How would you fight the HP wizards? Remember that they can teleport, have one hit kill spells, mind control spells, pain spells, and can summon kinetic barriers for bullets. Is it hopeless? Should we just bow to our wizard overlords?

>Buying Rooty-Tooty-Point-'N-Shooties in Bongtown.
Was Harold Patter an allegory for gun ownership?
Rowling herself has stated that, in a battle between a wizard with a wand and a muggle with a shotgun, the muggle with the shotgun will usually win.
In this scenario, are we fighting the entire wizarding world or just dark wizards like Voldemort?
If we're fighting the entire wizarding world we're fucked; the bastards just have cast the Imperius curse on world leaders and military personnel and they could easily control all the world's WMD's. One cunt hair out of line and we'll all be bleached skulls.
And I, for one, would like to welcome our new wizard overlords. As a /k/ommando, I can be of use rounding up normies to toil in your potion factories.
If we're fighting with good wizards on our side though, they can both protect us and keep the powers of dark wizards focused on themselves, allowing us to get whatever weapons we need in place to finish the job.
I hope not. Considering J K however you spell it was living in the gutter at the time of its conception. If even the most impoverished Britbongs think about getting rid of rooty tooty point and shootys above their next meal then there's something real wrong happening across the pond.

Don't make me laugh. Because it's not funny
Good thing they never utilize these abilities to their theoretical max capabilities
But yeah, modern small arms and good tactical fundamentals should be good to go most of the time. You would probably want wizards for shit like the magical super-zombies and dementors
Last time I checked wizards can't heal having their head blown apart
Except if you think about it in terms of wands = guns and the whole thing is about gun ownership it's really really anti gun control. The government traces everything underage wizzards do and is portrayed as a bad thing considering how much it fucks with the main characters. The completely evil totalitarian ruler who bans defensive magic use is counteracted by students forming a secret army to train to fight. The whole time government is portrayed as completely inept and the idea that it should be trusted wholely for protection is stupid.
Why not both?
>there will never be tactical magical wizard OPERATORS using SCAR-Hs with underslung wand attachments, invisibility cloaks, time rewinding devices, and tactical insertion by broomstick
>time rewinding devices,
JK really made a boner move when introducing time traveling into the series. Time travel breaks the story beyond repair for 99/100 stories that don't get it right.
Actually wizards are in hiding from muggles for their own safety, as you might remember. Being pretty violent against things we don't understand, and having amassed some pretty ridiculous means of killing, we would entirely obliterate the small pack of supernatural freaks that seem to be stuck in 18th-19th century, as far as technology goes.
Even Rowling mentioned that the entire issue of a mass murderer that wreaked havoc on magical society for a decade could have been solved instantly by a gun or two. But, you know, seeing how it's taking place in bongistan and all..
Shoot them with a caster
It takes a wizard to kill a wizard.
>Remember that they can teleport, have one hit kill spells, mind control spells, pain spells, and can summon kinetic barriers for bullets
Let me stop you there
They would be laying on the ground bleeding to death before they even heard a gunshot and realized that they were being fired at.
And if you pulled the trigger at the same time they were casting a spell, they'd be struck before they could even finish their chant.
If you were far enough away that they could finish before they were hit, they wouldn't even realize you're there.
you must be fucking joking. They have to take time to utter some dumb shit incantation, wave a wand, and then wait for the slow as shit spell to hit. They'd be easy pickings for dmrs.
As for everyone mentioning chanting, there is actually non-verbal techniques to casting by just thinking it. In fact, in that action-packed duel between Gandalf and Michael Jackson at the end of movie 5, neither of them uttered a word through the entire battle. Man that must have looked goofy without all the CG.
I tried arguing this exact point one time. It all becomes really simple because you can just make shit up to defend the wizard side. Its simple, anything you could say can be countered with well muggle technology simply would stop working. Like pull a gun in Hogwarts and bs presto magic nothing would happen if you pulled the trigger cause magic.
No matter what you can't beat magic because it follows no sense of realism.
>Like pull a gun in Hogwarts and bs presto magic nothing would happen if you pulled the trigger cause magic.
No, magic doesn't stop chemical reactions like gunpowder, it messes with electronics.
Really a war between muggles and wizards is about surprise. If muggles found out about wizards somehow and decided to exterminate them in a surprise attack, then they would win. But if it failed and wizards got wise to it, then they'd win. They would just have 24/7 kinetic barriers to stop bullets including long distance shots, they'd imperio world leaders, teleport in to bullet factories and blow them up, etc. Prolonged wars between muggles and wizards would end in the wizards' favor.
