Best Characters From The Office

The Top Ten

1 Michael Scott Michael Gary Scott is a fictional character on NBC's The Office, portrayed by Steve Carell and based on David Brent from the original British version of the program.

Dwight is awesome, but Michael Scott is the most loveable character in the entire series. The show lost it's spark after he left in my opinion.

Michael Scott is really mean, but hilarious at the same time. No doubt about it, he's my favorite!

Michael is my least favorite person on the show I think he is very annoying sometimes I just want to slap home across the face but I still love the show

He is simply the best part of the show, carrying it along. Dwight may be funny but his character wouldn't flourish without Michael- a more normal boss probably wouldn't endorse his weird behaviors like Michael does.

2 Dwight Schrute

Dwight is arguably the funniest character in the office. His overreaction to everything mixed with his condescending responses and attitude as well as his rugged, farmer mentality make him a definite favorite in this show.

He is a majestic beauty that can be described in only four words:
Battlestar Galactica.

The only thing that kept the show up after Michael leaving is Dwight.

Dwight is by far the best character and has much better character development than any other character and Jim sucks

3 Jim Halpert James Duncan Halpert is a fictional character in the U.S. version of the television sitcom The Office, portrayed by John Krasinski.

Jim definitely deserves to be higher up than #3. He should be #1.
Here's my list:

1. Jim Halpert
2. Pam Beasly
3. Creed Bratton
4. Karen Filippelli

I hated Michael, in my opinion Jim was the best character. Jim was the funniest character. He was also smart and quick. And just look at his face in the picture. It really defines him.

Jim is my favorite character because of his pranks and relationship with Pam

I LOVE Jim! Watching him mess with Dwight is what made me like the show in the first place. He is the perfect combination of funny and sweet..

Him and Michael are the absolute best. Here's my top three:
3. Pam
2. Michael
1. Jim

4 Pam Beasly

My second favorite character.

1. Jim Halpert
2. Pam Beasly
3. Creed Bratton
4. Karen Filippelli

So chill, like-ably awkward and adorable. Typically, I'd vote Dwight or Michael, because they rule, but come on. Pam is a sweet heart and a very underrated character. Maybe not the best in the show, but definitely one of the bests. I loved her from episode one and still do, even if she wasn't handled too well near the end of the show.

Michael and Pam is a tie but I am gonna vote for her because she is not appreciated enough

Pam is amazing I love her. She smart kind funny and sometimes a little dorky

5 Creed Bratton

I thought Creed was pretty funny. One of the funniest things about him was the mystery of what he does, and we know that he's done some illegal stuff.
Here's my list:

1. Jim Halpert
2. Pam Beasly
3. Creed Bratton
4. Karen Filippelli

The only character I would gravitate towards in that office. Man's obviously got history!

"You were in the parking lot earlier, that's how I know you! "

There's just something... off... about this guy. Hands down the darkest--and ergo, funniest--character in this series.

"I want to set you up with my daughter. Oh, I'm engaged to pam. I thought you were gay. Then why would you want to set me up with your daughter? I don't know."

6 Andy Bernard

Up until season 9 easily had the best character arc of the show.

I was trying to think of my favorite Office character before settling on Andy Bernard. They turned him into a complete jerk in season 9, but looking past that (and pretending that season 9 never happened in this case), he truly had one of the more heartwarming arcs. He started out as a bit of a jerk, but then became a new man, and a funnier man. He then turned into a very likeable character when he fell in love with Erin, which was one of the better The Office relationships. And, then when Michael left, he became a great boss. Then, after that, everything kind of fell apart, to be honest.

Andy's easily one of the most likable characters after Michael leaves. Jim is great, but Andy's much more of a complex character in the show. The writers had put so much effort into Andy and everything that happened to him as a whole. Andy and Erin's relationship was great, and the office was at a turnover once he became regional manager. He's like a mixture of Michael, Dwight, AND Jim all at once! He's great and in my opinion the best character.

I can never forgive the office for what they did to Andy in season 9 but he was easily my favorite character and I still can't believe after all that time they spent building up Andy and Erin's relationship was wasted in the end, Andy was a fun, talented and heartfelt person in the office but at least Andy got a job at Cornell when it was all said and done

7 Kevin Malone

I cannot go to prison, Oscar. I am not like you. have you not heard about it? you would definitely love prison.

