The Most Terrifying Death Eaters From Harry Potter, Ranked

The Death Eaters, Harry Potter’s perpetual evil guys, are Voldemort’s constant henchmen who sacrifice their lives for the greater bad. They began as “a group of dedicated friends,” a “motley collection” with “a kind of dark glamour,” according to Dumbledore.

In the films and novels, there are a number of Death Eaters. It’s difficult to keep track of who’s who with so many of them coming and going. However, some do stick with us, and it’s usually because of their magical prowess and strength. We’re more inclined to recall a figure who is more powerful. Here is a list, ranking of the most terrifying Death Eaters from Harry Potter:

1. The bat-shit crazy Bellatrix Lestrange

One of the most terrifying death eaters from the Harry Potter series.
The psychopath: Bellatrix Lestrange.

It’s impossible to discuss scary death-eaters without including Bellatrix Lestrange. Everything about her is horrible, from her obsessive allegiance to Voldemort to her gleeful wickedness and fondness for inflicting pain on others. She refused to believe the Dark Lord had vanished, so after his downfall, she went on the hunt for him and assaulted the Longbottoms. In fighting, she was always the one who came out on top. She was generally capable of destroying Harry’s strongest allies, even in defeat, as she is personally responsible for the deaths of Sirius Black and Dobby. Throughout all of her appearances, she was always the primary enemy, a terrifying force that even Harry could never totally overcome.

2. The monster werewolf: Fenrir Greyback

One of the most terrifying death eaters from the Harry Potter series.
Werewolf bounty hunter infamous for his savagery: Fenrir Greyback.

Remus Lupin‘s conversion into a werewolf, as well as Bill Weasley’s facial scars, were caused by this terrifying beast. In numerous instances, Fenrir Greyback has proven to be a powerful opponent, and while he has been humbled a few times, he is usually the most deadly foe in the room. To be truthful, Fenrir Greyback’s werewolf aspect is the only thing that makes him dangerous; his magical prowess is really nothing to be surprised at. His body’s immense power allows him to commit acts of utter destruction. However, t This Death Eater is still on the list because he is the least likely to display pity on his captives, regarding them as prey to be devoured rather than targets to be simply killed.

3. Mad-Eye Moody’s impersonator: Barty Crouch Jr.

One of the most terrifying death eaters from the Harry Potter series.
The major antagonist in the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: Barty Crouch Jr.

Barty Crouch Junior would have probably become be the single most powerful Death Eater in the series if he would have simply pulled off his grand plan. He is not only effective in influencing Harry for a year, but his impersonation of Mad-Eye Moody is so accurate that he could have survived as Moody for the rest of the time. Regrettably for him and fortunately for us, he exposes his cards far too soon and suffers as a result. Other than pure ego, there was no incentive for him to become so involved with Harry. Of course, that doesn’t make him any less powerful. At the end of the day, he’s the one who orchestrated the event that brought Harry and Voldemort one on one.

4. The muggle torturer: Corban Yaxley

One of the most terrifying death eaters from the Harry Potter series.
One of the Death Eaters who invaded Hogwarts and witnessed the death of Dumbledore: Corban Yaxley.

Yaxley was one of Voldemort’s most capable servants, and he was frequently deployed on critical assignments, which included assaulting some of his master’s most dangerous foes. He was present at the attack on Hogwarts’ Astronomy Tower, besides the Carrows and Draco Malfoy, and watched Dumbledore’s murder at Snape’s hand, according to the Harry Potter books. Despite his obvious abilities, Yaxley chose to work in the Ministry’s bureaucracy. He ruled the Ministry with an autocratic regime, viciously looking down on Muggle-born wizards, with Thicknesse as his puppet Minister. He was made the head of the Magical Law Enforcement department and took part in the interrogation and torture of Muggle-borns. Yaxley was taken to Azkaban to fulfill his punishment when Voldemort was defeated.

5. The Death Eater Spy: Severus Snape

One of the most terrifying Death Eaters.
Potions master at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry: Severus Snape.

As he demonstrated when he swept Harry Potter away towards the end of The Half-Blood Prince, this Death Eater was not only a distinguished Potions Master at Hogwarts but also a specialist in Defense Against the Dark Arts. His knowledge and understanding were unrivaled, and his expertise spanned every discipline, from poisons to occlumency, charms to transfiguration, and fighting against dark magic. Surprisingly, and something that very few people noticed, Snape also learned the most recent innovation in magical approach before his death ie. the trick of Unsupported Flight. Snape established himself among the Death Eaters, working against them at every turn without ever raising suspicion. He was a natural at playing each Death Eater, even tricking the Dark Lord himself.
