Ronald Bilius Weasley Blood status Marital status Also known as Signature Gender Male Hair colour Eye colour Skin colour Family members Patronus Jack Russell Terrier Occupation [Source] "I'm the sixth in our family to go to Hogwarts. You could say I got a lot to live up to. Bill and Charlie have already left — Bill was Head Boy and Charlie was captain of Quidditch.
Now Percy's a prefect. Fred and George mess around a lot, but they still get really good marks and everyone thinks they're really funny. Everyone expects me to do as well as the others, but if I do, it's no big deal, because they did it first." —Ron regarding his family and their expectations[src] Ronald Bilius"Ron" Weasley (b. 1 March, 1980) was a pure-bloodwizard, the sixth and youngest son of Arthur and Molly Weasley (née Prewett).
He was also the younger brother of Bill, Charlie, Percy, Fred, George, and the elder brother of Ginny. Ron and his brothers and sister lived at the Burrow, on the outskirts of Ottery St Catchpole. Ron began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1991 and was Sorted into Gryffindor House. He soon became best friends with fellow student Harry Potter and later Hermione Granger. Together, they faced many challenges during their adolescence, including keeping the Philosopher's Stone from Professor Quirinus Quirrell, saving Ginny from the Basilisk of the Chamber of Secrets, saving Harry's godfather Sirius Black from the Dementors of Azkaban, guiding Harry through the Triwizard Tournament, forming Dumbledore's Army and fighting in numerous battles of the Second Wizarding War: including the Battle of the Department of Mysteries (1996), Battle of the Astronomy Tower (1997), and Battle of the Seven Potters (1997).
Ron also became a Gryffindor prefect and a Keeper on the Gryffindor Quidditch team during his fifth year at Hogwarts. He skipped his last year of school in order to accompany Harry and Hermione on a hunt to destroy all of Lord Voldemort's Horcruxes and fought in the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998, during which he lost his brother Fred, a loss which devastated him and his family, especially George, his twin.
After the war, Ron became an Auror and helped reform and revolutionise the Ministry of Magic. After two years as an Auror, he went to work at Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes with his brother George. He and Hermione eventually married and had two children, Rose and Hugo Granger-Weasley. Ron was also named the godfather of James Sirius Potter, his sister Ginny Weasley's and Harry Potter's eldest child.
Biography Early life (1980-1991) "Fred and George tried to get me to make one when I was about five. I nearly did, too, I was holding hands with Fred and everything when Dad found us. He went mental. Only time I've ever seen Dad as angry as Mum. Fred reckons his left buttock has never been the same since!" —Ron on his brothers' attempt to get him to make an Unbreakable Vow[src] Ronald Bilius Weasley was born 1 March, 1980, to Arthur and Molly Weasley (née Prewett), at the height of the First Wizarding War.
During the first war his maternal uncles Fabian and Gideon Prewett, both members of the Order of the Phoenix, were murdered while fighting a group of four Death Eaters led by Antonin Dolohov. While he was still a toddler, the war ended for a time after Lord Voldemort's first defeat at the hands of Ron's classmate-to-be Harry Potter on 31 October, 1981. The Burrow, where Ron grew up with his family Ron and his five older brothers — Bill, Charlie, Percy, Fred and George — as well as his younger sister, Ginny, grew up in The Burrow on the outskirts of Ottery St Catchpole in Devon, England.
Like all his siblings, he was home educated in reading, writing and simple maths by his mother. The Weasley family was not wealthy at all, compared to other wizarding families. Many other pure-blood families, particularly the Malfoys, disdained them for their "blood traitor" beliefs and lack of wealth. They tried their best to make up for this with their love. The Weasley siblings, especially Fred and George, were fond of teasing and playing pranks on each other, and Ron was a particular target for Fred and George.
They once transfigured Ron's teddy bear into a giant spider, sparking his arachnophobia. On another occasion, the twins nearly got him to make an Unbreakable Vow, which finally made their father truly furious (and Fred would later state that his left buttock has "never been the same since" after the row that ensued). They also once got him to eat an Acid Pop which burnt a hole through his tongue. When Ron was younger, he had a pet rat named Scabbers, whom he had inherited from Percy.
This rat was actually Peter Pettigrew, a traitor to all wizard kind. Ron was very fond of Scabbers, but wasn't sad to let him go when he found out the truth about his old rat. Ron had a fairly happy childhood, which Harry, who had been brought up by his spiteful relatives the Dursleys, envied. To compensate for their impoverishment, Ron's mother indulged him in three delicious meals daily.
This became so habitual that missing a meal in later life would irritate Ron. Hogwarts years (1991-1997) First year "I have a few last-minute points to dish out. Let me see. First — to Mr Ronald Weasley... for the best-played game of chess Hogwarts has seen in many years, I award Gryffindor house fifty points." —Ron is awarded for winning the human chess match[src] The trio meet for the first time on the Hogwarts Express Ron began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1991 at the customary age of eleven.
He was Sorted into Gryffindor House, like every other Weasley. On his first trip on the Hogwarts Express, Ron met and became friends with the famous wizard Harry Potter. Harry let him share his carriage on the Hogwarts Express and purchased a large amount of wizarding snacks from the Hogwarts Express food trolley to share with him. Later on, Harry would stand up for Ron against Slytherin bully Draco Malfoy and Ron would elect to be his second for a midnight duel.
Ron and Harry first met Hermione Granger on the train but Ron did not particularly take to her. Ron, especially, was annoyed by what he saw as Hermione showing off her knowledge of magic, such as when she corrected him on the pronunciation of the incantation Wingardium Leviosa. Prior to the Hallowe'en feast, Ron said that she was a know-it-all and did not have any friends. Hermione overheard and went running to the girl's bathroom in tears.
That evening, during the Hallowe'en feast, it was announced that a mountain troll was loose in the school. Ron and Harry came to Hermione's rescue after hearing that she was in trouble, and she, in return, lied to protect them from Professor McGonagall. The three then became friends. Ron sacrificing himself in the chess game in the Philosopher's Stone Chambers During their first year, the three of them learnt that the Philosopher's Stone was being hidden in Hogwarts and sought to protect it from being stolen by Severus Snape, whom the young wizards believed to be working for Lord Voldemort.
Ron's talent in Wizard's Chess allowed them to pass one of the obstacles protecting the stone, which was a life-sized game. Ron sacrificed himself as a game piece so Harry could place the enemy king in checkmate, allowing Harry and Hermione to move on. Ultimately, it was discovered that Professor Quirrell was trying to steal the stone for Voldemort. Harry succeeded in defeating him and protecting the Philosopher's Stone, and Ron was awarded fifty House points by Albus Dumbledore for "the best played game of chess that Hogwarts has seen these many years," allowing Gryffindor to win the House Cup for the first time in seven years.
 Second year " RONALD WEASLEY! How dare you steal that car? I am absolutely disgusted! Your father's facing an inquiry at work, and it's entirely your fault! If you put another toe out of line, we'll bring you straight home! " —Molly Weasley's nasty howler[src] Ron and Harry flying a car to school in their second year Having not heard from Harry Potter during the whole summer of 1992, Ron, Fred and George Weasley, in a planned scheme to rescue him from 4 Privet Drive, drove Arthur Weasley's flying Ford Anglia to the Muggle town of Little Whinging and tore the bars from Harry's bedroom window using the car's horsepower.
Ron helped Harry get his things in the car, and they left for the Weasley House. Upon landing Ron and his brothers were ratted out by Molly Weasley for having taken such a risky course of action. At the start of that year's school term, Ron and Harry missed the Hogwarts Express due to the tricks of Dobby the house-elf and were forced to use the Ford Anglia to travel to Hogwarts. At the end of their journey, the car failed, causing the boys to crash-land into the Whomping Willow.
They were nearly killed when the tree shook, and the car jettisoned them and took off into the Forbidden Forest, where it remained. The writing on the wall and the petrified form of Mrs Norris Ron's wand was damaged in the crash, causing him problems for the entire school year. It backfired when Ron attempted to curse Draco Malfoy in payback for calling Hermione a "Mudblood". Malfoy's disdain towards Muggle-borns led Ron, Harry, and Hermione to suspect that he was the Heir of Slytherin who opened the Chamber of Secrets that year, unleashing a "monster" that began to attack Muggle-born students.
To investigate this theory, Hermione brewed Polyjuice Potion which greatly surprised Ron in that she was so overtly breaking the rules. When the time came to use the potion, Ron was made to impersonate Vincent Crabbe, and Harry impersonated Gregory Goyle, while Hermione's transformation was unsuccessful because she mistook hair from Millicent Bulstrode's cat for her own. Ron and Harry realised that Malfoy was not the Heir of Slytherin and were both greatly upset when Hermione became another victim of the "monster," ending up petrified in the Hospital Wing, though she left her friends a clue that led them to deduce that the monster was a basilisk.
Ron, Harry, and Lockhart stading in the Chamber of Secrets next to Basilisk skin Ron showed incredible bravery during the course of their investigation by venturing into the Forbidden Forest to an Acromantula den led by Aragog, in spite of his extreme fear of spiders. When he and Harry learned that Ginny (Ron's younger sister) was dying in the Chamber of Secrets, they raced to save her, planning to give their information to Professor Gilderoy Lockhart.
When the pair discovered that the professor was attempting to flee, they drew their wands on him and forced him to join them as they ventured into the Chamber of Secrets. Shortly after Ron, Harry, and Lockhart entered the Chamber, Lockhart attempted to wipe their memories in order to get out of the Chamber and take credit for their efforts in a bid for fame. Unfortunately for him, he used Ron's damaged wand, and the spell backfired, causing permanent amnesia in Lockhart.
Ron was left behind to tend to Lockhart, as Harry delved deeper into the Chamber, saving Ginny and defeating Salazar Slytherin's basilisk. Ron was honoured with a Special Award for Services to the School, as well as earning two hundred House points for Gryffindor for his work concerning re-sealing the Chamber of Secrets. Third year Harry Potter: "Where's the dog?" Ron: "Not a dog. Harry, it's a trap.
.. He's the dog... he's an Animagus." — Ron reveals that Sirius Black is an Animagus[src] Ron and his family in Egypt In the summer following Ron's second year at Hogwarts, the Weasleys won the Daily Prophet Grand Prize Galleon Draw. Ron and his family used the money to travel to Egypt to visit Ron's eldest brother, Bill. News of their lucky break made the Daily Prophet, and Ron sent that newspaper clipping and a Sneakoscope to Harry for his thirteenth birthday.
They met on the last day of the summer, when Ron and his family visited Diagon Alley with Harry and Hermione and took up rooms in the Leaky Cauldron in preparation for catching the Hogwarts Express. During their stay at the Leaky Cauldron, Ron shared a room with his brother Percy. Unfortunately, this led to a fight. Percy believed that Ron had taken his Head Boy badge, which had actually been stolen by Weasley twins Fred and George.
Harry found the twins hiding, enchanting the badge to say "Big Head Boy". Later, Ron was also accused of smudging a picture of Percy's girlfriend, Penelope Clearwater with tea. (Penelope thus hid herself outside the frame so nobody could see her splotched nose). Dementors board the Hogwarts Express in search of Sirius Black Also that summer, Sirius Black, the most famous prisoner in Azkaban, escaped, and in light of this incident, security was tightened at Hogwarts which Ron and his friends noticed when the Hogwarts Express was stopped and searched by Dementors.
Once at the school, Dumbledore announced that Dementors would be stationed around the school gates to prevent Black from entering Hogwarts. This was done under the assumption that Harry was being targeted by Black. Upon starting the term, the third years began taking new lessons. Ron and Harry had chosen Divination and Care of Magical Creatures, while Hermione decided to take every possible class offered and began to exhibit strange behaviour that neither Ron nor Harry could figure out.
The pair quickly decided that Divination was not a class they really liked and that the professor, Sybill Trelawney, was a fraud. Ron's first Care of Magical Creatures was a disaster. Hagrid, the new Care of Magical Creatures professor, had planned what he thought to be a spectacular class on hippogriffs, when a hippogriff named Buckbeak attacked Draco Malfoy after Malfoy had insulted the rare creature, causing Malfoy to promise revenge.
Also during that week, Ron had his first Defence Against the Dark Arts class with the new professor, Remus Lupin, and in short order Ron thought that Lupin was an excellent professor. Ron, Harry, and Hermione at Hogsmeade On Hallowe'en, Ron and Hermione went on their first Hogsmeade trip. Harry, however, could not join them as his Uncle Vernon had not signed his Hogsmeade permission slip. Meanwhile, Ron and Hermione visited every building in Hogsmeade and brought back loads of sweets from Honeydukes for Harry.
That evening, Sirius Black sneaked into Hogwarts, and the students were forced to spend the night in the Dining Hall. Just before Christmas, Rubeus Hagrid received a complaint from the Committee for the Disposal of Dangerous Creatures about Buckbeak the hippogriff. When he shared this incident with Ron, Harry, and Hermione, the trio promised to do everything in their power to help defend Buckbeak.
Ron and Harry put the defence of Buckbeak on the back-burner when on Christmas Day, Harry received a Firebolt broomstick from a mysterious sender. When Hermione, afraid for Harry's safety, turned the Firebolt in, Ron stopped talking to Hermione. The Firebolt incident only added to the rough tension between the two, as Hermione's new pet Crookshanks had been continually trying to attack Ron's rat, Scabbers.
A few weeks later, when the two were on the verge of making up, Scabbers disappeared and Ron blamed Crookshanks, threatening the friendship between them. Ron riding Harry's Firebolt for the first time on the Hogwarts Quidditch pitch In the meantime, Black was yet to be found, and the night following the Gryffindor vs Ravenclaw Quidditch match, he sneaked into Gryffindor tower. Hearing the sound of ripping bed curtains, Ron awoke with a start to see Sirius Black standing over him holding a knife.
He screamed, and Black fled. This incident made Ron famous among the other students, but he came back down to Earth when Hagrid scolded him and Harry about their treatment of Hermione, who Hagrid told them was in over her head with all of her classes and the work she was doing for Buckbeak. Shocked, the pair patched things up with her a few days later, when they received a letter from Hagrid saying that Buckbeak had been sentenced to execution.
With exams coming up, the trio set about studying and attempting to help Hagrid with Buckbeak's appeal. The appeal took place on the last day of their exams. Hearing that Buckbeak had lost, and was to be executed, Ron, Harry and Hermione went to visit Hagrid in the evening just before the execution. They offered to help set the record straight, but Hagrid told them that they would be in big trouble if they were seen.
Helping the sobbing Hagrid make tea, Hermione found Scabbers hiding inside a milk jar. Soon they were hurried out the back of the hut, all the while they continued to lobby for a chance to set the record straight. When they heard what sounded like the killing, Ron, Harry and Hermione set off for Hogwarts in a slight state of shock. Sirius Black captures Ron and drags him to the Whomping Willow Before they made it back there, Scabbers began to squirm in Ron's hands and escaped.
Not wanting to lose his rat again, Ron chased after Scabbers with Harry and Hermione behind him. He caught up to Scabbers, but not before they were in the shadow of the Whomping Willow tree. He looked up to see a large black dog bearing down upon him. The dog dived at Ron and gripping Ron's arm in its mouth, it dragged him into the Whomping Willow. To try and stop the dog from pulling him further, Ron tied his feet around a tree branch, but the dog's grip was so powerful his leg snapped.
When the dog reached the Shrieking Shack, it let go of Ron and revealed itself to be Sirius Black. Sirius ambushed Harry and Hermione, disarming them when they entered the room where Ron was being held hostage. Upon seeing him, Harry attacked Black with Hermione and the seriously injured Ron helping in any way they could, but Harry could not bring himself to finish the job when he had Black in his power, and he was disarmed by Professor Lupin.
Relieved at the sight of Lupin, Ron became worried when Lupin and Black greeted each other like brothers and demanded that Ron turn over his rat, Scabbers. Sirius and Lupin then told them about their own years spent at Hogwarts and how a wizard named Peter Pettigrew betrayed Harry's parents to Voldemort then framed Sirius and transformed into a rat to go into hiding. Still not fully convinced, Ron reluctantly handed over Scabbers when Lupin promised that if he was actually a rat, no harm would come to him.
Scabbers was revealed to be Pettigrew, whom Sirius had recognised due to a missing toe. (Pettigrew has cut off one of his own fingers before transforming). A tearful Pettigrew confessed to the betrayal and begged for mercy from his former friends. Ron in the Hospital Wing with his broken leg unable to walk When it was decided that Pettigrew should be turned over to the Dementors, Lupin splinted Ron's leg, and the assembled company left for Hogwarts.
Along the way, the full moon broke out, and Lupin began to transform into a werewolf. In the skirmish, Pettigrew stole Lupin's wand, stunned Ron, and escaped into the moonlight. Hours later in the Hospital Wing where he was recovering both from his broken leg and Pettigrew's attack, Ron was told that Harry and Hermione had managed to save Sirius and Buckbeak from the Dementor's Kiss with Hermione's time turner.
He understood why Hermione did not immediately mention the time turner. Ron was slightly dismayed but, now knew the reason for her strange behaviour and timetable earlier on, he was nevertheless relieved that Sirius and Buckbeak were both safe and free. For some reason, Madam Pomfrey, who claimed that she can "mend bones in a heartbeat...", on this occasion had Ron remain in the hospital wing with his leg heavily bandaged despite the nurse's previous claims.
Perhaps there were complications with his injury considering that he spent a long time in the Shrieking Shack then outside while Lupin transformed into a werewolf and his leg was harmed even further over the course of the evening; for example "Ron yelled with pain when Black toppled over his broken leg," and he possibly hurt it further when Pettigrew attacked him. As a replacement for his lost pet, Sirius sent Ron a tiny owl, which Ginny immediately named Pigwidgeon because she thought the name was "sweet"; annoyed and disgusted at this, Ron tried to choose another name, but it was too late, so he settled for using the nickname "Pig".
Fourth year "Look, it's always you who gets all the attention, you know it is. I know it's not your fault. I know you don't ask for it...but — well — you know, Ron's got all those brothers to compete against at home, and you're his best friend, and you're really famous — he's always shunted to one side whenever people see you, and he puts up with it, and he never mentions it, but I suppose this is just one time too many.
.." —Ron's jealousy after Harry's name came out of the Goblet of Fire[src] Ron at the 1994 Quidditch World cup with his friends and family In the summer of 1994, Ron invited Harry and Hermione to accompany the Weasleys to the Quidditch World Cup, which was being held in Britain for the first time in decades. While Hermione joined the Weasleys at the Burrow, Harry had to be picked up from the Dursleys.
Arthur Weasley arranged to pick up Harry via Floo Network, not knowing that the Dursleys' fireplace was blocked, so when Ron, Arthur, Fred, and George tried to fetch Harry they ended up stuck in the chimney. Part of the Dursley's house was destroyed before Harry returned to the Weasley's house. The following day, Harry, Hermione, and all the Weasleys except Molly Weasley left for the Quidditch World Cup, where they set up camp and met many of their friends from Hogwarts or the Ministry.
They had prime seats for the match, thanks to Mr Weasley, who had helped Ludo Bagman, Head of the Department of Magical Games and Sports, out of a messy problem. During the match Ron watched Viktor Krum, the Bulgarian Seeker, play an excellent match and catch the Snitch. Even though Krum caught the Snitch the Irish National Quidditch Team still won the match. Ron, Harry, and Hermione after the riot at the Quidditch World Cup That night, while the Irish supporters were still awake celebrating their victory, trouble began.
Some Death Eaters who had managed to avoid imprisonment in Azkaban, attacked the camp where Ron and his friends and family were staying. Mr Weasley ordered Ron, Harry, Hermione, Fred, George, and Ginny to get to safety, while he and the older Weasley children set off to help the Ministry of Magic. Fred and George were responsible for Ginny's safety, which left the trio to themselves. Running off into the woods, Ron, Hermione, and Harry quickly lost Fred, George and Ginny, but they did find Draco Malfoy.
Malfoy meanly suggested that Hermione, being a Muggle-Born, could easily be targeted by the Death Eaters, causing Ron to insist that she and Harry join him in going deeper into the woods. Soon they reached a patch of woods giving off a silver glow, where the trio found a few Veela witches surrounded by admirers. Ron was entranced and stated that he would create a broom that would fly to space. They had reached an empty clearing when they heard an unknown person cast the Dark Mark.
The trio during a Defence Against the Dark Arts lesson on the Unforgivable Curses On 1 September, Ron and his friends departed for Hogwarts aboard the Hogwarts Express. That evening at the Welcoming Feast, Dumbledore announced that Hogwarts would host the Triwizard Tournament. Ron found himself caught up in dreams of being a Triwizard Champion, but he was snapped back to reality by his fourth year classes.
In Care of Magical Creatures, Hagrid had his students tending to Blast-Ended Skrewts, and in Defence Against the Dark Arts, Ron was impressed by the new professor, "Mad-Eye" Moody, when he taught the class about the three Unforgivable Curses. It was announced that the students from the Durmstrang Institute and Beauxbatons Academy of Magic would be arriving at Hogwarts on 30 October. Ron was dumbstruck when he saw Viktor Krum among the Durmstrang students, not realising how young his hero was.
He was disappointed when Krum sat among the Slytherin students. An angry Ron and an upset Hermione watch as Harry's name comes out of the Goblet of Fire Having discussed the possibility of somehow outsmarting the Goblet of Fire and the Age Line that Dumbledore had cast around it, Ron was surprised to find that Harry's name had come out of the Goblet of Fire. Jealous of the fact that Harry always seemed to receive all the attention, Ron refused to accept that Harry didn't put his name in the cup.
He even went as far as to accuse Harry of cheating his way into the tournament. After the argument, he and Harry stopped talking to each other, and Ron began hanging out with other Gryffindors like Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnigan. When Ron heard Harry talking to someone one night, he went down to see who it was since Harry didn't tell him about such a thing. Ron was deeply offended when Harry accused him of trying to spy on him and when he told him who he talked to was none of his business to the point where he tried to get Harry to tell him who he was talking to by accusing him of practising for an interview.
This only made Harry throw one of Draco Malfoy's badges at him and tell him he could wear that during the First Task. This made Ron realise that he had lost Harry's trust and respect to the point where Harry no longer saw him as a friend. Ron and Harry did not talk to each other again until after the First Task of the Triwizard tournament. Seeing just how much danger was involved in the First Task, Ron realised Harry would never have put his own name into the Goblet of Fire, and the two became best friends once again.
Ron with his date at the Yule Ball Soon after the first task, Professor McGonagall told Ron and the other Gryffindor boys about the traditional Yule Ball, held during the Triwizard Tournament. While all students above fourth year scampered around trying to find dates, Ron and Harry found it hard to ask girls to the ball. Struck by the beauty and charm of Fleur Delacour, the Triwizard Champion from Beauxbatons Academy and a part-Veela witch, Ron asked her to attend the ball with him, but fled in embarrassment without waiting for an answer.
He also offended Hermione by not asking her, and then by suggesting that she did not have a date and thus could accompany him. Harry was eventually able to get them both dates with twins Parvati and Padma Patil. Ron's evening was a fiasco of the first sort. His "traditional" dress robes embarrassed him and his date, Padma Patil, and when Ron saw Hermione with Viktor Krum, he became intensely jealous.
This led to a blazing argument between them during the end of the Yule Ball Ron made comments about Krum being to old for her. Though their friendship did not suffer, it was clear that both had developed feelings for each other. Harry retrieving a captive Ron during the second task During the Yule Ball, Ron had overheard Hagrid telling the Beaubaxtons Headmistress Olympe Maxime that he was half-giant.
This information was also overheard by Daily Prophet Reporter Rita Skeeter, who wrote an article telling the wizarding world of Hagrid's heritage. This drove Hagrid to stop teaching for a time until Ron, Harry, and Hermione told him that they he was still their friend, no matter what. On 24 February, Ron was put into an enchanted sleep and tied up at the bottom of the Black Lake, to be "rescued" by Harry as part of the second task of the Triwizard Tournament.
When he found out that Harry had stayed behind to save Fleur's sister Gabrielle Delacour as well, Ron jokingly took him to task, but was impressed when Harry was given extra points for "outstanding moral fibre". Fleur thanked Ron and Harry in turn for helping save Gabrielle, kissing both of them on the cheek. Ron gained much attention from the other students due to his being taken hostage for the task.
He proceeded to exaggerate the events of what happened until Hermione called him on it. Ron was present when the Minister for Magic visited Harry in the hospital wing Early in the spring, Ron joined Harry and Hermione in visiting Sirius Black, who had taken to hiding in Hogsmeade. There, they discussed the disappearances of Ministry officials Barty Crouch Snr and Bertha Jorkins. In the weeks leading up to the final tournament task, Ron and Hermione helped Harry prepare by researching and trying out different jinxes and other helpful spells for the task.
