Without Hermione, both Ron and Harry would've been dead repeatedly. Not only that, but she held them together when they were ready to rip each other to pieces, acting as the glue in their little trio of heroes. Her powers of observation were unmatched and she was a mental sponge, absorbing all sorts of knowledge that kept them out of trouble numerous times. She was also the mastermind behind Dumbledore's Army, a group of children that played an absolutely crucial role in The Deathly Hallows. Not to mention that she took on one of the craziest, deadliest witches to ever live and didn't get herself killed. Those are just a small handful of the things she did to aid Harry on his quest to vanquish Voldemort and save the poor house-elves from their lives in slavery.
Who do you think is the real hero of Harry Potter? Harry? Hermione? Ron? Mrs. Weasley? Chime in!
