'The Originals' Klaus Mikaelson Or Voldemort Quote? Trust Me, This Is Harder Than You'd Think

Heroes may get all the glory in movies and television shows, but it's the villains who make each compelling storyline worth tuning in for. Otherwise, we'd just be watching a whole bunch of protagonists sitting around with nothing to do. (If I wanted that kind of level of excitement I'd simply look in a mirror.) No. The world would be extremely boring without these formidable foes darkening our fictitious doorsteps. And two such villains who should immediately come to mind are none other than The Originals very own Klaus Mikaelson as well as the Dark Lord of the Harry Potter franchise, Lord Voldemort.

I mean, when you think about it, they really do have a great deal in common. They both crave power, trust almost no one, and are willing to murder someone without a second of hesitation. (Though, in the looks department, Klaus definitely has the upper hand.) Of course, that's not to say that these two unforgettable characters are cut from exactly the same evil cloth. After all, despite how cruel Klaus can be at times, he is at least capable of expressing feelings such as love toward his close friends and family. But on the whole these two unstoppable forces share quite a few personality traits. In fact, they even sound a lot alike.

Don't believe me? Then take the test, if you dare, and see if you can determine which quotes belong to Klaus and which ones belong to He Who Must Not Be Named. Good luck!

"People quake with fear because I have the power to make them afraid."

This terrifying proclamation goes to our main vamp, Klaus.

"This is to be an execution. Tell me, how exactly would you like to die?"

That Klaus certainly has a way with words, doesn't he?

"I want you to look at me when I kill you. I want to see the light leave your eyes."

Who could forget this bone-chilling threat from the Dark Lord himself.

"Astounding what a few drops of your blood will do."

That moment when we all realize that Harry Potter's blood is now coursing through Voldemort's veins.

"If you continue to defy me, your lives will be reduced to an unending sequence of agonizing torture."

Such a threat can only come from a Mikaelson. Klaus Mikaelson to be exact.

"What better way to punctuate a day of peace than by killing someone?"

A day full of killing is a day well spent, according to Klaus.

"Each morning you will wake and know that your wretched existence continues only by my will."

Klaus always did have a flair for the dramatic didn't he?

"Only I can live forever."

Here's the part where Voldemort reminds us all who's boss. (*shivers*)

"I have seen your heart, and it is mine."

Another one from Voldemort, never failing to make us all cower in fear.

"I am a vicious, heartless monster."

But even as true as that may be about Klaus, we still can't help but love him.
