Top 10 Best Glee Characters
Going from a background character to a fan favorite speaks to the depth her character was given throughout the 6 seasons. Santana highlighted the intricacies of the human condition and proved that the most flawed of characters still have heart. Naya's portrayal of Santana could not have been done by anyone else. She EASILY has the best voice and her one-liners made the show. Santana and Brittany provided 90% of the comedic relief in Glee and did so flawlessly. Put the two pretty cheerleaders together changed the opinions of so many people all over the world and I'll forever stand by that.
Santana's not only the best character on Glee, but definitely one of the best on television period! She is a complex character who is frighteningly easy to relate to! Not only does Santana amuse with wonderful comedic barbs, but she stirs great compassion as she struggles to handle her challenges. Multi-layered, she is simultaneously fierce and vulnerable. Add Naya Rivera's (Santana) amazing vocals, dance, and beauty to make her easily the "true star" of Glee. I hope to see more of her in the future as the show winds down... Maybe a spin-off? Add in an album or two... I needs my Santana tunes!
Something about Kurt that I've always admired is his bravery and pride. He isn't afraid to be himself, and that's spoken to me, and a lot of people I know. His determination to not let the world get to him is inspiring and beautiful. He's always been one of the strongest characters on the show, persevering despite the horrendous bullying and showing that he is himself, he is always going to be himself, and that no one can tell him what he can or cannot do or become. He's been a symbol throughout the show of how being true to yourself is the best way to be, because lies are just that: a lie. And nothing is worth giving up the best person you could ever become just because someone tells you that you shouldn't, can't, or won't.
Kurt gives a certain realism to Glee. He holds himself higher than other because he knows he has more potential than other people give him credit for. He has sass and style, and he knows where he stands. He doesn't need to bring other people down, he puts them where they should really be. He, like Kurt said, is not a box. There are more than 6 sides to his personality. Although he has a main personality trait, you can often see many other sides to him.
He is the character who has probably gone through the most hardships (although most/all of the Glee kids went though troubles, it was extremely directed on him during Season 1 and 2), but still ended up in a pretty good place.
Plus, let's be real: Klaine is endgame.
He is such a nice person and he has an incredible gift. One of the best male voices we have on Glee. He is so cute and he loves helping others. And come on, who doesn't love Blaine? He is polite, kind and he has an interesting personality. Escpecially in the beggining of season 2, he was so mysterious and charming. Plus, he makes the perfect match with Kurt. I love Blaine even more every time he encourages Kurt when he has his doubts about something, when they laugh and spend time together and when they kiss. Blaine is like an angel for Kurt. He is the person that made his life more beautiful. So, Blaine is AWESOME!
Although the later seasons of Glee, were written, by writers who didn't understand the show; or the way it was originally intended and who did their damndest, to ruin ALL of the Glee characters; by turning them into one note, caricatures of themselves. I will always see Blaine Anderson, the way that the three creators of the show, wrote him and intended him to be. The easy going, sweet, confident, loving, romantic, lead singer of The Warblers; who asked Kurt to dance, when Karofsky left him alone, on the dance floor.
Rachel Barbra Berry is an ICON! Yes she could be obnoxious, arrogant and selfish. Yes she did some awful things. But so did almost every single character on this show. Glee is a comedy (even though it really should've been more of a drama) and the writers often made her do outlandish, crazy things just to cause drama and move the plot along. Her character development was constantly thrown into the trashcan, but we all know continuity was practically non-existent on this show. So, in real life, would I be friends with her? Probably not. But she was a damn entertaining character to watch, one I always ended up rooting for. Her drive and dedication was inspiring, and she gave us so many amazing songs and iconic lines. I pretty much only watched the last season for her. And in the end, Rachel Berry really was the face of Glee! Who knows how long the show would've lasted without her.
As the ultimate Gleek, I strongly believe that Glee was amazing with Cory Monteith in it. Even though he died, we could all feel him through the rest of the series. The auditorium was named after him! Without him, the people who joined Glee wouldn't have. Even though Quinn joined Glee Club with a motive, it was because of Finn and he made the boys on his team do the most embarrassing dance in public. He was a leader and an inspiration. Not only were the actors/actresses on Glee affected by his death but fans and Gleeks were affected too. I felt so sorry for Lea because Cory really touched her. Finn, you deserve number 1 on this list. Not 7!
