Top 10 The Walking Dead Characters

The Top Ten

1 Daryl Dixon Daryl Dixon Daryl Dixon is a fictional character from the American television series The Walking Dead portrayed by Norman Reedus. He is an original character and has no comic counterpart.

Definitely the perfect person for the Apocalypse. He knows how to survive, fight, kill, and doesn't need other people to help him. What really makes him perfect though, is the fact that he isn't helping other people, smart enough to take orders and not sides, and work as a team with the rest of the characters - shadownite90

He's a character that really changes throughout the seasons he starts off a lot like his brother but over time he changes into a nicer person! He's a really complex character that I have laughed and cried with! He gets funny 1 liners and some badass scenes like pulling an arrow from his stomach to shoot a walker! And there is the potential for a relationship with carol (another great character)! I just hope do much he won't get killed in season 4 like the writer is implying I'm praying its not goodbye daryl if it is no one watching will have a dry eye!

Daryl is one of those guys that plays the perfect role. He's tough, he acts as if the apocalypse is nothing new, and he goes out there with worrying and does his best. Has great survival skills and cares, (you can tell he cares by how much work he put into trying to find sophia)

He's been my favorite since the show started

2 Rick Grimes Rick Grimes Richard "Rick" Grimes is a fictional character and the protagonist in the comic book series The Walking Dead and in the television series of the same name, portrayed by Andrew Lincoln.

Good guy, marksman and a great father I couldn't think of a better character if I tried and if you think about how he has progressed of the seasons from being; season 1 a badass season 2 a leader and season 3 he shows his emotional side after losing so much and gaining so little.

I fell in love with Rick the moment he woke up in the hospital. I'd never want to watch the show without him. It just wouldn't be the same. He's a good guy, someone you can't help but respect. After everything he's been through, he still has a decency about him, a human component that hasn't been touched. He's a wonderful father and a best friend you could ever hope for. He's had to do things that no one else has had to do and that no one should have to do. He took on the responsibility of being a leader and is the best choice for the job. He always comes up with the great solutions. The difference between him and all the other leaders they come across is that he is a good person, not mentally insane, his leadership hasn't gone to his head and he's not trying to take over the world. He's fair and doesn't steal from people. He just wants a place to for he and his people to live so they won't be attacked by walkers. I never want to see them leave Alexandria. They at least deserve that.

Yes a great leader and puts his people first.

Best Leader Ever

3 Glenn Rhee Glenn Rhee Glenn Rhee is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Steven Yeun in the AMC television series of the same name.

At the beginning of the series Glenn always risked his life for the group and had the most upbeat nature. I felt in series 3 he got worse because of always having to worry about Maggie. I just wan't Glenn back to how he was in season 1 and 2.

Glenn Rhee has been the best character in the show in my opinion, he was always so cool, calm and collected. He cared about his group dearly (calling them his family) and was willing to risk his life for them when needed. Unlike that of Rick he doesn't lash out and do something stupid from time to time and he gives people chances instead of writing them off for no reason. Also unlike Daryl (who I think is seriously overrated) he does not mope around like a teenager and say stupid things. Glenn made fair decisions, treated people with respect, looked after his wife and group 24/7 and calmed situations that could have gotten seriously out of hand. It was the most heartbreaking moment ever on the show when he died because he had been an amazing character from the very start, from when he first saved Rick from the tank in Atlanta. Glenn had the best morals and will surely be missed by every fan of the show. I believe that he should be favoured more than the likes of Daryl who mopes around ...more

Ever sense the beginning of the show, glenn has always been the kind of guy I would want to survive with. He is also, in my opinion, one of the best characters on the show, simply because of his development. Oh, and then there's the scene where he kills the zombie with the chair, making anything darrl has ever done look about as badass as cuddling with teddy bears.

Lets faking go the best

4 Michonne Michonne Michonne is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Danai Gurira in the television series of the same name.

She's the most badass girl on this whole show. I like how she's the strong but silent type. She can also be very funny and sweet (when she got Carl his picture back). How badass is it that she carried two walkers on chains and slices their heads off with a ninja sword?! The best character by far.

I love the kills she gets with her kendo sword

Michonne is the coolest of the characters by far. She also has a tragic backstory.

A girl. Good guy. Mysterious. Smart. Intuitive. Bad-ass. What more could anyone possibly want you in a favorite character.

