Here’s our list of the top 5 moments for Michonne on The Walking Dead show! Read ‘em and let us know if you agree or if anything is missing:
5. Bye Bye Governor
Michonne has a lot of good reasons to hate the Governor, so when it’s her katana that finally ends his life we couldn’t help but give a little cheer. That moment feels like swift justice.
4. Crazy Cheese
Okay, it’s not really about the cheese, it’s about seeing a lighter side of Michonne. Her blossoming relationship with Carl proves that even after so much isolation (both before finding Andrea and after the prison falls) Michonne is a complex character who can still find joy and hope in this apocalyptic world.
3. Enter Michonne
After saving Andrea, a hooded figure stands over her, armed with a sword and two walkers leashed on chains. Michonne’s mysterious introduction at the end of Season 2 is one of the moments from The Walking Dead that is impossible to forget.
2. No Rest for the Katana
Michonne wants to believe in Alexandria and the return to normal life that it promises, so she disarms and mounts her katana on the wall. However, after Pete’s disastrous rampage, Michonne chooses at the last second to sheath it instead. This is the moment when we see her come to terms with what she’s been struggling with all season. The world isn’t safe enough yet to put away her weapon, and so Michonne and her katana are reunited.
1. Don’t cry
This moment slays me. In the prison, Beth passes off Baby Judith to Michonne, who looks incredibly uncomfortable. At first the beat is kind of funny—Michonne is being so awkward!—but as she holds Judith she begins to sob. This moment is Michonne at her most vulnerable, giving us a rare glimpse into her past.

Completely agree with this list
This list is spot on! Michonne is my personal favorite!
Michonne Is The Shit!!
Michonne: The badass ninja turned pirate girl!
I love Michonne’s speech at the end of Season 5 when she’s telling Rick that she’s with him, no matter what. That & when she first showed up at the prison gate, under the guise of a stinky walker & having the basket of formula in hand… those 2 moments in addition to those above, will always stand out to me. Oh, and I love when she stated that Daryl had already given her fleas.
Agree the list is spot on, also BASTET is rite the speech to Rick was a great, powerful and real moment.. also when she talks about letting people into the group.. “They gave a crazy lady with a sword a chance” Michonne is such a awesome character and Danai Gurira is an amazing actress who fits the role so well.. Oct cannot come quick enough!!!!
My favs were the paper mache cat and recently that scene where sasha was gettin headshots and michonne kept having flashbacks of choppin off heads, it was super sick
If you wanna get technical Lilly is the one that really put the governor down for good.
I mean sure you can argue if she didn’t show up when she did, he would have died from the wounds Michonne inflicted, but she did show and put the final bullet in him.
Great list. Michonne at the fence with the formula was most definitely the realist moment. Had she not been there Judith could’ve possibly died and maggie and Glenn killed. She saved lives using that information going to that prison. I love Michonne and Danai Gurira is playing her role beautifully.
