** Not that McGonagall is ugly in the series, mind you. And, in the case of Maggie Smith, it's a case of GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave as Maggie Smith is an attractive woman.

* AdaptationalHeroism: He is ''much'' less of a {{Jerkass}} in the films, which plays down his dubious teaching methods in Potions and hardly shows a single class session with him in detail aside from the introductory scene in the first film.
** Also, his rant at Harry and Ron in the second film, after they crash into the Whomping Willow, comes across as AngerBornOfWorry, whereas in the book he was gloating about their possible expulsion.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Inverted. The book describes his human half as that of a handsome blonde man with striking blue eyes, whereas the movie made him look far more bestial and covered with grey hair.

* DontAsk: She seems to know not to ask. In all her years at Hogwarts she probably has seen a fair share of students with injuries the result of things students shouldn't be doing, but her job is to see to the students' health. Just looking at Ron's dragon bite, there's no way that she bought Ron's story that a dog bit him. (Especially seeing as dogs aren't even a legal pet at Hogwarts.) Also, given her status as a healer, it's very likely she knew Hermione had a mishap with Polyjuice Potion. Could also be a case of [[YouDontWantToKnow I Don't Want To Know.]]
** Justified in that her priority is the health of the students. If she reports their misdeeds then they're less likely to come to her for healing and be at risk of their injuries getting worse or killing them.

* WitchClassic: Similar to dumbledore being a WizardClassic, [=McGonagall=] fits this trope, especially in the film version. She was seen on the Quidditch Plaque in Philosopher's Stone, which meant she must've had skill with a broomstick, not to mention she turns into a cat, and her image is never complete without her hat.

** Though creating Horcruxes is a [[MoralEventHorizon a VERY nasty thing]], so he probably didn't want to learn about it any further.
