Best Family Guy Characters

The Top Ten
1 Stewie Griffin Stewart Gilligan "Stewie" Griffin is a main character from the animated television series Family Guy. Obsessed with violence and matricide, Stewie is the youngest child of Peter and Lois Griffin, and the brother of Meg and Chris Griffin.

He deserves the number 1 spot but for me either him Peter or Brian can be in this spot. I would have Quagmire at 4 not ahead of Brian. Everything Stewie does has meaning to it, but he is messed up in so many ways. He is extremely funny, entertaining whatever' you want to call it and no doubt is a big reason why this show has been on so long. The him hating Lois all the time gets annoying at times and sometimes they overdo it a lot. I have no problem with him being number 1 however. The scenes with he and Brian together are very humorous. Vote for any of Peter Stewie or Brian

All of Stewies jokes are awesome! Usually I only watch an episode if it is Stewie-centric, but I watch Peter sometimes. You know the people who complain he should kill Lois, well, did you not see the end of the Stewie kills Lois saga? He is definitely not hell-bent on destruction anymore, but he still has his destructive moments. I feel as if he is the only character who changed for the better. At least now they gave him a chance to be a baby for once in the recent episodes. Even if he is a destructive, gay, and adorable baby.

I love his character, but, I think Seth is wrong - Stewie isn't gay, but, he is Bi - because he is attracted to both sexes. He probably isn't the monogamous type, but, when they try to push him being a homosexual, it doesn't work except as a one off joke, while his relationships with girls (women) are much more revealing. I have nothing but compassion and love for Gay people, but, Stewie is Bi.

Stewie to Jeremy, the babysitter's boyfriend

Ha! I got your hat! Take that, hatless! Now go back to the quad and resume your hackey sac tourney! I'm not gonna lay down for some frat boy bastard with his damn Teva sandals and his Skoal Bandits and his Abercrombie and Fitch long sleeved, open stitched, crew neck Henley smoking his sticky buds out of a soda can while watching his favorite downloaded Simpsons episodes every night! Yes, we all love Mr. Plow ! Oh, you've got the song memorized, do you? SO DOES EVERYONE ELSE! That is exactly the kind of idiot you see at Taco Bell at 1 in the morning! The guy who just whiffed his way down the bar skank ladder!

That was hilarious

2 Peter Griffin Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

He is one of the funnier characters in Family Guy (until Season 4 at least) and he manages to make me laugh sometimes.

Don't get your panties in a twist, but he's a better father than Homer. He doesn't strangle his family members and he did have a soft side for Meg in the older seasons, which is nothing more than air nowadays.

He and Patrick are the types of idiots that I like, they manage to make me laugh and show that sometimes a braindead character can make you burst into laughter.

Based on him being the main character on this series, he takes stupidity to a whole new level. I remember when he sat on Tom Tucker and pretended to be a child and pulled that off splendidly. Seth does a great job portraying him. When you think family guy who definitely think of Peter and he can create a humoured moment with anyone. The fat man is hands down hilarious

By far the funniest character in the entire show, everything he says is hilarious!
Peter's insane shenanigans make me laugh more than any other character!
Him, Stewie, Brian and Quagmire are the funniest characters in the show!

Peter Griffin is my favorite character and spirit animal as well as Stewie and Meg. I love all 3 of them, but I love Peter the most. His hatedom on this site and are the most toxic groups of people online. He deserves better character development plots and continuity arcs to redeem his character.

3 Glenn Quagmire Glenn Quagmire, often referred to as just Quagmire, is a character from the animated television series Family Guy.

He's all about sex but he's a great friend and really cares for his family. He protected his sister and is willing to accept his dad. He always helps Peter, Joe, and Cleveland when they need help. He's a compassionate man that loves cats and is selfless. Not to mention he's a cool pilot.

I would put Quagmire above Peter without a doubt. His character is very funny and brings to surface taboo themes. I guess this is the reason why people of "good manners" hate him. You don't need to be an astronaut to like spaceships etc. , so you don't need to be a necrophile or a pervert of some kind to like Glen Quagmire

Glenn Quagmire may have committed some awful deeds that would absolutely land him in jail but somehow it makes him one of the best characters. Like Peter his antics are what makes Family Guy

Glenn Quagmire gets all of the attention from the hookers, strippers, and all of his friends and he kinda hates Brian for the all the crap he's ruined in his life which I kinda hate for him to hate Brian bc Brian is just a dog that talks like bro what?

4 Brian Griffin Brian H. Griffin, popularly known without his middle initial as Brian Griffin, is a fictional character from the animated television series Family Guy.

The first three (or four) seasons of Family Guy had this character as the Only Sane Man of the show. He is one of my favorite characters in Family Guy, along with Stewie and it's best when the two characters are forced to work together in the "Road to..." episodes.

