Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton)

Melodramatic Malfoy

Malfoy may be older, taller, and maybe even blonder—but he sure isn't any nicer.

Malfoy is at it again with his classist attitude and sneering expression. Bullying Hermione, Harry, and Hagrid for not pureblood aristocrats, Malfoy is like a booger you just can't seem to get out of your nose no matter how hard you blow.

Overall, he inadvertently has a big impact on the plot of the film. He acts impetuously, getting himself injured by Buckbeak, and turns it into a scheme to get Hagrid fired and Buckbeak executed. Just listen to what a melodramatic jerk he is:

MALFOY: I consider myself lucky. Madam Pomfrey said another minute and I could've lost my arm.

We wish. And without Malfoy's interference, the whole Time-Turner-save-Buckbeak plot wouldn't need to be nearly as complicated.

Like almost every bully, Malfoy crumbles instantly in the face of real confrontation. In Azkaban, this comes from Hermione, who does what everyone wants to do after three movies of Malfoy's malfeasance: punches him in the schnoz.

That's enough to get him out of her hair for the rest of the movie. If only it were that easy to get rid of him for good.
