Most Overrated Harry Potter CharactersAnnaOfArendelle332
The Top Ten
I know Snape turned out to be on the side of good and loyal to Dumbledore but I still don't like him much I know he was bullied by Harry's father James but that doesn't mean he can bully Harry he also bullies Ron Hermione and Neville for no reason at all he also favors Slytherin and gives them special treatment it's stupid and over a dumb grudge and James may have been a jerk and it's not cool to be a Jerk but he at least changed and proved to be a good guy but Snape was just a bully to Harry and his friends he mocked Tonks for being in love with Remus in the 4th book when Malfoy cast a spell on Hermionie's buckteeth he ignored Hermione's problem let Malfoy off scot free and had the absolute gall to take 50 points away from Gryffindor and gave Harry and Ron a detention for standing up for their friend in prisoner of azkaban it's implied that he ratted out Remus for being a werwolf out of spite in order of the phoenix he proved he is a hypocrite he had the gall to invade Harry's ...more
He obsessed over an unhealthy crush for far longer than any reasonable human being should, he bullied kids, he hated on the child of said unhealthy crush, he wouldn't let go of a decades old grudge, but he the best character in the whole series? And his lifelong unhealthy obsession with a woman makes his earlier actions all better how?
Snape's actions are not able to be justified by the fact he was in love with Lily. He still bullied, abused, (ya know the stuff) Harry. Then his TRAGIC PAST was revealed and everyone started fawning over him. Look, you can like him. You can adore him, if you'd like to. I do not believe he made good choices in his life. His grudge lasted for years, and he became all 'I hate Harry Potter' because a girl didn't feel romantically attracted to him. WHAT A RELATABLE CHARACTER, HUH? No. No he's not. - PastelFlowers

I know that Hermione's super smart and all, and I really like her, but she is so popular with everyone and overrated that it is starting to get too cliche too see her on top on best harry potter characters lists. I like Hagrid, Luna, Tonks, Harry, and Hedwig better. Some people ignore Hermione's faults. Like, being too logical. There is some particular scenes in the books where I am very, very, disappointed in Hermione. First, let's see, how rude she was Fleur. Fleur, a beautiful girl, was ridiculed by some jealous girls. Hermione. And Ginny. Fleur was not only beautiful, she was kind, gracious, brave, and loyal. But Hermione got jealous of Fleur and spoke quite harshly and in a rude manner to her. Mean. And when Hermione set birds on Ron... that was pretty terrible. She should have just talked to him, then Lavender in private. And that time in the third book where poor Lavender's poor baby rabbit Binky died and Hermione said to look at it LOGICALLY! Seriously, poor lavender did not ...more
I hate to say this, since Hermione is probably in my top 5 favorite Harry Potter characters, but she's pretty overrated. We get it. Without her, Harry and Ron were virtually screwed. But some people act like she was the only badass girl character and that she's the absolute best in the series. Hermione has a tendency to be somewhat judgmental. She doesn't believe in things unless there are cold, hard facts to back them up. But you know how you get cold, hard facts? They start out as theories and are tested. But Hermione skips over that and only believes in the facts.
Honestly I think we need to look at a character like, and I may have a bias as she is my favorite character but hear me out for a second, Luna Lovegood. Yeah, so she had insane theories and believed in things that didn't always have concrete and tangible evidence, but you know what? She gave things a chance. She had faith in things, and that's how a lot of great ideas start. Well, that and theorizing. And she ...more
Hermione is a genius yes, and I love her but she gets way too much credit. Harry has some great ideas too, unfortunately the movies gave Hermione credit for these ideas and made Harry out to be clueless. Ron is shown to be useless in the movies too, and he is really not. I think he's the most underrated character of them all. Hermione is awesome, but don't hate on Ron and Harry, they are just as awesome.
