In this study the researcher focuses on observing the power device of implicature that used by Dolores Umbridge in “Harry Potter and The Orde of Phoenix” movie. There are three research problems in this research. First is what is the type of implicature used by Dolores Umbridge, second is what is the used of its implicature and the last is how Dolores Umbridge control the contribution of the conversation in the movie. Therefore, the objectives of this study are to find the types of implicature, the use of its implicature and the power device used by Dolores Umbridge in the movie. The researcher focuses in Grice’s theory of implicature, Searle’s theory about speech act to identify the used of implicature and Fairclough’s theory about power device. The methodology that used in this research is descriptive qualitative since the data are words, sentences and utterances of the conversation by Dolores Umbridge. Based on the finding, first point that the writer finds there are two kinds of conversational implicature that used by Umbridge which are generalized implicature and particularized implicature. Particularized implicature is the most type of implicature that she used. Dolores Umbridge mostly implies her meaning in her utterance and force her listener to know the context of conversation. The second point is the function of implicature which used by Dolores Umbridge. Umbridge mostly uses particularized implicature. She uses particularized implicature because she wants to coveys her utterance by implying the meaning. To know the function and the meaning of her implicature, there are five kinds of speech act that she used. She uses all kinds of speech act which are representative, directive, expressive, commisive and declarative. From the data, she uses directive speech act the most. Directive speech act is the acts when speaker suppose the listener to do something as a response. The third point that important to discuss is power device that Umbridge uses to show her power. Umbridge shows her power as a teacher, a Ministry of Magic and a Wizard with four kinds of power device which are interruption, controlling topic, enforcing explicitness and formulation. To show her power, Umbridge obviously uses controlling topic to dominate the conversation and when she talks to her listener.
