Best Grand Theft Auto Characters
The Top Ten
I like this character 6 girlfriends so much respect from gangsta families nice life story too much helpful to he's friends and almost everyone knows him at san andreas he have the balls to face number of enemies alone and he breaks 2 times and kill everyone in military areas alone and face number of vagos and ballas to take revenge for his brother and his mother sorry for bad english
gangster, manager, owns a air plain owns a garage and is a member of a gang
grove street famalies and got a boot drives lisens and air plain lysence en car lycens and motersycel lycens cj is the best
Cj personified gangster and was a realistic personality. He had real stats and could be built from the grond up. No other Grand Theft Auto character short of fido could match his swagger and capability, but fido was still a good thick hair off that. CJ grew from small G to big G and became a world class speck op master and besides his violent capability's he still kept a slightly optimistc outlook on life and some humor to go with it. Tommy V was a cool character and a tough dude but no other characters are as cool as CJ, but few are close such as Trevor and Fido. To put it plainly CJ had the hardest missions, such as stealing a jet from a carrier to swiping the beloved jetpack from area 69. The Grand Theft Auto 5 squad did not do stuff at that level but are still great none the less. Niko was an ok character but was no were as hard as CJ or Fido and even versetti. The good thing about niko was his friendly and corismatic but a deep death dealer he wasn't. Just think to match CJ they ...more

The reason niko is great is because he is a deep character, he has the greatest story, he has his own needs, problems, a realistic personality, he is affected by his crimes and the moral damage created by them, and the only character in the series who doesn't want a life of crime, he wants his American dream.
Just... How can CJ be first? Niko Bellic is awesome and could kick his butt any day. He has a great story and he is not all gangster unlike some people.. Grand Theft Auto IV is awesome and Grand Theft Auto V is going to be amazing! - GtPirahna02
Niko is special... He was not a gangster and he cared for Roman even though he was a criminal. You can see how regretful he was when Kate (revenge) or Roman (deal) dies.
Awesome and Bad *ssV 66 Comments
Never took crap from anyone and was a real leader, CJ is tough but times he was a little soft.
Plus Tommy had more depth since his back story and connections with sonny forelli mattered for most of the game and as the game progressed, the story moved on (tommy at first finding out who took his boss's money and drugs, then the story moved on to standing alone and making his boss lose patience etc). With CJ, his story is mostly about proving himself that he is a true grove by mostly focusing on getting his brother out of jail for most of the time.
Complete badass he is strong cj however was scared of tenpenny and T. Bone mendez tommy never took orders from anyone he only worked for cash real badman right there
Played all Grand Theft Auto on play stations and even today when I am loving Trevor Tommy Vercetti is always best for me.When they were talking about gta5 I was always hoping that true mobster is going to come back.Whole character is outstanding.His look,way that he talks,way that he gets angry with baseball bat...He is the one.After him,very close is Trevor and then Nico,then CJ.He was not scared of anyone,he didn't took orders from anyone.When I think about mobster Tommy is prototype.I agree with others that he is best and that he should be back in Grand Theft Auto.

Trevor Phillips is the definition of Grand Theft Auto
Trevor was the first Grand Theft Auto character that actually made sense to play with. You could kill/blow up cars and people without it feeling random while you're playing with Trevor. Without a doubt in my mind, he deserves to be number 1.
Trevor Phillips is GRAND THEFT AUTOS best character ever and ROCKSTAR knows how to make a character two of his best friends is FRANKLIN CLINTON AND MICHAEL DE SANTA BUT HE IS THE BEST ON GRAND THEFT AUTO 5 I have completed both story modes and so far TREVOR PHILLIPS is my favorite GRAND THEFT AUTO 4 HAS two other friends NIKO BELLIC and ROMAN BELLIC the story mode is not as fun in GRAND THEFT AUTO 4 as it is in GRAND THEFT AUTO 5!
He will be number 1 by killin cj tommy and nikoV 61 Comments
Michael is the best!, he is rich and have a luxurious life style, and is a successful bank robber!
