- Why did Voldemort wanted to kill himself in Harry Potter?
- Why did Voldemort want to kill Harry instead of Neville?
- Why was Voldemort so important to kill Harry?
- Why does Voldemort hate Harry so much?
Voldemort wanted to kill Harry Potter because of a prophecy that claimed there was a boy whose powers will be the end of Voldemort. It wasn’t clear if that child was Harry Potter or Neville Longbottom. However, Voldemort chose Harry since they shared a similar past and was convinced he was his mortal enemy.
However, Voldemort chose Harry as his target, who was, like himself, a half-blood, rather than the pure-blooded boy named Neville. Voldemort chose Harry as he believed Harry was the most danger to him and he saw himself in Harry before even seeing him.
it was essential for Voldemort to kill him because if anyone else tried the horcrux wouldn’t be destroyed it would have just found another host. It was essential that Voldemort destroy the horcrux himself for there to be even the slightest small chance of Harry surviving.
The hate comes from the threat Harry possess and from Harry’s miraculous survival despite his multiple attempt to kill him. According to the prophecy, Harry is the only one who can kill the Dark Lord and this is one reason Voldemort hate him because he fancies nothing more than immortality.
