Most Important Harry Potter Characters
The Top Ten
Of course Harry Potter is the most important character. But his a bit vulnerable. He was the one who had to get the Philosopher's Stone in the dungeon whilst battling Quirrell. He was the one who slayed the basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets and rescued Ginny from Tom Riddle. He was the one who was begin effected by the Dementors. He was the one who saw Cedric Diggory get killed and saw Voldemort return and had a duel with him. He was the one struggling when Voldemort was reading his mind. He was the one who led Dumbledore's Army into the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. He was the one who led the inferi in the cave away from him in Dumbledore. He was the one who watched Snape kill Dumbledore on the Astronomy tower. He was the one who had to camp out in the forest and watch one of his best friends abandoned him. He was the one who who faced Voldemort in the Forbidden Forrest and was killed but then survived. He was the one who finally defeated Voldemort once and for ...more
Of course Harry is the most important character the series is named after him he is the protagonist in fact without him the series would Probably not have the success it does now he's the chosen one he and the main antagonist Voldemort have a connection he was the only one to survive Avada Kedavra the killing curse he's went through a lot of emotional pain with his loved ones dying but he's still a nice person every single book has his name in the title and is about him he saved the philosophers stone when he was only 11 he saved Ginny Weasely from the chamber of secrets when he was 12 he made a patrounus so powerful he nearly took out Malfoy and his cronies when he was 13 he entered the goblet of fire even though he was only 14 and that was not considered old enough to compete he taught Dumbledore's army and was a great teacher despite being only 15 he fell in love with Ginny Weasely and made the slug club when he was 16 and when he was 17 in the final book he killed voldemort and ...more
He isn't my favorite character but he is the hero of the story and the literal title character.
What's the name of the series again?54 Comments
It was a plot twist the first and sixth.
How is Snape 2 he should be 1 Harry should be second I guess
How is snape number two! He should be in the top ten yes but not top 5 - Annabel154
I hate how he was the real hero all along, but he died not knowing if people will ever see him as one, if they'll still see him as the villain he faked at the end21 Comments
Screw her! I wish she died shes so ugly
She is not important character more like a bossy showoff and yelling at
people for no reason she should be number 12.
In my opinion she’s in 2 place for crime out loud!
I am actually like hermione27 Comments
Vote this up. Voldemort is the antagonist, Hermione is a sidekick. He deserves to be ahead of her. - al1070
He's like super important! Must be second place.
Voldemort should be higher. Harry Potter would not be Harry Potter otherwise - Annabel154
The series would literally not exist if voldy was not in this world - Annabel15425 Comments
Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore saved Harry multiple times and found the hallows and gave hints to Harry where they were and he did the same thing for the horcruxes. He had chosen his death so Voldemort wouldn't be the master of the elder wand Harry would be dead without him and Harry's at the top! That's confusing.
Harry would of died in the philosophers stone if it was t for dumbledore, since he came and finished off quirrel/Voldemort - Annabel154
None of this could have happened without Dumbledore! He rules! Harry Potter is a little to full of himself and takes everything for granted. I think maybe at least Ron and Hermione should be a bit higher in the ranks though.
Dumbledore should at least be #3 not #5. Who told Snape to kill him so Draco didn't have to? Who proved Harry innocent at his hearing in book 5? Who saved Harry and Neville’s lives in the Department of Mysteries? Who cared about Harry so much it took him till Harry was 15 to tell him about the Prophecy? Dumbledore6 Comments
Ron is not important at all, except he saved Harry from drowning and broke a horcrux in deathly hallows then married Hermione Granger (who is cool) and had such sweet children rose granger weasley and hugo.
Ron deserves number 3. I mean, he's just as important as the others.
Ron was important to the series in fact in deathly hallows sure he may have left but he came back owned up to his mistake and saved Harry from drowning in order of the phoenix he beleived him when nobody else would sure he was jealous of Hermionie but that's because he loved her and cared about her why do you think he was jealous in Goblet of fire because Hermionie went with viktor krum to the yule ball and in Half blood prince he was jealous again of Hermionie because viktor krum kissed her he would not care about all that if he did not care about her he is a Loyal and brave friend he was used for comic relief but proved himself on multiple occausions which is why he is one of my favorite characters
Why in the world is Ron down here? He should be right up there with Harry and Hermione. So much wouldn't have happened if there was no Ron.16 Comments
After James and Lily's deaths, Sirius was the only remaining family for Harry before he got married. Plus he's my crush
Should be #1 not #7! It was so sad when he died in The Order Of The Phoenix!
I just LOVE him and I sob every time I see his beautiful face
PS. Amazing mustache
Such an important character. He was the only family Harry had left and was like a father to him.
The books would be boring without his plots to get Harry expelled.
