These characters are all from the books (I would definitely not use the movies to go by in this). There is actually one character (#30) who is excluded from all the movies but is in all the books. If you have any more suggestions of anyone I forgot in this list or anyone who doesn't trigger a mine (since there are ALOT of characters) leave a comment about it and I'll see what I can do.
Aug 5th, 2011 at 13:37 GMT
Sorry about the strange stats but I had to add in several characters I thought I had included but hadn't.
Aug 5th, 2011 at 17:13 GMT
i tried percy and it boomed. i'm pretty sure he appears in all 7 books albeit briefly in half blood prince
Aug 5th, 2011 at 17:46 GMT
Molly, Arthur, and Percy don't trigger the mine. Hedwig definitely appears in the movies, but I think #30 must have changed because you've added in more (Peeves is #31, so that's definitely who you were talking about). Great idea for a quiz! And yes, Percy does appear in the Half-Blood Prince when Scrimgeour brings him to the Burrow as an excuse to talk to Harry.
Aug 5th, 2011 at 19:33 GMT
Definitely a great quiz idea Davidos. You need to make sure every character which isn't in the list make it go 'BOOM'. I'd put a game note saying characters only included in 'Harry Potter Top 200' and only use characters featured in the 'Top 200'.
Aug 5th, 2011 at 19:56 GMT
oh sorry yeah peeves was number 30 before i added crabbe goyle and fang. Also I used the quiz top 200 hary potter characters to find the others but some of the extremely obscure ones I didn't out in because it was taking FOREVER and I figured no one would try some of them. I will check about Percy, I was thinking about him but not sure. Also Mrs. Weasley is in the list (it might not accept Molly idk I'll check) and I guess I forgot to add Mr. Weasley to the mine list. I'll fix these.
Aug 5th, 2011 at 20:05 GMT
You were correct, Percy was in all so I added him. Guess the movies messes up my judgment of that. Also I only had Mr. Weasley as a mine not arthur (fixed) and Molly Weasley (not just Molly, also fixed now) accepted. I also rearranged the order so Peeves is again number 30.
Aug 5th, 2011 at 20:30 GMT
Great quiz, but still has a few issues. Eg. Filch is on the list twice, and I typed Ernie and Justin and neither set off the mine (I also tried adding their last names but I might have spelled them wrong). Once you work out all the kinks, I'd say it'd be worthy of nomination!
Aug 5th, 2011 at 22:07 GMT
sorry when I was switching the stuff around it was really glitchy. I'll fix that
Aug 5th, 2011 at 22:49 GMT
Sorry I got rid of the minefield bit. The game editer was spazzing and kept deleting and adding in rows and changing information. I finally think I have it stopped. Hopefully it won't do anything else weird.
Aug 8th, 2011 at 04:00 GMT
Since it's not a minefield any more, maybe knock a minute or two off the time limit? 5 minutes seems a bit much; I ended up just using extra time to name all the characters I could think of.
Aug 31st, 2011 at 20:35 GMT
I think Nick should also be accepted for #34. That is usually an accepted answer in other quizzes.
Aug 31st, 2011 at 20:35 GMT
Given the short time, I suggest accepting "Nick" as a correct answer.
Aug 31st, 2011 at 22:44 GMT
Ok, I actually thought it had already accepted Nick but was wrong so I changed it.
Aug 31st, 2011 at 23:14 GMT
I never thought I would see the day when a Harry Potter quiz would see the series' namesake guessed only 79% of the time.
Sep 1st, 2011 at 00:03 GMT
That's cause it started out as a minefield quiz, and so when that happened Harry wouldn't count when someone hit the mine. Still does seem strange.
Sep 1st, 2011 at 12:49 GMT
Good quiz, but I think it could do with another minute, 3 is a bit tight. 5 seconds per answer doesn't give much thinking time.
Sep 2nd, 2011 at 02:32 GMT
Katie Bell! Noooo! (got all the others) I personally think you've got the timing just right, you don't need longer (in my opinion anyway) Nice job.
Sep 2nd, 2011 at 18:16 GMT
Isn't Fudge in them all? I misssed Filch, Mrs Norris and Poppy
Sep 2nd, 2011 at 18:21 GMT
Also, what about the fat lady?
Sep 2nd, 2011 at 18:51 GMT
Arthur really isn't in all of the books? And Percy is?
Color me shocked.
Sep 2nd, 2011 at 19:50 GMT
@hevabean. fudge is not in Deathly Hallows. He resigns in HBP and then in DH Thicknesse and Voldemort take over. @hevabean. also the fat lady is not in DH. harry talks about going back to his bed in his dorm but never goes there before it ends. @lucyinthesky9. Arthur is only mentioned in the first (he's not at platform 9 3/4 like mrs. weasley and ginny. Percy goes to school in the first one and then appears in all of the books (including fighting in the battle of Hogwarts.
Sep 2nd, 2011 at 23:33 GMT
Spectacular quiz! I loved the time where it was. I'll bet that I would have gotten one or two more if I had more time, but I like the challenge of it. Is there any significance to the order of the characters on the list?
Sep 3rd, 2011 at 00:21 GMT
No the order is random (doesnt change each game though). I just put them in as I thought or found out about them. Some people I tried to group who are similar together though (malfoy, crabbe, goyle)
Sep 3rd, 2011 at 02:03 GMT
@davidos; I wasn't saying that you were mistaken, just that I was shocked. Fantastic quiz, loved every brain-racking second of it.
Sep 4th, 2011 at 19:30 GMT
what book is voldemort not mentioned in?
Sep 4th, 2011 at 20:49 GMT
Voldemort never appears in the 3rd (he also is only in flashbacks [pensieve] in the 6th book).
Sep 4th, 2011 at 20:50 GMT
thank you for accepting minerva. I can never spell her last name.

What makes a dog with no speaking roles and almost no plot relevance a character? Does simply appearing in the book make a pet a fully-fledged character?
Sep 9th, 2011 at 11:33 GMT
He's got a name and he actually is important in some parts (he goes with Harry into the forest several times and always seems to be willing to drool on them when they come to Hagrid's hut).
Sep 12th, 2011 at 00:24 GMT
@Sitsaln: How dare you insult Fang! He may be a bit cowardly, but Hagrid loves him, and he's a cute doggy! He is a living creature. And now after all that ranting I really want a puppy. :(
Oct 19th, 2011 at 02:14 GMT
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I can't recall Wormtail being in the fifth book at all other than being mentioned.
Oct 19th, 2011 at 11:24 GMT
He apparently does only appear in a flashback, sorry i must have missed that.
Oct 26th, 2011 at 04:16 GMT
It's kind of sad that Peeves was in all seven books but they never bothered to show him in any of the movies. It would have been fun to see him on the screen.
Nov 4th, 2011 at 23:19 GMT
haha i can't believe i forgot the dursleys! and fang too... i'm so ashamed. great quiz! :)
Nov 16th, 2011 at 22:30 GMT
I didnt know this was a mine-thingy!! But, I WONDER WHY, HE-WHO-MUST-NOT-BE-NAMED IS NOT IN THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nov 27th, 2011 at 14:23 GMT
he is not on there because he didnt appear in Prisoner of Azkaban,he was only talked about also im glad this quiz was not a minefield, i would've never been able to beat it!
Dec 10th, 2011 at 19:08 GMT
I forgot Katie Bell and Fang >
Dec 24th, 2012 at 00:07 GMT
