Top 10 Diary of a Wimpy Kid Characters

The Top Ten
1 Greg Heffley Greg Heffley is the main character and narrator of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series written by Jeff Kinney.

The movies had to tone down how much of a jackass greg is in the books. I also hope that this is the movie greg who is number one and not the book greg

He's the classic protagonist, so of course he is number 1! My drawings always consist of the doodles featured in this series, and my figure is Greg. He can be a mean jerk sometimes, but he's still hilarious and awesome!

Greg is a bit of a jerk. But if you think about it for a while, he goes through a lot. Such as his family mistreating him, and so every often, he gets bullied by jocks in his school.

Greg was pretty mean, mischievous, rude, arrogant, cynical, wimpy, lazy, selfish and obnoxious in the books, but in the movies he's slightly more likable and at times relatable.

2 Rodrick Heffley

Hey guys who put the new Rodrick there on the picture? No disrespect to Charlie Wright but he just isn't Rodrick. I'm sure he could be great as another character but he has no place as Rodrick. The only good thing about this Rodrick is his Avenged Sevenfold shirt.

Rodrick is better in the books than he is in the movies because he is always tormenting Greg. In Book 2, Rodrick Rules he stole Greg's journal which I liked. He is in every book at some point and he is a great character. He is funny and I hope he gets a big part in Book 13.

I haven't watched this movie in a while, but a couple reasons why he's my favourite is because not only is he really funny, but he's also an awesome drummer. I love how he torments Greg all the time.

Rodrick is a awesome drummer.
And he is so funny in Dog Days when he was in the pool and the man got him out of the pool and did the mouth thing that was Hilarious.

3 Rowley Jefferson

What a retard. Super brainless and gulliable. Dumber than Patrick star, acts like a 2 year old and likes Joshie, some dumb singer for 4 year old girls.

Rowley should be No. 1. I found him annoying in the book and took credit for a lot of Greg's ideas, but I loves him in the movies cause he is a little fatty (my fave part was when he sat on the spiked ball manny gave Greg I'm Rodrick Rules, whilst wearing undies on his head)

He's enjoyable to read, his book character is great, especially in the earlier books. He's a little under-used in the newer books.

However I hate his interpretation from the movies, they make him more restricted and childish in the movies.

I think Rowley should be number 6 because he sometimes does not make sense and makes it not funny.

4 Frank Heffley

I really like Frank as a character, because it's so hilarious when you see him trying to interact with the kids or always ending up screwing up something!
Top five Frank Heffley Moments
5. FPOO!
4. Greg:DUCK! DUCK! Frank:Where? Where? *Branch right in front of him*
3. Friend = Good!
2. Mom says I need to hug you guys...
1. Lets you and me have a talk... FRIEND. XDDD

Why would he throw a brick at Greg? That's dangerous! Then again, Calvin's dad threw tools at Calvin, who is SIX, so maybe it's not that bad.

Um, my only question is why are there so many pictures of him nearly naked, such as when Greg scared him when he stepped out of the shower.

When he threw a brick at Greg I almost peed my pants laughing.

5 Holly Hills

In the books she was in, she was pretty great. I just wish we saw her in the later books.

Shes the best character in the movies. It's so sad that they have to find a new actor for her though.

Holly is cute and makes Greg go crazy. She is nice and has pretty hair.

She seems pretty and nice and I'd LOVE to be her friend.

6 Susan Heffley

Worst Mom Ever. No regard for her sons emotions. Ignores what Greg thinks. Spoils Manny, although he does not deserve to be a favourite. He's a monster

She's a terrible mother. In the meltdown book, she forced Greg to go outside in the snow, not to mention that she gives Manny whatever he wants, no matter how ridiculously expensive it is. The only good thing she did is do Greg's project in hard luck.

Honestly, I feel like she's a TERRIBLE mother! If you watch the The Long Haul's movie, you'll see what I mean! And you'll also see a "Phone Vault" in The Deep End, which made me DESPISE her and be thankful that my mom isn't like her!

She always spoils Manny and never believes Greg and rodrick. Also, she put a bar of soap in Greg's mouth. Poor Greg could have died.

