Top 10 Most Powerful Witches and Wizards From Harry Potter

The Top Ten Most Powerful Witches and Wizards From Harry Potter

1 Albus Dumbledore Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.

Not only is he a great wizard, but we must look at one important fact! Some time after Dumbledore's sister died, he stopped looking for power! He knew that power was his weakness! If he continued to gain more power, along with the elder wand, he would have been with out a doubt the most powerful wizard in History. He never used magic to hurt people his sisters death, he instead became a teacher and was able to become the wizard he is and always will be. Voldemort at full power could only bring Dumbledore to a stale mate. Dumbledore never tried to defeat him, because he Knew that it was HARRY who must defeat him. Other wise, our beloved headmaster was kind, loving, yes flawed, great, powerful, wise, and always Supreme to all other wizards of his time.

Dumbledore defeated Grindelwald, who had the Elder Wand. Nobody can defeat the owner of the Elder Wand. Dumbledore did.

"The only one Voldemort ever feared"...and voldemort is soo powerful..

He has the elder wand and he stands up to voldemort until Voldemort retreats. He protects Harry in all the ways that he can until his death.
Most importantely, he is the only person that Voldemort is afraid of.

2 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 is the most powerful wizard, possibly ever. Dumbledore is the more versatile, well-rounded, and intelligent wizard. He knows magic that Voldemort can not fathom due to relative (relative to Dumbledore) inexperience and character flaws. Knowledge, experience, versatility, and intelligence are great advantages to have but they are not the same thing as power. Voldemort's advantage in raw power is the only reason Dumbledore, with his many advantages including the elder wand, could not outright defeat Voldemort in the duel in the ministry atrium.

I love Dumbledore and hate Voldemort, but I wont lie, Voldemort is the most powerful wizard. He sure as hell knows what he's doing. He doesn't just throw out some random spells. He thinks quick and his moves are never wrong. I am aware that Dumbledore defeated the dark wizard Grindewald, but even he admits that voldemort is stronger. He has great strategic skill. When he was a kid, he was evil but was still one of the best boys at hogwarts and even fooled Slughorn. He fooled everyone. He can keep in the shadows and has great persuasion skills. The horcrux idea, although very disturbing and terrible, was genius on his part. He fooled harry in chamber of secrets and nearly killed him by taking control of the basilisk. In conclusion, he is smart, powerful and knows what he's doing

I think Lord voldemort is the most powerful wizard from harry potter because Albus stated and claimed that even his most powerful spell, charm, incantation etc will not effect voldemort when he turn to full power

Albus Dumbledore, even with his Elder Wand, didn't dare challenge Voldemort to a duel unlike Grindelwald's case. If Dumbledore could defeat Voldemort with his Elder wand as he did to Grindelwald, surely people would not have to suffer this much in Voldemort's hands. During their duel at Ministry of Magic, Dumbledore would have been dead, had it not been for Fawkes the phoenix that it swallowed one death -curse through his beak. Voldemort retreated from the duel more because he understood that defeating a prodigious skilled-wizard like Dumbledore is time consuming. Voldemort did not have much time in his hand specially being at Ministry of Magic then the most dangerous place for him without the risk of revealing homself! Remember? The duel between Dumbledore and Grindelwald lasted for several hours.

3 Gellert Grindelwald

Probably not more powerful than Dumbledore, though what really happened in their duel in 1945 is still unclear. Definitely more powerful than Voldemort. His reign was for about 20+ years, whereas Voldemort was only at the height of his power about 10, 14 years. He knew more magic than Tom, had a better understanding of magic, and even lived longer than Voldemort. He mastered the Elder Wand, didn't harm his soul once, never underestimated the power of love, and, last but not least, was defeated by the greatest wizard of the age, not a seventeen year old who hadn't even finished school.

If you take away Voldemort's Horcruxes, then one could argue that Grindelwald is almost if not just as powerful as Voldemort. Yes, he had the Elder Wand; but he was able to contend with Dumbledore in the most legendary duel of all time by two wizards. In their first skirmish, he was able to duel Aberforth and Albus simultaneously! When he was interrogated by Voldemort, Voldemort couldn't tap into his mind while he had no wand and was in prison at his weakest. This made him a very powerful occlumens since Voldemort was unmatched in interrogating people. The only other wizards that could shield their true thoughts from Voldemort were Dumbledore, Snape, and oh wait that it! Grindelwald was also able to manipulate Dumbledore because of their attachment and reason that by becoming the masters of death, that it would be, "for the Greater Good." Thanks for reading!