Ron and Hermione watched Harry together from the sidelines. They were shocked when Harry returned with Cedric Diggory's dead body. Ron was relieved to see Harry when he was brought to the infirmary by Professor Dumbledore, eagerly wanted to question Harry about Diggory, but he was told off by Molly Weasley who, along with his brother Bill Weasley, had come to watch Harry. Ron was furious with the Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, when he refused to believe Harry and Dumbledore, and calmed Molly when she was shocked by Black's appearance in the room.
Ron did not go against Harry's story when he finally heard it, sticking by his best friend. Fifth year "Weasley cannot save a thing, he cannot block a single ring.That's why Slytherins all sing, Weasley is our king!..." —Slytherins mock Ron's Keeper abilities[src] Ron with others in 12 Grimmauld Place preparing to clean After Voldemort rose to power and the Second Wizarding War began, Dumbledore reformed the Order of the Phoenix.
In the summer of 1995, the Order moved into their headquarters at 12 Grimmauld Place with the Weasley schoolchildren and Hermione Granger, where they helped Molly Weasley clean the old house and remained watchful for information about Harry. In August, Harry arrived at the headquarters after a Dementor attack on his cousin. Ron felt sorry that he had to keep Harry oblivious to the Order's plan and soon learnt that Harry's anger had been growing due to his isolation from his friends and his persecution by the media.
Ron, Harry and Hermione stayed at Grimmauld Place throughout August. In late August, Ron and Hermione were made a Gryffindor prefect, for which Molly and Arthur gave Ron a new Cleansweep Eleven. Bound by their prefect duties, Ron and Hermione were separated from Harry on the Hogwarts Express and could only join Harry in his compartment for the last part of the journey. When they arrived, Ron expressed concern that Hagrid was not at the welcoming feast and was suspicious of the new Defence Against the Dark Arts professor, Dolores Umbridge.
The first DADA class with Umbridge as the professor At school, Ron was one of the many students who expressed frustration with Professor Umbridge's refusal to teach the class practical defensive magic. He also won the position of Keeper on the Gryffindor Quidditch team but was described by the team captain as "needing improvement". Ron's Quidditch practise caused him to fall behind in his schoolwork, to Hermione's chagrin.
Soon, Ron's brother Percy Weasley sent him a letter advising him not to remain friends with Harry, whom he accused of being mad for supporting Dumbledore. Late in September, one evening when Harry returned from detention with Professor Umbridge, Ron, somewhat reluctantly, joined Hermione in convincing that Harry teach his fellow students defence against the dark arts. Harry initially disagreed, but after a few days he decided to give it a go.
Around this time, Professor Umbridge was appointed the first Hogwarts High Inquisitor, giving her the power to randomly create new school rules and inspect teachers' lessons. The meeting of students in the Hog's Head that would become known as Dumbledore's Army Late in October, students had their first visit to Hogsmeade. There, Harry, Ron, and Hermione met with several students who were interested in learning proper defence.
Ron defended Harry when questions rose, and was among the first to sign the recruitment parchment. On the way home from Hogsmeade, Ron became upset when he learned from Hermione that his sister Ginny was dating Ravenclaw student Michael Corner. The following morning, Ron awoke to find that suddenly, by order of Professor Umbridge, all student groups had been disbanded including the House Quidditch teams, but he was mollified when Harry said they would continue with their secret group, which Ginny named "Dumbledore's Army" during their first meeting, mocking the Ministry of Magic's fears of student uprisings.
In the weeks following the first Dumbledore's Army meeting, Quidditch season arrived. Ron had nervous issues prior to the first match against Slytherin. They had made badges saying "Weasley is our king," which Harry decided could not mean anything good. In an attempt to distract Ron from the Slytherins, Hermione kissed him on the cheek for luck, effectively stunning Ron. Ron's play was abysmal, and it was not helped by the Slytherins' new song also entitled, "Weasley is Our King".
Following the game, Ron wanted to resign, but learned he could not, as Harry Potter, Fred and George Weasley had been banned for life. That evening, Hagrid returned from his unknown disappearance. Although initially resistant, he regaled Ron, Hermione, and Harry with his tales of the giants, though he refused to give them any hint about his gruesome injuries from Golgomath's tribe. Harry informs the Weasleys of their father's attack at the Ministry Following Hagrid's return, he took up his post as Care of Magical Creatures professor.
In Hagrid's first lesson, Ron learned about Thestrals, magical creatures that could only be seen by wizards and witches who had witnessed death. Frequent Dumbledore's Army meetings, O.W.L. homework, and his prefect duties took up most of Ron's time as the holidays approached. Following the last meeting of the term, Ron was amazed at Harry's "romantic" tale, earning him a stern talking to from Hermione who suggested that Ron had "the emotional range of a teaspoon.
" That night, Harry witnessed Ron's father, Arthur Weasley, being attacked by Lord Voldemort's snake, Nagini. When Harry's story was confirmed by Dumbledore and McGonagall, Ron, his siblings, and Harry were immediately sent to the Order's Headquarters, so they could look in on their father's convalescence, and there they spent the Christmas holidays, joined by Hermione the next day. During their first trip to St Mungo's Hospital, Ron overheard "Mad Eye" Moody thinking that Harry had been possessed by Voldemort.
Ron was worried when Harry became quiet after the visit and wanted to talk to Harry about it. He got his chance after Hermione arrived and convinced Harry to come downstairs. Ron, Hermione, and Ginny told Harry how worried they had been and managed to confess that he was not being possessed. They had an enjoyable holiday, but on their second visit to the hospital, Ron learned the truth about the torture of Neville Longbottom's parents.
Ron with siblings Fred and George, and Ginny practising with the D.A. Throughout the term, Ron continued to learn defensive and offensive magic from Harry. He also stayed on the Gryffindor Quidditch team, despite his very poor performances. Due to Quidditch, he missed the Valentine's Day visit to Hogsmeade. Though, he was impressed that Harry went public and hopeful that people might believe Harry when The Quibbler came out.
Soon, Umbridge managed to sack Professor Trelawney, but her ability to name a replacement was pre-empted when Dumbledore arranged to have Firenze the Centaur teach the subject. Umbridge was affronted by this new staffing appointment. Soon after Trelawney's sacking, Marietta Edgecombe, a friend of Ravenclaw Student Cho Chang's who only reluctantly joined Dumbledore's Army, told Umbridge about the group, but was unable to give up any pertinent information once she saw a jinx activate on her face.
Ron was able to escape when Umbridge, raided the Dumbledore's Army headquarters, but he was incensed when Professor Dumbledore was forced out of the school. He was also wary when his brothers Fred and George Weasley said they were going to do their part for Professor Dumbledore. After Fred and George's secret escape from Hogwarts, Ron was certain that his mother would blame him, but he was saved from this fate when Harry revealed that it was he who financed Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes.
Ron and other D.A. members being held captive by Umbridge Ron played in the final Quidditch match of the season, though Harry and Hermione did not watch, as Hagrid finally revealed the source of his injuries to them. Ron played better, and Gryffindor won the Quidditch Cup. Ron was unable to settle to his studies the following day, but Harry and Hermione brought him down with Hagrid's secret injuries.
Soon, their Ordinary Wizarding Level exams were upon them. Ron managed to do very well, but he made a few mistakes. During their final exam, Harry dozed off and had another vision. This time, he saw Sirius being tortured by Voldemort in the Ministry. When Harry told Ron and Hermione of this they were wary, and Hermione suggested that Harry try to contact Sirius first. Ron ran off to distract Umbridge, but the plan failed, and Ron and his friends were rounded up and taken to Umbridge's office.
There, Ron, Ginny, Neville, and Luna Lovegood managed to fight off Umbridge and her Slytherin Guards and escape to find Harry and Hermione outside the forest. Ron, Luna, Neville, Harry, Hermione, and Ginny in the Death Chamber Ron insisted that he join Harry in rescuing Sirius, but also insisted that the rest remain behind, but realised when many Thestrals appeared. When Harry led them into the Department of Mysteries, Ron stuck with him into the deepest recesses of the Department.
There, the six Dumbledore's Army members were ambushed by twelve Death Eaters, led by wizarding aristocrat Lucius Malfoy, and Ron helped defend the prophecy Harry took from the Hall Of Prophecies, but his fight was soon over as a Death Eater had wiped his brains. Ron was so confused that he summoned a tentacled-brain from a vat in the Thought Chamber and was attacked by it. Ron soon recovered. Ron was devastated by Sirius's death, but Hermione made sure that Sirius's death was not discussed around Harry.
Sixth year Hermione Granger: "You said to us once before that there was time to turn back if we wanted to. We've had time, haven't we?" Ron: "We're with you, whatever happens." — A commit to Harry and his Horcrux hunt[src] During the summer following the battle, Ron learned he had received seven O.W.L.s, only failing Divination and History of Magic. Ron explained he did not mind, as he wasn't planning to take those in his sixth year, regardless.
Also during that summer, Ron learned that his brother Bill was engaged to Fleur Delacour. While this annoyed his mother, sister, and later Hermione, Ron took to defending Fleur and if she surprised him, he would still take on that dumbstruck look. His soft spot for Fleur particularly annoyed Hermione, who was finding it harder to keep her feelings for him under wraps. When Ron and Hermione learned that Harry was in fact the "Chosen One," Ron remained at Harry's side.
Ron trying out as Keeper for the Gryffindor Quidditch team Ron would suffer much personal turmoil in his sixth year. Harry was named Gryffindor team captain. Ron was nervous about Quidditch try-outs, but beat out Cormac McLaggen in saves, partly because Hermione cast a Confundus Charm on McLaggen in retaliation for him insulting Ron and Ginny. He was also envious when Harry and Hermione were invited to the Slug Club, while the new Potions professor Horace Slughorn ignored him, and when attention was paid to him, Slughorn usually got his name wrong.
During this time, Ron showed brief flashes of jealousy about Harry and Hermione's closeness. He would take exception whenever Hermione complimented Harry on something Ron thought was equally due to him. Ron was temporarily mollified about this when Hermione asked if he would like to attend the club's Christmas party with her, and he agreed, but thought it was only as friends. Ron playing as Keeper against Slytherin in the first match of the year Ron was also worried over his sister's increasing involvement with boys, and after stumbling upon her kissing Dean Thomas, he blew up at her.
In retaliation, Ginny belittled him for his complete inexperience with the opposite gender, declaring that Harry and Hermione had also snogged people. The siblings treated each other coldly afterwards, and Ron was so bothered by this — and by the revelation that Hermione had kissed Viktor Krum almost two years earlier — that he began to perform poorly in Quidditch. He also began to treat Hermione with a cold indifference, which confused her.
He even offered to resign from the team. To boost his confidence, Harry pretended to pour the Felix Felicis into Ron's pumpkin juice at breakfast. Harry even allowed Hermione to see the vial, so she would object to the cheating. This convinced Ron that he had an edge in the game, which caused him to play excellently. However, when after the match Harry revealed it was a trick, Ron rounded on Hermione and accused her of having no faith in his abilities.
Shortly thereafter, Ron began his exhibitionist relationship with Lavender Brown. Hermione, incredibly angry and hurt by Ron's vindictive actions, conjured a flock of canaries to attack him; the birds scratched Ron badly, and he and Hermione stopped talking to each other. Hermione attended the Slug Club's Christmas party, she had originally wanted to attend with Ron but went with his hated rival, Cormac McLaggen, while Ron snogged Lavender in public and made fun of Hermione's behaviour in Transfiguration class, reducing her to tears.
By Christmas break, however, Ron was becoming disenchanted with his relationship with Lavender, who had become increasingly possessive, annoyed him with the nickname "Won-Won," and gave him a gift of a necklace that said "My Sweetheart". Hermione did not come to the Burrow for the holidays, as she usually did, and Ron made an attempt to speak to her after returning to school, but she ignored him. Ron having a fit after ingesting the poisoned mead On 1 March 1997, Ron ate chocolate that he believed to be one of the presents for his 17th birthday, but was in fact a gift from Romilda Vane to Harry spiked with a love potion.
He found the box on the floor after Harry had chucked it out of his trunk thinking in was apart of his pile of presents by the foot of his bed. Upon ingesting the chocolate, Ron became maddened with an obsessive need to see and be with Romilda. Harry thinking fast proceeded to take Ron to Slughorn's office to get an antidote. When in Slughorn's office while Harry attempted to get Slughorn in a good mood hoping to get the true memory from him, Ron was nearly killed by poisoned mead intended for Albus Dumbledore.
Harry managed to save Ron with a bezoar. The bezoar was one Slughorn had in his kit taken from a previous potions lesson. If it wasn't for Harry's timely actions and quick thinking Ron would have died. Ron being visited by Hermione while in the hospital wing after being poisoned A panic-stricken Hermione arrived at the Hospital Wing, forgetting her anger with him. Ron said Hermione's name in his sleep upon hearing her speak for the first time all day, and the two quietly reconciled after his near-death experience.
Ron also took to feigning sleep whenever Lavender tried to visit him. He remained in the hospital the following week and was not able to play Keeper on Saturday 8 March for the Gryffindor vs Hufflepuff Quidditch match. On Monday 10 March Ron and Harry, who suffered a cracked skull from a mishit Bludger during the match, were able to leave the hospital wing, although Ron did not tell Lavender this.
 His subsequent avoidance of Lavender and simultaneous spending more time with Hermione made Lavender suspicious; after she spotted him and Hermione leaving the boys' dormitories, seemingly alone (Harry was with them, but under his Cloak of Invisibility), Lavender ended the relationship, much to Ron's relief. A little later, Ron was suitably impressed when Harry told him and Hermione how he managed to obtain the Horcrux memory from Professor Slughorn.
A few weeks later, when Harry used Sectumsempra on Draco Malfoy, Ron lent his potions book to Harry, so Professor Snape would not confiscate the Half-Blood Prince's book. The funeral of Albus Dumbledore On the night of the Battle of the Astronomy Tower, Ron took Felix Felicis on Harry's instructions, along with Hermione and Ginny. Those three were joined by Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood, whom Hermione had summoned using the D.
A. coins. While Hermione and Luna monitored Professor Snape's office, Ron and the others watched the Room of Requirement. Ron fought in the battle and survived without any major injuries, thanks to the Felix Felicis. He was shaken by his oldest brother Bill's scarring at the hands of the vicious werewolf Fenrir Greyback. Shortly afterwards, Ron attended the funeral of Albus Dumbledore, where he comforted a sobbing Hermione.
He and Hermione informed Harry of their intention to accompany him on a quest to locate and destroy the Horcruxes of Lord Voldemort, forgoing their seventh year of school. Horcrux Hunt (1997-1998) Harry Potter: "If you think I’m going to let six people risk their lives — !" Ron: "—because it’s the first time for all of us." — A argument over the seven Potters plan[src] During the summer of 1997, Ron began planning ahead for his mission with Harry and Hermione.
With the help of his father and Fred and George Weasley, Ron transfigured the family ghoul to resemble himself sick with spattergroit, which would serve as his alibi for not attending his seventh year of Hogwarts while travelling with his friends. Battle of the Seven Potters "Ron was great. Wonderful. Stunned one of the Death Eaters, straight to the head, and when you're aiming at a moving target from a flying broom —" —Ron's helpfulness during the battle[src] The Seven Harrys and their protectors preparing to take off In late July, he participated in the Order's operation to remove Harry from his childhood home, taking Polyjuice Potion to be one of the "seven Potters.
" He flew with Nymphadora Tonks; they were pursued by at least three Death Eaters during the battle, including Bellatrix and Rodolphus Lestrange. Ron stunned one of the Death Eaters in the face while flying. Ron reassured Hermione by nuzzling her back slightly upon landing as she had been quite worried about him and he was saddened at the death of "Mad-Eye" Moody. He was also saddened by the death of Harry's beloved pet owl Hedwig, over which he comforted Harry.
Ron became concerned when Harry had a vision of an imprisoned Garrick Ollivander being brutally tortured by Lord Voldemort in the cellar at Malfoy Manor. Ron, Harry, and Hermione during the reading of Albus Dumbledore's will Once Ron, Harry, and Hermione were all convened at the Burrow, they made plans to leave, much to the displeasure of Ron's worried mother. During the preparations for Bill's wedding, Mrs Weasley set Ron, Harry, and Hermione to separate tasks to prevent them from planning.
On Harry's seventeenth birthday, Ron gave Harry a copy of Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches. Later that evening, Minister for Magic Rufus Scrimgeour visited the Burrow to dispense the contents of Dumbledore's will. He questioned the trio, and Ron let slip that they had no idea why Dumbledore would bequeath anything to him. Ron received Dumbledore's Deluminator. Escape from the Burrow Ron : "You know, we're not far from the Leaky Cauldron here, it's only in Charing Cross —" Hermione Granger: "Ron, we can't!" Ron : "Not to stay there, but to find out what's going on!" Hermione Granger: "We know what's going on! Voldemort's taken over the Ministry, what else do we need to know?" — The trio looking for a safe place to stay after escaping the Burrow[src] The trio attended the wedding for which, all summer, they had been forced to prepare the Burrow; the marrying couple was Ron's older brother Bill to Fleur Delacour on 1 August.
Ron was irked and jealous that Viktor Krum was a guest, especially since he immediately complimented Hermione, who Ron quickly asked to dance shortly afterwards. When Viktor Krum asked who he thought was Barny Weasley (though it was really Harry in disguise) about the pair, he was somewhat disappointed to learn that they were "sort of" together, but not officially a couple. Ron casting a Stunning Spell in the café while battling Death Eaters The celebrations were interrupted with the news that the Ministry of Magic had fallen to Voldemort, and Hermione Disapparated herself, Ron, and Harry away from the danger to Tottenham Court Road.
This was the starting point to the trio's adventure and search for the Horcruxes they needed to bring down Lord Voldemort. After they arrived at Luchino café they were ambushed by Death Eaters Antonin Dolohov and Thorfinn Rowle there and a skirmish broke out. After stunning and wiping the memories of the Death Eaters, the trio took refuge in Harry's inherited house 12 Grimmauld Place left to him by Sirius Black.
Infiltration of the Ministry of Magic Ron: "Dad said everyone from Magical Maintenance wears navy blue robes." Hermione Granger: "But you never told us that!" — Discussion of the Ministry infiltration plan[src] Mundungus talking to the trio about the Horcrux locket There, the trio learned from Kreacher that Regulus Black had stolen the Horcrux Voldemort had made of Slytherin's Locket in 1979, and that it had been stolen from 12 Grimmauld Place by Mundungus Fletcher.
Under interrogation, he informed them that the locket was now in the possession of Dolores Umbridge. While they were waiting for Kreacher to fetch Mundungus, they were visited by Remus Lupin. He informed the trio about the goings on in the wider wizarding world. He told them that Harry was now the most wanted wizard in Britain and that Muggle-born witches and wizards were being rounded up. Ron immediately said that he would vouch for Hermione.
The trio disguised during their infiltration of the ministry. Ron is on the far right They formulated a plan to infiltrate the Ministry, involving the use of Polyjuice Potion to assume the forms of Ministry employees Reginald Cattermole, Albert Runcorn and Mafalda Hopkirk. Ron, disguised as Reginald Cattermole, quickly found himself forced to separate from his friends, as Death Eater and new head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, Yaxley, demanded that "Cattermole" fix the rain in his office.
Ron was in over his head, but may have found a solution to the problem after asking Arthur, who had no idea of Ron's true identity, for help. The trio reunited after Harry and Hermione stole the locket from Umbridge and freed some Muggle-born witches and wizards being held by the Muggle-Born Registration Commission, and then escaped, but were forced to abandon Grimmauld Place as a hideout. Ron splinched himself during their escape into the countryside and was weakened by his injury.
After receiving some treatment from Hermione, Ron fretted over the fate of the Cattermoles. Exit and Homecoming Ron: "You don't know why I listen to that radio every night, do you? To make sure I don't hear Ginny's name. Or Fred, or George, or Mum!" Harry Potter: "What, you think I'm not listening too? You think I don't know how this feels?!" Ron: "No, you don't know it feels! Your parents are dead; you have no family!" — Ron lashes out against Harry resulting in an intense row[src] Ron and Harry fight right before Ron abandons the Horcrux hunt Afterward, weeks passed with no further progress.
This, as well as the locket's negative influence, caused great tension and animosity amongst the group of friends. When he wore the locket, Ron was sullen and suspicious, lashing out at his friends and continuously complaining. Ron abruptly abandoned his friends one evening after getting into a fight with Harry over the additional task of locating Godric Gryffindor's Sword in order to destroy the locket.
He accused Harry of having no plan and of not being very concerned about Ginny, whom they had learned was punished back at Hogwarts. When Ron asked if Hermione was going with him and she told him that she was staying, he accused her of choosing Harry over him, and left, despite Hermione screaming and crying for him to come back. As soon as he was outside the influence of the Horcrux, Ron came to his senses and tried to return.
However, he had a run-in with Snatchers first, who interrogated him. Ron claimed to be Stan Shunpike, and then took an opportunity to escape. He apparated numerous times to try to find Harry and Hermione, splinching fingernails off at one point, but could not find them. He then went to stay with Bill and Fleur at their new home, Shell Cottage. Soon after Christmas, Ron used the Deluminator Dumbledore bequeathed him to locate his friends.
Ron returns to the hunt and destroys the locket Horcrux Ron made his way to the Forest of Dean, where he arrived just in time to rescue Harry from drowning in a semi-frozen pond. When Ron attempted to use Godric Gryffindor's Sword to destroy the locket, horrible incorporeal images of Harry and Hermione came forth which cruelly mocked Ron about his many insecurities, including his fears that Hermione would choose Harry over Ron.
This brought Ron to the point of tears. However, Ron successfully stabbed the Horcrux with Godric Gryffindor's Sword. Afterwards, Harry took Ron aside to assuage his fears about Harry and Hermione. Saving Harry's life earned him Harry's forgiveness, but Hermione — who was unaware of what the Horcrux had done — was still furious with him for his abandonment for some time and attacked him mercilessly upon sight until Harry cast a Shield Charm to stop her.
 Ambush at Lovegood House "Aha! That's got to be Luna's house, who else would live in a place like that? It looks like a giant rook!" —Ron describing the Lovegood's house[src] Upon his return, Ron was happy to the point of giddiness, because he thought that they had an ally out there somewhere. He sought to hide this happiness when around Hermione in an act of contrition. When Hermione proposed a trip to the Lovegood's house to investigate a recurring symbol, Ron wholeheartedly agreed.
Harry privately accused Ron of only agreeing to get back on Hermione's good side, a fact that he did not deny stating, "All's fair in love and war, and this is a bit of both." The trio speaking with Xenophilius Lovegood at his home, near the village of Ottery St Catchpole The trio learned of the existence of the Deathly Hallows from Xenophilius Lovegood. Xenophilius, worried for his daughter Luna, who was being held hostage by Death Eaters, tried to capture the trio.
They narrowly escaped, Hermione engineering it in a way that preserved Ron's alibi of being sick at home. While Harry obsessed over the Hallows, Ron and Hermione thought they should focus on finding the Horcruxes, as Dumbledore had instructed them. During Harry's period of listless obsession, Ron's leadership qualities began to show. He suggested that they search many wizarding settlements for clues if only to be in motion and actively searching.
Skirmish at the Malfoy Manor Bellatrix Lestrange: "All except... except for the Mudblood." Ron: "No! You can have me, keep me!" Bellatrix Lestrange: "If she dies under questioning, I'll take you next. Blood traitor is next to Mudblood in my book. Take them downstairs, Greyback, and make sure they are secure, but do nothing more to them — yet." — Ron begging Bellatrix while in Malfoy Manor[src] Ron and Hermione held captive at the Malfoy Manor During the Easter holidays of 1998, the trio was captured by a gang of Snatchers led by Fenrir Greyback after Harry broke the Taboo curse on Voldemort's name.
Hermione hit Harry with a Stinging Hex in order to shield him. Harry, Hermione, and Ron quickly lied and gave fake names; Harry being Vernon Dudley, Hermione being Penelope Clearwater, and Ron being Stan Shunpike. Ron was beaten (his mouth extremely bloody) and was then forced to use another name, Barny Weasley. They were then brought to Malfoy Manor, where Ron tried to persuade Bellatrix Lestrange to take him for questioning instead of Hermione.
