A lot of debates is going on about who would win, if Harry and Edward got in a fight or duel.
This is understandable since it summerize the whole wizards vs. vampires thing.
I will try to be objective and analize their chances fair.
is, besides his magic, a human. He trains Quidditch and he is not exactly out of form, but he just doesn`t have what it takes to break trees in half and stop rushing cars. He can die because of wounds.
on the other hand, is incredebly strong and fast (and cold and never eats and we all know what he is - a vampire). He CAN break trees in half and
stop rushing cars. In order to die, he has to be ripped apart and set alight.
In wresling, Harry wouldn`t stand a chance. No 1 goes to Edward.
2.Mind reading and Oclummency
I already explained that in answer to Opinion Question about Occlumency (involving edward v.s. Harry)
Both HP and Twilight fans provided very good arguments, but I personaly go with the idea that Edward wouldn`t understand spells even if he could read Harry`s mind.
Lets call it tie.
Vampires don`t know spells. They can`t do magic. Like any magic at all. If they wavt to kill they have to stand next to victims. Which is realy hard, it "pray" keeps shoting curses at them and Apparating.
If the informations are corect (link
, Meyer thinks Edward can get out of way of spells. This actualy makes sense, since even wizards in HP have time to deffend themselfs after being attacked. But how could Edward sprinted towards Harry and
kept bowing to spells? Sooner or later he would be hit by a curse and spells can rip things apart and burn them, Edward could be killed.
Edward is able to kill Harry if he jumps on him from the bushes or suddenly drive over him with his silver Volvo (after
stallking him for some time), but in a duel or at least a fair, face to face fight, Edward would pretty much loose all his advantage.