He supposedly pushed dumbledore quiet far when they dueled so I think he should probably be 3rd

He was far more knowlegeable than Tom. He had wider array of knowlege. He was a better manipulator. He manipulated Dumbledore. As said in the FB movie ha had a silver tongue. Also why is there no picture of him.

4 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.

It's said that no one can lie to Lord Voldemort. This man could. He is also known as one of few people able to brew the Wolfsbane Potion. I believe we never really could see him fighting for real in the books, therefore we can't be sure what his spellcasting skills are, but he did create few original spells as a teenager, as well as correct the textbook recipes, which makes him a prodigy.

Snape should have been FIRST! He is an awesome potions master, and he knows so much about the dark arts!

He could create spell while in his 6th year, he can lie either to Dumbledore or Voldemort. When Harry in his 5th year can duel with Death Eater like Lucius he is totally hopeless against Snape who predict his every move and counter it even before it is used... He is also able to fly without support and only Voldemort himself can do that.

I voted snape! Because I love him laugh out loud. I agree with the 10 people you've chosen but I would change the order around a little bit. Actually, longbottem should be number 1! Laugh out loud jk. But he was pretty hot in the last movies...

5 Minerva McGonagall

Minerva is the most powerful after Dumbledore and Voldemort. Madam Pomfrey said even 4 aurors wouldn't stand a chance against Minerva. I've read J.K. rowling herself said that she would have defeated Snape (altough it would have been close). She was second in command after Dumbledore and no one was ever stupid enough to attack her. She survived every battle without any injury. She has loads of experience and she knows very very much about all kinds of magic and spells, including dark magic. After Minerva, I'd put Snape in a very strong 4th place and Bellatrix 5th. Bellatrix was super powerful, she won all of her battles except when she underestimated Molly and didn't fight with her own wand. Moody is very powerful too.. It's up for debate if he or Bella should be in 5th place. I think because Moody got defeated a few times during the Second Wizarding War, I'd put Bella ahead of Moody.

In the Deathly Hallows, she has a scar on her face during the final battle

It took 4 aurors to take down Minerva, which wasnt even a fair fight. She also had a duel with Voldemort that I think wasnt stated in the books nor the movies. The duel between her and Voldemort ended in a draw. Which shows that she has a incredible defense against the dark arts and other sorts of magic

She bet Severus in a duel (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2) she should be above him. She was indeed second in command after Albus Dumbledore

Minerva should be higher than Snape she is way better than him and according to top trumps she has magic of 100 while Snape only has 88. (FYI Dumbledore and Voldemort has 113).

6 Harry Potter

While I do think that Harry Potter is a exceptionally talented child, he in my opinion is not on the list of powerful witches and wizards. He came on top in the fights with the Dark Lord, because he had a lot of luck, like enormous amount. That and if you combine the fact that he has a lot of help from almost every side it's really no wonder. He is very brave boy, who would later became a great man.

In the first book, he came on top because of his mother, because she sacrificed herself for him, giving him the ultimate protection.

The second book, while it shows incredible character to do what he did, it was not anything magical that we can judge his power on that. He killed the basilisk with the sword, and Riddle with the basilisk tooth.

The third year he actually shows a lot of power, and I did say he was exceptionally gifted. But you have to remember that he taught his classmates two years later and they managed to do it too. Something apparently only a handful ...more

Put it this way: if every wizard in the history of magic were to duel against each other in equal conditions, one on one with no additional help, I can think of only two wizards who would outright beat Harry - Dumbledore and Voldemort. You could make a case for Grindelwald, Snape and Minerva, but even that I say with hesitation.

However, it is important to remember that magic is an art that requires sheer talent, work, experience and practice. At 17 years of age it is unrealistic to expect Harry to have the skill of wizards/ witches many, many years his senior where they have honed their craft. What Harry has is insane talent and potential who was destined for power and greatness, right from the beginning. Yes, he is raw and makes mistakes, but he learns as the series progresses, and by defeating the Dark Lord he demonstrates a skill and talent that very few could ever manage - something Minerva and Snape, for example, were incapable of doing. Harry 30/ 40 years down the line ...more

He's literally a kid and takes on and defeats a million threats since book 1 he's got to be powerful

Harry Potter is very powerful for his age, he was more powerful than he gave himself credit for. He is the son of James and Lily Potter, both very powerful in their own right, so their genes passed on to Harry. He performed a patronus charm in this third year, which not many if any other witch or wizard has done before. He can fly a broom better than anyone at Hogwarts. He taught the others to defend themselves against the Dark Arts. He is one powerful wizard.

