Best Grand Theft Auto V Characters


The Top Ten

1 Trevor Phillips Trevor Phillips Trevor Phillips is a character from the game Grand Theft Auto Five (GTAV), a Mature rated game from 2013, created by Rockstar. He is one of the games 3 antagonists. He is the former friend of Michael DeSanta, who he was part of a bank heist with 9 years prior to the main plot. He is known for being more.

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.

I will show him for someone who doesen't know what is Grand Theft Auto

2 Michael De Santa Michael De Santa Michael De Santa, formerly Michael Townley, is one of the three protagonists in Grand Theft Auto V, along with Franklin Clinton and Trevor Philips.

It's Michael's story, Trevor wanted his old friendship in the wild while Michael had a family to take care for, so I don't blame Michael for all the thing.
Trevor is the most loyal but he should have understood that he can't just be a Psycho forever, but I actually can't blame him too cause he is so lonely he just wanted a ride or die friendship.
Franklin was the "Take the opportunity guy". He wanted the good life that's what he came for, also Frank gets the credit he deserves because he is the only one in the ghetto with a brain.
Lamar was the opposite of Franklin just like Franklin's siblings, they don't know much, they think that the street is the best thing for them, living the same broke life everyday while Frank wanted more form life.

However you can't judge any of them but you can learn very much from it.

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

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

He is the richest and knows how to spend his wealth. He’s more formal and wiser. Also he is the most good looking

3 Franklin Clinton Franklin Clinton Franklin Clinton is one of the three protagonists in Grand Theft Auto V, along with Michael De Santa and Trevor Philips.

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

Franklin should be the 2nd best. Mike just in my opinion is the center of attention and bosses everyone around.

When I'm him he always just has that extra bit that the others don't have

He is my favorite

4 Lamar Davis

He makes some pretty funny comments at times. - MetalFoREVer1228

This dude is funny

His funny lifeinvader profile:
"Occupation: Playa
Relationship: Playa" - ibaruah

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

I love his reaction when Michael breaks his T.V. and says go on a bike ride LOL - maloneyscott

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.

He's a pedo but he's funny - kjr

8 Wade Hebert

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

Come on Wade is hilarious.

All rednecks are funny.

He is cutee and I love him

I hate Lazlow -_-

10 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

The Contenders

11 Mary-Ann Quinn

Mary-Ann whines a lot but that's the thing that makes her so funny.

12 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

I did not know he was in V

A returner from Grand Theft Auto IV! - MetalFoREVer1228

Typo I didn't mean Regina I meant Devin. Stupid auto correct.

I like this character. - Consequently

Regina is an obnoxious brat.

14 Beverly Felton
15 Tracey De Santa

She could be quite annoying sometmes but she in no where near as bad as jimmy who drugged his father also she does love her dad in a way but don't show it and she is hot, one of the main reason I like her.

17 Steve Haines

This character suits my personality the most. - Consequently

20 Martin Madrazo
21 Amanda De Santa


22 Dr. Friedlander
23 Elisa Macallen

24 Dave Norton

He's so sympathetic and courageous. He reminds me so much of my history teacher and they look very alike.
His voice is music to my ears.

25 Wei Cheng

Stupid lame dumb

My favourite Chinese guy in the game. - Consequently

26 Solomon Richards
