SF and Fantasy's 20 Most Irritating Characters 14

14 Dobby
Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets

Role: Cringing House Elf with sock fetish

The painful truth: Cast from the same mould as Jar Jar Binks, Dobby was CG comedy relief the audience needed relief from. He was also creepy rather than cute, an anorexic Yoda with the watery eyes of a long-term psychiatric patient. We're supposed to feel sympathy for his plight, but he's such a wailing, self-pitying doormat you feel more like kicking him.
