Top Ten The Walking Dead (Video Game) Characters

My favorite characters in the video game, The Walking Dead.

The Top Ten

1 Lee Everett Lee Everett Lee Everett is the main character of the first season of The Walking Dead video game. Lee is the player character in the first season of the game, appearing in five episodes.

Lee was my favorite guy! He is so amazing and he is the best characters! He will do anything to protect Clem! But until the end he died that made me feel sad and angry. I am so mad that the zombie bit lee! Now... Until I saw his death I was crying very bad! I had nightmares about him in my sleep. But until season 2 comes out Clem will be by herself. What happens a person was there and being mean to Clem or fighting off zombies. I wish lee was there and still alive so he can protect Clem from zombies and people who are trying to hurt or kill her. :(

Lee is honestly one of the best characters to ever exist in video game history. He's kind, he's generous. but its his undying loyalty is the best bit about Lee Everett. And his father daughter relationship is the sweetest thing ever in video game history. It was hard for all the Walking Dead community to see him go. Many were not interested in Season 2, due to not having Lee there. Lee may not get along with all the characters and he may be a murderer. But that doesn't make him a horrible person, the great thing with Lee is he doesn't lie, he is a honest person. And I think we can all agree that Lee's ex-wife is a complete idiot. Lee has moved all the players of The Walking Dead community. Lee new what the right thing to do in quick situations, he would do anything for Clementine, Lee always looked out for the kids, Lee put everyone before himself, Lee never gave up even when he got bit. But most of all Lee was a kind souled person and truly deserved a better ending. R.I.P Lee, rest ...more

Without him, there would be no story.

2 Kenny

Kenny is just one of those characters whom you can become attached to. He has flaws, which makes him human and more likable, but he loves his family and has a good heart. If you back him up, you will reap the rewards of a friendship that does not seem confined to the virtual emotions of a video game.

Kenny is a true hero, he saves Lee from the zombie horde when all hope seemed lost, he survived countless encounters with mad bandits and cannibal survivors, he had to go through the loss of his wife and son dying, he stayed with Lee when Lee was going to die, he helped find Clementine, sacrificed himself to save Ben/Christa, Saves Clementine countless times and stays with her till the very end. When it's Kenny VS Jane, the one I picked was the one I loved, and the one I loved was the moustache man who has been with us since the very first episode of Season 1... Long live kenny!

Ever since the first chapters in the game I was undeniably in love with him and his family, he was always there to rely on even though he has his flaws and temper. When his family died it made me cry for all of the three characters, and let's not forget about what happened to Kenny in the end. I felt like he didn't deserve what had happened and that Benny shoulda died alone instead if it was to happen after all that the group had gone through (I know I'm a bad person for that) So when my heart had been ripped out by Kenny in the first game for numerous times, I was absolutely stunned when he appeared in the second game. I literally cried, I was so happy that he was back again. He always had his bad points, but in the end, he was a good and loyal friend. I expect everyone who shot him in the end ro think deeply about their doings.

Kenny, the character in the entire franchise with best character development. Basically the most interesting one.
I love his personality. So many bad things have happened to him, so many losses, but he keeps on going, no matter what, he does not give up. He keeps on living for only one thing that matters to him: Family.
He will do anything for the people he cares about.
And it's very shocking to see what the world of TWD has made him becoming:
A depressive, short-tempered, violent and disturbed maniac - with a golden heart in him, that will never get lost.

And seriously, he has inspired me. In the end family IS all that matters and you always have to stay loyal to family and friends. And also, you never give up. You don't just end it because it's hard.
I actually have been through really messed up times myself and I really thought about suicide sometimes.
But then I played S1 and S2 and I met Kenny, he might have saved my life...

3 Clementine

Clementine is the cutest kid ever who can survive on her own! Truly the best character ever in the walking dead. So much awesomeness.

Clementine is amazing and lived the longest so far in her previous teams. She is extremely hardcore and sorry Kenny fans but she's way more compassionate and doesn't get herself all drunk. She's also very mature for her age and I can actually relate to her more than any other character surprisingly. Also Kenny fans please no hate for this is merely my opinion and I respect yours as well and see your reasons.

How is Kenny higher than the sweet girl you died to find? She is badass from all those zombie kills!

