Fair warning. Today’s theory will completely alter the way you watch movies 3 through 7 Part 2 (otherwise known as 8 for any sane human), of
the Harry Potter series. If you want to preserve the memories of those, go binge watch them now because after today, you will never look at the battle between these two wizards the same way again. Your childhoods have been warned. (HEDWIG’S THEME) Hello internet!
Welcome to Film Theory, the show where I was gonna do a episode on Fantastic Beasts but frankly the more I looked into that movie the more I just wanted to go back and talk about some good old-fashioned Harry Potter. You know that feel when you gotta Scamander and you just want a little bit more Longbottom?
You know what I mean? You know what I mean?
YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN! So anyway in combing back through the old Potter lore to piece together the secrets of magical beasts which will eventually become a theory so don’t get your Nifflers in a twist. I discovered something that literally changed everything I thought I knew about everyone’s favorite boy who lived, and no it’s not something that’s an obvious part of the story’s lore, at least I don’t think so. In a weird way,
Harry should be thanking Voldemort, otherwise he would have just been well, Neville. Then again that Neville one surprised me too when I put all the pieces together, but apparently it was old news to a bunch of the Potterheads but hey okay, I’m sorry I’m not the type of person who remembers from memory what the Dursleys were eating for breakfast on the morning that Harry was invited to the Quidditch World Cup! It was grapefruit right?
I think that was grapefruit (It is MATPAT) . That’s my answer. Grapefruit.
Let me know in the comments if I’m right. Anyway, theory hinges on an ancient
form of magic, number magic, otherwise known as MATH. (oh no!) Man, can you think about how much more excited everyone would be to have their 5th period class be number magic
instead of math? Math, real talk, you got yourself a branding problem, and heck no wonder Harry & Co. didn’t figure this one out themselves since number magic isn’t even a
subject that they’re taught. (Fun fact: It’s called Arithmancy in the wizarding world) But don’t you worry because I’ve got you covered, so hop on those Firebolts ’cause away we go. For this theory we get to go back, way back… to Harry Potter Part 6. Long before Harry pulled the ultimate
fan boy move and named his kid Albus Severus Potter.
*Price is Right Failure Sound* We got this scene, where we see Tom Riddle, otherwise known as Pre-Voldemort, learning about splitting his soul using dark magic: “It’s called, as I understand it, a Horcrux.” It’s the first time that we hear Tom Riddle specifically mentioned Horcruxes, which we know he later uses to divide up his soul into neat little slices of soul pie and shove ’em into pretty much anything he can get his hands on from books to cups to snakes, SNAKES not SNAPES. Though, real talk, how awesome
would it be to have Snapes on a Plane? Get these mo (of course) Snapes off my mother (of course) plane! Samuel L. Jackson must’ve failed potions. Oh and by the way, this joke in fond memory of Alan Rickman.
You are certainly missed, sir. T^T Now, enough sadness back to the theory, as Slughorn mentions in the scene, Horcrux talk is no laughing matter. “This is very dark stuff, very dark indeed.” Tom says probably what we’re all thinking: “I didn’t fully understand it.” Like the cheeky little scamp
that he is, but in all seriousness how does this work because if you really stop to think about it there are some pretty severe implications to this whole Horcrux business that goes unexplored in the books and movies, so before we go there let me remind you of the mechanics of splitting your soul. This one is for all of us who aren’t hardcore enough to have yawned their way through the Deathly Hallows Part 1 fifteen times. Let’s be honest here for a second, we can all agree right that Ron being gifted and brought back by a Deluminator is a pretty darn goofy moment right? Am I only one who thinks that still? Because seriously the thing just takes light away from things; it doesn’t also have a magical teleportation device in it. That’s just random. You must be jk, J.K. Anyway a Horcrux is an object that contains or hides part of someone’s soul, thus allowing them to survive should someone kill their original body. It’s like a bank but instead of money you store souls, just like a real Bank! Have you seen those interest rates lately? Seriously, less than 1 percent?
What are you doing economy? Anyway, in the scene we saw before Slughorn dishes up some really handy exposition by telling us that to create a Horcrux we have to commit a murder, then somehow use the life energy transferred during that murder to split your own soul in half and sort of rip part of it out of your body and cram it into the nearest
object of your choice. Preferably something with a little staying power and not that week old block of cheese in the back your fridge, though, I will admit that thing’s been in there for a while and at this point I ain’t touchin’ it, so perhaps that cheese is the safest vessel for that soul. Anyway, based on info from the