7 Grandpa

Ok, here we go. I'm one of those people that write long responses so be prepared. Grandpa is just the most iconic and corky in the books although I did not enjoy him in the movies. I don't think they portrayed him right. It may just be me but, in the movies he just seems a little off. But he makes up for it in the books. He is very old fashioned in the way he does things and brings you into Greg's perspective of his grandfather and makes you wonder if grandpas as silly as he seems.

Believe it or not! This side character was much funnier than the actual ones

Laugh out loud. He thought that joke was so funny!

I like Greg's Grandpa especially since he keeps dating. Its funny

8 Manny Heffley

He is the worst character. He's maybe cute on the outside, but he's a selfish devil on the inside! He is such a spoiled brat and gets EVERYTHING he wants! He doesn't get in trouble at all, even if he deserves it! He is also such a big liar. He also makes a stupid excuse that he's only 3 when he breaks Greg's things! He's like 5 or 6! He also makes the whole family suffer because of his stupid imaginary friends. He called Greg "Ploopy" and never got in trouble for it. But when Greg called Manny "Ploopy", he got in huge trouble. He did many bad things and never got in trouble for it. He drew on Greg's bedroom door with a permanent marker, broke Greg's video game console, hacked Greg's video game account, broke his mom's glasses, and also only set the T.V. to watch HIS favorite shows! He also did worse things like turning off the electricity and freezing his family and getting his hands a box jellyfish for his pet and almost killing everyone!

Manny is the worst character he is selfish evil greedy. He let his family freeze to death in cabin fever and I wish he would die.

He is an amazing and almost the funniest character in the entire series. He should be on the 3rd or 4th position. This hurts my feelings

No! He's a selfish brat who never gets in trouble. He almost froze his entire family in cabin Fever book.

9 Fregley

He is among the weirdest book characters I have ever read about. In Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, he actually put his own booger on a piece of paper to someone else. No wonder Greg fainted! Why is Susie Heffley always trying to set up a play date with two boys who have nothing in common? Especially when one is afraid of the other. I mean, I understand that she would want to help Greg make new friends when he's fighting with Rowley, but out of all the possible candidates, why would she chose the one who Greg would least like? It doesn't make any sense. Also, why does Greg always go to Fregley's after he fights with Rowley? He is clearly choosing the wrong kid. In the first Wimpy Kid movie, Fregley asked Greg and Rowley if they wanted to help him name his "secret freckle" which, y when way, was disgusting. He is probably dangerous. More than the Mingo Kids, by a lot. I'm 90% sure his parents keep an electrical fence, too. And who. can blow a bubble of gu m with his belly button? Is he like part ...more

Pretty decent character.

I think he has autism

Fregley is creepy

10 Patty Farrell

Patty Farrell might be the worst diary of a wimpy kid character next to manny she literally bullies Greg at school in the movies, and she got Greg an F on his geography test by telling the teacher to cover up the state capital map too! Patty deserved to get that apple thrown at her head at the play.

In the movies, Patty is mean and she thinks Greg is an idiot. She is such a brat.

She sucks. Who added her?!

I love her attitude and how interesting she is and how evil she can be

The Contenders
11 Chirag Gupta

A minor character in books, Chirag's character is brought charm and charisma through the movies.

He's hilarious and makes a good character. Should be higher up.

'I'm a human being too!'

12 Gramma
13 Gammie

She's the best and funniest old lady I have ever seen.

14 Uncle Charlie
15 Silas Scratch

He's not technically a character, nor do I like his story arc.

Creepy and cool. I was hoping he was real but still he is a cool urban legend made by frank (gregs dad)

Frank was seriously clever as heck for this.

He deserves a horror movie!

16 The Heffleys' Pig

Because of this evil narcissist, Manny now rules the world.

The Pig is fine, it's potty-trained at least.

He caused chaos and bit Greg.

17 Leland

He's is a big Nerd but I like him.

18 The Giving Tree guy

Literally he looks like a burglar!

19 Tyson Sanders
20 Gary Heffley

He can't marry without messing up.

21 Mrs. Jefferson
22 Heather Hills

Heather should be higher

I love holly hills

23 Ethan Bradberry

What the... Spider-Man is not related to Wimpy Kid.

Why is there a picture of Spider Man?

24 Mr. Nern

He's nice to Greg.

"I am your friend"
