Empire Online has named Dobby as one of their eight "Most Downtrodden (Yet Inspiring) Characters in Movie History." Wall-E, Spartacus and Napoleon Dynamite were amongst the other "luckless individuals who at least make our lives better." The feature provides a background on both why Dobby is so miserable and so inspiring. Quotage:

Dobby continues to play a heroic role throughout the series, always putting the welfare of others before his own, and plays a role out of all proportion to his size.
The full feature can be found on the Empire Online website right here.

Thanks very much to Gazza for the tip!

Dobby is one of the best characters in Harry Potter. He was amazing. I was so sad when he died. He was so brave. He truly does deserve to be one of the “Most Downtrodden (Yet Inspiring) Characters in Movie History.”

Dobby is one of the most brilliantly written characters in the whole series and often overlooked a little, sadly. He’s also one of the most important! If Harry hadn’t set him free, there would have been no escape from Malfoy Manor.

Without Dooby we might not have ‘Roonil (this was a reference to HBP)’ (Roonil is Ron) today! Remember when he woke Harry up for the 2nd challenge to save Ron with the Gillyweed? Dobby you deserve this award! For the bestest house elf ever, support SPEW, and Winky don’t worry we love you too.
