Top 10 Most Evil Harry Potter Villains

The Top Ten
1 Dolores Umbridge

To put it nicely everybody hates her more than Dumbledore. She gave Harry a second scar, tried using an unforgivable curse, and made everybody's life at Hogwarts HELL

She made students write lines, alright... with their blood! She tortured them for nothing! She was so hard-headed! If you go onto Pottermore and read about her past, she'll seem terrible. She hated both her parents, bullied all her workmates, and prejudiced and hated muggle-borns (like everyone). She even lied about her heritage, saying she was pure-blood when her mom was a muggle and brother a squib! She had power that she could have used for good, but instead used it for her own wants. At least Voldemort waited until the end of the school year to kill Harry! She tortures him during his school year!

Sorry if I used bad grammar/spelling. I'm just so frustrated at this woman! I'm usually the grammar police, who always uses perfect grammar, good spelling, and interesting words.

2 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.

Wow. He is just a terrible person. How does he be that mean. He kills Harry Potter parents and then wants to kill harry. Thank goodness Harry kills him.

Voldemort killed Harry's parents and his own parents. He and Harry fought each other so many times until deathly hallows Part 2 Harry finally killed voldemort. After a while he Injoyed killing people. He killed Cedric diggiry, Severus Snape, & Fred Weasley. He made Severus Snape work for him for a long time and made Severus Snape become a bad guy but severus Snape did become good at the really end. Voldemort made severus Snape, Bellatrix LeStrange, And Lucius Malfoy all be death eaters. Voldemort was so powerful he was really hard to kill. He had really strong, magic, powers that could not be defeated.

3 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 the Harry Potter villain I hate most of all. Most people say Umbridge is the worst villain, but I disagree. Umbridge was only ever cruel. Bellatrix is a murderer and just is as evil as Voldemort.

1) First of all, Bellatrix killed Sirius. I will never forgive her for that. Ever.
2) She killed Tonks (who's one of my favorite characters, by the way).
3) She killed Dobby.
4) She tortured Alice and Frank Longbottom to insanity.
5) She tortured Hermione.
6) She tried to kill Ginny.
7) She alienated her sister Andromeda just because Andromeda married a Muggle.
8) She's in love with Voldemort. Like... what?!

4 Peter Pettigrew

He deserves to be number 1 He betrayed all of his friend and because of it, Sirius and lupin lost their friends. Peter is a spine-less, no good, evil, low down, ratty little man who I want at the top of this list!

Peter was death eater. His friends trusted him with their lives and he went to the dark lord and told where they were hiding. So he is the 1st reason his "Best friends" died.

He betrayed his best friends by turning to the dark side. He is indirectly responsible for James' and Lily's deaths, and he helped Voldemort come back to power.

5 Fenrir Greyback

Transforms young kids werewolves and loves the taste. Transformed LUPIN which I hate the fact that he did and kills for fun even when he's not a werewolf.

Fenir Greyback is a fearsome werewolf that attacks children in hogwarts. He had a strong army to kill as many hogwarts and many other people as he could ever do. He and his pack of werewolves joined voldemort after during the second Wizzarding war. He did fight in the Battle of the astronomy tower and he became a very powerful werewolf he frightened lots of children in hogwarts school.

6 Quirinus Quirrell

Querril made voldemort back to life again so he could kill Harry for good and he made voldemort so powerful and a wicked tought guy to fight. He dicided to make voldemort real again just because he did not like Harry in his class, & he liked it that his parents died from voldemort. He did not like Lilly and James potter one bit. He worked for voldemort even though he thought voldemort was dead.

Professor Quirrell isn't evil; his body was just used and quite possibly abused by Lord Voldemort who was on a desperate search to find a human body to "enter". He found Quirrell on a sabbatical and turned him into the unlucky victim. Quirrell isn't evil.

7 Barty Crouch, Jr.

Barty crouch JR was a worker for Voldemort but he did not last that long. He tried to kill Harry, Hermione, and Ron until his father barty croutch told him not to try to kill Harry, Hermione, and Ron. So he actually killed his own father instead even though he only lasted for five or ten minutes in the movie.

Voldemort said he was his most loyal servant. He helped Voldemort come back to power, and he put Harry's name in the Goblet of Fire. He also killed his own father, and participated in the torture of Frank and Alice Longbottom.

8 Lucius Malfoy

A very slippery man, he was a big coward. He slipped the diary in Ginny Weasley's cauldron, and caused the Chamber of Secrets to be opened. He also was very mean to his house elf, Dobby, and he was one of Voldemort's most loyal supporters.

