Voldemort's Patronus - Can he conjure one?

My guess would be his patronous would be a snake. His boggarts had to predict. Although i can think of some of his fears a boggart normally takes one single scare doesn't it. Maybe it's his horcruxes being destroyed. What does everyone else think?

His boggart is a corpse of himself: JK mentioned it in her interview. I don't know about his patronus though. By the way, is voldemort an animagus?

I'm don't think he is. He doesn't really need to be when he basically is Nagini's mind, and he probably has the magical power to disguise himself in better ways.

I suspect Voldemort may not be able to conjure a patronus - he's a miserable g*t.

I think he's definetly powerfull enough to conjour a patronous;probably an evil one. He could probably do it with a flick of his wand.

His patronus might be a snake as someone said. because we see him finding comfort in his snake nagini.He treats her like his best friend and remmber he doesn't treat anyone as friend. Not really anyway.

I'm pretty sure there is a post on Voldy's patronus as well. I remember replying to it before. However, I'll answer anyways. I don't think Voldemort has a patronus because it is derived from a very happy memory. Voldemort probably hasn't been happy a day in his life, which is why he is so evil. However, IF he did have one, it would be a snake...no doubt.

Voldmort might possibly not be able to conjure a Patronus becasue is most often used to protect someone against evil. And he is the untimate evil. If he is able to conjure one, I think it would most likely be a serpant.

Maybe there a latent patronus buried somewhere in his dark, shattered soul, but I bet Voldy has no idea what it is and couldn't conjure it even if he wanted to. I think of the patronus charm as "light arts" magic, as opposed to the dark arts that LV and his ilk favor. It would be something they'd despise and wouldn't think of trying to cast.

But to hazard a guess, I suppose a snake like Nagini would be a likely patronus for him.

Just saw the post above^^ Yes the patronus is a force of good, not evil. I doubt it can be used for evil purposes, and not by someone as evil as LV.

i think maybe a dementor wouldn't affect voldemort so he wouldn't need a patronus. if he did, it'd be a snake.

There is times when he's been happy. In OotP, harry is having one of his "shared dreams" where LV is laughing; that could be his happy moment. Or he thinks of an evil moment hence an evil patronous.

Well voldemort must be able to conjure a patronus......i think it will be a snake too as he is after all a slyth (heir) and a parsletongue....

As to his boggart...according to me, it will be something to do with him getting killed, as all the 6 books stress on only one important thing- Voldemort does not want to die !!!

This means voldemort is most afraid of dying and his boggart might portray DEATH

A patronus is a protection sheild but I don't think it says anywhere that it is a protection from evil. That is how we have seen them used, as well as to send messages. What I am getting at is that there might indeed be a time when Voldemort would need protection, presumably from something good like Harry.He probably learned to conjure a patronus in school. He is made happy by pure evil, so his patronus would follow suit.

Wow, this is an interesting question. You need a happy memory to conjure a patronus, but Voldemort has never been happy, well, not really. He has only been happy over bad, evil things, and that's not true happiness, right? I think you need love to be able to have a true feeling of happiness, and that's just what Voldemort lacks. A patronus is a love-related thing, and therefore I don't think voldy would be able to conjure one. But I'm sure he has other ways of defending himself.

JK said that Voldemort's boggart was his own dead body. He fears death above everything else.