Sadly, Brian had lost all his cool from Season 5 (or 4, depending on your opinion) and onward and is now a hypocritical, obnoxious who thinks only of himself and nobody else. As a result, his two-episode long absence from Kenny-syndrome (pretty much, the character is killed off, like Kenny in "Kenny Dies" the reason for that name is because Seth had probably taken the idea from that episode and thought it would be 'original') would make you lose all sympathy for him and you'd instead wish him dead.

He's still a great character nonetheless and I hope that his original personality will return (unlike a certain show about a yellow-skinned family).

He Stewie and Peter are hands down the funniest characters on this show. I understand everyone liking Peter and Stewie the best but with Brian you literally get everything. A dog who stands and walks always a dog who smokes and drinks. He is the funniest character not being a complete idiot. Lots don't understand his jokes which is why he's 4th. Quagmire is funny he's extremely funny but ahead of Brian are you serious?

This is a difficult one we have here, He is definitely in my Top 5 for the first 7 Seasons, He was mediocre-okay in Seasons 8-9, Was pretty bad in Seasons 10-11, Than got unbearable after he was revived. No matter how bad he got in the most recent seasons, He is still in my Top 5 for Seasons 1-7 alone.

Brian is by far my favourite character, although he seems to have lost the charm he had in earlier seasons. You can still see the dog we were first introduced to in precious few of these later seasons. I just hope that Brian will turn back into the dog we all know and love.

5 Adam West

He's not my favorite character, but I really think he should be higher up the list. He's really funny, and I like how he's so random, and is his own character. He's awesome.

My name isn't Adam We... Or is it? Who am I? What number did you call? Don't ever call here again!

I guess I showed him! Nobody messes with Adam We...

Adam: "I'm being a rascal and knocking on peoples doors then running away!"
Lois: "Then why are you still at the door?"
Adam: "This is my first house, I'm not very good at this."

One of the few characters who I can't say didn't have a big drop in humour throughout the show.

We'll all miss you Adam.

6 Joe Swanson

He's like Cleveland in the fact that he's not completely insane. He's one of the calmer characters on the show even with all he's been through

Way funnier than Quagmire, Joe's random outbursts are really funny and one of the few characters who didn't turn into a totally retarded jerk. I like cleveland too.

Joe: So sweetie, you ready to go get some new notebooks and protractors and slacks?
Chris: I want blue jeans.
Joe: You're getting slacks!

I feel like he's one of the more under appreciated characters of the show.

7 Chris Griffin Christopher Cross "Chris" Griffin is a fictional character from the American animated television series Family Guy.

He's so perverted, idiotic and that's what makes him great! I love how he is often ignorant of the things going on around him. Seriously, I think he's better than Peter.

Say whatever the hell you want about Chris, but he's adorable. I really hate all the hate he gets. I think he's an amazing and funny character, and I love his and Stewie's brotherly bond

Chris provides the comic relief, and I absolutely love stupidity on a T.V. show. Chris is the epitome of stupid on that show, and it's hilarious!

I love all of the griffin kids except meg. I think Chris still has his idiot charm but he's gotten a lot smarter from his first 3 seasons

8 Herbert the Pervert

Hey, where ya goin' kids? I just wanna talk to ya, why don't you come over to my place and we can have a couple of Fruit Pies and then go in to the back room and play Crazy Snakes He He He!

Laugh out loud, love his musicals, so jacked up. I would hate to be around someone like that, but he is the best character hands down.

I laugh my ass off whenever he shows himself. I love every episode with him and I try every day to imitate his voice.

I know what boys like, I know what guys want, I know what boys like, boys like, boys like me!

9 Lois Griffin Lois Patrice Griffin is one of the main characters of the American animated television series Family Guy.

She's not always funny but when she's funny she's hilarious! Her outbursts are gold, particularly when they're aimed at Peter. Despite me being a mid-30s make I find her the most relatable character. Probably because she's the most normal one surrounded by idiots until she goes crazy and snaps and becomes a psycho herself. On top of all that, for a cartoon, she's pretty hot.

Lois is so funny. Peter and Stewie are good too but they have too much love already. Lois has raised Chris and Stewie. She loves Stewie so much and I like when Stewie keeps saying mamma and Lois gets pissed. She has a unique voice, but it is whiny...

Boss: Where did you go to college?
Lois: Groceries.
Boss: Where did you work before this?
Lois: Groceries.
Boss: Okay, this is a trick question, Groceries?
Lois: I'm hired.

I feel that a lot of Peter's shenanigans wouldn't be as funny if not for Lois' disapproval of them.

10 Cleveland Brown

Cleveland is usually the voice of reason in Peter's friend group he's a pretty chill guy. I don't get how he's friends with Peter still after falling out of his bathtub so many times thanks to Peter's shenanigans

The black man who knows how to live an interesting life. In a good way of course.