6 Carol Peletier Carol Peletier Carol Peletier is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Melissa McBride in the American television series of the same name.

Carol is my favorite character in my opinion because she has become the strongest person in the group, not physically but emotionally. I thought she would never cope with the loss of her daughter but she used that sadness and uses it to make her stronger.

The most consistently developed character in the entire series thus far. A capable, empowered female character, the last original female survivor of the entire series from the season 1 Atlanta Camp group and the last remaining survivor of her immediate family. A domestic abuse victim and frail woman turned total firm decision maker, vigorous survivor and total leadership material all in just 4 seasons. Amazingly portrayed and iconic! Carol!

I can't believe Carol is not higher on this list. While I have mad love for Daryl (especially those arms), I think Carol is ready to do absolutely anything for her friends.

Carol should be number 1

7 Maggie Greene Maggie Greene Maggie Greene is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Lauren Cohan in the American television series of the same name.


I'm sad that they wrote her off, but glad they didn't kill her. She was one of the most badass females in the show. She looked out for everyone in the group. I hope they really do make a movie about her and what she did after Rick disappeared - codgtamk34

I love her, almost as much as I love her love interest Glenn. She can kill walkers, take care of Judith, all while remaining feminine and kind-hearted. She's cool and I can't wait to see more of her.

She is such a strong woman. She some how takes care of Judith and ask very motherly toward her, she loves Glenn and he loves her probably because she's a fighter and can probably kill a walker in her sleep. She is my favorite on the show because she has so many aspects to her that I aspire to be

She is so underrated. She doesn't even appear in some promos, but she has been here for a long time and she has done awesome things, she helped the group more than Carol, Michonne or even Glenn, but people don't want to see a simple woman being badass, they prefer the crossbow man and the katana girl. But I hope and I believe that Maggie will be one of the last humans standing. She is so cool and she will always be my favorite. The last Greene!

8 Merle Dixon Merle Dixon Merle Dixon is a fictional character from the horror drama television series The Walking Dead, which airs on AMC in the United States and is based on the comic book series of the same name.

Merle was my favorite character because his whereabouts and whether he's dead or not is unknown. This is a mystery in the rest of season one and all of season two but even though it took him sol long to return, he wasn't forgotten about because of the fact that his brother was in the group and someone would mention him every now and then. His return was a shock and he also had a knife on his arm, which I think was the most badass weapon on the show. The way he went out was heroic and sad for a lot of people because they just started to like him. I've always liked him but was glad to see him go just was hoping it wouldn't be this soon.

Merle was the most interesting character to watch in The Walking Dead It's a real shame he's gone, and just when he started to be the hero!

He was killed off too soon. The character had so much potential to become so much more. By far my favorite character on the television show.

Even though he was racist and sometimes mean he was yondou in guardians of the galaxy. So that’s good

9 Carl Grimes Carl Grimes Carl Grimes is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Chandler Riggs in the American television series of the same name, which airs on AMC in the United States.

This kid is only like 12 and he acts more grown up than anybody else in the entire group.

Coral why u die - lemur

Carl is Life

He started at 10, now he is gone. He always protected the people around him, including Enid. He was a great person. He understood what the walkers were, and he never took any chances. Even without an eye, he is stronger than most characters. He got shot, she lost an eye, now he was bit. Useless death. He should have been bit in the arm, leg, or not have been bit at all! >:c R.I.P. My favorite character, Carl Grimes.

10 The Governor The Governor The Governor is a fictional character and a primary antagonist from the The Walking Dead comic book and television series.

Best Villain on the show so far. If I were running the series, I would have made it so that the scene of the Governors dead body is gone to not make Michonne walk past it as in the Midseason finale it showed Lilly shaking when she shot the gun and actually did not show him die until episode 9. If fans questioned me on the Governors fate I would say that it's mysterious and undetermined, don't focus on it for now but expect him to be brought back later down the line, his fate right now is like Morales's. Then, later for the Season 6 Finale would say you cannot out run your past, old devils always come back tease and actually not show in the trailer the governor, then when Negan says Ricks name and Rick asks him how do you know me, the Governor then steps out shocking everyone. Then a flashback shows how he escaped and showed Lilly and the Governor escape as she mis fired. Later, Negan himself with his Saviors encounters the Governor and Lilly and Bashes Lilly's brains open and the ...more

He was the most compelling character on the show. I can't remember an episode he appeared in where every moment he had on screen didn't fascinate me. I'd kill him on sight in real life, but I find I really miss his presence on The Walking Dead. He was just so unpredictable. It's a rare villain that can both garner my sympathy and make me thoroughly enjoy watching his heinous actions. In fact, he has to be one of my favorites of all time, and I can't commend David Morrissey enough for his portrayal. I really hope he's worked in again somehow.

