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!

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!

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.

Hermione deserved to be with a better person! Harry! She said herself "Harry, you are my best friend! " She never said that to ron. In DeAthly hallows part 1, she stayed with harry not ron. Ronald weasley is an ugly freak. He deserves to be with the ugliest person in harry potter.

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... :(

The only death in the books I could not get over. Their romance was a wonderful surprise and I was very happy that she loved Lupin and not Sirius because he too had always been my favorite of the marauders

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.

If you get past the blood issues they are very similar both smart stubborn and witty they have a relation ship that keeps you on your toes they fight a lot over stupid things but at the end of the day fit together like pieces of a puzzle.

No way! He is a villain

4James & 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.

I love them so much goodbye

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.

I actually laughed very hard that this ship is more popular than harry+ginny

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

6Harry 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.

Best Couple Ever! In the whole universe! They should be number 1!

7Harry 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!

In a head canon, it is said that Draco's biggest wish is to become friends with Harry Potter. His wife urges him to talk with Harry, but he simply says:"I don't deserve to be his friend after what I've done to him." CAN YOU NOT SHIP IT?!

I always wanted this

8Harry 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 should be 1! Ginny liked harry from the very beginning. Her ultimate crush was always Harry. They had many things in common such as a sense of humor, courage, determination, and bravery! Harry and Ginny forever!

This relationship is basically everything

9Neville 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!

I always ship them as a couple

10Bill 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

The Contenders

11Fred 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?

12Draco 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

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

13Arthur & Molly Weasley

Ron & Ginny's parents, were very kind to both Harry & Hermione, plus almost everyone else whom they knew.

Don't make me cry best relationship ever

They have the best relationshp ever! When I see there name together It makes me cry. They are so strong together

14Severus 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!

Best couple ever

15Fred Weasley & Hermione Granger

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.

I ship it more than the person who said they ship them because.. well.. I'm hermione

I think this ship is really cute and better than romione in my opinion (not that I don't like romione, I just prefer her with Fred)

The parents of Draco Malfoy. Narcissa's one redeeming trait is her love for her husband & their only child.

18Ron Weasley & Lavender Brown

Adorable lavender loved her won won and he loved her.

Ron should have ended up with lavender not hemione...Hermione deserved more!

19Luna Lovegood & Rolf Scamander

It's cool, but Luna and Neville are better.

20Draco Malfoy & Pansy Parkinson

Yes, Pansy is a VERY minor character, and very cruel. But it hinted in the fourth book that she likes unicorns, and she's probably a really sweet girl, but she covers it up. I think that Draco would be the sunshine in her life.

They would of been the best couple

I think their cruelty would work well together
