Top Ten Female Harry Potter Characters


The Top Ten

1 Hermione Granger Hermione Granger

Hermione Granger is a strong, smart, beautiful, women role model in Harry Potter. Growing up, I always wanted to be like Hermione! She is awesome! I love her.

Hermione Granger is one of the best people in the history of magic! She is a smart kid and never does something weird or doesn't do things that she knows she's gonna get in trouble for. She doesn't argue(Since she is my FAVORITE character I should probably stop arguing with my parents)

Hermione is just plain AMAZING! Smart, hardworking, helpful, beautiful, loyal, brave, clever, independent, sharp-tongued, a leader, confident, committed, control, thoughtfulness, compassionate, logical, focused, strong-willed, mature, bossy, narrow-minded, a bit blunt, argumentative, and just wonderful. And Emma Watson is like, the GAME GIRL

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Hermione is super smart, compassionate, loyal, and independent. I like that she changes so much in the series. From a bossy, know-it-all, beaver-teethed, bushy-haired girl too a beautiful, amazing woman. Hermione does not let Harry and Ron tell her what to do.. and she makes amazing quotes. Like the one about friendship and bravery. Hermione is not flawless flirty girl. She has flaws, which make her interesting. And tons of times she saves Harry. Without her, Voldemort would still be in power cause harry would be dead, and Buckbeak would have died. I wish I was just like her. And Hermione should have been Harry's wife. She suits him better than the idiot Ron. Ginny is not as good as Hermione. Hermione deserves Harry.

2 Luna Lovegood Luna Lovegood Luna Lovegood was a witch, the only child and daughter of Xenophilius and Pandora Lovegood. Her mother accidentally died while experimenting with spells when Luna was nine and Luna was raised by her father, editor of the magazine The Quibbler, in a rook-like house near the village of Ottery St Catchpole more.

Luna Lovegood makes me feel like I am not the only weirdo out there. In school, I am considered the weird one out of my group of friends. That sometimes makes me feel shameful and down, because my friends always say that being weird is not good. But when I picked up Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and got to where Luna was, I quickly fell in love with this weird and dreamy girl. She related so much to me, which meant so much because no one else seemed quite weird. I quickly switched to Luna, and she became my favorite character. Hermione was no longer my favorite character. Evanna Lynch, in my humble opinion, is the best Harry Potter actress. Even more than Emma Watson. And as the story went on, Luna became much more than a weird and dreamy side character. She was kind, smart, creative, and understanding. Her kindness reflected the most on me. Remember how sweet and friendly she was to Harry, Ron, and Hermione even if they insulted her? That is just amazing. I was surprised ...more

She is my favourite harry potter character. I think Luna should be at the top because she is really kind, nice and also saved Hogwarts life at the last movie.

Why is she not the first. Hermione cried all the time I mean she was confident but Luna was confident and didn't care what anyone said

I think Luna is really kind and inspiring. A little quirky and eccentric but she has a kind soul when she was polite to Dobby by calling him sir.
Hermione can be a little rude sometimes when she insulted Luna about the Quibbler,her radish earrings etc. Luna knows what people say isn't true.She believes in herself, and she has sometimes awesome advice even if she is constantly teased and called Loony Lovegood, she dosn't care. Luna in my opinion is the best out of all harry potter characters. So please vote for her So she can top off Hermione.

3 Ginevra Weasley

Haters leave Ginny alone.
Ginny is a tomboy.
The fifth film should've been Ginny becomes herself like the fifth book not meet Luna Lovegood.
Fangirl what? She used to hide from Harry or couldn't even talk to him properly.
She was like everyone else in the first book at the school feast in the first year everyone at the Gryffindor table that had been sorted shouted "We've got Potter! " and then after the feast and when Harry was starting his lessons people wanted to see him.
Her brothers made jokes because "Oooh our little sister likes famous Potter! " She wants his autograph and will start a fan club which are just jokes. She didn't ask for his autograph or start a fan club.
She couldn't wait on and on.
Harry's liking for Ginny didn't come out of the blue in the second book it was like a fairytale, the sword to slay the monster. Harry watched Ginny chase the train until it went around the corner. Harry gave Ginny his free Lockhart books, Ginny looked like a cat ...more

