List Rules Vote up the characters you thought were the MVPs of 'Stranger Things' Season 3.

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.

1
Steve Harrington is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?

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.

2
Dustin Henderson is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?

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.

3
Jim Hopper is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?

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.

4
Eleven is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?

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.

5
Robin is listed (or ranked) 5 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?
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.

6
Dr. Alexei is listed (or ranked) 6 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?
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.

7
Max Mayfield is listed (or ranked) 7 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?

Max got closer to El this season while also finally dealing with her awful brother, Billy.

8
Joyce Byers is listed (or ranked) 8 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?

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.

9
Erica Sinclair is listed (or ranked) 9 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?
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.

10
Nancy Wheeler is listed (or ranked) 10 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?

Nancy's journalistic chops were on full display this season as she pieced together the Mind Flayer's plot.

11
Murray Bauman is listed (or ranked) 11 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?

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.

12
Will Byers is listed (or ranked) 12 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?

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.

13
Lucas Sinclair is listed (or ranked) 13 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?

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.

14
Mike Wheeler is listed (or ranked) 14 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?

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.

15
Jonathan Byers is listed (or ranked) 15 on the list Who Was The MVP Of 'Stranger Things' Season 3?

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.
