25 'Harry Potter' Memes More Epic Than the Savior Himself
If Hogwarts students had access to the internet, there’s no doubt they’d love memes just as much as everyone else. The Harry Potter universe has been ever-expanding since J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was released in 1997, providing 20 years of content to work with. Because there are so many amazing, clever, and dumb Harry Potter memes out there, we thought we’d round up some of the best ones for you.
Most of these memes are pretty in-universe, poking fun at some of the characters’ most iconic lines and looks. There are also quite a few crossovers into real life since Harry Potter has become so deeply ingrained in fans’ psyches. Why not ask someone on a first date what their Hogwarts house is? And why not reread the entire Harry Potter series for the 100th time? Nothing’s stopping you. You’ll always love the world Rowling made.
Here are 25 of the best Harry Potter memes:
1. Sirius doesn’t think you’re funny, Snape
2. Funny or scary?
3. Lorde Voldemort. Get it?
4. No one puts Dumbledore in a corner
5. Ooh, burn
6. Hermione knows
7. Where’s the pool?
8. Or try to boil water
9. Why is the same photo here twice?
10. Harry Potter mixed with Diamond Joe
11. Obama proving he’s a true friend
12. I might catch something new!
13. Okay, but it’s an important question
14. I’m usually Harry
15. Better than a rubber duck
16. You’re a wizard, Harry
17. He was young, okay?
18. Uncomfortable but real
19. New definition of “cool big brothers”
20. Yeah, Dumbledore isn’t the best judge of character
21. Proper punishment
22. Draco totally belongs in Mean Girls
23. Find the Hufflepuff
24. What a nerd
25. Ravenclaws definitely snuck into the library too
The Best Harry Potter Memes Ever
In the big wide wizarding world, Harry Pottermemes are truly the gift that keeps on giving.
The enduring phenomenon of Harry Potter has given us many things, from a slew of inspirational quotes to a beloved Broadway play. But one of the greatest gifts that the franchise has bestowed on fans is source material for a seemingly never-ending stream of memes.
Luckily, the movies based on J.K. Rowling’s book series supplied a visual representation of the story of the boy who lived, allowing Harry Potter to find a whole new lease on life when memes became a favored source of internet entertainment. After all, with a franchise as beloved as Harry Potter, it seems only natural for fans to continually be looking for ways to reference the series in everyday interactions. Especially in ways that are laugh-out-loud funny.
It’s been nearly 10 years since the Harry Potter movies wrapped up their decade-long run in theaters, but the jokes derived from scenes in the eight films will never get old. Here’s TIME’s list of the 10 best Harry Potter memes ever.
The Harry Potter meme where Voldemort hugs Draco
We’ve all been there. You’re caught up in the emotion of everyone believing Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) is dead after Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) uses the killing curse on him in The Deathly Hallows – Part 2 when suddenly the Dark Lord is calling for recruits to join the Death Eaters. Malfoy (Tom Felton) steps forward and is forced into one of the most awkward hugs ever depicted on-screen, a moment so hilariously uncomfortable that it instantly cemented its spot in the annals of Harry Potter meme history.
Felton himself has even commented on the cringe-inducing embrace.
“Pretty proud to say I’m probably the only kid that ever hugged Voldemort. Even if it was awkward,” he tweeted following the movie’s release in 2011.
Now, the Voldemort hugs Draco meme has become a litmus test for gauging just how awkward a situation is.
The Harry Potter meme where you need to turn to page 394
Thanks to Alan Rickman’s ice cold portrayal of the stony Severus Snape, Hogwarts’ longtime potions professor inspired countless memes over the years. But one in particular that has stood the test of time is Snape telling Harry’s class to turn to page 394 of their Defense Against the Dark Arts textbook while subbing for Lupin (David Thewlis) in The Prisoner of Azkaban.
Rickman’s iconically deadpan delivery of the line made it an instant hit among movie watchers, who transformed it into a reply meme signifying putting your foot down in short order.
