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.

In, The Goblet of Fire, "B-blood of the enemy...forcibly taken... you ...resurrect your foe."

Maybe by taking blood of Harry, Voldemort has taken the horcrux out of him. If that can happen, then there is a chance Harry can Voldemort.

I have been think about this too. I wasn't sure, but when I heard the prophercy again, I had to agree with it. In the prophercy it says 'and he mark him as his equal'. I have always been puzzled by this, as how is trying to Harry marking him as his equal? He ed so many people that it can't be. But if he put a bit of his soul into Harry Potter then that would be marking him as his equal, would it?

Yes, Leaf900, putting part of his soul in Harry's body would be like "marking him as Voldemort's equal". Plenty of us think that the scar has something to do with Voldemort's soul. But it can be this way without being a horcrux.

Towards the end of the Half-blood Prince, Snape stopped the Crucio curse on Harry and said that "Potter belongs to the Dark Lord". Would Voldemort want to Harry himself for personal satisfaction, or does statement explicitly state that Harry is Voldemort's? I choose to believe that it's the latter, and agree with Dave that Harry or his scar is one of the Horcruxes

What if Voldemort had taken an object with him to Godric's Hollow that night? The object that he wanted to put his last bit of soul in?

I think that Harry find that object when he visits Hollow in the last book.

I dont think that Harry is the horcrux, as many people have already stated why this is not reasonable.

it's a realy good theory i guess and i think you're right, it would be a great ending, if they both . you don't see that much anymore. i think would be much more heroic that they both and that harry sacrifises himself for the world!

I have always like this theory, however:
Voldy has tried to Harry both in the graveyard in GoF and in the Dept of Mysteries in OoTP. If Harry is a horcrux, either
(a) Voldy dosen't care if he gets rid of one of his horcruxes
(b) Voldy dosen't know he made Harry a horcrux
(c) Harry isn't a horcrux
Also, if you try to destroy your own horcrux, wouldn't it rebound on you anyway? Wouldn't it be like a kind of part-suicide?

Good idea that Harry might find an object that Voldy wanted to use as a horcrux after the ing of the Potters. If Harry had that object and all the other destroyed horcruxes (except the diary that was given back to Mr. Malfoy), the psychological blow to Voldy would be tremendous. That would help give Harry the advantage he needs.

Unfortunately, everthing in this clue fits, therefore I'm also forced to believe it is true.

And this supports a bit my theory about love: Dumbledore is right. Harry can love, and it is the only thing that ignores Voldemort's power. Harry could become a little Voldemort, because he IS voldemort. But no, he had something that Voldemort doesnt have: Love.

In conclusion, and once again, Dumbledore is right. The truth is so cruel. Voldemort used another person, another life, to make is own life stronger. Harry is voldemort, and he be voldemort till he s.
There is a small option. Maybe love can separate Harry from Voldemort, maybe love destroy the voldemort that lives inside harry's body, not ing harry. Or maybe Voldemort, without his body or any other horcrux, stay in Harry's body, and feel such pain that he rather than live that way.
As far as I see, it is the only good end this story can take.

I honestly think Harry is a horcrux by accident and that there are seven horcruxes.

Harry sometime in the 7th book try to either himself or so that someone can Voldemort but I think he be stopped by Pettigrew. Peter owes Harry a life and he repay it by telling harry how to get the horcrux out of him without ingg\ himself since he has spent so much time with Voldemort he probably knows alot bout Horcruxes.

I also have a strong feeling that one of the Horcruxes is the Mirror of Erised. Any power hungry person lusts after what they truely want and Voldemort durin his time at Hogwarts probably spent alot of time with that Mirror and would inevitably make it a Horcrux because it has a huge meaning to him that we have yet to figure out.

I think that harry destroy all of the Horcruxes with the help of Peter, Ron, Neville, and Hermione. At the last battle, Snape save Harry with some type of potion and Snape from Voldemort but he save Harry.

Snape loved Harry and gave up his life for him and with that Harry attempt to Voldemort and love finally defeat Voldemort.

Neville play a huge role in this ending, he be the turning point of the book and I think that Snape, Neville, and alot of people .

Lauren, I think Voldemort is always trying to Harry because he knows how dangerous it can be to have a horcrux inside such a person like Harry. I believe that it is why he is always trying to Harry... And wants to be sure that horcrux doesn't exist anymore, so that he doesnt get trapped in such a body.

Once again, there is absolutely no evidence that Voldemort really tried to Harry in OotP and GoF. If it's possible for Snape to say Avada Kedavra, and send Dumbledore over the wall down the tower, then it's possible for Voldemort to pretend ing Harry, and not really make it.

Lots of small hints show that the curse sent by Voldemort wasn't a ly one.
