* A meta one for director Chris Columbus: because of his negative experience working with Macaulay Culkin's father Kit on the ''Film/HomeAlone'' movies, he interviewed not just the kid actors but their PARENTS and immediately eliminated all those who came off as [[StageMom stage parents]]. The reason the Golden Trio gave such great performances over the years and grew into such well-adjusted adults? Columbus had enough foresight to make sure their performances came from [[DoingItForTheArt the right place]]. Good on him.

* The big reveal that Snape was [[spoiler:trying to stop Quirrell behind the scenes. This is one of the many occasions that hint that Snape isn't as evil as Harry thinks.]]

* When Quirrell was warning about the troll and fainting and the students begin to panic and run amok, Dumbledore stopped them simply by shouting [[BigShutUp "SIIIIIIIILENCE!!!]]. Before calmly instructing the teachers and prefects on how to deal with the situation. Unlike the [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire later example]], he didn't even need a wand to make his voice heard.

** Dumbledore quiets the hall down differently in the book. While he does use his wand, he instead summons purple firecrackers with it.

* In the book, Ron winning the chess game will trying to avoid three specific pieces was epic enough. In the movie, however, he loses a pawn beforehand just to check what'd happen, giving him an even greater disadvantage, but he still wins.

* Hagrid righteously terrorizing the Dursleys after he finds out that they've been lying to Harry for over a decade is one of the most satisfying things ever after the continuous abuse Harry's been put through.