Magic without voicing the spell is rare. Only some of the most powerful wizards can cast with out chanting. The books reference this face several times. Dumbledor and Voldemort are 2 very powerful wizards, of course only a sith lord and gandalf the white are the only 2 that are recognized as being able to do it.
Alternatively, any rifle and shooter capable of making shots past 100yds would probably be enough.
>If we're fighting the entire wizarding world we're fucked; the bastards just have cast the Imperius curse on world leaders and military personnel and they could easily control all the world's WMD's. One cunt hair out of line and we'll all be bleached skulls.
Using WMD's would hurt them just as much as us; they live on the same planet after all. And you cannot control the whole population. Organisations with rigid command structures would be vulnerable, but gorilla warfare would make life hell for wizards.
Honestly, the hardest part is not actually killing them, as any sniper or drone could pop them before they can teleport out or muster a defense.
The problem is discovering them, and tracking them while bringing a strike asset into position. Mind modification is a huge problem for HUMINT reports; cameras everywhere can help a lot--though it's hard to say how effective illusions would be against them (plus they need constant monitoring by a large staff).
Once you've actually found them in some spot for any length of time, it's not so hard to have a fast-reaction team of snipers.
Much bigger problem is as >>28923459 said, they could do very effective counters to being hunted down. Whether it's your team being disbanded by higher ups, losing its budget, having WMD counterstrike threats, or even just some guy on your strike force being captured and spilling everything to a mind control curse, you'd have to have the hunting organization set up in such a fashion that they didn't exist to anyone who might know, and were funded adequately for the next 10 years all at the outset.
JK Rowling did note that if humans and wizards did go to war, humans would crush them hard. To note, Voldemort and Dumbledore were the most powerful wizards, and those in Hoggworts are much more powerful than most wizards in general. So in reality, most wizards ate complete scrubs and guns would wreck the shit or of them
That's assuming both sides are extremely competent and well trained. It's been shown, time and time again, that the magical word only has a an inkling of what the muggles can do. What's also interesting is that spells, charms and curses have their limits. If Emma Watson could shatter Daniel Radcliffe's shield charm with a well placed Jelly-Legs Jinx, how many bullets do you think a kinetic barrier spell could stop? It's not like most of them are Michael Gambon or Ralph Fiennes tier. Those two are exceptions, not rules.
Though, I think a JDAM would do fine for them. If not, a Davy Crockett for shits and giggles.
>Though, I think a JDAM would do fine for them. If not, a Davy Crockett for shits and giggles.
Again, that's assuming the muggles had the drop on them. If not, the wizards can just cast a spell so that muggles can never find them like they did with hogwarts.
You also have to take into account what >>28924386 said. Most of them aren't that good, and even if they got wind of the Muggles' intents, well, be honest. Would they even take the Muggles seriously? They've been portrayed as pretty damn incompetent in general, with only a few special, elite individuals running the whole show/keeping it all from falling apart. Even the grand concealment spells and such were cast long ago by masters. It's not just a matter of only getting the jump on one another, but hunting one another down.
If wizards got the jump, attrition would slowly kill their best over time simply because there's so many muggles to kill/subjugate, leaving a bunch of incompetent but powerful scrubs. If muggles got the jump, it would be more the matter of tracking down the POIs and then the rest, which is also a nightmare as >>28924354 said.
No matter what, it's a Long War.
I'm all for the M-COM initiative however.
She did it kind of right by making it a stable time loop--i.e. nothing you do actually changes what happened, it always happened (which has severe philosophical ramifications but that's for another discussion).
See above. Time turners can't actually change the past because what you do in the past always happened.
You should. I'm the one who posted that. The only good Nanoha is the first two seasons (and by extension the movies). Seasons 3 and 4 are a complete departure from the series and suffered immensely in writing and production for various reasons. They're only worth watching for select scenes.
My main draw to Nanoha is how it rebels against the idea of a mahou shoujo fighting for justice and for her friends. Nanoha herself is a very well constructed character.
I'm not entirely sure how that kind of magic worked, but the magical death murderball shit that you're talking about supposedly fucks up your soul to pretty extreme degrees (they don't say how), so most of them wouldn't actually try to kill us. Also, since spells have to be taught in a class there's probably more to it than just thinking the words and having the universe bend to your will, to the point that a certain degree of concentration and willpower (and aim) is required, and most wizards probably aren't on the level of moldymort or a magic school professor. It would take a lot of lives and air support, as well as whole new tactics, but they could be fought.
The problem is that we generally can't see them before they see us. Just about everything surrounding wizards looks different and mundane for us. The only way we could even find them is if they got careless or one defected and gave us enough information to let us in on how magic worked. The other problem is that, given enough wizards raised in non magic households, they could learn to use our stuff and could disable it much more easily.
