TOP 10 MOST POPULAR SEVEN DEADLY SINS CHARACTERS OF ALL TIME
Number Ten: Gowther, The Sin of Lust
Coming in at number ten among our list of the most popular Seven Deadly Sins characters of all time is Gowther, a doll brought to life!
Gowther is the Goat’s Sin of Lust and was the creation of a great wizard in the form and likeness of his old lover. He presents a rather emotionless personality and does things with no emotional attachments. Because of his inability to understand human emotions, he goes to great lengths to try to understand them more. He even accompanies Elizabeth out of duty. After receiving his memories back, he starts to show more personality and affection when interacting with the other Sins.

Number Nine: Estarossa, The Son of the Demon King
Next up, at number nine on our list of the most popular Seven Deadly Sins characters, is the former Archangel Mael, now made to believe himself to be the illegitimate son of the Demon King, Estarossa!
Mael was one of the Four Archangels of the Goddess Clan, but during the Holy War 3,000 years ago his and everyone’s memories were altered so that he assumed the identity of Estarossa, the Demon King’s illegitimate son. When his memories were returned to him, he felt remorse for killing so many innocents and was conflicted about joining the Sins in the Second Holy War

Number Eight: Merlin, The Sin of Gluttony
At number eight in our list of the most popular Seven Deadly Sins characters is the legendary mage, Merlin!
Merlin is recognized as the most powerful wizard in the land of Britannia and is also the Sin of Gluttony. She is a calm and passive person, preferring to avoid conflict even when facing off against tough opponents. This allows her to analyze situations during fights and come up with sound battle tactics to defeat even the toughest foes.
As a mage, she draws from both her magic and her years of experience. Ever curious, Merlin has halted her aging, wanting to spend her days learning about the world, and shows a natural curiosity for things she doesn’t know.

Number Seven: Diane, The Sin of Envy
At number seven on our list of the most popular Seven Deadly Sins characters of all time is Diane, the Sin of Envy!
A giant from Megadozer who has sympathy towards humans and is loyal to Meliodas and the kingdom of Liones, Diane is a formidable warrior who balances the aspects of both kindness and ferocity. She may be a gentle giant, but that doesn’t mean she can’t stomp you flat if you try to hurt her or her friends. She has a happy and bubbly personality but can be fierce if you incur her wrath.
Diane at SHJ:
Number Six: Zeldris, Son of the Demon King
Just missing our top five most popular Seven Deadly Sins characters of all time is the Son of the Demon King, Zeldris!
An Elite warrior of the Demon Clan, Zeldris is the leader and Piety of the Ten Commandments, he is also the younger brother of Melodias. When Melodias escapes the Demon Clan, it is Zeldris who is tasked with hunting him down. He has a calm and collected demeanor and was actually once a genuinely happy young man. He fell in love with Gelda the Vampire and acts in order to protect her from any harm. When his father ordered him to decimate the Vampire

Number Five: Elizabeth Liones, The Fallen Angel
Coming in next and starting our top five most popular Seven Deadly Sins characters of all time is none other than Elizabeth!
We all know Elizabeth as the lover of Meliodas, captain of the Sins, but she is MUCH more than just that.
Elizabeth is a very polite, grateful, and caring person who prefers to use a peaceful and diplomatic approach when approaching strangers and potential encounters. She is the current reincarnation of the Goddess Elizabeth and the lover of Meliodas. She was originally fragile, but after awakening her goddess powers, she becomes a powerful ally for the Seven Deadly Sins against their battles against the Ten Commandments.
It might not look like it, but Elizabeth has really strong powers. We don’t really see her use them because she does not want to fight or hurt anyone, thus she chooses the peaceful route most of the times. She focuses more on healing magic and her grace than on offensive magic. And seeing how she is the daughter of the Divine Deity, she is sure to have a large supply of magic on standby.
Elizabeth Liones at SHJ:
Number Four: Escanor
In the top fourth slot in our list of the most popular Seven Deadly Sins characters is the Strongest Holy Knight, Escanor!
The former Prince of Castellio, Escanor is famous for being the strongest Holy Knight thanks to his inherited ability called Sunshine, allowing him to become stronger as the day gets ahead, and becoming weaker as the sun dips into the horizon. His personality also changes as the day goes on, becoming boastful and domineering during the day, and becoming submissive and unfailingly polite at night.
He may be the Sin of Pride, but that doesn’t prevent him from acknowledging others who have great strength, such as when he admits the strength of both Melodias and Estarossa is formidable.
Escanor at SHJ:
Number Three: King, The Sin of Sloth
King is the protector of the Fairy Realm and the Fairy King’s Forest. He is the older brother of Elaine, and the husband of Diane, the future Giant Queen. Like Elaine, he is a peaceful soul, and really only resorts to violence when pushed to his limits. He has been known as a sensitive and caring member of the Sins.
He is also hard-working, which is ironic considering he is the Sin of Sloth. He is the most rational of the group and is completely surprised that the other Sins could lose their own sacred treasures.

Number One: Meliodas, The Sin of Wrath
Coming in at number one among the most popular Seven Deadly Sins characters of all time is the main protagonist and captain of the Seven Deadly Sins and the former commander of the Ten Commandments!
He was initially a villain in the early history of the series and was the likely candidate to be chosen to become the next Demon King. However, he fell in love with the goddess Elizabeth and defected to the side of the gods. His defection and subsequent killing of two Commandments during his escape started the Second Holy War.
He has a strong sense of justice and is known to be quite frank and extremely fearless. He doesn’t shy away from helping others when they need aid.
