* TheBully: Towards Severus Snape and a few other unnamed students he also hexed for fun. He stopped bullying for the most part in his later years at Hogwarts but Severus remained his "special case" up until graduation.

* LikeFatherLikeSon: Like his father, Harry's a great Quidditch Player, a tireless fighter against the Dark Arts and a true friend, as well as a determined rule breaker who loves to explore the school grounds. However, unlike his father, Harry was on the receiving end of bullying in his childhood and shakes off the MoralMyopia that led his father to bully Snape.

* {{Troll}}: Ensured that the Marauder's Map would have a special in-built nasty insult in case Snape ever tried to read it. This endured even years after his death.

* WartsAndAll: After spending many books with a very idealized view of his parents, Harry's shocked to find out that James Potter was a bit of a bully and a snob on campus, so much so that he gets a lot of angst about whether or not ''everything'' he'd thought about his father was a lie. Eventually, though, he realizes the truth: James Potter was a good man and a good husband who had his faults and flaws, just like everyone else, and Snape's demonized memories of him are no more accurate to the real person he was than Harry's idealized vision of the father he never knew.

* AllLovingHeroine: Apparently, [[MagneticHero Harry]] inherited this trait from her. Her relationship with [[spoiler:her former friend, Snape]] is a good example: [[spoiler:she, the most popular, beautiful, talented girl in school, arguably an AlphaBitch, favorite of Slughorn who is known to "collect" influential students, was best friends with the poor, ugly, hot-tempered boy from her rival House. Yes, she eventually [[FeudEpisode breaks up with him]], but it's after years of watching him turn into a horrible person under the influence of Slytherin's junior Death Eaters, culminating in him calling her an unforgivable slur -- and it obviously breaks her heart to do it.]]

** This is actually a problem since he looks at Harry as a ReplacementGoldfish for his father who Harry never knew and largely sends mixed signals, sometimes serving as a ParentalSubstitute and other times trying to pretend that he's still at Hogwarts with James.

*** The Potter and Malfoy families in general are this. The Potters started with an eccentric wizard who acted as a village healer for Muggles, and his family eventually founded an apothecary that created healing potions like Skele-Gro, becoming wealthy through their ingenuity and their desire to help others. During WWI, Henry Potter was a member of the Wizengamot who decried the Minister of Magic's decision not to assist the Muggle government, and the family had a reputation as being extremely pro-Muggle. The Malfoys started as Anglo-Norman noblemen who followed William the Conqueror, and Armand Malfoy gained a shady reputation for being one of the King's enforcers. They're also filthy rich, but it's from being evil aristocrats, and they have always supported stridently anti-Muggle policies. Consequently, while the Potters are excluded from a registry that identifies the most ancient and prestigious pure-blood families, for their politics, the Malfoys are included, and are emblematic of pure-blooded wizards.

* BlueBlood: The Potter family stretches back centuries, and since the marriage of Hardwin Potter to Iolanthe Peverell, included the line of Ignotus Peverell in its lineage. The only reason that the family isn't included in the list of oldest, purest pure-blood families called the "Sacred Twenty-Eight" is because the Potters were and are ''strongly'' pro-Muggle rights.

(In reality, "Potter" was a corruption of [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname "Potterer"]], a nickname given to one of the family's ancestors by his Muggle neighbors due to his [[ObfuscatingStupidity appearance]] as a doddering old man who cared about little other than working in his garden--[[BunnyEarsLawyer though they respected the efficacy of his herbal remedies]], not knowing that they were actually magical potions.)

* ParentalSubstitute: Not much attention is drawn to it, but she's actually the first person ''ever'' to treat Harry as [[IJustWantToBeNormal just a normal child]]. For someone who's either been TheUnfavorite or (more recently) a LivingLegend to ''everyone he meets'', that's got to mean a lot.
* ParentsAsPeople: It's implied that Ginny sometimes feels pressured by being the only daughter, since Molly desperately wanted to raise a little girl among all of her boys. Her resources are strained with such a large family, and Ron seems to feel particularly overlooked, between the twins and Ginny. Mrs. Weasley adopts Harry nearly as a surrogate son, but this means that she can unintentionally favor him (even over Ron) or be shortsighted as to his best interest.
