->''Or perhaps in Slytherin\\
You'll make your real friends,\\
Those cunning folk use any means\\
To achieve their ends.''
-->-- '''The Sorting Hat'''

This Hogwarts House was founded by Salazar Slytherin and exemplifies ambition, cunning and resourcefulness. Its color is green and silver, its animal is the serpent, its ghost is the Bloody Baron, its Head of House is Horace Slughorn (replaced by Severus Snape between his retirement and return) and it is associated with the element of water. Slytherins have a -- not ''always'' fair -- reputation for being underhanded bigots, and their house has the reputation of producing more dark wizards than any other house.

Notable Slytherins include Tom Marvolo Riddle, Severus Snape, Lucius Malfoy, the Blacks, Draco Malfoy, Vincent Crabbe, Gregory Goyle, Horace Slughorn, and Merlin.

This Hogwarts House
the last movie adaptation).

The eldest child and only daughter of Ron Weasley and Hermione Weasley (née Granger). She has been noted to be very much like her mother
was founded by Salazar Slytherin and exemplifies ambition, cunning and resourcefulness. Its color is green and silver, its animal is the serpent, its ghost is the Bloody Baron, its Head of House is Horace Slughorn (replaced by at her age. Rose also has a close relationship with her cousin, Albus Severus Snape between his retirement and return) and it is associated with the element of water. Slytherins have a -- not ''always'' fair -- reputation for being underhanded bigots, and their house has the reputation of producing more dark wizards than any other house.

Notable Slytherins include Tom Marvolo Riddle, Severus Snape, Lucius Malfoy, the Blacks, Draco Malfoy, Vincent Crabbe, Gregory Goyle, Horace Slughorn, and Merlin.
Potter.



* AlphaBitch: Produces bitchy clique leaders like Gryffindor makes heroes.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Averted. Despite their reputations, not all Slytherins are bad.
** JK Rowling realized after ''Order of the Phoenix'' that she had yet to create an actual sympathetic Slytherin character. This led to the creation of Professor Slughorn to add more balance.
** Another (comparatively) good Slytherin is Regulus Black, Sirius' brother. Though he was originally a Death Eater, he got the heck out of Dodge once he realized just how evil Voldemort really was and subsequently [[spoiler: stole and attempted to destroy one of Voldemort's Horcruxes.]]
* AmbitionIsEvil: The former TropeNamer. Ambition, as per the Sorting Hat, is the quality that Slytherin supposedly prized among his students alongside purity of blood and cunning. By the time of the series, Slytherin only contains a bunch of pureblood elite RichBitch who live on inherited wealth, with very few of them showing genuine ambition.
* AmoralAttorney: They often do their deeds thinking of themselves and not others.
* AnimalMotifs: Sneaky, sneaky Slytherin is associated with sneaky sneaky snakes.
* BarbaricBully: Slytherin bullies tend to prefer beating the shit out of their victims, their Quidditch team is notoriously brutal, and many of past Slytherin, especially the worst generation from the 60s and 70s, go on to become Death Eaters.
* TheBeautifulElite: When they aren't described as pug-faced and inbred, the Slytherins (usually the leaders) are depicted as gorgeous aristocrats. Averted for the two most prominent Slytherins in the series, Tom Riddle and Severus Snape, who come from poor upbringings which only spur them to be even more ambitious then the spoilt pureblood kids who don't have to study hard to get anywhere.
* BiggerBad: Salazar Slytherin, being the founder of pure-blood supremacist thought which drives most of the major villains.
* BlackSheep: Salazar Slytherin was this to the other Hogwarts founders, due to his pureblood supremacist views.
%%* BlackShirt
* CombatPragmatist: How they play Quidditch. [[spoiler:They also evacuate before the Battle of Hogwarts to gather reinforcements before coming back to join the fight.]]
%%* {{Delinquents}}
* DumbMuscle: Despite being described as cunning, witty and ambitious, many Slytherins fit this trope, i.e. Crabbe, Goyle, and just about the entire Slytherin Quidditch team.
* DirtyCoward: If they're not on the side of the bad guys, they sometimes are this.
* DysfunctionJunction: Slytherins, especially during Harry's school time, are frequently the children of [[LonelyRichKid snooty high society types]], Death Eaters, psychos, murderers, and/or all of the above and many of them seem to have inherited their parents' prejudices and then you get the occasional half-blood in the house like Millicent and [[spoiler: Tom Riddle]]--it's like blood in the water.
* EnforcedColdWar: With Gryffindor.
* EvilReactionary: Pure-blood supremacist ideas are a core of Slytherin's history, and it has resulted in the decay of the house, in Harry's times, into a cesspool of elitism, bigotry, and general social regression.
* FantasticRacism: Many Slytherin characters we are introduced to have serious Pureblood biases.
* {{Flanderization}}: It's likely that Slytherin suffered an internalized version of this as a result of Voldemort's rise to power. The only major Slytherin free of interest in the Dark Arts and Blood Purity is Horace Slughorn, who comes from an earlier generation than Voldemort. Basically, Voldemort's obsession with being the Heir of Slytherin and the fact that he recruited Death Eaters from his own house and then their children after them, essentially cast a large blot on their legacy, making people believe that their extreme aspects were their core ideas.
** As a Slytherin, Slughorn prizes reaching the maximum potential of your talent and the social impact and benefit it can have on the rest of the world, showing a committment and interest in the bigger picture that other houses often lack and ironically doing more to encourage mixing of houses and building house unity than even a model of fair play like Professor [=McGonagall=].
* ForTheEvulz: What the worst of them lapse into, even if its technically not their credo.
* GondorCallsForAid: While they were the first to leave the castle during the Battle of Hogwarts (see below), Slytherins did return to help Hogwarts[[note]] accompanied by the population of Hogsmeade, the entire Order of the Phoenix, and as many other willing fighters as could be summoned in that short amount of time[[/note]] when everything started going to shit for Voldemort and the Death Eaters. One could even state that this was very in character with some of their house: why risk their lives in a fair fight when they could leave, gather their forces and return and win an unfair one?
** Then again, Slytherin gets a bad rap because of residents like [[JerkAss Malfoy]] and [[BigBad Voldemort]] so they could have been determined to prove their loyalty to Hogwarts by defending the school and break the image jerkasses have set, which leads to a more positive aspect of anambition to not be like them.
* InformedAttribute: The Hat of Slytherin house, we are told, is ambition, but with the exceptions of Snape and Tom Riddle, no one we see in Slytherin displays any genuine ambition. Slughorn, the benign TokenGoodTeammate promotes a brand of crony patronage among students and promotes inter-house unity but he's content to be TheManBehindTheMan socialite and AlmightyJanitor (a benign version of Lucius Malfoy's public profile). Slytherins likewise are the house of pureblood elites and defenders of "[[CultureJustifiesAnything wizarding pride]]". Slytherins are supposed to be cunning, witty, and ambitious but most of the canon Slytherins are [[TheBully bullies]] and DumbMuscle, whose idea of intimidation is openly attacking Gryffindor Quidditch players before a game and banking on their Head of House to bail them out.
* {{Jerkass}}: Pretty much all of the named ones except Slughorn and possibly Regulus Black.
* LesCollaborateurs: More Slytherins supported Umbridge than anyone else did -- though, like Voldemort's case, Umbridge may simply have focused on recruiting followers from her own house.
** According to Voldemort, a sizable number of Slytherins joined his army in attacking Hogwarts. The rest left with Slughorn and gathered reinforcements from across Britain in support of Harry.
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: What few Slytherins aren't complete jerks are this, and can be quite amicable as Slughorn can attest.
* NeutralNoLonger: It's implied that the majority of Slytherin simply didn't pick sides in the war, probably due to their house's enmity with the other three leaving them no safe haven if they sided against Voldemort and the children of his supporters decided to get revenge. But when push came to shove and it was clear that Voldemort was going to take or lose everything, the Slytherins spread out across Britain to gather up just ''everyone'' they could find to help fight, and then returned with [[ZergRush an army that could win purely through virtue of numbers]].
* ObviouslyEvil: Their emblem is a snake, they live in a dungeon, part of their folklore concerns their founder leaving a monster to "cleanse" Hogwarts of undesirables, and they are a group that extols underhandedness, self-centered behavior, exclusivity, and at various points in history, outright bigotry. Oh, and it was the training ground for the vast majority of the 20th Century's dark wizards. Working around the house's unpleasant image was an uphill battle, both for the fandom and for Rowling.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: The NeutralNoLonger / GondorCallsForAid. It would be great if we actually got to ''[[InformedAttribute see]]'' that happen instead it's just a vague "[[DeusExMachina Hey look! Reinforcements!]]" moment and then WordOfGod confirms in an interview that [[AWizardDidIt the Slytherins did it]].
** Probably proving that they were tired of having [[JerkAss Malfoy]] and [[BigBad Voldemort]] being the ones as attempted UrExample and they were not exactly like them.
* PragmaticVillainy: Another and highly likely reason for so many Slytherins returning to fight for Hogwarts during the final battle, in addition to loyalty to Hogwarts. Self-interest is an acknowledged Syltherin trait, and three Slytherins (Snape, Slughorn, and Black) are crucial to the fight against Voldemort throughout the series. Bottom line, a great many Slytherins probably looked at the situation, did the math, and came to the conclusion that a wizarding world run by Voldermort and his death eaters would ''not'' be in their best interests.
* TheUsualAdversaries: Most Death Eaters were educated at Hogwarts, and with one known exception, every last one of those was a Slytherin.

to:

* AlphaBitch: Produces bitchy clique leaders like Gryffindor makes heroes.
BigEater: {{Implied}}. See SweetTooth.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Averted. Despite their reputations, not all Slytherins are bad.
** JK Rowling realized after ''Order
CuteBookworm: The lego game shows Rose with a number of the Phoenix'' books in her hands, implying that she had yet ''loves'' reading.
* DatingWhatDaddyHates: Ron implies that Arthur would be less than okay with Rose marrying a pureblood like Scorpius, telling her
to create an actual sympathetic defy this trope.
* DefrostingIceQueen: She's initially rather cold toward Scorpius due to his association with Malfoy and the Death Eaters. By the end of the play, she's at least civil towards him.
* FamilyThemeNaming: Rose and Hugo, children of Ron and Hermione.
* InSeriesNickname: Her dad calls her "Rosie".
* LikeParentLikeChild: {{Lampshaded}} by her father. It's also notable that, in the books, she exhibits some of Hermione's character quirks, such as being dressed in her robes already by the time everyone shows up at King's Cross. She also sadly has inherited Ron's prejudice against the Malfoy family and
Slytherin character. This led house, to the creation of Professor Slughorn to add more balance.

Hogwarts' resident bully, despite being smaller than most other Slytherins. Is the son of an influential and filthy rich man, who used to be a Death Eater. Merely bullies Harry throughout the first few books, occasionally setting off a major plot point. Usually seen hanging around with his cronies, Crabbe and Goyle.

