Battle of the Villains: Lord Voldemort v. The Vultori

BATTLE OF THE VILLAINS:

Lord Voldemort aka "He Who Must Not Be Named"   v.   
The Vultori aka "Those Really Pale Vampires from Twilight"

"Harry Potter (all of them)"  by  JK Rowling  
"Twilight (some of them)"  by  Stephenie Meyer

For the first villain battle, I thought it would be epic to pit Voldemort against someone. Hell, if I could, I'd just pit every villain battle against him. Because he's the standard in which I measure all villains against. Today it will be Twilight's Volturi. You know, that crazy coven of vamps that rule everything. I didn't choose just one because they'd easily be defeated against He Who Must Not Be Named. So this battle is actually 1 against 17+ people. Fair...not at all ;) 

If I screw up some fact about either villain, please don't throw tomatoes at me! It's been a while since I've read both series (and I admittedly, never read the last book in the Twilight saga). But I've seen all the movies, so that should help jump start my memory. 

So I'll be deciding which villain would be the nastiest, scariest, baddest mofo in town. Let's get started! 

Lord Voldemort (Tom Riddle)

He's a wizard? A snake? A man with slits as nostrils? It's hard to tell what Voldemort really is.  But we know he's so powerful that he has an army of Deatheaters ready to fight on his behalf. He's immortal enough that to kill him, you must find his soul...which is in seven fucking pieces! Not an easy task. He likes to kill. He likes power. And he seems to play by his own rules. 


Oh and the guy is a LORD! How did he even get that status? I don't know, but it's kind of cool...and a little scary.

The Volturi

They're the most powerful vampires in the Twilight universe, and they show up in the second book New Moon. They enforce the vampiric laws and have powers (like Dakota Fanning's ability to torture people on contact). Here's some of the scarier Volturi and their powers: 

Aro: Telepathy
Alec: Sensory Deprivation
Jane (aka Dakota Fanning): Pain Illusion
Corin: Addictive Contentment


There's lots more! And don't forget that these guys wanted to kill a pregnant Bella. Talk about murderous. 

SCORES

These scores reflect my biased opinion on which villain would most likely scare the living crap out of me and/or kill me. 

The Scare Factor
Which villain would I pee my pants if I met? Intimidation is key here. 

LORD VOLDEMORT: It doesn't much matter if you're a muggle, if you're a wizard, if you're a freaking bystander to this guy. If you come face to face with him, he looks like a pyschopath ready to cut you up into tiny pieces. And even if you don't meet him, his "reputation" is enough to make you have bad dreams. No contest. -- 5/5

THE VOLTURI: I think out of the bunch, Jane would scare me the most. She's got the power that can literally cripple you. Yet, her outwardly appearance isn't that terrifying. It's not until she actually uses her power that she becomes scary. -- 3/5 

Resilience
Can the villain be beaten? Or are the impenetrable to all offenses? If I can kill the villain easily, then they're not too villanous. 

LV: Hello? The man split up his soul into seven parts and scattered them around the world just so he could stay alive and keep wreaking havoc. I'm going to say, he's pretty fucking tough to kill -- 5/5

TV: The Volturi aren't really killed off. But in order to make them stop going after Edward and Bella, the Cullens have to bring in this other hybrid vamp. Then the Volutri shake hands and leave. Kind of a bummer. The movie even shows this epic battle (which totally fooled me since I didn't read the books) and the Volutri kill a bunch of the Cullens -- which would have upped their score -- but it ended up being a vision. The fight never happens because Aro is a p*ssy and he slinks away. -- 1/5

Threats With Impact
Empty threats are a no-go. Is the bark as loud as the bite? The best villains can measure up to what they dish out. 

LV: The guy will hang people over a dining room table and then kill them after the dinner party. He has no problem getting sadistic and carrying out all of his threats -- 5/5

TV: They threaten A LOT! But when they want Bella dead, two seconds later after Alice's vision, they want her to be a vampire within the year. They're just all over the place. And does Bella really become a vamp in their time frame? Not really. They try to enforce it, but not as effectively as He Who Must Not Be Named. -- 2/5

My Survival
This is a biased battle. And I have to take in my own survival against the villain. If I think I'll die against them, obviously the villain is a superb baddie. 

LV: He kills lots of smart wizards. He almost kills Harry Potter. I think I'd only survive if I was as brilliant as Hermoine. That being said, I probably wouldn't be a wizard at all. I'm not British, therefore I'd be a muggle and...my outlook would not be good. Not good at all.  -- 5/5

TV: Bella was able to survive. Pshhh! I've got this -- 1/5

WINNER!

LORD VOLDEMORT: 20
THE VOLTURI: 7

Was this really even fair? It's fucking Voldemort, for crying out loud. First perfect score in a battle and rightly deserved.

ABOUT THE BOOKS:


'His hand closed automatically around the fake Horcrux, but in spite of everything, in spite of the dark and twisting path he saw stretching ahead for himself, in spite of the final meeting with Voldemort he knew must come, whether in a month, in a year, or in ten, he felt his heart lift at the thought that there was still one last golden day of peace left to enjoy with Ron and Hermione.' With these words "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" draws to a close. And here, in this seventh and final book, Harry discovers what fate truly has in store for him as he inexorably makes his way to that final meeting with Voldemort. In this thrilling climax to the phenomenally bestselling series, J.K. Rowling will reveal all to her eagerly waiting readers.

When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?

To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife have led her to the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs.

Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating, and unfathomable, consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella's life-first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse-seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed... forever?

  1. This is a no-brainer, Voldie of course! He is the example of a perfect villain and I would be so scared if I would meet him in real life.

  2. Just by the title, I knew it was clearly Voldemort. But I loved your commentary on the Vulturi xD Spot on! And yes, if BELLA can survive, I'm pretty sure all of us would!

    1. The Volturi are some of the more...weaker villains out there. There's definitely no way they could have beaten He Who Must Not Be Named.

      LOL! Bella is no Katniss...that's for sure. Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. Bahahahaha "Those very pale vampires from Twilight" I almost choked on my water! But yeah Voldemort is much more an actual villain who does things like kill people instead of just floating there looking mildly irritated. Yawn!

  4. HAHAHAHAHA. Lord Voldemort is THE villain, seriously. Volturi have nothing on them. And haha, I thought the same--I'm not even British nor as smart as Hermione so I wouldn't last against this bad-a. Ralph Fiennes is just freaking amazeballs for pulling it off and starring in my childhood nightmares haha.
