Top 10 Harry Potter Villains

The Top Ten

1 Lord Voldemort Lord Voldemort is a fictional character and the central main antagonist in J. K. Rowling's series of Harry Potter novels. Voldemort first appeared in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, which was released in 1997.

Yep. Evil. But not as much as Umbridge. (Sorry dude)
But you are cool.

He does not have a nose people how can he smell when he threats

Voldemort the snake man
That is why he doesn't have a nose.
Look at a snake.

He is the biggest git. I am SO GLAD Harry killed him.

2 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've only read up to Order of the Pheonix, but I can already tell she's gonna be a major threat, and this list was happy to spoil that she kills Sirius.

I hate her so much! She killed Sirius and Dobby; two of my favorite characters. Although she is an interesting character.

I hate her! She kills Sirius black one of my favorite character's

I hate her but love her confident, psycho style at the same time

3 Dolores Umbridge

I think she should be at the top list.
Bellatrix is at least cool sometimes, and Voldemort has a power of evilness.
But umbridge? She isnā€™t at all powerful, and she makes me vomit! She is an Annoying pinky fat cat!

Lord Voldemort had a sad childhood and is somewhat likable as a villain. Bellatrix Lestrange is wickedly crazy and cool at the same time. Severus Snape had a hard life and tried to make things right. Draco Malfoy has grown up in a pureblood family but changes in the end. Dudley Dursley was nice in the end and was just a kid.


Have you seen those pictures with Umbrige with the caption 'Admit it, you wanted her dead more than Voldemort'? Well, it's true. She's heartless, hates kids, and overall really, really annoying. Why couldn't she have died?!

I loved the fifth book because they rebelled against her harsh rules. She was evil, mean-spirited, and harsh. Those are the best qualities a villain should have.

4 Draco Malfoy Draco Lucius Malfoy is a character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. He is a student in Harry Potter's year belonging in the Slytherin house.

draco is a bully but in half -blood prince he was crying in the bathroom

I like how moody turns Malloy into a ferret

I am crazy about Draco Malloy who ever plays him is a great actor he is evil and his my favourite player

Why is everyone writing Malloy instead of Malfoy?

5 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.

Not a villain! Read the 7th book! He saves harry multiple times. Sure he killed Dumbledore but that was planned between Snape and Dumbledore!

He is not a villain! Sure, he might of been a little rude to Harry in his years at Hogwarts, but this guy is a saviour! He should be on Top Ten Harry Potter HEROES. At the end of the first book, the trio find that Snape was actually protecting Harry! AND READ THE DEATHLY HALLOWS! Also, Snape was asked by Lily Potter to PROTECT HARRY. And Snape was so in love with Lily, he couldn't disobey her. He might still have been cruel to Harry, but he's not that bad. Including Draco, to be honest, he practically saved Harry's life in the last book because he said it wasn't Harry, and if he said he was Harry, Harry would have been killed in an instant, which none of us want to happen. Snape is a good guy! And (fact) Snape is the only "Death Eater" (I did this " because he practically turned to the good side, so he's not really a Death Eater) who can produce a Patronus Charm, because Lily, she made his life happy

Shape should not be on this list have you read the 7th book! In the first books snaps seems like a villain but he is really one of the most complex interesting characters you may ever read about he has so much depth and saves Harry so many times yet still keeping a mysterious and exiting tone that makes us all love him

I wanted him to stay as the bad guy after he killed Dumbledore.
1. Alan Rickman plays villains in movies.
2. It just said Severus, Please. -- Who knows what they were thinking at the time.
3. He was never nice to students like Harry, Ron, Hermione and Neville. See why they originally thought he was the bad guy in the first book.
4. Snape insulted James on the train just because he preferred Gryffindor over Slytherin. "Brawny not Brainy"

6 Lucius Malfoy

Lucius is a coward. Yes, he's a villain and darn right evil. But not a very good one. I didn't find him interesting at all.

Lucius Malloy is just a... Villain. I especially like the part in no2 when luscious nearly kills Harry and dobby stops him. It's cool

He is a great farther for Draco he's evil

Lucius Malfoy is a lot like his son Draco infact he teaches him how to be a bad person and just hates people for no reason and enjoys being part of the death eaters team.

7 Gellert Grindelwald

He had the Elder wand longer than Voldemort. My question, how did Dumbledore defeat Grindelwald if Grindelwald had the Elder wand?

Grindelwald killed many many wizards and sought to take over The muggers

Umm, how is he at 14? It should be
1. Grindelwald
2. Bellatrix
3. Voldemort

He killed Krum's grandfather. Krum is a great Quidditch player.

8 Peter Pettigrew

Coward, betrayer, uglydude, a stinky rat, I don't know how to bane him... He sold james and lily!

He had such good friends and he just went to the dark side.

He is the reason Lily, Cedric and James are dead

That double faced rat who was all along on the dark side

9 Quirinus Quirrell

He didn't try to make him come back to life voldemort tricked him. Some people need to read the books

This is really Voldemort sharing somebody's body. The actual villain here is Voldemort

This villain is very evil. Quarell was a professor who tried to make voldemort come back to life and he made to make everyone;s life even worse than anyone has ever had.

