The Top Ten
1 Mrs. Brisby

This widowed field mouse is a relatable character. She is loyal, kind, and teaches us the meaning of the word brave. She scared of the obstacles but she's doing it to save her sons life. She is devoted, and she easily makes us root for her. Did I mention she is also adorable.

One of the best animated protagonists

2 Timothy Brisby

Well, the whole movie's plot is to move the house without Timothy touching the air. Enough said. Also, just like his mother, he's adorable.

Protagonist of the sequel

3 Justin

This captain of the guard appears threatening, but seconds later, we figure out he's just a jokester. He is a brave rat, trying to figure out a way to be highly intelligent without stealing from the farmer. Also, he's great with a sword.

A very funny guy

4 Jonathan Brisby

This heroic mouse helped the rats escape from NIMH. He is viewed as a hero. He died trying to put sleeping powder in a cat's bowl

Amazing hero, but hogs his wife's glory in the sequel

5 Jeremy

This comical crow steals the #2 spot. Played by Dom DeLuise, he is the comedy relief, and something about him works. He's pathetic, and bumbly. If you like comedy reliefs, Jeremy's your top bird.

He's very likable

6 Nicodemus

This wizard rat tells the story of how the rats escaped NIMH. He is awesome.

A wise old leader
