The Craziest Harry Potter Fan Theories Ever


The ‘Harry Potter’ books and movies by J.K. Rowling are probably the most magical series. They’ve really captured the imagination of adults and kids all over the world. It’s so easy to get lost in them that it’s no wonder there are some fans who are reading a little more into it than others. For all we know, some of their theories could be spot on! Take a look at the 12 below and make up your own mind!


Many fans believe that Snape is Harry’s real dad due to the close relationship with Lily Potter. Interestingly, there are hints alluding to this which are scattered throughout the book series.

Many fans believe that the Dursleys were originally decent people. You see Voldemort turned Harry into a Horcrux and it’s known that people who are close to one for prolonged periods become nasty. Therefore, they treated Harry badly.


One of the craziest fan-theories is that Harry is a Teletubby. Weirdly though, their head-symbols all make up Harry’s scar!?

Apparently, Hufflepuff is the house for stoners!


Some fans believe J.K. Rowling is Rita Skeeter and that she is a journalist from a secret magical world. Oh and that her books are all true!

Harry created his magical world in his mind due to the traumatic effects of being abused by the Dursleys and he is still in the cupboard under the stairs.

Draco Malfoy is actually a werewolf.

Harry is immortal.

Dumbledore is death. In ‘The Tale of the Three Brothers’ from the ‘Tales of Beedle the Bard’, three siblings are given three objects by Death. Dumbledore offers these same objects so some fans believe he could well actually be Death.


Ginny must have given Harry a love potion as he fell for her very rapidly after not even noticing her in the past.

And finally, some fans believe that Dumbledore is Ron Weasley traveling back in time. Apparently, the chess scene in ‘Philosopher’s Stone’ during which Ron plays a King and a Knight is a metaphor for this!?
