* IKnowYoureWatchingMe: ''[[ContrivedCoincidence Accidentally]]''. In his visit to Netherlands, Harry spends the day visiting museums and admiring art, and at he end of it he compares the masterpieces to Hogwarts' moving paintings, calling the latter's painters "Amateurs". The surveillance agents tailing him take it to mean that ''he knew they were there all along'', and unwittingly start the belief that Mr. Black is an old professional that [[TheOldestTricksInTheBook knows all of the tricks]]. Later incidents, particularly those in France (he gets fed up with having to stand on a line to see anything right when the French Aurors were trying to get into his hotel room), further this belief until everyone thinks he might as well be [[TheOmniscient nigh-omniscient]], having [[OlderThanDirt pretty much written the book before books existed]], and is just [[ObfuscatingStupidity pretending he doesn't know because he's got a twisted sense of humor]].
