    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!

    Think of a parallel universe where Neville is the chose and the one everyone associate with the boy who lived and Harry Potter is just the character who never gets attention in anything more than being the unlucky boy.
    Think how weird that world would’ve been

    When it’s broken down EVEN more we see that instead of Voldemort making the choice it was J.K. Rowling who chose to make Harry the CO. Maybe, just maybe, Voldemort was working for J.K. Rowling the whole time. Dun Dun Dunnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

    I agree with this theory but it was actually Dobby who gave Harry gillyweed in the books. It would probably take too much time to have Dobby do it.

    Sorry but Harry is Half blood and neville is pure blood sooo you know the dark Lord doesn’t like half blood that Much so he tried to kill the half blood 🤓

  • Katherine Earheart
    Katherine Earheart 16 days ago

    Sorry MatPat, but your theory won't work. Ever wonder how Lily was the only mom that embedded her love into the child's skin? It's because Voldemort gave Lily an option to move aside before he killed Harry. This is because Snape begged Voldemort to let Lilly live, and, for some reason, Voldemort complied. Alice Longbottom would not have been given the option to stand aside. He didn't hesitate to kill anyone else, why her? SO, if Voldemort would've chosen to go after the Longbottoms, he would've done much better.
    Also, isn't it ironic that Voldemort went after the Half-Blood, like himself, instead of the Pureblood?
    I honestly knew this theory from the SuperCarlinBrothers, so if you want to see the proof from this, check out their channel.
    Love your channel MatPat! I'm a loyal sub! :D

    Dude, MatPat. This is CANON, specifically stated in the books, that Neville could just as easily been the chosen one. Not to mention that these books are amazing and you keep on saying demeaning comments about it. Yes, it has some clique themes and such, but the way they are presented makes it not clique, if that makes sense. Every good story has an element that is clique because it is literally impossible to avoid with the millions of books out there.

  • Skye Walther

    I was about to rage when it looked like your theory was soley based on the movie. I recently reread the books and I knew that the prophecy could've gone either way, and that this theory was unorigional. But the part in the end where you proved they were actually both the chosen one and both played that role made up for the rage.
