The numerous deaths across all different media in the Harry Potter universe have yielded many memorable last words.

Novels[edit]

  • Master — I cannot hold him — my hands!
    • Who: Quirinus Quirrell
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
    • Note: Character was being burned by Harry's mystic protection from Lord Voldemort, whom had fused into Quirrell's body. Voldemort fled, leaving Quirrell to succumb to his wounds.
  • Phoenix tears. Of course, healing powers, I forgot. But it makes no difference. In fact, I prefer it this way. Just you and me, Harry Potter. You and me.
  • Lily, take Harry and go! It's him! I'll hold him off!
  • Not Harry! Please... have mercy... have mercy.... Not Harry! Not Harry! Please — I'll do anything!
    • Who: Lily Potter
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
    • Notes: Harry's mother was killed by Voldemort while shouting pleas to protect him shortly after her husband's death. This would later translate into a powerful magical protection.
  • Is that right? Lord, is it? Well, I don't think much of your manners, My Lord. Turn 'round and face me like a man, why don't you?
    • Who: Frank Bryce
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
    • Note: Character had been eavesdropping on Lord Voldemort's plans, and said this after Voldemort introduced himself. At Frank's challenge, Voldemort promptly turned around and killed him.
  • I... escaped... must warn... must tell... see Dumbledore... my fault... all my fault... Bertha... dead... all my fault... my son... my fault... tell Dumbledore... Harry Potter... the Dark Lord... stronger... Harry Potter...
  • Turned it into a Portkey. My master's plan worked. He is returned to power and I will be honoured by him beyond the dreams of wizards and witches.
    • Who: Barty Crouch, Jr.
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
    • Note: Last words spoken before Crouch's soul is devoured by a Dementor, rendering him permanently catatonic.
  • Come on, you can do better than that!
    • Who: Sirius Black
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
    • Note: Was said to Bellatrix Lestrange just after she fired a curse at him and missed. Bellatrix fired again, knocking him dead through a 'veil' in the Ministry of Magic.
  • Severus... please... please...
    • Who: Charity Burbage
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    • Note: Voldemort has kidnapped the Muggle-friendly professor to make an example of her, and Voldemort later killed her. She is then presumably fed to Nagini, Voldemort's snake. Her last words are notably similar to Dumbledore's.
  • He move! I know not, I know not!
    • Who: Unnamed German speaking woman at Gregorovitch's former residence.
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    • Note: Harry has a vision of Voldemort entering this woman's home. Voldemort demands to know where wandmaker, Gregorovitch, is, but the woman says in German that she does not know, and says he does not live there. Voldemort kills her with a curse.
  • I do not know, I never knew, a young man — no — please — PLEASE!
    • Who: Gregorovitch
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    • Note: Voldemort is searching for the Elder Wand, and believes Gregorovitch knows who stole it and where it is (although he does not know the thief's identity). After interrogating him and getting no response, he finally kills him.
  • Kill me, then, Voldemort! You will not win, you cannot win! The wand will never, ever be yours!
    • Who: Gellert Grindelwald
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    • Note: Voldemort has tracked down Grindelwald at Nurmengard, the prison he himself had built for his enemies, believing he can lead him to the Elder Wand. At that moment, Bellatrix Lestrange summons him to the Malfoy Manor because they have Harry, and he kills Grindelwald in exasperation.
  • Stand back. Stand away from the door. I am coming in.
    • Who: Peter "Wormtail" Pettigrew
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    • Note: Pettigrew goes down to the dungeon where Harry, Ron, Luna and others are kept to check on them. They overpower him, and Harry reminds him of his debt to him for saving his life in Prisoner of Azkaban. Wormtail gives in, and the enchanted hand Voldemort made for him immediately strangles him to death for his betrayal.
  • A... a s-small golden c-cup, m-my Lord...
    • Who: Unidentified goblin killed by Voldemort
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    • Note: After Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger robbed Gringotts, the goblin was sent to Lord Voldemort to tell him what was stolen. When the goblin said it was stolen a small golden cup, Voldemort realized that it was his horcrux and killed goblin in a rage attack.
  • Like it hot, scum?
    • Who: Vincent Crabbe
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    • Note: In the Room of Requirement, Crabbe and Gregory Goyle attempt to kill Ron, Hermione and Harry, and Crabbe uses a spell that produces strong, magical fire (Fiendfyre). Harry attempts to rescue everyone in question, but they escape and the room seals itself with Crabbe still inside.
  • I don't think I've heard you joke since you were—
    • Who: Fred Weasley
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    • Note: Fred is addressing his older brother, Percy, who had recently rejoined the good side, and is killed a sudden attack by the Death Eaters as they lay siege to Hogwarts.
  • Look... at... me...
    • Who: Severus Snape
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    • Note: Voldemort has set his snake, Nagini, upon Snape, and he bleeds to death, but not before giving Harry an essential memory to explain his past and his true allegiance. He looks into Harry's eyes, which are just like his mother Lily's, whom Snape loved, before dying.
  • You weren't.
    • Who: Harry Potter
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    • Note: Harry realizes that to render Voldemort mortal, he must die as to destroy the Horcrux Voldemort inadvertently planted inside of him upon trying to kill him as an infant. Voldemort at first believes Harry will not respond to his call of offering himself to stop the war around then from killing more of his allies, stating out loud that it seems he 'was mistaken...' when Harry loudly declares this upon arriving. Voldemort does indeed hit him with the killing curse, but Harry is kept alive due to only the Horcrux being destroyed by the curse and comes back to life shortly after.
  • What will happen to your children once I've killed you? When Mummy's gone the same way as Freddie?
    • Who: Bellatrix Lestrange
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    • Note: Bellatrix is taunting Mrs. Weasley, whose son Fred has just been killed. Mrs. Weasley shouts back that Bellatrix will "never touch [her] children again" and kills her with a spell.
  • Avada Kedavra!
    • Who: Tom "Lord Voldemort" Marvolo Riddle
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    • Note: He is attempting yet again to kill Harry Potter with the Killing Curse, which rebounds upon him and kills him once and for all, now that his Horcruxes have been destroyed.

