Best Code Geass Characters


The Top Ten

1 Lelouch Lamperouge Lelouch Lamperouge Lelouch Lamperouge, whose real name is Lelouch vi Britannia, is the title character and protagonist of the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

Lelouch is my favourite character of all time. Even though I knew that lots of the things he did were wrong I couldn't help but root for him. You watch him develop from someone who wants revenge and to make the world better for his sister to someone who is willing to risk everything for the world and to make it a better place even though the world and the people who were on it did anything for him. Lelouch sacrificed so much but got nothing in return. I have never cried over anyone so much before I watched this show. He said some amazing quotes and he did some jaw dropping things. The one you think cares the least loves the most. Lelouch is unpredictable, spectacular, memorable, loving, selfless but he is undoubtedly flawed and he is undoubtedly my hero.

His development throughout the show could have me in tears or just a cluster of emotions. I fell in love with his character the moment I actually saw him, Lelouch is such an amazing character. Although I do consider him... "depressing" but not in a bad way - I don't really know how to describe it. It's like he lies and he loses a part of himself.

He is one of my favorite anime characters of al time and I find him incredibly interesting. He is intelligent and though he can be cruel he is kindhearted. He will do anything to reach his goal and just that makes me really invested in him. - ostmackan

I got pissed when he died and other people are celebrating

2 Suzaku Kururugi Suzaku Kururugi Suzaku Kururugi is a fictional character in the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

I know that he was against Lelouch but their friendship was never destroyed. He accepted Lelouch's wish and sacrificed the rest of his life making that wish to come true. He is Lelouch's first and last friend, as we all know.

He did a lot of questionable things. But after all that's happened to him, you can't really blame him.

Spinaku the most untrustworthy best friend in anime. Despite that I really liked his storyline. He was interesting. - girlcool

I loved Suzaku character development he started as a person always trying to do the right thing to wanting nothing but revenge on lelouch (SPOILERS) for the princess ufimia incident.

3 C.C. C.C. C.C. is the pseudonym of a fictional character in the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion anime series by Sunrise. C.C.'s real name is never shared with the audience, despite eventually being learned by protagonist Lelouch Lamperouge.

Her personality and her character development are gorgeous as well as her unique bond with Lelouch

She's gone through so much... But she still is more human than most people

Ship is official.

I can best empathize with C.C.
I feel bad for her and she has got so much hate in her endless life. She must have hate herself but in the nearly end of R2 we got to see how C.C has changed. She is more lika a human being now and I'm happy for her that she has found her happiness

4 Kallen Stadtfeld Kallen Stadtfeld Kallen Stadtfeld is a fictional character in the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

The one purely normal person, who manages to still be completely badass, often outshining those listed higher than her on this list, even though they have powers (Suzaku's physical abilities are a power in my opinion- dodging bullets).

How to be a badass.

Step 1: Be Kallen.

Hate on me all you want, but being badass does not make you a better character. Heck, if she wasn't badass, there would be NOTHING to make her a good character. She isn't even a strong female figure, just masquerading as one (her immaturity is unveiled when around Lelouch, C.C., Gino, etc.) In addition, superficial appearance doesn't act as a virtue. For example, a character may have good hair and eyes but a horrendous disposition.

I love my Kallen. She's just badass and would of stuck with Zero til the end.

5 Nunnally Lamperouge

As much as I loved Lelouche and C.C. for their badass actions, looks, and personalities, I adored Nunnally's sweet innocent existence that Lelouche had tried to protect. Despite her young age, her matureness is far more supreme than 99% of the people in the whole anime series.

6 Milly Ashford

Very cool character, always smiled and brought a little humor to the show. I wish she had a more prominent role than the comedic relief though

Who does not like Milly?

She's the one character that brings out a smile and laughter otta me when I watch code geass.. Thanks to her the show has comedy and liveliness.. I love her.. Madam president, you're the best.. :-* :-* :-*

7 Shirley Fenette Shirley Fenette Shirley Fenette is a fictional character in the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

Ehh... You can like her or think she's annoying. I'm indifferent. The problem is she takes the focus off of the narrative too often. There are too many scenes where something important is happening in the plot and then they cut to something that she's doing. It does disrupt the tone, and it's not really necessary. Those moments could have been omitted without losing any value. In fact, the story could've potentially gained a lot from it. The only real purpose she serves in the narrative is for Lelouch's character development. She obviously wasn't a priority in his life at any point in the series but having too erase her memory obviously had an impact on him. The same thing happened with her death. Although, even those moments of regret could have been written using other characters with a lot more substance. Honestly, it's all fanservice with no real depth going on here..

BEST GIRL RIGHT HERE! I will genuinely fight someone over this.

Plot wise she may not of fit in that well, but her personality was delightful and she was so adorable. - girlcool

She is so sweet and loves lelouch more than anything.. she forgave him every time and I think she is the most kind-hearted and human character

8 Rolo

My favourite character had always been changing as I watched the anime. It was always a competition between Lelouch and Suzaku. Well, that was what happened while I was watching R1.

When Rolo came into the series, I thought he was a cute kid and a nice younger brother - don't have any misunderstandings, it was what I thought before I found out that Rolo worked for the Britania. Before that, I thought that he would be a nice character and that I would like him. After that, I was proved wrong. I didn't just like him, I loved him!