The Harry Potter meme where ‘yer a wizard’
It may be the line that first brought the true magic of Harry Potter to life in The Sorcerer’s Stone, but it’s also often misquoted. Strangely enough, it’s that version that has become a meme.
After the pivotal moment that is Rubeus Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane) bursting through the door of the Hut-on-the-Rock to deliver Harry’s Hogwarts acceptance letter and discovering that the Dursleys have never told Harry about his magical lineage, the line Hogwarts’ gentle giant groundskeeper actually says is, “Harry — yer a wizard.”
In meme form, Harry’s name generally appears at the end of the quote instead. And Hagrid is generally telling Harry that he’s something other than a wizard.
The “Yer a wizard, Harry” reaction gif is also employed to inform someone when they’re stating the obvious.
The Harry Potter meme where Harry doesn’t have his mother’s eyes
Despite the fact that Harry’s eyes were a distinct bright green in the books, due to Daniel Radcliffe’s “extreme reaction” to wearing colored contacts, fans just had to accept that movie Harry had blue eyes. J.K. Rowling herself even approved this switch — on one condition.
During a one-on-one conversation with Radcliffe that was included as an extra on the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 DVD, Rowling reveals what she told Harry Potter producer David Heyman when he called to ask if it was OK if Radcliffe’s eyes weren’t green. “The only really important thing is that his eyes look like his mother’s eyes,” she said. “So if you’re casting Lily, there needs to be a resemblance, but they don’t absolutely have to be green.”
That makes sense since throughout the entirety of both the book and movie series, other characters are constantly telling Harry that he has his mother’s eyes. With his dying breath, even Snape famously says as much.
But when young Lily Potter (Ellie Darcey-Alden) appears on screen while Harry is submerged in Snape’s memories in the Pensieve minutes after his death, she has…brown eyes. This was a bridge too far for some and led to a meme poking fun at the obvious blooper.
Talk about an awkward moment!
The Harry Potter meme where Neville’s all grown up
When we first meet Neville Longbottom in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, he’s described as a “round-faced boy” who’s clumsy, forgetful and nervous. And when 11-year-old Matthew Lewis was cast as Neville in the movies, he appeared to be a good fit for the role.
Except there was one problem — the older Lewis got, the less he resembled the awkward young wizard he was playing. Lewis himself has even said that he was worried he was going to be recast.
“Definitely at one point between films two and three I shot up in height and lost a lot of puppy fat and I wondered if they were going to recast me — we were only contracted to two films at a time,” he told Big Issuein 2013. “It didn’t keep me awake at night but I considered it a possibility. I’ve since been told there was never any question but I reckon in some dark room somewhere in California it might have come up.”
Luckily, Neville fully comes into his own by the end of the book series, which allowed Lewis to shed the “fat suit and false teeth and stuff to stick my ears out” that he had to wear for a few years and debut his transformation to the world.
As defined by Urban Dictionary, the term “Neville Longbottom” has since become a slang verb meaning “to get significantly more attractive after going through the process of puberty.”
When Lewis graced the cover of Attitude magazine alongside the tagline “From Hogwarts to hottie” in 2015, even J.K. Rowling had something to say about the photo of him pulling his tank top up to reveal his abs.
“Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close,” she wrote, referencing the play in which Daniel Radcliffe famously appeared nude. “Warn me next time, for God’s sake.”
Now, Neville memes are around to serve as inspiration for anyone who feels like a late bloomer.
The Harry Potter meme with Gryffindor’s points
Every school year, the four Hogwarts houses compete to win the House Cup, with points being awarded for things like exemplary academic performance and good deeds and taken away for things like rule-breaking and misbehaving.
And thanks to Harry, Ron and Hermione’s penchant for bending the rules, during the Golden Trio’s time at Hogwarts, professors — and in particular, Snape — could often be heard deducting points from Gryffindor.
Now, the “points from Gryffindor” meme can be used to express disapproval of someone else’s behavior. But it can also be flipped on its head when you want to exuberantly praise various online going-ons.
