Top Ten Harry Potter Fan Theories

Expect obvious spoilers if you haven't seen movies or books.

The Top Ten

1 The Dursleys were mean because they were under the effect of a Horcrux

That horcrux is Harry of course. - NuMetalManiak

2 The Deathly Hallows refers to Voldemort, Snape, and Harry, and Dumbledore's Death.

One died for power - Voldemort
One died for a lost love - Snape
One greeted Death as an old friend - Harry
And Dumbledore possessed all three hallows, and was greeted by Harry as the "old friend". - NuMetalManiak

3 Dumbledore is a time-traveling version of Ron Weasley

I love the Ronbledore theory!

4 Draco Malfoy is a werewolf

It wasn't that true. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

5 There might have been a war between the Muggles and wizards, with the Muggles being the winner.

Ever wonder how the Ministry of Magic may have been set up? - NuMetalManiak

6 Ginny may have given Harry a love potion

Probably explaining why he was falling for her all of a sudden. - NuMetalManiak

7 The Defense Against the Dark Arts position was cursed by Voldemort

When Voldemort was apparently denied a position, the position was cursed so that it only could have one teacher per year. - NuMetalManiak

I think it was cursed because Voldemort didn't want students learning to go against the dark arts.

Yeah - Cyclne

8 Moaning Myrtle was an urban legend

She was basically a homage to a Japanese urban legend, Hanako, a ghost of a young girl who died in a bathroom and roams the bathroom. - DynastiNoble

9 There are ghosts of former Hogwarts students that died there
10 Harry is the Heir of Gryffindor

The Newcomers

? Dumbledore is gay

The Contenders

11 Harry is now immortal

"Either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives". Harry must've given up his own death upon victory over Voldemort. - NuMetalManiak

Oh this has to be true. For one thing, he already died at Voldemort's hand. For another, he killed Voldemort! I hope Harry lives forever. GO POTTER!

12 Neville wasn't bad at magic, but he was using the wrong wand

He certainly was a whole lot better as the movie progressed, but for a time he of course was that one kid who couldn't get it right. Is it possible his first wand really just wasn't meant for him? - NuMetalManiak

I've heard this one. - PianoQueen

13 Harry never left the cupboard under the stairs

This theory says that Harry created the Wizarding World all in his mind to escape the trauma from the Dursleys. - NuMetalManiak

14 Dramione (Harry Potter) Dramione (Harry Potter)
15 Neville Longbottom is the real hero

He killed Voldemort by destroying the horcrux - The SNAKE - just before it attacked Ron and Hermione in Deathly Hallows. Need I say more

16 Muggles hated The Fat Friar and Sir Nicholas because they used magic so the two were executed
17 Felix Felicis is just a legend

I don't hear this mentioned a lot in the movies, but I guess it was something important to the characters using it. - NuMetalManiak

18 Minerva McGonagall is a death eater
19 Luna is Autistic


20 Seamus Finnigan and Dean Thomas are gay for each other
21 Harry, Ron and Hermione asked to be in Gryffindor
22 Sir Nicholas De Mimsy-Porpington died from blood loss and is revealed to be actually a wizard for making someone grow tusks when a Muggle executioner executed him
23 The ghost roaming the Gryffindor Hall was not even the Fat Friar, but instead an old man who died from hanging named Richard Sleevely

Taken from the Prisoner of Azkaban movie where Richard Sleevely died from hanging for using telekinesis and making portraits talk, move around and stuff. Richard's ghost also can be passing through that one black kid I forgot what his name was. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

24 Dumbledore had a horcrux

Just watch supercarlinbrothers Dumbledore had a horcrux!
