Poor Arthur Weasley. He already fought and defeated one of his many children, Percy, in the last round of the Harry Potter World Cup. And now as he enters round two of the Hogsmeade division, he once again finds himself wand to wand against a fellow Weasley — and this time, his victory won’t come so easily.

(4) Fred Weasley vs. (5) Arthur Weasley
Arthur has several things going for him: he has experience, he works for the Ministry of Magic, he’s a father figure to just about everybody… but does any of that matter when he’s up against Fred? The Weasley twins are two of the most popular characters in all of “Potter,” and given the way that things work out for Fred in “Deathly Hallows Part 2,” fan support could well be on his side. Again, as is the case in George versus Ginny, it’s an ugly throwdown between two beloved characters… but only one of these Weasleys can advance to the Sweet 16.
