Best Characters In Supernatural

Who is the best Character in the TV program Supernatural?

The Top Ten

1 Dean Winchester Dean Winchester is a fictional character and one of the two protagonists of the American drama television series Supernatural.

Dean is the most loyal of them all. Sometimes he stumbles and he does make mistakes (hey he's human!) but through it all not only does he stay true to his self and his values, but also to his family. He will be the one, if everyone else has turned their back on you, to stay by your side and always be there fighting in your corner. Just don't betray him though, then he gets all mad and huffy if you do (soo sexy :p)

I truly love Dean. I may be really crazy but I love the Characters that are vulnerable. Dean is, even though his father was really bad and treated him like he was nothing still determined to save the world and make it a better place. And that is amazing

Dean Winchester is iconic. He's a Hero without Superhero powers but still stands toe to toe with powerful beings and tries to sass his way out of trouble when his trusted shotgun won't work. He doesn't believe in his own worth but never gives up fighting for what he believes in or for those he believes are worth more than himself, sometimes he's not even a nice guy other times he's downright loveable, he is a complex character with shades of dark and light and more inner demons to fight than external ones. On top of all that he's played by one of the most talented and underrated actors on T.V..

This guy right here has ruined my life with his perfect little smile and fanfiction green eyes. As well as his personality. He tries to act so tough, uses sarcasm as a defense mechanism, and loathes himself more than anything but tries to hide behind this narcissistic front. He's a caregiver, taking care of those he loves, especially Sam. He loves Sam more than anything, he would do anything to have his kid brother with him no matter what. I mean, the guy went to hell to bring Sam back to life. He loves pie, his precious Impala, and *coughs* Cas. I have never found someone I can relate to as much as I relate to Dean Winchester.

2 Castiel Castiel is a fictional character portrayed by Misha Collins on the CW Television Network's American television series Supernatural.

He is the purest of them all. He will always try his best to do right. If he does make mistakes or does something wrong, he makes up for them 10 fold. He will never intentionally hurt the ones he holds dear. Again he does make mistakes, but he makes up for them more then all else in the show has ever done for their mistakes.

Castiel, my wonderful baby, must be protected at all times. He's too innocent and pure for this world. Yeah, he may have been an angel of the lord, molotoved his brother the archangel Michael, and was the vessel for Lucifer this past season. But gosh, his innocent baby blues and the little head tilt he does when he's confused is just so cute. He doesn't understand pop culture very well and tends to take figurative language and expressions too seriously. He's too innocent and has only experienced emotions since he fell to help the Winchester brothers. He truly wants to help. I mean he rebelled against his family and lost his grace all for Dean. He's just a cinnamon roll too good for this world.

Castiel is the most interesting character in my opinion as you don't know what he is gonna be like next. He is also the strongest and the weakest character at the same time, as he always swayed by his duty to heaven and his emotions when it comes to the Winchester. I would love to see Castiel all the way til the show finale because he is awesome! I think he doesn't get enough appreciation by the brothers though. It's like he's been taken for granted, and when he did something not according to the Winchester, he gets punished. I've been watching this show from start, and I think it's a great show but it's kinda sortof same old kind of thing later on, until Castiel shows up. He just lights the room the very minute he walks into the scene. I like Castiel most, and Misha is awesome as an acter and as a person. No one could play Castiel better than Misha because I've already admired his work and commitment to the society.

Cas is really interesting. He has such a great story with starting as a obeying soldier and ending as a person with his own free will. Cas is really great

3 Sam Winchester Samuel "Sam" Winchester is a fictional character and one of the two protagonists of the American drama television series Supernatural along with his older brother Dean.

I love Sam for his optimism. His own father wanted him to die but he still loves his father and he still believes that he and other people that aren't 'normal' can live normal. And that is great. He never gives up even when Dean sees no way out, he keeps fighting.

He's actually a really underrated character, for some reason, even though he shares a lead with dean. maybe its because people ship destiel and make it the main focus when watching the show.

I mean come on, he's empathetic, a great hunter and not to mention the badass demon blood / lucifer scenarios. the man's seen his brother die over 100 times, been to hell, been tortured by lucifer, had most of the people he's ever loved killed, never had a good mother or father figure from birth, given demon blood as a baby, threw himself into the cage with lucifer, was manipulated into releasing lucifer and still remains a good person.


