Top Ten Male Harry Potter Characters

The Top Ten
1 Harry Potter Harry James Potter is the title character of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The majority of the books' plot covers seven years in the life of the orphan Potter, who, on his eleventh birthday, learns he is a wizard.

Since I was only a minor fan of the HP (Harry Potter) series, I originally liked Hagrid & Ron the most. However, after developing more interest in the series, Harry easily became my favorite character and fascinated me more than any other character ever did and ever will. Harry is super cool, I love how he's calm in most situations, even terrifying ones. He's just chill and fascinates me much more than other characters in the series ever did or ever will. He is always going to be my favorite character simply due to my fascination with his incredibly brave and calm personality.

Harry deserves to be at the top. He is an independent person but he is cute and smart at the same time. I love how he has so many comebacks to say to really annoying people like Draco Malfoy who for some weird reason everybody seems to like. Go Harry!

Duh! He is the whole point this series has become a popular book! And what is the title and the main main character of the books and movies. Plus he was the one that defeated voldemort! But then again Draco is pretty awaesome and cute. AND SLYTHERIN IS NOT BAD!

Yes! Harry's awesome! Who had to go through his parents dying and going to live in a hell house, who had to suffer through the cruciatus curse. And who saved Ginny, destroyed Horcuxes, and much more.

2 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.

Snape's at number 2? Seriously? He should be at number 1! Yes, I admit that he made quite a few mistakes. But, he literally became a Death-Eater for the Order! He is misunderstood so many times! Even by us Potterheads! His love story is really sad. He loved Lily so much but stayed as a one-sided lover. She chose James. So obviously it's normal for him to dislike James and Harry. Still, he saved Harry many times! I think he should be at number 1!

Snape was critical to the story. Without him, it would have been trash. Without Harry, Ron and Hermione would be a duo who fought Voldemort. Obviously, the attitude of the story would shift a little, but it would still be good. But you take out THIS character, the complex character who has sacrificed so much for this boy he doesn't even LIKE, but whose mother he LOVED... I mean, I wouldn't read it.

Snape has the best and saddest love story ever in all the books I've ever read. He did everything and anything for those he cared for (Lily) and protected and saved Harry because he was Lily's son countless times. Also in the movies he is hilarious.

Snape is my favorite because he still loved Lily Potter even if she betrayed him, and he was a handsome young man, he got bullied by a jerk, and was only mean to Harry because he saw Harry's father, the jerk. And Snape saved Harry. Go snape!

3 Albus Dumbledore Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.

Actually Dumbledore wanted him dead - 2storm

Fans like you are the most annoying and make Harry Potter look stupid.

He should be the second best, after Harry, because he is Harry's mentor and he was the one who shaped the boy's life.

Actually he wanted harry to overcome death with... Love
Plus by coming to 'die' Voldemort destroyed a horcrux
Let's just say he's like the third brother from the tale of the brothers
He greeted death as an old friend

I couldn’t blame Severus Snape for killing him, and my favourite teacher along with Hagrid. He drank the emerald liquid to find the horcrux and was arrested for the DA members after they were caught by Dolores Umbridge.

4 Sirius Black

People only consider him as a bullying, reckless kid. They don't mention that he managed to escape the clutches of the "Noble and Most Ancient House of Black". He had an abusive, stiff family, probably worse than the Dursleys, and he deserves credit for holding his head high through that. He probably influenced Regulus to go against the Voldemort. He lived off rats and spent thirteen years in Azkaban avenge James and Lily, and protect Harry. That shows his strength in itself.

Sirius Black. I don't even know where to start. He was my number one favorite character, along with Dobby. I was just DEVASTATED when Sirius died, I cried for about 7 hours straight, no joke. He had no reason to die, such a brave, kind person. He was a great sort-of father to Harry, after all, Harry was the only family Sirius really had left. Apart from Bellatrix, etc. In my opinion, Sirius should be number one.

Sirius was a good character it's like death didn't scare him one bit because he said that he would rather die then betray his friends he was a father figure to Harry and treated him like his own son in prisoner of azkaban we believe Sirius is a crazy murdering lunatic who sold out Lily and James but later we find out that not only is Sirius Harry's godfather he is innocent and Wormtail was the one who framed Sirius murdered the 13 muggles and sold out Lily and James to save his neck Sirius was Loyal to his friends so I couldn't blame him for wanting Wormtail dead Lupin wanted Wormtail dead too and if Harry hadn't stopped them Sirius would have been back in azkaban he loved Harry and was close to him that's why I hated his death he was Brave Loyal and Kind the sorting hat was right to place him in Gryffindor his family shunned him because he was in Gryfffindor while his whole family was in Slytherin and because he did not believe in pure-blood superiority his friends were killed by ...more

Sirius Black is the best Harry Potter character by far! The relationship he had with Harry was so beautiful and it was so tragic when it ended so fast. He was Harry’s last chance at a family and I cried so hard when he died! He was shut up in Azkaban for most of Harry’s life for a crime that he didn’t commit and he barely got to know his godson. But he put himself at risk every time Harry needed help and that was one of the main reasons that he died. He was charming, loyal, brave, and knew exactly what Harry needed to hear any time he needed advice. He was a light in a dark time for Harry which made his death so tragic

5 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.

