10 quotes that prove Ron is a Hufflepuff
Throughout the Harry potter movies, Ron Weasley is one of the most charming characters. Between his ability to make anyone laugh or cry, there is certainly more than meets the eye for Ron, and longtime fans of Harry potter would agree. When Ron is dispatched to Gryffindor, it’s done because the Sorting Hat recognizes him as a Weasley and says, “I know exactly where to put you… Gryffindor!” So, there wasn’t much thought to Ron’s sorting out of Gryffindor other than his bloodline.
Looking at Hufflepuff as a whole, they are known to have a strong sense of fairness, loyalty, patience, and hardworking. They are also known to be kind, almost to the point. On the surface Ron may not seem like all of these things, but he arguably looks a lot more like a Hufflepuff than a Gryffindor, whose hallmarks are bravery and chivalry. And while Ron can show great courage at times, Hufflepuff might be a better fit for him.
When he iconically tells Harry how it’s got to be
“Harry, you have to go on, I know that.” Not me, not Hermione, you.
From the start of Harry potter and the the sorcerer’s stone, Ron makes a difficult decision and tells Harry how they are going to get to the end of the life-size chess game. It’s a time when we see Ron showing extreme loyalty and patience. He sacrifices himself to keep The Chosen One going because he knows that’s what he needs to do.
It also shows that he has a strong sense of justice and must sacrifice himself for Harry to live. While it could be argued that it is Ron who is brave, and he is, the main determining factor of his bravery is his loyalty to Harry.
When he is afraid of animals with three hairy heads
“I wasn’t looking at his feet! I was a little preoccupied with his heads… or maybe you didn’t notice? There were three!
It’s one of those times when it’s clear Ron is anything but a Gryffindor. Due to his fear of furry animals, he gets distracted and doesn’t notice anything someone else might (like a Ravenclaw).
Here he’s anything but brave, courageous, or even chivalrous, and he’s showing that he doesn’t belong to Ravenclaw, Slytherin, or Gryffindor because he doesn’t have any of their traits. So what does that leave? Hufflepuff.
When he’s afraid of furry eight-legged animals
“Why the spiders? Why couldn’t it be “Follow the butterflies?” “? “
Another moment where audiences see Ron absolutely terrified of a furry animal is in this quote. This is a time, again, where rather than outright proving Ron to be a Hufflepuff, it shows that he can only be a Hufflepuff through the process of elimination.
In this quote, he’s not brave, ambitious, or deeply intellectual – he just doesn’t want to follow spiders. But, what’s extremely Hufflepuff about this quote is that despite his fear, due to his loyalty to Harry, he will follow the spiders anyway. Like a real Hufflepuff, although he is terrified, he will do anything for those he loves.
Her response to her dressing gowns
“Traditional? They are old! I look like my great aunt Tessie! [sniffs armpit] Smell like my great aunt Tessie! “
It’s one of Ron’s most famous quotes and lives on today in memes and on TikTok. It’s a time when Ron’s strong sense of justice comes through. He thinks he doesn’t deserve to be humiliated because of his used dresses which somehow look like a dress.
However, he will absolutely wear the dresses because his mother gave them to him and his loyalty to her. He also knows how hard his mom and dad are working and that it’s not their fault that they can’t afford something nicer. So, in Hufflepuff fashion, he bravely wears the robes anyway.
When he tells Hermione that she’s scary but bright
“You are a little scary sometimes, you know that? Awesome … but scary.”
Another time Ron acts like anything but a Gryffindor is when he’s a little scared of Hermione for being so bright. Rather than being enthused by her intelligence or willing to bravely fight with her, he’s scared, something a little more in line with what a Hufflepuff would feel.
While Ron isn’t always nice, this is a time when you can feel like he’s trying to be nice right now, in his own way. That’s actually a compliment, and while Ron doesn’t have his spell and wand skills, it’s good to know that when the going gets tough, he’ll always be on the sidelines, ready to cheer on Harry and Hermione.
When he expresses his disgust for Draco and Blaise
“If we die for them, Harry, I will kill you!”
In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, Ron, Harry and Hermione meet in the Room of Requirement, trying to find one of the last Horcruxes. While doing so, they meet Draco, Blaise, and Goyle, who are there to stop them from doing it.
After Goyle has already died from the fire he created, Draco and Blaise attempt to climb to the top of a mound of chairs to escape it. Ron is not too happy. His keen sense of justice emerges, making him want not to save them, but his loyalty to Harry outweighs that desire, and he saves them anyway.
When he comes back on Malfoy, but it turns on him
“You’re going to pay for that one, Malfoy!” Eat slugs!
Ron attempts to put a slug spell on Draco Malfoy for The Chamber of Secrets movie, but because his wand is broken, it turns on him and curses him. It’s another moment where Ron Hufflepuff’s sense of justice comes through.
Rather than having a teacher and waiting for them to deal with Draco, he takes matters into his own hands and, due to his loyalty to Harry, stands up for him. Even though it backfires on him, it’s yet another moment that proves Ron is a Hufflepuff.
When he’s under the spell of a powerful love potion
“It’s beautiful, isn’t it? The moon.”
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, a movie full of hilarious quotes from scenes like these, Ron accidentally eats chocolates meant for Harry and ends up under a powerful love potion.
By doing this, the audience sees that Ron’s kind and unsuspecting nature has turned on him again, and he is getting into more trouble than he could have imagined. Fortunately, Harry, being the real Gryffindor that he is, comes to the rescue and saves his unsuspecting friend.
When he warns Hermione about Crookshanks
“I’m warning you, Hermione!” Keep that damn beast away from Crustard or I’ll turn it into cozy tea!
The still eloquent speaker, Ron yells at Hermione in The prisoner of Azkaban to keep his cat away from the Croutards. All because Ron doesn’t realize that his extremely old rat is actually a Death Eater who betrayed his best friend’s parents.
In this, her loyalty guides her actions, and although she generally helps Ron make some of his best decisions in Azkaban, he’s not particularly nice to Hermione right now. But he defends his rat, Crustard, and stays true to the one he’s known the longest, in this case, a rat.
When he agrees with Professor McGonagall
“Believe me, professor. I have been asking myself the same question for six years.
Ron delivers this quote in response to a question from Professor McGonagall, who asks the Golden Trio, “Why is it always the three of you?” Here it is clear that Ron doesn’t want to be the center of attention and he doesn’t want to be a fearless Gryffindor who is constantly in trouble.
Sometimes he just wants to hang out with his best friends and eat some candy. But fate has other ideas and his loyalty to the Golden Trio is what drives him, making it clear that Ron is most definitely a Hufflepuff.
