Every Character In The 'Borderlands' Series, Ranked By Fans

We are ranking every character in the Borderlands series! From every badass vault hunter in the Borderlands series to non-playable characters to even memorable antagonists, this list has them all! Ever since the first Borderlands was released back in 2009, the game introduced players with a large cast of quirky and eccentric characters that is entirely original to the series. With every new installment and spin-off, the cast grows larger and more diverse than ever before and we love to see them show up every time.

The top Borderlands characters not only stand out with their own personality and quirks, but they are also memorable for their impact on the overall story of the series. Spin-offs game like Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, and Tales from the Borderlands have introduced new characters such as Rhys and Vaughn who not only captured the hearts of fans by their quirky adventure throughout Pandora and beyond. Meanwhile characters from downloadable content and expansions such as Mad Moxxi and Mr. Torgue became instant fan favorites for their unique personality and fun side quests. Which character from the Borderlands series do you think is the best?
