Harry PotterWelcome to MTV's Harry Potter World Cup! We've selected 64 of the best "Harry Potter" characters and matched them up in a series of duels for a chance at magical glory, but it's up to YOU to decide who the greatest "Potter" character of all time is in this pool of wizards and witches. Will the Death Eaters destroy Hogwarts, or will good triumph over evil? In the end, the choice is yours, so keep voting at MTV Movies Blog and make your voice heard!

Sirius Black had no trouble defeating former Auror and onetime Minister for Magic Rufus Scrimgeour in the first round of the Harry Potter World Cup, but how will the Prisoner of Azkaban fare when facing his own kin on the playing field? We'll find out shortly, as Sirius and Tonks prepare for their duel in the Diagon Alley division's second round.

Voting for all second round match-ups will close on Friday, July 1 at 12:01 AM EST, which is only a few hours away — you're running out of time to vote, so get to those polls now! You can follow all of the duels right here.

(3) Sirius Black vs. (6) Nymphadora Tonks
Though this duel isn't quite as cruel as the ongoing battles between George and Ginny and Fred and Arthur, it's still difficult to watch cousins Sirius and Tonks contend with one another. Both are powerful magicians with strong spirits and good hearts, but only one of these two Dumbledore loyalists can advance to the Sweet 16 — and you can count on both of them to fight for that right with all of their might.

As Molly Weasley walks away from the defeated Aragog and Bellatrix Lestrange casts the destroyed Cho Chang aside, these two witches are finally approaching one another on the battlefield in what's surely one of the most anticipated duels in the entire Harry Potter World Cup. We know how this one went down in the books, folks, but this isn't the books — this is the the Diagon Alley division of the World Cup, and anything is possible in this round.

(4) Bellatrix Lestrange vs. (5) Molly Weasley
Certainly, Molly has motivation on her side, and that was a powerful enough tool to help her destroy Voldemort's most wicked witch once before. But Bellatrix has some new tricks up her sleeve — namely, fan support. Will the Death Eater's fans, of which there are many, come out en masse to rewrite history? Or will Molly earn her vengeance against Bellatrix for a second time?

It's the final day of the Harry Potter World Cup's second round, so there's not a moment to waste as we dive straight into the first Diagon Alley division duel of the day. Up first is Draco Malfoy, the wizard favored to win his division, against Triwizard Tournament veteran Fleur Delacour, who narrowly beat former rival Viktor Krum in the first round of the tournament.

(1) Draco Malfoy vs. (9) Fleur Delacour
It was a no-brainer that Draco Malfoy would find his way into the second round of the Harry Potter World Cup... right? Maybe not. Not after Peeves the Poltergeist, a mischievous ghoul who only appears in the "Potter" books and not the movies, managed to steal 30% of the vote away from Draco in round one. The Slytherin student needs to dig much deeper if he's to stand a chance against Fleur, who demonstrated some serious tenacity in her duel against Viktor. There's a reason that Delacour was selected for the Triwizard Tournament, after all; perhaps her strong heart and spirit will be enough to topple Diagon Alley's first-seeded competitor.

Oh, Harry Potter World Cup — why do you have to be so cruel? It was easy enough for Lily Potter and Rubeus Hagrid to beat their first round opponents and advance to the next phase of the Hogsmeade division, but now that they're up against each other, how are two of the most cherished people in Harry Potter's life supposed to compete? Simply, I suppose: they have no choice!

(2) Rubeus Hagrid vs. (7) Lily Potter
Love hurts. Just ask Lily Potter, who laid down her life to prevent the Dark Lord from killing her infant son at the tail end of the First Wizarding World. But Hogwarts groundskeeper Hagrid knows a thing or two about the pain of love as well, not just through his brotherhood with Grawp or animal companions Buckbeak and the late Aragog, but also through Harry, the young wizard that he watched over and brought into the Hogwarts fold in the first place. It's a shame that both Hagrid and Lily can't move onto the next round of the World Cup, but hearts are destined to break in this duel, no matter the outcome.

So, here we are. It's perhaps the most highly anticipated and deeply dreaded duel not just of the Hogsmeade division, but of the entire Harry Potter World Cup as it stands: Cedric Diggory versus Narcissa Malfoy. Let's just take a deep breath and dive straight into it, shall we?

Voting for all second round match-ups will close on Friday, July 1 at 12:01 AM EST, so make sure to start voting now. You can follow all of the duels right here.

