Characterize It (#2): The Wicked Witch of the West (Favorite Villain)

The Wicked Witch of the West (Favorite Villain)

This one's a hard one, mainly because I have to think about the villains in the books I've read! I guess I could go with an obvious one...

Bellatrix Lestrange FROM Harry Potter
Lord Voldemort FROM Harry Potter

Yes, both. For different reasons. I love Bellatrix because she's the villain that I love to hate. I really love her as a villain. She's ruthless, cunning, dark, independent, crazy (subjective), and all of that stuff. I don't know why, but I've just always liked her as a villain.
And of course, there's Voldie. :P What do I say about him? I enjoyed how Rowling gave him such a strong, specific background. You could see where he went wrong and what led him to become the villain that he is. (I still like Bellatrix better as a villain, but I didn't think it'd be fair to put Bellatrix and not Voldemort.)

Who's your favorite villain?


  1. Oh gosh, that's as hard as picking your favourite main character! Ah, I'm going to say Count Olaf out of A Series of Unfortunate Events. I absolutely loathed him. But then he had kind of a tragic backstory in the last book...but I still loathed him. ;)

    1. Right?! I was like, ack! Ooo, that's a good one. I never finished the series, and it's been a while since I've read it, otherwise it might have been my pick. :)

  2. Favorite villain? Yipes. That's a hard one. I'm not entirely sure. . . Technically my favorite villain comes from a book a friend of mine is writing, but I guess that doesn't count here. That one is biased anyways. I might go with what Cait said. A Series of Unfortunate Events used to be my ALL time favorite series when I was younger and it still holds a close place in my heart. So either Olaf or Snape from Harry Potter. I know he wasn't exactly a villain at the end, but he kind of always was treated like one for a lot of the books and he was really just a man who made a few wrong choices, but was really a good man. Great post!

    1. Yeah, it is hard! Ooo, that sounds awesome! Hopefully one day we will be able to use the character. ;)

      Awesome! As I said, I never finished the series and it's been a while (and Harry Potter is Harry Potter) so. I'm one of the few that isn't a fan of Snape. Hahaha! Even after the whole reveal, I don't like him and the way he treats students.

      Thank you for stopping by!

  3. I have never read a single Harry Potter book.......
