Best Teen Wolf Characters

The Top Ten

1 Stiles Stilinski

Awkward, sarcastic, and adorable. Stiles is the cutest, funniest character on the show, and he constantly leaves the entire fandom wondering: How is he still single? - princesstea98

I found Stiles to be the best character in show from beginning to end. I was urged to watch Teen Wolf by many people, and eventually I did but very late on in the game. Except, for the majority of season one, I was just constantly cringing at Scott, Allison, Lydia and Jackson, because all of them were so unbelievably cliche that I could hardly bare it. Derek, on the other hand, was a good character from the beginning, but he was not always there and his character was so complex that it took some time to relate to him. Stiles was the polar opposite to all of this; from the very beginning, Stiles made season one decent, made it bearable, almost enjoyable to me, before season two onwards from where the series became far better.
The most important thing you have to realise is that Stiles' character foundation, if you tore his character down to the bare bones, was 'the forgettable best friend character', 'the supporting role' and 'replaceable'. But Dylan O'Brien (his actor), the ...more

He's so funny. By far my favorite character - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Stiles is the sweetest, loyalest, most sarcastic, loving person you’ll ever see. Stiles is awkward and quirky but that’s why all the fans (myself included) love him. He means the world, so I’ll never let go of my Stiles Stilinski.

2 Derek Hale

Derek Hale is so amazing, I love his character so much. He cares about everyone even if he never shows it, but it proves so much about his character when he told the Alphas to let his sister go, when he was the one with the hole in the chest. He always tries to protect the others, even when it gets him almost killed. In season two Scott says that Derek turned Isaac, Boyd and Erica because of power, but that wasn't true. Derek could have turned anyone he wanted, not just teenagers who needed it, whether it be to escape his abusive father, recover from an illness, or have a pack. While some could argue that Derek only chose them because they would be most likely to say yes, he can turn anyone, whether they give permission or not, doesn't really matter in the long run. Maybe it really was about power in the beginning, but in the beginning of season three, Derek outright said that it was his life for theirs. He was willing to die for them, and even later on when he said that the only ...more

Derek is a tragic hero, whose relationship history is so unfortunate and devastating that even Scott's horrible grades cannot match it. However, Derek is such a lovable character in spite of his temper (and naivety) and many other flaws. But that's really what makes him so special. After all, how can you not like a character, who gave up on being an Alpha to save his sister's life? (Even if we still need so many more information to how Cora was poisoned by mistletoe in the first place. MTV, hello! We would like to know why this plot hole is here! It would have been way cooler for there to be two Alphas in Beacon Hills, anyway; just saying.)

Besides, Derek goes through such a major and well made character development, it's impossible not to like him, whether those developments started out badly; it still made Derek the person he is today, and he should so much return to this end show of season 6.

Derek is such a strong man that is afraid of almost nothing. Also, his style is awesome and is hot (but this isn't important) - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

I like his bromance with Stiles in season 1 though. He's the best.

3 Scott Mccall

Other than the fact that he's a werewolf, Scott's a pretty typical teenager, which is probably why I love him so much. Even if I still can't quite figure out why his jaw is so lopsided. - princesstea98

Scott is a really cool person. He is a werewolf and is still a typical teenager rather than a werewolf. Also, I really like the actor who portrays him (Tyler Posey). - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

HE IS awesome.. his smile covers him up for everything..

The Alpha is true

4 Lydia Martin

Lydia is the strongest and most influential character in the whole show. Season 4 basically revolves around Lydia and her powers and she continually saves everyone but sadly gets none of the credit. She went through the hell in Season 5 and came out of it stronger and braver than ever before. Not only this, Lydia is a great example for young female viewers. Lydia illustrates beautifully how being smart is cool, and that you can have both a brain and be pretty. Her intelligents has saved the pack on multiple occasions and she has received no praise. Looking back on the first couple seasons, I would of never expected Lydia to be this important to the show, but Teen Wolf wouldn't be the show it is today without the Badass Banshee

Although my personal favourite character is Stiles, Lydia Martin closely follows. With her strong will and mysterious 'know-it-all' condition, she is just as bad-ass as Allison was. She can force her voice to have physical impact using her hands, her scream can kill; It can shatter someone's skull. She can predict death, and is a major surviving character who has played a huge part through out the entire series. I really love her, she is simply fantastic.

Lydia is my favorite female character on Teen Wolf. I used to ship her and Stiles SO hard... still do, actually, but I can see that it's a lost cause. She's got Parrish, he's got Malia: it's not happening. I wish she was still as spunky as she was in the first few seasons, but she's grown a lot over the years, and gained a lot of fearlessness; thankfully, though, she's still super sassy! I love her!

Lydia is the best character by far! Her character development shone the most throughout the series and she deserves to be number 1 on this list. I’ve never seen such a detailed character.

Also Holland is a phenomenal actress! You can see the emotion she puts into portraying Lydia and one of the best actresses/actors on the show! One of the episode/s that shows her amazing acting skills is in season 5 when she is in Eichen House. She acted from the heart and it felt so real!

