Best Glee Charactershatcher234
The Top Ten
The thing about Santana is that she is so strikingly real, so honest and true, to such an extent that it is seamless to identify and relate to her: she is the bitch that we love to watch because she represents the bitch in all of us. Yes, she's funny with the, frankly, rude things she says. But more than that, she is real. In her, the writers have made a truly 3-dimensional character who is not just an unpleasant person, but is an unpleasant person because of her inner struggle and turmoil. The point is, we all know what that feels like, which, in my opinion, makes her the best glee character because she strikes me as the must true.
Santana the best character on this show. Not to sound like a cliche but she is strong and independent. Even though she does not accept who she is in the begging of the show she truly blossoms into an icon in the lesbian community. I personally relate a lot to her because like her I always brushed off the fact that I was kissing girls and falling for them harder than for guys as something of a phase or boredom. But when I found the right girl for me I realized that there was no point of hiding who I am or pretending that that isn't who I am.
Ha lol shes my favorite and I did not think she'd be number 1 so... this is cool - 23MACCAjaV 110 Comments
Aside from being a very kind person and good singer, Kurt is a great role model. He stands up to bullies, comes out of the closet, and has a wonderful relationship with his dad, chases his dreams, and more.
Is it just me or are those qualities that we all wish for?
Kurt is amazing
Kurt is the best.

He may be a cheater and possessive but I just can't help but love him.
Super hot, kind person.
Blaine is awesome and a good actor.
He is mineV 101 Comments
Rachel really inspires me with her determination, and drive, her talent, and how far she's come. Yea at first she was annoying, wanting all solos and stuff. But that's what makes up her, she even said so herself. That's who she was, and she's come such a long way. I hope we can all agree that she's the most talented person on that show. A lot of people dislike her, but in my opinion, her and Finn are the best characters. They had the most chemistry, and to all those people out there saying "I hate Rachel. She's not even the best singer.." Well take a look at where let's say Kurt is? Umm.. Singing in a play of Peter Pan with the elderly? Santana? Ya well whats she doing... Rachel is on Broadway, and got into NYATA. My point is Rachel knows what she wants, she's do driven for her goals, and gets them. This is because of her determination and her TALENT. She can do what ever her mind is set to. Yea sure she was a little annoying in the beginning, but so were a lot of the ...more
My ex-girlfriend nicknamed me "Rachel" lol
She gets hate for no Reason. But that's ok because the world will always be filled with rotten bullies who try to be just like Santana (who was horrible) yes Rachel made mistakes but she always apologized and fought for what she wanted. She will always be my inspiration (love you lea Michele) Rachel was put through hell in high school she was constantly torn down and bullied so Much (Santana Quinn and Brittany ) that she almost got a nose job. She was strong enough to make it through these bullies and even when Santana tried to steal her Broadway part she still made it to Broadway and got a tony and graduated NYADA no matter how many people tried to get in her way. A true inspiration. I don't know why people like Santana so much she' accomplished nothing and did nothing but bully. WE LOVE YOU RACHEL rachel accomplished everything even if she went through hell including bullies many rough break ups and everyone hating her there was always a target on her back. All the glee fans hate ...more
Probably the character that gets the most hate in the fandom for absolutely no reason. She's talented, ambitious and strong. Aren't you all bored of those female lead characters that are extremely insecure and shy and they need a guy to make them feel like they worth it? Rachel is the total opposite of that. She knows what she deserves and she has faith in herself.V 75 Comments
To me, best character on glee. He has a dorky sense on humor, he has the looks, he's very driven and a real leader and inspiration to everyone in glee club. His voice and dorky dancing just lures you in and makes you LOVE. He is the one who brought the team together. He was the one who inspired and motivated everyone when they thought the glee club was doomed due to will leaving. He had his bad moments, like everyone does, but the way he loved Kurt in the wedding was just perfect. He worked his butt off to make the wedding as perfect as possible and would do anything for Kurt to forgive him, I like the way Finn is determined. Not to mention he's a sucker for love, and he always loved Rachel and made her feel the way no one could make her feel. He gave Rachel more confidence in herself. He would do anything for her, no matter how much he gets hurt. But also the fact that he's very sensitive and isn't afraid to show when he's weak is another quality I admire in this man. This is glee's ...more
He better be number one! He died and could out sing everyone except Leah!
