Overrated Harry Potter Couples

Not all of these are bad, they just get a lot of love from the fandom

The Top Ten

1 Draco and Hermione

It doesn't make any sense, I was really surprised to see that was so popular. I suppose that the fans think of the characters with look of the actors and they like pairing them. Because I'm unable to find another reason to understand its popularity.

I have no idea why anyone would even like this pairing.

Dramione is the worst Harry Potter couple, but for some reason, people love it.

This is a odd couple but why SO many people like it? - AshleyChang

2 Draco and Harry

Rivals do not make good lovers. Why this so hard for everyone to understand?

But I actually ship this - KatyMartinezAndTheDiamonds

3 Harry and Hermione

"So painfully made for each other" my foot! They just happen to be the main hero and the most prominent character of the opposite gender, and as usual short-sighted fans always automatically think there should be romantic involvement even with nothing to go on or reasons (including but not limited to the characters outright expressing lack of interest) given within the context of the medium not to. See also Ryu and Chun-Li from Street Fighter and Ralph and Vanellope from Wreck-It Ralph.

It's stupid when people are saying that they should ended up together and Harry and Hermione don't even have romantic feelings for each other

Harry and Hermione are FRIENDS. They are NOT together.

It is like shipping Luke with Leia

4 Snape and Lily
5 Sirius and Remus

I don't get why people would see them as romantic, especially when Remus was in a relationship with Tonks - Felina94

6 Ron and Hermione

Can't stand reading Romione... Bleh.

BEST COUPLE EVER! OTP - KatyMartinezAndTheDiamonds

7 Harry and Ginny

Harry and Ginny are not overrated, I don't see much hype about this pairing.

I ship them

8 Dumbledore and Grindewald

Wouldn't hate it so much if it wasn't Rowling's flagrant "see see gay couple I'm so inclusive". If she were really so inclusive, she would've developed this or any other same-gender pairing better- and within the actual books, not the interviews and junk she's been doing to keep desperately in the public eye.

This pairing just reeks of tokenism, sorry.

9 Tonks and Lupin

Why isn't this higher? It figuratively and literally KILLED two perfectly good characters! And for what? A stupid, worthless baby who was only born so Harry could promise to be the "perfect godfather" his own godfather wasn't (never mind it was for reasons beyond said godfather's control, also Harry's opinion of said godfather had inexplicably taken a nosedive since the godfather's death).

In response to "especially when Remus was in a relationship with Tonks" as an argument against another Remus pairing: He was in an UNHAPPY relationship with Tonks that just felt forced and tacked-on. Also, the mere fact that they even CONCEIVED, let alone Remus's annoyingly cloyingly over-the-top reaction to the birth is so obviously forced it hurts.

10 Scorpious and Albus

Scorpions loves Rose

Listen people we didn't even meet Scorpious except in The Cursed Child and he didn't even seem remotely gay
Albus maybe but I mean just because someone is good friends with someone else doesn't mean they have to date

don't get me wrong I'm bi and gender fluid so #lgbt+

The Contenders

11 Percy Weasley and Oliver Wood

This isn't even a popular couple. - RisingMoon

12 Neville and Luna

They don't even interact in the books and have 1 mediocre scene together. How did this pairing get popular?

13 James and Lily

They are the PERFECT couple! - AshleyChang

14 Bill and Fleur

Well they are fine together - AshleyChang

15 Ginny and Luna
16 Harry and Cho
17 Albus Potter and Delphi Riddle
18 Lily and Scorpius
19 Lily and Lysander

Who is Lysander - AshleyChang

20 Lorcan and Lily
21 Polly Chapman and James Sirius Potter
22 Polly Chapman and Albus Potter
23 Hermione and Snape
24 Harry and Delphini
25 Teddy and Lily Luna Potter
26 Luna and Ron
27 Neville and Ginny
28 Harry and Voldemort
29 Scorpius and Rose

They seem like the typical “Romeo ad Juliet except they don’t die” kind of people

“Best friend falls in love with best friend! It’s like Ron and Hermione” NO. Rose hates him because she’s prejudiced and doesn’t give him a chance. The scriptwriters made it seem pushy
