In Harry Potter, Lord Voldemort was a savvy antagonist who almost took over the wizarding world. But the villainous Dark Lord wasn't always correct.

在《哈利 · 波特》中,伏地魔是一个精明的反派,他几乎统治了整个巫师世界。但邪恶的黑魔王并不总是正确的。

The main antagonist in the Harry Potter series was never a Seer, but the intense arrogance with which he carried himself made him believe he had the future predicted — a future in which he reigned supreme. Voldemort does deserve credit, however, seeing as he was successful in many other ventures due to his ability to understand certain aspects of humanity.

哈利·波特的主要敌人从来都不是一个先知,但是他身上表现出的强烈的傲慢使他相信他预测到了未来---- 一个他统治的至高无上的未来。伏地魔确实值得称赞,看在他在许多其他冒险中都取得了成功的份上,因为他有能力理解人性的某些方面。

Overall, the Dark Lord managed to bolster his powerful position with the perfect execution of many plans, which came about from the accurate beliefs he had about things that benefitted. On the flip side, he ended up losing because his hubris didn’t allow him to consider that he could be wrong.

总的来说,黑魔王通过完美地执行许多计划来巩固他的权力地位,这些计划来自于他对能从中受益事物的准确信念。而另一方面上讲,他最终还是输了,因为他的傲慢不允许他认为自己可能是错的。

10 Right: That He Would Be Remembered As A Great Wizard

10.正确的事:他将作为一个伟大的巫师被铭记

It was clear much before his hard-hitting fight with Albus Dumbledore that Voldemort had achieved his goal of being remembered forever by the wizarding world. Ever since he was a child, he knew he was destined for great things and had no doubt he was better than the rest.

在他与阿不思·邓不利多的激烈战斗之前,很明显伏地魔已经实现了他的目标,那就是被巫师世界永远铭记。从他还是个孩子的时候起,他就知道自己注定要成就一番大事业,并且毫无疑问,他比其他人都强。

Even the likes of Dumbledore acknowledged him as an exceptionally powerful wizard who had learned things about magic virtually no one else had. As Ol.ivander put it, Voldemort did go on to do great things. Terrible, yes, but great.

甚至像邓布利多这样的人也承认他是一个异常强大的巫师,他对魔法的了解几乎是其他人所没有的。正如奥利凡德所说,伏地魔的确在做伟大的事情。可怕,是的,但是伟大。

9 Wrong: Harry's Future Will Be Doomed

9.错误的事: 哈利的未来注定要失败

Voldemort’s mission was to end Harry in order to keep the prophecy from coming true. In the film version of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, he claimed that Harry would “lose everything.” This was far from the case, as Harry went on to have a long life surrounded by friends.

伏地魔的任务是杀死哈利,以阻止预言成真。在电影版的哈利·波特与凤凰社中,他声称 Harry 会“失去一切”然而事实远非如此,因为哈利最终得以长寿,且被朋友环绕着。

To his Death Eaters, Voldemort continually claimed that Harry’s days were numbered and he would personally see to it that the boy didn’t live long enough to see his Hogwarts days through. Fortunately for the Boy Who Lived, the Dark Lord was wrong in every way.

对他的食死徒来说,伏地魔不断声称哈利的日子屈指可数,他会亲自确保这个男孩活不到霍格沃茨的那一天。幸运的是,在这件事上,黑魔王在任何方面都是错的。

8 Right: Muggles Can't Coexist With The Knowledge Of Wizards

8.正确的事: 麻瓜不能与巫师的知识共存

This is something Voldemort shared with Grindelwald and will likely play out in Fantastic Beasts 3. He reveled in the idea of wizards ruling over Muggles, and as Harry put it to the Dursleys, killed them for fun just because he could.

这是伏地魔和 Grindelwald 共通的东西,所以很可能会在《神奇动物3》中出现。他沉迷于巫师统治麻瓜的想法,正如哈利告诉德思礼一家的那样,他杀死他们只是为了好玩,因为他可以杀死。

By the series’ end, wizards still lived out of the public eye since it was concluded that Muggles could never live in harmony with them. The main reason for this lies in their fear of not understanding magic. Thus, Voldemort had a point that wizards could never be accepted among Muggles.

