Best Characters from The Enemy Series


The Top Ten

1 Edward Carter

More commonly known as Ed, he has been one of the characters who develops throughout the series. In The Dead, he is first seen cowering behind a table, while his friend Jack attempts to kill a diseased grown-up. Over the course of the series, he outgrows his cowardice and becomes one of the most respected characters. - Wolftail

Ed is a character with great development. He starts off as a scared child who can't even kill one sicko and now he's a respected character who appears as a nice guy but inside he's a psychopath

He has a background and depth, and he has good morals and always tries to help, especially with small sam

I love him more than anything

2 Dylan Peake

A bad ass character who can have broken ribs, a concussion, and many other injuries and still kill Sickos that outnumber him 3:1. On top of that he tries to do the right thing when he can.

Dylan Peake holds a rather unusual persona; however, he uses this to help him survive, whilst adapting to the apocalypse and trusting his instincts. No doubt a favourite for many

He is loyal and brave and is really underrated because he has depth, he is very clever

The best character full stop. If you don’t know who he is, he is Shadowman. He’s survived lots of things that would normally be fatal, he’s clever, he CARRIES A CROSSBOW for gods sake, and to be honest, I kinda imagine him as kinda hot

3 Small Sam

I'm not sure if his surname is revealed in the series, but he's mostly known as Sam, or Small Sam. And he is easily the best character. Name another character who has been captured by sickos (zombies, grown-ups, or whatever, ) and escaped, captured by cannibals and escaped, travelled through half of London, and involved in a prophecy. that's right. You can't. - Wolftail

Never read it just like this name laugh out loud. - Pug

What about his trusty sidekick, the Kid?

the kid?

4 Malik Hussein

MAJOR SPOILERS: Malik is not dead! He barely survives the young sicko attack in The Dead, but is left with a messed-up face. In The Hunted, he is known as Scarface, and helps look after Ella, but leaves Monkey Boy to die. Probably goes to show that you shouldn't judge people by their looks. - Wolftail

He's actually a sicko

5 Arran Harper

Spoiler alert: I was so upset when Arran died. Maxie and Arran are meant to be together! They both like each other but are/were (depending on where you are in the book) too scared to tell each other.

Arran is a legend but his only purpose is to give Maxie character development so he should be a bit lower on the list. When he was in a scene though, he stole the show.

One of the best group leaders in the series. It's a shame that he died. - Wolftail


6 David King

One of the most powerful leaders in the series. Evil, too, but that's for another list. - Wolftail

Kills poor Nicola

7 Achilleus

Funny, badass and loyal to his group, Achilleus is an outright legend!

One of the best fighters and characters. - Wolftail

Akkie is gay but still cool

Such good

8 Jester

I like him because he does something to remember all of the dead people he's known since the disease struck. - Wolftail

Magic Man from Adventure Time

He left shadowman for dead

I like him and shadowman

9 Jack

Saddest death in the series maybe apart from (SPOILERS) Dognut and Courtney. He was only there to develop Ed's character but he was one of my favourite characters in the dead non the less.

His death was so sad! - Wolftail


10 Maxie

She's been through a lot. - Wolftail

I like the way she is not a total badass and takes desisions wisely. She also has a lot of leadership qualitis and just shows girlpower. She can be very furious when she gets angry.

The Contenders

11 Paddy

So sad when he dies :'(

Idiot, killed himself

He's dench

12 Shadowman

My favourite (and most relatable) character

My FAVOURITE character by miles

13 Freak

Thinking about what everyone looks like in these books is very cool and both him and DEAKY are cool. If they were still alive in the end they could've been fighting with Achilles

14 St George

Also known as Greg the Butcher, this sicko is one of the best antagonist's of all time.


15 Blu-Tack Bill

He's secretly a genius and helps Jordan Hordern in The End.

16 The Collector

Though he was only in the Fear, he was definitely one of the most gruesome sickos in the whole series.

17 Harry Bamford

Honestly my favorite character until that ass Greg killed him

18 Johnno

Now this is a character no one probably remembers from the dead since his short appearance. Johnno in my opinion could have had a lot of character development. I thought he was gonna keep flirting with Frederique until should would turn him down. the ambush at The Fez was so surprising and unexpected and when I read that Johnno went down with the others, I was shocked. he should have had a better part in the series.

19 Blue

" she gets over Eds scary face not to mention dog nuts crew and Blue brookeelius it will never happen