I HATE HER MORE THAN LIFE COULD TELL. First book she was pretty much non-existant, second book she's a gross fangirl who's only weakling purpose is to be caught by Tom Riddle (Stop saying she's strong to go through this. Ginny was stupid enough to keep writing in the diary; even Tom Riddle said so). Third book she barely occurs and STILL is a stupid fangirl, never serving a true purpose, fourth book, barely happens, and in fifth book she turns into "popular, cool girl" but gets rude (Ron and Demelza and was the first one to ever call Luna Loony, then acts like a hypocrite about it), but she stills serves absolutely NO purpose in the books. Sixth book she magically gets all smart and amazing at Quidditch, then suddenly becomes awkward (SHE JUST RAN UP TO HARRY AND STARTS KISSING HIM), and is a huge Mary Sue. Seventh book: No purpose, just a sidekick to Luna and Neville who pretty much do all the amazing stuff. SO MURDER GINEVRA. Nymphadora Tonks should be here, Ginny... AT THE END.

Yeah, really. She is fantastic. At least better than cho. Huh! Far better than her. And she is perfect for harry.

Ginny is my queen, my legend.

4 Nymphadora Tonks

I love Tonks because she is a clever woman and she sure stood up to Remus, telling him that she didn't care if he was a werewolf or not, because she loved him. I'm so sad she's dead. WHY JK ROWLING, WHY?! - HarryPotterForeveR

I cried when she passed away. Poor Teddy.


She is a funny feisty and vivacious down to earth girl.If o was a metamorphmagus I would make myself look like a Verla but rinks remained grounded

5 Minerva McGonagall Minerva McGonagall

Such a strong female character

Sassy awesome woman

Oooh snap she's sassy! if she wasn't at hogwarts, I don't know what the golden trio could have done... and the war would have been boring if she wasn't there! remember this line from Deathly Hallows Part 2? "I've always wanted to use that spell! " - Minerva McGonagall - HarryPotterForeveR

I like her she was a better Professer then Snape she was fair and she's very reasonable too and did not hold a grudge against a student just because of the parents she stood up to Snape in deathly hallows part 2 she protected Harry when Barty crouch tried to kill him and she also defended Hogwarts in the final film she is a true hero

6 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.

How come she's at #6? She should've been in the top #3 at least, I'd rank her #1 though. She's the strongest female character in Harry Potter. She knows how to fight, is exceedingly courageous and doesn't shy away from things most women would. She's the epitome of feminism and I honestly don't understand how that Granger girl got the top spot. Aside from Bella's courage, she's extremely loyal to the Dark Lord, and strongly devoted. She also is one of the best Death Eaters in every way possible, outperforming the men. If I were to state every single good quality of hers, I'd go on for hours, so I'm just going to end it here. At the end, I'd like to say that Bellatrix Lestrange is a role model for all females.

I don't like her she tortured Neville's parents and was the reason Neville didn't get to be with his parents she killed Sirius for no reason at all and gloated bout it in Harry's face she killed Tonks she killed Dobby with her stupid knife she tried to torture Hermione ans she killed Ginny and if Bellatrix hadn't missed Ginny would have been dead by now Molly got mad and took Bellatrix on in a duel Molly then killed her I was happy Sirius Tonks Dobby and Neville's parents were finally avenged

She is very cool! I like her when she is loyal to the dark lord.

Bella sucks so muuuchh!

7 Cho Chang

I wish Cho had a Better role in the series J.K Rowling really didn't have to bury this girl's credibility like that in The Deathly Hallows - kmanigo07

Cho is awesome and nice and even when Marietta betrayed the DA, she still forgave her, knowing that she was just trying to be a good person. and Umbridge is intimidating so... if I was gonna be tortured to death (by her stupid little cough, of course) I don't know... I might give in... just maybe... nah not really. (well that's just the Slytherin in me eh? ) - HarryPotterForeveR

So kind and smart girl

Please stop being mean about Cho. She can't help crying. I bet YOU would cry if your boyfriend died. Cho is actually really kind

Also, Cho only cried about three or four, times and Hermione cried about twenty-two times, and Cho cried because her boyfriend died and then Harry was a jerk about it, and Hermione cried about stupid things like "Ron's dating Lavender." Cho is also super nice, and smart and a great Quidditch player. - LunaLovegood2

8 Fleur Delacour Fleur Delacour

Her name is a flower and its true... beautiful... not only that, she is powerful and remember how she told Mrs Weasley that she would always love Bill, even if he wasn't handsome anymore, and how "all these scars show my husband is brave! "
yeah, we all love her deep down - HarryPotterForeveR

No she is number 1 she is way better than Hermione beside she is older
than her and lot more strength than her.

