Harry Potter: The Best Students In Gryffindor Ranked By Their Grades

Gryffindors are known to be the brave, the endearing, and apparently the ones who get themselves into a lot of trouble. However, judging by the core cast of the Harry Potter phenomenon, it’s abundantly clear that Gryffindors are rather intelligent as well. Ravenclaw can’t have all of the mastery and wit. Hermione is living proof of that, and if not for her and her valiant instincts, she would no doubt be in the house of Rowena Ravenclaw.

People automatically assume that Hermione has the best grades; after all, she is the brightest witch of her age. Others are also quick to assume that Neville and Seamus are amongst the worst Gryffindor students, despite the fact that Ron and Harry adamantly refuse to do their homework time and time again. So, do you want to know who the true academic scholars of Gryffindor are? Here are the best students in Gryffindor ranked by their grades

10 Fred and George Weasley

Fred and George Weasley end up doing pretty well for themselves. They open up their Weasley‘s Wizarding Wheezes joke shop, in a prime spot in Diagon Alley no less. They are able to do this with Harry’s monetary help, but it was their own brilliant concoctions that made the shop take off.

Despite their humorous brilliance, Fred and George weren’t really known for their grades at Hogwarts. Before abandoning their education forever, they had to take their O.W.Ls. Both of them each earn three passing grades in Herbology, Charms, and Defense Against the Dark Arts courses.

9 Dean Thomas

Dean Thomas, one of Harry and Ron‘s closest friends and former boyfriend to Ginny Weasley, did just about the same as the Weasley twins. Dean does moderately well at Hogwarts, but like Harry and Ron, he has a knack for slacking off. But thanks to Dumbledore’s Army, Dean is able to get an O.W.L in Charms, Defense Against the Dark Arts, and Transfiguration.

8 Parvati Patil

Padme and Parvati Patel are both shown as Gryffindors in the films, however, in the books, it’s only Parvati that belongs to Gryffindor house. Just like the rest of Dumbledore‘s Army, she was able to maintain stable grades and get three O.W.Ls. She received these in Transfiguration and, of course, Defense Against the Dark Arts.

Parvati also had taken a liking to Professor Trelawney and her Divination class according to the books, and truly believed in her Sight. Which is why Parvati enthusiastically took her Divination O.W.L. and passed with flying colors.

7 Seamus Finnegan

Seamus has a knack for blowing things up, even in instances involving a simple feather. Despite being forever remembered as the kid who is better at explosions than making adequate potions, his grades weren’t all that bad.

His initial amateur one waving skills improve over time and Seamus is able to secure a passing O.W.L during his Charms exam. He also obtains one for Transfiguration and Defense Against the Dark Arts.

6 Neville Longbottom

Neville may be forgetful, but he’s a pretty smart cookie. Neville begins to show his strength as both a leader and a student later in the series, despite professors like Snape continuously calling him out on his poor performance.

RELATED: Stranger Things: 10 Best Episodes, Ranked

In his sixth year, Neville is able to get four O.W.Ls, all passing grades. He never went on to take his N.E.W.T.S,  but he still went on to be an Auror and later, a professor of Herbology at Hogwarts. It just goes to show that you don’t need to have good grades in school in order to be successful.

5 Ron Weasley

Ron Weasley is a terrible student. Time and time again, he would have Hermione help with his assignments, if not full on allowing her to do the work for him. Ron also shows pretty poor wizarding skills in his younger years, though this is owing to the fact that his first wand is a hand-me-down and isn’t fitting to him specifically. But after some practice, some discipline, and a wand of his own, Ron proves himself to be a pretty good Hogwarts student. He got seven out of twelve O.W.Ls and in his sixth year and went on to be an Auror despite slacking off during his Hogwarts days.

4 Harry Potter

Harry has proven his intelligence over various situations, despite also being somewhat of a lackluster student (and also frequently having Hermione doublecheck his schoolwork). Then again, Harry has always had his fair share of extracurricular activities; learning to fight off dementors, Occlumency classes with Snape, and hunting down Horcruxes.

RELATED: Harry Potter: 10 Facts About Hermione They Leave Out in the Movies

Harry has shown that he is capable of ridiculous amounts of magical talent despite his age and while always remaining in Hermione’s shadow. That being said, it’s not really a surprise that Harry receives seven passing O.W.Ls.

3 Hermione Granger

Hermione is dangerously obsessive about her grades. She even convinces his Professor McGonagall to give her a Time-Turner so that she can take two extra classes each semester. She is always reading, always educating herself, and seems to be a natural when it comes to picking up spells and charms.

RELATED: Star Trek: The 10 Smartest Characters, Ranked

Hermione is so dedicated to her education, that even after receiving ten passing O.W.L scores in her sixth year and going on to help defeat Voldemort in her seventh, she returns to Hogwarts specifically to take her N.E.W.TS. Which, naturally, she does fantastic in. Hermione has worn a lot of hats since her Hogwarts days, but her most recent is acting Minister of Magic.

2 Percy Weasley

Percy Weasley somehow manages to obtain twelve out of twelve O.W.Ls while attending Hogwarts. It seems like an impossible feat, especially considering that even Hermione could not do this with the Time-Turner. However, Percy‘s education and career always take a front seat, pushing his social life and even his family to the back burner. Percy has always been immensely proud of his accomplishments at Hogwarts, first making Prefect, followed by becoming Head Boy of Gryffindor house, until he eventually landed multiple jobs within the Ministry of Magic.

1 Bill Weasley

Bill is a quiet and refined Weasley. Audiences get to see more of him after his wedding and during his active role in the Order of the Phoenix. Bill Weasley graduated Hogwarts well before his brother Ron arrived, but not before making a lasting impression on the house of Godric Gryffindor. Bill Weasley also earns twelve out of twelve O.W.Ls at school, which is probably why he is able to immediately start working for the Ministry as a Curse-Breaker. His job is to break curses that are on objects within the vaults. This job requires him to be overly educated in not only in Charms and Defense Against the Dark Arts, but also in subjects such as Ancient Runes and History of Magic. All of which Bill receives passing grades for as a Gryffindor.

Popular Characters Sorted Into Their Hogwarts HousesOnl

Most of us know Ryan Murphy as the TV Renaissance man behind anthology series American Horror Story and American Crime Story, as well as the smash-hit musical series Glee. However, few remember Murphy’s first series, the WB teen dramedy, Popular.

Popular chronicles the trials and tribulations of two warring high school cliques: the beautiful, blonde popular ones and the brunette outcasts—who also happen to all look like models. The series hardly lived up to its name, airing only two seasons. However, with its off-the-wall blend of teenage melodrama and campy, non-sequitur humor, Popular has since developed a modest cult following.

RELATED: 5 Best Couples On Glee (And 5 Of The Worst)

Whether they like it or not, the Popular teens are defined and judged by whichever clique they belong to. In this regard, Kennedy High isn’t dissimilar to Harry Potter‘s Hogwarts. There, students are sorted into one of four houses—Ravenclaw, Gryffindor, Slytherin, or Hufflepuff—based on their personalities. If Brooke, Sam, and all their pals were to show up at Hogwarts, would they view their new house as a fresh start…or just the same old pigeonholing? Here are the Popular Characters Sorted Into Their Hogwarts Houses.

10 Brooke McQueen – Ravenclaw

Brooke McQueen is living the teen dream. She’s head cheerleader, at the top of her class and at the beginning of the series, is dating the eligible Josh Ford. Yes indeed, it appears Brooke’s life is sheer perfection—which is exactly what she wants you to think.

Ravenclaws view everything through an academic lens. Thus, Brooke treats popularity like a school subject in which she’s determined to get an A+. Often, this means acting against her own interests. When she was younger, Brooke developed an eating disorder because she thought if she achieved “perfection”, her mom would return after having abandoned her. For all her Ravenclaw logic, Brooke still hasn’t deduced the best way to make herself happy.

9 Samantha “Sam” McPherson – Gryffindor

As a hard-nosed student journalist, Sam McPherson is defiantly unpopular. She’d rather die than eat lunch with the football players and cheerleaders. Gryffindors pride themselves on their ability to go against the grain. However, it is forever their paradox that they strive to stand out, but also desperately want to fit in. On the record, Sam loathes Brooke and her cronies for the choke-hold they have on the school. But off the record, Sam envies all that Brooke has and would give anything for an invitation to eat lunch with the cool kids.