Finn's my favorite. Monteith did an excellent job portraying him and while we all mourn him, his portrayal was criminally underrated.
Finn is definitely my favorite. Cory Monteith did an excellent job portraying him and what he was going through. Cory, you will always be remembered.V 51 Comments
In my opinion, Brittany is one of the best characters on GLEE. She's so funny, cute and sweet and she is caring and loving. She can dance very well and she has an amazing voice. Heather Morris is one of my favorite actresses all times, I think she did an amazing job by acting Brittany and I'm just happy to see her acting talent developing in the show. Brittany is a special person and she makes people happy, and that's what is so unique about that character.
Can't wait to hear her talking. Totally funny character
Brittany is so sweet and she loves everybody on Glee club. She never causes pointless drama and she's such a talented dancer. I was disappointed we didn't see more of her in season 5 and season 6 but I think that season 2 and season 4 were her best seasons!
Brittany is the best character on glee shes the only one that makes any sense shes super smart shes a great singer and dancerV 38 Comments
How is she only #7? She's so underrated! I've loved Quinn since Season 1! She's been through so much and has outstanding character development. She is a great friend to Mercedes in particular and has a nice voice and is (of course) very beautiful. Over the course of 6 seasons, Quinn really grew up from the cruel head cheerleader into an amazing, kind, loyal, and smart young woman. Sure, she has her flaws, but who doesn't?
Quinn is by far the most underrated character on glee! She is one of the most sincere characters and has gone through so much. She has her flaws, like every other character, but has proved time and time again that underneath it all she has a heart of gold. She also has the sweetest and richest voice although that is often overlooked. I also love Dianna Agron's portrayal of her.
There's something about Dianna Agron's portrayal of Quinn that pulls in the viewer and makes you lover her despite her many flaws. Agron paints an honest, sincere portrait of a girl who experiences the life-altering realities that many high school girls dread. And she carefully transitions the character from a mean, superficial sophomore to a softened, resolved senior.
But ultimately, the true gravity of Quinn is her relatable nature. Her character isn't exaggerated or sensationalized. Her character is, simply put, real.
I have a crush on her...V 63 Comments
HILARIOUS 1 Word (AND CAN BE KIND IN SOME WAYS TO PEOPLE)
Schuester! Yeah, I'll need to see that set list for Sectionals after all, and I want it on my desk, warm from the laminator at 5:00 p.m. And if it isand get you a kitty cat. I will let you fall in love with that kitty cat. And then, on some dark, cold night, I will steal away into your home and punch you in the face!
She is the only character in Glee who didn't once disappoint me. Even at times she failed or lost, she was elegant and never really lost her head; never resorted to childish drama. And though she was a compulsive liar and a psychopath she was a mind genius, a vicious leader and most of all - a winner, a fighter. When she strikes she's tall and fiery and doesn't let petty emotions get in her way, she's ruthless.
But in the end she was actually a good person; - she reveled in her rage but not because she had "temper issues", but because she converted her anger and controlled it, bent it into her will.
Who doesn't like Sue sylvester, I mean, she is hilarious. My personal favourite line "Get the hell out of my office". Jane Lynch, the actress who plays Sue is ultimately one of the best in the biz. She is constantly reminding everyone of her youth, and giving us a laugh every now and thenV 29 Comments
She is such an inspiring person and she doesn't mind sharing the spotlight with anybody. Even though she is underrated on Glee (a lot! ) she admits that Rachel is one of the best singers she has ever heard. That means she really appreciate other people. And she is a person you can relate to, awesome voice, personality, unique vocal range... She is everything I wanna be.
Mercedes is a diva but she's better than Rachel because even though she wants to be a big star, she's still a good friend and she makes people smile. Rachel can be a good friend too but being in the spotlight is her priority.
