Best Teen Wolf Characters

The Top Ten
1 Stiles Stilinski

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

Uh...Duh! I am sure I am not the only one who has been crushing on him from day one. I mean Dylan o'Brien is is my number 1 crush. But aside from his stunning looks his personality outshines it more. I mean who doesn't love his quirky,sarcastic,humorous yet adorable personality.He is always there for his friends especially Lydia.(SHIPPING STYDIA SO MUCH RIGHT NOW). It was impossible to hate him when he was evil I mean personally I thought he looked really sexy and I would love to see more void stiles.Overall its obvious he is da best. STILINSKI GOALS AM I RIGHT

He is so nice and I love his sarcasm, he's perfect and the way he cares and protects Lydia, it's like he is so loyal and attractive, HOW IS HE SINGLE?!? I love everything about his from his sweetness to his savage sarcasm even when I thought he was gone and was now "evil stiles" he was still my favorite because... How can you hate those big brown eyes?

The best character of ever show I have seen
I don't know he just so smart and funny helps when he need to
The best bad guy is someone aith his body
He just over all so so good charchter

2 Scott Mccall

Scott has amazing character and pure soul. He would probably risk his life for a little bunny. His relationships with everyone is amazing and the way he helped Liam grow and become a werewolf while trying to keep himself under control is so cool and cute.

He's such a chill guy, really inspiring - he studies, he works out, he's into sports, he's a great friend, he loves gaming, he loves his mom, he loves domestic stuff, he loves his girlfriends. He's an overall good boy. :)

I wish Scott were ranked #2 instead of Derek... I think he is much better than Derek in that he never thinks of himself, only his friends and family. He is the best good-guy on T.V. right now, and the best part is that the actor who plays him in real life- Tyler Posey- is also the nicest guy you've ever met. So perfect! Such a sweet person.

Scott is just utterly adorkable. Love this guy.
He's just a total sweetheart.

"You can't save everyone."
Scott: "But we have to try."

He doesn't get enough credit in the Teen Wolf fandom. But he's loyal, caring and gives his all.

3 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.

First in season 1 he was creepy
And in season 3 he was so great the duo with stiles was so funny
He smart strong very kind and helpfull
Over all a great character

Derek is the bad boy with a heart of gold. He goes through the best evolution on the show - from not being able to trust anyone and being angry at the world (with very good reason) to realizing that people do care about him and he can really make a difference and help people. Derek is the guy that cares but doesn't want you to know that he does. He's so brave. Plus, he's hot!

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 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!

Lydia, in my personal opinion is the strongest character on the strong, not physically, but mentally and emotionally. She went from being a bitch that selected few liked, to a strong, caring, badass who plays a vital role in the pack. She always manages to pull herself back, even when she faces things that no person should have to face like; the loss of her best friend, almost being killed, twice might I add (by Peter and Jennifer Blake). Without her and her Banshee abilities, the pack would have been stumped on countless occasions. Not only is she brave and intelligent but she also says some of the best quotes from the show like "not all monsters so monstrous things" and my favourite quote from the show "what the hell is a stiles? " This is just my own personal opinion as to why I think Lydia should be further up this list.

5 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.

Omg this guy didn’t need to go away
He is one of my favorite characters of all time
He is funny helpfull kind
I hope so much one day he comes back my heath will explode if that happend

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.

Incredible character with such a memorable and heart breaking backstory, missed having him the last few seasons. Daniel is the perfect representation of this wonderful character.

6 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

Allison argent is the best damn character in the whole show she should be at least top #3 she is so underrated but she brings a story to the shoe which no one notices, and I have one very important statement to make, remember in the.the divine move. Ep24 S3b stiles was going to kill himself while the nogitsune and the oni were fighting the pack it's was all fake because it was the state between life and death Kira explained this in the earlier episodes, the state is called bardou and whatever happens there is all in your mind so what if Allison 'died' in Bardou what if her death was fake...

Omg this my second favorite girl of the show
She strong kind helpfull and some times funny
When she died I cried a little she was my first favorite character of the show

Allison is such an inspiration to me. Seriously every time I'm about to do something scary, I think of Allison. WWAD lol. She would kick ass that's what she would do.

7 Melissa Mccall

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

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

Such a caring mother, however, sometimes too loose

Such a good mom. Cares for everyone.