books and the movies, the The actual mechanics of soul cutting and soul transferring are a bit hazy,
but it’s not like we’re writing an eHow page on
the subject. We get the general point that when you create a Horcrux you’re splitting your soul in half between your body and an object and that tells us everything we need for today’s theory, so Tom Riddle and (Professor) Slughorn talk about splitting the soul into seven pieces but we all assumed that it’s seven equal pieces. It is most definitely not. Every time Voldemort splits his soul in half, he only leaves half of his remaining soul in his own body; then, the next time he creates a Horcrux, it splits in half again. Over and over. So what does that mean?
Well, let’s walk through some history that must not be named to see how it all plays out. He starts in 1943 with one whole soul. This conversation with Slughorn happens after the school year starts in 1943 when Tom is 16 years old. In The Chamber of Secrets, we learned that Tom Riddle puts his 16-year old soul into his diary. Thus creating the first Horcrux. To create this Horcrux, he kills Moaning Myrtle which we also confirm when he describes her killer as a boy speaking
a strange language. “But they said something funny, a kind
of made up language.” (A Tom Riddle speaking Parseltongue) With one Horcrux made, he who must need a rhinoplasty is down to 50 percent of a soul, with the other 50 percent locked into the diary. At this point we know then that The Diary is the Horcrux that contains the largest percentage of Voldemort. After that, the creation of each Horcrux is supposedly tied to a major murder committed by Tom, at least according to J.K. Rowling in a rule that we’ll see her break in just under 45 seconds. Now when Tom kills his father, Tom Riddle Senior, he creates the Marvolo Gaunt
Ring Horcrux which we see on his finger in the scene with Slughorn. This is around the time of him creating the diary also when he’s either 16 or 17, and since we’re taking half the soul Voldemort has remaining this means that the Gaunt Ring has 25 percent Tom and Tom himself is down to 25 percent, and with his prospects rapidly falling. Next, he kills Hepzibah. Hepzibah. I don’t know how to say your name Hepzibah but I’m gonna say it that way
cause it’s fun to say. Next he kills Hepzibah Smith in 1945 followed by a random muggle like I said, J.K. breaking your own rule. Anyway, two characters aren’t really in the movies but were confirmed in a web interview with JK Rowling’s in 2007. Tom bumps them both off and splits his soul into the Hufflepuff Cup that we see in Goblet of Fire and the Slytherin Locket that shows up at the Sirius Black Estate, so these Horcruxes have 12.5 percent soul and 6.25 percent soul with Tom himself being down to 6.25 percent. If you think about what that means that’s actually not surprising that as he rises to power you see him start to physically change in response to his soul being drained. If you could lose over ninety-five percent of your soul and only really be missing some skin pigment, your hair, and your nose, that’s not such a bad trade-off for immortality all things considered. I’m just saying. Anyway, the next Horcrux is in 1956, The Ravenclaw Diadem. (The subber is a Ravenclaw) We know Voldemort. (Ravenclaw squad where you at?) shows back up at Hogwarts at this point to ask Dumbledore to become the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher which Dumbledore turns him down for. After that, Voldermort, get this, curses the position and everyone who holds it from then on, hence the reason why every year there’s a new teacher in the position. I honestly didn’t know this until reading up on all the lore bits on the Pottermore site. Isn’t that insane? Voldermort is like
the sorest loser ever, and it’s worth mentioning that this is probably Voldermort’s most effective spell of the entire series. Anyway, JK Rowling has also confirmed in several interviews that Voldemort cursed the position and the curse wasn’t broken until he died, and since he was in the neighborhood anyway, he hid the Diadem Horcrux in the Room of Requirement, which despite what he says about it in the book, was ridiculously easy to find. Here’s a bright idea.
Let me hide this item in a room that, if someone is required to kill me, will make sure it shows up right in time for that person, what an excellent hiding spot! Then again I suppose he required that the room needed to be hidden so he wouldn’t die so really we just have the Room of Requirement playing favorites now. I see, of course, you too are choosing Team Harry. Anyway, short story even shorter if Malfoy hadn’t shown up, the whole thing would have taken like three minutes, but I digress. What’s important here that by age 30 Voldemort’s soul is down to 3.125 percent of his original soul, and despite talking about this grand plan to split soul into seven pieces; he must absolutely suck at counting because he actually quits at six. Five items and his original soul. Way to do a job only 857 hundredths of the way, Voldie, because yeah at that point Voldemort takes a little siesta for about 30 years. I don’t know, maybe he’s afraid of more appendages falling off, so there’s no other Horcrux creation until 1981. That’s the moment when Voldemort attacks Harry Potter, and that’s not even intentional Horcrux creation. I don’t think this guy was ever gonna get to seven. By the way, just as a side note anyone else realize that Voldemort is 54 when he attacks Harry? I always just assumed that he was in
