Top Gotham Characters


The Top Ten

1 Jerome Valeska

He was supposed to be The Joker.

What can I say, besides, BEST JOKER EVER! (I don't care what you say he's my Joker). He has so much character development you almost feel sorry for him, while being creeped out at the same time. Abused by his mother and family, never loved, it makes him relatable. The mannerisms, the look, the laugh, the movement, he's just outstanding. Cameron Monaghan is just perfect for the role. Hold on to your hats folks, CAUSE YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET!

He has great character development, one of the best Jokers ever. (I don't care what people say, he's my Joker)

Remember there's nothing more contagious than laughter! HAHAAHAHAAHAHA!

2 Edward Nygma

Quite simply the best. Even when truly evil he keeps your sympathy. Fun refreshing, really clever. Steals every scene. I loved him so much when he was good I didn't want to see him go bad. Then he did and it was somehow better!

Nygmakins Love No More Nygmobblepot

He has one of the greatest charector developments in the show!

I never truly enjoyed Edward Nygma I always thought he was bland and the most beloved versions of him ( the animated series) seemed to have one characteristic: Smug, however on Gotham they make him an interesting character. He starts out kind of annoying it seems he mind have a social disability, Slowly throughout the series he changed into a more cold and calculating character. After his first murder his mind becomes a labyrinth He is lost in his insanity. I love how they make Edward very similar to Norman Bates. Changing his occupation to a Crime scene investigator ( Ala Dexter) was brilliant. I think that his crimes are the perfect middle between over the top and grounded in reality. They stayed true to character. The Riddler wouldn't,t be done justice in a Nolan Movies and in the Schumacher verse his robberies involve s little to no intelligence. His crimes in Gotham fit into the burtonverse. He also works really well as a criminal mastermind (Hush). His plan to frame Gordon was a ...more

3 Oswald Cobblepot

Simply the best actor

Robin Taylor is the perfect guy for the role. Makes him seem like the kind of guy you could mess with and then when you least know it, you're dead - tequila

Should be the number 1...he is THE KING OF GOTHAM

Should be in first place! I simply love Oswald and everything about him!

4 Harvey Dent Harvey Dent Two-Face/Harvey Dent is a fictional villain from DC Comics. Harvey Dent was one of Gotham's most trusted citizens until he had acid poured on his face making him go insane and become a criminal by the name Two-Face. In film, he has been portrayed by Billy Dee Williams in Batman, Tommy Lee Jones in Batman more.

Even though he is not two face yet he does sometimes show aggression just like two face and also has the two headed coin two face uses

5 Sofia Falcone

She is played by crystal reed in season 4

Just because of the actress?

Amazing actress. Stunning too.
Perfect for the role

Not my favorite but I enjoy her cunning and unpredictable character, seems interesting in my eyes.
The actress has nailed the role, as a result of that a pretty large part of the fandom seems hates her (Sofia Falcone not Crystal Reed)

6 Mad Hatter Mad Hatter
7 Jeremiah Valeska

He's just so unpredictable and insane. At first he seemed to be a stable and friendly ally to Gordon and Bruce, but then in reality he was even more evil and ruthless than his brother. I think if jerome were still alive he would be scared of the jeremiah we see today

Awesome character and twist to the whole gotham series, feels a lot like the criminal joker while jerome feels like the psychopath joker
For those who don't know, there are 3 different jokers in the comics

8 Butch Gilzean
9 Selina Kyle (Cat)

Selina Kyle is a loveable teenager who is just trying to survive. I cannot wait to see her as Catwoman

She is the most cute and love able characters in the series

I love this chick! She is the best character. Her and Batman are the best! - BryVonMonroe

She should be at least number two. shes the queen of it all!

10 James Gordon

Jim Gordon is the best character by far. With the same morals as Batman what's not to like. He's conflicted. Barbara left him. Depression. Leslie Thompkins loves him, and the feelings mutual. Guilt. Bullock was willing to kill him to save his own neck. Betrayal. Selina lied about the Wayne killing. Rage. People are constantly telling him to lose the Wayne case. I just love his will to keep on going. Gary Oldman was great and I loved him in the Arkham games and even the original Tim Burton movie was all right but this is the best portrayal ever. Or JK Simmons could be excellent. Hopefully he manages to keep his series going for a few more seasons. Tell Nygma to piss off, and I'm even more pleased

He's my cinnamon bun

He is best.
He is standing for justice.
He is standing for truth.
He is a cop that fights with crime with his everything.

