Top Ten Most Annoying Harry Potter Characters


The Top Ten

1 Dolores Umbridge Dolores Umbridge

I have a burning passion of hate for this woman. She's my least favorite woman in the whole of cinema and literature I've come across. At least Voldemort's like "I'm evil" she doesn't have the decency to, saying "I'm good." Umbridge is just the kind of character that makes you want to rip your hair out. I'd burn her pink cardigan in my fire if I got my hands on it.

Despicable lady, yet on the same time I think she made a really unbelievable villain. Great job Mrs. Rowling, you did a good job on making her to be a really despicable character.

Everyone secretly wanted Umbridge dead more than Voldemort. She represents everything teenagers hate; being condescended to, adults that don't believe anything you say, or worse: dismiss it as you simply being too young to understand the "truth", adults that treat you like children but dole out punishment as if you're adults, teachers who are blatantly racist, etc. Her name isn't Umbridge for no reason, its's a play on the word Umbrage- an offense, annoyance, or displeasure.

She is a bitch that should have died when she was attacked by the centaurs in the 5th book.

2 Rita Skeeter

She's just a little dirtbag!

What does she think she is

I hate people who lie knowingly and just laugh about it. This is Rita. She is a bag and insults Harry for the attention of the common people. There are better ways, you PRAT

She's the worst

3 Draco Malfoy Draco Malfoy Draco Lucius Malfoy is a character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. He is a student in Harry Potter's year belonging in the Slytherin house.

I understand that Draco's annoying, but he had no choice. It was either impress Voldemort or, most likely, die. I do feel sympathy for Draco, but I understand why you think he's the most annoying person.

MY FATHER WILL HEAR ABOUT THIS! How many times does he say that in the books...

He makes me so angry. but then again he was pressured by his family

4 Cornelius Fudge

I hate that selfish git Fudge

He was a powerhungry ass. He reminds me of a terrible person I know

Fudge is a traitor to harry

In my country he'd be called a 'chutiya'.

5 Percy Weasley

All he talks about is the ministry! He abandoned his family because of the ministry! - AnnaOfArendelle332

Tsk tsk tsk, poor poor Percy, he is that person who corrects everything you say, and then makes the biggest mistake ever.

Snobbish, bossy that's percy he thinks he's brilliant because he's a prefect

Jeez this guy gets too much hate! Unlike most characters on this list he realised his faults and redeemed himself meaning that he's no longer a dickhead, come on!

6 Cho Chang

Cho chang is not annoying. Her boyfriend died and she was shocked. And I don't believe she is a person who lived a terrible life. She was a normal girl who isn't used to have terrible things happen to her, and she is shocked after her boyfriend died I don't see how she can act normal. I mean harry had a PTSD after the death of cedric, and he wasn't even close to him. Actually he was jealous of him. Yet his death affected him so much. He was severly scarred because of that.
And Cho, being close to cedric (i am sure she loved him) lost him and it shocked her because she is not used to have terrible things happen to her or the people she loves. And it affected her a lot.
You can't really expect everybody to show the same attitude when something bad happens. She wasn't also exactly very strong like harry or hermione. And I think she is a necassary character, because it shows us that not everybody can be strong and everybody has their own strength.

Cho is quite very annoying to me. She reminds me of a girl that dates one boy and flirts with another just for her enjoyment! Even though how innocent she looks and acts, Cho Chang is definitely one of my least favorite female characters! She even tries to talk about Cedric's death at her and Harry's date! First of all if my boyfriend/girlfriend would want to talk about his/her dead ex, I would be very upset because that just shows that the boyfriend/girlfriend doesn't like me. Harry has every right to reject to talk about his dead friend/girlfriend's ex. Sorry Cho but I am not an Fan! Cho heres some tips get over you ex's death ok you two didn't even date long, next don't talk about him to you new boyfriend, I mean what?!?! Last Cho stop crying ok he's dead and gone! Find another man!

I don't hate her, I just think she is annoying, overly sensitive & whiny. Cry and talk about her dead ex boyfriend cedric, to every conversation she has with Harry. Even 2 years later his death. I am pretty sure that Cho just use him as a backup cedric. Nothing felt real in their relationship. - Chatsa2

I find it disturbing that Cho and Lavender get more hate than Snape. Cho's boyfriend just DIED, so I felt kinda bad for her.

7 Ginny

She is at her most annoying when she is praised for being rude and aggressive. Her scathing, jealousy fueled remarks about Fleur made everyone laugh. Ron accidentally hit a girl because of his uncoordinated flailing for which Ginny put him down in front of everyone and humiliated him on the Quidditch pitch. She called Luna "Loony Lovegood" and later had the gall to defend Luna against others calling her the same without even an ounce of shame or acknowledgement for her past misbehaviour. Ginny is renowned for hexing students which annoy her with the Bat-Boogey Hex and instead of getting into trouble for it, she was invited into the Slug Club. She had no girl friends before she decided to "friend" Luna and Hermione, who were already Harry's friends at this point and even asked Hermione for advice on her crush Harry. Notably she felt it was safe to send Harry with Luna to the Ravenclaw tower, where before she had thrown a fit at Cho showing Harry the way. She told ...more

I'm sorry, but I don't like how she acts. I understand if you like her, but lemme state my opinion. Ginny was a Harry Potter fangirl, just like the others. I hate how she just dates a guy after another guy, it's like she's playing with their hearts and she doesn't even care. And she's also really stubborn and bossy. Honestly, I think Harry should have ended up with cho, but I guess Ginny was the one he had to marry. From being a shy, stalker, Harry-obsessed girl to a strong woman who gets whatever she wants? I'm sorry, but things do not work like that.

