Top 10 Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is favorite villains.
From Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling:
Dolores Umbridge- In my opinion, she is more villainous than Professor Snape. She doesn’t have any redeeming qualities and doesn’t care about the students at all.
Peter Pettigrew- He gave away the location of the Potters to Lord Voldemort, enough said.
The Dementors- They suck the souls and happiness out of people, they’re evil and scary.
Lord Voldemort- He’s ruthless and relentless in his pursuit of power, stopping at nothing to get what he wants, and even kills innocent people.
Bellatrix Lestrange- She’s pure evil, she killed her own cousin and tortured Neville’s parents with the cruciatus curse.
Lucius Malfoy- He slipped Tom Riddle’s diary into Ginny Weasley’s cauldron, he’s a death eater, and worst of all tried, but failed to get Dumbledore removed as the Headmaster of Hogwarts.
From other books:
Sauron and his all seeing eye from The Lord of the Rings- “The Eye was rimmed with fire, but was itself glazed, yellow as a cat’s, watchful and intent, and the black slit of its pupil opened on a pit, a window into nothing.” This describes why he’s a villain perfectly.
The White Witch from The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe- She turns her enemies to stone, banished Christmas and is cold hearted.
Queen of Hearts from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland- She hands out the death sentence for even the most minor of crimes. Her famous last words are “off with his head.”
Abigail William from The CrucibleI- She’s extremely manipulative, has a tendency to lie, and sends innocent people to their death by accusing them of witchcraft.
