Best Hogwarts Houses

The Top Ten
1 Ravenclaw

Thank you for finally noticing and recognizing Ravenclaw as the best house! We are smart, cunning, willing to learn, and they break the rules at least 5X less than all of the other houses.

To all the jealous peasants in the other houses arguing against the brilliance of this house:
Would you please refrain from using your vocal cords against the most wonderful house in all of hogwarts before I have to use my slicing tool towards your throat?
Thank you.

My house, Ravenclaw is, in my not-so-humble opinion the best house because we are accepting, intelligent, creative, quirky, and yes, even crazy. We don't hide our flaws like Gryffindor or Slytherin. We embrace them like the Hufflepuffs.

Yes! Ravenclaw members are open-minded, which is a great quality, and willing to learn. Also, Ravenclaw Common Room is the most stunning of them all.

2 Slytherin

THE BEST HOUSE! I don't get all the prejudice against this house. Our traits weren't evil, cruel and mean, they were determined, ambitious, cunning, witty and intelligent. THERE IS NOTHING BAD ABOUT THAT! And just because the symbol is a snake, snakes are MISUNDERSTOOD ANIMALS, just like this house is misunderstood. I'M a nice person and I'M in Slytherin. I felt perfectly fine with Gryffindor at first but once I saw their attitudes that every single person that gets sorted into Slytherin is bad and that they're better than everyone else, I started to hate the house. Slytherin isn't the evil house as everyone calls it, it's just the house for those who want to work hard and succeed

Slytherin is an awesome house! My favorite after Gryffindor! It should stop getting such a bad rap just because a few bad wizards. Not EVERY bad wizard was in Slytherin. Quirrell was in Ravenclaw and Wormtail was in Gryffindor. Slytherin is a cool house. They're sly, resourceful, determined, cunning, ambitious, and good leaders. They work hard to achieve their goals.

Merlin was in Slytherin. Even Voldemort, even though he was bad, he was
1. The greatest Legilimens in the world.
2. Tore his soul in seven pieces and survived.
3. Only, and only Dumbledore scared him.
4. He could fly without a broomstick, an animal or a magical vehicle.
5. He was a Parselmouth and direct descendent of Salazar Slytherin himself.

Merlin was the greatest wizard who ever lived. Need I say more?

First of all, we have all the most powerful wizards in the world. Unfortunately some like Voldemort and Umbridge used their high ambition in peculiar ways but we also had Snape who was the man with a tragic life that used his heart to protect the woman he loved and her son. Without Slytherin House Harry Potter would be utterly plotless so we are definitely the best house there.

3 Hufflepuff

Although I am a Ravenclaw, I'll try to support my fellow Hogwarts house (and make it sound intellectual, because the smarter you sound/spell, the more convincing it'll seem). Hufflepuffs are said to be kind, and that is a strength we should all embrace, rather than take for mere weakness. Come on, we're better than that! They are also patient, a skill not every human being has learned to master. I, myself, could do with some crash courses on how to be more patient. Plus, they are humble and gentle creatures, and allow others to move at their own pace. I am friends with two Hufflepuffs, and while even they can grow a bit stubborn, they are nice and warm-hearted. J.K. Rowling herself actually stated she is part Hufflepuff. If you're still not convinced, go onto Pottermore and check out the Hufflepuff invitation - It'll change your perspective on being a Hufflepuff. Also, Tonks was one! With Hufflepuffs like Tonks and that one lady who built Hogsmeade you can never go wrong!

I myself am a Ravenclaw, and a proud one but l think Hufflepuff is the best house. All the house founders except Hufflepuff wanted a select group of people who were something all the other but Hufflepuff. Hufflepuff was happy to have anyone because she was kind and knew everyone deserved to be part of something and so she got the kind people. The people who thought in the same way she did.

My mum's a Ravenclaw, my dad's a Ravenclaw and I'm a Ravenclaw, but we all agree that Hufflepuff is the best house. They value kindness and friendship, and are great finders. Gryffindors are show-offs, Slytherins have bad reputations, and Ravenclaws are just intelligent and that's all they value and believe is important. As J.K. Rowling's daughter said, "Everyone should want to be in Hufflepuff,"

I honestly love every Hogwarts house. However, I don't see why everyone keeps hating on us Hufflepuffs. Hufflepuffs are kind, loyal, pure hearted and fun to be around! And you can't wholeheartedly say that Tonks isn't epic.

4 Gryffindor

I mean who wouldn't pick Gryffindor, it was the protagonist's house and the other houses weren't fully detailed in the books as much as Slytherin and Gryffindor.

Go Team Gryffindor! Were awesome and a million times better than Slytherin! Slytherin should be last because who would like an extremely mean teacher as our homeroom?

We rule by emotion,and fight for what we believe is right! Sometimes we aren't rational when we follow our heart, but we're happy, which is the point of life, isn't it?

Gryffindor is the best, it makes no sense that Ravenclaw is first. Lions are better than Eagles even though E.agles aren't that bad
