I am aware that my edits removing thier classification were undone. I do not currently have a copy of Fantastic beasts, but the Lexicon gives no classification, so are you sure that it is mentioned in the book? I did have a copy, and I remember no article on house-elfs, and if they are in Fantastic beasts, then I'm sorry.Harry Potter Fantic 1 20:06, 23 December 2007 (UTC)Harry Potter Fantic 1
Did the concept of magical elves who served one family and could be released with clothes come from The Shoemaker and the Elves? OneWeirdDude 19:56, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
cost of a house elf
in the books it says that only the rich wizards can afford a house elf why is that you dont pay them or clothe them. do the wizarding family have to buy the house elf —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Shephard123 (talk • contribs).
House-Elves in Overlord?
House-Elves (H-E) are in many ways similar to the Minions from Overlord.
- They have a desire to serve their masters.
- The H-E hurt themselves for their masters, mostly as punishment for their actions. I can imagine Dobby or Kreacher jumping into a pit of lava to make a weapon.
- They look similar. I admit, H-E do look a bit more animated while Minions look drawn, but they have the same basic body types.
- They are happy to help, although the H-E don't shriek in glee as they do their jobs.
There are more similarities, but those are the main ones. I would appreciate having a proper comparison (like H-E punish themselves, Minions sacrifice themselves) of the differences and similarities of the two races.
Am I the first one to notice this, or have others seen it before me?

Is it actually legal to behead house elves? 188.8.131.52 14:12, December 10, 2010 (UTC)
Probably not, but as the Ministry used to be somewhat corrupt, it was probably something the old and powerful families like the Blacks and Malfoys could get away with. Squall L. 07:48, April 22, 2012 (UTC)Squall L.