* AnimalMotifs: Draco has been associated with ferrets after being magically turned into one in Book 4.
* AntiVillain: Type II in Book 6 & 7. Before that, he's a ''huge'' {{Jerkass}}.
* TheAtoner: Post-Second Wizarding War. WordOfGod says Malfoy raised his son to be a better person than he was.
* BigBadWannabe: Talks a lot of tough talk, and is actually skilled, but he's also a coward. Come book 6, when he joins the Death Eaters, you can't help but [[JerkassWoobie feel sorry]] for the guy when he realizes just how out of his league he is.
* BlueBlood: Actual blood purity aside, he's descended from two of the more well-known wizarding families in Britain. He was born into the old money of the Malfoy family, but he is also a Black on his mother's side (although the glory and numbers of said house have largely faded in the last generation or two).
* BreakTheHaughty: During the first 5 books, he never passes an opportunity to insult and demean Harry and/or his friends. But in book 6, his arrogant behavior starts to get less and less prominent to the point he is even crying because of his failure to execute Voldemort's orders.
* BrilliantButLazy: A lot of things he does - in ''Half-Blood Prince'' in particular - imply that he's actually an extremely skilled young wizard that simply finds it easier to coast on his family's money and connections.
* BrokenPedestal: He comes to have this for his both his parents (his father especially), especially for his teachings of Slytherin greatness and glorification of Voldemort. He and his wife, take it upon themselves to ensure that his son isn't raised with any of his family's nonsense much to his parents' distaste. Draco came to regret his entire upbringing, much like Dudley, spent on hating Dumbledore and Harry, the same people who saved him despite mutual distaste.
* TheBully: Of the psychological kind. He is very savvy about finding BerserkButton(s) of hot-headed Gryffindors and pressing it to get a rise of out his opponents.
* ButtMonkey: In the film series, Draco's role gets greatly reduced, and a lot of the scenes kept (Hermione slugging him, getting transformed by Moody) are of him being made to look like a fool.
* CatchPhrase: "Wait 'til my father hears about this!" A BeamMeUpScotty as far as the books go, but he does say variations of this three times in the films. (And there's a fourth time when it's [[BorrowedCatchphrase said by Cormac McLaggen instead.)]]
* ClassRepresentative: He's elected as a Slytherin prefect by Book 5, as his father was before him. Almost predictably, he abuses his powers his first year. The following year, he shirks his Prefect duties among others because he's busy sort of trying to assassinate the Hogwarts headmaster.
* {{Deconstruction}}: On Pottermore, J. K. Rowling noted that Draco eventually became a TakeThat on the [[DracoInLeatherPants "bad boy"]] cliche, of which Draco is a TropeNamer. She realized that Draco had a "dark glamour" of the TroubledButCute variety, that made people (and some of his fans) idealize or downplay his real flaws. In the end, even when Draco ultimately turns out to be not as bad as he or others thought, the book doesn't present it as a full HeelFaceTurn so much as a bully facing up to the real consequences of his actions and cowardice. Draco spends the rest of his life living in regret of the phony Death Eater ideas that he was raised on but becoming in the end, simply, a better version of Lucius.
* CerebusSyndrome: His ButtMonkey status in the films serves to make his descent into true villainy and madness even more jarring in the Sixth Book and the film. Everyone, except Harry, find it hard to accept that Draco is a NotSoHarmlessVillain.
* DefeatingTheUndefeatable: Inverted. He's pushed as Harry's number one Quidditch rival, but in their head-to-head matches between Books 2 and 6, doesn't manage a single victory against him.
* DirtyCoward
* DisproportionateRetribution: He keeps bullying Harry and his friends just because Harry didn't accept his offer of friendship (even after Draco insults Ron in the process). [[{{Franchise/Pokemon}} What a kid!]]
** Possibly 'justified', as he had ''just'' turned eleven a few months before that, and had probably never heard anyone tell him 'no' in his entire life. But then again he probably wanted to "befriend" Harry for gain. Pretty much YMMV
* TheDragon: Draco is this to his family and to Slytherin's worst.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Really didn't appreciate Harry making a rude comment about his mother. It's also implied that his motivation for going to the extremes he did toward the end of the series were less because of his belief in Voldemort's ideals and more because he was afraid of what Voldemort would do to his parents if he failed.
* EvilIsNotAToy: [[spoiler:Realizes this thanks to Dumbledore at the climax of the 6th book. By the 7th book, it is fairly clear that he does not want anything to do with the Death Eaters anymore, and only remains on Voldemort's side out of fear.]]
* {{Expy}}: It's not touched on much, but there are a lot of parallels between him and Regulus Black. Both were raised in very old, pure-blood Slytherin families (actually the same family, technically - Regulus is actually Draco's first cousin, once removed through Draco's mother, Narcissa). Both parroted the pureblood supremacist ideals of their families for much of their lives. Both joined the Death Eaters at or around the age of 16 and were given special, specific assignments. Both came to realize that EvilIsNotAToy and showed a desire to back out. [[spoiler: And both have a huge part to do with Voldemort's defeat - Draco much more unknowingly.]]
* ForTheEvulz: (Similar to trolling but actually to cause major harm and to ruin others.) Malfoy's preferred method of bullying. Particularly noticeable in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban Prisoner of Azkaban]]'' where he plays up his injury from Buckbeak in order to get Hagrid sacked, and again in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Order Of The Phoenix]]'' when he taunts Harry into attacking him, resulting in Harry being thrown off the Gryffindor Quidditch team.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Choleric -- Arrogant, rude, and can be downright cruel.
* GoodParents: To his only child/son, Scorpius Hyperion Malfoy. Draco made extra sure that Scorpius didn't become like he was as a child. And he succeeded.
* GreenEyedMonster: WordOfGod on ''Pottermore'' confirms that this is part of the basis for his feelings towards Harry. He is jealous of the attention and admiration Harry receives from other students and resents that Harry is better than him at flying on a broomstick.
* HeelFaceTurn: Makes one in the final battle.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He sometimes insults Ron's mother, but can't stand to hear someone insult his.
* IAmYourOpponent: Declares this to Harry when he is made the Slytherin Seeker. Blows up in his face as he loses everytime they play each other.
* ImpliedLoveInterest: With Pansy. Although it's never outright stated they're dating, she's shown to be extremely fond of him and they go to the Yule Ball together in the fourth book. They become prefects together in Book Five, and there's a chapter in Book Six that shows Draco resting his head on Pansy's lap on the train. [[spoiler:However, this ultimately goes nowhere, since he marries Astoria Greengrass instead of her]].
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: By the end of the 6th book, Harry actually feels a bit of sympathy for Malfoy. Harry and the gang even save Malfoy in DH, quite a few times. Ron says it best: "That's the second time we've saved your life tonight, you two-faced bastard!"
* {{Irony}}: Spends most of the Second Book callously joking about the prospect of his muggle-born classmates being killed by the Basilisk. When he winds up in a tough spot himself, the only one willing to offer him a shoulder to cry on is said monster's first victim, the type of person he'd have mercilessly harassed a few books ago (and markedly ''not'' his previously preferred piece of arm candy, Pansy Parkinson). Apparently, kindness doesn't look as weak and silly when it's directed at you.
* {{Jerkass}}: For most of the series until book 6, where he becomes a JerkassWoobie.
* JerkJock: Becomes a Seeker in Book 2, which only serves to feed his already huge ego of himself.
* KarmaHoudini: For all the crap he pulled during Harry's school years, he gets no retribution. A good example is when he insulted Harry's dead mother and did not get any punishment for this, while Harry received a ban from Quidditch for punching him. Though, one could argue that being given a suicide mission from Voldemort himself with his parents' lives also on the line is enough punishment for him.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Like his dad, Lucius, Draco is arrogant, a pureblood supremacist, and uses his connections and riches to bully others into doing what he wants. [[spoiler:WordOfGod says he goes out of his way to avert this trope in his own son and succeeds.]]
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Poor Tom Felton said that little kids would sometimes run away from him if they saw him in RealLife, and though it doesn't bother him anymore, it used to hurt his feelings as a kid.
** He was sorted into Gryffindor on Pottermore.

** Earlier, [[spoiler: when he didn't tell Bellatrix that it was indeed Harry they had caught.]]
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He's the first character to use the word "mudblood", which is basically the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' equivalent of the N-word.
* PrincelyYoungMan: The SpoiledBrat type. He throws around his wealth and background like they're spells.
* PsychicBlockDefense: Rowling notes that Malfoy is a natural Occlumens, since a major part of Occlumency is the ability to suppress your emotions.
* TheResenter: Draco wants to hang out with the famous Harry Potter at the start, but gets rejected because he takes about five seconds to prove he's a [[SmugSnake haughty, mean little twit]]. He spends most of the rest of the series tormenting Harry over all the unwanted fame and attention he's getting and failing to match him in things like Quidditch. Way to spend your energy on someone you supposedly don't care about.

* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections[=/=]ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Frequently.

* ShadowArchetype:
** To Ron. They both come from old pure-blood families, but Malfoy [[FantasticRacism looks down on Muggle-borns and considers them inferior,]] while Ron is just as accepting of Muggle-borns and half-bloods as his father.
** To Harry. Both have high status in the wizarding world (albeit for different reasons), but Malfoy exploits his riches and his family name to put himself on a pedestal while Harry remains a generous HumbleHero.
* SixthRanger: In ''The Cursed Child'', he spends a significant chunk of his screentime (uh, stagetime?) helping Harry and Co. deal with the mess that Albus and Scorpius have accidentally caused.
* SmallNameBigEgo: During the first five books, Draco thinks rather highly of himself despite the fact that whenever he ''does'' have a confrontation with Harry, he loses. By the time of ''Half Blood Prince'', Draco is made into a Death Eater, and he quickly realizes he's in way over his head.
* SmugSnake: He believed himself superior to most people because of his family’s pure-blood lineage as well as great wealth and social standing.
* SpannerInTheWorks: A lucky break on his part [[spoiler:completely derailed the long-term plans of both Dumbledore ''and'' Voldemort.]]
* SpoiledBrat: Pretty much all of his negative qualities stem from his upbringing.
* StarterVillain: Acts as a foil to Harry and serves as his main adversary most of the time, since Voldemort isn't always around. It's even lampshaded sarcastically by Harry right after Voldemort comes back into the open.
--> '''Harry:''' [[DeadpanSnarker I s'pose Lord Voldemort's just a warm-up act compared to you...]]
* StellarName: He is related to the Black family through his mother, which has a tradition of naming its members after astronomical objects. As such, he is named after the Draco constellation. He also named his son Scorpius, continuing the trend.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: With his father and his son.
* ThouShaltNotKill: Despite all his negative qualities, Draco is incapable of actually killing someone. He can't do it, even if it's a direct order from Lord Voldemort, with his parents' lives in the balance.
** Though it could be debated that he probably would if he wasn't a [[DirtyCoward coward.]] Fear of [[BigBad Voldemort]] and a risk of failing could have played a factor.
** He is perfectly willing to endanger, harm and maim others though.
** After his HeelFaceTurn, he can't even bring himself to leave Crabbe (Goyle in the film) to die from a misused Fiendfyre spell, endangering his own life to try and rescue the clod.
* TookALevelInKindness:
** [[spoiler:Surprisingly. He becomes more grudgingly civil to Harry as grown-ups, in even though they're not friends.]]
** [[spoiler:Also, Draco took a level in maturity with regards to his son, Scorpius. He made sure that he didn't become another Draco.]]
* TortureTechnician: The role [[BigBad Voldemort]] gives him. Harry pities Malfoy because of this but then again he probably forgot that the Cruciatus Curse really works when used as an act of sadism. It could have been that Malfoy was simply afraid to fail Voldemort instead. Heck, he even tried to cast it on Harry in HBP. Meaning Malfoy was probably [[FridgeHorror comfortable doing it, but was terrified of Voldemort.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Green apples, in the films.
* WellDoneSonGuy: More so in the film adaptations. Draco obviously worships his father and is constantly trying to live up to his considerable reputation.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Described as having white-blond hair, and he's definitely not a good person.

to:

a pet owl.
* AntiVillain: Type II in Book 6 & 7. Before that, he's a ''huge'' {{Jerkass}}.
* TheAtoner: Post-Second Wizarding War. WordOfGod says Malfoy raised his son to be a better person than he was.
* BigBadWannabe: Talks a lot of tough talk, and is actually skilled, but he's also a coward. Come book 6, when he joins the Death Eaters, you can't help but [[JerkassWoobie feel sorry]] for the guy when he realizes just how out of his league he is.
* BlueBlood: Actual blood purity aside, he's descended from two of the more well-known wizarding families in Britain.
BrownEyes: He was born into the old money of the Malfoy family, but he is also a Black on inherited his mother's side (although the glory and numbers of said house have largely faded in the last generation or two).
bright, brown eyes.
* BreakTheHaughty: During the first 5 books, he never passes an opportunity to insult and demean Harry and/or CoolBigBro: Despite teasing his friends. But in book 6, his arrogant behavior starts to get less and less prominent to the point he is even crying because of his failure to execute Voldemort's orders.
* BrilliantButLazy: A lot of things he does - in ''Half-Blood Prince'' in particular - imply that he's actually an extremely skilled young wizard that simply finds it easier to coast on his family's money and connections.
* BrokenPedestal: He comes to have this for his both his parents (his father especially),
younger siblings, especially for Al, he shows signs of being a cool, big brother:
** In the books, James offered to share a room with Al, even though he was teasing him in the beginning.
** In the movie, James allowed Lily to take a ride on
his teachings of Slytherin greatness and glorification of Voldemort. He trolley.
* DeadGuyJunior: He's named after his paternal grandfather
and his wife, take it upon themselves father's godfather.
* TheGadfly: He seems
to ensure that be this, judging by his son isn't raised with any needling of his family's nonsense much to his parents' distaste. Draco came to regret his entire upbringing, much like Dudley, spent on hating Dumbledore and Harry, the same people who saved him despite mutual distaste.
* TheBully: Of the psychological kind. He is very savvy about finding BerserkButton(s) of hot-headed Gryffindors and pressing it to get a rise of out his opponents.
* ButtMonkey: In the film series, Draco's role gets greatly reduced, and a lot of the scenes kept (Hermione slugging him, getting transformed by Moody) are of him being made to look like a fool.
* CatchPhrase: "Wait 'til my father hears about this!" A BeamMeUpScotty as far as the books go, but he does say variations of this three times
Albus in the films. (And there's a fourth time when epilogue for the sole purpose of making him nervous. Not only about house affiliation, but it's [[BorrowedCatchphrase said by Cormac McLaggen instead.)]]
* ClassRepresentative: He's elected as a Slytherin prefect by Book 5, as his father was before him. Almost predictably, he abuses his powers his first year. The following year, he shirks his Prefect duties among others because he's busy sort of trying to assassinate the Hogwarts headmaster.
* {{Deconstruction}}: On Pottermore, J. K. Rowling noted that Draco eventually became a TakeThat on the [[DracoInLeatherPants "bad boy"]] cliche, of which Draco is a TropeNamer. She realized that Draco had a "dark glamour" of the TroubledButCute variety, that made people (and some of his fans) idealize or downplay his real flaws. In the end, even when Draco ultimately turns out to be not as bad as he or others thought, the book doesn't present it as a full HeelFaceTurn so much as a bully facing up to the real consequences of his actions and cowardice. Draco spends the rest of his life living in regret of the phony Death Eater ideas that he was raised on but becoming in the end, simply, a better version of Lucius.
* CerebusSyndrome: His ButtMonkey status in the films serves to make his descent into true villainy and madness even more jarring in the Sixth Book and the film. Everyone, except Harry, find it hard to accept that Draco is a NotSoHarmlessVillain.
* DefeatingTheUndefeatable: Inverted. He's pushed as Harry's number one Quidditch rival, but in their head-to-head matches between Books 2 and 6, doesn't manage a single victory against him.
* DirtyCoward
* DisproportionateRetribution: He keeps bullying Harry and his friends just because Harry didn't accept his offer of friendship (even after Draco insults Ron in the process). [[{{Franchise/Pokemon}} What a kid!]]
** Possibly 'justified', as he had ''just'' turned eleven a few months before that, and had probably never heard anyone tell him 'no' in his entire life. But then again he probably wanted to "befriend" Harry for gain. Pretty much YMMV
* TheDragon: Draco is this to his family and to Slytherin's worst.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Really didn't appreciate Harry making a rude comment about his mother. It's
also implied that his motivation he might have been telling Albus that Rose couldn't come to Hogwarts for going some reason (e.g. she'd turned out to be a Squib or something), as Albus is mentioned as looking 'immensely relieved' to see her in the extremes he did toward epilogue.
* IdenticalGrandson: Has been described to acquire
the end of the series were less because looks and character traits of his belief in Voldemort's ideals and more because paternal grandfather.
* MessyHair: Like father, like son.
* MouthyKid: But
he was afraid of what does clam up when he spots his mom's DeathGlare.
* {{Retgone}}: [[spoiler:In the world where
Voldemort would do to his parents if he failed.
* EvilIsNotAToy: [[spoiler:Realizes this thanks to Dumbledore at
rules the climax of the 6th book. By the 7th book, it is fairly clear that world, he does was not want anything born due to do with the Death Eaters anymore, and only remains on Voldemort's side out of fear.Harry dying in 1998.]]
* {{Expy}}: SpiritualSuccessor: It's not touched on much, but there are a lot of parallels between him implied he's one to the Marauders and Regulus Black. Both were raised in very old, pure-blood Slytherin families (actually the same family, technically - Regulus is actually Draco's first cousin, once removed through Draco's mother, Narcissa). Both parroted the pureblood supremacist ideals of their families for much of their lives. Both joined the Death Eaters at or around the age of 16 and were given special, specific assignments. Both came to realize that EvilIsNotAToy and showed a desire to back out. [[spoiler: And both have a huge part to do with Voldemort's defeat - Draco much more unknowingly.]]
* ForTheEvulz: (Similar to trolling but actually to cause major harm and to ruin others.) Malfoy's preferred method of bullying. Particularly noticeable in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban Prisoner of Azkaban]]'' where he plays up his injury from Buckbeak in order to get Hagrid sacked, and again in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Order Of The Phoenix]]'' when he taunts Harry into attacking him, resulting in Harry
Weasley twins. Among other things (like being thrown off named for two of the Gryffindor Quidditch team.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Choleric -- Arrogant, rude, and can be downright cruel.
* GoodParents: To his only child/son, Scorpius Hyperion Malfoy. Draco made extra sure that Scorpius didn't become like he was as a child. And he succeeded.
* GreenEyedMonster:
Marauders, for example), WordOfGod on ''Pottermore'' confirms reveals that this is part of he (like the basis for his feelings towards Harry. He is jealous of twins before him) stole the attention and admiration Harry receives from other students and resents that Harry is better than him at flying on a broomstick.
* HeelFaceTurn: Makes one in the final battle.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He sometimes insults Ron's mother, but can't stand to hear someone insult his.
* IAmYourOpponent: Declares this to Harry when he is made the Slytherin Seeker. Blows up in his face as he loses everytime they play each other.
* ImpliedLoveInterest: With Pansy. Although it's never outright stated they're dating, she's shown to be extremely fond of him and they go to the Yule Ball together in the fourth book. They become prefects together in Book Five, and there's a chapter in Book Six that shows Draco resting his head on Pansy's lap on the train. [[spoiler:However, this ultimately goes nowhere, since he marries Astoria Greengrass instead of her]].
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: By the end of the 6th book, Harry actually feels a bit of sympathy for Malfoy. Harry and the gang even save Malfoy in DH, quite a few times. Ron says it best: "That's the second time we've saved your life tonight, you two-faced bastard!"
* {{Irony}}: Spends most of the Second Book callously joking about the prospect of his muggle-born classmates being killed by the Basilisk. When he winds up in a tough spot himself, the only one willing to offer him a shoulder to cry on is said monster's first victim, the type of person he'd have mercilessly harassed a few books ago (and markedly ''not'' his previously preferred piece of arm candy, Pansy Parkinson). Apparently, kindness doesn't look as weak and silly when it's directed at you.
* {{Jerkass}}: For most of the series until book 6, where he becomes a JerkassWoobie.
* JerkJock: Becomes a Seeker in Book 2, which only serves to feed his already huge ego of himself.
* KarmaHoudini: For all the crap he pulled during Harry's school years, he gets no retribution. A good example is when he insulted Harry's dead mother and did not get any punishment for this, while Harry received a ban from Quidditch for punching him. Though, one could argue that being given a suicide mission from Voldemort himself with his parents' lives also on the line is enough punishment for him.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Like his dad, Lucius, Draco is arrogant, a pureblood supremacist, and uses his connections and riches to bully others into doing what he wants. [[spoiler:WordOfGod says he goes out of his way to avert this trope in his own son and succeeds.]]

This Hogwarts House was founded by Salazar
Slytherin in Harry's year, described as arrogant and always insulting anyone she pleases to. She is Draco Malfoy's girlfriend for most of the series, exemplifies ambition, cunning and resourcefulness. Its color is in many ways the female version of Draco. But just before the battle of Hogwarts, she suggests the Hogwarts students betray Harry Potter to Voldemort, so she green and silver, its animal is the first student to be evacuated.serpent, its ghost is the Bloody Baron, its Head of House is Horace Slughorn (replaced by Severus Snape between his retirement and return) and it is associated with the element of water. Slytherins have a -- not ''always'' fair -- reputation for being underhanded bigots, and their house has the reputation of producing more dark wizards than any other house.

Notable Slytherins include Tom Marvolo Riddle, Severus Snape, Lucius Malfoy, the Blacks, Draco Malfoy, Vincent Crabbe, Gregory Goyle, Horace Slughorn, and Merlin.



* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Does not have a pug face (see below) in the films.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Pansy seemed to be quite fond of [[{{Jerkass}} Draco]] [[JerkJock Malfoy.]]
* AlliterativeName: Both her first and last name start with "P".
* AlphaBitch: [[WordOfGod Word of Rowling]] states that Pansy is an amalgamation of every girl who's ever teased her in school. It certainly shows.
* AnimalMotifs: Is said to have a face like a pug.
* DirtyCoward: When Voldemort delivers an ultimatum to Hogwarts in Book 7 to either surrender Harry or face a massive siege, she's more than ready to turn him in.
* EvilCounterpart: To Ginny and Hermione.
** Pansy seems to be considered Hermione's "show", as Malfoy is Harry's "show". Ultimately, Pansy is Hermione's ArchEnemy and not Harry's. Harry and Pansy never really even interact with each other, though she does hurl taunts at him.

* FloralThemeNaming: A pansy is a type of violet.
* GirlPosse: She has one, though the other members are never named.

We are never really given an unbiased opinion of her looks in the books, however Draco (who is known to be a snob) seems to find her attractive. All three of the actresses who portray her in the films are very pretty.
** Similarly we are told by Hermione that Pansy isn't particularly smart, however she was never stated to do poorly in class and was even appointed Slytherin prefect.

* TheQuisling: Is the only student to suggest that Hogwarts should turn Harry over to Voldemort.
* RichBitch: It's never confirmed how wealthy her family is, but she certainly acts like she belongs in this category.
* TheRival: To Hermione. The two seem to have a similar (though less intense) relationship that Harry and Draco have.
* RomanticRunnerUp: Pansy was often {{ship tease}}d with Draco and they even went to the Yule Ball together. [[spoiler:However, he ended up marrying Astoria Greengrass.]]
* ShipTease: With Draco, who she seems to have a crush on. [[spoiler:It doesn't go anywhere]].
* VillainousCheekbones: When played by Creator/ScarlettByrne - also plays into AdaptationalAttractiveness due to the fact that Scarlett (and Genevieve or Lauren for that matter) are actually quite lovely in RealLife.

* ShipTease: With Draco, who she seems DumbMuscle: Despite being described as cunning, witty and ambitious, many Slytherins fit this trope, i.e. Crabbe, Goyle, and just about the entire Slytherin Quidditch team.
* DirtyCoward: If they're not on the side of the bad guys, they sometimes are this.
* DysfunctionJunction: Slytherins, especially during Harry's school time, are frequently the children of [[LonelyRichKid snooty high society types]], Death Eaters, psychos, murderers, and/or all of the above and many of them seem
to have inherited their parents' prejudices and then you get the occasional half-blood in the house like Millicent and [[spoiler: Tom Riddle]]--it's like blood in the water.

* EvilReactionary: Pure-blood supremacist ideas are

* VillainousCheekbones: When played by Creator/ScarlettByrne - also plays
core of Slytherin's history, and it has resulted in the decay of the house, in Harry's times, into AdaptationalAttractiveness due a cesspool of elitism, bigotry, and general social regression.
* FantasticRacism: Many Slytherin characters we are introduced
to have serious Pureblood biases.
* {{Flanderization}}: It's likely that Slytherin suffered an internalized version of this as a result of Voldemort's rise to power. The only major Slytherin free of interest in the Dark Arts and Blood Purity is Horace Slughorn, who comes from an earlier generation than Voldemort. Basically, Voldemort's obsession with being the Heir of Slytherin and
the fact that Scarlett (and Genevieve or Lauren for he recruited Death Eaters from his own house and then their children after them, essentially cast a large blot on their legacy, making people believe that matter) their extreme aspects were their core ideas.
** As a Slytherin, Slughorn prizes reaching the maximum potential of your talent and the social impact and benefit it can have on the rest of the world, showing a committment and interest in the bigger picture that other houses often lack and ironically doing more to encourage mixing of houses and building house unity than even a model of fair play like Professor [=McGonagall=].
* ForTheEvulz: What the worst of them lapse into, even if its technically not their credo.
* GondorCallsForAid: While they were the first to leave the castle during the Battle of Hogwarts (see below), Slytherins did return to help Hogwarts[[note]] accompanied by the population of Hogsmeade, the entire Order of the Phoenix, and as many other willing fighters as could be summoned in that short amount of time[[/note]] when everything started going to shit for Voldemort and the Death Eaters. One could even state that this was very in character with some of their house: why risk their lives in a fair fight when they could leave, gather their forces and return and win an unfair one?
** Then again, Slytherin gets a bad rap because of residents like [[JerkAss Malfoy]] and [[BigBad Voldemort]] so they could have been determined to prove their loyalty to Hogwarts by defending the school and break the image jerkasses have set, which leads to a more positive aspect of anambition to not be like them.
* InformedAttribute: The Hat of Slytherin house, we
are told, is ambition, but with the exceptions of Snape and Tom Riddle, no one we see in Slytherin displays any genuine ambition. Slughorn, the benign TokenGoodTeammate promotes a brand of crony patronage among students and promotes inter-house unity but he's content to be TheManBehindTheMan socialite and AlmightyJanitor (a benign version of Lucius Malfoy's public profile). Slytherins likewise are the house of pureblood elites and defenders of "[[CultureJustifiesAnything wizarding pride]]". Slytherins are supposed to be cunning, witty, and ambitious but most of the canon Slytherins are [[TheBully bullies]] and DumbMuscle, whose idea of intimidation is openly attacking Gryffindor Quidditch players before a game and banking on their Head of House to bail them out.
* {{Jerkass}}: Pretty much all of the named ones except Slughorn and possibly Regulus Black.
* LesCollaborateurs: More Slytherins supported Umbridge than anyone else did -- though, like Voldemort's case, Umbridge may simply have focused on recruiting followers from her own house.
** According to Voldemort, a sizable number of Slytherins joined his army in attacking Hogwarts. The rest left with Slughorn and gathered reinforcements from across Britain in support of Harry.
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: What few Slytherins aren't complete jerks are this, and can be quite amicable as Slughorn can attest.
* NeutralNoLonger: It's implied that the majority of Slytherin simply didn't pick sides in the war, probably due to their house's enmity with the other three leaving them no safe haven if they sided against Voldemort and the children of his supporters decided to get revenge. But when push came to shove and it was clear that Voldemort was going to take or lose everything, the Slytherins spread out across Britain to gather up just ''everyone'' they could find to help fight, and then returned with [[ZergRush an army that could win purely through virtue of numbers]].
* ObviouslyEvil: Their emblem is a snake, they live in a dungeon, part of their folklore concerns their founder leaving a monster to "cleanse" Hogwarts of undesirables, and they are a group that extols underhandedness, self-centered behavior, exclusivity, and at various points in history, outright bigotry. Oh, and it was the training ground for the vast majority of the 20th Century's dark wizards. Working around the house's unpleasant image was an uphill battle, both for the fandom and for Rowling.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: The NeutralNoLonger / GondorCallsForAid. It would be great if we
actually quite lovely got to ''[[InformedAttribute see]]'' that happen instead it's just a vague "[[DeusExMachina Hey look! Reinforcements!]]" moment and then WordOfGod confirms in RealLife.an interview that [[AWizardDidIt the Slytherins did it]].
** Probably proving that they were tired of having [[JerkAss Malfoy]] and [[BigBad Voldemort]] being the ones as attempted UrExample and they were not exactly like them.
* PragmaticVillainy: Another and highly likely reason for so many Slytherins returning to fight for Hogwarts during the final battle, in addition to loyalty to Hogwarts. Self-interest is an acknowledged Syltherin trait, and three Slytherins (Snape, Slughorn, and Black) are crucial to the fight against Voldemort throughout the series. Bottom line, a great many Slytherins probably looked at the situation, did the math, and came to the conclusion that a wizarding world run by Voldermort and his death eaters would ''not'' be in their best interests.
* TheUsualAdversaries: Most Death Eaters were educated at Hogwarts, and with one known exception, every last one of those was a Slytherin.

