Who is the best and bravest Gryffindor from the Harry Potter franchise? There may be differences between the Harry Potter book series and the films, but what the Sorting Hat looks for when sorting a student into Gryffindor doesn't change. Known to be courageous, chivalrous, daring, and determined, Gryffindors can also have short tempers - lashing out like the lion on their red and gold coat of arms.

Which of these Hogwarts students did the Sorting Hat best choose to enjoy the cozy Gryffindor common room? The incredibly talented Hermione Granger is at the top of the list. But even the half-giant Rubeus Hagrid, who was expelled from Hogwarts in his third year, exemplifies the Gryffindor traits of courageousness and determination.

The memorable performances that brought the books' characters to life populated the Gryffindor House with some of the most interesting people in the Harry Potter films. Even though they all represent Gryffindor, which one does it best?
