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.

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.

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 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'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.

3 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

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!

4 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.

The wisest man in the world

My favourite. - Goku02

5 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.

Best Supporting Character Ever!

6 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.

Love this character and obliviousslllyyy Tom Felton... ALWAYS

He is the best he should be number 3 behind Harry and Ron
I love him he should date Ron weasley not hermione granger.

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.

Draco Malfoy is my favourite character and is portrayed so well by Tom Felton

7 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.

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!

8 Remus 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.

I love the character of Remus Lupin too and his relationship with Tonks.

Think about it, he was passionate and patient and kind...

RIP lupin his and tonks death was so SAD

9 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!

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. - Goku02

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

10 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... - LannaLau

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

He needs a nose!

You-Know-Who should be more at the top!

The Contenders

11 James Potter

The way people talk about James Potter are obviously forgetting what teenagers are like.
Anyway we have only seen memories.

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.

12 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

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

13 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. 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! - Goku02

He is brilliant

14 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!


15 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

16 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

It's Scorpio not scorpion

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.
