The Top Ten


Proud , Adamant , Robust but also , Compassionate , Generous and Charitable . Karna's Entire life story shows the complexity of what it means to be a human . The most powerful yet the most human character . A Personality that occurrs once in an era

He is Supreme among Humans, warriors and king's
He is the one from whom even God Begged.
His thought of Non castism, Equality, Merit based society inspires Today's Democracy.
No warrior can match or come close to Radhey Karna.
He was killed decietfully by more than 9 Forces such as,

10- Finally for his friend and Krishna's Dharma stapna he sacrificed Himself And remained forever as SUN of Mankind

He was most good character of mahabharat it was very surprising for me that now some idiots people are comparing him with bheem and abhimanyu . I want to clear every karn fans karn is more good than this in authentic version sites like quora are fulfilled with arjuna fans that's why they spread wrong information

SUPERIOR AND SUPREME to Warriors,kings, peoples, perhaps even God .
One of the purest and Greatest soul ever walked on Earth for crores of years.
"No one was and No one will be" Like him in all worlds, Giver , Generous and Strongest warrior
Human With God Characters.


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


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.


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.


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

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

He had good qualities
He respected his wife

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


#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


Good politician and kept word for his forefathers.

Most intelligent of humans

The cleverest of all

Best character


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.


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


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


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


Abdul kalam said that he is a good man

#A Wise Man
#A Great Man


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


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.


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.


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.


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


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


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