Sam always has some scheme up her sleeve and it usually has to do with exposing the popular kids for the monsters she perceives them to be. But ever the Gryffindor, Sam doesn’t always think things through and her plans often blow up in her face. What she wouldn’t give for a Time-Turner…

8 Nicole Julian – Slytherin

No teen show is complete without the presence of the wicked cheerleader. Nicole Julian checks that box, thank you. She’s the Draco Malfoy of Kennedy High—a privileged blonde whose favorite pastime is ridiculing those she deems unattractive, unpopular, or poor. Like with Malfoy, the Sorting Hat would barely touch Nicole’s head before yelling out, “SLYTHERIN!” Which is just as well. Nicole doesn’t need some ratty hand-me-down hat messing up her blonde tresses.

RELATED: Riverdale Characters Sorted Into Their Hogwarts Houses

Nicole, a reader of Machiavelli and Sun Tzu, has no qualms about destroying lives to get what she wants. This sassy Slytherin even gets April Tuna thrown into juvie in order to steal her class presidency. Nicole is one Avada Kedavra away from becoming She Who Must Not Be Named.

7 Carmen Ferrara – Hufflepuff

For most students at Kennedy, cliques are a religion. But Carmen Ferrara doesn’t see people as their labels; she sees them as individuals. Carmen is accepting of everyone, as is the Hufflepuff way. Hufflepuffs also believe that hard work is all you need to succeed, and can be a little naïve to the harsher ways of the world. Carmen genuinely believes she’ll nab a spot on the cheerleading squad because she’s a gifted dancer. When she doesn’t make the cut due to lack of status, she’s especially crushed because she didn’t see it coming.

But as easy as it may be to knock a Hufflepuff down, they’re never down for the count. Their sheer optimism brings them back to life. Carmen keeps trying and ends up earning her place on the squad. Go, Team Hufflepuff!

6 Josh Ford – Hufflepuff

The Hufflepuff mascot may be the badger, but Josh Ford is more like a golden retriever—eager to please and loyal to a fault. More than anything, Josh wants to star in the school musical. Alas, he fears judgment from his football teammates and his father. Hufflepuffs are sensitive souls who crave approval. Josh displays rebelliousness rare for a Hufflepuff and carries on with the musical, but is crushed when his dad walks out.

Hufflepuffs aren’t always known for their academic prowess and Josh is hardly the brightest flood light on the football field. Still, he’s always eager to try and learn new things, making him one of the most likable jocks television has ever seen.

5 Harrison John – Gryffindor

If Nicole is the Malfoy of the Popular world, Harrison John is the Ron Weasley. Like Ron, Harrison is generally good-natured, if not dissatisfied with his lot in life. He yearns for a muscular physique and better social status and carries a lifelong torch for Brooke.

Harrison also shares Ron’s ineptitude in the romance department, which can be chocked up to a Gryffindor’s lack of long-term thinking. While in the hospital being treated for leukemia, Harrison has a revelation that he’s in love with Sam. However, when Brooke finally reciprocates romantic feelings for Harrison, a romance with her is too tempting to pass up. Thus, Harrison finds himself in the midst of a love triangle, entirely of his own Gryffindor making.

4 Mary Cherry – Slytherin

Mary Cherry is a southern belle who comes from serious money. Slytherin-level money. Despite having no dancing skills, Mary Cherry is essentially able to buy her way onto the cheerleading squad and into the popular clique. Wealth is all she knows. When Mary Cherry was broke for a hot second, she got a job in the cafeteria, only to blow all her money on makeup that same day.

RELATED: Popular Cast: Where Are They Now?

She frequently decrees, “I’ll do anything to be popular…anything.” Mary Cherry may not have Nicole’s cunning, but she display Slytherin ruthlessness all the same. Other characters frequently joke about her serial killer-like tendencies. Mary Cherry would make the most outlandish Death Eater ever, y’all.

3 Lily Esposito – Gryffindor

Like Hermione had S.P.E.W., Lily Esposito always has a cause she’s fighting for. This Gryffindor activist never backs down, frequently challenging authority figures. Lily refuses to dissect a frog in biology class, so Ms. Glass forces her to carry around a dead frog in an effort to humiliate her. But Ms. Glass doesn’t know who she’s messing with, and the punishment just fuels Lily’s fire.

Though smarter than most of her peers, Lily has the Gryffindor tendency to serve her emotions rather than logic. The end of the series finds her in a serious relationship with Josh and when it looks like he has to move away, Lily comes up with the cockamamie idea that they should get married. Their teenage nuptials have disastrous consequences that anybody could have predicted—anybody but a lovestruck Gryffindor.

2 Michael “Sugar Daddy” Bernardino – Gryffindor

A jovial football player and Josh’s best friend, Sugar Daddy can always be counted on to entertain with some rapping or by taking Mary Cherry for a spin on the dance floor. Like many of the characters, Sugar Daddy deals with body issues. Gryffindors don’t always enjoy facing their internal struggles and Sugar Daddy masks his by making himself the life of the party.

When Sugar Daddy is refused a spot on the wrestling team because of his weight, he’s given a fight or flight choice. As a Gryffindor, Sugar Daddy chooses to fight, bravely seeking out the help he needs.

1 Roberta “Bobbi” Glass – Ravenclaw

If Luna Lovegood grew up to be a curmudgeonly science teacher, she’d be Bobbi Glass. Ms. Glass is known for her oddball Ravenclaw randomness. She’ll not-so-subtly share her kinky proclivities with her students and if the mood strikes, Ms. Glass will cancel regular class in favor of putting on a play about sexually transmitted diseases.

While it may seem that Ms. Glass doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her, she has a much thinner skin than Luna. Due to her deep voice and masculine wardrobe, students address Ms. Glass as “sir”. She answers to it but later reveals that she’s hurt by the moniker. Still, nothing will stop Ms. Glass from marching to the beat of her own Ravenclaw drum.

10 Veronica Mars Characters Sorted Into Their Hogwarts Houses

Part Nancy Drew, part Dawson’s Creek noir, Veronica Mars was a breath of fresh air when it debuted on the now-defunct UPN in 2004. It ran for two seasons on the network before UPN and WB merged to create the CW, where the show had one more season.

The series followed the title character while she attended high school in Neptune, a small California town. At one time she was part of the in-crowd, but the murder of her best friend and her father’s fall from grace as the local Sherriff made her the target of harassment at school. While she moonlighted as an assistant to her private eye father, Veronica also had to survive the high school social scene.

With so many mysteries and criminal activity, fans would be quick to think Veronica Mars was full of Neptune residents that belonged in Slytherin – the Hogwarts house of the ambitious and sneaky. They wouldn’t be wrong. There are also plenty of Hufflepuffs (the loyal and hardworking), Ravenclaws (the logical and knowledge-seeking), and even a Gryffindor (the brave and the reckless).

RELATED: The 10 Best Guest Stars On Veronica Mars, Ranked

10 Wallace Fennel: Hufflepuff

The audience’s first glimpse of Wallace was a kid duct-taped to a flagpole. Veronica cut him down, and from that moment, a beautiful friendship was born.

That friendship gave the audience a hint at what Wallace’s Hogwarts house was destined to be: Hufflepuff. Wallace was always willing to do favors for Veronica, no matter how much trouble he could get in. How many permanent files did he “borrow” from the school’s administrative office for Veronica? The rest of us lost count.

Wallace also put his mother and his little brother first. He ran back into a house with a gas leak so they wouldn’t have to. Wallace also got Keith Mars to get rid of his mom’s troublesome tenant to keep his family safe.

9 Stosh Piznarski: Ravenclaw

Piz was pretty straightforward with his feelings and his actions when he joined Veronica Mars in season three. He wasn’t one of the people jumping into the mysteries or the fights. Those ideas rule him out as Slytherin or Gryffindor. His loyalty could land him in Hufflepuff, but his logical attitude leans more toward Ravenclaw – as does his encyclopedic knowledge of music.

Piz was one of the few characters introduced later in Veronica Mars who could keep up with Veronica’s wit. He wasn’t quite at her level when it came to working out mysteries, though he was pretty great at reading human behavior. Ravenclaw is the best fitting house.

8 Duncan Kane: Slytherin

Compared to his peer group in the early episodes of the series, Duncan seemed like a good guy. He wasn’t bullying his classmates, and he wasn’t rubbing his status in anyone’s face. The difference was that Duncan, as Veronica later pointed out, spent his time “standing idly by” while everyone else performed horrific acts. That inaction showed Duncan’s desire to preserve his status, just like a true Slytherin.