like his thirties, and that is still decades before the book. He is literally 70 when we see him returning to power. That is crazy. People give the guy a hard time for looking as rough as he does? Pfff. Come on. If I’m looking like that when I’m 70 then I must’ve had some plastic surgery done because he’s really missing key features of his face. Also worth mentioning, in real life Harry Potter would be almost 40.
Ugghhhh makes me feel sad and old. Regardless, we all know the story, when Harry Potter and Voldemort meet, Voldemort’s spell rebounds and he inadvertently splits his soul again making Harry the unintentional Horcrux. Now, there’s some debate about the actual Horcruxiness of Harry, but in a web interview with J.K. Rowling on the Leaky Cauldron site, she directly confirms that Harry Potter is indeed the last unintentional Horcrux, so for this episode I’m with her. The important part here that when the attack happens Voldemort’s soul splits again. His body basically vaporizes and turns that remaining 1.5625 percent of soul into some kind of weird wafting spirit that later attaches to the back of Professor Quirrell’s head like some sort of face leech. This also means that we’ve pinpointed exactly how much Voldermort is in Harry. Just over 1.5 percent.
Maybe that’s what Harry’s scar really is, just a little soul schmutz on his forehead, ya got a little something, just uhh lick your thumb and a li’l something right there that uhh… Let me just … since you don’t have a mother I have to do it for you. OOOHH that hurts.
So what does all this tell us when the Harry Potter series starts? Well, first that the whole Potter series is predicated on a 1.5 percent soul blob, which does seem to take a little bit away from the gravitas of this series. It also tells us that when Harry’s destroying Horcruxes, some of them matter a whole lot more than others. The very first one that Harry destroys is actually the biggest deal because it contains literally half of Voldermort. Half. Fifty percent. More than any other Horcrux, and way more than Voldemort himself at the end of the series, so in reality, by the end of book 2, Voldermort is mathematically, mostly dead. From there, the Horcruxes go on to be destroyed in pretty much the same order that they were created, effectively knocking out 96.875 percent of Voldemort’s soul before the final movie even begins. Alright, but I hear you remembering your Harry Potter movie trivia and ya’ll see what I’m leaving out here. It’s not the elephant in the room; it’s the SNAKE. Any true Potterite knows that Nagini is also a Horcrux in the series, but one that I haven’t mentioned yet at all. Well here’s why. Nagini was created in 1994, 13 years after his run-in with Harry Potter. During Harry’s fourth year, Nagini becomes Voldermort’s last attempt to split his soul into even more tiny little soul crumbs, but what this means for this series is the really fascinating part because at this point with the creation of the final Horcrux, Voldemort’s soul splits one final time leaving him with only 0.78 percent; less than 1 percent of his original soul, meaning that Nagini has the other 0.78 percent. With so little so left, it’s no wonder that Voldy can’t effectively use the Elder Wand at the end of the series. Yeah, yeah, I know that the actual explanation given in the movies is about disarming the Elder Wand from other Wizards, but that is a whole ‘nother episode unto itself my friends, but what’s even more shocking about this reveal is that it means that Harry Potter himself, starting in the fourth movie and through to the end of series is more
Voldemort than Voldermort. In fact, he’s literally twice the Voldemort Voldermort is! From the fourth movie onward, Tommy Riddle is at 0.78 percent soul. Harry, from his birth is rocking out at 1.5 percent Voldemort, and when you stop to think about it that way the last battles of this series are really anticlimactic. They are literally battling over a villain with a health bar of less than 1 percent. In this epic battle for Hogwarts, the grand evil wizard is just a fraction of a fraction of a fraction, so there you have it. Definitive mathematical proof supported by the author and the lore that Harry Potter is more Voldermort than the actual Voldermort in the Harry Potter series. Makes you look at him a bit differently, huh? Every time ya see Harry on screen you’re literally looking at the largest percent of Dark Lord walking around in the whole series. Oh yea, and if you want one final thing that will completely ruin the way that you look at Harry Potter from here on out, Daniel Radcliffe starred in the broadway production of Equus in which he rides horses around naked, so on have fun Google image searching that one. Put away your wand Harry!

