Daredevil Characters Sorted Into Hogwarts Houses

Everyone belongs to one Hogwarts house or another, and here's where we'd put the main characters from Daredevil.

Daredevil is one of the many amazing Netflix shows that died a premature death due to the Marvel Netflix purge, but thankfully the series at least got three amazing seasons before its tragic cancellation. Daredevil was a very dark and brooding series with a few glimmers of hope sprinkled in throughout the narrative, and its cast of characters seem to either be constantly suffering or constantly causing suffering for others.

On the other hand, Harry Potter is a much lighter and fluffier fictional universe, and even the most despairing moments in the Harry Potter universe still aren't as grim as a lot of what Daredevil has to offer. But if the characters in Daredevil suddenly found themselves thrust into the Harry Potter world, where exactly would they fit in? Or to be more specific, if the Daredevil characters were attending Hogwarts, then what house would they have been sorted into?

10 Vanessa Marianna - Slytherin

Vanessa Marianna is a bit of an enigmatic character, but the very fact that she was drawn to someone like Wilson Fisk is a pretty clear signal that she is a Slytherin at heart. She actually seems to enjoy the ways in which Fisk uses his power for cruelty, and even when she's given the option to look away from his darker sides, she chooses to join him in the dark instead. And the fact that she seems to be so cunning and wily is very Slytherin as well; evidently she has always been a dark person but managed to hide that from the world for most of her life.

9 Ray Nadeem - Hufflepuff

A lot of people who became a part of the FBI like to envision themselves as the hero saving the day, but Ray Nadeem was not the type of person who needed that kind of reassurance and attention. Nadeem was more than happy to be doing his part and had a sincere commitment to doing the right thing, and he just unfortunately found himself way out of his depth when it came to Wilson Fisk and his seemingly endless reach.

However like many Hufflepuffs, Ray also found himself very underestimated by the people who were using and abusing him, which allowed him to achieve his goals in the end (even if he didn't live to see it).

8 Claire Temple - Hufflepuff

Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones

Nurse Claire Temple copes pretty well with being pulled into a lot of crazy situations that she has no control over, and she isn't easily rattled even when dealing with some seriously scary people. Claire's down to earth energy is just the kind of thing that people like Matt Murdock need to balance out their intensity and bring them back to reality, and Claire's masterful ability to go with the flow has Hufflepuff written all over it. Claire might not be the most powerful or extraordinary character on Daredevil, but she serves a very necessary role within the general character dynamic.

7 Benjamin Poindexter - Slytherin

Benjamin Poindexter is kind of a conundrum of a character. Unlike your typical Slytherin, Dex depends on rules and regulations in order to maintain his sanity. But he's also a legitimate sociopath. Dex is someone who has tried to do the right thing for a significant portion of his life, but not because he actually cares about doing the right thing. And when it comes down to the truth of his personality, he ultimately only cares about getting what he wants or protecting the very few people that he shows any regard for. Dex has never fit in anywhere and Slytherin would be no different, but he belongs there nonetheless.

6 Frank Castle - Gryffindor

Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle in Netflix's Daredevil

Frank Castle was an excellent foil to Matt Murdock, because in a lot of ways their characters are two sides of the same coin. They're both heroic in their own ways and amoral in their own ways. And of course, they would both belong in Gryffindor if they attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Frank is a courageous man almost to the point of insanity, and he intends to change the world for the better but his perspective on that is so black and white that it's scary. It seems likely that a Gryffindor education may have tempered those impulses a bit and made Frank into the hero he really should be.

5 Elektra Natchios - Slytherin

Does she come from a wealthy family? Check. Is she insanely elitist and arrogant? Check. Is she devoted to achieving her own ends no matter the cost? Check. And does she assume that the rules that everyone else abides by don't apply to her? Check.

Elektra Natchios is a morally grey character at best, she may not be as evil as some of the other Daredevil alums but she's certainly not a good person. But ultimately morality means almost nothing to Elektra, the only thing that truly matters to her is what she wants and needs, which makes her a Slytherin through and through.

4 Wilson Fisk - Slytherin

Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk in Daredevil Season 3

Wilson Fisk is an especially dangerous villain in the Marvel universe, but it's not because he's wealthy or exceptionally powerful. It's not really because he's extraordinarily intelligent either. I mean, there are other criminals in New York who have those qualities who aren't nearly as frightening as Fisk is, so clearly that can't be what sets him apart. What really makes Fisk such a powerful adversary for Matt Murdock is that he is cunning and utterly ruthless in his pursuit to become the most powerful man in the city. So unsurprisingly, Wilson Fisk is a character who is tailor made to become a student in Slytherin.

3 Karen Page - Ravenclaw

Karen Page played by Deborah Ann Woll in Daredevil season 2

Much like her other two partners at Nelson & Murdock, Karen Page is someone who has had to get by on her wits alone for a very long time. Initially Karen appeared to be the standard damsel in distress who was completely out of her depth when going up against the crime kingpin of New York City, but Karen wound up being more than a formidable adversary to the people who were trying to scapegoat her and bury the evidence.

Karen has a lot of great qualities that make her an exceptional and heroic person, but her cleverness is what really sets her apart.

2 Foggy Nelson - Ravenclaw

Elden Henson as Foggy in Daredevil

It's lucky that Matt hooked up with Foggy so long ago, because while Matt is more than content to be the fists of justice Foggy is more than capable of being the brains. That's not to say that Matt isn't as capable of being smart as Foggy is, he just generally chooses not to be unless Foggy is there to force him to acknowledge the absurdity of some of his decisions. Foggy's strength has always been his ability to outwit his opponent, and the fact that he has managed to even out-think someone as powerful and intelligent as Wilson Fisk just goes to show what a true Ravenclaw he really is.

1 Matt Murdock - Gryffindor

Let's be honest, if you're a superhero and your alter ego name is Daredevil then there is no way on earth you're showing up on the doorstep of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and winding up in any Hogwarts house other than Gryffindor. Matt Murdock has a lot of personal qualities that would allow him to fit right in to any one of the houses in Hogwarts, but Matt's intense need to be the hero means that he really belongs in Gryffindor. He prefers to live life as a lone warrior, but being among a lot of similarly minded people may have benefited him in the long run.
