Can You Identify These Harry Potter Characters If We Remove Their Eyebrows?

OOF, this poor guy rode the struggle bus hard while at Hogwarts. Who is this Harry Potter character?

Tbh, Neville Longbottom's magic skills were bad. Like, he was good at Herbology or whatever, but that's plants! It wasn't until Harry started working with him one-on-one during the secret Dumbledore's Army meetings that Neville actually started progressing. All his effort paid off when he killed Voldemort's stupid snake!

You probably remember this witch being way thirsty for Voldemort. Can you identify this Harry Potter character?

Perhaps his most loyal supporter, Bellatrix Lestrange thought Voldemort's plan to eliminate Muggle-born witches and wizards was a big mood. Bellatrix was one of the few Harry Potter characters with absolutely no redeeming qualities, so we were happy to see Molly Weasley end her at the Battle of Hogwarts.

Every school (even Hogwarts) has that one kid who is, like, super weird. Can you name this Harry Potter character?

All those haters who called Luna cray were actually missing out on a really good friend. She may have liked to stick her wand behind her ear for safekeeping, but Luna slayed throughout the series. Can you seriously imagine that trip to the Department of Mysteries without her?

Harry didn't properly meet this character — the most famous Auror of all time — until "Deathly Hallows." Who is it?

In "Goblet of Fire," Harry thought he was learning Defense Against the Dark Arts from Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody, but it was actually Barty Crouch Jr. In the scandal of the century, the latter was drinking Polyjuice Potion to look like the former. Harry finally met the real Moody near the start of "Deathly Hallows."

This dude snuck out of Azkaban and had the whole Wizarding World (including Harry) freaking tf out. Can you name this Harry Potter character?

Wizards everywhere were shook when the Daily Prophet broke the news that Sirius Black had escaped from Azkaban. Arthur Weasley warned Harry that Black might be coming after him, but that turned out to be totally false. By the end of "Prisoner of Azkaban," Sirius (who was actually Harry's godfather) invited Harry to come live with him. Aww!

This character for sure didn't win an Auntie of the Year award. Who is she?

Harry's mom may have been Petunia's sister, but let's be honest: She didn't GAF about her nephew. We guess her letting him live under her roof or whatever was nice. But in "Order of the Phoenix," it's revealed Petunia only did so because she was scared of Dumbledore.

This Beuaxbatons beauty took Hogwarts by storm when she competed against Harry in "Goblet of Fire." Who is she?

Ah yes, the enchanting Fleur Delacour. Here's what the fake "Mad-Eye" Moody had to say about her: "She's as much a fairy princess as I am." Fleur was the only female champion in the Triwizard Tournament, and after finishing at Beauxbatons, she married Bill Weasley.

After Cho Chang turned him down (oof), Harry ended up asking this lovely witch to the Yule Ball. Who is this Harry Potter character?

Even after Harry and Ron waited until the last minute to ask anyone (well, anyone who might actually go with them) to the Yule Ball, they lucked out and managed to score dates with the Patil sisters. Parvati was in Gryffindor, and her twin, Padma, was in Ravenclaw.

She was one of the most hated characters in the entire series. Can you identify this Harry Potter character?

We still remember how Dolores Umbridge made our blood boil. Like, we weren't fans of Voldemort, but we might have hated Umbridge even more. When the centaurs carried her off in "Order of the Phoenix," we were thrilled.

He's the GOAT when it comes to Defense Against the Dark Arts professors, but you wouldn't want to cross paths with him around the full moon. Can you identify this Harry Potter character?

Remember that shabby-looking dude Harry, Hermione and Ron shared a compartment with on the Hogwarts Express? Turned out he was their new professor, Remus Lupin! He also happened to be one of Harry's dad's best friends ... and a werewolf.

We think this big man with a heart of freaking gold was one of the most underrated characters in the whole Harry Potter series. Can you name him?

As long as we live, we will never forget that warm, fuzzy feeling we got when Hagrid told Harry he was a wizard. Like, top-10 movie moments without a doubt. With that in mind, what was up with Harry NOT naming one of his kid's after Hagrid? He named them after basically everyone else!

He and his wife forced Harry to sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. Who is this Harry Potter character?

Like Aunt Petunia, Uncle Vernon had absolutely no love for his nephew, Harry. The dude did everything he could to keep little Harry from going to Hogwarts. But not even rowing out to an island in the middle of the sea while a storm raged could keep Harry from getting his letter.

Known mostly by her last name, this witch was also a Metamorphmagus. Who is she?

The lovable Tonks! She wasn't afraid to be silly, even turning her nose into a pig snout to amuse Hermione and Ginny. We would have never shipped her and the serious Lupin, but in the end, it was meant to be. Ugh, their deaths at the Battle of Hogwarts made us cry all the tears.

At the start of the Triwizard Tournament, everyone was rooting for this "real" Hogwarts champion. Can you name this Harry Potter character?