Clementine is the best because she was trained by a father he never had! And that was Lee :) Hope they make season 4 final where...we don't have to pick between Clementine and AJ...which I am afraid TellTale is thinking right now... Please telltale enough already we can't survive anymore shocking blows...1st Lee and now Clem! no no no...please she is all we have don't take her too. Cure the world otherwise Lee's death will be in vein! :/

4 Carley

Carley is a person with a very good moral. She is always helping people instead of letting them die and becomes Lees love interest. If there was one character who I would have know Lee's past it would be her. I disliked the way they killed her though. I give Telltale props for shock value but I think they should have kept her around more to build more of a relationship with Lee before killing her off or making her whereabouts unknown. Plus even though I was shocked by Carley's death I think I would have been more surprised to see Lilly shoot herself instead. I also hate the fact that all Lee would've needed to say to keep her from getting killed was that she was the one who sent you in to check on the stolen supplies in the first place. She literally says "it's probably worth following up with Lilly about the stolen supplies.", and it didn't even give you the option to say that

Carley saved Lee and Clementine many many times even if it risks it. I don't care if she doesn't know about the batteries. It's the zombie apocalypse does it even matter? She is so much better than Doug (Not hating on him). She's third in my book. Wish she could've at least made it in Episode 4. God... I hate Lilly... Hope she doesn't return in Season 3. If she does, then I'd shoot her right away if there's an option to. - chris267

She is a great shot, speaks her mind, and is one of the few characters that could have had a great relationship with Lee it was sad to see her die.

I will do anything to save Carley she is good with a gun and she is hot

5 Luke

Luke would have left Clem in the forest to died and become a walker who said to taking her to the cabin pete who was against it luke. Luke treated Clem like crap in the forest when he though Clem was bit that act like a hypocrite and get after them of doing it. Asks about your dead parent and how lee die. Get piss off if you judged his friend and get piss off if you stand up for your friend. Get caught steal food Kenny lost his eye because of it then show not remorse of it and want to leave him get piss off if you say no. Has sex instead of helping the group. More upset about jane leaving who he barely know then the deaths of nick and sarah. Cover up a murder. Didn't listen to Clem and get shot. Treated people who gave him food and a place to stay. Asks how Kenny family died. Run away when his friends were in trouble. Was going to leave sarah to die. Show more concern about jane live and didn't bother thinking about Sarah. Want to stay instead of finding food.

Luke suck, I was piss off that Clem couldn't kill him, I was piss when he return in episode 3 and 4, it took why to long for that ass to died why to long. I happy he dies and can't be saved and very happy if you make the RIGHT choice and not risks your life for ass that doesn't not deserve it, Bonnie can died to they both be walkers forever which is what they deserve. It pathetic that people cryed and are not going to playing s3 because luke died pathetic really pathetic. This guy piss he off the second I met him, I thought he was going to get better but no, covering a murder, stuffing his face instead of helping his group, having sex instead of helping his group, helping someone who try to kill us, man very episode he just got worst, the happiness moment is when he Finally die it just took dame long. It gross that his fan what him to have sex with Clem which is why they killed him, because gross pervert pedophilia don't deserve a luke ending they deserve to be punished and they ...more

Dang, a lot of hate comments about Luke even though just their opinion. Luke is actually like a Big Brother Type of Guy, Like the cabin group sais "Luke will be there, he won't leave us behind" and guess what he came back! Even though I was mad at him because he didn't guard the walkers instead he had to do it with Jane because he needed it. Too make it short, he's a great guy

I love Luke! After Lee he was the only one who trusted you, who kept you safe. Yes, Kenny was there but he had a lot of problems, he had to go trough a lot. Now people need to stop being so mean to Luke, he was an amazing guy and I balled my eyes out when he died because he didn't deserve it at all. So I look at these comments and I get so pissed off, I know people can have their opinions but don't be so mean about them. I would've rather Jane, Mike, Bonnie to die all together then Luke die. I loved him so much, he was gonna be a father too (if Jane didn't kill herself in season 3). I just wish he was still there. Lee, Luke and Kenny are my babies :). Even though they all didn't make it, I love them sooo much ❤️

6 Omid

He is not a bad guy, always thinking positive and caring about others. Also, even in bad situations he can stay positive or ironic, and that's because I like him. He reminds me on myself or how I would like to be and I really would like to know him in reallife.

Omid is the man, funniest character in the game

Omid was the comic relief. To bad that stupid gangsta shot him.

