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.

Uh he tried to kill Harry. And he also tried to kill Harry's parents! He is definitely not the worst person in this book. (Cough) Er Dolores Umbridge. Lord Voldemort and Dolores should get married and share a horrible life together. I ABSOLUTELY HATE YOU VOLDEMORT! Never kill anyone ever again unless it is Dolores Umbridge.

Lord Voldemort is definitely evil no kidding! He tried to kill Harry but ended up killing himself, so dumb of him, I must say. Voldemort is so bad! Think of the people he's killed! He definitely deserves every bad thing he got in the books and movies combined! he deserves every bad thing that everybody gets in the movies and books combined and stuff maybe you cannot understand what I am talking about. Who cares? I'm just saying that Voldemort deserves to be #1 on this list!

And number 1 of course goes to Lord Voldemort becauise he killed harry's parents and tried to kill Harry on every single movie, he has a ton of magis power and he is also the evil lord of the dark Lord and really injoys killing adults for fun and to relax. The Number 1 most evil Harry Potter Villain goes to VOLDEMORT.

Voldemort in books was way more scarier than movie voldemort...check the fanarts
You will not sleep...
But yeah he was a dumb villain
voldemort in reality he would have killed Harry in book 4 or 5 without thinking twice about going after the elder wand

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.

Bellatrix is demented, crazed, powerful, and absolutely-obsessed with pleasing Voldemort. She's a horrible person, yet I adore her character! Especially the way she's portrayed in the movies, like a little kid almost with her crazed antics and leaping on tables. She's just really cool, in a twisted way. Helena Bonham Carter rocks!

I have just a few words to say about Bella. She is mad. Enjoys suffering, killing, torturing and destruction. She is Voldemort but unstable and absolutely crazy! She is exactly everything I ever needed of Voldemort's number 2. I love that she is so hatable. I enjoy thinking of how she actually deserves to die. And I will not ever accept that she and Voldemort had a child. That ruins a extremely important thing about Voldemort. The friend and love thing becomes meaningless!😭 So yeah, Delphini does not exist.

Oh, she's terrible, cruel, and wild, but don't you think, she's beautiful, and has so much gut and determindness? Still, she tortured and killed some of my fave characters. If she had not tortured Hermione and Neville, and killed sweet little Dobby and Sirius, why, I'd like her a lot. I really was happy when Molly Weasley came up and killed her. Really, a normal housewife against a death eater and torture extrodinare, just because bella was threatening to kill Ginny? Wow.

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 villain that I have to hate, but I admire because she is so crazy to the point where she is lovable.

3 Dolores Umbridge

Er uh I don't really have a lot to say. But she is a beast! She also makes Harry write: "I must not tell lies" in his hand over and over again! If Harry Potter still has the mark just send the devilish woman to Azkaban! Why not Harry? Also she is just plain evil! Once I read a meme and it went like this. Lord Voldemort says: I am the most hatted person in the Harry Potter series! Then Dolores Umbridge says you must not tell lies Tom! I was laughing so hard. I hope you agree with me on his. Peace.

I think the thing that makes Umbridge such a great villain is how realistically corrupt she is. Voldemort knows he's evil, and everyone else knows it too. Umbridge presents herself as if what she is doing is right, and she dresses in fluffy pink outfits, trying to appear innocent. Meanwhile, she commits horrid acts such as forcing Harry to write with his own blood and interrogating muggle borns and stripping them of their wizard status. She's a truly awful person, and I absolutely despise her. Therefore, she is an incredibly well written-villain.

Father wizard Orford Umbridge and muggle mother Ellen Cracknell. Her younger brother was a squib. She despised her mother and brother. Ellen and her brother returned to the Muggle world, never to be heard of again freedom of the Umbridge family.
Dolores Umbridge a Slytherin student, head of House Horace Slughorn, she never got along well with Slughorn who considered her to be an "Idiotic woman" and "never liked her" She was never a prefect or head girl. Which made her feel deprived and she never truly enjoyed Hogwarts.

Ugh. This woman is basically a conglomeration of every single negative government official stereotype rolled into one person. Petty, racist, unaccepting, corrupt, incompetent, cruel, abusive...somehow she's the most hateable person in a series that contains VOLDEMORT, for Pete's sake.

4 Lucius Malfoy

First, he works for lord Voldemort! Isn't that a huge reason he is evil? He is also a Death Eater. All Death Eaters are bad. Well except for, Severus Snape. He is so ugly to I hope everyone agrees with me on these things. Peace.

I think he is a lot like Draco, and for some reason I actually found his character interesting. He is almost made to be unhuman but the scene where Voldemort takes his wand changes that and it was interesting to me for some reason.
Also he just looks like an awesome villain.

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.

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.

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.

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

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"

JK Rowling said Snape was based on her chemistry teacher.
Anyway he saved Harry's life, was one of the teachers protecting the Philosopher's Stone (Never say Sorcerer's Stone or you will get a translated copy of Tanya Grotter) actually suspected what Quirrell was up too. Think of his parents how he grew up at home. I don't hate James. Teenagers are rude.

There'a harry potter book named Deathly Hallows. The person who put his name in here doesn't know such a book actually exists.
Secondly, Snape saves Harry and co. In prisoner of azkaban and saves him from quirell in first book.. Despite all that how can someone say snape is evil

6 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 wasn't evil, though he wasn't really the best person. He did correct this at the very end and became one of my favorite characters. There is a deleted scene where he throws a wand to Harry to help him fight Voldemort, and honestly that was him redeeming himself. I am mad that the editors took it out, it would have only added three seconds to the film but it would have had a big impact.