Has a ton tpo do with the story
The character development is so GOOD. I love Draco Malfoy, definitely my favorite character. Not only does he prove that he has good in his heart, he also saves Harry's life. Twice, I guess. The reason he acted so cruel is because his father is cruel. To outside people. His father taught him to be intolerant. His mother, though, is kind. But he is number seven? MY FATHER WILL HEAR ABOUT THIS!15 Comments
HARRY WOULD NOT LIVED A HAPPY FIRST YEAR
First of all, Sirius would have died early if Hagrid hadn't had Buckbeak! Poor Norbert/Norbertta would have lived with Voldemort! Nobody would have gotten Harry Hedwig! Nobody would have accidentally told Harry and his friends about the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone and Voldemort would have got it!
Of course he's important! Hagrid was the first one to tell harry about wizardry. Without him, Hermione, Luna, Ron, Cho, Fleur, Ginny and other amazing characters would not have existed! Without Hagrid, the first book would've been called: Harry Potter and the Stupid Dursleys.
He is the best.13 Comments
Neville should be joint top with harry. Neville is the second chosen one I mean come on... 10th? It was Neville or harry... but jk Rowling decided Harry Potter and the philosopher's stone sounded better than neville longbottom and the philosopher's stone... let's be honest I understand why
He is the second most important character after Harry Potter! He's the one who killed Voldemort! (Because let's be honest after he killed Nagini Voldemort feels weak and dies, Harry didn't do anything apart from taking Voldemort's wand, and don't tell me that that's why he died) And it kills me because he did amazing things but he never got thé credits, it was only Harry "the chosen one" who did. But clearly, it's Neville the real hero.
You go champ!
Neville is important he started off as a Shy and Forgetful boy who had the lowest self esteem ever into a Hero He Killed Nagini Voldemort's snake he against the Carrows and led a rebellion at school he stood up to Voldemort and reassured everybody by saying that Harry will be in their hearts Harry was not really dead but that was still a heartwarming speech Neville is super important
Neville is awesome
A.he helped Harry Potter in goblet of fire
B.he talks against Voldemort
C.he killed Nagini and saved Ron and hermionie
Ginny is important to the series if she wasn't then she would probably not be Harry's girlfriend she'd just be Ron's little sister Ginny had a crush on Harry ever since the 2nd book and she was only 11 she never actually gave up on him she just had to be herself around him she was a fierce quidditch player really popular she was really good at casting spells such as the bat bogey hex and the reductor hex she was important to the series if she and Harry never got together Harry would probably marry Cho chang
Ginny should be higher up. She's important. As much as I love all the others, Ginerva Molly Weasley is the best.
She is a great person, though I love Luna, Hagrid, and Hermione more.
Look, non-Ginny lovers, she showed a lot of potential and brought out A LOT in Harry Hermione Ron and Luna so MY GINNY LOVING FRIENDS COME ON AND LETS GET OUR GIRL ON TOP OF THIS FLIPPING LIST11 Comments
Dobby is da bomb. com
Dobby is the best, amazing and better than anyone else!
I hate Bellatrix Lestrange for killing Dobby.
I hate Harry Potter to! Dobby must be the new main character in the new movie, Dobby Is Free!
Vote Dobby and don't vote anyone else! - Go Dobby!
He is totally awesome
Dobby is a lad3 Comments
Uh Lily is really important without her, the series wouldn't exist because Harry would be dead, also Lily puts this protection on him AND WITHOUT IT VOLDEMORT WOULD HAVE KILLED HIM BY THE FIRST BOOK. Lily rules!
Lily potter and Voldemort are the most important characters in th series - Annabel154
Don't get me wrong I love Ginny Weasley but shouldn't she switch places with Lily? Ginny's a great character but she's less important. Wait no. Put her 2nd. After Harry. Or before Harry. Snape should be more down below, he barely contributed to the series. LILY EVANS POTTER IS THE REASON HARRYS ALIVE OKAY? Without Lily, Harry would be dead and oomf, Voldy would take over da world. Ok? You say you want that to happen? Now move Lily darling up! - WinterSky
What the hell if Lily hadn't died for Harry Voldemort would be alive and Harry dead1 Comment
Listen the nargles where what she believed infested mistletoe.
She appeared in the fifth book, she was most important when she was the most sane at the argument on getting to the department of mysteries and said to take the thestrals. If Harry hadn't been using his teenage anger on everyone he would've remembered to use the thestrals because he can also see them.
I think you're going by the movie Luna.
Because you seem to forget this quote "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." that's the only time she mentioned them.
MY FAVE CHARACTER!
MY FAVORITE CHARACTER!
If she did come in there be no story...6 Comments
She showed Harry how you get on to nine3/4
She is a great one!
She is the best! WITHOUT HER GINNY WOULD HAVE BEEN KILLED! THE CURSED CHILD NEVER COULD HAVE HAPPENED WITHOUT HER!
