Best Dark Knight Trilogy Characters

List of the favorite characters from Christopher Nolan's great Batman trilogy.

The Top Ten

1 Joker Joker The Joker is a fictional super villain created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940) published by DC Comics. Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, more.

Heath Ledger improvised so many of his scenes in The Dark Knight and they were all exceptionally AMAZING! Him and Nolan made the film THE GREATEST SUPERHERO FILM OF ALL TIME and perhaps one of the best movies ever made. We can only see this kind of performance and film only once every 10 or even 20 years and therefore we really really should appreciate THE DARK KNIGHT.

Heath truly was ahead of the curve with this one

Heath Ledger fitted so so perfectly as Joker in the Dark Knight Trilogy and after all his acting, he's proven all what an actor should be - versatile and beyond that - defining the character. The concept of the Joker is badass and defines the old phrase devilish laughter. What more of a villian do you want? - FieryKnightFloyd

Do I really need to say anything?

2 Bruce Wayne / Batman Bruce Wayne / Batman Bruce Wayne is a fictional character appearing in the American comic books published by DC Comics. He is a wealthy American playboy, philanthropist, and owner of Wayne Enterprises. After witnessing the murder of his parents Dr. Thomas Wayne and Martha Wayne as a child, Bruce swore vengeance against more.

No doubt Heath Ledger was the BEST VILLAIN to oppose ANY "Superhero" figure in ANY production to Date. But then again Jack Nicholson was very good for the "type" of character the writing shot for. As was Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face and (yes) Jim Carrey as the Riddler... All "silly" characters... But purposely silly.
The list of Actors portraying "The Batman" is long... Never written to be "clumsy" or "foolish" - NONE even close to Christian Bale...
(EXCEPT for the "disguised voice" which made me cringe... You would think that GENIUS Lucius Fox, who had so many great toys, could have come up with some "band-aid" looking thingie over the larynx to alter the voice or something)
Who was the WORST BATMAN?

Batman is Batman after all. He defined it. He's a pure genius and he's a mastermind. He does things, he thinks things, he wins things and isn't bother about getting any credit for the things he does. That's how a true badass is. I love the movie very much and my username is also based on The Dark Knight - FieryKnightFloyd

As far as I'm concerned there has never been or ever will be another actor who can portray batman better than Christian Bale period!

Best of all

3 Harvey Dent Harvey Dent Two-Face/Harvey Dent is a fictional villain from DC Comics. Harvey Dent was one of Gotham's most trusted citizens until he had acid poured on his face making him go insane and become a criminal by the name Two-Face. In film, he has been portrayed by Billy Dee Williams in Batman, Tommy Lee Jones in Batman more.

Best villain from the DC universe for his psychological torment and the great schizophrenic struggle endured by his own duality and the conundrum of his existence. By far the deepest and best designed villain as well due to the scarred visage playing a dynamic role in his elegant and handsome side being a clever camouflage to his grisly and deadly side. Also, a powerhouse of a character due to the epitome of the madman within, a white knight who turned to a wicked persona worse than those he locked up, and the pure definition of justice with the toss of a coin... Fair, and without a shred of emotion. Best hands down.

I think harvey dent or two face has the best charectisation in movie his man of politics and his a hero then he become a devil he shows that there is not good or bad there is only conditiones at end and his idealism at first then he became a nihilism and jokers ace in the hole he crush our emotions in movie

He's more terrifying than the devil in the Exorcist. - FieryKnightFloyd

He scares me even more than the joker

4 Bane Bane Bane is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

There is no villain that can be cool and calm and be so evil at the same time. Awesome acting done by Tom Hardy, and his mask ( the voice and the look) suits the character perfectly

The best parts of Bane in the Dark Knight Trilogy is when he snaps people's necks. It was disturbing, but awesome!

Cool ass war lord

He has got a nice voice

5 Alfred Pennyworth Alfred Pennyworth Alfred Thaddeus Crane Pennyworth is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, most commonly in association with Batman.

LOL, the picture is of the new Alfred. No one beats Michael Caine - AKASHPAWAR

Alfred is one of the few funny characters and also one of the few that has been in all three movies.

So loyal and inspirational, he should be higher on this list.

Alfred is good, but this picture is from BvS not the dark knight

6 Jim Gordon Jim Gordon James Beck Gordon is an American musician and songwriter. Gordon was a popular session drummer in the late 1960s and 1970s and was the drummer in the blues rock supergroup Derek and the Dominos.

Gordon helps mediate these films; instead of a campy superhero film, he gives the films elements of neo-noir and detective. Above all, his monologue in The Dark Knight truly made the film.

He sure acted nice, good old Oldman! - HezarioSeth

Goddamit gary oldman was good

7 Selina Kyle

I do not really like Anne Hathaway but in this paper it looked sexy

Eh, I didn't like her portrayal of Catwoman, I prefer Michelle Phieffer's, Hathaway's was just too dull and lifeless

8 Dr. Jonathan Crane / Scarecrow

Refreshingly sadistic. Additionally, he was in all of the films.

9 Ra's al Ghul Ra's al Ghul Ra's al Ghul is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

Liam Neeson! Gotta be number one on any list. Just say his first name, it's awesome. You can;t help but say it in an Irish accent. Liam! - LukeDaDuke2

10 Lucius Fox

Every character played by Morgan Freeman is awesome

He's black and awesome enough said

Morgan Freeman is better than the scarecrow... Enough said.

Help this guy topple Scarecrew. please.

The Contenders

11 John Blake

I really liked him. He was a great new character, his acting was decent(it was better on inception) and he was a good supporting character. He was revealed at the end to be called robin, and. It would have been great to see a new nolan batman film with robin. Just saying

12 Sal Moroni

Classic criminal played a perfect role as tertiary antagonist in the dark knight. - dominij

If Sal Moroni isn't dead in 1 hour, I'll blow up a hospital

Don't remember this guy.

13 Rachel Dawes

Okay she should've like number six

Liked katie holmes bunches

14 Scarecrow Scarecrow The Scarecrow is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.
15 Carmine Falcone

Carmine was the first villian in the films, before Scarecrow and before Ra's Al Guhl. Made the movie feel like a gangster movie at times, which made it feel more real. Batman Begins was the best of the trilogy, and Falcone, more than Scarecrow, more than Ra's, was the Brut force behind the crime! - CaptainAmerica2000

17 Gambol
18 The Chechen
19 Pencil Trick Thug
20 Talia al Ghul Talia al Ghul Talia al Ghul is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with Batman.

Excellent how Christopher Nolan managed to keep Talia being in the final instalment under wraps. It was never advertised in the trailors, & even though its common knowledge that Ra's had a daughter, while watching the movie, her being in it, was still kept under wraps. Bravo to Christopher Nolan!

The twist was unexpected but a little off in timing

21 Barsad
22 Mayor Anthony Garcia
23 Miranda Tate

She was the same as Talia al Ghul! She can't have two spots on the same list!
