Best Degrassi Characters


The Top Ten

1 Spinner Mason Spinner Mason

Even though he made bad decisions he was there for all of his friends

Classic. Simple as that.

An icon who has developed so much!

That glow up!

2 Adam Torres Adam Torres

Adam taught all audiences an important story line and even though the main aspect of the character that degrassi brang out he was also kind, helping Claire with her cancer was one thing, he saw the good in people and always managed to put on a smile. Even his death brought out an important story line, texting and driving, teaching teenagers all over the world not to text and drive. Adam Torres death was heartbreaking and we'll never say goodbye to Adam Torres. - thereadingthief

Hated it when he died

He really brought joy to the other students

Adam is really cute n the only guy that doesn't think he's a chick magnet

3 Eli Goldsworthy Eli Goldsworthy

Eli is the hottest best too my dream guy

He's sooo charming

He's just the best, he had the best character development, he's strong, he had to deal with a lot of problems, he fights for his friend, he's caring and had the best love story on the show

His personal character storyline was the best. Not to mention the accuracy of his journey through finding out about his bipolar disorder.

4 Holly J. Sinclair Holly J. Sinclair

Icon Queen of Degrassi

Love her so much!

Holly J was the best! Most entertaining character and so well played by wonderful Charlotte Arnold! She was one of the only reasons I watched Degrassi! Love Holly J!

HollyJ is the BEST Degrassi character.
I don't think any other character has pulled off transitioning from a bitchy snob to a great person.

5 Jimmy Brooks Jimmy Brooks

DRIZZY is the best, how can anyone not agree that jimmy brooks was awesome and he still got all the chicks in the wheel chair love jimmy - terren65

Jimmy is the best

Name drake rapper my faviorte. Degrassi character so is pagie

They see me rollin in my wheelchair ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ

6 Sav Bhandari Sav Bhandari

Sav is the best!
Definitely the best character on the show!

7 Campbell Saunders Campbell Saunders

Was around for the shortest amount of time, yet made the biggest impression.

He is so adorable and innocent. He has a cute puppy dog eyed face. His shyness and gentleman-like qualities is what makes him to die for.

He's so lovable and sweet. He was around for a small amount of time, but left the biggest impression on degrassi. They need to bring him back:(

*ahem* and why isn't this adorable baby face puppy number one?

8 Manny Santos Manny Santos

Manny did a lot of good stuff and I think she s sh ould b the best

Ummm how is Manny at #20? She should be in the top five at least! She had the most growth out of any character on the show ever! And she was a great loyal friend! She became a pretty cool person in the end and I mean who can for get her famous "coocoo bananas" lines! She's defintley the best for me. Spiner would be my fave male! He grew a lot too! And they were both hilarious!

9 Marco Del Rossi Marco Del Rossi

He's super cuteand so sweet

10 Anya Macpherson Anya Macpherson

I love Anya so much she's amazing.

I liked her when she didn't date sav


The Contenders

11 Tristan Milligan Tristan Milligan

Sucked to see what happened to him in season 3 of Next Class

He is SO funny and cute!

He's been a jerk lately...

That picture isn't of Tristan Milligan. - PerfectImpulseX

12 Maya Matlin Maya Matlin

Unconventionally hot!

I really like her, and she's been through a lot. I do not ship her with Zig though, that relationship is a train wreck.

I don't know why but I like her so much, especially when she got depression then her storyline was really great.

When she sings, you can obviously hear auto tune

13 Craig Manning Craig Manning

Actor Jake Epstein won the Gemini Award after the episode called "Tears are Not Enough"

Craig is amazingly hot

14 Fiona Coyne Fiona Coyne

The hell is this list, sheโ€™s top 5 for sure

Undoubtedly the best character on the show, she's had so much character growth from the snobby rich girl to the down to earth friendly girl she is now, and how can anyone not flail at her and Immogen's relationship?!

The best! I love the story about how she seems to have it all, but doesn't

I really think it should be jenna or K.C. what happend to the best couple
EVER so if you can add K.C. and jenna

15 Drew Torres Drew Torres

Good guy in the end

He is awesome...because he was stupid and knew it and hey...

16 Ellie Nash Ellie Nash

Ellie had so much depth on the show. Unlike other characters, she never got things handed to her. She worked her ass off for everything!

She is just great character all around

She just rocks!

17 Jay Hogart Jay Hogart The Diary of Jay Hogart is a Degrassi Mini and is a part of the second series of minisodes that aired during the sixth season.
18 J.T. Yorke J.T. Yorke

J.T. is the best character by far on the show. I still can not get over his death and I rewatch his scenes all the time. He was the funniest, sweetest guy there was and he did not deserve what happened to him in even the slightest way. The guy who killed him should be locked up for life and Johnny should be too.

He's the best! how is he only 19?! he deserves to be at least at the top 3

Still tear up when I think about him

He sounds like an awesome person.

19 Declan Coyne Declan Coyne

Declan (Landon) is super hot! He should be #1 he will always be my #1

20 Jane Vaughn Jane Vaughn

Jane is perfection. She's tough yet sweet at the same time.

Shoulda end wit spinner hot, tough loving, yet smart, sweet
" she just kissed declan 4 times people make mistakes spinner cheated on paige with manny in season 4 so huh"
"Spinner and jane are the best couple why couldn't they make em together shame"

She's ok
