Best Grand Theft Auto Characters
The Top Ten
CJ deserves to sit at the top. Not only is he the most interesting character but he is also from the best Grand Theft Auto game till date. I know some people allow racism and anti black to influence their opinion on CJ. Other than that, they will know CJ is so awesome. I was torn between he and Vercetti but my vote goes to CJ in the end because he has a more of a character development and although he is supposed to be a nation wide criminal, his character makes you love him like he is the hero. He could do many things other characters can't do. He can date as many as 6 girls because he is the ladies man, learn different form of martial arts, swim, rob houses, own businesses etc etc. CJ is such a bad ass that the government even fears him and works with him. He has stormed and messed with the government, crime mafias, gangsters, corrupt cops and come out on top. He beat Claude from Grand Theft Auto 3 in a race. He can also DUAL WIELD! CJ started so low but the game will end with him ...more
Also the youngest Grand Theft Auto protagonist, he was 23-24 years old during the even. His words are annoying but funny. Even though Grand Theft Auto V has been released for a long time, CJ's name is still big today in term of Grand Theft Auto obviously. Proven by this vote.
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
I'm a white person and he is actually the best66 Comments
In my opinion best all in round character, badass, tragic, sometimes comedic - Radzz202
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.
He just has this eerie and cool feeling, he's slavic gangsta and a badass72 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.
Definitely number 1 no question.
Best character of Grand Theft Auto
In one game this man did what took all three grand theft auto 5 protagonist to accomplish, and something CJ and the whole Grove crew never did.58 Comments
Everything he says makes me laugh. He is hilarious
Trevor is The best!
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 1.65 Comments
How in the name of Jesus has he not divorced yet, a baddass and a dick head family don't work well together.
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 often27 Comments
The voice of reason for Michael and Trevor. It'd break your heart if you choose A or B in the end, so it's better to choose C. You get the satisfaction of killing those who thought they could get away with getting on your bad side. The guy who tried to have Lamar killed, the Chinese who backstabbed Trevor, Steve who tried to backstab Michael, and the rich guy who backstabbed Franklin, Lamar, Trevor, and eventually made the mistake of going after Michael's family.
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 - dirksigma17 Comments
He's my brother
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 togheter
Claude speed is different than claude because claude speed was based in 2999 ac but claude was based in 200120 Comments
All You had to do was follow the dam train, CJ!
He's epic, his appearance created a lot of memes. And it's one of the reason that made Grand Theft Auto series became famous
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.14 Comments
Good afternoon ballas dope pushers! Grove Street OG has come do damage.
He is hilarious and is dressed like a real gangsta
He is hilarious and so awesome and is not afraid of anything
He smoke a lot of weed but he cool6 Comments
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.
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
Best Villain ever. Also, Samuel L. Jackson. What's not to love?2 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!
Toni is a boss. - mazewaxie6 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.
'hey niko, lets go bowling'
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.
This character is so cool, I even went bowling with him. - MelonMan4 Comments
He said legendary n word - Zalgiris
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 DAY1 Comment
Best character in Grand Theft Auto
The golden man in Grand Theft Auto
Yusuf is the most annoying Grand Theft Auto character alive1 Comment
He was also a Badass...so sad he was killed by trevor
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. - phillysports4 Comments
The man who has the weapons you'd definitely pick in Grand Theft Auto 3. Man of words too
He's a top notch criminal.
Loved his missions on gta3
He poops too much
He Has franklin'S Back When YOU Feel Like Going On A rampage.
I named my rabbit after him.
I love chop :31 Comment
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.1 Comment
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
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!
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
He was just an all round badass5 Comments
Clever guy, always helpful, in Grand Theft Auto 5, he's giving two ways, a or b, that's cool - Orbitovsky
2012 memories with this masterpiece of gay movement - CedreticFomento
Tony was gay but funny character with anger issues
Tony is the most forgotten Grand Theft Auto tbogt charater but he is good
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
I think he's the best CIA agent on Grand Theft Auto
Why is this annoying backstabbing twat on here?
At least he didn't backstabbing his brother!
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
I voted because I respect him for running onto the boat with no weapons but don't trust Claude next time I you saw what happened to Kenji and he probably killed Maria because she wouldn't stop talking. - Roach
This guy is dope
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
Love to meet him... If I could get to the last phone, without crashing and running outta time.
The first Asian in the Grand Theft Auto Series! How can he not even be on this list! Here be Dragons! A loyal Triad forever!
This guy needs to be higher up on this list
Huang is totally the strongest because he's the one survived facing the large amount of enemy and he is rarely aided
I RUV HIM! Grand Theft Auto Chinatown is so dope
Funny and loyal
Wu Zi Mu the greatest aid and also he is very Psychical
More personality in his eyeballs than in CJ's body
He is my favorite character in Grand Theft Auto sa!1 Comment
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
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
Yep give him 8
This guy was awesome
