Top Ten Funniest Characters from Brooklyn Nine-Nine

PositronWildhawk
Brooklyn Nine-Nine needs to be seen if you feel that your life lacks humour. It is one of the funniest things that I have seen, and I keep watching it in the hope that these highly amusing characters keep me laughing.

The Top Ten

1 Captain Ray Holt Captain Ray Holt

Yes, he is such a good sport and an amazing detective/ genius. I love the fact he was great when Jake won the first Halloween bet and then totally got him back. He is proud and kind and never gives up on those he loves. He brings out the best in Kevin and all of the detectives. He may be a little strange when it comes to having fun, having been left out and subjected to racism and homophobia, but this really has strengthened his character in many other ways, despite his lack of social skills sometimes. I am really fond of this character and got really worried when he got taken away as captain but he is back and stronger than ever. I definitely agree with this order of best characters. He is my number one!

I love everything about him. He has all the fundamental constituents of humour rolled into one; sarcasm, quirks, deadpan, and so on. Without him, the sitcom would fall apart. So if it's your first time watching the show, look out for the crazy Captain. - PositronWildhawk

He is the glue of the cast. Whenever he's not at the precinct, the episode seems to not be as entertaining. His dry humor and quirky behavior really make the show.

2 Administrator Gina Linetti Administrator Gina Linetti

Gina's desperate to make herself the centre of attention, and I think the irony in that is that the writers give her a small role when compared with the other main characters. Because she is really funny in a confused and bizarre way. - PositronWildhawk

Gina is hilarious! Need I say more?

YASSS I love her she is so hilarious and awesome

Gina is gold!

3 Detective Jake Peralta Detective Jake Peralta

I love all the Brooklyn Nine-Nine characters, but Jake is the funniest for me. His main source of humor is his childlike behavior and immaturity, which provides plenty of hilarious moments (Capt. Holt: "This file says, 'Undies, Dirty'." Jake: "So I won't confuse them with 'Undies, Clean'.") The sharp writing and Andy Samberg's hilarious delivery make Jake one of the funniest sitcom characters I've ever seen.

The main character always has to be funny in a sitcom. And, well, he is. A child-like but funny character who's just there to kill off any boredom you may have. Just let him make you laugh and grin. - PositronWildhawk

He is very funny. I never watched that show but I have heard of it - DynastiSugarPop

YAS!

4 Detective Rosa Diaz Detective Rosa Diaz

I love the spooky vampire in black leather that is Rosa. There's humour in her scary look, her mystery and her deadpan approach to everything. - PositronWildhawk

I want to be her, and still be functional in regular society.

She's just such a badass in this show!

5 Detective Sergeant Terry Jeffords Detective Sergeant Terry Jeffords

He is absolutely gorgeous in every way! He was great in Everybody Hates Chris, and he's great in this! He never ages! He brings the show the humor it needs, and he is a really good father to his children!

Terry carrying the Vulture over one shoulder and literally dumping him in the trash - funniest, most badass Terry moment OF ALL TIME!

Couldn't possibly agree more. Terry showed true heroism there. - PositronWildhawk

Hilarious guy. I want to see more action scenes with him, because that is where the slapstick humour of the show needs to develop. - PositronWildhawk

6 Detective Charles Boyle Detective Charles Boyle

The clumsy yet determined, shaky yet focused, idiosyncratic yet distinctive detective who just gives you a sense of pleasure in this show. Everyone likes him, and for good reason. Well, except Rosa. - PositronWildhawk

7 Detective Amy Santiago Detective Amy Santiago

She's really good. I love how she jumps to every chance of shining; the competitive and often sarcastic nature that keeps you in. - PositronWildhawk

Don't like her.

8 Detective Norm Scully Detective Norm Scully

Disgusting, in the fact that the entire underside of his foot is a huge orange wart, and lazy, given that he spends half the time asleep while his body odour accumulates, and being unable to move four feet without stopping to catch his breath, but without that, the show would be missing something very funny. - PositronWildhawk

9 Detective Michael Hitchcock Detective Michael Hitchcock

Come on, this guy is funny. Bizarre humour that would normally be unexpected, but funny. - PositronWildhawk

10 Doug Judy Doug Judy

Rosa, Rosa, Rosa... Ohhh Rosa

The Contenders

11 Adrian Pimento Adrian Pimento

Pimento should Rank Higher. The episode where he bets money on the dog show really puts him in the the top 5 in my opinion.

Should be higher. Why? Think of ep 21 of season 4

12 Detective Warren Pembroke Detective Warren Pembroke

God owed me a favour - Fralee16

The vulture - judo8alex

13 Fire Marshal Boone Fire Marshal Boone

More competitive sarcasm. Would love to see more of him. - PositronWildhawk

14 Agent Jack Danger Agent Jack Danger

He thinks that the USPIS are the ultimate heroes of America - that aside, he is actually kind of an idiot himself. He's hilarious.

15 Kevin Cozner Kevin Cozner
16 Lynn Boyle Lynn Boyle

Gotta love Stephen Root, in all his many shapes and forms - Billyv

17 Madeline Wuntch Madeline Wuntch
18 Seth Dozerman Seth Dozerman

20 Caleb the Cannibal Caleb the Cannibal
21 Sheriff Reynolds Sheriff Reynolds
