Yuri on Ice Characters’ Hogwarts Houses
I don’t know if anyone has done this yet, but because HP was my first fandom and the one I always fall back on, I have a tendency to sort every character. I put some real thought into this, but this is only my interpretation! Feel free to argue a character’s house! All of these characters could potentially belong to a different house than the one I set for them. So here we go! (completed pre-episode 12, post-episode 11)
At first glance, this cute little cinnamon roll may seem like a Hufflepuff. I definitely don’t deny that he has some Hufflepuff tendencies, but I mean just look at how brave he has been this entire series to get where he is now! He’s had to take on tremendous obstacles and overcome his fears. I picture Yuuri to be a lot like Neville Longbottom. He may seem mild and timid at first, but boy does he pack a punch when it’s his turn to shine!
Once again, Viktor may seem like another house at first glance (namely Ravenclaw or maybe Gryffindor), but my argument for Slytherin is a pretty strong one. This man gave up everything in order to succeed. He is quoted as saying that he’s ignored love and life for 20 years in order to achieve his desires of being the best professional skater out there. His ambition is great, and he does whatever he has to do to get what he wants (such as his relationship with Yuuri).
Okay, stick with me here. I know, I know, you’re thinking, “What?! He’s so clearly a Slytherin though!” Well look again, my friend! Family is very important to Yuri. His grandfather is his entire world. It’s where he finds his agape. He takes commitment and hard work to a whole other level in his training too! Yuri may be an angry smol skater, but he holds his loved ones close and ain’t no slacker when it comes to achieving his goals.
This one is for a lot of the same reasons as Yuuri. Phichit has overcome insurmountable odds in his professional ice skating career. It’s clearly stated in the show that he’s the first Thai skater to ever make it this far. He’s daring and bold, and TBH, I liken him to Ron Weasley a lot.
Chris is a very sensual, intelligent, and artistic individual. In episode 7 during his monologue, Chris states that he designed his own programs with the intention of beating Viktor. Designing your own skate programs takes a level of creativity and intelligence that not all skaters possess. Besides intelligence, Ravenclaws are also known for their creative ingenuity. Chris has this in spades! He is driven to succeed and works hard to do so.
Okay, so my reasons for this one are actually quite similar to my reasons for Viktor being Slytherin. Otabek has come a long way from where he started. By the sounds of it, he had a later start to skating and/or not as much natural talent as others. However he decided to do whatever it took to become the greatest. He has a lot of ambition, and intends to steal the gold away from the Russians in order to bring it back to his home country. Otabek is determined to succeed, and cares little for what others think of him.
Jean Jacques (JJ) Leroy
JJ is exactly the type of person who would complete dares just to prove himself. He acts first and thinks later. He’s bold and daring with his skating (I mean seriously! How many quads did he do?! A lot!) He’s not afraid to push himself to the max. JJ has the heart of a lion, and isn’t afraid to prove it. However he also relies on his fan-base. His family and loved ones are important to him, and he wants to prove himself in their eyes. Lucky for him, they love him unconditionally!