However, rather than condemning Blaise to a fiery death, screenwriter Steve Kloves conferred Crabbe's actions and demise onto Goyle instead, so Blaise gets away alive as Goyle did in the book.]]
* TheBeautifulElite: The most aristocratic of Malfoy's group. While Malfoy can be prone to sniveling, and Crabbe and Goyle are just DumbMuscle, Blaise has the looks, the snobbery, and the withdrawn temperament to fit the Slytherin ideal.
* ChekhovsGunman: Actually subverted, in an uncharacteristic move for Rowling. After his EarlyBirdCameo in ''Stone'' (see below), Blaise was shelved until ''Prince'', whereupon he was given a very rich, detailed introduction aboard the train as a friend but no lackey to Malfoy. The seasoned HP reader knows to expect from that kind of intro that Rowling's got something important lined up for the character, but not in this case: Blaise makes no particular contribution to the plot, and all but disappears from the series halfway through ''Prince''. In retrospect, it's clear that the only reason Rowling pulled Blaise out of the woodwork was that she wanted a Slytherin in the Slug Club (and she'd rejected the obvious choice, Malfoy, since it was to be a point of sympathy for Slughorn that he treated Malfoy with pleasant indifference). Alas, filling a narrative niche is not the same thing as adding to the plot, and Blaise never quite donned the holster and joined Rowling's stable of Chekhov's Gunmen.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Blaise is mentioned as the last new Hogwarts student to be sorted in 1991.
* FantasticRacism: He seems to believe in pure-blood supremacy. Though it should be noted that he also views a lot of fellow pure-blood supremacists with distain.

Creator/TomFelton (films), Alex Price (''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'', first West End run)

->''"I'd be careful if I were you, Potter. Unless you're a bit politer, you'll go the same way as your parents. They didn't know what was good for them, either. You hang around with riff-raff like the Weasleys and that Hagrid and it'll rub off on you."''

Hogwarts' resident bully, despite being smaller than most other Slytherins. Is the son
of an influential and filthy rich man, who used to be a Death Eater. Merely bullies Harry throughout the first few books, occasionally setting off a major plot point. Usually seen hanging around with his cronies, Crabbe and Goyle.

By the sixth book, things have taken a major turn: the newly-resurrected Lord Voldemort demands that Draco assassinate Albus Dumbledore, or die in the process (which is what he's probably hoping for, according to
Draco's gang per se mother). Draco's mother, in desperation, goes to the ReverseMole Snape and begs him to forge an Unbreakable Vow so that he would kill Dumbledore if Draco could not. Sure enough, Snape is the one who does the deed.

By the last book, he appears in the Room of Requirement with his cronies to stop Harry, Ron, and Hermione from... whatever it is they're doing (The Trio is finding the last Horcrux,
but apparently quite intimidating Draco and company don't know it). One of his cronies turns on him and unleashes a [[{{Hellfire}} Fiendfyre]] that ends up incinerating the whole room and killing himself. Harry goes and saves Draco anyhow, which in her turn saves his own right.ass later on. Nineteen years later, Draco is married (but to Astoria Greengrass, not to his marginal school love interest Pansy Parkinson) and has a son, [[AwesomeMcCoolname Scorpius Hyperion Malfoy]].



* BrawnHilda: Described as large and square with a heavy jaw and rather hag-like.
* CombatPragmatist: She's [[DesignatedGirlFight paired with Hermione in the Dueling Club scene]] in ''Chamber of Secrets'', and when the dust settles after the first round, she's forgone magic and has Hermione in a headlock.
* DistaffCounterpart: Sort of a female version of Crabbe and Goyle.
* HugeSchoolgirl: Is said to be taller than Harry and larger in general than a lot of other students.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: She's part of the Inquisitorial Squad in ''Order of the Phoenix'', but doesn't feature in the Death-Eater-fication of Slytherin in the last two books.

to:

* BrawnHilda: Described as large and square AnimalMotifs: Draco has been associated with ferrets after being magically turned into one in Book 4.
* AntiVillain: Type II in Book 6 & 7. Before that, he's
a heavy jaw ''huge'' {{Jerkass}}.
* TheAtoner: Post-Second Wizarding War. WordOfGod says Malfoy raised his son to be a better person than he was.
* BigBadWannabe: Talks a lot of tough talk,
and rather hag-like.is actually skilled, but he's also a coward. Come book 6, when he joins the Death Eaters, you can't help but [[JerkassWoobie feel sorry]] for the guy when he realizes just how out of his league he is.
* BlueBlood: Actual blood purity aside, he's descended from two of the more well-known wizarding families in Britain. He was born into the old money of the Malfoy family, but he is also a Black on his mother's side (although the glory and numbers of said house have largely faded in the last generation or two).
* BreakTheHaughty: During the first 5 books, he never passes an opportunity to insult and demean Harry and/or his friends. But in book 6, his arrogant behavior starts to get less and less prominent to the point he is even crying because of his failure to execute Voldemort's orders.
* BrilliantButLazy: A lot of things he does - in ''Half-Blood Prince'' in particular - imply that he's actually an extremely skilled young wizard that simply finds it easier to coast on his family's money and connections.
* BrokenPedestal: He comes to have this for his both his parents (his father especially), especially for his teachings of Slytherin greatness and glorification of Voldemort. He and his wife, take it upon themselves to ensure that his son isn't raised with any of his family's nonsense much to his parents' distaste. Draco came to regret his entire upbringing, much like Dudley, spent on hating Dumbledore and Harry, the same people who saved him despite mutual distaste.
* TheBully: Of the psychological kind. He is very savvy about finding BerserkButton(s) of hot-headed Gryffindors and pressing it to get a rise of out his opponents.
* ButtMonkey: In the film series, Draco's role gets greatly reduced, and a lot of the scenes kept (Hermione slugging him, getting transformed by Moody) are of him being made to look like a fool.
* CatchPhrase: "Wait 'til my father hears about this!" A BeamMeUpScotty as far as the books go, but he does say variations of this three times in the films. (And there's a fourth time when it's [[BorrowedCatchphrase said by Cormac McLaggen instead.)]]
* ClassRepresentative: He's elected as a Slytherin prefect by Book 5, as his father was before him. Almost predictably, he abuses his powers his first year. The following year, he shirks his Prefect duties among others because he's busy sort of trying to assassinate the Hogwarts headmaster.
* {{Deconstruction}}: On Pottermore, J. K. Rowling noted that Draco eventually became a TakeThat on the [[DracoInLeatherPants "bad boy"]] cliche, of which Draco is a TropeNamer. She realized that Draco had a "dark glamour" of the TroubledButCute variety, that made people (and some of his fans) idealize or downplay his real flaws. In the end, even when Draco ultimately turns out to be not as bad as he or others thought, the book doesn't present it as a full HeelFaceTurn so much as a bully facing up to the real consequences of his actions and cowardice. Draco spends the rest of his life living in regret of the phony Death Eater ideas that he was raised on but becoming in the end, simply, a better version of Lucius.

* CombatPragmatist: She's [[DesignatedGirlFight paired with Hermione CerebusSyndrome: His ButtMonkey status in the Dueling Club scene]] in ''Chamber of Secrets'', films serves to make his descent into true villainy and when madness even more jarring in the dust settles Sixth Book and the film. Everyone, except Harry, find it hard to accept that Draco is a NotSoHarmlessVillain.
* DefeatingTheUndefeatable: Inverted. He's pushed as Harry's number one Quidditch rival, but in their head-to-head matches between Books 2 and 6, doesn't manage a single victory against him.
* DirtyCoward
* DisproportionateRetribution: He keeps bullying Harry and his friends just because Harry didn't accept his offer of friendship (even
after Draco insults Ron in the process). [[{{Franchise/Pokemon}} What a kid!]]
** Possibly 'justified', as he had ''just'' turned eleven a few months before that, and had probably never heard anyone tell him 'no' in his entire life. But then again he probably wanted to "befriend" Harry for gain. Pretty much YMMV
* TheDragon: Draco is this to his family and to Slytherin's worst.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Really didn't appreciate Harry making a rude comment about his mother. It's also implied that his motivation for going to the extremes he did toward the end of the series were less because of his belief in Voldemort's ideals and more because he was afraid of what Voldemort would do to his parents if he failed.
* EvilIsNotAToy: [[spoiler:Realizes this thanks to Dumbledore at the climax of the 6th book. By the 7th book, it is fairly clear that he does not want anything to do with the Death Eaters anymore, and only remains on Voldemort's side out of fear.]]
* {{Expy}}: It's not touched on much, but there are a lot of parallels between him and Regulus Black. Both were raised in very old, pure-blood Slytherin families (actually the same family, technically - Regulus is actually Draco's
first round, she's forgone magic cousin, once removed through Draco's mother, Narcissa). Both parroted the pureblood supremacist ideals of their families for much of their lives. Both joined the Death Eaters at or around the age of 16 and has Hermione in a headlock.
* DistaffCounterpart: Sort of a female version of Crabbe
were given special, specific assignments. Both came to realize that EvilIsNotAToy and Goyle.showed a desire to back out. [[spoiler: And both have a huge part to do with Voldemort's defeat - Draco much more unknowingly.]]
* ForTheEvulz: (Similar to trolling but actually to cause major harm and to ruin others.) Malfoy's preferred method of bullying. Particularly noticeable in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban Prisoner of Azkaban]]'' where he plays up his injury from Buckbeak in order to get Hagrid sacked, and again in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Order Of The Phoenix]]'' when he taunts Harry into attacking him, resulting in Harry being thrown off the Gryffindor Quidditch team.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Choleric -- Arrogant, rude, and can be downright cruel.
* GoodParents: To his only child/son, Scorpius Hyperion Malfoy. Draco made extra sure that Scorpius didn't become like he was as a child. And he succeeded.
* GreenEyedMonster: WordOfGod on ''Pottermore'' confirms that this is part of the basis for his feelings towards Harry. He is jealous of the attention and admiration Harry receives from other students and resents that Harry is better than him at flying on a broomstick.

