Hermione Granger
Name: Hermione Granger 

Background: Hermione Jean Granger is a Muggle-born Gryffindor student, and the best friend of Harry Potter and Ron Weasley.She is an overachiever who excels academically, and is described by Rowling as a "very logical, upright and good" character.

To be fair to Katniss the battle begins in a Hunger Games setting


Katniss Everdeen vs Hermione Granger

Skill :

Katniss is a highly skilled archer, hunter, and trapper,Katniss is a skilled tree-climber, which has benefited her in hunting and the Games. She is usually very logical except for times when her emotions get in the way.

Hermione is portrayed during the whole series as an exceptionally talented young witch. Rowling has stated that Hermione is a "borderline genius". Hermione's most prominent features include her prodigious intellect and cleverness. She is levelheaded, book-smart and is very good with logic.

Katniss: 80/100
Hermione: 65/100

Katniss wins in this round with her forest friendly survival skills.

Intellect :

Katniss is an independent survivalist, lethal, but good at thinking outside the box. Katniss's past hardships (her father's death, mother's depression, and near starvation) have made her a survivor, and she will endure hardship and hard work to preserve her own life and the life of her family. She also has large trust issues, and does not trust anyone.

We all know how intelligent Hermione is, even if you haven’t read it. Her brains are legend. She never stops pushing herself to learn more, and her dedication to academia (as well as a host of other things) is phenomenal. Katniss, on the other hand, can be a little slow. I was frustrated at how long it took her to realise that Peeta actually does have feelings for her. She shows a similar slowness throughout the series. This isn’t really to say that she wouldn’t be intelligent, but she lacks the perception Hermione has.

Katniss: 70/100
Hermione: 85/100

Armor :
  In Mockingjay Katniss receives a bow and arrows from Beetee. They have mechanical properties, and can be voice activated. Although, it is mentioned that Katniss is a skilled knife thrower, she never throws a single knife after she shows her skills to Haymitch and Peeta.

If Katniss can get the jump on Hermione, and gets a killing shot as her first one, she can win. However, if the first shot doesn’t kill or otherwise incapacitate Hermione, the fact that Hermione can spam spells faster than Katniss can shoot means that Katniss is in serious trouble, and probably about to die.

Impervious Charm to slow down/prevent any arrows from hitting.Detection Wards for security (she did this in Deathly Hallows). Disillusionment Charm for extra concealment Reducto for the bow.Transfiguration for creating shelters.Apparition for escape

A wand and those powerful spells prove to be Hermione's greatest Armor !

Katniss: 60/100
Hermione: 75/100

Katniss: 210/300
Hermione: 225/300
Emma Watson as Hermione Granger

Hermione wins. And Emma Watson is Gorgeous :P


  1. Hermione always rules.. Her spells are way faster than Katniss' arrows. Would love to see a Katniss Everdeen vs Susan Pevensie; equally matched skills, same weapons - would be a close matchup.

    1. Initially when I completed the Hunger games trilogy, Katniss seemed really impressive, I gradually recognized her flaws against a Hermione match up.
