Favourite Couples From the Harry Potter Series

The Top TenXW

1Ron Weasley & Hermione Grainger

Romione for the win! This was honestly probably the second couple I ever shipped. I read the books when I was 7, so the first ship was Harry and Ginny after reading because. Anyway, this is probably my favorite ship out of all fandoms! It's beautiful how it ends up. I love that Ron makes fun of Hermione's efforts with SPEW, and house elves, but really he supports her, and when he says they need to protect the house elves, that's when she kisses him. I love the way that they went through the whole series arguing and disagreeing, while they really care about each other. Notice how often she turns to Ron before Harry. Ron and Hermione deserve this number one spot!

Again, it was pretty unique how the side-kick got together with the heroine of the series. Their constant fighting throughout the series showed they had deep feelings for one another.

Sure. Then I ship James / Snape, if you don't mind me saying so. Yes, Ron & Hermione has great literal value but I judge by my own feelings.

Ron and Hermione are an amazing couple and I love it in the books and films when they kiss it is so sweet! Ron says we need to save the house elves after all this time he loves Hermione and she loves him! So happy they finally got together in the finally!

The person who says Ron is an ugly freak is an ugly freak themselves. HE IS NOT!

2Remus Lupin & Nymphadora Tonks

Their relationship is not just cute but inspirational. What Lupin says is true - Tonks could get a young, fit, rich man that isn't shunned from society out of prejudice, only she doesn't. She wants him and doesn't give up until he sees why she loves him so much. In the Deathly Hallows, Tonks goes to protect Remus instead of staying home safely. When they die, they die together.

Ok just read the part at the end of the sixth book at the hospital wing after the death eater attack. I just kept on awing through out the entire time!

They are so cute together! She loves him despite the fact he is a werewolf, and face it-they're the dynamic duo... died right after having a child though... :(

My favorite ship! Tonks could get a young and fit man but she didn't. The only man she wanted was Lupin. She chose to fight because she couldn't stand not knowing if he is alive or not. When they died they died together (and I'll lie if I would say I didn't cried at this part).

3Draco Malfoy & Hermione Granger

I believe this couple really could have been something amazing! While I was a Ron/Hermione shipper from the start, I found their relationship grew a bit boring after a while and didn't make much sense for someone as strong minded and intelligent as Hermione. While a Harry/Hermione ship makes more sense canon wise, I found that the possible dynamic between Draco and Hermione would have introduced such an incredible aspect to the story, with Draco getting some much need character development and Hermione breaking out of her typical, and somewhat overused, involvement with Harry and Ron. It would have also brought some much needed attention to a house that I felt was over-portrayed as being nothing but single-minded and evil throughout the ENTIRE series.

Although this couple may not work in the canon version of the series for obvious reasons, if written right, the dynamic relationship between these two characters could have been something incredible. The way Draco would have had to overcome what he had been brought up to believe to fall for a girl that represented everything his family, and many within the Slytherin house, despised would have left room for some very interesting and profound character development. Character development that I personally felt was a bit lacking throughout the series, especially the end.

Look at the reasons why this couple shouldn't be together. If you have read the last book, you would know that Astoria Greengrass and Malfoy were truly in love and even had a kid together. Also, look at the third book. Hermione was teased-no, bullied- by Draco and she punched him. Why did she punch him? Cause he said she was a Mudblood. Who stood up for her? Ron and Harry. And those are just the major reasons.

Why the hell is this a thing? Why would Hermione date someone against her own kind? Why would Draco date someone so closely tied with his nemesis? They HATE each other! Or are you too obnoxious to realize that?

4Harry Potter & Draco Malfoy

I believe that Harry should have gotten with Malfoy instead of Ginny. It seems like Ginny could be pushy at times when Harry needed sympathy but she was there when he needed a friend to get him on his back again. Who can do both? Draco Malfoy. Harry needs a challenge, so basically Malfoy. They could bring out the best in each other.

This shipping is the absolute best! like seriously, harry spent most of sixth year after draco, and the two were always around and talking about each other all throughout the books, and in the end, like harry rescues draco in the come and go room and draco doesn't identify harry when he is presented in the malfoy manor and harry said that draco's wand was FRIENDLY with him...come on!

Harry was obsessed with Draco for the longest time, and we all know that Draco talked about how 'awful Potter' was. And the fact that they are total oposites make it even more interesting. All the other ships with Harry or Draco are boring in my opinion.