Ron was forced into the dungeon with Harry, Dean Thomas, and Griphook. In the dungeon they found Luna and Mr Ollivander, whom were captured in 1996. Dobby dropping the chandelier allowing the prisoners time to escape Hermione was kept upstairs and tortured by Bellatrix, her screams reducing Ron to tears. The group was saved by Dobby, who was sent by Aberforth Dumbledore. He freed Harry and Ron to run upstairs to save Hermione, who managed to lie under torture about where they had obtained Gryffindor's Sword.
Ron disarmed Bellatrix after she avoided a chandelier dropped by Dobby, and pulled Hermione from the wreckage of the fallen chandelier, Disapparating them both to Bill and Fleur's home Shell Cottage. They stayed there with Luna, Fleur, Bill, Mr Ollivander, and Griphook. He attended the burial of Dobby, where he humbly gave him his shoes and socks. Gringotts break-in Travers: "Who is your friend? I do not recognise him.
" Hermione Granger: "This is Dragomir Despard. He speaks very little English, but he is in sympathy with the Dark Lord's aims. He has travelled here from Transylvania to see our new regime." — A disguised Hermione introducing a disguised Ron to Travers[src] The trio speaking with Griphook about what lies within the Lestrange vault at Gringotts At the cottage Hermione recovered and she, Ron, and Harry planned to break into Gringotts Wizarding Bank in order to take Hufflepuff's cup, and a Horcrux, within the Lestrange Vault.
Griphook the goblin agreed to help them in exchange for Gryffindor's Sword. Ron, knowing that the sword was needed to destroy horcruxes was reluctant to let Harry part with it. Harry suggested that they delay handing the sword over until the Horcruxes were destroyed. As the planning went forward, Ron along with Harry and Hermione found Griphook to be increasingly distasteful. Ron and Hermione (disguised as Dragomir Despard and Bellatrix Lestrange) break into Gringotts Bank On the morning of 1 May, 1998, they broke into Gringotts with Hermione disguised as Bellatrix Lestrange, Ron as a fictional foreign wizard named "Dragomir Despard," and Harry under his Invisibility Cloak with Griphook.
As they were headed down into the vaults, the Gringotts defences (the Thief's Downfall in particular) were set against them, and Ron's disguise melted away. Once in the vault, it was discovered that all the treasure had Geminio and Flagrante curses put on them. Although they were betrayed by Griphook, the trio obtained Helga Hufflepuff's cup and escaped the wizarding bank on the back of a dragon. Battle of Hogwarts "They can help.
We don't know where it is. We've got to find it fast. We don't have to tell them it's a Horcrux." —Ron persuades Harry to let Dumbledore's Army help[src] The trio Apparate into Hogsmeade before the start of the final battle After getting off the dragon escaping from the wizarding bank, Ron saw Harry having one of his visions. He was told that Lord Voldemort finally knew that they were hunting Horcruxes and that the final one was at Hogwarts.
Harry, Ron, and Hermione apparated under the Invisibility cloak to Hogsmeade looking for a way into Hogwarts. They were soon cornered by Death Eaters set to watch the town. Ron drew his wand ready to fight them, but Harry suggested that advantage lay in stealth and that attacking would give away their position. Once the Death Eaters ordered dementors to search the town for the trio, Harry was forced to perform the Patronus Charm.
After Harry's patronus chaced away the dementors the trio found refuge in the Hog's Head. A heated discussion with the proprietor followed, who turned out to be Aberforth Dumbledore. The discussion revolved around Harry's mission and the seeming defeat of the Order of the Phoenix. After this they were lead into Hogwarts by a badly beaten Neville Longbottom, whom in Harry's absence became the defcto leader of the D.
A. They arrived in the Room of Requirement and found that the reformed Dumbledore's Army was hiding out there. Harry whom had developed trust issues, did not like the idea of allowing the other DA members to help. Ron persuaded Harry to let the others do so anyway. Hermione and Ron destroying the cup in the Chamber While Harry searched for Ravenclaw's diadem, Ron and Hermione entered the Chamber of Secrets to retrieve basilisk fangs.
Ron mimicked the Parseltongue he had heard Harry use to open Salazar Slytherin's locket and succeeded in gaining entrance to the Chamber. Hermione used the fangs to destroy the Horcrux of Hufflepuff's cup, and they then reunited with Harry. When Ron expressed desire to evacuate the house-elves from the Kitchens, Hermione, who had always been concerned for creatures so often mistreated by society, was so touched that she ran and nuzzled and kissed him, much to Ron's delight.
However, their kiss was interrupted by Harry, who pointed out that there was a war going on and that they could carry on later, to which Ron pointed out there might not be latter. Hermione and Ron run from the towering flames Harry, Ron, and Hermione entered the Room of Requirement to find Ravenclaw's diadem, but were ambushed by Malfoy, Crabbe, and Goyle. When Crabbe unleashed a cursed fire, the trio escaped by means of broomsticks; Harry saved Draco, and Ron and Hermione saved Goyle.
They then witnessed the death of Ron's brother Fred in combat, which devastated Ron, who wanted revenge. Hermione managed to calm him by reminding him that they would have to fight on their way to finding Nagini, Voldemort's final Horcrux. The trio made their way to the Shrieking Shack, and witnessed the snake kill Severus Snape on Voldemort's orders. While dying, Severus Snape's memories leaked out of him, which Harry collected into a glass phial to latter view in the headmaster's office.
Ron witnessing Harry's final defeat of Lord Voldemort During the pause in the Battle of Hogwarts, Ron went to the Great Hall, where Bill comforted him over Fred's death and Hermione comforted Ginny. Harry went up to Dumbledore's office and emptied Snape's memories into the Pensieve. He entered the Pensieve and finally learned the truth of it all. After emerging from the Pensieve, he made use of the distraction to slip out and confront Voldemort.
Following his alleged death, the battle resumed, and Ron and Neville Longbottom brought Fenrir Greyback down together. Ron witnessed Harry defeat Lord Voldemort once and for all, and survived the battle without serious injury. Later life (1998-2020) Albus Potter: "Why are they all staring?" Ron: "Don't let it worry you. It's me. I'm extremely famous." — Explanation of why everyone on the platform was staring at them[src] A 37 year old Ron with his family Ron never received a seventh year of education at Hogwarts.
Sometime between 1998 and 2006, Ron married Hermione, and later the couple had two children: Rose and Hugo. Ron was also the godfather and uncle of Harry and Ginny's oldest son. At some point, Ron, Harry, and Hermione were all featured on Chocolate Frog Cards for their accomplishments, which Ron considered his "finest hour". Ron himself noted that he and Hermione were quite young when they were married and that he became rather drunk afterward, having very little memory of the night after the ceremony.
 Career as an Auror "Harry and Ron utterly revolutionised the Auror Department in — at the Ministry of Magic. So they — I mean, they are now the consummate — they are experts... " —J. K. Rowling regarding Ron's career after the war[src] Instead of completing his education, he moved on to become an Auror (along with Harry) at the Ministry of Magic. Their work in the Ministry revolutionised the Auror department, and along with Hermione the trio helped "make a new world" for the wizarding community.
 Two years after he started at the Auror Office, he left to help his brother George at Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes in Diagon Alley. His decision to do so was questioned by Rita Skeeter, who thought that Ron was tired of standing in Harry's shadow, and wrote in her gossip column that Ron was likely mentally ill (this must, of course, be taken with more than a small pinch of salt due to Rita's habit of writing scathing lies in articles), having said himself that the Horcrux hunt had "took its toll" on him.
 Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes employee Ron, Hermione and their children Rose and Hugo all attended the final of the 427th Quidditch World Cup in the Patagonian Desert in July 2014, alongside Harry, Ginny, James, Albus, Teddy Lupin, Neville, Hannah, Luna, Rolf, Bill, Fleur, Victoire, and potentially others.Ron also became close with Harry's children, one of whom, James, was his godson. Lily Luna Potter and Ron's son were close in age and good friends, as were Ron's daughter and Albus Severus Potter.
Ron seeing his daughter off to platform 9¾ in 2017 In August of 2017, Ron, having settled into a rotund middle age, obtained a Muggle driving licence. He also admitted putting a Confundus Charm on the Muggle driving inspector because he had forgotten to use his wing mirror properly, excusing this mistake because casting a Supersensory Charm would be more effective. That year, he and Hermione sent their daughter off for her first year at Hogwarts, and Ron encouraged Rose to be Sorted into Gryffindor House and to beat Scorpius Malfoy in marks.
He hugged Hugo gently. As the train faded away, Ron remembered his time at Hogwarts and how he would love to be going back. At a gathering with Hermione, Harry and Ginny, they talked about the meeting and Ron attempted to cheer everyone up by making jokes which led them them telling him to stop. Before the start of the new school year, Ron and Hermione told Rose to try and befriend Albus again since they have drifted apart since starting Hogwarts.
A while later, Ron attended a meeting at the Ministry of Magic. Hermione was worried about how Harry was having nightmares and his scar was hurting again. Ron got into an argument with Draco Malfoy. Hermione and Ron standing in her office at the Ministry of Magic When Albus and Scorpius meddled with time, they changed Ron's life. In one alternate reality, Ron helped Harry and Ginny find Albus.
Ron never married Hermione and instead married Padma Patil. In another alternate reality where Voldemort won, Ron was in hiding with Hermione as a member of what remained of Dumbledore's Army. They were visited by Severus Snape and Scorpius who told them about the original timeline where they won. Ron agreed to help correct time by time-travelling to the moments where Albus and Scorpius changed time and use a Shield Charm to stop them.
However, when they stopped them the first time, they returned to a present that hadn't changed much. They were attacked by Dementors and Ron and Hermione sacrifice their souls after professing their love for each other to give Scorpius time to escape. When the original timeline was restored, Ron was asked to attend a meeting with Professor McGonagall to talk about what happened. He turned up late having somehow ended up in the kitchens instead.
Ron, Hermione, Harry, Ginny and Draco were very forgiving of Albus and Scorpius so McGonagall reminded them of the great dangers of what they had done. When Albus and Scorpius were kidnapped by Delphi and made to time-travel to 31 October, 1981, Ron went with Hermione, Harry, Ginny and Draco to the past to save them and stop Delphi. Ron helped Harry duel Delphi and they apprehended her. Ron then returned to the present where Delphi was sent to Azkaban.
Physical appearance Ron at age 17 Ron inherited the typical Weasley family traits: fiery red hair and a freckled complexion. When he became embarrassed, his ears notably turned red. He had blue eyes, a long nose, and was described as being very tall and lanky, with big hands and feet. In this way, his stature was similar to those of his older brothers Bill and Percy, rather than the heavily built Charlie, and Fred and George.
 His sister Ginny once joked to the trio that Ron had a Pygmy Puff tattoo, though it is doubtful that the remark had any truth in it. By 2014, when he was at the age of 34, Rita Skeeter remarked on a Daily Prophet gossip column that his "famous ginger hair appears to be thinning slightly". By 2017, Ron had settled into a rotund middle age and was later described to be getting "a bit of a gut" by his nephew, yet hiding it extremely well.
 Personality and traits "He says very funny things sometimes, doesn't he?... But he can be a bit unkind." —Description of Ron's personality [src] Ron was a very funny person, but often emotionally immature, and insensitive. He had a sardonic, wisecracking sense of humour that often brought his friends laughter and relaxation. However, as Hermione Granger and Luna Lovegood pointed out, his humour could occasionally be hurtful, even if unintentionally.
 Hermione was frequently frustrated with Ron's immaturity, once commenting that he had the "emotional range of a teaspoon". During his time searching for Voldemort's Horcruxes with Harry and Hermione, Ron matured greatly, and even took to leading the trio when Harry temporarily fell into a depressive mood. Ron's character was also marked by moodiness and insecurity. He could be argumentative, a trait particularly displayed in his bickering with Hermione.
He also had a fierce temper, which was especially prone to provocation if his loved ones were insulted, and was not above undermining the ways of wizarding kind during confrontations (e.g. he had, on more than one occasion, opted to manually resort to the use of his fists rather than his wand when provoked). Ron frequently demonstrated great bravery in attempting to protect those he loved, from facing his arachnophobia to stand by Harry in his second year to trying to take Hermione's place when Bellatrix Lestrange isolated her for interrogation with the Cruciatus Curse.
 Ron: "What are you doing? Are you staying, or what?" Hermione Granger: "I... Yes — yes, I'm staying. Ron, we said we'd go with Harry, we said we'd help —" Ron: "I get it. You choose him." Hermione Granger: "Ron, no — please — come back, come back!" — Ron abandoning Harry and Hermione after an intense row[src] Ron playing Quidditch as Keeper As a boy, Ron was very sensitive about his family's poverty, and sometimes embarrassed by them.
Many, if not all, of Ron's possessions were hand-me-downs, including his robes, school books, wand, and even a pet rat whom he called Scabbers. His family's lack of finances often made Ron a target for taunting by Draco Malfoy, a spoiled, arrogant Slytherin. Ron was also prone to insecurity about his abilities, when compared to his older siblings and to his famous best friend. When he felt insecure or embarrassed, it was noted that his ears turned red.
This became his tell-tale sign of his anger and embarrassment. He felt as if he was consistently overshadowed by the legacy of his older brothers and the fame of Harry; this lead to a feeling of being "second-best". Although passionate about Quidditch, especially the Chudley Cannons, and a fine flyer, Ron had a problem with nerves, and sometimes his playing ability suffered for it.Salazar Slytherin's Locket revealed that Ron's deepest fears were that his mother loved him least and that Hermione preferred Harry to him.
 He also suffered from arachnophobia, a fear originating from his brother Fred transfiguring his teddy bear into a spider when Ron was a child. Ron's point of view on many topics was often that of the stereotypical wizard, which clashed many times with those of Harry and Hermione because they were both raised by Muggles; but in exchange, he was typically more aware of standard factors abided by wizardkind.
Examples of this are that while he liked Lupin the entire third year, the moment he discovered that Lupin was a werewolf he exclaimed "Get away from me, werewolf!"; that he was more shocked and disgusted than Harry and Hermione at discovering that Hagrid was half giant; and when he got into an argument with Griphook over wizards not giving goblins wands. However, he was clearly very much appreciative of Dobby's sacrifice for them, as he helped Harry dig the grave, found it difficult to say stuff at the grave (it is mentioned it "came out thickly", implying he was choked up), and he had sat on a rock and stripped off his shoes and socks, giving them to Dobby to be buried in.
Ron showing his fondness for food as he enthusiastically eats chicken legs Ron was particularly fond of food. He had a tendency to talk with his mouth full, often to Hermione's disgust, and a great fondness for bacon sandwiches, though he disliked corned beef sandwiches, as mentioned in his first year; his love of food eventually made him settle into a portly middle age. And like Harry, Ron was intelligent, but lacked the motivation to put forth effort in class due to incredible laziness; during their years at school, Ron frequently expected Hermione's help, and when she either refused or was unavailable, he was often dumbfounded about how to proceed.
If not for Hermione's help, he would have undoubtedly failed his exams. Ron was also shown to have a habit of swearing. In 1993, he called Professor Snape something that caused Hermione to exclaim: "Ron!". Also, after Draco Malfoy insulted him, Ron told him to do something he would never have dared say in front of Mrs Weasley. He also called Draco Malfoy a "two face-bastard" during the Battle of Hogwarts after saving him from a Death Eater, and rescuing him for a second time, from death.
Ron was brave, to a level which would put him on a par with his best friend Harry; he never hesitated to put himself into extremely dangerous situations with his best friends Harry and Hermione, and as shown many times, he would rather die than have someone else he cared about be harmed. He risked his life on many occasions, and his bravery was not unnoticed by his friends. Ron was also a person who liked to do things the easy way, as he did not like to work hard.
This quality was reflected in his first year when he just picked up books from the Hogwarts Library shelves randomly when finding out about Nicolas Flamel. He also had a tendency to make up predictions for his Divination homework, and frequently copied most of his homework from Hermione Granger. However, he could afford to let go of this tendency of his during tougher times, like when he researched information to help Hagrid in letting off Buckbeak in his third year.
His peculiar trait did not seem to vanish, even after he grew up, as he confunded his driving examiner (breaking the International Statute of Secrecy which is considered illegal) and shrugged off his guilt by saying "I could always use a Supersensory Charm for that". Ron was very protective of those he cared about, and this was shown perhaps, best of all, when Ginny was involved in a relationship with Dean Thomas.
He was, of course, looking out for her, but his temper got the best of him and he lashed out at her, as she did the same to him. Magical abilities and skills Ron's corporeal Patronus (form of a Jack Russell Terrier) "First — to Mr Ronald Weasley for the best played game of chess Hogwarts has seen in many years, I award Gryffindor house fifty points." —Ron's talent at Wizard's Chess[src] Ron was often insecure about his own abilities when compared to his elder brothers and famous best friend.
However, once that lessened a bit he proved to be a powerful wizard in his own right. Ron was able to conjure a corporeal Jack Russell Terrier Patronus (a mark of superior magical ability). Wizard's Chess: Ron was extremely talented at chess. It was he who taught Harry how to play. Ron and Harry often played Wizard's Chess together when they had free time. In his first year, his logistic ability helped him, Hermione, and Harry play past Professor McGonagall's magically Transfigured giant chessboard to get to the Philosopher's Stone and prevent it being stolen by Voldemort.
As a result, he got fifty points for his house for "the best played game of chess that Hogwarts has seen these many years", as Dumbledore himself noted. His representation as a knight has been theorised to represent his status as a knight; his 'chivalrous' nature and his bravery. Duelling: He was more than capable in battle; it is notable that he survived both the Battle of the Department of Mysteries and the Battle of the Astronomy Tower before this.
He fought well in the Battle of the Seven Potters, stunning a Death Eater while flying. He also disarmed Bellatrix Lestrange, and saved Hermione during the Skirmish at Malfoy Manor, and took down Fenrir Greyback with Neville Longbottom and fought several other Death Eaters during the Battle of Hogwarts. He also escaped a group of Snatchers, unharmed after he temporarily left the Horcrux hunt. It should also be noted that Ron had a physical approach to fighting as well as magical, as more than one occasion, he resorted to fighting physically rather than magically especially in his earlier years, and he took this trait to his later years when he punched Draco Malfoy after saving his life a second time during the Battle of Hogwarts.
Defence Against the Dark Arts: Ron became adept at Defence Against the Dark Arts after having been trained in Dumbledore's Army. In 1996 he achieved an 'Exceeds Expectations' grade on his O.W.L. exam. His mastery of the Stunning Spell and the Disarming Charm (spells taught during Defence Against the Dark Arts) as well as his career as an Auror both attest to his ability to competently defend himself against Dark Magic.
Charms: Ron was rather good at this subject, being able to cast a successful Slug-Vomiting Charm in only his second year and receiving an 'Exceeds Expectations' on his O.W.L. exam. He was also known to be able to adequately cast the Confundus, the Super-Sensory, and even the Patronus Charm by his fifth year, the last of which is noted to be advanced magic not usually taught on the Hogwarts Curriculum.
He could also cast simpler charms such as the; Levitation Charm, Wand-Lighting Charm, Unlocking Charm, and various others. Potions: Ron was able to achieve an 'Exceeds Expectations' grade on his O.W.L. exam. He was one of only twelve students able to go on to N.E.W.T.-level in 1996, showing proficiency in the subject. Apparition: Despite not achieving a licence in his sixth year, Ron was still able to apparate during the hunt for the horcruxes, though he did splinch himself on occasion.
Transfiguration: Ron advanced to N.E.W.T.-level and achieved an 'Exceeds Expectations' on his O.W.L. exam, showing aptitude in the subject. He was also able to cast Transforming Spells, including the Avifors Spell and Lapifors Spell. Herbology: Ron achieved an 'Exceeds Expectations' on his O.W.L. exam. He attended N.E.W.T.-level Herbology in his sixth year. He could also cast plant related charms such as the Fire-Making Spell and the Herbivicus Charm.
Divination: Like Harry, Ron disliked Professor Sybill Trelawney's Divination class, but he did make at least two accurate predictions. In his first attempt at reading tea leaves, he predicted that Harry would receive "a windfall, unexpected gold". Harry received unexpected gold the following year (by winning the Triwizard Tournament after Barty Crouch Jr secretly submitted his name). He later inherited gold from his godfather, Sirius Black, after the death of Sirius.
Ron also saw "a blob a bit like a bowler hat" among the tea leaves. Cornelius Fudge had a bowler hat when he met with Dumbledore and Harry after Voldemort's re-birth, and refused to believe Harry's story about the incident. Non-verbal magic: Ron was able to stun a man who attempted to attack Hermione in 1998 without saying the incantation. He is also noted to have been able to achieve this at a young age as demonstrated in his second year when he attempted to "curse" Draco when he insulted Hermione.
The charm worked without him saying the incantation, even though it backfired. Astronomy: Ron earned on O.W.L. in this subject. It's unknown if he was able to continue on to the N.E.W.T. class, seeing as he didn't apply for advancement. Quidditch: Ron was a reasonably good Keeper. However, his performance was inconsistent because of his lack of confidence. Care of Magical Creatures: Ron got an 'Exceeds Expectations' on his O.
W.L. He showed talent in handling dangerous creatures like his brother Charlie Weasley. Flying: Like his brothers Ron was excellent at flying. He was good enough to be on the Gryffindor Quidditch team and he flew during the Battle of the Seven Potters. Tactical thinking: Ron was good with tactical thinking and showed a talent for thinking outside of the box. For example, it was Ron who suggested that Harry use Felix Felicis to try to get Horace Slughorn's memory of telling Tom Riddle about the Horcruxes, and Ron's idea to go to the Chamber of Secrets in order to get Basilisk fangs to destroy the Horcruxes.
 Ron was also able to keep a level head in highly stressful situations, and was generally more pragmatic than either of his best friends. His knack for strategy allowed him to consistently outclass his peers in both combat and strategy games such as Wizards Chess. Impersonation: Ron was clever at imitating voices. While at Malfoy Manor, he was able to convincingly imitate Peter Pettigrew to avoid arousing the suspicions of Bellatrix and the Malfoys.
He was also able to mimic Parseltongue effectively, which is a rather difficult language to learn or even imitate, enough to open the Chamber of Secrets after previously hearing Harry do it. Leadership skills: While it was mostly Harry or Hermione who did the leading, Ron also had relatively good leadership skills as he ordered Harry and Hermione to continue their search for the Philosophers Stone when he decided to become a sacrifice during the Wizard's Chess obstacle, formed and co-lead Dumbledores Army alongside Harry and Hermione, and temporarily lead their Horcrux hunt when Harry briefly fell into depression over his obsession for the Deathly Hallows.
After the war ended, his leadership skills were again shown when he, Harry and Hermione helped to reform the Auror department and Ministry of Magic, and help reduce the prejudice towards non-pure bloods and other underprivileged magical creatures, and when he co owned Weasley Wizard Wheezes afterwards alongside George Weasley. Possessions "You never get anything new, either, with five brothers. I've got Bill's old robes, Charlie's old wand and Percy's old rat.
" —Ron talking about being the youngest son in the family to Harry[src] Ron's second wand Wand: Ron initially used his brother Charlie's old, chipped wand, made of ash with a unicorn hair sticking out of the end. He held the wand together with Spellotape after nearly breaking it in half at the start of his second year, but it malfunctioned dreadfully after this, backfiring spells, making strange noises, and emitting objects out from the wrong end.
It eventually exploded. Before his third year, he received a new wand, fourteen inches, willow and unicorn hair. This wand seemed to suit him better, but he lost it at Malfoy Manor in 1998 and it is questionable whether he ever retrieved it. Spellotape: He uses the Spellotape to hold together his first wand after nearly breaking it in half at the start of his second year, but it malfunctions dreadfully after this, backfiring spells, making strange noises and emitting objects from the wrong end.
(He borrowed this from Seamus Finnigan.) Ron's first owl Pigwidgeon Pigwidgeon: Ron's first pet owl he was gifted to him from Sirius Black in 1994. Pigwidgeon was described by Harry as resembling a "fluffy snitch". Though Ron acted very rude to Pigwidgeon in public, he was actually very attached to Pig, since this was his first owl. Dress robes: Ron wore a set of dress robes to the Yule Ball in 1994.
They were very traditional in style, and thus old-fashioned and frilly, much to Ron's distaste. Ron also owns a second set of dress robes, a present from the twins in the summer break of 1995. These robes were bought with some of Harry's Triwizard winnings, as a stipulation of him giving the money to Fred and George. These robes were only mentioned, never described. Deluminator: Ron inherited the deluminator from Dumbledore.
