Added DiffLines:

* GoneHorriblyRight: [[spoiler: unlike in the original trilogy, Voldemort turned Harry into a Horcrux ''intentionally'', fulling intending to pass on some of his power and intelligence onto him. This results in a Harry that ends up defeating Voldemort (and 30+ Deatheaters) and finding a way around the whole Horcrux thing ''in his first year''.]]

* TooCleverByHalf: When he thinks he has people or a puzzle figured out, he will refuse to update his opinions until forced to do so. All of his major setbacks so far are results of systematically out-thinking himself. It eventually [[spoiler: leads to his defeat]].

He fixes the main mistake his canon version made by manufacturing many more Horcruxes and hiding them better, but takes absolutely no precautions towards somebody defeating him non-lethally (Harry thinks this is part of his insanity)]].

* AdaptationalBadass: Quirrell goes from the one note, incompetent, card-carrying, borderline comical villain of whose background we know virtually nothing in ''The Philosopher's Stone'' into an extremely complex, supremely intelligent, mind blowingly dangerous ''person'' (because he's so complicated, it's hard to call him a full "antagonist"). [[spoiler: Naturally, this also applies to Voldemort, who is less of an AxCrazy genocidal maniac DrunkOnTheDarkSide and much more a TooCleverByHalf ManipulativeBastard ''par excellence''.]]



* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: if you consider his canon character "historical". Quirrell goes from the one note, incompetent, card-carrying, borderline comical villain of whose background we know virtually nothing in ''The Philosopher's Stone'' into an extremely complex, supremely intelligent, mind blowingly dangerous ''person'' (because he's so complicated, it's hard to call him a full "antagonist").

Added DiffLines:

* EvilChancellor: Technically, as General Sunshine's foremost lieutenant.


Added DiffLines:

* MagicKnight: Almost literally at one point, when he dodges Sleeping Hex-resistant armor and wields a Most Ancient [[spoiler:LaserBlade blade.]]


Added DiffLines:

* KungFuWizard: Part of his advanced training [[spoiler:To fight Bellatrix]] involves using kicks when magic isn't an option.

* MultilayerFacade: [[spoiler: Started as Tom Riddle playing both Voldemort and Monroe. By the time of the series he's [[BecomingTheMask fully embraced the Voldemort persona]], and Voldemort is possessing the real Quirrell and dropping hints that he's secretly Monroe in disguise. After his defeat, and Harry arranging the scene, everyone believes Monroe, pretending to be Quirrell, died heroically fighting Voldemort.]]

* CrazyPrepared: Do to Harry's extensive Science Fiction knowledge he already has general strategies for the exotic scenarios worked out. Lampshaded in the Lake battle, where it blows Malfoy's mind that the Chaos Legion had a plan for 3D fighting when Harry really just gave the "Why are you all upside down?" speech from EndersGame.

* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: By the end of the fic she's [[spoiler:part troll, and part unicorn, in addition to being brought back from the dead.]]



* GreekChorus: During ''Self-Actualization'', since he's not an active participant in the events of the story he spends most of it correctly guessing how the events around S.P.H.E.W. will end up, when he's not reflecting on how he's the only sane person at Hogwarts.



* PlausibleDeniability: He apparently doesn't have any at all. No matter what he's doing, it is a plot, even if he's genuinely helping.




to:

* OddFriendship: With Neville, after being under Harry's leadership.




to:

* PhraseCatcher: [[spoiler:When dueling Neville, she calls herself "Greengrass of Sunshine." This quickly becomes a popular joke among her classmates.]]



* ResignationsNotAccepted: She attempts to resign late into the year, after [[spoiler:an extremely brutal dressing-down from Harry as to why she isn't responsible for Hermione's death and what she could have to differently]], but Dumbledore refuses to lose faith in her.
