Grey's Anatomy Character Ranking

My best to worst list of all main characters and some others that maybe should have been.
  1. 1.
    Alexander Michael Karev
    I've been in love with this character since episode 5 when he told Izzie go 'see your hockey player'. He hates people but is a great peds surgeon. I love an underdog and Alex is the definition. 💙
  2. 2.
    Cristina Yang
    Hands down in the top 5 television characters of all time. Everything about her is perfectly executed. Sandra Oh is my favorite living actress, she is a hero.
  3. 3.
    Lexie Grey
    I will never get over her death. I identify with her somehow and find her charming as hell. RIP Lexipedia you were the best. 💔
  4. 4.
    Meredith Grey
    This woman has taught me a lot and I am forever grateful. This photo is one of the reasons I think I am Mer.
  5. 5.
    Richard Webber
    He will always be chief, and he will always be cooler than you.
  6. 6.
    April Kepner
    As annoying as she was at first she is now twice as endearing. If I'm honest I am April Kepner.
  7. 7.
    If there were awards for eye acting Bokhee would have a few. If you don't know Bokhee you are not a good enough fan.
  8. 8.
    Calliope Iphigenia Torres
    Talk about character growth. Sara is a goddess. She wins most badass name.
  9. 9.
    Derek Shepherd
    He took the time to get Mer and put up with her anyway. That's why he's McDreamy, the hair is just a plus.
  10. 10.
    Addison Forbes Montgomery (Shepherd)
    Addie wins richest name. Cheater she was, but if Mer can forgive, so can I. Also she helps babies.
  11. 11.
    Zola Grey Shepherd
    Speaking of cute babies... Zozo will grow up to be the coolest person ever. What a shame it would be if she didn't end up in the medical field.
  12. 12.
    Amelia Shepherd
    Hate on haters. Here is another underdog, an obviously wounded one. She has survived just about as much as Mer. Get it Amy.
  13. 13.
    Isobel Stevens
    Katherine Heigl wins 3rd place in the worldwide crying competition. I wish she could be higher on the list but she hurt Alex so down she goes.
  14. 14.
    George O'Malley
    Poor George. He would have kicked ass in the army let's be real. ☚ī¸
  15. 15.
    Jackson Avery
    He cool guy walked away from an explosion. He has lots of reasons to be a jerk but he chooses to be wonderful. Japril forever!!
  16. 16.
    Sorry Denny but Henry was the saddest patient death ever. And what a good love story.
  17. 17.
    In early seasons she would be much higher on this list but she just isn't what she used to be. Maybe I miss the Nazi.
  18. 18.
    Mark Slone
    Lexie and Callie loved you so that's enough. Man whore or no.
  19. 19.
    Teddy Altman
    Strong enough to not only deal with Cristina, but teach her. Her character's exit made sense but it was still sad.
  20. 20.
    Owen Hunt
    Usually too ginger and moody for my liking, but he commands so much respect. I love that he was in the army.
  21. 21.
    Maggie is a bit of a mess most days and that makes me like her more. Give her a few more seasons and I'll love her more.
  22. 22.
    Jo Wilson
    Alex loves you so I love you. You are great for each other, just be honest with him. You get a lot of hate cause they just don't get it. Also drunk Jo is best Jo.
  23. 23.
    Arizona Robbins
    I love you most of the time, but you've also been awful sometimes. Your solid and I like you. Also you help the little babies.
  24. 24.
    Nurse Tyler
    I like your name and your sass. You let these docs know who really runs the hospital.
  25. 25.
    McDog. You were a good dog.
  26. 26.
    Shane Ross
    Most important, Smash! Second realizing and following the brilliance that is Cristina Yang makes you one of the most intelligent people on the show.
  27. 27.
    Thanks for the tequila bro.
  28. 28.
    Heather Brooks
    You were totally batty but hilarious. Yet another Nero surgeon gone.
  29. 29.
    Ben Warren
    I wish so very badly he could be higher on the list but honestly I find him completely boring 90% of the time. But man that smile. 😍
  30. 30.
    Stinky 2 aka Intern Steve
    Your name was stinky 2 and I wish I could still see you and Graciella around Grey-Slone.
  31. 31.
    Preston Burke
    How could you not love Cristina for Cristina?? How could you just leave her like that? But hey thanks for giving her everything she has ever wanted and deserved.
  32. 32.
    I pretty much hate you. What makes you think everyone wants to be you? What makes you think you are the smartest person in that hospital? Check yourself Steph.
  33. 33.
    Leah Murphy
    I do hate you Leah Murphy. Gah you were annoying!! And I was very happy to see you go.
  34. 34.
    I have never in my life hated a character as much as Erica Hahn. The needing glasses speech was the only moment of good you had. Shoutout to Brooke Smith for making me cathart so hard.
