No one just likes Harry Potter. No, if you’re a fan of the Harry Potter series you love Harry Potter. You re-read the books, watch the movies multiples times, log into Pottermore, visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at least once, and consume every morsel J.K. Rowling doles out.
You also post on Reddit boards with hyper specific ratings like one user who ranked Harry’s level of sass in each book. You may have your favorite version of Harry, but do you know how sassy you like your Harry? Luckily InquisitorCOC broke it down for us.
Citing prime examples from the books, we learn when Harry peaked as a sassy teen. We also learn the moment Harry grew up to save the world, but still delivered some sass when necessary. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was Harry at his least sassiest, with InquisitorCOC writing, “overall good but not with as much of an Oomph™ factor as the sorcerer’s stone. 5/10.”
Meanwhile fan-favorite Half-Blood Prince showcased Harry as a petty king (Drake take notes) when he ended Severus Snape’s life with this comeback, “No need to call me ‘Sir,” Professor.” As InquisitorCOC wrote, “SO FAR OFF THE SCALE IT’S ON MARS. INFINITY/10.”
Here’s a full list of the rankings:
7. The Chamber of Secrets: 5/10
6. The Sorcerer’s Stone: 6/10
5. The Prisoner of Azkaban (tied): 8/10
4. The Deathly Hallows (tied): 8/10
3. The Goblet of Fire: 9/10
2. The Order of the Phoenix: 100/10
1. The Half-Blood Prince: INFINITY/10
