Best Invader Zim Characters

List of the best charecters in the show Invader Zim
The Top Ten
1 Zim Zim is the titular protagonist and anti-hero of the American animated series Invader Zim, created by Jhonen Vasquez for Nickelodeon.

Zim is A very interesting Character because unlike most he is an antihero. He plays both protagonist and antagonist. He does a lot of bad things but honestly he is not evil, he is just not sympathetic towards others but this might not be his fault, I don't think he understands giving a normal response to issues. He tries to do his best but when it comes down to it he is really just super childish and sometimes it is kind of adorable. He has a lot of quirks which I think only makes him better, the way he speaks and his odd behavior all add greatly to his Character. He may seem on edge but he actually shows a lot of restraint, just think about it, he rarely does things to specific people and prefers to not associate with anyone if unprovoked. But He is bullied at school, and acts as result. It actually brings a little bit of sympathy to an otherwise an unsympathetic Character. He is overall just goofy and while he is bad he is just like a misbehaving kid. Even his rivalry with dub just ...more

Although Gir has some great moments, he is far from being my favorite character. To me he is like Deadpool and Harley Quinn, just there for selling things by being random. Zim on the other hand, can be funny/random but it doesn't seem gimmicky. He is a very interesting mixture of clever and idiotic. Incompetent and bad-ass. And the reason behind his insanity is rather interesting. He can take a lot of damage, based on the episodes and has lots of destructive potential that is difficult to tap into. He is very tenacious, and I love it. And seriously, at least one of his plans would've worked at this point if it weren't for "luck" so that the show goes on. I find him adorable despite being a little jerk, just look at that face! He is quite sympathetic due to the life he was born into for being short and his bad luck, despite being evil.

I've always found Zim to be the most interesting in the series and also the funniest. Even though I also like Gir, I do think he can get quite annoying at times. I like that Zim is both a villain and also the protagonist, I think it's pretty cool how he isn't a "good guy hero" protag like every other show has, he is actually flawed and that's good. He is a good mixture between being smart and a (adorable and lovable) idiot not to mention his hilarious quirks and the way he speaks. His voice acting is great and really sells to make the alien stereotypes unique. Considering that he is treated poorly by pretty much everyone else, it makes sense that he would be pretty cruel himself even though he usually ignores the negativity, it does make him sympathetic even if he isn't sympathetic to others. I do think Zim is one of the more "considerate" of his species though which would make him more of an antihero. However, I honestly wouldn't mind at all if he actually succeeded in taking over ...more

Zim is such a loveable character. He's funny, idiotic, smart, and adorable all at the same time. He looks so cute and I can't get enough of it! >w< He's one of the few characters that's made me laugh continuously and I love him so much! He'll forever be my #1 favorite no matter what

2 Gir

GIR is, with little to no doubt, the most hilarious cartoon character of all time! His unpredictable actions & quotes bring some of the most unique & enjoyable comic relief ever to be relieved. For example:
"I'm gonna sing the Doom Song now! Doom doom doom-doom..."
"Hi, floor! Make me a sammich! "
"Your head smells like a puppy! "
"There's waffle in 'em! "
"It's got chicken leggs! "
"Yay! We're doomed! "
'enough said.

Gir is a funny robot, shown in many of Hot Topic clothing for being such a funny character. He has the perfect lines, making me laugh every time! Gir is my favorite no doubt about it.

Gir is really cute, even though he doesn't often know what he's doing. I was in love with him since the first episode, and then...The Doom Song. He's amazing, defiantly the best character.

He's adorable! I can't get over the part in the one when they are lost in the city when Zim says is upset that he left the GPS device at home and asks why and then Gir says "To make room for the cupcake! "

3 Gaz

I hate this character. I just want to slap her for being so evil and cruel. It's like she's demon possessed. I know it's supposed to be played for laughs but, in my opinion it's not funny.

She's like the most relatable character on the show. While Dib is stopping Zim from taking over the world, she rather play video games even though she knows that Zim is an alien.

Gaz is so underrated! She is lonely and is always being annoyed by Dib and Zim. She is a relatable character that wasn't shown that much. There is so much to learn about Gaz!

Gaz is kind of like me except the only differences are that I'm a boy, I'm not aggressive or angry as she is, and I'm not goth. Either way she's a great and relatable character.

4 Dib

Oh, Dib. How I love Dib. He is my favorite, and he will always be. (I'm sorry Zim, I know you're the main character and all, but Dib will rule my world. ) He is just TOO adorable. His scythe-shaped hair is so EPIC! He has OCD, and is OBSESSED with the paranormal.
But he's misunderstood, and labeled as "Crazy" and when he cried in "The Frycook What Came from All That Space" it just broke my squishy human heart.

