The Contenders: Page 3

41 Isabelle Lightwood - The Mortal Instruments Isabelle Lightwood - The Mortal Instruments

ISABELLE LIGHTWOOD ALL THE WAY! Absolute badass. She's a woman who is aware of all her weaknesses and even so, a woman who does everything to overcome them. IZZY is an absolute perfection for me.

Isabelle is the greatest, most inspirational female character I've come across. Strong and independent, so beautifully fierce and yet, so beautifully human. Not once she whined or ranted, not once she disappointed me.

This girl is amazing. So pure at heart that it repels the dirt off her clothes.

And gosh, you gotta love her cooking. Even her pasta can be more fateful than being drowned in a washing machine.

Love Izzy. So strong

42 Skulduggery Pleasant - Skulduggery Pleasant

The wise-cracks, the sarcasm, the magic.
A detective with a twist. (A really dark one at that.)

Let's not forget the impeccable dress sense, THE HAT and the 1954 Bentley R-Type Continental.

The coolest guy here, for sure.

Screw Tris Prior, Harry Potter, Katniss Everdeen and all the other OVERRATED characters. Skulduggery Pleasant is the BEST character someone ever made. (Is worshipping Derek Landy a religion? )

Whoever didn't vote him has got big ears


43 Magnus Bane - The Mortal Instruments Magnus Bane - The Mortal Instruments

How can you hate Magnus Bane?! He leaves GLITTER everywhere he goes! And his sarcasm and love for Alec are never enough.

Who need fifty shades of gray when we have fifty shades of Magnus Bane

Magnus bane is a lot of things desperate, cruel, dumb, and sarcastic. But he is not bad.

I just love Magnus Bane.

44 Alec Lightwood - The Mortal Instruments Alec Lightwood - The Mortal Instruments

Alec is amazing. He's protective, loyal, snarky, and so overlooked. I know exactly what it's like to be constantly overshadowed, by your best friend no less, so I really relate to him. Plus, he's hot, clever and an awesome fighter! Team Alec all the way!

Alec is like the perfect friend. He is protective, funny, and sassy when you least expect it.

He can be stubborn at times, but no one can hate his relationship with Magnus Bane. Try to deny it, but they are goals.

I love Alec! He is such a well developed and amazing character. he is also pretty relatable.

I LOVE Cinder's personality. Everything she says makes me smile.

Favorite character of all time- and second is Cress.

A sarcastic sassy cyborg? What is there not to love

47 June Iparis - Legend

June is so strong and independent, plus she's incredibly intelligent and just emotional enough to be relatable. Why has no one voted for her /cries

I love June so much. She is a strong capable young women with determination.

48 Day Wing - Legend

Just like want is said under June's comments, days goes through so much losing almost all his family. Watching them get shot in front of him. His little brother being gone and having to search for him. Lets not forget him falling deeply for June. So many twist and wrong turns come his way but DAY IS THE BIGGEST FIGHTER!

49 Firestar - Warriors Firestar - Warriors Firestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. He's the leader of ThunderClan after Bluestar. He's mates with Sandstorm and has 2 kits: Squirrelflight and Leafpool. He was formerly a kittypet

Firestar is brave and noble and fights for what's right!

Firestar is brave and strong, he would do anything to protect any of the Clans!

Firestar is loyal, brave, and would do anything for his clan

He is such a great role model always looks beyond the bonderies, he died 8 times to help cats, some weren't even from his own clan

50 Remus Lupin - Harry Potter Remus Lupin - Harry Potter

He is one of the most believable characters. He has no faith in himself, but all the faith he could possibly have in anyone else. He trusted Snape when no one else did, and Snape is also one of my favorite characters. No Harry Potter fan could dislike him. He's just such a complex and believable character.

So complex but very relatable. A very good person at heart who isn't always as good as he could be but still. So real, loyal and brave

Remus is such a fatherly figure. It's nearly impossible not to love him and root for him at all times.

He's selfless and brave. One of my favorites.

51 Molly Weasley - Harry Potter

Molly is a pretty amazing mother, to be honest.

52 Samantha Kingston - Before I Fall
53 Lyra Belacqua - Northern Lights / The Golden Compass Lyra Belacqua - Northern Lights / The Golden Compass Lyra Belacqua, also known as Lyra Silvertongue, is the heroine of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy.

She's brave and rides on a polar bear - Starsparks

Sacre Blu! What the Hell is Hermione doing ahead of Lyra. - jezza0

54 Thalia Grace - Percy Jackson & the Olympians

I love this girl from my favorite book in the first series. You would have to be struck by lightning to not love her

How can you not love her she is very brave, strong and man that girl can fight. The only flaw with her is that she is Jason's brother.

I feel sorry for her that her she missed her friend annabeth and Luke is bad.

She is amazing.

55 Halt - Ranger's Apprentice

Snarky, benevolent, clever and the perfect mentor. Why is he ranked so low?

Perfect character

Halts Awesome.Why is he raked so low.He's like the Robin hood of RA

Love Haltv

56 Todd Hewitt - Chaos Walking Series

I love these books, and all the characters...

Love this character. Has a lot of depth.

57 Neville Longbottom - Harry Potter Neville Longbottom - Harry Potter

He's my favorite underdog of all time.

Despite not being famous, the guy stands by truth and justice for his parents, despite all the teasing, despite his dissapointed grandmother, he fights at the ministry, he chops voldemorts snake in two, and before now neville has not on this list, is impossibly stupid not to do.

58 Minho - The Maze Runner

Sass queen. That's the better name for Minho. Who can ever hate him, when he's over here, hands on hips, sassing Alby away?!

Minho- noun- the sassiest sass king with the most fabulous hair of perfection

How is Edward Cullen above Minho? He's sassy, funny, and full of spirit!

How do you not love this guy? He is so funny

59 Cassie Sullivan - The Fifth Wave

She is sassy, sarcastic and comes up with some of the best lines - honestly, all the books in this series are unbelievably quotable. It is an action packed plot with relatable and detailed characters and all of this is brought to life with the incredible metaphors and stylistic writing techniques Yancey effortlessly uses. You'll be me...

This is so off cassie legit took down a whole army to save her brother

"I am the one not running, not staying, but facing. Because if I am the last one, then I am humanity. And if this is humanity's last war, then I am the battlefield."
��"Cassie Sullivan

One of the bravest female book characters I have ever met.

60 Madeline Whittier - Everything, Everything

Self-conscious but beautiful. I love her.
