Fans and critics can debate the minutiae from sketches to casts when they dissect and discuss Saturday Night Live, but the fact is that it still churns out weekly episodes that get people talking. When a Kristen Wiig character starts writhing around and repeating herself you know the sketch is going to be a winner. In the four decades since Saturday Night Live first aired in 1975, the series' cultural reach has been one of its defining legacies and that wouldn't be the case without the series' cast members and the bold, insane, and nonsense characters that they've brought into the world. 

While everyone can quote their favorite lines from Turd Ferguson (Burt Reynolds), Stefon, or MacGruber, it takes an SNL purist to remember the countless characters that are less iconic. But for Kristen Wiig, who began her run on SNL back in 2005 and quickly broke out into an A-list star, there just aren't that many characters that haven't become iconic. The best Kristen Wiig SNL characters are usually shy and awkward wierdos who contort their bodies into strange positions while yelling - or singing, as is the case of Dooneese backing up her sisters on the Lawrence Welk Show. Wiig brings an unbounded energy to her characters, making her Target Lady or Sue feel like emotion bombs about to go off.

Just by looking at all the Kristen Wiig characters from Saturday Night Live on this list, it's obvious that Wiig is one of the best things to come out of the show from the previous generation of cast members. To celebrate her weird energy, let's get a job at Target, leave the register because there's a sale on, and rank this list of all Kristen Wiig's characters from Saturday Night Live.