At the end Lucius may be weak, but still he didn't just Jump into action he Tried to remain calm and a calm villan is Better Then one who yells at everyone.. also he put a diary into another book without Anyone noticing, he actually GOT the prophecy (though it broke Short after)

9 Basilisk

Giant ugly snake who can kill you with 1 look directly in the eye

10 Dementors

They are creature that feast on fear and sadness. They make People relive there worst memories and use them in what is basically Alcatraz

The Contenders
11 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 was an ex-death eater, but yet he never seemed to care about Harry, only about his mother. He probably would've stayed a Death Eater if he hadn't supposedly 'loved' Lily Potter. He couldn't be nice to Harry, even though he loved Lily, because he still held a grudge against James.

He's not really a bad guy in the Deathly Hallows, he was just a little misunderstood. Sure he was a death eater but he's nice now. Well, was until (spoiler) he died at the Deathly Hallows.

I read he was based on JK Rowling's chemistry teacher.
The chemistry teacher probably had the cane and threw the blackboard duster at them. Kids were just unlucky back then probably.
Making Severus Snape in the book a nasty teacher.

12 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.

He was only mean out of jealousy. His father was very successful, and maybe he just wanted to make him proud, but Harry Potter always got the attention. He was taught from an early age to be better than everyone else, that he WAS better than everyone else. His dad was horrible, but Draco was just under a horrible influence. In the end, we saw he didn't really have the heart to kill anyone one. We realized he was human too, facing things no 16-year-old should ever face in his life. Murder... or be murdered. Draco Malfoy would be better, if only his parents were better.

13 Alecto Carrow
14 Amycus Carrow
15 Vernon Dursley

The Dursleys were so Meen and terrible to Harry. They only cared about there own son and there selves only and never anyone else even Harry, Lilly and James potter, every hogwart students, and all of Harry's teachers. Vernon and petunia tought there son Dudley how to be so horrible to Harry who was Dudley's cousin. Harry had to live with his aunt and uncle after his parents died when he was a baby. The Dursleys just did not treat Harry right and did not take care of him one bit when his parents were dead. They made a terrible rule consequence that he could not have food for a week wich was really dam horrible.

16 Gellert Grindelwald

I know he is not really in the Harry Potter books except for having a small part in the 7th and a mention in the first on Dumbeldore's chocolate frog card. However he is the second most evil wizard in the universe only after Voldemort.

17 Nagini

Nagini was never bad, she was just a cute, innocent snake that was possessed by an evil person to do bad things. She shouldn't have died in the last book and frankly, I hate Neville for killing her. If she hadn't been possessed by Voldemort, she would've just been a normal snake that would've just minded its own business and live a normal life.

Nagini is not a bad character. She was only raised by an evil man who pretended to be her so-called "friend." He bossed her around and made her do evil things, but Nagini thought those things were right. She was confused and abused, two things that should never happen to anyone, not even a snake.

18 Antonin Dolohov

He was a loyal Death Eater who broke out of Azkaban. He killed Gideon and Fabian Prewett, Molly Weasley's brothers.

19 Dudley Dursley

More like a spoilt brat.
Who gives a kid 36 presents for their birthday.
He was a bully but he was never punished by his parents which was wrong. His mum ignorant and saw him as just a baby angel and his dad egged him on.
Then he saw how horrible he was with the Dementor attack, didn't really say anything in the sixth book, seventh book he made Harry a cup of tea and thought Harry was coming with him and his parents when they had to leave their home for protection.

Fat little ungrateful brat! I wouldn't call him evil though.

20 Cornelius Fudge

He didn't believe Voldemort was back. The giants, dementors, and every evil thing came on Voldemorts side and all because he didn't listen to Harry

He refused to believe that Voldemort had returned, even though the signs were clearly there. He didn't want to believe it because it'd be harder to rule the country and there'd be chaos in the Ministry. He cared more about making his job easy than about the well-being of both wizards and muggles! He also put Harry and Dumbledore in a bad light.

He completely ignored the danger only for his and Ministry's image!

21 Rita Skeeter

She wrote so many lies about everybody I which one day Hermione put a magnifying glass and burned her alive.

Did you know skeeter is another word for mosquito?

She's not really evil, but I still hate her.

22 Salazar Slytherin
23 Augustus Rookwood

He killed Fred! He's my favorite.

24 Marjorie Dursley
25 Petunia Dursley

Dumbledore couldn't show Petunia Hogwarts because to Muggles it is a ruin. (Read Goblet of Fire)