He was the best character on the show, but he was too far gone. I'm pretty positive he's dead. Although, he was predominantly a charismatic sociopath, there were moments when I felt like he was once a good man before the apocalypse. Morrissey was a sexy, charming, yet despicable Governor. I could never completely hate his character, even though I really wanted to.

5th best character to me, so far the best villain on the show besides possibly Negan later on but that remains to be seen since he only appeared in one episode. He is a highly interesting villian with a lot of development. It would actually be nice of the show decided to keep him alive as we did not actually see him die but most likely is. Next, we finally get to see the governor in the season 6 finale 2 1/2 Seasons later with Negan and being his right hand man. Then in the Season 6 finale before we see Negan, we see the Governor in the group and have a quick flashback showing that Lilly shot the ground and then picked the Governor up and then escape and patch him up. After that, the Governor walks with Lilly and then sees Negan and his group surround them and then says give us your stuff and then Negan bashes Lilly's skull open after the Governor says he does not have any and then another quick flashback shows the Governor showing the prison and the war and Negan's, wanna join us and ...more

The Contenders

11 Negan Negan Negan is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the American television series of the same name.

Negan was actually a schoolteacher, and a Ping-Pong coach before the Apocalypse. Interesting no? How does such a man becomes ''our Negan", is he truly the evil incarnate we all make him to be?

To understand the appeal of Negan you must take yourself out of the view point imposed by the show. In a world where most kill and plunder, he constructed a structure. Faulty? yes. However this said structure allowed a lot of people to survive and find a place to belong. In a twisted way he believed in the power of people however he didn't believe in their hearts, therefore he ruled by fear.

He Killed Glenn, Abraham and many others, however if you look at it through his eyes; Rick and Gang are the real problem makers, they killed all the members of an entire outpost, Carl shot his men, the walker siege killed many of his team and he almost died due to the Walkers hoard entrapping him and his men. Even then he still didn't want the Hilltops, Alexandria or the Kingdom ...more

Best one

Time for Negan to take the lead in season 10 - tequila

Why negan is outside of the ten?

12 Dale Horvath Dale Horvath Dale Horvath is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Jeffrey DeMunn in the American television series of the same name.

A man who stands by his convictions with a fair and kind heart, he might be seen as a relic of the world before the apocalypse. But if the group came across you in the wild and you needed taking in, no one would hear you complaining about Dale, the man who would invariably have your back.

Just an interesting character who kept his humanity closer than his fear.

Here after watching his death. F man. Really the best character on here so far

A Humanist, a real humanist. As we had seen in the case of randall, that poor hostage, he was the only one against executing him. While as for Rick he had grown in a selfish beast willing to do everything for his family, even murdering some poor innocent guy. Though he was not a leader or a great fighter he was the voice of reason and of humanity.

Best Character in the whole series. I was crying when he died.

13 Beth Greene Beth Greene Beth Greene is a fictional character from the American horror drama television series, The Walking Dead, created by season two showrunner, Glen Mazzara, and portrayed by Emily Kinney.

Beth is my favorite character by far! She has had a hard time in the zombie apocalypse by getting attacked by her dead mom, suicide attempt and seeing her father's head get sliced off. She isn't the usual character to be able to survive a zombie apocalypse and that's why I like her she is a usual 18 year old girl trying to live and be happy

I was so upset when she died! And right after an entire season of developing her character! And I loved her relationship with Daryl. Even if it wasn't leading anywhere romantic it was still a brother/sister or father/daughter kind of relationship and I thought that after hersel died then she would be the person that everyone looked to for hope and an inspiring speech every once in a while! So sad. She was defiantly a great character

Beth is without a doubt my favorite character in the walking dead. I really don't get people who hate her because we'd probably be exactly like her if we were in an apocalypse. She's been through so much yet she's so strong.

It was such a bad decision to kill Beth off right when she had such an amazing story arc! She didn't deserve to die. She is by far the most relatable character in the series.

"Extremely intriguing and hilarious sentence composition with this guy. Super bad-ass, redneck way of speaking, and relatively complex. There's a lot of potential to develop this guy in Season 6.

