!!Vernon Dursley



* AbusiveParents: Vernon Dursley isn't actually Harry's father, but is rather cruel towards him as his guardian.

to:

* AbusiveParents: Vernon Dursley isn't actually Harry's father, but is rather cruel towards him as his guardian. He also was a bad father to Dudley because of the constant spoiling and teaching his son to bully his cousin.

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He hates wizards and views them as abnormal freaks. Contrast that to most of the villains in the series, who view Muggles like him as subhuman. He also has many unflattering things to say about people below his own socio-economic standing.
** [[EvenEvilHasStandards Although]], his approval of Kingsley Shacklebolt suggests that despite his many, ''many'' prejudicial beliefs, he isn't racist.

!!Frank Bryce



* {{Badass Grandpa}}[=/=]{{Badass Normal}}: Possibly the most badass Muggle in the series. He mouths off to Voldemort! (Not that he knows it's Voldemort or how powerful he is.) When his "echo" appears later via temporary pseudo-resurrection he is surprisingly accepting of the fact he is dead and that wizards exist, and gives Harry support despite never having even heard of him before.

* DemotedToExtra: In the film series. Of all of the Dursleys, Dudley gets hit with this the worst, as his FaceHeelTurn in ''Deathly Hallows'', while filmed, was cut from the final product.

* {{Expy}}: As noted above, he's rather similar to Mr. Wormwood, though thankfully he doesn't make a living stealing cars from others and scamming them out of their money.

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoDifferent: Despite her hatred for [[spoiler:Snape]], they actually have something in common. They both see Harry as a living symbol of something they could never have [[spoiler:(Snape sees Harry as a living reminder of his failed romance with Lily, Petunia sees Harry as a living reminder of the fact that she could never do magic). In addition, they tend to point out Harry's flaws while ignoring their "favorite"'s flaws (Draco for Snape, Dudley for Petunia). In addition, both judge Harry not so much by his character, but rather by his heritage.]]


Added DiffLines:

* PsychopathicWomanchild: It's implied that Petunia, at the end of the day, is still at heart a resentful teenager who never got what she wanted.

* MuggleFosterParents: The source of this trope, though with a twist -- he ''hates'' Harry.

to:

* MuggleFosterParents: The source He and Petunia raised Harry since he was a baby. Largely involuntarily, though. He's not particularly fond of this trope, though with a twist -- he ''hates'' Harry.



* TooDumbToLive: When [[HalfHumanHybrid Hagrid]] shows up, Vernon continues to act like an abusive jerk to Harry and insults his parents and [[TheMentor Dumbledore]], even though he ''knows'' Hagrid gets angry if they're insulted. Hagrid is a half giant with [[SuperStrength Super Strength]] and the ability to use magic (albeit not very well). Granted, it's Dudley who ends paying for it instead of his father, but if Hagrid were anything but a GentleGiant, Vernon would've probably ended up dead.
