that's tough...
normally i think he is more like james, but when things become really tense, he's more like lily. obviously he looks more like james except for the green eyes.

I think Harry is a fairly good mesh of the two of them. Of course, it seems that when they got older, they were a lot alike--James became more open-minded and kind, etc. It seems the main difference between Lily and James as adults, was that James was more restless--he hated being in hiding, while Lily seemed a lot more in control. Based on that, Harry is more like James.

Great question! I've always said Harry looked like James, acted like Sirius, thought like Lily, and pushed people away like Remus, but that's just me. ^.^
That last sentence is a perfect summary of Harry's character!

I think he is more like lily in some ways, such as being caring, but like James by being fearless and on the very rare occasion, devious.

I think he is slightly more like James, but he had Lily's eyes.

I think Harry was a bit like both of them--but more like Lily. Dumbledore (in DH, The Prince's Tale) tells Snape that on the outside Harry appears to be more like his father, but in actuality his deepest nature is like his mother's.

That is a totally valid point which really doesn't have 1 answer. I think that Harry inherited his bravery from both James and Lilly because obviously thaey r both reallllllly brave. It would take a totally brave person to stand up to voldemort like they did. I think Harry is a melting pot about everything though. He got compassion and kindness from Lilly but got his loyalty and daring from James. They also both gave him a strong sense of friendship. As I said before this really doesn't have a definite answer.

since we haven't spent much time with james and lily,i don't have a clear idea.but honestly,since when have you inherited character?  how can harry get traits from someone he barely remembers?with his looks he's a little bit of both,but mostly james.

Personally, I believe Harry possesses traits and characteristics from both James and Lily.  He definitely looks a lot like James, but as they say, "has Lilly's eyes".  He's an extraordinary Quidditch player, and Seeker, like James.  However James was a little arrogant and bullied Snape around.  And Harry didn't like that.  He even had to consult Lupin about it.  I think Harry was more pure-hearted like Lily.  Although he did have conflicts with Malfoy, he didn't go out of his way to bully Malfoy.  He just mostly wanted to know what he was up to.

I think he is like both , Lily and James because he looks a lot like James but he's really caring like Lily. So, physically he is like James but personalitywise, he's like Lily.

Ur right. This is a tuffy. He is strong and brave arrogant, open minded, caring... but both his parents were like that in different ways.

i totally think he is more like james. but when you think about it, harry didn't want to be like james after he found out just how arrogant his father actually was.

Lily. Definitely. Keep in mind, he may look like James, but I don't think Harry is arrogant at all. I think his thoughts and beliefs are way more like Lily's though. Because it's our choices that show who we are, far more than our abilities.cool
