Best Book Characters

The Top Ten

Percy Jackson Perseus "Percy" Jackson is a fictional character, the title character and narrator of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson & the Olympians series.

If I could vote all ten of my vote I would vote for Percy 10 times

I don't know if this makes sense but...

Percy is the most likable character I've ever met, and he's not anywhere CLOSE to a Mary Sue. He's stuck with ADHD and Dyslexia, and constantly saving the world, and yet he still puts up with it with his sassy, loyal, and adorably oblivious attitude!

You can't not like Percy. Or for that matter, you can't not know he exists. He's funny, a good leader, and very relatable to.

Funny empathetic kid whose life is turned around. Someone we can all relate to.

Hermione Granger

Without her, Harry and Ron would be dead already, and she should get more love.

She is my favorite harry potter character and is very inspiring.

Perfect. Without Hermione, Harry And Ron Would Be Dead. Hermione Doesn't Get Enough Credit. She Really Is The Bright Witch Of Her Age

She's funny, smart and generous. If it wasn't for her, Ron, Harry and probably the entirety of Hogwarts would have little x's where there eyes should be. Not only does she stand up to Draco Malfoy, but she stands up to anyone that treats her disrespectfully. A true heroine. -

Katniss Everdeen Katniss Everdeen is a fictional character and the protagonist of The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. She is portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence in the film adaptation franchise.

She is a badass rebel who struggles as well - which gives her her humanity

Alright, guys, no matter what anyone says, KATNISS IS NOT A MARY SUE!

Um...what's that supposed to imply? Call me uneducated, but if I ever knew what this means, I've forgotten.

Katniss is brave, selfless, wise, and she's always there when her friends are needed. She has a very strong personality which I think is a wonderful thing, and she did a wonderful job of being the mocking jay, though she couldn't protect everyone around her. I love Katniss so much, she is a awesome character!

Now, I don't read The Hunger Games a lot but heck, WHO CARES!?!? Well she seems tough to me so I like her + she sacrificed herself for her sis as a volunteer to save her from being picked to go in so she kinda cool.

Leo Valdez Leo Valdez is a character from the book series Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan. He is one of the seven heroes in the Prophecy of Seven. He is a Greek demigod and is the son of Hephaestus, and has the ability to create and manipulate fire (pyrokinesis).

Leo! Leo is amazing. He acts as a comic relief, and is hilariously funny, but he has his own story too. His narrations are really funny, and he has great character development. Way to go Leo!

Leo might seem all happy and the useless character, but he's the most broken and he deserves more love and support, and he's not useless, without him, Gaea wouldn't be defeated at all. He's one of the most important characters in HOO.

Omgs Team Leo for the win! He is my favorite percy jackson character. I love his personality and his sense of humor. He hides his pain with jokes and laughter and always tries to lighten the mood. I don't get why anyone wouldn't like him. I'm so glad he has calypso to make him happy(and keep him under control), he deserves happiness.

Leo is kind of like a small, Hispanic percy, who has fire powers instead of water. He's funny, but not as relatable to, or serious as Percy.

Annabeth Chase Annabeth Chase is a daughter of Athena and one of the main characters of both the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series and the Heroes of Olympus series. She's also Percy Jackson's girlfriend and has no particular powers aside from her brains and tactics.

Not exactly Percy's sidekick, as suggested by the Golden Boy (I totally forgot how to spell his name) in the Mark of Athena. In the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series, she's a bit moody, but kind of makes up for it by the Battle of the Labyrinth and later. She's sarcastic and funny, at times, but usually that's left to Percy (and later, Leo.)

Annabeth is way better than any one in the Percy Jackson series. As a daughter of Athena, she naturally has brains and has good advice

I relate to Percy Jackson a lot and my girlfriend is a lot like her

I'm so annabeth's sister. So smart. Probably the only one who can Keep Percy Alive!

Luna Lovegood Luna Lovegood was a witch, the only child and daughter of Xenophilius and Pandora Lovegood. Her mother accidentally died while experimenting with spells when Luna was nine and Luna was raised by her father, editor of the magazine The Quibbler, in a rook-like house near the village of Ottery St Catchpole more.

My favorite character from the series. She's smart, but also wise (WHICH IS IMPORTANT) and helps Harry find a horcrux. She NEEDS to be higher on the list!

Luna never stops to share what she believes, even though she gets teased and mistreated a lot for it. I can relate to her, most people at my school say I'm weird too.

