Top 10 Hunger Games Charactersrockrockmountain
The Top Ten
He was sweet, kind, caring, shallow, broken, and I loved him until the end. He had been through so much and has his mind, body and spirit broken a thousand times, and after all that was murdered in the quickest, most brutal way possible, alone. He deserved so much better, and may have been an annoying jerk at first but watching him open up and change was what made him special. I remember reading the passage where he died on the train on my way to Germany, I was looking forward to seeing him live his life with Annie, their son, his friends, and thought that after so many tears he could finally find peace, and then his was murdered, just like that. I cried when Rue died, when Cinna died, when Prim died, but when Finnick died I just felt empty, inside. He was the most painful, bittersweet and memorable character, but he slipped away into darkness.
I read the books months ago and am still sobbing over him. He was the best character and didn't deserve to die. IT SHOULD'VE BEEN GALE! I am even playing sad violin music and crying over him just because he is my favorite fictional character of all time. HE DESERVED A HAPPY ENDING!
He was my favorite character! Arrogant at first, but that was for show in the capital. His true self was revealed when he saved Katniss and Peta numerous times. His love for Annie. His love and loyalty to Mags carrying her on his back bringing her water was wonderful. Giving his life to save the others. He was a true warrior, he was a romantic,. He was true braveheart for all times!
I Love finnick odairV 116 Comments
I supported katniss once I heard she was jennifer lawrence. I loved the hunger games but really didn't have time to watch it...but now after I watched the movie, she is a TOTAL BADASS. Ya rock girlll
One of the best female fictional character that ever made! Katniss is bold and brave, what else..?
Clearly she deserves to be first! I hated how they hyjacked peeta in this series tough!
Katniss Everdeen is the main character of both movies and books. She is brave and never gives up. She is also very smart, and to voulenteer for the Hunger Games instead of Prim Everdeen would take some GUTS.V 78 Comments
He was awesome and is funny, witty just thought his character overall was better than katniss so put him #2
Good Morning, Sweetheart - DylanB5
Haymitch is hilarious. Though he drank, he was such a witty, funny guy. I loved that he admired when katniss shot the arrow in to the apple in the pig's mouth, it made me laugh. I just love his personality.
He's the most real character. He's gone through hardships, he drinks, he's not perfect. He has a large heart, though, and really feels pain.V 43 Comments
Peeta Mellark will always be my top Hunger Games character, and for many reasons. As some have already accurately pointed out, he is the embodiment of hope in a book that is full of loss, and heartache, and pain. I have seen many people slate his character, calling him weak or always having to be bailed out of situations.
But think deeper. How is he weak?
In the first games despite having all of the odds against him, and even believing himself that he has less chances of winning then most of the other Tributes, he still stayed true to himself - he didn't want the games to change him. The fact he thought as far to know not to let himself to be a piece in the games makes his strength even more significant. Not only this, but through his love for Katniss (which most people undermine and call pathetic) he put her before himself and through being STRONG, protected her in every way he possibly could from the beginning. He made sure to tell Haymitch what she is capable of even ...more
"If your greatest weakness is love then you are the strongest person on the earth". He is kind yet strong, steady yet fierce, composed yet rebellious. He is self-sacrificing, ready to lay down his life for the lives of others, sometimes for the lives of people he barely knows. At the same time, he is self-respecting, he knows his true worth, and his resolve to stay true to himself holds even against unimaginable odds; he fights against his hijacking and returns to his true self, which was deemed to be impossible. Out of all the Hunger Games characters it was always only Peeta who saw things for what they are, since the starting, and who truly fought back in every sense of the term, refusing to be a piece either of the Capitol or of District 13. Snow tried to hijack him and Coin tried to use him to finish Katniss; both the sides wanted to reduce him to a puppet for their wishes, like they had done with everyone else, they wanted to make him theirs, but he never succumbed: he was his ...more
Peeta Mellark is by FAR my all time favorite Hunger Games character!
Ok, seriously, how do only 8% of you people vote for this guy? 4! Like, geez! You can do better than that. Now, I have to admit that I have only read the first two books and I haven't watched the movies, but... 8%! Give me some votes here and show some love for this character. I'm sure he would show some love for you!V 61 Comments
To me she is the embodiment of determination running into what once hurt her so bad to help others
Joanna was Great! She no left to love. Heartbreaking. Tough, smart, cynical, a battered soul, but a warrior for what was right. Needed nor screen time. Nothing against Annie, she's sweet, but wouldn't Joanna and Finnick been great together? So much in common. Loved Finnick too.
