Harry Potter World Cup: Ron Vs. Fred

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!

The Harry Potter World Cup has had its brutal moments, particularly for the Weasley clan. The red-headed wizarding family has seen its own turned against each other round after round, and once again, we see two Weasley siblings — the only remaining twin, Fred, and Harry’s best friend Ron — going up against each other on their quest for eternal World Cup glory.

Voting for all Sweet 16 duels closes on Wednesday, July 6 at 12:01 AM EST, so make sure to start voting now. You can follow all of the action right here.

(1) Ron Weasley vs. (4) Fred Weasley
Fred never had his twin brother’s help to begin with, but now that George is out of the competition (which, I suppose, answers this lingering question), he’s the only Weasley twin still standing — which is ironic on at least one spoilery level. But Fred’s defied the odds before, and perhaps he can do it again as he steps into the ring against Ron Weasley, the Gryffindor hero that represents the heart of the “Potter” story in many fans’ opinions. So, who do you vote for: the brother who means the most to the tale of Harry Potter, or the one who always makes us laugh? We’ll find out shortly!

Having trouble deciding? Consult our Harry Potter World Cup experts from MuggleNet, The Leaky Cauldron, DanRadcliffe.com, RupertGrint.net and MTV News for their insight!