The toughest and all around most bad-ass character in The Walking Dead.

Abraham has such a great sense of humor mixed with a cognizant appreciation about how messed up certain situations are; yet he continues to work hard & lead others. I would like to believe that his character is much like what I'd would be like during the zombie apocalypse.

My man MORGAN! I knew he would come back in some form or another. Before he rejoined Ricks group there were clips of him from time to time and I was like "yes my man morgan! " Lol always been a fan of him

Is story is so unique to the other cast in the walking and is definitely underrated

He feels more human than the other characters. I am not sure if I would be able to pull that trigger in the very first episode. In Season 3, he was so emotionally broken due to the brutal loss of his son, so now he has nobody in his life. For me, he is the most intriguing character on the show.

Though he is not my favorite I think he should be higher because all the stuff he went through, losing his son and going crazy, writing stuff on walls, setting up traps. I would like to see him in season 5 or something.

17 Andrea Andrea Andrea is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Laurie Holden in the American television series of the same name.

Actually Rick's my favorite and Carol a close second, but I'm voting for Andrea since y'all were just horrible about her in the third season (well not all of you, but enough and I found that sad! ). Andrea and Carol were always my favorite female characters although I think Maggie's great too. She has a good heart- beautiful, strong, compassionate, emotional, ultimately good values... She did a good job before the apocalypse, and she was trying her best afterwards to find herself and her values again, especially after the loss of her little sister. How can you hate on someone who was just trying to do the right thing, as well as find a little something worth living for? The fact that she still tried to find love where she could and had innocence in her heart after everything was hopeful, not stupid. Also, Michonne is cool and all but she should have spoken up more and actually told Andrea what was going on, instead of leaving her there in ignorance as some sort of punishment for not ...more

People don't understand that Andrea wanted Peace. She had just gotten over illness and she was grateful for the stability woodbury offered. Michonne should have pulled Andrea to the side and let her friend know whats up. Andrea finally found peace at woodbury and her mistake was that she didn't see the bigger picture. I love/hated her. She was the most realistic character on the show. A beautiful strong female character with so many flaws. That made her interesting. I liked hoe she always stood up for Shane and even fell for the Governor because she is a human being. She got herself caught in between two worlds. I miss her being on the show but I loved the way she died. It was epic to me! She finally got her peace... just in death while the others are still fighting to live in a world that may already be doomed.

She should have lived because she suffered for Amy's death but she copes with Dale's help, also she's very brave and suffered a huge transformation since the Atlanta camp

I don't get why so many people hate Andrea, personally she was one of my favorites and I feel she was so strong. I really loved how she became so strong with her handgun and skilled with her knife. She also had a good heart trying to keep peace with everybody! They should of never killed her because she had so much potential on the show and I think by now everyone would love her. R.I.P Andrea

18 Shane Walsh Shane Walsh Shane Walsh is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Jon Bernthal in the American television series of the same name.

The Punisher

Shane served a similar position to the Governor for me in some ways. During his time, Shane was the most interesting character on the show, and I was inclined to agree with most of his decisions. His friendship with Rick was great. He might have been one of the group's most valuable assets if Lori hadn't thoroughly screwed up his head. It's tragic, really. By Season 5, Rick has surpassed Shane in the "warped" morality department. Shane was just ahead of his time. Poor bastard.

A good guy pushed into a truly ungrateful role and slowly succumbing to his jealousy and resentment. He's done a lot for the group, but in the end it's always Rick who takes the glory (and the woman he loves). His best friend comes back from the dead and in a way takes everything from him. He is a central member of the group, and yet he is more alone than most others.
I feel he's a great character because he is an antagonist you can really relate to. Also, he gets under Rick's skin like no other. This was the character death I was most upset about, and they didn't deal with its impact quite as much as I feel they should have.
I feel Daryl can't really fill the position Shane had with Rick.

Underrated Character and probably one of the best of the whole series. The impact he left behind has been like no other

19 Rosita Espinosa Rosita Espinosa Rosita Espinosa is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Christian Serratos in the American television series of the same name.

She should be number 1 periodt, if she dies in season 9 twd is cancelled! I don't know why people would rank MERLE THE RACIST, over her tf. The sexism is real

Biggest badass on the show she is great with explosives and a huge asset to the group she handled grief horribly and that's what makes her human she learned from her mistakes and became a better person without totally losing her personality

Rosita is one of my favourite characters besides Rick, Glenn and Negan at this point. She knows how to survive and she is very beautiful and strong. Despite being angry or aggressive at people like Tara and Sasha, which some did not like, I like her aggressiveness because it shows how strong she is. If you kill Rosita off, we riot!

