Face=HBK by far.
Heel=HHH by far.

re: Better Heel & Face: HBK or HHH?

HBK is the better face and Triple H is the better heel.

Although I do think that both men are better heel characters.

Shawn was fine as a babyface character. The fans were always into him. As for Triple H aside from his time as the leader of DX I don't really recall a lot of standout moments when he was a babyface. It seems like the majority of his memorable moments happened while a heel.

re: Better Heel & Face: HBK or HHH?

HBK was the better face. Truth be told neither was amazing as a face - but HBK had his run with the title in the 90s as a top face and he did well enough. He also did well as a face later in his career - even though it was a top of card face, not necessarily a champion.
In contrast - even when HHH is a face he's kind of a dick lol. I think some of his DX stuff (after HBK left) was as a face and he did good - but it's blurred lines between face/heel.

For heel - I personally absolutely loved HBK's initial DX run as a heel. It's some of my favorite moments ever in wrestling history, so I want to give him the nod for this here.
HHH is probably objectively better - he's had more success, and in terms of being a true heel who garners proper heat and is a legitimate top wrestler - he's had way more success. I do prefer HBK heel though, so i'll give him the nod.

HBK for face, Trips for heel. Both guys were better as heels though.

I was about to say the same thing. Also the better tweener. Haitch was decent bag carrier though.

HBK is the superior face, HHH the better heel (albeit only slightly.)

HHH is so much better as a heel (To be honest, I really don't like Trips as a face at all), and HBK is the better face. No question about it.