Watch: He received a golden wristwatch on his 17th birthday from his parents. Cleansweep Eleven: In the summer of 1995, Ronald Weasley was given a Cleansweep Eleven as a present from his parents for becoming a Prefect, and used it when he played as Keeper for the Gryffindor Quidditch team. Shooting Star: Ron had a Shooting Star when he was young. Ron's Christmas present from Lavender Sweetheart necklace: Ron received the necklace from Lavender Brown as a Christmas present in 1996, though it is unlikely that he kept it following their break up.
Chocolate Frog Cards: Ron had about five hundred chocolate frog cards. Wizard's Chess Set: Ron had a battered old Wizard's Chess set in 1991. Like most other things he had, it was secondhand, being passed down to him by his grandfather. However, his chessmen were therefore more likely to trust his judgement in battle. Relationships Family Weasley family "Ah! Another Weasley... I know just what to do with you.
.. GRYFFINDOR!" —The Sorting Hat putting Ron into Gryffindor, like the rest of his family[src] The Weasley family Ron was quite close with his family. Although he was sometimes embarrassed by their lack of money, Ron was fiercely protective of his siblings, and always stoutly defended his parents. He was outraged when his brother Percy called their father a failure and greatly upset their mother with his estrangement, as Ron was close to both of his parents.
 Ron looked up to his older brothers Bill and Charlie, though their accomplishments also made him feel insecure about what he had to live up to. Percy tried to be a role model for Ron, but Ron considered him rather pompous and annoying, and took after Fred and George more in terms of personality. Notably, Ron was the only family member Percy contacted after his estrangement from his family, and the one who comforted him over Fred's death during the Battle of Hogwarts.
 The twins delighted in teasing Ron, as did his younger sister Ginny, though they were all close. Ron was very protective of Ginny, particularly in disapproving of her love life, which sometimes led to them fighting. Other relatives of Ron were Fabian and Gideon Prewett, who were his uncles and members of the Order of the Phoenix. During the First Wizarding War, the brothers were attacked by five Death Eaters, including Antonin Dolohov.
Both were killed in battle and were described as having "fought like heroes." After the Second Wizarding War, Ron's family was extended when four of his siblings were married and had children. He also had two children with Hermione Granger, Rose, and Hugo Weasley. Harry Potter "If you want to kill Harry, you'll have to kill us too!" —Ron's loyalty to Harry[src] Harry Potter, his best friend and future brother-in-law Harry Potter had been Ron's best friend since 1991.
The two were as close as brothers, as the Weasleys became like a surrogate family to Harry soon after the pair met on the Hogwarts Express at the start of their first year. They took to each other immediately, bonding over the vast array of wizarding sweets Harry happily shared with Ron, who was not able to afford his own from the Hogwarts Express food trolley. When Draco Malfoy spoke disparagingly of Ron's family, Harry rejected Draco's offer of friendship in favour of Ron's.
Both Ron and Harry were Sorted into Gryffindor and therefore shared a dormitory. Ron defended Harry from fellow classmates and even Professor Snape. Like all real brothers, Harry and Ron occasionally fought, especially when Ron's insecurities got the best of him. When Harry was chosen by the Goblet of Fire as Champion for the Triwizard Tournament, Ron believed Harry had indeed cheated to get into the contest.
The two briefly fell out, but the friendship was repaired after the Tournament's First Task, when Ron realised that Harry could possibly lose his life to an event he had genuinely not wanted to enter. Harry and Ron reunite before the Battle of the Seven Potters The two had another falling out in 1997, when the negative energy in Salazar Slytherin's Locket affected Ron to the point of making him resentful of Harry and unreasonably jealous of Harry's relationship with Hermione Granger, their other best friend and Ron's love interest.
Ron temporarily abandoned his friends, though he instantly regretted it, and returned to save Harry's life. By and large, Ron was always fiercely loyal to Harry and risked life and limb on countless occasions for him. Even in 2022, Ron tired to prevent Harry from being transfigured into Voldemort due he didn't want Harry to be affected by his trauma. The two eventually became brothers-in-law when Harry married Ron's sister.
Ron was the uncle of Harry's three children, and was godfather to Harry and Ginny's son James. Since the two became Aurors, it is likely that they worked together later in life. Hermione Granger "Oh, maybe she and Ron will be alright with a bit of counselling, you know. I wonder what happens at wizard marriage counselling? They'll probably be fine. He needs to work on his self-esteem issues and she needs to work on being a little less critical.
" —J. K. Rowling on Hermione and Ron's adult relationship[src] Hermione Granger, his future wife and mother of his children Ron's relationship with Hermione was rocky, but by and large, the two were good friends for most of their adolescence, with building romantic tension that culminated in a kiss during the Battle of Hogwarts. From the time Ron first met Hermione on the Hogwarts Express at the start of their first year, he found her annoying for "showing off" and regularly reciting the school's rules.
His first thought was that he didn't want to be in her house and he groaned when she was Sorted into Gryffindor. Later on, he informed others of his annoyance with her, and mentioned that it was unsurprising that she didn't have any friends, which she overheard. Hurt, Hermione hid in the bathroom, crying, until Harry and Ron saved her from a troll that had been let into Hogwarts by Professor Quirrell.
Following the troll incident, Hermione lied to Professor McGonagall to prevent Harry and Ron from getting into trouble. From that time onwards, the trio were best friends, in spite of Ron and Hermione's tendency to bicker. Ron first began showing signs of romantic interest in Hermione in their second year; he was irritated by her crush on Defence Against the Dark Arts professor Gilderoy Lockhart, became so angry that Draco Malfoy called her a "Mudblood" that he tried to hex him, and was even more upset than Harry when she became one of the victims of the basilisk.
 In their third year, Ron and Hermione had their first real fight, when Ron accused Hermione's cat Crookshanks of eating his pet rat Scabbers, which had gone missing. The two stopped speaking to each other for a time, but made up after Hagrid scolded Ron and Harry for their treatment of Hermione; Ron offered to help her with Buckbeak's trial, and Hermione hugged him. Also in their third year during their Defence Against the Dark Arts class when Professor Lupin was "ill" and Professor Snape was teaching instead, Ron was the only person that had enough courage to go as far as standing up to Snape when he called Hermione an "insufferable know-it-all".
 In their fourth year, Ron and Hermione's romantic feelings for one another began to grow and become more obvious. Hermione was jealous of Ron's crush on Fleur Delacour, the part-Veela champion from Beauxbatons, and Ron became jealous of Viktor Krum, with whom Hermione attended the Yule Ball after Ron failed to ask her in time and then offended her with his clumsy attempt to do so. Though they rowed heatedly over Hermione seeing Krum, their friendship only suffered slight strain.
 Hermione's frustration over Ron's failure to realise and act on his feelings continued into their fifth year, as she commented that he had "the emotional range of a teaspoon". Ron was visibly affected when Hermione kissed him on the cheek before his first Quidditch game and irked that Hermione maintained a correspondence with Viktor Krum. Ron and Hermione kiss in the Chamber of Secrets Their sixth year would be a trying time for Ron and Hermione.
When Hermione and Harry were invited to the Slug Club, while Professor Slughorn ignored Ron, Ron became resentful and jealous. He brightened up considerably after Hermione asked him to go to Slughorn's Christmas party with her. However, Ron had a row with his sister after catching her snogging Dean Thomas, during which she revealed that Hermione had snogged Viktor Krum sometime during their fourth year.
Ron started acting coldly towards Hermione, much to her bewilderment. In an attempt to boost Ron's confidence for an upcoming Quidditch match, Harry pretended to slip him some Felix Felicis in Ron's morning pumpkin juice, giving Ron the desired placebo effect that kept his nerves from hindering his performance as a Keeper. Harry had managed to trick Hermione into thinking he had given Ron a drop of the Felix Felicis as well, and she berated both Harry and Ron for taking an unfair advantage in the game.
Though Ron had initially believed the Felix was behind his flawless performance, when Harry revealed he had not actually slipped anything in Ron's drink, Ron accused Hermione of not having faith in his abilities and thenceforth started ignoring her completely. Ron teaching Hermione how to skip rocks All this caused Ron to begin a shallow relationship with Lavender Brown. Hermione was hurt and furious, conjuring a flock of canaries to attack Ron, after which the two did not speak for months.
Hermione even retaliated by attending the aforementioned Christmas party with Cormac McLaggen, an older Gryffindor whom Ron despised, simply to annoy Ron. By this time, Ron was already growing tired of his relationship with the very clingy Lavender. When Ron was accidentally poisoned with mead on his birthday, Hermione forgot her anger in her worry for him, staying by his side until he recovered. Ron looked forward to these visits from her while pretending to be asleep whenever Lavender visited him.
During one of Lavender's visits, Ron repeated Hermione's name in his sleep, causing her to become very silent. By the time Ron was allowed to leave the Hospital Wing, he and Hermione were closer than ever, and the former's romance with Lavender ended quickly when Lavender saw Ron and Hermione coming down from the boys' dormitories together, while Harry was with them under his Invisibility Cloak. At the end of the year, their mutual affection was visible when Ron gently comforted Hermione as she cried on his shoulder at Dumbledore's funeral.
 Afterwards, the two grew much closer, though were only "sort of" together, according to Harry. They danced together at Bill and Fleur's wedding, where Ron also showed his continuing jealous dislike of Viktor Krum, who was a guest. During the hunt for the Horcruxes with Harry, Ron comforted Hermione several times by putting his arm around her, and the two were generally kinder to one another; Harry even suspected that they had fallen asleep in 12 Grimmauld Place holding hands after waking up and noticing that their hands were barely an inch away from each other.
Ron and Hermione fell asleep hand-in-hand in 12 Grimmauld Place When Remus Lupin informed them of the Ministry's crack down on Muggle-borns, Ron offered to vouch for her by telling people that Hermione was his cousin, at which Hermione affectionately touched his hand and reminded him that they were on the run with the most wanted wizard in Britain. When Ron temporarily left his friends, Hermione cried over him for weeks; Ron was able to return by hearing Hermione's voice saying his name through his Deluminator.
When Ron destroyed the locket Horcrux, it taunted him with visions of his greatest fears, one of which was Hermione preferring Harry to him. Hermione was initially furious with Ron for his abandonment, to the point of physically attacking him, though she eventually forgave him. Later on, when the trio was brought to Malfoy Manor, Bellatrix Lestrange isolated Hermione for interrogation by the means of torture.
Ron begged in vain to be taken in her stead, and after being thrown into the basement, Hermione's screams from above caused Ron to call her name in anguish, eventually reducing him to tears. During the Battle of Hogwarts, Hermione was touched when Ron expressed concern for the castle's house-elves, for whom she had always been concerned, and initiated a kiss, to which Ron responded very enthusiastically.
 Sometime after the end of the Second Wizarding War, Ron and Hermione married and had two children, Rose and Hugo.They were rather young when they married, as noted by Ron in 2022. His nephew, Albus, noted that Ron was rather openly affectionate towards his wife and was known to kiss her in public rather frequently. At this time Ron proposed to Hermione again after reading about renewing wedding vows, showing that Ron had become rather romantic as he matured, which made Hermione melt, deeply touched by her husband's romantic gesture and agreeing on the spot to it.
This shows hows Ron and Hermione's relationship had evolved and much of their bickering subsiding at bit for a more gentle marriage, yet still rife with their uniquely combative and verbally alarming undertones to it. Children "Don't get too friendly with him, though, Rosie. Granddad Weasley would never forgive you if you married a pure-blood" —Ron joking with his daughter Rose about Scorpius Malfoy[src] Hugo Weasley, his second child and son After the Second Wizarding War, Ron and Hermione had two children, Rose and Hugo.
As Rose was preparing to leave for her first year at Hogwarts in 2017, Ron jokingly told her that if she wasn't in Gryffindor he'd disinherit her. He also told her to beat Draco Malfoy's son Scorpius Malfoy on their tests, and that he was grateful she had inherited her mother's brains. Ron's daughter Rose was close in age to Harry and Ginny's younger son Albus Severus, while Ron's son Hugo was close in age to Harry and Ginny's daughter, Lily Luna and they all appeared quite close.
Nieces and nephews After the Second Wizarding War, Ron had many nieces and nephews through his siblings. Bill and Fleur had three children: Victoire, Dominique, and Louis. Percy and his wife, Audrey, had two daughters, Molly (after Ron's mother) and Lucy. George and Angelina had two children, a son named Fred (after Ron's older brother) and a daughter named Roxanne. Ginny also married Harry and had three children, James (to whom Ron was godfather), Albus, and Lily.
Fleur Delacour Ron: "There she was, just walking by... you know how I like it when they walk... I couldn't help it... it just sort of slipped out!" Ginny Weasley: "Actually, he sort of screamed at her. It was a bit frightening." — Ron's humiliating attempt to ask Fleur to the Yule Ball[src] Fleur Delacour, his sister-in-law Fleur Delacour was a very beautiful, French, part-Veela witch. Ron developed a crush on her when he met her in 1994, during the Triwizard Tournament.
He asked her to go with him to the Yule Ball, but she refused. However, after the the second task in the Tournament, when Harry "saved" Fleur's younger sister, Gabrielle from the Black Lake, Fleur treated both Harry and Ron (whom she believed helped Harry save Gabrielle) much more warmly. Following the death of Cedric Diggory and the end of the Tournament, Fleur kissed Ron and Harry and said goodbye to them before she left.
After the Tournament, Fleur started dating Ron's brother, Bill. Bill sent her to live with his family for a few days, so that she could become more familiar with them. Ron told Harry that it was difficult to get used to her visiting when she kept appearing suddenly, leaving Ron in a sort-of trance. Fleur eventually married Bill, and they lived at their own house, Shell Cottage. While Ron was looking for Horcruxes, he abandoned Harry and Hermione temporarily after they fought and spent that time at Shell Cottage with Bill and Fleur.
Ron went to Shell Cottage again, after the Skirmish at Malfoy Manor, and Fleur cared for him and his friends like a mother. Eventually, Ron and Fleur fought alongside each other and survived the Battle of Hogwarts. Neville Longbottom "No, you're not. You just said that to get rid of Neville." —Ron to Hermione Granger regarding Neville's invite to the Yule Ball[src] Neville Longbottom, a good friend Neville Longbottom became Ron's room mate in their first year at Hogwarts.
Neville was shy and nervous, and regularly found himself being bullied by Slytherin students, like Draco Malfoy. Ron encouraged Neville to be more confident and to stand up for himself, and the two became close friends. Both Ron and Neville became members of Dumbledore's Army in 1995, and fought together in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries in 1996, and the Battle of the Astronomy Tower in 1997.
Ron was shocked when he learned that Neville's parents were patients at St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, having been tortured to the point of insanity by Barty Crouch Jr, Bellatrix, Rodolphus, and Rabastan Lestrange, and sympathised with his friend. While Ron, Harry and Hermione left Hogwarts to find Voldemort's Horcruxes, Neville led Ginny Weasley, Luna Lovegood and several other students in reviving Dumbledore's Army and maintaining a steady opposition against the new Headmaster Severus Snape and professors Amycus and Alecto Carrow.
Neville was adamant that the rest of the DA be included in whatever Ron, Harry and Hermione were doing to bring down Lord Voldemort, and he fought together with them in the Battle of Hogwarts, ultimately beheading Nagini with the Sword of Gryffindor and destroying the last remaining horcrux. Together, Ron and Neville took down Fenrir Greyback. After the Second Wizarding War, Ron and Neville remained close and saw each other regularly, as Neville was appointed Herbology professor at Hogwarts, and taught Ron's daughter in 2017.
Draco Malfoy "Think my name’s funny, do you? No need to ask who you are. My father told me all the Weasleys have red hair, freckles, and more children than they can afford." —Draco Malfoy upon first meeting Ron[src] Draco Malfoy, his school bully Ron and his family were looked down upon by the Malfoy family for their lack of wealth and “blood traitor” status. Upon meeting Ron on the Hogwarts Express at the beginning of their first year, Draco Malfoy immediately expressed his disdain for the Weasleys.
He was further irritated when Harry turned down his offer of friendship in favour of Ron’s. Like their fathers, Arthur Weasley and Lucius Malfoy, Ron and Draco despised each other and frequently exchanged insults. In their second year, Ron tried to hex Draco to vomit slugs after he called Hermione a “filthy little Mudblood”, but the charm backfired due to a broken wand. He also attempted to physically attack him after Draco expressed a wish that Hermione was killed rather than petrified during the Chamber of Secrets affair.
 In their fourth year, Ron was immensely amused when Alastor Moody (Barty Crouch Jr in disguise) transfigured Draco into a ferret. The following year, Draco invented the song Weasley is Our King to demean Ron’s abilities as a Keeper for the Gryffindor Quidditch team. After he, Harry, and Hermione saved Draco and Gregory Goyle from the Room of Requirement, Ron punched Draco in the face and called him a “two-faced bastard” upon seeing him with a Death Eater.
By 2017, Ron and his friends' enmity with Draco had faded, though none of them were near friends. Ron discouraged his daughter Rose from becoming "too friendly" with Draco’s son Scorpius. In 2022, it is shown Ron is slightly annoyed with Draco becoming friendly with Harry, and even cited that despite this he still disliked him. Luna Lovegood "You know, she's grown on me, Luna. I know she's insane, but it's in a good way.
" —Ron regarding Luna during his sixth year[src] Luna Lovegood, a good friend Ron met Luna Lovegood in 1995 on the Hogwarts Express, and found her very odd. She found him very funny, but Ron suspected she was making fun of him when she laughed uproariously at a joke he made. After getting to know her better through Dumbledore's Army, Ron gradually became fonder of Luna, especially after she was one of the only D.
A. members to come to the trio’s assistance when they ventured to the Ministry of Magic and a battle ensued, during which Luna protected a cursed Ron and his injured sister. Ron was very amused when Luna commentated on a Quidditch match the following year, and when she danced by herself at the wedding of his older brother Bill and Fleur Delacour. He thought highly of her bravery, but still teased her on occasion, regardless the two remained close friends in their adulthood.
 Seamus Finnigan and Dean Thomas Seamus Finnigan: "Do you believe the rubbish he's come out with about You-Know-Who?" Ron: "Yeah, I do." — Ron sticking up for Harry against his friend, Seamus[src] Seamus Finnigan, Dean Thomas, and Neville Longbottom: his friends and roommates In addition to Harry and Neville, Ron’s room mates at Hogwarts were Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnigan. Although he was not as close to them as he was to Harry, Ron was nevertheless friendly with both of them.
When he and Harry had a falling out over the Goblet of Fire drawing Harry’s name, Ron spent a lot of time with Seamus and Dean. Ron stood up for Harry against Seamus when he and Harry argued about Lord Voldemort's return. Also, when Dean began dating his younger sister in 1996, Ron became irritated with him, especially after catching the two snogging, though they seemed to have put the matter behind them completely by the time Ron, Harry and Hermione met Dean again in 1998.
Seamus and Dean were also members of Dumbledore's Army. Dean, like Ron, Harry and Hermione, left Hogwarts in 1997, because it was supposed that he was a Muggle-born. He was caught by a group of Snatchers, led by Fenrir Greyback, along with Ron, Harry and Hermione. They escaped from Malfoy Manor, where they had gone, and lived for a few days at Shell Cottage. Seamus and Dean eventually fought along with Ron in the Battle of Hogwarts.
Scabbers/Peter Pettigrew "I let you sleep in my bed!" —Ron disgusted at Peter Pettigrew[src] Peter Pettigrew, his once pet Scabbers was an unusually old and scraggly-looking rat that originally belonged to Percy Weasley, but was passed down to Ron when Percy was given Hermes. At first, Ron showed little outward affection for Scabbers, as the rat was uninteresting and one of Ron's many hand-me-downs.
However, Ron later demonstrated that he genuinely cared for the rat; he was so devastated when Scabbers disappeared during the 1993–1994 school year that he nearly ended his friendship with Hermione Granger, believing her cat, Crookshanks, had eaten Scabbers. Ron was clearly overjoyed when they later discovered Scabbers hiding in Rubeus Hagrid's cabin. When Sirius Black and Remus Lupin revealed that Scabbers was actually an Animagus named Peter Pettigrew, Ron refused to believe it until they forced the rat to transform back into his human form.
Ron took this revelation as a personal insult, and refused to listen to Pettigrew's pleas for mercy. In 1998, Ron, Harry, and Hermione were captured and imprisoned in the cellar of Malfoy Manor. When the house-elf Dobby came to rescue them, Peter was sent to investigate the noise. Harry and Ron ambushed Pettigrew, and Ron took his wand. Harry reminded Pettigrew of the life-debt he owed Harry when Pettigrew tried to strangle him, and Peter momentarily loosened his grip.
However, the silver hand given to Peter by Voldemort turned on him instead, and, despite Harry and Ron's attempts to save him, Pettigrew was killed for showing the slightest bit of mercy. Ron subsequently gained possession of Pettigrew's wand. This could be seen as poetic justice for Pettigrew, who had deceived Ron for so long. Rubeus Hagrid Hermione Granger: "Look, Hagrid is our friend, so why don't we just go and ask him?" Ron: "That will be a cheerful visit.
"Hello Hagrid. Tell us, have you sent anything mad and hairy loose in the castle lately?"" — Ron and Hermione on whether to ask Hagrid about the monster in the Chamber of Secrets[src] Rubeus Hagrid, his teacher and friend Ron first met Rubeus Hagrid, the gamekeeper for Hogwarts, during his first year at the school in 1991. Hagrid was very fond of Harry, Ron and Hermione, regularly inviting them to his hut for tea.
Though all three returned Hagrid's affections, Ron was openly incredulous of Hagrid's love of dangerous Creatures, and was furious with Hagrid after his pet Acromantula, Aragog, and Aragog's family tried to eat him and Harry. During Ron's fourth year, it was revealed to the wizarding world that Hagrid was a half-giant, and Hagrid consequently received a good deal of hate mail, which led to his self-imposed seclusion within his hut.
Through the efforts of Ron, Harry, Hermione and Albus Dumbledore, Hagrid became convinced that people still loved him and wanted him around. Ron and Hagrid also fought alongside one another in the Battle of the Seven Potters and in the Battle of Hogwarts. After the Second Wizarding War, Ron and Hagrid probably remained friends. Remus Lupin Hermione Granger: "Harry! How could you?" Ron: "You shouldn't have said that stuff to Lupin.
" — Hermione and Ron after Harry yells at Remus for leaving his wife[src] Remus Lupin, his former DADA professor Ron was among the students who were very impressed by Remus Lupin's teaching when he was professor of Defence Against the Dark Arts, during Ron's third year at Hogwarts. Though Ron was initially afraid when he learned Lupin was a werewolf, he quickly realised that being a werewolf didn't change who Lupin was in human form, and the issue never came between them.
In 1997, when Harry fought with Remus for attempting to temporarily leave his pregnant wife to aid Harry, Ron, and Hermione in their mission, Ron expressed his disappointment in the way Harry handled the situation, despite agreeing with the point Harry was trying to make. Ron and Lupin fought alongside each other in the: Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Battle of the Astronomy Tower, Battle of the Seven Potters, the Attack at the Burrow, and the Battle of Hogwarts, where Remus was murdered by Antonin Dolohov.
After Remus was murdered in the Second Wizarding War, Ron remained close with Remus's son Teddy Lupin, who was also Harry Potter's godson. Sirius Black Hermione Granger: "But they'll catch Black, won't they? I mean, everyone's looking for him." Ron: "Sure. Except no one's ever broken out of Azkaban before... and he's a murderous raving lunatic." — Ron about Sirius Black after he escaped from prison[src] Sirius Black, his best friend's godfather Ron first learned about Sirius Black in 1993, when the latter became the first wizard to escape from Azkaban, and was believed to be planning to track down and kill Harry at Hogwarts.
As it turned out, Sirius was actually after Ron's pet rat, who was actually the Animagus Peter Pettigrew in disguise. At the end of their third year, Ron, Harry and Hermione learned that Sirius was not only innocent of the crime of betraying Lily and James Potter to Lord Voldemort, but that he was, in fact, Harry's godfather. After revealing Pettigrew's true form, Sirius felt responsible for Ron's loss of "Scabbers," and gave him an owl as replacement.
During their fourth year Ron along with Harry and Hermione provided food for Sirius, who was hiding in a cave outside of Hogsmeade. During the Second Wizarding War, Ron and Sirius bonded during their time cooped up at 12 Grimmauld Place, and Ron defended Sirius against all of Hermione's critical remarks about Sirius's selfish treatment of Harry as a friend rather than a godson, as well as her belief that Sirius was trying to live vicariously through Harry, Ron, and herself.
