Top 10 Best Minecraft Story Mode Characters

The Top Ten
1 Petra

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.

Ok, Petra thinks no one cares about her, and that Jesse doesn't need her anymore. She thinks she is going to turn EVIL at one point. She thinks she's not important. She thinks she's not a hero. Petra is an emotion mess, and I love it. Petra isn't a sue like Jesse. Jesse has no flaws. Petras big flaw is that she is mentally unstable. That is a great flaw to Make deep character, and that's what Petra is. Petra most likely has depression, but guess what? She doesn't even think she can talk with her best friend about it. You know why? Because she thinks her BEST FRIEND DOESN'T CARE ABOUT HER! It's really just sad. I love you Petra!

2 Lukas

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.

I mean, plain and simple, he really is the best. Always left out in just about every major confrontation or battle which sucks.

Lukas has always been my favorite character. When he fell off Sky City in Ep. 5, I cried. When he was chipped in Ep. 7, I almost cried, and I (without hesitance) unchipped him first. In Ep. 8 with the spleef incident, I cried. When Season 2 started, I wanted to know where Lukas was. I was relieved to not see him in the Sunshine Institute, but still worried about him. The after credit scene of Ep. 12 got me tearing up. In Ep. 13 when he is covered by the bedrock, that made me furious. Telltale just ALWAYS shoves Lukas to the side, out of the way of the major boss battles.

I love how he is compassionate, and very much a team player. He also has feelings for Petra (I ship Luketra). If you choose to save Petra for the Wither, she gets Wither Sickness. Lukas is very concerned about her health in Ep. 3. He even lists symptoms that are proof of Petra being sick.
Lukas is a great character that changes the way I play immeasurably. He is truly a fan favorite.

3 Jesse

I don't like it when people call he/she a Mary/Gary sue/Stu. Jesse started off as a humble amateur who just wanted to do what's right into a hero. They gained experience along their journey, making them talented. I like to think of Jessie as confident and curious individual who always thinks outside the box.

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 affect 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' look

2. Jesse is kind of a nerd. Not exactly the scientist, bookworm kind of nerd (even though in season 2 he/she did they they used to read a lot) But he/she was always the one in the group to come up with ideas quickly, no matter what the choice is. When they were looking up to him/her to lead them, and if you think about it, there was a good reason for why they would decide this. And it's not because Jesse's the main character, it was because they either saw or knew that they could trust him/her with anything and he/she would be great and smart at deciding what to do. So in a way, he/she is an intelligent and responsible leader

3. Depending on our choices, Jesse either shows his heart or he doesn't. But even if a player tries to treat other characters like trash, there are not that many options to do that. Like when Petra asked you to help her with her trade, you don't have the option to reject her. Maybe there was a reason for that, because you don't want to make your player too... more

4 Reuben

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.

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 adorable with your relationship Reuben Jesse! Continue that and you'll be in grief if anything bad happens to Reuben! " I really wasn't surprised that Reuben went into the wither storm with Jesse because he cares about Jesse that much. But when Reuben died I was so shocked, and I was crying. Jesse and Reuben had such an adorable relationship where they both had so much realistic love and care for an owner and a pet friendship. And then Telltales just going to kill off Reuben?! That's just- I don't even know. It just didn't seem fair. *sniff* I just watched Reuben fall out of the wither storm and I was shocked about what I just witnessed. But then I saw Jesse fall out too and I thought "Reuben's going to be okay then, right? He made it out alive. Telltales just scaring us for dramatic effect, the pigs not really dead." But no, he really died. I started to cry when Jesse called Reuben a hero and the look on his/her face when holding the porkchop. (Especially the female... more

5 Ivor

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.

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

Ivor is just hilarious. I also like how different he is from the old Order of the Stone.

6 Gabriel

Gabriel is strong, brave and just a nice person in general. At first glance, he only asks Jesse and the gang to help him because they're the only ones who didn't run away from the Witherstorm. He puts so much trust in them even though they just met, and provided Jesse encouragement before they split up towards the end of episode one. He's skilled in sword fighting and his got a great sense of humor! He's always playing his ego for laughs like when Jesse said that "You don't look so good" when he had the Withersickness, and Gabriel responded with "Because I look great" He even ran (or at least tried to run since it was the wrong direction) straight into danger when he rediscovered the Order's lie to help his friend, despite knowing what he was doing and that he was going to be doing it without the command block. I bet he's trying to make up for the Order's past mistakes and trying to become a hero for real, since Ivor said he was doing the wandering warrior thing in Season 2. Gabriel ...more

7 Olivia

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

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

I like turtles

8 Axel
9 Radar

I think that Radar is Reuben's reincarnation, whether it was intended by Telltale or not. When you think about it, tey actually have a LOT in common. To name a few...
1. They both get black eyes (determinant)
2. They're both adorable
3. They both are surprisingly courageous
4. Both of their names start with R
5. Jesse says in Giant Consequences that Reuben would have loved Radar
And that's only a few! There are probably plenty more that I don't know. Either way, Radar is a fun character with an amazing, unique personality.

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


"Greetings, my friends.
You will all be made useful.
Then I will get to your homeworld and make everyone there useful, including your good friends Axel and Olivia. Yay.
Your running makes me sad."

Oh yeah, something doesn't make sense about Episode 7. The primary source of "deaths" is to be captured by mind-controlled people and mobs and be "made useful". But one big question - after the player is made useful, isn't there still the possibility that Harper is going to save them?

He's just a delight. Episode 7 had to be the most interesting of the 4 episodes in the portal arc. Just put his character in a short summary:
"I am P.A.M.A. Which stands for whatever it stands for. I am a computer that doesn't understand how human brains work in reality. So I'll overdo my programming to make living things useful and brainwash all of you! Yay! 🎵"
Also, episode 7 is the perfect episode for memes thanks to that last line.

The Contenders
11 Winslow

He is a cat. That's kinda all he does. Be a cat.

12 Lluna

I CAN'T be the only one that likes Lluna more than Reuben.

13 Emily
14 Xara
15 Jack

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

16 Ellegaard
17 Nell

Nell is awesome she's the only reason you get your friends back and of course her amazing surfer dude accent I mean what's not to love?

18 The Admin

Season 2 was a blast with this guy.

19 Soren

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

20 DanTDM

He is the best ever!

21 Milo
22 StampyCat

I watch stampy's YouTube channel, and when he reacted to himself it was HILARIOUS! He was the "bravest character" by far lol and he is funny. They brought him back along with Stacy in season two, which was a good choice. I love stampy!

23 Hadrian

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

24 Harper