His Geass ability was truly awesome, maybe even better than Lelouch's. And he received it while he was just six years old, and he was a pro at using it at that time too! "Ward of Absolute Suspension", WOW!

But do you love someone just because of their abilities? Do you? It's his personality which makes him my favourite, the deeds he did, the intentions he had, those are the things that matter, right?

All his life he had ...more - PlatinumTheHitgirl

Maybe the only scene in the whole show where I actually teared up a little was when Rolo died, dear god man the feels. Besides that he was a complete badass and was the one of the few people at the end (other than Jeremiah and Sayoko) who were still loyal to Lelouch

People don't understand that Rolo is actually the main character of this show. All this time... You know, dawg. He is the one who made the Zero Requiem happen in the first place, but you just don't know that, do you? No. Case closed.

I would place him at 6

9 Lloyd Asplund Lloyd Asplund Lloyd Asplund is a fictional character in the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

Lloyd is my favourite character, his carefree attitude and social awkwardness steals the scene

One of the funniest anime characters ever. A big scene stealer. - girlcool

I love his voice (sub and dub) and also his carefree attitude.

My absolute favorite character. He is a self proclaimed sociopath. That's what I love about him.

12 Euphemia li Britannia Euphemia li Britannia Euphemia li Britannia is a fictional character in the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

Euphemia I love you more then words

She deserved so much better...I shipped her and Suzaku so much. And she was the absoloute kindest character in the whole show aside from Lelouch. And the way she treated Nina warmed my heart.

Of course she was a little bit to idealistic but her intentions were real and came from the bottom of her heart. Yes, she was naive but also smart as she was the first person who realized Zeros true identity. She was so young, she had become a good and wise grown-up. Also she could break the geass before her death because of her love to Suzaku. She deserved a better destiny!

She is so cute and adorable, she deserved a better fate :c

She is so good and perfect!

Awesome character. - girlcool

She is gorgeous and witty. She truly cares about her men. To me, she is amazing

She was Lelouch's first serious enemy and also his sister. But you know throughout the show she had good intentions

14 Kaname Ōgi

Underrated character. - girlcool

15 Schneizel el Britannia

I don't see why he's so far down the list. He was after all the true "antagonist"(? ) Of the series. Cool, caring, calculating, realistic and a goddam genius. Probably the most underrated character ever.

The charming villain. - girlcool

The only character in the show who actually was at the same strategic level as lelouch (appart from maybe charles) so cold, precise and smart. And also so underrated. The perfect villain.

Cool, Kind and Ruthless at the same time.He is the master of tactics and strategy, only he had the potential to beat lelouch, but unfortunately lost to lelouchs geass power.

16 Gino Weinberg Gino Weinberg Gino Weinberg is a fictional character in the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

Funny character. - girlcool

I feel like the Knights of Round did not have enough screen time. Why is Gino my favourite character? He is easy-going, fun but at the same time serious and kind to fellow characters especially Anya and Suzaku.

Gino is a funny, nice but at the same time serious and an easy going character. I think that the Knights of Round did not get enough screen time as well as the others did.

17 Li Xingke

He is just...perfect

18 Rakshata Chawla

She is the mastermind behind the Guren Mk-II and is AWESOME. Besides she is so hot! And I love her carefree attitude.

21 Anya Alstreim Anya Alstreim Anya Alstreim is a fictional character in the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

Anya is a very funny character because of lack of common sense. No offense. Who would pilot a knightmare into a school to find a person and create an outrage that brought highly ranked officials to go to school?

Anya x Gino

22 Villetta Nu Villetta Nu Villetta Nu is a fictional character in the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.


Bad girl gone good. Plus hot

Made huge effort. Hot girl.

She is the best example for a change into a more tolerant person. I love these Japanese-Britannian couples who shows the power of love and the unnessesairyness of war, distrust und intolerance!

23 Clovis la Britannia

Lol no offense but he's just there in the anime for like 1 ep

24 Mao

Favorate geass

Such a fun villain. - girlcool

25 Leila Malcal Leila Malcal Leila Malcal is a fictional character in the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

She is one of the best characters in entire Code Geass universe. She is very intelligent, strong (though bit clumsy) and most of all a good character. It is difficult to find truly good characters (and that too at top levels of command) in Code Geass. She is highly underrated as many didn't watch Akito the Exiled. She deserves to be in top 10, even may be top 5

Interesting and lovely character. It is heartwarming to see how she cares for Akito.

26 Diethard Ried

Super underrated character. A scene stealer. - girlcool

Very interesting character to watch throughout the series. Has an interesting perspective.

Ino's long lost brother.

He's such an interesting character...he doesn't seem to have any motives except be entertained by the world.

27 Kaguya Sumeragi

Nina is the best character. By the way, It's Table-kun, not -chan.

37 Charles Di Britannia

The intimidating, sympathetic yet funny and corny villain. A big scene stealer. - girlcool

Crazy man with a crazy sex drive who would probably put all his children in the hunger games if he could. I like him

Strong lad, strong opinions. He is the ultimate bad guy!

My best boy