He is evil. He tried to make Voldemort alive

10 Rita Skeeter

A lot
Sooo much
She is a lier, coward, and a bug.

Stupid reporter that gets everything wrong!

Worst reporter in history

She is an idiot reporter I hate her. Probably worse than Voldemort šŸ˜†

The Contenders

11 Gilderoy Lockhart

Lockhart is full of himself and copies off of what other people have done, like a fraud, and even tries to erase Harry and Ron's minds.

Am I a professor?

Umm he is NOT evil for being a copy cat

Big Fraud...

12 Nagini

She is cool but evil however I don't think she knows what she does by killing people and its Lord Voldemort controlling her

And whats the best snake?


Nagini in a bikini

13 Fenrir Greyback

I hate grayback! He killed Lavender Brown (not a lot of complaints there),bit Lupin and Bill.

Hi werewolf thing I'm gonna blast u! Um fenrir is bad because obviously he is a bad werewolf on lord voldemort's side and killed a lot of students like a person I like!... Lavender Brown. Good thing he was killed or Put in Azkaban. He is not the worst villain like Tom ( Voldemort) but is so horrible.

He killed lavender brown and bit remus lupin... He is pure evil!

He is my favourite bad guy

14 Barty Crouch Jr.

He just got to be the most underrated villan ever. He tortur the longbottoms to madnes, fooled the entire school for a year, and being a great teacher in the peroses. That last one isn't really bad but really is true.

He is just very evil, killing people, torturing people, teasing people, locking people up, making people go insane, working for Voldemort, showing students the unforgivable curses.

This guy killed his own father I mean who does that?

Who neglects their son, so their son finds a friend with something in common, then says it's their son's fault and throws him in prison

He is an evil person and he is one of Lord Voldermort's biggest supporters and also killed his own father( not to mention his weird tongue flicking habit! )

15 Dudley Dursley

He was a git in the first few books BUT...he gets better though... Last book anyone?

He shoves Harry to the ground to see the snake when he could have stood by him

Dudley is fat and ugly

He is a git but he is nice in the end

16 Sirius Black

Sirius is a good man!

Sirius is a evil bully!

I love sirius

This is false information

17 Argus Filch

Argus Filch is kind of a fool at some parts but he is actually evil because he makes sirius black a very bad person in the prisoner of Azkaban and his mane goal is to just get Harry Potter and trouble and kill everyone's fantasy pets.

He's not EVIL some people are so cruel. He just doesn't like wizards because he is a squib.

Yes sometimes he does act like a villain because he always sided with dolores umbridge

He is a big threat when Harry goes on adventures

18 Mrs. Norris

She's just a cat peps! Take a chill pill!


19 The Werewolf Lupin

Lupin was really good apart from some problems

Lol you he was a Werewolf and you probably didn't listen to it

Who put Lupin on here?

Lupin is not a villain!
Are you insane?!

20 Narcissa Malfoy

She wasn't really evil. She only cared about Draco.

She is not really evil

um she is a death eater how come so low

21 Salazar Slytherin

Oh you mean when he didn't like Muggle Borns going to Hogwarts.
He built the Chamber of Secrets and put the Basilisk in there.
He is the only founder with a known heir and you know who the heir is.

One of the founders of Hogwarts? ON THIS LIST?!?!?!


22 Antonin Dolohov

Seriously, people? Do you not read the books? Fred wasn't killed by Antonin Dolohov, but Augustus Rookwood. Rookwood also killed
Molly's 2 brothers Fabian and Gideon, so that hurt even more.

Just hate him 4 killin Fred

He killed Lupin too (at least that's what I heard) :(

lupin AND tonks

23 Regulus Black

He isn't bad he destroyed a hocrux

24 Krum

I don't want to live on this planet anymore...
Ok joking, but this is ridiculous, Viktor Krum is a background character, he was cursed by Barty Crouch Jr to make sure that only Harry got to The Tri-Wizard trophy at the end of the maze.
Other than that Ron could've asked Hermione before Viktor did but Ron was on about only dating beauty queens which annoyed Hermione. (Book Hermione isn't really as pretty as Emma Watson, unless you say the Yule Ball and Weasley Wedding)
Hermione said when his fan club came when she was helping Harry in the library for the first task that they only like him because he is famous and the Wonky Faint.
He only returns again at the Weasleys wedding.
You will only understand that if you have read the books.

Actually if krum didn't take hermione to the ball Ron wouldn't gotten jealous and Ron and hermione wouldn't have gotten married

Krum well guess what he took his best friends friend dancing partner at the dance

25 Delphi Diggory

Intimidating, evil, sneaky , cunning- and very underrated. She's one of my favorite characters along with her parents

I don't know how but she is my second favourite in the cursed child
1st. Scorpius
2nd. Albus potter
3rd. Delphi

Maybe it's her evilnesseseses

Hate her how dare she try to bring voldmort back when the world is finally peaceful so what he's her dad is voldmort I don't get how she proud of him either would you be?