Love her! She totally should've won the diva off!
Mercedes is awesome. I love her voice and the fact that when she's on stage, she turns into a diva and a big star.V 9 Comments
Uhhh. This is hard for me. Like I think Marley is a sweet girl and all, but she's also kind if annoying. I disliked season 4 and 5 BECAUSE of the new characters. I could never warm up to them, and as I said before in another comment they are just trying to play the same roles if Finn, Rachel, Quinn, and puck, with these cheap new knockoffs. They don't have any chemistry I find, and they always go on about how glee is their life and how they are really going to miss It, when in reality it would just kinda effect the old characters. They were there through it all, and you can even tell that Mr. Shue loved the old characters more. He cried when he thought the glee club would end, when they graduated.. Ext... But I thjnk that Marley is trying to be Rachel. Ryder is the new Finn, jake is the new pick, and kitty is the new Quinn. They can't really live up to their expectations I find, and in really disappointed in the show, and how they just kinda kept the same story line for the new ...more
The most underrated character in the history of the show. She's the most relatable female character in the show: a simple girl with insecurities that loves performing.
Go Marley you are amazing for being able to see the best in Jake Puckerman for a little while but even when you guys broke good for you for controlling your body you go girl. You are in charge of you.
Marley is kind, thoughtful, and sweet. I can relate to Marley because she is a wall flower and shy at school and same with me.V 16 Comments
Santana is the best in my opinion she's beautiful and has the most amazing voice, but I want to vote for Sam here, Sam is like male Brittany how can you no like him, he makes the best jokes without realizing it, he's a cool dude, a downto earth guy, someone like us, he might not have the most amazing voice but he's pretty decent and his struggles are amazing, makes me appreciate what I have, he's a good character
Sam overcame a lot of problems and he proved he's a strong person! But his storyline with Rachel in season 6 doesn't feel right for me.
He is inspirational like Santana or Kurt and he is not super - talented like Rachel and Blaine, he is just an average high school boy.
Sam was such a good guy. He treated everyone of his girls right and he had respect for others.V 24 Comments
I know what happened in real life, but whatever he was gorgeous.
Puck broke all boundaries in Season 1 when after making fun of the Glee club in every way possible Puck ended up joining Glee and can I say I'm glad he did because I don't think I could live with myself if he didn't he broke the stereo type and in high school where he was the top dog he gave that up for Quinn then I think that everyone else is wrong about him he is sensitive he is a nice guy and he deserves higher than 10 place!
Noah is my fave character by far at the beginning he seemed like a real jerk but later he reveals he's a lot more then that! I think him singing is super sexy though! And when he sang keep holding on for Quinn in season 6 actually made me tear up a bit after I watched that puck became boyfriend goals and when he beat up Quinn's boyfriend for Quinn! He's such a cutie! And him with Beth was absolutely perfect! He should be number 1
In season one, Puck seems like a stereotypical high school jock but later on it's revealed that he has much more to him than that. In the glee club, Will always seems to not know how to deal with Puck and he is often underestimated by the other glee clubbers. It seems to me a bit unfair that through Mckinley everyone almost always had someone to help them with their problems (Finn had Mr Schue, Sam had Finn and Rachel, Quinn had Mercedes and in the third season she had puck) while many of his problems weren't seen to or just ignored.V 27 Comments
I love artie he's sweet, caring, and has actual problems teenagers face, he is always polite when people are performing, he is an awesome singer and I think he deserves a relationship with Kitty or Quinn. He is smart, too. I love artie and he deserves more solos and screen time.
Artie is a very kind man. He endures not only the average teenage problems, but also faces the problem of disability with a smile. He is always polite and is a fantastic singer. I believe he is the best character, but then again I'm only on season one.