Draco Malloy is not a villain. How can he be? He was just a jerk to Harry at school because he was jealous of him that he had true friends. Anyone here read the cursed child? Even if the cursed child was never made. How is he a villain? Just because he's a bully? His father is a death eater and forced him to be one...
He didn't kill Dumbledore in the Half Blood Prince and was never going to! In the Deathly Hallows Draco walked onto Voldemort's side only because his family were there and he was scared, plus last book his father already forced him to become a death eater. Draco is not a villain!

Draco was only nice on the first movie but other than that he bullied Harry Potter and tried to make him do bad choices as they got older such as smoking, robbing, and others.

I like the way he fight with the main characters... Especially with Hermione.. They're sweet :) And.. When he says "My father will know about this" when he is bullied but when he bullied, it's ok.

7 Gellert Grindelwald

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

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

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

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

8 Peter Pettigrew

To the person who said Peter should've been in Slytherin,

I agree with you that Pettigrew is evil and cowardly and I don't like him either but you're stereotyping Slytherin. Saying he should've been in Slytherin because he was a villain is basically saying Slytherins are all bad people and this is offensive to me because I'm a Slytherin and I'm a nice person. Professor Quirrell was evil and he was a Ravenclaw. Also Harry's son was in Slytherin in the Cursed Child book. Professor Slughorn was in Slytherin and he wasn't bad either. Why, even Merlin was in Slytherin! Just because we have a lot of Dark wizards, doesn't mean we're all Voldemort supporters!

He should've been higher. He betrayed his friends, including James, Lily, and Sirius, and killed Cedric Diggory. He should've been Slytherin. He was A, evil, and B, a coward.

Gave away the potters as their secret keeper, land sirius black in azkaban for 12 years, just for himself!

See, Pettigrew is the one that is bad! He framed Sirius! Sirius is innocent! Pettigrew sucks!

9 Rita Skeeter

She tells false things about so many people. She ruins people's reputation to save her reputation! Go Hermione for making stay in a jar her whole life. Here's the thing put her inside of Azkaban when she is in beetle form the when she changes to human form she stuck in Azkaban! YAY. Peace.

I hate this woman! She writes false things and it is not fair! Why does she listen to the Slytherins? Thank goodness Hermione captured her!

Stupid reporter that gets everything wrong!

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

10 Fenrir Greyback

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.

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

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

I hate him.
He is a monster

The Contenders
11 Quirinus Quirrell

Oh doesn't everyone know why he is evil well if you don't here's why he let Voldemort go in his body! And tried to kill Harry that's it. Peace.

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.

I have to admit, Quirrell is actually bad . . . he had Voldemort on the back of his head! Creepy!

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

12 Nagini

He is Voldemort snake. That snake tried to kill Mr. Weasley! Nagini is a very bad snake. Question who let Voldemort into their store to buy a snake? Whoever did is a dummy. Peace.

Nagini was controlled or possesed by voldemort, so I do not find her a villain because she could had been an ordinary snake if voldemort did not posses her.

And whats the best snake?

Nagini in a bikini

13 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.

Barty Crouch J.R. was a bully to Harry, Ron, Hermione, and killed his own father just because his father found out he was trying to atytack the top three friends.

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 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.

14 Gilderoy Lockhart

Oh Gilderoy Lockhart is a dummy when Harry and his friends see him they're like hi Professor Lockhart he's like oh hi did you come to get an autograph? He doesn't even listen to their comments he just start signing the papers. I hope he never gets out of there. That heeler was like oh he's such a good boy blah blah blah blah blah who cares he lost his freaking memory just because you're a heeler doesn't mean you have to be nice to your patience well at least that nice I bet you're the only Doctor who is willing to take care of him.

Though he was full of himself and a fraud, I enjoyed his character. I have broken humor and for some reason he made me laugh.
Let's also just bring light to the fact that he had a picture of himself painting a picture of himself.

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.

Lockhart is such a fraud, he copied others work and claimed it as his. Plain evil.

15 Dudley Dursley

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

Dudley is fat and ugly

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

16 Sirius Black

Sirius is not evil. Who put him on this list and I'm gonna come after whoever put them on this list he is not a bully or anything he is a sweet loving godfather it wasn't his fault that Harry's parents died he was great friends with James and Lilly. If anyone hates sirius they are evil.

Sirius is not bad! He was framed! It's all Peter Petigrew's fault! Whoever put Sirius on here shall be very sorry and regretful! Sirius is not bad! AT ALL!

Blah blah blah he's evil

Sirius is a evil bully!

17 Argus Filch

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

18 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.

19 The Werewolf Lupin

Lupin is not a villain!
Are you insane?!

Who put Lupin on here?

Your kidding me

20 Mrs. Norris

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

21 Narcissa Malfoy

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

She is not really evil

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.

Antonin Dolohov killed Lupin AND Tonks? Wow, he is horrible! Lupin and Tonks were so nice . . .

I hate him so much. He killed Lupin! But then Flitwick killed him. Go Flitwick! Go Flitwick! Go Flitwick!

He is pure evil

23 Cornelius Fudge
24 Regulus Black
25 Aragog

They were friends of Hagrid an they were trying to help Hagrid from Azkaban and what do they do try and eat them.

Because of this thingy, I am now scared of spiders. Makes me shudder and puke!
I'm sooo happy he died
