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.

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 because he killed Harry's parents and tried to kill Harry in every single movie. He has a ton of magical power and is also the evil lord of the Dark Lord. He really enjoys killing adults for fun and to relax.

The Number 1 most evil Harry Potter villain goes to VOLDEMORT.

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.

Oh, she's terrible, cruel, and wild, but don't you think she's beautiful and has so much guts and determination? Still, she tortured and killed some of my favorite 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 torturer extraordinaire, just because Bella was threatening to kill Ginny? Wow.

By the sound of her, she is my favorite! My mother told me all about her. She is the best! Wait, did I hear she tortured Hermione!? Amazing villain! Too bad she had to die.

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 hated 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 this. 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.

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 too. 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 inhuman, but the scene where Voldemort takes his wand changes that. 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. In fact, he teaches him how to be a bad person. He just hates people for no reason and enjoys being part of the Death Eaters.

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.

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."

J.K. 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), and actually suspected what Quirrell was up to. Think of his parents and how he grew up at home. I don't hate James. Teenagers are rude.

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

7 Gellert Grindelwald

He had the Elder Wand longer than Voldemort. My question is, 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 wizards and sought to take over the Muggles.

8 Peter Pettigrew

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

He gave away the Potters as their Secret Keeper and landed Sirius Black in Azkaban for 12 years, just for himself!

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

9 Fenrir Greyback

Hi, werewolf thing, I'm gonna blast you! 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 he is so horrible.

I hate Greyback! 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!

10 Rita Skeeter

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

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 into his body and tried to kill Harry. That's it. Peace.

This villain is very evil. Quirrell was a professor who tried to bring Voldemort back to life. He made everyone's life worse than ever before.

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

12 Nagini

He is Voldemort's 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 is cool but weird. Why does Nagini have to kill everybody?

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 Jr. was a bully to Harry, Ron, and Hermione. He killed his own father because his father found out he was trying to attack Harry and his friends.

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

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 starts signing the papers. I hope he never gets out of there.

That healer 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 healer doesn't mean you have to be that nice to your patients. I bet you're the only doctor who is willing to take care of him.

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.

16 Sirius Black
17 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.

18 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.

19 Mrs. Norris
20 The Werewolf Lupin
21 Antonin Dolohov

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!

22 Narcissa Malfoy

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

23 Cornelius Fudge
24 Regulus Black
25 Basilisk

He is only good dead. He petrified Hermione! How is someone who petrified Hermione cool? Sorry, not trying to sound like a Hermione fan. Ron is my favorite character.
