Characters In Hogwarts Houses:

 201 terlwyth, Tue, 21st Feb '12 8:40:31 AM from Berzerkeley, Kalifornien Relationship Status: Not war
The gravestone has been stolen
YuYu Hakusho

Yusuke: Gryffindor (a darker example of course)

Kurama: Ravenclaw

Hiei: Slytherin

Kuwabara: Gryffindor

Keiko: Hufflepuff

Botan: Hufflepuff

Koenma: Hufflepuff

Elder Toguro: Slytherin

Younger Toguro: Slytherin

Karasu: Ravenclaw

Bui: Not sure

Sensui: Ravenclaw (dark example again)

Itsuki: Hufflepuff

Raizen: Gryffindor

Mukuro: Not sure

Yomi: Slytherin

Jin: Gryffindor

Chu: Gryffindor

Touya: Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff

Suzuki: Not sure

Shishiwakamaru: Slytherin

Rinku: Hufflepuff

Genkai: Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff

[down] Nah Gryffindor is the whole, "I'm gonna do bold, heroic stuff" house. Genkai keeps saying she's the kind of person perfectly happy with simply just having powers and not going out the way, sounds more like Hufflepuff than Gryffindor to me. Touya is The Smart Guy and definitely a strategist so I wouldn't count out Ravenclaw

I'd definitely put Kuwabara in Gryffindor - he's much more driven by extreme lionheartedness than even Yusuke. Hell, Bravery and Chivalry might sum up nearly all of his actions.

As for some of the others:
  • I'd put Anime! Keiko in Hufflepuff (as there her loyalty and goodwill is given much more attention) and Manga! Keiko in Gryffindor (as there those traits are more used as fuel for her more brave traits).
  • Touya I would put in Hufflepuff, not Ravenclaw, as his personality seems more pivoted around honor than intellect.
  • Shishiwakamaru is so Slytherin it's insane.
  • I might make the case of Sensui being an evil Gryffindor rather than a Ravenclaw, given his motives and his personality.
  • I'd put Genkai somewhere between Ravenclaw and Gryffindor rather than Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff - despite appreciating the value of work she doesn't quite seem much Hufflepuff at heart. She reminds me of Mc Gonagall, actually - intelligent, witty and decisive, but driven by bravery and sheer force of will.

They never travel alone.
I think we have to look at the difference between how a character acts, and what they actually want. I mean in Discworld for example, we have Cohen the Barbarian, whose, while more-or-less totally selfish (Slytherin), goes about his life facing the biggest foes he can find (Gryffindor), Likewise, Rincewind is pretty much a Slytherin at heart, but goes about it in a way which is anything but Slytherin. OTOH, Granny Weatherwax aims for Hufflepuff, more-or-less, goes about it in a way that sits somewhere between Slytherin and Ravenclaw. In fact, there are very few characters I'd place in one single House, Although Ponder Stibbons I would, he starts out Slytherin, quickly changes to Ravenclaw, and in his latest book appears to have moved onto Hufflepuff.

It's less how they act, and more what truly drives them. I think I might've brought that distinction up earlier when disputing where someone put someone.

I think it was Luke Skywalker, where someone brought up that he was brave and ambitious and I argued that both of those were influenced and formed by the fact that his major drive is his sense of idealism, his overwhelming conviction and a desire to bring the goodness and justice he sees to others. My case was that in the end while he has qualities of many of the houses he uses those out of his most driving trait - his idealism. So... Hufflepuff.

Another might be Hermione, for instance. Intelligent and always with the desire to prove herself, but that's more tied to how she is seemingly driven by a desire to act and be able to do what she can when needed, and thus to be able to know what she might need to do when the time comes for her to need to do them. Kind of a valorous studiousness.

 206 Hamburger Time, Fri, 23rd Mar '12 10:42:51 AM from Right behind you
Revenge of the Lemurs
Let's try ER:

  • Mark: Hufflepuff leaning to Ravenclaw. He's highly intelligent, but his main motive is idealism and he's more loyal to the establishment than most other characters. Briefly became a Marauder-style jackass Gryffindor in season 4.
  • Doug: Gryffindor, bar none.
  • Carter: Gryffindor leaning to Hufflepuff.
  • Carol: Tough one. She's humble and loyal, suggesting Hufflepuff, but she's also willing to break the rules for worthy causes, suggesting Gryffindor. When she does that, though, it's usually out of loyalty to Doug, so Hufflepuff it is.
  • Susan: Hufflepuff.
  • Peter: Slytherin leaning to Gryffindor. His motive is furthering and challenging himself, but he does it in a very boisterous, Gryffindor-ish way.
  • Kerry: This is a toughie. She screams Slytherin at first, but she's also unflinchingly loyal to the establishment (in a similar way to Umbridge though not nearly as bad, and yes, I still think Umbridge was a Hufflepuff) and realizies her ambitions using her intelligence. It's really up in the air.
  • Luka: Gryffindor, and he becomes the jackass sort a couple times.
  • Romano: Slytherin.
I haven't read through all nine pages, but I'm fairly certain no one's mentioned The A-Team yet (correct me if I'm wrong), so here's what I've got (this is for the TV show, although I guess it's the same for the movie).