"I will quit! With God as my witness, I will quit if this is not fixed! "

(crying about long walk to the office) XD

"If someone gives you ten thousand to one on anything, You Take it, If John Mellenkamp ever wins an Oscar, I am going to be a very rich dude"
What a Dumbass
Definitely the one of the funniest Characters in this show

Kevin is by far the funniest character in the entire show. His facial expressions never fail to make me fall out of my chair laughing; and the fact that he has no filter and just says whatever is on his mind results in some extremely funny moments. One of the best moments of the entire show might have been when he dropped the chili in season 5. Kevin is one of the funniest characters I have ever seen in any T.V. show, and he deserves to be WAY higher on this list than #7!

8 Stanley Hudson

"Yeah I got a game, It's called workin' hard so my grandkids can go to college"


"And the doctor said, if I can't find a new way to relate positively to my surroundings, I'm going to die"


These lines makes Stanley one of the best characters if the show. He may be bone idle and unenthusiastic, but he sure does give a good laugh whenever he speaks.

"Every day I wake up in a bed that's too small, drive my daughter to a school that's too expensive, and then go work at a job in which I get paid too little. But on pretzel day... well, I like pretzel day." (Possibly the best line on the office)

My favorite Stanley moment is in the episode, "Take Your Daughter To Work Day", when he was yelling at Ryan. "THAT LITTLE GIRL IS A CHILD! "

9 Erin Hannon

I adore her father-daughter relationship with Michael. She is caring and funny! They did need a new receptionist. Pam is great but was getting a bit boring sometimes.

Her character is so adorable! Her and Pete are one of my favorite couples in the show. Their so cute! Wish they had more screen time together... (T^T)

Funny, endearing, genuine, and just all around lovable. Best character of the office by far

She's so lovable. I love her expressions!

10 Darryl Philbin

Yeah Darryl is great. He may be one of the most "normal" characters in the show, but I think his dexterity and dry sense of humor really balance out the show.

Darryl is great, really deserves to be at least in the top ten.

Belongs to the top ten in my opinion. He perfectly represents that chill, mildly hoggish, slightly egoistic black dude.

The Newcomers

? Cathy Simms

The Contenders

11 Angela Martin

Angela is actually so funny - I find myself dying of laughter every time she says a line. She is so extremely blunt with people, making her hilarious, and every sentence she says is exactly to the point and concise - she is SO funny.

"There is poop raining from the ceiling! Poop! " Angela's sense of humor was different but it was one of the funniest. I loved seeing her relationship with Dwight

I relate to her ha and her relationship with Dwight was the absolute best.

I don't really know why I like her so much, but she is definitely my favorite.

12 Kelly Kapoor

Why is she here?

She should be last she is the worst her voice is so annoying

"Ryan used me as an object" is the best line from The Office ever.

Kelly is just plain annoying and naive.

13 Ryan Howard


Because Ryan started the fire.

Ryan is that premature acting, hasty, self-evident and conceited prick. lol

He slightly resembles BJ Novak, the guy who created the show. I wonder why

14 Mose Schrute

I loved when he was the valet for the garden party and floored the car into the cornfield

I like how Mose runs away after he gets caught.

The way he runs and never says much is hilarious. Also the one time he puts Angela in the trunk of his car is funny.

Love Mose, particularly the scene in the background where he hit Andy in the head with the football.

15 Oscar Martinez

I love oscar, he's great! He had to most wonderful friendship with angela at the end and I adored his sassy remarks throughout the series.

Oscar is one of my favorite characters, and extremely underrated. I love his friendship with Kevin, his interactions, and his personality. I love that he is smart and I love his snarky remarks. While the character arc with the senator portrayed Oscar in a bad light, I still adore this character. Should be rated higher on this list

Intelligent, kind, funny, handsome and appears to be the hardest-working employee. He would be my friend I hope if I worked in that office ().

Oscar is a queen and a gay icon we stan.

16 Todd Packer

How does he have such great reviews? He is known for making the show terrible! That’s what he is supposed to do!


This dude Is hilarious

This guy goes all out with his little moments in the show. #GreatCharacter

17 Holly Flax

She's truly Michaels soul mate, even if she sometimes tries too hard to be like him, which isn't necessary and sometimes annoying. She seems a little insecure and strange sometimes.