She showed the true colours of love when she said that she didn't love Bill just because he was handsome

She has good looks+her magic in her wand is a hair of hair grandma

9 Molly Weasley Molly Weasley

Well if it wasn't Molly, Harry wouldn't find his way to Platform nine and three quarters. Ever.

Molly is awesome! I love how she killed Bellatrix!

Molly is so good! Without her the amazing series wouldn't be there! She told harry where platform nine three quatres was

She didn't just kill bellatrix she destroyed her!

10 Ginny Weasley Ginny Weasley


She should be higher up. she's awesome though, and everyone loves her sassy POWAR! - HarryPotterForeveR

NO WAY! I think she should be #2!

Um why she on twice she was number 3 not number 11

The Contenders

11 Narcissa Malfoy

1. she saved harry
2. she loved her son so DAMN much
3. she's a sassy boss queen - HarryPotterForeveR

Narcissa deserves to be #1. She wasn't afraid to literally just LIE to Voldemort to save her son, and besides what's so good about Hermione?

YASS! She is such an underrated character and you can tell that she genuinely still cares for both her sisters

Her and Luna are my favorites! - LunaLovegood2

12 Dolores Umbridge Dolores Umbridge

Hope she dies slowly in pain... while dangling off a cliff above shark infested water with the most venomous snakes surrounding her and a killer standing just behind her - HarryPotterForeveR

I hope she dies painfully.

She’s should be in jail of what she done she was trying to torture Harry with crucio curse a teacher never do this to a student in school she is evil beyond I hate her

Umbridge can go jump off a cliff

13 Lavender Brown

Read the look at her movie character.
She was just a giggling girly girl with her best friend Parvati who was also a giggling girly girl.
Not Half Blood Prince - I wanna snog won won.

Meh. I don't have a problem with her - HarryPotterForeveR

Actually, it wasn't lavender that gave harry a love potion it was Remelda Vain, and that got put down a few minutes later by slughorn. Lavender had a crush on ron, and when it was his first quidditch game, and they won because of him ( and harry ) they had a big celebration in the dormitories. And when he got put down by his brothers, lavender came over and kissed him. Remember now?

She makes me vomit!

14 Sybill Trelawney

She's awesome expecially when she dropped crystal balls on the death eaters in the war lol - HarryPotterForeveR

The only thing I remember about Trelawney is that she 'ALWAYS' predicts Harry's death and that in the second wizarding war she dropped her entire collection of crystal balls on the Death Eaters.

do you get my reffernce of 'ALWAYS'... Lol

She is so cool. I love psychic characters in movies and books so much!

Sybill Trelawney is so dumb, I was so happy when Umbridge almost sacked her.

15 Lily (Evans) Potter

Lily Evans Potter has a right to be here. Lily is much more than a side, one-second, stupid, character. She was a wonderful mother, and an amazing female character. Lily's strong, kind, brave, beautiful, smart, and heroic. Lily had a rude sister, who was quite jealous of her, but she was able to be strong and not hurt Petunia's feelings. She sacrificed herself for her son so Voldemort would not kill him. Seriously, without Lily, the Harry Potter series would not exist. And Lily made friends with poor Snape, who got terribly bullied by a terrible man. She was very kind to Snape and stood up to him. she only turned away from him because he called her something rude in a fit of anger. Understandable. And Lily is just like a lily... beautiful, and sweet. And if you think about it, she saved Harry twice. once with her amazing sacrifice, and here's the other one: Snape saved Harry, once. But to save Harry, Snape had to be on Harry's side. And to be on Harry's side he had to be on ...more

Most people don't really think about her only because there wasn't much written about her. However, she truly is an amazing witch. During the dark times of the height of Voldemort, she married and had a child during this chaotic time which is something that not everyone can do. She also lived most of her childhood with a sister that downright loathes her even when they were adults. And when she turned against Snape, the only friend she had after her sister turned against her, that was something that was exceptionally hard to do. Snape was the only friend she had that she could talk to during that difficult time with her sister. Turning back against this old friend required bravery. (It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to our friends. - Dumbledore)

Lily's a hypocrite and she's pretty flawless other than that, so pretty boring... that "Tuney" stuff is so damn stupid and she hated James Potter and then she started loving him? what? Narcissa is the best mother and Molly is so much better than Lily as well. Anyways we only see Lily a few times - LunaLovegood2

She protects Harry, she dies for him

I wish she didn't have to be hidden she could at least be allowed to go out and make some friends - HarryPotterForeveR

So sad! You died! You are a dumbledore! So strong!