That character got a spin-off.
I agree with him.
The Cleveland Show.

I Think he is the best one of them all that's why he has his own show.

The Contenders
11 Meg Griffin Megan "Meg" Griffin is a character from the animated television series Family Guy, voiced initially by Lacey Chabert, thereafter by Mila Kunis.

She's abused and ridiculed by her family yet still loves them and really does a lot for the show since she's basically the punching bag (unfortunately) Although I'd really like to see the writers pursue a different path for Meg other than being the butt of the joke. I'd rank her higher than she is.

She's easily one of the kindest characters, and she takes absolutely insane amounts of abuse from everyone, every day. And yet, she still marches on. She takes the abuse from the world and she refuses to give up. She still looks for someone who will like her, she'll call out her family when they are being horrible, and more often than not, she's shown to be the one to offer kindness to her family when they are in need of it.
She's still flawed, for sure, but unlike many of the other characters, her flaws aren't a result of her own maliciousness. She's desperate for affection and attention, clingy, but all of this stems from the abuse she's forced to take.

I love Meg, why can't she be a little higher on this list? I know Stewie or Peter is gonna be at number 1 or 2 (they deserve it since they really is the character that what makes "Family Guy"). But I want Meg to be up there too, she deserved to be loved by fans, she's very kind and sweet... and sad, I know there's an episode where she become mean but she earned it and she deserve to hurt people around her that bullying her for years in her entire life! Even like that... she still one of the sweetest and the nicest character in the show that deserve to be loved.

Meg, is the one who is the hero in the family. She keeps the house from falling in to jeopardy. Stewie is a great character. Brian can have his likeable moments and unlikeable moments. Chris is one funny character. Peter can't be counted out. Lois is a total shrew to be honest. Lois is the worst character with the way she has been to Meg. Meg getting crap from her family was funny before. But it's become less funny ever since she has stood up to her family!

12 Death

Wish they had him back

I love death's sarcasm!

13 Consuela

Consuela is awesome. Get Death, Adam West and Herbert the Pervert out the way otherwise I'll get Consuela herself to argue with you until you agree.

I'm really surprised that I was the first one to put her up here. Remeber when there was a cop party and they left her in charge of traffic! FUNNY!

Consuela is like no... No... No and has a good accent. She goes 155 instead of 1125 get it? One 1 and 2 fives! Consuela is also funny on the valentine one where she says ci, ci! Also on bigfat where she goes to the curling olympics

Peter: Consuela you're fired
Consuela: No No I stay. I stay I Clean
Peter: Get out of our house we just fired you
Consuela: No I clean

14 Ollie Williams

Tom Tucker: Diane can't be with us today. Where is Diane, Ollie?
Ollie: She dead!
Tom: Thanks Ollie

The black news reporter who shout everything fast.

Why isn't this guy number one?

This guy is very funny

15 Ernie the Giant Chicken

He do be fighting doe

Come on in the top 5

Come on family Guy one more fight
Peter vs Ernie maybe they can use him in the series finale

16 Dr. Hartman

He's hysterical. He may often be incompetent and goofy as hell but a lot of his scenes and one liners no matter how short are great.

'Relax... I be a doctor...' His trial was one of the funniest scenes of the show!

Do you know how expensive medical school is, no? , well its probably pretty expensive

Every scene he is in he's hilarious.

17 Kool-Aid Man

I like the time in the Simpsons Family Guy crossover when they are in the courthouse and after everyone says oh no! It takes like a minute and then Peter gets a call and Kool Aid Man says yay wrong Springfield

18 Jillian Russell

I love dumb blondes in cartoons! Jillian for the win!

Laugh out loud, she is so dumb, but that's what makes her hilarious, plus she's hot

19 Evil Monkey
20 James Woods

He is stupidly funny whenever he falls for the trap with the candy TWICE!

Sadly. Diene killed him.

21 Tom Tucker

He's a pretty main character, he deserves to be higher!

Woah, so an underrated character! No character has a mustache like his

I really like tom tucker

22 Connie D'Amico

I hate her! Connie is a self centered brat who hates Meg because of her looks, she doesn't see the inside of Meg. She is so dumb

23 Carter Pewterschmidt

First of all, it's spelled "Pewterschmidt." Second of all, say hello to on of the best characters on Family Guy! A rich old man, always terrible to Peter in hilarious ways (such as making him eat a pinecone before he'll help him) and trying (and failing) to be a good dad.

How did anyone even vote for him. Worst character on the show. Period.

He's definitely my favourite character.

24 Bruce

He's such a happy go lucky kinda guy. Easily one of the nicest characters in the show

The purest and most enjoyable character on the show.

I like lots of things. Including Ginger Ale

25 Greased Up Deaf Guy

Who doesn't like him?
