Best Family Guy Characters


The Top Ten

1 Stewie Griffin Stewie Griffin Stewart Gilligan "Stewie" Griffin is a main character from the animated television series Family Guy. Obsessed with violence and matricide, Stewie is the youngest child of Peter and Lois Griffin, and the brother of Meg and Chris Griffin.

In 50 years, when people think of Family Guy, they'll think of Stewie Griffin. - findouter

Stewie is the best because he's like a prodigy at only 1 years old he is evil and funny and loves to torture Brian Stewie is funny like in Stewie Loves Lois when he did the mom mom thing

He deserves the number 1 spot but for me either him Peter or Brian can be in this spot. I would have Quagmire at 4 not ahead of Brian. Everything Stewie does has meaning to it, but he is messed up in so many ways. He is extremely funny, entertaining whatever' you want to call it and no doubt is a big reason why this show has been on so long. The him hating Lois all the time gets annoying at times and sometimes they overdo it a lot. I have no problem with him being number 1 however. The scenes with he and Brian together are very humorous. Vote for any of Peter Stewie or Brian

The best on the show

2 Peter Griffin Peter Griffin Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

Well, you cannot count the fat man out. - aeromaxx777

Peter is the reason I watch the show. I don't really care for anyone else in the family (except Brian and Stewie, but only when they're together). - djh101

I'm exactly the same though I still do like Stewie even on his own.

Based on him being the main character on this series, he takes stupidity to a whole new level. I remember when he sat on Tom Tucker and pretended to be a child and pulled that off splendidly. Seth does a great job portraying him. When you think family guy who definitely think of Peter and he can create a humoured moment with anyone. The fat man is hands down hilarious

his laugh - ihatetrump

3 Brian Griffin Brian Griffin Brian H. Griffin, popularly known without his middle initial as Brian Griffin, is a fictional character from the animated television series Family Guy.

When he acts like a person, it's funny. When he acts like a dog, it's HILARIOUS! - booklover1

The first three (or four) seasons of Family Guy had this character as the Only Sane Man of the show. He is one of my favorite characters in Family Guy, along with Stewie and it's best when the two characters are forced to work together in the "Road to..." episodes.

Sadly, Brian had lost all his cool from Season 5 (or 4, depending on your opinion) and onward and is now a hypocritical, obnoxious who thinks only of himself and nobody else. As a result, his two-episode long absence from Kenny-syndrome (pretty much, the character is killed off, like Kenny in "Kenny Dies" the reason for that name is because Seth had probably taken the idea from that episode and thought it would be 'original') would make you lose all sympathy for him and you'd instead wish him dead.

He's still a great character nonetheless and I hope that his original personality will return (unlike a certain show about a yellow-skinned family).

He is great for an adult audience. They are the one's who can relate to him. His jokes are really good but most kids don't understand them. Just the fact that he's a talking dog is funny

He's a douche - ihatetrump

6 Joe Swanson Joe Swanson

Way funnier than Quagmire, Joe's random outbursts are really funny and one of the few characters who didn't turn into a totally retarded jerk. I like cleveland too.

And who says you need powerful legs to have a normal life? Not me. - aeromaxx777

A cop with good strength however he is handicapped because he fell from a house after he was stopping the grinch steal presents during Christmas

Bonnie wants to kill him - ihatetrump

7 Chris Griffin Chris Griffin Christopher Cross "Chris" Griffin is a fictional character from the American animated television series Family Guy.

Chris provides the comic relief, and I absolutely love stupidity on a T.V. show. Chris is the epitome of stupid on that show, and it's hilarious! - alexschubert

Say whatever the hell you want about Chris, but he's adorable. I really hate all the hate he gets. I think he's an amazing and funny character, and I love his and Stewie's brotherly bond

I just love his role in the star wars spoof. So cute, so fat, so sexy. - aeromaxx777

I love all of the griffin kids except meg. I think Chris still has his idiot charm but he's gotten a lot smarter from his first 3 seasons

8 Herbert the Pervert Herbert the Pervert

I just LOVE his pedophile antics. Yyeoo... Little uhh Boys

9 Lois Griffin Lois Griffin Lois Patrice Griffin is one of the main characters of the American animated television series Family Guy.

Lois is so funny. Peter and Stewie are good too but they have too much love already. Lois has raised Chris and Stewie. She loves Stewie so much and I like when Stewie keeps saying mamma and Lois gets pissed. She has a unique voice, but it is whiny...

Boss: Where did you go to college?
Lois: Groceries.
Boss: Where did you work before this?
Lois: Groceries.
Boss: Okay, this is a trick question, Groceries?
Lois: I'm hired.

It is a miracle she maintains her figure after 3 children - aeromaxx777

She's one of my favorite characters from Family Guy. I don't get why people doesn't like her.

10 Cleveland Brown Cleveland Brown

Greatest character, even in his own show The Cleveland Show, plus he was the best in the Star Wars Parody - roblist

The black man who knows how to live an interesting life. In a good way of course. - aeromaxx777

No no no non no noo!

He's a sexy - ihatetrump

The Contenders

11 Meg Griffin Meg Griffin Megan "Meg" Griffin is a character from the animated television series Family Guy, voiced initially by Lacey Chabert, thereafter by Mila Kunis.

