Top Ten American Horror Story Characters

The Top Ten

1 Tate Langdon

He lit Larry on fire, kills 15 people in a school shooting, he kills Chad and Patrick and even goes as far as to sodomize Patrick, but you still feel for Tate. You can see the shred of humanity inside of him and you can see how much he loves Violet and that is what makes him the greatest character.

Tate is my second favourite ahs character and I adore him. Me and my friend both have a crush on him. - Riley2005

He's evil. But at the same time, he has the biggest heart of all characters. All the bad things he has done was to help people, think about it. And he's actually pretty hot. I love evil characters

The first season I ever watched was freak show, but after I finally watched murder house, I can't stop seeing Evan peters as Tate. Not kit not jimmy, just Tate. Maybe because he was 23 and looked like a teenage Kurt Cobain(I mean seriously he looked a lot like Kurt Cobain) phenomenal role I fell in love with Tate after all he did

2 Fiona Goode

She is the best and "Who's the baddest witch in town" - Connorwilson2200

She is in charge everywhere

Phenomenal character.

Jessica Lange in perfection

3 Lana Winters

Badass and one of the strongest characters in the show. Plus you kinda feel sorry for her while she's in the asylum and has gone through horrible stuff like attempted straight conversion therapy, being trapped by Bloody Face, and lots of whippings. - tekutokei

Lana banana

I loved lana - YOUnique253

Lana survived torture from Briarcliff and all sort of shenanigans from Bloody Face aka Oliver Thredson. She escaped and wound up in Briarcliff again. She was released from Briarcliff - kills Oliver - and has to kill her grown up adopted son. She was attacked by cannibals in season 6 and her best friend disappeared without a trace. But she came up on top and is totally awesome. She is tough but she’s no cookie.

4 Sister Jude

She is undoubtedly one of the best Jessica's and AHS characters. Although her dark past and being a stern nun in the beginning, she has such sophisticated character by showing how affectionate, caring, amazing and charismatic woman she is actually with a broken heart. She has such unique, interesting and mysterious lorestory which is excellently written, besides it should be revealed more facts about this marvelous character!
She deserves much better and to being loved, regardless her assumed murder of Missy Stone, therefore seeing her 15-16 years later after the accident as a grown young woman, being hardly recognizable from Jude, as Missy returned back in home with a few broken bones after the incident.
How to not love her as a character!

She turned out to be one of the most down the down to earth characters ever and her character development was amazing. also jude was the only character out of Jessica's roles that did not kill anyone.

She tried to kill leigh emerson and thought she killed missy stone also almost killed mary eunice to help her but those weren’t evil things

5 Constance Langdon
6 Madison Montgomery

Madison is hilarious I loved her - YOUnique253

I Love Her More Than Burgers. - GravityFalls1989

The best ever

She ttied to kill misty day and she didn't rivive zoe and tried to kill kyle - ihatetrump

7 Michael Langdon
8 Violet Harmon

Her storyline will forever be beautiful and yet haunting.

She is the most relatable and amazing character she deserves to be in the top 3

She has an odd mindset showing she's been through a lot and I mean, if Tate Langton can love her, something must be quite intriguing about her.

9 Elsa Mars

Elsa mars is amazing!

10 Addie Langdon

My favorite character on any AHS. Great actress.

She was so nice I'm glad she actually had a good fate. she was in heaven and not trapped in a house with evil spirots - ihatetrump

The Contenders

11 The Countess

The role it's self is amazing and lady gaga just took it to another level. By far one of the best AHS characters.

Played by Lady Gaga? Too good to be true

12 James March

He's evil and humorous at the same time! Another awesome character played by evan peters.

13 Misty Day

I Love Her Bohemian Vibe. And She Deserved To live though. - GravityFalls1989

So sad her fate - Theawsomeyoutuber275

She is the best hobo, is that mean whoops!

anus ass - Theawsomeyoutuber275

14 Kit Walker

Evan peters has a lot of talent! He goes from playing the evil Tate, to kit walker who your rooting for the entire season of asylum! Asylum is the best season, but I don't get why people hate hotel, it was better than coven and freak Show!

Hands Down The Hottest Character Evan Peters Has Played In AHS. - GravityFalls1989

People hate hotel because jessica lange isn’t in it but, while I miss her a lot on the show, I still like hotel

15 Dandy Mott

What's better than a spoiled brat in tighty whities?!

16 Cordelia Foxx

Best character ever. Could handle Fiona and she is one boss ass bitch. Was the best character in Coven and Apocalypse. And her final line gave me chills

17 Liz Taylor

Love her - Rusty665

Queen

You dick that’s exactly what she doesn’t want (people saying she’s gay) she married a woman for clothes - Theawsomeyoutuber275

18 Sister Mary Eunice
19 Zoe Benson
20 Pepper

Ihatetrump - her dying and probably going to heaven with elsa and the rest is better than her being stuck in that asylum which now has convicts with everyone around her thinking that she killed her nephew

Did she think sister jude looks like elsa and kit looks like jimmy - ihatetrump

She should not have died - ihatetrump

I love pepper she is the most loveable character and I wish there was a show all about pepper.

21 Ally Mayfair-Richards
22 Kyle Spencer
23 Myrtle Snow

There are literally no words. She is just awesome in every way possible, especially fasion

Love

24 Ben Harmon
25 Marie Laveau

How the hell is she so low!?! Must day is the most annoying character on the series.

26 Twisty

I feel so bad for him. All he wanted was to make children happy and that was ruined for him. He was such a sweet guy, and although he murdered people, in the long run he just wanted to make others happy.

27 Oliver Thredson
28 Chad Warwick
29 Jimmy Darling
30 Queenie
31 Desiree Dupree
32 Ma Petite
33 Iris
34 Sally McKenna
35 Spalding

42 Will Drake
43 John Lowe
44 Alex Lowe
45 Nan
46 Grace Bertrand

So underrated - ihatetrump

47 Ethel Darling
48 The Butcher
49 Kai Anderson

Kai is my all time favourite ahs character. He kind of turns me on and I would totally join his cult. My second favourite character is tate langdon. I also have a crush on him and totally adore him.

Kai is my favourite ahs character of all time. He kind of turns me on and I would totally join his cult. - Riley2005