Draco Malfoy is the Slytherin Prince! I'm in Slytherin, so I love him! He's just the boy I wanted: A rich, spoiled, snobby, power-hungry, greedy, cute little British boy and I love how he thinks so highly of himself. Draco will always be my boy! :3

DRACO DRACO. Draco is the best character. Some people think he is a bully. He isn't he offered friendship to Harry. Harry rejected it. HARRY STARTED IT! Draco saved Harry's life. And he didn't pull through in killing Dumbledore. He didn't want to be a death eater. And his parents forced him to do bad things s. He deserves no hate. He is amazing. Draco is so cool and savage. My favorite's are "weasl bee" and "wait till my father hears about this! " TEAM DRACO! 🐍 Also I am a Slytherin

Malfoy's a jerk. But once you see him in Half Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows, you realise he's not a bully: he's a frightened boy who's just lost the person he actually cared for the most: his father.

Not only is he my favorite male character, but he any Luna will always and forever be tied for my favorite Harry Potter characters of all time. Luna and Draco are just so perfect for each other and I ship them compleatly.

6 Ronald Weasley

Ron is an awesome character he's one of my personal favorites he's a great character he's often used for comic relief but he is more than just the sidekick to Harry he is a loyal friend I know he was sometimes really jealous but that was because he felt he could not live up to his 6 older brothers or it would be because he loved Hermionie he would own up to his mistakes and has proven to be a heroic character

Ron is displayed wrong in the movies. He literally sacrificed what he had for Harry: didn't hesitate to offer up room in the already cramped house, offered up his sandwich even though it was ALL HE HAD, and also was very concerned and supportive of Harry! Let's give it up for RONALD BILIUS WEASLEY!

HE'S THE BEST. Most human character in the franchise, relatable and always does the right thing in the end. Is a hero from the beginning without having to be chosen by prophecy or a genius. Ron is all of us

Ya'll only voted for Harry 'cause his the star. Ron's greedy, funny, immature What MORE DO YOU WANT PEOPLE! Without him HP would be boring.

7 Remus Lupin

I was pissed at Hermione just cause she (or I did) lost her temper cause of a Defense Against The Dark Arts teacher was a super neat werewolf!( I will admit he was a little creepy in werewolf form in the movie) Gone And Gone I guess...
R.I.P
Remus Lupin
Werewolf
Will hopefully be missed
-The Wolf Lupin

He is so underrated. He is the greatest DADA professor. He taught Harry arguably the most important spell. he's a flippin werewolf. He has a great care for all his pupils. He helped Neville believe in himself. A valiant man who deserved a better ending and deserves far more praise.

Lupin gave his life for the wizarding world, even when he became a father. He said he would be known as the good guy when his son grew... Third favourite character, after Snape and Black.

He may not win any "Father of the Year" awards, but he was a selfless and kind person.

8 Neville Longbottom

Neville is the best Harry Potter character ever! He is always so supportive of his friends and I think his backstory is so tragic. In the first movies he is shy and unfortunate but very cute , he grows to be the bravest most amazing person in the movies. So yes Neville should be first in the list - so vote for him higher! After all he slayed nagini which meant Harry could kill Voldemort! He is a legendary character and super funny as well :)

Neville is just incredible. His character is far less annoying than Harry and I think if he was the chosen one (which he could well have been) the story would have been very interesting. Not saying the story should be focused on Longbottom instead of Potter, not at all. But that in the end if Neville was the chosen one it could be like this huge plot twist. Neville was very kind and just needed someone to believe in him and push him.

Neville's character evolved so much throughout the whole series. He went from being a forgetful and clumsy scaredy-cat to being one of the most loyal and badass guys in the entire story. He really grows into his own and even takes down Nagini. His parent's past is so tragic and the twist about him possibly being a contender as "chosen one" is very interesting. I wonder how events would have unfolded if he had been in Harry's shoes?

Neville is the most loyal character in the Harry Potter series! He was with harry to help sirus but he didn't know the truth about him.

9 Lord Voldemort Lord Voldemort is a fictional character and the central main antagonist in J. K. Rowling's series of Harry Potter novels. Voldemort first appeared in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, which was released in 1997.

Whoever voted him must be crazy and I will never vote for a non- nosed guy. But at least better than Umbridge...

