«Οι άθλοι είναι τρεις και θα εκτελεστούν καθ’ όλη τη διάρκεια του σχολικού έτους. Οι πρωταθλητές θα δοκιμαστούν με πολλούς και διάφορους τρόπους –οι μαγικές δυνάμεις τους, η ανδρεία τους, η αντίληψή τους και φυσικά η ικανότητά τους ν’ αντιμετωπίζουν τους κινδύνους». Το Τρίαθλο Μαγείας πρόκειται να διεξαχθεί στο Χόγκουαρτς. Στο Τρίαθλο μπορούν να συμμετέχουν μόνο μάγοι μεγαλύτεροι από δεκαεπτά ετών. Όμως αυτό δεν πτοεί το Χάρι που ονειρεύεται ότι θα νικήσει το διαγωνισμό. Έπειτα, στο Χάλοουϊν, όταν το Κύπελλο της Φωτιάς κάνει την επιλογή του, ο Χάρι βλέπει με κατάπληξη και το δικό του όνομα μεταξύ των επιλογών του μαγικού κυπέλλου. Θα αντιμετωπίσει θανατηφόρους άθλους, δράκους και σκοτεινούς μάγους, αλλά με τη βοήθεια των φίλων του, του Ρον και της Ερμιόνης, μπορεί και να τα καταφέρει –ζωντανός!
