Best Characters from Harry Potter

In all existing fandoms, none stand out quite like the Harry Potter fandom. Harry Potter has moved fans of all ages and nationalities. Throughout the entire timeline there have been countless characters and here’s our list of the best characters from Harry Potter series.


Gilderoy Lockhart

Employed by Dumbledore, was to be a teacher and a mentor for Harry, that was until he lost his memory and exists solely for comic relief. This classy attractive gentleman, full of pomp has made his way into our list for that specific reason.


Nobody said we’d be listing only human characters, even if we did we would still include Hedwig the snowy owl. This might be a pet but J.K Rowling brings a human-like appeal to this character. She has been with Harry gifted by Hagrid on his eleventh birthday. Alas! she was killed by Voldemort as the owl showed up just in time to save her friend, Harry Potter. Mentioning that the entire fanbase went into mourning would be an understatement.

Nymphadora Tonks

Edgy teen, older sister figure and an all-out rocker, Nymphadora Tonks brings about a punk sort of an appeal to a fancy robe clad populace. Yes, she was meant to stand out and stand out she did, which is why we can’t help but include this weird sister member to our list.

Molly Weasley

When you read this name the first thing that comes to your mind would be a mother figure. But don’t be fooled by her affection and warmth, as she too is a witch on her own accord and can pack a punch if needed. If you think about it, she’s always been there for them and she deserves a spot on the top ten picks for the best Harry Potter characters.

George Weasley

Are we including too many Weasleys? Why not, and how can we not include the great George Weasley, the mischief maker and one of the reasons you’ll be laughing while watching Harry Potter. Don’t confuse him with his twin Fred though. He certainly deserves a spot and maybe his brother too.

Alastor “Mad-eye” Moody

This crazy looking fella might fool you into thinking he’s just there for laughs but be warned. Being one of the most powerful Aurors and a revered teacher of the Defense Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts, you can not pass him by. He has a deep hidden affection for his students but shows it through tough love.

Rubeus Hagrid

Yes, we had to and how could we not include Hagrid? You can’t help but love this character and so does everyone that has read the Harry Potter series. Big and burly but with a soft heart and a love for the strangest and the most violent magical creatures. Hagrid is much needed for the honesty and true comradeship that was expressed by J.K. Rowling in her novel.


Yes, he does look weird and fragile, but this little elf has one of the strongest wills you’ll come across. Once a prisoner to the Malfoys, he’s not afraid of anything, stepping in to save Harry’s life countless times. His death was one of the saddest moments of the entire series, thus proving how true friends are ready to take bullets.

Albus Dumbledore

Simply put, he’s the legend. Throughout the series, he’s been a mentor to Harry, also much like a father figure. He was a strict one but with a warm heart. A powerful wizard of his time and the only one Voldemort always feared.

Severus Snape

No, we would not include Harry Potter, who better deserves the number one spot beside Snape. The cold-hearted bully of a teacher’s character transformation throughout the last bit will leave you awestruck.