RELATED: Veronica Mars: The 5 Best (& 5 Worst) Couples

Duncan also was intent on covering up the events surrounding his sister’s murder – even though he didn’t know what they were. Gaps existed in his memory when he found her body, gaps made more likely as a result of his type of epilepsy and the antidepressants he took. When a hallucination of Lilly made him believe he might uncover more while off his meds, he promptly began taking them again. Duncan wanted to hide the truth (even from himself) to protect him from the fact that he might have killed his sister.

7 Lilly Kane: Hufflepuff

Though the audience never got to see her in action in the present storyline, it was clear that Lilly Kane was the family wild child. Veronica’s memories of her made her sound like a master manipulator, but that wasn’t entirely true. Lilly was good at keeping secrets and going after what she wanted. Ultimately, her motivation was always her relationship with her best friend. Lilly was a surprising Hufflepuff.

Despite Veronica not being one of the rich kids, Lilly made sure she was never left out of the biggest parties. She supported Veronica when her boyfriend and his friends teased her. Lilly even protected her from secrets that could harm her, like Duncan believing Veronica was their half-sister. She didn’t betray her brother’s trust, and she also didn’t hurt Veronica with the information. Lilly did her best to do what she thought was right for both of them.

6 Weevil Navarro: Hufflepuff

Another surprising Hufflepuff in Veronica Mars came in the form of Eli Navarro AKA Weevil. Weevil might have broken a lot of laws in his day, but he lived his life by a code. He protected those who helped him out. Weevil never went after those who couldn’t defend themselves – unless they were a snitch. Eli’s trouble-making ways came as a result of his loyalty to the PCH motorcycle gang and providing for his family. He still wanted to make his grandmother proud by graduating high school, and he even confessed to a crime he didn’t commit to keep his grandmother from out of jail.

RELATED: Veronica Mars: 10 Unanswered Questions the New Season Can Answer

Weevil also kept Lilly’s secrets so her reputation wouldn’t be ruined, and refused to get Logan in trouble on multiple occasions, even though their relationship had never been the greatest.

5 Jackie Cook: Slytherin

Before she was a Valkyrie or a member of the Men In Black, Tessa Thompson was the daughter of a Neptune baseball player. She played Jackie for season two of Veronica Mars.

RELATED: 10 Roles Tessa Thompson Kicks Butt In Other Than Valkyrie

Jackie was a new addition to Neptune High. She moved to spend more time with her father. Veronica always suspected there was something fishy in her life even though the two became friends. The truth was that Jackie’s mother was a waitress in New York who had a one night stand with a famous baseball player. Jackie also had a son her mother was raising. Though Jackie wanted so badly to be more than just a waitress, she moved back to New York to raise her son and be there for her mother. She exhibited some serious Hufflepuff tendencies even though her scheming, social climbing, and pragmatic approach to life in Neptune make her a Slytherin.

4 Cindy Mackenzie: Ravenclaw

Mac was Neptune’s resident computer genius. She never met a system she couldn’t hack into. Could she be anything other than a Ravenclaw?

Mac went through some serious trauma over the course of the show. She discovered she was switched at birth with another infant. Her first serious boyfriend turned out to be psychotic. Mac just couldn’t catch a break. Like the people she remained close with (Veronica and Wallace) in the series though, Mac didn’t let her traumas stop her from searching for truth. She kept expanding her knowledge of technology and helping Veronica with difficult cases whenever she could.

3 Logan Echolls: Gryffindor

Quick to jump to conclusions, reckless, and never met a fight he could just walk away from. That hot-tempered personality of Logan’s is a perfect fit for a Gryffindor who loves to be at the center of attention.

At first glance, Logan Echolls didn’t seem like a brave and noble guy. He constantly made fun of Veronica and used his rich kid status to get himself out of trouble. All of that attitude was a mask for his unhappiness. When push came to shove, Logan routinely tried to do what he thought was the right thing. He confessed to a prank to make sure Weevil didn’t get expelled, routinely covered for his friends, and assisted in investigations. As he and Veronica grew closer, he even saved her life a time or two.

2 Dick Casablancas: Hufflepuff

Dick Casablancas, like most of the 09ers, didn’t give the audience the best first impression. Like all the guys from the prestigious 90909 zip code, he relied on his privilege to escape any kind of trouble. He also participated in a lot of the bullying in Neptune High, which might be why it’s surprising to see him as a Hufflepuff.

Dick was the kind of guy who goes along with the crowd. If his friends were doing something stupid, he was right there in the thick of it. He only acted so horrible because so many of his friends did – not to mention his father. Most of his behavior was learned by the examples set for him. He did have one huge spot of loyalty. For Logan Echolls, Dick would do anything. He’s the one person that Dick could always count on, and who could always count on him. As Logan made a turn for the better, so did he. 

1 Veronica Mars: Ravenclaw

Veronica exhibited a lot of Slytherin tendencies in the series. She could lie, scheme, and con with the best of them. Veronica also didn’t love being knocked to the bottom of the Neptune socioeconomic spectrum in the first season. Despite that, her work as a detective definitely sorts her into Ravenclaw.

Veronica absorbed information like a sponge and could logic out solutions like nobody else. History test the next morning, but need to investigate some leads in a murder investigation? Veronica could do it, no problem. Even when sleeping through her English class after a late-night of taking photos for a case, Veronica could still answer all the questions thrown at her. As someone who always had to know the truth, no matter how much digging it took to get to it, Veronica was definitely a Ravenclaw.

It’s true that sometimes the perception of the sorting hat can change over time. Perhaps some of these characters shouldn’t have been sorted into these particular Hogwarts houses, and we’ll find out in season four of Veronica Mars on Hulu.

10 James Bond Villains, Ranked By How Evil Their Plans Were

The James Bond movies all follow a pretty rigid formula. 007 wraps up a mission in a breathtaking opening action sequence, then enjoys some time off before being presented with another high-stakes mission by M. This will usually revolve around a maniacal criminal overlord who is bent on taking over the world. What’s different each time is exactly how the villain plans to go about taking over the world (or turning the world to chaos or destroying MI6 or whatever other crazy goal they’re striving for).

RELATED: James Bond: 10 Things From The Films That Aged Poorly

10 Auric Goldfinger

In the original Goldfinger novel, the titular villain plotted to steal the gold in Fort Knox, but since that plan was wildly impractical (it would take weeks to haul all that gold out there), it was changed for the film adaptation. Instead, in the movie, he plans to infect all the gold in Fort Knox with radiation by setting off a nuclear bomb in there. With all the gold in Fort Knox contaminated, the value of Goldfinger’s supply of gold would go up. It’s a typical “rich guy wants to be richer” scheme. The goal here isn’t particularly evil, but involving the Chinese government and the mafia certainly made this plan a shady one.

9 Dr. Kananga

In its attempts to get in on the blaxploitation craze of the 1970s, Live and Let Die has been criticized for perpetuating a number of African-American stereotypes. For example, the Bond movies’ first black villain, Dr. Kananga, was a drug dealer who plotted to get everybody in America addicted to heroin. The character was played by Yaphet Kotto, who would later call the script a “sea of stereotype crap.” His plan was to distribute two tons of heroin for free through his chain of restaurants in a try-before-you-buy scheme. Restaurant patrons would try the heroin, enjoy the heroin, get hooked on the heroin, and come back to him to buy more heroin.

8 Raoul Silva

Of all the villains’ plans in the Bond franchise, Raoul Silva’s from Skyfall has been most commonly criticized, because it’s overly convoluted and it relies a lot on coincidences. He leaked a list of MI6’s undercover operatives to get James Bond on his tail, then allowed himself to get caught just so he could then escape, Bond would chase him to the courthouse, and he could eventually kill M for an earlier betrayal.

RELATED: Skyfall Originally Featured a Much Different Story & Ending

The plan seems to have been hatched by screenwriters who wanted a steady supply of action set pieces than a Bond villain. Still, it began with undercover agents getting exposed and killed and it all ended with the murder of M, which devastated fans, so it’s pretty darn evil.

7 Colonel Tan-Sun Moon

Colonel Tan-Sun Moon’s plan in Die Another Day was to fire a laser called Icarus from space right at the border between the Koreas. This was supposed to push North Korean forces to cross the border into South Korea and escalate the conflict between the two nations. Eventually, the war would go on long enough that they would have to learn to get along. It wasn’t a perfect plan, but it was a diabolical one. When Bond thought he’d killed Moon, he was reincarnated as a British man named Gustav Graves (the Pierce Brosnan movies were pretty absurd) to carry out the rest of his plan.