Dib is the most sympathetic character for sure. I enjoyed the first season way more than the second one partly because before the conflict between Dib and Zim was pretty even, equal amounts of misery plaguing both sides. Dib actually scored some sweet victories and it wasn't predictable at all.

Dib is my favorite character. Dib reminds me of myself like how we are both obsessed with the paranormal. How we are always called crazy when we talk about it to. I have been trying to get my mom to believe in aliens but she thinks I am crazy. I'm all ways drawing pictures of him in my notebook.

Dib is very relatable. When you don't share the same interests as everyone else, they all think you're insane. He shows people that with your "weird" interest, you could even help save the world one day!

5 Professer Membrane

He's a smart role model

Professer Membrane is the Albert Einstein of the show, also Dib and Gaz's dad

6 The Almighty Tallest Purple

All the Purple tallest cares about is food, making him very funny.

He's more Ernie while the Almighty Tallest Red is more Bert.

I love how he is voiced by the same guy that voices Pleakly from Lilo & Stitch.

Hey, I like snacks!

7 The Almighty Tallest Red

The only sane Irken possibly, and frankly he's just... hot. He's the one who actually tries to fix problems that go on in the Massive, instead of running around in circles.
First cartoon crush ever O_O
Kudos to everyone who loves Tallest Red! Because I do too. Brofist. :D

He reminds me of Conan O' Brien because their voices sound so similar.

He's more Bert while the Almighty Tallest Purple is more Ernie.

He is the one of the pair that actually gets stuff done and still has comedic value

8 Tak

Tak is a tragic character that has had her chance for a good life taken away from her. There is an extra layer of depth to her that makes you feel sorry for her, despite the fact that she is an antagonist. She is like Prince Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender in that sense. On top of that, her mannerisms are a ton of fun to watch, her poem is pure brilliance, her voice is amazing, her plan is very diabolical, and her laugh is deliciously maniacal, making her not only my favorite character in the show, but also helped to create my favorite episode of the show.

Tak is awesome! She is better written than a lot of the characters, and one thing I like is that she can kick Zim's BUTT if she wanted to! (The only reason she failed is because Dib, GIR and Gaz saved him.)

Tak wants to be a invader, but Zim ruined her chances. Tak can make you feel bad for her even though she's Irken

9 Ms. Bitters

Despite how Ms. Bitters has a very mean and grumpy personality combined with a sadistic sense of humour who else but her could bring comedy and darkness in the show. This is what makes her memorable.

Who else needs to have a teacher with a mean, grumpy, and funny personality like Ms. Bitters she's awesome!

You, your being transferred to the underground classroom, (AAHH! ) and you I'm just tired of you.

Prepare to be doomed.

10 Keef

Keef was such a nice character, he befriended ZIM and still kept his friendship. Yeah he's a bit annoyin to ZIM but kinda cute.

The Contenders
11 Minimoose

Okay, Minimose is only in one episode. But he's so cute! He's also in the unfinished episodes, and destroyed Zim's base. A cute super weapon. That HAS to be funny.

12 Bloaty
13 Zim's Computer
14 Old Kid

Old Kid only appeared with a line once, but it's so funny you can only hope this show comes back with more lines from old kid!

15 Invader Spleen
16 Piggy
17 Skoodge

Skoodge rocks. He was the first invader to conquer his assigned planet, the Tallest failed to kill him off, and he's just plain adorable.

Down on his luck character who never gives up and is actually nice. He's an Irken, but he's actually a sweetheart. Bless his little Irken heart.

He needs to be put into the comics! Please!

Stood he is awesome

18 Melvin

Melvin is a human boy who is seen in two episodes, "best friends" and "the wettening". In best friends he is seen with a few other charecters and the group of kids are called " the rejects" by another popular girl named Jessica. In the wettening, he is the boy who eats paste which might remind you of episodes from other cartoons like, the powerpuff girls, and many other cartoons.

Melvin may not have many lines, but I like him because he wants to be a astronot, like me.

19 Mimi
20 Vort Prisoner 777

Vort prisoner 777 may be shown very little in the show, but he is responsible for a lot of the events. He supplies Zim with technoligy

21 Invader Tin

Allthough most don't know Invader Tin, she is a charecter, she is in the first episode, though she doesn't have a speaking part..

22 Jessica

Jessica is a human popular girl seen in three different episodes, one known most is best friends where she is seen talking badly of Zim, Dib, and the rejects, to the rest of her popular friends.

23 Roboparents

The two robo parents are Zim's cover parents, but Zim has no real parents. The Robo parents are really funny yet weird.

That's not entirely true, in one episode it showed Zim's parent(the robot claw).

24 The Moose
25 Enderman
