Most Important Harry Potter Characters
The Top Ten
Well, OBVIOUSLY! Harry is the main character the series is even called HARRY POTTER!
Really confused about this list. Of course Harry's important, he's the main character for goodness sakes. All characters are important! I checked the rest of this list and lots of important characters like Remus, Tonks and Molly Weasley. They even put Voldemort twice!
Harrys The most important and greatest character of all time. He is REALLY BRAVE and he wasn't afraid to die if it meant being one step closer to killing Voldemort. He would give up his life for his friends. Without Harry Voldemort would still be destroying everything as no one has ever had enough courage to face and survive Voldemort the number of times he's done. He survived Voldemort when he was only 14.FOURTEEN! And fully capable adult aurors or order members couldn't possibly face him and survive. Not even Dumbledore could have survived Voldemort at 14.
Okay. Let's get real. I don't say Harry's the best (that's my opinion) but he is the most important. Isn't that uh... obvious? The series is called Harry Potter. Without him it would be "Quirinus Quirrell and The Philosophers Stone" Or "The Dursleys and The Trip to The Zoo"V 41 Comments
Now we all know that snape was the one who told harry the meaning of love faith and most of all faith he saved him in part one made him feel like a man in part 2 he helped harry in part 4 he saved his life in part 5 and he also told harry in part 6 that I'm sorry but I have to do this which he found out in deadly hallows part 2 that's how much he did according to me
He's the best, for me
The story would not be possible without him
He was so powerful, so loving, and he help Harry Potter, he fought for others, he sacrificed his life got others,he guarded others, I don’t see why he’s number 2 when he’s number 1V 17 Comments
I think that Hermione should at LEAST be 2nd and that for her to be 5th is NOT tolerant. She helped Harry in EVERY story except she always stays behind to help the poorly. If only she could've come along to help Harry with his spells. If she had, she wouldn't've been as much use, I know that, but still.
No, there are more important characters like Voldemort and Snape. She's very useful and important though. - PopularStarfish
Hermione is amazing! I KNOW the books are Harry Potter, but without Hermione the end would have been the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's stone, because the books would have been Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley: Let's see how many times they fail! Hermoine taught us that life is about more than smarts, it's about friendship and Bravery. She's truly the most important character.
Hermione should be before Severus, Severus should switch places with Hermione, and Dumbledore comes after Hermione. Hermione's so important for being a ultimate role model and saving Harry and Ron countless times.
I am actually like hermioneV 23 Comments
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 knows all... even old Voldy admits it. "You are as omniscient as ever." The whole series was literally his giant master plan (admittedly not all parts of it) to defeat Voldemort. A powerful man, with a couple of weaknesses. A strangely pleasing sense of humor as well.
Harry would be dead before book 2 if there was no dumbledore! His death makes him 3 times as important!
The best characterV 3 Comments
Voldemort is the important but not as much as harry potter
Voldemort should be higher up I mean the entire plot of all the books basically revolves around him and Harry - astrobabe94
Voldemort should've been #2, this whole series can't even exist without him.
He'd probably the 2nd most important.V 17 Comments
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.
Without Ron, Hermione would have been killed by the troll and harry... he would have been dead a million times over if Ron hadn't had his back like the loyal, brave and loving friend he is.
You only need to read Goblet of Fire during the Second Task to find out that he's the most important person in the world to Harry. I think that is saying something
Ron deserves number 3. I mean, he's just as important as the others.V 14 Comments
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!
He is not number one! MY FATHER WILL HEAR ABOUT THIS! Without Draco, Harry would have had no real threat at school
Best character development
Goes from "stuck up rich pure blood" to "I actually have feelings and I do care about Potter in a way"
He could have made so much destruction if he was truly evilV 11 Comments
Such an important character. He was the only family Harry had left and was like a father to him.
Oh come on let's be sirius guys, black's obviously the best!
Best survivor ever
Sirius and rubeus hagrid (aas well as a dumbledore) are the most important figures to harry potter, sirius black is probably harry potter's favourite person and a guy to follow, hagrid is pretty much his 2nd father and harry would do anything for him and hagrid would do anything for him vice whateverV 5 Comments
HE SAVED HARRY FROM UTTER EMBARESSMENT Remember when Harry was going to buy that golden cauldron? Imagine if he walked into class with a golden cauldron while everyone else had normal ones. And Snape would have another thing to bully him about. Same with Malfoy.
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.
'Harry, yer a wizard.' Hagrid saves the day!
He is the best.V 11 Comments
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 voldermot
VOLDEMORT TWICE! WHAT ABOUT GINNY, MCGONAGAL AND THE WEASLEY TWINS!
Not to mention the fact that he stood up to Voldemort in the 7th movie and got everyone to their senses.
Neville should be higher! He helped harry in the 4th movie
He helps and listens to harry even if harry doesn't ask him
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
What the hell if Lily hadn't died for Harry Voldemort would be alive and Harry dead
Lily Potter gave birth to Harry, the main character, she DIED for him so that he would live, and Snape would never have helped him if he weren’t her son, because he secretly loved her, and hated James.
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 LIST
Exactly! It should go Harry, Hermione, Ron, Ginny
Ginny is like the 4 she made book 2 and 19 years later
She is a great person, though I love Luna, Hagrid, and Hermione more.V 9 Comments
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 lad
DOBBY IS A FREE ELF
He ain't the most important, but at least now somebody will see my post.
Here is my most important list
6.Ron and Hermione
7.DOBBY IS A FREE ELF YO
9. I dunno Frodo Baggins anyone?
Luna should be, like, number 2.
We fly of course
Luna is hilarious why wasn't she on this list before
Why is dudley n this list?
She is awesome! You should vote for her if not the nargles will get ya.V 2 Comments
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 showed Harry how you get on to nine3/4
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
If it hadn't been for them their would be no Harry Potter!
Love you Bella e
Why is he down here! you gotta be kidding
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)
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.
Shes on here twice? Or is this like one of the daughters :I
I think they mean Charlie right well actually I know it is
How is he even important
TR0LL IN THE DUNGEON!
Comment less idiot regulus
Professor slug horn
He turned out good at the end... I guess he really does love Harry. - AnnaOfArendelle332
Best character enough said
Shut up dudley is mixed
Fat, rude, stupid, lazy boy. Who likes him? HOW is he the best character?!? You people are idiots!V 2 Comments
These brothers are amazing
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.
He should be with George
How is Fred after Charlie
Charlie's not even in the movies
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.
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
