For years, we all believed that Harry Potter was the Chosen One, the one destined to save the wizarding world from Lord Voldemort, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. BUT, have we been duped? Is it possible that our lightning-bolted boy wonder isn't as special as we thought? What is there was ANOTHER Chosen One? What if it all boiled down to a coin flip? Then Harry Potter would just be an average kid. Maybe there's a universe out there where Harry should be THANKING Lord Voldemort...but I'll leave that to you to judge!

In the book Dobby gave Harry the Gilly weed, I agree with everything else but you can't say that was Neville because that's not what J.K. Rowling wanted and wrote.

Neville didn’t actually give Harry gillyweed. They only have this happen in the movie for time reasons(they do this a lot in goblet of fire) Dobby actually gives Harry the gillyweed. Maybe Dobby is the chosen one?

🙄 I think when it comes to Harry potter theories I'll stick with super Carlin bros, they come up with theories that are believable, not already outlined in the books, and based off the books rather than movies. I mean c'mon did you read the books? This really lessers my opinion of your theories if you can't even get Harry potter canon right

+Hannah Gallifrey A mistake I can understand, but when you make a whole video about something a lot of people really love and you can't get the basics right then they're almost as bad those UZvidrs that make "10 things you didn't know about Harry potter" his other videos are good but he should just stay away from Harry potter if he doesn't put in the effort to get to know the series. I mean even a simple Google search and he would have realised that this isn't a theory but it's literally canon from the books 🙄

@matpat there is only ONE chosen one Neville only fits 2 of 3 requirements. What Dumbledore says is that instead of Voldy making Neville the chosen One he made Harry the chosen One. Most likely because of how similar voldy Harry are, (pure blood father, half blood mother,) and so there were 2 candidates, but there could only be One chosen One. And voldy made the chosen one Harry.

From somewhere (I watch a lot of Harry Potter theories and jazz), that Voldemort chose Harry because he also is a half blood, just like Voldemort. Neville from what I assume isn’t a half blood. Voldemort did not choose him since Harry was the one who showed more importance with the fact of his parents. I heard that Voldemort wanted to recruit the excellent wizards James Potter and his wife Lily Evans. They defied him three times and stayed loyal to Dumbledore. I think Neville’s parents were given the choice too. Since Harry’s parents died already, the Death Eaters probably wanted to kill the Neville’s parents for denying Voldemort to be a Death Eater.

So a disturbingly interesting thought just popped in my head and TBH im afraid to ask it cause its a bit.... risque if you will, but seriously tho, what happens to the little wizards and witches with special needs? I've yet to see a one and that usually means only...one.... Thing.....👀 Dont think i need to say what that is, but you catch my drift right? Yea you do, but does anyone have an answer for me cause im over here thinking the worst.

They have about three pages worth of Dumbledore telling harry about the prophacy. I love your vids, but they mention all of this in the fifth book. Voldy just went for Harry because he was kinda naive

I liked the 5th book mainly BECAUSE of Harry whining. I mean he has always just kind of taken everyone's crap, what if someone walked up to you and said, "Hey, you know that dude that killed your parents and you witnessed kill one of your best friends right before he was resurrected? Yeah well no one is going to believe any of that happened, all the good you do will be witnessed by you and only you, so no one will believe that you actually did that, uh let's see, yes, you're going to have to kill your parents killer, or he's going to kill you, everyone is going to hate you for no reason, what else, uhhh, yeah, oh, and no one is going to tell you anything and everyone is going to treat you like a child even though you have done more then said people will probably ever do in their _lives._ Good luck!" Because that's basically what Dumbledore said to Harry. Yeah I think I'd be pretty pissed and whiny too, how about you?!
Kim Crawford-Cottingham
You're going to have to type the 4th book in by hand as if you surround a word in dashes then it puts a line through it. For example, -Hello and goodbye!-

Oh and yeah this is pretty important to mention; “It means - me?” Dumbledore surveyed him for a moment through his glasses. “The odd thing is, Harry,” he said softly, “that it may not have meant you at all. Sibyll’s prophecy could have applied to two wizard boys, both born at the end of July that year, both of whom had parents in the Order of the Phoenix, both sets of parents having narrowly escaped Voldemort three times. One, of course, was you. The other was Neville Longbottom.” “But then . . . but then, why was it my name on the prophecy and not Neville’s?” “The official record was relabeled after Voldemort’s attack on you as a child,” said Dumbledore. “It seemed plain to the keeper of the Hall of Prophecy that Voldemort could only have tried to kill you because he knew you to be the one to whom Sibyll was referring.” “Then - it might not be me?” said Harry. “I am afraid,” said Dumbledore slowly, looking as though every word cost him a great effort, “that there is no doubt that it _is_ you." “But you said - Neville was born at the end of July too - and his mum and dad -” “You are forgetting the next part of the prophecy, the final identifying feature of the boy who could vanquish Voldemort. . . . Voldemort himself would ‘mark him as his equal.’ And so he did, Harry. He chose you, not Neville. He gave you the scar that has proved both blessing and curse.”

Just reread the first book. Obviously it follows Harry and adds Ron. But the person that is number three and sets the whole more story into motion is Neville. He is first mentioned when Harry enters 9 3/4 and it turns out that his magic abilities show up around the time Harry frees the python from the zoo. It turns out that Neville was planned to be one of the most important characters right from the beginning of the series!

The only thing that ruins this theory is that the prophecy is Harry’s. In the wizarding world, prophecies are about the person they are assigned to. No one else can listen to them but the owner.
