Severus Snape was infamous for his glares and snide comments... and also for his incredibly secretive, emotional journey throughout the Harry Potter series. Where would we be without Alan Rickman as the embodiment of the villain that we all learned to love - Professor Severus Snape? He brought the sneers, attitude, and sass of one of J.K. Rowling's most controversial characters to life, and now we're bringing you this definitive list of Snape's best glares. Whether you loved to hate him, or defended him as a misunderstood bad guy, this list of GIFs will bring back all of the Half-Blood Prince's most sassy memories.

From his incredulous looks at the arrogant Mr. Potter, to the look he gave Professor Lupin when he stole the position of Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher away from him, to commanding his potions class to turn to page 394, all your favorite Snape from Harry Potter glares are here. We'd like to honor Snape's trademark sneer, greasy hair, and immaculate robes in this tribute to the late Alan Rickman, in one of his most unforgettable roles.  

There will be no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations in this list. Vote up the best Snape glares below, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section. Will we remember him fondly? "Always."