Definitely Michael because he is rich, has the best story line and Grand Theft Auto V is the best Grand Theft Auto yet - Lanatic
Although Trevor was the most fun to play as, Story Wise Michael is the most developed and most interesting, they should have had more side missions with him. And his rages were also more funnier that trevor's because they happened less often
Most fun to play lives central so you spawn in the city not in the hills or in the desertV 26 Comments
Cool man! Such an bad ass.
He was a bad ass guy he was awesome. / he was a bad ass guy I liked every thing about him
I really can't decide between trevor Michael and Franklin- to close - dirksigma
He’s with out a doubt the best has the best house on story mode and best backgroundV 16 Comments
The starting Character of the new era. One of the toughest and should be placed higher fir the sake of Grand Theft Auto I
Come on guys! Why is Claude not higher? The first character to appear in a 3d grand theft auto game and (possibly) the only character to be the protagonist in multiple grand theft auto games (grand theft auto 3 and grand theft auto 2). He's more stylish than CJ and more cold blooded than Niko. He doesn't hesitate at all! - DunnaNunnaBatman
Grand Theft Auto 2's Claude was a different character look at the wiki. - Roach
He must be the first he or Michael de Santa the two characters are my best characters claude is a Grand Theft Auto 2 and gta3 character and he is without voice actor and De Santa had a new storyline
Better than franklin and michael togheterV 19 Comments
All You had to do was follow the dam train, CJ!
He will have 2 #9s a #9 large, a #6 with extra dip, a #7, 2 #45s one with cheese and a large soda. Not to mention what all we had to was. Follow the damn train cj
Big Smoke was an awesome villain.
YOU PICKED THE WRONG HOUSE, FOOL - MaxPapV 13 Comments
Best villian in Grand Theft Auto history, hope he and catalina have kids in hell.
Probably the best antagonist in Grand Theft Auto history
The best Grand Theft Auto villain ever bros
RIP PendleburryV 2 Comments
He is hilarious and so awesome and is not afraid of anything
He smoke a lot of weed but he cool
Hella funny man
CJ straight BUSTA!V 4 Comments
Toni goddam awesome he is tough and his swearing is so cool. He is very fat in Grand Theft Auto 3. He has one of the best missions in the whole Grand Theft Auto series.
If you play Grand Theft Auto 3 he helps try to kill claude so he is not on my favorite list.
I enjoy playing as this character a lot!
Awesome simply the bestV 6 Comments
Brucie is really annoying, it hurts. - danielwotsits
Just completley insane all of his missions are roid rage. It's a shame that he didn't get on jersey Shore.
Brucid kibbutz it gay actually in luis lopez story line about gta4 episodes of liberty city offers to seduce luis for helping on punching mori and breaking his nose
Patrick mcReary Irish mobster robs banks kills for fun and he is a leader of the Irish mob after his brother gerald died
Cash cab guy haha
Irish mobster. Enough said.
Funny character who appreciates the wonder of titties!
I like how he goes from a pudgy joker to a very wise and helpful cousin at the end. But he never ONCE asked me to go bowling
If I need someone to ask me to go bowling or play darts when I'm ABOUT to go on a date, I'll go to Roman.
'hey niko, lets go bowling'V 5 Comments
This guy is so damn awesome
This dude was the true OG of Grove street. By far the best "Families" member. Even better than CJ (who is better as a wider-ranged character)
Big Smoke is in Top10, but the bloody leader of the crew who gives a fu,ck about anything and just has the crew in his heart isn't... Well, still my favorite because I can identify myself with him.
Best character in Grand Theft Auto
The golden man in Grand Theft Auto
Yusuf is the most annoying Grand Theft Auto character alive
I know yusuf is one crazy motherf***er but always keep in mind that once you do something for him he gives back, who else would paint a chopper gold and just gives it to you, and don't forget the gold rolls-royce plus, he makes me laugh every time.
I believe Catalina is the daughter of Marty and Louise, because she has Louise's eyes and nose and Marty's personality... Maybe after her parents died, Mary-Jo couldn't cope with her and gave her away, but had a cruel new family and decided to rename her to Catalina, or Mary-Jo married to a abusive man.
I believe Catalina didn't die from the explosion, I think the gunshot was her, to kill Claude and Maria.