Uh no thanks - CloudyDaze
Johanna is really tough and awesome. She has a sad past, but a will as strong as iron.V 47 Comments
No wait, 4 Is thresh - CloudyDaze
Why did she need to die I don't know why you did that it hurt... tell me WHY DID SHE DIE*sobs* - inkyfether
4. Katniss - CloudyDaze
Yass Rue is amazing and such a strong role model, even though she is young. I honestly think she should be number 1. - helloitisi_12V 50 Comments
She made the rebelling happing
WHY IS THIS NUMBER NINE? She was my favorite character, besides Finnick, (And unless Buttercup's on this list), and she should have never died. I'm glad that Katniss shot coin, Coin got what she deserved. - Pebblepaw
Her death was the saddest. I mean, there were those things falling from the sky that turned out to be bombs, she was helping injured kids, and right before Katniss can get to her she gets blown up again and dies. I hate President Snow. Thank god he died.
Actually it was President Coin that killed Prim and the Capitol children. Sure, Snow is just as awful as Coin, but he wasn't the one responsible for Prim's death. - punyraisin
Prim is amazing, Katniss describes her as having her mother's healing hands, her father's level head and Katniss' fight and an ability to look through the mess of life and see things for what they really are. She's adorable!V 17 Comments
Cinna is such a wonderful character. He risked his life just to try and help a rebellion. - Pebblepaw
Absolutely Best Character, Very deep, independent and not self-absorbed although very individualistic. He managed to become a real person in a sea of people, where every one is trying to be different and special. He managed to avoid shallowness and became a true artist and rebel, could look further than colorful walls of Capitol. All Capitol citizens were very aesthetic, but along with aesthetics, he was very intuitive and emotionally stable, hiding huge amount of emotions. I think he is a true survivor and individualist.
Yes. Cinna was amazing! I hate you Snow. His personality, as you described, is well-balanced and stable. And just, just look at the clothings he designed! Katniss and Peeta were so lucky. - Aquastar_of_DewClan
Am I the only fan who realises that Cinna designed that dress knowing he would die for it? He lives in the Capitol, he knows how they work. And he sacrificed himself. For the girl who was on fire. Also, he didn't die when the Peacekeepers dragged him off, he was captured and possibly tortured, as we know he was "killed during interrogation" I LOVE YOU CINNA
I love him, when he died... Let's just say, I needed to buy more tissues... - SwiftdawnV 17 Comments
Oh good Arceus... Why is she on the list...
Don't judge me for hating her but...
Besides... Any of y'all that have watched the films, y'all don't know much better the books are! Same goes with Maze Runner! The books will always be better! - X_the_Unown
Makes you feel bad for people on the other side of the political spectrum - SLAG
At first Effie just seems like another beauty queen but then she shows how deeply she actually cares and it’s so sweet how she tries to help Katniss and Peeta in every way she can.
Effie is a character that I personally didn't like when I first read the series, but as you watch the movies and read the books, you find out that she does care about Katniss and her team. She has a loving personality behind that 'scary white grin'.V 13 Comments
He was brave, strong and definitely caring but the reason why I stop disliking him is because whenever he needs katniss he used to show her the pain he is in and how much desperate he is. That is the most pathetic part of his character but yet he made the right choice when he volunteers to rescue peeta because deep down he knows that katniss is like her mother without peeta and that night talk with peeta, proves that in the end he was ready to finally let katniss to follow her heart but yet that prims death and all was disturbing and that's make him more hated, which is not all his fault but saying that katniss choose peeta by default because gale wasn't there you should think thrice because in every view katniss was always been in love with peeta from the very first hunger games but yet could not do anything about this because of gale desperation and making her feel guilt, that's why I still hate him
Peeta deserves so much better than Katniss, which is why Gale and Peeta would be a better couple. Kale!
I love him. He is so caring, sweet, fierce, brave, strong, and loves Katniss beyond all reason. - Swiftdawn

She was awesome with knives and smarter than the others
Even though Clove is from district 2, meaning she is a career and is arrogant. She is still very awesome. She is good with knives and very smart compare to other careers. She slept holding a knife in the arena showing that she is considerate and intelligent. I SUPPORT CLATO!
She is skilled with knives and awesome.
Clove is by far my fave. She's the youngest and smallest Career, but managed to get equal odds with Marvel, better odds than Glimmer and beat both of them in training. She got the first kill of the Games - the boy from District 9 she killed right before she tried to kill Katniss the first time. She's like a younger, smaller version of Katniss but with knives instead of bows and arrows and from District 2. Her actress is amazing and so pretty. If she was a bit older Isabelle Furnham might have been Katniss but she's better as Clove I think. I can't believe when I put this she only had 2%. Lower than Foxface. Foxface didn't even kill anyone! She's such a cool character.V 50 Comments
He's the cherry on top of the hunger games
BEETEE IS THE REAL GOD
I love beetee! Why isn't he in top 10?
