Smartest Harry Potter CharactersFavoriteFightingFrenchman
The Top Ten
Hermione is a bit of an atheist witch, even if atheists don't believe in magic. She solved Snape's logic potion puzzle. No offense to the Luna Lovegood fan club, she was irritated with Luna in the fifth book talking about the imaginary creatures and called the Quibbler rubbish. The only time its read is when its about Harry, the Wizarding War, and Ginny doing a quiz in it at the end of the fifth book on the train.
Yep I agree. She is awesome in many ways but Dumbledore should have been on number 1. He's a lot much better then others...
Hermione is the most smartest person in Harry Potter she is a muggle born and practiced spells at home that is really amazing she also saved Ron and harry multiple times like the time when they were in devils snare in my option I know that hermione deserves first
She is smarter than the teachersV 14 Comments
Albums Dumbledore was, indeed, a clever, clever, man, not unlike Mr. Snape himself. Although my personal opinion of Professor Snape himself is divided, one may seem fit to say that he was loyal to Dumbledore in the end. Well of course! Albus Dumbledore planned his own death, aided the Trio in many ways, and served as an aid even in death. He may have made huge mistakes, but that just proves how amazing he is, and wholesome.
I truly think Albus should be first. He figured out things no-one could, and he knows EVERYTHING. - Goku02
Dumbledore is the smartest person on Harry potter he knows things that other people do not know
Hermione does seem the smartest, and when I went on the list I truly thought of her first. But, then I saw Dumbledore on the list and thought, Dumbledore is probably smarter than Hermione. I mean, Hermione had to go to the library to help Harry with the task, Dumbledore would have known what to do. And also...…………………….Moody. (Well practically Barty Crouch Jr.)V 1 Comment
Snape should be higher on the list. He created his own spells! - Ravenclaw12
While people may not consider her very smart due to her eccentricity, Luna demonstrates that intelligence comes in many forms. Her personality and mindset are able to see things that others miss and comes up with ideas that no one else may think of. - LydiaLuna
Luna shall stay vibrant! Though I am not quite sure about her being ahead of Dumbledore, it's safe to say she should at least be top 5!
LUNA LOVEGOOD?! People, people, Luna is not that smart and Snape and McGonagall should be before her.

Being, 'smart,' doesn't necessarily mean Ravenclaw- worthy. He was indeed smart, but there is more to Ravenclaw. Does he love learning? Does he value knowledge above all? Does he think outside the box? If so, maybe he just values bravery more,
He was the brains of the marauders. He was the brains of the Order of Phoenix. Belonged in Ravenclaw but put in Gryffindor for plot reasons.
Tom Riddle aka Voldemort was known as the smartest student at his time at Hogwarts and everybody knew it. - ParasN2000
Oh yeah very smart
HAHAAHAHAAHAHAAHAHAA who voted for this idiot lmao
Its like people want to ignore everything that happened in deathly hallows. During the battle, he figured out things that most people could not even understand (including hermione granger, who is the brightest witch of her age). It is obvious that he is extremely clever but only when it comes to the things he is interested in, like chess. He is not great at studies because he doesn't care enough. If he did, he'd be one of the best in his year.
If it wasn't for Ron, the Hufflepuff cup wouldn't have even been destroyed because he is the one who came up with the idea to use the basilisk's fang in the first place.
Hermione should get some of the credit for Ron's rare smarts. She taught him wingardium leviosa and some other things. Normally, he's just an idiot.
You should be smart to escape Azkaban without any help. He was even an animagus in just his 5th year. McGonagall described him as one of the cleverest students (along with James). He was even had a bit of detective skill in him.
Yep agreed but why isn't he in the top 10?
McGonagall should be 2nd or 3rd! She is so wise and is Dumbledore’s right hand. Hermione is just book smart, McGonagall is book smart and wise.
Ginny is smarter than ron in many ways! ggrrr
Yes... he was the first person to ever discover Voldemort's secret and he was smart enough to find the locket... although he didn't live to see it destroyed...
He discovered Voldemort's horcruxus when he was 18 and stealed one. He deserves a place on the list.
The creator of Ravenclaw deserves a better position in the smartest characters in Harry Potter
He is dumb
Well, he was the impostor of Alastor Moody in the 4th book(and movie :)) So, it was actually him, who knew everything for the three tasks.
AMAZING and so SMART!
She's in Ravenclaw.
