Best Harry Potter Battle Scenes

Harry Potter has some intense and awesome battle scenes and here are the best. Also I am excluding scenes like the expecto patrotum in POA because I am talking about duels.

The Top Ten

1 Dumbledore vs Voldemort - Order of the Phoenix

It's a bad ass and intense battle and so cool. Imagine Gandalf vs Voldemort. - idontknow

The two greatest wizards of all time showdown in a duel with experienced spells and brisk wand movements.

Very nice and with intense magic - Cyclne

That was a cool battle

2 Harry vs Voldemort - Deathly Hallows Part 2

The super intense, climatic battle which will end the franchise and its just the most intense scene of the franchise. - idontknow

Intense, it's amazing but it was disgusting to see Voldemort deform

I love how Harry has a good talk with Voldemort before he "kills" him.

This is probably the most important, and the best. But I feel Dumbledore vs. Voldemort was the COOLEST. I mean, Harry only disarms Voldemort and uses Avada Kedavra

3 Battling the Basilisk - Chamber of Secrets

Four of the books are tied for my favorite, and three movies, but The Chamber Of Secrets was always a book I came back to again and again (maybe because its one of the ones I own), and so is the movie. This scene is gory, but epic! - keycha1n

The confrontation of Tom Riddle and brings this massive thing and Harry has a sword battling the Basilisk which looks like a water dragon. I'm in. - idontknow

Epic scene

4 Department of Mysteries - Order of the Phoenix

Much better than any other the first ranking is only two people
The second ranking is to slow the third is too boring

This is the cool battle. Good vs Evil, Light vs Dark, Death eaters and the order! This one is the best!

This might be my favorite because I love the whole order and how powerful they are

Kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, book and movie. Super cool

5 Draco Malfoy vs Harry Potter - Chamber of Secrets

I like when Malfoy summons the snake at Harry then when Lockhart tries to vanish it it just gets flung 20 feet in the air.

6 Harry vs Voldemort - Goblet of Fire

The first encounter and fight (I think) between Harry and Voldemort and it also leads to the heart breaking scene of when Cedric Father finds his son dead. - idontknow

Not exactly the first meeting because sometimes they had found but in this Voldemort is on its way of life

I just thought it was amazingly played out.

7 Draco vs Harry - Half Blood Prince

I didn't like how the movie cur out the part when harry was apologizing and in hysterics. It makes it seem more like he intended to hurt Malfoy, which he didn't. - keycha1n

Draco Malfoy gave the best performance in this film and this when Harry almost killed Draco and he was on the floor with blood, I was sad. - idontknow

The music that played when snape was heaing up draco up the feels. - HeavyDonkeyKong

8 Battle of the Seven Potters - Deathly Hallows Part 1

Its an intense, exciting and fun battle and they fly. But so sad because Hedwig dies. - idontknow

9 Remus vs Sirius - Prisoner of Azkaban

Sirius is not a werewolf

That battle of dogs was great

2 Werewolves fighting each other is awesome, you HEAR THAT TWILIGHT? THIS IS AWESOMENESS. TWILIGHT IS BLUEHH. - idontknow

10 Bellatrix Reign at Malfoy Manner - Deathly Hallows Part 1

That scene when Bellatrix was torturing Hermione and bough back Dobby and he is awesome, too bad he dies. - idontknow

"Dobby has no master! Dobby is A FREE ELF! " - HeavyDonkeyKong

Dobby says this is the best because Dobby shows them baddies who's boss sir. But Dobby is a sad elf sir because Dobby dies sir. But Dobby dies a free elf sir so that is good sir.
Dobby would like to say thank you to Mollly Weasley sir for the great deed she didsir

The Contenders

11 Death Eaters Attack the Burrow - Half Blood Prince

I love it when Bellatrix starts mocking Harry and when the Burrow got burned, stuff got real. - idontknow

12 Molly Weasley vs. Bellatrix Lestrange - Deathly Hallows Part 2

I loved this, because I never thought that Molly would win this fight while watching it for the first time... I'm glad she finally got a moment in the spotlight.

Molly and Bellatrix dueled and Molly won she Killed Bellatrix because Bellatrix tried to kill Ginny with the killing curse

Dude this was special!

Awesome battle not my daughter you bitch

13 Battling Nagini - Deathly Hallows Part 1

This may have been one of the shortest in the series, but the build-up towards it, the choreography, the score and the sheer creativity of it was terrific. I personally found it terrifying to watch and to contemplate, and I've read the book so I knew what was going to happen, and it was still terrifying. It was so fast-paced, it made it almost incredible that a snake would be badass enough to hide inside a human being, calculatively lure two wizards into a trap and then FIGHT THEM OFF so easily. You think that the battle with the Basilisk was cool, but this fight was the true representation of the creative genius that is JK Rowling

14 Courtyard Battle - Deathly Hallows Part 2

This battle is the best in the franchise. The trio used what they learned to fight their way through the courtyard, escaping giants and fighting dementors. Also the score is beautiful!

15 Harry vs. Voldemort - Deathly Hallows Pt.2 (Forbidden Forest

This isn't the best battle, it wasn't even really a battle, but it was okay, I guess
