Added DiffLines:

* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: With Harry. This starts in ''Order of the Phoenix'' when Harry is brooding and moody over the aftermath of Cedric's death, almost no one believing him about Voldemort's return, and being terrified over the possibility of Voldemort being able to possess him. Ginny manages to give him some comfort by having him actually talk about his fears, which help him, somewhat. This continues in the next book, when Ginny offers him a comforting shoulder after Professor Dumbledore's death.

* BadassBookworm: It has a tendency to produce these, regardless of what other houses say about the house being DumbMuscle. To wit: [[TheArchmage Albus]] [[CoolOldGuy Dumbledore]], [[TeenGenius Hermione Granger]], [[TheProfessor Minerva]] [[CoolOldLady McGonagall]], and [[FieryRedhead Lily Evans]], [[TheAce James Potter,]] and [[TheProfessor Remus Lupin]] were all talented, studious and intelligent witches and wizards.

* MadeOfExplodium: Whilst not a specific branch of magic, Seamus is very skilled in his ability to conjure or create magic that will have a pyrotechnic effect. This was demonstrated usefully during the Battle of Hogwarts when Professor McGonagall instructed Neville Longbottom and Cho Chang with the help of Seamus to explode the bridge in the Hogwarts grounds.

** JK Rowling realized after ''Order of the Phoenix'' that she had yet to create an actual sympathetic Slytherin character. This led to the creation of Professor Slughorn to add more balance.

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: The only Potter to be sorted into Slytherin, and is introverted and insecure compared to most of his confident siblings and cousins.

* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: In many ways, an inverse of his father. Harry grew up unaware of the wizarding world, was sorted into Gryffindor, and is a popular (most of the time) and talented wizard with great skill on a broom. Albus, by contrast, grew up in the wizarding world with two famous parents, is sorted into Slytherin, and is a bullied IneptMage who's rubbish on a broom.

* HateAtFirstSight: Subverted. Everyone (in and out of universe) expects him to loathe Scorpius on sight, which Rose even invokes. Instead, they become the best of friends almost instantly.

* TheHeart: Of the Malfoy clan, as his kindness and compassion stand out amidst a traditionally cruel and ruthless family. He also acts as the moodier Albus's conscience and moral compass a lot of the time.



* NiceGuy: Sweet, forgiving and relentlessly upbeat despite his rather painful life so far.



* SociallyAwkwardHero: Shy, geeky and prone to babbling when he's nervous which doesn't help him win over other students. (Within a minute of meeting Albus and Rose he manages to stumble over his own name and burst into song). He gains more confidence thanks to his friendship with Albus and the events of the play though.

* OnlyFriend: Mutually with Scorpius, as most Hogwarts student are suspicious of Harry Potter's son being sorted into Slytherin. (Ironically if not for his friendship with Death Eater's son Scorpius, he'd probably be on friendlier terms with his extended family and other Gryffindors, but Albus makes it clear he won't give Scorpius up for anyone).

* InformedAttribute: The Hat of Slytherin house, we are told, is ambition, but with the exceptions of Snape, Malfoy and Tom Riddle, no one we see in Slytherin displays any genuine ambition. Slughorn, the benign TokenGoodTeammate promotes a brand of crony patronage among students and promotes inter-house unity but he's content to be TheManBehindTheMan socialite and AlmightyJanitor (a benign version of Lucius Malfoy's public profile). Slytherins likewise are the house of pureblood elites and defenders of "[[CultureJustifiesAnything wizarding pride]]". Slytherins are supposed to be cunning, witty, and ambitious but most of the canon Slytherins are [[TheBully bullies]] and DumbMuscle, whose idea of intimidation is openly attacking Gryffindor Quidditch players before a game and banking on their Head of House to bail them out. Then again with no ambition to put as hat they are left with racism or being deceptive which aren't values for a school to have.
