Harry Potter MotW: Best Ron Moment

Harry potter month

[This is a response to Leah’s Harry Potter moment of the week. If you’d like to join in, head on over to Uncorked Thoughts for the full schedule of upcoming themes!

The theme of this week’s Harry Potter Moment of the Week is the “best Ron moment”.

I’m not a huge Ron fan, but he’s undeniably a huge part of the books, and he’s got his fair share of awesome moments.  Although he grew a lot throughout the series, I think his best moment is really early on…

“The best played game of chess that Hogwarts has seen these many years”

Ron sacrifice

I love some of Ron’s funny moments too, but this is probably his best moment for me – sacrificing himself, at age 11, to help Harry get through to the other side.  Not only was it bound to hurt (at least), he knew he was sending his two best friends on into unknown danger that he couldn’t help with, or be a part of…

Not to mention that of course it was Ron’s brains and logic that allowed him to identify the winning strategy in the first place.  Even though he can come across as silly or even stupid at times, he proves that he’s not.  He was simply brilliant in McGonagall’s chess chamber, and so for me, this is his best moment.

Which do you think is Ron’s best moment?

  1. I agree!This moment has always been a favorite of mine. People forget that Ron had to have a clever mind to plot out and win this chess game – with enchanted chess pieces at that! He was willing to sacrifice himself for Harry after only being friends with him for a year. That’s HUGE. Easily one of Ron’s best moments ever!!

  2. This really is such a brilliant moment. It shows the reasons why he is Griffindor because I know JKR made it much more subtle with him. Great choice!