No matter what, a full blown war would be catastrophic. But if just one attacked you you could just shoot them.

I'm sorry, I think I've just contracted seventeen different terminal diseases. Excuse me as I shit and puke my guts out.
Unless they're space wizards who also wield weapons instead of gay ass wands, they don't stand a chance against our weapons.
Considering how xenophobic the wizarding world seems to be, I could see muggleborn wizards being driven away if it came to blows like that.
Even without that, you could see splintering in the wizarding world if one faction wants to coexist with muggles and another wants to exterminate.
Oddly, the thing that bothered me the most was the part about the basilisk. Even looking at an image of one will fuck you up, you just won't die from it.
Let me think a sec.
A secret war in the making, with a pre-funded, fully compartmentalized cloaks-and-dagger type of initiative that sets out to acquire promising samples from the wizarding world. The M-COM initiative would need, most of all, wizarding world defectors, of which there would likely be plenty. Though individuals like Hermione Granger would easily accept the wizarding worlds, there are definitely muggle borns who would be repulsed by the status quo and the perceived injustices of it. I mean, imagine that childhood friend who would have been saved from a greviously injuring car accident, or had her cancer cured by magic. But wasn't. And would never, if the wizarding world had its way. Acquiring these would be our top priority. From there, these individuals would be trained not in field use, but in developing hybridized systems of magic and technology - MagiTech - specifically for tracking down, enabling technological usage in magic-dense environments and also defending from magic's most offensive and damaging effects such as mind control or teleportation.
Once the initial technologies are developed, the wizarding world would have to be mapped out - a task made much easier with sympathetic muggle-born wizards and witches. Additional objects of interest are captured for study with extreme care, while the alpha strikes are planned with full use of the advanced tracking, compatibility and defensive Magitech tools. As the strikes are carried out, the objects and persons of value are captured in the chaos, ensuring more material for future research for even more powerful Magitechnologies. From here on out, the effort becomes a steamroller of epic proportions, as immensely powerful POIs such as Dumbledore and Voldermort are eliminated immediately with surprise and overwhelming force due to their danger.
From here, it is mostly mop up, as the remnants will never be able to sufficiently educate and train themselves so long as there is pressure.
I think one time I was curious and looked up JK's position on guns, only to find out she is pretty anti gun. So the fact that she made an entire universe where even children have the right to a magical death stick and use it however they want is pretty funny. Of course there are a few unforgivable curses, but they're just illegal. And that's that, no banning all sticks because some bad stuff could happen if used in the wrong way. Just, "Oh its illegal and if someone gets caught they'll go to jail and that's good enough. " Even after their Hitler murdered scores of people and they know there are more or his supporters at large, they still hand out the sticks to 10 year olds like candy. The right to self defense and other such things is written as an absolute.
Sound awfully familiar? It's almost as if some people are just scared of guns and don't know anything about them. That if it was any other shaped object they would be perfectly fine with it. Shows you how effective the British conditioning is.
I don't think it 'rebelled', but stayed in line with the tropes while fleshing out the results just a bit more, but not to their ultimate conclusion. I honestly hated her as a person. She resorts to overwhelming force in most situations. Even when training new, raw recruits, she simply hospitalizes one of them for not following orders rather than explaining - in detail - why something was a very bad idea. And she doesn't face the consequences of this in most situations either.
I preferred Madoka and company a lot more, since they often paid for their stupidity with their lives. That, was a rebellion against the idea of 'magical girls fighting for friends and justice'. Look at Sayaka - she's pretty much an example of why the idea is stupid, and paid dearly for being that stupid.
I love mecha, but not when they start getting super, absurdly powerful. Though I like funnels and bits, I don't like huge, massive blaster cannons that are effectively portable WMDs because the setting itself usually doesn't accommodate for it very well. You often don't see the realistic effects of enemy military forces actively adjusting the presence of such a white devil snowflake, and if they do, the efforts are half-hearted. Though, I admit, enjoyable.
I prefer something that's closer to the average grunt or mech-jocky, so enjoyed Season 1 of Aldnoah Zero. Screw season 2 though.
reminder that according to HP canon guns are a topic wizards know very little of
>someone was writing a report on 'firelegs' one point
>a gun was described as a 'wand muggles use to kill one another with'
ergo i believe wizards are powerless against firearms, especially when engaging them from longer range/concealment
>I honestly hated her as a person. She resorts to overwhelming force in most situations
This is part of why she is a good character. That scene you mentioned is the best part of season 3 by far. It's funny how the other characters tried to downplay her actions in the following episode. Nanoha is a demon. She's also well aware of her actions and several steps ahead of most everyone else, tactically speaking. The destruction in this series is real, the creators are well aware of the absurdity of her power and they do well to demonstrate the despair in her fighting. She also gets her ass kicked, quite a bit.
