15Augusta Longbottom

Augusta Longbottom in Harry Potter

Augusta Longbottom, aka Neville's Gran, aka the crotchety witch who intimidated her grandson out of leading a perfectly normal young life, was the bane of poor Neville's existence. Though there's no doubt that he loved her unconditionally, Augusta existed to A) show the reader that Neville's

parents were out of the picture, B) explain to the reader what happened to Neville's parents, and C) nag, nag, nag, nag, and so on, and so forth.

Though she definitely makes a significant impact on Neville's life, and though you can definitely understand where her overprotectiveness stems from, she's an ultimately stale and unlikable character who would only be fighting for screen time against similar-ish characters like Dolores Umbridge, Argus Filch, and Petunia Dursley (though these characters are admittedly much more hateable).
