5 Most Powerful Wands in Harry Potter Characters
Harry's Wand is one of the most powerful wands in the series. This wand has a phoenix feather core that comes from the same bird that produces a feather for Riddle's wand-Fawkes, Dumbledore's bird. The 11-inch long, holly wand. Wands made of holly-chosen wizards engaged in supernatural or risky conquests are thought to be the ideal pairing for Harry. This interaction between Harry Potter and Voldemort's wands became a hindrance to the pair, as was evident for the first time in their duel in the Little Hangleton cemetery. They had a rare magical effect called Priori Incantatem, in that their wands recognized each other and would not attack each other.
Harry's wand is terminally damaged by Hermione, who uses a blasting curse to save his life from Nagini in Godric's Hollow, which ricochets on his wand. This forces Harry to borrow and command other wands for the rest of Voldemort's age, until he eventually kills the Dark Lord, and uses the Elder Wand to repair his old friend's holly feather core.
Tom Riddle (Voldemort)
Tom Riddle held a very special wand before his ultimately unsuccessful attempt to control the Elder Wand. Riddle's original wand, 13 1/2 inches long, was made of a phoenix feather core. Wands made from the cores of phoenix feathers are one of the highest of the breeds, as they are extremely rare, and produce wands with the greatest range of power, with allegiances that are very hard to win. The Phoenixes themselves are very independent and separate from the world. This feature is believed to make the wands fashioned with their feathers so hard to tame, and the most picky of the wands in selecting potential owners. As rare as a bird and a wand as a master; and Tom Riddle was a rare breed. . Tom was absolutely deserving of being chosen by such a wand, ultimately becoming one of the most powerful wizards of all time, almost taking over the entire universe (twice).
The construction of Dumbledore's original wand is also unknown, but Dumbledore wields the Elder Wand for most of the time we see him during the Harry Potter franchise. The Elder Wand, the most powerful wand ever created, is one of three objects that make up the Deathly Hallows, including the Cloak of Invisibility and the Resurrection Stone.
The Elder Wand was 15 inches long, formed by Death himself, made of elder wood, and contained the center of the tail-hair of Thestral. This core makes a wand much more unique to successfully wield, since only someone who has embraced "death" can even see a Thestral fur, the Elder Wand can be held by very few wizards. Prior to Dumbledore's ownership, the Elder Wand was famously in the possession of Gellert Grindelwald. It fell into the hands of Voldemort after Dumbledore's death.
Although there is no canon wand makeup for one of our favorite Hogwarts professors, we are free to speculate on the basis of Severus Snape's personal characteristics.
This one of the mighty wands, too. The Snape wand would have the core of the unicorn hair, and these wands are the hardest to turn to the dark arts. As the unicorns themselves are the purest creatures in the Harry Potter lore. We see that Snape joins Voldemort's cause, before eventually turning away from the darkness after Lily was killed. The walls with these cores are also the most faithful of the wands, paralleling Snape's fidelity to Lily, Dumbledore, and eventually to Harry. Whatever the wood Snape's wand was made of, it would probably have been a rigid and tough design. Similar to the Bellatrix wand description as "unyielding," Snape's would have been so, albeit for less nefarious reasons.
The wizard's favorite "bad girl," in the world, Bellatrix Lestrange, was Voldemort's right-hand man (and apparently mother to his child). Lestrange was 12 3/4 inches long, made of walnut, and contained a dragon's heartstring core. Ollivander described this wand as "unyielding" a very telling feature of the owner as well. Legend has it that there was a European superstition warning not to grow anything near a walnut tree because it contained evil or poison-also in the walnut-wood wand of Bellatrix.
Bellatrix It used her wand from the age of 11, both before and after her incarceration in Azkaban, to use it for a wide range of treacherous acts, including the torture of Neville Longbottom's parents and the killing of her cousin Sirius Black. It was eventually stolen by the Golden Trio, and then Hermione used it as a fill-in for her own.
