Harry Potter World Cup: Voldemort Vs. Sirius

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!

Some say that revenge is a dish best served cold. Sirius says it’s a dish best served Black. Having defeated his own cousin in an appropriately tight race, the wrongfully convicted Prisoner of Azkaban returns to the Harry Potter World Cup and has his sights set on Lord Voldemort, the evil sorcerer who just finished killing James Potter for a second time. The blood’s about to spill…

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.

(2) Lord Voldemort vs. (3) Sirius Black
Tom Riddle, you disappoint me. Sure, you were able to move past Moaning Myrtle and James Potter to make it into the Sweet 16, but not without a serious amount of difficulty. I mean, really… beating James by only two votes? That’s the best you can do? Maybe the Dark Lord isn’t up to the task when it comes to the Harry Potter World Cup. He’ll certainly have to step up his game if he’s to stand a chance against Sirius Black, one of the most widely worshiped characters in all of “Potter” thanks to his skills as an animagus, his closeness to Harry and his parents, and his tragic demise in “Order of the Phoenix.” The falsely accused but ultimately redeemed Sirius could very well be the man to put an end to Voldemort’s reign of terror once and for all.
