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 Dolores Umbridge

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

She makes the book very interesting and is my favorite character.

Worst fictional character of all time. - ParasN2000

2 Sirius Black's death

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

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

3 The ignorance about Voldemort's return

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.

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

4 Harry getting expelled from Hogwarts

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

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

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 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

13 Too Mean Spirited
14 Sirius wouldn't have died if Harry had used the mirror
15 Sirius not asking Harry about the Mirror when he visited him and Remus in the Floo after Harry saw Snape's Worst Memory.
16 Harry's Angstiness

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
