says a lot.

If this show was directed at Alex and not Clay, I would 100% still like it. Alex plays such a good rule

Alex was one of the closest Hannah's friends. He's probably the most sane character on the show. - Drake_thelistmaker

He's the only one to right away realize what he did wrong and actually feel terrible about it.

4 Zach Dempsey Zach Dempsey

The kind-hearted jock. Lonely and misunderstood, the character you didn't expect to like. - Drake_thelistmaker

I have to admit, I didn't like Zach until I saw episode 7. Now he's in my top 5!

He is the sweetest guy and he is good at everything I love him so much

5 Justin Foley Justin Foley

Great Guy, Number 2 on my list. He did some bad things but when you consider what he did at home. He had a good heart deep down

Though he did terrible things, I don't think it compares to what some others have done. Especially considering his home life.

The jock, first person from the tapes and Hannah's first kiss. Wants to be accepted. He did terrible things because of his problems at home. - Drake_thelistmaker

Justin Foley is great. Think about it he is a really great person and should not be getting any hate..

6 Clay Jensen Clay Jensen

The main character. Sweet, kind and good, but also irrational. We all know that he might have just listened those tapes at once and help people who needed that (Tyler). - Drake_thelistmaker

This guy shows true emotion to losing Hannah... but he does so when losing Jeff; because both collide? How is this Clay's fault?

How is he only at 5? he's obviously the best character.

His so adorable

7 Jessica Davis

She suffered so much and made a couple mistakes which is only human

She is the one Who suffer the most and of course She can be a trainwreck but She has the right to do so

8 Sheri Holland

Good person, scared of the consequences of her deeds. Tries to fix things up. - Drake_thelistmaker

Nice person that was scared

Boyfriend kisser

She 's a nice girl

9 Hannah Baker Hannah Baker

The main character, she was kind and smart. The story focuses around her suicide. Bullied by her peers and misunderstood. - Drake_thelistmaker

Hannah Baker. I cry over this girl's words. My mom commit suicide a few months ago so it's really hard. She's so beautiful and she is just a innocent person.

Hannah is my favourite character by far! She was not selfish, "a dick" anything like that. I know many people say that it was awful that she made these tapes and that they could cause that 13 persons will now kill themselves as well but I don't think so. The point of the tapes is not to make them suicidal she just doesn't want them to get away with what they did and in my opinion that's totally understandable. I mean they practically killed someone. Hannah is for me just really relateable and gorgeous. And she's extremly sassy! She deserved better!

The fact a user can call her 'kinda a dick' meanwhile voting for her bullies is everything that this show is all about - Stop victim blaming.

10 Ryan Shaver Ryan Shaver

He's ' hillarious.

The Contenders

11 Olivia Baker Olivia Baker

Hannah's mom. Wants the justice and truth. Struggles after losing her only child and shows what parents feel. - Drake_thelistmaker

Next to Sheri and her Husband, the only characters I liked and didn't want to punch in the face every time they made a dumb decision o simply said something annoying as hell.

12 Bryce Walker

R U KIDDING ME?! Bryce shouldn't even be on this list AT ALL!

What? I don't understand why he's even on this list... he and Courtney are the characters I hate the most from the show!

Most relatable character the show has to offer.

The real lad

14 Montgomery de la Cruz

Super nice and sweet, helped Alex when he was having a bad day how. So underrated.

15 Lainie Jensen
16 Matt Jensen

Looks like Messi

wise man

17 Sherry
18 Marcus

He is a guy who made a big mistake and doesn't know what to do because he doesn't know a lot about girls

19 Skye Miller Skye Miller

Clay's childhood friend, cares and loves him. - Drake_thelistmaker

20 Tyler Down

He was just doing what he does with pictures. Also, he may have a death list and may shoot some people. Lastly, he sent the picture of Hannah and Courtney around because when Tyler asked Hannah if she would like to hang out, Hannah laughed. So Hannah was rude to Tyler - Jets