How Oswald Cobblepot can be 1st? James Gordon must be the first on the list. - OnurLegends

The Contenders

11 Alfred Pennyworth Alfred Pennyworth Alfred Thaddeus Crane Pennyworth is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, most commonly in association with Batman.

Absolutely bloody peachy mate

I really like this version of Alfred. He is a very strong fighter and he can be quite amusing.

The picture you have is wrong by the way - SeanW

Absoulute badass

In Batman and Robin, Alfred is useless. In this serie, he is a badass! He trains Bruce and he is stronger than a lot of vilains - Olive855

12 Victor Zsasz

The creators behind the series did a really great job with handling Zsasz.
They definitely changed his character but it turned out to be potentially the best portrayal of Zsasz in any DC related media.
What makes Zsasz such a good villain is that sometimes he'll go on a deadly killing spree, but then he'll have a hilarious moment and so it adds some layers to the character as you never can tell what he's thinking.



Great acting from Anthony Carrigan!

13 Bruce Wayne Bruce Wayne Bruce Wayne is a fictional character appearing in the American comic books published by DC Comics. He is a wealthy American playboy, philanthropist, and owner of Wayne Enterprises. After witnessing the murder of his parents Dr. Thomas Wayne and Martha Wayne as a child, Bruce swore vengeance against more.

I actually Like Gotham's Take on Batman's Character.

14 Professor Hugo Strange

Japanese? Cool

15 Harvey Bullock

Come on, Harvey is the best! He's humorous, interesting, and has great development. His character has become a much more positive person since the beginning of the series. It's just ridiculous that Fish is higher on this list. She's one of the most irritating characters on any show I've ever seen!

16 Barbara Kean

She's hands down the best character smart and beautiful as well as deadly

I love her sfm she's just perfect

She kills everything at the moment shes cool

Top 8? What a joke... She's one of the worst and most hated characters on T.V. right now. Where's all of the sane voters?!?!

17 Fish Mooney

You've got to be kidding me. - NoobTuber

Just an annoyance and an eyesore...Top 5 SMH, what's everyone thinking!

Well, she's the most well-done villain.
Cobblepot is a close second, but he doesn't have the charisma.
I don't get all the hate Fish gets. Honestly, she's an over-the-top character that needs an over-the-top performance.
I don't know what bitches are thinking.

18 Professor Pyg (Lazlo Valentin)
19 Ivy Pepper

Oswavy Best Couple

20 Headhunter (Wendell)
21 Victor Fries (Mr. Freeze)

Fries x Firefly Love

22 Bridgit Pike (Firefly)
23 Tabitha Galavan (Tigress)

Tabitha Galavan is the best character because

1. She's quite the Charmer
2. She turned Selina Kyle into Catwoman.
3. Although evil in Season 2, I noticed that her nice side was as nice as any other characters by the end of season 3 and all of season 4.
4. Oswald Cobblepot is the most evil Gotham character after what he did to Butch and Tabitha.

24 Carmine Falcone
25 Dr. Leslie Thompkins

Dr. Thompkins is just so awesome. She makes Barbara look like utter in comparison. You want her to marry Gordon and have a happy life with Oracle as her child and James Jr. Not the best outcome for your kids, but I just think she deserves better

So annoying I just hate her the only moment she was intersting was when she took the virious and became Villain - mazigh

26 Jonathan Crane (Scarecrow)

Really cool take between the dark knights and arkham asylum

27 Jervis Tetch

Should be higher

28 Don Salvatore Maroni

He is italian

29 Ecco
30 Renee Montoya
31 Commissioner Loeb

Don't like him that much. Dickhead

32 Valerie Vale

Meh. Never liked Vicki

33 Gabe (Penguin Henchmen)

He's just a real chill looking character, like a big fat teddy bear, especially when he danced with penguin's mother.

34 Talon
35 Lucius Fox
36 Kathryn Monroe

Meh good character all together but not great acting.

37 Nathaniel Barnes
