Top 10 Most Powerful Witches and Wizards From Harry Potter


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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

22 Draco Malfoy Draco Malfoy Draco Lucius Malfoy is a character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. He is a student in Harry Potter's year belonging in the Slytherin house.

Draco is always 2nd to Hermione when it comes to tests and homework in Hogwarts. He was advanced in potions and his parents and godfather is powerful so surely he is too. It wasn't his fault he was on Voldemort's side in the war. He was forced by his parents and Voldemort threatened to kill him/his mother if he doesn't kill Dumbledore. He didn't have an option. But here's the thing. Draco was always arrogant, and he willingly put his shield down in front of someone he never wanted to see him weak; Dumbledore and Snape. I admire him for his eerily put innocence and bravery.

Oh, come on. Tell me one spell that Draco did that actually hurt somebody. Not powerful, just smug.

Really Ron and Ginny Weasley is more powerful than Draco? Laughing. Sure Ginny beat him in duel but Draco can beat them into the ground.

He's amazing

23 Remus Lupin Remus Lupin

Lupin should b higher because he was an amazing DADA teacher, a good man and friend to Harry, Sirius and many others. RIP Remus. You are one of my favorite characters and will be missed.

He should be higher up since he was one of the best defense against the dark arts teacher and was a member of the order

Remus Lupin is my favorite person in Harry Potter (besides maybe Harry)

He managed to make people enjoy defense against the dark arts. If you can make every griffindor enjoy DADA, you are awesome.

24 Kreacher

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 - HufflepuffGeekGirl

25 Neville Longbottom 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 rocks

Every one knows that only a true GRYFFINDOR can use the sword of Godric Gryffindor. He was one of them. He at least must be in top 10. He also killed NAGINI (the snake) which was the last HORCRUX YOU-KNOW-WHO had.

26 Lily Potter

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

She should be higher than this- she is most definitely more powerful than Belatrix and she is the one who defeated the killing curse (cast by the most powerful wizzard of all time).

27 Ginevra Weasley

Every time she casts a spell in the films they are extremely powerful, never understood why that wasn't take. Further in the story

She is the most powerful wizard of her age.

Marries Harry Potter, has his children, is a Weasley, and does an awesome Bat-Bogey Hex! Come on peeps! 26? Surely you can do better than that!

DOBBY is more powerful than her?!
You people didn't even spell her name right.Show some respect.She should be right before Hermione.Sure, Hermione KNOWS all the spells but Ginny is much more tough and brave...

28 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!

How is Helga Hufflepuff higher than her!

29 Ron Weasley 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.

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.

Without Ron and Hermione, Harry couldn't have successed to defeat Voldamort.

30 Lucius Malfoy

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

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

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

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

31 Seamus Finnigan 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 Nymphadora Tonks

Can't believe Tonks isn't higher up on this list. She saved Harry and his friends plenty of times, look at here skills at the Battle of the Department of mysteries. And I admire her strengt and courage to leave her child behind because she could not leave Remus. Absolutely gutted that she and Remus dies. RIP TONKS AND REMUS

She just has to be higher on this list

16th I would say

She's a really Powerful character she battled BELLATRIX. She is also a metamorphages and an Auror.

33 Luna Lovegood Luna Lovegood

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

Awesomeness, thy name is Luna Lovegood

The onley reson she survived the war is cause she gave head to all detheater and voldamart

35 Ginny Weasley 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?

I have her wand

36 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.


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

37 Newton Scamander


Held his own against Grindelward for a while... Incredibly knowledgeable about beasts and know how to tell them to aid him... Newt is a very powerful wizard indeed. - Goku02

Guuyys he saved new york! he is a really powerful wizard! at least top 20

38 Colin Creevey

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

I Like Your Comment LOL It Was Funny

Colin Creevy is the most powerful wizard ever! He could have annoyed Voldemort to death!

He really could've annoyed him to death.
Colin: Can I just have one picture?
Voldemort: No
Colin: Please?
Voldemort: No
Colin: Pretty Please?
(Voldemort turns into ashes)

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



Why, he couldn't even use magic [barely]. He probably just fall on his opponents