Luna is my favourite character of all time! She just passed Neville Longbottom. She taught me Ravenclaw fonts just mean smart. It weans being unique different witty brave kind generous and much more

Lol...she the widest in the world, I love it...and am I the only one how kinda thought she a harry would have been and cute couple? I mean ginny's and fangirl.

Harry Potter Harry James Potter is the title character of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The majority of the books' plot covers seven years in the life of the orphan Potter, who, on his eleventh birthday, learns he is a wizard.

The Chosen one. Not afraid to die risked his own life to save others.

He's not the exact reason why we love the series, but come on! Give him credit- he's a preteen-teenager in the books. Literally, teenagers are practically like that, whether they think so or not. (Which I understand)

How is Greg Heffley above Harry Potter?!

Harry Potter not in the top ten? Kill me.


oh my lord
She is so freaking brave, she is super fun to hang out with, and she loves her friends :)

Tsunami is so brave and protective. She would do ANYTHING to save her friends! She is also the best at fighting out of all the dragonets of destiny. Her glow-in-the-dark scales are AWESOME! I also love how she can breathe underwater. You should vote for Tsunami of Wings of Fire!
GO, TSUNAMI! (Chants)

Haha I follow u arcticwolf because u LOVE wings of fire like ME!

I thought Glory was more overrated than Tsunami

Hazel Lancaster

Her perspective on life broke me but made me realise how great my life really is

I was going to vote for hermione granger but I knew hazel would be somewhere here so I kept it

She's deep, philosophical and very relatable.

It’s alright. She’s be joining Augustus, Fred, Tris and Prim in heaven soon enough

Albus Dumbledore Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.

Should be in top 5. He is so mystic. Hated When He Died But We All New It Was Coming. Right?

Although Dumbledore had his flaws, he was an overall selfless, wise, brave leader. He is also, like, the king of dad jokes in my opinion. A lot of people hate Dumbledore, but he meant well. Kudos to Albus Dumbledore!

While Dumbledore isn't a perfect person, he's a brilliantly accomplished wizard. He's so perceptive, attempts to do the right thing. He also has a sense of humour. Inspite of all his shortcomings and mistakes, he's a genius. Any number of adjectives will be less than enough for this magnificent "barmy old codger".


The Newcomers

? Tam
? Kinkajou

The Contenders

Peeta Mellark

How are Hermione are Luna Lovegood above Peeta? He is the best character (besides Finnick Odair, but nobody is better than Finnick) and is way better than any Harry Potter characters.

Peeta is amazing and he doesn't need ANYBODY to save him because he can save himself! He is my favorite character out of all the books I have ever read (which is a lot of books) so I don't understand why he is not number 1!

You mean that little brat who needed katniss to save his ass every 5 seconds. Peeta is a little girl, even Sofia The First is more masculine than him!

Same as Katniss.


Glory is my favourite book character-- I mean, who wouldn't like her?! Sarcastic, caring, kind and beautiful. She is WONDERFUL! I love her! Please vote for Glory of Wings of Fire-- plus, she has MAGICAL DEATH SPIT! Woo-

Kinda hated her at first, not sure why everyone is so obssesed, but she still deserves a good spot on this list.

I love her compassion! She will do anything for her friends. Her sassiness just adds to her personality!

We need to get her higher, y’all! Sarcastic, intelligent, underestimated, grumpy, cranky, brave, amazing! Plus, she has MAGICAL DEATH SPIT

Aragorn - Lord of the Rings Aragorn II, the son of Arathorn II and Gilraen, is a fictional character from J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium and is one of the main protagonists of The Lord of the Rings. He was a great ranger and warrior, and as Isildur's heir he bore the shards of Narsil, reforged and renamed Andúril, in the War more.

A day may come, when Aragorn arrives at 26th in a Top Tens List! But it is not this day! This day we VOTE! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you STAND, MEN OF THE WEST!

I’m reading LOTR for the first time, and I just met Aragorn and I love him already.

This guy should be higher - and Legolas. Seriously, Legolas and Gimli aren't even on this list. That's why I voted for Aragorn cause he's their friend and there was no one else. Needs to be more LoTR and The Hobbit characters on here.

Damn, what happened?! This guy beats EVERY OTHER CHARACTER in ALL da books I've read. Seriously. Why isn't he and Legolas higher?! I hate you people. Yes, I have read Harry Potter to know that Lord of the Rings beats all...