在这一系列的结尾,巫师们仍然生活在公众的视野之外,因为人们认为麻瓜永远不可能与他们和谐相处。主要原因在于他们害怕理解不了魔法。因此,伏地魔有一个观点,那就是巫师永远不可能被麻瓜接受。

7 Wrong: Believing Snape's Love For Lily To Be An Infatuation

7.错误的事: 认为斯内普对莉莉的爱只是一时的迷恋

While there are several reasons to consider Snape a bad man, his saving grace has always been his pure love for Lily. Voldemort didn’t see it this way, having considered Snape's feelings as mere infatuation that would go away with time.

虽然有几个理由认为斯内普是个坏人,但他的可取之处一直是他对莉莉的纯洁爱情。伏地魔不这么认为,他认为斯内普的感情只是一时的迷恋,随着时间的推移就会消失。

 It was this mistake that cost him dearly, as Snape played the part of a double agent and convinced both sides he was playing the other before his real allegiance was revealed. He remained loyal to the heroes because of his love for Lily. In this regard, Voldemort was a horrible judge of character.

正是这个错误让他付出了昂贵的代价,斯内普扮演了一个双面间谍的角色,在他真正的忠诚被揭露之前,他让双方都相信他在扮演对方的间谍。由于对莉莉的爱,他对英雄们依然忠诚。在这方面,伏地魔的判断能力糟糕的可怕。

6 Right: That He Was The Heir Of Slytherin

6.正确的事: 他是 Slytherin 的继承人

There’s more information to be found about Harry Potter lore on Pottermore, but what’s plain to understand is that Voldemort was indeed the heir of Slytherin. He realized that his ancestor wanted someone from his family line to one day open the Chamber of Secrets and purge the school of Muggle-borns.

还有更多关于哈利波特传说的信息可以在pottermore里找到,但是显而易见的是伏地魔确实是 Slytherin 的继承人。他意识到,他的祖先希望有一天他家族中的某个人能打开密室,清除学校里麻瓜出身的人。

It was a horrible thing that Voldemort did, as he unleashed the Basilisk to kill Myrtle and harm several others. However, this did accomplish Slytherin’s wish, something Riddle had not only figured out but completely lived up to.

伏地魔放出蛇怪杀死了桃金娘并伤害了其他几个人,这是一件可怕的事情。然而,这确实实现了斯莱特林的愿望,有些事情里德尔不仅弄明白了,而且完全做到了。

5 Wrong: Believing The Gaunts To Be An Honorable Family

5.错误的事: 相信冈特是一个光荣的家庭

When he realized his father didn’t have any magical blood in him, Voldemort turned toward his maternal line in the Gaunts and associated himself with them by, convincing himself it legitimized him as part of the Slytherin family.

当他意识到他的父亲没有任何魔法血统时,伏地魔转向了他在冈特家族的母系血统,并通过这种方式将自己与他们联系起来,说服自己这种血统使他成为了斯莱特林家族的一员。

To this end, he considered the Gaunts themselves an honorable family by turning Marvolo Gaunt’s ring into a Horcrux. He was completely wrong, though, as the Gaunts were eventually remembered as extremists who treated Muggle-borns with prejudice and whose most noteworthy accomplishment was landing themselves in Azkaban for attacking Ministry officials.

为了达到这个目的,他把马沃洛 · 冈特的戒指变成了魂器,认为冈特一家是一个光荣的家庭。但他完全错了,因为人们最终记得,冈特一家是极端分子,他们带有偏见地对待麻瓜出身的人,他们最值得注意的成就是因为攻击魔法部官员而被关进阿兹卡班。

4 Right: People Are Easily Manipulated

4.正确的事: 人很容易被操纵

Had Voldemort stuck to the strategies he’d employed when he was known as Tom Riddle, he’d have had a better chance in the long-run. This is because he was a master manipulator in his young days, to the point where he got pretty much whatever he desired simply by using his charm.

