The Definitive Ranking Of 43 Characters On "Lost"

These are the official rankings, decided by me, which are set in stone. Spoiler alert, in case you haven’t watched Lost yet.

43. Jacob

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Honestly, F U JACOB. This is all your fault. Everything if your fault. That stupid dude who wore black was cooler than you.

42. Man in Black/ Samuel

Seriously, he was.

41. Ethan

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

A true creep. A bonafide jerk. I wish Ethan never happened.

40. Radzinsky

Kewl name, so there’s that.

39. Charles Widmore

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Ugh Charles, what are we going to do with you???? GO BACK TO THE O.C.

38. The Man in Black’s mother

Remember when Allison Janney played a crazy mother for an episode? That was weird.

37. Nikki

ABC / Bad Robot

She tried to basically kill her boyfriend, poo poo on you NIkki!

36. Horace

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Hey! It’s Courtney Stodden’s ex husband!

35. Christian

ABC / Bad Robot


34. Charlotte

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

She was annoying like omgggg you have a bloody nose, RELAX.

33. Michael Dawson

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Oh Michael. Michael, Michael, Michael. YOU KILLED LIBBY. And we don’t know where Walt is.

32. Libby

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Libby was cool, but also kind of boring.

31. Ana Lucia

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

The damn smoke monster is better than Ana Lucia.

30. Dr. Chang

He was just an innocent doctor that decided to join the Dharma initiative and then make someone press a button forever and ever.

29. Richard

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Richard the thousand year old man or whatever he was would maybe be higher on this list if he didn’t wear so much eyeliner.

28. Shannon

Just when I was starting to think Shannon didn’t completely suck she goes and gets shot. SMH.

27. Danielle Rousseau

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

This is what happens when you live alone on an island for too long.

26. Frank Lapidus

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Zetus LAPIDUS!!! This guy could fly a helicopter even if he needed to desperately brush his hair.

25. Ben

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

No. NO. No to you.

24. Alex Rousseau

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

This girl was badass and also turned out OK having grown up on the island with Ben as a dad.

23. Smoke Monster

As I said above, the Smoke Monster was better than Ana Lucia.

22. Miles

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

At least it was cool he could talk to dead people. Kind of?

21. Claire

Claire, you had your moments, but then you went all insane on us. I’m sorry it had to be this way.

20. Boone

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Boone more like SWOON.

19. Kate

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

KATE WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO WITH YOU. You can’t just play with people’s hearts. Do you love Jack??? DO YOU LOVE SAWYER???? Why are you so quiet? Why did your hair always look so good?

18. Walt

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

It’s not his fault he got lost on the island.

17. Baby Aaron

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

It’s a baby guys!

16. Paulo

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Paulo left us way too soon. Like before we even got to see him with his shirt off. RUDE.

15. Sayid

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

When Sayid was held hostage, we were ALL being held hostage. What a man, what a man, what a mighty good man.

14. Jack Shephard

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Yeah we get it, you are Jack and you are a doctor and can stitch yourself up. BIG WHOOP. Try laughing once in a while!

13. Jin

ABC / Bad Robot / Via


12. Sun

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

<3 <3

11. John Locke

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

John, you’d probably have cracked the top 10 if you didn’t go all EVIL on us. But even though you became a man we didn’t know, you will be in our hearts forever.

10. Juliet

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Juliet was like a little piece of heaven that entered Lost-ville and saved us all. When she sacrificed herself in the bomb-pit that one time, her fate as a hero/wonderful person was sealed.

9. Eko

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Guys, Eko was so cool and he carried a walking stick.

8. Hurley

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Sweet, lovable Hurley. Sorry you had to go through all that shit, but at least you made it out alive.

7. Daniel Faraday

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Without him no one would know or understand anything. He was a hero in a skinny tie.

6. Rose and Bernard

These two are being counted as one because they are the best couple and are probably still living on that Island, loving life, and letting their hair touch their butts. <3 <3 <3 <3

5. Desmond

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Oh beautiful, wonderfully haired Desmond. I’d get LOST with you.

4. Penny

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Desmond and Penny were the perfect couple and she was perfect and everything is so emo right now.

3. Sawyer

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Yes, Sawyer is above Jack on this list. Because even though Sawyer was rough around the edges, he was just a big old softy on the inside. And he looked great coming out of water. And also that face.

2. Charlie

ABC / Bad Robot / Via

Charlie was the best thing to happen to the island and to anyone that ever met him. his death while as if we died. No one will ever be as wonderful as Charlie was. BUt there is still one being that beat him for the number one spot.

1. Vincent

ABC / Bad Robot

ABC / Bad Robot


THE DOG. THE WONDERFUL, PERFECT DOG. Vincent was not only a kind, gentle soul, but he was there to basically make every moment better. He was a dog for crying out loud and he never complained about being on an island with monsters and people dying and time travel. Also he was there to comfort Jack when he was dying. It was beautiful. Vincent forever.
