There are many parallels between Harry Potter and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Both stories are – at their core – fantastical coming-of-age tales, and both sets of characters spend plenty of time manoeuvring through the trials and tribulations of adolescence.

Unfortunately, Harry and Buffy also have to deal with a teacher who hates them with a passion. Though Professor Umbridge is the more irritating of the two, Principal Snyder isn’t much better. Indeed, both teachers loath the teenagers who attend their schools, and as far as they’re concerned, discipline, punctuality, and decorum are paramount.

Umbridge and Snyder also share a fondness for power. Whilst Umbridge introduces an endless number of Ministry decrees during her tenure at Hogwarts, Snyder manages to expel Buffy from Sunnydale High and only changes his mind after an intense conversation with Buffy's Watcher.

For this quiz, you’ll need to figure out whether it was Umbridge or Snyder who said these lines. Given the aforementioned parallels between the two characters, their dialogue is more similar than you might think. Even if you’re a diehard fan of both franchises, getting 100% will not be easy.