7 Bellatrix Lestrange A psychotic death eater who escaped from Azkaban, and is fiercely loyal to Voldemort. Murderer of many people such as Sirius Black, and also a sadist who drove the Longbottoms mad.

I like Bellatrix and Hermione so nice job Bellatrix even though your mock baby voice is annoying I think you are really cool and our nick names are the same both Bella!

Um I think she should be right after snape cause she's really powerful and a cool person

Bellatrix should be 3rd or at least 4th on this list, come on she was a sadistic bitch! Dumbledore said he wouldn't like to fall prey to her!
and should be noted that she was using a wand which she most likely hadn't won the allegiance of when dueling molly weasley

She is powerful enough to do the 3 unforgivable spells and was only killed by Molly Weasley because she wasn't expecting Molly to be such a good witch

8 Hermione Granger

Hermione Granger is much more talented and powerful than Ginny Weasley. She is the most clever witch her age according to one of her teachers' who shared a class with the exceptionally talented Lily Weasley. She is a very powerful witch considering she got ten outstandings and one exceed expectations in her O.W.L.S and Harry Potter who defeated Voldermort Barely got any exceed expectations or outstanding and even failed a few of his classes! She has good stealth too with her exceptional skill at non-verbal spells and her charms which left the trio undetected for almost a year when far more experienced witches and wizards got captured within months! She has outstanding skill and knowledge and is one of the most powerful witches her age!

Who is Lily Weasley? You mean Ginny Weasley, Lily Evans or Lily Potter ( Harry's daughter )?

Without Hermione, almost all of the characters would have died before the 6th book. With her endless numbers spells, millions of remedies and antidotes, and understanding of magical consequences, she is for sure not only the wisest of her time, but most powerful too.

She teaches the spells to harry in the triwizard tournament

Hermione is the glue that sticks the group together! Ron even mentioned in the movie that they wouldn't last a day without her. She is an expert at brewing potions- she brew the polyjuice potion in her second year! She got 9 outstanding OWLS too. She has an encyclopedia in her head. Without her, Voldemort would have never been defeated- Ron and Harry would've died! She always has been the one with the most common sense and focus. She has become quite good with wordless spells too. Hermione for the win people!

9 Alastor Moody

The biggest thing in Moody's favor is his reputation. Think about it, this is the guy who has an Eye that can see through invisibility cloaks. He's taken down so many Death Eaters and Dark Wizards that he is constantly being reported as being attacked. And what's his motto? "Constant Vigilance! " So while he may not be more powerful than Dumbledore or Voldemort, this guy needs to be at least third on the list.

I think Alastor moody was the most powerful wizard he knows all the evil spells and he has a epic staff!

Good Spells and Evil Spells and not afraid to use the 3 curses and I am not talking about the fake Moody. He also has a wand, a staff, and an all seeing eye. Pretty much unbeatable don't you think

Alastor Moody is the best aura ever, that's why Voldemort expected Harry to be with him. He survived two of the wars against Voldemort and the only reason he died is because Mundungus Fletcher is a coward.

10 James Potter

He should be higher up, he excelled in transfiguration which is the hardest subject, he constantly hexed snape even though snape sent thaose hard curses. Please tell me how is hermione, how is harry, before james potter, who defied voldemort THREE TIMES! LIKE ACTUAL FIGHTING, NOT STABBING TH DIARY, NOT HAVING MUMMY TO CAST THE LOVE SPELL, NOT THE SAME WAND TYPE, NOT THE PHILOSOPHERS STONE, NOT DUMBLDORE TO BE THERE ALL THE TIME, NO

As Harry's father I think he is best. Being one of the top in Defense Against the Dark Arts class, he even defeated Snape when he was a fifth year. He may have been killed by Voldemort, but he basically tried to lose. This is what I think:

James Potter, Harry Potter's dad, is the coolest Wizard ever and very powerful. Very brave and an awesome husband and father! James Potter for the win!

James Potter is Harry's father and is considered to be a very powerful wizard.