Films[edit]

Harry Potter octalogy[edit]

  • What is this magic?!
    • Who: Quirinus Quirrell
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
    • Note: Character was trying to kill Harry, but could not hurt him due to a mystical protection surrounding him. When Harry touches his face, the mystical protection causes Quirrell's face to turn to stone and then crumble to dust, killing Quirrell.
  • Bloody kids.
    • Who: Frank Bryce
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
    • Note: He says this when he sees lights go on in the window of the Riddle house. He goes inside the house to investigate and hears a conversation among Lord Voldemort, Peter Pettigrew, and Barty Crouch Jr. Nagini the snake finds Bryce and goes to tell Voldemort, who kills Bryce with the Killing Curse.
  • I'm sure your parents would be very proud of you today.
    • Who: Barty Crouch, Sr.
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
    • Note: Said to Harry Potter. Sometime later, Harry and his friends go into the woods with Hagrid, where Harry finds Crouch dead at the hands of his son, Barty Crouch Jr. (in disguise as Alastor Moody)
  • Who are you? What do you want?!
    • Who: Cedric Diggory
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
    • Note: He says this upon seeing Peter Pettigrew. After he says this, a voice says, "Kill the spare", followed by Pettigrew killing Cedric with the Killing Curse.
  • I'll be welcomed back like a hero!
    • Who: Barty Crouch, Jr.
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
    • Note: Last words spoken in the film. A deleted scene explained that he had suffered the Dementor's Kiss off-screen, effectively killing Crouch.
  • Nice one, James!
    • Who: Sirius Black
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
    • Note: Said to Harry, who looks a lot like his father James, after Harry knocks out a follower of Voldemort. Shortly afterward, Bellatrix Lestrange kills him with Avada Kedavra.
  • Severus... please.
    • Who: Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
    • Note: Said to Severus Snape, begging him to kill him. It is later revealed Dumbledore was suffering greatly, as a consequence of trying to put on a magic ring that belonged to Voldemort.
  • It was a boy. It was who took it. I never saw it again. I swear on my life.
    • Who: Gregorovitch
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1
    • Note: Character is confronted by Voldemort, who demands to know where the Elder Wand is. Gregorovitch speaks this line, to which Voldemort responds, "I believe you" and kills him with Avada Kedavra.
  • Ow.
    • Who: Wormtail
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1
    • Note: Character says this after being hit with an apparently painful and possibly devastating magic attack by Dobby. Although it is debatable whether this attack killed him (as it just as easily could have stunned him), his absence in Part 2 suggests that either Dobby's attack killed him or Voldemort did the next time he arrived.
  • Such a beautiful place, to be with friends. Dobby is happy to be with his friend, Harry Potter.
  • Avada Kedavra!
  • My Lord?!
    • Who: Pius Thicknesse
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2
    • Notes: Says this to Voldemort, who, frustrated and furious with the recent destruction of a Horcrux and his growing vulnerability, kills him with the killing curse out of sheer frustration.
  • It is the quality of ones convictions that determines success, not the number of followers. (Kingsley: "Who said that?") Me.
  • It's Teddy who needs you.
    • Who: Remus Lupin
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2
    • Notes: The first line is said in response to Kingsley Shacklebolt asking Lupin who he is quoting. The second line is from a deleted scene, where Lupin finds his wife has come to fight the Battle of Hogwarts with him. These are the last words he utters before he is killed in the ensuing battle.
  • He'll sleep 'til dawn, and snore like his father. It's you that needs me tonight.
    • Who: Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2
    • Notes: Said in a deleted scene, where she comes to aid her husband in the Battle of Hogwarts. These are the last words she utters before she is killed in the ensuing battle.
  • (George: "You okay, Freddie?") Yeah. (George: "Me too.")
    • Who: Fred Weasley.
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2
    • Notes: Said in response to his brother George asking him if he was okay right before the Battle of Hogwarts begins. These are the last words he utters before he is killed in the ensuing battle.
  • You have your mother's eyes.
    • Who: Severus Snape
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2
    • Notes: Voldemort kills Snape because he believes Snape is the true master of the Elder Wand, and thus he must kill Snape to gain its power. He slashes Snape's throat with Sectemsempra, and then has Nagini finish Snape. After Voldemort and Nagini leave, Harry enters with his friends. Snape appears to be crying, but he is actually releasing his memories. Harry puts them in a flask. After he does so, Snape says this line and dies.
  • Harry. Harry, you are loved. You are so loved. Harry, Mama loves you. Dada loves you. Harry, be safe. Be strong.
  • No! No, come back! Lucius! Come back! Come back and fight! Come back!
    • Who: Bellatrix Lestrange
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2
    • Notes: She yells this line to Lucius Malfoy trying to make him join the battle, but he flees with his wife and son. Bellatrix fights Molly Weasley during the battle, but she is eventually killed by Molly after a brief duel.
  • I killed Snape!
    • Who: Lord Voldemort
    • Source: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2
    • Notes: Voldemort says this line to Harry during their final duel, after Harry claims the Elder Wand won't work for him because he didn't kill its proper master (Voldemort assumed it was Snape). They eventually duel at the Entrance Courtyard, where he is finally killed after the Wand refuses to kill its real master, Harry, and backfires his curse onto him.