Minerva McGonagall Ron: "[McGonagall Transforms] That was bloody brilliant!" Minerva McGonagall: "Thank you for that assessment, Mr Weasley. Perhaps it would be more useful if I were to transfigure Mr Potter and yourself into a pocket watch. That way, one of you might be on time." — Ron and Professor McGonagall in Transfiguration class[src] Minerva McGonagall, his head of house and professor Minerva McGonagall was the Transfiguration Professor and Gryffindor Head of House during Ron's time at Hogwarts.
She was very strict, and regularly reprimanded Ron, Harry and Hermione for the many instances they ended up bending or outright breaking school rules. However, she was just and impartial as a disciplinarian, and always acted in the best interest of all Hogwarts students, often showing lenience and understanding where it was deserved. She clearly cared about Ron, as she cared about all of her students, and Ron fought alongside McGonagall during the Battle of the Astronomy Tower and the Battle of Hogwarts, both surviving the Second Wizarding War.
Nymphadora Tonks Ron: "Listen, no bloke in his right mind's going to fancy Tonks when Fleur's around. I mean, Tonks is okay-looking when she isn't doing stupid things to her hair and her nose, but [...] " Ginny Weasley: "She's a damn sight nicer than Phlegm!" — Ron and Ginny comparing Tonks and Fleur[src] Nymphadora Tonks, his friend Nymphadora Tonks was a young witch, a metamorphmagus, and an Auror.
Ron met Tonks in 1995, when both became members of the Order of the Phoenix. Ron generally liked Tonks and found her amusing, despite at one point comparing her looks unfavourably to Fleur Delacour's. Saying that she was merely okay looking "when not doing stupid stuff to her nose and hair". He also mentioned that she was not as much of laugh anymore as she was starting to "look more and more like Moaning Myrtle".
Tonks and Ron fought alongside each other during the: Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Battle of the Astronomy Tower, Battle of the Seven Potters (where they were paired together), the Attack at the Burrow, and the Battle of Hogwarts, where Tonks was murdered by Bellatrix Lestrange. Ron was devastated by her death and after the war, he became a friend of Tonks's son, Teddy. It can also be assumed that he was around Teddy often, seeing as his best friend was Teddy's godfather.
Severus Snape Hermione Granger: "How many times have you suspected Snape, and when have you ever been right? Dumbledore trusts him, he works for the Order, that ought to be enough." Ron: "He used to be a Death Eater. And we've never seen proof that he really swapped sides." — Ron's mistrust towards Snape[src] Severus Snape, his professor Severus Snape was the Potions Master and Head of Slytherin House during Ron's time at Hogwarts.
He made no attempt to hide his preference for his own House, nor his disdain for the Gryffindor students, and showed particular dislike for both Ron and Hermione as Harry's best friends. Ron believed that Snape, who was a former Death Eater, had never truly joined their side, and that he was still working as a double agent for Voldemort. During his fifth year, Ron suggested that Snape was trying to open Harry's mind to Voldemort rather than close it during Harry's Occlumency lessons.
In 1997, Ron fought in the Battle of the Astronomy Tower, after which he learned that Snape had killed Albus Dumbledore, and a few months later, during the Battle of the Seven Potters, Snape accidentally cursed off George Weasley's ear, while aiming a Sectumsempra at a Death Eater who was poised to kill Remus Lupin. Ron, like most of the Order and Hogwarts staff, viewed Snape as a cowardly, heartless murderer.
However, Ron witnessed Snape's death as ordered by Lord Voldemort during the Battle of Hogwarts, and eventually learned that Snape had been working for their side all along, at great personal risk. It was likely that Ron came to appreciate Snape's unwavering bravery. Albus Dumbledore "Yeah, Dumbledore's off his rocker all right!" —Ron's own unique compliment of Dumbledore[src] Albus Dumbledore, his headmaster Ron was raised within the wizarding world, and knew of Albus Dumbledore, Hogwarts headmaster and probably the greatest wizard of the time, since childhood.
Ron met Dumbledore when he first attended Hogwarts in 1991. Although Ron never spent much, if any, one-on-one time with Dumbledore, it was clear that Dumbledore trusted Ron, along with Hermione, and valued their individual skills. He felt Ron and Hermione could be trusted to aid Harry in his mission to destroy Voldemort's Horcruxes, the existence of which was a secret of vital importance unknown to a living a soul aside from the trio, Dumbledore, and Voldemort himself.
After Dumbledore's death, it was discovered that the Headmaster had bequeathed Ron his Deluminator. Unknown to Ron at the time he received it, the Deluminator had the magical ability to return Ron to his friends if the time came, as Dumbledore had anticipated, when Ron would part ways with Harry and Hermione during their quest. The Deluminator's function as a homing device for Ron's friends suggested that Dumbledore understood Ron well enough to know that as surely as he would struggle with the mission, he would be just as certain to want to return to his friends' sides.
Ron, along with Hermione and Harry, visited Dumbledore's portrait after the Battle of Hogwarts to discuss the fate of the Deathly Hallows. Lavender Brown Ron: "I love you, Hermione." Hermione Granger: "Don't let Lavender hear you saying that." Ron: "I won't. Or maybe I will...then she'll ditch me..." — Ron and Hermione discussing Ron's relationship with Lavender[src] Lavender Brown, his ex-girlfriend Lavender Brown, a Gryffindor in Ron's year, developed a crush on him when they entered their sixth year.
At first, Ron seemed vaguely flattered, but not particularly interested in Lavender's flirtatious behaviour. However, after becoming angry with Hermione and being taunted by Ginny over his lack of romantic experience, Ron began an exhibitionist relationship with Lavender. The couple was frequently seen snogging in public, much to the disgust of a jealous and hurt Hermione as well as Ginny, who considered him a "filthy hypocrite" because he insulted her for being caught kissing her boyfriend earlier in the year.
Lavender threw herself into the relationship almost obsessively, alarming even her best friend, Parvati Patil. Lavender called Ron by the annoying nickname of "Won-Won", pressed Harry for details of Ron's feelings for her, and gave him a necklace with the words 'my sweetheart' for Christmas. After that Christmas, Lavender tickled Ron, and was noticed by Harry. Ron found these traits irritating, and admitted to Harry that the relationship consisted of little talking and mostly snogging.
Ron and Lavender kissing or "snogging" By his birthday, Ron was unhappy in the relationship; he feigned sleep whenever Lavender visited him in the infirmary after his poisoning and said Hermione's name in his sleep. He was spared the task of breaking up with Lavender when she became suspicious that something was going on between him and Hermione, and ended the romance. Ron was happy to see things finished, though he felt guilty for it, but Lavender was upset for some time afterwards.
It is unknown how Ron reacted to Lavender's death in the Battle of Hogwarts. It can assumed that he was saddened by it, as they were once friends. Viktor Krum "Hasn't he asked you to call him Vicky yet?" —Ron jealously mocking Hermione's relationship with Viktor Krum[src] Viktor Krum, his rival Ron was a huge fan of Viktor Krum, as he was the Seeker for the Bulgarian National Quidditch team, enthusiastic to the point of purchasing a miniature Krum figurine at the Quidditch World Cup and bringing it with him to school.
However, his feelings changed markedly when Krum began seeing Hermione Granger and the two attended the Yule Ball together in 1994. Despite his jealousy, Ron asked Krum for his autograph following the end of the Triwizard Tournament, much to Krum's surprise and Hermione's amusement. During Ron's sixth year, he discovered that Hermione had "snogged" Krum in the course of their brief romance, which caused Ron's jealousy of Krum to resurge.
He expressed these feelings in 1997, at Bill and Fleur's wedding, when Krum's appearance as a guest inspired Ron to whisk Hermione away to dance. Pigwidgeon "I've got to keep him up here because he annoys Errol and Hermes. He annoys me too, come to that." —Ron regarding his pet owl[src] Pigwidgeon became Ron's owl in 1994. He was given to Ron by Sirius Black, as Sirius felt partially responsible for the loss of Ron's pet rat, who turned out to be the Animagus and Death Eater, Peter Pettigrew, in disguise.
Pig, as Ron preferred to call him, was tiny and hyperactive. Ron stated that Pig annoyed the other owls, such as Errol and Hermes, and had to be kept away from them. At school, several girls commented on how cute Pigwidgeon was, to Ron's embarrassment. Though Ron often seemed annoyed with Pig's manic behaviour, it was clear he loved him, and enjoyed having an owl of his own. Crookshanks Ron: "A cat? Is that what they told you? Looks more like a pig with hair if you ask me!" Hermione Granger: "That's rich, coming from the owner of that smelly old shoebrush.
" — Ron's hatred towards Hermione's cat[src] Crookshanks Crookshanks was Hermione Granger's large, bandy-legged, ginger-coloured, half-Kneazle cat. Ron strongly disliked him at first, largely due to his antagonistic behaviour towards Ron's pet rat, Scabbers. In 1993, Scabbers, who was actually the Animagus, Peter Pettigrew, faked his own death for the second time after Sirius Black escaped from Azkaban.
Ron initially believed Scabbers had been eaten by Crookshanks, and he nearly ended his friendship with Hermione. When Ron discovered the truth about Scabbers, and found that Crookshanks had been helping Sirius all along, he seemed to appreciate Crookshanks as a good judge of character, and even half-jokingly asked the cat if Pigwidgeon was really an owl. When Crookshanks meowed happily, Ron actually seemed relieved.
It is unknown if Ron ever saw Crookshanks after the Battle of Hogwarts, since he had been left at the Burrow during Bill and Fleur's wedding. Cormac McLaggen Cormac McLaggen, his rival In 1996, Ron's competition for the Keeper position on the Gryffindor Quidditch team was Cormac McLaggen, a Gryffindor a year above him. Before the try-outs, Hermione overheard McLaggen insulting Ron and Ginny, and placed a Confundus Charm on him that made him miss his last save.
Ron thus beat him, though McLaggen claimed that this was due to favouritism. Ron greatly disliked him, which prompted Hermione to attend Professor Slughorn’s Christmas party with him to retaliate against Ron for his romance with Lavender Brown. Ron disliked McLaggen even more, and was happy when his date with Hermione did not go well, and when McLaggen did not perform well as replacement keeper while Ron was in the Hospital Wing.
 Dolores Umbridge "Bloody hell, Harry. This woman's torturing you [...] " —Ron to Harry Potter, about Dolores Umbridge[src] Dolores Umbridge, his former DADA professor and enemy In 1995, Dolores Umbridge, a Ministry employee, was appointed Defence Against the Dark Arts professor. She was a sadistic, very unpleasant woman who derived great satisfaction from torturing students as punishment (most notably, forcing Harry Potter to carve the words "I must not tell lies" into the back of his own hand, using a Blood Quill).
Ron, like most of the students and faculty at Hogwarts, greatly disliked her intrusive, hypocritical and often outright insulting ways, in return Umbridge disliked Ron, as he was a main offender of the rules and loyal to Harry and a member of Dumbledore's Army. She had an obsession with pure-blood status and both hated and feared people she called half-breeds, like centaurs and half-giants. She also hated Muggle-borns, and probably half-bloods, despite being half-blood herself.
In the end of the year, she was attacked by a group of centaurs and eventually brought to the Hospital Wing by Albus Dumbledore. Though she attempted to abscond, Peeves the Poltergeist discovered her sneaking away, and led the students in driving her out Hogwarts. Ron met again Umbridge in 1997, when he was disguised as Reg Cattermole, a Ministry official, and while Umbridge was in charge of trying Muggle-borns before they were sent to Azkaban.
Harry stunned Umbridge during the interrogation of Mary Cattermole, when Umbridge attempted to flaunt Salazar Slytherin's Locket as proof of her relation to the Selwyn family. After Hermione retrieved the locket and replaced it with a decoy using the Geminio curse, Harry, Ron, and Hermione proceeded to help the Muggle-borns awaiting trial escape from the Ministry. After the Second Wizarding War, Umbridge herself was imprisoned in Azkaban for life.
Ghosts Moaning Myrtle: "Here I am, minding my own business, and someone thinks it's funny to throw a book at me." Ron: "But, it can't hurt if someone throws something at you. I mean, it would just go right through you." — An example of Ron's unintentional insensitivity to ghosts[src] Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington Ron's lack of sensitivity causes him to be unpopular with the Hogwarts ghosts, namely Nearly Headless Nick and Moaning Myrtle.
Ron first met Nearly Headless Nick in 1991 during his first welcoming feast. He knew Nick because he heard Fred and George talking about him. Nick requested that Ron should address him as "Sir Nicholas" instead of Nearly Headless Nick. During later feasts, Ron would annoy Nick by reminding him he was dead and how much he enjoyed food. Ron met Moaning Myrtle in 1992, during the re-opening of the Chamber of Secrets.
Myrtle was upset since Ginny had unknowingly thrown a diary at her. Ron pointed out that it couldn't hurt Myrtle since she was a ghost, and the book would go through her. Myrtle swooped down on Ron with rage and sarcastically commented that everyone should throw books at her and make a game out of it. Lord Voldemort "He beat you!" —Ron to Voldemort (talking about Harry Potter) during the Battle of Hogwarts[src] Lord Voldemort, a hated enemy As Ron was raised within the wizarding world, he had grown up fearing the name of Lord Voldemort, the most dangerous Dark Wizard of all time.
He was afraid to say the name or even to hear it, and protested when Harry refused to refer to Voldemort as "You-Know-Who" or "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named." Ron helped Harry protect the Philosopher's Stone from Voldemort at the end of their first year, when he won a game of Wizard's chess by sacrificing himself. Ron also helped Harry get into the Chamber of Secrets and save Ron's younger sister. Ron's fear of saying Voldemort's name ended up being justified and delaying the capture of Harry, Hermione and himself, as he managed to convince Harry and Hermione to refer to Voldemort as "You-Know-Who" around the same time saying the name was made Taboo.
In 1998, Ron used Godric Gryffindor's sword to destroy Salazar Slytherin's Locket, one of Voldemort's Horcruxes. The locket tortured Ron, as a "Riddle-Harry" and a "Riddle-Hermione" appeared, eventually kissing, telling Ron that he was useless, that no woman would choose him over Harry, that his own mother will choose Harry as a son instead of him, and that she wanted a girl when she had him. Ron showed the strength of his personality in by overcoming his insecurities and stabbing the locket with Godric Gryffindor's Sword, destroying the Horcrux.
During the Battle of Hogwarts, Ron was present when Voldemort told the crowd that Harry had been killed while trying to save himself. Forgetting his fear, and breaking the Silencing Charm Voldemort had placed over the crowd, Ron shouted that Harry had defeated him. Ron also witnessed Voldemort's final duel with Harry. Dumbledore's Army Neville Longbottom: "Dumbledore's Army's supposed to be about doing something real.
Or was all that just words to you?" Ron: "Maybe you don't have to do this all by yourself, mate." — Ron, along with Neville, shows his loyalty to the Army, and to Harry[src] Dumbledore's Army, his friends and allies Dumbledore's Army was an organisation led by Harry Potter, in order to oppose Dolores Umbridge, and as a supplementary means of practising defensive magic. In 1995, Ron and Hermione convinced Harry to teach anyone who was interested about protective spells and counter-jinxes that had helped him survive his many encounters with Voldemort, as the purely theoretical instruction they were receiving from Umbridge was wholly inadequate.
Six members of the D.A. fought in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. In addition to Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ginny Weasley, Fred and George, Neville Longbottom, Luna Lovegood, Lavender Brown, Seamus Finnigan, and Dean Thomas, there were eighteen other known members. The Gryffindor students who were members of the DA included Colin and Dennis Creevey, Parvati Patil, Lee Jordan (Fred and George Weasley's best friend) Alicia Spinnet and Katie Bell (members of the Gryffindor Quidditch team) and Angelina Johnson (captain of the Team, and Ron's future sister-in-law, after marrying George).
Fred and Colin Creevey were both murdered by Death Eaters in during the Battle. The Hufflepuff students were Hannah Abbott, Ernie Macmillan, Susan Bones, Justin Finch-Fletchley, and Zacharias Smith. Ron was friendly with all of them, except Zacharias, the only one who didn't fight in the Battle of Hogwarts. The Ravenclaw students were Padma Patil (Parvati's twin sister), Cho Chang, Terry Boot, Anthony Goldstein, Michael Corner, and Marietta Edgecombe.
Ron attended the Yule Ball with Padma, who wasn't pleased with Ron's appearance in his tattered dress robes, and Ron wasn't particularly fond of Michael Corner, who was Ginny's ex-boyfriend. They all fought together during the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998, with the exception of Marietta, who did not return to Hogwarts at any point. Order of the Phoenix Harry Potter: "So what is this place?" Ron: "Headquarters.
" Hermione Granger: "Of the Order of the Phoenix. It's a secret society. Dumbledore formed it back when they first fought You-Know-Who." — Ron and Hermione explaining to Harry the Order[src] The original Order of the Phoenix The Order of the Phoenix was an organisation founded and led by Albus Dumbledore. The Order included Ron's family, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Rubeus Hagrid, Remus Lupin, Sirius Black, Fleur Delacour, Minerva McGonagall, Nymphadora Tonks, and Severus Snape as well as several other notable members of the wizarding community.
In 1994, for Ron's fourth year at Hogwarts, Alastor "Mad Eye" Moody, an Auror famous for his great skill, vast experience, and growing paranoia, was appointed professor of Defence Against the Dark Arts. Prior to the start of the school year, on Lord Voldemort's orders, Moody was attacked and imprisoned in his own magical trunk by Barty Crouch Jr, who impersonated Moody and took his place at Hogwarts by using Polyjuice Potion until 24 June, 1995.
Ron clearly held Moody in high regard, as he looked forward to his classes and persistently hoped that Moody would tell him he would make a good Auror, as he had Harry and Hermione (albeit, it was actually Barty Crouch Jr who suggested Harry and Hermione consider becoming Aurors). Ron met the real Mad-Eye later in 1995, at 12 Grimmauld Place, the headquarters of the Order. Ron and Moody fought alongside one another in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries and in the Battle of the Seven Potters, where Mad-Eye was killed.
Ron, like the other members of the Order, was shocked and devastated by the death of someone as tough and skilled as Moody. Ron was also familiar with the "useless git" Mundungus Fletcher, an almost grudging member of the Order. Though Ron was initially amused by Mundungus, he quickly grew disgusted with Mundungus's continued general disregard for other people, or their property and safety, particularly when he abandoned Alastor Moody in the midst of the Battle of the Seven Potters.
Ron met Mundungus again when he, Harry and Hermione wanted information regarding the whereabouts of Salazar Slytherin's Locket and appeared amused by Kreacher's repeated abuse of Fletcher. When Ron, Harry and Hermione apparated into Hogsmeade, intent on sneaking into Hogwarts to find an object that had once belonged to Rowena Ravenclaw, they found themselves in a trap set by Death Eaters. They were saved by Aberforth Dumbledore, Albus Dumbledore's younger brother, and owner of the Hog's Head.
They discovered that they had been saved by him once before; it was Aberforth who had sent Dobby to rescue them from the Malfoy Manor after Harry saw his eye in the remaining shard of Sirius's two-way mirror. They were later also informed by Neville that Aberforth had been supporting Neville and the other DA members remaining at Hogwarts by feeding them, passing messages using enchanted coins, and generally backing them in their resistance against Severus Snape and the Carrows.
Other Order members Ron encountered were Kingsley Shacklebolt, a skilled Auror who would later go on to become Minister for Magic and who was greatly admired by Ron, Harry, Hermione, and the Weasleys; Elphias Doge, Albus Dumbledore's friend; as well as Dedalus Diggle, Hestia Jones, Sturgis Podmore, and Emmeline Vance. Emmeline Vance was killed by Death Eaters in 1996, and Podmore was imprisoned because he attempted to get into the Department of Mysteries, under the Imperius Curse, the news of which shocked and horrified Ron.
It is likely that every surviving member of the Order (except Arabella Figg, who was a Squib and unable to fight, but might have helped in another way) fought in the Battle of Hogwarts alongside Ron, Harry, and Hermione. Media Meeting Ron Weasley Ron's Sacrifice Ron Looks Into the Mirror Ron's Spell Backfires How Dare You Steal that Car Ron's Dress Robes Ron's Embarrassment I Think I Love Her File:Videoswiki.
png For more Harry Potter videos check out Wikia's video library Etymology Ronald is the Scottish form of the Scandinavian name Ragnvald, which was derived from the Old Norse Ragnvaldr, composed of the elements ragn, "advice", and valdr, "ruler". It is a cognate of the name Reginald, which is derived from the Germanic form of the name, Raginwald, meaning "the prince's counsellor". All these names carry the meaning of a person who acts as a trusted advisor to a person in power, much as Ron acted as a friend and confidant to Harry Potter.
In keeping with the pattern of Weasley family members taking names from Arthurian legend, "Ron" is the name of Arthur's lance in Geoffrey of Monmouth's History of the Kings of Britain. Ron is short for Rhongomyniad, which means "striker spear" in Welsh. Bilius comes from the word "bile", as one of the four humours discussed by Ancient Greek philosophers. Yellow bile was connected to the element of fire, which is the element of Gryffindor house, and someone with an excess of it was believed to be bad-tempered, as Ron is.
The English adjective "bilious" also applies to those who have an irritable temper. Behind the scenes Ron as he appears on Pottermore Ron is portrayed by British actor Rupert Grint in the film adaptations of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Part 2 and is one of the 14 characters to appear in all 8 film adaptations.
Ron is portrayed by British actor Paul Thornley in the original West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Jamie Waylett plays Ron when he is disguised as Vincent Crabbe in Chamber of Secrets, as do Steffan Rhodri when he is disguised as Reginald Cattermole in Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (Rupert provided the voice for the character) and Rupert Grint (himself) when he is disguised as "Dragomir Despard" in Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
Daniel Radcliffe also plays Ron in the "Seven Potters" scene. Rupert Grint is like Ron in that he comes from a large family, has red hair, and suffers from arachnophobia. Ron was the second friend Harry ever made, after Hagrid. Rupert Grint does not have a long nose, as Ron is described as having in the novels, but he does have freckles - make-up covers them and they aren't on his face, causing some fans to claim he has no freckles at all.
He also has green eyes, in contrast to Ron's blue eyes. Ironically, co-star Daniel Radcliffe has blue eyes in contrast to his character's green eyes. Ron was one of the few characters who was created before J. K. Rowling began writing the series, and whose name never changed from the original drafts. Professor Slughorn accidentally calls Ron Rupert, which, in fact, is the actor's name that portrays Ron, Rupert Grint.
In the films Ron is shown as the one to lose his head in a crisis (early on) rather than Hermione. In the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Ron is one of the group of four students to serve detention by helping out Hagrid in the Forbidden Forest. This differs from the book, since Neville was the fourth student (along with Hermione, Harry, and Draco Malfoy). This can be attributed to the significantly less amount of time spent on Hagrid having Norbert, along with the differing circumstances on how they were caught.
In the book, Ron wasn't helping deliver Norbert because he was being treated for injuries suffered when he was helping Hagrid take care of Norbert. In the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Ron is dragged away by the foot instead of by the arm by Sirius Black in his animagus form causing the leg to break instead of having Ron break it when hooking it to the Whomping Willow's root to avoid being dragged away.
In the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Ron supports Bulgaria instead of Ireland, which is who he supports in the book (despite being a Krum fanatic at the time). In the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Ron was introduced to Hagrid's half-brother Grawp at the same time as Harry and Hermione. In the book however Ron was playing in Gryffindor's championship Quidditch match during that time.
This change was due to the removal of Quidditch from the film. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Professor Horace Slughorn refers to Ron by several names, one of which is Rupert. Rowling described Ron's Patronus as a "really sentimental choice" on her part, since she has a Jack Russell. Rowling has also said that if she had a Boggart, hers would likely be the same as Ron's, as she also dislikes spiders.
 Throughout most of the series, Ron does not like to hear Voldemort's name spoken out loud, and as such never says it even when Harry and Hermione do. However, he says the name three times in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, even after asking Harry and Hermione not to. The first is at the Burrow when Hermione is packing books to take with them, and Ron says, "I forgot we'll be hunting down Voldemort in a mobile library".
The second is at 12 Grimmauld Place when Remus Lupin tells them that Pius Thicknesse is Minister for Magic, and Ron says, "Why didn't Voldemort declare himself Minister for Magic?". The third is again at 12 Grimmauld Place when Harry has a vision of Voldemort killing a woman and her children in his hunt for Gregorovitch. Together, the three try to work out what it means and Ron says, "But according to you, Voldemort's got Ollivander locked up somewhere".
Ron also said his name in The Queen's Handbag, where he jokingly says, "Voldemort's gettin' really inventive." In the films, Ron is well known for using the phrase, "Bloody hell" when he is surprised or frightened. Ron's favourite sandwich type is bacon and his least favourite is corned beef. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Ron is revolted by the coffee Hermione ordered for them at the muggle café, from which we can either assume he didn't like the café's coffee or he doesn't like coffee at all.