Both Madoka and Nanoha (among others) rebel against the moniker "mahou shoujo" in different ways. They're not very similar at all.
Absurdly powerful is something like Gundam Wing, wherein a sweeping blast is fired at the enemies' frontline and a second later secondary explosions glimmer in the distance.
Nanoha's combat is refreshing for its emphasis on close quarters battle, and in ranged combat with control of multiple projectiles or funnels. Season 4 has some very well choreographed hand-to-hand. It's also worth noting that the "portable WMD" -esque attacks in Nanoha are seemingly only used in one-on-one combat and often on equal footing (so the wide-area strategic advantage of wiping out entire columns of enemies doesn't apply).
Average grunt mecha is where it's at. I agree. Votoms and 08th MS get pretty darn close to that.
>And I, for one, would like to welcome our new wizard overlords. As a /k/ommando, I can be of use rounding up normies to toil in your potion factories.
I'd rather die fighting than living on my knees sucking some wizard's cock.
>How would you fight the HP wizards?
Ask a 12 year old to make a collage out of loose pieces of mythology and use it as tinder for a bonfire for you to kill yourself with, OP.
It's precisely because of that dissonance that I hated the series and her as a character. The way the others reacted wasn't funny at all, since they weren't even acting like people at that point. If Darth Vader force chokes someone and then stops, everyone else is scared. Yet, Nanoha gets off scott free? It breaks the suspension of disbelief every time she does something like that and gets away with it without consequence, and even more so when the others downplay it. Hell, I rooted more for the bad guys than Nanoha. So what if she gets her ass kicked here and there? In the end of the day, they weren't even acting like people. More like brain-washed storm troopers who believed everything they were doing was right. Overwhelming firepower is only enjoyable if the person doing it isn't a total bitch like Nanoha or an emo like in Gundam Wing. I loved Toonami, but god damn were those pricks pretentious! Even I knew that as a little shit.
And based VOTOMS and 8th MS. Thunderbolt is looking to be pretty good too.

That only some Wizards. And they have to be pretty fluent in their craft to use it. Even more so if they are able to pull off multiple spells effectively in a combat situation. Most of them should be easily dispatched by conventional methods. It's those high-level Warlocks you have to watch out for. They are well practiced in the martial magics. In the HP-verse they actually held duelling tournaments in which the Judges would have the title of warlock.
For them it's best that they killed before they see it coming with a method like sniping.
I'd enlist the help of Madara Uchiha.
And I'm not talking about Edo Tensei Uchiha Madara. No, I'm not talking about Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara. Hell, I'm not talking about Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara either.
I'm talking about Kono Yo no Kyuseishu Futarime no Rikudo Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan (which is capable of Enton Amaterasu, Izanagi, Izanami and the Tsyukuyomi Genjutsu), his two original Rinnegan (which grant him Chikushodo, Shurado, Tendo, Ningendo, Jigokudo, Gakido, Gedo, Bansho Ten'in, Chibaku Tensei, Shinra Tensei, Tengai Shinsei and Banbutsu Sozo) and a third Tomoe Rinnegan on his forehead, capable of using Katon, Futon, Raiton, Doton, Suiton, Mokuton, Ranton, Inton, Yoton and even Onmyoton Jutsu, equipped with his Gunbai(capable of using Uchihagaeshi) and a Shakujo because he is a master in kenjutsu and taijutsu, a perfect Susano'o (that can use Yasaka no Magatama ), control of both the Juubi and the Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju's DNA and face implanted on his chest, his four Rinbo Hengoku Clones guarding him and nine Gudodama floating behind him AFTER he absorbed Senjutsu from the First Hokage, entered Rikudo Senjutsu Mode, cast Mugen Tsukuyomi on everybody and used Shin: Jukai Kotan so he can use their Chakra while they are under Genjutsu.
You don't have to personally identify with a character (or a series) for them to be well constructed. The ability to evoke an emotional response from the audience is the trait of a good writer, no matter what that response may be.
How her colleagues reacted was so incredibly human. You may have misunderstood how I used the word "funny". They are scared, they know there's nothing they could do if they crossed Nanoha. Darth Vader is an apt example. They downplay Nanoha's actions, but they all know it wasn't right. They are simply powerless to do otherwise.
You need to put your feelings aside if you want to get a legitimate experience from series like that, especially when something rubs you the wrong way. Make your ego melt into the wind and become a perfect observer; get into the heads of the writers.