如果伏地魔坚持他在被称为汤姆 · 里德尔时使用的策略,从长远来看,他会有更大成功的机会。这是因为他年轻的时候是一个操纵大师,以至于他几乎可以用他的魅力得到他想要的任何东西。

This included snagging every Horcrux item he wanted, gathering followers around the wizarding world, and even manipulating Ginny as a piece of Horcrux memory himself. He told Harry with glee how much fun it was to play around with people’s feelings, and Voldemort certainly knew the flaws in the human condition.

这包括抢走他想要的所有魂器,召集魔法世界的追随者,甚至操纵金妮作为魂器记忆的一部分。他高兴地告诉哈利,玩弄别人的感情是多么有趣,伏地魔当然知道人性的缺陷。

3 Wrong: That He Was The Only Who Knew Hogwarts' Secrets

3.错误的事: 他是唯一知道霍格沃茨秘密的人

It was rather ludicrous of Voldemort to believe he was a total ace in exploring Hogwarts, seeing as the Room of Hidden Things already had huge stashes of items when he hid the Horcrux in it. By the time of the Battle of Hogwarts, Voldemort believed he’d already won due to his knowledge of the Horcrux’s location.

伏地魔相信自己是探索霍格沃茨的绝对王者,这简直荒唐透顶,因为他把魂器藏在霍格沃茨的密室里时,里面已经藏了大量的物品。到了霍格沃茨魔法学校之战的时候,伏地魔相信他已经赢了,因为只有他知道魂器的位置。 

He couldn’t be more wrong, as every heroic character was hiding right in the middle of the Room of Requirement, with Harry soon realizing that the Room of Hidden Things needed to be accessed. Regardless, the Marauders group certainly knew the ins and outs of Hogwarts far better than Voldemort, anyway.

他大错特错了,因为每个英雄角色都躲在有求必应屋的中央,哈利很快意识到需要进入有求必应屋。退一步讲,掠夺者对霍格沃茨的了解肯定比伏地魔要深得多。

2 Right: Harry's Weakness Was His Heroic Nature

2.正确的事: 哈利的弱点是他的英雄本性

Even the Tom Riddle from the diary had Harry figured out, as he lured the latter to the Chamber of Secrets by using Ginny as a hostage. Later on, Voldemort created a vision in Harry’s mind to make him enter the Ministry to rescue Sirius when his godfather wasn’t actually in danger.

这点就连日记里的汤姆 · 里德尔也猜到了,因为他用金妮作为人质把后者引诱到了密室。后来,伏地魔在哈利的脑海中创造了一个幻象,让他在小天狼星并没有真正处于危险之中的时候进入魔法部去救他。

Voldemort might not have envisioned Harry sharing his protection of love with the survivors in the Battle of Hogwarts, but that was just a one-off as he’d earlier got Harry to walk to his death in the forest. Overall, Voldemort realized Harry had a knack for playing the hero and exploited this well.

伏地魔可能没有想到哈利会和霍格沃茨魔法学校战役中的幸存者分享他“爱的保护”,但那只是一次性的,因为他早些时候曾让哈利在森林里走向死亡。总的来说,伏地魔意识到哈利有扮演英雄的偏向,并很好地利用了这一点。

1 Wrong: That He Could Defeat Death

1.错误的事: 他能战胜死神

The sight of Voldemort meeting his demise is made sweeter by the film's incredible soundtrack, visuals, and the knowledge that he was ultimately wrong in the one area he didn’t want to be. By creating the Horcruxes, Voldemort figured he was immortal and could never be killed.

电影通过令人难以置信的配乐,视觉效果,让伏地魔死去的场景变得更加甜蜜。他最终在自己不想发生的事情上犯了错误的认识,通过创造魂器,伏地魔认为他是不朽的,永远不会被杀死。

In his mind, everyone who conspired to bring him down was wrong in their belief that he could be defeated, as he’d already cheated death. As it happened, he became a mortal man once again and met his demise at the hands of the same boy who ironically became the Master of Death.

在他看来,每一个密谋扳倒他的人都错误地认为他可以被打败,因为他已经逃过了死亡。事情发生后,他又一次成为了一个有生老病死的凡人,并在那同一个男孩手中死去,讽刺的是,这个男孩却成为了死亡之主。