Completely crazy. I don't wanna know what she did with CJ.
"ow! Eh! Ooh! Aw! Ouch! Damn! Oh"
Memorable female antagonist in Grand Theft Auto 3 and san andreas.V 1 Comment
Johnny Rocks. Anyone who thought Johnny was dead by Trevor, you are wrong. I don't Care what people say, Johnny will always be my favourite character. Most Badass Character of the Grand Theft Auto Universe. - DreadLocker
Johnny was badass when he run the gang & how he broke into the prison just to kill their "so called leader" named bill (billy grey).
Johnny is the best Grand Theft Auto protagonist ever, he could kill every last protagonist in every last Grand Theft Auto series.
Trevor killed him with little effort whatsoever. He doesn't sound so tough to me. - phillysports
Thought he was cool tell I saw how he died [ruined my childhood]V 3 Comments
He was hilarious! Him and Trevor made me laugh the most in Grand Theft Auto V. Especially at the beginning when he sees that Franklin made employee of the month. Just his facial expression alone was priceless.
He deserves higher he is on Grand Theft Auto v and Grand Theft Auto online.
SMOKE WEED EVERY DAY
Lamar davis or LD in hood safari he killed and robbed the famous mc clip rides then he is funny as hell and friends to trevor
Best protagonist ever! I don't care what anybody says! He's my Hero.
Vic vance and toni cipriani are way too low on this list their both really awesome and cool characters and they both deserve more. If you agree with me than please reply to my comment or like it
A light hearted protagonist who got into the crime life because his family had issues
In the fact, he the best character all of the time and make a sense, he can fight aslo can shoot because he militaryV 5 Comments
Loved his missions on gta3
This guy was awesome
He Has franklin'S Back When YOU Feel Like Going On A rampage.
I named my rabbit after him.
I love chop :3
HIS A DOG WITH FRANLIN IN Grand Theft Auto 5
How is this guy 28? By far one of Grand Theft Auto's most interesting characters!
Deserves to be at least #10
He was a cool character but not the first Hispanic protagonist. The brother of Lance Vance, Vic Vance, was actually the first since both he and his brother are Dominican
The first Hispanic protagonist in Grand Theft Auto!
Tony was gay but funny character with anger issues
Tony is the most forgotten Grand Theft Auto tbogt charater but he is good
Eaten by Toni. This is the food chain.
Clever guy, always helpful, in Grand Theft Auto 5, he's giving two ways, a or b, that's cool - Orbitovsky
I think he's the best CIA agent on Grand Theft Auto
Steve haines is kinda cool and kinda not he's a officer who asks people to do his work for him
I interject with this one, just look at his personality - Orbitovsky
The only character to be in every single 3D game
He is named after Eddie the Head, Iron Maiden's mascot he was the Host of V Rock in Vice City Stories and just like Lazlow he is a real person. - christangrant
He's gonna be awesome in Grand Theft Auto V. So is Trevor and Franklin but Micheals my favourite. Trevor second best :). - GtPirahna02
Skilled criminal with family issues & he's a funny guy - shatti
Maybe not as good as Niko, but best character in Grand Theft Auto 5
Come on guys he doesn't belong here. One of the most badass guys in the series. Should be in the top 20 at least
Come on guys, he is THE TRUTH!
He is awesome.
PS2 era's best char
Lil Jacob seems to be like a backup for niko which is why he's my favorite character. Not just that he's like a ninja too.
I really liked This character
Why is this annoying backstabbing twat on here?
At least he didn't backstabbing his brother!
You are not voting for him because he's GANGSTA.
What a trip. The guy is hilarious.
He is hilarious, he and maddogg's beef is my favorite part of the game.
Vote for jef... I mean OG LOC!
Jimmy is a low pot smoking loser who has no job and wastes his time playing slaughter 7 and drugs his dad then blames everything on him and later asks for a car
Love to meet him... If I could get to the last phone, without crashing and running outta time.
More personality in his eyeballs than in CJ's body
He is my favorite character in Grand Theft Auto sa!
He remained loyal unlike other characters and is the best to play the "Don't talk like a b*tch" game :D Simply the best
