* This troper has seen many fics involving a "wand holster," which Harry (and possibly his friends) might get, or else "dueling wands" with a certain amount of pre-loaded spells. Neither of these is so much as implied to exist in canon.

* It's considered {{canon}} by many fans that there was [[GreatOffscreenWar a war between Wizards and Muggles at some point before the series began]], and that said war is the reason why Wizards and Muggles live separately from each other. A common observation is that the infamous Killing Curse "''Avada Kedavra''" sounds suspiciously like ''"abracadabra"'', the phrase that young Muggles always say when pretending to do magic in jest--possibly suggesting that Muggles were once frequent victims of the Killing Curse, and that cautionary stories about it were passed down through the generations until the bastardized phrase became ingrained in the popular Muggle lexicon. The one point of disagreement, however, is on which side won: fans in the "Wizards won" camp point out that Wizards are a thriving community with complete autonomy from Muggles, which they presumably wouldn't have if they'd been defeated; fans in the "Muggles won" camp point out that the Wizarding government is called "the '''Ministry''' of Magic", and that it's apparently a Ministry in the British government rather than a government in its own right (possibly suggesting that it was conquered by Muggles and given autonomy after the fact).

* Ironically, their father is likely the (former, as he's balding) blond one as Dorea Black, their father's paternal aunt, is blond, meaning it runs in the family.

** One that this troper has seen several times is that they lose their wealth due to an ancestor backing out of a marriage and the jilted woman's family demand monetary consolation in return.



* At times, people in fanfiction depict the dislike of minorities, like Indians and East Asians. This has no merit, seeing as Cho Chang was shown to be very popular.

*** ''One'' known male part-Veela (1/8th to be precise!) does exist in canon; Louis Weasley, Fleur's son with Bill -- though whether he has the good looks of the veela is unknown.

** Occasionally, the fanon says that Neville's magic is (unintentionally) suppressed by a massive Obliviation charm placed on him to make him forget the torture of his parents. It's so powerful that it makes his memory bad... so he's unable to do magic well as he can never ''remember'' the magic because the Obliviation spell keeps erasing it in case any of it inadvertently triggers memories of his parents torturing.

* In the first and third books, Gryffindor gets House Cup points for its Quidditch performance. This has lead to the common assumption that a House's Quidditch points (10 points for scoring a goal, 150 for catching the GoldenSnitch) are simply added to the House points (5 points for answering a question right, etc), but the books contradict this- in ''Chamber of Secrets'' Gryffindor earns only 50 points for winning its first match, and if this were the case they'd have to earn at least 150 for winning. ''Prisoner of Azkaban'' offers some evidence that it's the margin of victory that matters, since in this one it's not enough to just win the game, Harry has to wait until his team is in the lead by a specific margin, and it sounds like the win of the cup also secured the house cup for Gryffindor.



** Also popular is the theory that she was a champion Quidditch player (usually Beater or Chaser), that she was a notorious prankster (or a notorious IceQueen bookworm, or sometimes, if the author is feeling clever, a notorious IceQueen who was secretly the forerunner to the Weasley twins), and that she was best friends with Pomfrey and Sprout. [[spoiler:Pottermore confirms that she was indeed a Chaser.]]
