Katniss VS Hermione

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

Random question of the day - if Katniss and Hermione would fight, who would win? No bow and arrow, no wands, no anything.
Haha. Would definitely love to hear what you think! Tell me who you think would win, and why you think that way.

  1. Hermione!!
    Actually I don't know who would win. I just hope it's Hermione because I love her so much.
    I think it's to do with long-term loyalty to Harry Potter. I started reading HP when I was 11, and Hermione was the first literary heroine to whom I could completely relate to. And she made being a nerd look so cool!

    Katniss is brave, tough and everything - but not so believable or easy to relate to.

    So I didn't actually answer your question lol. But it will be interesting to see what others think.

  2. While Hermione is my favorite and I'd hope she'd win, I have a feeling it would actually be Katniss-she is a survivor. Hermione has a lot of book knowledge but it appears to be more of the magical world rather than the muggle world. Without her wand, Hermione wouldn't have as good a chance in a fight.

    1. Hahaha! Well i honestly don't know either but, i wonder if you're talking about Lawrence and Emma or Katniss and Hermione. Well I hope it's Hermione. But considering how the books made Katniss look all that hard chore and everything, I think it'll be her

    2. Hermoine is not all about book smart she punched Draco Malfoy dont forget that and she is a BOSS. She is smart enough to figure a strategy thats the way

  3. If it was a physical fight, Katniss would win I think. But if it was a battle of wits? Hermione for sure! They each have their own strengths.
    Great question!

  4. Excellent question! I agree with Belle, in saying that they each have their own strengths and they would probably win different battles. Maybe.....I got it! Hermione and Katniss are both good with plants, if it was a battle involved with herbolgy, I'm sure it would be quite a show. :) Great question, Jillian.

  5. Haha!! Awesome!!
    Ok, this is my view regarding this battle..

    If it is physical battle, of course Katnis will be the champion. But if it is of riddles and tests I'm rooting for Ms Granger. If it is a combo of intelligent and strength I don't really know what would happen.. haha!!

  6. A physical battle hands down goes to Katniss. She may be good with arrows but her life has made her physically stronger then your average girl I;m guessing. She has survival skills and is street smart. Hermione might be a good strategist but then again so is Katniss. I think this one is fairly obvious :)

  7. Hmm, a fight between badass Katniss and booknerd Hermione? No question. But assuming bows and arrows and magic were involved, Hermione would for sure win. Hermione is one powerful witch.

  8. hmmm...I dont know who Katniss is. But I am a fan of Hermiones :)

  9. Misha - haha so do I. I hope she wins because I love her LOL. How biased are we?

    Christina T - Yeah I definitely love Hermione more, but realistically, Katniss is much stronger!

    Belle - Good answer - I agree.

    Brooke - How interesting. Didn't think about herbology there.

    cj - Hm now you got me thinking what would happen if they did fight using both their brains and strength?

    Aly - Katniss definitely is stronger physically and has better survival skills than Hermione.

    Aylee - If Hermione had a wand, she'd win, guaranteed. But you're right, Katniss is pretty badass and can beat anybody in a physical fight.

    naida - Haha I am fan of Hermione as well. Though Katniss may be a bit stronger, physically.

  10. Katniss could probably take her in a fistfight, but if it were a fight of logic and cunning, rather than brute strength...totally Hermione for sure! :)

  13. bahaha I love this question! I think it'd be a pretty fair fight, but I'd be rooting for Hermione. I'm just remembering how she decked Malfoy in the face! :)

  14. Jessica - I'm very biased. I'd be rooting for Hermione as well, even though I think Katniss would win.

  15. Hermione would win because Katniss quibbles, worries, and then ends up acting without thinking. Hermione plans everything out. But then again, Hermione doesn't have Katniss's capacity for violence.

  16. Oh no fair!! Well if I have to play along...

    I think Katniss would win but I would want Hermione to win.

    Hermione is smart but without magic...I don't see it. I think Katniss can survive without the bow and arrow because she just seems like she's a bit more on the rough side.

    But if they both have their respective gifts, I think Hermione would take it.

    FANTASTIC Question!! It made me all emotional and excited at the same time.

  17. I think if it's strictly a physical battle that Katniss would win. Not only is she tough she had all sorts of different physical tests/training in prep for THG.

  18. Oh, what an awesome question :) I actually want to say Hermione because, you know, I'm way more of a HP fan than a HG one.

    We already know though that Hermione isn't so good under pressure (haha, "there's no wood!") and Kat is a survivor.

    Great question!

  19. I'm with Belle. I think Katniss in a physical fight and Hermione in a mental one, though I'd root for Hermione.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haha everyone is saying the same thing - rooting for Hermione, but most likely, Katniss will win in a physical fight.

  21. Hermione! Don't get me wrong, because I loved both books, but Hermione is a sooo smart that she'll figure it out in no time.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hermione as long as she has her wand. If Katniss happens to use her bow and arrow to knock it out of her hand, then Katniss would win.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Honest to gosh I think Katniss would win if it was a test of wits or a physical competition. She grasps subtle shades of meaning and intent extremely well and is utterly ruthless when it comes to the physical and she knows how to perfectly balance the two. So while I love Hermione, sorry pumpkin, she'd go down.

  24. Liza - very good point!
    Juju - Yes, if they both had their weapons it'd be an equal fight!
    Anonymous - That's a very good point. Katniss learned to be smart in the HG games too.