I wanted to vote for Carley and Omid but I'm giving it to Omid. Omid, well 1st he's so adorable and loving. Nice guy, Good personality. Very Friendly and Happy :D

7 Chuck

Reason why Clementine is alive (in a lot of ways). He was a great man, so sad he killed him off. If only you had a choice to save him.

Chuck is the reason Clementine is alive from Ben running away but I still think Chuck should have lived and kill the kidnapper.

It turn's out he is one of the people who barely swear... (There are a lot of swear's in this game. )

Chuck better then luke

8 Ben

Everyone thinks Kenny lost everything, when Ben also lost his family, his school friends. All of these people would be extremely close to him. Ben is just poorly written and unrealistic, his character is just a tool to progress the story on until his death. He tries to save the group but ends up making a mistake, just like a normal human. People love Kenny for his countless mistakes he makes and claim its him just been a human, but Ben does exactly the same but people hate him for it. Ben also sticks by you at all cost where as Kenny only looks out for him and his family.

I honestly see myself in Ben, making him my favorite character in the game. He never wanted to hurt anybody, and I think he actually saved a lot of lives with his actions. Just think for a moment: If the bandits didn't get medicine from Ben, how else would they get it? By waiting for Lee and Kenny to go out looking for supplies, killing EVERYONE, and then ambushing Lee and Kenny when they got back. Then they would loot the camp. Sure Carley/Doug, Katjaa, and Duck die, but that is better then EVERYONE dead. He always got everyone's bull, and was hated by most of the survivors. Kenny always was pushing him around, and kept telling him he should be dead. Even though he always had the pure intentions, he was still hated my most. He was just a kid, he didn't deserve what he got in the end.

Ben has found it very tough, like most character within the group he loses his whole family or they are unknown. Like he says in episode 5 if you choose to save him he stands up Kenny.

I think we are all a Ben in the inside

9 Mark

Honest, good forgiving guy with a great and useful skill set. Would've liked to see more of him.

A great guy, too bad he's dead, those St. Johns killed him and cut his legs off. Damn, he was so good, he was like my favourite character.

He was a great guy who should have lasted all season and beyond, great at garnering sympathy, was as great as Kenny just poorly written still he was the most popular character of episode 2 and great death scene. More than half of people helped him and gave food in episode 2 which just shows how much he could do with so little.

I loved Mark R.I.P

10 Doug

While most people killed him off in the first episode, I found him one of the best comic reliefs in the game, where at one point he saves your life with a laser pointer.

The most underrated character in the game.

Most people dismissed him right off as a non-valuable nerd, but I find him the most human out of everybody in the game. He never boss anybody around, he don't fight zombies her and there, but he always save people whenever he can, look what he did to Carley in Macon and how he died when he's saving Ben. I can relate to him the most and in real life I would certainly be best friends with him. I love him so much.

Doug is the most underrated character in the game. I hate the fact that Carley got more attention than him. - Kana79

The Contenders

11 Lily

Lilly is a really great character with a lot of potential. She is misunderstood and actually has some good points. I believe if she lived as long as Kenny then more people would've sided with her. I believe she is still alive and will be in season two. She made one mistake, killing Carley/Doug, but if she explains and apologize, I can forgive her one mistake.

I think out of Kenny and her, she's the most rational leader of the group. And she isn't that bad as a character. You can even see her soft sympathetic side if you sided with her.
Overall she's a pretty decent character, unlike Kenny.

I don't know why, but no matter what she does, I always end up liking her even more than before. She's badass, bottom line.

Lilly is great! One of my favourite characters. In my opinion she is better than Kenny. #TeamLilly! - Kana79

12 Christa

THIS CONTAINS SPOILERS. IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY PLAYED OR SEEN SEASON 2, DON'T READ THIS.

In my opinion, Christa is one of the few characters in the game that is facing problems in the present. I mean, think about it; she was pregnant, (up until season 2) Omid has now been shot, and she was confronted and possibly beaten up or even KILLED by a gang (? ). Even though I'm pretty sure that this poll (or whatever) is closed, I wanted to type up my opinion of Christa publicly.

I like Christa because she took care of Clementine all by herself for 16 months, longer than Lee. I think it's possible for her appearance in Season 3.

Christa is single handedly one of the best survivors in the game. She managed to survive with Clem for 16 months alone and that isn't by any means a small feat.