The latter is more possible since he was raised a wizard and knew little about muggles except from possibly his father's work with muggle objects and from being friends with two wizards/witches who were raised by muggles, so he could be so accustomed to wizard food and drink that he wasn't fond of the taste that muggles were accustomed to. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Ron was shocked that Harry and Hermione had never heard of the children's stories by Beedle the Bard wizard kids grew up with and when Hermione reminded him that she and Harry were raised by muggles and that they had grown up with muggle fairy tales such as "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" and "Cinderella", Ron thought the latter was an illness.
Ron is related to Draco Malfoy distantly; his paternal grandmother was a Black, who are related to the Malfoys through Narcissa's marriage to Lucius, Draco's father. They are third cousins, however it is unknown if they know of this. Rupert Grint says his favourite scene is the Yule Ball scene in the fourth film, the same as his colleague: Emma Watson. Ron's least favourite colour is maroon as he said when he received his Christmas jumper from his mother.
In LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, Ron has the ability to control Scabbers. The wand that Ron wields in his two full body shot posters for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 differs. In the first, the wand he is pointing is his second wand, which was taken from him prior to the film. In the second poster, he is holding the wand he obtained after the Skirmish at Malfoy Manor. Many fans feared the possible death of Ronald Weasley, yet in 2000, Rowling seemed dismissive of these fears, stating "As if I'm going to kill Harry's best friend.
" Yet, when Daniel Radcliffe interviewed Rowling for a special feature on the combo pack Blu-ray edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Rowling stated that at a time she had considered killing one of three members of the Trio, specifically Ron. Reflecting upon this, she noted that she wasn't in a good place in her life at the time. In an interview with JK Rowling and Mugglenet, when asked about Ron and the deluminator she says: "He wasn’t the most skilled, or the most intelligent, but he held the trio together; his humour and his good heart were essential.
" “Ron and Hermione, however, are drawn to each other because they balance each other out. Hermione’s got the sensitivity and maturity that’s been left out of Ron, and Ron loosens up Hermione a bit, gets her to have some fun. They love each other and they bicker a bit, but they enjoy bickering, so we shouldn’t worry about it.” -JK Rowling Appearances External links Notes and references ↑ 1.

If it works for you, it works for me... "Ok, Ron is acting really dumb...but it’s my story. Ron is my least fave character and I make him how I want him to be dumb cuz he is. Sorry for the inconvenience."r — Some bad fanfic The result of either shoehorning a good canon character into being a villain or making a villain significantly more evil than in canon is Ron the Death Eater, the inverse of Draco in Leather Pants.
This can be seen as a kind of deliberate Flanderization—often, in creating Ron the Death Eater, a fanfic writer spins their canonical non-evil actions into evil acts, uses canonical evil actions as a justification as to why they are irredeemably evil even if the canon says otherwise, and has every possible negative trait of the character exaggerated. A measure of ruthlessness becomes complete and utter sociopathy, a tendency towards holding grudges becomes an obsessive hatred of anything they dislike, slight denseness becomes raging stupidity, etc.
This is often the result of also having a Draco in Leather Pants, but it doesn't have to be—some characters inspire this sort of hatred on their own, either through their canonical blunders, having some flaw that makes them Unintentionally Unsympathetic, or just being an obstacle to the author's One True Pairing, especially if said character is a member of the Official Couple set. Or maybe they're getting in the way of the Mary Sue's spotlight.
In other cases, it seems like the target character, regardless of their original characterization, will simply default to one of two stock personalities, based entirely on their gender. Basically, male characters end up as drunken assholes while female characters end up as Manipulative Bitches. In any case, Ron the Death Eater is more likely to be a Card-Carrying Villain who does things For the Evulz than to have any plausible reason for switching sides.
The fic may also have other characters who are canonically friends of the victim act as though they have always been an object of justified loathing, rather than at least going the "shocked at betrayal" approach. Or, even if these characters end up siding with the Draco in Leather Pants, they are subject to some character defamation themselves by way of "I was stupid to love them and not you". Unlike Draco in Leather Pants, this can also be intentionally done as a comedy trope, usually of the black variety.
In this much rarer variant, the character in question is turned into a Jerkass (or worse), but the other characters' relationships with them aren't changed much. That way the main characters are exposed to, and thus constantly made to suffer by, a villain and good times are had by the audience. Named for the tendency in Harry Potter fanfics where Draco Malfoy turns good and hooks up with Hermione to have Ron—in canon a decent, upstanding sort of fellow with a few faults but firmly on the side of good who happens to have a long-standing enmity with Draco—lose his mind (or have it lost for him) and often join Lord Voldemort just for a chance to kill the sainted Malfoy.
A Sub-Trope of Demonization. Compare Die for Our Ship or Derailing Love Interests (the major cause of this trope), Designated Hero (the other major cause), The Scapegoat (when a character is blamed for an event they're not responsible for), Historical Villain Upgrade, Dark Fic, Rooting for the Empire, and Adaptational Villainy. See also Accentuate the Negative, which this trope essentially does to fictional characters.
Contrast Draco in Leather Pants. Darker and often more serious counterpart to the Memetic Psychopath, who is ALWAYS Played for Laughs And last but not least, fandoms that have so many examples of this that they needed to be moved to their own pages: Axis Powers Hetalia Death Note Gundam Harry Potter—well, yeah, it is the Trope Namer and all. My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Warrior Cats Oh, and head to Paint the Hero Black if you wish to join in the madness.
Examples (sorted by the original canons' media): open/close all folders Anime & Manga Cardcaptor Sakura: Darkest Before Dawn twists Syaoran into a Domestic Abuser just so Sakura can run weeping into Tomoyo's arms. Messy Nightmare is about a dream that Sakura has, in which she, Naoko, Chiharu, and Rika are all tiny inside Meilin's house and attempt to escape an Ax-Crazy Meilin as she kills each of them one by one.
Digimon Adventure: Tai(chi)/Sora shippers have a recurring habit of demonising Yamato/Matt by either portraying him as an unfaithful man to Sora, an abuser who attempts to beat up Sora just because she hung out with Tai a bit more often, or someone who prioritises other activities over his girlfriend to the point that Sora feels more closure in hanging out with Tai than Matt. Some even go as far as demonizing Matt to the point that he is willing to beat up Sora and even murder Tai himself.
These fanfics are largely frowned upon by many Digimon fans, complaining that even Matt wouldn't be this out-of-character. Whenever the author either invests in Daikari (Davis/Kari) or Takari (TK/Kari) shipping fics, you can expect the rival (TK and Davis respectively) to be demonized as callous jerks who are not above sexually assaulting Kari just to have the male love interest rescue her and became an Official Couple, with the rival ending up either being humiliated or even dying, completely ignoring their experiences as a Digidestined.
Even Ken and Wormmon of all characters got this treatment on occasion in the show's heyday, with some fanfics portraying them as homicidal. Sure, Ken was pretty cruel as the Kaiser, but Wormmon never was! Dragon Ball: It Falls on Me has Yamcha dedicated to ruining Bulma's family name, plot to steal her wealth, and kill Vegeta. This is contradictory to canon in several ways; Yamcha is shown remaining on good terms with her after their breakup, it's stated in series that Yamcha is not interested in power or status, him entering the relationship (which was initiated by Bulma) before he knew of Bulma's wealth, and being one of the characters portrayed as more accepting of Vegeta.
Those Magical Three Years (once found here) does this same thing to Yamcha, turning him into an abusive drunk who apparently regularly cuts Bulma. As does the story Breathe. Repeat for Black and Blue. The Highschool AU Teenage Drama has Yamcha attempt to to rape Bulma, in addition to "hearting" her. Pain is Pleasure, by the same author as Teenage Drama, has Vegeta sense great evil in Yamcha. Chi-Chi.
In canon, she can be an overbearing person whose Education Mama tendencies can reach annoying and illogical levels, which the anime plays up. She is also a dedicated mom and wife who dearly loves her family and most of her actions are done out of fear of them being hurt or killed. This last part is thrown out the window in many examples like this one which turn up her negative attributes to the point that she hates her husband and doesn't care if he gets killed and abuses Gohan.
There are also a number of stories like this one where Chi-Chi becomes an outright villain. She seems to play the bad guy in slashfic featuring Gohan quite a bit, mostly to act as the homophobic mother. The Legacy of Kaiser: In addition to bashing Yamcha, this fic inadvertently does this to Goku by having him laugh over the memory of his friends dying. Downplayed with Gine in the fanfics The Gifts We Don't Ask For and Battle of the Dead.
While her personality is the same as in canon, she is shown in Hell, despite the fact that Akira Toriyama himself states that she was a gentle person, and that she was good unlike most of the saiyans. While she did start off as a soldier before becoming a butcher, she was notoriously weak and bad at fighting, meaning it's unlikely she killed anyone. Even if she did murder a few people, she should have still gone to Heaven if she was a good person like Toriyama described.
Elfen Lied: In Heirs of the Generation, an Elfen Lied and Death Note crossover, it RetCons it so Yuka was the one that alerted the facility to Lucy's location in an attempt to have her killed, and when Lucy survives getting shot up, Yuka doesn't tell anyone in the hopes she will just bleed to death or starve to death, and when that fails, Yuka becomes a fervent Kira worshipper and prays that Kira will take care of her problem for her.
The amount of Fairy Tail fanfics that have Lucy getting either ignored or kicked out of both her team and the guild by Natsu because he wants to replace her with the newly-returned Lisanna (who is, of course, extremely bitchy and evil) is too damn high. In canon, pretty much the exact opposite situation took place: Natsu and Lisanna have had all of perhaps two conversations since she came back, she even encouraged Lucy to stay with Natsu, and Natsu and Lucy re-confirmed their status as an unbreakable team.
This hasn't stopped at least eight of these fics from popping up each week, though. Lucys Unwanted Houseguest has this happen to Lisanna, who hires three people disguised as Erza, Gray and Natsu to beat up Lucy and gives the real three Fake Memories of doing so, simply out of jealousy toward Lucy (even though Lisanna's already in a relationship with Natsu). To a lesser extent, the aforementioned three get bashed, although Natsu ends up coming off as something of a Jerkass Woobie, since he not only gets framed for a crime he didn't commit, but doesn't realize his girlfriend is responsible and is struggling with his unrealized feelings for Lucy.
The title of How Lisanna Died and Nobody Cared is mostly self-explanatory, but it's worth pointing out that Lisanna died because she committed suicide after trying to kill Lucy twice. Not Completely Broken, unlike many others with a similar premise, actually doesn't bash Lisanna, who's out fishing with Wendy and the Exceeds at the start of the story. Instead, Erza, Gray and Natsu assault Lucy for being weak and for complaining about her rent, nearly killing her.
Oddly enough, Mirajane, who's usually on Lucy's side in these fics despite Lisanna being her sister, casually insults Lucy for being a weakling. Another Chance has Lisanna pulling a painfully obvious Wounded Gazelle Gambit by using makeup to pretend to be injured and blaming Lucy, which results in Lucy getting attacked not only by Erza, Natsu and Gray, but also by Levynote , and Alzack and Biscanote .
While the Exceeds, Wendy, Juvia and Gajeel of all people don't take part in beating up Lucy, Makarov's the only one who notices the smell of Lisanna's makeup and thus realizes that she's lying. Girls und Panzer: Boys Do Tankary, found here, has one with Ami who, unlike many examples, doesn't have much of a fandom or hatedom. Initially set up as a Butt-Monkey when the male main characters force their way into her class and rub her defeat and being passed over for a promotion in her face, she decides to get revenge against them by getting them transferred for having relationships with the girls, but ends up getting demoted to Sergeant Major.
Blaming the girls, she holds them hostage and beats them up, until the boys arrive, rescue the girls and arrest her. At this point, she reveals she is working for the apparent Big Bad, "The Orchestrator," who wants to start another war, after which she is knocked out and has not been seen since. From the same fic, and a few others, Maho is depicted as an Aloof Big Sister who pushed Miho away for not living up to the Nishizumi family's standards for tankery.
This is not always done out of deliberate malice, as many writers don't know that in the Little Army prequel manga it's revealed that Maho actually loves Miho dearly, and serves as a Nishizumi heiress so that Miho will be free to choose her own path in life. In Girls und Panzer The Eagles of Oarai, Shiho not only disowns Miho for not doing tankery the Nishizumi way, but also Does Not Like Men to an absurd extreme, hating their getting involved in tankery through fighter planes, and wanting to see them as "nothing more than slaves to female kind.
" After her school loses, and one of her pilots almost dies because her plane didn't have an ejection seat, she pulls a gun on the male lead, blaming him for besmirching her honor, and gets arrested. High School D×D: In this fanfic Issei gets kicked out from the ORC and DxD Team. Both Sirzechs and Azazel kick Issei out from the DxD team because his Sacred Gear was destroyed by Revzeim Lucifer, and think he is now worthless without it.
Rias kicks Issei out from the peerage and tells him that the only reason she had reincarnated him as her Devil Servant was just to use him for his power, and never once cared about him. Mr. Hyoudou and Mrs. Hyoudou are portrayed as Abusive Parents, who along with anybody else also kick him out from their home and don't even care about their only son. It's also revealed that Mr. Hyoudou not only just beat his son when he was a child, but also sexually abused him, killed his young sister when he was only 10-years-old, and also has raped him since the age of six.
Saji is revealed as a sex offender and rapist as well in this story. Most of the characters are not portrayed in a good light in this fic. In many, many Kikyou/Inuyasha fanfics from InuYasha, such as this which is now unavailable, Kagome is turned into a shrill Alpha Bitch who bullies the eponymous half-demon every chance she gets, by making him "Sit" at even minor things (like simply looking at Kikyou instead of her).
Inuyasha eventually dumps her in favor of the revived Kikyou, or sends her back to her own time and covers up the well. It's gotten so bad there are actual groups where Kagome haters join to write bad fanfiction about Kagome being a Type A Tsundere at best and a Alpha Bitch at worst. Likewise, in many Kagome/Sesshomaru fics, for example, this, Inuyasha will be turned into a selfish Jerk Ass Bastard Boyfriend to Kagome, who bullies the sweet angelic Sesshomaru by using the Wind Scar on him, or slashing him with his claws until he bleeds to death.
There are actual groups on fanfiction.net that are dedicated to not demonizing either Inuyasha or Kagome. Love Hina An Alternate Keitaro Urashima isn't kind to Granny Hina or the Hinata Girls. Shinobu is the only tenant who doesn't have a crippling case of It's All About Me. No matter how severe the consequences of their actions, as well as constantly being informed that they're responsible for their own actions and have to deal with the fallout, they continue to blame everyone but themselves, recasting themselves as the victim.
Lucky Star In The Library, Tsukasa, having concealed her true nature behind a facade of innocence, seeks to shoot up her entire school, with Konata and Hiyori as her lackeys, after endless bullying that all three of them had (non-canonically) been through. This trope also applies to Kagami, Misao, and Ayano, nice enough in canon (even though Kagami was somewhat of a hothead), as three of her former tormentors.
Speaking of Tsukasa, Ahoge renders her insane enough to believe that Konata's hair could be grown into some kind of plant and chops her head off with an ax for such a purpose. While Samantha from Medabots was never a particularly nice character to begin with, in Powerpuff Girls Doujinshi she's downright evil. Maybe the cybernetics have something to do with it? The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya The fancomic Gulliver depicts Haruhi as a bikini-clad giantess who stumbled upon an island containing a foot-tall city and decides to go on a stomping spree.
Though that might be about more than character assassination. Naruto In Chunin Exam Day, the other members of Team Seven aside from Naruto get hit with this extremely hard, to the point where Kakashi kills Naruto for embarrassing Sasuke, indicative of a common trend of fanfic authors accusing him of favoring training Sasuke to Naruto and Sakura's detriment. It's a "Groundhog Day" Loop situation, so he gets better, but still.
Naruto One Man Team has this with multiple characters, especially Sasuke and Sakura, with Sasuke attempting and threatening rape, attempting to rob/murder Naruto, and more while Sakura agrees with everything Sasuke does. In Team 8, Hiashi gets this quite a bit. In canon, he looked down on Hinata and saw her as weak, but gradually came to respect how far she had come; in this fic, he not only tells her that she is weak to her face, but he also physically abuses her.
Another stark contrast point is how he treats Neji; in canon, after Neji loses to Naruto, Hiashi goes up to tell Neji the truth about his father, ending by prostrating himself before Neji and begging his forgiveness, but in the scene's equivalent here, he plans on punishing Neji for his defeat. It has also recently been revealed that Hiashi was most likely behind the deaths of Kurenai's old team, because one member developed the Byakugan and refused to join the branch family — which would mean becoming a slave with his life in the main family's hands.
The Comics Nix "fan"fic Training in the Village for a Massive Man has Naruto and Sasuke as an evil Camp Gay couple that is constantly trying to make Sakura's life a living hell. Even though she constantly tries to sexually harass Sasuke and tried to kill them. And the fact that they offered to help Bruce Banner and have been nothing but kind to him. Tons of fanfics do this to Naruto himself, painting him as psychopathic, homicidal and manipulative.
Surprisingly very few of them have him as the villain or Villain Protagonist, though it's worth noting that as bad the writers make Naruto there's a good chance they'll make his enemies (usually Konoha) look ten times worse. Kokuten has this with Sasuke, in a way. In this fanfic he is depicted as utterly cruel & heartless, with killing someone, without any remorse or hesitation, being his first response to any inconvenience.
While this would be more in character for him from how he been acting for a while in the manga after learnng the truth about Itachi, this fanfic is a A.U. with Sasuke going into the past and killing Itachi, meaning he doesn't learn the truth. At that point in canon, Sasuke was sane and moral enough that he didn't like killing people who weren't involved in his revenge, and he was hesitant. Kakashi is one of the most (if not the most) bashed character in fanfiction for reasons not related to shipping.
Most of the fanbase's hatred towards him was due to the belief that because he taught Sasuke his signature move, Chidori, as well as giving him intensive taijutsu training, while only teaching Naruto and Sakura the tree-climbing exercise (which improves chakra control, a vitally useful skill), he favors Sasuke over them. Some examples: In Escape from the Hokage's Hat, when confronted by Sakura on why he didn't teach her or Naruto anything while he taught so much to Sasuke, his reply was that he wasn't sure that Naruto or Sakura would make responsible use of more advanced techniques.
The irony that he taught Sasuke, the most mentally unbalanced of his Genin, an extremely lethal technique, goes completely over his head. There's also the fact that he seemed more worried about Sasuke being imprisoned for life over the fact that Naruto nearly died while attempting to bring him back, while absolutely paying no concern over what's going to become of Sakura now that Team 7 is dissolved.
In Parents Returned, Kakashi only cares about training Sasuke, and only requested for Naruto to be on his team because he thought that Sasuke having a rival would be good for his development. He only regrets not training Naruto when he finds out that Naruto is the son of the Fourth Hokage. The trend is so popular it gets lampshaded in Time Braid, as Sakura spends most of the story thinking Kakashi is a useless teacher who plays favorites because he won't train her properly while waiting for the Chunin exams.
Unlike most examples, Sakura eventually comes to avert it by realizing that Kakashi was just trying to keep Sasuke alive in his upcoming fight with Gaara. As far as he knew, Naruto and Sakuranote could go into the final stage of the exams half-prepared and still survive, but Sasuke couldn't. Pokémon: Cori Falls's fanfiction loves this trope. Jessiebelle, James's fiancèe, is portrayed as a monster who would murder Jessie in cold blood just to be able to keep James chained to her forever.
(Granted, the woman is a sadist in canon, but not to the degree Cori's fics portray her.) In a non-shippy sense, Ash Ketchum is made into a holy terror whose only purpose in life is to ruin the trio's lives, and Tracey is depicted as a fat, perverted slob who does nothing but lie around and eat. On the PokeShipping front, Just Friends? transforms cocky rival Gary into an unrepentant douchebag who goes out of his way to crush Misty's spirit with cruel words.
Three's A Crowd is an interesting case, because the author was not intending to make any character Die for Our Ship. Despite this, when it comes to the competition between Ash and Gary for Misty's love, Ash inevitably comes off as the worse person, i.e., as somebody with the maturity level of a ten-year-old even though he is supposed to have aged between the first season and the time the fic is set, making sexist comments and being so obsessive that he should probably never date any woman ever, lest he become abusive.
This fic turns loving mother Delia into an alcoholic abuser towards Ash. In the same fic, cocky rival Gary, is implied to be just as bad. Ash gets this treatment in Pokémon Black and Blue thanks to PETA. Ranma ½ Schools United presents an older female Ranma ("Okaasan") as a motherly Ki Adept who is loyal to her husband, which seems extremely out of keeping with the canon character. Some of this is intended as a mystery for the reader to solve by figuring out how things got that bad — but a partial answer is that Akane is written as an Evil All Along supervillain helping the disasters along.
The Bitter End is one of the best-known "Akane-bashing" fics, in which her jealousy and anger problems progressively escalate, while Ranma becomes increasingly more cowed and damaged. As the title suggests, it ends badly. Secrets is another story in which Akane slides from tsundere to jerkass, and Ranma abandons his old life and identity to live as a woman. Sailor Moon: I'm Here to Help: Arguably applied to Neo-Queen Serenity and the future senshi, depending on whether or not one takes Emerald's words at face value.
If he is to be believed, Serenity committed planet-wide brainwashing and the senshi were ruthless soldiers. If one takes him as an Unreliable Narrator though, this trope is averted. In the latter case, there's also Pluto, who in canon takes her duties as guardian of time incredibly seriously and in the fic allows a known criminal to travel through time and change the past and alter the Crystal Tokyo in the future.
Conflicting Convictions, a Dark Kingdom fic that portrays Nephrite in love with Kunzite to the point of being a Crazy Jealous Guy who constantly bullies poor little Zoisite. Now, Nephrite isn't a saint in canon but he's shown to be the most redeemable of the four in the first anime and to care for his fellow Shitennou in the manga. Plus, in the first anime where the antagonism originated, Zoisite was the one bullying him.
(In general, Zoisite-sympathetic fics turn Nephrite into a bully and a rapist while Nephrite-sympathetic fics turn Zoisite into a giggling sadist.) Mama's Hand turns Endymion/future-Mamoru into an abuser, while making Prince Diamond out to be a loving good guy. Unusually, though, the author makes some attempt to preserve the reputation of present-Mamoru and has him 'saved' by the events of the story, so that he will no longer turn into the evil future self.
Saki In canon, Teru is an Aloof Big Sister who has grown cold to her younger sister Saki around the time the series starts, to the point at which she refuses to speak with her or admit that she has a sister, although she does have more sympathetic, moments, such as when she appears completely shocked after one of her opponents collapses after their match. In Saki After Story, found here, she goes into an Unstoppable Rage and viciously attacks Saki for trying to talk to her after defeating her team in the tournament, and also attacks Nodoka when she intervenes, putting both in the hospital.
Science Ninja Team Gatchaman There's Something About Birdstyle warps Jun the Swan, canonically a caring Team Mom with a crush on Ken who shows a fiery temper sometimes, into a crazed shrieking harpy who would gladly see Joe the Condor dead for various reasons, the two biggest being his comments about the length of her skirt (which were completely out of line and out of character for him) and for flirting with Ken, whom she wants to keep all for herself.
Voltron: Devoted Obsession twists Keith into a psychotic Yandere who tries to murder Allura for falling in love with Lotor. By the same author, Infinite Jest portrays him as a thoughtless lout and ends with Allura desiring to kill him for being lousy in bed, and another fic has Keith abusing Allura so she can run into Lotor's arms. Yu-Gi-Oh! In Crashed, Pharaoh Atem is the victim of this, being portrayed as full of wrath and needlessly cruel to his servants, disregarding his canon personality.
This example is notable for being a milder example of portraying him as a despot, and the copious amounts of these fics tend to go hand-in-hand with turning Yugi into a Mary Sue, purehearted slave. Interestingly, Yami/Atem gets both Ron the Death Eater and Draco in Leather Pants treatment, presumably because of the sheer amount of different versions of his character and early series retooling into a straight shonen series.
The Cyborg009 fic I SHALL BE RELEASED (yes, the all-caps title is intentional) recycles the plot of Joe's True Companions from the orphanage being revived by Black Ghost. Only unlike in canon, the fic has Mary (called "Merry" here) as The Vamp out to brainwash an insecure Joe into leaving his teammates and seduce him away from his girlfriend Francoise. Taki-sensei is a stern teacher in Sound! Euphonium who Reina happens to have a crush on.
