Best Book Characters
The Top Ten
Okay, don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on Tris, I love the Divergent series so amazingly much, but I really think Percy should be number 1. He's loyal, strong, brave, sarcastic, hilarious, and so much more that I love reading about.
Percy is loyal, strong, funny, sassy, and brave! Honestly one of the best book characters EVER!
I love Percy! He's a true hero that cares for his friends. I'm so happy he's number one. PJO and HoO are my favorite books. Percy is good with a sword, he's powerful, but he's still has all of these goofs and flaws that make him so relatable. He's hilarious. He doesn't look down on people like Katniss, he doesn't have to constantly be saved by his love interest like Tris. His adventures will always be my favorite, and will most likely stay with me forever. By the way, Percabeth is THE best literary romance of all time in my opinion.
ON THE LAST BOOK CANNOT WAITV 27 Comments
I don't get how she isn't number 1, she is hands down the best character in arguably the most iconic book series of all time. Harry and Ron wouldn't last through the first book if it weren't for her, proving the simple greatness her character is way beyond. She is THE role model when it comes to strong and intelligent women all around the world. She isn't just a genius, though. She's extremely loyal and incredibly brave. Everyone can learn from Hermione Granger, and so many are inspired by her.
Question: Why does intelligence matter in a character? I personally think it is personality that matter! She seems too bossy, feisty, and too much of a smart ass. She also seems like a major feminist (just saying) - missyweirdo
She teaches girls that you don’t have to care about what other people say and that you should NEVER dumb yourself down for other people and that intelligence is good and useful! If it wasn’t for her Harry and Ron would have died very quickly.
Yuck, she sucks.V 14 Comments
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.
There are so many things we can't understand after Mockingjay, but she's so authentic she deserves to be on this list. - keyson
She has no personality, no development, she is too much of a good person, and she is just a flat and static character! - missyweirdo
She is the best character ever! She has an awesome personality and is just really cool! The whole trilogy was amazing! Even though she made an very, VERY stupid decison getting together with PeEtA becouse Gale would have been a way better choice.V 10 Comments
As a younger child reading the Harry Potter series, I instantly fell in love with this character. She was an eccentric, non-conventional child that instantly struck a chord with me child-me. Was she intelligent? Without a doubt. But she also didn't fit into the stereotypical nerd category, which was definitely a breath of fresh air from the typical nerdy characters. (Don't get me wrong, I adore Hermione, I just loved Luna's uniqueness).
I'm glad she's on here instead of Clary, Jace, Bella, Edward an any other Mortal Instruments/Twilight characters
She's quirky, imaginative and original. I'd love to have her for a friend, even if she is so brutally honest. - Starsparks
PUT HER IN 1ST PLACE!V 10 Comments
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! - missyweirdo
Same as Katniss.
Peeta needs no one to save him in fact Katniss actually needs her to save him and by the way Katniss and Peeta can BOTH kick Tris Priors ass separately so don't go dissing on my favorite characters just because you have a poor opinion missyweirdo.
Really? Please tell me how an extremely bland and depressed girl and a little sissy boy who always needs his ass saved can kick a way better version of Katniss's ass? You're the one with the poor opinion, stupid fan girl. - missyweirdoV 1 Comment
I was going to vote for hermione granger but I knew hazel would be somewhere here so I kept it - pouria_mt
She's deep, philosophical and very relatable. - Starsparks
She is so inspiring
I love the book wings of fire and tsunami is my favorite out of the 5 dragonets, she brave and sarcastic and a very well developed character, I really think she should be one of the top 10 of this list.
I thought Glory was more overrated than Tsunami
I don't see why tsunami can't be a queen cause she deserves it super much
Yay tsunamiV 3 Comments
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 - FavoriteFightingFrenchman
She's an annoying stubborn whiner. Sorry. Uriah all the way! HE IS THE BEST DIVERGENT
How is Tris even on this? - thalia_thatsme
Missyweirdo, you obviously can't tell a good character from a bad one. Tris is so stupid. Katniss would kick her ass in five seconds. Stop dissing on my slay queen and read the books :(V 4 Comments
Leo is awesome!
How the Hades is he not on this list?!
Demigod of laughter - insult
YUSSS LEO VALDEZ! YOU NEED TO BE #3 KATNISS DON’T DESERVE THAT! YOU GO RIGHT AFTER SEAWEED BRAIN AND GRANGER!V 6 Comments
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)
Harry Potter, not even in the top ten. :/ Ahem, people.
