The Top Ten
1 707/Seven/Luciel Choi

He's literally the cutest guy out there, the one that caught my eye the first time I played this game. I just bought deep story and it's sooooo worth it. It makes me a bit sad that he's gonna get cold but I'll continue adoring him.

1) I love redheads.
2) His personality I get along with him best.
3) Everybody's all about him being funny, and yes I agree, but damn. All the things he went through just for his brother, and then ten years later only to find out that his brother is still suffering? The lad needs love and all he keeps doing is hide his loneliness behind that joker mask.
A tip on getting the good end on his route is to regularly acknowledge and openly recognise his commitment to the RFA -- That's what he does! He's done so much and no matter which route, he always prioritizes others over him. And everyone in the RFA pretty much dismisses him. In Jumin's route, (spoilers) when they were at the enemy headquarters he told Yoosung to run away without him if anything happens, and it's likely a lie when he said he had an escape route planned. In his own route, he made sure that the player keeps her distance because he knows himself as "dangerous".
4) I would seriously fly to the moon with this guy.

2 Zen/Hyun Ryu

I had to keep reminding myself that Zen is just a character so many times throughout the route. As the route progresses towards the party, he gets even more loveable. (Talk about husband material). I personally found his voice the most pleasing and his words are pure honey. He will for sure win anyone's heart. <3

Before I say anything about him - if you're honestly only voting for Zen is because he's hot, I want you to go shove a stick up your ass. Moving on, Zen is a great character who genuinely cares for the player no matter what route you take. He knows he's good looking, sure as hell, but that doesn't make him a bad character - he's spent all of his childhood being brainwashed into thinking he's ugly and not good enough, give this man a break and let him finally be happy about himself. Zen is sweet, caring, protective, and would honestly doing anything for the player. He's just... amazing? Words can't describe it honestly.

3 Jumin Han

The other character whose route is only accessible in Deep Story mode, Jumin Han is the rich man whose father owns the big business known as C&R. Jumin can come off as cold and emotionless, but he loves the MC just as much as the others in their respective routes. Don't ever say anything bad about his cat, Elizabeth 3rd. She is precious to him.
His route is truly a rollercoaster. Just remember that he is doing everything because he loves MC. Just because he deals with situations differently doesn't mean he's a bad guy.
It is recommended to play his route second-to-last.

10/10 you could totally read the urban dictionary with him. Loved him after learning some of his values and how supportive and insightful & rational he can be; wasn't interested in him at first but he turned out my favorite.

Him projecting "x" onto his cat, his drinking habit, workaholism, starting impulsive cat projects, keeping his feelings inside, his parents issues. God, It really hurted me seeing his loneliness and how insensitive the RFA can be to him. Such different but also relatable-in-a-way character, would totally marry. But his NE makes Jumin better justice with him being out of his comfort zone, Cheritzs stop making his character so centered towards materialism ffs

4 Yoosung Kim

The innocent one of the group, Yoosung Kim has never had a girlfriend before. He is a gamer and plays his favorite game, LOLOL, nonstop. He is still in college, but his gaming life makes his grades suffer. A lot.
His route is overall very sweet. First love turning into eternal love. Just remember this: you are you and don't let Yoosung or anyone else say otherwise.
It is recommended to play his route after Zen's because this one has a bit more spoilers for other routes.

I haven't finished yet, but Yoosung is my favorite so far! He is literally a puppy! Cute, innocent, and loyal. That purity made it that much hotter when flirting with him and getting to see his romantic/ possessive side. His Rika obsession was annoying, but it made sense. Also, I think it represented well how many people have a hard time separating their past relationships from their new ones. His route made me cry :( but I was so happy we got married and he recovered! hehe (even tho we marry most of them but his hit different..) I also just find myself relating to a lot of what he says and his worries, so that's also probably a reason.

5 Unknown

Terrifying at first but I couldn't help but be desperate to understand him better. I get so sad seeing the pain and torture he endured his whole life. I don't pity him though, he has a lot of strength and love, it's just been twisted. Untangling that is hard but worth it.

Unknown is the person responsible for bringing the MC to the RFA. Without a doubt, the antagonist of the game. While I will not reveal his true identity, it is definitely unexpected.
An interesting character through and through. He, too, deserves a route.

