** A good case can be made that she still wants to be special even as an adult and that she is just overcompensating her "normal life" because she is fully aware of it, which also leads to her treatment of Harry, [[spoiler: which she is later implied to regret like Dudley]]. Moreover Dumbledore counted on this yearning for her connection to the wizarding world when he appointed her as Harry's caretaker and provider of the blood protection that would keep Harry safe in Privet Drive.

Creator/JKRowling once cited him as her least favorite character in the entire series and yes, this was after [[BigBad Lord Voldemort]] and [[HateSink Dolores Umbridge]] had been introduced. As for the fandom, let's just say you won't find many fanfics in which he [[DracoInLeatherPants wears leather pants]].

to:

* SpoiledBrat: Dumbledore makes the interesting case that what the Dursleys have done to Dudley is actually worse than what they did to Harry. Since he was abused for the first ten years of his life, Harry rarely took anything he had for granted, nor did he expect the world to ever make any leeway for him, even with his status as the Boy-Who-Lived. Compare this to Dudley, who, being spoiled rotten and given everything he ever wanted, had his worse traits enabled and even ''encouraged'', leaving him with barely anything resembling a moral compass and ill-equipped to deal with the real world.

* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Unlike Petunia, he has no FreudianExcuse or reason for hating Harry at all. While Petunia does seem to feel some obligation to let Harry live in her house, Vernon feels nothing at all, and even tries to throw him out of the house during a Dementor attack, which would put his life in danger.
