Top Ten Best Minecraft Story Mode Characters

The Top Ten

1 Lukas

Me personally I don't see Lukas as the best character ever, but I can clearly understand why so many people think Lukas is the best character. And in most cases I agree with them. He seems to be able to warm up to a lot of people, even those he considered rivals. But as the story progressed I saw the rivalry between Jesse and Lukas as just a competitive duo (to be honest with my opinion, I don't see that romantically) Plus I did like to see in episode 3 that he was regretting his actions in the first episode and also feeling guilty about not being brave enough to help Gabriel and Petra. It's not his fault, he's never been through these adventures before, he's never had to work with people his former friends don't like. (Speaking of which, I do wish there was an explanation to why The Order of the Pig (what I called Jesse's gang) and the Ocelots even became rivals in the first place) And Lukas does change later on to become a braver and skilled fighter, while also siding with The Order ...more

Aside from Lukas, I love how these descriptions and fan fictions of these characters show more depth and personality into these guys than the actual series does. (Not a hater, I'm someone who sees this series as a guilty pleasure and think it's writing is awful, totally different things, even though I still love the scenery, Petra, Lukas, and Jetra, I said it, I don't think Story Mode is good, but I love Jetra, don't @ me just because I'm complex) It just shows how much wasted potential the series had.

Lukas is so cool

at first I was like WHO IS THIS BLONDIE!? Then when he joined our gang to find Ivor I was like NOOO WHY LET THE PERFECT BOY JOIN LET A CHICKED OR SOMEONE ELSE JOIN CAUSE I AM NOT WORKING WITH THIS PERFECT BOY NU UH NOT TODAY! but then I let it slip since we needed a blondie in the team. This is the truth at first I didn't ship Lukas and Jesse because I think I might of payed more attention to Reuben but when episode 5 started I started to notice a strong relationship between the two but I still didn't ship them and just saw them as two caring friends. When I finished that episode I watched other Youtubers play the game and down in the comments I could see people shipping Jesse and Lukas (on female Youtubers) when I played episode 6 I noticed that Lukas hanged out with Jesse a lot and I also noticed how much Jesse stood up for him I wasn't sure if it was just a really close friend thing but I thought about it and Lukas' other friends NEVER stood up for Lukas ...more

He's the best character in the game. He's much more human than any other, and quite relatable. Starts out as a jerk and a coward, but is sypathetic to Jesse. Though he isn't accepted at first, the group eventually warms up to him and he proves to be a valuable member of the team. Goes on to become a brave, skilled fighter. The game wouldn't be complete without him.

2 Jesse

I actually have a confession I need to make...

At least in season 1...

I think Jesse is a good example of a Mary Sue!


I don't think he is the worst I've seen, and I still think he is a good character as he does get better by season 2. But in the first season, it was honestly a pretty bad start for him. Think about it, he is beloved by all of his friends, is a very powerful fighter, everyone relies on him so much they don't even bother to try themselves, he almost never gets blamed for anything (except episode 7) and he takes up an enormous amount of screen time that there was barely room for other characters. You can argue that he's the one you play as and therefore you have to see his perspective and do stuff. But that's no excuse for the others barely doing anything. Character a player controls or not, you still need to give your characters good personality and have actual flaws and less screen time.

However, I will acknowledge that he ...more

Jesse is a pretty difficult character to find a personality out of. And the reason for that is because we play as him/her, we control what he/she says and does. And yet, it doesn't effect people seeing Jesse as this selfless person. For those reasons, I can see a lot of people who don't like MC:SM (trust me, there are a lot of haters out there) calling Jesse a blank slate, especially for a main character. But I think I can come up with some reasons why Jesse does have personality:

1. He/she is clearly a fan of the Order of the Stone, he/she was sword fighting an armor stand, had a poster of Gabriel, and he/she and his/her friends attend the building competition every year, not to mention he/she was the one who came up with the building ideas. This could prove Jesse is a creative person and takes all this inspiration from the order. Plus he/she was admiring that poster of Gabriel in the training montage with the 'I'm going to work hard and be just like you someday' ...more

He is amazing, mostly because he is the protagonist. Also, you can control him

Jesse is my favorite character. He could be of been in the number one spot, but, Lukas is a cool character as well.

3 Reuben

He is so cute! I don't get either Reuben had to die in episode 4. I was so depressed. The story was happy because of him.

