#TTT Top Ten HP Characters I Love And Why!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish in 2010 and was moved to Artsy Reader Girl in 2018. Today I will be listing, in no particular order, ten of my favourite characters in Harry Potter! This will contain book and movie spoilers if you somehow have avoided these all this time! 

The Trio

Of course I couldn’t avoid inclding the main trio, Harry for his wit and humour, Ron for his common sense and comedy, and Hermione for her smarts and determination. The three make a great group that bounce off of each other and balnce each other out.


Dobby is chaotic and I love it. He is brilliant in the books and does his absolute best to be helpful to Harry, and it was a crime that he wasn’t in the movies as much. Dobby is so sweet and pure, he just wants to be helpful and I love it.


Sirius is a great character who, immediately after escaping Azkaban goes to commit the murder he was wrongly imprisoned for, and is literally just act first think later. Eventually, he becomes more logical in his advice to Harry in GOF, he is still a very impulsive person, and is still a great character who genuinely loves Harry and wants to protect him, even if it means endangering himself. His character is amazing and his relationship with Remus is even better, they are a great duo.


Remus is a wonderful, pure, sweet character who wants to help Harry and initially has to do so without telling him he would have practically been family. Remus is very selfless and treated badly by so many people – which is so rude becuase he is so sweet! I love hos relationship with Sirius, and his relationship with Tonks is adorable. (though I was a Sirius x Remus shipper buttt….still cute.)


Minerva McGonagall is the best. This woman is a literal tank, she doesn’t out up with anything, she will kick your backside and make it look effortless. This woman is a force to be reckoned with and I love it. She is stern, powerful but also kind and caring. Minerva is a powerhouse and an overall outstanding character who will fight for what is right, regardless of the consequences.


Hagrid is the most pure being in Harry Potter and is incredibly underrated. Hagrid just wants a nice happy life with lots of magical creatures! Hagrid is the first proper parental figure Harry has in his life, the first to truly care about him and his safety and Hagrid goes above and beyond for him. Hagrid is super loyal, fiercly protective, but incredibly kind and gentle. He is one of the best characters in the series and essential to Harry’s story.


How can you not love Luna? Aloof, intelligent and kind, she is so sweet and cares little about what anyone thinks of her. She is a genuine friend to Harry and is a great friend overall. Luna’s character is so happy with who she is and we need more like her!


Neville goes through some of the best character development, and truly proves he belongs in Gryffindor. He is loyal to his friends, braver than he thinks, and stronger than he seems. Neville’s story is a sad and harrowing one and he goes on to show his strength in amazing ways.


Peeves, a true disappointment that he was cut from the movies, is absolutely hilarious. Peeves is a great character, his songs, dances and comments are comedy gold and he is truly a menace for Harry during those nights he went to explore. Peeves is such a great character overall!

Fred and George

The Weasley twins are hilarious, genuine, talented and true to themselves. They are great for comedic relief but also wonderful to Harry and his progress. They are hepful, mischievous and are practically Harry’s brothers. These two wizards are truly clever and are able to bring light to everyone when they really need it.


Snape is not a good guy, but his character is very well done. I don’t like Snape, his behaviour or his beliefs. But, I do like his characters depth and complexity. Snape is forever doing a balancing act between the light and the dark side, of course in the end he sides with the light but he is not Good. His character is cruel and vicious, even to children. Snape’s character is bound to stand out and be one people are drawn to analyse, his character is interesting because he is a bad guy fighting for the good side for poor reasons. Overall, I find his character intriguing so he is up here.

Thats my top ten HP characters I love and why! There are so many more I could have included, I love so many of the characters.

Who is your favourite character? Let me know. Happy Reading BookNerds! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œπŸ“š
