Most morning lark or night owl characters

As part of the Statistical "Which Character" Personality Quiz, this website has had volunteers rate 1,750 characters on a 100 point scale from "morning lark" to "night owl". This page lists the 25 characters whose average ratings were the farthest to either side. Because the scale is bipolar, it is reversable. For example, a rating of 1/100 for "morning lark" is the same as 100/100 for "night owl". See the documentation for more information about how these ratings were collected.