If you had been at Hogwarts, Cedric Diggory was the kind of guy you hoped would slide into your DMs. We may have thirsted after Cedric a bit. Hot and humble? Sign us up! Wait, we just remembered ... Voldemort killed him. Now, we're tilted.

Huh, if you squint, he does sort of look like an armchair. Who is this Harry Potter character?

At the start of "Half-Blood Prince," Dumbledore drags Harry along on a mission to procure a new Potions Master for the upcoming term at Hogwarts. While Horace Slughorn is initially reluctant (He disguised himself as an overstuffed armchair!), the dude couldn't pass up the opportunity to add someone as famous as Harry Potter to his "Slug Club."

Ugh, this character was a total troll throughout the Harry Potter series. Can you name him?

We won't deny that Lucius Malfoy knew how to dress. The dude almost always looked fresh to death, and that cane/wand/sword thing was dripping. But he was also a total jerk. Remember how awful he was to poor Dobby?

This kid was living proof being a wizard didn't mean you were smart. Can you name this Harry Potter character?

We don't blame you if you had trouble keeping Vincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle straight. The point is they followed Draco Malfoy everywhere and probably would have forgotten to breathe if he hadn't reminded them.

This famous Quidditch player only had eyes for Hermione Granger. Who is this Harry Potter character?

When Viktor Krum showed up at Hogwarts for the Triwizard Tournament, all Ron could think about was getting his autograph. But then, Ron turned salty when he found out Krum had a huge crush on Hermione. The two went to the Yule Ball together, which Ron, of course, had to ruin.

Awww, Harry's first crush was on this pretty Ravenclaw Quidditch player. Who is she?

Harry fell hard for Cho when he saw her for the first time on the Quidditch pitch. But his hopes were dashed when he learned she was dating Cedric Diggory. After Cedric died, Harry and Cho got together (weird, yes). Lots of emotions and hormones were on display.

Yup, you knew we were going to include a few magical creatures in this quiz. Who is this Harry Potter character?

If this goblin looks cunning AF, it's because he is. In "Deathly Hallows," Griphook plotted with Harry, Ron and Hermione to break into Gringotts Wizarding Bank. Oh, and he only wanted one small thing in return for his help: the sword of Gryffindor.

This salty old squib was constantly (and unsuccessfully) trying to control Fred and George Weasley. Who is this Harry Potter character?

Like Arabella Figg, Argus Filch was squib. But he managed to find a place for himself in the Wizarding World. Filch was the caretaker at Hogwarts and took his job seriously. Like, very seriously. You know Fred and George had a lot of fun with him.

You should have no trouble recognizing this character without eyebrows since he was always lighting his on fire. Who is he?

It's hard to imagine Hogwarts without this goofy Irish wizard. During their first year, Seamus told Harry and Ron his Muggle dad didn't know his mom was a witch when he married her. Apparently, it was a "nasty shock" when he found out.

Even though she loved Harry, Ginny Weasley dated this fellow Gryffindor for a while. Can you identify this Harry Potter character?

Ron was ready to fight Dean Thomas when he found out Dean was dating his sister. But, as it turned out, all that rage was misplaced. Maybe he was a bit of an overprotective brother, but Ron was mostly salty his little sister had a boyfriend when he'd never had a girlfriend.

The wand chooses the wizard! Can you identify this Harry Potter character?

Is a wizard without a wand even really a wizard? Before his first year at Hogwarts, Hagrid took Harry to Diagon Alley to buy supplies. It was on that trip Harry met the famous wandmaker, Garrick Ollivander. He sold Harry a wand of holly and phoenix feather.

Of course, the least woke wizard was in charge of the Ministry of Magic. Who is this Harry Potter character?

In "Order of the Phoenix," Cornelius Fudge said some really savage things in an effort to slander Harry and Dumbledore. After saying there was no way Voldemort could ever come back, he looked like a total fool when the Dark Lord showed up at the Ministry of Magic.

This Harry Potter character might have had a house that smelled like cabbage, but she totally had Harry's back when it counted. Who is she?

You didn't think the Dursleys actually took Harry along on their family vacays, did you? Nah, they dumped him off at the nutty neighbor's house. In addition to loving cats and her house slippers, Mrs. Figg was a squib. Yep, not quite a witch, but not quite a Muggle either.

She raised a total troll, and tbh, we kind of hate her for it. Can you identify this Harry Potter character?

While she wasn't as crazy as her sister, Bellatrix, or as spineless as her husband, Lucius, Narcissa must have been her own kind of awful for having raised Draco. We bet she loved being a grandmother to little Scorpius.

Growing up with a whole bunch of brothers made this girl tough AF, and she isn't afraid to throw a hex or two to prove it. Who is this Harry Potter character?

If you can be sure of anything, it's that you don't want to be on the receiving end of Ginny Weasley's Bat-Bogey Hex. That girl's curse skills are absolute fire, so it's no wonder Harry is so into her. We thought their whole relationship was kind of weird at first (she was like a sister to him!), but by the end of the series, we were living for it.

Hmmm, there's something kind of familiar about this guy. Who is this Harry Potter character?

