Harry Potter : Honoring the Dead

Updated: Nov 19, 2021

There's a few whom all of us would have cried over their death in Harry Potter. I have written about the Top 5 Most Sorrowful deaths in Harry Potter, the top 3 in detail, and the others briefly.

Number 1


The first time I saw Dobby, I found him very annoying. As annoying as Harry found him. But then he was a character we all loved. He died for his friends, and he is someone to remember. His first and last words, were "Harry Potter"

His last few words were "Such a beautiful place, to be with friends. Dobby is happy to be with his friend, Harry Potter."

This could bring tears to anyone's eyes.

Number 2

Fred Weasley

Who didn't like the pair of twins? I don't get why Fred has to die. This was such a sad part. One twin, (Fred) died laughing, while the other, (George) lived crying. You know, I don't think I cried because Fred died. I think it was because George was alive, but alone.

It was said that while Fred's death scene was being shot, James (who acted as Fred) was acting dead. It bought real tears to Oliver's (George) eyes. James said "I'm not actually dying, Oliver!"

Such a sad, happy story!

Number 3 Severus Snape Let's admit, Snape was never our favorite character, till the last movie. His heart broken repeatedly, first when he was put in Slytherin when Lily was in Gryffindor, then when James made fun of him, then when James married Lily and then finally due to Lily's death. He took out his hatred of James on Harry, but always protected him. Snape was a noble man, and I personally think Harry was able to kill Voldemort not only because the Elder wand didn't obey Voldemort, but because he had a raging fire inside him, sorrowing over the death of Snape, who had turned out to be a remarkable man. Number 4 Sirius Black Died before he could enjoy his life. After being in Azkaban for 12 years, and then forced to hide, he died when we finally came out. Number 5

Hedwig I don't know why, but the bird that was Harry's only companion, when it died, was so very sad.

Please note : There are many who died honorably, but these are the most sorrowful, not the most noble deaths. These depend on the sorrow it caused others when they died.

Leave your comments on whom you think should have been mentioned in the top 5!