6 General Medrano

Quantum of Solace is a mostly maligned movie, due to its generic, somewhat rehashed plot and flat action sequences, but its villain does have a pretty evil plan. General Medrano essentially wanted to build a dam around Bolivia’s entire supply of drinking water so that he could hold it for ransom. While it’s not as dramatic as sending nuclear warheads to Russia or wiping out the human race, it is a violation of human rights to monopolize water and take away people’s access to it (even though 780 million people across the world similarly don’t have access to clean drinking water).

5 Elliot Carver

Media mogul Elliot Carver, the villain from Tomorrow Never Dies played by Jonathan Pryce, has a pretty disturbing plan, considering what he stood to gain from it. Bond stumbled onto his plan when he figured out that he was orchestrating worldwide politics in an attempt to start World War III. Why? So that his news outlets could have exclusive coverage of the conflict. Carver was going to let millions – possibly billions – of people die in a global war, just so that he could expand his media empire and become even richer than he already was (it’s not like he needed the money).

4 General Orlov

General Orlov, the villain from Octopussy, intended to win the Cold War for the Soviet Union by exploding a nuclear warhead in a U.S. Army base in West Germany. Orlov believed that this little “accident” would convince Western European forces to completely denuclearize, giving the Soviets a window to invade. He teamed up with an exiled Afghan prince to pull off this plot, but they didn’t get very far with it once Commander James Bond was on the scene. Still, it was a pretty evil plan that would’ve had some disastrous ramifications if it had been successful (which was, admittedly, rather unlikely).

3 Max Zorin

Having been genetically engineered by the Nazis and hired by the KGB, Max Zorin from A View to a Kill was the ideal candidate for Britain’s favorite spy to take on. His plan was to detonate a bomb on the cross-section between California’s biggest fault lines.

RELATED: 007: The 5 Best Films According To Rotten Tomatoes (& The 5 Worst)

This would’ve caused a flood in Silicon Valley, wiping out the biggest tech companies in America, leaving Zorin the only manufacturer of microchips. If people wanted microchips, they’d have to buy them from him. That’s the whole reason he wanted to send a Biblical-level flood to an area with a population of around four million people.

2 Karl Stromberg

From WarGames to Red Dawn, a lot of popular culture in the 1980s revolved around the outbreak of World War III, thanks to tensions with the Soviet Union. The Bond series caught on earlier than that. 1977’s The Spy Who Loved Me saw industrialist Karl Stromberg steal a nuclear sub from the UK and a nuclear sub from the Soviet Union to fire nukes at each other. The UK would get mad at the Soviets and the Soviets would get mad at the UK, leading to a nuclear war that would decimate the surface world. Then, Stromberg would provide the survivors with shelter at a price in his newly constructed underwater city.

1 Hugo Drax

The James Bond movies have always adapted to keep up with the film industry’s contemporary landscape (so it probably won’t be long until we have the Bond Cinematic Universe), so when Star Wars became the highest grossing movie of all time, 007 went to space. But he wouldn’t just go to space without a good reason. In Moonraker, Bond discovers that Hugo Drax plans to wipe out all of humankind and replace them with a genetically superior race. It’s fair to say that Drax is the most evil Bond villain of all, since his plan was literally to kill everyone.

25 Disney And DreamWorks Voice Actors That Look (Almost) Exactly Like Their Characters

Movies are no doubt a profitable form of entertainment, but animated films often hold a special place in people’s hearts. Most of the time, animated movies cater to younger and family-friendly audiences, much like Disney, Pixar, and DreamWorks have done with their movies.

Each of these companies have had some incredibly successful films over the years, but Disney is, of course, the leader when it comes to beloved animated movies. These movies obviously have talented writers and animators working on the projects, but the movie studios also have to hire actors to give the animated characters a voice.

With the money that Disney is able to throw around, they have been able to hire some high profile celebrities to provide voices for their characters over the years. DreamWorks Studios is relatively new compared to Disney, but they have also been able to hire some famous actors and actress to bring characters to life.

Sometimes the voice actors behind characters look nothing like you might imagine, but there are plenty of examples of voice actors who look just like the characters they voice. Here are 25 Disney And DreamWorks Voice Actors That Look (Almost) Exactly Like Their Characters.

25 Kathryn Beaumont: Alice

Kathryn Beaumont is an actress who is most known for her roles in the 1951 film Alice in Wonderland and the 1953 Peter Pan. Not only did Beaumont voice Alice and Wendy in their respective films, but she was also the real-life reference that was used to create the animated films.

Because of this, the animators made Alice look just like Beaumont and did the same thing with Wendy a few years later. Obviously, Alice and Wendy couldn’t look identical, but both characters closely resemble their real-life voice actress.

24 Rowan Atkinson: Zazu

When The Lion King hit theaters in 1994, the film had a star-studded cast. The Oscar-winning film had several talented voice actors such as Matthew Broderick, Moira Kelly, Jeremy Irons, and of course James Earl Jones. The film also featured Rowan Atkinson as the red-billed hornbill Zazu.

One wouldn’t think that a bird could look almost identical to a human, but Zazu looks just like Rowan Atkinson. It’s mainly Zazu’s bushy eyebrows that resemble Atkinson, but some of his facial features also closely resemble Atkinson’s.

23 Jennifer Saunders: Fairy Godmother

Over the years, DreamWorks has gotten several big named celebrities to voice characters in their Shrek films. Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, Julie Andrews, and Antonio Banderas are some of the most famous actors attached to the series, but Jennifer Saunders also had a role in Shrek 2.

Saunders is most known for her role of Edina in Absolutely Fabulous, but she also played the Fairy Godmother in Shrek 2. Saunders’ hair looks a bit different than the Fairy Godmother’s, but the rest of her facial features are pretty much identical to Saunders.

22 Eleanor Audley: Lady Tremaine And Maleficent

Eleanor Audley has an acting career dating all the way back to the 1940s, but she is most known for her Disney roles. In Sleeping Beauty she played Maleficent and in Cinderella she played Lady Tremaine. Both characters were villains in the films and both characters looked very similar to their voice actor.

Much like the case with Kathryn Beaumont, Audley was a live-action model for the characters, which meant the animators made Maleficent and Lady Tremaine look just like her. Maleficent’s facial features are a bit more exaggerated to set her apart from Lady Tremaine, but both look like Audley.

21 Wayne Knight: Al McWhiggin

Toy Story was a big achievement for Pixar when it was released in 1995, so it wasn’t much of a surprise when Toy Story 2 was released in 1999. Much like the first film, the sequel had a human villain, this time in the form of a toy collector who steals Woody.

The character’s name was Al McWhiggin, who looks strikingly similar to his voice actor Wayne Knight. Most people will also remember Knight from his role of Nedry in the first Jurassic Park, but he played an equally vile role in Toy Story 2.

20 Ed Asner: Carl Fredericksen

One of the most tear-jerking scenes in Disney’s history is the opening montage of Up with Carl and Ellie. Actor Edward Asner was the voice behind Carl Fredricksen, but the character also seemed to be designed after him.

On any regular day, Asner looks just like Fredericksen, but Asner also occasionally wears glasses like the ones featured above that look like Carl’s. Up ended up winning two Academy Awards including Best Animated Feature Film of the Year and it’s hard to imagine what the film would have been like without Asner.

19 Zachary Levi: Flynn Rider

Zachary Levi was plunged into the spotlight when he starred on Chuck from 2007 to 2012, but his career has only gotten bigger since then. Levi has played roles in both the Marvel Cinematic universe and the DC Extended Universe by playing Fandral in Thor: The Dark World and Shazam in Shazam!.

Levi also played a character in Tangled named Flynn Rider, who actually looks a lot like Levi himself. Flynn Rider was based on the prince from the Brothers Grimm fairy tale and ends up being a love interest to Rapunzel.

18 Irene Bedard: Pocahontas

Irene Bedard has played many Native American characters in her career, but her most famous role is Pocahontas in the 1995 movie of the same name. Bedard has been a part of many projects since then, but she returned to the role of Pocahontas several times, most notably in 1998 for Pocahontas 2: Journey to a New World and in 2018 for Ralph Breaks the Internet.

Since Bedard is a Native American herself, it only made sense to base Pocahontas off of what Bedard looked like, and that seems to be exactly what Disney did.

17 Danny DeVito: Philoctetes

Danny DeVito is one actor on this list who has had a very diverse acting career. He starred as the Penguin in the 1992 film Batman Returns, played Mr. Wormwood in Matilda, and of course plays Frank Reynolds on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. DeVito also has a Disney title under his belt since he voiced Philoctetes in the 1997 film Hercules.