Michael's wife and the best girl out of all the girls Michael's dated

Holly is awesome!

18 David Wallace

After Dwight, Michael and Creed, it should be David.
Jim and Pam are funny because there's Dwight.
Oscar is noticeable because of Kevin.
I'd vote for Karen than Pam anytime.
Andy - awkward character
Erin - extremely dumb to watch.

Should be number one

Suck it

He's neat

19 Toby Flenderson

The best actor for this job. A great looser with such great dry humor

Everything that is wrong with the paper business

If I had to bullets and I was in a room with hitler, bin laden, and toby, I would shoot toby twice.

If it were up to Michael, I suspect Toby would be at the very bottom.

20 Deangelo Vickers
21 Karen Filippelli

I was a fan of Karen because I'm a fan of Rashida Jones. The thing I didn't like about her is that she sort of separated Jim and Pam and took away part of Jim.
Here's my list:

1. Jim Halpert
2. Pam Beasly
3. Creed Bratton
4. Karen Filippelli

Unpopular opinion: but I liked her and Jim more than jim and Pam

Could have had a lot more impact and be sophisticated and interesting, but she mostly seems like just another person existing.

Very underused character unfortunately.

22 Prison Mike

Prison Mike reminded me a little bit of Michael Scott. Anybody else?

Best Character by far. He really should've been in the finale.

The worst part about prison were the dementors

"I never got caught neither"

23 Jan Levinson

I found the dinner party hilarious with Jan playing her issues off of the guests and Michael.

Shear genius - plays the straight laced boss brilliantly and then transforms the character into the sex crazed slightly insane dominatrix type partner, bet she had real fun playing the role

24 Nate

Sensible, insecure and pretty weird dude.

"Daryl I will look so handsome for you."

By far the most underrated character

The most underrated character on the show. FYI, he doesn't have a hearing problem...

25 Roy Anderson

Roy sucks!

26 Nellie Bertram

Nellie is hands down the funniest, her sass will cut a bitch

27 Hidetoshi Hasagawa
28 Bob Vance

Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration

29 Cecilia Halpert
30 The Scranton Strangler
31 Meredith Palmer

Definitely lost quite an amount of brain cells to alcohol to say the least.

I mean when she's not an alcoholic she's pretty okay

Take her higher, she deserve that though

The most honest character.

32 Finger Lakes Guy
33 Clark Duke
34 Philip Schrute

The new era

35 Hank Tate
36 Brian the Boom Guy
37 Jo Bennett
38 Val
39 Charles Miner

"No excuses guys, lets get on this." 2 seconds later. "Screw this, Soccer is life."

40 David Brent

Even though he has a 2 small cameos in season 7 we know a lot about him through The Office UK
he is a great character who should get more notice by the people who watch the US version

41 Philip Halpert
42 Helene Beesly

Really funny and her dating story with Michael was Hilarious. Too underrated. Imagine if her and Michael ended up together

43 Tabatha

She camped out all night for the Sabre store opening! Show some love people!

44 Phyllis Lapin

She is probably the least appreciated character on the show. She is amazing.

I like to think of her as the cancer of the show. No offense.

God I love phyllis

I wonder what people like about me? Probably my jugs

45 Robert California

He reminds of Trump and seems like a psycho- or at least sociopath to me. He's very opposite of Michael, being very manipulative, serious and egoistic, knowing what he wants and how to get it. Examples of his manipulativeness: from the first moments he came in, everyone obeyed him almost like slaves and some were even scared of him, when he tries to reach out to Dwight, he fails because Dwight is a good manipulator and intelligent person himself, too.

The Lizard King.

He wired and has sone of the best quotes ever why are people like finger lakes guy higher

How the hell is he in the last place?

46 Pete Miller

The underrated and overlooked dude with some slightly hidden potentials it feels like.


47 Gabe Lewis

I like him. Feel he's underrated. Certainly not the best but deserves to be in top 20

Gabe is kind of the opposite of Ryan in some ways. He's clearly also immature and new to the business world, but tries hard to be liked and accepted (even too hard sometimes). He's also capricious and big headed.

Gabe is awkward and uncomfortable but one of the best characters on The Office.

I love him so much!

48 Devon White

I love how Dwight brought him back at the end!

49 Josh Porter