She is the strongest character in my opinion and is a queeen! She is independent and sassy and beautiful. Also her relationship with Stiles is one of he best I’ve ever seen, they feed off of each others happiness and I was delighted when they FINALLY started their relationship! I just love Lydia so much!

5 Allison Argent

Seriously Allison is amazing she's our little fallen warrior her character development had been incredible she went from the naive sweet new girl in town oblivious to the supernatural to strong brave badass fearless werewolf hunter I don't know how anyone can hate her. From her romances with Scott and Isaac, Her friendship with Lydia and not to mention her strong bond with her dad. She's been through so much her mothers death, her auntie going crazy and murdering her friends as well as her dad dissapering so when Allison died my heart broke but Chris was right when he said "Allison died saving her friends she died a hero". That shows who Allison was she would have done anything for the people she cared about my favourite Allison quotes are

1. I can take care of myself
2. I wanna feel powerful
3. Its because it doesn't hurt.
4. Don't frown Lydia someone could be falling in love with your smile
5. I'm not fearless I'm terrified I'm always terrified.

So yeah ...more

While Allison gets under my skin a lot, I still love her. She's tough and vulnerable, all at the same time. - princesstea98

I loved her. She kicked butt and always was so helpful. She could defend herself..: I will always miss her.

I just love Allison

6 Isaac Lahey

Isaac... oh my goodness I miss him so much. He left so abruptly, and I couldn't handle that. He was such an adorable character, even on his own, but when he was in love with Allison... My heart couldn't handle the love! Plus I love the funny shape of his ear. Random thought, go check it out, it's so cute.

I wish he came back, I miss him so much..He was different from the others and I just loved him. Loyal, Sweet, and Funny. Daniel was simply perfect at portraying Isaac.

Isaac is like an adorable kicked puppy that you just want to cuddle and love. - princesstea98

Isaac has some great one liners, his character development is brilliant and once in alliegance with Scott he is incredibly loyal,
I liked their friendship.
I liked his relationship development with Allison
Overall he was just a very likeable character.

7 Melissa Mccall

Scott's mom may be the most perfect mom in television history. - princesstea98

Mama McCall FOREVER! And how cool is it that her name in real life is Melissa too? Way too cool for me to handle.

An underrated supermom

Melissa is great

8 Danny Māhealani

Hot. Not my favorite but he is hot. Also, I loved his relationship with Ethan I mean that was perfect. Pretty much everyone ships that.

Everybody likes danny #moredanny

O M G I miss him he was good

An actual fleshed out homosexual character. Danny being gay isn't treated like a huge thing or anything, just a ' Oh Danny's gay? Cool love that guy' and those amazing moments when he's with a boyfriend, they're done well.

Although voting for him because 'he's hot' devalues him as a character since funnily enough that's his actor...

9 Sheriff Stilinski

It should be illegal to not love him. I cry every time he mentions Stiles' mom. - princesstea98

Sheriff Stilinski is the most loving Father. He's smart, creative, unconditionally loving and an integral part of the team. I adore this guy.

I love he father son relationship with stiles (super sweet)

10 Malia Tate

She is so funny like Stiles. She makes the cutest couple with Stiles. She hates math. (Who likes it? ) She is helpful. She is kind. She is sarcastic. She kicks butt. She is tied for first for my favorite teen wolf characters.

BEST CHARACTER EVER! Should be way above allison and shes so beautiful and so funny. Shes so realistic. Shes a girl who lost her family and has actual family issues. She isn't the cleverest girl but still triesher best. Lydia and Allison are overrated. Malia might not be the most popular girl in her school but she still slays way more than stupid allison and lydia (who are both ugly and gross)

She's badass and gets some of the funniest lines. In season 4 when the sheriff asks what her favorite food was and she said "Deer" I lost it. Lol

Beautiful inside and outside, malia is my spirit animal, and Shelley goals!

The Contenders

11 Kira Yukimura

Kira is my favourite female character, she is just so amazing! And absolutely stunning as well as fantastic with a katana. She is an absolute badass! Anyone hating on her is just jealous that after Scott and Allison broke up, he fell for Kira.

Wanted to comment on how bad they developed her. You wanna know how to wield a sword okay did it in a night. You wanna know how to use your powers nah I got it. She had potential but they tried to shove her down our throats.

Kira has so much of potential, both story wise and power wise. She is also a katana wielding badass.

I LOVE KIRA! She is so cute and strong. She's very beautiful. I love her and her sword! She is amazing!
Обожаю ее

12 Chris Argent

Argent is a badass werewolf hunter who turned from douche to favorite

He is amazing,lost his wife and daughter but is still a strong,bad ass character.His character development in the show really shined.

13 Peter Hale

Peter Hale is easily one of the best characters in the show, the fact that he has no morals works for him. He isn't evil, he is just greedy. He only hurts others if it is in his favour. He is funny and probably one of the best actors.

I love to hate Peter, and that makes a villain all the better. I love his somewhat morbid realism, and I can't help but understand him and his reasoning.

