The Top Ten

1 Wall-E (Wall-E) Wall-E (Wall-E)

(I picked this image so that you can character, not others). Wall-E is one of my personal favourite animated movie characters. I always really loved seeing this character on screen and never got bored when he was on screen. He very likeable and combined with that very funny, and you did feel sorry for him at the start of the movie. He is dealing with an issue that none of us has to deal with. Abandonment. You do enjoy it when he finds romance, not to mention it might be the best in film history (but still). I just love his character, but also this movie. - iliekpiez

I found Wall-E to be more likable than Woody in the first Toy Story movie. That's why he gets my vote. - PackFan2005

YES 10/10, walle is number one, yo check out my lists. - Listmaker5000

2 Woody (Toy Story Series) Woody (Toy Story Series) Sheriff Woody Pride is a fictional character in the Toy Story franchise. He is voiced by Tom Hanks in all of the feature-length and short films and by Jim Hanks in video games and shorts. He is a stuffed cowboy character that leads the other toys in adventures in the movies. His facial features are ...read more.

Whilst I really like Buzz, he is not really the main character. That title goes to Woody. This character, everyone knows the name of. This is a character who goes through very believable and very real human issues, that many people go through. In Toy Story, he goes through the fear that he might be replaced. In 2, he is trying to be reasonable and get out of retirement and the fear but tries to enjoy while it lasts. In 3, he tries to get a good finale with Andy, and tries to convince others. This makes in a lot of ways, a very real character in a sense. - iliekpiez

3 Carl Fredericksen (Up) Carl Fredericksen (Up)

This is a character who is grumpy. But, other than being than the typical stereotype of being grumpy because he's old, he has reasons to be grumpy. First of all, his wife Ellie dies, and he tries to get over mourning her. He has had a long past, so you can believe he is having a hard time. Second of all, he could not have children-again an issue many couples face, again making him more real. Third, his house is getting demolished. This is was unfair to him, and makes him a much better character because of this. - iliekpiez

4 Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible (The Incredibles Series) Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible (The Incredibles Series)

To real life, to just really enjoyable. He has had a law that has affected him and also that he just tried to do good, but got critiqued-many people and relate to this and his Mid Life Crisis makes it all the more relatable. However, when he is a superhero, along with all the family, you just adore seeing them on screen, fighting the bad guys and you root for them all the way and it makes all the better. - iliekpiez

5 Dory (Finding Dory) Dory (Finding Dory) Dory is a major character from the film, Finding Nemo and its sequel, Finding Dory. She is a blue tang known for her short-term memory loss and tends to forget almost everything, even the fish that she knows personally. This makes the mission to find Nemo even more difficult for Marlin.

This is a character, almost like Woody and Carl, is going through a believeable issue, but a very serious one. This is dementia. This makes the movie very entraining and have good moments, and you do feel happy when she finds her parents, as she has almost for a moment, overcame a disease that does not have a cure. This helps Dory as a whole in the franchise, and someone had an idea and put forward it and others put full effort into the film. - iliekpiez

6 Joy (Inside Out) Joy (Inside Out) Joy is the main protagonist of the 2015 Disney/Pixar animated feature film "Inside Out". She is one of the five emotions inside of Riley Andersen's mind and serves as the leader. Hence her name she is very positive and optimistic and wants nothing more but for Riley to be happy.

While MegaSoulhero may not enjoy the character, I really love this character. (not literally, that would be a bit weird). But this character just wants the best for someone, but thinks that Sadness is not necessary. However, this just makes the character better as a whole, as again it makes the character seem more real as it deals with the issue, and I love the voice and seeing her character on screen. - iliekpiez

She is my favorite Pixar character, period. - phillysports

7 Remy (Ratatouille) Remy (Ratatouille)

This is a character, who the writers made more than just a simple stereotype and made him very likeable. You could see that he wanted to dream, and therefore could not however due to him being a rat, and dealing with racism. For me, this is a element which I do not feel is appreciated enough and therefore really does make the film better as a whole for me, as it kinda does make the film better as well as it can also pack in a message about stereotypes, and is again, a very real issue in reality and makes the film seem more real. - iliekpiez

8 James P. Sullivan (Monsters, Inc. Series) James P. Sullivan (Monsters, Inc. Series)

Of all the characters in this, basically movie series, but I want three as I would really enjoy a sequel to Monsters, Inc. I really enjoyed the relationship he had with Boo, I thought that was probably the best thing for me about MI. I really enjoyed his character as a whole, I never truly got bored seeing him on screen, it wasn't like I was bored like I was when Mike was on screen. This character could be developed more if they hopefully decide to make a sequel. - iliekpiez

9 Marlin (Finding Nemo Series) Marlin (Finding Nemo Series)

A character who again, like almost all the others is relatable. This time to parents and how they can go to measures to protect their children. It is extremely understandable to see why he did it and seeing him interact with Dory is extremely good, and I really love it when both of them are on screen together. A character who maybe does not as much attention as Nemo (Oh I wonder why) but well is kinda more well received then Nemo. - iliekpiez

A lot of people I know dislike Marlin for being bossy and over-protective, but that's what Disney was going for. He's protective of his son because he lost everything but Nemo to a large fish. He went to huge lengths just to save him, yet Nemo and Dory get most of the attention. While I like them as well, Marlin is my favorite character in both "Finding" movies. - PackFan2005

10 Arlo (The Good Dinosaur) Arlo (The Good Dinosaur)

This is the one, which was the best of a quite frankly average bunch. Arlo is a simply average character. However, now I have to negatively conclude on him but he does have a strong point. He has the cliché motivation, it has been done before, to make his family proud, blah, blah blah. He does not have a strong enough relationship with his father, so you do not feel his tragedy as much as you would want to. He also is extremely weak on his own, kinda reminds me of Flik (A Bug's Life-average movie). However, he did have a very strong relationship with Spot, kinda wished it was more about that other than the other dinosaurs in the film. - iliekpiez