Super smart and kind. Can't believe he wasn't on the list!V 8 Comments
We all know who is the real victor is, it's Buttercup. Also cats are way better than stupid tributes who don't even have names! Buttercup was never even close to death expat once(when Katniss almost DROWN HIM). But he was ugly and BUTTERCUP IS A CAT PEOPLE! Last thing there's no twelve only Buttercup THE CAT!
NUMBER 23? Okay, I'm kinda going crazy. Buttercup was the best character of them all, and he should be way ahead of some of these people. Like Jackson. Who is Jackson?
(*Number 2) - Pebblepaw
He was the only one who didn't die or nearly die and yet he still gets the depression of prim's death. He also appeared on the first page of the hunger games trilogy. Best character.
LOL, YESS! I love him, haha, he's smarter than everyone in the Hunger Games. - SwiftdawnV 13 Comments
She isn't my favourite. But she definitely is in my top 5 favourites in the Hunger Games. She is such a brave character. I mean from volunteering for Annie Cresta to sacrificing for Peeta by going into the poisonous fog. I obviously don't get why FoxFace is higher up. I mean FoxFace never really talked and was just trying to stay alive. Gale? Um, how exactly did he make it into the Top 10? Some few people (like meh), actually wonders what Gale have done and is actually a jerk. So - RainbowCat
Mags is amazing! She was so brave when she volunteered for Annie. She knew that she wouldn't make it out alive, and she knew that it meant life or death. So she gladly sacrificed her life for Annie, and that's what I call a good character.
Even though she is 80 or something, Mags is still cool. She volunteers for Annie, and gives up her life to save Katniss and Peeta. Wonderful. - Pebblepaw
I cried when she diedV 12 Comments
She's the best character EVER! Exclamation point! Let's see how do you top smart, sly, elusive, and sneaky. Even the name is thrilling: Foxface. She always hopped around, had a plan, and she trusts Katniss. Her and Katniss sort of made an alliance. Both admired each other and if you watch the movie when they crash into each other Foxface smiled at Katniss and looked to the side like "well, do you wanna be in an alliance? " But they both walked away but neither killed each other and Foxface was cute and had a cool personality that makes you wanna be her for Halloween! Who else practically cried when she died? She was awesome and I wish she got more credit for it.
She is the smartest of the smart, who cares if she did get any killed. AND SHE DID NOT DIE! Instead she out the berries in her mouth but did not eat them because we know that she has berry identification skills, and she tricked the capital to make them think she was dead when she was alive this whole time, living in the capital
Foxface is my favourite character In the hunger games too. I really thought she had a very high chance of winning. Lots of people admire katniss and peseta for not wanting to kill anyone but foxface actually hasn't killed ANYONE yet she still was one of the people who survived the longest. Most people only think about katniss and peeta being like that. She was also clever enough to avoid that trap with the explosion. Just because she's dead doesn't mean she can't be the best character. If katniss did accept the alliance with her, I'm sure they would be the strongest alliance ever!
She deserved more screen time because she was always in the backgroundV 27 Comments
Why is he all the way down here? - HoneyBadgers
Stanley tucci, with blue hair
Awesome and cool, he may be on the capitol but he sure as hell helps the tributes a lot
Creepy facial stuffV 1 Comment
Yes. Underneath that fearsome, beast exterior, he is a real sweet guy. Allowing Katniss to live made him a rebel too. What is he doing down here?
5 boggs - CloudyDaze
He is one of my favorite characters. Here's why:
1) He helped Rue. He felt bad when Rue was in the Hunger Games and wanted to help her because she was so young and small.
2) He killed Clove. I'm sorry, but Clove was a terrible character.
3) He died for Katniss. Right after he killed Clove, Cato was coming and he grabbed Cato's backpack and ran away, so Cato would chase him instead of Katniss. He saved Katniss' life with his own and let Cato kill him. Right after killing Clove, he could've easily killed Katniss. But it turns out that Katniss helped Rue so he made sure that Cato would kill him instead of Katniss. Cato could've easily killed Katniss and the only reason Katniss killed Cato later in the Games was because he was all hurt and weak. At that time he was not and would've killed Katniss, so Thresh got himself killed, so he puts others in front of himself.