She's getting a lot of character development and she's becoming a great survivor she's proved she can fight and be brave just like the other members of the group.

20 Tyreese Williams Tyreese Williams Tyreese Williams is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Chad Coleman in the American television series of the same name.

My main big guy did not deserve to die, at least not that early, I want to see more of him :(

Why in gods name is he not first? He, rick, carol, and Daryl are the ONLY characters developing at all and learning the benefits of forgiveness and apology. Carol just admitted to tyreese in "the grove" that she killed Karen and David, she did so right after she shot her adopted daughter. That's tough right there. But tyreese forgave her and that's the damn toughest thing anybody has ever done on the show.

Tyreese is clearly the all-time greatest TWD character! He is first and foremost a HUMAN BEING and never loses sight of that. I also really really love Glenn for this reason. Tyreese comes out on top for me though because he's SUCH a loving and sensitive soul on the inside, and a huge, tough, sexy, zombie-killin' badass on the outside. Miss that dude.

Badass zombie killer, not my favourite, but he deserves better than 15. Tyreese would be the perfect last man standing together with daryl

21 Tara Chambler Tara Chambler Tara Chambler is a fictional character from the horror drama television series The Walking Dead, which airs on AMC in the United States and is based on the comic book series of the same name.

She is a pretty cool character, mainly because she really reminds me of Veronica from Fallout New Vegas. - FarrowtheEdgehog15

By far one of the best fighters on the show. She fought through 3 devastating deaths in her family. She is smart and logical and the group needs that. *cough cough rick* Tara can fight through head injuries to sorrow. She sticks up for herself and is underrated. The apocalypse needs someone like her

She is a great character. Her kind of humour is awesome and I'd love to see more scenes with her!

You all need to understand that Tara is a kind-hearted person. Everyone hated her because she was the first to agree with the governor about attacking the prizon. She has stayed emotionally strong through the loss of all 3 family members. While she is no where close to the top woman in the group ( Michonne, Carol, Maggie, Sasha) she emotionally has a lot of potential. And that is why to me, she deserves number 8.

Man I loved axel! He brought some humor to the show in a dark time for everyone. He's a great guy in real life too! I met him at a convention a few years back and he just joked the whole time and talked to everyone like they were a real person and not just another meaningless fan of the show!

He was awesome and he had the best mustache around! And then the governor shot him! R.I.P. Axel we will always remember you...

Nice guy and funny. kindhearted sorry to see him go... Really brutal got shot in head by governor

26 Sasha Williams Sasha Williams Sasha Williams is a fictional character from The Walking Dead, an AMC television horror drama series.

Sasha is, in my opinion, the greatest female character because she has amazing traits in all areas. She's a badass, a fighter, a leader, but most importantly, she's a realist. She disregards the nonsense and strives on and gets it all done. The actress is so great and she's turned this character into a total team player from where she started. Now she's the sharpshooter! Go SASHA!

I love her. Sasha's a great character because she's come so far from season 3 as Tyreese's little sister. She's matured into a young woman, but she's breaking down now over the loss of her boyfriend and is continuing to become a bigger character. She's had nice and slow development so I'm holding out hope she makes it to season 6 to have big scenes with Rick and the others.

I think what makes this character my favorite is that Sonequa Martin Green is such a wonderful theatre actress. Without her, this character would be nothing. Sasha is fierce and dominant, but also really intense and engaging. In season 5, some of the other survivors are falling into categories of predictability but this character keeps surprising me and keeps me on the watch. Love her and want more of her.

She's suffered so much loss in such a short space of time. Her brother and boyfriend are dead, weeks apart, and she's the only survivor of Tyreese's group and the prison newcomers. Sasha is a survivor, but it's going to be painful seeing her grieve. I love her, she's my favorite.

He is just so epic

I love Jesus. I'm really surprised he's not higher on the list. He's a kick ass character and getting Tom Payne to play him was genius. I guess the more screen time he gets, the more fans he'll get. Honestly, he's the best.

I look forward to seeing more of him in the show, if season 6 is anything to go by he's going to be a fan favourite. - wolphert

He's one of the best, he's amazing, he's played by a great actor, he's verry handsome, he's a good leader, he's a ninja... He's better than the real Jesus!

