Top Ten Most Annoying Harry Potter Characters

The Top Ten
1 Dolores Umbridge

She is actually SO annoying. I mean, she acts all sweet and then behind the scenes she is making people write in their own blood.. she is racist, she interrupts people, she fires teachers for no reason, she was torturing Muggle Borns and was going to use the crucio curse on Harry. She is very annoying but also very evil, and I would have loved it if she died.

Absolutely the worst, and I think that's a pretty unanimous decision. That slug deserves to be shut in a jar. I bet when the Sorting Hat was placed on her head, he would have died to say "Azkaban". My reasons for despising this heartless woman:
1. She tries to do anything to keep the students from getting their way. This obviously angered the students because her way was extremely corrupt.
2. She was racist to the centaurs, calling them half-breeds of near-human intelligence, which is a tremendous insult when you understand how much the centaurs prized knowledge and actually made use of it.
3. She was abusive. She literally forced students to obey her by harming them by cutting their skin open and marking her evil message, a lesson she believed all students who had a sense of justice needed to learn. She also TORTURED HER STUDENTS FOR INFORMATiON.
4. She put herself first on the priority list, and only on the priority list. She had no respect for others, and would use her ANNOYING AND VILE "HEM HEM" to coax and attempt to scare others into working for her. She was so self-centered that she took Mad-Eye Moody's eye and stuck it on her door immediately after he died. Monster.
5. She was a hypocrite. She persecuted Muggle-borns, which was a foul thing to do, and also executed it in a foul manner. She was a Half-Blood herself, yet still had not an ounce of dignity, as she only cared about her master, the revolting Cornelius Fudge.
6. She will have order. She does not know what doing the right thing means. She only knows proper structure, and protection from the world, leaving her in no position to teach at a school.

2 Rita Skeeter

There's a reason she's a beetle. It's not just her animagus form, it's her personality: dung. She got what she deserved from Hermione, being trapped in a jar. She was a liar: she butts into people's business and spies on everyone. She publicly humiliates Hermione, Harry, Hagrid, and Dumbledore. She acts so innocent and friendly, but obviously makes Harry very uncomfortable, and just infuriates Hermione. She manipulated Bathilda Bagshot, too.

Agree. Agree again. She is an eavesdropping, terrible person who's name means mosquito, and she should jump off a cliff. She is a nonsense writer and stupid, and a critical person. Poopface. She insults people and writes bad, bad things such as Harry and Hermione are in love and Harry's crying. She should not use her stupid quill and write the truth. yes.

Oh god this woman is so annoying! Always trying into peoples business and writing nonsense about harry and Hermione. She is, well, a scumbag! She is also an unregistered animagus which is illegal! And she spies on people and made a fool out of poor hagrid, who is half giant. She needs to back down. Thank God Hermione is so smart!

3 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.

Should we despise Draco? Yes. Do we? Nope, he got a redemption arc. I understand that most of his trauma is from his father, who is a much worse person, but he is not a good person. A good person, say, Luna Lovegood, would go against unjust beliefs, and would not be influenced into bullying others. Draco took his father's Pure-Blood Mania and spread it. He is so self-absorbed and that's not attractive. He bullies everyone, and cannot handle the truth. He nearly killed Katie! He is similar to young James Potter, who was a terrible person. But unlike James Potter, Draco got pitied, but he didn't turn himself around. That's a bit selfish, and he was so rude to everyone around him because he knew of his title and status. He was a coward too: he had to be rescued by his teachers, his family, and even his nemesis.

I really dislike Malfoy. I feel like the main reason the whole Harry Potter fan-fiction is obsessed with him is because they think he's "hot." But besides that his whole character is kinda horrible. He bullies Harry and other Gryffindors with no good reason to dislike any of them. He's constantly bringing up his father as if everyone should bow down to him simply because he has a rich family. When he was trying to kill Dumbledore, he almost killed Katie and Ron, and I doubt he really cared about either of them. He doesn't redeem himself in anyway and he tries to kill Harry and his friends many times.

4 Cornelius Fudge

This guy is a selfish, two faced loser. he jumps to random conclusions about DUMBLEDORE, the greatest wizard who has ever lived and is worth a billion of Fudge! man, I loved when he found out voldemort WAS back and he got knocked of his seat as minister of magic. hah, that dude is just some paranoid, two faced bastard!

Cornelius is a selfish, self absorbed snob. I was stuck between him, Delores, Cho, or Dudley. They are all anoying.