* HugeSchoolgirl: Is said HeelFaceTurn: Makes one in the final battle.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He sometimes insults Ron's mother, but can't stand to hear someone insult his.
* IAmYourOpponent: Declares this to Harry when he is made the Slytherin Seeker. Blows up in his face as he loses everytime they play each other.
* ImpliedLoveInterest: With Pansy. Although it's never outright stated they're dating, she's shown
to be taller than extremely fond of him and they go to the Yule Ball together in the fourth book. They become prefects together in Book Five, and there's a chapter in Book Six that shows Draco resting his head on Pansy's lap on the train. [[spoiler:However, this ultimately goes nowhere, since he marries Astoria Greengrass instead of her]].
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: By the end of the 6th book, Harry actually feels a bit of sympathy for Malfoy.
Harry and larger the gang even save Malfoy in general than DH, quite a lot of other students.
few times. Ron says it best: "That's the second time we've saved your life tonight, you two-faced bastard!"
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: She's part {{Irony}}: Spends most of the Inquisitorial Squad in ''Order of Second Book callously joking about the Phoenix'', but prospect of his muggle-born classmates being killed by the Basilisk. When he winds up in a tough spot himself, the only one willing to offer him a shoulder to cry on is said monster's first victim, the type of person he'd have mercilessly harassed a few books ago (and markedly ''not'' his previously preferred piece of arm candy, Pansy Parkinson). Apparently, kindness doesn't feature look as weak and silly when it's directed at you.
* {{Jerkass}}: For most of the series until book 6, where he becomes a JerkassWoobie.
* JerkJock: Becomes a Seeker in Book 2, which only serves to feed his already huge ego of himself.
* KarmaHoudini: For all the crap he pulled during Harry's school years, he gets no retribution. A good example is when he insulted Harry's dead mother and did not get any punishment for this, while Harry received a ban from Quidditch for punching him. Though, one could argue that being given a suicide mission from Voldemort himself with his parents' lives also on the line is enough punishment for him.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Like his dad, Lucius, Draco is arrogant, a pureblood supremacist, and uses his connections and riches to bully others into doing what he wants. [[spoiler:WordOfGod says he goes out of his way to avert this trope in his own son and succeeds.]]
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Poor Tom Felton said that little kids would sometimes run away from him if they saw him in RealLife, and though it doesn't bother him anymore, it used to hurt his feelings as a kid.
** He was sorted into Gryffindor on Pottermore.
* MinorInjuryOverreaction: More than once in ''Prisoner of Azkaban''.
* MoralityPet: His parents genuinely love their son.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: His whole family has this going for them.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain He is responsible for the Death Eater incursion in HBP. Despite the chance that it would fail and the stress the plan gave him, it is unknown if he even regretted it at the time. Until Voldemort found other uses for him.
* OldMoney: The Malfoys, being the series' most visible {{Blue Blood}}s, have also been fabulously rich for generations and [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections have connections]]
in the Death-Eater-fication highest echelons of Slytherin government, business, and high society.
* OddFriendship: With Moaning Myrtle, the ghost of a muggle-born.
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:When he refuses to abandon the incapacitated Goyle
in the last two books.burning Room of Requirement, even though the latter just intended to screw him over in hopes of gaining Voldemort's favor.]]
** Earlier, [[spoiler: when he didn't tell Bellatrix that it was indeed Harry they had caught.]]
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He's the first character to use the word "mudblood", which is basically the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' equivalent of the N-word.
* PrincelyYoungMan: The SpoiledBrat type. He throws around his wealth and background like they're spells.
* PsychicBlockDefense: Rowling notes that Malfoy is a natural Occlumens, since a major part of Occlumency is the ability to suppress your emotions.
* TheResenter: Draco wants to hang out with the famous Harry Potter at the start, but gets rejected because he takes about five seconds to prove he's a [[SmugSnake haughty, mean little twit]]. He spends most of the rest of the series tormenting Harry over all the unwanted fame and attention he's getting and failing to match him in things like Quidditch. Way to spend your energy on someone you supposedly don't care about.
* TheRival: To Harry, either in Quidditch or in other school activities.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections[=/=]ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Frequently.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: In the Deathly Hallows.
* ShadowArchetype:
** To Ron. They both come from old pure-blood families, but Malfoy [[FantasticRacism looks down on Muggle-borns and considers them inferior,]] while Ron is just as accepting of Muggle-borns and half-bloods as his father.
** To Harry. Both have high status in the wizarding world (albeit for different reasons), but Malfoy exploits his riches and his family name to put himself on a pedestal while Harry remains a generous HumbleHero.
* SixthRanger: In ''The Cursed Child'', he spends a significant chunk of his screentime (uh, stagetime?) helping Harry and Co. deal with the mess that Albus and Scorpius have accidentally caused.
* SmallNameBigEgo: During the first five books, Draco thinks rather highly of himself despite the fact that whenever he ''does'' have a confrontation with Harry, he loses. By the time of ''Half Blood Prince'', Draco is made into a Death Eater, and he quickly realizes he's in way over his head.
* SmugSnake: He believed himself superior to most people because of his family’s pure-blood lineage as well as great wealth and social standing.
* SpannerInTheWorks: A lucky break on his part [[spoiler:completely derailed the long-term plans of both Dumbledore ''and'' Voldemort.]]
* SpoiledBrat: Pretty much all of his negative qualities stem from his upbringing.
* StarterVillain: Acts as a foil to Harry and serves as his main adversary most of the time, since Voldemort isn't always around. It's even lampshaded sarcastically by Harry right after Voldemort comes back into the open.
--> '''Harry:''' [[DeadpanSnarker I s'pose Lord Voldemort's just a warm-up act compared to you...]]
* StellarName: He is related to the Black family through his mother, which has a tradition of naming its members after astronomical objects. As such, he is named after the Draco constellation. He also named his son Scorpius, continuing the trend.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: With his father and his son.
* ThouShaltNotKill: Despite all his negative qualities, Draco is incapable of actually killing someone. He can't do it, even if it's a direct order from Lord Voldemort, with his parents' lives in the balance.
** Though it could be debated that he probably would if he wasn't a [[DirtyCoward coward.]] Fear of [[BigBad Voldemort]] and a risk of failing could have played a factor.
** He is perfectly willing to endanger, harm and maim others though.
** After his HeelFaceTurn, he can't even bring himself to leave Crabbe (Goyle in the film) to die from a misused Fiendfyre spell, endangering his own life to try and rescue the clod.
* TookALevelInKindness:
** [[spoiler:Surprisingly. He becomes more grudgingly civil to Harry as grown-ups, in even though they're not friends.]]
** [[spoiler:Also, Draco took a level in maturity with regards to his son, Scorpius. He made sure that he didn't become another Draco.]]
* TortureTechnician: The role [[BigBad Voldemort]] gives him. Harry pities Malfoy because of this but then again he probably forgot that the Cruciatus Curse really works when used as an act of sadism. It could have been that Malfoy was simply afraid to fail Voldemort instead. Heck, he even tried to cast it on Harry in HBP. Meaning Malfoy was probably [[FridgeHorror comfortable doing it, but was terrified of Voldemort.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Green apples, in the films.
* WellDoneSonGuy: More so in the film adaptations. Draco obviously worships his father and is constantly trying to live up to his considerable reputation.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Described as having white-blond hair, and he's definitely not a good person.

-->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/EvannaLynch

->''"[All] my shoes have mysteriously disappeared. I suspect the [[RunningGag nargles]] are behind it."''

A {{Cloudcuckoolander}} of staggering proportions, probably because her father edits the Wizarding version of the "Weekly World News." WordOfGod claims that she's the anti-Hermione, in that she thinks entirely by faith whereas Hermione thinks entirely by logic. Though an oddball often used for [[PluckyComicRelief comic relief]], she is also one of Harry's most loyal supporters, forming a secondary PowerTrio with Neville and Ginny that leads Dumbledore's Army in Harry's absence. Has an uncanny ability to speak aloud what others are only thinking.

Nineteen years later, she is married to Rolf Scamander, grandson of the author of ''Literature/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'', becomes a wizard naturalist and discovers new species of magical beasts (but not the Crumple-Horned Snorkack), and has twin sons named Lorcan and Lysander.

* ActionGirl: Participates in the Ministry fight during the fifth book and holds her own in the final battle in the last book.
* {{Adorkable}}: She isn't really a nerd, but she sure is socially awkward...in a good way.
* AgentMulder: A deconstruction of the trope. {{Agent Mulder}}s tend to prevail, but most of Luna's wackier beliefs end up wrong, and WordOfGod says she learns to be a little bit more skeptical in her adulthood.
* AliceAllusion: How intentional they are is difficult to gauge, but Luna has many ''Alice in Wonderland'' parallels to her; she's a young blonde girl with an (over)active imagination, is associated with hares and rabbits and often seen as "mad".
* AlliterativeName: '''L'''una '''L'''ovegood. [[StealthPun Stealthily]] [[PunnyName Punny]] [[MeaningfulName Name]]: 'Luna' = 'Moon'. 'Moony' = 'Dreamy'. 'Lunacy' = 'Fullmoon-triggered insanity'. Those are obvious, with the right vocabulary. What takes the cake is 'Moon-eyed'. Not only are her eyes constantly wide, bulging, and unblinking in quasi-surprise, pointing to the usual definition, but they are described as "pale" and ''"silvery"''.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Many Hogwarts students would bully her, calling her ''Loony'' and stealing her possessions.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Some fans wonder if she's got something diagnosable, due of her "quirks". Then again, they might have just been brought about by her unusual upbringing.

She’s so comfortable with being different. She’s fearless." –Creator/JKRowling
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The Blonde to Hermione's Brunette and Ginny's Redhead.
* BreakoutCharacter: Even though she didn't appear until the fifth installment, Luna quickly became one of the most memorable and beloved characters. Her portrayal by Evanna Lynch only increased her character's popularity.
** In fact, IGN listed Luna Lovegood as their 12th top Harry Potter character, saying that looniness made her a "delight". Empire Magazine listed Luna as their 10th favorite Harry Potter character in "The 25 Greatest Harry Potter Characters".
* BreakTheCutie: When her mother died, and when she was bullied. [[IronWoobie You wouldn't know that it bothered her if you saw her, though]].
* BrutalHonesty: Harry finds it an uncomfortable habit of hers.
** "I liked the D.A. [[{{TearJerker}} It was like having friends]]."
** ''(on Ron)'' "He's not very nice sometimes, is he?"
** "People expect you to have cooler friends than us."
* CharacterDevelopment: An off-screen example. [[WordOfGod Rowling]] states Luna learns to be more skeptical as an adult.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: As a CharmPoint; talk of Nargles and random streams of consciousness. In ''Half-Blood Prince'' this is a DeconstructedTrope as it is brought up that Luna faces the treatment that many real life Cloudcuckoolanders face during the educational years. She has, for example, always been an easy target of teasing by other students and, before her 4th year, her only friend was Ginny. Neither of these facts seem to bother her especially much, though.
* ConspiracyTheorist: Has a variety of both ridiculous and seemingly credible conspiracy theories. While the ArbitrarySkepticism for her imaginary animals might be justified, the skeptism for the conspiracies is...not. The Wizarding world is so riddled with secret plots that the only reason the stuff Luna believes seems silly is that is ''sounds'' silly. And silly they do sound:
** She thinks that the Aurors are part of the 'rotfang' conspiracy which is trying to bring down the Ministry of Magic by a combination of dark magic and gum disease.
** Rufus Scrimgeour is a vampire, and the Ministry has an army of heliopaths, which are based on a handful of eyewitness reports.
** Voldemort had just spent the previous year helping Harry win the Triwizard Tournament.
** People in the government are trying to kill Harry.
** Someone will try to secretly overthrow the Ministry of Magic. Notice how [[RuleOfThree the last three]] sound credible InUniverse...
*** Actually, the last three are completely accurate InUniverse: Voldemort sent [[spoiler:Barty Crouch Jr., disguised as Mad-Eye Moody]] to ensure that Harry won the Tournament, Voldemort has Imperiused high-ranking members of the government with orders to capture/kill Potter, and in the end, Voldemort kills the Minister of Magic and installs a puppet leadership under his control with the majority of the Wizarding world none the wiser. Makes you rethink the nargles a little, doesn't it?
* CreepyGood: She is a mild version of this, in that she spouts horrific conspiracy theories and seems to be attuned to whole levels of magic the other characters can't access. She even gets stuck with the nickname "Loony Lovegood" because everyone else thinks she's crazy. Her serene manner might be off-putting to people at first.
* CuckoolanderCommentator: She'd rather point out oddities in the area than comment on the match.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: She actually guessed correctly on a couple of things (see ConspiracyTheorist).
* CulturedBadass: When not fighting Death Eaters or standing up to Harry's critics, she's rhapsodising about the meaning of life (and death) or [[ItMakesSenseInContext having philosophical debates with a door knocker]].
* CuteWitch: Even as a teen, Luna is an adorable witch.
* TheCutie: She's easy to fall in love with.
* DissonantSerenity: At least from everyone else's point of view.
* DitzyGenius: She is a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} almost to the point of ObfuscatingStupidity but she pulls out one genius move after another when it counts.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Well, it might be a stretch to say that she doesn't like them, as she seems comfortable wearing them most of the time, but when she temporarily loses her shoes (due to a prank by unnamed students) and is made to walk around barefoot, she treats the situation with her usual serenity.
** If only the whole "stolen shoes" story was true. It seems highly unrealistic that the disappearance of '''all''' her footwear would go unnoticed by Hogwarts' staff, so it is possible that she made up the whole story, and went barefoot simply because she wanted to.
* {{Foil}}: She has all of Hermione's intelligence with none of her social skills or strong friendships, and she comes from a family whose insatiable curiosity about Magic seriously threatened their safety and sanity. As mentioned above, Rowling conceived of her as "the Anti-Hermione", with her sense of faith contrasting with Hermione's sense of logic.
* FriendlessBackground: Luna had no friends prior to meeting Harry, Ginny, Ron, Hermione, and Neville. One of the most heart-breaking moments in the series is when Harry sees her bedroom, which contains portraits of the five. At first, Harry thinks she's drawn chains connecting them all to each other, but on closer examination, the 'chains' are made of up the word 'friends' written over and over in tiny, beautiful hand using gold-coloured ink.
* GeniusBruiser: A rare non-Gryffindor example, Luna is an intelligent, perceptive, serene Ravenclaw (she views the Ravenclaw tower's entry riddles as fascinating philosophical conundrums)... who held her own against Bellatrix Lestrange, survived being imprisoned and tortured in Malfoy Manor, helped spearhead the resistance to Snape, fought in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries (and after being knocked out came around in time to mind Ron and Ginny when they were wounded) ''and'' went back to Hogwarts shortly after being rescued from Malfoy Manor to fight in the Battle of Hogwarts (where at one point she stepped up to the plate and took on Harry's traditional role of driving away Dementors).
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: See her NiceGirl section.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: She forms close friendships, lasting in their adult years, with [[FieryRedhead Ginny]] and [[InsufferableGenius Hermione]].
* HyperAwareness: She knows people very well. Not even Polyjuice Potion can fool her. To put this into perspective, it takes ''months'' [[spoiler:for '''''Dumbledore''''' and the rest of the staff to figure out that Professor Moody is a fake.]] When Luna runs into a Polyjuiced Harry at Bill and Fleur's wedding, it takes her all of ten seconds.
* LastGirlWins: Averted. Although some fans thought she was introduced to be Harry's love interest, the idea of them being together isn't even brought up in the books.
* LonersAreFreaks: Or rather the reverse of that; freaks are lonely. She got better by the 5th book, though.
* MadDreamer
* TheMadHatter: By WordOfGod, Luna's aware of her own eccentricities and she couldn't care less if others judge her for it.
* MakingASpectacleOfYourself: Her Spectrespecs.
* MissingMom: Luna's mother had an accident while she was experimenting with magic. [[TearJerker Luna was nine and witnessed the whole thing.]]
* MoeCouplet: Harry and Luna. Luna is a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} who hardly seems troubled by anything and helps her father run the magical equivalent of a tabloid magazine, whereas Harry becomes more [[HurtingHero traumatized as increasing numbers of his friends and loved ones die. Some of them right in front of him.]] Yet, Luna understands what losing a loved one feels like, enabling her to empathise with his grief over Sirius -- and Harry knows what being picked on feels like, so he naturally wants to help her out when people hide Luna's things and mock her behind her back. They serve as two sides of the same coin, and [[FanPreferredCouple some fans prefer them as a couple to Harry/Ginny]].
* MoralityChain: To her father. The Death Eaters use it to their advantage.
* MysteriousWaif
* NiceGirl: One of the few to believe Harry's claim that Voldemort was back and is just a great person to hang around with.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: [[WordOfGod J.K.]] confirmed that, as a Magizoologist, Luna discovers a great deal of creatures nobody else thought existed, ''including'' some mentioned in The Quibbler. However, she never discovers a [[EnsembleDarkhorse Crumple-Horned Snorkack.]]
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: '''"HARRY POTTER! YOU LISTEN TO ME RIGHT NOW!"'''
* OracularUrchin: Especially how her actress looks and portrays her.
* PlatonicLifePartners: Despite the large number of shippers, Harry and Luna end up marrying other people when they reach adulthood and are never an item in canon. That said, they have a unique bond thanks to early losses of close family members. Despite Luna's oddness and Harry's angst, they seem to share a mutual unspoken understanding, with Harry noting he's "never known anyone like her." Harry even names his daughter Lily Luna Potter.
* PluckyGirl: Mr. Ollivander refers to her as "a light in that dark place" after [[spoiler: the two of them are dragged off and locked up by Voldemort]]. It sounds like rather than being crushed and destroyed, as the trio feared, she was helping other people to keep hope alive.
* ThePollyanna: This is what makes many characters and fans admire her.
* PosterGalleryBedroom
* PowerTrio: With Ginny and Neville.
* PromotedToLoveInterest: [[spoiler:To Neville in the eighth movie, but even then it apparently doesn't last long according to the actors.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Harry is Red, Luna is Blue. However, Luna is also the Red to Hermione's Blue.
* RunningGag: Her hysterical overreactions to Ron's jokes, Ron being awkward around her, her BrutalHonesty, her belief in Nargles and Crumple-Horned Snorkacks, her belief that Fudge is persecuting (and [[UpToEleven eating]]) the Goblins, thinking [[EntertaininglyWrong Sirius Black is innocent because he's just the alter ego of musician Stubby Boardman]].
* SheCleansUpNicely: While Luna is usually of the UnkemptBeauty variety, she gets a lot of positive comments when dressed up for formal occasions.
* SixthRanger: ''Literally'' no. 6; counting the main PowerTrio and first two members of her secondary trio (Neville and Ginny), Luna doesn't even get a name-drop until Book 5, excluding a undetailed, passing mention of the Lovegoods attending the Quidditch World Cup in the fourth book.
* StealthPun: She is, obviously, [[CloudCuckooLander crazy.]] Her Patronus is a hare. You could say she's...madder than a March Hare.
** Her patronus is actually a reference to the MoonRabbit. Still counts as a Stealth Pun, though.
* StepfordSmiler: Type A. She isn't as happy and cheerful on the inside as she is on the outside.
* TeenGenius: WordOfGod says that she's just as smart as Hermione, but they think in different ways. Hermione is very very logical, whereas Luna is more driven by creativity and intuition.
* TookALevelInCynic: She learns to be more skeptical about certain things.
* TownGirls: The Neither to Ginny's Butch and Hermione's Femme.
* UnkemptBeauty: While not overly concerned with her appearance, she is described as pretty.
* WaifFu: Shows elements of this in the books. Highlighted in the fifth film, during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. She gets surprise-attacked by a Death Eater who knocks her to the floor, her head jerking back as if she's just taken a punch. She stands up, bleeding from the lip (we see this from the Death Eater's POV, and she looks ''tiny'') and hits him with a Wingardium Leviosa so powerful it ''sends him flying through several rows of shelves''. She smiles slightly and looks at the destruction she has caused with an expression of mild curiosity.