  25. Totally Katniss, losing her father, forcing for her to hunt has made her a very strong induvidual, yet Hermione is book-smart. If they had wands/bow & arrows honesty i dont know who would win, but id be rooting for Katniss!! :)

  26. I adore both characters, but Hermione all the way. Hermione has the brains and the competitiveness to do it. I don't really think Hermione's wits depended on the books she read. No. Anyone can take in as much information as he/she can, but it's up to how he/she processes it to be able to apply the knowledge. Hermione's naturally logical and clever.

    So is Katniss.

    My darlings, the settings of the books they came from are different. If Hermione was set in a world without wands, she'd be as physically good as Katniss. So would Katniss be had she been set in the wizarding world.

    What hits Katniss down would be the emotional aspect of the character. Katniss is a proud character. She does have concerns and feelings for people she care for, but at times, she's simply hateful and stubborn. She doesn't even listen to people until at some point in the trilogy. Hermione IS stubborn too, but to a reasonable degree. Plus, Hermione is much more emotionally attached and expressive--in that Hermione way (as in, whenever she scolds Harry and Ron for their schemes. You get my drift.) Also, imagine, who ever would be a better mother?

    Another thing is the characteristic of steadfastness. Both of them lost a LOT of people due to war. But who remained composed and together in the end? I'd like to think that Hermione did. Katniss practically woke up in the hospital or dark corner every effing time in Mockingjay. She just didn't hold it together. You DO remember that she got tortured by Bellatrix and had to remove the memories of her parents, don't you? I mean, that would hurt a lot. Just so you can keep your friends and family safe. I'm sure Katniss would have done the same thing, though. I just think Hermione's much humbler in a lot of aspects.

    On another note, it is a good point that Katniss is a great survivor, from her family to the Games. But Hermione had her own sacrifices and made better choices.

    1. I guess Katniss is also a good mother, though. in the case of Prim, I mean. But it felt awkward when she called her children 'the boy' and 'the girl' in the epilogue of Mockingjay. There might be other reasons to that, though.

  27. It depends if Katniss knew she was going up against a witch, what type of battle it is, and where they are fighting. Katniss is very smart, strong, and a great shot. She may be able to get a shot at Hermione before Hermione acknowladged her because of her hunting skills. Katniss would need cover and higher ground to win if magic was involved, but in physical battles I'd say goodbye to Hermione. Hermione could win in an open area with ease. So I'd say they have a fair fight going on! But, since I am not Voldemort nor the Capitol, I wouldn't watch my favorite book characters ever fight to the death. Nice question though.

  28. Lol now im getting weird scenes where Hermione has to fight in the Hunger Games (against Malfoy) and Katniss goes to Hogwarts (and meets Peeta, though i am a avid Gale supporter)

    Though I think physically Katniss but a battle of brains would totally declare Hermione as the winner.

    1. Man, you guys all dis Katniss's brains! She is a very smart girl and would be smarter if she had the educational experiences that Hermione had! I know that Katniss isn't as smart as Hermione, but she has a very good mind in all the books! Ugh, just because she was raised in District 12 doesn't mean she is stupid. I think it is fair as long as Hermione doesn't have a wand cuz that is just like 'Avada Kedavra' and you have a corpse!

  29. I love them both and I truly admire Katniss' courage. But since she is only human, Hermione would win without doubt. I prefer Katniss as a heroine though...

  30. Awesome question! I am a huge fan of both series and have a rather Hermione-clever question to counter with: Why would the girls be fighting? Baised on their pearsonalities, wouldn't they be more likely to team up against, I don't know, The Capitol or a Dark wizard, depending on who's turf they were on?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ok I am not a Hermione fan and I've seen some clips of both movies and it looks like Katniss is the winner she seems much stronger and yeah I luv Katniss

    ReplyDelete
  32. Actually, I like Hermione and all, but I like Katniss better. But that's not why I think she would win. Katniss is a survivor-she can hunt, climb trees, and make snares. Especially without weapons, Katniss would crush Hermione like a bug because, even though Katniss pretty much needs her bow and arrows, Hermione is useless without her wand. Hermione's actually not that awesome without her wand.

  33. I think Hermione is cool, but Katniss is better!! If anyone thinks otherwise watch both the movies and Hermione will seem lame against Katniss!!!

  34. hermione because katniss goes crazy in mockingjay

    1. Hermione is NOT PERFECT. I agree, nor is Katniss, but your all forgetting, Katniss is clever too. I mean, she survived the Hunger Games TWICE. One of those times she WON. You need to think; I mean, did she survive 'cos of brute force??? No. Tracker Jacker Nest, Peeta's leg, Finnick's Reaction to the Fog, The Nightlock Berries, President Snow's Death and Life, Cato's hand, the list goes on... Katniss would win for sure.

  35. Katniss went mad for many reasons... More bad things happened to Katniss than to Hermione, just count on your fingers!!! (On second thoughts, don't, you have to have about 1000 fingers for Katniss...)

  36. Oh, yeah, Katniss for sure shes v v v v v v clever and strong but Hermione...

    ReplyDelete
  37. It'd be a tie. I can't imagine Hermione being a physical fighter (unless you can learn it from a book and Hermione would have done that obviously) but I'm sure she would be able to figure it out and if not win the fight, would at least prevent her ass from getting beat.She is a quick learner and fast thinker so she might win even without the help of luck/wands and magic

    Katniss would definitely win if she just thought things through a little more, but she has the skill,the brains the strength and the power,but just not the thinking things through. She is a bit spontaneous and rash but she'd have no worries if she thought things through a bit more.

    So I'd bet they have equal chances.
