Top Ten Mass Effect Characters

Who is your favourite character from the Mass Effect trilogy?

The Top Ten

1 Garrus

The most interesting and best fleshed out character of the series with the exception of Shepard and is easily one of the most likable. And his combat build makes him always present on every mission my sentinel goes out on. He is Shepard's right hand man or whatever the turian equivalent if that fraise is. In my opinion, the series would not have been as successful if not for him.

People, this guy is just the ultimate bro. You know you would love a Garrus in real life. Too much broness.

2 Liara

My favorite character. She loves Shepard even if she isn't your love interest she is just awesome.

Ignore the guy that claims she's boring, Liara is well rounded, incredibly likeable and has a beautiful voice. If you play the games you will grow to trust her every word, the empathy and compassion she shows in every conversation, her deep passion for history and her usefulness in combat not to mention her excellent character development. The guy claiming that she is emotionless clearly hasn't played Lair Of The Shadow Broker, or even paid attention to her in 3.

She's so faithful to Shepard, as a friend or a girlfriend, and she's the whole reason why the commander was revived in Mass Effect 2. She's the most loyal squad mate and an interesting character. Liara grows up a lot throughout the series.

Liana has the personality of a brick and speaks in a monotone that will put you to sleep. She is a dull character that only shows a glimmer of emotion when Thessia is destroyed. Other than that she is an emotionless robot. Talk and Garrus are far more interesting.

3 Tali

Young girl who is loyal to his family and her entire race. We see her grow as a person to eventually become more self assured, an admiral and the love she has for Shepard is cute and innocent. Tali is girl you take home to mom.

Tali has so many positive things about her: cool personality, loyal, cute, best MaleShep romance (in my opinion), a great voice and the singing scene. The best Mass Effect character in my opinion.

She's super cute, and a great romance option

It's my favourite character. Her voice is beatiful and actions are awkward due to her simpaty to shepard. So she is my favourite companion

4 Shepard

I do not think that Shepard should be on this list. Yes he/she is the most important character in the series, but that is because we make him/her that way. There are just far to many variables in the character that a consistent ideal can be drawn from him/her to a point where we can pin the personality down and say "classic Shepard". This is what makes the character so great and what made the series the show-stopper it was and how the title shook up and raise the bar of the gaming world.

I'm Command Shepard, and this is my favorite character in mass effect - Bean_Destroyer12

He is the hero of the entire game!

I don't see how Shepard is not number 1 on this list! Shepard defeated the Reapers for gods sake. Shepard is the greatest ME character ever! Shepard is so fearless and fierce it inspires me. Shepard is a complete badass. Granted, she's a terrific soldier (N7) and such a charasmatic and strong leader. She defeated the Reapers when no organic has ever done that. She will fight to the very end for what she believes is right even if it kills her and she lose everthing.


Shepard is so boss because she says and does whatever she wants and damns the consequences. Shepard is an amazing leader and friend. Her prescense just demands respect and loyalty! She somehow gets very difficult fighters to work together to be loyal to Shepard and the mission. Shepard takes the time despite being a great millitary leader to know every single person on the Normandy on a deep level.

She doesn't let anyone get in her way and she destroys her ememies with such fierce determination and ...more

11 Mordin
12 Kaiden
13 Miranda

She is beautiful and powerful. She can hold her own. Without Shepard wouldn't be alive.

14 David Anderson
15 Thane

This guy is awesome! Even his voice is awesome! And Thane has possibly the saddest death in the whole series!

The most skilled assassin in the mass effect universe

Thane is the best character In my opinion. - JESUSISKING

16 Ashley

Honestly should be higher as she is flawed (kinda racist) but not extremist and doesn't act out of line by far the better choice to be saved on Virmire (sorry Kaiden) I can never actually bring myself to let her die

17 Jack

She is hot and an all-powerful woman. She acts tough, but showing interest in her opens up a soft, vulnerable girl.

18 Samara

She's powerful and dangerous, but faithful to you all the way through.