Hermione! Pah! Bitch! Narrow-minded! Ugly! Bossy! I like Luna, Dumbledore, Fleur, Cho, Tonks, Hagrid, Harry, and Ron better than this bitch.V 16 Comments
I actually hate Harry himself quite a lot. If it wasn't for Hermione and some others like Dumbledore, he wouldn't have made it to the last book. He is slightly arrogant because he was the chosen one, he literally has no good ideas for himself and he has no self control. I just don't like his personality either, except maybe in the first book. Everything he does it purely based on luck and with other people helping him, he has no talent to be honest. If Hermione was the chosen one, Voldemort would be gone by the third book - Aquaturtle
Harry Potter is a great character, but honestly, I think he's kind of a Mary Sue. He is the only one to survive Voldemort and the Avada Kedavra curse, the youngest Quidditch player to join in a century, the master of death, captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team, the "Chosen One", etc. He had a tragic backstory and a lot of characters risked their life for him and some died because of it. He's super famous, and sort of the "leader" in the "Golden Trio" (Harry, Ron, & Hermione). He was a horcrux, which allowed him to read Voldemort's thoughts, and could speak Parseltounge, a rare ability. His parents were also somewhat famous and almost everyone loved them. He was bullied by Draco (another overrated character) mainly because Draco was jealous of him, and most characters treat Harry Potter differently than they would treat anyone else. He has a cool lightning-bolt scar on his forehead, and kind of looks like a typical fantasy-book protagonist if you think ...more
Too overrated. When Ron and Harry went to save Hermione from the troll, he didn't even do anything except for being dumb and almost getting killed. Ron was the one who did the saving. He saved Hermione from being killed and saved Harry from being squished to death by the troll. Yet, it is Harry who gets most of the credit.
Well of course Harry is overrated he is the protagonist he is a talented wizard he proved himself to be a great teacher in order of the phoenix he went through a lot of emotional pain because his loved ones have been dying but managed to get through it all and also defeated Lord Voldemort was still a kind person despite the fact that the horrible Dursleys have raised him and married Ginny Weasley and started a familyV 6 Comments
Nah he was only in two books and mentioned in Order of the Phoenix. Please stop Twilight hate. There is Harry Potter fans that like Twilight, on Twilight message boards we have fans of Harry Potter. Sorry that Edward isn't Dracula.
To be honest I find Cedric rather dull - Goku02
This twerp is more than Ginny, Lupin, and Dumbledore. He is stupid and ugly and only mentioned in two books.
I wonder how much of his overrated-ness is because of his actor also playing the actually even MORE overrated Edward Cullen.V 3 Comments
He ain't even a strong wizard! He only pretends, finding people's weak places and not knowing love or friendship! - Naila
He really needs a nose
Dude, he's one of the most underrated characters... - Tuana123
So being "loyal" is having the idiocy to leave it the first place? Huh.
Filthy Blood Traitor
In the movies it looks like Ron is clueless but he is really not! He wasnt the only person who had ideas you know! ✨
He did absolutely nothing but be born, yet everyone loves and defends him as if he were a real person and a member of their family. And there was no real purpose to his existence, either- that whole "godson" thing wasn't played up that much.
He is so overrated he bullied people but everyone just overlooks that.
Why isn't he higher. Everyone only loves Draco because of his actor, so much they make Ron the evil psychopath and Draco the sweet angel.
I'm sorry, there are a lot of characters on here I like, so... forgive me. Yes, he never wanted to be death eater. Yes, He only helped Voldemort to save him and his family. But... he still is a jerk, bully, and several things I shouldn't say. He didn't make of much of sacrafice, honestly. I didn't see as much growth as there could have been. Certainly not be least favorite character, though. Still ok to me.
What she is so nice she even kills victor krum and hermione granger!
A bullying jerk through and through
She’s so gross and naive
LUNA? HERE? Luna is awesome!
She is overrated and Ginny is overhated.
Luna appeared in the fifth book. A dotty character who the trio didn't really like till the sixth book. Yeah Harry and Luna had a little conversation at the end of the fifth but they became friends in the sixth.
Hermione couldn't stand her in the fifth with her talking about imaginary creatures for example Crumple-Horned Snorkack.
Harry didn't want to know what Nargles where in the fifth book when Luna said mistletoe was infected with them, when he jumped away from it and she said good thinking.
Ron said to Luna I s'pose we're going to ride on the back of the Kacky Snorgle or whatever it is? when they where going to fly to the ministry of magic.
Ginny said Loony Lovegood once but not in a nasty way she said to Neville she's alright and was then polite to Luna.
Why the hell is Cedric Diggory on #3 and Luna Lovegood on #13? It is Luna that EVERYONE citates and talk about. And almost NO ONE talks about Cedric! What do ya'll thinkin' with?!
She had a lot going for her, like being related to several major characters and having a unique and rare ability, but in the end all that mattered was that she had a uterus.
Yeah she did not appear all the time but for the time she appeared and how much people love her she's as overrated as snake and that is something
Just annoying. - Mesel
Unlike snape and hermione, he's kinda meant to be overrated
Sorry but I kinda forgot he existed until the 8th movie
HE IS ANNOYING!
Awww it's the bratty ungrateful cry babies over the script of the next gen. I'm surprised Albus and Scorpius aren't on here.
He is kind and should be higher on the list. He was a great teacher and helps harry.
He helps HArry a looot. he's a genius
