Top Ten American Horror Story Characters

The Top Ten

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

She is in charge everywhere

3 of the top 4 characters are played by Jessica Lange.
No explanation needed

2 Tate Langdon 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.

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

I LOVE HIM DADD - addicted

3 Constance Langdon
4 Sister Jude

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 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

I loved lana - YOUnique253

6 Elsa Mars

Elsa mars is amazing!

7 Dandy Mott

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

8 The Countess

Played by Lady Gaga? Too good to be true

9 Addie Langdon

My favorite character on any AHS. Great actress.

10 Violet Harmon 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.

The Contenders

11 The Butcher
12 Misty Day

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

She is the best hobo, is that mean whoops!

So sad her fate - Theawsomeyoutuber275

13 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

14 Liz Taylor

Love her - Rusty665


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

15 Madison Montgomery

Madison is hilarious I loved her - YOUnique253

I Love Her More Than Burgers. - GravityFalls1989

Even though she's a bitch on the outside her character is actually quite deep and has so much potential

She is one hell of a bitch

16 Pepper

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

She's so cute. - CamAsff
