I know a lot of people LOVE Snape. I, personally, don't get it. He's a child abuser and a (not at all reformed) death eater, and even though so many people swear he's reformed I don't buy that shit for one single second. He is always prancing around with his nose in the air acting like he is so much better than everyone else, and sure some people are just going to be snobs. But the fact that he also treats the students of Hogwarts horribly - he makes fun of Harry on the first day of classes, and in front of other students. He refuses to let Hermione get her teeth fixed when that spell goes awry. He repeatedly watches Draco and friends bullying Harry and does nothing about it. He calls Hermione an insufferable know-it-all, and in front of other students at that. There is so, so much more he's done. He deserves to be a worst literary villain.
Y'all come on - if you don't agree with this one, I can't even talk to you anymore! He killed James and Lily, he tried to kill Harry when Harry was just a baby, he turned himself into a cult leader and developed a legion of followers who were just as fanatical about killing and torturing people as he was. He recruited a teenager who was still a student at Hogwarts, then convinced said teen that HE HAD TO BE THE ONE TO KILL DUMBLEDORE!
Joffrey Lannister....*cough* I mean Baratheon *cough*
Responsible for the beheading of Ned Stark, allowed his men to hit and thus physically abuse Sansa (because he was told he could never hit her because a king never hits his queen), called for the death of many people because someone threw cow poop at his face, and ordered the death of all his fathers' illegitmate children. The list goes on, and on, and on. Is it any wonder that Joffrey would be on a list of least favorite villains? Not only is he one of my least favorite characters, he's one that I genuinely hate. I mean loathe with every fiber of my being. I can't think of a single character I hate as much as him (and that's pretty impressive, because I really hated Snape.)
