Although every single House at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry has its pluses and pitfalls, it seems fair to say that there is no Hogwarts House that is more revered and idolized than Gryffindor.
Founded by Godric Gryffindor at the inception of Hogwarts, Gryffindor House is home to the witches and wizards that are brave and chivalrous most of all. So, it comes as no surprise that many of the most famous and powerful magicians in the wizarding world come from Gryffindor. However, which memorable House Gryffindor alumni are actually the most powerful witches and wizards in House history?
Hagrid is obviously no slouch when it comes to basic magical skills, and honestly, his talents with magical creatures make him considerably more powerful than he would be on his own.
However, the fact is that he’s still just a natural-born wizard who got a few years of a Hogwarts education before being unfairly and unceremoniously kicked out of school, which leaves him lagging behind most other iconic Gryffindors in terms of power.
The fact that Neville could even be considered as one of the less powerful members of Gryffindor house is a testament to the insane skills of this squad. But the fact is, Neville really had to grow into his wizarding abilities.
Of course, he became one of the most powerful and legendary Gryffindors of all time, even destroying one of Voldemort’s Horcruxes, but he was so far behind the average when it came to displaying his magic, his family started to suspect he may have been a squib.
Ron Weasley is a certified badass who could likely take on nearly every witch or wizard he faces off with, and he’s a key member of one of the most important trios in wizarding history.
However, he is probably the weakest member of the Golden Trio when it comes to power. His magical talent might be on par with Harry or Hermione, but his lack of fundamental knowledge leaves him trailing behind.
