Best Mahabharata Characters

Mahabharat is an Indian epic and we are talking about the top characters from Mahabharata.
The Top Ten
1 Karna

Karna is a great warrior... karna is a real hero of Mahabharata.. but no one respect his power.. cause everyone knew he is great archer but every one made him down calling chariot’s son.. most of all people think Arjun is better than karna but that’s not true cause if Arjun was better than karna ... how could he kill karna with adharma? If he was able to kill him .. then he supposed to get him chance to get out his wheel.. or get him chance to hold vijay dhanus in his hand... cause Krishna knew Arjun was not able to kill karna with fair way.. so Krishna told to Arjun this is the right time if you did not kill now then you will not kill ever... the real point is every one did adharma in Mahabharata even lord Krishna ...

Karna was better greater superior and powerful than Arjun. Karna defeated bhima at least 5 times in war.
Karna was atimaharathi
Karna the greatest friend
Karna the ultimate and enlightened warrior
Karna the greatest archer
Karna the greatest father
Karna the greatest warrior
Karna the greatest son
Karna was powerful than bhima
Karna was far better archer than arjuna
Karna the greatest fighter
Karna was greater than all pandavas and kauravas
Karna the ultimate Digvijay warrior

Many people say that Karna is famous because of shows and all but that's not true. If they read real Mahabharata Karna was the one and the only one warrior who had done Digvijay Bharat Varsha yatra, Defeated the whole Pandava army including Arjuna on the 17th day. He was always the first choice of Krishna. The only character who got the offer to rule the whole world and Krishna promised him that he will be his enlightener but Karna refused the offer for his friend Duryodhana. According to Krishna, he had the quality of all the five Pandavas. Dharma of Yudhistir, Strenght of Bheema, Archery of Arjuna, Handsomeness of Nakul, and Intelligence of Sahadeva. This is said by Krishna and Kunti.

Those who are saying arjuna was better and greater than karna they are know nothing. Karna was far superior and better archer than arjuna. Karna was mightier and greater than arjuna in many ways . I am saying Karna was greater than arjuna because Karna captured all pandavas but not killed them but arjuna captured kauravas and killed them. Arjuna was flopest warrior and not greater but a cruel warrior. Arjuna is never and ever greater than karna. So Karna is greatest;biggest, better finest, and greater than arjuna. Karna son vrishasena is powerful than abhimanyu

2 Krishna

Krishna should be in first. The comment I wrote for arjun is the same as krishna. and actually krishna is my big brother. Hi bhaiya

Because the lord krishna is doing all the things and made the Mahabharata war

He is loyal to everyone and the great

The God. What more I have to say. The preacher of bhagwaad Geeta

3 Bheeshma

Bheeshma was the greatest of all warriors.Sacrificed his kingdom for his father.He could have ended the war single handedly

The most virtuous character bound by shackles of promises. Everyone shat on him even though he was the most respected one.

He was the greatest warrior, could have destroyed everyone but restrained his powers.

Greatest warrior and man who keeps his word at whatever cost it takes.

4 Arjun

I never care about anyone saying about him anything. He is the person of which Lord Krishna himself became the chariotter. Doesn't need much more. Better than best.

Arjun was the one who got famous gyan of gita from Krishna. He had many divine astras like Pashupatastra Vajra bramhashir Vaishnavastra.

He fight for the truth. People love Karn because they read Fack books or shows. If they read real mahavarat they understand who is stronger. He is the Hiro of mahavarat

Arjun was the ultimate enlightened warrior, greatest friend of god himself, and one of the most Sattvic warriors of all time.

5 Duryodhana

Please vote this guy. From the beginning to end everything unjust him.

He had good qualities
He respected his wife

Great friend, valiant warrior, even prayed as God for his protective nature for someone helped him with his thirst in malanada

His claim to throne was right. In battlefield he never do fraud likd pandavas

6 Abhimanyu

#Son of Arjun and Subhadra.
#Student of God Krishna.
#He defeated Every warrior in Chakravyuha.

Great warrior got lost in padmavyuham.