The Harry Potter meme with Hermione Granger energy
Whip smart, resourceful and as loyal as they come, Hermione Granger (played by Emma Watson in the movies) is a force to be reckoned with from the moment she makes her debut in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. As Ron (Rupert Grint) wisely tells Harry in The Deathly Hallows — Part 1 movie, “We wouldn’t last two days without her.”
So it’s no wonder that having “Hermione Granger energy” has become one of the internet’s go-to compliments for anyone deemed to be exuding a high level of intelligence — and unashamedly putting it on display.
The classic Hermione raising her hand gif can also be used to express an eagerness to volunteer for something, whatever it may be.
The brightest witch of her age, indeed.
The Harry Potter meme with Snape saying “always”
That’s right, Snape is back again, Potterheads. This time, we’re breaking down how the arguably most famous line of dialogue from the entire series, Snape telling Dumbledore (played by Michael Gambon from The Prisoner of Azkaban movie on) that he will “always” love Lily Potter, is used in meme form.
Ever felt dejectedly dedicated to seeing something through to the end? If so, this gif is for you. Or maybe you’re looking to humorously express a deep longing for something that will never be? Time to pull the Snape saying “always” meme out of your back pocket.
The Harry Potter meme where Dobby is a free elf
Without Dobby, it’s likely that all would’ve been lost in the battle against Lord Voldemort. As we all sadly know, the house elf’s heroic rescue mission to Malfoy Manor in The Deathly Hallows ultimately cost him his life, but it gave him the chance to stand up to his former abusive masters while saving Harry and his friends.
Of course, as the internet is fond of doing, they’ve since transformed Dobby’s declaration of independence, “Dobby is a free elf,” into a meme for when you’re not too fond of the idea of doing what someone has told you to.
The Harry Potter meme where Dumbledore asks if Harry put his name in the Goblet of Fire
Dumbledore confronts Harry about the Goblet of Fire spitting out Harry’s name as the final champion who will compete in the Triwizard Tournament in both the book and movie. But while the book describes Dumbledore as “calmly” asking him how it happened, Dumbledore actor Michael Gambon had a bit more of an aggressive take on the scene, i.e., storming at Harry, shaking him and shouting at him.
This discrepancy has led to a meme poking fun at how out-of-character Dumbledore’s reaction in the movie seems to many fans. The reaction gif of Dumbledore seizing and yelling at Harry can also be used in response to someone having an extreme overreaction to something.

25 Hilarious Harry Potter Memes That Change The Way We See The Franchise
On occasion, you are bound to run into something that was supposed to be funny, but it ends up making you see things differently. Memes can have that effect, too, as these are made based on franchises that can have multiple interpretations. The Harry Potter series deviated quite significantly when it came to interpreting the books to the movies. This caused a whole set of changes, and there were even some glaring clashes between the two mediums.
RELATED: The Best Harry Potter Video Games Ever Made
There are many things about the wizarding world that don’t make sense, even after we apply the logic seen in their universe. To highlight that people have created memes granting us the opportunity to interpret the differences is only grazing the surface. Then there’s also the fact that the books themselves had eccentricities that stood out. Clearly, J.K. Rowling never had any intention for people to delve so deep into the series.
Due to this, it can’t be helped that the obvious quirks have to be pointed out. After all, it only enlivens the fandom more, seeing that the series has been done and dusted since the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. Not to mention the fandom’s imagination has run wild and self-proclaimed witches and wizards residing in the muggle world tend to see Harry Potter wherever they go.
With that in mind, here are a host of Harry Potter memes that change the way we see the series, whether it be through highlighting quirks and inconsistencies or simply drawing attention to some odd truths throughout the wizarding world.
Updated September 16, 2021 by Kim Dailey: We couldn't help but notice some of these memes had grown a bit stale, so we're back with a fresh round of wizarding puns to soothe your magical souls in these dark times between wizarding world releases.
