Top Ten Greatest Harry Potter Wizards and Witches

The most cleverest and most powerful wizards and witches in Harry Potter.

The Top Ten

1 Harry Potter Harry Potter Harry James Potter is the title character of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The majority of the books' plot covers seven years in the life of the orphan Potter, who, on his eleventh birthday, learns he is a wizard.

Um, he should be 1 he defeated VOLDEMORT

He is awesome I think he should trump Voldemort because of the fact he defeated him... And not to mention was the only person EVER to survive the killing curse twice

Seriously! 5? He is the main character. His name is on the stinking title! How could voldemort be a more powerful wizard if harry kills him? And how can dumbledore be more powerful if he dies by severus snape? HOW?

Harry is only wizard who lived voldemord atack. I'm polish so sorry of errors.

2 Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore

He could send death eaters flying to Big Ben with just a tap on his wand. He also had great style.

He was a brave brave man. He planned his own death with severus snap. He is kind, good, and rarely gets angry.
He also defeated grindlewald

He OWNED the elder wand, yes, Voldemort, I hope you are listening to this. He OWNED It, not Steal it.

I don't get it Voldemort and harry potter are crap compared to grindelwald and dumbledore

3 Lord Voldemort Lord Voldemort Lord Voldemort is a fictional character and the central main antagonist in J. K. Rowling's series of Harry Potter novels. Voldemort first appeared in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, which was released in 1997.

Voldemort was so great & powerful, nobody wanted to mention him by name.

Although he's evil, Voldemort was so powerful that people didn't even have the courage to call him by his name

A powerful and evil wizard who try's to kill harry but failed it HAHA!

Peeves is made because he made a joke on voldemort

4 Minerva McGonagall Minerva McGonagall

I'm happy McGonagall didn't die because she protected Harry and the rest of Hogwarts when Snape tried to attack (who was actually not bad but still, he tried to kill harry).

By far the best...

She defended Hogwarts and helped harry kindly. - thanulasith

She was amazing I LOVED HER from the start

5 Lily Evans

Come on people she's pretty great and kinda hot

6 James Potter

Without James there would be no Harry Potter ( hence the fact he is his father) - AnnaOfArendelle332

7 Hermione Granger Hermione Granger

Hermione is the best why isn't she first? I've got her amazingly pretty wand!

Clever and smart. Without her Harry and Ron would have died multiple times.

Hermione is awesome, guys. Come on, just because you're boys it doesn't mean you can't like Hermione. I mean, she's almost the smartest witch in Harry Potter. AND she's really hot. Even VIKTOR KRUM, the BEST seeker in the world has a crush on her. And THAT, for on is AMAZING.

I love hermione is so pretty and has impressed all of her teachers she needs to be 2

8 Sirius Black Sirius Black

He was able to almost kill snape, so he should at least be 5th

He is a great brave wizard

He was an Animagus. Any thing Dumbledore was not able to achieve.

He should be first
Sirius is the best and the most powerful character in the whole series
I get that Harry is the main character, but the only reason he was able to do anything was because he had help from someone else or he was just plain lucky.
Sorcerers Stone: he wouldn't have even got to quirrell without Ron and hermione
Chamber of secrets: HE NEEDED A BIRD! HIS WHOLE LIFE DEPENDED ON A BIRD! What's more to say?
Prisoner of Azkaban was mostly about sirius --- Harry didn't even do anything heroic
Goblet of fire: moody/barty crouch jr was the one who helped him through all the tasks. He practically told him how to get past the dragon. He told dobby about the gillyweed who then told Harry. And he literally blasted everything out of Harry's was in the maze. It was just pure luck that his wand connected with voldemort's. It had nothing to do with his skill
Order of the Phoenix: don't even get me started on this one... he loses his temper so quickly and I blame him ...more

9 Ron Weasley Ron Weasley Ronald Bilius "Ron" Weasley is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. His first appearance was in the first book of the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as the best friend of Harry Potter and Hermione Granger.

He became a very powerful wizard

Ron was the best friend. He may not have been as smart as Hermione or as brave as Harry but he was a great friend. All friendships have rows, and honestly Ron was just scared of the outside world. His loving mother and father kept him shielded from the darkness of the world while on his eleventh birthday Hagrid had to tell Harry his parents were murdered

Also in First Year Ron wrote to Molly and Arthur asking for presents for Harry cause he had said he didn't get any, get my point?

10 Severus Snape Severus Snape Severus Snape is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. He is characterised as a person of great complexity, whose coldly sarcastic and controlled exterior conceals deep emotions and anguish.

He protected Harry his whole life. Remained in love with Lily til he died. Fooled Voldemort. Dumbledore trusted him above all others (except for Harry). By far the bravest wizard. Never once asked for praise. A true hero.

The feelings when found out truth about his past.

The bravest man I've ever known - Harry Potter

Really number 10 he could be at number 4 after grindelwald - NikkoJakeDeJesus

The Contenders

11 Poopy McPooperson

What the heck? His name is Poopy

Yes I voted for Mr. McPooperson. Sometimes you're just in a Poopy kinda mood. He is just the poopiest little turd that was ever flushed. He's gotten pretty high up though for a fake lol. Makes you feel bad for all the characters that were just not Poopy enough to be above him in the polls. - NerdBunny

Who is this fake character his name is so hillarious though - simpsondude