I feel he was treated terribly and tricked. None of it was his fault. He got the short end of the stick since he was young and I feel all he ever wanted was love. I shall give unconditional love to him because he deserves it

6 Jaehee Kang

The only other girl in the RFA, Jaehee Kang is Jumin's chief assistant. Jaehee can come off as cold and stern, but in reality, she is just an overworked, stressed employee who barely gets any sleep.
Jaehee is also a fan of musicals, and a big fan of Zen's. But be aware: she is not a rival for Zen's heart. She respects him as an actor.
Her route is the most different. Not just because she is a girl. Her route can be seen as both romantic and platonic. Jaehee says many things that suggest that she views MC as more than just a friend. However, LGBT is a very iffy topic in South Korea (location where game was created), so it is pretty much left up to the players as to whether or not Jaehee and MC are in love. But Jaehee said it herself. "Love between a man and a woman is beautiful...but...a friendship between two women can be just as powerful."
Her route should be the third and final Casual Story route played because it works as a great gateway into Jumin's character, whose route is the next suggested route.

7 V

V is by far one of the most underrated characters in mystic messenger. I say this because many people may view him as "boring" or "bland" just because he doesn't immediately profess his love for the MC in his route. In reality, though, V is actually an extremely complex character who yes, does have faults, but he recognizes them and tries his best to fix them.

so basically v deserves all of the love and literally anyone can fight me on that thank you for listening to my ted talk

Oh, V. The man who was in love with Rika. The one who never shows up when he is needed.
V is a photographer whose photos are auctioned at the RFA parties.
After Rika's death, however, V has been very distant, only talking to 707 and Jumin most of the time.
V's passion for the RFA is undeniable. Though his character may not seem the best, the Secret Endings, in my opinion, redeem him.
One can only hope for Cheritz to give him a route.

8 Elizabeth 3rd

A Shame she doesn't have a route. Cats lovers like Elizabeth as much as Jumin and Seven, we deserve some bonding moments with the queen too.

I'm more of a dog person, but hey, she's cute! And she deserves her own route.

Elizabeth the 3rd is amazing. I wish there was a route for her.

9 Vanderwood

The one chatroom where he has Seven's phone was one of the most pleasant surprises I've had in a while. He deserves his own route, dang it. And darn me for liking the one non-romanceable character the most.

I love how he secretly cares about Seven a bit even if he threatens him all the time and acts like he loathes him.

707's 'maid'. Doesn't get much attention until Seven's route, but is mentioned throughout the others.

10 MC/Player

The player of the game. The main center of attention. In other words, you. MC's personality is dictated by your actions and choices, so pick them wisely!
Also, does not have any eyes. How is she supposed to see all the pretty boys?

MC doesn't have any eyes and she is the center of attention in the game. She is the one that the players play.

I mean, what am I supposed to say? She's me.

The Contenders
11 Ray

He is just so innocent and cute... I feel terrible about what happens to him but I love all of his personas equally. He just loves the MC so much it is so adorable. I just want to keep him safe.

I recently finished his route and honestly he was cute and perfect for me as Ray but once he is one with Saeran and has found his peace he is the best. he is very likeable and didn't deserve what he went through.

I have not played his route yet but from what I've seen he seems nice with a psychopath side so why not?

12 Rika

Rika deserves more attention because without her, I doubt that Mystic Messenger would of even existed. People do gain sympathy for V when Rika abused him, which makes it more interesting and draws the readers in, normally resulting in hate towards Rika. V and Rika were also the founders of RFA. Without Rika, the MC would of not get caught up in this mysterious wonderland and get to meet the characters. Give her credit... She also plays a vital role... If people love Saeran even if he abuses others, can't you also love Rika?!

First off, I would like to clarify that I am not saying that her actions are justified, they are not. She did a lot of horrible stuff, irregardless of how terrible her past was. Now, the reason I like Rika, is because I think they did a pretty good job on her character. She's a really good villainess, and I enjoyed seeing her story and what really happened and all that.

13 Longcat

Long cats route was so touching and has truly earned a place in my heart. The game did a amazing job on their character and I truly love them

14 Driver Kim

He is a KONG! Jumin can't live without him because then Jumin would be in Jail for his driving skills

Driver Kim deserves more appreciation like seriously.

15 Rordon Gamsey

How can I not vote for him? He's the literal king! He should have his own route

Our lord and savior

Lowkey grandpa dad

16 Tom

My good friend tom

17 Tomioka Giyuu

Need his own route

18 Lisa

Okay Lisa is a minor character and deserves way more love. She is honestly so cute, I want one. The cats in this game are so cute, I love them so much. More people need to love this cute feline.

19 Oil Prince
20 Sally
21 Echo Girl

If I remember correctly, she reminds me of an annoyin' OC I made up with a friend, but FAR WORSE, trying to ruin ZEN and his career, if I've got it right. This OC might be annoying, sure, but that's it. Maybe. Leave ZEN alone, Echo Girl. He's mine.

The one character I'm pretty sure everyone can agree is scum. Zen did not deserve any of the stress you put him through you self-serving brat!

The mistake of the game

22 Zens Fangirls

Traitors and buddies.

23 Saejoong Choi
24 Mr. Chairman
25 Sarah

Side character in Jumin's route.
