Top Ten Maze Runner Characters

The Top Ten


I think Newt is probably the most human character I've ever seen. It's hard not to like him, but most important, I liked the fact that he gave hope, no matter what happens.. I know it kinda sounds personal, but when I watched and read the Maze Runner trilogy for the first time, I was in a really dark place. I needed a character like Newt, and even if I really cried when he died, he'll always have a huge place in my heart. Something that I still think about, is his suicide attempt. Kinda hard, but that makes me feel like he is human, and that makes it even more likable. Even if he was a dark place, he was still looking out for his friends. Plus, last point I swear, he's played in the movies by Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and his interpretation and acting were completely amazing and breathtaking! All of this explains to me why he's the best character -ever for me-.

Newt is my favorite character of all time! Seeing him turning as a crank and die was very heartbreaking for me. Plus, he is cute! Newt's actor who played is a great actor!

Newt is the best. He's super kind and he welcomes Thomas right away. He's what keeps the glade together - Alby knows what he's doing but Newt can get it done

Newt deserved better. He deserved to be immune. Great character. One of my all time favourite fictional characters.


Minho is a brave character. Did you know that Minho's actor was born on my birthday! But the year is different, of course! Minho and Newt have been friends for a long time and seeing Newt that he was dead must have been heart-broken for Minho. Minho even put Newt's name on the stone wall at the end of Death Cure.

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

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

I love him so much and his sass and sarcasm is just adorable. He holds to group together and is there for everyone all the time.


Chuck is the only kid in the glade and he died because he saved Thomas form being shot by Gally. Chuck is great!

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


Honestly, he was a piece of "klunk" when he died in the book, he deserved a better way to die. Poor Winston. And I was so, so angry when I discovered that in the film he didn't have any acne.

Winston is one of the most underrated characters for sure

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.

It was sad when we heard the gun shot in the distance


Gally's actor is a great actor! Gally want to redeem himself after he was stung and has killed Chuck. Gally even put Chuck's name on the stone wall at the end of Death Cure. This shows that he is sorry for what he had done to Chuck when he was stung. Gally is a great redeemer!

I still don't know how he survived, but it was good seeing him again.

Gally has always been my favorite character since the first movie & book. I think he’s a very brave, and headstrong character, painted in a bad light at first. He deserves more recognition. I especially loved his redemption in The Death Cure. Gally is the best character, in my opinion.

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?


He is like the brave leader that tries to protect everybody, but he screws it up ever time.

Thomas is the main character in the whole series. Thomas is a kind and brave leader who would do anything to help his friends.

Thomas is a pretty sweet, caring guy. I think he's a good main character.

Its funny how Thomas isn't the first place, he is the main character


Brenda is a brave, strong female character in the Maze Runner series! It must have been sad for Brenda to lose her brother when she was little. Brenda is a independent girl who would do to help others. Does anybody remember that Thomas save Brenda from becoming a crank by using his blood!?

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.

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

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.


Frypan is a great cook! Frypan has a warm heart of gold and brings a little magic in his food.

Frypan knows how to cook...

A great shank.

Good character


Honestly, I hated her at first, but when her real goal came into view she became my favorite female character. Brenda was like this holy character who never did anything wrong and Teresa, who did make mistakes and tried to fix them, had to die. Brenda should've died she is a pretty much useless character. Teresa wanted to find a cure, not kill the kids. I think Ava Paige and Teresa had the right goal and the wrong ways of getting it.

Teresa is my favorite girl character in the Maze Runner but knowing that she was a traitor to Thomas and his friends but she did save Thomas's life from death. Teresa's death was 3rd place after Newt and Chuck. Teresa is a great female character.

I don't..I stopped really liking Teresa after the Scorch Trials. I think Brenda is better for Thomas.

I like her because of the complexity of her character. (WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS FOR EVERY SINGLE BOOK) At first she looks good:
In book one, she seems like a very strong character and a shipping with Thomas
In book two, she seemed to some like a traitor, but to others a hero for "betraying Thomas" to save him
In book three, she saves him properly (you know how)
But in book 5 (biggest spoiler coming up), at the very end, it all comes together.
She was kind of faking it.
The book showed that she had already betrayed Thomas, but not for his safety, but for WICKED. Instead of both of them keeping their memories, she had Thomas's memories removed AND LIED TO HIM LATER ABOUT IT! She didn't care about him - all she cared about WICKED. The only thing I can't explain is her (another spoiler) escaping from WICKED.
In the end, this kind of makes me hate her. But that makes me like her. She is one of the biggest plot twists I have ever seen.

GG James Dasher.


Aris is cute in the 3rd movie and I ship him with Sonya (Newt's little sister). Aris helped Thomas and his friends to escaping form Janson in the 2nd movie.

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

The Contenders


Poor old jack. Nobody pained attention to him in the movie. I wish he was like it was in the books. Fun fact Minho got him killed in the movie and book. He got him killed in the movie by turning on the generator and in the book by leaving him behind when he got struck by lightning. I also hate how nothing happens to Minho when he gets struck by lightning but jack gets messed up.

Jack is a backround character but he really didn't deserves to die. Jack was the first person to die in the 2nd movie. Jack is a brave backround character.

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


Jorge just makes me laugh a lot and he really cares for Brenda as if she was his daughter.

Jorge you're a bad ass

He is the funniest, of course. One of my favorites.





Alby is a brave male character. Alby is a great leader! Alby helped Chuck from dieing from a griever but at the end, Alby died a heroic death to save Chuck's life!

Alby is the leader of the glade in the Maze Runner. He saved Chuck form a griever! Alby is a heroic leader!

He is secretly a kind and caring character
(and shipped with Newt)

I liked him better in the movies.

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

Newt is better.

Chancellor Paige

He was the first character I cried about. His death scene was very sad.

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

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


Sonya is the little sister of Newt. Sonya is a great character and for losing her brother must have been sad but Newt is in everyone's heart.

She was an amazing character in the movies and cared so much about everyone

Newts younger sister

Newt’s sister...


Guys, everybody is against him, everybody think that he was "wicked", I think that too, but I like the way they call him the Rat Man, I think I like his personality, and how he said that Minho should respect the elders. One of the most importants and funny characters.


Zart is a backround character in the Maze Runner. Zart's death was sad but at the end of Death Cure, his name was put on the stone wall.


Harriet is a brave girl character in the Maze Runner series. She is friends with Sonya and Aris because they were in the Maze (Group B) together.


Clint is a "doctor" in the glade with Jeff. They help people when they get hurt. Clint's death was sad because a griever killed him and I did not know that until a week ago! Clint is a great helper!

Clint was a minor character in the book, but I really liked him in the movie. He died a heroic death.


He is a main character in the prequel.

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

He was the one who helped save Deedee (Teresa) in the first place, letting everyone know that there are immune people out there, and ultimately contributing to the survival of the human race. I feel like the Kill Order doesn’t get enough recognition!


Jeff is a "doctor" in the glade with Clint. Jeff died because a griever killed him because Jeff saved Minho's life! That is what a real doctor does!

He saves minho by risking himself, does anyone realize this?