We didn't really hear her backstory that much! She looks like an awesome character. She coulda at least be involved more!

Why her why nature why are you on the bad side

17 Olympe Maxime

She's tall. I wish I was as tall as her. but I'm short. - HarryPotterForeveR

Magrid ~ Hagrid and Maxime.
I love her accent and when she says, "Ze 'orses only drink single-malt whiskey," I laughed so damn hard. - WinterSky

She and Hagrid are meant to be together

So true, I reckon French is the most fashionable language.

18 Rita Skeeter

Well... umbrage is worse than her - HarryPotterForeveR

WHY is SHE on here she should be at the very bottom

Yes, Skeeter, as in "mosquito". Skeeter can go jump off a cliff and crash in to a rock spike. A liar and a fraud

I can not believe it #14! Go drown yourself Skeeter.

I definitely think Angelina should've been above some of them. She was so good at Quidditch.

Great at Quidditch!

Head of Hufflepuff and Herbology Professor.

23 Padma Patil

Yule ball with harry!

Harry went to the Yule ball with her twin sister Parvati. Padma was Rons date

24 Rose Weasley

Smart and awesome

25 Winky


She is funny


26 Rowena Ravenclaw


I'm a ravenclaw

Best person

27 Lily Luna Potter

YAS to me she is the best besides Albus and James of the next generation kids! She deserves top ten!

No. Just no. We hardly even get to know any of the characters kids, sure we know this is one of Harry's kids, but do I care about characters we hardly see until the end? Nope. Can we stop putting the characters kids (except for Fred, George and Angelina had a wise choice choosing the name Fred).

You do get to see their personality in the cursed child.WRECKED!

28 Lily Evans

Should be in Top Ten!

29 Astoria Greengrass

I don't hate her but I don't love her either.. - HarryPotterForeveR

I hate her she is so frail and ugly and eventually died

30 Gabrielle Delacour

Gabrielle is so brave she was the youngest of the beauxbatons and was brave in the 2nd task

31 Pansy Parkinson

She is very sexy with draco learn how to pole dance girl

32 Petunia Dursley

Why the hell is she on here? - HarryPotterForeveR

33 Augusta Longbottom

She loved Neville though didn't show it.A very good grandma indeed!

34 Alice Longbottom

This is the reason why I hate bellatix

35 Sybill Trelawney

Perhaps more important to the plot in the books (the whole prophecy thing in book 5), this character is my favourite because of her over the top persona and her representation of a psychic that looks just like one in real life. I think this character looks exactly like I imagined her in the books.

36 Helga Hufflepuff

She helped make hogwarts so she deseves to in the top 3 at least! - HarryPotterForeveR

37 Bathilda Bagshot
38 Amelia Bones

Very nice and friendly

Cho Chang

Um, this person let Harry off at his hearing. Hello? Amelia Bones? Anyone? Well, anyway, she is fair and kind and cool and she believed Harry when he said there was dementors and so she prevented him from getting expelled. So, she should be higher.🙃

39 Hannah Abbott

She's so smart helping harry with all his home work!

40 Natalie McDonald

I only just found out the backstory for this character. Judging by the letter she sent to J.K Rowling, she was very brave and curious. I love this personality for a character, so I think if she was a main character, I would like her.

I love Natalie for the backstory of this character.
It started when a young girl, Natalie McDonald, emailed JK Rowling what happens in all the future books, for she was in the hospital and feared she wouldn't have enough time to live to finish the series.
The author replied with a summary of what happens in the future installment of the series.
JK Rowling also went to her country for a book signing, after that she visited the McDonald family, later finding out Natalie died a few days after the email.
As tribute to the dead fan of Harry Potter, she was added as a first year in one of the books.

41 Penelope Clearwater
42 Merula Snyde

Person in the video game

Who is that?

No. definitely not. - HarryPotterForeveR

43 Katie Bell

I mean who doesn't like Katie bell

Katie's cool.

44 Trolley Witch

She was dead frightening in cursed child - WinterSky

SHE HAS GRENADES - HarryPotterForeveR

Anything of the trolley dears

I like chocolate frogs. Yay.

45 Parvati Patil

How she after lavender

She and her sister were a couple of the better Asian characters. Parvati certainly wasn't stereotypical, and she had some signs of bravery, slight open- mindedness, and a love for the mystical. We need a couple of not-as-heroic-yet-still-cool girls as well, you know!

Oh come on she's like a second Hermione

She's a lot more relevant than Padma in the books..