That's the problem though; they weren't powerless. They're her friends. I tried to bleach that crap out of my mind, but IIRC, they don't even try to get her to stop screwing up, do they? I don't think they did. That alone makes the rest of the cast even more reprehensible. That they did not attempt to stop this shitty behavior, and that they decided to overlook this ultra-shitty behavior. There was never a, "Hey girl, that wasn't cool, and it's making me uncomfortable" moment at all. They all just kept right on at it and never paid the consequences for their actions.
Build a couple of these and we'll steamroll them.
Well, to be fair, the third season that I'm ripping on doesn't entirely center on Nanoha. The first and second seasons though, do, and it's all rather regular Magical Girl stuff. Except for the obscene amounts of firepower and - for what it is - good combat. Plot and characterization are just 'meh' tier. For the third season, if you do watch it, watch it to see how the bad guys do things. They're persistent, resourceful and overall intelligent.
Pretty sure in the books that the kids learned it in their later years like year four or so.
Harry was busting out spells without speaking. Just much better for the movies if they shout the spell so they audience knows what is going on.
Simple. If they get magic, then its fair that I get something as well. My choice would be able to bend the elements. (Avatar) or at least water bending. Use my bending power to blood bend all my enemies and even make them shoot spells at eachother like puppets.
Bait within bait. A splendid ruse, friend. Please enjoy this image of Her Majesty.
>yfw you're reading Dumbledore's duel with Voldemort at the Ministry of Magic and you realize one dude with a rifle could end it either way with a single squeeze of the trigger
The real danger of wizards is not their ability to fight directly, but the spells they have that they can use to conceal themselves or locations, as well as spells that can confuse people or eliminate their memories. It would make them extremely difficult to hunt down. But if you were to put a bunch of wizards out on a battlefield against human armies, they'd die horribly.
Considering that HP wizards have infiltrated global government, can mindfuck anybody they want, can teleport anywhere they want, can brainwash thousands of people at a time, can turn into whatever they want, and kill whatever they want, nothing.
There's no way to fight HP Wizards without even more powerful bullshit magic. Bog standard humans just fucking die. Or hell not even die. Wizards could dismantle the governments of every nation and replace them with wizards, same with the Army. You'd never know, because even if you find out, they mindwipe your ass.
If you paid attention to the books, it's only the scrubs that need to shout the name of their spells. Powerful wizards don't even need a fucking wand.
>Rowling herself has stated that, in a battle between a wizard with a wand and a muggle with a shotgun, the muggle with the shotgun will usually win.
She never did. That's an internet bullshit drawn up years ago that NOBODY has managed to source in years. Go ahead. Find a transcript or a recording of her saying it.
Just watch A's.
Literally the pinnacle of mid 2000's magical girl genre.
I think it's important to note that you could totally kill a scrub wizard with a glock if you were fast on the draw.
The issue is that in a war, you
>Have to figure out that wizards even exist without getting mindwiped
>Have to locate the wizards charmed houses that make you forget they exist when seeing them.
>Have to bomb the wizard houses and schools that you no longer even remember exist, and have magical shields.
>And have to do all of this before the wizard who works as an adviser for your Prime Minister/President/King/etc mindwipes him/impersonates him and takes direct control over the military.
The idea that the military could engage and kill wizards is fucking stupid, because the military will be struggling to remember that they exist in the first place. Approaching wizard houses, schools, or shops result in you getting mindwiped and any technology on hand getting blue screen of death'd. The only way to fight wizards is with wizards.
No nigga. Bones was gone, she gave him a nasty drink, regrew his bones from the shoulder inside of his arm. The pain of the bones growing back into his arm woke him up a few times.
Wizards have a damn potion that can regenerate bones. Probably Limbs too. But they don't share it with muggles. Because they're assholes.
Christ anon, my reasons to live are fading as is.
Except the luck potion goes tend to get people killed when the effects wear off, and the ingrediants are rare, with the skill to make them even more rare, it seems. Also to note, most wizard skills and technology are 300 years old. They're stagnant as fuck. This is why Snape's old book allowed Harry to ace potions, because he got away from the 300 years of BS and old techniques for something that makes more sense.
But shit like this already happened in multiple animes.
Except none of them used to spell to breath-not air. Either they made a bubble mask, which lasts for so long, or they changed into animals, which also has a limited duration or they still remain as animals.
Also to remember, those wizards are also the more powerful wizards. Most other wizards are way weaker and more inept.

Used high tech solutions to the problem. Wizards have a 6th grade education in actual science, they aren't going to realize or know how to defend against the threat of things like polonium dust in their water supply.
