Top Ten Most Underrated Harry Potter Characters

The Top Ten

1 Draco Malfoy 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.

I love Draco Malfoy. He is awesome and innocent. I think he was the boy who didn't have a choice.

LOVE this character. In my humble opinion he wasn't in the book/movies enough.

His childhood life until Hogwarts should've been revealed in canon.

Seriously do you like a person who despised muggle-borns?! I seriously hate this boy and I am glad the sorting hat placed him in Slytherin. PURE SLYTHERIN please BECAUSE I AM HALF! If he really wanted to offer Harry as friend, find a better way to say it! - LannaLau

Hagrid was the most underrated character, no contest. He was the father figure Harry never had, not Sirius. He cared about Harry and brought him a birthday cake when he first met him. He took Harry to Diagon Alley for the first time to get his books and he bought him his owl. He sent Hedwig to give Harry an invitation to his cabin instead of asking him personally so Harry would get mail and not feel left out. He always stuck up for Harry, and he's the real hero. And nobody talks about how he spend time in AZKABAN. Azkaban prison drains the life out of people and makes them crazy, but when Hagrid got out, he was still kind and his same old self. That's true strength. Without a doubt, Hadrig is the most underrated character in the Harry Potter series.

Hagrid is my favourite teacher! He’s a half giant, but some giants can be friendly. Madam Maxime misunderstood him. - LannaLau

Everyone says the only father figure Harry had was Sirius.. WHAT ABOUT HAGRID?

-he was the one to take Harry from his ruined house to his only family Alive
-He was the one to tell Harry about Magic
- he always cared about Harry
-he drank Tea With Harry chatting
- when Harry is With Dumbledore about more people being petrified he runs in saying IT wasnt Harry telling he would say the same to the ministry
- He was the one to fly With Harry to the Burrow With the order of the Phoenix
-he was forced to see Harry get 'killed' tears in his eyes he carried Harry back to hogwarts

Really? Sirius was the only father figure Harry had?

Can we just take a minute to appreciate Hagrid? I know Ron and Hedwig are also underappreciated but I choose Hagrid.

-He took Harry to Dumbledore and was gentle as ever with baby Harry
-Cried when Harry had to be left with the Dursleys
-Brought Harry cake for his 11th birthday
-Bought him Hedwig for starting at Hogwarts
-Asked all of Lily and James's friends for pictures for a photo album for Harry
-Cheered him on at every Quidditch match
-Invited him to tea at least once a week with Ron and Hermione
-Cares very much about Harry's safety and well-being
-Yells for Harry to go back when he comes to sacrifice himself
-Throws a "Support Harry Potter" party
-Cries when he sees Harry 'dead'
-is genuinley sad- doesn't care that Voldemort might 'win', only thinks of

In my opinion Wormtail is the most underrated character, he receive little attention in the books, he receive any attention in fanfics, he is hated and massacred by fandom, But deep down, Wormtail is a interesting character because he is a traitor, and traitors are always fascinating to be explored in depth - Palmeiras
