Top 10 Best Cobra Kai Characters

The Top Ten
1 Johnny Lawrence

I prefer him over Daniel, but there are a few things I don't about him in the show. 1) He dislikes many of the girls and women in the show. He gets mad at Yasmine, Moon, and Sam just because they accidentally run over his car, he at first doesn't let Aisha join Cobra Kai just because she's a girl, gets mad when Piper and her friends join Cobra Kai(not a very big deal since they're a few of the nice people in Cobra Kai), and rejects Devon at first because she was a "nerd" and gets mad when she joins Cobra Kai(again, not a big deal). Girl hater! 2) He hates his own kid until the season 4 finale and tries to replace him with another kid, Miguel. 3) He acts really, really dumb throughout the show. But he is very relatable.

The most badass dude ever!

Great character arc.

I love how Cobra Kai actually looks into Johnny's point of view rather than keeping everything around Daniel. It really adds much more to the story. - Bro

2 Miguel Diaz

My views of him
Early season 1: 9/10
Mid season 1: 8/10
Late season 1: 1/10
Early season 2: 3.5/10
Mid season 2: 7/10
Late season 2: 3/10
Early season 3: 5/10
Mid season 3: 6/10
Late season 3: 9.5/10
On the whole, he's OK, probably my eleventh favourite character, he shouldn't be on my votes but Ali Mills isn't on here

3 Daniel LaRusso

Balance is always my thing, whenever I'm in trouble, I just think about Daniel. To find balance, and my true power.

He is so peaceful, balance if kinda my thing!

This man can just balance life.. The hell!

Tech me Carne kick

4 Samantha LaRusso

She's nice for the most part and is stronger than Piper and Devon, but I felt sorry for Piper when she lost. I couldn't decide who to root for. I did like it when she won against Devon in season 5. She is also like a little bit of an older sister figure to Robby.

Sam is the QUEEN and the REAL all valley champion. She can be baddas, but also carrying and emotional. Her development from a girl, who wants to be popular to a karate girl, that deffends her real friends

"She does Karate in jeans, and she and Robby alone took out 5 cobra kai's!

5 Hawk (Eli)

He was a great character from the beginning. Had a bit of a rocky turn when he sided with Kreese, but he really redeemed himself later on, proving to be a great fighter and a great person.

I love Hawk, I mean look at him, he has the haircut, the confidence, and those muscles. You gotta give him a million of out ten!

His hair is so good.

6 Robby Keene

I love him very much! I had a crush on him and a little bit Kyler for a long time, but I love and have a crush on Billy Hargrove from stranger things.

Dang, that's the man that is super badass, I chose him because of his muscles and his super appropriate haircut for men.

Robby is one of my favorite characters, but I kind of feel bad for him in some ways.
*SPOILER WARNING HERE*
His father Johnny left him on day one (though, to be fair, Johnny regrets it and Robby won't give him another chance). I also hate how, when Sam and Robby were dating, Sam kissed Miguel (and while Miguel was with Tory, so some bad on his part too)... That must've hurt... - Bro

7 Demitri

Demitri is a cool guy! Very friendly. He's far from perfect though, considering he humiliated his best friend Eli in front of everybody

To be honest, Demitri is my absolute favorite character in this series. Not only is he a comedy relief, but he's also one of the most consistent protagonists (along with Miguel, but even he's done some bad things). I love his character as a whole. - Bro

I love his nerdy things, and when he hangs out with Robby and Sam its hilarious!

8 Tory

She is pretty cool, I like her spiky bracelet, I'd rather the "Cobra Queen" is one of the best and confident fighters.

I love Tory and her hardworking ways, I love her working for her mum and getting jobs so she can reflect the anger.

Even though she's supposed to be the antagonist, it's hard to see her as such. I tend to side with her over Sam.

She's angry and I love it.

9 Amanda LaRusso
10 John Kreese
The Contenders
11 Moon

I love Moon, (I love Kepple as well) and I love how she goes from bully to LBGTQ+ and bisexual! She's my favourite characters by far!

12 Aisha Robinson

She's okay, but I prefer the other girls in this show(Sam,Yasmine, Moon, Tory, Piper, Piper's friends, and even Devon) She's been replaced by all of them!

I really like Aisha.

13 Stingray

The glue that keeps Miyagi Do, Cobra Kai, Eagle Fang, and the kids who don't do karate on decent terms with each other. This guy is friendly to about anyone.

Such a funny character.

14 Chozen Toguchi
15 Yasmine
16 Carmen Diaz

She and her mother are really nice to Robby in season 5, even though he accidentally kicked Miguel of a railing. I'm so glad they're friendly to Robby and never got angry at him for what happened.

17 Terry Silver
18 Kenny Payne
19 Ali Mills
20 Shawn Payne

He constantly bullied poor Robby in Juvie. He may have became okay, but he's worse than Kyler.

21 Louie LaRusso
22 Master Todd
23 Anthony LaRusso

I really don't like him at all. In seasons 1-3, he's very annoying and a brat and in season 4, he's a bully! He's better in season 5, but my opinion is still the same. Kenny's antics of him were downright hilarious. But I hated how Robby and Hawk almost got killed because of him. Kenny was a monster in season 5. Anthony's only redeeming quality is that he's nice to Robby and looks up to him.

24 Tom Cole
25 Kyler

I don't why a lot of people hate Kyler, sure he may be kind of mean often, but there is more to him than people see. 1) In season 3, I felt really bad for him when he had to watch his friend get a beatdown. Poor Kyler:( 2) something he said about his dad makes me think that his dad abuses him. 3) He's nicer in season 4 and he's made decent friends and he's like an older brother figure to Kenny just like Robby. 4) He's had me laughing my head off in seasons 4 and 5. He is most hilarious character in the show in my opinion. 5) He quit Cobra Kai in the season 5 finale after seeing what an awful man Sliver is, and it was super hilarious when he threw his shirt at Sliver the hardest and he looked like he was the angriest out of all the Cobra Kais. I like Kyler, and maybe this will change people's viewpoints of him.
