Best Riverdale Characters


The Top Ten

1 Jughead  Jones

He's awesome. I love his personality, his story, and his nigh-unlimited knowledge of what happens in Riverdale. Also, Cole Sprouse does an excellent job portraying Jughead. I also want to see the Suite Life series because he also starred in them before Riverdale. - PhoenixAura81

This really shouldn't be a contest, Jughead is by far the best character. He's got such a complex background and he's got so much of him that we haven't seen yet, and he has such a kind heart.

He is me in school except, more weird and geeky but everything is me

he's sick

2 Cheryl Blossom

She's perfect evil and badass I love her

She is the best - bretty

Cheryl deserve to be Number 1 and I mean it. She is the one who lost so much and I think she is the one who has shown the most character development throughout the two seasons

I have a major crush on her, she's adorably evil

3 Betty Cooper

Betty is way bettter than anyother characters in riverdale... she should be numbered number 2

Lets make this whole list fair... Betty Cooper is by far the best character on Riverdale...I wouldn't mind putting cheryl and jughead above her but to be honest betty is way better than veronica since she is the center character on Riverdale for instance her character is more interesting since the main drama of the show ( jasons killer,blackhood and the sugar man) were foucusing on her and truthfully she should be on the 3rd place

4 Veronica Lodge

! Veronica... She is just AMAZING! Funny, sarcastic and loyal. Passionate, independent and strong! I could go on for hours! Veronica is clearly the best!

I love Veronica she is smart powerful and I love her so much I strive to be like her

Veronica is the best. Period.

The best character by far. Veronica just has the spectacular aura that steals the show away. I love her character so much ❤️

5 Kevin Keller

To be honest in season 1 I don't think he really was good gay representation, he was literally only there to be the gay best friend and didn't really add anything to the plot, but I think he will be more of a strong character in season 2 - pjo

Honestly the best character in the show. Adds some relief. I'm happy he will be a regular in season 2!


6 Archie Andrews

I am a jughead fan, but I do feel like archie is underrated/overhated. He can be a jerk for his own reasons, and does act like a playboy/jock. But deep down, you can tell that he is an all around good person. I mean I don't see anyone else in the gang running that fast to save cheryl by punching the ice, and also saving the life of his fathers. - wren6

Archie a good person and most interesting charactor in riverdale. He is so hansome, I hoped archie and betty together.. Archie is better than jughead

7 F.P. Jones

What 12? come on he desrves to be in the top 5

8 Joaquin DeSantos

He is the cutest and hottest thing ever and should definitely be higher on this list

9 Josie McCoy
10 Alice Cooper

I love this woman

The Newcomers

? Myles McCoy

The Contenders

11 Moose Mason
12 Reggie Mantle
13 Toni Topaz

I just love everything about her

I'm bi and a female like Toni and feel that it's great they finally are supporting woman that aren't straight on T.V. in general

Really are you kiding? She the best character in riverdale ever! Shes super badass and one of jugheads bffs
