* Hermione slapping Draco in the face. Little twerp had it coming...
** And then driving Draco (who, remember, never hesitates to toss a taunt or racial slur her way) into full retreat by merely ''pulling out her wand.'' It suddenly occurred to him that he's just pushed the most talented witch in the school one inch too far.
* Ron has had his leg broken by a deranged murderer (he is led to believe) and can basically be defeated by a stiff wind. So he tells that same murderer, while standing on said broken leg, probably through excruciating pain, placing himself between them, if he wants Harry, he'll have to [[GoThroughMe go through him.]] Creator/SteveKloves can be safely ignored on this front: Ron is Harry's man, through and through.
** An easily missed example of this is when the Grim, [[spoiler:really Sirius,]]attacks Harry, Ron, and Hermione [[spoiler:to get at Pettigrew]]. Out of the three, Ron has been the most superstitious about the Grim throughout the whole book. So what does he do when he sees a massive dog that looks like a Grim attack Harry? He instantly gets to his feet and pushes Harry out of the way, letting the Grim take him instead.

* [[KidsAreCruel Boy scouts]] [[TheBully they weren't,]] but the Marauders - a bunch of teenagers not much older than Harry and his friends were at the time of this book - not only learned the highly advanced process of becoming Animagi ([[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming for the sake of a friend]], but also created a detailed map of the near ''entirety'' of Hogwarts Castle that is also capable of tracking the location of any student that sets foot there. It's stated to work well enough that Harry can use it nearly twenty years after its creation... [[spoiler: and implied to still work just as well after nearly ''another'' quarter-century, at which point WordOfGod says Harry's son (fittingly named for two of the Marauders) takes the map for himself.]] The fact that they innovated such a powerful magical artifact at probably around '''16 years old''' speaks to some ''great'' talent.

* Snape gets one he never got in the books. Runs out of the Whomping Willow, sees a werewolf about to eat them, and his first gut response is to stand between the kids and the wolf. Not bad, Snape, not bad at all.
** His getting Remus sacked the next morning [[FridgeBrilliance doesn't seem that spiteful]] when you consider this scene: it no doubt reminds him of what happened when ''he'' was at Hogwarts, and all he's thinking is "there go the bloody Marauders, [[JerkassHasAPoint putting students in danger again]]."

* A Meta example: the extremely minor scene when [=MacNair=], the executioner, eerily grins at Harry when he passes by. ''Goblet of Fire'' reveals [=MacNair=] to be a Death Eater, adding a new level of depth to the tiny, otherwise inconsequential scene. While [=MacNair=] never does anything else in the series notable besides preside over Buckbeak's execution, it's a very coy, ShownTheirWork type of {{Foreshadowing}} that must be given credit, and may have been unintentional!

* Another Meta example: ''Prisoner of Azkaban'' is the second highest-rated film in the franchise according to both Rotten Tomatoes (92%) and Metacritic (81%). It's almost even with the number one spot: ''Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2'' (RT 96%, MC 87%).

* Snape calls Hermione "an insufferable little know-it-all" when she answers a question out of turn. Harry acknowledges [[HypocriticalHumor almost everyone in the class thinks Hermione is indeed a know-it-all]], [[JerkAss Snape was totally out of line for calling her that]]. Ron gets detention for calling him out on it, but it's the principal of the thing.

* Harry's flight on Buckbeak. Especially the moment when they're flying over a lake and Harry sits up, spreads his arms out, and whoops in joy!

* Harry's flight on Buckbeak. Especially the moment when they're flying over a lake and Harry sits up, spreads his arms out, and whoops in joy!joy! Particularly since in the book Harry doesn't enjoy the flight (which is depicted as short, stilted and awkward) at all. It's nice to see him having a chance for a bit of fun.