25 Forgot One Detail
In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Ron and Harry have their first major fight. The two had been really close for the first three years of their friendship, bonding almost instantly upon meeting aboard the Hogwarts Express their first year. But by the time Harry was chosen as the fourth champion in the Triwizard Tournament, Ron’s jealousy had gotten too much to control.
Harry underwent weeks of sadness over his first big fallout with his best friend, and in the books, we see him reflect how long it had been since he’d seen Ron.-- Except for the fact that they shared a dormitory! Of course, what happened was they ignored one another when sharing the same space, but when Harry warns Ron to “Stay away from (him),” that’s when he begins looking like a bit of a dunce.
24 Get With The Times
Those who have read previous Harry Potter articles will know this gripe is a most favored one. Why don’t Wizards just use the internet? It would save a whole lot of trouble. And that’s saying it lightly. What is the point of using Owls?
There’s also the time issue in that an owl will take around half a day, depending on if the location is nearby, to send one measly letter while using phones or the internet can enable Wizards to converse to their hearts delight. Not to mention the ethical concerns this brings up for the poor owls having to fly on an almost 24-hour basis as one letter is dispatched and the reply is sent back without delay.
Of course, the books do touch on this matter of animal rights by being sure to slip in that the owls were given a reprieve between deliveries. At least when noting more significant flights such as the correspondence between Harry and Sirius while his godfather was in hiding in the tropics. Fittingly, this is one specific scenario where using communication methods such as telephone or e-mail may not have been the most proficient, not to mention compromising on Sirius' behalf.
23 Open Favor
No matter how awesome Dumbledore supposedly was, we can never forgive the jerk move he pulled at the end of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. He made the Slytherins believe they had won the house cup—which they deservedly had—only to create a whole show and award Harry and his friends points for the lamest reasons ever.
This meme perfectly illustrates Dumbledore’s open favor toward the Gryffindor house. While Dumbledore never docked points from Slytherin, he always gave the Gryffindors a free pass for everything. It was no coincidence that Gryffindor won the House Cup every year Harry was in Hogwarts. Dumbledore probably made up scenarios just to award points to Harry and his friends and troll the Slytherins some more.
22 Because That's Not Noticeable At All
The Harry Potter series took a lot of liberties when it came to matters of whimsy. J.K. Rowling placed a whole set of eccentric behaviors for the wizards, and they would be shown to be completely unaware of normal Muggle practices. Even Arthur Weasley, the guy who was the head of Muggle dealings, hardly knew anything about Muggles as he is famously quoted asking Harry what the function of a rubber duck was.

One of the methods of reaching the Ministry of Magic, for those who want to be ‘inconspicuous,’ was to flush themselves down a toilet and materialize inside the Ministry. The wizards might as well be like the kid seen in the above meme as they mostly have no clue how to make themselves blend in Muggle environments.
21 Say What?
Here’s the problem with Parseltongue: How can some speak a language without having learned it? We all have our native languages, but that’s because we were raised in those environments. Take Tarzan, for instance: the guy couldn’t speak any language because he was raised by gorillas.
The justification given in the books is that it is a gift people are born with. But then Dumbledore learned the language somehow, so who taught him? There’s also the matter of how Harry can easily converse with Snakes with pinpoint accuracy. Surely he must make some mistakes. It’s not like we know every single word in English or whatever language we speak. This is why it’s humorous to think Harry may have inadvertently insulted the snake’s mother.
However, one explanation for Harry being able to speak fluent parseltongue is given in the first and second movie when Harry first expresses surprise that the snake can speak to him -- key words, "the snake can speak." And secondly, after his Dual Club demonstration against Malfoy, he tells Ron and Hermione he didn't know he was even speaking a different language. This insinuates that the gift of parseltongue is an inborn talent along with being a subconscious skill. That still leaves the matter of how Dumbledore managed to learn it, but many fans are content to write it off as suspension of disbelief due to the fact that he is indeed the one and only Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore.
20 Hermione's Feelings Towards Voldemort
It’s a shame this scenario never played out in the movies or books because it would have been one of the most legendary moments in any book series. Hermione was a know-it-all upon her first appearance in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and annoyed Ron in their Charms class by pointing out his incorrect pronunciation of the spell Wingardium Leviosa.