Tris Prior

How in all the goodness if this earth did anybody ever think that TRIS PRIOR is the best book character of all time?!?!? HOW?!?!

I know! She's not even in my personal top ten ya dystopian heroines

She's an annoying stubborn whiner. Sorry. Uriah all the way! HE IS THE BEST DIVERGENT

The irony is that according to Veronica Roth, Tris is supposed to have masculine characteristics and Four/Tobias is supposed to be kind of feminine. That didn't work out, if you ask me. She's just a Katniss 2.0. I thought she was okay in the first book, but afterwards, she's all obsessed with Four. And she dies. (I would've made this my own comment, but whether it's a negative comment, or positive, it still bumps the character up.)

How is Tris even on this?

Honestly, she could kick katniss's ASS any day

Severus Snape Severus Snape is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. He is characterised as a person of great complexity, whose coldly sarcastic and controlled exterior conceals deep emotions and anguish.

He managed to trick everyone that he is a good guy. A good actor

I think he was the real hero. He loved Lily so he spent his life Protecting harry.

Dark, mysterious, unique and always keeping the reader guessing until the very end. Snape is a character you will hate the more you read about him, until, suddenly, there's nothing left to read, and you feel very different indeed.

More like the vice - hero of Harry Potter! Go snape!

Nico di Angelo Nico di Angelo is a fictional character created by Rick Riordan. He appears in Percy Jackson & The Olympians, Hero of Olympus, and parts of Trials of Apollo. As a son of Hades, the boy is a demigod. He befriended Percy and had many roles in his long time appearance including stopping Minos, fighting more.

I like nico because he is very different from every other percy Jackson character, he is a son of hades!

Nico is amazing! I love how him and Reyna are like brother and sister.

Neeks is literally one of the best characters ever, do not tell me that I'm wrong.

I feel him. He's been through a lot of prejudice and he's an example that no matter who we are, child of hades, gay, etc. we all can find happiness

Elizabeth Bennet

Totally love her character. She is honest and sincere, strong and unashamed of being herself and it's cute how she cares for her sister Jane.

Elizabeth Bennet deserves to be higher on this list! She's quick-witted, brave and clever.


Sunny is THE BEST! She is caring, unique and special. She desrves to be first! :3

A great wings of fire character

My best friend is exactly like her.

Like a little sister to all of us.

Sirius Black

Are you Sirius? This man is one of the most misunderstood characters in the whole series, for literally half of the series he's claimed as a traitor and we only get a sliver of him, then he gets killed.

My favourite character in Harry Potter. WHY THE HELL DID HE HAVE TO DIE?

He would have been (and was) and amazing godfather to harry. I cried so hard when he died.

He should be top five he is the best

August Pullman

Ehh.. he was nice at first but he always blamed his. Sister,Olivia for trying to have a normal life

August Pullman is clever, brave and forgives people even after they have hurt him for an entire book.

He was good in the book, but absolutely terrible in the movie

That kid is awesome

Finnick Odair - The Hunger Games

If anyone doesn't like Finnick I'd like to introduce them to my fist.

At first I hated Finnick, but at the end of the series I loved him so much.

I have never been so attached to a character. When Finnick died, I cried so hard. RIP Finnick.

Finnick. There really aren't words that can describe how I felt when he died. I've read hundreds of books throughout my 13 years on this planet, and I rarely get attached to characters. But with Finnick, I think a lot of people just can't help but love him. Finnick is by far my favorite book character of all time.

Connor Lassiter

"Nice socks." That is kind of like his trademark phrase. The picture does him justice, too, and Unwind fan art isn't nearly as common as Percy Jackson fan art or anything like that

Like I said in my remix, Connor is basically what Percy is, but mortal: He's a fighter, leader, a bit impulsive in the first book, caring person and so on.

Frank Zhang

He be turning into a panda while he can (all the time) he be turning into a panda while he can (all the time) HE BE A PANDA

Not my favorite of the seven, but he's vital (especially in the House of Hades.) And he's more useful than Piper. She's all about charmspeak and her now not-so-prophetic dagger.

YESS! I am so glad that Frank is on this list, even if he's not in the top 10. He really doesn't get enough credit.

Best shape shifter ever

Artemis Fowl

Probably my most favorite book series that made me love reading

Like Artemis Fowl? In that case YES!

He's great, I mean I would date him.

Should be number 1, sorry Percy
