Top Ten Worst Things About Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Amongst all the Harry Potter novels/movies, this is my least favorite, and here is why.

The Top Ten

1 Dolores Umbridge

Worst fictional character of all time. - ParasN2000

EEWWW I loathe this evil toad. She is a child abuser.

There is NOTHING good about this gal. She defeats the whole purpose of the magic school, attempts the Cruciatius Curse on Harry, wants to get rid of magical creatures, and leads attacks on other teachers, all while pretending she's in there for a good cause. - NuMetalManiak

She is just so shockingly evil, I wish Rowling had written her a little more complexly. - keycha1n

2 Sirius Black's death

Sirius dying and Beallitrix having the gall to gloat about it to Harry and tease him into chasing her she's emotionally hurting him Sirius was the closet thing Harry had for a father and they were going to live together but Beallitrix just had to mess everything up by killing him Snape didn't even want to kill Dumbledore he did it because he had no choice but Beallitrix killed Sirius no one told forced her to and she felt no remorse for doing so I think Sirius should have survived

This should be number one! This was the absolute worst part. And his cousin killed him! HIS PSYCHO COUSIN!

The closest living family member to Harry had died close to the end of the novel. And by his own sister too. - NuMetalManiak

3 The ignorance about Voldemort's return

Fudge was too much of a coward to so he had the gall to make Harry look bad and at the end he accepts that fact but if he had accepted Voldemort’s return earlier this whole mess would have not happened

I HATED Umbridge and Sirius' death was unnecessary and very sad, but the worst and most annoying thing was how everyone was reacting to Voldemort's return. Even Seamus was being horrible. Ugh, it was so awful. Felt so bad for Harry.

Cornelius Fudge, along with other people (especially Umbridge), flat out refuse to believe his return. - NuMetalManiak

That's what makes this book really interesting.

4 Harry getting expelled from Hogwarts

It wasn't even his fault the dementors came and tried to attack Harry and Dudley what was the ministry expecting Harry to do

He didn't get expelled for Hogwarts. He almost did, but he didn't.

All because he tried to save Dudley from the dementors. - NuMetalManiak

5 Dumbledore is forced to leave

Due to the tip-off about Dumbledore's Army, he takes responsibility and leaves. This only leads to Umbridge being the Headmistress of Hogwarts. - NuMetalManiak

6 Harry having to live with the Dursleys for one last summer

It wouldn't make sense that this magic-hating family would have Harry with them still, even if Harry had saved Dudley. - NuMetalManiak

7 Harry's visions

Harry has visions of attacks on Arthur Weasley and Sirius Black. It was stated that Voldemort had influence on these visions. - NuMetalManiak

Without those visions, Arthur (Mr. Weasley) would surely perish.

8 The Prophecy

This wasn't really explained until the end of the novel. I guess that makes it more mysterious, but the fact that what they were searching for ended up being destroyed in the battle almost made it lost. - NuMetalManiak

9 Voldemort possessing Harry to attempt to get Dumbledore to kill him
10 Harry losing his temper

Voldemort returning, puberty.

The Contenders

11 Hagrid being driven away from the school

Hagrid didn't have a whole lot to do in this novel. He of course helped the heroes, but again, Umbridge wanted him away from the school. - NuMetalManiak

12 Sirius wouldn't have died if Harry had used the mirror

YES. Harry is almost as observant as a brick wall.

No Harry was not stupid.
Sirius could've asked Harry why he was not using his mirror when they were talking when he had just seen Snape's Worst Memory. Sirius could've just mentioned it or even sent an owl.

Yes,Harry was quite stupid in not using the mirror,although I am not sure if he found the mirror before or after Sirius died.

13 Delores Umbridge Making Harry Carve "I Must Not Tell Lies" Right Into His Arm

I know that she was listed as #1 on this list, but, it was specifically this act of cruelty that was the worst thing about her. - clusium

14 Snape's Worst Memory

Thanks a lot making the fandom dumb they demonise James, Sirius and Remus.
While Snape who was Neville's boggart is suddenly greater than the three...whatever.

15 Tonks is introduced


16 Too Mean Spirited
17 Sirius not asking Harry about the Mirror when he visited him and Remus in the Floo after Harry saw Snape's Worst Memory.
18 Harry's Angstiness

Oh yeah a 15 year old. Also the Ministry not believing that Voldemort is back and others, Umbridge, scars with "I Must Not Tell Lies", life long ban from his favourite game.
Yelling at Ron and Hermione well he was stuck in the Dursley's all summer, the letters with little information he got from them when he was stuck at the Dursley's and he thought they were having fun at the Burrow he didn't even know what the Order of the Phoenix was and it had to be secretive and the fact that he is a teenager. Not that little 11 year old now.
Earlier books Voldemort was just on the back of Quirrells head and just a Horcrux the book after, in the third no Voldemort and the fourth back at the end.
Harry and Cho? first kiss wasn't the best he didn't really like it, the date well it was a year after he saw Cedric's death and it was just his first crush.

I think what made the book less enjoyable for me was all of Harry's angstiness. He yells at Ron and Hermione in the first couple chapters, loses his temper even more throughout, and complains about Dumbledore ignoring him. Add to that all the drama between him and Cho and him being kicked off the Quidditch team. Not fun times, guys, not fun times...

This is already on the list - Annabel154

19 Percy Weasley's letter

A long and annoying letter eh?

20 Educational Decrees
21 Inquisitorial Squad
22 Marietta Edgecombe

Ron Weasley's father also worked in the Ministry and he hasn't got sneak written on his face and he was attacked by Voldemort's snake.
They knew very well to make sure that Umbridge didn't know about Dumbledore's Army, they could've been expelled. So Hermione didn't need to tell them about the list.

23 Draco and Pansy as Slytherin Prefects
24 Harry's dream of Cho demanding him for chocolate frog cards and then Cho turning into Hermione who told him to give Cho his Firebolt.
25 Percy Weasley disowning his family
26 Harry's dreams
27 Snape's teaching of Occlumency
28 Umbridge was going to Crucio Harry
29 Harry, Fred and George banned from Quidditch.