Now that, my friends, is a good character.
yesV 19 Comments
I hate her, she used Katniss. Liar. But she is a smart, ruthless, powerful leader, so I respect her. - Swiftdawn
She was ruthlessly power hungry but much more subtle than Snow, which had the potential to make her twice as deadly. She was exceptionally well-cast; who could suspect a soft-spoken, kind-eyed, and pin-straight grey-haired Julianne Moore? She's incredibly tactful; she uses people against themselves. She's so cold that her coldness passes off as warmth - she can execute great evil and manipulation without remorse while feigning compassion and morality. Her coldness to the core enables her to execute her strategy so inconspicuously. She's practically a sociopath with tremendous intelligence and ambition. Very dangerous combination. Incredibly compelling villain.
Your kidding she's the best villain in the series
She and Snow are tied for best Villain of the series they both amazing - punyraisinV 5 Comments
Um, how the hell did he get to the Top 26 in Best Characters... He is evil bruh - RainbowCat
Who doesn't like psychotic dictators played by Donald Sutherland!?
Hmm, everyone? To each their own I guess...
Most wicked dictator of all time! if he was alive today we all would be doomed!
Very honourable, yet evil!V 6 Comments
UI only like any because she's Finnick's wife. :P - Pebblepaw
She's incredibly strong, to survive the Games, and even though she was (slightly) insane, she found love, and she raised a child by herself.
A sweet and innocent girl who won the Hunger Games almost by chance... And spent the rest of her life terrorized by it. The fact that Finnick fell in love with her speaks volumes to her true character. - carolynsnow
Cato was absolutely amazing. Everyone says he was a ruthless, blood-craving beast that had no heart; but they were wrong. He had a heart, it's just that... His district taught him to show no affection; and that's how he was raised. We would be like that too if we were raised like that ALL our life. In the book, he ran to Clove's aid; sat there beside her until she died. It even says that his voice sounded pained and hurt when he heard her calling his name. He was determined, focused, and ready; not what you guys put him as. He should have won, think of it this way: All you life, you've trained for an event that comes once a year, and if you won, you'd get money, popularity, and more. ALL YOUR LIFE. Then, some girl who comes from another district ( never trained ) beats you at something you've worked for everyday since you were a kid. It hurts... I'm not going to lie. He should be first, how did a nameless tribute rank higher than him and Clove?
Not exactly what I say someone I would like, but a part that he showed he had a heart was in the book of how he ran to Clove when she was about to die. I really hated how the movie made it sound like as the ship was supposed to be Cato and Glimmer. Cato + Clove =Clato - RainbowCat
Cato. Yes, he was tough. He was a bad boy, a jerk, just a really bad boy. But he was amazingly well played in the movie. I'm not judging on if he was good or bad, because of course, he had no feelings for others. But his personality was so wonderful. I loved it when Glimmer was sleeping on his chest and he seemed very protective about her, and then the tracker jackers came and he just stood out and not even look back at his suffering 'friend'. Or when he was with Clove. He was just a great character; adding so much more intensity to the film.
But he couldn't help it. He volunteered, because he had confidence in himself that he would win. He was trained his entire life, and he was determined. He was tough, rough, strong and powerful. I loved him that way. I didn't love that he had no feeling to others, but I loved his unique personality, it described him well.
Anyways, Cato's cool.
I could write a whole essay on Cato... he was such an interesting, sad characterV 35 Comments
She's cool. She should be above Katniss and Peeta.
She is amazing and is badass enough said
She is ticking all the boxes for me
An amazing man who sacrificed his life for his squad and Katniss' mission... Also made the brave and wonderful move of assigning the Holo to Katniss instead of Jackson. Oh, yes, and let's not forget his sense of humor, especially in the "Do you find this distracting? " scene. - carolynsnow
He was a brave warrior. R.I.P Boggs. Sacrificed himself and trusted katniss and let her do her personal mission.
I nearly cried when he died:'(
- Frostine Selkirk
Never heard of this person - Pebblepaw
Who is that?
Jackson was the “far-sighted’’ person in Boggs’ squad. - VeganTurtle
What did she do?
Wiress! How the hell are you this low? Anyway, you were a big berserk, which I loved. Not to mention extremely smart (she was the first to realize the arena was a clock! ) and pretty kind, it seems. She's one of my favorite characters in the trilogy. 'enough said. - SapphireMoon44
I love wiress she's amazing and if it wasn't for her I'm not sure if katniss and co would have survived, if it wasn't for her they wouldn't know about the arena being a clock no it would have been a whole lot harder for them
Crafty, smart, and a watcher. If you know what I mean. - keycha1n
Why is he even on here? We didn't even know his name. - CharismaticKat
This guy got choked had his head bashed against a crate several times and nearly stabbed and then I forget how he died
This dude needs a name he deserves respect!
