17 'Game Of Thones' & Harry Potter Similarities That Are So Uncanny They Will Have You Questioning Everything

Warner Bros / HBO

Harry Potter and Game Of Thrones are some of the most stan-able universes of all time. Garnering the kind of fandom that leads to a lot of cosplay, endless conventions, and a meal ticket for life for any main characters. Which, to be honest, is a genuine relief for any people in creative industries. But guys apart from fandom, and of course the redonk amount of money the casts of both have made, there are so many similarities between Harry Potter and Game Of Thrones.

Dare I go so far as to say that like, GOT is a bit like Harry Potter after the watershed? OK maybe that is a stretch but guys, there are a serious amount of themes, characters, and facts that the two share.

Now, don't get me wrong. I am not saying that one is a copy of the other. No way in hell. They are both wonderfully lit in their own special way, but I guess when you get into magic and mythology there is always going to be a few cross overs. If it ain't broke don't fix it, am I right?

To be honest, narrowing it down was actually a little difficult because there are that many common threads. However after a coffee break, a lot of soul searching, and of course utilising years of marathon watching/reading, I narrowed it down to 17.