To me, best character on glee. He has a dorky sense on humor, he has the looks, he's very driven and a real leader and inspiration to everyone in glee club. His voice and dorky dancing just lures you in and makes you LOVE. He is the one who brought the team together. He was the one who inspired and motivated everyone when they thought the glee club was doomed due to will leaving. He had his bad moments, like everyone does, but the way he loved Kurt in the wedding was just perfect. He worked his butt off to make the wedding as perfect as possible and would do anything for Kurt to forgive him, I like the way Finn is determined. Not to mention he's a sucker for love, and he always loved Rachel and made her feel the way no one could make her feel. He gave Rachel more confidence in herself. He would do anything for her, no matter how much he gets hurt. But also the fact that he's very sensitive and isn't afraid to show when he's weak is another quality I admire in this man. This is glee's best character. Fly high, Hudson. Us gleeks will ALWAYS love and admire you.
Brittany is just so gorgeous and sweet. The one problem was that Ryan Murphy made her my insulting half the time and nice half the time. When Santana says "You look like one of the bait girls on catch a predator!" Brittany responds with "Yeah. And I'm more talented than you." But that is literally the same person who helped Becky believe in herself and didn't blame the Rachel and Finn for ruining Nationals because they were a family. Make up your mind Ryan Murphy! Is she a mean girl, a dumb blond, or a SUPER talented friendly dancer we all want her to be
In my opinion, Brittany is one of the best characters on GLEE. She's so funny, cute and sweet and she is caring and loving. She can dance very well and she has an amazing voice. Heather Morris is one of my favorite actresses all times, I think she did an amazing job by acting Brittany and I'm just happy to see her acting talent developing in the show. Brittany is a special person and she makes people happy, and that's what is so unique about that character.
QUINN FABRAY is an ICON---her different levels of singing voice, her amazing dancing skills and her story line! For me, Quinn had the best character development in the show. I love the songs she performed, although it wasn't that much, but all her songs in the show suits her voice and her character. I also love how classy and poised she dances, and I love how she delivers her lines, her facial expressions and her acting skills, all in all. Thankfully, it was Dianna Agron,who portrayed her. She nailed it. She made Quinn unforgettable and an icon. I hope she will someday win an award for being a great actress. She deserves it.
There's something about Dianna Agron's portrayal of Quinn that pulls in the viewer and makes you lover her despite her many flaws. Agron paints an honest, sincere portrait of a girl who experiences the life-altering realities that many high school girls dread. And she carefully transitions the character from a mean, superficial sophomore to a softened, resolved senior.
But ultimately, the true gravity of Quinn is her relatable nature. Her character isn't exaggerated or sensationalized. Her character is, simply put, real.
She is the only character in Glee who didn't once disappoint me. Even at times she failed or lost, she was elegant and never really lost her head; never resorted to childish drama. And though she was a compulsive liar and a psychopath she was a mind genius, a vicious leader and most of all - a winner, a fighter. When she strikes she's tall and fiery and doesn't let petty emotions get in her way, she's ruthless.
But in the end she was actually a good person; - she reveled in her rage but not because she had "temper issues", but because she converted her anger and controlled it, bent it into her will.
Sue was honest and brutal, but most of all, she was deeply caring. She had a sister who had Down syndrome. Sue was real when she spoke, but kind at what she meant.
Who doesn't like Sue sylvester, I mean, she is hilarious. My personal favourite line "Get the hell out of my office". Jane Lynch, the actress who plays Sue is ultimately one of the best in the biz. She is constantly reminding everyone of her youth, and giving us a laugh every now and then
Although Mercedes had some of the worst storylines in glee like the tot thing... (and Rachel getting all the solos and not Marcedes like Huh?!) Mercedes is so kind, so helpful and always has everybody's back no matter what! And Mercedes is the best singer in glee club (in my opinion) and she is a performer and a star not only a good singer or a good dancer (well she isn't a good dancer but still) she is an ICON!
She is such an inspiring person and she doesn't mind sharing the spotlight with anybody. Even though she is underrated on Glee (a lot! ) she admits that Rachel is one of the best singers she has ever heard. That means she really appreciate other people. And she is a person you can relate to, awesome voice, personality, unique vocal range... She is everything I wanna be.
Mercedes is a diva but she's better than Rachel because even though she wants to be a big star, she's still a good friend and she makes people smile. Rachel can be a good friend too but being in the spotlight is her priority.