Philoctetes, or Phil, is a half-human half-goat, who actually bears some resemblance to DeVito. Some may take offense to being compared to Phil from Hercules, but over the years DeVito’s roles have seemed to embrace his physical characteristics, especially his height.

16 Jane Lynch: Sergeant Calhoun

Jane Lynch may be mostly known for Glee, but she has also dipped her toes into Disney territory. In 2012, Jane Lynch voiced the character Sergeant Calhoun, who was a battle-hardened warrior from the fictional game Hero’s Duty. Despite her strict and authoritative behavior, she falls in love and eventually marries Fix-It Felix Jr.

Sergeant Calhoun returned for the 2018 film Ralph Breaks the Internet, but her appearance remained mostly the same. Lynch has mostly done comedic roles in her career, but this action character was made to look just like her.

15 Anika Noni Rose: Princess Tiana

One of the more recent Disney princesses is Princess Tiana from The Princess and the Frog. In the film, Tiana is an aspiring chef who wants to start her own restaurant, but also has to turn herself back into a human after she transforms into a frog.

Anika Noni Rose, who is known for her role as Lorrell Robinson in Dreamgirls, provided the voice of Tiana in 2009, but also returned to the character in 2018 for Ralph Breaks the Internet. The character looks a lot like Anika Noni Rose, so it’s likely that Disney just based the character around what the actress looked like.

14 Jack McBrayer: Fix-It Felix Jr.

Jack McBrayer is one of the people on this list that has a very distinct voice. McBrayer had a starring role on 30 Rock, but he also voiced the character Fix-It Felix Jr. in Wreck-It Ralph.

If just hearing Felix’s voice wasn’t enough to reveal Jack McBrayer as the voice actor, then the look of Felix certainly should have because Felix looks just like Jack McBrayer. The character has the same hairstyle as the voice actor, but his eyebrows, eyes, and other facial features also closely resemble McBrayer.

13 Phyllis Smith: Sadness

One of Phyllis Smith’s earliest roles was that of Phyllis Vance on the hit sitcom The Office. Smith is most known for that role, but she also voiced one of the emotions in Inside Out. Smith landed the role of Sadness in the Disney Pixar film in 2015.

Sadness is completely blue in appearance, but obviously, Smith isn’t blue in real life! Instead, the similarities once again come in the facial features for the character. Smith may not look exactly like Sadness, but she surely resembles her character more than any of the other voice actors in Inside Out do.

12 Christopher Plummer: Charles Muntz

Charles F. Muntz was a famous explorer that Carl Fredricksen and his wife Ellie admired in the movie Up. The man was a role model as they were growing up, but Carl found the unfortunate truth about the explorer near the middle to end of the film.

Muntz traveled to South America in search of a living specimen of a tropical bird, but his goals ended up being a lot more sinister than people has previously thought. Muntz was voiced by Christopher Plummer, who was the clear inspiration behind the look of Up’s antagonist.

11 Bobby Driscoll: Peter Pan

One of Disney’s many successful movies was the 1953 Peter Pan. People have tried to duplicate the success of the character Peter Pan over the years, including the movie Peter Pan in 2003 and Pan in 2015, but nothing has come close to the beloved Disney Classic.

Actor Bobby Driscoll provided the voice of Peter Pan, but the character also looks a lot like the voice actor. The reason behind this is because Driscoll was used as a reference model for the character, meaning the animators purposefully made Peter Pan look like Bobby Driscoll.

10 Jay Baruchel: Hiccup

The How to Train Your Dragon series started in 2010 with Jay Baruchel voicing the role of a young Viking named Hiccup. The final film in the series, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, was released this year. The animation certainly improved in the two sequels, but Hiccup also grew up since the movies span several years.

While many people joke that the three stages of Hiccup look like the three stages of Jim from The Office, many people would also agree that the character looks a lot like the voice actor Jay Baruchel.

9 Anthony Gonzalez: Miguel

Anthony Gonzalez didn’t have many acting credits before he voiced Miguel in Coco. Gonzalez appeared on the TV shows Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, The Bridge, and in the short films Imagination of Young and Icebox. Needless to say, his role as the voice of a Disney character was considered his break out role.

Coco heavily focused on Mexican culture and was highly praised by fans and critics. Coco had many characters like Héctor, Ernesto de la Cruz , and Mamá Imelda, but the animators no doubt made Miguel look like Gonzalez.

8 Auli’i Cravalho: Moana

Moana was yet another Academy Award-winning movie whose main character looked like its voice actor. Some people may say that Dwayne Johnson looks like the Demigod Maui, but more people would likely agree that Moana looks like Auli’i Cravalho.

Cravalho’s very first acting gig was the voice of a Disney princess, so the actress was thrown into the starlight since the beginning of her acting career. Cravalho is an 18-year-old Hawaiian Native, so it only makes sense that Disney would make her character look similar to her.

7 Kristen Bell: Anna

While Idina Menzel’s Elsa would be considered the main character in 2013’s Frozen, Kristen Bell’s character still played a big role in the film. Bell played the character Anna, who was the sister of Elsa. Anna was a special character because she was one Disney character who didn’t immediately fall in love with her love interest, in this case, Hans.

Bell honestly looks a lot like Anna, but she also looks similar to Elsa as well. Bell looks more like Elsa than Menzel does, but then again, maybe it is just her blonde hair.

6 Ming-Na Wen: Mulan

Mulan was one of the later movies to come out in the 90s, 1998 to be exact. The movie was about a young woman who enlisted in the army as a man so that her father didn’t have to. Mulan had some big named actors as voice actors including George Takei, Eddie Murphy, and Pat Morita.

Ming-Na Wen had been in several projects prior to 1998, but today she is most known for voicing the Disney princess and her role on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Melinda May. Yifei Liu will be playing Mulan in Disney’s 2020 live-action remake of Mulan, but Ming-Na Wen also resembled the famous character.

5 John Goodman: Pacha

From starring in movies like 10 Cloverfield Lane, Barton Fink, and Argo, John Goodman has become a well-known actor in Hollywood. Goodman has also collaborated with Disney on a few occasions including in 2000 for The Emperor’s New Groove and again in 2001 for Monsters, Inc.

While it would be rude to compare John Goodman to Sully’s monstrous appearance, he does strike a resemblance to his character in The Emperor’s New Groove. Pacha was a llama herder who had a pivotal role in the first movie, and also returned for Kronk’s New Groove and The Emperor’s New School.

4 Ilene Woods: Cinderella

As legendary as the movie Cinderella has become, it is a bit of a surprise that Ilene Woods didn’t become a more famous actress. Woods only acted in On Stage Everybody and Cinderella, but she is most known for singing the now-famous songs from Cinderella.

While Woods didn’t show her face a lot on the big screen, some can still draw comparisons between her and her Disney character. The resemblance might not be as striking as other actors on this list, but a young Woods no doubt looked like Cinderella.

3 Ed Wynn: The Mad Hatter

Isaiah Edwin Leopold, a.k.a. Ed Wynn, was a famous actor and comedian who worked from 1903 and 1966. Wynn hosted a radio show in the 1930s, before moving on to movies and TV shows. Wynn is remembered fondly for several of his projects, but his two most famous roles came from Disney movies.

In 1964, Wynn played Uncle Albert in Mary Poppins, but before that, he voiced the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland. Given the appearance of the Mad Hatter compared to the image of Wynn above, it becomes apparent that the character was clearly inspired by Wynn himself.

2 Adriana Caselotti: Snow White

Adriana Caselotti was an American actress who is most known today as providing the voice of Snow White in the 1937 film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Caselotti began her acting career two years earlier in the 1935 film Naughty Marietta. More than 80 years after her voice was heard in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, her songs are still instantly recognizable.

That being said, Caselotti herself also looks quite a bit like Snow White. Her acting career didn’t flourish like others on this list, but at least her voice and image will live on forever as a Disney legend.

1 Emperor Of China: Pat Morita

When people think of Pat Morita, most will think of his role in The Karate Kid series as Mr. Miyagi. The film trilogy lasted for five years from 1984 to 1989, but his second most memorable role came in 1998. As most Disney fans know, Morita voiced The Emperor of China in Mulan.

Many people recognized Morita’s voice in the ‘90s, but the Emperor himself also looked like the actor. The match isn’t perfect and Morita never grew out his beard as long as the Emperor, but the similarities are still there.

Are there any other voice actors that look like their characters? Sound off in the comments!