Vile man. Started hating him at the end of the Goblet of Fire book

5 Dudley Dursley

He was a spoilt brat having 36 presents less than his 10th birthday when he had 38. Having two bedrooms when one should've been for Harry, then having a big tantrum when Harry got the bedroom, which was only for the Dursley's plan to try to stop the Hogwarts letters. Harry got the bedroom and he noticed a television which Dudley broke with his foot when his favourite show had been cancelled.
Dudley was also a bully, but his father egged him on.
In the fifth book when the Dementor attacked him, he didn't say much and didn't really say or do much in the sixth. In the seventh he gave Harry a cup of tea and thought Harry was coming with them. (For safety)

At least he redeemed in the last one, but that can't make up for how terribly he was to Harry during his childhood! He's a typical, spoiled, snobby, self centred brat, and why are Ginny, Dobby, Cho, and Draco higher than him? Okay, I can understand why Draco is, he was mean to Harry. Cho cried a lot, but it was because she missed and loved Cedric. Ginny was just awesome, so I don't know why she's on this list, and Dobby is great so he shouldn't be on the list. NONE of the characters I just mentioned are more annoying than Dudley.

6 Percy Weasley

The Weasleys are such a warm loving family. And stupid Percy left them for the lying ministry. Not to mention the time he sent back the hand-knitted sweater from Mrs. Weasley. Oh yeah, and in prisoner of Azkaban when the fat lady was attacked he yelling " Out of the way I am HEAD BOY" It's just like shut up and go away Percy.

He used to be rude and annoying, but he realised his mistakes in the seventh book and came back to his family and apologised. I think he should be given a second chance.

I know a lot of people think Percy's all better now because he came back to fight in the battle, but think about all the annoying things he's done.

7 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.

8 Ginny Ginny Weasley is a prominent character in the "Harry Potter" series by J.K. Rowling. She is the youngest child and only daughter of the Weasley family. Initially introduced as a shy girl with a crush on Harry Potter, Ginny develops into a strong, independent young woman. Skilled in magic and Quidditch, she plays a pivotal role in the fight against Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters.

Ginny has always annoyed me. Even when I first read about her I hated her guts. Honestly she acts really bossy and stubborn. Harry should have ended up with Hermione(Even J.K Rowling said so after a while)
She was barley involved with Harry and the trio. Only until the 5th book she decided to be a hero. You can't just be a shy girl who doesn't even talk to Harry to a short tempered, bossy, stubborn, loud girl. Ginny should be number 1 on this list. And in the Order of the phoenix she used that crazy strong spell that was not needed on that death eater and the whole place fell apart. Gosh I hate her so much. I know looks don't matter and stuff but she has a weird shaped chin. You can say what you like about her but I HATE HER GUTS!

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 Ron about the kiss between Krum and Hermione, which Hermione had confided to her in secret and Hermione did not hold this break of trust against her. Worst was when she got all uppity on Harry in the Order of the Phoenix because she knew how it felt to be possessed. It was Ginny's fault in the first place that Harry and all those other students almost died and absolutely nobody holds her responsible for this. She even broke into Harry's room, because she did not want to get into trouble or for Tom to tell Harry all about her embarrassing secrets. And absolutely nobody in the books will shut up about how absolutely amazing Ginny is, not even those that dislike her!

9 Moaning Myrtle

Annoying? What this is a 14 year old girl who was murdered, she was just telling a boy to go away she didn't know it was or that she was staring at a Basilisk.
Then she goes to haunt her enemy who bullied her in school, and then sent back to Hogwarts to live in the toilets that she was killed in.
Who wouldn't be upset about everything and she was probably in puberty or something.

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.

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.

10 Professor Lockhart

This man was messed up. Why would you steal someone's work and then ERASE. THEIR. MEMORY? He was a fraud, a liar, and cheat. He acts like he's perfect, and then he acts like he earned the fame, taking advantage of all those heroes he stole from, and even having the nerve to say to Harry and Ron: "My books wouldn't have sold half as well if I those people had done those things."

I am slightly annoyed by him. This is the only thing Ravenclaw house has to really be ashamed about. With him using his memory charms to get ahead, he really should've been a Slytherin. Though as self-centered as he is, I'd rather have him as a teacher than Umbridge. That's really his only redeeming quality; he's more competent and less annoying than Umbridge.

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

The Contenders
11 Dobby

Why does Dobby have to be on this list?! Who tried to warn Harry Potter not to go back to Hogwarts because dangerous things were happening? Dobby. Who died to save Harry, Ron, and Hermione from Bellatrix Lestrange? IT WAS DOBBY! If you are a Dobby hater, BACK OFF!

Dobby is one of my least favourite characters in HP, movie and book. He is annoying. He punishes himself constantly and refers to himself in third person. And not to mention, his voice. It's so weak. Yet still, he's strong and just wants to protect Harry Potter.