The Contenders

11 Merlin

Merlin should honestly be right before Dumbledore (as Dumbledore was hinted at many many times to be the most powerful wizard ever and even stated o be the most powerful wizzard of his era.)

He literally has a order names after him "Order of Merlin"anyone.

In a land of myth and a time of magic. The destiny of a great kingdom of the shoulders of a young man. His name, Merlin...

Though he does not come out in the book, he was mentioned before as the greatest wizard o all time by Harry, and Dumbledore. Merlin would just give a flick of his wand, and Voldemort would turn to ashes.

12 Sirius Black

He was able to hide who and where he was for a long time despite his temper with Snaps he is my favorite character

Although his death was tragic, he was one of the better wizards. Firstly, he was protecting Harry Potter and stuck by his friends. He was incredibly powerful, and did his best to help his friends. Despite the pressure from his family and Azkaban, he stuck by what he believed in that's what it takes to be a true wizard. Loyalty, powerful and could be trusted.

Sirius was considered the most powerful and cleverest student all time by Professor mcgonagall. He was also in the order of Phoenix.

Sirius was described as a powerful wizard by Minerva McGonagall, his former teacher. One of his dearest friends, Remus Lupin, also stated that he had been one of the cleverest Hogwarts students of his time.

13 Godric Gryffindor

I know I sound like a Slytherin when I say this, but I don't think Godric Gryffindor should be in 12th place. I know that he was one of the creators of Hogwarts, but there were also three other people helping him. Everyone gives Gryffindor too much praise just because Harry Potter was in his house. All the houses of remarkable qualities that make them amazing and unique. I, for one, believe all houses are equal, and that they should stand together rather than bicker amongst each other and try force everyone to believe their house is the best. Like the Sorting Hat said, "The four houses must come together rather than stand and fight alone (I know that wasn't the exact quote)."

You know, Godric Gryffindor founded the house Harry Potter was in!

He beat a whole goblin army single handedly showing he mist be in contention of one of the best wizards of all time

Love gryffindor Vanessa

14 Salazar Slytherin

While many of the other wizards in this list are pretty powerful, cough Dumbledore cough... Don't forget that Slytherin was one of the most powerful wizards in the history of magic. He created a new magical language or was the original posessor of the magical language parseltongue and he created the original basilisk. It could very well be argued that the most powerful and influential pieces of Dark Magic in the book stem from this single wizard, most probably without the elder wand, although I will admit I'm not entirely sure where the creation of the elder wand took place in history. His magic hid the Chamber of Secrets for thousands of years after his death and his magical line exists as one of the most powerful even by today's standards through Voldemort.

He's a founder he should be above hermione harry moody bellatrix and gellert

Probably in the Top 10 along with the other Founders due to his Reputation alone.

Jeez he literally created most charm and spells

15 Aberforth Dumbledore

Aberforth Dumbledore is an exceptionally good character. He helps Harry, Ronald, and Hermione plenty in the deathly Hallows book. He sends Dobby, the coolest house elf ever, into the Malfoy Manor to save Harry and Rom from the dungeons and Hermione from the grasp of hands of Bellatrix Lastrange. Aberforth also helped the three by getting them into Hog's Head and showing them a secret passage to Hogwarts room of requirement. He is a lovely man and a loyal character that has a little part in harry potter

Pretty sure he is just as powerful as Dumbledore, at least that's the vibe that I got from him.

Really! Read the book... He goes to 3

Hold his own in a full-on duel with Dumbledore and Grindelwald

16 Filius Flitwick

He is charms master and did lots of protective spells. Not to mention duelled tons of bad guys!

He's a Duelling Champion.

A know champion of the dueling league. Helped Mcgonagall run off Snape, dueled Yaxley, and defeated Dolohov. Plus he was one of the greatest Charms practitioners of his time. Think he deserves better than 12th.

He beat dolohov who had killed lupin, defeated mad eye moody, and flitwick was dueling

17 Dobby

Dobby showed his power by the love he felt for Harry and his friends; he could save them from a cellar that Voldemort - as we know he would've visited Malfoy Manor and agreed the conditions upon the inmates imprisonment - deemed inescapable from. I think Dobby should definitely be higher as he undermines Voldemort and Bellatrix Lestrange who both place highly on this list. He fully showed his love as he could've gained comfort betraying Harry or not informing him of the plot meaning Ginny would take the full blame but instead Dobby was ultimately better than Dumbledore as when he had power he operated for the greater good and Dobby could've used the power he had over the Lestranges with the chandelier in Malfoy Manor to use bribery etc etc and grant himself comfort but instead he sticks to his goal of saving Harry and his friends. He was loyal til the end.

