Top Ten Maze Runner Characters

The Top Ten

1 Newt

Warning, there may be spoilers in this comment. Newt was such a real and lovable character. He never deserved any of the bad things he got. The way James Dashner has written about Newt makes you like his instantly in the beginning, but as the story goes on, love him more and more. If you have read the Death Cure and if you are a fellow Newt fan, then you will know how hard it is to read about the kindest person in this story change his whole mind because of such a horrible disease. It was hard to have to read about him slowly going insane, having the Flare hurt him so much, physically and emotionally, that he begs for his own friend to kill him. He deserved a better normal life and he never deserved that. Congratulations to James Dashner for creating an amazing character and making everything about him so real. Truly an amazing writer!

Don't read this comment if you haven't read the Death Cure. I warned you. It was hard, really really hard to read about Newt changing, slowly succumbing to the Flare. I hoped desperately that he somehow would survive but he didn't. He died in a way worse than I thought that any character deserved, begging his friend to kill him. He was my favourite and he died.

He is sweet and kind and cute. He's also very intelligent. I couldn't believe he died. I said to my brother that if Chuck or Newt or both died, I'd cry. That was before I saw the ending of the first movie. Then Chuck died and made me cry so much. If I see the Death Cure movie and they kill Newt off, I'll probably cry harder. It's just as hard when I read the books.

Newt is my overall favorite character, it's just so easy to love his character; movie and book

2 Minho

He is just down straight awesome he is the one that has always been there for thomas and everyone else.

Minho is my favourite! Narrowly beating Newt... Thomas is a sweetheart, but no match for either of them

He's so sassy and sarcastic...that's why I like him.

3 Thomas

Thomas is my favorite character in the Maze Runner series and one of my favorite characters of fiction period. Why? Let's not forget how heroic this guy is. He's saved his friends on multiple occasions throughout the series. He's extremely intelligent which helps him survive throughout his journey. He's a caring guy, and he's the most 'down to earth' there is. How could you not love him?

Thomas is the best character in the maze runner series. I like Minho and Newt too, but Thomas, in my opinion is the best, not just because he's the main character, but because he's strong, smart, and a survivor. Also, Thomas never gave up even though things got rough, and he's a leader, Minho and Newt followed him even though there was no reason to do so.

Love him, and also Newt and Minho. But Thomas is my favorite though.

In my Opinion is Thomas the best character in the whole maze runner series. First off all he's the main protagonist and it's save to say that he's the one who saved the gladers.
I read all the books( including the kill order and the fever code) and I have to cry every time I'm realizing how strong Thomas is.I want to be like him( and I'm a girl) : strong, smart and he's a big survivor. He's just so taff and never ever wanted to give up.
The way he's acting is just so cool.

4 Chuck

Chuck was my favourite in the first book. Then I started to like Minho and Newt.

How Maze Runner should have ended: Newt and Chuck reach Paradise with Thomas and Minho.

Chuck is in the fifth book. The Fever Code.

Like if you cry every time

Oh well,by the way he probaly wouldn't have survived the scorch anyway.

5 Winston

Winston is my favorite because the way he died in the movie was heroic. In the book, he juste got knocked off in the storm like an extra.

6 Jack

He's an outstanding character, but little did I know he's just a backround character, although he did die book and movie he deserves top 3 best characters

7 Gally

He is not bad. He helps Thomas in the last book and he regretted killing chuck so much he ripped his hair out. Despite him being a pain he was the best guy in the series. I have to admit he's not perfect but no one is right?

Gally does get better in the 3rd book. If you don't know, Gally is alive! - TheMazeRuner

More like G

He's not so bad - he helped Thomas get his name back in the movies and he was more civil and respectful in the last book.
He is my favourite too

8 Teresa

She's so cute and funny and sure she betrayed but she's close to Thomas than anybody ever like what why is she so low

The Contenders

11 Teresa Agnes

Teresa is GREAT! I know that most people dislike her because of the scorch trials, but she was doing that all for Thomas. Plus, in the Death Cure, she was trying to win back Thomas. Also, in the Kill Order, she was really awesome and I don't get people who say that Teresa is bad. That's WICKED.

I don't get why everyone hates Teresa. She's arguably the bravest one there. She gave up what she and Thomas had to save his life no matter the cost. Who cares if she betrayed the Gladers? She did what she had to do to save Thomas! And in the last book she saved him and died in his place. How can you not like her?

Come on she tricked Thomas (not to mention making him think she cared for him ) and back stabbed him (not literally ) and almost killed him, she's terrible I hate her after book 2, but she had no choice she had to do it for his survivla

Teresa acted like benidict arnold in the second book - BoyGenius234

12 Brenda

BRENDA IS AMAZING! I don't know why but she is my all time favorites! I think it is cause her and thomas kissed and I love thomas. - TheMazeRuner

I hate Brenda, she takes Thomas from Teresa, among other things. I really do hate her, it's extremely hard to explain.

Brenda is a strong and absolute cool character. She helped Thomas and the Gladers to escape from WICKED. I love her, because she wants to survive and the she's acting. If I would be in the "WICKED GAMES" I wanted to like her: strong and independent.

Brenda sucks more than any fictio al character. I wish she had to die and get chrushed instead of Teresa

14 Alby

I liked him better in the movies. - 906389

he's black

15 Chancellor Paige
16 Ariz

I love Aris so much cause he's there for Thomas when his friend was being kidnapped

17 Ben

He's a nobody, he's a minor character and there's nothing special about him.

I also like Ben I felt so bad for him that's why he didn't deserve to die

18 Mark

He is a main character in the prequel.

Interesting... Really?
Lol, not like you'll respond.