He was made to die why is he on here?V 2 Comments
U can just tast her slimmy soup
I'm glad she was rescued in catching fire
Y'all Martin is that one child in 11 who stole the glasses to see in the dark and got killed for it. He was mentioned in the books by rue.
Don't you mean Marvel? He was like Cato, he was trained most of his life, and he was taught to be ruthless. You can't really blame him for killing Rue, he caught her and was trying to win just like everyone else. He was very underrated. He should've had a more major role in the movie, and I like him just as much as Rue. Plus he was hot.
Who the hell is Martin?
Do you mean marvel because he wasn't anything special, but I really like how he was portrayed in the movie.V 8 Comments
He's only in the movie to die near the end.
I will call him harvy
Explain to me RIGHT NOW why the District 9 Male, why wasn't important to the story in any way, is above Madge? Without Madge, Katniss wouldn't have anyone to sit with at lunch, Gale probably would've died, Rue wouldn't have trusted Katniss, and 90% of the story wouldn't happen. Explain this RIGHT NOW.
Think about it, guys. Who gave Katniss the pin? Madge did. Without Madge, Catching Fire and Mockingjay wouldn't exist, and neither would most of the storyline with Rue.
Madge was a kind friend to Katniss. She brought some medicine for Gale in a snowstorm. She sat with Katniss at lunch. And most of all, she gave the Mockingjay pin!
Madge and her Mockingjay Pin is a sign on rebellion. She may not be the best character, but she's awesome! RIP MadgeV 5 Comments
He is very suspicious but turns out to be good when he rescues Katniss and Beetee and is part of the rebellion. I honestly think he is a better game maker than Seneca Crane.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME THE THREE OTHER CAREERS ARE AT THE BOTTOM HE KILLED RUE! - 9361721
Even though he killed Rue, I really like him. I've started to think of him as more than just a heartless career and just another tribute.
What!? I loved him!
He is asoume
He reactivated the mines for the careers. That's awesome - CloudyDaze
We didn't know him but it's sad how he was killed by his allies
His name was Noah
His name is Noah - Untildawn8V 2 Comments
How is he not on here yet? He was amazing.
Very sweet and likable character. Happy he survived, hopefully to inspire other former avoxes and promote a better Panem with Cressida.
Underrated to be honest.
ALSO people are everyhweer like "who tf is jackson" she was the leader of katniss' squad
Enobaria survived and is still alive. There has to be a reason for that right?
She is the best tribute in my opinion
She is awesome vote her upV 3 Comments
I voted for her because she went through a lot during the bloodbath. She isn't in the movie much but during the bloodbath you see her multiple times, mostly during her death :(
How do people know her name is amber and how do we know she survived like th actors can't make there heart stop so they had her move as little as she could - TotalEscapeTheIsland
Her name is Amber! - Untildawn8
Yea, at least she tried... and was prettyV 3 Comments
I supported that I even whistled along with the book when he did (made up my own for rue) - CloudyDaze
I cried when this happened...

He is invincible when he got shot there was no blood he is so powerful he could kill all the tributes and all the capitol just by whistlingV 3 Comments
She is beautiful and insightful
She was amazing. I loved her sibling relationship with Gloss.
She my favorite career. Why did Enobaria live but beautiful Cashmere had to die?
Prettier than glimmer to be honest - CloudyDaze
I call her Annie cause everyone in movies with orange hair like Annie and the other Annie and who could forget annie
She was pretty but of course, Marvel had to kill her along with the girl from 7 (also pretty) and Rue. DAMN I HATE HIM
She's the prettiest!V 1 Comment
Look, everything every one is saying is wrong, we have NO idea what her name is. And you can say that her name is Tamora but news flash wiki is just a blog because anyone can put anything there. GO FOX FACE

HAYMITCHS' FRIEND AND REBEL, AWESOME
Survived really long in the bloodbath - CloudyDaze
Dear Suzanne Collins,
Katniss wants to believe she's more than a pawn in the Games. And with the rebellion, that happens. But what about all of the other tributes in the 74th games you were too lazy to give names to? You could have named them. Like the comment below said, they only exist to lose to Katniss. I write Hunger Games stories usually centered around one character, but I bother to give the other tributes names. Stories, personalities, identities. They were just pawns, I suppose, in your writing.
My favorite character - TheInsomniac
He's okay, but I agree with the person that said Suzanne Collins should've named all the tributes. Like why would Katniss kill someone (district 4 female) without even knowing her name?V 5 Comments
