IGN’s Top 25 Harry Potter Characters

In honor of the release of the sixth film in the Harry Potter franchise, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, IGN has picked the top 25 characters from the Potter universe.

In describing their #21 pick, Nymphadora Tonks—“Don’t call me Nymphadora!”—IGN writes, “Most of the wizards we see in Harry Potter are either experienced adults – often professors of course – or the underage students who are the focus of the series. This helps make Tonks a refreshing change of pace, as she represents a young adult wizard – someone who’s completed all of her training, but still has the brash, energetic attitude of youth.”

She’s certainly one of my favorites, and I think she should probably be a bit higher (I’d knock #16, Cho Chang, down a few pegs to make that possible). But, other than that, I think IGN has got the list pretty much dead-on. How about you?
