Top 10 Saddest Harry Potter Deaths

Sherilyn DeNucci

All three of the people in the world who have never read the Harry Potter series probably view it as a cutesy, childish series of whimsical adventure. However, seasoned Potterheads will tell them how mistaken they are. Tragedy is more common than uncommon starting in the fourth book, and many of the characters that we’d grown to know and love began to die. Though there are too many deaths to count in the series, these ten definitely stick out as the ten saddest. (Note: This is super subjective.)

Lupin and Tonks were incomplete without one another, so it feels wrong to list his death as sadder than hers. However, readers did have more time with Lupin — two whole books’ worth — so it’s understandable that we were hit slightly harder when Lupin passed.