Given that the Fan-Preferred Couple is Reina and her friend Kumiko, fans really dislike Taki. The fanfic Ambitious Love takes this to a logical extreme. It takes place several years post-series. Reina is stuck in an abusive relationship with Taki and is Driven to Suicide. She ends up saved by a doctor, who happens to be Kumiko, and they rekindle their relationship. Taki does not take kindly to his wife leaving him and tries to kill her and make it look like a suicide.
Comic Books Spider-Man: In Venom: Evolution, Peter "the Pounder" Parker is your typical Jerk Jock picking on poor Eddie Brock. This occurred in a Mirror Universe created by [AragenXD], where everyone's allegiances were flipped. Parodied In-Universe in The Unwritten, about a son of a writer who got famous after creating a series of novels very similar to Harry Potter. The first two start with fragments of those books, and the third with a fragment of Frankenstein.
The first page of the fourth issue shows Harry's counterpart slaughtering Ron and Hermione's counterparts in a really terrible way, only to have it turn out on the next page that it's a Dark Fic. Richie Rich: Played for Laughs in the case of Occupy Richie Rich, which depicts the Rich family as jerkasses who have utterly ruined the world's economy and regularly flaunt their wealth over the non-rich.
An academic essay by Lenise Prater argues that it was sexist for Xavier to have sealed away Jean's Superpowered Evil Side. The fact that Jean was using these powers to throw cars around and intimidate innocent people (even before the murdering started) is conveniently glossed over. Archie Comics' Sonic the Hedgehog: Severe Misery (a college AU story) turns Sally Acorn, Bunnie Rabbot, Nicole Lynx, and Fiona Fox into cruel Alpha Bitches who run a shady sorority that engages in Draconian natured hazing rituals for the heck of it.
During and after another ritual, a demonic black dog terrorizes the four girls causing them to get into a fatal car crash. It is revealed afterwards that the latest hazing victim was actually the author's Self Insert character in disguise and had been the one who sent the demon dog after the four as revenge for the last hazing ritual in which she was the victim. The story ends with the college faculty never finding out who killed them, the self insert proceeds to violate their memorial, and gets away with it scotfree .
As bad as the author tried to make the four characters, the self insert evidently ended up looking 10 times worse. In fact, Sally herself is portrayed as an enemy in a lot of fanfiction Sonic stories by anyone who's a fan of the couple Sonic/Amy. Let's just put it this way: good luck finding at least one Sonamy story in any fanfic where Sally isn't portrayed as a complete bitch! Films — Animation The Lion King: In Scar The Unsung Hero, Scar was abused by his brother, Mufasa, who told him that he was worthless, would gladly kill him, and gave him the scar, and was bullied by most of the lionesses plus Rafiki attempts to kill him to get revenge on Mufasa and Zazu gladly took part in bullying Scar with Mufasa and didn't bother telling the lionesses how Mufasa had treated him.
The Lion King Adventures story Hakuna Matata demonises Timon and Pumbaa into evil wizards with the power to drain life from living beings for themselves. And they've been doing this for two hundred years. Simba and Nala manage to defeat them by tricking them into draining each other's life at the exact same time, causing both to die. Elsa and Anna's parents from Frozen have it bad, despite dying within the first ten minutes of the film.
Keeping Elsa and Anna separate was misguided but they're not depicted as outright Abusive Parents in canon. They're treated as Well Intentioned Extremists but are still Good Parents who love their daughters. The Ice Behind Bars presents Elsa's father as abusive towards Elsa even before the accident. He hates her for her powers and doubts that she is even his. After Elsa accidentally injures Anna, his treatment of her only gets worse.
When Anna and her mother disappear, Elsa's father uses the chance to claim that Elsa was killed along with her sister. He locks her up and regularly tortures her until Anna rescues her years later. Disney themselves were not immune to this in wanting to emphasize the Snow Queen more in a film. One of the rejected outlines for a Snow Queen adaptation with older versions of the original child characters mentioned in the movie's art book would have turned the original story's protagonist Gerda into a villainous gold-digger so the movie could end on a Kai/Snow Queen pairing.
Often, the trolls are portrayed as being Die for Our Ship level matchmakers, and are portrayed as corrupting Hans's heart, so Anna can marry Kristof, even though this violates their magic in multiple ways.note In the Alpha and Omega fic Armarok Spirit, Eve is turned into a controlling abuser who lets someone rape her daughter. In canon, she threatens to strangle Humphrey at the mere suggestion he might have done something inappropriate with Kate.
The The Hunchback of Notre Dame fandom does this to Phoebus, Esmeralda's love interest, quite a bit. They then pair her with Quasimodo/Clopin/Frollo/Jasmine/Megara/(insert literally any other character from any other piece of media here.) The fact that he was a Jerkass in the original book doesn't make it any harder. In The Land Before Time, Mr. Threehorn the Triceratops didn't like other dinosaur species, but the sequels show him working together with other dinosaurs (even if he complains about it).
Secret Love depicts Mr. Threehorn as an intolerant anti-interspecies jerk who's willing to exile children for this relationship and those who support this, cowed into submission only by Chomper's speech about him being intolerant. Stanley gets this treatment from some viewers of A Troll in Central Park, largely due to his glurge nature, not to mention the similarities between his actions in the film's ending, and the ending to the Little Shop of Horrors Director's Cut.
Films — Live-Action The Amazing Spiderman: The Amazing Spiderman 2, a fan sequel to the film, turns Gwen Stacy into a bitter mess who blames Peter for her father's death which results in, after they got back together, her insulting and berating him until they break up—to make way for the author's version of Mary Jane. The Marvel Cinematic Universe's very active shipping fandom has given us these: Motivations, despite not even being a canon character in the MCU at that point, gives this involving Mockingbird.
Depicted as Clint's ex-girlfriend who was reportedly very horrible to him, she gets seduced by Black Widow who tricks her into a filmed BDSM session where she's the submissive, after which she breaks up with her and uploads the video on the internet, which the Avengers, save for Clint, all find hilarious. You Belong With Me, a High School AU themed after the Taylor Swift song, depicts her as an Alpha Bitch in Sheep's Clothing, who cheats on Clint behind his back, so as to give Natasha someone to be a love rival for, along with other horrible acts of cruelty.
In Train, Mockingbird, having broken up with him twice before, gets back together with Clint but tries to force him to break off his connection to Widow, resulting in them breaking up again, and later revealing her to be a villain. The Value of Strength is a Dark Fic which reinterprets the character of Steve Rogers (whom you may know better as Captain America) as a total sociopath. La Vie en Rose, similar to the above examples of Mockingbird, does this with Sharon Carter/Agent 13, depicted as an unhinged stalker and a transphobic.
The Massive Multiplayer Crossover Avengers and Oliver & Co.: Ragnarok Madness manages to single handedly demonise Tony Stark, Daisy Duck, Heimdall, Jarvis, Nick Fury, nearly all of the Gargoyles (sans Lexington) plus Elisa, Sunna and even the freacking fossils at the Museum of Natural History. Serpent's Kiss turns the secretary that kissed Captain America in Captain America: The First Avenger into a HYDRA agent who was attempting to assassinate Steve Rogers.
This is an interesting example of this trope, as the author states they did this because they thought the character had some unexplored potential. Uncompromising Principles, along with many other post Civil War fic, portrays Iron Man as a saint who can do no wrong, and Cap as a bully and a hypocrite who has no real reason. Sky High (2005): "The Good, The Bad, and The Misunderstood" derails Will, the Adorkable Ordinary High-School Student protagonist, into what could be described as a unholy cross between Zapp Brannigan, Vernon Dursley, and Darwin Mayflower in the name of pairing his Lancer and eventual Love Interest Layla with The Rival, Warren.
From the beginning he's shown to have let his fame go to his head and begun to cheat on Layla (who is herself portrayed as an Extreme Doormat who always goes back to him rather than plantifying his ass), eventually graduating to beating her and finally, strapping her with a torture device and locking her in the closet for Warren to swoop in and save. The reviewers hated this, and Will was hastily retconned into an evil clone; chapter 8 ends with what seems to be an appearance by the real Will, but before it could be explained where he was or how the clone replaced him, the fic went dead.
"Don't Mess With a Peace" has Will's newfound celebrity post-movie go to his head (a very common theme in anti-Will fics) and he begins to feel he is entitled to have Layla. At the end he flat-out attempts to rape her before being defeated in a Heroic Sacrifice by Warren's Fixer Sue sister. In "Layla at the End," he outright murders her, backhanding her through a wall that falls on top of her. "Guerre et Paix" turns Steve, Will's father, into an unrecognizable drinker and Domestic Abuser, who, given that the story pairs Will with Warren, also gets the obligatory token homophobe role.
It's also revealed that Josie cheated on him with someone heavily implied to be Wolverine, which is portrayed as a good thing. By the end, Steve's been carted off to rehab and Josie runs into the arms of her Hopeless Suitor, Mr. Boy. In the film, his worst trait is simply being a little too obsessed with the family name. Star Trek Into Darkness: In Unbeaten, Spock advocates Brainwashing for the Greater Good on all of the Augments (and the rest of the crew sees no problems with this).
Also, at one point, Spock attempts to poison Harrison with a hypo of something that overwhelms Harrison's regenerative capabilities that he just so happened to be carrying around (or in other words, Spock attempts premeditated murder). The Wizard of Oz: According to this Cracked article, Glinda the Good Witch is a machiavellian villain who manipulated a teenage girl into removing her two rivals from power.
Pitch Perfect: Hilariously subverted in How Aubrey Got Arrested. Aubrey tries to host a Haunted House for a fundraiser, but it fails due to the laziness of the Bellas. This causes Aubrey to snap and start killing the other Bellas. However, this is later revealed to have all been an act. Thor: In the films, Odin is portrayed as an elderly, well-meaning if flawed king and caring father who wants to retire and stressed at seeing his life's work undone with no replacement ready.
But because Loki is played by Tom Hiddleston, Loki fans often try to frame Odin as an abusive father and warmonger who ripped Loki from his own people, filled his head with false dreams, taught him to to hate his own people, and is imposing Asgard imperialism upon the Nine Realms due to his own lust for power. The Agony Booth's review of It's a Wonderful Life frames Mary as the villain of the film, causing George's poverty, his father's death, and his perpetual isolation in Bedford Falls due to having wished once that they could be married and giving away their honeymoon money.
Interpreting her spur-of-the-moment wish as such as ignores that 1. even if Mary's wish caused Mr. Bailey's death, she had no idea it would go that way, 2. Mary giving away the honeymoon money was done with George's full and no-reluctance consent. Star Wars: The "Darth Jar Jar" meme is an odd example of using Ron the Death Eater in order to invoke Draco in Leather Pants at the same time as an attempt to see the character in question Rescued from the Scrappy Heap.
In canon, Jar Jar Binks is a well-meaning but Lethal Klutz who is banished upon pain of death for being obnoxious. Despite getting into trouble, his bumbling inadvertently causes every positive story turn in The Phantom Menace, proving that even the seemingly useless have value. Unfortunately, said obnoxiousness created a venomous Hatedom and he became a punchline in mainstream media. Then some people started to recognize some of his influences and backstory, but came to the opposite and erroneous conclusion that Jar Jar was an evil Sith Lord manipulaing even Palpatine.
..and therefore somehow a more worthwhile character than his canon arguably inspirational self. Literature Tolkien's The Silmarillion has Of Stars and Spirits of Fire, which transforms Indis into a classic Wicked Stepmother who treats Fëanor with contempt and cruelty. The Girl Next Door is a Les Misérables fic that features, among other... interesting things, Cosette torturing love-rival Eponine with a Sweeney Todd-esque straight razor.
This from the girl who's canonically a Spoiled Sweet Proper Lady who had no idea Eponine was in love with the same guy, or indeed any real interaction with her at all. Trixie Belden fanfic You Have Got to Be Kidding Me! (found here) combines this trope with a healthy dose of Die for Our Ship, Slutshaming, and the Madonna–Whore Complex. Dot Murray, a character who appeared in only a minimal role in a single book in the series and had no dialogue at all, is derailed into a an unrecognizable ditz who is "fake", antagonistic, shallow, and interested in Anything That Moves.
Never mind that Dot was canonically portrayed as likable and talented, Trixie herself admitted Dot was amiable and her jealousy of Dot was her own personal fault, and Jim and Dot expressed a mutual romantic interest in each other. Here, none of the Bob-Whites like Dot at all, Dot is jealous of Trixie and rude to her, fixated on scoring Jim as a boyfriend, and continuously portrayed as "easy" and "loose" (ie, wearing a bikini to swim while the other girls wear one-pieces) in an attempt to villanize her.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Moon Daughter (which you can find here), gives Annabeth this treatment. She is described as a "blonde slut" who moves to the Aphrodite cabin, has "herpees from smoking Pot", and dumps Percy so he can "abbandon the prep lifestyle." The similarly titled but unrelated fic Daughter of the moon portrays Annabeth as a "bitchy" traitor who cackles evilly upon killing Percy.
The fic's 'heroine' eagerly tortures her with a machete, and everybody just accepts this. The Twilight fic "Through Your Eyes" - which features a Bella whose shield has made her blind, among other talents - depicts Jacob's fixation on Bella as becoming particularly intense, to the point that he physically threatens Bella to try and make her be with him in the belief that she is his imprint, ignoring all Pack-presented evidence to the contrary.
In the end, Bella is forced to And I Must Scream use her powers to completely cut off Jake's senses, leaving him biologically alive but totally unaware of anything around him. The Origami Yoda fic The Rise of Jango Fortune turns Harvey, a Jerk with a Heart of Gold in the original series, into a Jerkass who laughs when Mike gets thrown into a wall. Dresden Files This fic makes Marcone an obsessive Yandere who keeps a shrine to the object of his affections.
Marcone may have been unrepentantly Pragmatic Evil in canon, but it's still greatly OOC for him to make a museum exhibit out of someone's hair. This trope is Older Than Feudalism: Greek heroes from The Iliad and The Odyssey often become outright villainous in Roman works (the Romans imagined themselves to be of Trojan origin). Virgil and Ovid both portray the Greek heroes at Troy mostly in terms of their post-victory atrocities.
Medieval European writers usually knew Latin but not Greek; as a result, they tended to inherit the Romans' bias. Dante places Odysseus in the eighth circle of Hell, and both Chaucer and Shakespeare are merciless to the Greeks in their versions of Troilus and Cressida. Live-Action TV Shenny authors in the The Big Bang Theory tend to ignore Sheldon's canonical aversion to romance, his unique brand of love for canonical girlfriend Amy, his close, almost father/son like relationship with his roommate, Leonard, and the fact that while he does count her as one of his closest friends, his relationship with Penny defaults to Vitriolic Best Buds.
Instead, Sheldon becomes a poor soul that's been in love with Penny for years, but that "asshole Leonard" (canonically an incredibly nice, often stepped over, guy) saw her first (ignoring the fact they are canonically a loving couple). Eventually Penny (canonically an independent weapons expert/sharp shooter/Girly Bruiser) will escape from under his abusive, whiny thumb, and will somehow find her way to Sheldon.
One of the more egregious examples can be found here. While it does play with the typical amount of time it takes for Penny and Sheldon to find each other, it makes up for it by being written specifically to piss off fans of the canonical characterizations and also giving the Draco in Leather Pants treatment to Leonard's mother, Beverly, who in canon was an Abusive Parent that basically thought mind raping her kids was okay if she could use the experience to write parenting books and push them to the tops of their fields as adults.
In-Universe example: the gang at Cheers have an elevated Deconstruction about the Road Runner / Wile E. Coyote shorts to the point where an Orphaned Punchline has Norm exclaiming, "Oh, I suppose that proves that the coyote is the Anti Christ?" One particularly bad and extremely unsettling NSFW Degrassi fic called The Junkie Journals turns Riley Stavros into a Mind Rapist, gay basher, drug addict, Jerk Jock, Villain Sue, and Karma Houdini.
People walk away from the story feeling like they've come across the seedy underbelly of the world. All of this without warning or explanation. The main character of the story is also rescued by Peter, but it's a mystery why the so-called "author" couldn't just make up an OC who's evil instead of having to defile Riley's character. Allecto's controversial critiques of Firefly are something of an extreme example of this; the actions of several of the characters (especially the Caucasian males) are often twisted in order to fit an extreme radical feminist reading or her preconceived notions about gender relationships, thus unfairly painting them as evil.
One such example is Allecto's citing of Zoe calling Mal "sir" (presented as an ingrained habit developed from their days together in the military, simply for the reason that he was her superior officer and you call your superior officers "sir" in the military) as an example of Mal being evil and sexist. It's also fair to suggest that Allecto tends to let her preconceptions affect her views of the characters, such as her assumption that Wash must be abusive toward Zoe (despite the fact that she could "kill me [Wash] with her pinkie") because every relationship between a white man and a woman of color that Allecto has seen has allegedly been abusive.
The Friends fic Somebody Save Me (found here) has portrayed Richard—a perfectly decent guy whose relationship with Monica only broke up because of May–December Romance problems—as a drunken, selfish, physically and emotionally abusive asshole who doesn't care for Monica at all, so that Chandler can have an even better reason to be there for her. Why an OC abusive boyfriend cannot be made up, seeing as Monica dates dozens of men throughout the run of Friends, is a mystery.
It's not the only one of its kind either. And it's not even like he ever got in the way of the Chandler and Monica pairing either. Star Trek: Voyager: The otherwise fairly well-written Janeway/Seven Just Between Series has a tendency to do this with any male in Janeway's history, turning Cheb Packer into a raving drug addict, smuggler, and murderer who's terrible in the sack and even bringing Justin Tighe Back from the Dead in order to demonstrate that he would have made a much worse spouse than Seven.
And then there's SF Debris's reviews of the various Star Trek series. Picard of The Next Generation is generally portrayed as a fanatical child-hater who would happily order Worf to saw up a teddy bear in order to interrogate a child, and may or may not have ordered Jack Crusher to his death solely to increase his chances of getting with Beverly; Voyager reviews, meanwhile, react to the uneven characterization of Janeway by portraying her as a demented supervillain who views her crew as entertainment dispensers—even inventing a holiday, "Condescending Bitch Day", which happens every day and involves selecting someone to torment—and is planning to take over the entire Alpha Quadrant when she gets back.
Chuck Sonnenberg has even joked that Janeway is his favourite villain. There's an entire website dedicated to doing this to Gwen Cooper of Torchwood. In them, she's reduced to a shrill harpy who wants nothing more than to get into Jack's pants and hurt Ianto in the process, no matter how little sense it makes at the time. There's even one story where the rest of the team can't stand her and murder her with no remorse.
It makes one wonder why they didn't just fire her. For clarity's sake: the team has shown no sign of despising her in Canon, and she gets along well with Ianto despite the fact that she has two-sided UST with Jack (with whom Ianto is eventually an Official Couple). The author of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer fic Penny For Your... is especially blatant when it comes to clearing away Buffy's other boyfriends in order to leave room for her "one twoo wub", Spike.
Angel is depicted as an arrogant idiot child with a god-complex, while Riley is turned into a sadistic monster whose attitude actually improves once he's turned into a vampire. And of course, Buffy's friends are all okay with her getting with Spike, even the vampire-hating Xander. Spuffy authors really don't give Angel or Riley a break. The fanfic Five Words or Less is another, albeit much milder example.
Riley is portrayed as a bastard boyfriend who likes to gleefully beat up Spike for no reason other than he's proving to be a better match for Buffy, and while Angel isn't bashed nearly as much as Riley, there is one instance where he comes off as a little too childish and petty. Back when he was first introduced to the show as Lucy's future husband, fics doing this with Kevin Kinkirk of 7th Heaven were a dime a dozen.
Here's an example. The trend died down a bit after season 8, thankfully. In the Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Superman crossover The Child of Rao, Willow is a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing who stole Jenny Calendar's magic books immediately after learning she died, frequently uses black magic, hates Cordelia and Faith with a passion for being more attractive and confident than her, and has tried to break up Xander and Cordelia multiple times with magic.
The author uses the justification that Willow became addicted to black magic much sooner than canon in this story. Many, many images, videos, and audio recordings depict Barney the Dinosaur as a child murderer courtesy of the show's Periphery Hatedom. And to a lesser extent, Elmo. Speaking of Sesame Street, this website from 1997 depicts Bert as an evil man siding with Adolf Hitler and being present at events such as the Kennedy assassination.
SMG4 depicts Teletubbies as insane, xenophobic, crowbar-wielding maniacs in his videos. Music The fanmade video series 'Welcome To Vocaloid' does this to Meiko out of nowhere. Literally. They make her into a boyfriend stealer and bitch for no apparent reason. Tabletop Games In Dragonlance canon, Kender are treated as one of the better of the "good" races, with many of both the novels and the game sourcebooks spending a great deal of effort talking up their pure hearts and innocence.
Statements like "Kender are the eternal children of Krynn" and how Krynn would be a darker place without them are common. However, years of experience at the tabletop of kender characters "borrowing" the wizard's spellbook and the cleric's holy symbol, all justified by their actual canon lore and characterization, has led to them becoming, in fanon, a despicable blight of inconsiderate thieves who are either brain-damaged or playing dumb.
On some boards, killing Kender is considered to be Poke the Poodle-level evil at worst, as opposed to canon, where it's treated with about the same weight as murdering children. This is primarily because a Kender's more distasteful traits in canon are because they truly don't know any better and aren't actively interfering with the reader, whereas the player sitting across from you with a smug grin on his face most certainly does know what he's doing and is usually screwing the game up for you in the process.
There's a theory among Dungeons & Dragons fans that Pelor, the Greyhawk sun god who more or less embodies Light Is Good, is actually evil - depending on your version, he's either actually a god of fire, deserts, and burning, or a cover identity of Zarus, an obscure god of human supremacy. The evidence for this consists of a few artifacts with destructive aspects designed for undead-hunting, a myth where he refused to assist one of his clerics in the Cycle of Revenge, and the fact that one of his clerics was once shown casting an Evil spell (which wasn't considered Evil when said cleric was casting it).
Though it's clearly a joke, just as many people have taken it seriously. Video Games Ace Attorney: Klavier Gavin is one of the few rivals who isn't an Amoral Attorney, and is The Charmer. In these fics (hide your kids first), both by the same author, well... this comment left on one of the fics will explain: Okay, I know that Klavier can be mean(in a funny way) but THIS mean? That's sick.
That's just sick! Maybe he likes Ema but not that much. Why would he rape her? I know its fanfiction but GAWD. Iris is sometimes changed from misguided but kind and well-intentioned person to Extreme Doormat who will do whatever her sister asks her to including murder. Case in point: This fic has her actively help murder Phoenix even though her canonical motivation for participating in Dahlia's necklace plot in the first place was to prevent her from doing just that.
Borderlands 2 has an In-Universe example in Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon's Keep (a abridged retelling of the main story in the form of a Dungeons & Dragons-esque game). Tiny Tina makes you fight an Expy of Angel, who turns into a giant maniacal spider-woman. That's because she's pinning Roland's death on her, when in reality, Handsome Jack shot Roland from behind after Angel died in the battle, due to having her Eridium supply destroyed.
Dragon Age: The Crown of Thorns gives this good to Bhelen, complete with ridiculously long rant. Five Nights at Freddy's: While he's already a bad guy (or at least as much as the animatronics in general are), Balloon Boy/BB's dickery gets bolstered quite a bit, most infamously in Five Nights at Fuckboy's. A number of people, such as MatPat of Game Theory, believe the murderer and Phone Guy to be one and the same, citing how both were security guards and how one of the former's sprites has him holding an object interpreted to be an old-fashioned phone, among other things.
This has largely died down following the release of the third game, as it shows the killer met his end after Freddy Fazbear's Pizza was closed and left to rot, wheras Phone Guy died possibly years earlier when it was still in operation, thus disproving the theory, but a number of people (such as the aforementioned MatPat, as seen here) still believe it regardless. Fire Emblem: One particular fic is a Sacred Stones fic that treats Lyon this way, making him out to be manipulative and passive-aggressive and even making Eirika resent him for trying to take her away from Seth.
The Big Decision, an Erk/Florina fic that paints Serra as a jealous bitch of the worst kind who would happily let Florina die just so she could have Erk all to herself. Forever With You, an Ike/Soren Melodrama in which Micaiah goes from Well-Intentioned Extremist My Country, Right or Wrong to a jealous bitch who hates Soren to death for simply being the technical rightful heir to Daein and even goes so far as to have him killed.
