The Top Ten Best Book Characters
Funny empathetic kid whose life is turned around. Someone we can all relate to.
He's the best character ever! I can't imagine a life without his amazing adventures! Seaweed Brain for once and all!
Funny, genuine, empathetic and charismatic, it was a true pleasure to get inside your head and follow your adventures Percy.
Wow! I didn't expect him to be first but I'm so glad. I love the percy jackson books and percabeth is my heart and soul!
Perfect. Without Hermione, Harry And Ron Would Be Dead. Hermione Doesn't Get Enough Credit. She Really Is The Bright Witch Of Her Age - thenextsteplover
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. -
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
Hermione is the best and when u ask someone who’s your favourite Harry Potter character no one says Harry
Alright, guys, no matter what anyone says, KATNISS IS NOT A MARY SUE!
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.
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.
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.
Oh my gosh I was so sad when dad said Luna was taken by da ministry
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.
I don't care what the actual plot is, as long as there's Leo it's my favorite scene. My astronomy sign is a Leo, and I plan to name my first son Leo after him.
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.
He is the best of the best don’t you deny it. Why did they give him such a depressing picture?!,!
Leo is awesome!
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!
Tsunami is one of the best characters ever,
she is sassy and a bad ass and totally deserves to be up here.
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.
Smart, witty, and fed up with Hera. who doesn't love her. she was the first character I would ever relate to
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.
"I'm not letting you go. Never again"
"As long as we're together" - spaceklance
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
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
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.
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
More like the vice - hero of Harry Potter! Go snape!
Snape snape severus spape
He is cool
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-
We need to get her higher, y’all! Sarcastic, intelligent, underestimated, grumpy, cranky, brave, amazing! Plus, she has MAGICAL DEATH SPIT
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.
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 in the top ten? Kill me.
How is Greg Heffley above Harry Potter?!
Harry Potter, not even in the top ten. :/ Ahem, people.
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
Honestly, she could kick katniss's ASS any day - missyweirdo
He should be top five he is the best
He is a cool and brave character.
He is the best fictional character ever.
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
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
He was good in the book, but absolutely terrible in the movie
That kid is awesome
A great wings of fire character
Like a little sister to all of us.
I've never heard of this 'Sunny.'
OOH, it's the baby from a Series of Unfortunate Events, right? Meh, still sucks.
I like both of the characters. Coincidentally, they both get trapped in cages. - MaxAurelius
In my opinion Nico di Angelo had the most heart breaking story ( I still am angered at Hades for saying IN HIS FACE that he liked his sister Bianca better while he was still mourning over her death), was dire to the story in both prophecies, and had the most character development out of every character in the entire book. When this is posted he is currently at number 104 and I am just like "how"? Some dark part of the fandom thinks he is overrated yet he is behind Percy and Leo. Also original.
Nico is the best search up all seven names and look at fan art amazing
I feel for the guy. he has been through so much. he deserves the world.
Him and will?
THE CUTEST SHIP EVER - CloudyDaze
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.
I hate them lizard mutts.
Now I have a grudge against lizards.
18th? Seriously? Finnick deserves to be at least in the top 3!
I love what he gave his life for. So admirable.
The Audacity he has to stand up to his family though... #teamtyrion
If TYRION is NOT no. 1... I don't know what could be.
My favourite book character.
She's smart and inventive... I want to be her
So young so talented
The prettiest and bravest girl I have ever seen in T.V. series
Probably my most favorite book series that made me love reading
Like Artemis Fowl? In that case YES!
Should be number 1, sorry Percy
Urm.. Artemis Fowl is way too cunning for my liking, like Draco Malfoy, but the main protaginist!
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
The one true king of men
I'm scrolling down this list seeing all these inspiring, amazing characters, and then I see Horton...
God hortons so hot
This needs more votes
What does he do?
One of my favorite fictional characters who just needs a hug (from someone fireproof) - Cyri
I can't believe there are so many WOF characters I'm so glad
this is a really cool character
Favorite character though I'm a boy
I love Peril so much. Why only 1%? She's blazing!
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
Best character in the series. She's tough, capable, and sexy - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
Thank you Mr. Twain
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.
Most famous detective of all time
Hell yes I love sherlock holmes
He must be in top 5
Elijah Wood had a crush on her - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
Hopefully this person is a Goddess Girls fan…
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 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
He DIDN'T looked happy on the picture.
She's strong, rebellious, and unafraid to flaunt her sexuality - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
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 series
I had to add it! - ArcticWolf
"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!
Elf swag loves socks
I was so sad when he died
God, I'm rereading the first book and I'm just like he was so perfect and young.
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
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.
Best shape shifter ever
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 sometimes wish Harry ended up with her - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate
i can't believe there are so many WOF characters I thought that barely any0ne knew it
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