8 Malia Tate

Malia is a strong character who deserves better then she gets. She may not have been the smartest, but she was trustworthy and any chance she had to help someone she'd take it. She gets hated on for apparently 'ruining' stydia, yet before Stiles and Malia were a couple, Lydia wouldn't even consider being with him, especially in seasons 1 and 2. Malia has done nothing wrong and I'll always love the best badass female character of Teen Wolf!

She is the best female character HANDS DOWN! We all know it. She might not have been in the show from the start but that doesn't make us love her any less. She's funny, caring, loving, hot, strong and also very emotional which makes me love her even more. Her development in just 3 seasons has been INCREDIBLE and people tend to forget about it

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 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.

9 Sheriff Stilinski

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

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

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

Relatable and compassionate

10 Danny Māhealani

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...

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.

He should be a recurring character past season 3!

So sweet. Love his relationship with Ethan.

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.

She slays world she literally slated my existence so I would appreciate it if u put her higher

12 Chris Argent

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

Super funny and charismatic

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

Objectively speaking, the actor is the handsomest one of the entire series (especially s3 onwards). Stiles/void Stiles has this haunting beauty but Peter's just ruggedly handsome.

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.

14 Liam Dunbar

He’s so adorable and he try’s to do right by everything he does if it’s risking his life for the pack or just helping the pack anytime. He has a big heart and has some very funny lines.

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

15 Jordan Parrish

I love this character! Parrish is probably one of the best characters on the show, he is hot (both literally and metaphorically), stronger than all of the others and he's sweet and caring. He always put everyone else before him. And the most important thing..he's a HELLHOUND I mean come on! (Honestly the best thing is that the majority of the time he is shirtless or with just a pair of boxers on since he is crazy hot compared to any other Teen wolf character). He should also be way higher up.

The more involved Jordan got in the plot, I found myself squealing whenever he came on screen. His entire character arc was fascinating to me and I always wanted to see more of him. He's so dutiful and adorable, and he's such a seemingly ordinary individual, and yet there's so much going on with him that he doesn't quite understand. He also delivers quite a few hilarious lines.

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

I just loved his progression as a character. Also I'm pretty sure he likes Lydia.

16 Jackson Whittemore

I think out of all the characters Jackson is by far my favorite. A lot of people really dislike him which I do understand in some ways yet I honestly couldn't adore him enough. He has so much development its insane. He started off as a jerky jock type which instantly got ripped away from him by Scott. His girlfriend his sports and his popularity went. He wanted it back, we all would if we were in his position so he fought. He felt very threatened against Scott and Stiles as he just wants to fit in. Season two is when he develops the most and when my love for him grew. He just wanted to fit in, to have power, to be somebody. He had never meant to be evil and hurt Lydia that was never his intention. He tried to gain power and respect from everyone but it never really worked. Instead somebody else was controlling his body so he turned into an emotional freak which wasn't really him.
I also always felt really bad for Jackson as when everyone died nobody really cared even though he was ...more

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.

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...)

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.

17 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!

Best character development in the show by a mile

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.

Theo is the best ever! 😜

18 Bobby 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

I loved how he wound up Stiles and his sarcasm even surpasses mine.

19 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.

Her character is so underrated! She is awesome: beautiful, strong, caring, badass etc. I actually shipped her and Stiles at some point ;)) ( but stydia is the best)

Cora Hale cannot seriously be under Malia, are you serious!

Such a useless character.

20 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.

Underdeveloped character with great potential in dereks pack.

21 Dr. Deaton

The best character low key saved their asses too many times

I don't know he was just that silent but deadly person

He is so strange and supportive. Plus fearless.

Always cares for the characters we love

22 Erica Reyes

She deserved better. She never had a good life. Gerard and Allison tortured her and The Alpha Pack killed her.

Should of been more of her. Showed to little. Hate how she died

I miss her she and Isaac was a great duo
She was just great

She was very nice and she really cared about boys

23 Void Stiles

The best bad guy of the show
He is awesome he controlls a body of a character with out powers and make him over powerd and it's so good of the show that he make stiles a bad guy

The sexiest villain in the world.

My favorite villain

Sexy my fave villain

24 Ethan

He’s very caring and cares a lot about his brother and Jackson. I wish he and Aiden had more screen time or even a spin-off could be cool. Of their past or Ethan trying to bring his brother back.

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

This is my favourite character because he so dreamy!

Love his attitude and thought it was really cute when Jackson saved his life 😂😂

25 Mason

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