How is Greg Heffley above Harry Potter?!
He literally survived the dark lord defeatd him at youn age while he knew far less magic than Voldemort he was still able to overcome himV 8 Comments
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. - Starsparks
August Pullman is clever, brave and forgives people even after they have hurt him for an entire book. - Starsparks
That kid is awesome
August Pullman was three-dimensional.

He can rewrite the bible
My fourth favourite! And his death... HEARTBREAKING #neveroverit
I like this character but I like deathbringer better I ship Glory with deathbringer hard
Glory's cool, but I want to see peril on this list.
Magical death spit.
Yes awseome!V 2 Comments
I hate them lizard mutts.
Now I have a grudge against lizards.
I love what he gave his life for. So admirable.
Why did he have to die 😢 Katniss didn't even Care when he died.
If TYRION is NOT no. 1... I don't know what could be.
The Audacity he has to stand up to his family though... #teamtyrion
A great wings of fire character
I've never heard of this 'Sunny.'
OOH, it's the baby from a Series of Unfortunate Events, right? Meh, still sucks.
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. - MrKite
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... - Ash_lovesLOTR
Aragorn needs to be higher. He's the heir of Isildur and the king of Gondor, he should be higher!
Awesome hilarious assassin dragon from the wings of fire series
Awesome hilarious laugh out loud assasin
A hilarious assassin from the wof series
DEATHBRINGER IS AWESOME DEATHBRINGER IS AMAZING DEATHBRINGER FOR THE WIN AND GLORYBRINGER FOR THE WIN BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST SHIP EVERV 1 Comment
How is she not in top 10?! she is the best female character in PJO and HOO and most of the people above her are NOTHING compared to her. She is funny, smart, and brave, she literally fell into HELL and survived, part of the time weaponless, basically Hermione Granger except with a knife not a wand - chubbypanda394
You drool when you sleep.
57? Are you kidding me? She is one of my absolute favourite characters from PJO and HOO along with Percy, Leo and Nico. I don't understand why many people don't like her. I guess that is because of some stupid fanfictions in which she betrays Percy. People need to base their opinions on the real books and not fanfictions. Percabeth is the best couple ever in my opinion but I guess people can like what they want

Without Greg, I would not be alive today. He saved me! - missyweirdo
Greg does not deserve to be on this list! Honestly, his greatest achievement is sneaking into a girl's bathroom! No kidding! He is whiny, and struggles to be himself, ruining everyone's life in the process! He is mean to his friend, Rowley, and avoids this dude, Fregley, just because he has a bad reputation, when in reality, he is brave enough to stick up for himself, when Greg can't even except himself for who he is...get a life, Greg!
Greg hasn't don much has he. Andrei Bolkonsky left his family, and his love interest Natasha, to help repel Napoleon's invasion of Russia. Hercule Poirot managed to solve many murder cases. What has Greg Heffley done? - jezza0
Look above and below this entry. Those are truly layered characters. Not to offend anyone, but Greg is simply not up to par with either of those two (currently Finnick Odair below and Tsunami above). - CyriV 3 Comments
Should be number 1!
Hell yes I love sherlock holmes
He must be in top 5
He is THE BEST! Whether you like it or not.:-)
Sherlock should definitely be 'numero uno'
Best Dragon ever and I'm a boy
She's intelligent and isn't afraid to speak her mind. Not bad for a nineteenth century girl! - Starsparks
Okay, she’s not my favorite, but I voted for her because she deserves to be voted for, does that make sense?
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.
There's too many characters from young adult novels at the top of the list. Don't get me wrong, I love a lot of those characters, but we shouldn't forget about amazing and influential characters like Atticus Finch. - Atham
It should be a crime for him to be this low. He's an incredibly well written and respectable character we can all learn from. - Atham
I'm guessing there's a lot of youngsters on here, or else Atticus would be a lot higher and all the Tweener/Millennial characters would be a lot lower. - truckturner
A Russian prince who leaves his family to fight against Napoleon's invasion. And what has Greg Heffley done? Sneak into a girl's ablutions. - mcvito
Urm.. Artemis Fowl is way too cunning for my liking, like Draco Malfoy, but the main protaginist!
This 17 year old boy with one leg once tried to create a meal entirely about Holland. - Starsparks
I love this guy. What he does for Hazel. He's very hard not to love
I love him
just love him - TheBookworm
I LOVE NEWT.
She’s one of the better things about those books - blackflower
