Stranger Things features heroes of all ages, from adults right down to pre-teens. The show's third season saw these characters seperated and dealing with different but interlinking problems - infiltrating a Russian base, dodging a hit man, and facing off against a monster from an alternate dimension. There are plenty of candidates for who the true MVP of Stranger Things Season 3 is, so cast your vote below to decide.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Eleven's powers were on full display in Season 3 as she faced off against the Mind Flayer and its army of Flayed, all while finding her independence from both Hopper and Mike.
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 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.
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.
Nancy's journalistic chops were on full display this season as she pieced together the Mind Flayer's plot.
Max got closer to El this season while also finally dealing with her awful brother, Billy.
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.
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.
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.
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.
