The Hunger Games’ Katniss Fights Harry Potter’s Hermione in Princess Rap Battle

These girls are on fire! Whitney Avalon and Molly C. Quinn released the latest edition of their popular YouTube series, Princess Rap Battle, on Wednesday, Nov. 18, this time pitting The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen (played by Avalon) against Harry Potter’s Hermione Granger (played by Quinn).

Although this round is what they call a “book-babe brawl,” don’t expect a boring literary battle. This throwdown is full of rage and wit.

Katniss starts the fight by telling Hermione “she’s just a sidekick,” even stooping so low as to mention the fact that Hermione’s parents are “muggles” — non-wizards.

Hermione then digs deeper, mentioning the death of Katniss’ younger friend Rue, and telling her to “eat poisonous berries” — alluding to Nightlock, the lethal berries in the trilogy.

The best moment of the hilarious video? When Hermione spits the following verse, slaying Katniss.

“How does it help the poor to start a civil war? Your story’s a bore, why don’t you plagiarize more? It’s been done before, ask Dumbledore. It’s Battle Royale set in 1984. And furthermore, if you’re keeping score, that’s five more points for Gryffindor!”
