Is Harry the last horcrux?

by David Haber

In Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince, we learned that, to make himself immortal, Lord Voldemort ripped his soul into seven pieces, and created six horcruxes (the seventh piece of his soul still residing in his body). We know or suspect about five of the horcruxes. Is it possible that Harry is the sixth horcrux? There are clues to suggest that he is.

All this speculation is doing nothing good for my concentration levels... =)
And i think it would be cool if Voldy's wand was a Horcrux... but can you make a wand a Horcrux? would that stop it from like doing magic and stuff? or would it start shooting off evil curses at random, ing everything near it because it has a mind of its own.....

Since the 6th book where the prophecy was explained in depth, I have thought that Voldemort attempt to Harry and succeed. However, in the process, he as well since part of him lies within Harry. Another link between Voldemort and Harry is from the 4th book. Dumbledore tells Harry that it was very important that Harry's blood brought Voldemort back. Voldemort having Harry's blood is also a logical explanation as to why both of them may .

But I dont want both of them to ! Just Harry! wow that sounded really bad.... but i think Voldy is going to win. but i never really got the whole "a part of him lies in harry so they are both going to " can someone please explain so i dont feel stupid?

nick, why would any author off just the hero, and not the arch vilan? that goes against all logic!

and also nick, when did dumbledore tell harry that it was important for him to use his book, not at all as far as i can tell. and when does it say that they have the same blood? again, i cant remember reading this, and that connection would be like a horcrux in the fact that both ends of the spectrum would have the same originator, if what your saying is true, then you-know-who would have suffered immensley when he used the cruciatious curse on harry at the end of goblet of fire. so that dosent mean that if harry s voldemort, harry with the connection.

I have a solution for Harry not having to himself. Ever since the fourth book, when Harry was transported to the graveyard, he is no longer a horcrux. Voldemort took his soul back so he could be restored to human form. Now the only problem is Harry still being able to sense Voldemort. I havn't figured that part out yet...

I don't think Harry is a Horcrux.

We know about the diary, the ring, and the locket

Three more remain, DD suggests Nagini and then says the remaining two perhaps belong to Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, or Ravenclaw.
BUT, I think the horcrux belonging to Gryffindor has already been found and destroyed and I think Harry may set out on a fruitless search until Hermione helps him.

Marvolo Gaunt's ring has been destroyed, it is no longer a Horcrux. This ring has 'the Peverell coat of arms engraved on the stone' (HBP uk ed pg.196).
The name Peverell, like so many other names in HP is a real historical name - a name by the way that was passed on to John of Gaunt (coincidence perhaps). But the noble family of Peverell have of course a coat of arms (well in actual fact they have two) and on this coat of arms is a lion - a lion remarkably like the lion of Gryffindor.

I think that at some point a Slytherin married a Gryffindor and so the ring was passed into the hands of Marvolo Gaunt as a relic of his status of pure blood. I think we find that Harry and Voldemort are distantly related, Voldemort following the bloodline of Slytherin and Harry Gryffindor.

i think harry is the last horcrux but end up ing voldemort...

i know this sounds stupid but look at this... to make a horcrux you have to commit .. so to remove a horcrux.. maybe your life can be saved by someone else...

so i mean that maybe pettigrew would give his life for harry(remember his ) and then maybe harry could withstand the removal of voldemort from his body (dumbledore said you could) and then come back and voldemort, once and for all! could happen you know....

This site is amazing, I am pleased these opinions come from all over the world.

Harry could easily be the last Horcrux, however... I don't think Voldemort knows this. He wouldn't have tried to Harry repeatedly otherwise.

What do you think? Harry as a Horcrux, JK has made anything possible.

Haven't you thought of other possibilities?
I mean, Maybe Voldemort doesn't even and, if he does, and if Harry is a Horcrux at the same time, Neville, as far as I know, be obliged to Voldemort.
That's what I think but still, it is just a theory.
Again, none of us can be sure about the end.

Orlando: I don't think the ring is Gryffindor. It makes sense, for the Horcruxes, to be one from Voldemort's ancestors (the ring), one from him (the Diary) and one from each of the founders. I don't know if Harry's scar is a Horcrux, a failed Horcrux, or something else, but it seems obvious that it contains a part of Voldemort's soul (giving powers to Harry, making him speak parseltongue, marking Harry as Voldemort's equal).

i dont think that harry is a horcrux because voldemort wouldnt want to destroy his own horcrux and he keeps trying to harry he would know if he was a horcrux because he wouldnt be able to make his last horcrux he was planning and he'd be smart enough to figure out he did that to harry.
i think that the last horcrux be something of Rowena Ravenclaws and its a piece of jewelry or something but then again anything can happen.