In other words, Cantankerus Nott ''literally wrote the book'' on pure-blood supremacism.

To put this into perspective, it takes ''months'' [[spoiler:for '''''Dumbledore''''' and the rest of the staff to figure out that Professor Moody is a fake.]] When Luna runs into a Polyjuiced Harry at Bill and Fleur's wedding, it takes her all of ten seconds.
* LastGirlWins: Averted. Although some fans thought she was introduced to be Harry's love interest, the idea of them being together isn't even brought up in the books.
* LonersAreFreaks: Or rather the reverse of that; freaks are lonely. She got better by the 5th book, though.
* MadDreamer
* TheMadHatter: By WordOfGod, Luna's aware of her own eccentricities and she couldn't care less if others judge her for it.
* MakingASpectacleOfYourself: Her Spectrespecs.
* MissingMom: Luna's mother had an accident while she was experimenting with magic. [[TearJerker Luna was nine and witnessed the whole thing.]]
* MoeCouplet: Harry and Luna. Luna is a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} who hardly seems troubled by anything and helps her father run the magical equivalent of a tabloid magazine, whereas Harry becomes more [[HurtingHero traumatized as increasing numbers of his friends and loved ones die. Some of them right in front of him.]] Yet, Luna understands what losing a loved one feels like, enabling her to empathise with his grief over Sirius -- and Harry knows what being picked on feels like, so
he naturally wants to help her out when people hide Luna's things and mock her behind her back. They serve as two sides of the same coin, and [[FanPreferredCouple some fans prefer them as a couple to Harry/Ginny]].
* MoralityChain: To her father. The Death Eaters use it to their advantage.
* MysteriousWaif
* NiceGirl: One of the few to believe Harry's claim that Voldemort was back and is just a great person to hang around with.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: [[WordOfGod J.K.]] confirmed that, as a Magizoologist, Luna discovers a great deal of creatures nobody else thought existed, ''including'' some mentioned in The Quibbler. However, she never discovers a [[EnsembleDarkhorse Crumple-Horned Snorkack.]]
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: '''"HARRY POTTER! YOU LISTEN TO ME RIGHT NOW!"'''
* OracularUrchin: Especially how her actress looks and portrays her.
* PlatonicLifePartners: Despite the large number of shippers, Harry and Luna end up marrying other people when they reach adulthood and are never an item in canon. That said, they have a unique bond thanks to early losses of close family members. Despite Luna's oddness and Harry's angst, they seem to share a mutual unspoken understanding, with Harry noting he's "never known anyone like her." Harry even names his daughter Lily Luna Potter.
* PluckyGirl: Mr. Ollivander refers to her as "a light in that dark place" after [[spoiler: the two of them are dragged off and locked up by Voldemort]]. It sounds like rather than being crushed and destroyed, as the trio feared, she was helping other people to keep hope alive.
* ThePollyanna: This is what makes many characters and fans admire her.
* PosterGalleryBedroom
* PowerTrio: With Ginny and Neville.
* PromotedToLoveInterest: [[spoiler:To Neville in the eighth movie, but even then it apparently doesn't last long according to the actors.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Harry is Red, Luna is Blue. However, Luna is also the Red to Hermione's Blue.
* RunningGag: Her hysterical overreactions to Ron's jokes, Ron being awkward around her, her BrutalHonesty, her belief in Nargles and Crumple-Horned Snorkacks, her belief that Fudge is persecuting (and [[UpToEleven eating]]) the Goblins, thinking [[EntertaininglyWrong Sirius Black is innocent because he's just the alter ego of musician Stubby Boardman]].
* SheCleansUpNicely: While Luna is usually of the UnkemptBeauty variety, she gets a lot of positive comments when dressed up for formal occasions.
* SixthRanger: ''Literally'' no. 6; counting the main PowerTrio and first two members of her secondary trio (Neville and Ginny), Luna doesn't even get a name-drop until Book 5, excluding a undetailed, passing mention of the Lovegoods attending the Quidditch World Cup in the fourth book.
* StealthPun: She is, obviously, [[CloudCuckooLander crazy.]] Her Patronus is a hare. You could say she's...madder than a March Hare.
** Her patronus
is actually a reference to the MoonRabbit. Still counts as a Stealth Pun, though.
* StepfordSmiler: Type A. She isn't as happy and cheerful on the inside as she is on the outside.
* TeenGenius: WordOfGod says that she's just as smart as Hermione, but they think
quite popular in different ways. Hermione is very very logical, whereas Luna is more driven by creativity and intuition.
* TookALevelInCynic: She learns to be more skeptical about certain things.
* TownGirls: The Neither to Ginny's Butch and Hermione's Femme.
* UnkemptBeauty: While not overly concerned with her appearance, she is described as pretty.
* WaifFu: Shows elements of this in the books. Highlighted in the fifth film, during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. She gets surprise-attacked by a Death Eater who knocks her to the floor, her head jerking back as if she's just taken a punch. She stands up, bleeding from the lip (we see this from the Death Eater's POV, and she looks ''tiny'') and hits him with a Wingardium Leviosa so powerful it ''sends him flying through several rows of shelves''. She smiles slightly and looks at the destruction she has caused with an expression of mild curiosity.
* WeNeedADistraction: [[spoiler:After the Battle of Hogwarts, Luna graciously distracts the crowd so that Harry, Ron, and Hermione can make a break for the Headmaster's office in peace.]]

->''"[All] my shoes have mysteriously disappeared. I suspect
the Slug Club, as his uncle Damocles invented [[RunningGag nargles]] are behind it."''

A {{Cloudcuckoolander}} of staggering proportions, probably because her father edits
the Wolfsbane Potion. Belby blows Wizarding version of the interview, though, "Weekly World News." WordOfGod claims that she's the anti-Hermione, in that she thinks entirely by faith whereas Hermione thinks entirely by logic. Though an oddball often used for [[PluckyComicRelief comic relief]], she is also one of Harry's most loyal supporters, forming a secondary PowerTrio with Neville and does Ginny that leads Dumbledore's Army in Harry's absence. Has an uncanny ability to speak aloud what others are only thinking.

Nineteen years later, she is married to Rolf Scamander, grandson of the author of ''Literature/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'', becomes a wizard naturalist and discovers new species of magical beasts (but

* ActorExistenceFailure: Robert Knox was killed in a fight when he was stabbed while trying to protect his younger brother.
* BigEater: He does sit in on one Slug Club dinner, though, where he's depicted with a round face and greedily devouring everything set in front of him. Slughorn (perhaps in an example of HypocriticalHumor given his own build) even jokes about it.

to:

