"...the only character killed in the series..."
- Yes, she was killed by a curse by Molly Weasley. Hufflepuff Half-Giant 05:37, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
Funny, a lot of people expected Neville to be the one to off her.22.214.171.124 05:21, 19 November 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I was thinking that myself --Lupin & Kingsley 17:50, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
I think it should have been Neville to kill her after what she have done to his parents.
Where is it mentioned that Winky is Dobby´s cousin? That´s fanfiction, I think.--User:Rodolphus
Never knew that. --Lupin & Kingsley 00:04, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
It was added again.--Rodolphus 17:48, October 4, 2009 (UTC)
I don't recall that being mentioned anywhere in the books, and it couldn't have been the movies because Winky was left out in the movie version of GoF. --BachLynn23 01:27, July 22, 2010 (UTC)
Why doesn't someone put Dobby's plans to stop Harry getting to school on such as the rogue bludger and sealing off entrance to 9 and 3 quarters i was going to but was unsure of where to put it. --Miniwally(Owl me!) 09:15, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
- You can put those info. under the The Chamber of Secrets Plot section in the article. --ÈnŔîčö (Send me an Owl!) 09:03, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
Removed previous edit
Removed the following sentence: "Dobby's is the only death in the series caused by non-magical means."
Aragog died of old age. Slytherin's Basilisk had a sword rammed through its brain. Nick was (nearly) beheaded with an axe. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs).
Also the bloody baron stabbed himself to death BachLynn23 01:39, July 22, 2010 (UTC)
And Regulus Black drowned in the Inferi lake.
AND the bloody baron stabbed the grey lady because he was jealous. --Speedysnitch 04:02, May 27, 2011 (UTC)
Year of birth
Is there a Source for the year of birth being c. 1900?--Rodolphus 11:45, October 5, 2009 (UTC)

- Just read the article. -- 12:45, October 30, 2009 (UTC)
Main imageWhat do you think if we replace the current image by this? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pol 871 (talk • contribs).
- Well, I don't like a headshot image in the infobox, and Dobby looks kind of freaky in that pic.--L.V.K.T.V.J.(Send an owl!) 19:09, March 7, 2010 (UTC)
- i agree- N77 10:41, October 3, 2010 (UTC)
- Dobby always looked kind of freaky to me until I grew to love him; now I just smile when I see himWonka2011 18:23, October 21, 2011 (UTC)
Was Dobby actually forced to punish himself, or did he just do it?
It wasn't just Dobby who punished himself, Kreacher also tried to punish himself when he disobeyed orders. Dobby tells Harry in CoS, that he had to punish himself if he spoke ill of his family, and that he was always having to punish himself for something and that occasionally the Malfoy's would tell him to do extra punishments, so I would say it wasn't because he wanted to.

Not only that,the actor who played them had to make expressions so they could make the face look real then they edit it on the computer. --Speedysnitch 04:06, May 27, 2011 (UTC)
Is there a source for "1970s" being his DOB?--KiumaruHamachi 22:25, April 13, 2011 (UTC) KiumaruHamachi
What's wrong with this?
- It was a broken template. It's been fixed. - Nick O'Demus 13:38, April 20, 2011 (UTC)
- Okay. Thanks Nick. --KiumaruHamachi 14:30, April 20, 2011 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi
Etymology (or Behind the Scenes?)
Jessica Mitford (JKR's heroine) had a co-worker named Dobby. According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jessica_Mitford#Later_life:
Mitford recounts how she was invited to join the Communist Party by her co-worker Dobby, to whom she responded "We thought you'd never ask!"

Can't we say that he worked at Hogwarts from 1995 to 1998? One would assume, once you die, you would no longer have a job. AlastorMoody 03:06, March 9, 2012 (UTC)
"In 1992, he tried to warn Harry Potter of the plot to have the Chamber of Secrets reopened which he came to know via the contact between his masters and Lord Voldemort"
Except for 1991-1992, Voldemort had been in Albania since 1981 --- when was he supposed to be in contact with the Malfoys?188.8.131.52 17:09, July 26, 2012 (UTC)
May I add that on the internet Dobby is often compared to Gollum of Lord of the Rings?
What a bummer, oh well just checking, guess I'm going to continue with my all-nighter of watching all Harry Potter movies again (I'm on Order of the Pheonix) PirateBlast (talk) 05:45, September 2, 2012 (UTC)