Mark Hamill Surprises Fans With Autographed Photos, Shares Their Reactions

Mark Hamill couldn’t attend the recent Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, so he sent ahead some signed photos that were randomly given to fans at the event. Star Wars Celebration is one of the largest gatherings for Star Wars fans in the world, with this year’s event taking place at McCormick Place in Chicago. Thousands of fans attended the event to get exclusive looks at upcoming Star Wars movies and TV shows, as well as have access to exclusive merchandise not available anywhere else.

This year’s event saw some significant reveals, including the first trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Fans reacted to the trailer with loud applause, hugs and even crying, but that was only the first of many surprises in store for them throughout the long weekend. They also got to see the first footage from Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian television series, which will premiere on Disney+. Many Star Wars celebrities were in attendance signing autographs and taking photos with fans, including the prequel movies’ Hayden Christensen, everyone’s favorite Wookie Peter Mayhew, Warwick Davis (who portrayed Wicket the Ewok in the original trilogy, among other characters throughout the franchise) and voice actors from the Star Wars animated series.

Hamill is often a staple at these events, but the stars didn’t align that would allow him to attend this year. Instead, he was there in spirit through a Lucasfilm publicist on the ground in Chicago who was handing out autographed photos to fans. Hamill tweeted some of those fans’ reactions.

Hamill has always maintained a good relationship with Star Wars fans, especially on social media. He also occasionally trolls them, by hinting at plot points that may or may not be true. Hamill appeared most recently in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, with his character fighting off Kylo Ren and the First Order in a projected form before disappearing to, presumably, become one with the Force. However, his character, Luke Skywalker might not be gone for good, with the actor hinting that he might have a cameo in the upcoming movie, although it’s unclear if he will appear as Force ghost, if the scene is a flashback or if he’s joking again.

The next Star Wars Celebration will be in Anaheim in 2020, but the focus of that event will change from this year’s Celebration. The Rise of Skywalker wraps up the Skywalker saga, which includes nine movies, so 2020 attendees should expect less emphasis on films and more focus on TV shows and video games.

The Most Compatible Game Of Thrones Characters, Based On Their MBTI®

HBO’s wildly successful and beloved fantasy drama series Game of Thrones may be best known for its incorporation of dragons, direwolves, and epic battle scenes, as well as the high caliber acting turned in from its cast of main and supporting characters. But another clear highlight of the series has always been its depiction of passionate relationships between people who love each other, despite the odds they face and the world crumbling around them.

RELATED: Game Of Thrones: 15 Worst Relationships (And 10 Of The Best)

In recent years, Myers-Briggs® Personality Types have become all the rage on the internet and in fandoms in particular. Finding characters that you can relate to and share your personality type with is often a vindicating feeling for people, as it helps them make sense of why they root for certain characters – especially in such a highly volatile, conflict-driven series like Game of Thrones.

But what some people may not know is that, once a personality type is assigned, the story doesn’t stop there. Certain personality types are romantically compatible with other types, and only those other types. So after typing all your favorite Thrones characters, we checked their romantic compatibility with other characters – and the results may shock you.

10 Shae (ESFJ) and Jaime Lannister (ESTP)

The character of Shae, as portrayed by Sibel Kekilli, is perhaps one of the most misunderstood and most tragically fated in the entire series. After falling in love with Tyrion Lannister, Shae – an ESFJ personality, known as The Provider or The Consul – would wind up feeling betrayed by Tyrion, and in turn betray him, breaking his heart and leading to her own death.

As it turns out, Shae’s story could have possibly had a much different ending, if only she’d chosen a different Lannister brother. Jaime Lannister, whose MBTI type is ESTP – The Entrepreneur – is perfectly romantically compatible with Shae’s type. As individuals who are both looked down upon because of their good looks, with tragic histories and plenty of blemishes on their record, it’s not unlikely that these two could have hit it off well, in another lifetime.

9 Ygritte (ESFJ) and Jon Snow (ISFP)

Sorry, Jon and Dany fans: there’s only one woman that Jon Snow is perfectly romantically suited for, and it’s none other than his true love, Ygritte. Jon Snow is, in effect, the very prototype of an ISFP: kind, adventure seeking, deceptively quiet, and passionate. As an ESFJ, Ygritte is, in many ways, everything that Jon is not: loud, hyper social, well liked in most places.

From the very beginning, Jon and Ygritte work so well because they’re so different. What starts as a love hate relationship soon blossoms into a true love story, even if Ygritte thinks that Jon Snow knows nothing. While they could never fully make it work due to their loyalties being on opposing sides of the Wildlings vs. Wall divide, the forbidden nature of their tragically fated romance just makes their fundamental compatibility all the more poignant.

8 Ned Stark (ISTJ) and Catelyn Stark (ISFJ)

Speaking of couples that were tragically fated and definitely deserved a lot better, perhaps one of the most welcome surprises is that Ned Stark and Catelyn Stark are perfectly compatible with one another. As an ISTJ, Ned is about as old fashioned and honor bound as they go. He is strict and driven and true, ruled by the commitment to the moral good and the logically sound.

As an ISFJ, Catelyn is a true protector, driven by her emotions and her need to defend what belongs to her and her family alone. The difference in Ned’s and Cat’s approaches to the world occasionally leads them to conflict, in the few key scenes they share together. But it also makes them a powerful team, wielding both head and heart, and always acting in the best interest of those they love.

7 Petyr Baelish (ISTP) and Sansa Stark (ISFP)

One of the more controversial elements of Game of Thrones, despite being even more explicit in the A Song of Ice and Fire books, is the suggestion of a romantic connection between Littlefinger, Lord Petyr Baelish, and the impressionable young Sansa Stark. So it may come as a real shock, then, to learn that these two are entirely romantically compatible, if the MBTI is to be believed.

Petyr is a true ISTP, a master of mystery and deception whose interests and intentions are very seldom publicly known. As an ISFP, Sansa enjoys a different world of illusions all her own, relishing in sensory and surprisingly social pleasures. These two may seem like they couldn’t be more different from one another, but sharing so many key MBTI traits make them perfectly suited for each other – no matter how appearances might seem.

6 Cersei Lannister (ENTJ) and Tyrion Lannister (ENTP)

Arguably one of the most infamous aspects of Game of Thrones is the incestuous – dare we even say twincestuous – relationship between spoiled twin siblings Cersei and Jaime Lannister. As disgusting albeit significant as their dynamic may be, Jaime and Cersei’s relationship is, as it turns out, not one that is described as romantically compatible, according to MBTI types.

RELATED: Game Of Thrones Theory: The Final Battle Is Against Cersei, Not The Night King

Even more hilariously, and uncomfortably, Cersei is indeed romantically compatible with a Lannister. It just so happens to be the younger brother whose very being she despises. The cold, commandeering, decisive ENTJ in Cersei is entirely compatible with Tyrion’s troublemaking, intellectually driven ENTP. The duo certainly engage in quite dramatic back and forths, so the potential for that sort of interpretation is certainly there – whether George RR Martin intended or not.

5 Brienne (ISFJ) and Davos Seaworth (ISFP)

If there are two people in all of Game of Thrones who deserve happy endings filled with love and support after all they have been through and all they have lost, Brienne of Tarth and Ser Davos Seaworth may just be those two people – or, at the very least, contenders for such a distinction. Having loved and lost and been rebuffed by multiple people, the sensitive but fiercely protective ISFJ in Brienne of Tarth deserves someone strong and supportive and loving.

And after enduring the loss of his own son, as well as girl he adored more than anything in Shireen Baratheon, Davos’s introspective, adventurous, hard working ISFP self could certainly benefit from the romantic and emotional support from someone as sturdy as Brienne of Tarth. An off screen wife has been mentioned in Davos’s case, which could preclude this from ever happening. But these two are romantically perfect for each other, at least as far as the MBTI is concerned.

4 Tyrion Lannister (ENTP) and Daenerys Targaryen (ENFJ)

Since joining sides with Daenerys Targaryen after his unceremonious escape and expulsion from King’s Landing, Tyrion Lannister has been fiercely loyal to the queen also known as khaleesi. Peter Dinklage has even discussed the possibility of Tyrion already being in love with Daenerys, and therefore envious of her otherwise directed romantic affections. If the MBTI could have its say, it seems like these two might just be a match made in heaven.

As an ENTP, Tyrion is driven to debate, to question, to wonder and learn and understand. As an ENTJ, Daenerys is a driven leader who likes to think she has all the answers. These two have confided in one another countless times over the years, often as a result of good natured bantering. A romantic upgrade really isn’t that far out of the realm of reason for them.

