Stranger Things features heroes of all ages, from adults right down to pre-teens.

    Steve won his first fight this season - against a Russian scientist, no less. He also plunged into the depths of a secret base and withstood a Russian interrogation, all while maintaining his title of World's Raddest Babysitter.

    Dustin spent most of the season seperated from his closest friends, but that didn't stop him from finding and infiltrating a secret Russian base hidden beneath Starcourt Mall.

    Hopper managed to juggle both parenting a lovestruck teenage girl and dismantling a Russian plot to re-open the Upside Down, all while under chase by a Terminator-esque hit man.

    Robin

    Robin went from scooping ice cream at Scoops Ahoy to cracking Russian codes, infiltrating bases, getting drugged, and learning about alternate dimensions, all of which she took in stride.

    Dr. Alexei

    Despite starting out the season by trying to open the rift to the Upside Down, Russian scientist Dr. Alexei quickly became one of the most lovable and pivotal figures of Season 3 by giving Hopper and Joyce information on how to take down the Russian base.

    Joyce might be a better cop than Hopper - she managed to piece together clues and evidence faster than the Hawkins police chief throughout the entire season.

    Hopper turned to Murray for help in taking down the Russian base. Despite being a bit eccentric, Murray helped translate Russian and was instrumental in shutting down the gate to the Upside Down.

    Erica Sinclair

    Erica went from just being "Lucas's little sister" to being a full member of the party in Season 3. She helped Dustin, Steve, and Robin infiltrate a Russian base and proved she's a whiz with numbers.

    Will Byers

    Noah Schnapp

    Will just wanted to spend his summer playing D&D, but instead, he had to deal with the Mind Flayer yet again. Since Will already interacted with the Mind Flayer before, he was able to sense the monster once it was close.

    Lucas was mostly doling out relationship advice throughout this season, but that didn't stop him from getting his slingshot ready when the Upside Down came knocking.

    Mike plunged headlong into the throes of young love this season, which might be even more terrifying than both the Mind Flayer and evil Russian agents combined.

    Jonathan Byers

    Charlie Heaton

    Jonathan's career as a photographer looked promising in Season 3, but the eldest Byers also proved himself to be a quick thinker when everything began falling apart in the last few episodes.
