Top 10 Best Characters from The 100

The Top Ten
1 Bellamy Blake

He was the last person I wanted to live at the beginning. I hated him. But by season 2, "whatever the hell we want" seemed to be about saving his friends and family, not just avoiding the cops. I absolutely despised how right he has been throughout a lot of the series. He knew they would still be treated like criminals when the Ark came down. He was great at getting into Mount Weather, even without Lincoln. I love how he and Clarke end up together at the end of every season. I feel like in their own ways, they went through a lot of the same pain.

2 John Murphy

Murphy's character development is amazing. From episode one, he is easily the most disliked character, but by the end of season 2, we already see the amount of growth he has undergone and will continue to experience. He manages to become a fan favorite after allowing himself to feel for others rather than just looking out for himself. And honestly, who could blame him for putting himself #1 anyway? He wasn't a leader like Bellamy and Clarke. He didn't feel an obligation to put others before himself before he got to know them and realized how much he cared for them.

Unlike other characters, Murphy is still continuing to grow all these seasons later, and I'm excited to see where it takes him.

3 Octavia Blake

The reason I adore Octavia Blake is that she is her own person and won't make herself be someone she isn't. She was never a part of Skaikru or Trikru. She spent time trying to find herself and discovered she could be whoever she wanted to be. She is a warrior and a survivor, and I know that whatever they discover on this new planet, she will be able to face it.

And yes, she became Bloodreina, who a lot of people didn't like, but there is a reason why. She became who she needed to be, and that was Bloodreina.

I am glad the writers didn't kill her off in season 5 because I think she is the most capable of all characters to turn her story around and do what Monty asked of them. She has the potential to be the good guy (or her warrior equivalent), and I hope that she will be.

4 Raven Reyes

Raven is the most badass character on this show. No one can change my opinion on that. She is strong-willed, determined, and a genius, of course. If it weren't for Raven Reyes, there is absolutely no way the rest would've survived this long. She is constantly the character averting a new disaster or coming up with a creative solution to save everyone's lives.

I also love her storyline with her leg. We don't get to see struggles like that in shows like this ever. Seeing all the emotions she goes through and the obstacles she faces during that time is heartbreaking and inspiring. More of her scenes bring tears to my eyes than all other characters combined. I think many people can relate to the idea of feeling in denial and lost when they can no longer do what they used to and having to find whole new ways to continue doing the work that is important to them.

Raven made it through all of that, losing Finn, and so much more, and has come out the other end stronger. She deserves that #1 spot.

5 Clarke Griffin

She has been through a lot and she is my favorite character. The reason she is my favorite character is that she tries to save everyone on the drop ship. When Mount Weather came in on season 2, she tried to save everyone but had a difficult choice to make. After Lexa's betrayal, then in season 3, Lexa is trying to make Clarke's people her people. They fall in love right after Lexa is killed by a bullet and dies. Then Clarke is left heartbroken and she saves humanity again after that.

But after Lexa's death, Clarke has a heavy burden on her. Then she meets Madi and they become like mother and daughter. She raises her for about 6 years. Clarke is a good person who made hard choices. And as it is said in the show, she makes these decisions so her people don't have to.

6 Monty Green

Monty was an extremely great character. He is kind of cute, and I loved his relationship with Jasper. He is intelligent and compassionate when it comes to friends and family.

I am really pissed at the writers. They shouldn't have killed his character off.

By far the wisest, sweetest, most reasonable character to come from this show. He deserved the world, and I'm glad the writers gave him a "happy" ending with the woman he loved. It's harder to choose to not fight than it is to fight. He was the strongest character.

7 Marcus Kane

Kane started off as a total jerk, but after his mother died and the Ark went down, his character began to improve. Since then, he's always strived for peace and usually succeeds. At first, he would do anything to be the leader, and now he would die for his followers. I'm not a huge fan of Abby, but Kabby makes me very happy, so these two better stay on the show at least for another season.

During season five, he made some questionable choices, so I agree that he should not be number one. But every character on this show has made a choice that the fandom hates. Let's be honest, we all hated Bellamy when Pike was around. Yeah, so Kane definitely deserves to be in the top ten.

8 Lexa

Wish Lexa stuck around longer. It would have been interesting to see her without Alie 2.0 in her head. Still, one of the best characters in this show.

Lexa is my number 1! She is the strongest and smartest character (she and Clarke, by the way) in the series. It's just so devastating that she had to leave the show. But anyway, her character empowers and inspires women. She inspires me. She's different. She's calm. She's compassionate, strong, smart, independent. I love her! It isn't just about her sexuality, but it's about everything! She may be ruthless, but she is smart. It's just so sad that she had to leave. But nonetheless, she left a beautiful mark on everyone that continuously inspires.

9 Lincoln

He wasn't in the show for long enough. It was so happy for me when he helped Octavia and also helped the other people. I think it was season two, episode 15, when he was helping Hendra. Not sure if I spelled that correctly.

I don't think there's anyone who dislikes Lincoln. His morals are incredible, and he is so sweet. Linctavia is one of my favorite couples, and I cried like a baby during his death. I hate Pike! Lincoln did everything to protect everyone. Not just my people, but all people.

He is the best character in The 100, brave, selfless, always trying to do the right thing, and looking for the best for everyone. He definitely shouldn't have died. Without him, The 100 would not have survived the first season.

