Top Ten Worst Death Eaters in Harry PotterNuMetalManiak Death Eaters are evil characters in Harry Potter who support the Dark Lord, but there were many that were way better than others. Here's a list of the lamest death eaters in the series. Note that I don't count some characters, like Stan Shunpike or Pius Thicknessee. They are actually Imperiused throughout their time as enemies, and not really Death Eaters.
The Top Ten
Both Vincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle had parents who were Death Eaters, and only were referred to by last name, so we're assuming that they are Crabbe Sr. and Goyle Sr. Neither of them have a lot to go by in terms of character, much like their sons. They were present during Voldemort's rebirth, but did barely anything else or were ever even mentioned. So both of them take the top spots for mostly being deadweight characters with nothing to go for. - NuMetalManiak
He's not known by any other name, but Avery was a crappy Death Eater. He basically begged for forgiveness right in front of the dark lord. He then tried to Imperius an Unspeakable to get the Prophecy, but this backfired due to him not realizing Unspeakables cannot in fact retrieve the Prophecy. So he was obviously punished for his failure and not really mentioned again. - NuMetalManiak
Not much to say about Karkaroff really. He basically was a former Death Eater turned headmaster of Durmstrang, but also during his trial he basically sells out his comrades. After Voldemort's rebirth he obviously ran away, then wound up dead at some point. - NuMetalManiak
There could have been some potential with this particular Death Eater, but he died too quickly. What happened was he was present in the Astronomy Tower conflict, but was accidentally killed by Thorfinn Rowle when he shot a killing curse aimed at Remus Lupin, instead hitting Gibbon and killing him instead. - NuMetalManiak
"I was chosen! " That pretty much sums up Malfoy as a Death Eater. He was pitiful and weak in attempting to kill Dumbledore, and never did have the stomach to be effective in the Death Eaters. He may have been chosen, but he wasn't really motivated enough. - NuMetalManiak
To think that Draco's father is as bad as he was as a Death Eater. Yes, he's perhaps the most well known Death Eater besides Bellatrix or Snape, but despite having some leading roles he never could harm Harry or his friends quite well, easily being defeated by their spells whenever they clashed wands. He then feared for his family during the last book and was quite pitiful; he's just lucky to have his whole family survive along with him in the finale. - NuMetalManiak
It's actually quite hard to think of Pettigrew as weak in the Death Eaters, especially given his connection to James Potter, Sirius Black, and Remus Lupin. He did kill Cedric Diggory and was so loyal to Voldemort to perform the ritual to bring the Dark Lord back, but when it comes to Pettigrew's true loyalty, it really is to whomever he fears the most. Somehow Voldemort knew this, even though Pettigrew stayed by his side ever since. - NuMetalManiak
For both Jugson and Nott, they participated in the Department of Mysteries battle and aren't really known by other names. They just sort of felt like dead weight Death Eaters who fell too quickly, and I'm certain neither character was even in the Order of the Phoenix movie. - NuMetalManiak