Voldemort wouldn’t have taken it as well as Ron did, although odds are he may have been too befuddled to act fast. For some reason, though, Hermione was always rather unnerved by Voldemort, to the point she would wince like other Wizards at the mention of his name. That doesn’t really make sense as she was raised by Muggles and had never heard of Voldemort before. She obviously read of his atrocities, but she would have read up on Grindelwald as well, and considering he committed even more heinous acts, this should have put things in a bit more perspective for her highly logic-driven mind.
19 Sums It Up Well
Tom Felton fans who’ve extended this affection to Draco Malfoy should get a load of this meme. Because truth be told, Draco was nothing more than a little runt. Even when he hesitated to end Dumbledore’s life or turn Harry in, he only did it because he was too scared.
From Books 1 to 5, all he did was act as a minor annoyance to Harry. His role was that of a cocky, snobbish child who had never experienced life’s harsh realities. Taking a peek at his POV for the first five parts gives this indication. In the sixth book, he was too absorbed with his plan to finish off Dumbledore, while in the last book, he finally saw himself as the coward he was.
18 Why Should We Care?
Dobby was only absent from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Prisoner of Azkaban as far as the books were concerned. The house-elf had sizable roles in every other book and nobly sacrificed himself in Deathly Hallows to protect Harry. His unusual friendship with Harry made it heart-wrenching to see the little elf bite the dust, but only so far as the books are concerned.
RELATED: Assassin's Creed: Valhalla Has A Neat Harry Potter Reference
However, the films spin a different tale. Dobby is completely absent from the third movie to the sixth. He springs up suddenly in Deathly Hallows – Part 1, claims he’s met Ron before, although his screentime won't prove this, and we were supposed to feel sad at his passing despite having been given no real reason to feel much for him. Seriously, all of the house elf’s big character-building moments throughout the meat of the story were cut from the movies completely. He's just some silly elf from the second movie who returns out of nowhere at the end of the series with an inexplicable burst of courage at just the right time. This is why when he passed away, he became just some Dobby we used to know.
17 Why Do People Like Him?
Albus Dumbledore was unparalleled as far as the argument for the best Headmaster in Hogwarts history was concerned. He was the most respected and most loved Headmaster the school had ever seen or would ever see.
In Harry’s first year alone, he housed a three-headed dog inside the castle, while he also sent eleven-year-olds alone in the Forbidden Forest at midnight for detention. Let’s now mention his tendency to hire professors who are most certainly either inept or evil. Quirrell had Voldemort attached to the back of his head, while Gilderoy Lockhart was a total moron. He also did nothing while Umbridge repeatedly mistreated his pupils. Though, to be fair, Umbridge wasn't exactly Dumbledore’s choice, but you could argue she was a result of his previous staffing indiscretions throughout the years.
16 A Smart Answer
This one won’t make you see the books or movies or even the characters differently. Instead, you’ll realize just how shrewd Oliver Phelps is compared to his cast members. That book would be pretty handy in that situation.
Now the thought of Daniel Radcliffe stranded on an island reading The Old Man and the Sea, or Emma Watson stuck in the middle of nowhere with a Jilly Cooper novel, makes them look rather silly. Then again, a vast majority of the people asked this question would most certainly have given a similar manner of answer as the cast members had. What’s confirmed is that only Phelps would escape after having built his raft.
15 School Is For Study
It might seem like a cruel slight at Harry, who only ever wanted to feel at home at Hogwarts, but this response is factually appropriate. Harry’s tenure at Hogwarts was marred by one problem after another, which no doubt would have inhibited not only his own studies but the rest of the schools as well.
From the get-go, Harry would find himself in undesirable positions, ending with Voldemort being revealed behind it all.
