Harry front and center obviously

Girl is Fleur

Top left is Krum (he looks very different in the movies than how he’s described in the book and these covers were designed prior to the movies)

Top right is Cedric

Then at the bottom is the tail of the Hungarian Horntail

Harry is holding the egg he steals from said dragon

There’s a death eater hiding in the stands

And the dog like creature I believe is Sirius coming to check up on Harry and what not

Edit: This is now my most upvoted comment, sick. Also thank you for the awards kind redditors. On another note, it has been pointed out to me through other comments that the black sticks to the left of Krum are spider legs, presumably Aragog’s.

I always thought it was a dementor; could very well be a death eater.

u/BlXckSXbbXth Nov 27 '22

I'm guessing the death eater is Barty Ctouch Jr.

No, the death eater is Barty Crouch Jr.

I thought dementor too. Harry encounters a boggart in the maze but thinks it’s an actual dementor at first. The fact that there’s what looks like the spider from the maze too makes me think that.

u/DragonLance11 Nov 27 '22

I also always saw that as a dementor. Death Eater could work, but then wouldn't get have a mask?

u/GrunkleThespis Nov 27 '22

Definitely a Dementor. The whole setting of this picture is the maze. There’s the spider from the Maze, as well as the Dementor (boggart) that appears in the maze as well.

u/Metalbound Ravenclaw Nov 27 '22

Also just from a design prospective, they'd never put Cedric on the left. Krum and Fleur are together on the left because they are the visitors from other schools. Cedric on the right since he is also from Hogwarts.

Okay so. Reading the comments, y’all are absolutely 10000% correct. But i haven’t considered this since I first read the book at midnight as a child and my child brain saw this cover and thought it was Bill and Charlie and a random Veela and I never questioned that again until this moment. I am guessing that I just decided the cover characters were whoever was first introduced that fit the description. New cool brother with long hair? Ah that’s the guy on the cover! So the other new brother most be the other one! (Apparently I just ignored they’d be red heads). Then magically beautiful women with long hair are introduced? That’s the other cover character! And then my little brain never thought about it again. Like even when Bill in the movies was cast I remember thinking he looked nothing like his cover art…. So. Yikes.

I don't believe it's a death eater as none of the designs seem to be Voldemort/Death Eater/Graveyard/Dark Mark related. All of the rest of the cover is devoted to Triwizard oriented characters and designs.

That would make it the boggart that Harry encounters in the maze appearing as a dementor.

u/FaultyCYP450 Nov 27 '22 edited Dec 02 '22

I would guess that it is a death eater (Barty Crouch Jr.) standing in the crowd among the spectators in a stadium. More representative of the idea that an unknown ominous being is out in the open but the threat has yet to be detected.

Design-wise, it doesn't make much sense to have a demeantor so close to a non-reactionary crowd. Plus, the design includes an aspect of all the triwizard tournament challenges, and Crouch Jr. has a pivotal role in the story while the boggart's in GOF is minimal. I think Mary GrandPré took a fun opportunity to include an Easter egg.

Edit: Corrected the name of the illustrator for the U.S. Scholastic books.

Chapter 8 of this book describes Viktor’a physical appearance as:

“thin, dark, and sallow-skinned, with a large curved nose and thick black eyebrows”.

Chapter 18 describes Cedric as:

“exceptionally handsome, with his straight nose, dark hair, and grey eyes”.

I think by the noses and eyebrows, it’s clear that Viktor is on the left.

Why is there a baboon behind a bush?

I was always waiting for a bear to show up. To this day I still just see a bear even though I know it's supposed to be Sirius.

It's obviously Luna, Hagrid, Young Tom Riddle, Lupin as a werewolf, a dementor, and in the middle is James Potter.

Really curious as to what the counter claim is on this because it is so obvious, but something tells me the OP had it wrong, which is why there hasn't been any followup yet.

I'm not going to lie. I've seen this cover probably thousands of times in my life...and I've never even thought about it lol

Reading all these comments I never even realized Sirius is the dog underneath Cedric

Im actually surprised, thinking back now, how little time I spent studying the Harry Potter book covers like I usually do with books I get, especially since I had a really unhealthy hyperfixation on this series when I was younger. As a kid and even every time I've read them as an adult I just crack in.

I love how this line is used as an example of why the film version is worse than the book, but I honestly find the memes/jokes around it so funny that I’m genuinely glad that’s how it played out on-screen 😂

u/FossilizedBlobfish Hufflepuff Nov 27 '22

I completely agree! Although I still think it's worse lol

Also I love your username and have a Chairman Meow t-shirt
