Why Bellatrix Lestrange Was So Unstable

Has anyone ever wondered what exactly was going on with Bellatrix Lestrange? What was happening inside her head? Why was she so evil? Voldemort aside, I can’t think of another character from Harry Potter who was as sadistic, cold hearted and downright cruel as Bellatrix was. Her devotion to the dark lord unlocked her deadly potential. She was literally the female counterpart of Lord Voldemort. It always made me wonder what her line of thinking was? Why she thought like that and equally as important how did she become the vicious unstable death eater we all know her to be. Was she always destined for darkness? Or did she have a chance at a different life? In todays video I am going to delve into the life of Bellatrix Lestrange and get to the route of her evil behaviour and really try to see life from her point of view.

“Voldemort aside, I can’t think of anyone who was as sadistic, cold hearted and cruel as Bellatrix was.” Umbridge: Am I a joke to you? Edit: WOW! I definitely wasn’t expecting this many likes on a comment. Thanks everyone!
Belatrix is insane, while Delores Umbridge, is a human dementor who sucks all the joy out of life and revels in doing so.

Bellatrix is probably the best female villain ever created, she needs her own movie series where she’s the main antagonist

Because Bellatrix is “Voldemort’s female counterpart,” and also extremely loyal to him, could she be called LADY Voldemort aka the Dark Lady?
honestly she’s so badass but insane but it’s so amazing. i love it. i can’t forgive her for killing sirius or dobby but she’s downright a badass.

Paul Rymar

Bellatrix was Voldemort's most loyal Death Eater by a landslide. She is the ONLY one who suspected Snape to be on Dumbledore's side. Not only that, she also desired Voldemort, she was obsessed with him. When a person develops a crush or desire for someone, they begin to 'mirror' them, to imitate their behaviour. In numerous cases, when you see a person you respect talking in a room, you later notice you both are sitting in the same position (legs crossed, arms folded etc.).
Bellatrix simply wanted to be like Voldemort. When Voldemort was absent, she took control of the situation, became the boss in the room and gave orders and imitated Voldemort's cruelty.
However with Voldemort present, she displayed him her loyalty, she was willing to be his slave. It's 2 completely opposite personalities in 1 person. It would drive anyone to insanity.
Georgia Parr
Georgia Parr:
the reason why the people who were use blooded were so evil is because if you can't find a Prue blood wizard to have a kid with then you re going to have to do "it" with your own family members which means they were in-breading which can cause mental instability to any kids that they might have.
Sarah Riddle
Sarah Riddle:
I’ve always wondered exactly what was going on with her. Obsession and a horrid upbringing sure, but I’m talking mental health issues. And were those prevalent in her family or passed along through blood? Ironic considering her views.🤷🏻‍♀️
To whoever reads this comment...

I hope you are safe and have a great day! 👍

Bellatrix is one of the best characters in Harry Potter, she's interesting and always brings great moments to the screen/books.
Personally, I believe that while training her in the Dark Arts, Voldemort also brainwashed her, teaching her how to feel pleasure when using dark spells or "programming" her to be slavishly devoted to him.
BTW I love your videos so much, literally some of the best Harry Potter content here on YT!

I know everyone hates her, but i just can't, at least the movie version. Probably because of Helena Bonheme Carter played her. She has done such a beautiful job playing this character with her intensity, loyalty and her insanity all exactly how I imagine them when I read the books.

Edit - 0:22 I think we're all forgetting Umbridge!

Honestly I can’t decide sometimes who is more evil. Belatrix or Voldemort. They are both sadistic, cruel and the fact that she attracted Voldemort’s attention says a lot.
hmmm i can think of someone worse than bellatrix...

need a hint?

she wears pink and loves cats.

now you can finish the puzzle.

How to human
How to human:
I don't know if what we learn about Bellatrix from that fanmade film should be taken as actual fact, but since you use footage from it in this video, I assume you take it at least somewhat seriously.

In that film it is shown how Bellatrix's father erases her memories every time she seems to develop an independent sense of value. He's basically trying to make her forget she is her own person, by erasing her every memory of whatever she values out of her own interest, instead of what she's taught to value.

Imagine what that does to a person. You can't remember anything you value for yourself, and what you do remember, you don't give a shit about. I imagine, if I would be in her shoes, it would make me think I don't give a flying fuck about life in general.

As a consequence, I wouldn't fear death, which would enable me to go to great lengths to achieve whatever I want to achieve (or serve lord Voldemort). I also wouldn't have any respect for the life of someone else, since life in general has no value. Therefore, I could kill without remorse.

So, in my opinion, if anything made her go mental, it's the fact that any memory that had any value to her got erased.
I sometimes wonder how her parents actually feel about her being so extreme and evil?
Honestly in the books she was pretty unstable but I never pictured her as being batshit insane like they portrayed her in the movies.
"think of another character from Harry Potter who was as sadistic, cold hearted and downright cruel as Bellatrix was."

me: umbridge.

Certainly NOT the best pianist, but still:
The most important question about Bellatrix for me is if she really loved Voldemort. I really mean LOVE. And I think, she did. That would create an awesome dualism: Bellatrix was pure evil... but not really pure, because she was able to love - contrarily to Tom

(Personally I feel Bellatrix and Hermione would have been feminine of Grindelwald and Dumbledore)not considering Dumbledore's sister's death....) I mean Bellatrix and Hermione would have been the strongest together....
David MacDowell Blue
David MacDowell Blue:
04:48 If there was no hope for Bellatrix because of her upbringing, why were her sisters different, especially Andromeda? Why was Sirius different? Why did she, alone of them all, lack free will? Your argument makes little sense. On some level, she must have made a choice. But she could have chosen some other way. Just as it seems every other member of the Black family did, including Sirius' brother in the end.

Casey Gobel
Casey Gobel:
The old argument of nature vs nurture is pointless as the two go hand in hand, Bellatrix is a prime example of that. It's still a choice to be what you become and she choose to be this way, which is why she's not only extremely dangerous but one of the scariest people in the magical world in my view.

Although she's like this, she is probably my favorite villain in the whole series.
Dumbledore summed up her demeanor when discussing his death with Snape;
"...or dear Bellatrix, who likes to play with her food before she eats it."
Bellatrix was always insane! It was always her personality.

if it had been her job to kill harry there would be no series, she’d get the job done when he was a baby ❤️
11:59 Similar to how, when The Joker abuses Harley Quinn Harley convinces herself that it's either her fault or Batman's.

Cam 6996:
Who was more loyal to Voldemort bellatrix lestrange or Barty Crouch Jr?
Maybe psyco but I would still try going the distance with her without a seconds thought...
You have to wonder, how would she react if she learned the truth of the Dark Lord Voldemort. And I don't mean if she was told, cause if anyone told she would undoubtedly brush it off as nonsense, at very least as lies (meant to destroy the loyalty of the Death Eaters).
But I mean is, if she TRULY realized and FOUND out, like there was no way she could deny it.

Voldemort is a Half-Blood, the realization and shock would undoubtedly hit her so hard & deeply that she'd probably fall further into madness, the kind of madness that would make her "usual self" seem tame.