He's the best male singer and he must be very inspirational for all the handicaped kids who watch the show. Also, HE? S SUPER CUTE
He is a role model for disabled kids and he is so talented.V 12 Comments
Way to go Emma you showed anything is possible when you defeated your illness once and for all when all the odds were against you no one should ever had doubted you and you show that dreams can come true. Sure you had your ups and downs but so does everyone else so I say three cheers for Mrs. Pillsbury!
She's nice and she has a really good story line. Sometimes I think she deserves better than Will, but then they're so nice together. - Pepper24Dalek
She's just so cute.
Emma is so sweet and I can sort of relate to her.V 5 Comments
Tina is one of the characters with the most development. She started as the awkward goth girl with the shutter and now she's a true diva, that shines on stage, she even won prom queen and she showed everybody in Glee that she has the charisma and the drive to be on top.
Tina's great. I can relate to her, I mean, she's not the biggest, flashiest character, she's not a Kurt or a Rachel, she's more of an average high school girl with her clothes style changing and being a team player for the first couple of seasons. I'll say it again, Tina's great.
Tina has an amazing voice, and she had so much character development. She is sometimes played off as a joke, but she so confident in herself by the end and I can relate to her, as she is always kind of in the background, but she should have had more focus because SHE. IS. AMAZING.
Tina is amazing because she is a simple girl and she might luck Rachel's star quality but she's there for her friends and she has a heart of gold. It was nice to see her coming out of her shell.V 10 Comments
Mike Chang is a god among the lesser glee clubbers. Not only is he the best dancer but he is the only one who never comes off as a complete douche. The real Glee GOAT.
Mike was that shy guy who would barely speak and seeing him transition from that into being a student at Joffery and dancing at every chance he gets is so inspirational to people like Mike- dancers, people who are labelled as nothing more than a Brainiac, and shy or quiet people who are neglected. Plus, he's really sweet!
Mike is one of the original Glee clubbers and in my opinion, one of the most interesting characters. He barely had a storyline and when he did, it was always related to Tina, but he just brought that special something in the show. He is one of those people I just can't imagine Glee without them.
Mike was that guy who didn't get much attention, but when he did, the whole episode lit up and the plot became real. I always wanted to watch episodes with him in it because his chill-attitude combined with his talent was the ultimate package.V 4 Comments
I wish he was my dad, he was so great and loving to Kurt, and wasn't afraid to be stern. He was also great at being welcoming to Finn, and standing up for his son Kurt, after being homophobic himself. And we all cried during the "Grilled Cheesus" episode
He is a great person, definitely breaks the stereotype of the fathers that are not supported of their gay sons and I'm sure he has helped many people.
I couldn't have pictured a better actor to portray the role. Burt's role just seems so real. He's so understanding and he gives the best advice to Kurt.
I love how supportive he is to kurt and how protective he is of his family😁V 1 Comment
Yeah he can be kind of a douche, but he is really funny, and such a great villain with a really great smile, voice, and awesome one liners. He is like a mix between Santana, Sue, and Terri.
His real name is grant Austin.
Maybe he isn't the nicest guy in the show but he proved to be one of the best villains. He performed well, especially in 'Smooth Criminal'. I wish he would have gotten more screen time, especially with Blaine.
He might be mean but it makes the show a lot more interesting. Besides, he is one of the funniest characters and he is also a spectacular singer.V 16 Comments
Sadly, he's so underestimated by many people. Let's not forget that Will is the reason Glee started again and he's kind of the soul of the club. Also he is the hottest teacher like ever. And not only that of course, he's the dream come true teacher to be honest. If we all were taught by such people there would be no things like violence and war and misunderstanding in the world. So, yea, vote for him, Cheers
My Favorite Star In My Favorite Show Glee Is Will Shuester Who Is Matthew Morrison He Is A Spanish Teacher He Is Amazing Teacher And Role Model He Is A Hottest Teacher He Cheers People Up He Is Honest And He Is A Dream Come True Teacher And Will Is A Director Of Glee Club And Will Is Cute Adorable Hot Charming And Good Looking Guy I What To Go In The Show Glee So I'm Close To Him And Be In Glee Club And Be In Basketball And Football So I Can See Him And Will Can Take Me To His House I Love Will Schuester
Wait...but he's mean. Not always, but remember when everything became about winning? Don't you remember how he treated Mercedes. I get it that we're all missing Glee right now and it's easiest to think of him since was their leader but seriously, he was awful. - jebofaq
The bestV 6 Comments
I liked him a lot in season four, but the writers kind of screwed up his character in season five. I hated how he treated Marley and then he expected her to forgive him like nothing happened.
