After Reading This You Will Start Loving Harry Potter's Character Ron Weasley Even More

Ron Weasley has always gotten a lot of undeserved hate from many in the Harry Potter fandom—and it’s totally unfair. Ron may not be as brilliant as Hermione Granger or as brave and selfless as Harry Potter, but he’s still got a lot of great qualities that make him deserving of some admiration. He made out of the dreadful friendzone, after all.

He’s got a great sense of humor


Hermione doesn’t have much of a sense of humor, and Harry can be kind of moody. Ron provides a nice foil for the other two with his witty, offhand jokes. He’s responsible for majority of the funny moments in the books.

 Remember that time he said, “Could I have a look at Uranus too, Lavender?” during Divination class? Or when he said this to Professor Snape to defend Harry’s answer on the difference between Inferi and ghosts:

“Well, what Harry said is the most useful if we’re trying to tell them apart! When we come face to face with one down a dark alley we’re going to be having a shufti to see if it’s solid, aren’t we, we’re not going to be asking, ‘Excuse me, are you the imprint of a departed soul?’”

He’s street smart


While Ron never got top grades in their classes, he isn’t as dumb as people think he is. For one thing, among the three of them he’s the best at wizard chess—and we all know chess requires intelligence.

He’s very logical and a quick thinker, and was the one who told a panicked Hermione what to do when they were attacked by the Devil’s Snare in The Sorcerer’s Stone. He was also the one who figured out how to get something to destroy the Horcruxes—the basilisk fangs in the Chamber of Secrets—after they lost the Sword of Gryffindor in Deathly Hallows.

 Not to mention, Ron became an Auror after the Battle of Hogwarts. Remember, you can’t be an Auror if you’re an idiot. According to Professor McGonagall, being an Auror is a “difficult career path” and “they only take the best.”

He’s extremely loyal and protective of his friends


Sure, there were a few times when Ron wasn’t a very good friend to Harry or Hermione, but even during those times, he never stopped being loyal. He never laughed at Harry when everyone was taunting him with the “POTTER STINKS” badges.

He defended Harry against Seamus Finnigan when the latter called him a liar in Order of the Phoenix. And of course, he was always the first to defend Hermione whenever Draco Malfoy would call her a “filthy Mudblood.”

He’s always willing to help his friends (even if it gets him in trouble)


Remember when Ron (with the help of Fred and George) took Mr. Weasley’s flying Ford Anglia without permission and used it to rescue Harry from the Dursleys, despite the fact that it could get him into trouble with Mrs. Weasley?

And of course, there was that time when Ron accompanied Harry into the Forbidden Forest and into the lair of some gigantic spiders (despite being mortally afraid of spiders) so they could clear Hagrid’s name? Ron is always willing to help out his friends—even if it means breaking rules and getting into trouble.

He’s capable of immense personal growth


Ron had the most personal growth out of all of his friends—except perhaps Neville. Harry, who was always so brave and humble and selfless, barely changed at all, while Hermione went from an uptight and bossy know-it-all to someone a little less intense.

 Ron, however, started out with a lot of flaws—he was insecure, jealous, lazy, and sometimes even mean. But Ron eventually did a lot of growing up—especially in the last book. When Harry became disinterested in looking for Horcruxes, Ron stepped up and became the leader.

 During the last battle at Hogwarts, he was the only one who voiced concern for the house elves’ safety, despite his earlier scorn for Hermione’s S.P.E.W. efforts. By the end of the trio’s journey, we see a Ron who is more confident, more compassionate, and ultimately more mature.

He’s incredibly brave


This goes without saying, really. Ron was placed in Gryffindor, “where dwell the brave at heart”—and there’s a reason for that. Even in the first book, Ron displays his bravery by selflessly sacrificing himself to beat McGonagall’s giant wizard chess game and allowing Harry and Hermione to leave him behind—even though he was injured.

 In the second book, he accompanies Harry into Aragog’s lair despite his arachnophobia and goes with Harry into the Chamber of Secrets to rescue his sister Ginny. He also attempts to shield Harry from Sirius Black (despite having a broken leg) in Prisoner of Azkaban, saying that if Black wanted to kill Harry, he’d have to kill them, too.

And come on, who could forget how he offered himself in place of Hermione when the latter was chosen to be questioned and tortured by Bellatrix Lestrange in Deathly Hallows?

He’s got the BEST catchphrase

“Bloody Hell”

From now on, whenever anyone hears the phrase “bloody hell,” they will most definitely think of Ron Weasley.
