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

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

Killed Harry's parents

2 Bellatrix Lestrange 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 don't know if it is the actress who plays her, or it is her humorous craziness, but I love Bellatrix. She killed Dobby, Sirius, and tortured Hermione and I partly hate her for that. She is the type of Villian that I have to hate, but I admire because she is so crazy to the point where she is lovable.

I hate Bellatrix she is a total idiot! First she killed Sirius and then Dobby! The second I read Molly Weasley killed Bellatrix I was like Yes!

Much better than voldemort, voldemort is just power but in other sides he is very poor villain

Badass as heck

3 Dolores Umbrige

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.

Where Riddle is just evil out of fear, Umbridge is evil out of enjoyment. Far worse!

4 Severus Snape 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!

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

Snape is not a villain!

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

DRACO'S MY FAVORITE not just cause he's pretty

Malfoy was a great character in the books and movies. The stories always need a great badguy.

6 Peter Pettigrew

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

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

He is the reason Lily, Cedric and James are dead

He betrayed his friends. He was such a bastard.

7 Lucius Malfoy

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

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 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.

Idiot peace of c
Lucius is a idiot

8 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.

10 Dementors

Thinking about the thought of being kissed one is scary

They literally suck all the life out of the room.

They just basically suck out your soul

They no good

The Contenders

11 Barty Crouch Jr.

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?

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! )

He is a disgrace to HP books

13 Rita Skeeter

Stupid reporter that gets everything wrong!

She is an idiot reporter I hate her. Probably worse than Voldemort 😆

14 Dudley Dursley

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

Stupid Dudley

Dudleys just a kid that made wrong decisions and is spoiled


15 Dolores Umbridge Dolores Umbridge

Just adding the picture. Thanks - DCfnaf

Bad evil good fashion doh

16 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.

He is a big threat when Harry goes on adventures

17 Mrs. Norris

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


18 Gellert Grindelwald

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

19 Narcissa Malfoy

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

She is not really evil

20 Dolohov

Just hate him 4 killin Fred

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

He is pure evil

I loved fred you rotten basterd.
