Written by a would-be Slytherin.

1. They're arrogant.

They actually think they're above everybody else.

2. They're judgemental.

Lol OK Hermione, that's your future husband you're talking to.

3. They always think they know best.

Warner Bros

OK, sometimes they do, but not always.

4. Loyalty clearly doesn't have a definition in the Gryffindor house.

Warner Bros

Remember in Philosopher's Stone when Hermione just did a casual Petrificus Totalus to get rid of Neville?

5. The teachers, Dumbledore in particular, favour them.

OK, Harry's the chosen one, yay.

6. They pretend to be goody two-shoes.

"Ohhh we're Gryffindors, we'd never do anything wrong, blame Slytherin."

7. But they actually break the rules ALL THE TIME and get away with it.

Warner Bros

Harry and Ron had a wizard joyride in their second year and the only punishment was a snapped wand and detention. In the muggle world, you'd be in prison.

8. In fact, if you lay out every rule that was ever broken in all seven books, Gryffindor definitely come out on top.

That list is too long to include because basically Harry has no regard for rules at all.

9. Gryffindors are exceptionally hotheaded.

Warner Bros

Seriously, they just blow their top.

10. They're impulsive and act without thinking a lot of the time.

Warner Bros

They just run about trying to save everything without thinking first.

11. And their stupidity is often mistaken for bravery.

Warner Bros

Follow spiders Harry lol good idea.

12. For a house that's meant to be loyal and brave, they certainly have a bully or two.

James Potter, for example.

13. It would take approximately three minutes of hanging out with a Gryffindor to get in trouble.

Warner Bros

Even less if you hung out with Fred and George.

14. But on the upside it would be OK because Gryffindors get away with absolutely everything.

You ~might~ get detention, but it's OK because if you're a Gryffindor you just get sent to do detention with your favourite teacher.

15. They break curfew all the time.

Harry and that bloody cloak, seriously just go to sleep and stop wandering the corridors looking for trouble.

16. And they don't mind breaking bro code.

Warner Bros

Dating your best friend's sister? Acceptable.

17. The only good thing about Gryffindor is that without them, there wouldn't be much of a story because Hogwarts would be a much safer place.

18. But they're still the worst.