Who wouldn't say Reuben is the best character in MC:SM? He and Jesse had such an adorable owner and pet relationship. And Reuben as a character was not just your standard cute animal sidekick. Sure he's already adorable and cute with the dragon roar thing they did in the beginning. But he's not'so cute that he acts cute' or'so cute but he has no purpose for being here' he's not a magical girl mascot that's what I'm trying to say here. Reuben was full of fun loving personality, he was energetic, playful, optimistic, and is always caring and loyal towards Jesse. Not to mention he is such a boss when it comes to people who threatened Jesse or made him/her feel hurt. You just know that if you have a pet, you and that pet are going to have a cute relationship. A lot of the time I wonder what Reuben is doing because he was so full of emotion and personality that you want to know more. And by episode 4 when Jesse was comforting Reuben outside the cave, I wanted to scream "Stop being so ...more

I actually cried when Reuben died, while I didn't when Magnus did, because Reuben is so deep as a character in the story. He was cute, loyal, brave, friendly, funny, and lots of other things too. He's just got everything that makes up for a great main character. He made a whole lot of difference in Story Mode, and he even saved the day when the situation was the most dire for the protagonist.

Only thing that doesn't make sense about this character is that he has fallen multiple times and jumped quite high heights, but doesn't seem to take any fall damage until the really big fall at the end of Episode 4, which proved lethal.

You have been a huge contribution to the entire world of Story Mode, may you rest in peace.

Honestly, I really wouldn't want that adorable pig to die at episode 4. I mean, WHY? If he was in the later episodes, MCSM would've been better. But, I'm glad no other people in the Jesse Gang died.

One of the best part is that when reuben roared.
Aww! He's so CUTE

If Reuben was in Episode 5 - Reuben would kick Aiden's, Gill's, and Maya's butt with his head.
If Reuben was in Episode 6 - I would like to see Reuben's face when he sees White Pumpkin (CassieRose)

4 Petra

I always found Petra to be one of the most complex and endearing characters in MC:SM. Mainly because of her development all throughout the series and her relationship with Jesse. (Call me a Jetra shipper if you want) She started out in the series as this tough risk taking and sarcastic mercenary that was attempting to stand for what she believes is right examples are when she attempted to convince Jesse to get along with Lukas and when she tried to steal back her skull from Ivor. But it did seem like the others believed she can take care of herself or get the idea she doesn't want them around. But Jesse was different, he/she entirely complements Petra and looks out for her and I think that's why Petra told most of her secrets to Jesse, she sees that he's trying to understand her and I think she saw him as a chance to gain an ally. (Sure, she respected Lukas also, but he seemed to only go with her because he had to. And Lukas did say "Everyone knows you don't mess with Petra" ...more

So we meet again. Last time I was here I wrote the whole 'Jesse is a Mary Sue and he's not a very good protagonist' thing in Jesse's section. Which by the way I realized he took second place away from poor Reuben. To be clear, I am not a Story Mode hater, but I won't deny that I have a lot of problems with it. But there's always something strangely entertaining on pointing out the bad stuff while also remembering the good stuff. The point I wanted to make in that essay was how much Jesse has improved as a character. But was he/she my favorite character? The answer is no, but he wins award for most improved. I don't remember but I think I remember saying before that my favorite character was actually Petra. So now I can have some fangirling fun and talk about why I think Petra is best girl:

From the beginning we knew that Petra had a job as a traveling mercenary, but we never got much hints on why she would pick this job until season 2 where we got a lot of backstory from her ...more

Petra is very well-written, some say she's overrated but I don't agree. She has the most character development and screen time (besides Jesse) and is in most of the episodes. She hardly ever is OOC and isn't one of those characters with a singular personality trait. In season 1 we see her as a tough adventurer that doesn't seem to need anyone, but in season 2 Petra is more exposed. We see her desire to be a recognized hero and be on the same ground as Jesse, her insecurities over her friends, and her bond with Jesse. She isn't just the tough hero, she's a flawed individual that doesn't want to be a sidekick or lose her friends. And yet we all still root for her. Petra's character development is excellent, especially for a game that is meant to be more about the plot than the characters. She will always be my personal favorite.

Hi guys. I think that Jesse is the best character, but there was one person who asked for a fanfic or investigation for Petra. Well, in my opinion, I think she was once part of a VERY poor village. Once she was old enough, she went exploring in the mines to get some treasure to become richer. But she blacks out punched by a zombie. Soon enough, a kind villager family take her in, and once she learns about her past, she gets angry and runs away, trying to find her village. But she can't, so she goes to a small town. She was looking for a room, and a kind innkeeper named Peter takes her in (Peter's Jesse's father) and she meets his kid, Jesse. Jesse tells her he once built a storage facility, and she can take anything she wants from there. She thanks him, and they develop a good friendship. Petra hates taking anything she didn't earn, but she couldn't be picky right now. With the materials she found, she made a survival house and went around trying to be the best adventurer she could ...more

5 Ivor

He is very funny and good at making potions. I forgive him for making the Wither Storm. (I mean Soren deserved I guess)

