Please note that, as popular as this series is, it is a gospel truth that every single one of these characters has a camp that loves them and a camp that hates them. To be perfectly honest, no one cares which camp you belong to; people have differing opinions, and they make the world go 'round.
HOWEVER! This is not the page where you justify your love or hatred for a character; if you really can't go one more minute without doing so, please go to either Paint the Hero Black or Villain Whitewashing Service. This page aims to be completely, totally, and in all other ways neutral.
Also note that you may not support a trope with non-canon examples of a character's behavior or personality, unless it came straight from J. K. Rowling herself. So if you read something about a character in a fanfic, it does not go here. Any instance of that is termed "Fanon", and all examples from fanfiction go there. Fridge Brilliance can go here, but only if it is supported by canon or Word of God.
Which character do these stipulations apply to? Every single one listed on these pages. No exceptions. At all. None. PERIOD.
Are we all clear on that? Good. Now go forth and trope!
The Loads and Loads of Characters now get a page per group.
