Harry Potter Top Ten List Part 5

We’re about to embark on the final five, but let’s take a moment to get to get caught up.  The top ten least favourite characters are as follows:

7. Pansy Parkinson
8. Dolores Jane Umbridge
9. Severus Snape
10. Tom Marvolo Riddle

The top ten most favourite characters are as follows:

7. Molly Weasley
8. Bellatrix Lestrange
9. Luna Lovegood
10. Harry Potter

The following are my most favourite and least favourite character, but we’re at six out of ten.  You can reference the rest of the list using the tags at the bottom for ‘harry potter.’ 

# 6 Least Favourite Character: Dean Thomas

I have purely selfish reasons for not liking Dean Thomas and it has nothing to do with him as a person, so much as his dating Ginny when Harry wasn’t totally sure he liked her or not.  I know, it is childish.  But he was never going to be good enough for her and we all knew it.

I have to give Dean credit for prompting Harry to make a move, if not for that, and Harry cursing Draco and getting banned from the last match, things might have gone on much more slowly.

I realise Dean is actually on the side of ‘good,’ but I will always see him as the one that almost messed with the Ginny/Harry ship that we’ve all come to love.

# 6 Favourite Character: Minerva McGonagall

You can’t say enough about Professor McGonagall.  As the head of Gryffindor house, she is the type of person you want to have to report to.  She was always fair in her punishment, despite what it might have felt like at the time.  She, like Mrs. Weasley, played a pivotal role in our hero’s life as well.

I think the things I remember most from McGonagall are her drafting Harry for the Quidditch team and for letting Peeves take her crutch to beat Umbridge with in Order of the Phoenix.  If not for Voldemort, I’d like to think that she would have taken over as head mistress of the school, as is so often seen in fan fiction placed after the battle.