(3) Cedric Diggory vs. (11) Narcissa Malfoy
What happened to Luna Lovegood? Whether she was defeated by pro-Cedric voters putting their support behind Narcissa or on Narcissa's own merit is still a question that's very much up in the air. The conspiracy, as it were, remains unsolved. But there's little time left to mourn Luna's loss. With voting ending in less than 36 hours, the duel between the late Hufflepuff hero and the Malfoy matriarch is bound to be intense. Will Narcissa's potentially plentiful fan base come out and decimate Cedric? Or will a landslide victory for the deceased Diggory answer the lingering mystery of Luna's defeat once and for all? It's up to you, voters -- personally speaking, I am very curious to see how this duel plays out.

Because there are so many questions surrounding this latest duel, we reached out to our regular stable of World Cup experts (plus special guest Laura Cristiano from Twilight Lexicon) to weigh in on what we've dubbed The Cedric Factor. See what they think about last week's battle and the current match in the video below.

Poor Arthur Weasley. He already fought and defeated one of his many children, Percy, in the last round of the Harry Potter World Cup. And now as he enters round two of the Hogsmeade division, he once again finds himself wand to wand against a fellow Weasley — and this time, his victory won't come so easily.

(4) Fred Weasley vs. (5) Arthur Weasley
Arthur has several things going for him: he has experience, he works for the Ministry of Magic, he's a father figure to just about everybody… but does any of that matter when he's up against Fred? The Weasley twins are two of the most popular characters in all of "Potter," and given the way that things work out for Fred in "Deathly Hallows Part 2," fan support could well be on his side. Again, as is the case in George versus Ginny, it's an ugly throwdown between two beloved characters… but only one of these Weasleys can advance to the Sweet 16.

We're halfway through the second round of the Harry Potter World Cup, and we've already seen several ugly duels between old foes and dear friends. Today's no different as we launch back into the Hogsmeade division with Harry's best friend, Ron Weasley, going up against Harry's Quidditch mentor, Oliver Wood. Another duel that's far from easy to decide, but as always, the ultimate choice is in your hands.

Voting for all second round match-ups will close on Friday, July 1 at 12:01 AM EST, so make sure to start voting now. You can follow all of the duels right here.

(1) Ron Weasley vs. (8) Oliver Wood
For the casual "Potter" fan, this duel seems to be a no-brainer: Ron, after all, is Harry's very best friend, his truest ally through thick and through thin. How could he lose against a relatively low-level name like Oliver Wood? Well, let's just say that several "Potter" fans think that Oliver, the onetime captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team at Hogwarts, is a babe. That's a bit of an understatement. Will Oliver's good looks win out over Ron's loyalty to Harry? There's only one way to find out — by voting!

We were this close to seeing another historic duel between longtime rivals Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald, but the second-greatest dark wizard of all time proved no match for wand master Ollivander by the end of the Harry Potter World Cup's first round. With one victory already under his belt, can Ollivander pull off another upset to defeat the beloved Hogwarts headmaster in this second round of the Godric's Hollow division?

(2) Albus Dumbledore vs. (10) Mr. Ollivander
There's no question that Ollivander knows his way around a wand, but when it comes to spell-casting and wizarding accomplishments, he pales in comparison to the esteemed Professor Dumbledore. Simply put, Albus is one of, if not the greatest wizard the world has ever seen. Combine his natural skill set with his popularity in the "Potter" fan community and the outcome seems predetermined. Then again, I would have thought the same of Gellert Grindelwald last round. Ollivander could have some surprises up his sleeve...

As Remus Lupin always says, chocolate makes things better. But chocolate won't help him in his next match in the Godric's Hollow division, where he finds himself dueling against Hedwig, the beloved pet owl of Harry Potter himself. Make no mistake: the former Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher — who, as I already confessed, is my personal favorite character — has a deceivingly difficult opponent standing between him and the World Cup right here in round two.

(3) Remus Lupin vs. (6) Hedwig
How can a werewolf lose to an owl, you ask? Well, when you have a creature as cunning and adored as Hedwig, it's actually easier than you think. Hedwig had no trouble destroying Gryffindor wizard-in-training Seamus Finnigan in round one, but then again, Seamus is no Remus Lupin. The longtime member of the Order is as capable as they come, and one could argue that he has just as many fans as Hedwig does. Even still, it's no easy task choosing between these two — consider this one of the most contentious round two matches of them all.

The Godric's Hollow division of the Harry Potter World Cup just gets harder and harder with every subsequent duel. This isn't the first (or the last) time we've seen two Weasleys going up against each other… but Ginny versus George? How do you choose between Harry's girlfriend and one of the Weasley twins? You don't have a lot of time to decide, so better start figuring it out!

(4) George Weasley vs. (5) Ginny Weasley
For the second time in the Harry Potter World Cup, it's Weasley versus Weasley. But this isn't as easy as Arthur versus Percy — these are both beloved characters we're talking about here. There's a lot of love between George and Ginny, but both brother and sister know that only one of them can take home the World Cup. Now the choice is yours… which Weasley makes it to the Sweet 16?