I love this ship! - RisingMoon

5Sirius Black & Remus Lupin

This ship is probably the best ship in all the series. They are literally opposites, that's why they're so perfect for each other. Remus Lupin brings out the good in Sirius Black and vice versa. He was there for him when Sirius's parents abused him and Sirius accepted that Remus was a werewolf. They bring out the best in each other which is why they're so perfect for each other.

I adore this ship! These two characters bring out the best in one another and are just so accepting. I think they would be perfect together and I can't imagine any reason why they wouldn't be together.

Oh my lord! That's like saying Harry and Ron were in love.

When Harry Potter parents died couldn't Sirius / Remus raise baby Harry together?

Sirius was in Azkaban and Remus couldn't because he was a werewolf. - RisingMoon

6James & Lilly Potter

Lily and James really loved each other. They're seriously perfect for each other. James was really arrogant and immature as a teenager, but he really grew up and changed for Lily. He sacrificed so much for her and Harry, and he really became one of the noblest characters in the series. He completed Lily, and she completed him.

As for Snape, yes, he did do the right thing at the end, and he loved her too. But he shouldn't have turned on Lily in his fifth year. He seriously hurt her, and he joined a group that was bent on destroying people like her. That's not how people should treat their best friends. And before her death, he was fine with Voldemort killing James and Harry if Lily got to survive. At that point, he didn't care about who Lily loved. He only cared about the idea of him being together with her. Ultimately, he did protect Harry and fix his mistakes, but James is just a better person for Lily.

James died in hopes that Lily and Harry would live. Snape didn't care about Harry or James, he just wanted Lily. James may have been a little bit silly and arrogant as a teenager, but he grew up to be a brave young man who died protecting his loving family. Lily obviously didn't just marry him because he made her, she's strong and independent enough to make her own choice, and her choice was to marry James. Lily loved James and James loved Lily. They loved Harry and Harry loved them back.

Harry's parents died while protecting him from Voldemort. While James may have started out as a jerk in high school, his true colours eventually came through, thus causing Lilly to fall in love with him.

Never really liked this ship that much. We only know them from Snape's memories and judging by them it makes no sense that they got together. - RisingMoon

7Harry Potter & Hermione Granger

Now with this ship, I can totally relate to.

I was really attentive at school and I loved books. Over the years, I grew a very close friendship with a boy. He and I started out as normal friends, but then we started to grow closer until he was probably my best friend.

I always felt like we were brother and sister in a way. And then things got a little weird when my childhood friend started to have a crush on him.

I had never seen this guy as well, a love object. They ended up together and I was really happy for them.

As you can see, this is starting to sound a bit like the Harry Potter series. Both Hermione and I were quite similar as people, (though perhaps I was a bit less bossy! ) And the friendship she and Harry had reminded me quite a lot of the friendship I had with this guy.

Reading the series as I grew up was brilliant.

But then, the next chapter of our friendships reflected more of the movies.

My two friends were still going ...more

I don't really know.

I, like most other people, always thought that Harry/Hermione would happen at first, not fully because of their characters, but because of that whole "Hero ends up with Heroione" thing.

But as I read on, I realised JK Rowling had other intentions.

By the end of the series, I was relatively happy about how everything had turned out.

Ron and Hermione seemed to be happy together in both the books and the movies, and the pairing itself was quite cute.

Harry and Ginny seemed very emotional and powerful together, and I liked how their characters had moulded together in the books. I was disappointed however with Ginny's portrayal in the movies. I do not criticise Bonnie Wright, but more the script writers themselves. I understand that they had a lot to put in the movie, and Harry's love life should certainly be in the background a bit. But they could at least do book Ginny the honour of putting a bit of flair into the movie ...more

Hi guys, something I want to share.
I have to apologise to the people who ship Harry and Hermione. You see, I worked out something just now. So a few months ago, I was reading a book, and there were these two people, and I thought that they should be together.

They never were and no one seemed to understand that I thought these two people should be together.

After a few weeks I suddenly realised that how I was feeling was exactly how Harmony shippers feel! They thought Harry and Hermione were perfect for each other. So, sorry guys, because now I finally understand what you went through.

I seriously can't picture these two together. I'm glad for once the hero doesn't get the main girl like in every story even though I don't really like Ginny but I can only see Hermione with Ron or Draco.

8Neville Longbottom & Luna Lovegood

Even though this couple was not canon in the books, I always looked forward to them being together whilst reading them. I hadn't seen any of the movies, yet I still liked the idea of the two weirdos falling in love. They are a very cute couple, and I wish they would have gotten married.

I always thought they liked each other.

The best couple in the world! (Falls over laughing) I really loved the idea of them and it was a little weird for them to be together, but I love the little idea of weirdos together!

They balance each other perfectly!

