Best Girl Meets World Characters


The Top Ten

1 Maya Hart

Maya, in my opinion, is the best character on the show. Why? Well, let me explain. Maya has been through so much with her father leaving. I've been through it and it is hard. I'm glad Shawn is now there for her because she really deserves it. Riley, her best friend, is there for her always. I appreciate that Riley always wants the best for Maya, although Riley can get on my nerves sometimes. Her loyalty for her friends is amazing. Maya would do anything for any of her friends if any of them got hurt. With Farkle, she wanted to beat up Billy for making fun of him. With Lucas, she was able to stop him from actually beating Billy up and turning into Texas Lucas. Riley, there's no need for explanation. But that's just my opinion...

For starters, Sabrina's acting completely made this character come alive. While Maya was well-written, a mediocre acting performance could've ruined it. Also, while Maya isn't perfect, she will do anything for Maya, and that's what makes her such a good person. And she doesn't mope and complain about any of the badness in her life, she tries to overcome her obstacles. Also, her and Shawn no doubt have the best relationship in the show.

She is loyal and selfless despite the fact she has issues of her own. She's not afraid to address the fact she has problems and yet she doesn't sulk about it. She is a super relatable character. I just feel that she could've had a lot more credit from her group of friends. She is "the tough one" the "bad influence" and that isn't going to help her at all in her personal journey. She needs to just embrace her good side. #MayaxLucas

I love Maya hart. she is the reason I started watching the show. and she has been through hard times but still is self she is beautiful in many ways and she is the best in the show she kept it alive

2 Riley Matthews Riley Matthews Riley Matthews is the main character and title character of Girl Meets World. She is the fourteen-year-old daughter of Cory and Topanga Matthews. Riley and August Matthews are Cory and Topanga's only children, of which Riley is the eldest. Her father, Cory Matthews is her ninth grade history teacher more.

Riley is a kind loving girl and is protective of her friend Maya.. Just see what she did in GM Texas part 1, she sacrificed her relationship with Lucas just so Maya can be with him. She helps people cheer up.. and without her, the show would've been miserable just seeing Maya's problems and her evil side all the time. Riley puts a smile on everything and she has a solution to almost every solution. She supports for strong causes and she has inherited Topanga's smartness and she is able to understand the struggles of life. She is also an angel in real life as she is so kind and is now best friends with Sabrina Carpenter... a.k.a Maya. She helps friends for example when she proved to her father that Maya is a good friend in the first episode. I think she is a really good person and you should stop complaining... It makes her a real beautiful person... and it would be my dream to meet her or Sabrina in real life.

Riley's a dummy and she's weird and stupid and ugly I hate her she's too obsessed with dumb Lucas she's really a bad person she's always just doing whatever she wants she can't do that she's just a little girl I hate her she's really bad to her parents and family to and she's absolutely HORRIBLE to Maya Riley's a huge JERK

A lot of people think that Riley is a total goofball. Well of course she is her father is Cory Matthews and on Boy Meets World Cory would be goofy all the time to the point which would aggravate Shawn and Eric to death. But Riley does have some shades of Topanga as well especially when it comes to her perspective of love they go by the same morals as it were. To me Riley is a perfect combination of both Cory and Topanga put together and no one could deny that!

Riley is the best GMW character ever. I'm not a Maya fan,so yeah. Riley is cool & is a good friend to everyone. *sighs* The show is mostly about Maya & its too annoying. Go Riley!

3 Farkle Minkus Farkle Minkus

Farkle is by far the only character with the best character development in the show. He actually evolved in the 3 seasons this show was given and if there was true love being elicited in the story, it was all Farkle. Despite having craziness around him, he is the kindest person and the most human.

Who doesn't like Farkle Minkus? He's so funny and he's also very brave too because when he found out that he has a symptom of Autism he didn't even freak out about it which proves that he is brave and strong. I also loved the episode where Riley, Maya, and Lucas defended him that was so nice of them to stick up for their friend!

He is fiercely loyal to his friends and odd in a really good way, the word for him would be unique.

He is FARKLE...duh

4 Lucas Friar

I don't think you're hot. And please, be more of your delinquent self! I prefer that over who you are now.

I don't think he's that hot, though I typically don't go for looks.

He is so hot and has a great personality he is seriously perfect

He thinks he can get in the way of Riley's friendship with Maya.Like,oh,sometimes I want to have talks with just us and were the most important relationship here.

5 Cory Matthews

Personally I think he was better in Boy Meets World.

He's funny and really cares for Riley and Maya

Cory and Topanga suck in this show. The acting style is unrealistic, and just plain bad. I realize the writers of the show aren't helping you out much, but you can't blame them for horrible acting.

Should be 1, Maya 2, Farkle 3, Topanga 4, Lucas 5

8 Auggie Matthews

Auggie bores me

9 Zay Babineaux

He's so funny and he isn't involved in that stupid love triangle.

Isaiah babineaux

He is such a good friend to lucas

Zay is really cool and funny and deserve to be a main character :D

10 Ava Morgenstern

She cracks me up! A good rush of reality on this lovable but highly un-realistic show.

The Contenders

11 Uncle Shawn

AT first he may not seem to like Riley. I love Riley, but in the end Shawn finally gets to see something from Riley that he's never seen before. Remember ¨You're Cory with Topanga's hair! ¨ He is very nice and caring for the Matthews family Topanga and Cory and Alan and Amy. So I'm going to add Shawn Patrick Hunter because to me there's something special about him, and we could be twins. Not that I look like him, I don't. I'm just saying we are a lot alike, like to sleep in school. Both are really weird, it just doesn't end whether he's 12 or 35. What I'm trying to say is I love Shawn and nobody can change that whether he's on more episodes of Girl Meets World or he becomes the biggest nobody there ever is/will be.

It's Shawn, people. Though he is still awesome, even if I secretly want him to be with Angela still.

I honestly think he is mysterious
