Live action Nickelodeon characters from sitcoms or general live action shows. Cartoon/ animated Nickleodeon characters will be excluded. Also live action Disney characters will also be excluded.

The Top Ten

1 Drake Parker - Drake & Josh Drake Parker - Drake & Josh Drake Parker (Drake Bell) is depicted as a laid-back, charming, immature, and womanizing teenager. Although he often appears unintelligent, his under-achievement seems to be caused by apathy and he has been known not to think before he acts (making straight D's). Drake has great interest in music, playing ...read more.

Still remains as one of the funniest Nickelodeon characters out there and in general made the show fun to watch.

2 Josh Nichols - Drake & Josh Josh Nichols - Drake & Josh

We all know Drake as the cool guy in Drake & Josh, but as for Josh, he's what you could describe with T.V. Tropes as a lovable dork. One thing that made me relate to Josh quite a lot more than Drake (both are still good in their own merits) was how even though Josh wasn't the coolest guy in the world, he was notably the more responsible and mature aspect of the brotherly duo. I could be laughing at Josh's own melancholy or feeling quite sympathetic for him whenever his brother Drake would drag him into trouble. Personally, I feel Josh deserves some more love for both his compulsive humor and him doing his best to be the responsible brother and not get into any trouble in spite of always being dragged into such. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He is the best live action Nickelodeon character. He's likable and generally is well written.

Drake and Josh was the only good live action Nick show - TwilightKitsune

I disagree but it certainly was the best live action Nickelodeon show.

It's spherical! SPHERICAL! - phillysports

3 Gibby - iCarly Gibby - iCarly

He's the best (DUN) aro-ound

4 Dana Cruz - Zoey 101

To be honest she was a TERRIBLE character that was always bitchy and annoying she was a badly written tomboy character that didn't add much to the show.

5 Simon "Cookie" Nelson-Cook - Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide Simon
6 Carly Shay - iCarly Carly Shay - iCarly

As a protagonist she was generally solid.

Icarly was the best - wheathansen

7 Sam Puckett - iCarly Sam Puckett - iCarly

She was essentially comedic relief but good comedic relief for the most part.

Uh... What Was I Doing? I Was Too Busy Getting A Bucket A Chicken - Stevenpenguin

I don't know she was just the best one here

She was awesome - WinchesterGirl26

8 Spencer Shay - iCarly Spencer Shay - iCarly

The most hilarious character in iCarly in my opinion - stinkyjaden

9 Cat Valentine - Victorious Cat Valentine - Victorious Cat Valentine was one of main character in American-teen sitcom Victorious . She was portrayed by Ariana Grande .
10 Crazy Steve - Drake & Josh Crazy Steve - Drake & Josh

The Contenders

11 Timmy Toot-Toot - Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide
12 Jade West - Victorious Jade West - Victorious Jade West (Elizabeth Gillies) is a frenemy of Tori from Hollywood Arts. She has a gothic sense of style—always wearing dark clothes with eyebrow piercings and different colors of streaks in her hair—and is the long-time girlfriend of Beck Oliver. She is very protective of her boyfriend and is known ...read more.

A sarcastic hot goth girl how the Hell could I not love her?!

Despite her being a mean girl she was a very comedic and interesting character.

Goth girlfriend, honestly. - KianaLexi

Big tiddy goth girlfriend

13 Vice Principal Crubbs - Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide
14 Coconut Head - Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide Coconut Head - Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide
15 Tori Vega - Victorious Tori Vega - Victorious Tori Vega (Victoria Justice) is the younger sister of Trina Vega, which makes her the youngest daughter of the Vega family and attends Hollywood Arts, a performing arts high school, along with her sister. ...read more.
16 Freddie Benson - iCarly Freddie Benson - iCarly

In my opinion he was and still remains as one of the best characters from the show.

17 Chase Matthews - Zoey 101 Chase Matthews - Zoey 101

Chase was a far more likable character than Zoey in the show and generally should've been the protagonist.

My favorite character from Zoey 101. - Eraser

18 Quinn Pensky - Zoey 101
19 Lewbert - iCarly Lewbert - iCarly
20 Ned Bigby - Ned's Declassifed School Survival Guide Ned Bigby - Ned's Declassifed School Survival Guide

Ned's Declassified was basically a live-action cartoon. The plots were all cartoony and the actors all acted like cartoon characters (in a good way). That's the reason why it was such a great and unique show. - phillysports

Ned was a pretty likable protagonist that did have a few moments.

Miss this show so much - Jonerman

21 Lola Martinez - Zoey 101 Lola Martinez - Zoey 101
22 Logan Reese - Zoey 101 Logan Reese - Zoey 101
23 Andre Harris - Victorious Andre Harris - Victorious

Umm because he's my brother

He practically made the show in all honesty and generally was entetaining to watch.

24 Gordon 'Gordy' Davenport - Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide Gordon 'Gordy' Davenport - Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide
25 Robbie Rotten - LazyTown Robbie Rotten - LazyTown Robbie Rotten (played by Stefán Karl Stefánsson) is a lazy man who continuously formulates feckless schemes in which he masquerades in a disguise to lure the residents away from their newly-active lifestyles. He passionately abhors the influence of Stephanie and Sportacus on the townspeople. A number ...read more.

yes indeed - Thicc_Neeson

26 Sportaflop - Lazytown
27 Bruce Winchell - Drake & Josh

Such a great weatherman, and such great hair! - Torchpost

28 Logan Mitchell - Big Time Rush Logan Mitchell - Big Time Rush

What I think many didn't see in this show is that it was really funny because it satirically and self ironically showed all the promotional moves of a manufactured pop group that doesn't write its own material. Also, like most Nick sitcoms of that era, it has this certain turbulent humor. - Martin_Canine

Not a fan of Boy bands but in general he seemed more intelligent then other members of BTR.

29 Kendall Knight - Big Time Rush

Again not a Boy band fan but he was a somewhat ok character.

30 Megan Parker - Drake & Josh Megan Parker - Drake & Josh
31 Walter Nichols - Drake & Josh Walter Nichols - Drake & Josh
32 Carlos Garcia - Big Time Rush
33 Michael Barret - Zoey 101 Michael Barret - Zoey 101