Hannibal: Witty, wise, brilliant - he'd be a Ravenclaw for sure.

B.A.: Brave, noble, strong - Gryffindor all the way.

Murdock: Overly silly at times (most of the time, actually), but loyal, hardworking, usually patient, and he has surprising hidden depths - he's gotta be a Hufflepuff.

Face: Clever, cunning, fast-talking con man - definitely Slytherin.

Re-sorting canon!Potterverse characters is allowed? I think Methods did that best. Personal opinion and all that sort of thing.

For my list?

Final Fantasy VII would form it best, I submit, for your perusal:

  • Cloud Strife - House Gryffindor. Chronic hero syndrome, Genius Bruiser (how else would you allow for breeding Gold Chocobos so he could get the Knights of the Round Summon spell?)

  • Cait Sithe - House Slytherin. Persistent plans, plots and betrayals more than outweigh the Heroic Sacrifice, which is Subverted anyway. since he doesn't actually sacrifice himself, just one of his big cat exoskeletons, sort of like what the Eleventh Doctor did

  • Aeris Gainsborough - House Hufflepuff. Ferociously loyal, hard-working (supports her family through flower selling before you meet her, is one of the best healers until you lose her.

  • Tifa Lockhart - House Ravenclaw. One of the leaders of AVALANCHE. Also a Genius Bruiser, like Cloud, but with less of the Chronic Hero Syndrome. Capable plotter, and manages to be Last Girl Standing when it comes to being Cloud's Love Interest.

  • Vincent Valentine - House Ravenclaw. Very dark character yet willing to put his un-life on the line for his friends. Outwits Hojo, eventually.

  • Red XIII - House Gryffindor. (helps his colours are that of the House, yes?) Has several Big Damn Hero moments.

  • Cid Highwind: House Gryffindor. Ace Pilot, Genius Bruiser.

  • Barrett Wallace - House Slytherin. Just look at what he does. Killing vast amounts of innocent people is hardly what you would expect if I made the seemingly obvious thing and put him in House Gryffindor, but that is exactly what he does when he blows up all those Mako Reactors. Very ambitious.

and finally, and most controversially:

  • Sephiroth. - House Gryffindor. What? He is the hero of his own story, and he is ready, willing and able to make sure that events go his way, by violence if necessary. Remind you of anyone?

^ Being good is not a prerequisite for being Gryffindor - it's only a prerequisite for Hufflepuff. Likewise, evil is not intrinsic or necessarily indicative of Slytherin.

[up]Yeah, I know, but I was shooting more for the Houses as described in Methods of Rationality rather than canon!Hogwarts. From memory, wannabe heroes in Gryffindor, evil kids in Slytherin and everyone who does the actual work in Hufflepuff.

And I really couldn't do anything other than put Cloud and Sephiroth in Gryffindor.

For Sensui, it depends very much on WHICH Sensui you're talkinga bout.

Minoru, who is the Sensui we see for pretty much all of Chapter Black, is a definite Slytherin.

Shinobu is the Gryffindor.

You could be a villainous Hufflepuff, if you were equal-opportunity evil and unfailingly loyal to an evil leader.

Would anyone be willing to do Final Fantasy VIII ? The main cast is still in school even so it works.

I wanna know what house Seifer would be in.

^^ IIRC, one of Hufflepuff's given traits was good-heartedness. It's pretty much the only House with "good" in its general description.

Granted, while typing that I still thought of a perfect evil Hufflepuff: Hank Scorpio. Nice, wise, and accepting guy who's also bent on world domination.

And a kickass theme song, though that's not a House requirement (maybe it should be).

[up]Eh, Hufflepuff's traits, per Word of Sorting Hat, amounted to "accepting of all, " "loyal" and "hard-working." Good-hearted described Hufflepuff herself, in the same way Godric Gryffindor may have been a Knight in Shining Armor that put King Arthur to shame, but not indicative of every individual Hufflepuff. I mean, Zacharias Smith is a Hufflepuff and he's a complete and utter tool.

@ Tam: Might I ask, why are you identifying yourself as a Slytherin? Surely your commitment to fairness for all Wizards is more of a Hufflepuff trait, no?

Fresh For 2014
^^ Over the course of the series we see a lot of characters who don't embody the houses they're in.

As for "goodhearted, " I suppose I extrapolated that from their established traits of nobility, honor (from the description of Cedric that claims those trains make him a quintessential Hufflepuff) and/or fairness (from the Sorting Hat).

