Top Ten Harry Potter Characters with Wasted PotentialCharacters who could or should have been better-handled.
The Top Ten
She is a great character. Just made smaller appearances in books 1-4. People think of the Ginny who blushed around Harry but she was not really like that she was just a kid.
All I can say is that she is the best! Much better than perfect, snobby Hermione!
There should've been more build up between her character and Harry's if the author wanted her to be a love interest. We should've also seen more of her personality and it would've been nice to have her interact more with the trio after all she is Ron's sister so they would've been around her a lot. It's just disappointing that a character that we see grow up is so underutilized. - NerdBunny
I love ginny!
Uh no you are think or what.
She wanted to be with Lupin who thought he was too old (age gap but she is an adult) and dangerous (werewolf) but they really liked each other.
So what if she married and had a child.
I guess this is just cry baby Remus/Sirius fans because they hugged like brothers in the third book.
I misspelled thick I put think instead of thick.
Go and read your Remus/Sirius fan fictions.
Bravo,Rowling! Good job on reducing a badass with potential to some clingey fangirl. - LunaFan
I loved her in OotP but she became pathetic in HBP moping over Lupin and she was never the same again. She could have been able to show off her badass auror abilities but JKR ruined her and made her get pregnant and be a wife. Terrible!
Harry just had puppy love. A pretty, popular girl, who was a Quidditch Seeker and a Ravenclaw.
He had the worst first kiss.
Cho thought he was cheating on their first date.
In her sixth year most of her friends left her and she just had one friend hanging around with her and she was a traitor when they had to learn defense Against The Dark Arts (Ron's dad also does and Ron doesn't have sneak on his face. They knew very well not to make sure Umbridge found out so Hermione didn't need to tell them about the list. They could've been expelled)
She was Harry's dream girl for so many years then tragedy strikes her life. We mainly see her crying or flirting. A real waste. Harry also drops her almost immediately after he has a chance with her and that's about it for her character. Although Harry was trying to get with her right after her boyfriend died what was he expecting that she was going to get over it so quickly? He should've waited to make a move and try getting to know her better first because we barely see them interacting at all before they go to kiss. - NerdBunny
Rowling was kinda mean to her. Killed off her love,then made her more and more miserable. - LunaFan
Annoying - Cyclne
The movies SHOULDN'T have given all of his cool moments to Hermione!
Ron is underrated, but I think JKR did a good job with his character in the books. His potential was not wasted at all
His character just kinda drops outta existence only to be talked about once in a great while. - NerdBunny
YES! Finally, other Percy supporters! Siriusly, I understand Audrey
I think he was great and he was a better boyfriend than Ron
He is not a wimp.
Would a wimp do what he did in all of the books.
Save the Philosopher's Stone. Face a three headed dog - So calling him a wimp.
Would a wimp kill a Basilisk
Would a wimp believe a man is out to kill him and wants to kill him for hearing he killed his parents but was framed and then he fights the dementors.
Would a wimp do the three tasks of the tri wizard tournament
Would a wimp agree to start Dumbledores Army, then go to the department of mysteries.
Would a wimp go to that cave with Dumbledore
Would a wimp fight in a wizarding war.
The only wimp is you for typing that.
Er most of his enemies were Slytherins.
Whiny? What the hell..go read Barry Trotter.
No a fence he is a wimp!
He was okay but he really could've been better-handled. Maybe less whinier and less mean particularly toward Slytherin. - LunaFan
SMARTEST WITCH EVER
People who think Harry is one of the worst characters should go to Dragon Ball.
Who? - Margarida
He's not even a character
I love Katie Bell, but I feel she wasn't explored enough by JK... I felt sorry for her when she is cursed and it should have shown more if her after that!
She could've been put in the fourth book, her surname came up at The Quidditch World Cup.
She's my favorite character but we should have gotten to see more of her character and she should've displayed more emotions. - LunaFan
Yes, Luna should have not just acted angry and kind, but bossy, rude, thoughtful, logical... and more. And J.K should have least put her in the fourth book.
He's so CUTE AND IS KNOWN TO TALK ON BOXING DAY
Could have been nicer