* ActorExistenceFailure: Robert Knox was killed ActionGirl: Participates in a the Ministry fight during the fifth book and holds her own in the final battle in the last book.
* {{Adorkable}}: She isn't really a nerd, but she sure is socially awkward...in a good way.
* AgentMulder: A deconstruction of the trope. {{Agent Mulder}}s tend to prevail, but most of Luna's wackier beliefs end up wrong, and WordOfGod says she learns to be a little bit more skeptical in her adulthood.
* AliceAllusion: How intentional they are is difficult to gauge, but Luna has many ''Alice in Wonderland'' parallels to her; she's a young blonde girl with an (over)active imagination, is associated with hares and rabbits and often seen as "mad".
* AlliterativeName: '''L'''una '''L'''ovegood. [[StealthPun Stealthily]] [[PunnyName Punny]] [[MeaningfulName Name]]: 'Luna' = 'Moon'. 'Moony' = 'Dreamy'. 'Lunacy' = 'Fullmoon-triggered insanity'. Those are obvious, with the right vocabulary. What takes the cake is 'Moon-eyed'. Not only are her eyes constantly wide, bulging, and unblinking in quasi-surprise, pointing to the usual definition, but they are described as "pale" and ''"silvery"''.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Many Hogwarts students would bully her, calling her ''Loony'' and stealing her possessions.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Some fans wonder if she's got something diagnosable, due of her "quirks". Then again, they might have just been brought about by her unusual upbringing.
* AnimalMotifs: Her Patronus is a hare. Like a MoonRabbit! It might be an ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' reference.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: When being a Quidditch commentator.
* BadassAdorable: An dorky, badass witch.
* BadassInDistress: [[spoiler:For a time in ''Deathly Hallows'',
when he she gets held hostage with Ollivander by Voldemort]].
* BarefootLoon: See DoesNotLikeShoes.
* BerserkButton: People insulting the ''Quibbler''.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: See her BerserkButton and GeniusBruiser sections.
* BeYourself:
--> "The key to Luna is that she has that unbelievably rare quality of actually not giving a damn what anyone else thinks of her. Now, if we as adults say honestly how many people we’ve known like that I think very many of us would say uh none! And Luna’s like that. She doesn’t actually care. She’s so comfortable with being different. She’s fearless." –Creator/JKRowling
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The Blonde to Hermione's Brunette and Ginny's Redhead.
* BreakoutCharacter: Even though she didn't appear until the fifth installment, Luna quickly became one of the most memorable and beloved characters. Her portrayal by Evanna Lynch only increased her character's popularity.
** In fact, IGN listed Luna Lovegood as their 12th top Harry Potter character, saying that looniness made her a "delight". Empire Magazine listed Luna as their 10th favorite Harry Potter character in "The 25 Greatest Harry Potter Characters".
* BreakTheCutie: When her mother died, and when she
was stabbed while bullied. [[IronWoobie You wouldn't know that it bothered her if you saw her, though]].
* BrutalHonesty: Harry finds it an uncomfortable habit of hers.
** "I liked the D.A. [[{{TearJerker}} It was like having friends]]."
** ''(on Ron)'' "He's not very nice sometimes, is he?"
** "People expect you to have cooler friends than us."
* CharacterDevelopment: An off-screen example. [[WordOfGod Rowling]] states Luna learns to be more skeptical as an adult.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: As a CharmPoint; talk of Nargles and random streams of consciousness. In ''Half-Blood Prince'' this is a DeconstructedTrope as it is brought up that Luna faces the treatment that many real life Cloudcuckoolanders face during the educational years. She has, for example, always been an easy target of teasing by other students and, before her 4th year, her only friend was Ginny. Neither of these facts seem to bother her especially much, though.
* ConspiracyTheorist: Has a variety of both ridiculous and seemingly credible conspiracy theories. While the ArbitrarySkepticism for her imaginary animals might be justified, the skeptism for the conspiracies is...not. The Wizarding world is so riddled with secret plots that the only reason the stuff Luna believes seems silly is that is ''sounds'' silly. And silly they do sound:
** She thinks that the Aurors are part of the 'rotfang' conspiracy which is
trying to protect bring down the Ministry of Magic by a combination of dark magic and gum disease.
** Rufus Scrimgeour is a vampire, and the Ministry has an army of heliopaths, which are based on a handful of eyewitness reports.
** Voldemort had just spent the previous year helping Harry win the Triwizard Tournament.
** People in the government are trying to kill Harry.
** Someone will try to secretly overthrow the Ministry of Magic. Notice how [[RuleOfThree the last three]] sound credible InUniverse...
*** Actually, the last three are completely accurate InUniverse: Voldemort sent [[spoiler:Barty Crouch Jr., disguised as Mad-Eye Moody]] to ensure that Harry won the Tournament, Voldemort has Imperiused high-ranking members of the government with orders to capture/kill Potter, and in the end, Voldemort kills the Minister of Magic and installs a puppet leadership under
his younger brother.
control with the majority of the Wizarding world none the wiser. Makes you rethink the nargles a little, doesn't it?
* BigEater: He does sit CreepyGood: She is a mild version of this, in that she spouts horrific conspiracy theories and seems to be attuned to whole levels of magic the other characters can't access. She even gets stuck with the nickname "Loony Lovegood" because everyone else thinks she's crazy. Her serene manner might be off-putting to people at first.
* CuckoolanderCommentator: She'd rather point out oddities in the area than comment
on one Slug Club dinner, though, where he's depicted the match.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: She actually guessed correctly on a couple of things (see ConspiracyTheorist).
* CulturedBadass: When not fighting Death Eaters or standing up to Harry's critics, she's rhapsodising about the meaning of life (and death) or [[ItMakesSenseInContext having philosophical debates
with a round face door knocker]].
* CuteWitch: Even as a teen, Luna is an adorable witch.
* TheCutie: She's easy to fall in love with.
* DissonantSerenity: At least from everyone else's point of view.
* DitzyGenius: She is a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} almost to the point of ObfuscatingStupidity but she pulls out one genius move after another when it counts.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Well, it might be a stretch to say that she doesn't like them, as she seems comfortable wearing them most of the time, but when she temporarily loses her shoes (due to a prank by unnamed students)
and greedily devouring everything set is made to walk around barefoot, she treats the situation with her usual serenity.
** If only the whole "stolen shoes" story was true. It seems highly unrealistic that the disappearance of '''all''' her footwear would go unnoticed by Hogwarts' staff, so it is possible that she made up the whole story, and went barefoot simply because she wanted to.
* {{Foil}}: She has all of Hermione's intelligence with none of her social skills or strong friendships, and she comes from a family whose insatiable curiosity about Magic seriously threatened their safety and sanity. As mentioned above, Rowling conceived of her as "the Anti-Hermione", with her sense of faith contrasting with Hermione's sense of logic.
* FriendlessBackground: Luna had no friends prior to meeting Harry, Ginny, Ron, Hermione, and Neville. One of the most heart-breaking moments in the series is when Harry sees her bedroom, which contains portraits of the five. At first, Harry thinks she's drawn chains connecting them all to each other, but on closer examination, the 'chains' are made of up the word 'friends' written over and over in tiny, beautiful hand using gold-coloured ink.
* GeniusBruiser: A rare non-Gryffindor example, Luna is an intelligent, perceptive, serene Ravenclaw (she views the Ravenclaw tower's entry riddles as fascinating philosophical conundrums)... who held her own against Bellatrix Lestrange, survived being imprisoned and tortured in Malfoy Manor, helped spearhead the resistance to Snape, fought in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries (and after being knocked out came around in time to mind Ron and Ginny when they were wounded) ''and'' went back to Hogwarts shortly after being rescued from Malfoy Manor to fight in the Battle of Hogwarts (where at one point she stepped up to the plate and took on Harry's traditional role of driving away Dementors).
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: See her NiceGirl section.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: She forms close friendships, lasting in their adult years, with [[FieryRedhead Ginny]] and [[InsufferableGenius Hermione]].
* HyperAwareness: She knows people very well. Not even Polyjuice Potion can fool her. To put this into perspective, it takes ''months'' [[spoiler:for '''''Dumbledore''''' and the rest of the staff to figure out that Professor Moody is a fake.]] When Luna runs into a Polyjuiced Harry at Bill and Fleur's wedding, it takes her all of ten seconds.
* LastGirlWins: Averted. Although some fans thought she was introduced to be Harry's love interest, the idea of them being together isn't even brought up in the books.
* LonersAreFreaks: Or rather the reverse of that; freaks are lonely. She got better by the 5th book, though.
* MadDreamer
* TheMadHatter: By WordOfGod, Luna's aware of her own eccentricities and she couldn't care less if others judge her for it.
* MakingASpectacleOfYourself: Her Spectrespecs.
* MissingMom: Luna's mother had an accident while she was experimenting with magic. [[TearJerker Luna was nine and witnessed the whole thing.]]
* MoeCouplet: Harry and Luna. Luna is a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} who hardly seems troubled by anything and helps her father run the magical equivalent of a tabloid magazine, whereas Harry becomes more [[HurtingHero traumatized as increasing numbers of his friends and loved ones die. Some of them right
in front of him. Slughorn (perhaps in an example of HypocriticalHumor given him.]] Yet, Luna understands what losing a loved one feels like, enabling her to empathise with his own build) grief over Sirius -- and Harry knows what being picked on feels like, so he naturally wants to help her out when people hide Luna's things and mock her behind her back. They serve as two sides of the same coin, and [[FanPreferredCouple some fans prefer them as a couple to Harry/Ginny]].
* MoralityChain: To her father. The Death Eaters use it to their advantage.
* MysteriousWaif
* NiceGirl: One of the few to believe Harry's claim that Voldemort was back and is just a great person to hang around with.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: [[WordOfGod J.K.]] confirmed that, as a Magizoologist, Luna discovers a great deal of creatures nobody else thought existed, ''including'' some mentioned in The Quibbler. However, she never discovers a [[EnsembleDarkhorse Crumple-Horned Snorkack.]]
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: '''"HARRY POTTER! YOU LISTEN TO ME RIGHT NOW!"'''
* OracularUrchin: Especially how her actress looks and portrays her.
* PlatonicLifePartners: Despite the large number of shippers, Harry and Luna end up marrying other people when they reach adulthood and are never an item in canon. That said, they have a unique bond thanks to early losses of close family members. Despite Luna's oddness and Harry's angst, they seem to share a mutual unspoken understanding, with Harry noting he's "never known anyone like her." Harry
even jokes names his daughter Lily Luna Potter.
* PluckyGirl: Mr. Ollivander refers to her as "a light in that dark place" after [[spoiler: the two of them are dragged off and locked up by Voldemort]]. It sounds like rather than being crushed and destroyed, as the trio feared, she was helping other people to keep hope alive.
* ThePollyanna: This is what makes many characters and fans admire her.
* PosterGalleryBedroom
* PowerTrio: With Ginny and Neville.
* PromotedToLoveInterest: [[spoiler:To Neville in the eighth movie, but even then it apparently doesn't last long according to the actors.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Harry is Red, Luna is Blue. However, Luna is also the Red to Hermione's Blue.
* RunningGag: Her hysterical overreactions to Ron's jokes, Ron being awkward around her, her BrutalHonesty, her belief in Nargles and Crumple-Horned Snorkacks, her belief that Fudge is persecuting (and [[UpToEleven eating]]) the Goblins, thinking [[EntertaininglyWrong Sirius Black is innocent because he's just the alter ego of musician Stubby Boardman]].
* SheCleansUpNicely: While Luna is usually of the UnkemptBeauty variety, she gets a lot of positive comments when dressed up for formal occasions.
* SixthRanger: ''Literally'' no. 6; counting the main PowerTrio and first two members of her secondary trio (Neville and Ginny), Luna doesn't even get a name-drop until Book 5, excluding a undetailed, passing mention of the Lovegoods attending the Quidditch World Cup in the fourth book.
* StealthPun: She is, obviously, [[CloudCuckooLander crazy.]] Her Patronus is a hare. You could say she's...madder than a March Hare.
** Her patronus is actually a reference to the MoonRabbit. Still counts as a Stealth Pun, though.
* StepfordSmiler: Type A. She isn't as happy and cheerful on the inside as she is on the outside.
* TeenGenius: WordOfGod says that she's just as smart as Hermione, but they think in different ways. Hermione is very very logical, whereas Luna is more driven by creativity and intuition.
* TookALevelInCynic: She learns to be more skeptical
about it.certain things.
* TownGirls: The Neither to Ginny's Butch and Hermione's Femme.
* UnkemptBeauty: While not overly concerned with her appearance, she is described as pretty.
* WaifFu: Shows elements of this in the books. Highlighted in the fifth film, during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. She gets surprise-attacked by a Death Eater who knocks her to the floor, her head jerking back as if she's just taken a punch. She stands up, bleeding from the lip (we see this from the Death Eater's POV, and she looks ''tiny'') and hits him with a Wingardium Leviosa so powerful it ''sends him flying through several rows of shelves''. She smiles slightly and looks at the destruction she has caused with an expression of mild curiosity.
* WeNeedADistraction: [[spoiler:After the Battle of Hogwarts, Luna graciously distracts the crowd so that Harry, Ron, and Hermione can make a break for the Headmaster's office in peace.]]

This Hogwarts House was founded by Helga Hufflepuff and exemplifies loyalty and hard work. Its color is yellow and black, its animal is the badger, its ghost is the Fat Friar, its Head of House is Pomona Sprout, and it is associated with the element of earth. Hufflepuff has produced few great wizards, and has the reputation of being the house for those that could not get in anywhere else. However, Hufflepuff has perhaps the most decent and humble people of any house.

Notable Hufflepuffs include Pomona Sprout, Cedric Diggory, Nymphadora Tonks, Hannah Abbott, Susan Bones, Ernie Macmillan, Justin Finch-Fletchley, Zacharias Smith, and Teddy Lupin.

she is unable to move forward herself, so they split up on bad terms.



* AndTheRest: Although usually said to be chosen for loyalty and hard work, one of the Sorting Hat songs describes Helga Hufflepuff as "tak[ing] all the rest, and treat[ing] them all the same," demonstrating the most frequently mentioned defining traits of the House; fairness and equality. Of course, [[FanDumb many people]] take it to mean that Hufflepuff is just a dumping ground for students none of the other Founders would deem "worthy".
* AnimalMotifs: Badgers are adorable, unassuming, and [[BewareTheNiceOnes will rip your face off]] if you threaten something they care about, which sums the House up quite neatly.
* TheBigGuy: After Gryffindor, Hufflepuff contributed the most student combatants to the Battle of Hogwarts.
* ButtMonkey: Hufflepuff is definitely the most maligned and mocked house in the fandom as well as canon. Hagrid tells us the first thing we ever hear about Hufflepuff, which is "everyone says Hufflepuff are a load o' duffers," although it's not made clear whether or not he actually agrees with this assessment. In any case, the books imply (and demonstrate) many times that Hufflepuff doesn't deserve its in-universe reputation as the house of weak-willed idiots. If anything, as mentioned below, Hufflepuff is strongly associated with ''loyalty'' and ''determination''.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Do not anger the Hufflepuffs. Proof positive -- the Hufflepuff common room door is the only one guarded by a non-verbal password, and if you get it wrong, the door squirts vinegar all over the offender.
** In point of fact, the Hufflepuff door has had the same password forever--it doesn't change like the others. It's also the only common room not entered by non-Hufflepuffs in the last '''thousand years.'''
* {{Determinator}}: The House that contributes the most fighters to Hogwarts at the end of the seventh book (after Gryffindor). Loyalty is one of their defining traits.
* TheGenericGuy: Their one moment of glory was when Cedric Diggory was chosen as the Triwizard contestant for Hogwarts, which was soon overshadowed by Harry becoming the other contestant for Hogwarts.
* HardWorkHardlyWorks: In-universe example, as Hufflepuff House rarely shines compared to the other Houses (noted in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]''), despite being the house that hard work is associated with.
** It seems like the difference between Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff is supposed to be the one between gazelles and warthogs. Academically, Hufflepuff students keep plugging at things till they get them and do good studious groundwork. Ravenclaws on the other hand would excel at their talents while neglecting fields that don't interest them, and make breakthroughs that are possible because of the good groundwork in question. It is entirely possible that while the Gryffindors, Slytherins, and Ravenclaws are highly visible, it is the Hufflepuffs who make that visibility possible.
* HufflepuffHouse: TropeNamer.
* NicePerson: Being kind to a fault seems to be a thing with them.
* TheReliableOne
* UndyingLoyalty: The primary defining trait of Hufflepuff. JK Rowling herself has said that while more of the Gryffindors remained behind, for a lot of them it was simply because they wanted to ''fight'', whether because they thought running away would be cowardly or for revenge. For the Hufflepuffs who remained behind, [[WordOfGod she says]] it was universally "something deeper".

to:

* AndTheRest: AdaptationalHeroism: To some extent. Many of the characteristics of Cho that were so irritating in the book were toned down in the film.

