To fight against the world’s most dangerous sorcerer Lord Voldemort and his army, indeed takes a lot of courage. Especially, to be in Dumbledore’s Army, standing up to Professor Umbridge and the ministry. Nevertheless, they were willing to fight and defy the rules to prepare for the war; they’re surely the definition of the bravest of students Hogwarts has ever seen.
Here’s the list of the members ranked by bravery.
Marietta Edgecombe: She was one of the many characters who didn’t make it to the movies, but she’s easily the least brave in the Dumbledore’s army. She later betrays the army by turning them in to Umbridge out of fear of her mother losing her job and to save herself from trouble.
Cho Chang: Cho shows sincere intentions of joining the Dumbledore’s Army. Although her reasons are more motivated by the death of Cedric, she worked hard in the army. She was also brave enough to be a part of the final battle of Hogwarts. However, in the movies, she turned the DA in under the influence of the truth serum.
Katie Bell: A brilliant quidditch player who played alongside Harry and later became the student who accidentally got cursed by the necklace. She joined the army without any hesitation and proved to be a fierce fighter, despite all her injuries even in the final battle.
Colin Creevey: He is best known for following Harry and taking pictures of him, but he was braver than one must’ve thought. Sneaking into the castle for the battle indeed made him fearless. But, unfortunately, he died in the war.
Luna Lovegood: She is one of the most courageous fighters in the army. She has a unique ability to stay calm and is always willing to stand up to fight against Death Eaters. It was because of her peaceful nature, she was able to help Harry find a Horcrux.
Ron Weasley: He is undoubtedly one of the bravest since he was always willing to stand with his friends at every moment of the fight. He showed courage and a strong will to move forward even when he felt scared, even throughout his school years.
Ginny Weasley: Her place in this list is indeed deserving as after her encounter with Voldemort in the second part, she became a devoted fighter against him. Unfortunately, she didn’t get much chance to show her bravery in the movies, but she never backed down.
Hermione Granger: She is, without a doubt, one of the bravest. While she is often terrified, she never backs down from doing the right thing. Her smartness and sacrifices helped the golden trio defeat the Dark Lord as she was the one to create Dumbledore’s army in the first place.
Harry Potter: The leader of the army who, till now, has faced more dangers than anyone else in the army. He never failed to do the right thing, even when it was hard. Harry was brave enough to face death and successfully defeated Voldemort.
Neville Longbottom: He proved to be the bravest member of all but he never got the same attention as Harry. Yet, he never backed down and stayed back at Hogwarts to encourage younger students and stood up to face Voldemort alone in battle.