But Harry’s not altogether innocent either as the boy had a habit of chasing after dangerous situations. He enjoyed the thrill of the chase and, as Hermione put it, had a problem with wanting to be the hero. There were more than several chapters where Harry would neglect schoolwork in favor of plotting a plan to infiltrate some part of the school. By the seventh year, there was no education at Hogwarts at all. Hopefully, now that Harry’s gone, newly attending witches and wizards can actually attend to their studies.
14 Taking Things Literal
The only way this meme will make you see the series differently is to begin taking the titles in the literal sense. The meme does this and creates a scenario where Fawkes the Phoenix commands an order for dinner with the Golden Trio delivering the Order of the Phoenix to him.
Regardless, this should remind those of us who remember times before the last book was out of the years’ worth of guessing it took to figure out what the upcoming book’s title meant. In 2004, speculation was rife whether the Half-Blood Prince in the sixth novel would be Harry himself or Voldemort, and everyone turned out wrong when he was revealed as Snape instead.
13 Not All Fun And Games
This meme was never made with the intention of interpretation. Rather it was merely another cat picture on the internet with a cute title. Harry Potter fans will understand in a jiffy why a kitten is supposedly Minerva McGonagall’s baby photo. The Hogwarts Headmistress was a gifted Animagus who used her talent to make an entrance in the very first class she taught in Ron and Harry's first year.
In Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban, the nature of animagi was elaborated upon and reached head-scratching levels in Goblet of Fire when Rita Skeeter was revealed as an animagus who turns into a bug to spy on people for stories. This begs the question of whether someone could turn similarly into an aunt and infiltrate anyone’s house for robbery or basically anything. Are there any safeguards for potential rogue animagi?
That’s a pretty serious issue if you think about it. Luckily the Ministry of Magic isn't altogether daft and put in place a mandatory animagi registry. And with the Ministry’s ability to detect underage sorcery, there must be some measure to catch those who think to evade registering. J.K. Rowling, another explanation, please?
12 Sorted In The Wrong House
The attributes of a Slytherin were completely lost by the time Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ended. By that point, the only defining feature prominent about the Slytherin house is its tendency to produce evil wizards.
But all they seem to do is engage in evil activities and harbor a large tenacity for cowardice. Tom Riddle was supposed to be the smartest boy to attend Hogwarts since Dumbledore, yet we hardly ever saw him devise any clever schemes in his quest for power.
Later on, Voldemort’s elaborate plans always involved capturing Harry, after which he would try to use force to end the boy’s life. Rather than a calculated and cunning Slytherin, he is more like a Gryffindor who lets his emotions take charge and jump headfirst into battle. He certainly wasn’t lacking in the ambition department, though.
11 A Genius Theory
Sometimes fan theories can inadvertently reach genius levels even if they were meant as a joke. Take this theory, for instance, that claims Voldemort was bald so that no one could impersonate him. It’s a viable assumption, as smart-minded wizards like Kingsley Shacklebolt could easily have posed as the Dark Lord and influenced his subjects.
Getting Voldemort’s hair was a task easier said than done, though. But a wizard the caliber of Dumbledore could have easily gotten it, especially during the battle at the Ministry of Magic in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It’s interesting to imagine what the Wizard war would have been like had the good guys had access to Voldemort’s hair to use for a Polyjuice potion.
10 He Said Irately
This meme was created because the movie franchise side blinded fans of the book with a completely contradictory depiction of Dumbledore in the Goblet of Fire. It is an oversight many still hold against the creators to this day. The new Dumbledore we got starting from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was a more commanding figure than the first two movies. He had a knack for being more aggressive and would shout at the most trivial of matters.
Harry had just been chosen as the fourth champion for the Triwizard tournament. He was already in an unenviable position, with many claiming he was a cheat who had hoodwinked himself into the competition. In the books, Dumbledore had been comforting at that moment, while in the movie, Richard Harris' Dumbledore charged at Harry, bellowing at the boy in inquiry whether he had put his name in the Goblet of Fire.
9 I Didn’t Sign Up For This
This one requires a dual knowledge of both the wizarding world and the RPG The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, but if you’ve got both, you’ll know this meme is brilliant.
