Top 10 Diary of a Wimpy Kid Characters

The Top Ten

1 Greg Heffley

In the books he is kind of a sociopath and a jerk,
In the trilogy He is actually an alright guy that seems nice.
In the long haul movie he is a brat.

I think he is kind of dum but well he is the main character but I think he is a number 5 because he is in all books and in cabin fever I like the teacher who stands on his chair he is more funny then Greg I don't know why he is the funniest character but I know that Greg is not the right character to be on book number 12 he is just not the right character to be on character number 1 in books and in movies why!

[In my opinion] all of these characters...(wait for it...wait for it...)

SUCK! Yes...most of them are idiotic jerks who only care for themselves, and are dishonest and rude to their friends, family, etc. These books are for six-year-olds who are learning to read, not 11-year-olds who need to challenge their brains. I started reading these books at eight, and instantly hated them! I don't like books with pictures! They annoy me. I like to imagine the pictures in my head, and DO NOT require photos to guide me.

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!

2 Rodrick Heffley

Seriously! How is Rodrick second best diary of a Wimpy Kid character. He was terribly mean to Greg in Rodrick Rules. Not only did they have a physical fight he made Greg go in the back of his truck with the instruments and no seatbelt. He could get arrested for that! '😡He's also a jerk who hangs out with really shady men rock-star wannabe's and couldn't care less about school as long as he can rock out with Bill Walter, a 35 year old man who doesn't have a job and doesn't bother looking for one while still living with his parents! Also in Rodrick Rules, Rodrick is left alone with Greg one day and he decides to invite a whole bunch of teenagers to the house and make a huge mess and to make sure Greg doesn't interfere he locks him in the basement.

A jerk but cool in a way, The trilogy adaptation is the best version of him, But in the Long haul movie he is Patrick Hockstetter and Kylo Ren's sister.

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.

3 Rowley Jefferson

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.

A friendly kid who is a naive, stupid scaredy cat. Gotta give him credit.

4 Frank Heffley

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.

Evil, he's secretly Darth who knows what? He's so mean that he's like a Sith Lord

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

5 Holly Hills

Hot and guilty of charge
This is why she is my favourite character, because she makes greg go crazy

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

She advices greg about siblings in a proper way unlike the dumb susan heffley

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

6 Susan Heffley

More well-rounded character in the movies than the books. This could be said of Frank as well

She is so preachy it's funny because that's literally all she does also GREG SUCKS

She gets better in the later books, in my opinion.

She is notso nice to greg and rodrick and nice to manny

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

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

Laugh out loud. He thought that joke was so 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

We don't care about your feelings. And this isn't your list. Go remix it and stop whining.

He's a spoilt brat and he never gets in trouble! He also has $100 dollars

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

I love him he bowed bubble gum with his belly he is so funny

"I bet I can find your tickle spot"

Wanna see my "secret freckle"?

10 Patty Farrell

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

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

Thank the lord she is last. She's a jerk to Greg :-(

Patty, Patty, is a fatty, has a face, just like a ratty

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.

He is very funny I'm a human being too that's very funny

HEY! I AM A HUMAN BEING TO!
So funny...makes me laugh out loud

12 Gramma
13 Gammie

I love how everyone is calling everything in her house

She is the best old lady ever

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

14 Uncle Charlie

Uncle Charlie is the cool uncle that gives the best Christmas and birthday gifts (well not in Greg's case)

15 Silas Scratch

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

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

Frank was seriously clever as heck for this.

He just comes crawling out of the toilet

16 Leland

He is an excellent character in Greg's diaries

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

17 The Heffleys' Pig

I wish Greg would shoot the pig

18 The Giving Tree guy

Literally he looks like a burglar!

The older version of Shel Shilverstein

EPIC HAHA Who would want a video game without a T.V. =3

YESS SHEL SILVERSTEEN!
I love the person that added this, I laughed so hard at that part.

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

Why is there a picture of Spider Man?

This is not a DAWOK character

20 Nate Wright The Big Nate comic strip's main character. Nate is 11 years old, he is an aspiring cartoonist, drummer, underachiever, and plays funny yet overdone pranks on Prank Day (the last day or 2nd last day of school). He is somewhat self-absorbed, believing himself to be irresistible to women despite repeated ...read more.

Who put him here probably some od woman who doesn't even read wimpy kid.

Ok who put him here! Probably some gullible grandma who buys her kids Ratatoing and What’s Up! Balloon To The Rescue and thinks Nikki Maxwell, Greg Heffly, Nate, Georgia and Rafe are all from the same series