I wish he was more in the show. I know what he did was wrong, but I think he could because a lot of drama and problems.

After Stiles he is the best rsn to watch the show but wish he was more on the show

14 Liam Dunbar

He has anger issues but they actually give him potential to be one of the strongest werewolves.
He has a good heart, he is a combination of attributes of the original pack boys.
His role has gotten bigger and bigger and he has become more important as the show has developed.

Liam is just so cute and so sweet. He has trouble controlling himself but will eventually manage for the safety of his friends and those that he loves.

He has been trying to protect everyone he loves and he thinks it's his fault. Also I feel like he sacrifice himself for Scott and his pack

Scott and Stiles son lol

15 Coach Finstock

Honestly, I don't know how he isn't higher. I originally came onto this page just enjoying reading the comments, but Coach is just that forgotten character that makes the show that much better. Just imagine how much the show would lack with Coach! The actor that portrays him does an excellent job.

Love him! His interaction with the kids is perfect. I love the conference with Stiles' dad!

He's the second. Best character next to styles he's incredibly funny and I love him

Should be at least #10

16 Theo Raeken

He is such a badass, but he is so hot!
From loving him as Mike in PLL, to hating him as Theo in TW, shows how good of a actor he is! Support him!

He is such a complex character. He deserved to be treated with so much more respect. I love his story and it’s so cute how even though they don’t let him into Scott’s pack, he still tries. He’s such a trooper and I love him.

17 Jackson Whittemore

Jackson is so hot, he makes steam look cool. It should be illegal for him to wear a shirt. Okay, before I start rambling about his abs, I guess I should talk about his character. Jackson cracks me up, because he's your typical high school jock, who drives a nice car and has perfect hair. Despite his self-obsession, I still love him to bits and pieces. - princesstea98

Jackson can be a jerk but when he is around Lydia... Lydia brings out the best in him. He cares for Lydia. Which I think is adorable. Even though he can be a jerk at times. Before he left the show he showed who he was becoming.

Jackson has more about him than that you can see at first glance... He's amazing

I mean what would the show be without him? His lines are the best, and Colton Haynes delivers them so flawlessly. I mean... he cracks me up all the time and everybody needs a self loving cocky douchebag am I right? I'm so so sooo very sad that he had to leave so early GAH! (notice that I didn't comment on how gorgeous he is, if I started talking about his abs and that perfect jawline... I would WAY pass the word limit...)

18 Cora Hale

She is alright but we never really got to see her character. I mean if she was used more and she had a story top 10. However, I think her character was underdeveloped and was there for such little time. I liked Oliver better from that one episode.

Such a useless character.

Why is she here...

SHES SUPER UNDERRATED.

19 Boyd

Boyd is SO sweet! He died way too quickly! He definitely deserves to be above Cora! Who even cares about Cora Hale? Let's get Boyd to #15 at least! My baby...

Died to soon and he would have been cute with Erica if they both didn't die

I love boyd, he was really quiet though and very serious.

20 Jordan Parrish

Not my favorite but I like him. He is funny, nice, and understanding. It doesn't hurt that he happens to be hot.

Best supernatural creature and has best connection with Lydia

Strong funny and best supernatural creature

He is best

21 Erica Reyes

He is the good twin and I love the way he turns out to be good and also loves his brother, Aiden

Awe!

23 Hayden Romero Hayden Romero
24 Deucalion

Unlike Scott, this character seems more genuine and he is the alpha of alphas

Best Character ever

I love him and I wish to become a beast like him and say I AM THE ALPHA OF ALPHAS, I AM THE APEX OF APEX PREDATORS, I AM DEATH DESTROYER OF WORLD, I AM DEUCALION THE DEMON WOLF

Why is he so low... obvs the best. one slash could have torn the beast in half

25 Julia Baccari/Jennifer Blake (the Darach)

I loved the mystery about this character and the reveal. I found her one of the most compelling Teen Wolf villains.

The best villain of the show, by far.

26 Mason

Not my favorite but he is pretty awesome. He is super sweet. When Lydia stained her carpet he was so nice.

27 Deputy Parrish

Sexy godd

28 Aiden

Adorable!

29 Hayden

I love her! She is independent and sarcastic

Annoying.

30 Corey Bryant

I like Corey because he is really cute I love his relationship with Mason. They make a really cute couple and Corey he is brave, shy, cute, he is really hot and he is positive.

31 Brett Talbot
32 Braeden
33 Victoria Argent

I know she a isn't exactly the best character but when she died it was very emotional especially for allison

34 Dr. Deaton

He is so strange and supportive. Plus fearless.

35 Kora
36 Jeff Argent

He is so cool, loyal, nice and smart. He is always helping the others despite his up bringing, he is the only good Argent left.

JEFF ARGENT IS NOT A CHARACTER

37 Gerard Argent
38 Kate Argent

Bitch needed to die

39 Tracy Stewart
40 Lucas

Half werewolf, half scorpion maybe?
