Top Gotham Characters


The Top Ten

1 Oswald Cobblepot

This character represents the triumph of pure intelligence and penetrating insight into those around him. If he wasn't evil, he'd be great. As it is, he is irresistible to watch. I find myself wishing every moment of the show's time was spent on him. Great creation!

After seeing his bit part in the walking dead where his throat was slashed after having his head cracked open like an egg, it's nice to see him take the well deserved lead... Well one of

He was the best character up until what he did to Ed. That was deep cruelty, and selfishness. He's still a good character but definitely not that high up anymore. - NoobTuber

Brilliant portrayal of a young penguin by Robin Lord Taylor. He even looks like a penguin...

2 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

3 Selina Kyle (Cat)

So smart and perfectly neutral

4 Bruce Wayne Bruce Wayne

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

5 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.

6 Barbara Kean

She's so annoying. I bet everyone voted for her just because she's "hot". She's annoying and deserves the death penalty. - NoobTuber

She kills everything at the moment shes cool

I love her sfm she's just perfect

Screw yall haters, she was one of the best characters, plus she hot asf

7 Jerome Valeska

I love his character, he is entertaining and intriguing, I always want to know what he will do next. Plus he had charisma the size of the Empire State building, a cult dedicated to him he came back to life, not as much as Fish but still very impressive.

He is one of the craziest, most entertaining and interesting characters I have ever seen

He is crazy, He is funny, He is adorable, yet he scares you to the point where you are intrigued to watch and learn what he will do next. And lets not forget the fact that he is drop dead gorgeous.

He is the Joker

8 Sofia Falcone

She is played by crystal reed in season 4

Just because of the actress?

9 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!

10 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.

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

The Contenders

11 Edward Nygma

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

Fascinating character development. I love his emotion!

Should be the top ten, now.

Y is he not higher why

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 Tabitha Galavan (Tigress)
14 Carmine Falcone
15 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

16 Mad Hatter Mad Hatter
17 Don Salvatore Maroni

He is italian

18 Harvey Dent Harvey Dent
19 Ivy Pepper
20 Renee Montoya