It's funny Methods of Rationality gets mentioned, because half the time, Mo R!Harry just sounds like an insufferable tool. Canon!Harry might be an idiot, but at least he's more likeable, more or less.

EDIT: Let's try some more.

Mass Effect
  • Shepard: Gryffindor (chivalrous if Paragon, asshole if Renegade), though Renegade edges towards Slytherin, especially in the ending to 1. Either way, though, fighting what Shepard fights takes balls of steel.
  • Kaidan: Hufflepuff. Resident Nice Guy
  • Ashley: Gryffindor. Career soldier, all about the Alliance, might be a Noble Bigot, but will never support racist terrorists.
  • Garrus: Gryffindor
  • Tali: Ravenclaw
  • Liara: Ravenclaw
  • Wrex: Slytherin, the good kind. He has high ambitions for Tuchanka.
  • Jacob: Hufflepuff. Resident Only Sane Man
  • Miranda: Ravenclaw. Smart enough to bring someone back to life.
  • Mordin: Ravenclaw. He's a scientist salarian.
  • Zaeed: Slytherin. Bounty hunter, mercenary.
  • Kasumi: Slytherin. Thief.
  • Samara: Gryffindor, in a really, really Knight Templar way. She'd give her life to save the innocent, but would butcher the guilty without a second thought.
  • Legion: Hufflepuff. He's building a consensus.
  • Morinth: Slytherin in the most evil way possible. All about self-preservation.
  • Grunt: Gryffindor, the blood knight kind.
  • Jack: Slytherin.
  • James: Gryffindor. A natural fit for a career soldier.
  • Javik: Slytherin. He's completely unfettered and obsessed with vengeance, and makes Renegade Shepard look like a boy scout. He's got a keen tactical mind, too.
  • The Illusive Man: Slytherin par excellence.
  • Saren: Slytherin, maybe, simply for the well-intentioned extremism.
  • Kai Leng: Hufflepuff, the smug asshole, cereal stealing, loyal henchman kind.
  • The Reapers: Broke the scale.

Starcraft
  • Jim Raynor: Gryffindor, baby.
  • Sarah Kerrigan: Slytherin. She's an assassin. And as the Queen of Blades, she's a Magnificent Bitch.
  • Tassadar: Gryffindor. The greatest protoss hero. Sacrificed his life to defeat the Overmind.
  • Zeratul: He's been described as a "good Darth Vader" so Slytherin.
  • Aldaris: The obstructive bureaucrat, racist asshole Slytherin.
  • Artanis: Gryffindor. Especially in Starcraft II where he wears Bling of War, acts heroic, and every line sounds likes its from a Rousing Speech.
  • Selendis: Slytherin. Is willing to Shoot the Dog with an infested colony.
  • Fenix: Gryffindor. Blood Knight.
  • Horace Warfield: Gryffindor. Guy fights on the front line with his men and punches a Hydralisk in the goddamn face.
  • Arcturus Mengsk: Slytherin all the way. The man can lie to telepaths. The only character who has never been fooled by him is Tassadar, who never met him.
  • Valerian Mengsk: Slytherin, the good kind. Ridiculously ambitious, and willing to stake a lot on it.
  • Dr. Ariel Hanson: Ravenclaw
  • Gabriel Tosh: Slytherin, in a Pay Evil unto Evil kind of way.
  • Dr. Egon Stettmann: Ravenclaw.

[up]Methods!Harry is an insufferable tool? Oh well, I disagree but I don't see the need to get bent out of shape about it. It is too early in the morning and my breakfast is still digesting.

@Hamburger, I chose the Slytherin icon as my avatar because every Sorting Hat test on the internet has put me in House Slytherin. Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, the third time it's enemy action, and the fourth time you stop arguing, 8-)

Looks further up, notices challenge reference Final Fantasy VIII. Shudders slightly. (does not like game at all)

Squall Leonhart: House Slytherin with some elements of House Gryffindor. Plays the Hero when it suits him yet is moodier than a thing from the planet moody. Genius Bruiser.

Rinoa Heartilly: House Hufflepuff. Kind hearted, hugely talented offensive caster yet quite literally Pets The Dog.

Laguna Loire: House Slytherin. Like Son, Like Father. Since he is Squall's daddy. Genius Bruiser. Aspiring Writer.

Seifer Almasy: House Gryffindor. Like Sephiroth in Final Fantasy VII, he would be the Hero in his own story. And like James Potter in Canon! and Methods!Potter, is a bully. Like him, grows out of it towards the end when he realizes just how far he was sold up the river by his bosses. Genius Bruiser. (notice a trend yet?)

Quistis Trepe: House Hufflepuff. Genius Bruiser. Sisterly figure to Squall, eventually. Sort of like a Prefect in role at Balamb Garden.

