Daryl Dixon - The Walking Dead
Most fans can collectively agree that Daryl Dixon is the best character on The Walking Dead. His character development is one of the highlights of the series, and we can't imagine the show without him.
Stiles Stilinski - Teen Wolf
We love Scott McCall and would never want another lead, but Stiles was singlehandedly what made the show worth watching. His relationship with Scott and his romance with Lydia were the highlight of the series, and fans can agree that the season Dylan O'Brien left the show was ultimately the worst.
Klaus Hargreeves - The Umbrella Academy
Klaus takes The Umbrella Academy from good to great. While everyone in the Hargreeves family brings something special to the table, it's Klaus' personality that puts the show over the top.
Seth Cohan - The OC
Seth's personality and his relationship with Summer are the sole reason to watch The OC. The show may have supposedly been about Ryan, but it was Seth who carried the show on his back.
Jesse Pinkman - Breaking Bad
Walter White was a compelling protagonist for sure, but Jesse was the breakout star. The character brought something unique to the series and ended up playing a much more significant role than initially intended.
Ron Swanson - Parks and Recreation
We love all the characters on Parks and Rec, and Leslie Knope is a fantastic protagonist. But no one expected Ron Swanson to become so beloved, and it was his personality that made the show so distinguishable from other sitcoms that were on at the time.
