** The theory that the phrase "abracadabra" came from "Avada Kedavra" is unlikely as the Killing Curse was invented in the Early Middle Ages (6th-10th century A.D.) and the earliest known use of the phrase "abracadabra" is from the 3rd century A.D. If anything the incantation for the Killing Curse is a bastardization of the Muggle phrase.

** It's not uncommon for those of high rank to be members of the Wizengamot, and for the good guys to engage in power games with Lucius Malfoy. In canon, it's not clear how members are selected, nor does Lucius even (as far as we know) even ''have'' a seat on the Wizengamot-in fact, we know that he wasn't a member as of Harry's fifth year.

* "Magical Cores", which are basically power levels, show up in about ninety percent of HP fanfiction and only there, there is not the slightest hint in canon at anything like that.

** This also tends to be linked to the fanon that cores or magical abilities can be "suppressed" in some way, usually to justify Harry and/or Hermione becoming even more powerful and have noncanon abilities. . Sometimes this is also the case with Neville, to explain why he's so incompetent (because of course it can't just be that he was a kid who wasn't great at magic and needed a little extra training to get better). Almost always, the suppression is revealed to be done by [[RonTheDeathEater Dumbledore, for some unexplained, vaguely sinister reason]]. Usually, its to make whomever's magic is being suppressed to be reliant on Dumbledore's protection, guidance etc, and therefore a more compliant pawn.

* If you do the math, it seems that Charlie and Tonks were in the same Hogwarts year. From that developed the idea that they were very close--possibly even childhood friends--who eventually [[AmicableExes dated before deciding they were]] BetterAsFriends. Often Tonks has some AffectionateNickname for him. You'd think this would've be brought up in the gang's conversation about Tonks joining the family in ''Phoenix.'' Interestingly, this usually isn't used to break up the ship between Remus and Tonks, but more for background for those two characters.

* There's also "Ancient and Noble Houses", and their magical Lord rings. The only time a character talks about them, it's Sirius Black referring to his family, and he was mocking their pureblood ideals.

* It may have been Grindlewald's phrase, but many assume that Dumbledore, particularly his bashed form, works to obtain his own 'Greater Good'.
** Some of it probably stems from the seventh book showing Dumbledore agreeing with Grindlewald in a letter that working for the Greater Good is the best way to go. That aside, having act like he still wants to control the wizarding world ignores the fact that Dumbledore explicitly states that after his sister died, he decided that it was far too dangerous for him to be trusted with power and avoided it (hence his refusal to be Minister of Magic).

* 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.

to:

* 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.
