Many wizarding characters in the Harry Potter world have left a great impression on fans. Among those characters, there are those who possess powerful and terrifying magical abilities, while there are loved ones… not as strong as we think.
Harry Potter fans have ranked the movie’s characters by strength on Ranker, and here are the top 10. Do you agree with this “ranking”?
10. Harry Potter
Even as the main character, he could only stop at the top 10. Originally, when he was in school, Harry never excelled because of his magical ability or his hard work. The fact that he could talk to snakes turned out to be thanks to Voldemort. In return, Harry has admirable courage and compassion – that is also what makes him win over Voldemort.
9. Bellatrix Lestrange
No matter how cruel, this witch is undeniably a formidable opponent. With one hand she murdered Sirius Black, Nymphadora Tonks and countless other innocent people.
8. Sirius Black
Not only possessing outstanding magical abilities, Sirius can also transform into animals easily. As a trusted member of the Order of the Phoenix, Sirius unfortunately suffered a lifetime of bad luck, from being imprisoned, hiding, and then being killed by Bellatrix Lestrange.
7. Remus Lupine
Master Lupine is a character loved by many Harry Potter fans. Not only is he a talented Professor at Hogwarts, he also transforms into a werewolf at every full moon. He is considered one of the best Defense Against the Dark Arts teachers.
6. Geller Grindelwald
Although only mentioned in the Harry Potter parts, but Grindelwald has owned a scary reputation. With the ambition of dominating Muggle and almost “blackening” Dumbledore, this character has enormous power, which is carefully exploited in the Fantastic Beasts film series.
Actor Mads Mikkelsen will take on the role of Grindelwald in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts
5. Hermione Granger
Although she does not have impressive magical abilities by birth, Hermione is “equipped” with a huge amount of knowledge, allowing her to overcome obstacles with ease. As time goes on, Hermione becomes more proficient and stronger in casting spells.
A descendant of Slytherin, Voldemort was born a magical genius. Unfortunately, he used magic with too dark intentions. Owning up to 7 Horcruxes also makes Voldemort too strong, difficult to finish.
3. Minerva McGonagall
Possessing powerful magical powers and keen intellect, Professor McGonagall is one of the most beloved characters. She is extremely proficient in Transfiguration and Animal Transformation. The moment she called the army at Hogwarts was also so cool, making fans fall in love!
2. Severus Snape
Snape was such a brilliant wizard right from Hogwarts – especially in Potions, that he even made up his own recipe. His magical abilities never let anyone down.
1. Albus Dumbledore
Not only possessing the magical ability that is considered the strongest in the wizarding world, Dumbledore is also a “genius of calculation”, every move is carefully considered by him. Although not a very exemplary teacher (deliberately pushing Harry to his death), his ability is unquestionable!
