Most Evil Harry Potter Villains

The Top Ten
1 Dolores Umbridge

Technically, the main villain is Voldemort, but sorry, this woman is PLAIN EVIL. She is not a Death Eater but she is still a evil witch.
1. She makes Harry write on a paper with his own blood. I mean, what kind of teacher does that?
2. She is anti-against half-breeds and made Lupin have no job.
3. She has hurt Hedwig and fired Trelawny. Hedwig is an OWL, and what she did (hurting Hedwig to get a letter) is like animal abuse.
4. She captures Muggle-borns. PLEASE. Like they're filthier than her.

I would like to slowly feed her to a blast-ended skrewt, Ron's suggestion was good. Maybe her being covered in stinksap while centaurs shower her with blunt arrows as she's being eaten would be good too

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.

She should be in Azkaban of what she has done by using an dark item and using the Crucio curse on an innocent student.but she is related to a death eater she is Selywn's cousin also known as Hedwig Killer.

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.

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.

Voldemort is the most evil, annoying, ugly, angry, hard hearted, noseless, etc etc creature in the book. It's hi because of this evil character of his that he is one of the top characters of the series. I think he was jealous of everyone's noses and that's why tried to kill them. Haha

Someone who can kill a baby without the slightest wince is more evil than anything Umbridge ever did. Hell, she was hesitant about using the Cruciatus Curse on Harry, which Voldemort used on his approx. a year earlier. As he used it, he enjoyed watching his victim suffer. He REVELLED in it.

Hmm... Have some sympathy... didn't know love...never knew his ran away... what was the Hat thinking, putting him in slytherin? I think harry would have gone the same way if he'd been put in slytherin...*no offense, Salazar*. I think Umbridge belongs here, in top spot... especially after her role in cursed child...

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?!

Bellatrix was EVIL. No one can say different. She helped tortured Nevile's parents and tortured Hermione, who is my favorite character in the series. She also killed Sirius and Tonks. She also killed Dobby. But I like how she stayed loyal to Voldemort.

Bellatrix LeStrange killed a lot of hogwarts and really liked voldemort and liked copying what voldemort did. She was only afraid of voldemort only even though she still liked him. She killed Harry's god father Sirius black. She frightened Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Luna, Dumbledoore, McGonnagal, Neville, Cho the weasley twins george and fred, and Hagrid.

Killed Dobby, Sirius, and nearly killed Hermione and Ginny, and she liked Voldemort. How could she be more evil? She frightened me. I was pretty happy when Molly killed her

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!

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.

He's not that evil, but he betrayed his friends and lied to them and that's all I need to hear.

I literally want to shove his metal hand down his throat.

5 Fenrir Greyback

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.

I think Greyback is more evil than Pettigrew because he wants to turn children lives into nightmares. Pettigrew is evil but he is only a supporter of Voldemort because he is a coward.

He scratched Bill Weasley, turned Remus Lupin into a werewolf and killed Lavender Brown (She may or may not have been killed).

Sometimes, Greyback scares me more than Voldemort... He usually attacks children and feeds from them... At least Voldemort doesn't bite anyone

6 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.

Lucius Malfoy tought his son Draco how to bully everyone in the hogwart school eseacially Harry. Lucius Malfoy did not kill anyone but he was a advisor for voldemort for a very long time and became a death eater. He liked helping the dark lord with many diffirent things. He helps the bad guys dicide who should be killed and who should not be.

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)

He has nice hair though

7 Professor 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.

He was a villain.
The Weasley twins threw snowballs at his turban at Christmas, Voldemort being hit by snowballs.
But I doubt Quirrell was anti-Muggles he taught Muggle Studies before Defense Against The Dark Arts.

8 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.

He tortured people, conjured the dark mark, tried to kill harry. He is very evil. He also locked Moody up for a year and made people go insane. He was put in Azkaban and chose to leave his family for Lord Voldemort.

Eevil. But, then he found the tardis and decided to go into space and make up for it by saving people. But he killed his own FATHER after torturing him.

9 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 EVIL! Snape is one of my favorites. He should not be hated at all. He is so brave and so amazing and deserves so much better than this!

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.

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.

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.

10 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.

Draco is not evil; just an annoying secondary-school pupil who has been raised by death eaters and expresses their opinions in the wrong way. I felt so sorry for him in the sixth book: he was placed under a lot of pressure by a very intimidating figure and has the most pitiful storyline in the entire series.

Draco was not evil. He was forced into his father's evil cult against his will. He was a bully, but that doesn't mean he's automatically evil. He genuinely wanted to atone for his actions and he regretted it in the end.

