Smartest Harry Potter Characters


The Top Ten

1 Hermione Granger Hermione Granger

Gasp I'm so shocked at number 1

I imagine people saying, "Miss Granger, why weren't you sorted into Ravenclaw? "

Hermione is LITERALLY the smartest witch in the wizarding world. "You really are the brightest witch."

As per my concern she is the best in the whole story👍👍

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

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


3 Luna Lovegood Luna Lovegood

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!

She is a smart and good friend to Harry potter

4 Remus Lupin Remus Lupin

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.

5 Harry Potter Harry Potter Harry James Potter is the title character of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The majority of the books' plot covers seven years in the life of the orphan Potter, who, on his eleventh birthday, learns he is a wizard.
6 Severus Snape 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.

Snape should be higher on the list. He created his own spells! - Ravenclaw12

7 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.

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.

8 Scorpius Malfoy Scorpius Malfoy
9 Voldemort 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.
10 Lily Evans

The Contenders

11 Alastor Moody Alastor Moody
12 Minerva McGonagall Minerva McGonagall

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.

13 Sirius Black Sirius Black

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.

14 Arthur Weasley Arthur Weasley
15 Neville Longbottom Neville Longbottom
16 Ginny Weasley Ginny Weasley

Ginny is smarter than ron in many ways! ggrrr