He should be in fifth position (1.Krishna,2.karna,3.arjuna,4.beeshma,5.drona,6 abhimanyu)he alone killed many people like duryodhana's son etc withount hellp

7 Bheem

He defeated Karna at least 4 times during the war. Also defeated Drona by breaking his chariot 8 times

The spotless character in entire Mahabharat

Great warrior, humourous and only protector of draupadi...

The Strongest Man in Epic.
A Powerful man and Greatest Mace Fighter.
He killed Duryodhan, Dusashan and 98 other Kauravas.
He Killed Jarasindh, Bakasur, Hidimb, Kichak and Many Other Warriors.
He defeated Karna, Drona, Susharma and Jaydrath.

8 Shakuni

Good politician and kept word for his forefathers.

Most intelligent of humans

The cleverest of all

Best character

9 Eklavya

Just faith and trust for his guru made him the best Archer. And sacrificed everything for the same guru, can let go anything for one he trust.

I am not S.T but he also rocks but yeah I also like karan and krishna but his character also rocks

10 Yudhishthir

He lived for Dharma and got the name and fame as "Dharma Raj". He alone went to the Heaven with the human body at the end.

#Wise, Intelligent
#Also A brave Warrior.
#follower of DHARMA.

The Contenders
11 Balram

He was one of the most unbiased people in the story.

12 Drona

#Teacher of Pandavas and Kauravas.
#One of Great Warriors.

13 Ashwatthama

A fun fact,
He is alive today due to be cursed by Lord Krishna.
Reason:
He shooted Bhramastra in Utra's Incense.
he is not best he is worst

He is a great warrior who replied to the enemies in their code and style. He killed the remaining Pandava Army including cowards like Shikhandi and Dhrishtadyumna very brutally, which was the need of the hour. He was perhaps the best Commander that the Kaurava Army ever had.

Valiant warrior but only person who dare enough trying to stop disrobing of draupadi in large gathering of so called great persons.

I don't understand why he is not in the list. Though he is a bad character, he was a great warrior.

14 Vidur

Abdul kalam said that he is a good man

#A Wise Man
#A Great Man

15 Nakula
16 Ghatotkacha

He can be next Ravana if he had survived kurukshetra war was opinion of krishnna such a capable person.

He s the scape goat of pandavas... Ghatotkatcha was the great warrior who destroys more of the kauravas army and saved arjuna from karna's celestial weapon... He's not recognized well as of abhimanyu... because of being a rakshasa... Racism everywhere...

#Son of Bheem & Hidimbaa.
#A Danger Demonic Warrior.
#He Defeated Every Warrior.

17 Kunti

Kunti was such a great character, mother, and queen. She did abandon Karna, but she prayed for him, kept a track of him, and kept him with good protection. Kuntibhoj would not have kept Kunti there with Karna (unwed mother), and where would she go with a child, alone? She was a great wife (always supported Pandu, helped him, went to do penance with him when she had no fault, and more), great mother (raised her 3 sons, and Madri's 2 sons with equal love and care, and after all her disappointments, hardships, and miseries she was kind and strong to her sons), great sister in law (She was supportive and sensitive to the feelings of gandhari, guided gandhari's blindness, kind and humble to Dhritarashtra, and welcoming, accepting, kind, and a mentor to Madri), and a great queen (always saw off Pandu to wars bravely, took care of Kauravas and Pandavas). She was patient, brave, responsible, and kind.- Patient to Madri when Madri got irresponsible, patient with her kids, brave and strong with ...more

She attained Moksha.

18 Draupadi

She is probably the most pious lady ever existed on earth. Though people had made false stories of her insulting Karna and Duryodhan, but they are all false.

She deserves more respect.

19 Parashurama

A vishnu avatar who has last from satya yug to save the world

20 Barbarika

He is innocent, who can stand in the side of loosing and a capable warrior who can end war with just 3 arrows. Got cheated by Krishna, as he had other plans with war

A good warrior but not much karna

21 Vrishashen

Vrishsena was best...

Maharathi warrior

22 Pandu

Great gandu. Unbeatable in gandu battles.

23 Mata Gandhari
24 Shikhandi
25 Sahadeva

He knows the future and also a genius
