Top Ten Male Harry Potter Characters


The Top Ten

1 Harry Potter 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.

I think Severus Snape should be first!

Harry is awesome he has defeated lord voldemort plenty times he truly is amazing!

He's cute and smart actually.

I don't see a reason that he shouldn't be in first place.

2 Severus Snape 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 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'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!

In most stories villains don't have a background but Snape does and a very interesting one.

"Always," said Snape.

3 Ronald 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

The most loved and least mentioned

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!

"WEASLEY IS OUR KING" YEAH, BOY! ron is amazing! My favorite Boy characters is 1.Ron, 2.Draco, 3.Lupin

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

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.

The wisest man in the world

My favourite. - Goku02

he is wise

5 Neville Longbottom Neville Longbottom

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? - NerdBunny

He should be higher up on the list (above snape! ) He followed Harry till the very end.

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.

6 Sirius Black Sirius Black

He was sent to azkaban for 12 years for being a loyal friend. His best friend dies. He barely ever get's to see the only person left of his friend and cares truly. Is banished from his family. And is killed by a family member his cousin. Yet he still is strong and looks up not down.

Sirius is brave and sweet and kind. He should be up in the top 5. Cedric is nothing compared to Sirius!

He is a great father figure to Harry, Harry always looks him up like he is his own father.

He should be first. He is the best character in the movie.
Cause Sirius is very brave, loyal, trustworthy and Harry's godfather. And at list he taught us that the people the really love us never trurly live us. ♥️♥️♥️

7 Draco Malfoy 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 isn't your typical bad boy. He didn't really was mean to Harry in The Deathy Hallows because he befriend him.

Team Draco all the way

Best character.

9 Cedric Diggory 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.

Cedric Is Much Better Than Edward

11 James Pottter

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

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.

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.

12 Fred Weasley Fred Weasley

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

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

His twin needs to be put with him too. - Minecraftcrazy530

13 George Weasley

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

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


14 Rubeus Hagrid Rubeus Hagrid more.

He has such a kind heart! - Goku02


15 Dobby Dobby

16 Scorpion Malfoy

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.