He has a pretty good voice, and has been the best male dancer in Glee Club besides Mike Chang. He and Marley also had really great story lines.
The new puck? I don't think so. He tries to be but can't even come close
It seems like he's trying to copy puckV 1 Comment
Even though I voted for Kurt (because Kurt is- well. Kurt. ) I love Lauren and I'm so sad to see that she's quite hated. I find her awesome, so badass and funny, it's like a breath of fresh air and the fact that, like some haters said, they don't try to make her attractive and she still gets the "hottie" is just so amazing. The badasses meet and I'm so sad Puck ended with Quinn and Lauren left so soon, I just really loved her.
Lauren was really inspiring when she ran for prom queen she shows you don't have to be super model skinny to be cool... well her and Megan trainer
I really love her she stands up for what she wants and is the only girl puck had to fight for!
I loved the tshe ran for prom queen
He's very sweet and he has an amazing voice. I wanted him to sing more because Innocent Man and Your Song were just awesome.
So hot, he sings well and he is a sweet guy! !
So handsome! And he sings so well. Marley was meant for him. I wanted them to be together... RYLEY
I find her kinda annoying... Her voice, and how she buys happiness with money? Why the hell would Artie and Rory right over her? Like I have to keep saying in all the other comments, she's trying to be the new Britney, and isn't completing the role at all!
Shes just the best I love her
sugar did nothing wrong
Holly has all these young and fresh ideas that made glee more interesting... not that it is not the most interesting show ever
She makes will look like a grandpa
Hilarious, and totally cool
She is so interesting! love her so much
People compare her to Quinn a lot but she's her own person. Quinn was unclear about her motives and you could never guess what she would do next. Kitty is more immature, she's more of a high school girl that gets jealous and she's mean just because that's what people expect from her. The only thing they have in common is that they were both cheerleaders and that they were blonde.
Yea I have to agree with some of you. I'm really annoyed and I disliked season 4, and 5 because of all the good characters were gone! I couldn't warm up to the new actors, and as much as they could try to replace Quinn with kitty, Rachel with Marley, and Ryder with Finn, they could never replace them. There was something special that happened on glee with the original cast, that rarely happens in T.V. shows. But after they left, replaced them and got cheap knockoffs, I was actually disappointed in the show.
She has been through hell, she overcame bullying and every obstacle that came in her way. Now she's such a stunning, talented and remarkable young lady. She has an amazing soft voice and I just can't wait 'til I see more about her in the future! She is awesome.
At the beginning of season four I hated her for how she treated Marley but at the end of the fourth season and in the beginning of the fifth season I started really liking her. I think Artie made her a better person.V 14 Comments
In my opinion Santana is the best character, but I think Dave deserves more way attention as he really changed and turned into a nice guy. He just didn't deserve Blaine because he is an annoying selfish person. This is just my personal opinion.
Not even close to the best your crazy but! He came VERY long way and he is very accepting now
He has developed so much, he accepts himself now.
Rose are red puppets are blue I love karofsky and so do you.V 6 Comments
I wish he got more screen time. He was a great singer and his accent brought something new to the show, even if it was really small.
Rory's just so sweet and naiive. He's loyal it just makes me sad he gets bullied and the he's only in season 3 makes me want to to take a flamethrower to Fox Studios.
I cried when he lied about getting deported because I dident know he was lieing
Starchild wasn't an interesting character at all that's why he was written off. Adam Lambert is so talented but the truth is that he got stuck with a boring character.
Why you guys always forgets adam lambert? ,
He's the best on glee with best voice and stylish looks... he's so cute even at 32..