I'd actually prefer Ivor over the Admin as the better villian. And Ivor won because while the Admin has an understandable backstory and he is and absolute savage, he does still feel like a Joker ripoff sometimes. Ivor on the other hand, craved adventure and excitement, so, I assume that's why he joined the Order of the Stone. But then the ender dragon battle happened and Ivor went into complete grief when he knew that the order were frauds and didn't deserve the kind of fame and attention they got. And my theory is Ivor was the one who made the order break up, I guess the way it was done was when Soren left and Ivor told the others to think about what they've earned from lying and left. Even years later, Ivor's grief made him release the wither storm and treat others with no respect, (to the point I couldn't really blame Petra for not liking Ivor, he never did give her that diamond, and he released chaos that nearly killed thousands of people including Petra and her friends, and I ...more

Ivor is my favorite. He is smart, funny, and has a memorable personality. The ninja thing isn't really my favorite, but he's still great.

In the beginning he seems to be the bad guy but actually is not. Likes potions

6 Olivia

Friend of Jesse and member of the New order of the stone, good engineer, uses mostly machines as weapons

I like turtles

She's by far the best character in MC story mode.

Olivia is descent. I can fully see where she had a character arc with her idolozing Elleguard and very much seeing engineers supposingly better than her. However, I feel like they should have gave her more screentime to demonstrate her insecurity. In some points, she just comes off as a Negative Nacy. She's constantly too negative about everything. I get it's a showing of insecurity, but if they just gave Olivia more screen time to envolve around that, I would have fully called her a great character. It's a shame really

7 Pama

He's cool! PAMA, your amazing buddy!

He is not evil. I love him

Pama is evil


8 Axel

Fatter then Donald Trump

Friend of Jesse and a member of the New order of the stone, is a good griefer, fight with TNT or fists

14 Radar

Jesse's intern/assistant goes nuts when he's hangin' out with 'em

why radar no number one?

He has a really good personality and he tries to be brave for Jesse and is willing to do something. And he is ADORABLE! X3

THE BEST! please vote for!

15 Soren

He's over hated in my opinion his page on the heroes wiki was fldeleted because of someone's comment even though siren has never actually done anything cynically

Leader of the Order of the stone and Master builder, is a powerful and wise man, but turns out to be a liar

Nice beard

16 DanTDM

Dan is the best
Why is he in the 17 place.
He might kill sparkelz but it does he need to be in the 17 place. If you don't know stampy lied 3 times first he said he wasn't nervous but he was second he said he was average in his reds tone skill but he was an expert third this one shock me but remember he said dan might lie about someone stolen his flint and still but he lied, he said that to protect him self.
I don't mean that this words hurting stampy cat I still love him because he is a really nice guy but here dan deserve more. This letter for TEAMTDM:) I still love stampy if you don't know

17 The Admin

Season 2 was a blast with this guy.

Yah cool

he rocks


18 StampyCat

I love Stampy. Such a Good character though


I would vote Dan,but Stampy was the better character, he had the most emotion, and he was the funniest in my opinion

The best Character because he had the most to do in episode 6 he should fear,happy,sad,anger and more emotions and olso without him the episode would not be there so he is the best character (and youchuber) in my opinion

19 Jack

Why is he so low? He's one of my favorites

20 Ellegaard

I think shes a little mean

Female Einstein

Ellegaard was totally AWESOME!

I bet you'd be better than Magnus

21 Hadrian

He is better than all villains combined. I just remembered most of his lines and his last scenes are fun

Hadrian is the best villain

I love Hadrian

22 Slab

Gladiator in the spleef games,hated Jesse then sooner got convinced by Jesse(again)

23 Aiden

Aiden is very... complicated, to say the least. I have some theories on him.
In Ep. 1, he is with the Ocelots and kind of a jerk. Gill and Maya also tease, but Lukas simply ignores them. If you pay close attention, you notice Lukas never actively bothers them. I think that when Aiden heard about the Ocelots, the group was on top and he wanted some attention. When he did join, going from loser to winner felt great to him. He started to become overconfident and selfish. He was so unprepared to get beat by Jesse's 'loser gang'. Power like that can change anyone.
In Ep. 5, you have a run-in wih Aiden's gang outside the temple. Thy reveal to you that they dumped Lukas and rebranded to become the Blaze Rods. I think their reasoning for ditching Lukas was because of his close friendship with Jesse, who Aiden is very jealous of. Aiden wants to be back in the spotlight. He liked that feeling of power so much, he was willing to do anything to feel it again. He was ...more

The fight in episode 5 with him and Jesse was awesome. He was an amazing villain, and his actor did a great job on him. His speeches as he was fighting Jesse sent chills down my spine, he was full of anger during that battle, and you could see it.

I feel like there was more of a reason to Aiden going from bully to villain that the game didn't give us (which is not necessarily a bad thing). That's why I chose to take him with me.

A true jerk and a sour victim of jealousy.

24 Lluna


25 Magnus
