!!Voldemort



* {{Badass}}: Voldemort was hands-down one of ''the'' most powerful wizards in the series.

to:

* {{Badass}}: BadBoss: It is very clear that most of his underlings--including ideological "true believers" and even those who joined the Death Eaters just to satisfy their sadism--obey him out of abject terror; in fact, it's mentioned on more than one occasions that most of the Death Eaters only came back to Voldemort was hands-down one out of ''the'' most powerful wizards fear of what he'd do to them if he didn't. As punishment for failure, he is not above sending their children to what he thinks is certain death, or having a psychotic temper tantrum and killing whoever happens to be nearby. And he has a nasty habit of holding onto grudges. If you upset him thirteen years ago, expect him to find and kill you. [[spoiler: This comes back to bite him in the series.final book; when Bellatrix and the Malfoys have captured a facially-disfigured Harry they're too afraid to call Voldemort. If it really is Harry, Voldemort could kill him and take out the last thing standing in his way. If it turns out it's not Harry, when Voldemort got the news and arrived there's a high chance he'd kill everyone involved just for getting his hopes up.]]

* DespotismJustifiesTheMeans: There's hints throughout the series that he really doesn't give a damn about this whole "pure-blood superiority" thing; he just wants power for its own sake.



* DisproportionateRetribution:
** Voldemort once applied for the position of Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher at Hogwarts though his primary goal [[spoiler:was to hide the Ravenclaw diadem Horcrux in the Room of Requirement]]. Dumbledore rejected his application because he knew Voldemort had ulterior motives for being there and he wanted him gone. That and he figured a snake-like HumanoidAbomination that reeked of dark magic probably wouldn't be a good influence on students. Even though he had accomplished his real goal, Voldemort still felt pissed off by the rejection. [[spoiler:And that's why no Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher has ever managed to hold on to the position for more than a year after Voldemort's visit. Turns out the position really ''is'' jinxed.]]
** [[spoiler:WordOfGod later stated that, while Voldemort's death lifted the curse, Slytherin's shady reputation nonetheless stands.]]
* DoNotCallMePaul: Whatever you do, '''DON'T''' refer to him by his birth name. See BerserkButton.

* ChuckCunnighhamSyndrome: Probably the biggest example in the movies. He was possibly SparedByAdaptiation and sent back to Azkaban, yet when all Death Eaters are freed in later movies, he never appears alongside them. It is often assumed that he did get Dementor's Kiss in the movie, counting on anyone watching the movie as having read the books.

** Regarding genders and races, however, it's played more straight in the movies, especially the seventh and eight movie. It's shown there are several (unnamed) female (one of them is even an old lady) and even non-white Death Eaters. Even among Snatchers, there's at least one black man and one woman.