Aww, the Slytherin Prince! I wish I could kiss him! Draco was never evil but he WAS a spoiled, rich, greedy little British boy but he had some good in him, too. He was forced to work for the Death Eaters against his own will. I fully support him as a Slytherin

The Contenders
11 Alecto Carrow
12 Amycus Carrow
13 Uncle Vernon

He only cared for Dudley and hated Harry.
He made Dudley bully, when Dudley had a tantrum about his presents on his 11th birthday Vernon said about money like his father, calling fruit and vegetables "rabbit food".
He even bought a gun to shoot whoever entered the hut on the rock -- Fortunately it was Hagrid.
He didn't tell his wife he bought the gun.
He decided to starve Harry to death when he found out from a letter that wizards couldn't use magic outside of Hogwarts. But Harry was rescued.
Shouting out of rage because Harry said the word "Magic"

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.

Have you ever heard of this one Harry Potter theory?
Well, remember in the last book (seventh movie), how Ron was all mean and selfish because of the effects of the Horcrux? Do you also recall how Harry himself was a Horcrux? Well, maybe, just maybe, the Dursleys were only evil because they were in the presence of a Horcrux. Since Harry was leaving, Dudley became nice all of a sudden. How did that happen? Maybe the Dursleys aren't as bad as they seemed...

Philosopher's Stone - sends Harry to his cupboard for such a long time

Chamber of Secrets - Blames Harry for dropping the pudding, LOCKING HIM IN HIS ROOM

Prisoner of Azkaban - Ruins his birthday by Aunt Marge's visit, and tried to ruin Harry's life at school

Goblet of Fire - Put Harry on the same diet as Dudley when Harry didn't need the diet in the first place

Order of the Phoenix - It reaches melting point. He blames Harry for having Owls into his house when he KNOWS HARRY CANNOT CONTROL THEM COMING IN, tries to kick Harry out of the house, and I just want to demolish him

14 Antonin Dolohov

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

Who is this weirdo

15 Basilisk

Just saying- not a person...

He's just a dumb snake

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

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.

He is Evil (kind of)

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.

She was one of her master's horcruxes, & I would say was perhaps, the only one whom actually loved.

It's a snake. Snakes are evil animals, but nagini is probably a good (person?) snake, but heck she's possessed by VOLDEMORT.

18 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.

He was nice in the end

19 Cornelius Fudge

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!

20 Sirius Black

Is the Wizarding World actually real? and some have computers and think Sirius is evil.
I'll read In Search of Harry Potter by Steve Vander Ark again.
That place in Charring Cross Road seemed convincible to The Leaky Cauldron. Could that but office really be the Potters old home, and finally could that gate with a sign with "Private" written on it really be the entrance to Hogwarts.
This is just to have faith like a religion.

Are you kidding me! He's like the 100th most evil character! Have you read the end of the Prisoner of Azkaban?

It was SPOILER: Peter Pettigrew, or Scabbers, Rons pet rat. Has anyone who thinks this read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban ( Book 3 ) yet? For goodness sake

Sirius is one of the nicest guys! He was almost a father to Harry. What's going on!

21 Dementors
22 Salazar Slytherin

He made a secret chamber and had a basolisk who murdered muggleborns.

He caused murders

23 Rita Skeeter

Did you know skeeter is another word for mosquito?

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

She should be number 4, number 1 is Dolores, number 2 is Bellatrix, number 3 is Voldemort and number 4 is Rita

24 Dumbledore

dude. it's DUMBLEDORE. just hearing the name and knowing absolutely NOTHING about Harry Potter you know he's probably a good guy. He is a good guy that just doesn't always seem to do all the right things, but he's not a criminal!

He is partly responsible for Sirius's death. He put Harry with the Dursleys knowing that they hated magic. He didn't even bother teaching anything useful to Harry. I don't think he was so naive that he thought that those DADA teachers would teach him how to fight the most feared wizard of all time. I could go on and on about this actually. Long story short: he manipulates anyone and everyone to do his bidding and feels no remorse.

*facepalm* seeing Dumbledore and Harry on here
Dumbledore is NOT biased to Gryffindor...Slytherin won the house cup for seven years before Harry even knew he was a wizard. Why do YOU overreact about the house cup.
He is not raising Harry to slaughter, Harrys scar was a horcrux, he told Harry not to go looking for the Mirror of Erised again when he met Dumbledore, and guess where the mirror was and he told the students at the feast to not go to the third floor corridor.
There are many things in the earlier books that Harry was too young to learn about, do you want to scare a 11 year old with the prophecy.
Do you think he knew it was not Mad Eye Moody? Well Percy and Draco didn't think Harry and Ron were pretending to be Crabbe and Goyle.
Dumbledore didn't ask for Umbridge she was sent by the Ministry.
Dumbledore knew some of the wizards that Lockhart had cursed and decided to end everything for Lockhart sending him as a teacher.
Quirrell who had been a Muggle ...more

He never did mean harry to die... he knew harry wouldn't die if voldy cursed him.. only he didn't tell snape... also when snape said he wanted to die, he said it would be of no use because he needed snape to help protect harry... at to those idiots who say he didn't teach harry anything useful, read half- blood prince... the knowledge harry gained from Pensieve sessions wuth Dumbledore helps him to kill voldy in the end, in case you didn't notice...
