Have you noticed how Hello Kitty and Harry Potter have been dominating the news for the past few weeks? Well, they have: Potter fans have been buzzing after a new Dark Arts area was added to the official HP Studio Tour, and JK Rowling posted a story about Hogwarts professor Delores Umbridge online last week. Meanwhile, the big dogs* at Hello Kitty just announced she's getting her own theme park next year, and Katy Perry celebrated by getting a tattoo of the cat-that-isnt-a-cat on her finger. 

In the spirit of the wizards vs cartoon takeover, we thought we'd pitch them against each other to see which one really has it in them to take over the world. Thought Hello Kitty and Harry Potter had nothing in common? Think again.

*we're kidding, there are obviously no dogs at Hello Kitty HQ.