The witcher Geralt is a mutant, a trained and honed killing machine. And while his profession requires him to remain unbiased, Nilfgaard is widely regarded as the ‘evil’ nation in The Witcher universe. So naturally, Geralt has been contracted to slay his fair share of Nilfgaardian soldiers.
Now, Geralt is bloody good at his job, and most soldiers in The Witcher 3, regardless of their allegiance, are more or less bumbling buffoons, making any encounters between the two quick, bloody, and largely one-sided.
Well, Ron never was the brawniest, brainiest, or even bravest wizard among them, which already puts him about on par with a Nilfgaardian soldier. Not to mention the face Ron is making in this frame fits perfectly on a fresh Nilfgaardian recruit who’s about to have his head lopped off.
However, if we delve a little further, there’s another parallel to be drawn between an untrained soldier and how Ron is always roped into Harry’s adventures since their very first year at Hogwarts. This specific scenario at the start of Harry and Ron’s second year, where the two encounter a near-death experience before even setting foot on the school grounds, is probably about the time Ron would’ve been thinking, ‘I didn’t sign up for this!’
8 But Did You Die?
A hugely popular meme, usually reserved for those friends who blur the lines between stunt driving and a death wish, is wholly applicable to Harry’s logic in the naming of his son, Albus Severus Potter.
As we just finished discussing with the previous meme, Ron has been at Harry’s side since they met on the Hogwart’s Express in their first year. But despite sacrificing himself in a live Wizard Chess match, almost dying en route to school their second year, multiple dangerous excursions into the Forbidden Forest, breaking into the Ministry, fighting Deatheaters, going on the run, and a slew of other mortal peril instances, Ron gets overlooked when it comes time to award the honor of a namesake.
Otherwise, why wouldn’t he have thought of his best mate? Ron is literally Albus’ Potter’s actual uncle -- by blood! We could also extend the injustice to Hagrid, for that matter. The gamekeeper was always lookin’ out fer ‘arry and could be considered one of the closest things to a father figure Harry ever had.
Following this logic, however, Albus Severus would’ve been Albus Severus Ronald Rubeus Potter, which certainly would’ve rivaled the boy’s first namesake for being a mouthful. So we can see why Harry decided to narrow it down.
Well, deepest sympathies Hagrid and Ron, but did you die?
7 Liberating Or Kidnapping?
Speaking of Hagrid, we’re obviously not the only ones to question if Hagrid’s approach to liberating Harry from the Dursleys and dropping the bombshell, “Y’er a wizard,” was the most tactful.
But that’s not something young Harry is going to remember ten years later. A mistreated 11-year-old child likely isn’t going to trust a hulking giant who breaks down the door and starts waving a pink umbrella around, throwing threats, and claiming the child is a magical being.
No, in all likelihood, the boy would’ve run or hid, knowing the Dursleys wouldn’t protect him. To Harry’s credit, he did hide, at first. But we’re still not sure if a half-smushed birthday cake and a hand-written letter from another unknown proclaimed wizard should be enough to prove you’re no kidnapper.
6 James or Lily?
Being privy to the catastrophic events that catalyzed Harry’s path in life straight from the cradle and having known the boy’s parents, Professor McGonagall was most certainly invested in who Harry Potter would grow up to be.
This meme depicts, with shrewd accuracy, Minerva McGonagall’s thought progression as Harry made his introduction into the wizarding world. In his first year, Harry seemed to be a golden child, experiencing the wizarding world for the first time while also learning of his famed and tragic past. He was even a natural Quidditch player, Minerva’s treasured sport.
Though Harry’s aptitude for Quidditch was much like his father, James’, the boy generally didn’t seem to seek out trouble in his first year, though it certainly found him easily enough. But that all changed when Harry made an entrance at Hogwarts the next year by crashing a flying car onto the school grounds, and the troubles he got entangled in as the year ensued. Within his first two years at Hogwarts, Professor McGonagall had seen both sides to Harry Potter and most assuredly had altered her opinion on which parent he was going to take after.