Sam is very brave and caring and selfless, he's always trying to do best thing. He loses everyone he loves, his mum dies before he got to know her, his father hates him for wanting to be normal and he thinks that his brother thinks he is such a disappointment. He deserves so much more attention than he gets from fans. He went through so much, he dies, he was put in a cage, he lost his love (several times), his brother turned his back on him, his mother leaves (AGAIN), his friends die. He is left all alone in the world and he is still trying to do his best to save this world that gave him everything but rest and long - term happiness. He is a true hero in this show and everyone should at least respect him, I mean he was tortured, by Lucifer, in his head and still tried to save lives. Just a friendly reminder, Sam Winchester would give his life for you even though he doesn't know who you are

well. He's hot. Loved his character early on in the show. Hated him in the middle seasons. (sorry but he was a whinny, miserable, child who couldn't stay true to his self or his brother for anything. bros before ho's dude and you chose a ho over your brother too many times) but he does get back some of my love and respect through that later seasons. I guess his character was just one that has to learn from his mistakes (over and over again) in order to be a better person that actually deserves Dean as a brother.

4 Bobby Singer

From the end of the first season Bobby was there. He kept "his boys" in line even before John was dead. He taught them more, gave them more, and loved them more than any other character on the show. Bobby was also very REAL, he lived in the middle of nowhere, ran a scrapyard, and had a filthy house of a bachelor. The only things you could be sure of in Bobby's house were he was better stocked than a bar with beer and whiskey, he had a several open books in multiple languages at any given time, and he was in charge of answering at least half a dozen phone lines which were coded with names such as "FBI". All spn fans love Bobby, and hate he was killed off, but he has been in at least one episode every season, I hope they bring him back, at least once in season 12.

Bobby was an amazing character. He was the father the boys needed when theirs was off hunting and too busy seeking revenge. He has hilarious lines and the kind of personality that really does remind you of your drunk uncle. He always helped the boys when they needed it, even when Crowley had his soul. He was the Winchesters true fatherly figure, John may have died for them but Bobby lived for them.

I'm only at season 5 so far and I think I've heard that he dies at some point and I'm so scared for him whenever he's in an episode. I'm always kind of happy that he's there because I love him so much but at the same time I'm terrified for him. He's the best character by far for me because he's funny and he cares so much about him.

Bobby was the glue that kept the Winchester boys alive and saving the world. So sad to see him go. I hope Castiel brings him back from heaven, at least for another 20 years and then he can go back and hand out with Rufus.

5 Crowley

I really like Crowley. He is a great Character because you can never know what he's going to do next. But we can understand his motivations and motives and he shows us that the world isn't just black and white. He is really cool and an amazing villain/hero.

Come on. Who wouldn't agree that Crowley is one of the best characters in the show? The way his character developed was amazing. Crowley has changed dramatically from when he first came into the show, but at the same time he has remained himself. The same old lovable sense of humour, one liners, the wittiness. Ever since he injected human blood we've seen the more human side of the King of Hell. He loves Dean Winchester, he grew up with mummy issues (poor baby), but he knows how to get down and dirty when he needs to. What's not to love?

The King Of the Crossroads UPGRADED To the KING OF HELL! Crowley is a character he's funny, charming, Good Looking, Narcissist, Mark A Sheppard play's Crowley so damn well, I prefer Crowley to Sam Winchester for character value, Crowley is A king of one liners also, It's obvious that sometimes he has feeling's. Crowley is one of the best characters to ever be introduced into Supernatural, I almost stopped watching the series until Crowley came in Season 5. Love his character, "hello boys"

Crowley is way underrated, in my opinion. He's opportunistic, powerful, witty, manipulative, even funny at times, so what more could you look for in a villain? No one screws the boys like he does and with that much suave and charm. He's a great King of Hell and if you go through his quotes you really see how great this character is developed. Hope he stays around for a little longer, wouldn't be the same without our king!

6 Gabriel

Gabriel is (with Cas of course) my favourite angel. He is understandable and he is the only angel besides Cas that really does what God wanted all Angel's to do: love humanity. He is on our side always and he died for us, which was one of the saddest scenes for me. But he is also really funny and cool and even though he killed Dean like 103 times we still love him.

Okay, besides Castiel, Gabriel is my favorite character from the show. It's just so sad that he was in only 5 episodes. At first he was depicted as this witty and somewhat maniacal trickster. But later on, we get to know his true side. Yes, he's still witty and has a killer sense of humor, but he was an archangel that just wanted to escape his family's fighting. He wanted peace, but was too afraid to intervene. And seeing his own brother, Lucifer, kill him just broke my heart. He was adorable, had a thing for sweets, and was just plain lovable. I mean, he became a fan favorite in the first episodes he appeared in! I hope he comes back in later seasons. I really miss him.