What?! Dobby was a good pers- er, elf! What's he supposed to be again? Never mind, it does't matter. Dobby wanted to protect Harry Potter when he knew there was danger at Hogwarts. That was very good! OK, his voice IS a little annoying, but that's it!

12 Vernon Dursley

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.

He should be higher on this list.

Other people like Ginny Weasley she was behaving like a teenage girl in the sixth book.

Fleur was a snob till the end of the sixth book, and treated Ginny like she was a three year old. Like when she called Harry a little boy in the fourth book when she found out that he became the fourth Triwizard Champion.

Ginny was not a fan girl she is not Romilda Vane. She was overexcited to see Harry Potter in the first book. Second book she struggled to talk to him. Fourth book, she couldn't wait around forever so she became herself in the fifth.

You don't like a girl for being herself and behaving like a teenager.

But Vernon Dursley just abuses Harry. He was nearly going to throw Harry out of the house in the fifth book. In the second book when Harry said the word "magic" at breakfast Vernon yelled at him insanely and then locked him in his room starving him to death with bars on his window when he found out he couldn't use magic at home. Not forgetting the third book with Ron's phone call. (Funny bit shame not in the film, hopefully one day in the future they will make a T.V. series). His reaction to Harry when he mentioned about motorbikes flying in the first book. Not forgetting his sister the Muggle Umbridge even though Umbridge hates Muggles and is in Azkaban but Marge Dursley and Dolores Umbridge could have a dinner and get drunk together and Marge could teach her about television. Vernon Dursley doesn't punish Dudley for bullying he eggs him on while his wife is deluded into thinking Dudley is a baby angel.

13 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.

Psychopath. I have a lot to say about her, so I'll just summarize it. She happily killed her own cousin, and committed a crime worse than murdering: she performed the Cruciatus Curse on the Longbottoms AFTER the First War was over. This was extremely cruel because they had just had a child, and they thought they were safe after fighting in the war, and because it was unexpected, that's what made it heartbreaking. She shrieks in a very evil manner and is awkward with the "Dark Lord".

I know I sound like a wimp, but sometimes Bellatrix makes me cry. What can make a person so loyal and so trustworthy for something so bad and terrible? What could Voldy have done to make her feel so proud of being one of his filthy slaves? I just don't get her, and I know that behind her loyalty and cruelty there is a tragic story that hopefully J.K Rowling will soon tell us.

I don't hate Bellatrix at all actually, I just think she's really annoying when she's acting like a retard, flailing her arms, doing cartwheels and shrieking in that obnoxiously shrill voice of hers... A good example of that behavior is after Dumbledore's murder in the sixth movie.

14 Lucius Malfoy

Lucius Malfoy, an evil nuisance. He was a Pure Blood Maniac, is creepy, and tried to kill Harry. He influences and manipulates others into getting what he wants because of his wealth and status. He bullies the. Weasleys, Potters, and Grangers, and is a cowardly Death Eater.

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.

How is Draco worse than his own FATHER?!?! Draco was just misunderstood, yet Lucius was the whole reason SOME people hate Draco. But they're the spoilt brats just hating on someone who feels misunderstood.

15 Severus Snape Severus Snape is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. He is characterised as a person of great complexity, whose coldly sarcastic and controlled exterior conceals deep emotions and anguish.

He was a monster. He was not a hero.
He bullied his students and was so biased, always standing with his Slytherins, no matter how vile. He was annoying growing up, and while James Potter was also a bully at the start of his teenage years, Snape always retaliated more. James grew out of his childish bullying, but Snape didn't, because James got Lily and Snape wanted her. She wanted the entire Potter family to die except for Lily, which was why the moment Harry arrived in his classroom, he immediately hated him. The Golden Trio reminded him or her. Harry: he had his mother's eyes, Hermione, a gifted Muggle-born, and Ron, a redhead. Snape asked Harry, "What would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?" This has a deeper meaning. Asphodel is a type of lily associated with death and graves, and Wormwood symbolizes bitter sorrow and grief. Together, the first sentence Snape ever said to Harry was, "I bitterly regret Lilly's death". Over the years, he continued to despise Harry just because he was angry about his mother choosing James over him. Also, he was just a cold person in general.

16 Marge Dursley

Just We're speaking about ANNOYING characters, aren't we? Marge Dursley is not the character that I despise and hate the most, she's not the person I'd like to strangle every time I see her (no, no, this place belongs to Dolores Umbride of course), but, apart from Zacharias Smith, Cornelius Fudge and Cormac McLaggen, who I believe are not on this list, Marge Dursley is the character that irritates me the most. She spends her time insulting Harry's parents, favouring Dudley, abusing Harry (I mean, she was entertained that her dog attacked Harry, she hurt him and claimed she'd like to harshly bit him if she was her teacher - what a mental! ) And we, readers, sigh because we have to read a lot of pages of NONSENSE. The only thing interesting about her is that Harry turned her into a big balloon.

