Least Important Harry Potter Characters


The Top Ten

1 Penelope Clearwater

Penelope seemed to exist just so Percy could have a girlfriend Percy hid the fact that he had a girlfriend so The family wouldn't tease him for it but she didn't seem to effect the plot at all

She doesn't really do anything important

2 Firenze

He was a centaur who frightened Quirrell away when Quirrell was about to attack Harry and Firenze carried Harry on his back to safety.
After that he taught Divination in the fifth book when Umbridge sacked Trelawney and went to the battle of Hogwarts.

Firenze is so underrated! People don't remember that he saved Harry in the 1st book. If he didn't do that, Harry would be dead. He IS important. He just needs to be more recognized.

I have no idea who this is, sooo...

3 Alicia Spinnet
4 Hannah Abbott

Susan Bones she is a Hufflepuff in Harry's year.
Not just Hannah Abbott.

She married Neville because they can marry whoever they want its JK Rowling's story. I wonder if they had any children that's one part I'd like to find out.

Why did she even marry Neville?

She's like, the only existing female huffelpuff. - AnonymousChick

5 Colin Creevey
6 Lavender Brown

She did exist in earlier books.
Her best friend since her first year is Parvati Patil.
Third book - Lavender found out that her pet bunny rabbit Binky had been killed by a fox. She and Parvati were the most interested in Divination
Fourth book - Ron and the Uranus joke, Harry asked if she could go to the Yule Ball with Ron, but Lavender was going with Seamus Finnegan. Mad Eye Moody put one of the unforgivable curses on the students and she imitated a squirrel.
Fifth book - She originally thought Harry was lying but joined Dumbledores Army but couldn't do the Patronus Charm.
Lavender was saddened that Umbridge had sacked Professor Trelawney and even brought her some nice daffodils, but then she and Parvati got a crush on the new Divination teacher centaur Firenze. Then the O.W.L.s practised basic Locomotion Charms with Parvati.
So she does exist for other things. But a minor character.

I think the only reason she even exists is so there could be a love triangle with her Ron and Hermionie she seemed obsessed with Ron

7 Ernie MacMillan
8 Blaise Zabini
9 Natalie McDonald

Anyone whos reading this... do you even know the story of Natalie?
Natalie McDonald was a real person who was battling cancer with strength. (forgive me, mrs rowling is any of this is inaccurate but I'm pretty sure I got it right) Before she died, Jo Rowling sent her an excerpt from the Goblet of Fire but she was too late. Joanne named a Gryffindor after her.
Natalie may not be influential in the books or movies, but in the back, her story can make you cry. Like it did me.
I never met Natalie, but she suffered a fate no one should have to.

Rest in Peace, Natalie, our brave Gryffindor
Please, all I ask is that you go to http://nowiknow.com/the-harry-potter-fan-who-was-worthy-of-gryffindor/

my heart hurts so much, please read her story

10 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.

What do you mean Ron's not important if it weren't for Ron Harry would have dead in Deathly Hallows because Harry almost drowned because of the Horcrux Ron may have been used for Comic Relief but he is just as amazing as Harry and Hermione sure he has flaws but who doesn't he's a Loyal Brave Funny Person He's proven Bravery so many times Ron is important

The Contenders

11 Romilda Vane
12 Craig Bowker Jr.
13 Marietta Edgecombe

Do you even read the books?
She betrayed Dumbledore's Army and the list that Hermione made that everyone signed she put a powerful jynx on it which caused the word sneak to appear on Marietta's face in zits. It took a few years to get rid of them but still has scars for being a traitor for something important to the students because of that Umbridge.
But she never spoke, just came along with Cho being her best friend.

who - KatyMartinezAndTheDiamonds

14 Morag MacDougal
15 Hermione Granger

She is one of the more important characters and so is Ron, Teddy Lupin, Hannah Abbott Longbottom, Rose Weasley and Luna Lovegood. But we don't know the real first names of Hermione's parents some people are named after their parents. What if Hermione's mothers name is Hermione Granger.


16 Teddy Lupin

There really was no reason for him to exist, let alone be conceived.

17 Mark Evans

Yeah the old theories.
JK Rowling - "Mark Evans is... nobody. The car with false licence plates is at the door and I've got to glue on my goatee. Goodbye."
He was a 10 year old with the same maiden name as them and there is a clothes shop for larger sizes (Imagine you are a woman with size nine feet wanting socks) called Evans.

A 10 year old boy that was beaten up by Dudley Dursley in the summer of 1995.
I remember the old theories.

Wasn’t Petunia and Lily’s last name Evans...?

18 Rose Granger-Weasley

She is not important at all. I HATE THIS BITCH! I want to punch her.

I hate her and I'm glad to know that she isn'n "that" important. :)

19 Lee Jordan
20 Charlie Weasley
21 Dolores Umbridge
22 Stan Shunpike
23 Ernie Prang
24 Gabrielle Delacour
25 Florean Fortescue
26 Beatrix Bloxam

Her books were called Toadstool Tales, featuring sanitised, "purified" adaptions of stories from earlier works including The Tales of Beedle the Bard.
Her books were universally loathed by children and were eventually banned because they caused nausea and vomiting.
Here is an extract of Beatrix Bloxam's version of The Wizard and the Hopping Pot in The Toadstool Tales.
" Then the little golden pot danced with delight- hoppitty hoppitty hop! - on its tiny rosy toes! Wee Willykins had cured all the dollies of their poorly tum-tums, and the little pot was so happy it filled up with sweeties for Wee Willykins and the dollies! "

27 Cuthbert Binns

History of Magic teacher the only ghost teacher. A makes History of Magic the most boring subject, he just told about the Chamber of Secrets which he thought was a myth.

28 Cormac McLaggen
29 Aunt Muriel

33 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 ...read more.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
"Mistletoe," said Luna dreamily, pointing at a large clump of white berries placed over Harry's head. He jumped out from under it. "Good thinking," said Luna very seriously. "It's often infested with Nargles."
Harry was saved the necessity of asking what Nargles are by the arrival of Angelina, Katie and Alicia. All three of them were breathless and looked very cold.

"Mistletoe," said Cho quietly, pointing at the ceiling over his head.
"Yeah," said Harry. His mouth was very dry. "It's probably full of Nargles, though."
"What are Nargles? "
"No idea." said Harry. She had moved closer. His brain seemed to have been Stunned. "You'd have to ask Loony. Luna, I mean."
Cho made a funny noise halfway between a sob and a laugh.

34 Dennis Creevey

Less important than Colin Creevey, except he managed to get into Hogsmeade when he was a second year.

35 Piers Polkiss
36 Marge Dursley
37 Yvonne

Friend of Petunia Dursley, was on holiday in Majorca in 1991.

38 Mosag
