Note: This post contains spoilers for the entire Harry Potter series!
With their hilarious pranks, wacky inventions and clever one-liners, Fred and George Weasley are one of the best and most beloved Harry Potter duos! Whenever the Weasley twins appear in the series (which isn’t as often as we would like), they bring some much-needed comedic relief and never fail to add levity and fun to what is at times and extremely dark and dismal story.
For my latest post on The Blog That Must Not Be Named, I’ve decided to shine a light on Ron’s mischevious older brothers and rank my favourite Fred & George moments!
Check out the list below:
When They Threw Snowballs At Voldemort’s Face
Fans of the books will undoubtedly remember the time Fred and George threw snowballs at the back of Professor Quirrell’s head, meaning they were unknowingly hitting Voldemort in the face.
When They Failed To Fool The Goblet Of Fire
One of the funniest moments in the Harry Potter series came when Fred and George attempted to trick the Goblet of Fire. Of course, things didn’t go exactly to plan and the twins were left with long white beards for their efforts.
When George Lost An Ear
Only Fred and George could find the playful side of losing an appendage.
When They Ditched School in Style
Arguably the most satisfying moment in the series came when the twins abandoned their studies at Hogwarts and showed Professor Umbridge who’s boss.
When They Fought Side By Side Until The Heartbreaking End
I think most fans agree that the death of Fred Weasley and the fact that George must learn to live without his twin is the most emotional and heartbreaking moment in the series.
