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

Added DiffLines:

* BadassGrandma: She's old enough to be Harry's great-grandmother. She's also one of the few characters able to fight against Voldemort for any length of time; even with help (she was fighting alongside Shacklebolt and Slughorn, both of whom are extremely powerful wizards themselves), the fact that the three don't die in all of five seconds speak worlds of their power.

** [[spoiler: When Voldemort heard that Draco was lowering his wand, Snape lies to him and stresses that Draco got the Death Eaters into Hogwarts, cornered and disarmed Dumbeldore]].

* FreudianExcuse: As revealed on ''Pottermore'', Lockhart was a SpoiledBrat as a child, partly because he was also the only one of his siblings to be capable of magic. He came to Hogwarts expecting similar treatment and was disappointed to find he was treated as just another student.



* IneptMage: He's not very good at anything except memory charms -- he even elects to just spout nonsensical gibberish when he can't think of a real spell to subdue the pixies he set free in his classroom.

* IneptMage: He's not very good at anything except memory charms -- he even elects to just spout nonsensical gibberish when he can't think of a real spell to subdue the pixies he set free in his classroom. ''Pottermore'' argues that Lockhart actually had the potential to be an above-average wizard, but he was more interested in gaining fame and attention than doing actual work.

* RegretfulTraitor: [[spoiler:He regrets having betrayed the Potters to Voldemort, but only for selfish reasons, as he regrets putting Lily in danger, and ultimately, being partially responsible for her death.]]



*** This could be tied to MoralMyopia and maybe even ItsAllAboutMe. He hates James and Sirius for damaging his pride, but sees nothing wrong with pushing around others.



* UngratefulBastard: From Harry's point of view, Snape trash-talking his father is unfair because James saved his life when they were in school. [[spoiler:This is also the opinion of Lily when they were at Hogwarts, who calls him out for equating the Marauders rule-breaking with his Death Eater friends' hideous actions]]. Despite the opinions of Dumbledore, Lupin and Sirius, Snape refuses to acknowledge any altruism on James' part, mostly because this EmbarrassingRescue changed nothing in their feud, and likewise did not stop Snape [[spoiler:from instigating James' death or asking Voldemort to spare him as well as Lily]].

** Snape once gave a LifeIsNotFair speech to Harry about him and Sirius Black and calling them out on their moping, even blaming James. This coming from a man who's driven by pettiness and spite as a result of his bad home life and led to inflicting misery on himself.



* JerkassHasAPoint: He's thoroughly wrong for pushing Harry's RelativeButton and reviving a long dead grudge against a man who is dead ([[spoiler:whose death moreover, Snape played a part in instigating]]) and being unnecessarily antagonistic to Remus Lupin and Sirius Black but he does have a point, as Harry realizes, that James Potter, [[KnightInShiningArmor among]] [[TheAce other]] [[GoodParents things]] was an arrogant show-off and not entirely as spotless as his posthumous reputation allows.

** This was even from his youth. Despite being angry at having his pride torn regarding his encounters with the Maruders, he sees no problems with the more malevolent actions his friends (the future Death Eaters) would do.

** This could tie in to ItsAllAboutMe and his InsufferableGenius tendencies. Despite calling James out for a lot of things such as being arrogant and reckless, he himself acts much the same way, if not ''worse.'' It may also be related to his hypocrisy.

* TheResenter: A large part of his hateship to James Potter is made up of this. He resented him, according to Sirius and Lupin, for being popular and being skilled at Quidditch (a flashback showing Snape being laughed at for his broom skills further suggests this envy). James lived a good life while Snape doesn't and James is just as talented as he is, if not more so. Because Harry is also popular and skilled at Quidditch, Snape immediately and unfairly transfers that resentment to Harry after James's death. [[spoiler: Subverted regarding Lily though. Despite seemingly liks the most eprsoanl reason to resent him, Snape is aware that Lily left him because of his own fault.]]

* YouDontLookLikeYou / EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference: Despite being played by the same actor, Flitwick's appearance dramatically changed between the second and third films, from an older-looking, bald and grey-bearded appearance to a much younger one with black hair and a small mustache (seen above).
