30 Day Character Challenge: Day 27

Hello everyone and welcome to the near end!!! If you can’t tell, I’m happy it’s almost over cause it has been a very hard challenge for me to get through.

27. An overrated character

I’m going to get killed for this one, probably. I’m sorry in advance.

I love Harry Potter, but in terms of being overrated, he is definitely it. I know, I know. He is the person the whole book series and movie franchise is about, but we can’t deny that he’s almost useless (ALMOST, people).

I mean, he’s always the one to say the day, but who’s the brains behind all of it? Hermione Granger. Who tells him when he’s being dumb? Hermione Granger. Who stops him from getting himself killed? Hermione Granger.

So in reality, we should be thanking Hermione for keeping his stupid sorry ass alive for 7 books. Honestly, we kinda owe it all to her.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Harry, but he is kinda overrated considering he gets all the glory when he only almost gets himself killed every book.

    I completely get your point. I love Harry Potter, character, books and films but as a character he owes so much to other characters. He gets most of the credit for the successes even if others help him get there without as much recognition.

        It’s like I also realise that it wouldn’t happen without Harry at least not in the timeline where Harry is the boy who lived. Had it been someone else targeted then that changes things again. But as much as I love Harry I also realise he needs a lot of help to actually succeed. I think that’s a good thing as it shows he has weaknesses and despite being the boy who lived he is still a normal boy who needs the support of friends etc. In terms of how he is always seen as the best character that’s where I think people maybe need to see the whole thing rather than just he is the main character and the centre of the story and sometimes the other characters are actually better in some ways and a more valuable character with interesting developments along the way.
