* BerserkButton: Neville's is someone making jokes about his parents. Draco Malfoy certainly did not expect to get pummelled by the once shy Gryffindor.

* ClockRoaches: The "agent-in-place", who is working behind the scenes to ensure that certain things happen as they did in the original timeline. We have yet to find out why he is doing this or how he knows what the original timeline was like.



** {{Enforced}}: There is a character, known only as "the agent-in-place" who is working behind the scenes to ensure that certain things happen as they did in the original timeline. We so far have no clue why.

** Turns out that there is an "agent-in-place" who acts to ensure that these events happen no matter what, though Harry has yet to discover this.

** [[spoiler:Almost certainly a literal example in the glock. It's an enchanted gun that Harry picks up fairly early in the story, and is referenced enough times that the only way it's not a Chekhov's Gun is if it's a RedHerring.]]

** Vernon. While the original version was undeniably a {{Jerkass}} of the highest proportion, here he winds up beating Harry half to death, then leaving him in his room. [[spoiler:Some of this is implied to be the result of mind-charms, but still..]]

* AntiVillain: Dumbledore. In a refreshing twist, the Big D isn't portrayed as a Machiavellian Chessmaster or a cacklingly evil MagnificentBastard, but as a fundamentally good person with the unfortunate flaw of thinking he knows what's best for people. He's not even a villain, really, more like a hero who could [[NiceJobBreakingItHero really mess things up if he tries to do what he believes is the right thing]]. Now Snape, on the other hand...

* BatmanGambit: the Gryffindor Six run one to capture Barty Crouch Jr, and it works, masterfully.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: downplayed with Ron. When he was younger, he might have wanted to surpass his brothers in something good, but time spent with Harry slowly eroded that. [[spoiler:He realizes it's all not cracked up when he becomes besieged by others following his killing of a Dementor with the Sword of Gryffindor.]]

* ChekhovsGun / DreamingOfThingsToCome: Chapter 29's reference [[spoiler:to a magical core exploding]] in nightmare form is ominous in the extreme. The accuracy of Harry's previous nightmares doesn't help either.

* GoneHorriblyWrong: Dumbledore has a moment of this; after Harry makes it clear to him how much he hates being at the Dursleys, he "takes measures to ensure Harry's safety." Whatever magic he worked on the Dursleys has the precise opposite effect, resulting in Vernon beating Harry almost to death and leaving him to die in his room.



* LuminescentBlush: pretty much all of the Gryffindor Six pass this at one point of another.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Dumbledore under the Gone Horribly Wrong example above.



* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: Harry is very adamant about certain people being bad and/or wrong, and is quickly able to sway people into thinking along the same lines as himself. Understandable when it comes to someone like Professor Snape, since he's both a suspicious and deeply unlikable man, but not so much when it comes to [[spoiler: Professor Dumbledore. Harry only has to throw out a few snotty rants and adults who have known him for all of a couple of years are suddenly ready to take his side over Dumbledore's, who they've known and fought alongside for ''decades''.]]
** Only after the man tried to send Harry back to the family that nearly beat him to death causing people to question his judgement.

* RightBehindMe: In Chapter 25, Draco really should have known better than to call Professor [=McGonagall=] an "old hag" in the middle of a meeting of the club she sponsored.

* UnwittingPawn: surprisingly, Snape becomes one for Draco (and, by proxy, Lucius) Malfoy. Snape unfairly punishes Harry so that Draco will be able to attack him from the back and sneak into Gryffindor Tower to steal Tom Riddle's Diary (which Malfoy sends to Ginny anonymously, saying Harry bought it for her) and Harry's Invisibility Cloak, which was the purported objective of the attack.

When Snape gets wind of it, he's upset enough that he doesn't raise a word of objection towards [[spoiler:Draco's expulsion]].

* FinishingEachOthersSentences: Fred and George do this constantly in the earlier chapters. It's hard to find a line that they don't split. Around year three, they turn to something more like collaborative interrupting, [OriginalFlavor like the twins do in the books].
