Best Book Characters
The Top Ten
Percy is amazing, you better vote Percy
Everyone vote Percy or else
He is a heroic, modest, and kind character who faced death with NO rewards. He is honestly the best book character ever-
Hell to the yes! My boy Percy's the goat!48 Comments
Ok guys, the most awesome character ever is here. Without her Harry would have died by the 2nd book- if he was lucky. She is strong and fierce and everything a heroine should be.
Also I don't mean any hate on Harry Potter. He's also super cool and should at least be in the top 10.
Nah even the first harry and Ron would have been choked by the plants and he wouldn't know what potion to take. For the people who know harry he would have guessed because he wanted to save the people he loved how little the chance was and there would be a great chance he would have died or something like that - Potterhead2001
She is kind, brave, smart, strong and my favourite caracter ever
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.

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!
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.
I actually wanted to vote for Ron because I knew he would be lower than Harry and Hermione, but couldn't find him and Katniss is a Great character
And no you can't roast me because I'm the one that chose the badass pic for her - missyweirdo11 Comments
Tsunami? WhErE's OrIgInAlItY
OH MY GOSH! MY FAVORITE WINGS OF FIRE CHARACTER MADE IT TO THE TOP TENS LIST! REE! - ArcticWolf
NOW IN FIFTH OH MY GOSH! - ArcticWolf
Haha I follow u arcticwolf because u LOVE wings of fire like ME!10 Comments
Sweet, innocent, Luna deserves to be in the top 5. She is just the most wise, kind, smart, and optimistic book characters of all time and deserves so much more. Now, I'm gonna stop typing because, if I don't, I'll write a full page on how helpful Luna was.
Thank God that Luna is in the top 5. I mean why wouldn't she. Luna is smart, funny and overall a good friend. When Harry couldn't find the Ravenclaw diadem who knew? Luna of course, she told Harry where "the white lady" was and she found Harry when he was abandoned and left with a bloody noose on the Hogwarts express. I can honestly say that Luna is one of the best characters ever.
Harry Potter is already such an overrated book series, and in Harry Potter Luna Lovegood is such an overrated character! She does not deserve to be fourth, in my opinion. - MikyPiky
She is a strong reminder to every person out there, whether they are a child or adult, that you should embrace your quirks and not let others beat you down because of them. For all you know, they could save the world someday.16 Comments
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! - missyweirdo
Same as Katniss.3 Comments
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
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".
He can rewrite the bible
My fourth favourite! And his death... HEARTBREAKING #neveroverit
When the series gets dark, so dark you want to set down the books and walk away, Leo will come in and keep you reading. He makes the reader laugh in an unpleasant place in the book. The secret of his fire power he keeps in the beginning of the HoO series pulls you into his character, giving you a glimpse into a mystery. Even after its revealed, he continues to be hilarious. His death made me cry, then I felt stupid when I realized he didn't die. His relationship with Calypso adds even more to his character. He actually has flaws, something that every good character needs. He is in my opinion the best character out of all Rick Riordan's books and deserves a higher spot on the list.
Umm he was a great character
TEAM LEO! BACK OFF CALYPSO! - CloudyDaze13 Comments
Yay! Glory made it to the Top Tens! - ArcticWolf
She is my favorite character in the Wings of Fire series. Glory is so sarcastic and funny. She’s absolutely the best! #GloryBringer!
Magical death spit.
I like this character but I like deathbringer better I ship Glory with deathbringer hard5 Comments
She's an annoying stubborn whiner. Sorry. Uriah all the way! HE IS THE BEST DIVERGENT
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
How is Tris even on this? - thalia_thatsme
Honestly, she could kick katniss's ASS any day - missyweirdo4 Comments
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 him
Harry Potter not in the top ten? Kill me.
My idol right here
Best needs to be one8 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
I am sticking with that response - crazycat99
Why isn't she in the top 5? - crazycat99
"I'm not letting you go. Never again"
"As long as we're together" - spaceklance
You drool when you sleep.6 Comments
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. - Starsparks
That kid is awesome3 Comments
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.
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
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.
18th? Seriously? Finnick deserves to be at least in the top 3!
I hate them lizard mutts.
Now I have a grudge against lizards.
Why is he not in number 1? Seriously 😒3 Comments
He should be top five he is the best
He is a cool and brave character.
He is the best fictional character ever.
Why the hell not? Why's like the hyperactive younger sister that you never wanted. Well, maybe not family, but not someone you'd ever want to go away.
She’s one of the better things about those books - blackflower
Favorite character though I'm a boy
Best Dragon ever and I'm a boy
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! - SpaceHazard
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... - Ash_lovesLOTR
More like the vice - hero of Harry Potter! Go snape!
He is cool
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
I'm scrolling down this list seeing all these inspiring, amazing characters, and then I see Horton...
Thank you Mr. Twain
Hopefully this person is a Goddess Girls fan…
Ment to vote for cinder pelt from warrior cats. The books were not great but cinder pelt was swag
Awesome hilarious assassin dragon from the wings of fire series
Awesome hilarious laugh out loud assasin
A hilarious assassin from the wof series2 Comments
I had to add it! - ArcticWolf
The one character who has defined mannerisms. Nobody else comes even close. You say you want "layered" characters. How about a believable person that has their quirks? Not everyone needs to have had their family shot dead.
He must be in top 5
He is THE BEST! Whether you like it or not.:-)
Sherlock should definitely be 'numero uno'
Hell yes I love sherlock holmes1 Comment
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
Without Greg, I would not be alive today. He saved me! - missyweirdo
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). - Cyri
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? - jezza03 Comments
"GO TO FIRST DOBBY! " "DOBBY BE A FREE ELF! "
And that my friends is why dobby is not higher - CloudyDaze
Dobby is the Best! "Master has giving Dobby a sock? Dobby is FREE! " "You shall not harm Harry Potter"
He is the kindest character ever!
My favourite book character.
The prettiest and bravest girl I have ever seen in T.V. series
Clay is another playful dragon who is a mudwing in the series Wings Of Fire, and I think he's the main character too. Probably so, and I just love the way is so sweet and non-fitting in :3 :3 :3
He does anything to save anyone enemy or best friend he risks his life in the clans to save cats from other clans that's what makes him special - Potterhead2001
My fire boi needs to be higher than this
He is amazing I LOVE warriors
THIS NEEDS TO BE HIGHER
though I agree with Percy for number one
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.
Okay, she’s not my favorite, but I voted for her because she deserves to be voted for, does that make sense?
She's intelligent and isn't afraid to speak her mind. Not bad for a nineteenth century girl! - Starsparks
He is such a lovely nice king and he s brave you will see how brave he is if you have read the early years - Potterhead2001
That picture is SO creepy - CloudyDaze
That blood is so fake - Murphypaw
Th9is is gay