Gabriel was only in four episodes of supernatural, but quickly became many people's favorite character (me included). Not only is he witty, adorable and has a brilliant sense of humor (that I think compensates for him killing people for fun) but he is also quite a deep character. Like Sam, he only wanted to get away from his family. Again, like Sam, he was forced back into that mess. I really hope that he is back for good this time, but I doubt it.

Yes, he was only alive for five episodes but hey, those episodes rocked! I cried when I saw him die. Would he go back to heaven being an angel and all?
And lets not forget the whole he is Loki thing.
So he is the head angel and God of mischief? Nice! I really wish he would come back, but alas, wishful thinking. He is an honorary member of team free will.
Long live the trickster! #Gabriel #Loki

7 Lucifer

Lucifer is all together a unique character. It is interesting to see his development from when he is first out of the cage up to Sam's hallucinations. In all sense Lucifer does not believe himself to be evil and believes that humans are the evil that was thrown upon the world. When he was first created he showed sympathy towards Sam and was patient with Sam and you understand that he wants to prove himself correct to his father. You understand that he wants to up show his brother and get back the dignity that was torn from him. When he is shown in the hallucinations you realize that he is utterly pissed because he thought Sam would have been the way for that to happen, but in reality it wasn't so he took it out on Sam in the cage. Lucifer by this point was not only betrayed by his Father and his Brother, but Sam in a way as well. He is my favorite character, because there is more to him than just plain evil.

My dear Luci is so adorable and cute. Yes, I just called the devil cute and gave him a nickname. I mean he was vanished from heaven just because he wouldn't love the humans more than he loved his own father. He didn't want to love something more than he loved God. You know this is a weird show when you despise 90% of the angels and have more sympathy and love for Satan. I mean the guy is downright lovable. Especially since he's played by Mark Pellegrino, who by the way is an amazing actor. Lucifer is misunderstood and all he ever wanted was to get revenge for something he simply saw wrong. I just feel really sad because Mark won't be playing Luci next season. But still, I'm team Lucifer, God can go shove a stick up his you-know-what for abandoning his children.

He's a brilliant character, mark pellegrino does an awesome job! Especially as he doesn't actually appear very much, he is my favourite

Uhh they brought the devil too life! How many shows do that? Not to mention he's hilarious in sams hallucinations

8 Jack Kline


Jack has been a great addition to Supernatural! It’s great to have that breath of childlike innocence in a show where almost everyone has done horrible things along the lines of murder and torture.

9 Ash

Ash is the funniest dude out there. I missed his raw laid back attitude and down-right unbeatable sense of humor.
-not to mention his hair...
"All business up front, party in the back"
Here's to Ash, RIP

Ash was a great character. I was sad when he died.

Ash's heaven is the best too. he literally gives no cares.

10 Death

Death is such n interesting Character! Even though he didn't show up that often, every time he does he is so amazing. He really is a great mixture if freaking me out and making me laugh. Death is so amazing and I was really surprised when he gave Dean his ring. I really miss Death and we definitely need him back.

If I could had returned few things to habits or keeping habits if I would had been GOD THE FATHER for real if I would had let the coke inventor for example live again and ask him to make coke again even if it would had to require help from others as well and if I would have wanted to still taste potato chips and listen to MICHAEL JACKSON as well as THE ROLLING STONES, ELVIS PRESLEY, QUEEN, LED ZEPPELIN and even EMINEM. Would you find me to be awesome god if I sometimes liked potato chips and coke even pepsi and had a taste for life so to speak.

If I was GOD THE FATHER myself I would had spared sweden at least from destruction because I like the potato chips, coke, pepsi, incest hentai mangas, spagetti and some music and even taking long showers for example. If I were GOD THE FATHER himself in human body I would had I said I liked little about the earth like tasting potato chips and for example drinking coke and pepsi and being awake all night and listen music like THE ROLLING STONES, MICHAEL JACKSON, ELVIS PRESLEY, QUEEN, LED ZEPPELIN and EMINEM for example. About infinite power would you find it amazing if that would been far higher than 10000000000 trillion supernovas put together if GOD THE FATHERs power was that high and higher if he could start over 3 million natural disasters all over the world at exactly the same time and continue for 3 to 6 days if just by his declaration it could happen if by declaration I could mean for I am the lord your god or for I an your lord THE FATHER.

Not only is he actually sensible and kind, but he shows regret for the things he has done. He connects to the human emotions when teaching Dean what it's like to be him, and he saved a whole city because he loved the pizza they have. He's incredible and by far the best horseman.