Dobby is the best he should be number one I was so sad when he died he is the nicest and cutest person in harry potter

He is not a wizard!

I voted for him because, although he is a house-elf, he deserves a sock. He is extremely cute, yet powerful, and shows his love for everyone. I was heartbroken during his death. DOBBY WAS A FREE ELF ;-;

18 Molly Weasley

She killed Voldemort's strongest Death Eater! Come on make her in the top 10 people!

She defeated Bellatrix the strongest death eater after Voldemort. If somebody says "But Bellatrix only lost because she was suprised" no in the book the battle was long so bellatrix had time too realise Molly was strong.

She was too overconfident in her abilities and the battle wasn't all that long, Bellatrix makes one insult and dies

She killed lestrange without much effort and so I think she is one of the finest witches in the series

She killed Bellatrix which is the best death-eater in HP series

19 Lily Potter

Even if people think her wand magic wasnt very good you can't deny her love for harry was the strongest magic in the series. Love is magic as much as divination or defense against the dark arts;lily should be higher than 19

Lily Potter is considered to be one of the most powerful witches of her time with exceptional skill and talent according to her previous classmates and teaches, for example Slughorn. Little else is known about her but she is not as powerful as Hermione as mentioned though she is still an exceptionally powerful witch.

She was the only known person to stop the killing curse, without her Harry would've died and the prophecy wouldn't have been fulfilled.

Greater than she seems. She died for a reason. Should have a higher ranking than this

20 Kingsley Shacklebolt

Kingsley was powerful, not as powerful as dumbledore of course but when he was cornered by a group of snatchers he was described to have fought his way out

Not the best but certainly the one that has been most underrated on this list. Kingsley is almost always charged with a high responsibility by all those around him. Both in the Order of the Phoenix and in the Ministry of Magic he is highly thought of and is given important roles.
Deserves to be 3 or 4 in my opinion, not sure whether I'd rate Snape as better.

He is not the bodyguard of the prime minister for no reason. He is bad ass

This guy kept death eaters out of Hogwarts all night at his window and you know seeing as most the death eaters flew into the castle he must be dam tough.

21 Rowena Ravenclaw

When people look upon bravery, ambition, and hard work, they tend to view wisdom, "as a mean's to an end." Exactly like magic- a mean's to an end. Rowena Ravenclaw managed to hide the fact that her diadem disappeared for years until her death! Ravenclaw also had a deep love for her daughter even though Helena betrayed her! Not to mention that she's a smart knockout- or at least that's how she's described.

Wisdom is the second strongest power that anyone can have (number one is magic). For instance, humans are more powerful than animals because humans are considerably more intelligent.

How are the other founders higher than her!? She was brilliant!

People are not necessarily more intelligent than animals. Pigs are VERY intelligent. Also, people ARE animals. (She should be higher on the list, too)

22 Helga Hufflepuff

How is anyone supposed to know how strong one of the founders are compared to the current alive wizards and witches at the time

How can we know which founders were more powerful than the others.

One of the founders of Hogwarts and greatest wizard of her time

Helga Hufflepuff is one of four founders of Hogwarts. The students of her house said she was loyal and hardworking. She accepted all her students, muggle-born, too.
She was described as one of the greatest witches of her age. She used her abilities to help create the sorting hat.

23 Luna Lovegood Luna Lovegood was a witch, the only child and daughter of Xenophilius and Pandora Lovegood. Her mother accidentally died while experimenting with spells when Luna was nine and Luna was raised by her father, editor of the magazine The Quibbler, in a rook-like house near the village of Ottery St Catchpole more.

Luna was amazing. She has an ability to dream, even when awake. She was amazing at finding Harry when he was covered with his invisibility cloak. She even survived the Deathly Hallows Part II, for God's sake!

No... According to the book, the one who found him wasn't Luna but Tonk. Tonk was Remus Lupin's wife.

Luna is the best! She sees more in the world then what other can she can see the world as it should be seen and oh most smart any wiz. that you though her way... Luna is better way better then Hermione even she is the best...

Luna was the most powerful witch when she was at Hogwarts. Even better than Hermione.

