Best Characters from The Enemy Series

The Top Ten

1 Edward Carter

I love him more than anything

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

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

2 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?

Second to Shadowman, Small Sam is the bravest character in this series. He's survived hell and back and is determined to find his sister Ella.

3 Dylan Peake

My favourite character by 1000 miles

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

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

4 Malik Hussein

He is great survivor

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 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

7 David King

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

Kills poor Nicola

8 Achilleus

Such good

I think Achilleus is the best character as of his bad ass acts and he is my over all favourite character and he isn’t gay he just kissed just John to make him embarrassed

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

One of the best fighters and characters. - Wolftail

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

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.

She's been through a lot. - Wolftail

The Newcomers

? The Kid

The Contenders

11 Shadowman

My favourite (and most relatable) character

My FAVOURITE character by miles

12 Harry Bamford

He is the best straight out brawler in the hole book series he deserved more than he got from his death

There is no way in hell Jester should be above Bam

Honestly my favorite character until that ass Greg killed him

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 DogNut

Honestly, I think DogNut is the best character of the series.
His life was cool, but his death was downright awesome.His last words though...damn that touched my heart.
Guess what my gamer's tag is...yeah u got that right!

15 Paddy

So sad when he dies :'(

Idiot, killed himself

He's dench

16 St George

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


17 Blue

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

18 Blu-Tack Bill

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

19 The Collector

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

20 Bam

Bam is a very underrated character. He was very light hearted and positive.

His death was very tragic

21 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.

22 Big Mick

He is the second best straight out brawler in the book aside from Henry 'BAM' Bamford big mick also deserved more than he got from his death
