Top 10 X-Files Characters

Which character on the hit TV Show "X-Files" do you think is the best and one that show couldn't have done without?
The Top Ten
1 Dana Katherine Scully

One of the best, most beautiful, and complex characters I've ever seen. Played wonderfully by Gillian Anderson.

The heart and soul of the show, in my opinion. There's no X-Files without her.

Haha, 81%, how awesome is that? The sexiest woman on TV, the only actress who can produce a scared face when needed, or a shocked face when needed.

2 Fox William Mulder

They both have their annoying qualities, but Scully's stubborn refusal to give Mulder's almost-always-true theories any credence until right at the end of season seven when she suddenly switches around got on my nerves when I watched through again recently.

I like Mulder's goofy humour and his lonely lifestyle too. Though the last season especially did his character disservice, we can comfortably forget those seasons ever happened.

There would be no X-Files without him! The moment he left the show, things started to go downhill. I feel like his personality adds so much to the overall feel of the show, it is simply impossible to imagine the X-Files without his presence!

The most wonderful and complex character in the world, the unforgettable Fox Mulder. Outstanding performance by Duchovny. It says something that after the X-Files he has created another wonderful character, Hank Moody in Californication. Let's hope he keeps getting chances to stretch his gifts and surprises his audiences.

3 C.G.B Spender Cigeratte Smoking Man

Overall a solid character. He adds mystery and intrigue in a show that's all about just that. Gotta rate him as my favourite character because in a lot of ways he really isn't as villainous as he is held up to be.

Amazing character. He is the mystery and darkness itself.

4 Walter Sergie Skinner
5 Alex Krycek

Best character by far. Never should've killed him off.

He should have appeared more!

He's the best character.

6 John J. Doggett

I feel that John Doggett was the only "real" character on the show. He sort of brought everything back down to earth, in a manner of speaking, which was refreshing. Perhaps that's why so many disliked the last two seasons though, given the entire pretense of the show itself was anything but "down to earth".

7 Monica Reyes

Had a difficult role, loved her humor, and the way she saw other cast members' problems.

8 John Fitzgerald Byers
9 Flukeman

He was a Gollum knockoff.

10 Melvin Frohike
The Contenders
11 Mr. X
12 Tooms
13 Langley
14 Deep Throat
15 Cassandra Spender
16 Diana Fowley

The most attractive woman in the X-Files. Mulder dreams of a peaceful life with Diana Fowley and not Scully. Besides, she was a better coworker and FBI agent and loves and respects Mulder.

17 Robert Patrick Modell
18 Melissa Scully
19 Phoebe Green

Played by the wonderful, amazing Amanda Pays, one of the most talented actresses in the world. Phoebe also loves Fox Mulder, the real hero, the drive behind the X-Files.

20 Max
21 Marina Covarrubias
22 The Peacock Brothers
23 Bear
24 Eugene Tooms