9Harry Potter & Ginny Weasley

I actually wrote an eight-page paper for a college English course defending my OTP. My central argument was that she is probably the sturdiest character in the entire series. True, she hasn't gone through half as much as Harry, but she has seen her fair share of horrors, and in spite of this, she always reacts calmly to whatever life throws at her. Possessed by Lord Voldemort? Barely sheds a tear. Fights alongside her crush? Holds her own, even after breaking her ankle. Endures a year of continuing torture? Openly rebels at every opportunity, culminating in the battle of the century, in which she fights with courage and heart and doesn't give up despite having just lost her brother and (presumably) the love of her life. It goes without saying that Harry would most likely develop severe Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and strong, sturdy and optimistic Ginny Weasley is just the person he needs.

They match so well in the book. In the middle of the 6th book, I suddenly found myself rooting for them. They share the same sense of humour, their love for each other is amazing and Ginny overall understood him the most, be it when he is pissed off and angry or sad. She literally said "suck it up already, you aren't the only one who suffers". She understands him perfectly, which isn't the case in other ships. I don't think there could be a better woman for Harry than Ginny. It's just sad how poorley they were how screwed up they were in the movies. #RIPBOOKGINNY

They are simply perfect for each other. I mean she totally gets what Harry is going through but doesn't let him stay depressed and doesn't like his terrible attitude towards people and calls him out on it but still stays beside him and supports him. She did have a batgirl crush but she grew up. Plus she's amazing at quidditch like Harry and so their kids would have to be like pros

Ginny crushed on Harry just cause he was the boy who lived. When she first meets him she seems a bit obsessed with him just because she read about him in a book or whatever. If Neville were the boy who lived, she probably would've crushed on him instead. - RisingMoon

10Fred Weasley & Angelina Johnson

To be honest, I'm not a big fan of Angelina with either twin, but then I'm just not a big fan of the way JK writes romance.
Yeah. Its bad and beyond creepy. Worse, people support it.
I didn't even know which twin Angelina was with. Fred went with Angelina to the ball, but I don't remember them being officially together. Am I just unobservant or was the mention too obscure and too buried under other stuff?

The Contenders

11Bill Weasley & Fleur Delacour

I love how Fleur stands by Bill at the end of the Half Blood Prince even though a lot of the other characters thought she was shallow and only liked Bill for his looks. They are a background couple in the series but my personal favorite.

I love how even though Fleur is seemed to be this really shallow person who seems to only care about looks, and beauty, shows everyone that she really has a heart of gold and will love Bill no matter what.

Fleur initially came to Hogwarts, from Beauxbatons Academy in France, to compete for the Triwizard Tournament. When her sister was being used as the prize during the second task of the tournament, she fails during the task, thus leaving it to Harry to rescue her little sister. Fleur is extremely grateful to Harry. Fleur meets Ron & Ginny's brother Bill at Gringotts, & the 2 fall in love & get married. They give their place as refuge to the trio during their hunt for the Deathly Hallows, especially after Hermione was attacked by Bellatrix at the Malfoys' lair.

They had a great wedding

12Fred Weasley & Hermione Granger

I think he would make her fun side come out more and she would mellow him out. I really think they should've had a shot at it instead of Ron and Hermione

They are much more compatible than Hermione and Ron. - RisingMoon

I ship Hermione with a few people, but I do love this particular ship. I always thought Hermione´┐Ż - Fred would have worked out well in the books.

You are stupid

13Draco Malfoy & Astoria Greengrass

No, they are not a great couple (in the book or movie) because we didn't even see them get together or any before they had a kid

In the Cursed Child you see Draco actually care about Astoria and his son Scorpius - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

What a fool J.K. rowling is for not giving so much information about Astoria Green-grass!

15Severus Snape & Lily Evans

Wish he could have had her for a little while. He really loves her and they where always friends. But she really belonged with James or there would be no Harry Potter. So sad in the end. He really died loving her. If only, for even a day, it could have happened

The literary quality Lily and Snape's tragic romance is strong enough to surpass Romeo and Juliet's. I can't think about their relationship for more than a minute without crying.

They should end up together! Snape actually sacrificed his life for her and Harry after lily's death. snape is the most obsessive and ambitious lover. This couple should be even in the top then!

I've always thought of James as an arrogant prat who doesn't deserve Lily. I can see Lily and Snape getting together way better than Lily and James. Another thing, if Harry weren't alive, Neville would defeat Voldemort.

I love them as a couple. I liked how Remus never encouraged bullying Snape and went out of his way to act nice to him even though Snape hated him. - RisingMoon
