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.

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

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

The HP people would lose because whoever they came up against would just get rid of the wand and therefore their power.

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!

Picture?type=square&height=200&width=200
Jul 17, 2009 5:08AM EDT

Merlin from Merlin
or
Snape for being the best bad guy who is actually a good guy ever

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.
