Tom Marvolo Riddle (31 December, 1926 – 2 May, 1998), later known as Lord Voldemort, was a half-blood wizard who was considered to have been the most powerful and dangerous Dark wizard of all time. The son of the wealthy Muggle Tom Riddle Sr. and the witch Merope Gaunt, he was orphaned and raised in a Muggle orphanage, which remained his permanent residence through his 1938-1945 attendance at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He was a member of the Slytherin house.
His accomplishments included the opening of Salazar Slytherin's The Chamber of Secrets and the use of its monster to attack Muggle-born students; several months' service as a purchasing agent for the Dark artefacts shop Borgin and Burkes; and the attainment of immortality between the years of 1942 and 1998, a process begun upon the creation of his first Horcrux at the age of 16. Abandoning his 'Muggle' name, he became the self-proclaimed Lord Voldemort, commanded a veritable army of wizards and Dark creatures, committed numerous murders personally and through his followers, on one occasion nearly succeeded and on a later occasion did succeed in taking over the Ministry of Magic by installing a puppet Minister. Splitting his own spirit into a total of eight fragments, Lord Voldemort created seven Horcruxes; one unintentionally and without his knowledge.
Lord Voldemort was ripped from his body in 1981, and though unable to die, was not able to regain a permanent and physical body until 1995, thus spending the intervening 14 years a shell, less than the meanest ghost, but alive. In the final battle he was finally killed by his own backfiring curse, after Albus Dumbledore, and then Harry Potter after Dumbledore's death, succeeded in destroying all of his Horcruxes.
Tom Riddle's broken and mutilated soul was then trapped in Limbo for eternity, unable to move on to the afterlife or even return as a disembodied spirit.
Unknown to the world, however, before his death, Bellatrix Lestrange gave birth to a daughter named Delphini, whom she conceived with her beloved master. Delphini was conceived sometime after the Battle of the Department of Mysteries in 1996 and before Lord Voldemort's death at the Battle of Hogwarts.

*It should be noted that different recordings are used for the instances of this quote, but the same phrase is still said, albeit in a different tone.
In the films, he was portrayed by Ralph Fiennes.
Archive audio of Fiennes' performance is used in the game, due to him being unavailable at the time.
In the films and the game, Lord Voldemort's wand is depicted as a light tan or white color. However, his physical figure's wand is brown, the same as Harry's.
Lord Voldemort's appearance reuses his 2010 variant with a small change: his LEGO Dimensions figure has no nostrils.
Lord Voldemort's Toy Tag resembles Nagini, his green snake and also one of his Horcruxes.
In both of the film and novel franchise Voldemort's wand is revealed to be the twin brother of Harry's wand since they both share the same phoenix feather wand core origin. When they both sense each other's presence they both connect each other to the reverse-spell effect instead of harming each other. Then the wielders are then forced into the battle of wills, and Harry's wand succeeded forcing Voldemort's wand to regurgitate the last spells he cast and thus breaking the connection.
He is one of the two known Mind Control characters to not have the classic thick green mind control: instead his is a thin light green beam; also Wonder Woman does not have the classic thick green mind control, instead she uses the Lasso of Truth
Lord Voldemort is the only voiced character in the game to not have any reaction quotes to at least one other character.
During the film after The Joker having been emotionally hurt by Batman's insistence that he was not his archenemy, he is seen depressedly watching a news report of Superman who had recently banished General Zod to The Phantom Zone which contains some of the evilest villains in pop culture chief among them was Lord Voldemort, Wicked Witch of the West, Daleks, Agent Smith, and many more. It is here when the Joker concocts his greatest plan to free the villains from The Phantom Zone and conquer Gotham City. When The Joker is sent to The Phantom Zone he is greeted by the various villains whose first impression is to kill him but The Joker quickly states that he plans to set them all free if they help him to destroy Batman and rule Gotham City. Lord Voldemort makes the decision for them all to which all the villains joyfully agree. When Harley releases all the villains, Lord Voldemort is the first to appear taking out half the Gotham City Police Department by turning them into fish or frogs or even a fish-frog. For the majority of the invasion, Voldemort is seen next to The Joker possibly having become his second-in-command. When the bat family tries to stop the villains Lord Voldemort hinders them with a lightning storm which camouflages the weapons and assault vehicles the villains have seized from The Batcave. During the final battle when the bat family and all Batman's B-Z list villains join to defeat The Phantom Zone villains, The Joker gives Lord Voldemort The Phantom Zone Projector to stop them. But he is confronted by Batgirl who after a lengthy battle managed to get The Phantom Zone Projector away from Lord Voldemort and uses it to send him back to The Phantom Zone.
In the film, he is voiced by Eddie Izzard. In LEGO Dimensions, he is voiced by David Boat.
Interestingly, Lord Voldemort uses his 2010 variant in the film but uses his LEGO Dimensions variant in the Story Pack.