Jealousy, a Chrom/Boy!Avatar fic that makes no bones about how the author feels about Sumia and her relationship with Chrom. Sumia goes from a sweet, clumsy, friendly girl who may have a crush on her prince to a whiny, petty little bitch who actively tries to break up Chrom and the Male Avatar's "true love". Boy!Avatar doesn't come off too well either, turning him from a loyal friend into a just as petty jackass who tells Sumia "Well I had his child, so you can just back the fuck off.
" Sumia gets it again in this fic, portrayed as a bitter, hateful bitch who wanted Chrom all for herself and only helps out an ailing female Avatar just so Chrom and the others won't yell at her. This also slides into Double Standard, as Gaius harbors feelings for the Avatar but falls more into the camp of I Want My Beloved to Be Happy. This L'Arachel/Rennac fic has L'Arachel married to Innes, who is portrayed as a controlling jerk who bruises her wrists to keep her from scratching during sex and is implied to be having an affair with Vanessa.
(This also leads into Good Adultery, Bad Adultery, as L'Arachel has been carrying on an affair with Rennac for a long time but her cheating is justified because "they're in love".) Corrin in Peril warps Laslow and Odin into cruel, callous abusers who mistreat and rape Corrin and gloat about killing Queen Mikoto to Corrin's face. YANDERE SUMIA, just like the title implies, turns Sumia into a Yandere who murders all the other women who could possibly be Chrom's "waifu"- Maribelle, Sully, Olivia, "Female Avatar" and even the Maiden.
When Chrom refuses to marry Sumia because she is a "waifu killer," she murders him, too. Mega Man: This artist from deviantART writes the eponymous protagonist of Mega Man this way simply because he destroys their favorite robot master(s). Gaming website Destructoid does this intentionally with its Mega Man alphabet, since it's supposed to be biased towards the Robot Masters. Narrator: M is for Mega Man, a hero to some.
But in Robot Land, he just ruins all the fun. In the Legend of Zelda fanfic, Zelda's Honor, even though it is zigzagged and justified within the context of the story, it is still shocking to see Ruto, the Zoran princess turn evil for the majority of the fanfic; often times swapping sides based on either mood or circumstance. Played straight with Kafei who is first introduced as chivalrous and good but turns full-on villain by the end of his story arc Nerf NOW!! also did this to The Legend of Zelda series star Link.
Overwatch: In canon, Mei is an Adorkable scientist with a love for all things and a tragic backstory. To the fandom, she is the embodiment of evil incarnate. This is mainly due to her playstyle, which involves freezing opponents, shooting them through the head with icicles, becoming temporarily invincible, and large ice walls that block off doorways and chokepoints, making her very frustrating to fight against since nearly all her attacks are designed to keep enemies from doing anything at all.
Canon Bastion is a sentient robot with a kindly nature and PTSD-like trauma. But since, like Mei, he's very difficult to kill and has such overwhelming firepower that he can lock off huge areas of the maps, fanon Bastion is regarded as a vicious Terminator-like slayer. Sonic the Hedgehog: Traitor's Blood does this to Tails of all people. Fed up with Sonic "never respecting him" and Amy "being a damn whore whose too stupid to see that Sonic doesn't love her", Tails decides to murder them in cold blood (even cackling evilly after he's done it).
The fanfic Bloody Domination took Anti-Hero Shadow the Hedgehog and turned him into an insane, remorseless paedophile by the second chapter, rapidly moving on to a complete psychopathic serial killer and rapist, driven insane because... well... why the hell not? The author was apparently bent on discovering just how gruesome a story she was capable of writing, and most reviewers seemed to find it successful (while others didn't seem to get that this was the point).
Many demanded a sequel... Super Mario Bros.: Mario gets this treatment in Super Tanooki Skin 2D for wearing fur... despite said fur not coming from an animal at all. Mario is seen like this by a great part of the fanbase (particularly when those two Game Theory (Web Show) videos came out), mostly because of Luigi (Luigi doesn't get as much screen time as him, but many people make it look like Mario mistreats and abuses his brother), the endless enemies he stomps (other playable characters aren't blamed), and his relationships with Daisy and Pauline (both relationships are long since dead) besides Peach.
Some of these fans use a mildly OOC moment of Mario stepping on Luigi's foot in a Mario Tennis game as an example of Mario abusing his brother, but the Mario & Luigi series where he is shown to love his brother and come to his rescue various times (to name an example) is usually ignored. In Brutal Mario Mario is apparently trying to take back the Mushroom Kingdom he ran as a dictatorship beforehand.
Endlessly done to Luigi in Super Mario World ROM hacks. Some examples: SMW YEAHHH has him as the true villain and final boss S Mario has this, according to the translation raocow is working with. Luigi: "Brother, I've become a wielder of Black Magic." In the Super Mario World creepypasta I HATE YOU, the level that the storyteller discovers ends with Luigi facing off against Mario, apparently sick of always being in his brother's shadow.
He also seems to have been working with Bowser the entire time. What follows afterwards is a cutscene where the two fight, ending with Mario punching Luigi into a pit of lava in the arena. Spyro the Dragon: Ember was included in The Legend of Spyro: A New Dawn mainly to defy this trope because the author was sick and tired of her getting this treatment by the fandom. Quite a few readers agreed and she ended up being the Ensemble Darkhorse.
Touhou: The Chinese Touhou doujin Yuyuko's Yukkuri Farm goes to the extreme and has Yuyuko raising yukkuris in order to eat their babies (warning: link is to Danbooru and has NSFW ads). The author is extremely fond of depicting Yuyuko as a sadist and has a major dislike of her. A Dark Fic author by the name of Stripe Pattern believes Byakuren, a kind, selfless Buddhist magician who believes in equality between humans and youkais, is a psychotic monster.
In Stripe Pattern's doujin Love and Peace, Byakuren is shown helping youkais slaughter humans for food before she was sealed, saying that since humans and youkais are equal, youkais eating humans is exactly the same as humans eating rice and fruit. The author actually quotes Byakuren's background to support the "fact" that she's evil.The same author also depicts Sanae, a happy-go-lucky ditz with racist tendencies and an overt fondness for youkai exterminationnote , as a very serious, sadistic Blood Knight who hates her own goddesses (people she loves in canon) who goes insane frequently.
One author, Zounose, has Byakuren come up with a way to keep the youkai she takes care of from eating people: use the corpses of recently dead babies to fertilize the fruit trees she grows, so that the resulting fruit technically counts as human fleshnote . Just so we're clear that the author doesn't consider this to be a good thing, everything is done in sinister tones and Byakuren chews on the flesh of one of the fruits, saying it's the secret to her youthnote , which is, for obvious reasons, a major no-no in Japan.
Or anywhere else. The same artist also considers Sakuya to be willing to murder her own mistress, someone she's undyingly loyal to in canon. There's a mildly popular series among a certain subset of fans revolving around Koishi, who can manipulate subconsciousnesses, being a cannibalistic, sadistic psychopath who drives all of Gensokyo into mass murder and torture. Note that, in canon, Koishi is considered to be brain-dead, with absolutely no thoughts or personality of her own.
note That said, it should be noted that Koishi isn't the one causing the insanity, but was simply set up like this by the true antagonists so they could put Yukari in a position to be killed. This is subverted in the doujin The Silence of the Rabbits, which depicts Eirin as a sadistic monster who does cruel experiments and is also a cannibal. The subversion is that this isn't the real Eirin, but a clone that Eirin created to manage the other clones that she created, but who went evil, incapacitated and imprisoned her.
The clone wanted to come up with a poison that could kill a Hourai immortal, but despite her advances, she feared the original, and it turns out during the climactic battle between the Eirins that Eirin created her using the template for the Reisen clones rather than her own. With some characters, it gets up to a Memetic Mutation, as shown on Memes.Touhou. The opposite is rarer, due to White and Gray Morality in canon.
Kid Icarus Uprising 2: Hades Revenge gives this treatment to Dark Pit, or as he is referred to in the story, Pit 2. In the source material, he is neutral at worst, while the fanfic has him as part of the Big Bad Ensemble. His track record in the story includes attacking a university and submitting various tortures upon the children within, stealing a nuke, then building his own when it's stolen off him, sacrificing Pit to create a 'zomboy' army, stealing The 3 Scarred Treaures, unleashing The Smooze on the world, teaming up with Hitler, Stalin, Frollo, and David Cameron, tricking Cloud Angle into destroying the world, framing Pit for terrorism, brainwashing Mao Zedong into attacking Japan, and building a laser cannon to bring the world to his mercy.
In Undertale, Chara/The Fallen Child's portrayals in fanon may or may not be this. The game isn't shy about being ambiguous in their personality, and leaves hints for both Chara being rotten to the core, or the game's narrator on all routes. Despite that, until March of this year, the psychopathic portrayals of Chara were treated as canon by the fanbase, with any other portrayals of them being accused of Draco in Leather Pants - even when backed with evidence.
As an example, in the popular blog Ask Frisk and Company, Chara was the Big Bad for the entire first half of the series, possessing Sans and holding him hostage in exchange for Frisk's SOUL For the Evulz. This is despite Flowey being portrayed sympathetically in the same blog. It's only around the middle of the second and current arc that they mellowed down. Nearly all of Undertale fanfiction featuring Chara before 2016 portrayed them as this, and there are still a lot of sites and work that still firmly adhere to this interpretation of them.
The popular AU "Underfell" thrives on this, twisting all of the normally nice, normally pacifist characters into utter monsters. "Horrortale" does this too, to a different extent. Pokémon: Darkest Night twists Grimsley into a sadist who regularly rapes female challengers to the Pokemon League and has done the same to Shauntal. In fact, Grimsley gets this treatment fairly often due to his sinister appearance and having a habit of gambling, although usually not to the extent of this fanfic.
Another fic by the same author, Silver Bindings, warps Well-Intentioned Extremist N into a psychotic, possessive Yandere who kidnaps Hilda and forces her to be his queen. When she protests, he has her thrown in a dungeon and beaten. When she won't have sex with him to produce an heir, he rapes her. When she escapes, he stalks her and tries to have her "soul mate" Hilbert murdered. It's particularly ironic seeing as his actually psychotic boss Ghestis tends to become a Draco in Leather Pants in the fanbase.
In Gym Leaders On Survivor, Morty is turned into a selfish, bossy, and overbearing prick who plans to cheat in the Survivor game so he can win. Our Eternal Journey turns Calem into an arrogant, stoic Jerk Jock who bullies Serena and constantly makes callous remarks. The PETA satire game Pokémon Black and Blue depicts Professor Juniper among other characters from Pokémon Black and White as animal killers.
As stated above Ash from the anime gets this treatment as well. Web Animation RWBY In the fic Trials of a Workaholic, Weiss is depicted as sexually abusive. This was apparently based off her Squee!ing over Pyrrha's battle skills for all of two scenes. Why the author even thought that it was sexually motivated, we don't know. In Pinned, Pyrrha—of all characters—is depicted as a rapist.
This is the girl whose greatest canonical flaw is that she's so compassionate she can't speak up for herself. Pyrrha is not the only example. Taiyang Xiao Long has been depicted a few times as being a poor parent to Yang or Ruby or. in the case Fixing A Broken Mother, a terrible husband to Summer. Mind you, Taiyang's defining character trait is that of being the best father he can be to his children, exemplified by the fact that his Establishing Character Moment is of him sleeping in a chair at his comatose daughter's bedside, and had a Heroic B.
S.O.D. upon Summer's death. In The Plus One of RWBY, Weiss is portrayed as greedy, short sighted and selfish, with all her canon acts being reinterpreted as one sided and all Rule Of Comedy thrown out. Her line "I'm not perfect, not yet" is considered a heinous act of arrogance, and causes the "hero" to go into a psychotic rage and considers killing her for it justified (he doesn't do it, but acts like not killing her is showing restraint and mercy) Web Original TV Tropes: The Trope Pantheons had an entire arc in "The Friendship Asylum" dedicated to heroes being turned into villains (via brainwashing), with the aim of the remaining heroes being to restore them to normal before they are lost to it and all of fiction is taken over.
Gentaro Kisaragi, normally an All-Loving Hero, got the worst of it and became the Arc Villain. Western Animation Adventure Time: Be My Escape does this to Princess Bubblegum, as she goes from a sweet, smart girl who occasionally acts somewhat Cute and Psycho to an Ax-Crazy, sociopathic, (implied) pedophile. The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron... thing "Jimmy Neutron Happy Family Happy Hour" depicts Hugh Neutron as a maniac who murders his wife apropos of nothing and demands that his son "bond with him" by watching TV at gunpoint.
Just another day in the life of Jimmy Neutron. Avatar: The Last Airbender: Mai in the fan comic How I Became Yours. Because how dare the woman be angry that her husband cheated on her and had a kid with another woman, clearly she deserves to be killed. Admittedly, she poisons Katara, causing her to miscarry, and later tries to kill her personally, almost killing the Out of Character but Heel Face Turned Azula in the process, but she comes off as more reasonable and sympathetic than the author intended her to be, which is surprising considering how much the author tried to derail and demonize her.
Aang in this Toph/Katara fic, Do You Hate Me?, is twisted into a swearing, angry jackass who throws rocks and hurts Toph on purpose. Granted, this does take place during "The Desert" and he was angry at Toph for not saving Appa, but he'd never go out of his way to hurt her. He, in fact, became upset after intentionally hurting buzzard-wasp hybrid creatures. It's also incredibly out of character for Toph since the canon Toph wouldn't put up with that sort of treatment from him for anymore than a second.
The last time someone "threw rocks" at Toph, she invented Metal Bending just to kick their asses in a manner which would be more humiliating than the normal Curb-Stomp Battle she's involved in. And they were highly trained mercenaries, sent by her dad, who she likes...not some kid she openly admits she thinks is an effete dilettante, like Aang. So yeah, Chickification, maybe a little. Embers. Katara's season three rage over Zuko getting Aang mostly-killed after she'd started to trust him is transposed into a season one homicidal fury that Zuko is of the Fire Nation and has the nerve to be a better healer than she is.
Since then, Katara has been publicly humiliated by the amazing Zuko in three or four different ways and has been reclaimed as an acceptable being, but is being used as a prop in the new goal of showing that Aang is a horrible, selfish boy who's deeply intolerant of everything that doesn't fit into his childhood culture (which by the way is secretly evil). Aang gets hit with this again in Stormbenders, where he's painted as a whiny, unsympathetic child who only cares about his love for Katara and isn't worthy of being The Hero the way Zuko is.
Doubles as Accusation Fic in which Sokka brutally calls him out for "not keeping up his end of the Avatar bargain" and blaming him for the invasion's failure when in canon, he blamed himself. Batman Beyond: Where's Max shifts Dana from her canon Spoiled Sweet characterization into an outright villain who orchestrates Max's kidnapping out of jealousy over Terry. Sarah from The Boondocks is a bit domineering, is a little flirty towards men, and can get bored with Tom but is still presented as in love with him.
In fanworks Sarah will frequently cheat on Tom and is sometimes even abusive towards Tom or Jazmine. For example, Chasing Pavements has her cheating on Tom multiple times and turning to drug-dealing and prostitution after he divorces her. She's portrayed as unaffectionate towards Jazmine to the point where Jazmine disowns the person she has become. Name a "baby show". Any "baby show". Nine times out of ten, users of the video maker GoAnimate will make a video of these characters, especially Caillou or Dora the Explorer, will turn them from level-headed, if not sickeningly sweet, children to Hellspawn hellbent on destroying anything and everything.
This extends to their parents as well, who go from normal and caring to Ax-Crazy at the very worst, willing to ground their children for years, decades even centuries, even for no reason. Code Lyoko fans who love to ship Odd/Aelita tend to do this to Jeremie in their fanfics, often twisting him into a possessive Jerk Ass that abuses and insults Aelita. An example can be found here . Invader Zim Born Again Christian does this to poor Dib, who's an anti-heroic Well-Intentioned Extremist in canon, but in the fic is literally The Antichrist.
Merida and Astrid: The Absesses Of The Heart and Hiccup: The Hasteful Hatred Of The Pericardium both depict Hiccup as a demented misogynistic pervert who tries to rape the protagonist/s of the story, failing horribly at that. He's also a Mad Scientist for some reason, and a cry-baby who whines to "daddy" about the protagonist/s hurting him. The Legend of Korra: Not only does Abuse Cycle (found here) take the Mako/Korra relationship down the road of Domestic Abuse and murder, but the author's notes make it clear that they think the signs of it on Mako's part are self evident in the show itself.
Voices (found here) does a bizarre inversion. The narrator (Korra's noncanon adopted sister) quickly falls for and latches onto Mako, while Korra is portrayed as being an irresponsible ditz who has no sense of manners or responsibility and needs her sister to be her "manager", because she can't take her Avatar training seriously (ignoring how, in canon, Korra loved being the Avatar more than anything).
Given that the author proclaimed a rather loud hatred of Asami, in the notes of another fic, it's no surprise that she turns out to be an Equalist Sympathizer with little to no sympathy once she's found out. A fic called High School Romance (which can be found here, if one were really that curious) turns the sheltered but painfully honorable Asami into a shallow, spiteful Alpha Bitch. As per the previous example, this is the result of the author unabashedly hating the character for getting in the way of Makorra.
The Secret Show: Sneaky Agent and other fanfics written by agentmatt portray Alphonse, normally a gentle Italian artist and Anita Knight's canon boyfriend, as a sadistic asshole bent on killing Victor Volt because he stole his girl. The Simpsons: The fic Hidden Secrets, a Lisa/Nelson romance, portrays Dogged Nice Guy Milhouse as a rapist and eventually a murderer. Steven Universe: The violent Troll Fic Steven And Amethyst 2: The Choice Between Good And Evil, from the same author as the above stories that do this to Hiccup, portrays Connie as a psychotic, unclean, partial Asian stereotypenote who's trying to break up Amethyst and Steven to have Steven for herself.
This might have been a Stealth Parody of guessing that she would be subjected to Die for Our Ship, since this was published around Connie's debut and beforehand pairings like Steven/Amethyst and Steven/Pearl were popular. Amethyst herself isn't written as a saint, either; the "prequel" (the stories seem to have nothing to do with each other) has her randomly kill a woman just for telling them to leave a restaurant.
The whole story-pair is probably best summed up by this quote: "The sea god Thalassa most distastes, so she sends evil heterotrematan crabs with eye stalk cat cocklets to violate these evil inhumane bitches." Teen Titans: It's hard to tell in The End of Ends, but the author was aiming for this portrayal of the Titans, even though Beast Boy's Wangst, stalking, descent into outright villainy, and eventual death are behavior commonly associated with characters who get this treatment.
.. And this is his Creator's Pet we're talking about! Return of a Titan by RainthelingeringSentiment shows Robin to be a Manipulative Bastard who threw Beast Boy out of the team, afraid Starfire is attracted to him. In the end of the fic, he ends up as Slade's apprentice and Star ends up with Red X. Geoff in the Total Drama fanfic Total Drama Luxury Tour. About a third of the way into the story, he goes from being one of the nicer competetors (as he is in canon) to being insane and overly violent, with one of his actions even giving Trent a serious injury that forces him to be removed from the game.
After his elimination, he is shown to become so crazy that all he can say is "Bridgette," the name of his ex-girlfriend. Total Drama: Some Stars gives us Mike, The Generic Nice Guy in canon, and the Establishing Character Moment of imitating Manitoba Smith to make his wife cry. This is explained in-universe as expanding upon the implied Split-Personality Merge after the much-reviled Reset Button in the finale of All Stars.
By Word of God, this was used as an excuse to remove Mike first, considering his canonical character boring and offensive (ironically, the writers of the fic like this Mike better than his canon self, since they feel he's an actually rounded character like this), since they felt they just had to feature him in a season where an entire team is a recognized Spotlight-Stealing Squad. He does, however, retain his canonical concern for Zoey, and even has a few moments where he's regretfully aware that he's becoming crueler.
Transformers fan Raksha has a whole series of essays detailing how the Decepticons are the truly oppressed minority and actually noble creatures (yes, even Starscream and Megatron) and that the Autobots are the bad guys. X-Men: Evolution: Not Just A Sleepover (found here) states right at the beginning that it's for non-Jean and Cyclops fans, and just gets worse from there. Tsunami (found here) depicts Jean Grey as a cliche Alpha Bitch, with everyone vocally denouncing her as a two-faced bitch, all while her powers are degraded to Pre-Claramont Comics!Jean level in order to "fix" how "perfect" she is.
In Diamonds Are A Fuzzy Dudes Best Friend (here) Cyclops and Jean get this treatment. Jean gets pretty much nothing but abuse from Emma Frost with everyone stating how she 'deserves' it, while Cyclops is depicted as a moron who just follows either Jean or Xavier's every word. Logan Vs Lance (here) has Avalanche portrayed as a cheating, abusive, Bastard Boyfriend to motivate the X-Men to beat him up so Kitty would have a reason to break up with him.
Web Of Shadows turns Rogue into a mean spirited Satanist. (here). Although it's worth noting that the whole thing is a Troll Fic and a Stealth Parody of Spider-Man's resident Canon Sue Carlie Cooper and of this type of Character Derailment. In the former ending before it was continued, it turned Carlie Cooper and all Mary Sues into evil entities that try to take over fictional universe. Sure, the eponymous character of SpongeBob SquarePants can be annoying and troublesome, but he is still well intended.
Despite this, many people who believe that the cartoon suffered Seasonal Rot, will paint him as a Villain Protagonist, who annoys or causes trouble on purpose. The fanfic, Squidward Wins! is a notable example. South Park: The fanfic Strike is written by an author who hates the depicted pairing, and it shows. In this fic, set many years after canon, Stan (nicknamed "Darth Stan" by the reviewers) is turned into a possessive Domestic Abuser and Control Freak, who beats Wendy regularly, so much so that he caused her to have five miscarriages before the story even starts.
He constantly belittles her intelligence and prevents her from getting a job (even though he spends all of their money on alcohol) and continually uses their son as emotional blackmail, constantly threatening to take him away from her because of her alleged bad parenting, blaming her for the kid's slow language development. He is convinced that she is cheating on him, and even goes so far as to shoot and kill her out of irrational jealousy.
Though this turns out to just be part of a story-within-a-story, the rest of the abuse is not, as the story was written by another character in order to deter Wendy from going back to him. It is quite difficult to imagine the canonical Stan doing anything like this, let alone the canonical Wendy allowing the relationship to deteriorate to this point to begin with. The other characters aren't any more in-character: Kyle is Stupid Neutral about the whole thing, Cartman is the one to take initiative in getting Wendy out, and Heidi and Bebe somehow get convinced, using the same flimsy logic as Stan, that Wendy is trying to steal Cartman from Heidi, though they see reason at the end.
In Daria, this has happened to just about every character at some point, due to the fandom's penchant for Darker and Edgier or Dark Fics. An odd but notable case is Skylar Feldman. A one-off character who basically served as a Spear Counterpart for Quinn, there have been multiple fics that depict him as an insane rapist or murderer, such as "Sins of the Past." It's become a bit of a fandom joke at this point, with No Fourth Wall fics having him wonder why everybody thinks he's a psychopath.
Naturally, Die for Our Ship has had quite an effect on Tom, but given his Scrappy status he gets it outside of shipping too. Again, somewhat of a fandom joke at this point, with the Fan Nickname "T(h)om" for (often over-the-top) evil depictions. "Of All The People That Won't Be Missed" pairs Jane with Todd Ianuzzi from the parent show, and the two become an Outlaw Couple. Notably, the author intended to end it with the pair dying, but when fans made it clear that they either believed or wanted them to survive, a new ending had them survive, kill more people and get a happy ending, as a "Take That" to the readers.
In the Miraculous Ladybug fic Rumors, schoolyard bullies Kim and Chloe try to rape someone. Yeah, they're jerks in canon, but...really? The Sidekick fic Lost and Found does this to Vana, who, while already an Alpha Bitch and a selfish jerkass, at least had the occasional flash of kindness towards Eric, Trevor and Kitty. This fic takes it so far, she may as well be Satan. She's turned into an abusive girlfriend to Eric after he uses the Ga-Ga Goggles on her, in which after a brief period of kindness, she goes mad and forces him to build a statue of her, throws her own mother out of her own mansion, makes him give up the Sidekick Academy to get a job, refuses to pay the power bills in her mansion and forces Eric to do it instead, stabs him with needles, forces him to watch her kissing several other boys, and near the end of the fic it's revealed she never was affected by the Ga-Ga Goggles, and everything she did was of her own volition.
It also turns out she was the one who caused Maxum Man to go missing by kidnapping him, jealous that he chose Eric over her, and she then goes on to attempt to kill Kitty and actually kills Trevor when he tries to stop her, before finally being killed herself by Eric.
