Best Grand Theft Auto V Characters


The Top Ten

1 Trevor Phillips Trevor Phillips

I've played the game a lot more now than when I initially made this list, and I can see why Trevor is such a fan favorite. He is the very definition of Grand Theft Auto. He doesn't care about the laws and has an attitude to back it up. Great character. Props to Rockstar. - MetalFoREVer1228

Kinda shares my story wanted to be an airman and some stupid lady told me I wasn't capable of joining now I'm all psycho ( just kidding about the psycho part )

Trevor is really the only character that is relevant in the Grand Theft Auto games... He is insane and has violent tendencies. He fits in as a fantastic character, especially in a Grand Theft Auto game.

Plays a different Grand Theft Auto style

2 Michael De Santa Michael De Santa

Michael is definitely one of the most interesting characters in any Grand Theft Auto game. He has everything he ever wanted yet he almost WANTS to go back to being a criminal. He's a character who's very relatable and hard to hate. - dylanowen

He's one of the most interesting character in the Grand Theft Auto V, when his family leaved him, I played more this character, because I was really interested, when his family back - Orbitovsky

Though Trevor is probably the most fun and entertaining this is the best character overall

His surname is reminding about last Christmas.

3 Franklin Clinton Franklin Clinton

This dude is pretty outspoken. And if he's gotta do something, he does it. - MetalFoREVer1228

He's not happy in the ghetto and he's not happy in a mansion. every time you switch to him he's either in the city or asleep. He has no character development.

He makes some pretty funny comments at times. - MetalFoREVer1228

5 Chop

Him mating with another male dog during one mission. First dog in the Grand Theft Auto series. Him being referred to by Franklin as: "Little homie"

If you don't like chop you have something wrong with you

First dog in Grand Theft Auto. I guess Franklin would say:"Here Chop, here boy! " and whistle.

6 Jimmy De Santa

Jimmy is my least favorite person on here. He sucks and he just sucks plus I don't like how he treats Michael.

"My brotha from anotha motha! Well I hope, 'cause my mom was kind of a skank back in the day." One of the funniest lines in the game from Jimmy to Franklin. - MetalFoREVer1228

7 Lester Crest

What is it about the nerdy characters that makes them a little funny. - MetalFoREVer1228

Lester is why you should never make enemies with a hacker regardless on how weird he is.

8 Wade Hebert

I think he's a fan of Insane Clown Posse for some reason laugh out loud

Wade is hilarious, he's one of the best characters, sadly, he's only a minor character. - danielwotsits

He's so funny. Come on he's hilarious.

9 Simeon Yetarian

This dude is funny. His accent kinda adds to it. - MetalFoREVer1228

"You tell me exactly what you want, and I will very carefully explain to you why it cannot be." - Simeon Yetarian - Consequently

10 Packie McReary

My favourite character in grand theft auto v (yes, even better than Trevor, Michael and Franklin). He would make a great protagonist in a grand theft auto game. If it wasn't for him, Niko wouldn't even have kidnapped Gracie. Packie helped Niko a lot in grand theft auto iv and makes a great gun man in grand theft auto V. - DunnaNunnaBatman

I always liked Packie especially on Grand Theft Auto 4
