Helga is a great character, despite her "angry" exterior. If you've watched the show, you realise why she is so mean. Also, she likes Arnold because he was one of the few people who noticed her.

She may be the popular character of the series, she does have a dark past of how is it like being neglected by a family in a favour of an older sibling. Also she probably wants to beat the shins of other people excluding Arnold is the reason why she kept her obsession secret.

Helga maybe the one who bullies Arnold the most but she secretly loves Arnold, and that makes a very interesting character de sine, bulling a person will loving him at the same time.

She is the best character in the 90's of Nickelodeon, she is do funny and awesome, she can beat up any boy in the neighborhood, she is tough and strong, hilarious and the prettiest girl in the show, and plus she's even better than Arnold.

2 Arnold Shortman

Arnold is by far the best character on the show. He's the most sincere, sweet, caring, and honest person in the show. He deserves the world and nothing but love and respect.

Arnold is so optimistic, despite his parents being gone. You know he's one of the best characters in this show.

I love Arnold! His sweetness and care for people is what I love the most about him! I want a friend just like him!

Very nice kid. He gives good advice to people he likes and dislikes. Helga is also a good character

3 Gerald Johanssen

This guy is hilarious, it is also the black series, all copied her hairstyle is very Marge Simpson

He is the coolest guy on the series! I would love to have a friend like Gerald! He’s helpful, dependable, cool, and really nice!

4 Phoebe Heyerdahl

I just Love Phoebe. She is just so awesome and the Episodes where Phoebe is a major Character are the best.

Phoebe is way better than most of the characters in the show and a far better character than Helga

I don't know why but I always loved Phoebe growing up. She was just the cutest thing ever.

She is my favourite character.

5 Phil Shortman

"I've got duct tape and I'm not afraid to use it! "

Funniest character on this show, period. Arnold always goes to him for advice. Sometimes, it's good, but most of the time it's just not the kind of advice he was looking for; still makes for a good laugh though, and a lot of times, Arnold's able to make something out of it.

Gramps is the funniest

Phil is the man!

6 Gertrude Shortman
7 Rhonda Wellington Lloyd Rhonda Wellington Lloyd is a fictional character from the 90s Nickelodeon cartoon Hey Arnold. She's generally known for being rich and stuck up. Along with that she cares very deeply about fashion. Her best friend is Nadine. She generally hates people that are "geeks" and refuses to be around them or ...read more.

She's unlikable all because of the writers of Hey Arnold episodes so they just had to portray her as a snobbish jerk.

Love rhonda, she's beautiful. Like her hair

Honestly, she just slays at life.

Rhonda is a stuck up brat

8 Harold Berman

This kid is hilarious. I was gonna vote Arnold, but since this is kinda low, I gave this character some support.

I like Harold cause he has abig heart he's not really a bully(sometimes) he's just a big teddy bear

9 Sidney

My favorite type of episodes are the ones where Sid is the main character.

His paranoid tendencies are hilarious to watch.

Sid is one of my favorite characters!

Sid is so cool

10 Stinky Peterson

Stinky's book report in Stinky's Pumpkin:
"This dang book was a real long one and it was really hard! "

Other than Grandpa, definitely the funniest character on the show.

"Aw gee! You mean I ain't in the top ten but that Oscar feller is? That really bites! "

Stinky can be a bit rude at times, but he's still a nice guy so I think he's my favourite.

Stinky is just the funniest character, he is amazing.

The Contenders
11 Brainy

Loved the gag where Helga would punch him after he'd snuck up behind her.

The Derpy Hooves of 90s cartoons.

12 Lila Sawyer Lila Sawyer is a fictional character from the 90s Nickelodeon cartoon Hey Arnold created by Craig Bartlett. She's generally known for being nice and kind to her classmates which disgusts Helga Pataki. She also has a crush on Arnold's cousin Arnie. In the series she's revealed to be poor next to being ...read more.

She's relatable in that it's common for people to resent the success of those better than them

I hate her. She's so darn annoying. Although I do feel a little bad for her, she's very poor.

13 Ruth P. McDougal

Arnold's crush before Lila and Helga

14 Oskar Kokoshka

Quote from "Weird Cousin": But he's an idiot! Oskar's one of my favorite characters and has the best laugh! Ehehehehe!

15 Eugene Horowitz

I love Eugene. He's one of my favorite characters!

He's unlucky and gets hurt in every episode he's hilaripus

I always felt bad for him.

He’s such a sweet guy! He deserves to have loads of friends! No matter what short comings befall him, he never blames anyone for it! While aronold sees accidents as his fault, eugene never blames him & sees aronald as a nice giving guy & enjoys & appreciates what he does for & with him dispite getting hurt all the time! He’s so sweet, & doesn't deserve to be so unlucky as he is! 😢

16 Mr. Hyunh

Best tenant of the boarding house. This guy was hilarious and had a lot of depth.

17 Sheena Annapotato

A gentle kind character

She’s the tallest girl and student in her class but despite not ever having an episode involving her she’s an extremely gentle, sensitive and caring girl.

18 Patricia "Big Patty" Smith
19 Ernie Potts

The construction worker. He's cool.

20 Tish Wittenberg

The coach's fiery wife

21 Stella Shortman

Arnold's mom adds a lot of emotional weight to the story

22 Thaddeus "Curly" Gammelthorpe

How come Curly's only here? He deserves to be WAY higher. He's hilarious to watch, completely insane, and just because he does the worst things, he's redeemed himself before. I especially like when he dumped Rhonda at the end of "Curly's Girl" because he realized what he was putting her through.

23 The Pigeon Man
24 Suzie Kokoshka

Putting up with Oskar takes lots of patience

25 Nadine

I like Nadine she's cute and funny I can understand
Why Rhonda is her best friend