The Contenders

11 Charlie Bradbury

I love Charlie because she always gave us hope. She loved the Winchesters and the Winchesters still love her. She was the best female character in her time and I and many other people miss her. Charlie never was mad at anyone. At least, the real Charlie. She always forgave people, even when Dean almost killed her. Also, she's a great role model for young girls that are lesbian or young boys that are gay to just love and accept themselves. She is really great and I miss her so much.

She was amazing. Smart, intelligent and most of all... loyal. Her love for Sam and Dean was admirable, but unfortunately that's what for her killed. Was super mad that they killed her off. She was really overlooked and underrated. The Winchesters loved her too. She deserved better. I loved her sense of humour and her curiosity and her adventurous spirit.

Charlie is what every woman aspires to be-headstrong, independent, brave and intelligent. Plus, she's not afraid to show her geeky side. She's empowering, brave, kick ass, and a hero.

Okay, Charlie doesn't have to come back, but there should still be an episode where the Winchesters get to go to Oz so we can see her again. Charlie was so relatable.

12 Jo Harvelle

I love Jo. She was the first 'real' female Character that stayed for a long time and not just for one episode and didn't try to kill the boys. She always helped them, even after she found out their father killed her father and after Possesed! Sam almost killed her. U really cried when she died and I really miss her. Jo was really amazing and from her first appearance till the last she was just great.

Jo harvelle and Ellen. should never had died, it's season 13 now and I'm literally dieing for them to come back seeing a lot of other characters from a long time ago have returned. Bobby,Kevin, Missouri, and Mary. BRING BACK THESE LADIES! The sad thing about this is we don't know where they are at. They weren't in heaven with pamela which means...I don't want to think about that. Just bring them back we need more females in this show anyway

When I saw Jo and Ellen's death, I was literally devastated. I actually was really attached to their characters and I think Jo had a really strong and great personality. I also shipped her and dean!

I think that Jo Harvelle is a strong independent woman that should not have died. I also wished that she and Dean got together.

13 Chuck Shurley

Chuck was amazing, in Season 11 Episode 20 turns out to be God, The oldest and most powerful being in Existence.

Chuck was amazing! Miss him so much

Chuck was awesome. Miss him very much

I think Chuck is actually God

14 Ellen Harvelle
15 Bela Talbot

Bella was amazing, she got what she wanted. She was smart and slightly manipulate. It kills me that Sam and Dean never knew why she made that deal. She was 14 and trying to get it out of a bad situation. They just look at her like the thief who kept getting the better of them. She knew what was going on and she became a thief, but she is still awesome. I don't get how anyone could not like her. it is so depressing that she went to hell for a mistake she made to get out of a horrible situation WHEN SHE WAS 14. Dean made the same mistake in his mid twenties. They think that she made a cross rode deal to get money. It is one of the most depressing stories in the show( I think Adams is worse) because it ends in a good person going to hell. My sister wants her to come back as a demon, but I think that would probably be just as depressing. She is really awesome, and I can't believe some people like someone like Naomi more than her.

Even though a lot of people hated Bela, I thought she was so bad ass and I would do whatever it takes to get her way. I hope she comes back as a demon.

She was something good happened, killing her out of the show was a mistake. Bring character like her back to the show.

I loved her she is a badass, second best female character after Meg. I don't get why she is so underrated

16 Claire Novak

I ABSOLUTELY Love this character, she has a great relationship with the guys. Especially Dean and Cass, Cass feels responsible for her and I can see why. He took her whole life away from her. When he left her life fell apart, he stole her dad from her and then her mom became obsessed on finding him which lead to her downfall too. Then Claire's grandma died leaving her completely alone and she became a troubled teen. But with a little help from Cass and Dean she matured and became a great young adult hunter. She tried to save her mom and technically saved Cass's
life and then Dean and her had some issues but they all resolved themselves and now they are as close as ever. Dean even is like a father figure to her just like he was with Ben. I mean Claire survived being a werewolf and the cure. And she is a hunter! And has the best mom ever JODY MILLS! And then there's her adopted Sis Alex. It's the life Claire needed... and it's the one she deserves. She may have lost her mother and ...more

Claire should get more than just 0% She's an amazing character that's been through so much! Her father was possessed by an angel and left her and her mom. Then she finally gets to see him again but it's short lived...then her mom left to go find him making her a troubled teen who turns out all right after some help of Cass and the winchesters! I mean she was a werewolf! Not only fought off the urge to eat, she was strong enough to be cured making her the first cured werewolf! Now she's a hunter on her own! She's come pretty far for just a 0%

Claire Novak deserves a lot of more love than she is getting she is a strong-willed girl who's had a troubled life since she first appeared shes come so far and she is a HUNTER! She survived being a werewolf and the cure! I don't know a lot of hunters who could do that

Claire Novak is the most daring girl and she deserves to be more liked.

