* BigBrotherBully: In their worst moments. Hermione doesn't think it's a coincidence that Ron's Quidditch performance improves after they leave. Ginny isn't spared, either--one of the things she writes in her diary about is how her brothers tease her at school.



** Also to Harry, sticking up for him when he's being called a liar about Voldemort's return and cheering him up when everyone else believes he's the Heir of Slytherin. And getting revenge for him by tricking his bully of a cousin into eating a Ton-Tongue Toffee.
-->'''Mr. Weasley:''' It isn't funny! That sort of behavior seriously undermines wizard-Muggle relations! I spend half my life campaigning against the mistreatment of Muggles, and my own sons--
-->'''Fred:''' We didn't give it to him because he's a Muggle!
-->'''George:''' No, we gave it to him because he's a great bullying git. Isn't he, Harry?



* ProfessorGuineaPig: While developing several of the Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes products, including [[PlayingSick the Skiving Snackboxes]], they tested the effects on themselves--and a few volunteer first-years, to Hermione's chagrin.



--> "Ours [gnomes] do know a lot of excellent swear words," said Ron, "but I think Fred and George taught them those.

* OneTrueLove: Harry Potter is the love of her life. While her affections for him started as hero worship, only bolstered by him saving her from Tom Riddle in the Chamber of Secrets, her affections became more genuine as they got to know each other as people. Eventually, Harry and her fell deeply in love with one another, and she became the brightest spot in his life.

* BigBrotherInstinct: They used to pick on Ron at school and at home, but they loved him regardless of their treatment towards him. They didn't hesitate to try attacking Malfoy when he insulted their younger brother. Later, they're seen tag-team comforting a first year who suffered a punishment from Umbridge.

* BookDumb: They only manage to pass three [=OWLs=] apiece, whereas all their brothers each managed more than both of them combined. In the first book Ron mentions that they got good grades despite being pranksters, so it's likely that by their fifth year they became BrilliantButLazy.
** They did develop a booming business based on very complex developments they worked on by themselves, so it could be shown that [[ObfuscatingStupidity they were clever but din't care for education much.]]

BrilliantButLazy. They did develop a booming business based on very complex developments they worked on by themselves, so it could be shown that [[ObfuscatingStupidity [[BrilliantButLazy they were clever but din't care for education much.]]



* BrilliantButLazy: Despite being BookDumb, they managed to invent Weasley's Wizard Wheezes and made a decent bit of cash off of it. They simply no longer cared about school by the time of the OWL examinations and were busy crafting their products. Ron mentions that their grades were usually very good before then.

* HiddenDepths: There are actual consistent slight differences between the two of them if you look closely. Fred tends to be the main instigator and ringleader. Meanwhile George is only ''slightly'' more serious and has just a ''teeny-bit'' more moral restraint (for example, in the 4th book, he was actually skeptical, if not, a bit hesitant about blackmailing Ludo Bagman unlike Fred who was pretty hot-headed about it and wanted to just rush in without a thought) -- [[spoiler: with the exception of the incident in the fifth book where he and Harry go apeshit and beat Malfoy up, who mocked their families in a way that really pushed their buttons; but then again, Fred would've joined in if he wasn't being physically restrained by their three female Quidditch team mates whereas Harry alone was restraining George until Malfoy pushed him over the edge]].
** George is also slightly kinder. While Fred takes the lead in instigating mayhem, George is the one who offers to help Harry with his cart, starts the speech as they give him the Marauder's Map. Fred is always right on the same page with him, but George is the one who starts their nicer moments.

* IneptMage: In the films, his class projects catching fire or exploding in his face is a RunningGag. This gag was taken from Neville's ineptitude in the books.

* [[AdaptationalNiceGuy Adaptational Nice Girl]]: Much like [=McLaggen=], she's toned down a little bit in the films. Although she ''does'' send Harry the chocolates, she's not quite as [[AlphaBitch bitchy]], and doesn't do much more than make eyes at Harry, who actually shows a fleeting interest before Hermione [[DopeSlap knocks some sense back into him.]]

* LesCollaborateurs: More Slytherins supported Umbridge than anyone else did -- though, like Voldemort's case, Umbridge may simply have focused on recruiting followers from her own house.
** According to Voldemort, a sizable number of Slytherins joined his army in attacking Hogwarts. The rest left with Slughorn and gathered reinforcements from across Britain in support of Harry.

* {{Flanderization}}: It's likely that Slytherin suffered an internalized version of this as a result of Voldemort's rise to power. The only major Slytherin free of interest in the Dark Arts and Blood Purity is Horace Slughorn, who comes from an earlier generation than Voldemort. Basically, Voldemort's obsession with being the Heir of Slytherin and the fact that he recruited Death Eaters from his own house and then their children after them, essentially cast a large blot on their legacy, making people believe that their extreme aspects were their core ideas.

** Then again, Slytherin gets a bad rap because of residents like [[JerkAss Malfoy]] and [[BigBad Voldemort]] so they could have been determined to prove their loyalty to Hogwarts by defending the school and break the image jerkasses have set, which leads to a more positive aspect of an ambition to not be like them.



* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: The NeutralNoLonger / GondorCallsForAid. It would be great if we actually got to ''[[InformedAttribute see]]'' that happen instead it's just a vague "[[DeusExMachina Hey look! Reinforcements!]]" moment and then WordOfGod confirms in an interview that [[AWizardDidIt the Slytherins did it]].
** Probably proving that they were tired of having [[JerkAss Malfoy]] and [[BigBad Voldemort]] being the ones as attempted UrExample and they were not exactly like them.

** FridgeBrilliance: Since Cho had been going through her emotional upheaval about Cedric, the GirlPosse who hung around her in Book 4 had disappeared. Marietta was the only one left.



* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Do not anger the Hufflepuffs. Proof positive -- the Hufflepuff common room door is the only one guarded by a non-verbal password, and if you get it wrong, the door squirts vinegar all over the offender.
** In point of fact, the Hufflepuff door has had the same password forever--it doesn't change like the others. It's also the only common room not entered by non-Hufflepuffs in the last '''thousand years.'''

* InformedAttribute: We're informed in both the book and film of ''Chamber of Secrets'' that she's rather talkative (especially about Harry as of late), only for her to turn out to be a ShrinkingViolet at the sight of him. This becomes less informed as she starts relaxing around Harry over the course of the next few books.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Early in the books, he was TheDitz and MommasBoy and was frequently picked on because of these traits. However, by ''Order of the Phoenix'' his testosterone levels skyrocketed and he TookALevelInBadass, becoming a capable wizard in the process.

She has him completely under her thumb, but while that is played for laughs, he eventually gains courage and his grandmother's pride of him during the Grand Finale.



* WorthyOpponent: In a culmination of his Badass credentials, Voldemort himself considers him this in the climax of the last battle and even gives him a WeCanRuleTogether speech.