13 Carlos

He was so cool. I wish he was still around. He ended up becoming a plot device to further the development of an annoying and ultimately doomed character (sarah).

Carlos is awesome he may come off as mean but he's just that way to protect sarah

I liked how he was always trying to protect Sarah from the cruel world that they're in, he was a very good character, I just wish he would've lived longer

Carlos was very weak man

14 Javier Garcia

He always tries to do the right thing, and even though he's no Lee for Clementine, he's a good friend that will always have her back and he has good intentions. - lillypho27

He's really grown on me. He's a surprisingly good leader and a good companion for Clementine. I also enjoy his dialogue and choices available to be honest

Javier is one of the best things in A New Frontier. I wish the episodes were longer so he can have more development. - Kana79

He really was the best new character in the 3rd season

15 Alvin

What I liked mostly about him was that he died as a hero, sacrificing his life and that was something completely unexpected. When you usually see you don't see a hero. But that scene proved how much of a badass he really is.

I can't believe he's 15 but Alvin a Kind, Loving Father, he even helped Clementine from her bite (Determinant) and even gave her a juice box. he's such a generous man, too bad Carver beat him up and got killed. Either way he's a Kind Father and now he's with Rebecca.

Alvin is a nice guy he didn't deserve to die in episode 2 or if you save him bill carver might kill him In 3 but he trusted clemmy in episode 1 and took care of rebbeca and I like walter but dumbass bill killed him nobody deserves to die on this game but bill. I'm glad kenny lived he was epic and he is still a bit funny but if he dies I'm blaming carver. And if carlos die I'm blaming carver alsi and bonnie is on 400 days why is she working for carver damn I can't trust anyone anymore

Alvin is a nice guy and funny

What I liked mostly about him was that he died as a hero, sacrificing his life and that was something completely unexpected. When you usually see you don't see a hero. But that scene proved how much of a badass he really is.

16 Nick

SPOILER

His death as a zombie was both brutal and heartbreaking. But at the same time I hate Telltale for making his death a bit contrived/convenient. Same for Luke!

Nick is sometime mean but I found out he got a good heart because he said sorry to clem

He's a troubled kid trying to survive an apocalypse without his loved ones. He's been through a lot because he lost the ones he loved. He would do anything to protect his friends. He's a good guy

He was just annoying, I'm sure he was a good guy, but I just didn't like him very much

17 Katjaa

When I saw this list, I thought to myself, hey, why not vote for Lilly? But when I saw poor Katjaa this far down, I was like, oh hell no! Katjaa deserved better. She is actually my second favorite character, after Lilly. She has great potential but instead her overrated husband got ALL the attention. I feel SO bad for her. Rest in peace, Katjaa.

I think she is a realistic character. She wants whats best for her family and group. Nobody ever notices how loyal she actually is. Her death was horrible.

In my opinion she was wasted as a character. She had barely any lines and was completely useless until the middle of episode three. But I realized that she just wanted her son to be okay. But when he wasn't she couldn't handle it. RIP KATJAA

I wish the fandom gave more love to Katjaa. She is kind and caring. She should have lived longer. Her death really saddens me. - Kana79

18 Pete

Pete could've been the new Lee! He was my favorite cabin survivor and was the nicest to Clementine. In the end, he was killed off too early for character development for Nick (which Nick never even got! ) Nick should've died instead of Pete.

Pete didn't deserve to die that way

It's a pity they killed him off too soon. He and Luke were my favourite from the cabin survivors.

Uncle Pete was amazing. Shame he died so soon. :( - Kana79

19 Walter

I felt so bad for Walter, and the way he saved Nick. You could tell he was still grieved when he shot the Walker, but he knew Nick was a good guy based off of what Clementine told him. (Unless you choose to tell Walter that Nick is just like all the others)

He's such a nice guy, I can't believe he wasn't even on the list! - clementineishere

I feel bad for him and Matthew...

How could you not like him?

V 2 Comments
20 Molly

I think Molly is the most badass character in the game. She beat the sh$t out of Lee and Kenny and owns walkers with her ice axe, yet she also cares about other people

Best character there is! Greatest survivor, greater ally!

If you have to save her and you miss the shot, she will escape.

But when you kill the zombie she will later apologize for not mounting a boat.

I think that is very crappy, because this apologies is clearly for not crossroading a story.

She needs more love...I can't believe she's below Lilly. She's so much stronger, and so much more reasonable.