3 Daenerys Targaryen (ENFJ) and Melisandre (ENFJ)

Melisandre may not be the most trustworthy person in all of the Seven Kingdoms. She’s certainly done plenty of outright dastardly things in her day. But then again, so has Daenerys Targaryen, from a certain point of view. So while it may be initially shocking to learn that both of these fearsome women are typed as ENTJs, it does make some sense upon further reflection.

And it also certainly makes sense that the self-inflated ego of an ENTJ would be drawn to a like-minded partner, preferring a fellow ENTJ over any other potential romantic partner. Almost nothing good could come of this potential partnership, whether romantic or otherwise. But the MBTI doesn’t lie.

2 Gendry Waters (ISTP) and Sansa Stark (ISFP)

From very early on in the series, fans have been excited about the potential of a romance of the fierce little warrior in training Arya Stark and Robert Baratheon’s bastard son, Gendry Waters. But, as it turns out, Arya isn’t the Stark sister that Gendry is romantically compatible with, according to their MBTI types.

As an ISTP, Gendry is a true master of his trade of smithing, as well as a complete enigma. And also as an ISTP, he is drawn romantically toward an ISFP – none other than Sansa Stark, for example. With their totally clashing worlds of roughhousing and genteel femininity, Gendry and Sansa represent yet another incidence of the MBTI favoring opposites attracting. It may not ever work out, realistically, in the series, but it sure is interesting to think about.

1 Varys (INTP) and Tyrion Lannister (ENTP)

Every scene that the bickering duo of Varys and Tyrion Lannister share is all but guaranteed to lead to some hilarious one-liners and witticisms. As two of the smartest and most cunning players in Game of Thrones, Varys and Tyrion have both endured and seen far more than most of the characters in the series have. And, hilariously and fittingly enough, it isn’t really much of a surprise to learn that they would be perfectly suited as a couple.

As an INTP, Varys is a thinker and questioner. As an ENTP, Tyrion is a visionary and debater. With the only trait separating them being their level of introversion and extroversion, these two are truly two sides of the same coin. It’s all but impossible for them to become a couple – for many reasons – but they certainly make quite the fearsome, hilarious duo all the same.ex

10 Times The MCU Retconned Their Characters

Avengers: Endgame is set for release and promises to close this long chapter of the MCU and herald in a new era. The unprecedented 22-film series the MCU has pulled off has been truly remarkable. These characters have been with us for the last decade, allowing us to really get to know them as heroes and it will be very hard to see some of them go.

The level of continuity the MCU has managed is truly impressive. However, there have obviously been a few times they needed to backtrack and do a little rewriting of history. Sometimes characters have certain developments that end up interfering with the overall storytelling, so changes need to be made. There are a few of the times the MCU retconned their characters.

10 Thor Stuck On Asgard

Thor’s character arc in the first Thor movie was changing from an arrogant warrior to a self-sacrificing protector. Part of his sacrifice was destroying the Rainbow Bridge to prevent Loki’s destruction of Jotunheim. This meant he could not return to Earth to see his new love, Jane Foster.

However, the sacrifice felt quite shallow when Thor showed up on Earth in The Avengers. A quick throwaway line explained that Dark Magic was used to transport him. It might be a lame excuse, but the Dark Magic was used again in Avengers: Infinity War when Heimdall sent Hulk to Earth.

9 Hawkeye’s Retirement

It could be argued that Hawkeye’s secret family revealed in Avengers: Age of Ultron was a character retcon. That development seemed to come out of nowhere and felt like an addition made to give this character a little more personality. This helped add to the feeling that Hawkeye was doomed, only for him to survive and retire to his family life.

That sweet sentiment didn’t last long as Hawkeye jumped at the chance to get back in the action in Captain America: Civil War. Apparently he was bored with retirement and that was enough reason to go back to his extremely dangerous line of work.

8 Steve Searches For Bucky

Steve Rogers relationship with Bucky Barnes has been so central to the Captain America films and the character of Cap throughout the MCU. After losing his friend in Captain America: The First Avenger, Steve and Bucky met up again in The Winter Soldier, albeit in a contentious way. By the end of that film, Hydra was taken down, S.H.I.E.L.D. was disbanded and Bucky was on the run with Steve hot on his trail.

By his next appearance, Steve seemed to have abandoned that mission to find his friend and was instead hanging out with his super friends. Even by Civil War, Steve seemed to have forgotten about Bucky until he resurfaced.

7 Rhodey’s Injury

As fantastically entertaining as Captain America: Civil War was, there was some criticism of the lack of stakes. Given the loss involved in the comic book story, fans were expecting some serious casualties. While none of the heroes died, Rhodey did suffer a pretty serious injury.

Rhodey’s paralysation was the kind of injury not normally seen in superhero films and one that could affect him for years going forward. Instead, by his appearance in Infinity War, Rhodey was back on his feet like nothing had happened. While it makes sense Stark would have the tech to help him walk, it felt like those consequences were wiped away.

6 Iron Man Destroys His Armor

Tony Stark’s growing obsession with building new armor has been a defining part of the character for years. It is also something that has led up to his showdown with Thanos as he has been preparing for the “endgame” all this time.

RELATED: Tony Stark Has Failed His First Iron Man Mission

We see the extent of Stark’s obsession in Iron Man 3 with his army of Iron Men, but at the end of the movie, he decides to step away from that life and destroys all the armor. However, he must have immediately started building again, as he was back in the suit in Age of Ultron and has donned it several time since then.

5 Thor’s Missing Eye

Thor certainly went through a lot in Thor: Ragnarok, like losing his father, his hammer and his home all in one movie. With all that devastation, the fact that he also lost one of his eyes seems inconsequential, but like Rhodey’s injury in Civil War, it was a serious wound that could define the character in the future.

His new look was short-lived as Rocket quickly found him a replacement eye in Infinity War. While it makes sense that he could replace it, it happens so quickly it makes the injury seem pointless. Maybe, Chris Hemsworth just didn’t want to wear an eye-patch anymore?

4 Peter In Iron Man 2

Though it was a dream many fans thought would never become a reality, Spider-Man joined the MCU in Captain America: Civil War. The super popular Marvel hero fit extremely well into the cinematic universe, feeling like he had been there the entire time. But after some clever retconning, it turns out he has been involved from the early days.

Though it seemed to start as just a fun fan theory, Tom Holland confirmed that the young boy saved by Iron Man in Iron Man 2 was actually young Peter Parker. The change works really well and actually adds a lot to the sweet relationship between Peter and Tony in the later films.

3 Gamora: Last Of Her Kind

When Gamora is introduced in Guardians of the Galaxy, she is identified as being the last of her race. This detail adds to her tragic character and her sense of being a lone wolf. However, this becomes a problem when we are given Gamora’s backstory in Infinity War.

We see Gamora first met Thanos when the Mad Titan came to her homeworld to try out his theory of killing off half the planet’s population. Thanos claims the planet prospered because of his genocide meaning Gamora isn’t quite on her own.

2 Thor’s Personality

Thor: Ragnarok was a much-needed boost of energy in the Thor franchise. The character had not quite reached his full potential in the MCU and never reached the same popularity as his peers like Cap and Iron Man. Thanks to the humor Taika Waititi brought to the third film, Thor reached a new level of popularity.

While the change was a welcome one, it was a completely different Thor than we’ve seen before. Gone was his royal seriousness and Shakespearean inspired speech, and it was replaced with joking and an Australian accent. The change is never addressed and, to be honest, we don’t mind it at all.

1 Tony Stark Recruits Avengers

It stands to reason that some of the decisions made at the beginning of the MCU would have to be undone. While it was surprisingly smooth, one obvious instance they needed to backtrack was Tony Stark’s role in recruiting the Avengers.

Though largely forgotten, The Incredible Hulk was the second entry in the MCU. Its final scene had Stark meeting with General Ross to discuss putting a team together. We would later find out Stark had little interest in being involved with the team. Therefore, the Marvel One-Shot titled The Consultant was used to explain Stark was meant to be a deterrent for Ross to get involved.

Girls Characters Sorted Into Their Hogwarts Houses

The struggle is real. HBO’s Girls centers around the lives of millennial Hannah Horvath and her friends as they navigate the world of post-college adulthood. Girls creator Lena Dunham completely captured the millennial generation, warts and all. Hannah grew up being told she could be anything she wants, without learning the independence to get herself there. She and her pals walk that fine line between freedom and aimlessness, often leaning towards the latter.

In stark contrast, the youth of Harry Potter have much of their path carved out for them by the age of eleven. As soon as they arrive at Hogwarts, they are sorted into one of four houses—Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, or Ravenclaw—based on their personalities and aptitudes.

