(3) Sirius Black vs. (6) Nymphadora Tonks
Though this duel isn’t quite as cruel as the ongoing battles between George and Ginny and Fred and Arthur, it’s still difficult to watch cousins Sirius and Tonks contend with one another. Both are powerful magicians with strong spirits and good hearts, but only one of these two Dumbledore loyalists can advance to the Sweet 16 — and you can count on both of them to fight for that right with all of their might.