100 thoughts on “Film Theory: Harry Potter, MORE VOLDEMORT than Voldemort!

  1. STOP SAYING….. his name… it’s NOT right….

    But that’s Just A Theory, a FILM THEORY

    aaaaAAAAANNNNDDDDDD cut

  2. If harry is a horcrux then technically Voldemort isn’t dead as one can only be destroyed by basilisk venom which is why harry should be dead in the second film but oh well

  3. 1. Moaning Myrtle's death was an accident.
    2.Voldemort also did make seven horcruxes :
    The Diary
    Marvolo Gaunt's ring
    Hufflepuff's Cup
    Slytherin's locket
    Ravenclaw's Diadem
    His snake Nagini
    The bit of his soul he used to resurrect himself after his original body got blown up when he was trying to kill Harry
    That makes seven (also when he tried to kill Harry he unintentionally made him a Horcrux as well)
    3. Dumbledore explains that however much Voldemort splits his soul his instincts, power and magical abilities remain the same which means that it doesn't matter that Voldemort has 0.2 % soul as long as he has it
    4. It was never said that when someone splits their soul they split it in half, it is just said that they hide "a part" of it in a object
    All this also means that Voldemort has as much "health" as Harry in the last battle
    Just don't make theories like this when you don't even know the context

  4. not usually that guy, but when you said 'Accio' I died inside because it's pronounced 'Achio', not 'Acio'

  5. The problem with this theory is that it does not say anywhere that splitting one’s soul does so in equal pieces. It says it rips the soul, and the spell to make a horcrux takes a piece of that soul. It never says how much, just a piece. It’s like taking pieces of cake. When you cut a cake, you remove a piece; not half, then a quarter, then an eighth, etcetera.

  6. please do a theory on fantastic beasts x harry potter because nagini (cannot spell if u don't know what I mean I mean the snake) is actually a shapeshifting person thing (revealed in fantastic beasts 2) I was wondering if there was any further digging you could do with that 🙂

  7. Yeah but Harry's Horcrux was destroyed in the Philosopher's Stone, so therefore, he does NOT contain more Voldemort than Voldemort.

  8. why would voldemort kill harry if harry was a horcrux? wouldn't he kill himself? or would he get his soul back if he kills harry? i mean the last one is the only sensible thing, right? or just keep cutting your soul into smaller and smaller pieces since why have .2 when .1 is negligible from 100? again, if he kills harry, where's the soul go? it's already cut up; just let your minions do the work..

  9. If you make a horcrux out of a weapon and proceed to kill someone with it, are you able to make a horcrux for your horcrux?

  10. If you ask jk rowling if this is true, she would confirm it and say stuff like dobby is a street working crossdresser and hermoini is a black lama

  11. Voldy should have made his horcrux his nose because then it would disappear forever 😉
    Problem solved
    Immortality achieved

  12. What if Voldemort gains some or all of his soul back when the Horcrux is destroyed? That could explain why he seems to gain more and more power as time goes on. As his horcruxs are destroyed he gets more and more of his soul back. Despite this he hates it because he loses part of his immortality. It is possible that the soul goes back into all the other horcruxes including Harry.

  13. My soul is ♾% so if Voldemort find me then just like a Dementor I literally can’t be killed or die i,m the infinite great grandmother of god so Voldemort would have won so 50% of Voldemort’s soul would be like a ♾th of a % too me so not good when even I can’t get the soul out of me so it’s a good thing that Voldemort never found me at all

  14. God I get it that he is trying to put enthusiasm and shock elements to his voice to sound exclusive but a real potterhead knows all of this and maybe is yawning at every other minute

  15. is harry was a horcrux shouldn't he be 'destroyed' after bit from Basilisk? teeth is a teeh after all, detached or not lol

  16. I think it is only mentioned that a fragment of soul is separated from the original and stored in hocruxes, not exactly half each time. I do not think regular maths would work with something like a soul. Its completely intangible.

