Best Book Characters
The Top Ten
He his totally on top
This series is awesome I can't stop reading them. You have to love it!
"I'm not letting you go. Never again."
"As long as we're together" - spaceklance
Come on, guys! He's the son of Poseidon! - AnnaOV 37 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.
YOU GO GIRL!
She's the coolest girl in all of books. - girlcool

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 - missyweirdo
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.V 10 Comments
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.
She is number 1V 15 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!
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. - missyweirdo
Actually Peeta Mellark is the most caring person I know. he's strong and kind and is always thinking about other people.
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! - missyweirdoV 2 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
My fourth favourite! And his death... HEARTBREAKING #neveroverit
He can rewrite the bible
Tsunami? WhErE's OrIgInAlItY
Tsunami is one of the best characters ever,
she is sassy and a bad ass and totally deserves to be up here.
I like Starflight better
I thought Glory was more overrated than TsunamiV 6 Comments
How is Tris even on this? - thalia_thatsme
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
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
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.
When you realize you voted for the wrong demigod - Ziafour
Demigod of laughter - insult
He's hot. Enough said.V 9 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
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 oneV 8 Comments
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.V 2 Comments
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.V 6 Comments
Magical death spit.
Glory's cool, but I want to see peril on this list.
I like this character but I like deathbringer better I ship Glory with deathbringer hard
Any dragon that can spit poison from their fangs is awesome. Not to mention the camoufluage, to make them impossible to see.V 3 Comments
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
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.
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
I'm scrolling down this list seeing all these inspiring, amazing characters, and then I see Horton...
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
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.
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!
Hopefully this person is a Goddess Girls fan…
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
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 holmes
Should be number 1!
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
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!V 3 Comments
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!
oh yeah!V 3 Comments
Favorite character though I'm a boy
Best Dragon ever and I'm a boy
My favourite book character.
The prettiest and bravest girl I have ever seen in T.V. series
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
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.
He is amazing I LOVE warriors
THIS NEEDS TO BE HIGHER
though I agree with Percy for number one
He is the best people
Vote for him
Firestar for president
I WAS LOOKING FOR THIS AND IS IN 44TH PLACE! #u#V 1 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
I love this guy. What he does for Hazel. He's very hard not to love
This 17 year old boy with one leg once tried to create a meal entirely about Holland. - Starsparks