She is worser than Petunia, Vernon and Dudley put together.
She is the Muggle Umbridge.
She might have only had appeared in a postcard in the first book and we only saw her at the beginning of the third but she is the worst Dursley.
I wonder what Petunia's friend Yvonne was like she was mentioned in the first book.

17 Lavender Brown

I don't really get why everyone thinks she's annoying. At the time, Ron and Hermione where not dating, so it wasn't like Lavender was helping Ron cheat. Everyone's just annoyed because she got in the way of a couple you all really wanted to get together. I guess you could call her annoying because she constantly bothered Harry about Ron, but that was because he was straight out ignoring her, and she obviously felt really insucure about it. What's worse, is she was right about Hermione only talking to Ron once he got poisoned. Lavender didn't deserve the hate.

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.

Shes annoying being with Ron all the time. She deserves to run away crying after what she did. She messed up Ron's mind. She is pretty but she is mean. I do feel bad that she had to find out they are not right for each other the hard way.

18 Peter Pettigrew

He sold the Potters to Voldemort because he was such a coward. He came crawling back to his lord out of fear. He was a creep, and his animagus reflected it: a rat, always trying to be sneaky and to inch others to help him because he can't help or think for himself. He was always a follower, and ratted people out.

His animagus form reflects the person he really is , he didn't deserve Harry's mercy . He should have been killed and his body shown as proof

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.

19 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!

I hate Ron, just hate him, he has very few redeeming qualities and is completely lacking in tact, usefulness (aside from chess and comic relief), and is far too much of an idiot and whiner. Worst mistake was making him get Hermione, would have been awesome to see his numerous flaws (which outweigh his good characteristics by a TON) cost him his friendship with Harry and relationship with Hermione. He is funny, but it's almost always at the expense of other people, he's just pathetic. He is basically Draco Malfoy dressed up as a Weasley.

Side note, feel awful for Emma Watson, she had to kiss that frog.

20 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? "

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.

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!

21 Professor Trelawney

I think she is so annoying, she doesn't explain anything and she makes a huge reaction to almost everything!

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

She's kinda annoying but I feel bad for her when stupid Umbridge was stalking her.

22 Pansy Parkinson

She is annoying and I hate her screaming/squealing/laughing she does. She sounds like a constipated monkey.

Oh my gosh like I sooo hate her! She's just jealous of Hermione. Duh...

Why is she after hermione on this list?

23 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.

James Potter was an immature teenage boy. Harry did not know about his father until he saw memories from the enemy.
Fred and George were immature teenage boys -- Hissing at a first year when he was sorted into Slytherin Malcolm Baddock - Goblet of Fire.
Order of the Phoenix - Allowing first years to test their joke shop items.
Stuffed a Slytherin called Montague through the vanishing cabinet injuring him.
But if you don't want to believe Sirius and Lupin when Harry talked to them through the fireplace then you have nothing and you are deluded.

24 Hermione Granger

She and the rest of the Golden Trio always stick their nose into someone else's business. Was it really necessary to make Polyjuice Potion and stalk Draco for an hour just so they see if he's the heir of Slytherin? She's way too ignorant, like when she decides to found S.P.E.W. even though the house elves don't all want to be freed. Yet she still assumes she knows what's best for them. Just because being a know-it-all is part of her character, it doesn't make it any less annoying. She always goes to authority, like in third year. When Harry received a Firebolt, Hermione goes immediately to McGonagall. It was none of her business. Or Dumbledore said this, Dumbledore said that... You don't need to agree with everything authority says.

She is not that smart or good looking or popular. Girl gets shipped with everyone. She is a favourite for self-inserts. She is the authors self-insert. That makes her annoying. She's really not that important or impressive. She definitely can't keep up with actual geniuses. I think the Marauders are much smarter than her and they are not actual geniuses. Being studious is not the same as being smart.

25 Amos Diggory

I mean, he is kind of annoying in the beginning, but in the end of the G.O.F. it's hard to not feel bad for him when he comes running out yelling: "My boy!" I can make an inference that Cedric's mum died before we bet him in the Prisoner of Azkaban, so Cedric would probably be the only one Amos had left. I believe that his story just might be one of the saddest.

Pompous ass was always talking down to Harry. He had no self-awareness and only bragged about Cedric. I was actually pretty upset about Cedric's death but at the same time I thought 'hey at least Amos can stfu now'

Losing Cedric would have been a great loss, so I understand that he took it out on Harry, but that was kind of too far.
