From our Central Perk regulars to lovable guest stars, we're ranking Friends characters from best to worst. The iconic sitcom not only became a global sensation but also left an indelible mark on pop culture for generations to come. With its perfect blend of humor, relatable storylines, and unforgettable catchphrases - "We were on a break!", "How you doin'?", "Pivot!" - it's no wonder that Friends continues to hold a special place in our hearts even after all these years.

The magic of Friends extends beyond its leading ensemble cast – Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler, Joey, and Phoebe. The show's charm is enriched by the presence of endearing supporting characters like Central Perk's manager Gunther with his unrequited love for Rachel or Chandler's ex-girlfriend Janice with her iconic laugh. Moreover, memorable cameos from celebrities such as Brad Pitt or guest appearances from stars like Paul Rudd further contributed to the show's lasting appeal. Each character delivered their own unique quirks and unforgettable moments that have stood the test of time.

It's time to revisit those hilarious moments and heartwarming connections while casting your vote for who you think is truly deserving of being called "the best." As Rachel would say: "It's like Sophie's Choice!" - but we know true Friends fanatics are up for the challenge. Happy voting!