Why is Ginny the least annoying?
She's basically just a a fan girl who married her idol and is a complete Mary Sue. Since when do you go from a shy, crazed being to an all round tomboy.
Sorry but in the real world it doesn't work like that.

Uh please read me the description of Mary-sue. A Mary-sue wouldn't learn dark hexes. A Mary-sue wouldn't use those hexes. A Mary-sue wouldn't even think about disobeying anybody. A Mary-sue wouldn't get jealous. A Mary-sue wouldn't have trouble with anything. - Catsarah123

She’s just boring...cliche match for Harry...JKR really effed this one up. He should have been with Hermione. It would have been better if Ron had run away and never cane back to look for them...and met them later at Hogwarts where Hermione would have told him that she’s not into a man that runsaway from difficult situations. Ron is scared of her anyways...their relationship would not have lasted. Harry however has a great relationship with Hermione that grew gradually into admiration and mutual respect. Hemrione had no respect for Ron. But I digress. a fangirl Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise. Barf.

8 Moaning Myrtle Moaning Myrtle

I really like Moaning Myrtle. She funny and crazy (the way I like it). The only time I don't like her is when she is in the bathroom while Harry is taking a bath in the fourth movie.

I love Myrtle! Also, in the book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, it appears Ron writes "Harry loves Moaning Myrtle" which is crossed out.

Moaning Mrytle is so annoying when she screeches and moans about herself. But in Chamber of Secrets it's actually because of her that Harry could find the entrance to the Chamber and finish Tom Riddle A.K. A He-who-must-not-be-named. She looks so funny with those glasses and looks a bit like a long necked Turkey.

You shouldn't say crazy. You should say crayon

9 Professor Lockhart

I don't know what everyone is talking about. Although he was self-centered, he was awesome and his character was hilarious. He's the reason I love 'Chamber of Secrets' so much and if I was lucky enough to have a school offering Defense Against the Dark Arts, I would demand him as a teacher! Even if I didn't learn a thing

He thinks he is so cool because he has books but he didn't even do those things! The most annoying thing is that all the girls love him!

He should be higher on this list because he acts like he is amazing and it's really annoying

Umbridge was by far the worst character, but Lockhart was the most ANNOYING CHARACTER EVER

10 Dudley Dursley

I actually like Dudley. He's only spoiled because his retarded parents raised him wrong. He shook Harry's hand and isn't so bad if you think about it.

Rememebr he in the end shook harry's hand and this is how his parents raised him, yet he still had goodness in his heart

Such a fat kid. He could of helped Harry, pleaded his parents to treat him well. But noo, a selfish brat who takes everything for advantage. A fat kid. Eats four slices of pie. I wouldn't even enjoy the first slice. Poor Harry. Living with those horrible Muggles who starve Harry and treat him horribly

Don't blame Dudley. Blame his stupid father. - Goku02

The Contenders

11 Bellatrix Lestrange Bellatrix Lestrange A psychotic death eater who escaped from Azkaban, and is fiercely loyal to Voldemort. Murderer of many people such as Sirius Black, and also a sadist who drove the Longbottoms mad.

Bellatrix is an evil, twisted, disgusting character. I just want to kill her right now. And yet she's just not a villain you can hate.

I love her, but I still think she's annoying. I mean Neville's parents, Hermione, is torture all she is capable of?

I hate Bellatrix. I was so happy that Harry had some one to write to. Until she ruined everything.

This git killed Sirius. She is a sadistic woman. She killed Sirius, Tonks, Dobby and tortured Neville's parents to insanity. She deserves to No. 1

12 Colin Creevey

Colin... Ugh... I felt my head aching when I read Chamber of Secrets. I pictured a skinny blonde guy with rabbit like teeth and a camera following Harry like his tail wherever he went. Harry probably like it when Colin told him that he was a fan, but he soon turned out to be an annoying brat. It's like wherever he went, he was haunted by " kill" " You will be killed" like when he was haunted by Basilica in Parsetongue, but instead it was " Can I have a photo with you? " Or "Can you sign my photo? " Or worse " Can you give me a gum you chewed? "

Colin was a little bit obsessive, yes, but he still didn't deserve to die at the age of 16! Think about his family and brother would act!

What the hell? He is annoying but he is a simple kid who just figured out he is a wizard. Obviously. His father is a farmer, and I don't think that his life was interesting at all.

