Second Task of the Triwizard Tournament and Tournament, Gabrielle is placed in the lake as the person Fleur would miss most. Fleur is not able to reach her, so Harry Potter brings her to the surface alongside Ron. This gains Harry extra points for "moral fiber."

* ActionGirl: Hagrid describes her as not afraid to get into action during their mission to recruit the giant clans, and that she saved his life when he was attacked by the giants under [[TheUsurper Golgomath's]] command.
* AdaptedOut: Inverted. She makes a cameo at Fleur's wedding in the seventh movie despite not being mentioned as present there in the book. Given that she's the headmistress of Fleur's school, her being invited makes perfect sense. She is quite possibly the only character in the series who makes an appearance in any one of the films who was ''not'' in the corresponding book.

* IgnoreTheDisability: She does ''not'' take kindly to people mentioning her half-giant heritage. (Not even other half-giants!)
* LargeAndInCharge: What else can you call a half-giantess in charge of an esteemed magic school?

[[folder:The Sorting Hat]]
[[quoteright:275:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_sortinghat.png]]
-->'''Appears in:''' ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone Philosopher’s Stone]]'' | ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets Chamber of Secrets]]'' | ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban Prisoner of Azkaban]]'' | ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'' | ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Order of the Phoenix]]'' | ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]'' | ''[[Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild Cursed Child]]''
-->'''Portrayed by:''' Leslie Phillips (films), Chris Jarman (''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'', first West End run)

->''"Hmm, difficult. VERY difficult. Plenty of courage, I see. Not a bad mind, either. There's talent, oh yes. And a thirst to prove yourself. But where to put you?"''

The Sorting Hat is a wizard's hat, formerly belonging to Godric Gryffindor, that has been empowered with the intelligence from the four founders of Hogwarts (Gryffindor, Rowena Ravenclaw, Helga Hufflepuff, and Salazar Slytherin). It is sentient, converses with students who place it on their head, composes and recites songs, and can attack things by blinding them. So, despite being just a hat, it certainly is a character.
----
* AnimateInanimateObject: Apparently outfitted with the personalities of all four founders of Hogwarts.
* DeadpanSnarker: In the books, he slyly repeats "You would have done well in Slytherin" to Harry. In the films, they add a "raised eyebrow" when Harry insists the Sorting Hat is wrong.
* ExpositoryThemeTune: The Sorting Hat sings one to the Hogwarts students at the beginning of Fall Term, describing the Four Houses and what they value, and occasionally giving warnings.
* HammerSpace: Gryffindor students can pull Godric's sword out of the Sorting Hat. As the Hat himself sings, he once belonged to Gryffindor himself and sat upon his head.
* HumanityEnsues: In ''Cursed Child'', he is portrayed by a human actor [[EnforcedTrope since making an expensive talking animatronic hat for a character that appears in just a few scenes would be incredibly wasteful]].
* LargeHam: He bombastically shouts the decided house for every student, but his ham value is greatly increased for the films, where he voices loudly his reflexions about every choice instead of whispering them to the sortee's ear.
* MrExposition: He loosely exposits the backstory of the founding of Hogwarts in song at the beginning term feast every year.
* {{Telepathy}}: The Sorting Hat uses Legilimency to determine which house to place new students in.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The last we see of the hat, he is [[spoiler:on fire and screaming as Neville pulls the sword of Gryffindor out of him during the Battle of Hogwarts.]] We can assume that [[spoiler:he was repaired somehow, since Harry tells his son that the Sorting Hat will take his choice into account]].
