Harry Potter: 8 Things Wrong With The Chosen One We Choose To Ignore

Featured Video

Harry Potter is a well-made and absolute masterpiece that will have a place in our hearts forever and there are fans who watch and read it even after decades. Being a huge Potterhead, I miss their trio badly and want a reunion. But, there are some things that bother me even today. So, here are 8 things we chose to ignore in Harry Potter.


1) No basic education for wizards – Muggles are often looked down by the wizarding community, and they live a backward life.

2) Harry Potter always wears glasses – Lots of people wear glasses, and it’s perfectly alright. But, it’s different in Harry’s case. He wears broken glasses, and they always cause issues. It seems so strange that the wizarding community does not have any spell to fix his vision.


3) Harry and his friends didn’t complete their education at Hogwarts – Harry attends all the classes in Hogwarts till the sixth novel Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. In the final novel, Harry, Hermoine, and Ron stops attending classes at Hogwarts in order to save the world from Voldemort.

4) Harry didn’t utilize the modern muggle technology – Being a kid in both the muggle and wizard worlds, Harry fails to use the muggle technology. In the final novel, Harry becomes helpless and vulnerable, and he didn’t even think of taking the help of muggles and use their advanced technology like jets and missiles.

 5) Harry rarely rides his broom – One of the major attractions of the movie is the Quidditch sequences. Harry got great skills in riding broom, and he rarely uses it. During the boss fight with Voldemort, he could have easily defeated him by using his broom.

Go Harry Go!

6) Harry doesn’t even have a plan to defeat Voldemort – In Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince, Albus Dumbledore makes everything clear to Harry in order to beat Voldemort. It felt odd that one who has the ability to change the fate of the entire world doesn’t have any plan or strategy to kill the evil.

7) Harry doesn’t style his hair – Harry’s hair is one of the major physical descriptions throughout the series. But he always leaves his hair messy, and it is perfectly fine as a kid. However, he should probably have tried out different hairstyles.

8) Harry was responsible for the Battle Of Hogwarts – This scene was absolutely a fan moment. It felt like the whole series was heading towards this one epic scene. Harry, Ron, and Hermoine return to Hogwarts to find the last Horcrux. Though Harry could have easily avoided this conflict by staying lowkey, instead he chose to announce his presence to everyone in Hogwarts.
