* BadAss: Most of the main cast. Particular marks to Jack, who easily holds off Bellatrix with only SuperReflexes and 3rd year spells for 5 minutes, allowing Sirius to snipe her with a stunner. Moody notes admiringly that he has serious combat experience and that it took 12 top Aurors to take her down last time.

* BadFuture: Jack's boggart represents his worst possible future self.
** [[spoiler: One of these is caused by Jack's manipulation of events to ensure that Harry doesn't die, meaning that Voldemort still has his last horcrux.]]



* BlackComedy: Team Torchwood are prone to this, particularly Ianto.
** [[spoiler: While it is kind of horrifying that in the BadFuture Harry was killed, chopped up and buried in different places all over the country to preserve his utility as a Horcrux, it's also kind of funny that the locations were apparently chosen by throwing darts at a map.]]



** Voldemort becomes this [[spoiler: in the ForWantOfANail BadFuture, after returning from the dead for the second time, creating new horcruxes, dropping one in the Marianas Trench and sticking the other on a satellite headed for Mars, while chopping Harry up - in other words, maintaining his utility as a horcrux and burying him in random locations across the country.]]



* ManipulativeBastard: Jack again. Witness how he plays the Wizarding World like a harp over Malfoy's death (and making it happen) until one of the DA proves to be the spanner in the works, in which some XanatosSpeedChess follows. Also note how he draws Draco and Harry to him and gets them to work together.

** The latest WibbleyWobbleyTimeyWimeyBall has this effect as well, in and out of universe.

* SoulJar: Voldemort's horcruxes. [[spoiler: John Hart has at least one and created one for Jack.]]



* TeamDad: Jack. Really obvious when he sets up Harry and Ginny.

--> She didn't even try to resist. In fact...she was crying. It might almost seem sad, if it weren't for the fact that she so deservedly brought this fate upon herself.

****This would make Draco's interest in Jack an IfItsYouItsOkay situation, not a BiTheWay.
