Harry Potter as he is the chosen one and simply can't be beaten (in the end and after a long journey filled with obstacles... blah blah blah) ;)
| Jul 17, 2009 8:41AM EDT
Remus Lupin. Werewolf and wizard. He's awesome
| Jul 17, 2009 7:55AM EDT
Dark Willow I'm tempted to vote Elphaba because I love her, but reading the book she doesn't really do much. Also want to vote bellatrix, because she's beyond insane and it's amazing.

I'm with others.. Dresden.. most definitely.. Too bad the show didn't last.. :(
| Jul 17, 2009 5:08AM EDT
Merlin from Merlin or Snape for being the best bad guy who is actually a good guy ever
| Jul 17, 2009 3:33AM EDT
So I have read more of the books of these then watched the shows/movies in them. But if you have read any of the books there is only a few that actually stand a chance. From Harry Potter it would be either Dumbledore or Voldemort. Gandalf, Richard Rahl (or as he is known in the TV show Richard Cypher). But if I had to pick one to win it all it would be HARRY DRESDEN. He is powerful and far more clever and resourceful than any of the others so my vote is for him!
| Jul 17, 2009 3:18AM EDT
Albus Dumbledore!
| Jul 17, 2009 1:41AM EDT
Dark Willow!! i too think it would of be more "exciting" to do this battle a la butt-kicking babes battles form!!
| Jul 17, 2009 1:34AM EDT
Not in order.... I will give my reasons later; will probably add more too Manga - Yuko~ xxxHolicMarvel Universe - Nico Minoru~ RunawaysDoctor Strange~ Doctor StrangeTV - Willow (dark & light)~ Buffy the Vampire SlayerCharmed Ones (Piper, Pheobe, Paige)~ Charmed to be continued.....

HARRY POTTER. He defeated the most vicious wizard of all time. no comparison. none.

maryann from true blood is not a witch. not going to give it away for those who haven't read the book but witch isn't it.
| Jul 16, 2009 1:05PM EDT
Gotta be Dumbledore... At his best he is more powerful than all of them.
| Jul 16, 2009 1:02PM EDT
The Warlock from the Warlock movies
| Jul 16, 2009 1:01PM EDT
Dark Willow The HP people would lose because whoever they came up against would just get rid of the wand and therefore their power.
| Jul 16, 2009 11:29AM EDT
| Jul 16, 2009 10:43AM EDT
dark willow she would own any wizard who needs to use wand by just taking it away from them thats why most of the wizards from harry potter would lose no wand no magic
| Jul 16, 2009 9:41AM EDT
Woops - I suspect we're not supposed to choose one from each of the two lists. In that case, my vote goes to Snape.
| Jul 16, 2009 9:37AM EDT
Severus Snape,Gandalf Also: using the other format would be much better. My second choices from each: Hermione GrangerHarry Dresden
| Jul 16, 2009 9:31AM EDT
Piper Halliwell
| Jul 16, 2009 8:06AM EDT
Why has no-one put Granny Weatherwax from the Discworld? Not only is she great with headology, when she actually uses magic she kicks arse- most powerful witch ever! Go Granny!
| Jul 16, 2009 6:46AM EDT
Dark Willow
| Jul 16, 2009 6:26AM EDT

| Jul 16, 2009 12:00AM EDT
gandalh, maleficent, maryann, elphaba
| Jul 15, 2009 11:59PM EDT
Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander! hands down.
| Jul 15, 2009 11:59PM EDT
I also would have preferred the format from the vampire battle, perhaps the top 20 can use that format? These 7 I thought were very close in power. The rest of the list would get slaughtered 1 on 1 vs any of them. (in order of most powerful to least)Dark Willow - Buffy The Vampire SlayerDarken Rahl - Legend of the SeekerZeddicus Zu'l Zorander - Legend of the SeekerWyatt Halliwell - CharmedMerlin - Arthurian Legend, (in the TV show he's not powerful enough yet)Albus DumbledoreEthan Rayne - Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Harry Dresden

Hermione Granger, just because Emma Watson is hot.
| Jul 15, 2009 10:59PM EDT
Albus Dumbledore. Even though he's dead :(

harry potter wise, definitely Sirius Black. otherwise, Dark Willow.
| Jul 15, 2009 10:17PM EDT
Merlin 100%
| Jul 15, 2009 10:15PM EDT
Dark Willow
| Jul 15, 2009 10:06PM EDT
Gandalf. (although Tim the Enchanter is a close second)
| Jul 15, 2009 9:49PM EDT
I have to go with Merlin. In the show he is probably not the best but in literature he is pretty impressive so I will hold out hope for his evolution. I also agree that the round robin format would be good for this wizard showdown.
| Jul 15, 2009 9:29PM EDT
why do you have voldamort and tom riddle. thats like listing gandalf grey and white and good and bad willow, there both the same people.
| Jul 15, 2009 8:16PM EDT
Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander!!U guys should look into "Legend of the Seeker"
| Jul 15, 2009 7:58PM EDT
I gotta vote for Ginny Weasley here. She needs some votes. (I wanna vote for Piper Halliwell & Willow Rosenberg too, but if I can only pick one I gotta go with Ginny)
| Jul 15, 2009 7:57PM EDT
elphaba from wicked!
| Jul 15, 2009 7:53PM EDT
voldemort ftw!
| Jul 15, 2009 7:08PM EDT
Dumbledore I wish this was in the format of the vampire and butt-kicking babes battles.
| Jul 15, 2009 6:54PM EDT
John Constantine for the win