I liked her right off the bat. Her struggles in episode 2 "JSS" are relatable. She really grew as a character - and as a doctor!

I wish she wasn't killed off so soon.

One of the best characters of 7 & 8 seasons! Dwight is kind of "stealing the spotlight" from Daryl, becoming very contraversial and somewhere in-between antagonist and anti-hero along the way. The writing of this character is almost top-notch. Dwight is exteremly interesting to watch!

Awesome character!

He's amazing how he stood up to Negan and sided with rick and how he wasn't afraid to steel from Daryl even though he is very intimidating - wlkingdeadmad

Shows moral suffering and the impact of the cult like saviour lifestyle on even the strongest of individuals

34 Noah

Noah is the reason I believe they can kill just about any character--even before their time seems to have come. Dale, Shane, T-Dogg, Tyreese, Bob, Andrea, Merle, and Hershel all died around when it felt narratively "right" for them to die... but Noah was taken from us prematurely. When Mica and Lizzie died, it seemed like a bolt from the blue, but it helped advance Carol's character. Noah just feels like a sign of the unjust nature of the zombie apocalypse, which can take anybody at any time. So likeable, so much potential, such a good actor... but nope. Life is not Alexandria!

Had great potential. I thought he was going to be their architect and build them a fortress in the future.

Really liked where his character was going with the learning how to build.

Really cool character and acting. Wish he was in the show more.

Shame Negan killed him, he made the series a lot more interesting and I enjoyed every scene he was in. Definitely deserves more attention.

Awesome villain, and right hand man of Negan.

39 Jacqui

I really did like Jacqui. She was a very sweet woman and helped with as much as she could. She should not been killed off.

Shouldn't have committed suicide she was nice.

She was extremely nice to every camp member.

The best character! She was so nice

Sophia was sweet and I wished we could have seen more of her

I felt that they spent too many episodes looking for her.

She should be alive!

I love her

A bat on this list? Or his actual wife who died by cancer... :/ - Randomperson101

Sure, why not.

€� look at my dirty girl “

42 Beta

Ryan Hurst is perfect! Most badass villain ever on the show! He feels no pain

43 Eastman

Anyone who doesn't vote for eastman should die

He is super nice what

He should be number 1

44 Otis

Otis was a nice, fat man! He cared for Patricia very much! And then Shane shot him in the leg! R.I.P. Otis, we will all miss you...

Otis I didn't really care for... He also shot Carl

No we don't miss you

He had to die

45 Kenny

A good character in season1, sucks in season 2. His actions put his whole team in trouble! - Randomperson101

I don't really know why but this guy is just likeable (if you don't think about how violent he is).

Yeah he was so cool, even though he dies in season 2 (if you shoot him)

In a weird way he's like daryl

46 Bob Stookey Bob Stookey Bob Stookey is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and the television series of the same name, where he is portrayed by Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.

Bob was a strong character that was flawed. You could see he had a troubled past that he wanted to put behind him but he couldn't. He was a great character that could have survived a little while longer. He went out like a boss at least.

I liked how he survived every group he was with. He should've left/lost the group. Him dying was the most lame thing on the show (and that is a hotly contested position).

One of the most underrated and underdeveloped character in the entirety of the series. He could have been developed way more.

He should have been developed more, this character had so much potential that was put to waste

48 Caesar Martinez

Just one of the best characters on the show. Even if he isn't a main character he has a lot of potential in season 4 now that he has his own group

Dude is skilled with a bat. Also he's funny when he's drunk, and had one of the better deaths in the series.

Man you don't notice it but he's the most badass he did a backflip and kicked merle in the face and he's a bat master

Martinez should have joined the group because he is bossilicious

49 Zach

He looked really nice. Wish I could have seen more of him.R.I.P.

He's a nice kid dies at big spot because of bob, he cood of been a good character and rip, also beth's boyfriend

50 Gareth

Gareth was an evil prick, but there's something about him that's just fun to watch. He rarely stops talking, and seems quite intelligent. Plus, I kind of like cannibalistic villains. He's number 2 so far behind the Governor (unless you count Shane as a villain).

He probably won't be as dangerous as the Governor, but you can tell that this guy is a sociopath. He might last a bit longer than we think.

He killed my favourite character but.. you can't really dislike this guy.