Ngl I actually hated him - pjo

13 Professor Trelawney

Trelawney: I take it, that you were born in October?

Harry: No, I was born in July.

Right fraud, m8

She reminds me a lot of my own stupid teacher. She talks and talks and it's all lies.

She is annoying but I believe she is so insecure

A teacher that lives of teaching false information. - Chatsa2

14 Dobby Dobby

Dobby a good elf sir! Why is Dobby on the annoying list sir! Did Dobby do something wrong, sir?

Dobby is a good elf I don't know why e speaks as if he just learned to that's the only thing that makes him a little annoying... Although he do reminds me of olaf from frozen

Dobby's great and all, but you have to admit sometimes he gets a bit annoying.

He smashed a fruit pudding and then harry potter got in trouble for something that dobby did. But dobby is a good elf. socks - Lunala

15 Vernon Dursley

How is Cho Chang #5 and Vernon Dursley is #13? He abused Harry for goodness sakes! I don't particularly like Cho, but she's harmless!

He didn't abuse Harry. He treated Harry horribly. But it wasn't abuse. The no food was an exaggeration, Harry constantly got grounded and was obviously not favored( understatement ) Vernon never hit or hurt him.

Okay I can understand why Dursley is on here but shouldn't he be on number four or maybe I don't know maybe two but why is he on fourteen?

Child abuser. I'm surprised the police and social workers didn't take Harry away already

16 Ron Weasley Ron Weasley Ronald Bilius "Ron" Weasley is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. His first appearance was in the first book of the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as the best friend of Harry Potter and Hermione Granger.

Come on! Ron isn't that bad. Sure he made some pretty bad mistakes, but so has Snape and Dumbledore. He was jealous of Harry, which made Ron a little insecure. He totally deserved Hermione. Harry takes his anger out on his friends (but it was only because he was very emotional at the time). What kind of woman would want that? Ron was also very funny. The only problem was that sometimes he didn't know when to stop. Also, he helped Harry retrieve Gryffindor's Sword, played a giant game of chess to get the Philosopher's Stone (it was more dangerous than it sounds), believed Harry when everyone thought he was lying, was brave enough to try to help Harry defeat the basilisk, and he was overshadowed by his brothers the entire time! Ron was always there for Harry (well...almost always), and isn't annoying! I'd honestly love to have him as a friend!

He is not annoying. I love him so much. I love how even though he's insecure a lot, he still sticks up to harry. sometimes he got his jealousy and insecurity in his ways, yes, but he still apologized and returned to himself. he is not perfect, this is why I love him

Ron saved Harry's life when Harry was falling out of the car when they were trying to catch up with the train! And wouldn't you be jealous of Harry!

He keeps on hating on Hermione and Snape, yes I know they can be mean at first but still. He had a bad influence on Harry...

17 Lavender Brown

She is really annoying in the movie, which I assume is because the film makers wanted to give the audience an extra reason to hate her, not just because she's messing with Ron+Hermione. But in the books she isn't very annoying. - JaneMoffat

Two words: poor hermione...

Oh poor hermione, actually poor Ron. He was dating and kissing, that... Thing...

Shes annoying for being with Ron all the time. She messed up his mind. I wonder how she would feel to hear that Ron and Hermione got marred. - PrincessFan

18 Peter Pettigrew

Lousy traitor, everything is your fault! Harry grew up without parents because of you. Sirius was stuck in azkaban for 12 years, blaming himself, because of you. Remus live alone for 12 years. Lily and James died because of you. I don't understand how anyone could feel any kind of sympathy for you, you never felt sorry, you only cared about your own neck.

Just a dick. He had best friends who were willing to die for him then betrays them to Voldemort and he's hides as a rat like why are you better as a rat than a human? You must stuck

One of the worst characters ever. How many died or suffered to save his worthless life?

19 James Potter

Sure, he made mistakes as a kid but he CHANGED unlike Snape; he learned what he was doing was wrong. Snape, however, did not. James also became and ILLEGAL animagus just so his friend would hurt himself during full moon. He also DIED for his wife and Harry. I don't know about you but in the end he was selfless. Snape destroyed himself instead of getting better by going into the dark arts his OWN choosing. That's why Lily broke off with him. Snape just couldn't get over it and change; doesn't mean that's James' fault.

Why? He was a child when he did all those stuff, he was an ass, yes, but he changed to a better person, who helped fight the Dark Lord. And how is he annoying in the firs place if all you saw were glimpses of what he was

He is the worst. He was cruel for no reason, despite the fact he always had everything he wanted. He ruined peoples lives just for fun. There is no excuse for his behaviour.

Yes, yes, yes! Although he "changed" later on, I will never forgive him for what he did to all those innocent people, including Snape.

20 Lucius Malfoy

Blackmails millions of people into doing what he wants, including whole ministry departments and poor Arthur Weasley. he is rich, and therefore gets whatever he wants, AND is a death eater. His son Draco inherited these traits from him.

King Foul, and in a way renamed his poor son Prince Brat. - emmathestranger

Foul man. Should be higher on the list.

I hate him - Lunala
