Best Characters in the Godfather Triliogy
The Top Ten
Simply the best character ever in the series, and one of the most fabulous characters in cinema history!
Brando and De Niro just created magic in this movie.
I thought Brando was okay and De Niro was unforgettable.
Cool..fair..feared...would never have allowed fredo to be killed...and would have intervened on pentangelis behalf
I don’t know why most people prefers Vito, Michael is the best and and Al Pacino is a better actor than Brandon Brando
He took the family to a different level. He is unquestionably the best.
He surpasses the Godfather. He has to be higher.
Cold hearted..methodical..somewhat paranoid...killing fredo was unnecessary
Tom, along with Vito are the only major characters that don't have a major flaw. Sonny is a great character, but his hot heated attitude can make him come off as a jerk at times. Fredo is also great but obviously lacks intelligence and strength. (I'm counting this as Fredos flaw rather than betrayal because I really don't think fredo intended to betray Michael, he was simply lied to by Roth and Ola which I chalk up to as dumbness.) Michael is obviously an outstanding character as well but by end of the second movie he has become unbelievably cold hearted given how his character started out. Tom doesn't have a major flaw, he's smart, a voice of reason, loyal, etc. At no point did he make a major mistake, or commit any act of betrayal. Tom is the most underrated character by far.
Layal to a fault...smart..and dependable...Not a war time consigliere..lacked ability to make hard choices
Better than Michael
Tom may have done morally questionable things working in the family business but he was the sort of friend you wanted in your corner He,s a loyal hard working and Smart guy yet Tom,s also not afraid to tell you when your wrong as he desperately tried to persuade Sonny to think pragmatically and raised moral objections to Michael,s plan to kill Hyman Roth Tom and the corleones in general can also be counted on to Honor their deals so as far as Criminals involved in plotting mass murder go Tom,s a stand up guy
Horrible Don...let his emotions override his intelligence...and way to impulsive..but loved his family
He was hot-headed, but also loyal and very protective of his family. He's an amazing character in the trilogy.
The coolest mob character ever!
One of the best!
Loyal...loyal and loyal...he would cook dinner for you then kill you in a heartbeat if given the order
He, one of the coolest character in the Trilogy,
He got screwed..he deserved better after a lifetime of loyalty to the corleone family..Michael should have helped him
His death was so sad, like he was kinda dumb but he knew he would die and because he killed him his brother died alone. I feel so bad for Fredo.
I like Fredo, because he actually is a pretty sad, realistic and magnificent character. He would be second or third spot, if I were to make a list. I don't know. I usually do not like his type, but somehow, I love Fredo...
My one respect for him is he almost killed Kay. Also rest in peace John Cazale.
" I'm Moe Greene! I made my bones when you were going out with cheerleaders ".
I got a business to run
Smart...calculated...no nonsense...should have stayed loyal..
Sweet..innocent..gorgeous... I just liked looking at her lol
I think he was the coolest Godfather
Should be under the top 5
Hot headed.like his father..ruthless like Michael..charming like vito...he had a little of everyone..his temper like his dads would have been his downfall
Awesome caracter...would have loved for him to stick around longer...
