Harry Potter books and movies have mostly revolved around Harry, Ron and Hermoine and their adventures in the wizarding world. Although Dumbledore, Hagrid, and Snape have received a considerable amount of importance along with our three favorite Hogwarts students in major Harry Potter theories, there are several characters that were significantly important for the story but have been overlooked. Let us take a look at some of the most underrated Harry Potter characters.
Most Underrated Harry Potter Characters:
1. Draco Malfoy
The character that tops this list of various underrated Harry Potter characters is Draco Malfoy. I know, you must be thinking that I am going to defend this jerk. No doubt, he was a selfish racist. But considering how he was gradually able to let go of the prejudice he was raised in was remarkable! Of course, he isn’t much of a secret hero. Still, he deserves some credit.

2. Ernie MacMillan
The second name on this list of most underrated Harry Potter characters is Ernie MacMillan. She had an important role to play, especially in the books as we watched him grow up along with our favorite trio. Even though he thought that Harry is a dark wizard in The Chamber Of Secrets, he still deserves some credit. He has never been much of a friend to anyone but he fought for the good ones against the darkness. He joined Dumbledore’s army and fought bravely in the Battle of Hogwarts.
3. Ginny Weasley
Ginny Weasley is a remarkable character who is underrated both in the books as well as the movies. She was always taken for granted before Ron and Harry realized how talented she was. She is both smart and brave. She joined Dumbledore’s army to fight against the darkness at the Battle of Hogwarts. She even survived when she was possessed by a Horcrux. This proves that Ginny is obviously a lot more than just the youngest member of the Weasley family.
4. Fleur Delacour
Fans of the book series and movies definitely don’t hate her but she is for sure one of the most underrated Harry Potter characters ever. She was among the champions of the Triwizard Tournament. She is obviously more than just an academically sound and well-read wizard. Her loyalty is what makes her unique. She is fierce, brave and deserves much appreciation than she actually gets. A few weeks before her wedding was about to take place she actually risked her life. She fooled the death eaters by disguising as Harry Potter.
5. Remus Lupin
Remus Lupin, first appeared in Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban, was by far the best defense against the dark arts teacher at Hogwarts. He was a savior to Harry. Even though he had an angst over his status as a werewolf and enabled the James and Sirius’ bullying, he was definitely an amazing character. Flashier Marauders often overshadowed him but he always deserved more credit than he ever got by fans.
