Severus Snape has endured a turbulent arc throughout the “Harry Potter” series, but when it comes to the Harry Potter World Cup, he’s been coasting by just fine. But all of that is likely to change now that he’s up against fan-favorite character Dobby the House Elf, the one creature standing between the Potions master and the Elite Eight.

(2) Severus Snape vs. (6) Dobby the House Elf
This isn’t an easy choice. Dobby’s a clear fan-favorite, having sacrificed his life for Harry in a moment of great need. That said, Snape essentially did the exact same thing — despite his icy demeanor, the Slytherin wizard lived and died for the Boy Who Lived thanks to the love he had in his heart for Harry’s mother. Two characters, both of them adored by the vast majority of “Potter” fandom. Alas, only one can survive into the next round… who’s it going to be?