  17. I know all of that and i could tell it in 3 mins but u re just blabling too much
    I mean i dont usually do this but LIKE this if u think this guy has bad jokes and is using them too often

  18. doesn't that mean that voldemort is still alive because i don't think harry dies at the end of the last movie so he is

  19. Yeah, but the soal of Voldemort in Harry is separate from him. That does mean that Harry will start acting more Voldemort than Voldemort. After Voldemort hits Harry with the killing curse in the forbidden forest the Horcrux dies because the love protection does not apply to the Horcrux.

  20. Nicholas Flamel was said to have stored some potions made from the philosophers stone to prolong his live "for a while". Why did voldemort never try and go for those? Seemed to do the trick for Nicholas and be the ones that actually prolonged his life, rather than the stone itself.

  21. The Federal Reserve holds a US Debt ton worth of debt in the form of Fed reserve bonds. Raising the interest rates would cause the Feds to pay higher interest rates on their notes causing inflation to raise drastically. Not good.

  22. You are right, it's grapefruit,I'm at Harry Potter and the goblet of fire. I'm righting this on Mon,Aug 19, 9:55 PM

  23. When I first saw the second fantastic beasts for the first time I yelled: HOW IS DUMBLEDOR ALIVEE?
    When I saw how I was like: ohhhh ok I guess

  24. That's too bad, because before the final battle between Harry and Voldemort, Harry decides to sacrifice himself in the Forbidden Forest. He is killed by Voldemort there, thus the part of Voldemort in Harry is also killed. Harry will later be resurrected by the Resurrection Stone for the final confrontation, thus there is no more Voldemort in Harry when the final battle commences!

  25. Theory: Only Harry could have found the necklace because the room of requirement opened that up for him because he had part of Voldemort’s soul

  26. I somehow always knew it wasn't seven equal pieces, ….you know during the time I loved math but thanks to geometry I hate it now even if I got an A in that horrid class

    Sorry for that small rant and thank heavens I've finally graduated high school last school year

  27. Well actually voldy completely destroyed himself for no reason because an average wizard lives for 200 years according to Jk. So that means he had approximately 184-ish years to rule the world. Any that is a lot. Sorry for breaking your heart voldy.
    But there’s a twist. Voldemort wanted to live forever. Why didn’t he just become a ghost and posses people to do his job?? And if you are wondering, I am a potter head. Do Not Judge Me.

  28. Harry Potter doesnt actually have any Voldemort left in him. He had already lost it before the final battle. So no, Harry Potter is no longer more Voldemort than Voldemort.

  29. This isn’t a theory. It’s math. If you argue against it, you wont be creating a theory based on your opinions. You’d just be wrong.

  30. If I were Voldemort, I would have hidden my horcrux in earth. That way you kill me, you kill all possible life.
    And now I'm thinking better objects than earth. Just need a spaceship.

  31. I love all the videos and such, but this theory is based on the fact that a soul is indeed split in half each time. Slughorn says "a part" of your soul when talking to Tom about making a horcrux. I haven't found anywhere else where it specifies half, so this could be the case, but could also just be taking 10% each time leaving Voldy with much more in the end. This would also make sense why he looks disfigured but still mostly human.

  32. awesome dude. awesome dude.
    answer- Hermione.
    A little curiosity. At 8:16 that "Voldy's soul." it was supposed to be an easy find because all of the research albus did. even though we knew what it was we're finding. but where is it we don't know. ok room of requirement is obvious guess. "IF YOU HAVE TO ASK YOU'LL NEVER KNOW, IF YOU KNOW YOU NEED ONLY ASK." at this point he knew wht he was looking for and where. and in room of requirement you need only ask. and the thing popped up right behind you hizzing. Now voldy thought no one will that know that it is a diadem. and if someone comes into the room and asks for voldy's soul it wouldn't come because physically diadem is there not soul. you have to ask for the diadem in order to get to the soul. POTTER HEAD SPOKE. video was awesome though.

  33. This actually makes the final books even more crazy to me if his power actually scales with his soul. Think about how, in one blow, he dismantled the wards around Hogwarts. Think about how much progress his whole army had made to that point… damn
