Katniss is strong, independent, and a leader. All the characteristics that she has makes her the perfect hero, but that’s the point. She doesn’t want to be a hero.
She would dominate if she were to fight Hermione in a battle. Katniss is a survivor and that’s why she will win. At a young age she was already being an adult. She was taking care of her mom and her sister.
Knowing that life isn’t full of fun and games, Katniss became smart because she needed to. Hermione is smart too, but she knows more about doing spells than the actual human world.
Katniss is a symbol of strength not only for her district but for the other districts. She has emotions just like everybody else but she doesn’t show it to the ones she loves.
Right from the beginning, you can tell that she loves her sister dearly because she stepped in to be a tribute knowing full well that it was a life sentence. She takes risks to protect what she loves. Knowing that she has to live so that she can see the ones she loves again will push her to always keep fighting.
What I’m saying is that she doesn’t hide. Hermione would have nothing if she didn’t have her wand. Hermione mostly depends on her wand but what Katniss depends on is herself and that’s what it all comes down to.
If Katniss were to disarm Hermione then the battle would be over. Katniss knows how to fight and she also knows how to win. In her world, winning is the only way to survive.
Hermione wouldn’t be able to fend for herself if she had to hide from Katniss. Katniss knows the way of the land and will be able to track Hermione anywhere she goes.
Most spells have to directly hit the target but Katniss knows how to hit targets as well. Although she has a limited source of arrows she would be smart about how she would use them.
Even if she ran out of arrows, Katniss knows how to make more so really she has an unlimited amount of resources.
It all comes down to what each girl has. Katniss has courage, strength, and agility. The ability to survive and know how to win. Hermione just has wits about puzzles, but when push comes to shove, she doesn’t know how to survive without her wand. That’s what makes Katniss the top dog.
