Rin Tohsaka ( Fate/Stay Night )

Round 1. Normal Battle.

Round 2. Equal Phisicality & Magic Powers.

Bonus Round: Same as Round 2, they fight to get in one bathroom as both are nearly about to...you know "1/2" :roll: ;)

Round 1 - Hermione is going to lose since HPverse has PIS to spam the jet-o-light spells that can be dodged

Round 2 - I don't know what that means per say- but it does make this much more Hermione's game since Rin will presumably be far slower than normal and that will affect her own casting and movement. Meanwhile AFAIK Rin has to throw physical crystals at Hermione to work her magic and Hermione can make a shield that keeps the physical crystals away from her.

Bonus: I have no idea what the hell that means.

Unless that shield is strong enough to protect against blasts that can destroy buildings i'm not sure how much good it'll do her.

And Rin, too, is capable of shields. Offense is not the only thing she uses her jewels for.

I mean you can make that shield spell at a distance as Harry demonstrated in book 7 when he conjured one up between Hermione and Ron- I was thinking more along the lines of blocking the crystals long before they get to her or reversing their path and the like. Moving and stopping small airborne objects is one of the few things I think HP magic can adequately do.
Basic spells should be able to alter the path of the gems or throw them right back at Rin- stuff like levitation is 1st-year training.

http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Arresto_Momentum
http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Descendo
http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Banishing_Charm

And even that aside, we're still stuck in the nebulous territory of Harry Potter spells in general as some produce jets of light and others just happen- the movies themselves don't consistently follow either convention either. Since we see spells taking effect without being blasts so long as it isn't combat...
Stuff like this for example can be a game-changer if there's nothing to dodge (I forget if Rin needs to use words or not).

http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Langlock
http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Obscuro


Hell, they go back and forth with this one
http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Full_Body-Bind_Curse
the wiki even lists the different ways they depict it. The books usually don't mention it requiring a blast of light at all- Dumbledore nailed Harry with it and seeing as they were hiding a flash of light kinda would've been noticed had he fired it.

This is the burden of trying to do anything with HP magic. There's no winning.

Take a crap (number 2) and a piss (number 1), so essentially, the only difference from round 2 is their even more desperate to take each-other because they need the loo, not just trying to avoid death at the hands of their enemy....

Spoiler
And while were on the subject and since nobody is going to read this I certainly do not mind declaring here in hiding my joy when I do a massive log of fecal love, so hard like a firm shaft that I can then shove deeply back from whence it came, afterall my dear ex wife Meredith always did say I had trouble letting go! Ah, my dear Meridith how you rest in our garden, beneath the posies and beside our dear pet dog Slurpy!

Alas, that women knew where to shove a fresh corn log, no orifice was off limits...ahh, those were the days!

In case there wasn't enough proof Rowling doesn't think about how she makes her magic system work...
https://www.jkrowling.com/welcome-to-my-new-website/
Question 3. Why couldn’t Newt use ‘Accio’ to retrieve all his beasts?

‘Accio’ only works on inanimate objects. While people or creatures may be indirectly moved by ‘Accio-ing’ objects that they are wearing or holding, this carries all kinds of risks because of the likelihood of injury to the person or beast attached to an object travelling at close to the speed of light.

Apparently Accio makes stuff come to you at relativistic speeds...

Isn't that contradicted by the time it's taken things to reach characters before? Like in the books I mean I feel like I remember there being noticeable if short travel times when it was used.

To be fair, AFAIK most of the time it has been used to call brooms, which arguably would fly under their own travel speed instead of the spell itself since they're capable of it. Any other time it didn't explicitly state any sort of specifics for how long it took something to get to them.

The idea of relativistic reactions for Harry Potter characters makes me simultaneously groan and laugh.

The object might just auto glide to the person's hands or slow within a certain vicinity of the wand though otherwise it might also need to mean their bodies can survive objects hitting their hands at those speeds.

Granted Bludgers which are only around broom speeds (which we know) are a credible threat even if you know they are coming so that might also contradict?
