When I was young, I love to see magical things happen in daily life. I always dream of having magical powers or ability to transform into a mythical beast. When I grew up a little bit, I read “Harry Potter”. As you know, the history and fascination with fantasy has been around for centuries (like fairy tales and the Brothers Grimm), but it had been growing stronger since “Harry Potter” released. Thanks to J. K. Rowling, the genres of fiction and fantasy will be for a long time to come.
Of course, Harry has the best reputation because he is the Chosen One but being famous does not make you the most intelligent or the most resourceful person. There are other witches and wizards that can take your breath. Here are my list of most powerful wizards in Harry Potter. Beware!
Albus Dumbledore: he is well known as the world’s most powerful wizard and the only wizard Voldemort ever feared.
Tom Marvolo Riddle a.k.a Voldemort: even Dumbledore couldn’t do anything to stop his power.
Severus Snape: he infiltrated Voldemort’s camp and remained undetected till the very end. He also managed to protect Harry Potter from the situations he got himself into. He has higher reputation of Voldemort than Bellatrix.
Sirius Black: He managed to break out of Azkaban, and evade capture with the entire wizard and muggle force looking for him.
Minerva McGonagall: she is extremely good at Transfiguration, and becomes Hogwarts Headmistress after the battle of Hogwarts
Remus Lupin: he is an excellent Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher and a powerful member of the Order
Mad Eye Moody: He is mad, and he hunts down and lock up many dark wizards
Bellatrix Lestrange: She is Voldemort’s right hand. She defeated Sirius Black and many other talented members of the Order.