10 Jasper Jordan

Loved him in season 1 and especially in season 2. Didn't like him in the next seasons, but I tried to understand what he went through. In season 4, I started to love him again, and he really deserved better. I wish people would try to understand him. I know he was annoying, but he was such a pure soul (he was also the youngest of them all) who experienced too many bad things.

I liked him before he went psycho from Maya's death. He was funny and sweet. Even in season four, I kind of agree with him, because while everyone around him is rushing to prepare for Praimfaya and not enjoying what will be a lot of them's last days alive, he's enjoying the beauty of life. I hate that it takes him being broken and portrayed as crazy to show that perspective.

The Contenders
11 Roan

Roan was such a badass, interesting guy. Would have loved seeing him in the bunker. Don't think he would have made it there, though.

A great character for the season he was in. Would have loved to see more from him, but his death made sense. No way could he have lived in the bunker.

Roan was a badass. I wish he would've made it to season 5. Another moronic mistake by the writers for killing off his character.

12 Echo

I love how you learn about her character the more the show goes on. It's really interesting and intriguing. She is definitely the most badass character on the show. She was broken from a young age, and on the Ark, she learns to be caring and loving. I wish she learned to be more independent, but I just love how they developed her throughout the show.

Echo is probably one of the only characters in The 100 that I love, other than Indra!

Echo is a good character who was raised wrong and made bad choices. But she is still a good character.

13 Thelonious Jaha

I'm not sure why everyone is hating on Jaha. He was the most wise and caring character. People may say he was bad because he found the City of Light, but the truth is, he saved everyone after he found it. It released and revealed information on ALIE, and without him finding the City of Light, they wouldn't have known about Praimfya. So, all the characters would have died except the remaining Nightbloods.

I love Jaha. I don't know why everyone hates on him. If he never found the City of Light, Clarke never would have found out about Praimfaya, and everyone would have died. Jaha was the one who found the bunker. He always did what he thought was best for his people. He's my favourite character in the whole show.

14 Emori

I literally love Emori so much. First of all, you can't tell me I'm wrong, but she and John literally carried season 4. Memori is my favorite couple on the show. I cried so hard when I thought she died in season 7. I also love her friendship with Raven. I know she did some bad things at the beginning, but like every other character, she developed, and compared to some people, she never did anything that bad.

I love it when in season 7 she and Murphy are protecting everyone else in the reactor. It really shows you how much she has grown as a person. I also feel like her development has a lot to do with the six years in space. She finally started to feel like her life actually mattered and she was worth something. Also, she finally felt like she had a home and family.

15 Indra

Love this woman. She's the mother figure for another fierce woman on the show, Octavia. And they're both fricking awesome, and no one can tell me otherwise. I am so passionate about the bond Indra and Octavia have. Love you, Indra!

My favorite part from her is in season 7, where she finally steps up and becomes a leader herself. To be fair, she always was but just never showed it.

She is so solid. It's refreshing to have a character like that in a show like this!

16 Charmaine Diyoza

Every scene Diyoza was in was just so much fun. Yes, I know she was a serial killer, but the evolution of her character was well done.

The character growth is amazing.

17 Madi Griffin

I love Madi. She is literally so sweet, and I love her mother-daughter relationship with Clarke. Her death was the saddest on the show for me. I physically couldn't handle it. I was really upset when she turned herself in. I know she was trying to do what was right, but I feel like it made Clarke killing Bellamy all for nothing. It also ended up leading to her death. I think that Madi was definitely one of the greatest additions to the show.

She is the person Clarke holds closest. She is so much like Lexa. They are both fearless, determined, and they both hold Clarke close. And since Lexa died, Clarke feels guilty for her death. So, she does everything in her power to save, help, and keep Madi from death. Madi helps Clarke through emotional times, even if she doesn't know it. She really has a lot of influence on the importance of Clarke's new self.

18 Charlotte

My 12-year-old sister, who looks similar to Charlotte, and I were watching this show. The episode before Charlotte died, I told my sister she would be Charlotte. It was honestly the funniest coincidence ever. Still, I hated her death. Also, when she kills Wells, I jumped. It was out of nowhere.

19 Finn Collins

His character started off a bit one-dimensional and like a plot device, but later on, he became a major character. His death was the saddest on the show, and I believe the show was sitting on a gold mine with a character like Finn, but instead, they killed him off for the massacre. Lexa orders his death even though she was probably behind the first few attacks that started the war in the first place. I don't like the show after his death because there is no such thing as justice in this show, and Finn will always have his fans.

20 Paxton McCreary
21 Luna

Had you not gone loco at the end, you'd be in space with your astronaut girlfriend. I really liked you. Why does Jason feel the need to just kill off any characters the fandom might really like? What's up with that, dude?

She was very interesting and tough. She was probably one of the strongest characters on the whole show. I don't understand how she's only twenty-fourth.

22 Charles Pike

I am probably the only one who likes him, but I think he deserved redemption in the end.

23 Harper McIntyre

It's so interesting how a minor character was given a bigger part in season 3. She should definitely be in the top ten, instead of Jasper.

Chelsey Reist has really brought such a minor character to life. I hope she gets a bigger role in season 5 and beyond.

Monty and she were the best couple by a mile.

24 Wells Jaha

He died way too soon. He and Clarke were like best friends, and it kind of breaks my heart, knowing that he died.

25 Abigail Griffin

I don't get why she gets so much hate. She's literally the cutest, and Paige did such an amazing job playing Abby. She deserves top 5!

She saved so many people. She deserves better.

I've liked Abby from the very beginning. A very complex character, in my opinion. And Paige Turco portrayed her so greatly.
