Best Characters from Stephen King's It


The Top Ten

1 Stanley "Stan" Uris Stanley

The most psychological and complex of all characters from the realization of fears to the logical approach all through the very end and the major climax of his inability to face the horror - has the most compelling and powerful ending as ends up committing suicide in classy style in the bathtub! What an amazing character and by far the best in the franchise hands down from start to finish!

Stan is the most realistic character and feels like a real person through the story; his realizations that analytical and logical outcomes aren't the only possibilities in life are astounding and the fact that he can't accept this is a primary reason why he commits suicide in the bathtub. Stan was so amazing as a storyline plot device character and love him for his denial and end!

This was the most real character in the whole franchise. The realization that Stan could not accept the existence of IT as an adult as he had as a child makes it amazing. And what a way to go out; this guy was best hands down.

Best death scene and best psychological struggle makes Stan the best!

2 Richard "Richie" Tozier Richard

The best out of all the losers

Richie is amazing

He's awesome!

3 William "Bill" Denbrough William
4 Pennywise the Dancing Clown Pennywise the Dancing Clown It (sometimes capitalized as IT), more commonly known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, is the titular main antagonist of the novel, its 2017 film adaptation and the 1990 TV adaptation. It was portrayed to be a shapeshifting and malevolent entity millions (possibly billions) of years old, and with no more.

Well, duh!

5 Edward "Eddie" Kaspbrak Edward

Eddie is one of the best characters in the show because his personality shows that not everyone is perfect and no one is exactly the same. He's also just awesome.

Eddie is one of my favorite literary/film characters. I relate to him very much. Grazer's portrayal of the character in the 2017 adaptation was great.

6 Beverly "Bev" Marsh Beverly
7 Benjamin "Ben" Hanscom Benjamin
8 Michael "Mike" Hanlon Michael
9 George "Georgie" Denbrough

Not including Pennywise, he's my 2nd favorite character - FloydtheCat