Awesomeness, thy name is Luna Lovegood

24 Antonin Dolohov

I think Dolohov and Lily were in the same league. Why do you think Voldemort wanted her as a follower so badly? Plus, someone else might argue she's more powerful than Voldemort (which I won't) since her love was able to protect Harry throughout the entire series.

You turned that comment into a Lily comment not an Dolohov one

Lily potter over dolohov? That is crazy. He had his own curse took on harry heroine and Neville at the same time and would've won if not for the other stupid death eater and he killed Remus lupin. A very powerful wizard

Did you get that from the movie? Cause I'm pretty sure he didn't kill Lupin in the book. Never watched the movies

Antonin should be way higher in the list.
He is extremely powerful, it does not give him justice to be in 21.
Check his page on hp wiki.

25 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.

Why the heck is Ron at 57 and a squib has been placed higher than him what

I'm upvoting this solely because everyone in the comments is being a whiny brat. Ron may not be the most powerful, but he sure is competent, and his defining characteristic are not that he is "Harry's sidekick lol" or "GREEDY". Have you not read a single Harry Potter book, or are you just ridiculously obnoxious?

Ron may look very scared but he is cool and he knows way more spells too and is an awesome player at chess

I'm sorry Ron, I'm so sorry. The damned retards that are the filmmakers made you this way. He is powerful, able to mimick Parsletounge, which is extremely hard to learn. He also was able to cast a very complicated spell in his second year, mind you. The slug-vomiting spell. He is talented and powerful. He's not book smart, like Hermione, but his strategical mind and hands on personality helps him to cast spells fluidly, if not really being able to memorize what Beedle the Bard said on his 16th birthday.

26 Neville Longbottom

If he wasn't there, Ron and Heirmione would be dead. He sliced the snakes head off. If he didn't, Harry wouldn't have killed voldemort.

Neville must be in top ten.

Neville is awesome

Neville rocks

27 Kreacher

Yes cutey

YAS. Ah, Kreacher...
Although at first he appeared mean and grumpy, he had a good reason for it. He even started showing his love for Harry in the last book! Although he is definitely not one of the most powerful, I'm still commenting him because he deserves more love. Kreacher will forever be a part of the Noble house of Black :D

28 Bartemius Crouch Sr.

We never really see him use magic

He did manage to defeat Moody (well I assume it was him because Voldemort was incapacitated and Wormtail is an idiot), which is impressive in and of himself, not to mention that he rigged something as powerful as the goblet of fire.

That was Junior not Senior look at the label before you comment


We never actually see him use magic, so we can't really decide his position
in this list.

29 Lucius Malfoy

He got beat up by an elf, twice. I don't think he deserves to be on here.

I think Ron, Draco, and especially Luna were more powerful.

He should be last since he's a real coward like his son.

Lucius is a really powerful wizard he should be at least in the top ten

30 Amelia Bones

Switch Harry's and Moody's positions and I completely agree.

Thanks. Continuing: 11- Lily Potter

Amelia Bones should be much higher on the list. She fought Voldemort by herself. Amelia Bones was considered to be one of the greatest witches of her time. She was a highly skilled duellist and was able to hold her own against Lord Voldemort himself, when the Dark Lord arrived to murder her.

A terrible loss. She was a great witch.
Albus Dumbledore expressing the loss of Amelia Bones.

My top 10 1. Albus Dumbledore, 2. Lord Voldemort, . Gellert Grindewald, 4. Minerva McGonagall, 5. Severus Snape, 6. Bellatrix Lestrange, 7. Alastor Moody, 8. Horace Slughorn, 9. Amelia Bones, 10. Kingsley Shacklebolt.

Move Amelia up 2k16

31 Seamus Finnigan

I know this is a joke but I would tend to agree- Seamus survives an entire year of torture at Hogwarts in DH. Remember how the Trio didn't even recognise Neville when they saw him because he was so disfigured by torture? Yeah, Neville said that was nothing compared to Seamus. The boy deserves respect.

Not a legitimately powerful wizard but he DID survive an entire year of torture without losing his mind like alice and frank longbottom.

The guy who blows stuff up

I wouldn't say he's the strongest. But hey! He survived all of his own explosions from making spells go wrong. And the torture from the Cruciatus curse in the DH. +1 for respect

32 Emmeline Vance

She was a member of both the first and second Order of the Phoenix. She was also a member of the Advance Guard.

