'The Walking Dead' characters with the highest kill count

The Walking Dead is a post-apocalyptic television series that has been running for more than a decade. It follows a group of survivors trying to navigate through a world filled with flesh-eating zombies, otherwise known as walkers.

The show is known for its gruesome and violent scenes, and fans are always curious and will love to find out who has the highest kill count amongst all the characters in the history of The Walking Dead. Best of Netflix has got you covered!  

According to the research done by ‘Undead Walking’, there have been a total of 1808 deaths throughout the show onscreen. In this article, Best of Netflix has considered the kill count of all characters, including those who have left the show. No leaf is left unturned.

As the show progresses, it will be interesting to see how their narratives develop and how their kill counts may change. The five characters with the highest kill count in the history of the show are listed below.

The Walking Dead highest kill count in history

5. Michonne, 23

Michonne, played by Danai Gurira, is one of the show’s most capable and fierce characters. She is a skilled fighter and survivor who has been forced to make difficult decisions throughout the series. Her kill count is estimated to be around 23, and she has proven to be an important member of the team.

4. Negan,  45

Even with his recent transformation into something resembling an antihero, it seems inevitable that a murderer like Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) would be on the list of most Walking Dead kills. What’s surprising is that he’s not at the top of the list. Negan has 45 confirmed kills, the majority of which have been accomplished with his trademark barbed wire-wrapped baseball bat Lucille. 

Negan famously bashed Glenn and Abraham’s heads in and, more recently, decapitated Whisperer leader Alpha’s head and presented it to a grateful Carol. 

3. Carol Peletier, 52

Carol Peletier, played by Melissa McBride, has had one of the show’s most intriguing character arcs. She began as a meek and abused wife and has evolved into a ruthless survivor. Her kill count is estimated to be around 52, and she has proven to be an invaluable member of the team.

2. Rick Grimes, 54

Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln, is the main protagonist of the show and has been through the most harrowing experiences. Although he left around season 9, his contribution to the kill count history of the show has been remarkable. Rick’s kill count is estimated to be around 54, making him the show’s most lethal character. This makes sense, given Rick’s role as a survivor and leader for the majority of the show’s run. Rick’s journey has been long and painful, and his kill total reflects that.

1. Daryl Dixon, 72

One of the most well-liked characters on the show is Daryl Dixon, who Norman Reedus portrays. Daryl is indeed a skilled hunter and tracker who has proven to be an invaluable part of the team. His kill count is estimated to be around 72, and he has proven to be a force to be reckoned with throughout the show’s numerous conflicts.