* CharacterFocus: In the first four books, Susan was just a minor student with a small role. In the fifth and sixth books, she comes slightly into focus and is shown to be particularly distressed about Voldemort's return as most of her family was killed in the previous war against him. Harry's trial includes Amelia Bones, who takes his side, and she's later revealed to be Susan's aunt. This is how Susan finds out that Harry can make a Patronus and comes to ask him about it when the D.A. first meets in the Hog's Head. This is taken out in the movie adaptation.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: She is not seen in the films after the second one. While her presence in the films initially could be attributed to Chris Columbus, the fact that she doesn't come into focus is quite glaring.
* CommonalityConnection: When she involuntarily becomes the target of gossip in ''The Order of the Phoenix'' after the Death Eater who murdered several members of her family escapes Azkaban in a mass breakout, she thinks she knows what it's like to be Harry Potter -- and she doesn't know how he stands it, it's ''horrible''.

to:

* TheCameo: She's played AndTheRest: Although usually said to be chosen for loyalty and hard work, one of the Sorting Hat songs describes Helga Hufflepuff as "tak[ing] all the rest, and treat[ing] them all the same," demonstrating the most frequently mentioned defining traits of the House; fairness and equality. Of course, [[FanDumb many people]] take it to mean that Hufflepuff is just a dumping ground for students none of the other Founders would deem "worthy".
* AnimalMotifs: Badgers are adorable, unassuming, and [[BewareTheNiceOnes will rip your face off]] if you threaten something they care about, which sums the House up quite neatly.
* TheBigGuy: After Gryffindor, Hufflepuff contributed the most student combatants to the Battle of Hogwarts.

to apparate. Unfortunately, be the one between gazelles and warthogs. Academically, Hufflepuff students keep plugging at things till they get them and do good studious groundwork. Ravenclaws on the other hand would excel at their talents while neglecting fields that don't interest them, and make breakthroughs that are possible because of the good groundwork in question.

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hannah_abbott.jpg]]
-->'''Portrayed by:''' Charlotte Skeoch

->''"Harry always seemed so nice, though. And after all, he is the one who made You-Know-Who disappear."''

Hannah is a Hufflepuff girl who hangs out with Justin Finch-Fletchley, Susan Bones, and Ernie Macmillan. She is very interested in Herbology, and speculates a lot on the weird things that always happen at Hogwarts. She is made a Prefect and joins Dumbledore's Army in her fifth year. In her sixth year, she is removed from school because her mother is murdered. She later returns to participate in the Battle of Hogwarts.
----
* BirdsOfAFeather: With Neville. She's hinted to have an interest in Herbology, like Neville, and is a Hufflepuff, which is where Neville thought he should have been Sorted until he TookALevelInBadass. Also, they were both in the DA together during the seventh book.
%%* BreakTheCutie: Through books 5-7.
* FirstGirlWins: A literal example. She's the first girl on the register and marries Neville in the future.
* GirlishPigtails: In her early years, at least.
%%* GreekChorus
* IWarnedYou: Hannah insists in ''Prisoner of Azkaban'' that Sirius Black is evading the manhunt by turning himself into a flowering shrub. It turned out [[spoiler:she was mostly right, except that he was turning into a dog, not a plant]]. However, the trope ends up subverted because [[spoiler:she not only does NOT get to say "I warned you" to anyone, she never even finds out how close she was to the truth]].
%%* MrExposition
%%* MissingMom: Tragically done.
* NervousWreck: She completely falls apart under the pressure of O.W.L. exams. First she has a mental breakdown in the days leading up to the exams and needs a magical tranquilizer from the school nurse, and then she loses her head again in the middle of the transfiguration portion of the exams, multiplying her ferret into a flock of flamingos.
* NiceGirl: She earns points for doubting the Harry-is-Slytherin's-heir theory rather than blindly agreeing with Ernie (her own Housemate), and is generally one of the nicer girls in the school. She ''did'' shun Harry in the early Triwizard Tournament stages, but then most everyone thought he was being a GloryHound anyway.
* PlatonicLifePartners: Always seems to be hanging around with Ernie, and their relationship is never given any romantic indications. Ends up, of course, married to Neville.
* PowerIncontinence: The above-mentioned ferret-to-flamingos incident was the result of a botched Vanishing spell.
* PromotedToLoveInterest: Ends up married to Neville in the epilogue with no prior known interaction between the two. Though, to be fair, Neville spends the last book completely OutOfFocus until the very end and nearly two decades pass between the last chapter and the epilogue.
* RegularCharacter: She is the only Hogwarts student from Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw who appears at least once in all seven books.
* ThrowTheDogABone: Hannah started out as a relatively normal young witch that the world suddenly decided to take a dump on around Book 5. First she has a nervous breakdown during her O.W.L. exams (May-June 1996). It's never stated how many O.W.L.s she actually got, either. Then, right as Book 6 starts (September 1996), her mother is killed by the Death Eaters. She misses that entire year but is ''forced'' to go back to Hogwarts and presumably ''retakes sixth year'' in 1997, except now Hogwarts is under the de facto leadership of the wizard who caused her mother's death. She finally gets a bone thrown to her in the end - by the time of the epilogue, she eventually marries one of the biggest still-living Badasses in the entire book series and becomes the landlady of the Leaky Cauldron.]]

[[folder:Susan Bones]]
[[quoteright:235:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/JSusan_3123.JPG]]
-->'''Portrayed by:''' Eleanor Columbus

->''"And I don't know how you stand it- it's horrible."''

Susan Bones is another member of the Hufflepuff clique, and was one of the first students to be Sorted. Her aunt Amelia is a senior Ministry official, but she is killed by Lord Voldemort, as were many of Susan's other relatives. At Hogwarts, Susan is friends with Hermione Granger, and later joins Dumbledore's Army. At the first meeting, she asks Harry if he can produce a corporeal Patronus. Later on, she participates in the Battle of Hogwarts.
----
* TheCameo: She's played in the first two films by Creator/{{Chris Columbus}}'s daughter Eleanor and thus disappears from the movies when Columbus stopped directing.
* CharacterFocus: In the first four books, Susan was just a minor student with a small role. In the fifth and sixth books, she comes slightly into focus and is shown to be particularly distressed about Voldemort's return as most of her family was killed in the previous war against him. Harry's trial includes Amelia Bones, who takes his side, and she's later revealed to be Susan's aunt. This is how Susan finds out that Harry can make a Patronus and comes to ask him about it when the D.A. first meets in the Hog's Head. This is taken out in the movie adaptation.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: She is not seen in the films after the second one. While her presence in the films initially could be attributed to Chris Columbus, the fact that she doesn't come into focus is quite glaring.
* CommonalityConnection: When she involuntarily becomes the target of gossip in ''The Order of the Phoenix'' after the Death Eater who murdered several members of her family escapes Azkaban in a mass breakout, she thinks she knows what it's like to be Harry Potter -- and she doesn't know how he stands it, it's ''horrible''.
* GlorySeeker: Inverted, as with [[HumbleHero Harry]].
* TeleporterAccident: During the apparition lessons in ''The Half-Blood Prince'', Susan ends up being the first student to apparate. Unfortunately, she left one of her legs behind. The supervising professors quickly tended to her, but Susan was extremely shaken up by the incident.

[[folder:Justin Finch-Fletchley]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/justin_finch_fletchley.png]]
-->'''Portrayed by:''' Edward Randell

->''"What are you playing at?!"''

The Muggleborn boy who causes Harry to out himself as a Parselmouth in ''Chamber of Secrets'' and then gets Petrified by the basilisk, fueling Ernie [=MacMillan=] & Co.'s suspicions that Harry is the Heir of Slytherin. Later a member of Dumbledore's Army.
----
* MouthyKid: Ernie thinks Justin is putting himself in danger by shooting his mouth off to Harry.
* UpperClassTwit: Implied by several factors including his double-barreled PreppyName and the fact that he says he was headed to Eton until his Hogwarts letter arrived, and generally seeming a little hapless and naive. Ernie considers him TooDumbToLive for running his mouth about his Muggle blood with the Heir of Slytherin making attacks, but of course Ernie's barking up the wrong tree.
** Though it's notable that he's one of the few characters to approach the trio and introduce himself to Ron, Hermione, and Harry, rather than just Harry. Which is almost certainly a product of his upbringing.
-->'''Justin:''' “Justin Finch-Fletchley,” he said brightly, shaking Harry by the hand. “Know who you are, of course, the famous Harry Potter... And you’re Hermione Granger — always top in everything” (Hermione beamed as she had her hand shaken too) “— and Ron Weasley. Wasn’t that your flying car?”
*** Also, as the above quotation proves, unlike many examples of this trope, he is a sympathetic character; as well as being initially friendly to the Trio, he later apologises to Harry for having ever thought he was the Heir of Slytherin, and in the 5th book, he joins the DA.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: He is a Muggleborn, and we don't know what became of him after Voldemort to power in the seventh book.

[[folder:Edward "Teddy" Remus Lupin]]

Son of Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks. Implied to be a Metamorphmagus like his mother, and according to Rowling's Twitter was the Head Boy of Hufflepuff in 2015, the year James began school.
----
* ClassRepresentative: Became Head Boy his last year; in all likelihood was a Prefect for Hufflepuff leading up to that point.
* CoolBigBro: To Albus, James, and Lily.
* [[CuteClumsyGirl Cute Clumsy Boy]]: [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like mother, like son.]]
* DeadGuyJunior: Named after his maternal grandfather, Ted Tonks, and his father (though Remus was still alive at the time of his birth).
* {{Expy}}: Word of God says that his upbringing is said to mirror both Neville's[[note]]Lost both parents to evil but is raised by a caring grandmother[[/note]] and Harry's[[note]]taken in by a loving non-blood family and eventually falling in love with a member of that family[[/note]].
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With his godfather, Harry.
* HeartwarmingOrphan
* LineageComesFromTheFather: Averted. He does not inherit Lupin's lycanthropy, but does inherit Tonks's Metamorphmagus abilities. He also gets sorted into Hufflepuff like his mother.
* MakeOutKids: Caught snogging Victoire in public places on several occasions.
* OfficialCouple: With Victoire Weasley, after the timeskip. By 2017, they've been together for three years.
* RaisedByGrandparents: Specifically, his maternal grandmother.
* VoluntaryShapeshifter: Like his mom.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: As a baby, we see him with turquoise hair at one point. According to Lupin, his hair keeps changing colour, so it's a strong indication that he's a Metamorphmagus like Tonks. It's also implied, though, that he keeps to the turquoise hair as his usual hair color.

[[folder:Dumbledore's Army]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s_Army_Logomark_on_Parchment_7152.JPG]]

->''"Every great wizard in history has started out as nothing more than what we are now: students. If they can do it, why not us?"''
-->-- '''Harry Potter'''

Created by Harry, Ron and Hermione as a response to [[SadistTeacher Dolores Umbridge's]] prohibition on teaching students to defend themselves against Voldemort, Dumbledore's Army is the Hogwarts equivalent to the Order of the Phoenix. Its members are Hogwarts students who want to fight Voldemort, and they learn defense from Harry in the Room of Requirement. They communicate using gold coins modified by the Protean Charm to display summons.

Though their activities were interrupted by Dolores Umbridge, Dumbledore's Army remained active in the sixth and seventh books, contributing to the defense of Hogwarts. The organization was named by Ginny Weasley, who said that what the Ministry of Magic would most fear was Dumbledore raising his own army.
----
%%* BadassCrew
%%* BigDamnHeroes
* BreakingTheFellowship: Temporarily in ''Half-Blood Prince''.
* ChildSoldiers: Of the Just Plain Tragic variety.
* IWasJustJoking: Their name is originally a joke based on the idea that Umbridge refused to train them in defensive magic because she's "afraid that Dumbledore was putting together a private army." When Umbridge finds out about them, however, she takes the name with deadly earnest -- and, after a while, so do they.
* InfantImmortality: [[spoiler:Averted. Quite a few members-notably Colin Creevy, Fred Weasley, and Lavender Brown (film only)- get KilledOffForReal.]]
%%* KidHero: It's made up of students.
* LaResistance: Initially against Umbridge, but later against [[spoiler: the Death Eaters installed in Hogwarts by Voldemort.]]

[[folder:The Slug Club]]
[[quoteright:275:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/smallslug_9018.jpg]]

->''"Horace [Slughorn] formed a kind of club of his favourites with himself at the centre, making introductions, forging useful contacts between members, and always reaping some kind of benefit in return..."''

An informal circle created by Potions master Horace Slughorn to bring together promising young students. Horace selects those who are famous, have famous relatives or have demonstrated exceptional talent, and interviews them. If they pass the interview, then they are invited to parties hosted by Horace, who also invites alumni who were in the club. This way, he can cultivate connections, ensure that club members become important, and be able to call in minor favors from them.

Members include Horace Slughorn (founder), Voldemort, Lucius Malfoy, Lily Evans, Gwenog Jones, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ginny Weasley, Cormac [=McLaggen=], Blaise Zabini, Marcus Belby (film only), Neville Longbottom (film only), and the Carrow twins (film only).
----
* AmbitionIsEvil: Subverted. The circle is a way for Slughorn to get ahead without directly leading, and getting ahead is the non-bigotry component of the Slytherin credo.
%%* DancesAndBalls
* DarkIsNotEvil: Just because it's an elite circle run by a Slytherin doesn't mean it's bad. Lily Potter, nee Evans, was in it and she is one of the nicest people ever.
* {{Expy}}: Of fraternities and "inner circles" such as the Bullingdon Club at Eton or the Skull and Bones.
* InitiationCeremony: Interview with Slughorn, followed by attendance at a party.
* LighterAndSofter: Compared to the other organizations in the series.
%%* TheManBehindTheMan
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Ron derisively calls it the Slug Club, and the name sticks.
%%* WackyFratboyHijinx: Averted.
* YoungFutureFamousPeople: What Horace hopes the people in his circle will become.
