Squid Game and Harry Potter are two completely different genres. We understand. The former is about a game and involves lots of violence, the latter is about wizards. Completely different. Ok, noted. BUT, there are a few similarities between the nature of the characters. So, we’ve curated this list for you where we’ll show you the Squid Game’s main character’s Harry Potter counterparts. The characters in Harry Potter aren’t competing for a winning prize but they do engage in crazy adventures. Agreed the storyline for both series and movies are completely different. However, a few characters from both share a few similar personality traits. Check it out! We’re sure you’d agree too.

1. Seong Gi-Hun – Harry Potter

Apart from being the protagonists of their respective storylines, there are a few things that are common in both. Both of them remain loyal to themselves, their loyalty towards their people, and never forget their moral values. Gi-Hun never made friends just because they would prove fruitful in the game. Likewise, Harry Potter drew himself to good people like Ron and Luna, who were looked down upon by others!

2. Cho Sang-Woo – Lucius Malfoy

Both of them have the trait of winning no matter what. Sang-Woo was of a nature who would do anything to win the game. Remember he was willing to betray his best friend Gi-Hun. And, he betrayed Ali badly that killed him. It was the most heartbreaking death in the series. Likewise, Lucius is of the same nature. To win or become wealthy, he would do anything and everything. This can involve many heinous acts. So, that is how both are similar.

3. Hwang Jun-Ho – Sirius Black

Both the characters are in different stories, and will obviously act in the way that fits the storyline. However, one thing that is noteworthy between them is their nature. They both fight for what they believe to the extent that they might even break rules without thinking twice!

4. Kang Sae-Byeok – Ginni Weasley

Sae-Byeok and Ginni, both share the same personality trait. They are shy and underconfident in the beginning. But when they get comfortable, they can stand up for themselves and take the right decisions. So, one should not underestimate both!

5. Oh Il-Nam – Lord Voldemort/Tom Riddle

All of us thought Il-Nam was an innocent old man, until the story’s biggest twist where we realize he is the mastermind behind everything. He manipulated everybody around him to pave his way through. Likewise, Voldemort uses his fake persona to manipulate others around him and feel delighted in watching innocent people suffer.

6. Abdul Ali – Neville Longbottom

Ali and Neville, both are strong allies to the protagonists of their respective stories. Both of them stay true to their strong morals of loyalty, loyalty, and friendship. No matter how much people mocked them, they did what they wanted to. And, they did it amazingly!

7. Han Mi-Nyeo – Bellatrix Lestrange

Even though Mi-Nyeo isn’t as sadistic as Bellatrix Lestrange, but both of them are surely erratic and self-serving.  Both women believe they are the most powerful beings and untouchable. However, Bellatrix is more unstable. But this trait is present in both of them.
