Top Ten Harry Potter Deaths that Nobody Cared About

With plenty of sad deaths in the franchise, this one is a much harder list to make.

The Top Ten

1 Scabior

For those that don't know, he's half-wizard, half-werewolf, who lead the charge past the barrier at Hogwarts. Only he dies once the wooden bridge collapses and he falls. Since nobody knows or cares who this guy even was, he's the first one on this list. - NuMetalManiak

A good number one choice, he was such a minor character must don't even remember the character - germshep24

Harry Potter has about a gazillion characters...and probably about ten memorable ones.

2 Pius Thicknesse

This is an odd one because this death doesn't happen in the books, but in the final movie. Basically Voldemort got annoyed by him then and just killed him while they waited. - NuMetalManiak

Sad...He didn't even do anything... - Ananya

3 The Basilisk

It was only put in the school by Salazar Slytherin to kill Muggleborns.
It would've been worse if Lockhart had picked up Harry's wand and then Voldemort came back more powerful, Hogwarts closed, Harry and Ron lose their memories and Vernon possibly forcing Harry into that Stonewall High with Dudley's old school uniform.

Well, obviously any large and dangerously threatening creatures in Harry Potter aren't gonna be mourned by the audience that much. The basilisk, with its "stare of death" was one of the few that basically everyone wanted dead. - NuMetalManiak

This list is kinda weird to make, no body character about the Basilisk but everyone enjoyed the Basilisk death and doesn't enjoying a death equate to being a death people cared about - germshep24

4 Bellatrix Lestrange A psychotic death eater who escaped from Azkaban, and is fiercely loyal to Voldemort. Murderer of many people such as Sirius Black, and also a sadist who drove the Longbottoms mad.

I'll bet the majority of people were really glad this crazy witch met her end. She was chaotic evil in many senses, no one really mourned her passing except maybe her closest allies, but even then, she was a character people just loved to hate. - NuMetalManiak

I really enjoyed this character although the movies didn't give her character justice, her death was a big deal, though I can forgive all the people that only know the movie - germshep24

What a wasted death - MaxBravo

Psycho - TriggerTrashKid

5 Aragog

The spider really wasn't that important at all. He had a signature scene in Chamber of Secrets when Harry and Ron met him, but wasn't seen afterwards until in Half-Blood Prince where he already died. Yeah, Hagrid had a funeral for the spider, but other than him, who really liked this thing? - NuMetalManiak

That is messed up this is one of the most touching deaths in the series only beat by major characters like Dumbledore.
I was shocked and heartbroken by his death - germshep24

Aragog Potter,you are named after the bravest spider I ever knew.He wasn’t Slytherin but that’s besides the point.

6 Nagini

Much like Aragog and the Basilisk, you really think nasty animals deserve to be mourned? Me neither. She was the last Horcrux, and of course Voldemort cared the most about her, but it was a necessary death to end the series. - NuMetalManiak

Don't think anyone cared about her death but Voldemort - germshep24

7 Quirinus Quirrell

Was he really that evil before Voldemort? Because he is a minor character we don't know much about only if there is more on the Harry Potter Wikia.
He just became a Muggle Studies teacher the year before Harry started then when Harry started he was defense Against The Dark Arts.

A pretty forgettable character that we only remember because Voldemort was connected to him, his forgettableness made the reveal really work - germshep24

Shame that he didn't get to stick around much, due to having Voldy at the back of his head and Voldy's weakness being the touch of love. His timidness was a nice touch to his character, but barely anyone cared THAT much. - NuMetalManiak

8 Igor Karkaroff

Durmstrang's headmaster being a former death eater is a nice backstory, but too bad he apparently went into exile and was later killed offscreen. Lame. - NuMetalManiak

9 Vincent Crabbe

I pretty much just forgot about him after he died

Crabbe basically ended up burning everything in a room through his own stupid use of a curse, including himself. For those that watched the movie, it was Goyle, but that's because Jaime Waylett was doing community service and they had to redo the scene differently. - NuMetalManiak

10 Frank Bryce

Framed for murdering the Muggle Riddle family when the son of the father did it. Voldemort.
People in the village still believed he did it.
He thought teenagers were messing around in the house of the Riddles and went up there to stop them but he was killed by Voldemort who was the real person in the house of the Riddles.
He was just the caretaker and gardener, and was in military service in the second world war.

The opening of Goblet of Fire saw this old man in the wrong place at the wrong time, an apparent necessary casualty to ensure Voldemort's secrecy. No one really saw him do anything interesting. - NuMetalManiak

The Contenders

11 Peter Pettigrew

He was strangled by his silver hand, for those who only watched the movies. - Cyri

12 Severus Snape Severus Snape is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. He is characterised as a person of great complexity, whose coldly sarcastic and controlled exterior conceals deep emotions and anguish.

He is overrated, James Potter is demonised because of some memories of Snape.
What about Cedric a poor 17 year old who was just killed. "Kill the spare"
Sirius Black killed in through the veil of the living and the dead.

What? This was the saddest.

13 Bathilda Bagshot
14 Moaning Myrtle

Possibly no one cared about it because we only heard it from Myrtle, and at the time it was about the Chamber

Everyone just kinda thinks,oh yeah,she’s a ghost.Appears in only two movies very briefly.Was supposed to appear in half blood prince but they scrapped it.

15 Lavender Brown

According to the Harry Potter Wikia she was killed in the Battle of Hogwarts in book and film

16 Hedwig

Poor Hedwig

17 Binky

Lavender's pet rabbit.
