Top 10 Best Call of Duty Zombies Playable Characters

Call of Duty Zombies has become a beloved sub-genre within the already popular Call of Duty franchise. The zombies mode has been around since Call of Duty: World at War was released in 2008 and has since been featured in numerous sequels. The gameplay involves fighting off hordes of zombies while navigating various maps and completing objectives, all while trying to survive for as long as possible.

One of the most memorable aspects of the Call of Duty Zombies mode is the cast of characters that players can choose from. Each character has their own unique backstory, personality, and skill set, making them all memorable in their own right. From the iconic Dempsey to the enigmatic Richtofen, the characters of Call of Duty Zombies have left an indelible mark on gaming culture.
The Top Ten
1 Edward Richtofen

One crazy dude who says the strangest things, a guy you definitely don't want to cross. Yet, the alternate timeline Richtofen shows layers not seen before, especially since he's not a raving lunatic here. He is certainly the most interesting Zombies character, whether good or evil.

I don't know why, but I've always liked Richtofen, even before I knew who he really was. His quotes are hilarious, and the Origins crew Richtofen is just a total badass. Definitely my favorite character in all of Zombies!

2 Nikolai Belinski

He's just a funny character. He has tons of funny quotes like this one: "I have vodka but no ammo." The fact that he's Russian just makes him so much better. The alternate timeline shows a much more sensitive Nikolai and has a great story.

His funniest quote, I think, is when he's out of ammo and says, "I have vodka but no ammo, and I'll fight with a broken vodka bottle."

Pretty cool. His hands in Black Ops are neat. He's the funniest in my opinion, besides Richtofen.

3 Tank Dempsey

What!?!? Tank has the best story. He is the strongest head and body and knows when something's up. He knows his objective. Dempsey is number one. Why in the hell is the drunk bastard first?

He is frankly the best! Number one in my opinion, and he's a classic to the Black Ops series.

He is so awesome! Maybe even better than Yuri!

4 Takeo Masaki

I say Takeo because he is the only one who thinks logically and can see the deeper picture in every map. He always thinks about the road ahead and puts his trust in Richtofen and the spirits to guide him.

5 John F. Kennedy
6 Russman

Out of the four characters introduced at the beginning of Black Ops 2, he is certainly the best and my personal favorite. The others kind of suck. Maybe Stuhlinger gets a pass. Nonetheless, Russman for the win!

7 Abigail "Misty" Briarton

She's hot and an awesome fighter for a girl. I'm not surprised some people mistake her for Dempsey's daughter.

She easily has the best quotes. I don't have to mute the voice volume when I play.

Awesome, most sassy character. I like it.

8 Samantha Maxis
9 Albert "Weasel" Arlington

Ah, the hero of Mob of the Dead. I will never forget him.

10 Fidel Castro
The Contenders
11 Michael Rooker
12 Sarah Michelle Gellar

By far the best character in this game.

13 Michael "Finn" O'Leary

Finn is the best by far! He is a joker and a badass. What more does any character need? #FinnBestCodZombCharacter

14 Danny Trejo
15 Billy "The Kid" Handsome

Billy is my favorite character because he's an all-out badass who likes to kill zombies. He reminds me of Tank but with more cursing. He and Misty are alike, but for Billy, the bigger the guns, the better.

16 Jack Vincent
17 Richard Nixon
18 Jessica Rose
19 Marlton Johnson

Only true Teen Titan fans know that Robin went on to ride a bus with a hillbilly, a dumbass cannibal, some big African American dude, and the funniest AI known to man. He is currently killing zombies and crying himself to sleep because he never truly confessed his feelings to Batman.

Marlton may not be badass, but he still kicks ass.

20 Poindexter Zittermann
21 Nero Blackstone
22 Sal "The Butcher" DeLuca
23 Sally Simpson
24 Willard Wyler
25 David Hasselhoff
