* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: InUniverse with Mr Black. Everyone thinks that Mr Black is a {{Badass}} OlderThanDirt wizard who has a very twisted sense of humour and thus likes to play "pranks" on the Law Enforcement officers he meets, such as dropping Death Eaters into a cell while he is being given a tour, and also uses ObfuscatingStupidity to deal with [=LEOs=] that are shadowing him. Actually, Mr Black (Harry) is just as surprised as them whenever Death Eaters appear next to him in increasingly weird situations and does not even know people are tailing him at all.
