Top Ten High School Musical Characters

The Top Ten
1 Sharpay Evans

Sharpay is HANDS DOWN the best. Love her completely, she was always fabulous. She basically inspired me my entire life and was always my favorite character.

Love her of course queen. But I hate when people say that she was the real victim. She pulls strings in hsm 2 and gets troy hired to work at lava springs and talk to basketball people all so he can get away from his friends and do a duet and date sharpay. She is self-centered and doesn't care about anybody else. "What's the prize? Troy? The Stardazzle award? You have to go through all this just to get either one? No, thanks Sharpay. You're very good at a game that I don't want to play. So, I'm done here. But you better step away from the mirror long enough to check the damage that will always be right behind you."

Love her. An iconic queen who wanted what she wanted when she wanted it. Didn't care what people thought of her, and did her own thing. She goes after what she wants, and even though she does make plenty of mistakes, she always fixes them in the end.

My favourite! When I was like 8 watching hsm for the first time I preferred Gabrielle and thought that sharpay was a brat but now I'm 14 I think Gabriela is just really annoying. Sharpay is such a Queen.

2 Troy Bolton

He is sexy and tough. Troy has a positive character to make out for his tweeny attitude. The High School Musical (franchise) character I am (most like) is Troy Bolton, even more so than Ryan Evans. - Kieran Stark (aka The Ultimate Daredevil)

He's the best. very attractive haha. but danielle was very annoying and he was in love with her. it would be annoying how she'd always be there and it made him annoying a bit. I like him best in the first movie.

3 Ryan Evans

Amazing. So underrated. Great friend and listener, and a wonderful choreographer. You can tell Sharpay annoys him, but he sticks by her faithfully.

Come on, the man actually goes through a full character arc, from the snobby brother of the clearly spotlight hungry Sharpay in movie 1, to the defector and director of the end show in the 2nd, all the way to becoming a man and falling in love in the 3rd. easily the best character

Ryan is a seriously underrated chacter. I mean, he is so sweet and ambitious at the same time. And Ryan and Sharpay are so good together. I just hope she treats him better in the coming days

He's very funny.

4 Gabriella Montez

A lot of people hate her and I don't get it. She may have acted a little immature in hsm3 but in the first two movies she forgave Troy every time for what he did to her. She wasn't afraid to be herself and is very talented. People say Sharpay is the best character and Gabriella is the bad guy, but not in my opinion! Sharpay manipulated her and Troy!

She should be up higher. When Roy said all those mean things about her she handled it in a calm matter instead of jumping to conclusions. She has an amazing voice better than Sharpay. If you think she's fake instead of Sharpay you should watch the movie again. She good in almost everything, these things include school subjects, singing, basketball,
And she's funny. She's not afraid to be herself and is willing to tell others how she feels in a nice way. She is also really mature and confidence due to her wisdom to handle her biggest fear which is to sing in public. Gabriella is empathetic than all of the character in high school musical. Gabriella is my favorite character and deserves to be number one. #love vannesa Hudgens #love high school musical

She seems so fake. I guess I just don't like Vanessa Hudgens, and with that Gabriella. She's too happy and giggly, it's fake and too good to be true. I know Disney is for kids, but at least set some realistic expectations with less-than perfect characters.

I hate how shes the protagonist.Shes such a brat. people might say shes sweet and kind and smart or whatever but that's just her exteirior.Here is her intiereor: 1. Holding her boyfreid back from his future. 2.She jumps to conclusions too much. 3.Waits until the auditions are over to audition. 4.Shows up late AGAIN to callbacks. 5.She is supposed to be FREAKISHLY smart but (a)she should have kown overheating chemichals could have burned down the school insted of helping her go to her callback and(b) SHE DOSEn't KNOW WHAT BREAK A LEG MEANS! 6.Her giggling is absoluteley TERRYFYING! 7.She thinks that its OK to...CORRECT HER TEACHER! 8.Why does she even care if troy dosen't ask her about her italian golf shoes? 9. WHAT IN THE WORLD IS WRONG IF TROY SINGS WITH SHARPAY?! 10. Her voice is not beautiful or speacail. its super-cringey. 11. she is played by vanessa hudgens. 12.does she really think she van get a led role when she has only just begun? 13.She is only commited to herself. not ...more

5 Chad Danforth

Super funny, even though he can be grumpy and hard to persuade at times. He always has good intentions and always makes up for his mistakes. Can be very relatable.

I know people say that he's just like another dumb jock, but he's not really. He's pretty clever and on a side note, he has the cutest hair ever. He's hotter than Troy.

Is it bad that I have a huge crush on his hair?

6 Kelsi Nielsen

Nice, shy, and quiet...what's not to love?! Kelsi just wants to make music and have fun, even if she does have to put up with Queen Sharpay.

Every one seems to forget her. It is pretty sad. I can't even pronounce the actress's first name.

Loves the piano clearly

7 Zeke Baylor

Heartfelt character who loves to bake, it was a twist on the stereotypical jock and I loved it.

8 Coach Bolton

I hate people who try to take over other people's lives. As much as I hate Troy, Coach Bolton trying to tell his son which route to take hit too close to home for me.

No way. Coach sucks he is really controlling and aggressive.

9 Taylor McKessie

Incredibly smart and beautiful, Taylor is sassy and knows what she wants and how to get it. She keeps it 100% real all the time.

Smart pretty and talented-way better than gabriella.

10 Martha Cox

Martha is obviously the best and if you have any other opinion then you need to get your facts straight.

She beats everyone else

The Contenders
11 Ms. Darbus

A lot of people hate her but once you get to know her she is not so bad. Especially in HSM 3.

12 "I Play the Cello" Guy

Did you guys know the actor who played this guy went to jail?

He went to jail for robbing a pizza store I think.

13 Lisa Montez
14 Jason Cross

Jason is ok. Not bad but not good either.
