* ThisIsUnforgivable: Fred, George and Ginny toss mashed parsnips at Percy when he comes for a Christmas visit during Harry's sixth year, because he doesn't apologize for making their mother cry and choosing ambition over family; it doesn't help that it's obvious the new Minister was using Percy for an opportunity to speak with Harry. Much later on, they are able to forgive him when he admits that he was a fool.

* FatalFlaw: His social climber personality made him choose the Ministry over his family. Also his {{Pride}} kept him from apologizing to his family after it was revealed Harry was telling the truth about Voldemort returning, until the Final Battle.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Fudge desperately sought to make liars out of Harry and Dumbledore out of fear of the truth and in order to protect his own legacy as the Minister of Magic; upon seeing Voldemort for himself, he loses the support of the entire Wizarding community and is reviled by all as a colossal failure at the post, just as Dumbledore had forewarned.

** Fudge learns the hard way that denying the return of a psychotic terrorist fascist for an entire year, and then slandering the people that actually noticed, isn't going to make you look good in the eyes of the public when the truth spills out. Then when you beg for help from the people ''whom you spent an entire year slandering and libeling'' to keep your job, they won't show you any sympathy and refuse to support you. Harry was [[YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe incredulous]] that Fudge thought that he could actually get his support after everything that happened.

* IHaveNoSon: She grew to despise her Muggle mother and Squib brother, under her father's guidance.

* YouAreWhatYouHate: Despises half-bloods and Muggles, her mother is a Muggle and her brother is a Squib.

** He believes Dumbledore wants to steal his position as Minister of Magic, when the truth is that Dumbledore is content with his own position as Headmaster of Hogwarts and does not trust himself to hold such a powerful position. In fact, Dumbledore had previously been asked to become Minister of Magic after Crouch was ousted, but refused.



* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: He ends up ditching his position after Voldemort returns, although his ZeroApprovalRating meant that he wasn't going to be able to stick around much longer.

Added DiffLines:

* UngratefulBastard: Dumbledore always gave him helpful advice during his years in office. That did not stop Fudge from waging a year-long smear campaign against him and Harry when he thought Dumbledore was plotting to overthrow him and take his position as Minister of Magic.

** Come Book 5, it's easy to imagine Lucius Malfoy and Dolores Umbridge effortlessly manipulating him by acting like cliché {{Evil Chancellor}}s. In fact, given [[ObviouslyEvil their personalities]], that's probably exactly what they do.
** In book 4, when Crouch goes missing he suspects Madame Maxime of attacking him, with his reasons being that her carriage was close to Crouch's last sighting and because [[FantasticRacism she's a half-giant, and giants are known for being violent by nature]]. [[InsaneTrollLogic When Dumbledore points out the flaws in Fudge's reasoning, Fudge accuses Dumbledore of being prejudiced because of his half-giant employee Hagrid]]. He then acts somewhat shocked when Dumbledore gently suggests ''he's'' the one being prejudiced.
