Best 24 CharactersThese are the best characters from the T.V. series 24. This is accounted for by the amount of time this character has spent on the series, significance of it, and how the character plays along with the rest of the characters and the show. This doesn't mean that the character is a good guy necessarily, but if the character is charismatic and fun.
The Top Ten
Kind of obvious, but it can't be stressed enough: Jack Bauer is one of the best T.V. characters of all time. His character arc is underrated, and he is the example of the modern superhero.
Top character. A bad ass. Will do whatever it takes. Losses the people he loves. He has to kill his friends. He gets tortured for a year and a half and still manages to do his job. Great character
Jack was the man! Almeida was usually a jealous backstabber, who always had to be convinced to do something good. Jack did whatever it took to get the job done.
I like him more than Jack Bauer. He is the character that has had the steepest arc and it is all so believable and interesting.
If you think he was the best Jack Bauer's wing man, wait till you see when he turns to the dark side. Jack's meltdown in season 8 was a joke compared to Almeida's bloodlust in season 7. They killed off one of the best female characters just to make Jack upstage Tony. Shame on the writers.
Season 7 proved that Tony is better off having his own agenda. If he is not brought back, I am not watching any more 24 reboots. For me, Tony, Chloe, Michelle, Bill Buchanan and Renee Walker made 24 the show my perfect guilty pleasure. I hate when wonderful characters are killed off for cheap ratings!
Tony is the best character. His stiry lines are good. In season 1 he and jack don't get along. In season 2 jack and tony just start to get along. Season 3 tony has to choose between work and the woman he's married to and he picks the woman he's married to but still manages to save the day. Season 4 we learn David palmer and jack helped him get out of prison tony saves jack and Audrey. Tony admits jack is the only friend he has left. Season 5 he watches his wife die in front of him and he nearly dies. Because of jack asking him to help fake his death. Season 7 tony stays of bad then good then bad just to get the man responsible or michelles death. He is put in prison. Overall tony was never really a bad guy. He lost everything that mattered to him. He just wanted revenge. Really he shouldn't of been put in prison for that long. Deep down tony knew what he did was wrong but regrets it. If michelle lived he wouldn't of been like that. That's why he's the best character. Hope they bring ...more
Tony is the best. Loved him from the start. He acts so soft but deep down he's a bad ass. Not as bad as jack is but Tony can hold his own fight. He's nearly died like three times but survived. Tony kicks ass. In season was he was the best one min he was bad then good then bad again and he kicks most people ass. I hope when he returns in legacy he will be back to his good ways
Tony is a complex character, one who benefits from the clarity of both being good and being selfish. His character development is very central to the story. Plus Tony and Michelle were the best couple of 24!
Chloe was one of the most irritable characters in 24 history when she just started. However, as time passed, she became more like-able and more connectable. Chloe was almost as good at what she did as Jack Bauer did. Not to mention, she had some great quotes.
I loved her as Jack's friend. But I adored the way she worked with Bill Buchanan. They had this father-daughter work relationship that I absolutely enjoyed. Needless to say, I wept as if my own father had died when you know who died.
Smart, intelligent, wonderfully weird. and most important-Loyal
Often underestimated hero of the show!
What Chloe was to the second half of 24, David Palmer was to the first half. He, like Jack, had many tough decisions and almost all of them were the right ones. He was a polarizing character. The only bad thing is that he was part of some bad storylines such as the Verregamo murder story.
He was probably the best T.V. president ever. The writing was weak in season 3 with unnecessary Wayne Palmer subplots. I loved the way be came back in Season 4.
He is honest
My favourite character, he was a good, kind, honest man and I cried when he died
Not the most likeable character in the beginning, Bill Buchanan grew on a lot of us. He had a lot of power and used it in Jack's favor. And he also stopped the white house from becoming a hostage situation.
Bill was a top character. But he was always chucked out of ctu. At first he didn't care about jack then he risked going to prison to help jack. Then in season 7 where bill looks after the president and realises jack is gonna sacrifice himself but stops him and kills himself to save the president what a hero he should be higher up
I genuinely liked him and was really sad when he died. His death hit me harder than any other on the entire show. His character development was spot on, starting off as a bit of an arse before his redemption arc
Love pierce. Even though we don't see much of him. He's loyal. He had some good times on the show where he sabed Martha and helps jack bring the president down. Then season 7 where he tries to protect the president's daughter in the white house. For me he's my second best character first being tony almeida. Aaron was a bad ass as well. Shame they didn't bring him into season 8 or 9 he should be president next
Never a main character, but Pierce always showed up. He was a great bodyguard and a great character all-together. He always did the right thing and just had a charm about him.
He was like a rock! I loved how he served the Oval office, the constitution and the country even when he had to go against the "leaders" he was protecting.
Although she's sometimes overshadowed by Tony, Michelle was a great touch to seasons 3-5 (the best in the show in my opinion). Michelle was really good at her job and was a part of some really good storylines.
Brilliant acting and intricate characterization makes this character unforgettable! Very underrated
Another great character shame they killed her of So soon
Great character -- tough, with uncompromising morals.
Season 5 was great mostly to him. He just resonated with power and also made a good impact on the forgettable Season 8.
What a great role, well played
Nina was a great dynamic character in season's 1-3. She showed Jack's past and how he had to move on from her. Also, her killing of Teri was such a great cliffhanger to season 1.
Her and Jack are the best! I LOVE her! She made 1-3 so much more intense!
Only showing for 1 and a half season, but her influence was very good. She was basically Jack's apprentice and could be a good example of what I could be if I was paired up with Jack for the first time. She started to know when and when not to cross the legal line but that couldn't last her through the 8th season.
She could be Jack Bauer 2.0.
They need to find a way to bring her back from the dead.
Edgar is the definition of a savage. He doesn't even have to try, he just is one. GET EDGAR TO NUMBER ONE!
Love audrey beat female actor on the show. She was so good in season 4 and 5 nut season 6 we didn't see much of her but she should of been in every episode from season 4. Then season 9 she sees jack the man she loves then she is killed. Rubbish writing for her
I liked how she transformed from just a Bauer girl in season 4 to a strong DOD operative in season 5. I hated what they did to her in season 6. Horrible writing.
He should be in the top 10. He was tortured like hell and still manages to work. He was a good character
Loyal Character. Knows what to do for his country even when it come to his own life.
Needless to say Hassan should be in the top 10
His voice is cool...
