Top Ten Mass Effect Characters

Who is your favourite character from the Mass Effect trilogy?
The Top Ten
1 Garrus

He can either be your best buddy as MaleShep or best lover as FemShep. His abilites are so OP that I always bring him on every mission in the entire trilogy. His character arc is fleshed out in a way that it makes me feel like he is a real person (or in this case, character). I'm honestly surprised that he isn't the main face of Mass Effect given that almost every ME fan can agree that he is the best character with a good story and voice actor!

The most interesting and best fleshed out character of the series with the exception of Shepard and is easily one of the most likable. And his combat build makes him always present on every mission my sentinel goes out on. He is Shepard's right hand man or whatever the turian equivalent if that fraise is. In my opinion, the series would not have been as successful if not for him.

People, this guy is just the ultimate bro. You know you would love a Garrus in real life. Too much broness.

How can we forget a great character like Garrus?

2 Liara

Ignore the guy that claims she's boring, Liara is well rounded, incredibly likeable and has a beautiful voice. If you play the games you will grow to trust her every word, the empathy and compassion she shows in every conversation, her deep passion for history and her usefulness in combat not to mention her excellent character development. The guy claiming that she is emotionless clearly hasn't played Lair Of The Shadow Broker, or even paid attention to her in 3.

Liana has the personality of a brick and speaks in a monotone that will put you to sleep. She is a dull character that only shows a glimmer of emotion when Thessia is destroyed. Other than that she is an emotionless robot. Talk and Garrus are far more interesting.

She's so faithful to Shepard, as a friend or a girlfriend, and she's the whole reason why the commander was revived in Mass Effect 2. She's the most loyal squad mate and an interesting character. Liara grows up a lot throughout the series.

My favorite character. She loves Shepard even if she isn't your love interest she is just awesome.

3 Tali

Young girl who is loyal to his family and her entire race. We see her grow as a person to eventually become more self assured, an admiral and the love she has for Shepard is cute and innocent. Tali is girl you take home to mom.

Tali has so many positive things about her: cool personality, loyal, cute, best MaleShep romance (in my opinion), a great voice and the singing scene. The best Mass Effect character in my opinion.

Although she is covered from head to toe, she is still by far the most attractive love-interest for Shepard, or because of it. Also, a good, naïve and cute personality only adds to her attractiveness.

It's my favourite character. Her voice is beatiful and actions are awkward due to her simpaty to shepard. So she is my favourite companion

4 Mordin

His death in ME 3 is pretty sad.

Best alien ever

5 Wrex
6 Shepard

I do not think that Shepard should be on this list. Yes he/she is the most important character in the series, but that is because we make him/her that way. There are just far to many variables in the character that a consistent ideal can be drawn from him/her to a point where we can pin the personality down and say "classic Shepard". This is what makes the character so great and what made the series the show-stopper it was and how the title shook up and raise the bar of the gaming world.

I don't see how Shepard is not number 1 on this list! Shepard defeated the Reapers for gods sake. Shepard is the greatest ME character ever! Shepard is so fearless and fierce it inspires me. Shepard is a complete badass. Granted, she's a terrific soldier (N7) and such a charasmatic and strong leader. She defeated the Reapers when no organic has ever done that. She will fight to the very end for what she believes is right even if it kills her and she lose everthing.

Shepard is so boss because she says and does whatever she wants and damns the consequences. Shepard is an amazing leader and friend. Her prescense just demands respect and loyalty! She somehow gets very difficult fighters to work together to be loyal to Shepard and the mission. Shepard takes the time despite being a great millitary leader to know every single person on the Normandy on a deep level.

She doesn't let anyone get in her way and she destroys her ememies with such fierce determination and strength ...more

Shepard shouldn't be on this list. It's not fair, and I'm sure the only reason she isn't at the top is because people didn't think she belonged on the list or because she was so obviously the best there was no reason to discuss it.

Renegade Shepard is hilarious and has the best lines in the game.

7 Thane

He unfortunately died in my Mass Effect 2 game. But I really consider him to be the best character from the whole saga.

This guy is awesome! Even his voice is awesome! And Thane has possibly the saddest death in the whole series!

Sexiest alien with the cooliest voice. Very spiritual and understanding and best femshep lover except for kaidan.

Thane is the best character In my opinion.

8 Grunt
9 David Anderson

Where would we be without Captain Anderson?

10 Legion

Legion themselves has really no personality, it's a geth. Legion flawlessly characterizes the entire plot of the game, and does an outstanding job portraying that to Shepard. He will be my number 1 no matter what.

The Contenders
11 Joker
12 Kasumi

I love her loyalty mission and possibly the sexiest type of catwoman of any video game

13 Illusive Man
14 Javik

Love this guy. Blunt and straight forward. He felt like a realistic character considering his species and background

15 Jack

She is hot and an all-powerful woman. She acts tough, but showing interest in her opens up a soft, vulnerable girl.

16 Kaiden

I don't understand the hate Kaiden gets as a character. He is one of my favourites

17 Miranda

She is beautiful and powerful. She can hold her own. Without Shepard wouldn't be alive.

She is so loyal! It's crazy!

18 Saren Arterius

He is so badass until his death.

19 Ashley
20 EDI
21 Samara

She's powerful and dangerous, but faithful to you all the way through.

22 Samantha
23 Aria T'Loak
24 Zaeed
25 Kelly