Who's she

33 Queenie Goldstein
34 Ginny Weasley

Ginny is so underestimated in the books! If you don't believe me just go reaserch her like crazy and you'll soon agree

Why is Ginny on here twice?

Ginny's actually not that smart and fun.

Cute talented smart and athletic

35 Credence Barebone

To the "Ummm who? " person, he's an Obscurus (Someone who suppressed their magic all their childhood) from Fantastic Beasts. For more info on Obscurials like him, check out the wiki page for it. If you haven't heard of him, you probably haven't seen Fantastic Beasts.

Ummm who?

36 Newton Scamander


Yes! He should be at least top 15...

Most Underrated Wizard Should At Least Be In Top 10

I love this handsome loveable animal lover.

37 Penelope Clearwater

Penelope is strong and nice in my eyes.

Shew doesn't do magic in the series.

How should we know? Jesus christ😒

38 Peter Pettigrew

He is such a bad fighter he is not even allowed to fight. All he does is sit back and watch the castle how is he on here before the other Death eaters

The Hogwarts professors didn't even let him participate in class so how is he on this list. He probably just cast the spell incorrectly when he killed those muggles.

At least he had the silver hand

He literally isn't allowed to fight cause he is so bad somebody needs to change thisa

39 Cedric Diggory

Cedric is so strong he should be behind Sirius

We did barely know anything about him. All we know was that he did well in the as the one of the hogwarts champions in the tournament.
I really think he should be on the bottom.

I cried when he died it was so sad

He performed well in Triwizard Tournament that tells us that he was an awesome duelist. He could have done better than Harry if alive it also tells us that he was the most disciplined, smart, clever student at Hogwarts

40 Colin Creevey

Like, seriously. All he was was an annoying little brat

Could I take your photo Harry? Please? Pretty Please?

I Like Your Comment LOL It Was Funny

How is he even on here lol

41 Rubeus Hagrid Rubeus Hagrid is a fictional character in the Harry Potter book series written by J. K. Rowling. Hagrid is introduced in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as a half-giant and half-human who is the gamekeeper and Keeper of Keys and Grounds of Hogwarts, the primary setting for the first six novels. more.

Well considering he only had three years of hogwarts years and yet he gave Dudley a pigs tail. So yes that was a pretty cool bit of magic

He is quite a powerful wizard but he isn't allowed to perform magic



42 Fleur Delacour

People underestimate her because she came last in Triwizard, but hey, she did make it in. That’s something.

I think Fleur should be higher, considering she was a triwizard champion

The most talented, incredible witch who marries Bill

As a triwizard champion, she should be higher.

43 Narcissa Malfoy

She could lie to Lord Voldemort, which is practically impossible! She saved Harry Potter's life and without her, he would have probably died. She should definitely be in the top 20.

Voldemort was feeling very obnoxious when he heard those words and probably didn't stop to think twice

She is Draco Malfoy's Mom, and Lucius Malfoy's wife

She would be only in the top 25, I say. because she could lie to Voldemort, but had not much skill against Harry.

She must be an extremely powerful legilimens to lie to lprd voldemort

44 George Weasley

He should be with fred they are twins! THEY ARE INSEPERABLE

45 Viktor Krum

I agree with I think he should be higher! Lower than Vernon? Come on! Who can agree with that! Vernon doesn't even do magic

I think he should be higher! Lower than Vernon? Come on! Who can agree with that! Vernon doesn't even do magic!

He is pretty good considering he was a champion

He's the 2 best seeker (Harry's the first)

46 Nicolas Flamel

This guy is powerful. He made a stone that could make people immortal

I would like to add a few items to this list.

SWAT strongest wizard of all time

47 Percival Graves
48 Tina Goldstein
49 Leslie

Who the hell is Leslie

Why should you vote for an actor who voiced the sorting hat on the list he is not an wizard
it's an object that sort to your houses

Leslie Phillips is the muggle that Voldemort killed at the start of number 4 I know in the books it says his name is frank but I know this is the muggle I'm not mistaken

Dear Leslie,
Why are you higher than Nicolas Flamel?

50 Horace Slughorn

Slughorn was one of the few who dueled Voldemort. He was also teaching at Hogwarts for decades. He has that much experience. He should be on the top 15.

With mcgonagals and kingsleys help he subdued the most greatest dark wizard in history and repaired an entire room with dumbledores help. He was an amazing potion master and very intelligent and powerful he should be in the top ten