Sam is my all time favorite glee character. I love glee and I love most characters but Sam is the sweetest, kindest most love able glee character. He's not the best singer or dancer but he's a great guy. He may not be the main character but there is nothing bad I could say about him, and I really love Samcedes! Sam Evans is the best!
He was mostly unproblematic, and looked out for his friends however he could. Sam pretty much saved Blaine when he got really down (you know why, and what season). His impressions were cute and dorky- HE was cute and dorky.
Sam is a silly and handsome young man! Most of the time that I laughed while watching Glee was because of Sam. He is so cool! And I love his friendship with Blaine!
In season one, Puck seems like a stereotypical high school jock but later on it's revealed that he has much more to him than that. In the glee club, Will always seems to not know how to deal with Puck and he is often underestimated by the other glee clubbers. It seems to me a bit unfair that through Mckinley everyone almost always had someone to help them with their problems (Finn had Mr Schue, Sam had Finn and Rachel, Quinn had Mercedes and in the third season she had puck) while many of his problems weren't seen to or just ignored.
Noah is my fave character by far at the beginning he seemed like a real jerk but later he reveals he's a lot more then that! I think him singing is super sexy though! And when he sang keep holding on for Quinn in season 6 actually made me tear up a bit after I watched that puck became boyfriend goals and when he beat up Quinn's boyfriend for Quinn! He's such a cutie! And him with Beth was absolutely perfect! He should be number 1
Uhhh. This is hard for me. Like I think Marley is a sweet girl and all, but she's also kind if annoying. I disliked season 4 and 5 BECAUSE of the new characters. I could never warm up to them, and as I said before in another comment they are just trying to play the same roles if Finn, Rachel, Quinn, and puck, with these cheap new knockoffs. They don't have any chemistry I find, and they always go on about how glee is their life and how they are really going to miss It, when in reality it would just kinda effect the old characters. They were there through it all, and you can even tell that Mr. Shue loved the old characters more. He cried when he thought the glee club would end, when they graduated.. Ext... But I thjnk that Marley is trying to be Rachel. Ryder is the new Finn, jake is the new pick, and kitty is the new Quinn. They can't really live up to their expectations I find, and in really disappointed in the show, and how they just kinda kept the same story line for the new characters. Marley (Rachel)- has insecurities, best singer, the "loser", Ryder (Finn)- the good guy who loves Marley no matter what, but is also self conscious Kitty (Quinn)- head cheerleader, popular, mean and obnoxious but then losses up Jake (Puck)- bad ass who hooks up with every girl, Jewish, pucks step brother... See what I mean? These new characters are wannabes that just aren't fitting the job
I love artie he's sweet, caring, and has actual problems teenagers face, he is always polite when people are performing, he is an awesome singer and I think he deserves a relationship with Kitty or Quinn. He is smart, too. I love artie and he deserves more solos and screen time.
Artie is a very kind man. He endures not only the average teenage problems, but also faces the problem of disability with a smile. He is always polite and is a fantastic singer. I believe he is the best character, but then again I'm only on season one.
I love him Artie really needed more screen time. He is super inspirational and a geuly funny character and I don't get why people didn't like him. Kevin is such an amazing singer and deserved more solos.
Sadly, he's so underestimated by many people. Let's not forget that Will is the reason Glee started again and he's kind of the soul of the club. Also he is the hottest teacher like ever. And not only that of course, he's the dream come true teacher to be honest. If we all were taught by such people there would be no things like violence and war and misunderstanding in the world. So, yea, vote for him, Cheers
He was an amazing teacher and role model for a lot of the Glee kids. He pretty much brought them together and proved that no matter how different they are, there is always something that unites them.
I think that I agree with what everyone said to him in the New Directions episode (Season 5).
Wait...but he's mean. Not always, but remember when everything became about winning? Don't you remember how he treated Mercedes. I get it that we're all missing Glee right now and it's easiest to think of him since was their leader but seriously, he was awful.
Way to go Emma you showed anything is possible when you defeated your illness once and for all when all the odds were against you no one should ever had doubted you and you show that dreams can come true. Sure you had your ups and downs but so does everyone else so I say three cheers for Mrs. Pillsbury!
She's nice and she has a really good story line. Sometimes I think she deserves better than Will, but then they're so nice together.
Such an underestimated character. Her morals were almost perfect through the whole show. Caring and loving with Will, the kids and everyone, even Sue
Tina has an amazing voice, and she had so much character development. She is sometimes played off as a joke, but she so confident in herself by the end and I can relate to her, as she is always kind of in the background, but she should have had more focus because SHE. IS. AMAZING.
