The MOST Annoying Character on LOST is

To me, it is Charley Pace.
This guy is intentionally irritating, hyper excitable almost to the point of hysteria at times. He lies almost as much as Ben Linus, and he gets angry, resentful, and talks loud when his lies fail to fool people.
Charlie shares a trait with far too many characters, he is overwhelmed by his out of control emotions.
Charlie's attachment to Claire is not all about Claire. He seems to need her to want him so that he feels better about himself. He makes a show his facade of responsibility, sometimes scolding Claire for waking the baby, pretending he is the better parent (though he isn't the parent and isn't responsible).

Charlie is a continual screw up, and a continual liar. When he is forced to admit that he lied, he immediately tells more lies, beginning with his pledge to tell the truth going forward. It's like he is negotiating, "you didn't believe that one, well what about this one? What? You won't believe that lie?!, Well I guess you're just too good for me then, is that it?"
Charlie is perpetually offended over imagined slights. And when people choose more qualified people to go on missions or perform various tasks, Charlie is offended, even though inside he knows he isn't as skilled or otherwise qualified. He acts hurt, and lies to himself and others by insisting he knows what he is doing. Then he screws up again, and makes more excuses.

But what makes him really irritating is his intentionally loud voice, and his passive aggressive way of making a nuisance of himself while pretending to be friendly.

Smoke monster. So full of himself. "OH I can disappear and reappear at will, plus make a weird noise to freak everyone out..."

Re: The MOST Annoying Character on LOST is

yeah, it was a toss up between Michael and Charlie.
Michael was constantly offended, paranoid, suspicious, and usually assumed the worst about people. Plus he murdered Ana Lucia and Libby. Even when he tried to redeem himself I found it hard to like him.
His voice was strident.

But Charlie's voice bugged me more than Michael's did.

Indeed, while at the same time displaying that it had a definite identity crisis.

"W-WHAT?" (his usual response to almost anything)

Re: The MOST Annoying Character on LOST is

Shannon was THE most annoying character. Totally self-centred and pathetically immature. I disliked her the moment she opened her mouth.

Charlie was one of my faves, but then I'm British so I can relate to him.

I agree Michael was annoying but he went along way to redeem himself.

Re: The MOST Annoying Character on LOST is

Yeah Shannon was a brat in the first several episodes, and in the flashbacks. But she developed into a better character as the show went on. I disliked her in the beginning, but I didn't find her voice annoying, even when she was crying. I hate the crying and screaming bits.
I couldn't stand hearing Claire cry, scream, and whine. I think Charlie, Claire, and Michael had the most strident and annoying voices.

And Charlie could not keep from screwing up. Even at his end, when he redeemed himself by giving his life to help save the group he screwed up. When those girls in the underwater station were questioning him, he kept giving them information which they passed along to Ben.
Charlie just had to tell them that Juliette had switched sides. The girls then called Ben to let him know, and when Ben asked who it was and the girls answered that he wouldn't tell them, Charlie yelled out "Charlie".
Then he tells them why he came down there, what he is going to do, and how he is going to do it.
He told them everything they wanted to know, kind of 'ha ha, betcha didn't know that'.
Charlie just couldn't help himself, he always found a way to screw things up.
Of course it worked out that he was able to destroy the station, and in his final moments he made the ultimate sacrifice to save Desmond. He had a good heart that way. He overcame many of his faults and was a loyal friend.
But he was so annoying for most of the show.

I can't argue with your choice. Michael believed the worst about people too often. He had his good points of course; they all did. But he was suspicious of almost everyone, quick to anger.
He assumed the worst, flew into anger, and expressed outrage, often over benign actions of others who were innocent.
But it was also his strident voice.

Anyone who continually, habitually expresses outrage, and accuses people in a loud, harsh voice gets on my nerves.

I intensely disliked him for his betrayal of the group, and the murders he committed, but it was his personality and his voice which annoyed me.

Michael was a close second to Charlie as the most annoying. It was almost a coin flip.

Perhaps I am splitting hairs, but I am not judging by the character of the person as much as by how hard it was for me to listen to them.
I hated Ben Linus, and Michael when he murdered Ana Lucia and Libby, and freed Ben.
I hated John Locke at other times too. (If I had been Boone, I would have beaten that bald head of his for bashing the back of my head, hog tying me, drugging me, leaving me in the jungle, and paternalistically telling me I would thank him for it.)
But Locke's voice and personality did not annoy me like Charlie's, Michael's, and Claire's.
