The Best (and Worst) Characters In Harry Potter

Firstly, The Best.

he Best (and Worst) Characters In Harry Potter - Professor McGonnagall

McGonogall is the quintessential queen of sass and a consummate bad ass. She’s also a complete rock throughout the whole series. You can always rely on McGonogall. In a series where most characters have moments of being moany and annoying (Harry, I’m looking at you) McGonogall remains stoic, heroic and classy throughout.

”You look in excellent health to me Potter, so you will excuse me if I don’t let you off your homework today. I assure you that if you do die, you need not hand it in.”



he Best (and Worst) Characters In Harry Potter - Mrs. Weasley

Mrs. Weasley is a totally loving soul. Accepting Harry into her family without a single ounce of hesitation. Despite the fact that the Weasley family is poor she feeds him and houses him without hesitation. The Weasleys are unflappably good people and are the glue that holds the Order together.
Not to mention Mrs. Weasley can also be terrifying. Case in point when she literally exploded Bellatrix into a thousand pieces. Goosebumps.

“Not my daughter you bitch.”


he Best (and Worst) Characters In Harry Potter - Hermione Granger

Hermione is the hero of The Harry Potter Series. Not Potter.
While most characters in this story haphazardly throw themselves into danger only to find themselves wanting, Hermione is constantly over-prepared.
Despite being often underappreciated Hermione remains fiercely loyal and protective of her friends and family.

Just remember, when you’re trying to save the world, make sure to bring the girl who has a bag with an undetectable extension charm full of everything you’ll ever need.

“You foul, loathsome, evil, little cockroach.”


Lastly, The Worst.

he Best (and Worst) Characters In Harry Potter - Cedric Diggory

Cedric Diggory. Other than his smug face and stupid hair there is one main reason I hate Cedric Diggory.

When Harry finds out that the first test in The Goblet of Fire will be to face dragons he immediately finds Cedric and straight up tells him. Couple of good bloke points for Harry there.

But when Cedric figures out the second challenge does he find Harry and tell him? NO. He tells him to go and take a fucking bath. Oh yeah cheers mate. Thanks for helping me solve the riddle with another riddle you pompous arse.

Instead of telling Cedric about the dragons Harry should have just set him on fire and shouted over the screams, “DO YOU GET IT?”


he Best (and Worst) Characters In Harry Potter - Albus Dumbledore

Albus Dumbledore may be powerful and wise but it seems like he’s also kind of a dick too.

In the first book he literally hired a teacher who had Voldemort for a head.

At one point Voldemort is just living in the forest next to the school? And everyone is just chill with that?

He spent a whole year just ignoring and avoiding Harry like a petty teenager.

Draco tried to assassinate him, twice, nearly killing two students and he does nothing.

All I’m saying is McGonogall 2020.