She should be higher. if she wouldn't have killed bellatrax ginny would have died and so harry could not have kids and the cursed child would never of happened
Honestly, Voldemort should be higher. Without him Harry Potter would not be our Harry Potter - Annabel154
This is already on the list - Ravenclaw12
Voldemort was actually the one starting IT he had the Death esters, he killed Lily and James and gives Harry hus scar making him the chosen one
Um,i don't think that the whole bloody series would have existed without voldermot1 Comment
If it hadn't been for them their would be no Harry Potter!
He was better than unbridgeable Lockhart Quirrell Carrow snape and moody all put together IN DADA
Remus was the greatest DADA professor shown in the books.He helped
Harry and his friends a few times.(lots of times actually)
Lol he's at twenty one lucky Wahts 9 + 10 = 21 21's a great number. because the answer to life is 42 and the half of 42 is 21
Why is he down here! you gotta be kidding
She made the prophecy so that's why old Voldemorts went to the potters
He turned out good at the end... I guess he really does love Harry. - AnnaOfArendelle332
Best character enough said
Shut up dudley is mixed
One word : Fat FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT2 Comments
How is he annoying?
Is it because he was played by Robert Pattinson.
He was only in two books because he was murdered in the fourth.
Are you going by the match in the third book, when Harry was attacked by dementors, Cedric wanted another game.
Fred and George only found him annoying because good looks, and Quidditch is important to them as well as their joke shop.
People make fun of Hufflepuffs and Cedric was one of the first Hufflepuffs that you can't make fun of
Anyway non-Hufflepuffs who try to get in Hufflepuff common room get sprayed with vinegar. (You have to tap the correct barrels in the rhythm of Helga Hufflepuff and the lid will swing open to a basement)
I hate Cedric he is annoying
1. Without him he would make the Harry Potter movie "Goblet of fire" horrible huge part of it.
2. He died so come on give him respect
3. He was one of best or the best hufflepuffs that exist.
Love you Bella e
I think they mean Charlie right well actually I know it is
How is he even important
If Salazar Slytherin had not started all the pure-blood stuff, then the story wouldn't have even happened. People wouldn't have harmed and killed for blood purity. Voldemort wouldn't have gathered an army and killed lots of muggle borns. Harry Potter wouldn't have been the chosen one. Slytherin helped to create Hogwarts, so literally Hogwarts would not exist. THE WHOLE STORY HAPPENED BECAUSE OF SLYTHERIN. IT wouldn't HAVE HAPPENED WITHOUT HIM.
Shes on here twice? Or is this like one of the daughters :I
Professor slug horn
Without him, the Goblet of Fire would have been a great flop.
TR0LL IN THE DUNGEON!
Comment less idiot regulus
She is the reason Voldemort was born how he was, unable to love as had been conceived on a love potion brewed by merope. Leading to him seeking immortality. Voldemort considered himself more important that other people so would kill anyone who threaten it. Without Voldemort harry would Still have his parents and the fact that he doesn’t is the whole plot of the story, yes you could say that Voldemort is the most important character but merope gaunt created Voldemort. Without her there would basically be no Harry Potter. - Annabel154
The whole story would not have happened if she hadn’t given Tom Riddle Sr. that love potion. Voldemort wouldn’t have been born, so the war wouldn’t have happened, so the prophecy wouldn’t have happened, so Harry and Neville wouldn’t have been singled out, so Alice and Frank wouldn’t have been tortured into insanity, so Neville would have had his parents, and Lily and James wouldn’t have died so harry wouldn’t have had to live with the Dursleys so the whole thing wouldn’t have happened! All because of a love potion.
So funny! not so important though probably the best.
He is so underrated some people don't even who he is
Dumbledores got style
These brothers are amazing
He was super funny he was also good at
Quidicth he should be higher in the list the weasley s were like family to harry and he was like a brother to harry and he is al eats making jokes getting points taking away I love him
They bring fun into the story and open a joke shop. They distract Umbridge so Harry could talk to Sirius. Fred sacrifices himself. Obviously important.
An amazing character who is the reason there ever was a marauders map.
Why is he so low? Can anyone tell me that? I mean his death was one of the most sad and shocking deaths in the whole series. Plus they're Gred and Forge.2 Comments
She proved that it was a basilisk that killed her.
She saw its eyes and then she died.
Oh and Tom Riddle was there but at the time she didn't know who the boy was.
I added him because he connects the entire Weasley family to the Black Family. He marries Victoire Weasley who is Bill's daughter. - harrypotter1
I think she only says like one or two lines in the whole series - severussnape
Sirius would not have escaped without him
Hedwig is Harry's beloved owl. Spoiler Alert! When she died it was one of the most saddest
moments in the whole series.
