It has been 26 years since the first episode of Friends aired, but it is still very much a popular show among original fans and still finds new fans today. Throughout the years, there has been a debate among fans about who among the six friends is the best and worst character. To clear the air, we have listed all six Friends characters ranked from best to worst.
What would you call a guy that will go out of his way to please his friends? It is unarguable that Joey meets all the description of a true friend. He is kind-hearted, empathic, and always willing to take full responsibility for his actions.
Known for being intolerable of her friends’ silly troubles, she is the funniest character in the show. Her straight-talking ability is down to her tough upbringing. Despite not putting up with their excesses, she is kind and nice to them. She even brought Monica and Rachael back together in season six after they had a fight. She is definitely one TV character most of us can relate to.
Rachael has lots of amazing character moments. She began as a spoilt young adult who was searching for independence. From her career success to personal failure, Rachael’s moods are known to shift like the tides during the entire run of the show.
Chandler is an intolerable character, but his funny side sort of masks his bad behaviors. He is caring and kind when he wants to be, but at his worst, he fat-shamed Monica, made homophobic remarks against his father, which overshadowed many of his good moments.
Monica is a friend that is nice, caring, and ready to admit her flaws. But she is hugely annoying, crazy, and a control freak. Despite her bad character edges, her good side has won her a place in the hearts of the show’s fans.
There is no doubt that Ross is the worst friend in the group. As much as he is funny because he is awkward, his attitude is appalling to the point that he always happens to get on his friends’ nerves. His ego and hubris make him unlikeable, and his insecurity is having an unhealthy effect on his friends.
There you have it! Above is a ranking of some characters from Friends from the best to the worst. Even after several years since the TV show has stopped, Friends will always remain an amazing show. If you are yet to watch the show, you should consider doing so.