Tina is one of the characters with the most development. She started as the awkward goth girl with the shutter and now she's a true diva, that shines on stage, she even won prom queen and she showed everybody in Glee that she has the charisma and the drive to be on top.
Tina's great. I can relate to her, I mean, she's not the biggest, flashiest character, she's not a Kurt or a Rachel, she's more of an average high school girl with her clothes style changing and being a team player for the first couple of seasons. I'll say it again, Tina's great.
Mike was that shy guy who would barely speak and seeing him transition from that into being a student at Joffery and dancing at every chance he gets is so inspirational to people like Mike- dancers, people who are labelled as nothing more than a Brainiac, and shy or quiet people who are neglected. Plus, he's really sweet!
Mike is one of the original Glee clubbers and in my opinion, one of the most interesting characters. He barely had a storyline and when he did, it was always related to Tina, but he just brought that special something in the show. He is one of those people I just can't imagine Glee without them.
Mike was that guy who didn't get much attention, but when he did, the whole episode lit up and the plot became real. I always wanted to watch episodes with him in it because his chill-attitude combined with his talent was the ultimate package.
Burt is just a good person who I love, he isn't only one of the most humble and kind characters in glee he has such good character development! Although I don't think he's the best character he definitely gets to stand on the podium!
I wish he was my dad, he was so great and loving to Kurt, and wasn't afraid to be stern. He was also great at being welcoming to Finn, and standing up for his son Kurt, after being homophobic himself. And we all cried during the "Grilled Cheesus" episode
Best transition. He learned how to communicate. He opened up completely, became the most supportive loving father. Perfect depiction of what a dad should be.
Hollys just a boss and she is the coach that new directions deserves (I mean I do hate will) I really like holly the end of the story.
Holly has all these young and fresh ideas that made glee more interesting... not that it is not the most interesting show ever
Maybe he isn't the nicest guy in the show but he proved to be one of the best villains. He performed well, especially in 'Smooth Criminal'. I wish he would have gotten more screen time, especially with Blaine.
Yeah he can be kind of a douche, but he is really funny, and such a great villain with a really great smile, voice, and awesome one liners. He is like a mix between Santana, Sue, and Terri.
Best villain, his rivalry with Santana and competition with Kurt were amazing to watch. Not the nicest guy in the least, but by far one of the most interesting.
She seems so nice, and the story behind her is so sad, and she is also a very buce person.
She was always so kind
People compare her to Quinn a lot but she's her own person. Quinn was unclear about her motives and you could never guess what she would do next. Kitty is more immature, she's more of a high school girl that gets jealous and she's mean just because that's what people expect from her. The only thing they have in common is that they were both cheerleaders and that they were blonde.
Yea I have to agree with some of you. I'm really annoyed and I disliked season 4, and 5 because of all the good characters were gone! I couldn't warm up to the new actors, and as much as they could try to replace Quinn with kitty, Rachel with Marley, and Ryder with Finn, they could never replace them. There was something special that happened on glee with the original cast, that rarely happens in T.V. shows. But after they left, replaced them and got cheap knockoffs, I was actually disappointed in the show.
I liked him a lot in season four, but the writers kind of screwed up his character in season five. I hated how he treated Marley and then he expected her to forgive him like nothing happened.
He has a pretty good voice, and has been the best male dancer in Glee Club besides Mike Chang. He and Marley also had really great story lines.
The new puck? I don't think so. He tries to be but can't even come close
Even though I voted for Kurt (because Kurt is- well. Kurt. ) I love Lauren and I'm so sad to see that she's quite hated. I find her awesome, so badass and funny, it's like a breath of fresh air and the fact that, like some haters said, they don't try to make her attractive and she still gets the "hottie" is just so amazing. The badasses meet and I'm so sad Puck ended with Quinn and Lauren left so soon, I just really loved her.
Lauren was really inspiring when she ran for prom queen she shows you don't have to be super model skinny to be cool... well her and Megan trainer
I really love her she stands up for what she wants and is the only girl puck had to fight for!
He's very sweet and he has an amazing voice. I wanted him to sing more because Innocent Man and Your Song were just awesome.
Ryder was a great singer and a total sweetheart! I'm sad that we didn't see very much of him!
So hot, he sings well and he is a sweet guy! !