If Hannah and her fellow millennials were to Uber to Hogwarts, which houses would they be sorted into? Here are the Girls Characters Sorted Into Their Hogwarts Houses.

10 Hannah Horvath – Gryffindor

Hannah flits from whim to whim like a hummingbird in a flower garden. Just when people expect her to zig, she zags. Sometimes she’s being gutsy and courageous, like when she realizes teaching isn’t right for her and quits—and, let’s face it—doing her students a solid, as she really was a terrible teacher. However, other times Hannah was just a thoughtless hot mess, like when her publisher died and she tried to talk business with his grieving widow…at the funeral. These are the two sides of the Gryffindor coin. As the series progresses and Hannah matures, she learns that choices can be both brave and well thought out.

RELATED: Girls: How Will The Series Be Remembered?

It’s a minor miracle the internet didn’t explode with all the debate over Hannah’s nudity. If anyone’s not afraid of getting naked, it’s a Gryffindor. Sometimes Hannah was trying to be deliberately provocative and other times she just wanted to feel free. Many criticized her au natural scenes as gratuitous, where others found them to be an inspiring win for body positivity. Millennial Gryffindors love to give people something to argue about…over soy flat whites.

9 Marnie Michaels – Slytherin

Lots of relationships came and went on Girls. Some were solid and others were doomed from the start. However, none had more undying love and mutual adoration than Marnie’s relationship with herself. The woman is Narcissus personified. Everything Marnie does is to serve her own means, even when she’s seemingly helping other people. She helped organize Hannah’s birthday party, only to strong-arm the reluctant Hannah into singing “Take Me or Leave Me”, just so Marnie could show off her singing skills.

RELATED: Harry Potter: 10 Reasons Slytherin Is The Best House (And 10 Why Gryffindor Is)

Slytherins divide their time equally between admiring themselves and eviscerating others. Though Marnie has plenty to be annoyed with Hannah about—like never paying rent—Marnie often treats her “best friend” as a verbal punching bag. No aspect of Hannah’s life, from her appearance to career path, is safe from Marnie’s eviscerating judgment. Doesn’t ‘Marnie Malfoy’ just roll off the tongue?

8 Jessa Johansson – Gryffindor

The only thing predictable about Jessa is that she will never be predictable. Long ago, her ego and superego moved out of her brain to make room for more id. She marries a man she barely knows. One day Jessa works at a children’s clothing store; the next she’s an artist’s assistant. She goes on drug benders with her father. Later in the series, when many have written Jessa off as a wild child with Peter Pan Syndrome, she cleans up her act. This involves getting sober and declaring she will become a therapist. Oh yeah, then she has a secret relationship with Adam, Hannah’s ex.

Jessa is all over the Marauder’s Map. She never met a consequence she didn’t disregard. That would take all the fun out of being the quintessential Gryffindor daredevil. While her promises may not mean much, Jessa Johansson solemnly swears she’s up to no good.

7 Shoshanna Shapiro – Ravenclaw

Shoshanna is a unicorn in a stable of self-absorbed horses. Though she has her whiny moments, Shosh is always chipper and optimistic, rarely lamenting about what a raw deal life has thrown at her. She approached her college studies with Ravenclaw-like dedication. Upon graduation, Shoshanna was determined to get a well-paying job so as to avoid the financial woes of her friends.

RELATED: Girls: 15 Things The Final Season Got Right

Ravenclaws are known for their bluntness. Sometimes their honesty is appreciated; other times, it’s awkward and inappropriate. Shoshanna really should have kept her mouth shut in her job interview, when she told her potential employer that this was her “back-up job”. However, Shoshanna’s candor is what makes her a fan favorite, like in the infamous “Beach Party” episode where she drunkenly calls out every member of her group. If anyone knows how to give a Luna Lovegood mic drop, it’s Shoshanna Shapiro.

6 Adam Sackler – Gryffindor

Adam grabs life with an iron-like grip of intensity. He attacks his passions the way Hermione attacks a textbook. However, when things get rough, Adam just quits. He’s in a play and there’s conflict with his co-star? The show’s canceled. Adam gets lonely when Hannah’s at school in Iowa? He invites Mimi-Rose Howard to move in…to Hannah’s apartment. Gryffindors tend to live for the moment, only to get distracted by the next moment.

Still, Gryffindors can show remarkable caring and generosity. He shows his love for Jessa time and again, though in a typical bad-boy Gryffindor fashion, Adam’s last episode sees him leaving her for Hannah. However, Hannah and Adam decide not to pursue a relationship. They both know better than to tame his wild, Gryffindor spirit.

5 Ray Ploshansky – Hufflepuff

As the admitted “old man” of the group, Ray can be a bit of curmudgeon. But playing father-figure to a cadre of entitled twenty-somethings is a total drag, so Ray can be forgiven for not always thinking the world is sunshine and rainbows. However, this hipster Eeyore is full of nothing but loyalty to his friends. He’s hired several of them as baristas at Grumpy’s, only to be met with ingratitude and laziness—”That’s not how work works!”. Still, when anyone is in a jam, Ray is there to help, like after Hannah’s hitchhiking fiasco. If somebody needs a favor, Hufflepuffs are always the first to get the call.

Hufflepuff Ray knows what it means to be “unafraid of toil”. When a new traffic light made the noise outside his apartment unbearable, Ray ran for city council and won. Between the car honks and his whiny friends, Ray would certainly savor the quiet of the Hufflepuff common room.

4 Elijah Krantz – Hufflepuff

At the other end of the Hufflepuff spectrum is Elijah. Though he radiates selfishness, Elijah is always a true-blue friend to Hannah. When her relationship with Adam goes up in flames, Elijah moves in with her to help cover the rent. Hufflepuffs often find themselves as ersatz therapists to their friends and Elijah plays that role for the entire Horvath family. After Tad comes out as gay, Elijah takes him under his wing. He also becomes Loreen’s drinking buddy when she becomes understandably upset about the state of her marriage.

RELATED: MBTI® of Girls Characters

Hufflepuffs aren’t known to be worriers and Elijah is by far the least neurotic member of his group. He’s too busy having fun. Life’s a party and even if he’s not invited, Elijah will just crash.

3 Desi Harperin – Slytherin

Desi is an actor whose greatest performance is pretending to give a hoot about other people. He and fellow actor Adam seem to be in competition as to who is the flakiest, but at least Adam cares about his romantic partners before he leaves them, like when he paid for Jessa’s school. On the other hand, Desi is nothing but a taker like when he took $2000 dollars of his and Marnie’s money and spent it on guitar pedals. Or when he refused to let them sell merch on tour because it was too capitalist. While Desi doesn’t display a Slytherin’s outward cruelty—or business sense—there’s no doubting that he’s a snake in the grass.

2 Loreen Horvath – Ravenclaw

Loreen is a professor who tries to educate Hannah in the ways of adulthood. It was Loreen who made the decision to cut her daughter off financially, in the hopes that Hannah would learn to fend for herself. Ravenclaws are intelligent and independent, so it makes sense that they would their kids to be as well.

RELATED: Harry Potter: 15 Things You Didn’t Know About House Ravenclaw

Loreen is thrown for the ultimate loop when Tad comes out, and it leaves a wound that never fully heals. Like a good baby boomer, Loreen did everything she was supposed to and when that still didn’t work out, she becomes as lost as the most directionless millennial. But Loreen will always be a mom, as she showed in the series finale when she became Grandma-to-the-rescue, helping out with Hannah’s newborn. Loreen let Hannah in on a secret, that parenthood is hard work—who knew? To the bitter end, Loreen can always be counted on for some sound Ravenclaw advice.

1 Tad Horvath – Hufflepuff

Hufflepuffs are forever trying to keep the peace and Tad tries to keep his family life as conflict-free as possible. This dear-hearted dad calls his daughter “Hannah-Banana” and he expressed major reservations about no longer paying her bills. While their intentions are good, Hufflepuffs don’t always realize that coddling someone in the short-term will only hurt them in the long-term. Tad’s over-generosity towards Hannah is a major contribution to her lack of independence, according to Loreen—and the viewers.

Tad, like many a Hufflepuff, puts others before himself. However, when one represses their own needs and desires for too long, they tend to bubble to the surface in unexpected and inappropriate ways. After years of hiding his sexuality, Tad blurted out he was gay right before Loreen’s tenure party. From here, their marriage predictably went off the rails but Tad was able to keep an optimistic attitude and wound up in a happy, committed relationship. If Girls taught Tad anything, it’s that sometimes it’s okay to be a little bit selfish.