Dude of course he going to be on the list he is the cause of everything and so what if he doesn't have a nose

Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore is the best sorcerer in the world you filthy half blood.LOL

First of all why would he even be considered on this list I thought this was for the good guys not the evil ones and second of all he is digusting I mean who 👃 what other grotesque body parts he is missing

10 Vernon Dursley

He should be last

The Contenders
11 Cedric Diggory

Cedric definitely is a awesome male character! 1. He very good looking! 2. He very nice as he apologizes to Harry about the badges that that his friends where wearing that said "Potter Stinks". 3. As Harry saved him from the bushes in the 3rd task, he wanted Harry to win the tournament by saying "Go, take it! You saved me! " and 4th He's every girls dream boy!

The Beginning To A Once Promising Career For Robert Pattinson, But Unfortunately He Ruined It With Twilight.

Twilight hate is outdated the books and films are over.
I like Harry Potter and Twilight. Sorry its not Dracula.

I think that he's kind of overrated.

12 Rufus Scrimgeour
13 Gilderoy Lockhart
14 Lucius Malfoy

My father will hear about this

15 Fred Weasley

Fred, the best character, the better looking twin, the main cause of my mourning. Goodbye to Fred, the funniest, smartest, greatest character ever.

Where's Georgie!?! He needs to be with Georgie! They are my favorite boys along with Harry and Ron.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THE TWINS! Why is George in a separate coloum? They need to be together! THEY ARE MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS! THEY HELPED HARRY MORE THAN RON! They gave Harry the Mauraders map even though they reslly loved it. They let Harry pick something from Weasley's wizard wheezes for free. They remembered how they even got started. I love them I was really really sad when Fred died I cried so much..

Oh come on swap places with Umbridge she should die instead of him!

16 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.

Harry Potter's best mate

17 James Potter

James Potter stood up for his friends, took in a werewolf, made fiends with a boy who came from a dark family and took in a boy who couldn't find anybody else. He sacrificed himself for his family. Snape started the rivalry by saying that James's dad was an idiot when he and Sirius were minding their own business. James saved Snape's life, then Snape decided too not care if James was killed by Voldemort. Hexes are a lot less harmful than curses (cough cough sectumsempra). If Snape wanted to be Lily's husband then he should have been a less racist person, even if he lost his temper. If you felt embarrassed, would you say a racist word? If you said yes, go die in a hole.

JAMES POTTER! I LOVE YOU! James is the best he actually died for Lily, unlike that stupid road Snape. James never gave up on her, and he loved her do being her, so he actually cared about her happiness. Snape just wanted to stare at her and generally act like a fool

James Potter was a rude idiot! He teased poor Severus back in their Hogwarts days. He was a hotheaded I don't wanna say it! What he did to Severus was cruel and cannot be forgiven. I HATE HIM! Lily made a huge mistake by marrying James Potter.

He technically didn't sacrifice his life for Lily. He had no wand, Voldemort was just too omnipotent, Lily probably wouldn't have stood a chance. So he knew he was going to die, he just said for the sake of it.

18 Barty Crouch Jr.
19 Rubeus Hagrid Rubeus Hagrid is a fictional character in the Harry Potter book series written by J. K. Rowling. Hagrid is introduced in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as a half-giant and half-human who is the gamekeeper and Keeper of Keys and Grounds of Hogwarts, the primary setting for the first six novels. ...read more.

It was so hard to make a decision between Hagrid, Snape, Sirius. Hagrid and Sirius are so nice to Harry but Snape is so brave. My favorites would have to be in order Sirius, Snape, then Hagrid but I had to pick Hagrid because he always so kind to Harry and even though he half giant he is gentle.

Hagrid is the best character! If it wasn't for him Harry would still be stuck with his retarded relatives

He has such a kind heart!

He is brilliant

20 Dobby

Dobby is a GREAT elf! He deserves top 5

Dobby is a good elf. He deserve top 10.

Dobby got a vote, Dobby is free

He should be at the top.Snake1749

21 George Weasley

Fred and George should probably be tied because they are basically the same person!

I love the twins! Definitely in a number one spot on my list of number ones!

22 Arthur Weasley

Has anyone noticed that he looks like a weasel, his patronus is a weasel, and his surname is named after weasels?
its because Arthur Weasley's actually a weasel!

He showed so much care and has a sense of humor. Weird inetrest in muggles

What the Heck!

23 Albus Potter

Hottest character so cute intelligent loyal smart

24 Scorpion Malfoy

Wait a second people actually talking about Cursed Child? Saying positive things instead of negative things. Wow this is new, maybe the fandom is starting to become a little bit more likeable again.

Scorpious is my all time favorite character he is the number 1 example of the quote by albus dumbledore "it matters not what someone is born, what they grow to be! " He is sweet and kind and not to mention albus best friend

I read all the fanfiction about him and he's amazing than he's grandfather. Not gonna compare him with his dad. If it weren't for Draco's guilt, hw wouldn't have to be good boy.

It's Scorpio not scorpion

25 Alastor Moody

He is definitely the coolest harry potter charachter.

brave tough love
