    1Gandalf The Grey/White - L.O.T.R and The Hobbit

  • 2Albus Dumbledore - Harry Potter
    As powerful and wise as he is mysterious and eccentric. The wizarding world was not the same without Dumbledore in it.
    But he also shows himself to be one of the wisest wizards in history, and for a man his age, he is surprisingly athletic, capable of diving into a pool of water like a man much younger, and more physically in-line with a professional athlete.
    Dumbledore is also the only wizard that Lord Voldemort himself had ever feared, which alone amounts to something.
    A master of magic who possessed the Elder Wand from his former love interest, Gellert Grindelwald, Albus Dumbledore is quite honestly the most powerful wizard in all of the world of Harry Potter.
    Don't let this old man's flamboyant personality fool you, he wasn't the Headmaster at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for so many years without some serious credentials.

  • 3Willow Rosenberg - Buffy The Vampire Slayer
    But remember: "The magics I used are very powerful. I'm very powerful. And maybe it's not such a good idea for you to piss me off."
    Thankfully, this side of her is not often needed to come out. As such Willow becomes the nurturing mother-figure of the Scooby-Gang who always has a plan.
    Capable of casting any spell you dare name, offering her strength to her friends in order to help them take down demons, raise the dead, and (when angered) go out on a killing spree in desperation to annihilate those who've harmed the ones she loves.
    Starting out as not much more than a girl that many people at her school would pass by without second glance in the corridor, she befriends Buffy Summers, and joins her in her duty to take down Vampires by offering her skills as a Straight-A student, Mechanical Wiz, and eventually a well-seasoned Witch.
    If rags to riches only had a manifestation of a sweet, yet shy and insecure nerd, to a hela-powerful witch capable of destroying planets, it could only ever be Willow Rosenberg.

  • 4Lord Voldemort - Harry Potter
    Especially when you see how in both magical capability and personality are as terrifying as his snake-like appearance.
    Also known as "You-Know-Who", "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named", or simply as "The Dark Lord", you know a being is to be feared for his power when you're too terrified to speak his name aloud.
    But none are so powerful as the leader of the Death Eaters himself, Lord Voldemort.
    In the world of Harry Potter we've seen many dark and powerful wizards and witches. Namely, Bellatrix Lestrange, and Gellert Grindlewald.

  • 5Hermione Granger - Harry Potter
    Considered by many in the Harry Potter world to be the brightest witch of her age, Hermione is certainly as intelligent as she is skilled with magic.

  • 6Harry Potter - Harry Potter

  • 7Merlin - Merlin
    It's no surprise therefore that he would pretty powerful.
    Arguably the most famous character on all of this list, Merlin was also known as Prince of the Enchanters, and part of King Arthur's Court.