Squid Game has now been recreated in Roblox, Fortnite, and also on PS1. Well, sort of.

Dumbledore and Gandalf are oftentimes compared to each other due to their similar appearance, power, and wisdom, which means they can also be used to replace one another in memes such as this one. For those who don't have an interest in either fandom, it's easy to confuse the actors and characters, and for those who do, it's a joke that never wearies.
8 Harry Potter & Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Hogwartsninenine combines Brooklyn Nine-Ninequotes with moments in the Harry Potter series to create interestingly accurate inaccurate memes. This particular quote is spoken by Jake Peralta in season 2 episode 'AC/DC'.

In the crossover scene chosen, Ron takes Peralta's line as he sits in the Hogwarts' hospital wing in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The reactions on Hermione, Harry, and Dumbledore's faces fit perfectly in the scenario.
7 What Unfortunately Didn't Actually Happen
Although many would love this sassy Dumbledore occurrence to have actually happened in the book, it didn't. Floccinaucinihilipilificationa has created an instance where Dumbledore takes Harry to a court hearing as a translator. Why? Because Dumbledore can't talk to snakes but Harry is a Parseltongue.. and anyone standing against Dumbledore must be a snake. The court hearing calls into question Dumbledore's Headmaster methods and staff choices, and although it's justified, Dumbledore isn't taking any of it.
6 An Alternate Hermione
If this meme was right, Hermione would be the true villain of the Harry Potter series. As a new wizard entering the Wizarding World, Harry was very trusting of those around him, especially when he had just as many enemies as allies. If Hermione was not a kind and moral character, she very easily could have been an unsuspecting force of great power for the Dark Arts. However, this luckily isn't the case, with Hermione simply fixing Harry's glasses with her magic.
5 The Life Of Kylo
Kylo Ren is a dark warrior and a Master of the Knights of Ren in the Star Wars universe. It is in this meme that Kylo Ren is compared in physical appearance, mainly the dark hair straight hair, chin, and eyes, to a possible younger and older version of himself. The younger version is Mike, one of the main characters in the television series Stranger Things, and the older version is Potions Master Snape from Harry Potter. The meme takes their varying ages to create a timeline of Kylo's life.
4 Voldemort's Table
Voldemort is a dramatic person and it wouldn't be a great leap for him to say "you can't sit with us," as this meme shows. The quote is taken from the moment in Mean Girls where Gretchen tells Regina she can't sit at their table because of the rules. But Voldemort is also someone who welcomes allegiance to the Dark Arts as shown during his recruitment speech in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II.
3 You're A Jedi Harry
This meme from 9GAG takes the wrong fandom to the extreme, mashing together four different universes to make an incorrect yet oddly understandable meme. The original quote, "you're a wizard Harry," spoken by Hagrid from Harry Potter has been changed to "you're a Jedi Harry," by Mr. Spock.

Jedis are from the Star Wars universe while Spock is from the Star Trek universe. This quote has been paired with a photo of Frodo Baggins wearing glasses and a Gryffindor tie while holding a lightsaber.
2 Get In Loser. We're Going Shopping!
Tayyyyyy-13-blog has combined the classic Mean Girls Regina George quote, "get in loser. We're going shopping," with the window rescue scene in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. This comparison works perfectly with the situation as the Weasley brothers - Fred, George, and Ron, all drive up to an unsuspecting Harry's window to save him from the Dursleys. The true natures of the characters from each fandom are vastly different despite their commonality of welcoming someone new into their existing circle.
1 Red Shirt
We-do-it's meme combines the Harry Potter universe with Star Trek logic, which unfortunately doesn't spare Cedric Diggory's life. In the Star Trek universe, those who are killed off in episodes and seen as expendable are often wearing red shirts. When a situation needs casualties to show how serious things are becoming, a red shirt is often the one who doesn't make it to the end of the episode. In the Harry Potter universe, however, Harry is wearing a red shirt while Cedric is wearing yellow, but it is Cedric who dies.