I like meg griffin because although she doesn't have the funniest lines herself, she is often the subject or cause of many of Peter and Stewie's best lines, without her the show would definitely be lacking a key character.

Give this girl a break. She has been in a lot of crap in this show - aeromaxx777

She's easily one of the kindest characters, and she takes absolutely insane amounts of abuse from everyone, every day. And yet, she still marches on. She takes the abuse from the world and she refuses to give up. She still looks for someone who will like her, she'll call out her family when they are being horrible, and more often than not, she's shown to be the one to offer kindness to her family when they are in need of it.
She's still flawed, for sure, but unlike many of the other characters, her flaws aren't a result of her own maliciousness. She's desperate for affection and attention, clingy, but all of this stems from the abuse she's forced to take.

Shes not uhly - ihatetrump

13 Consuela

Mr. Superman no here... Laugh out loud! She should be in the top 10

Consuela is like no... No... No and has a good accent. She goes 155 instead of 1125 get it? One 1 and 2 fives! Consuela is also funny on the valentine one where she says ci, ci! Also on bigfat where she goes to the curling olympics

Consuela is awesome. Get Death, Adam West and Herbert the Pervert out the way otherwise I'll get Consuela herself to argue with you until you agree.

No, no. Mr Jabba no here.

16 Kool-Aid Man

Its hilarious at the courtyard where everyone in the courtyard says oh no and kool aid man comes and says oh yeah and this guy crashes into kool aid mans house and he says wow you know from the other side that's kind of annoying and later later he fixes it and carter says peter can I see you at the door a second sure he pushes him off good as new and peter crashes into his house oh come on

I like the time in the Simpsons Family Guy crossover when they are in the courthouse and after everyone says oh no! It takes like a minute and then Peter gets a call and Kool Aid Man says yay wrong Springfield

Here let me just poor my liquid into your mouth - YOSHIA2121

Oh Yeah1

30 Seamus

I like Seamus

31 Bonnie Swanson Bonnie Swanson

I HATE Bonnie. She planned to cheat on joe

A very sweet person she has a cute baby and a scary husband Bonnie should be. In more episodes

32 Super Mario Super Mario Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super more.

Why is he bellow meg?

33 Carter Pewderschmidt

First of all, it's spelled "Pewterschmidt." Second of all, say hello to on of the best characters on Family Guy! A rich old man, always terrible to Peter in hilarious ways (such as making him eat a pinecone before he'll help him) and trying (and failing) to be a good dad.

He's definitely my favourite character. - Consequently

How did anyone even vote for him. Worst character on the show. Period.

I like him very classy and kinda funny

34 Bitch Stewie Bitch Stewie

Lol this was really funny I guess - Jau37

35 Jesus

Although he is in hardly any episodes when he is, despite the obvious ply offensive manner, it's like the funniest bit in an episode. God too his hilarious like when he's trying to pick up girls

How could you forget jesus our dear savior in family guy form jesus is awesome I love jesus and to see him in family guy just is quite cool the way jesus is walking in the streets is awesome it's like he is the coolest character ever

Yes, he was on an episode of Family Guy.

He is really cool

36 Joyce Kinney
37 Stella


38 Diane Simmons

Stewie is awesome. Diane isn't.

39 Gay Bee

Free honey for everyone, yaay mayor bee mayor me. So hilarious cracks me up every time

40 Neil Goldman
41 Mr. Washee Washee

I think this character is undeservedly forgotten, but actually episodes with him remind me of the times when Family Guy was funnier. It's a pity he has so little emergences in the latest episodes. I like that even his character himself has a lot of references to different shows/movies/games, especially those which are retro enough to be considered nostalgic. Aand of course his personality is...really a thing. I like it how at first he seems to be harsh and sometimes even cruel, but at the same time he tries somehow to find the common language with his "american" neighbours (at least he accepted Peter's apology! ) and sometimes he is ready to even make concessions in conflicts (remember the episode when he decided to have a relatively fair fight instead of shooting Peter for breaking into his house). And he also taught Peter to play the violin...though his methods are rather cruel as well, he finally HAD got a very good result, though Peter was not a very diligent student. That means ...more

42 Susie Swanson

Patrick Stewart. That is all.

43 Carol Pewterschmidt
44 Opie

Retarded man who is Peter's superior at work

He's hilarious

45 Jasper

He is funny but also offensive Cuzco he is a walking gay steriotype

He is honestly the best character. Yes, he is a bit too much of a gay stereotype, but I can look past that, I mean, he is apart of my favorite group.

46 Carl
47 Michael Moore

Versus Peter Griffin in the Farting contest. This one took me by surprise. If you had explained it to me I would have labeled it middle school humor and dismissed it. It may still be middle school but it is hilarious. I don't know why but the timing and the situation is brilliant.

Yes, like the other comment, I would have NEVER had thought this scene would have made me crack up every time I see it. It is a guilty pleasure pure and simple. - mgenet

48 Brian's Clone
49 Fjurg Van Der Ploeg

He is funny

Halluo! Welcome to Fjurg's Backerie! Would you like a hat piece of pee... It's on the hoose! Ooh No! Yer covered in ma hat pee... You can wash it aff in der waiter clooset!
