Small Details Fans Noticed About Voldemort, Bellatrix, and Lucius

List Rules
Vote up the most sinister details.

When it comes to the villains of the Potterverse, it doesn't get much worse than Voldemort, Bellatrix LeStrange, and Lucius Malfoy. On-screen, they are an evil, conniving trio who will stop at nothing to eliminate Harry and anyone at Hogwarts who poses a threat. Beyond their dark schemes, however, fans online have noticed some small details that make them even more sinister. For example, in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry feels pain in his scar when looking at Professor Snape... or does he? In truth, what causes his discomfort is the fact that Voldemort is hiding in plain sight on the back of Quirrel's head. In Deathly Hallows - Part 2, Bellatrix shows how truly deranged she is by dancing her way across a bridge into Hogwarts. Some of these details are even murderous. In Chamber of Secrets, before the spell is ever revealed to us as an audience, Lucius attempts to use the deadly Avada Kedarva on Harry in a hallway.

Check out this list of small details fans spotted about Voldemort, Bellatrix, and Lucius, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!
