Best Boy Meets World Characters

A list of the people's favourite characters from 90s sitcom, Boy Meets World.
The Top Ten
1 Eric Matthews

All-time favourite character on this show, he's too funny, and Will Friedle is an amazing actor! My favourite mishap of his (currently) is when he finds a penny and becomes totally obsessed with it and has all the luck in the world. Then he gives it to Cory to help with his fight with Topanga. It starts to storm, and poor Eric gets struck by lightning twice (on the same spot!) indoors while sitting on the rec centre couch. And when he said "Well, at least I didn't get wet," then the janitor comes and pours a bucket of water on his head. Eric Matthews is the best Boy Meets World character ever!

2 Shawn Hunter

I think Shawn shows a lot of good examples of what other kids go through in life. I feel sorry for him whenever he gets down about his family. Other than being able to show everyone that life isn't all rainbows and romantic happiness to his friends, he has good morals and is very funny.

He feels like people have given up on him but is able to continue and go on in life, because people who have been through a lot sometimes start to question about future pathways and sometimes give up on life. He is very talented at poetry and a good friend to Cory. Plus, he has good hair.

"Marry me! I live in a trailer park and have no education but my hair does this (swishes hair)" - One of the funniest lines from him.

3 George Feeny
4 Cory Matthews

Cory Matthews is the protagonist. We followed him through the worst of times and the best of times. Many people are probably judging on singular attributes of characters: Eric is the funniest. George Feeny is the wisest. Shawn Hunter is the most attractive. But Cory was often funny. He often had moments of wisdom. And I will simply say that attractiveness should not really dictate one's favorite character (this is just my opinion, I know).

Along with these characteristics, Cory never stopped believing in love. Also, in his heart, he wanted to do what he thought was right. But along with these great qualities, he also had his struggles. Should he be good, or edgy and dangerous? Should he be a leader or a follower? Should he listen to his parents or ignore them?

And let's not forget his patience with the sexual aspect of his relationship with Topanga. He wanted to give in multiple times, but he managed to wait until their marriage. I think we got so used to Cory as our protagonist, that we forgot how layered and interesting he was.

5 Topanga Lawrence Topanga Lawrence Matthews is a fictional character from the television series Boy Meets World and the spin-off series, Girl Meets World. She has been portrayed by Danielle Fishel throughout both series' run and has been a main character for most of the series.

I think Topanga is smart and pretty. Okay, so during the first couple of seasons, she was a little, okay, a lot weird, but I still love her because of her internal traits. She cares for people like Cory and Shawn. She is so much fun to be around. I love Topanga Lawrence Matthews.

6 Jack Hunter
7 Johnathan Turner

An amazing human being. A wonderful teacher and I was always hoping he would be Shawn's father. It always seemed like that is what he wanted. My all-time favourite character on BMW.

8 Morgan Matthews

Lily Nicksay was crazy funny. A great actress (even if she was VERY young).

9 Alan Matthews

Best dad. And now that I'm 30, I'll say it: handsome.

10 Stuart Minkus
The Contenders
11 Angela Moore

Angela and Cory's relationship was one of the more understated gems of the show. They had great chemistry. Angela was the perfect combination of fun and pragmatism, and she would eventually contribute to one of Shawn's biggest emotional breakthroughs. Love her.