Dude, that's Aberforth Dumbledore. We wouldn't describe Aberforth as having been close with his brother, Albus. In fact, he blamed Albus for the death of their sister, Ariana. Yikes, some serious family drama there!

Yeah, you don't really wanna find out what's under that turban. Who is this Harry Potter character?

In "Sorcerer's Stone," Harry came face to face with Voldemort for the first time. Where had Voldemort been hiding? Well, on the back of Quirinus Quirrell's head. Quirrell met Voldemort (or what was left of him) when he was traveling around the world.

Her cray predictions were hilarious. Can you name this Harry Potter character?

For the most part, we thought Divination was ridiculous and considered Professor Trelawny a total fraud. But when Umbridge tried to throw her out of Hogwarts in "Order of the Phoenix," we were big relieved when McGonagall came to her defense.

When she took Neville to the Hospital Wing, we learned Harry was awesome at flying. Can you name this Harry Potter character?

You may not have known her first name since everyone at Hogwarts refers to her as "Madam Hooch." When she's not teaching young witches and wizards how to fly, you can catch her referring Quidditch matches. Her position requires her to be impartial, but you know she's pulling for Gryffindor against Slytherin.

In "Goblet of Fire," this Harry Potter character impersonated another Harry Potter character (yeah, it's a lot). Who is he?

Hopefully, this question didn't make your head spin as if you'd drank too much (or not enough?) Polyjuice Potion. Barty Crouch Jr., a loyal Death Eater, managed to trick everyone into thinking he was "Mad-Eye" Moody for basically all of "Goblet of Fire."

In some circles, he's the worst Weasley. Can you identify this Harry Potter character?

When the rest of his family was supporting Harry and Dumbledore, Percy stood by the Minister of Magic in saying Voldemort had not returned. Seriously, dude? It caused a major rift in the Weasley fam that wasn't mended until the Battle of Hogwarts where Percy admitted what a fool he had been.

Oh, Sirius, if only you had treated him with a little dignity. Can you name this Harry Potter character?

After meeting Dobby early in the series, you may have thought all house-elves were super helpful and nice. But then, you met Kreacher. Yeah, not quite so adorable. When Kreacher passed into Harry's charge after Sirius' death, he didn't make his godfather's mistake and actually treated Kreacher with some respect.

You wouldn't want to meet this dude in a dark alley (or really anywhere, for that matter). Who is this Harry Potter character?

To say Fenrir Greyback was not a nice guy would be an understatement. This notoriously savage werewolf made it his mission in life to infect as many people as possible. He said he especially liked turning children. WTF!

Tfw you see red hair and know it's a Weasley. Can you name this Harry Potter character?

After graduating from Hogwarts, Bill Weasley moved to Egypt where he worked as a curse breaker for Gringotts. Pretty cool, huh? Well, you know what wasn't cool? In "Half-Blood Prince," Fenrir Greyback, a werewolf, attacked him. Bill survived, and although he isn't a werewolf himself, he does like his steaks rare.

You knew this dude was bad the moment he got off the Durmstrang ship. Can you identify this Harry Potter character?

Former (and not-so-former) Death Eaters pop up throughout the Harry Potter series. We meet Igor Karkaroff in "Goblet of Fire." Was anyone really surprised when the Headmaster of Durmstrang revealed his Dark Mark? Yeah, we didn't think so.

She was Draco Malofy's high school bae. Who is she?

For reasons unknown to literally everyone, Pansy Parkinson had a crush on fellow Slytherin Draco Malfoy. He took her to the Yule Ball, but we never really saw him reciprocate her affections. (No tea, no shade to Draco fans! We've all had feelings for a bad boy.)

During her final year at Hogwarts, she served as captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team. Who is this Harry Potter character?

When we first meet Angelina Johnson, she's a chaser on the Gryffindor Quidditch team. She and fellow chaser Katie Bell are the only female players on the roster. Angelina's seventh year, while serving as captain, she adds Ginny Weasley to the squad after Harry is banned from playing.

About This Quiz

We're well aware it's been nearly a decade since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows premiered, but we are still very much into that series. Like, we can't even see scarlet and gold together without thinking of Gryffindor. And when we just typed out "Gryffindor," we obv said it in the Sorting Hat's booming voice. Obsessed is an understatement.

While some people might call us crazy, we know you're not one of them. If you laughed when Hagrid gave Dudley a pig's tail and cried when Cedric Diggory died, then you totally get us. J.K. Rowling changed our lives when she wrote Harry Potter. Then the movies just took things to the next level. OMG, talk about incredible casting! Usually, we'd say movies never live up to the books they're based on, but this series is the exception.

We hope it hasn't been too long since your last Harry Potter movie marathon because this quiz is going to test you. You may think you'd know your fave characters anywhere, but what if we removed their eyebrows? A bit tougher, no? We thought so! 

Whether you're a Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw, we want you to take our quiz and identify as many of these Harry Potter characters as you can. It's not as difficult as defeating Voldemort but close!
