I love this show and I never did a top 5 or any other item regarding “How I Met Your Mother”. Here are my favorite characters ranked.
5. Lily Aldren
Although she has a cute-like appearance, Lily is far from innocent. She is known to be an extremely sexual person. Lily can also be a rather manipulative person, when she doesn’t approve of something she will go out of her way to change it. Being a kindergarten teacher she has also developed a sense of justice.
4. Ted Mosby
Ted is a hopeless romantic, being a strong believer in destiny and constantly searches for his soul mate. He is an architect and later a college professor. Ted has some annoying flaws like correcting grammar (which I also do) and he can be very whiny.
3. Barney Stinson
Barney is a lady’s man and has no intention of settling down. He is very persuasive, has a somewhat childish personality but also has a more tender and soft side when it comes to his family. His friends think Barney has some unusual and annoying habits, like lame catchphrases, sometimes talking in a high pitched voice and spacing out.
2. Marshall Eriksen
Marshall is very polite, loving, caring and confident, but also extremely emotional. He is very passionate about what he does and cares deeply for his family and friends. Marshall is very superstitious, believes in myths and loves “Star Wars”. I think, of all the characters, I’m most like Marshall.
1. Robin Scherbatsky
Robin works as a journalist and was born in Canada. She is often made fun of because of that and sometimes she realizes she is the only Canadian in the group. Robin has some strange interests, like guns, cigars and dogs. Robin hates nicknames. She is a fiercely independent woman.
