Top 10 Best Harry Potter Battle Scenes

Harry Potter has some intense and awesome battle scenes, and here are the best.
The Top Ten
1 Harry vs Voldemort - Deathly Hallows Part 2

One of the few things the movie did better than the book. Their duel at the Battle of Hogwarts was mostly words and one little collision of Expelliarmus and Avada Kedavra that lasted about one page maybe. The movie version had them scrambling, countering, even kicking and hitting, until they reached the courtyard and let out that wizard lightning battle that we all love. Also Voldemort's death was much cooler.

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

2 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.

3 Dumbledore vs Voldemort - Order of the Phoenix

Amazing. The two most powerful wizards of the century battle it out at the Ministry. I love it when Dumbledore did that thing with the water. Even in the book, when Dumbledore used the statues, it was still really cool.

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

It was something amazing. The battle showed how brave dumbledore
Was. Love it... The best one...

4 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!

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.

5 Department of Mysteries - Order of the Phoenix

This one is good because it shows the real 6, and has a death. It's got tension, but the main reason is because it outlines the importance of Dumbledore's Army.

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

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

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.

I just thought it was amazingly played out.

7 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

8 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.

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.

Yeah, I agree with keycha1n.They shouldn't have cut that part.

9 Remus vs Sirius - Prisoner of Azkaban
10 McGonagall vs. Snape - Deathly Hallows Pt. 2

This duel was not only a turning point for the battle of Hogwarts, but showed the power of McGonagall. Full of strength and determination. This under-rated duel is definitively one of my favorite scene of the whole series.

This one is particularly interesting because Snape isn't really battling. Snape isn't evil. He's more of defending himself.

The Contenders
11 Draco Malfoy vs Harry Potter - Chamber of Secrets

I like when Malfoy summons a snake and when Lockhart tries to vanish it the snake, instead of vanishing flies 20 feet in the air.

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.

12 Bellatrix Reign at Malfoy Manner - Deathly Hallows Part 1

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

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

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 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.

15 Dumbledore vs Lights - Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone (Beginning Scene)

Um what

Was this put on as a joke

Good idea whoever put this on here

16 Harry vs. The Dementors - Prisoner of Azkaban

How was this not on the list already?

17 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!

18 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