17 Meg Masters

I will sell my soul for her to come back for the final season. I want her and Cas to bang until the cows come home. Then we can give Jess back to Sam and Lisa or Jo back to Dean.

I loved her relationship with Cas. It was funny and unexpected. I always thought she would be either with Sam or no one at all but the show runners surprised us.

Witty, dangerous and playful. A demon messing with the Winchester's angel... How can it get any better than that? A female character surviving in Supernatural from seasons one to eight!

One of the most fun characters the show has. She's psycho and crazy which makes you want them to kill her but at the same time you want her to appear in every episode.

18 Jody Mills

Jody is that kind of Character you want to gave as a mom. You can have the best mom ever, you still would live her to be your mom. She is a badass, one of the last female Xhsracters standing and a really great mother. What us also do great about her is that even when her husband and son got killed she still took in four girls and still started a new live. She didn't break down. Even when one of the people she saved was a monster, she didn't try to kill her. She saved her. Jody is so strong and so amazing.

Beautiful woman. I love how she took in the girl... what's her name... and also Claire Novak. She's such a mother figure.

Yes! One of the last girls still alive! Jody is a strong character who has been threw so much. I love her!

What how is she so low on the list she's like the best

19 Rowena

I really love Rowena. She is a great Character and you never know what she's going to do. She is the most powerful witch in the world and she is really amazing. I fell in love with her the moment I first saw her on the screen. Rowena is amazing. Even though her son hated her and tried to kill her, in the end she still loved him. And *Spoiler* she is so amazing as the Queen of Hell!

She is the best! She is over than 300 years old and she hasn't loved anything ever!
''I don't,will not and have not love anything ever-Rowena McLeod''

The most powerful witch...mother of the king of hell and so Malicious...she deserves ALL

Rowena is absolutely amazing!

20 John Winchester

I get why he isn't number 1, but why is he so low? He gets so much hate for what he did, even though it wasn't THAT bad as what it could have been. Sam and Dean even SAY THAT in an episode. I mean think about it: He was abandoned by his dad at a young age, he served in Vietnam, he lost his wife in a drastic and horrendous way, he learns of the dangers out there and is terrified for his boys, learns that Sam may actually become something they hunt, and must deal with the fact that he can't introduce them to Adam because there's still a chance of Adam not knowing of the Supernatural world, unlike Sam and Dean. There's actually a point where he tells the boys that he almost died after losing Mary, and that he wouldn't be able to handle losing one or both of them, uses a bullet from the Colt to save his boys, and he SELLS HIS SOUL to save Dean, and right before he does, Sam accuses him of wanting revenge on Mary more than saving Dean, which was the exact opposite of why he was going to ...more

John is a Cool Character, and even if He wasnt the best father, he just wanted the best for Sam and Dean!

Yes the best

Great character!

21 Ruby

Ruby gave life to Sams fears an took advantage of it to make evil spead. She is a strong female cartor. What I appreciate from Genvieve put evil in Rush.

Am I the only oe who hated Ruby? I love Gen though

I really trusted Ruby. :( -Luna

22 Anna Milton

My favorite character of all time, for Supernatural or anything else. She's silk and steel, empathy and strategy, with such huge love for humanity and free will that she gave up everything and risked everything just to get a tiny taste of it herself. The disgraced general, Castiel's fallen friend, Mr. and Mrs. Milton's miracle child. A character full of appreciation for every single part of the human experience, good and bad, an angel who was bitter and wanted more and wanted to be human, a character who was good and compassionate and selfish and strong-willed and intelligent and brave, who believed in herself if nothing else and fought for herself and fought for the world she fell in love with, who never gave up and never wavered, who reached out to Dean to try to help him forgive himself when he was hurting and kissed him to remind him to love himself because others loved him, who gave him a bold smile and took him to bed to give them both a good experience because she was a badass ...more

She should return... I think she's the greatest woman in supernatural... If I were an angel like her, I would kill Sam, too... It's her job - protect the world and Sam is a BIG threat... So, why do many people hate and judge her so much?

23 Balthazar

I loved his character, he was just sarcastic, even cynical, in a very funny way.

Why was Balthazar not on the list. Damn
He is brilliant

He is absolutely brilliant! He deserves to be in the top 10.

Love him and the actor, he should be in the first ten

24 Adam Milligan

Best character 10/10. Poor boy just wants to see his Mother again.

My poor baby. Still in the cage. ;-;

Poor Adam...still in the Cage...with Michael