Selphie Tilmitt: House Hufflepuff. Fragile Speedster. Hard worker and dependable teammate. Ferociously loyal.

Zell Dincht: House Gryffindor. Lightning Bruiser. Attention Deficit Oh Shiny.

Irvine Kinneas: House Slytherin. Cold Sniper.

and finally.

Edea Kramer: House Gryffindor.

Carrier of Pigeons
Adventure Time (forgive me if this has been done. I only got to page 5, then had to post)
  • Finn: Gryffindor. This needs no real explanation. He's brave, courageous, and wants to help others. He's also hot headed at times, and adventurous!
  • Princess Bubblegum: Ravenclaw. Again, obvious. All into science, discovery, discovering things, and mathematical equations.
  • Jake: Hufflepuff. He's just here for the show. Laid back, fair, level headed.
  • Marcelline: Slytherin. She's cunning, tricky, smart, and has a malicious streak. While she's not evil per say, neither is everyone in Slytherin.

Scrubs
  • JD: Hufflepuff. He just wants everyone to get along, and for a smoother ride than the one he's got.
  • Turk: Gryffindor. Outgoing, brave, loud, charismatic. He's the Batman to JD's Robin.
  • Carla: Ravenclaw. Though sassy, she is the brains of the bunch. If anyone has a problem, she's usually the one who has a solution
  • Dr. Cox: Slytherin. He's cunning, snarky, self centered, brilliant but in it for himself more than anyone.
  • Elliot: also Slytherin, but on a different spectrum. She's cunning and ambitious like a Slytherin, but doesn't exhibit the same amount of self absorbed as Dr. Cox does, though she has her moments
  • Dr. Kelso: while I'm tempted to say Slytherin, I actually think he's more of a Gryffindor. Though he has a bad temper, he's a leader with a certain charisma and strength that make people want to follow his directions.
  • Ted: Hufflepuff. He really is a doormat compared to anyone else.
  • Keith: Gryffindor. While he starts out shy and unsure of himself, he, like Neville, grows into a very experienced, brave, and well adjusted doctor.

I'll try with Desperate Housewives.

Susan -> Gryffindor

Lynette -> Ravenclaw

Bree -> Hufflepuff

Gabrielle -> Slytherin

Edie -> Slytherin

Karen -> Gryffindor

Mike -> Gryffindor

Orson -> Ravenclaw or Slytherin

Tom -> Gryffindor

Karl -> Slytherin
OMNIA RESOLVITUR DIALECTICE
Professional Wrestlers:

-Standard Heels go to Slytherin without question. Most are cowardly and self-serving or thuggish.

-Heroic Slytherins include Stone Cold Steve Austin.

-Kurt Angle I think would be a Ravenclaw, whether he's Heel or Face.

-Bret Hart for Gryffindor.

-DX is hard to classify for me...

-The Hurricane to Gryffindor.

-Hulk Hogan too obviously.

-Mick Foley to Hufflepuff. Hell, he pretty much is the Hufflepuff of pro-wrestling.

-I'm also at a loss to think of a Heel Gryffindor. I'm sure there are a lot but whenever I need to use my lifetime of watching pro wrestling experience, I draw a blank.

[up]Hulk is too smart to be a Gryffindor. That the man is so popular even after stabbing so many different franchises in the spine, knocking the shit out of Stallone in a Rocky film and still has incredible hair, would seem to indicate that he is either Ravenclaw or Slytherin.

Yet Harry Potter canon supergeniuses Dumbledore and Hermione were also Gryffindors. Funny that.

Are we going under the assumption that Gryffindors will be mostly dumb muscle?
Talos guide you.
Way late but I'd challenge Squall being a Slytherin.

For a start being moody isn't the house's defining trait, nor is it really a trait associated with the house. Their trait is ambition and Squall shows no real ambition beyond joining See D and even that's because it seems like what he should do.

If anything I'd say he's a Gryffindor or a Hufflepuff and I'm more inclined towards the latter.

Gryffindor because he faces down all kinds of monsters and world-conquering sorceresses without flinching, although this is generic hero stuff so it's kind of weak. However it's his motivations for doing this that lead me to the second option:

Hufflepuff because even though he goes out of his way to avoid making personal relationships, once he does loyalty isn't a strong enough word. For example, when he charges off ahead of everyone else to rescue Zell. Then there's what he does for Rinoa, crossing oceans on foot, storming the memorial and throwing himself into space, not to mention:

"Even if you become the world's enemy, I'll be your knight."

Plus when put into a command position he really feels the responsibility of having his subortinates' lives in his hands.

Not to mention that you probably have to be a pretty hard worker to make See D. The duel against Seifer in the opening, fighting Ifrit and the Dollet Mission all occur on the same day.