Too many people leave Adam out haha
He is better than any in this list... oh come on, give some vote for the real tallent! - glambert
The best characters! He is so inspiring and provides all the laughs
How is Lord Tubbington not #1?! I love him he's so inspiring. I wish he had more screen time, and I think he totally deserves a solo!
He's so inspiring
His story line was so influenticalV 2 Comments
She was super hot, but didn't the actress who portrayed the character have a sex change or something? Or am I getting mixed up with someone else?
She had the best voice so far on Glee. She should be a regular now. She sang the original song made by Glee called "As Long As You're There" and she just nailed it. - hatcher234
She's the biggest threat in Glee, I hope to see her as an ally next time.
She is just amazing in this show. She represents everyone who is so tiny yet so talented. - hatcher234V 4 Comments
I hate that rachel ended up with him, he was an alright character but it made no sense, he was a horrible person to her and when finn died I know it was hard for the writers to figure it out, but man I swear sam should have ended up with her. There chemistry was great and it made sense as he was kind of "the new finn" there was no explanation for there break up at all
You now what people. I live Jesse he my manger
I HATE jesse and he egged rachel and then married her witch is sups annoying rachel should have ennded up with sam
Jesse is an amazingly funny and charming character, plus he's amazing when it comes to singing and dancing c:V 3 Comments
Such a funny and inspirational character. I'm glad they have a character with Down's syndrome in the show to show diversity and that its okay to be different.
She is so funny and awesome! You go girl!
I LOVE her. She's a role model to me.
Becky is funny and very smart.V 1 Comment
He's abviosly jealase of the bald guy
Oi, that's the wrong Joe Hart. That's the Goalkeeper for Manchester City. Should be the Glee character. Whatever. I like soccer/football and Glee equally.
She deserves so much more recognition! :(
She seems so nice, and the story behind her is so sad, and she is also a very buce person.
She is the best one for me as the best character in glee
I think that Unique should be at number 1 because come on who is more inspring than Unique. She/He fought and defeated everything anyone through at her/him and even though she/he had help she/he had the courage to ask for it and accept it. She/he is a true inspration to anyone who has trouble being themselves.
A true inspiration to all!
YOu deserve number 1V 4 Comments
Don't get me wrong she was great but if she was sober more I would have probably learned more about her
Kristin Chenoweth did an amazing job at her
Guys I kinda hate April, she's really annoying - Gatelykatie
He's kind of a background character that provides the laughs, not an actual character with storylines and stuff.
I can't believe he won prom king.. but he was knocked out with a bucket and that was pretty funny
Why is he even in the top 40?
He is like, sue Waring a dress and high healsV 1 Comment
She has a very powerful voice, I really like her song colorblind she was simply just amazing, she is a mezzo-soprono, her strong pipes where not feature as much in season 4 she really does deserve the solos
She's an actress, you idiots.
Mercedes is in number 10, Amber Riley is the actress that potrays her.
A.K.A. Mercedes, who is #10
He/she is awesome
He shows respect to every kid that is diffrent
A.K.A. Wade "Unique" Adams, who is listed above as #21
I really loved the'if I were a boy' version you could here the pain in his voice on top of that he is a male soprono a very rare voice type for men I just love him. Boogie shoes was also the best, he may have a beautiful and soild voice but some of his notes in 'if I were a boy' were kinda piercy to the ear, and he lacks the formal training lea michele has
She was a great mom, and what Quinn tried to do to her was terrible. Also, how can you not love Idina Menzel?
Shelby rules but I wish she and rachel stayed closer
LET IT GOO
The show would be a lot better if she was actually pregnant
She is trying to be santana she is terrible
Jake treated her like crap.
Like a lame santanaV 2 Comments
She is an awesome mom I wish she was my mom she should be number 1 Go GIRL🏆
Honestly, Mason was the most underrated person in Glee in season six. The kid had one episode dedicated to his problems and we never got to see his whole story unfold. However, he is a genuinely funny person and his voice and dance moves are AWESOME!
