Top 7 Harry Potter Memes

Harry Potter has had twenty plus years to percolate in popular culture, and it’s produced a lot of content, including memes. Here are some funny ones.

 

He Takes His Job Seriously

The last thing Snape needs is art teacher vibes. I hate to let them down! It does make me feel like I understand Neville’s suffering though. Once in grade school, an art teacher told me I was bad at collages. I was stunned. I’m just glad I didn’t need to eat it.

I’ve always said, if you can’t beat them, annoy them. It might not kill Voldy to get his name wrong, but I can’t imagine him reacting calmly. Sometimes you don’t need actual magic, just a really sick burn. Think of “no need to call me sir, professor.”

 

 

I’ve Connected Them!

Dumbledore, you ridiculous jumble of contradictions and eccentricities. Say what you will about Dumbledore and the wisdom of his choices either way, but he is objectively a TERRIBLE judge of character. Think of Quirrell.

 

 

Grammar is Life

While this isn’t cannon… it’s cannon. It would be so like Hermione to just absolutely reject being killed by a mispronounced spell. Like, kill me, sure, but do it right. Here, let me help you with your murder technique. She just really couldn’t watch someone flounder.

 

 

There’s a Reason He’s Not in Ravenclaw

Obviously danger does follow Harry, but Harry does also follow danger. Like, anything dangerous happens, and Harry is like *butterfly meme* “Is this a situation I should get involved in?” I guess it’s what Godric Gryffindor would have wanted?

 

 

When you and Your Roommate fight

I think we’ve all been there. Just pointedly staring at undone dishes and listening to top 40 music from across a small apartment. What are you guys going to do, slam your curtains? Hum loudly? You’ve got real problems, work it out!

 

Hermione’s always Been Metal

I mean, yeah, it would have made for a much shorter book, but I’m also not convinced it didn’t happen. Hermione is the sort of person who would be like “this is something I’ve been working on, it’s just simple” and then summon a dragon or something.

Can You Resist Bookstores? No? Then These Memes Are For You!

We’re all book nerds here, so I’m sure I’m in good company. The only thing I love more than a good meme is a good bookstore. Why not combine the two? If you, like me, can’t control yourself in a bookstore, these memes are for you.

 

 

The best invite

Yes. Yes I do. Also I have zero chill. Any self control I may usually use is just gone. Maybe I’m the only one, but if I even pass a bookstore in the street I have to be gently steered away, or sometimes physically dragged. The pure glee on her face really says it all. And those are good friends right there.

 

 

I know all I need to

All books are queens, and you know it. Sure, I can spend eight plus hours just looking around, but do I need to? I already want them all. The only limit is how many books I can physically take home on the subway, and even that barrier doesn’t get a lot of respect. Sure, I’m sorry by the time I get home, but when I’m deciding, no one can stop me.

 

 

Ancient wisdom

Sure, it’s three pm on a Tuesday, and I’m drinking bubble tea, but I think I still look mysterious and wise. The books are used. That means they’re old and dramatic, regardless of the particular facts. I may not have the mysterious potion or the rocking beard, but I’m not going to let that stop me.

 

 

I’ve put a lot of thought in, and decided

Now you may ask, when are you going to read them? Where are they going to go in your apartment? These minor logistics aren’t my concern right now. I’ve read the backs, and I’ve decided the best book in the store is all of them. At once. Right now. No, I don’t take criticism.

 

 

Nothing can stop me accept…

As long as I have blood plasma to sell, I have book money, but unfortunately most shops won’t take it directly. It’s dangerous to even go in, why did no one warn me? You did, and I ugly cried in the street until you caved? Agree to disagree. But I will be back.

 

 

Ready to investigate?

These bookstores think they’re so clever. And they are. I mean, are those even mystery books? We don’t know. We’ll likely never know. Unless someone wants to go full Sherlock Holmes and get into the truth of this. Volunteers, please send an owl posthaste.

5 of the Coolest Creatures in ‘Harry Potter’

The Harry Potter universe is home a myriad of imaginative and spectacular creatures, some drawn from folklore while others spring forth from J.K. Rowling’s own mind. These are some of the best monsters found in the pages of Harry Potter’s complex universe, from the big to the small.

 

1. House Elf

House elves are one of the most famous creations in the Harry Potter universe, an ever present part of the world since the second book, Chamber of Secrets. House elves are magical creatures that exist to serve, acting as servants for various households throughout the wizarding world. House elves have to obey their masters command, with their rules designating that they must obey any orders given. House elves take rules so strictly that they will punish themselves if they ever disobey an order. If a house elf is ever freed, they must be given close to do so but most elves view this as a deep punishment to seat loose. The most famous house elves in the series are Dobby, former servant of the Malfoys who befriends Harry and Kreacher, Sirius Black’s mistreated house elf. Honorable mention goes to Twinky, Dobby’s girlfriend, a depressed house elf who works at Hogwarts and was, tragically, omitted from the films.

 

2. Dementor

One of the most infamous and terrifying creatures in the Potterverse, Dementors feed on the negative emotions of others.  J.K. Rowling has confirmed the monsters were inspired by depression, and cause their victims to feel the complete absence of hope and good feelings. Dementors also have an ability called the Dementor’s Kiss, which allows them to drain the soul out of a person and leave them an empty shell. Dementors initially are the guards of Azkaban but later switch sides to ally with Voldemort, who allows them to feed on Muggle victims.

 

3. Acromatula

Acromatulas are giant spiders, thought to be created through illegal wizard breeding and have a taste of human flesh. The most famous acromatulas is the character of Aragog, who Hagrid raised and released it into the Forbidden Forest. Aragog forms his own colony of acromatulas who dwell within the forest. Harry and Ron have a run in with the

 

4. Basilisk

A fearsome giant snake, the Basilisk was bred by dark wizards and is known as the ‘King of Serpents.’ The Basilisk can kill its victim if they look it in the eyes but indirect contact (such as seeing its reflection) will only petrify the victim, leaving them paralyzed instead of dead. Their venom is only extremely deadly, only able to be cured through Phoenix Tears. The Basilisk’s famous role comes as an antagonist of The Chamber of Secrets, where the ghost of Tom Riddle releases it from the titular chamber upon Hogwarts. No one is killed by the monster, only Petrified, before Harry confronts and slays the Basilisk in a showdown inside the Chamber.

 

5. Thestral

Thestrals are winged horses, with skeletal-like bodies and large bat-like wings. They are seen as omens by the Ministry of Magic because they can only been seen by those that have witnessed death. Harry, Luna, and Neville are some of the students who can see them due their traumatic pasts. In actuality, thestrals are intelligent and able to discern friend from foe. They aid Harry and his friends multiple times, often being used as methods of transportation across vast distances.
