Harry Potter World Cup: Snape Vs. Flitwick

Welcome to MTV’s Harry Potter World Cup! We’ve selected 64 of the best “Harry Potter” characters and matched them up in a series of duels for a chance at magical glory, but it’s up to YOU to decide who the greatest “Potter” character of all time is in this pool of wizards and witches. Will the Death Eaters destroy Hogwarts, or will good triumph over evil? In the end, the choice is yours, so keep voting at MTV Movies Blog and make your voice heard!

Once again, it’s a battle between Hogwarts faculty members in this second round match-up of the Privet Drive division. Except this time, underdog Professor Flitwick — who surprisingly squeaked past the higher-seeded Professor Trelawney with little resistance in round one — has a steeper hill to climb as he faces Potions master and Dumbledore slayer (or is it euthanizer?) Severus Snape. Is the outcome of this battle already etched in blood, or does the Charms master have a chance?

Voting for all second round match-ups will close on Friday, July 1 at 12:01 AM EST, so make sure to start voting now. You can follow all of the duels right here.

(2) Severus Snape vs. (10) Professor Flitwick
The pint-sized Flitwick displayed great power and perseverance in his first round match-up against Divination expert Sybill Trelawney, but he’s going to have to dig much, much deeper if he wants to beat the solemn Severus Snape. Those who’ve read the books know that, hey, Snape isn’t such a bad guy after all, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a threat to take seriously. Indeed, in some circles, he’s considered a favorite to win the World Cup. With those kinds of odds in his favor, Snape’s bound to pose a particularly problematic dilemma for dear old Flitwick.
