    Maybe I missed it but I think the one flaw in this theory is the assumption that Voldy's soul was split in half each time. "Split" could be a vague fraction of the original. I always assumed each horcrux held an amount of the soul equal to the amount of "emotion" that was felt during the murder, which is probably what Rowling's original idea was meant to convey.

    1:25 btw it is grapefruit. They had a insane diet at the Dursley’s because Dudley could fit into his school uniform.

    No I think that the 7th horcrux was the most powerful even though I it makes sense that the amount of soul left in Voldemort was so little. Imagine how much harder Voldy would have been kill if his health bar was not less than 1%?

    I think he hid the Diadem in the Room of Requirement because he felt other students would not be able to actually know how to intentionally activate the room.

    Voldemort had the sword of Gryffindor the night he attacked Harry and intended to use Harry's death to make his next horcrux. You should really read the books. It never says the soul is split on half, just that it's a piece. Probably much more than half remains in the body--supported by the fact that Harry feels a greater connection to Voldemort than to the horcruxes and is only connected to Nagini when Voldemort is possessing her. Also, soul doesn't mean power--Voldemort would have never split his soul if it would detract from his power. Does the movie even say that Draco Malfoy was the true master of the Elder Wand? I hate that they cut out the entire explanation where Harry explains to Voldemort the succession of masters after Dumbledore and tells him to have remorse--remorse heals a divided soul and is the only way to retrieve the soul from the horcrux without destroying the object and killing the soul.

    Besides the comments about the soul not splitting evenly, what’s to say that the soul doesn’t grow back or heal over time? Perhaps those years spent not making #7 was him recovering back up to full capacity.

    I don't think percentages matter that much when it comes to souls. He's still immortal with just one horcrux, so it's not that the dairy is more important to kill off than the cup or Harry's itsy bitsy bit of soul. Also, having less soul leaves you with the same amount of magical power, so yeah, the important part is still there.

    How could Harry be the master of the elder wand when he didn’t steal the elder wand from Malfoy, but he stole his original wand? Wouldn’t that make Harry the master of that wand and not the Elder wand? I know Draco disarmed Dumbledore in the astronomy tower so Draco technically is the master of the elder wand by default. But Draco never had the Elder wand in his possession for Harry to steal. So I feel like this is a huge plot hole.

    I just assumed that Voldemort never truly understood how the room of requirement works. He was so arrogant that he thought only he was smart enough to find it. To him it was just a magic room that bent to his will. The room of requirement obeys the person who is in it at that time. The moment they leave everything can be undone by the next person that enters.

    You're missing the fact that, as the "real slim shady," Harry should be reabsorbing the Souldemort once the balance is tipped, as the horcruxes should acknowledge Harry's sincere regret for their existence.

    This wasn't clear to anywone? It was the MOST obvious thing ever since we learned about Harrys and Voldemorts mind-link...I mean what did you expect happend there exactly?
    Edit: also Harry is apparently able to hold his own during any connection...if sometimes only barrely. So an untrained, underage wizard is duking it out in his own mind with one of the most powerful wizards of his time and WINS? Makes total sense that Harry is more Voldemort, then Voldemort himself!

    I enjoy a lot of your theories, but this one is truly garbage. It's obvious you have never read the books because you don't include hardly ANY information from them; you're looking at the solely the movies with the exception of a few scraps of information from pottermore. There's literally nothing in the books suggesting splitting your soul splits it in half. It clearly states that creating a horcrux embeds "a piece" of your soul into the object. In fact, it's often times implied that this "piece" of your soul is only a small portion of it, leaving you with the vast majority of your soul still inside your body. You then talk about Voldemort's physically appearance degrading as if it is tied to the degradation of his soul, when it is in fact completely unrelated. When he attempts to murder the infant Harry, his soul is torn from his physically form (which is destroyed completely), and a portion of this soul is embedded in Harry, making Harry himself a horcrux. This is stated EXPLICITLY in the books. You don't need to rely on anything J.K. Rowling says IRL. It's right there in the pages of the story. Getting back to the remaining portion of Voldemort's soul (which is probably at least 50% of his original soul, and likely much greater. Not at all the 1.5625% that you claim), it basically wonders around without any physical vessel at all until it takes refuge in Professor Quirrell. This is plainly spelled out in THE FIRST BOOK. When Quirrell is defeated, Voldemort's soul escapes to again wonder without physical form. That is, until Peter Pettigrew performs a ritual in the fourth novel in which he drops Tom Riddle Sr.'s bone, some of Harry's blood, and his own severed hand into a large cauldron; it is at this point that Voldemort regains a physical body that is purely his own. This body is at first a small, grotesque form that resembles some kind of half snake-half human infant...which can talk. Eventually he "grows" into what you see depicted in the later films. You are of course the Film Theorist, so maybe I can forgive you completely ignoring the novels. HOWEVER, after watching your Lord of The Rings theories where you delve deep, deeep into the original written (even unpublished) material of J.R.R. and Christopher Tolkien, I cannot forgive you of the crimes you commit in this video. Shame on you.

That’s like, minimum ten years of your life that was composed of much more than just the Harry Potter books or any other obligatory movie/book/tv show that you’ve experienced. And yet we expect it to be ruined by a tv reboot or a fifteen minute TVclip video that probably isn’t true

    Number magic= Arithmancy. A class Hermione took because she's smart. The movies left it out though. But, I'm after something else. I think that you may have made a very critical mistake, Matpat. I might be wrong, but I'd like to know where you're getting the whole "Horcruxes= split your soul IN HALF." Because to my knowledge, neither the books nor the movies specify this fact; that when splitting one's soul, it takes HALF of their soul to put into the object. Could it not be thirds, quarters, even a tenth of their soul instead? We are given that no wizard apart from Voldemort has ever split their soul into more than two, which some might interpret as half (and so hypothetically you might be right.) However, it's also possible that the soul redistributes itself according to the number of people one kills. Or, this might also be interpreted as the two parts of one's soul not being equal. I could be missing something of course, and the movies (which I pay less attention to) are often different from the book material, but I'd much like to know the source for this deduction.

  • Kitten Chaos5
    Kitten Chaos5 15 days ago +5

    Ok so while I really want to believe this, I see a couple of flaws. 1) I could definitely be wrong but I’m pretty sure in the book he says ‘part’ of the soul is kept in the horocrux, not necessarily that it’s divided in half each time. 2) the horocrux inside Harry is destroyed when Harry “dies”, meaning that during the final battle Harry is just Harry again, and assuming we’re going with splitting the soul in half each time, old Voldy still has that .78%.
    Ok sorry that was a long explanation

    This is fun, but it doesn’t work. Just because Voldemort’s soul is spilt, doesn’t mean those parts of his soul are cut off from the rest of his soul. Which is why destroying a horcrux weakens him.
