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 main protagonist of the entire book/movie series. How can you not like him? He's a lazy middle school kid with a high metabolism.

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

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 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.

2 Rodrick Heffley

A selfish jerk with a bullying demeanor and gives no respect for anyone except for elders. Rodrick is my favorite character.

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.

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.

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.

The best friend of Greg. A childish, playful, "awesome", "friendly", kid. Rowley's my favorite character in number 3 after Rodrick.

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

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

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.

Worse than Frank. She babies Manny, forces Greg to do things, and overlooks Rodrick. She also makes up lies so that one of the three can do something. Worst mother ever.

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

He had a party in Old School and barely even got punished for it. Lol.

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

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

'I'm a human being too!'

12 Gramma
13 Gammie

I love how everyone is calling everything in her house

She only appeared in 2 books. Not that major of a character tbh.

She is the best old lady ever

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

14 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

15 Uncle Charlie

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

16 The Heffleys' Pig

I hope the Heffleys find him soon. But since he didn't appear at all in Wrecking Ball, and only made a cameo in The Deep End, it's very unlikely.

I wish Greg would shoot the pig

He caused chaos and bit Greg.

17 Leland

He is an excellent character in Greg's diaries

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

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.

19 Mrs. Jefferson

She's actually NICE to Greg!

20 Tyson Sanders

He pulls his pants All the way down when he uses the urinal

21 Ethan Bradberry Spider-Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics existing in its shared universe. The character was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko, and first appeared in the anthology comic book Amazing Fantasy #15 (August 1962) in the ...read more.

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

Why is there a picture of Spider Man?

This is not a DAWOK character

22 Gary Heffley

I don't think much of him to be honest. All I think is that he really needs to get a serious wife. Else, he's gonna be alone eventually.

Uncle Gary from The Ugly Truth

he is so ridicuolos

23 Heather Hills

In the movies she was just a spoiled jerk

Heather should be higher

I love holly hills

24 CannonBall
25 Mr. Nern

Maddox: I think he has autism

He's nice to Greg.

"I am your friend"
