Harry Potter Domanda

Do people give Bellatrix too much credit?

Now, I'm not making this domanda to "hate" on Bellatrix. In fact, she's my preferito villain in the whole series, and she's very intriguing and complex.
That said, I think people give Bellatrix too much credit. I recently talked with someone who detto that Bellatrix could fight Hermione, Ginny, Luna, McGonagall, Tonks, Professor Sprout, and Amelia Bones and still either win o at least be equal to all of them together.
First of all, Hermione, Ginny, and Luna could hold her off together equally. Tonks was a highly skilled Auror. McGonagall was almost on the same level as Voldemort and Dumbledore, who both were obviously stronger than Bellatrix. And Madam Bones was detto to be an especially gifted witch, who put up a very good fight against Voldemort, and it took McGonagall, Kingsley and Slughorn to be equal to him. So again, McGonagall is stronger than Bellatrix. So including McGonagall, Tonks, Sprout, and Madam Bones in the fight when Hermione, Ginny, and Luna were already equal to Bella (if Hermione was using a proper wand, they would've won) is just ridiculous. Bellatrix does not equal every other powerful woman in the series.

No. If anything I think people underestimate her. Honestly o don't know who te were talking to but I've been in the Bella fandom for at least 5 years now and never have I met someone who all 7 people at once and win. te must have run into someone whose extremely biased. However I have no doubt she could take down Sprout and Bones as well as maybe one of the others at once.

As for her abilities she (and I'm gonna have to peek back on the libri for this one) in canon did take on Ginny Luna and Hermione all at once and still had the upper hand o at least was evenly matched. And that was three on one with one of the brightest witches. As for Tonks Bella can definitely take her down; Bella killed her in canon. Highly skilled auror o not Bellatrix beat her.

Voldy and Dumbledore were più powerful than everyone so that's just that. As for McGonagall we already had a lengthy discussion about that which got super heated so I'm not going there again because I hold strong to what I detto before; Bellatrix can beat her o at the very least hold even.

On superiore, in alto of this Bella was taught da Voldemort himself, isn't above the unforgivables, can use wandless Magic, can preform occlumacy (sp?), and so on. She has a lot of power on her side I'm pretty sure it was stated that she was also one of Voldy's most powerful allies.

But yeah I agree it's crazy for someone to say she can take on 7+ people all at once. One da one I can see working but not all 7. Again idk who te were talking to lol...was this online?

Anyhow no hate intended here either and I may modifica this once I get off of mobile.

When was she shown using wandless magic? I can't remember that.

She killed a volpe on her way to Spinners End in HBP.

You're right in saying that claiming Bellatrix could fight off 7 other witches at once, on her own, is a ridiculous exaggeration. As te pointed out, she was fighting against 3 of the listed 7 at the end of the Battle of Hogwarts. If she could beat the 7 at once, she'd have defeated those 3 quickly.
