* The idea of characters relying on prophecies or acting like prophecies are infallible is very common in fanfics, but it goes against a point made that prophecies do ''not'' have to come true and many don't. Voldemort is the only one who believes his ''has'' to, and he's shown as being very narrow-minded in thinking this. Not to mention, only Voldemort, Dumbledore, Harry, Ron, and Hermione [[spoiler:and, secretly, Snape]] are aware the prophecy exists, which is usually ignored in fanfics where everyone and their mother seems to know Harry is destined as the only one who can kill Voldemort (which itself is more fanon - the prophecy only states that Harry and Voldemort can't coexist, not that one is the only who can kill the other).

** What's funny is that if you read the line in context with the question Rowling was answering ("How much does the fact that voldemort was conceived under a love potion have to do with his nonability to understand love is it more symbolic?"), you realize that in saying this, Rowling was outright ''refuting'' the idea that the love potion caused Voldemort's personality. Rowling ''Jossed'' the idea, and got misinterpreted to have confirmed it.

* Some fans have it that everyone in canon, Dumbledore himself included, view Dumbledore as an irrefutable source of wisdom. In actuality, while most people Harry talks to think very highly of Dumbledore, the man himself insists that he is capable of making mistakes and, in fact, that the ones he makes are often the cause of worse consequences than the mistakes of most people. There's also the idea that he deliberately put Harry with the Dursleys to either toughen him up or make him reliant on various other parties and that he set up the meeting with the Weasleys so that Harry would immediately be sympathetic to the "Light" side. [[SarcasmMode Apparently this is easier than just making sure the kid grows up knowing that things like murder and torture on a basis of group supremecy is wrong]. That, and if the Weasleys are ObviouslyEvil (as they often are in those sorts o fanfictions), how they faked a genuinely kind meeting for any length of time, particularly when two of the Weasleys Harry meets are eleven and ten, making it even more unlikely that they'd be able to stage a perfect meeting.

* Since Hermione's parents' names are never mentioned, fanfic writers have instead invented their own. Roger and Helen crop up frequently; [[Creator/DanielRadcliffe Dan]] and [[Creator/EmmaWatson Emma]] were common for a while, but have since dropped in popularity, probably after everyone figured out how cringe-inducingly meta it was. Then there was a wave of Rose and Hugo (since Hermione's just as creative as Harry is) and even a bit of Wendell and Monica (Hermione's probably clever enough not to give her parents their real names as false names).

* Similarly, Percy and Oliver Wood are often paired together or imagined as friends, apparently just because they were in the same year.

* A common theme in "X Reads the Harry Potter books" (and possibly in other types of fics as well) is that Remus has an obsession (or at greatly enjoys) chocolate.
** [[NewerThanTheyThink This probably comes from]] [[Fanfic/TheShoeboxProject The Shoebox Project]], a fic that inspired quite a lot of common Marauder tropes. In it, chocolate is randomly Remus' TrademarkFavoriteFood. Everyone copied it, and it caught on.
** On the other hand, it may simply be that Remus was in possession of a large bar of chocolate during his first appearance in the books.

chocolate. This probably comes from]] [[Fanfic/TheShoeboxProject The Shoebox Project]], may stem from the fact that he was seen carrying an enormous chocolate bar (as a remedy for Dementor encounters) in his first appearance, even though he was never said to have a particular fondness for it.

** Relatedly, there's the popular theory that the snake was actually a captive animagus. This, along with the above theory, seems to have its roots in the common observation that the snake speaks Spanish ("Thanksss, ''amigo''.") instead of Portuguese, despite supposedly being Brazilian.[[note]] Brazil's primary language is Portuguese, not Spanish; and Rowling is definitely fluent in Portuguese, as she lived and worked in Portugal for several years before writing ''Harry Potter''.[[/note]] Both theories are a common way to explain the discrepancy, coming to the conclusion that the snake was of human-like intelligence, and simply trying to pass itself off as a common boa constrictor from Brazil.
