Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedKarma: Fudge spent an entire year denying that Voldemort was back, and set up an entire smear campaign against Harry, Dumbledore, and their supporters. Once it turns out that Voldemort really did return, all of the slander he aimed at his "enemies" turned around and bit him in the ass '''''HARD'''''. He's fired in disgrace, his reputation is destroyed, and he's going down in history as one of the worst Ministers of Magic ever. And the community that he was trying to protect was nearly destroyed thanks to his denial.


Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues:
** Turns out that denying that a psycho terrorist is back and then slandering the people that actually notice isn't going to make you look good in the eyes of the public when the truth spills out. And that begging the people ''who you spent an entire year making the victims of a smear campaign'' for help to keep your job isn't going to get you much sympathy or support from them. Harry was incredulous that Fudge thought that he could actually get his support after everything that happened.
** Let's not forget that Fudge's denial is a major factor in the Dark Lord almost taking over the world.


Added DiffLines:

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: If Fudge was actually honest about what Harry and Dumbledore were saying, then Voldemort wouldn't have had his NearVillianVictory and the body count in the last two books would have been ''much'' lower.

* CompositeCharacter: In the film, he also takes the role of Ludo Bagman, who's AdaptedOut.



* CompositeCharacter: Combined with the senior Barty Crouch in the film.


Added DiffLines:

The BlackSheep of the Weasley family. At the start of the series, Percy is a pompous, ambitious prefect with NoSenseOfHumor. Oh wait, did we mention he's a Prefect? Well, he's a Prefect, in case that hadn't been mentioned. He's TheDutifulSon who thinks himself the "respectable" one in the family. His self-important manner made him the target of teasing from his younger siblings, making him a bit of a ButtMonkey. Molly continuously failed to make the twins, Ron and Ginny view Percy as a role model, but not through lack of trying. Basically, his portrayal in the early books was that of an officious twit, but this was PlayedForLaughs and he was mostly a sympathetic character.

* ThickerThanWater: In the final book, when his family is about to go to war, Percy swallows his pride at long last to join them. He was there when Fred died, and this hammered down on his BerserkButton ''hard'', leading to him ''screaming at the next Death Eater to cross his path for a fight''.

A former professional Quidditch player, and the head of the Department of Magical Games and Sports in the fourth book. He's also one of the organizers and judges of the Triwizard Tournament. A rather easygoing and jovial fellow, he's also a [[TheGamblingAddict gambling addict]] who [[spoiler:has bet on Harry to win the Triwizard Tournament, and tries to help him win so he can pay back gold he borrowed to cover his gambling debts.]]

* AssholeVictim:



* GoldDigger: Her backstory reveals she tried to romance various Ministry members (including her bosses) to gain wealth and status but [[FatBastard for some reason]] they never saw her as anything more than a colleague.

Added DiffLines:

*{{Sadist}}: She is ''horrific'' in this regard. It is incredibly obvious that she loves to inflict pain and misery on everyone she can.
* TheSociopath: Moreso in the films. When you take away all of the sugary sweetness, this is what lurks at the core of her being. She has a staggering LackOfEmpathy for the victims of her cruelty, which is to say ''anyone'' put under her jurisdiction, is positively gleeful at the prospect of using ColdBloodedTorture ForTheEvulz, and when she's put under sentencing muggle-burns and half-bloods, she uses the time to toy with and throw away their lives with the same happy-go-lucky attitude as a particularly sadistic child burning ants under a magnifying glass.

** Umbridge uses the CatsAreMean motif, but it's partially subverted; while she has paintings of cats and a cat Patronus, she's never actually shown with a '''living''' pet cat, and is thus juxtaposed against Hermione and Ms. Figg. That's assuming that a living cat could ''survive'' being in [[EnemyToAllLivingThings her]] presence. In fact, her backstory shared on Pottermore states she finds actual kittens to be too messy.

* DareToBeBadass: At the end of Book 4, Dumbledore tells him to accept Voldemort's return, remove the Dementors from Azkaban, and send envoys to the Giants. He tells Fudge if he takes these steps, he will be remembered as one of the bravest and greatest Ministers of Magic; if Fudge refuses (which he does), he will be remembered as the man who stepped aside and allowed Voldemort to destroy everything the Wizarding World has tried so hard to rebuild.
