* ObviouslyEvil: Absolutely no-one who is with the Death Eaters seems like they would fit in anywhere else. You have the guy with a snake face, the grovelling servant, the AxCrazy witch, the sneering rich [[BlondesAreEvil blonde]], and the guy who likes screaming and flailing his tongue around.

* DarkerAndEdgier: The later films got increasingly darker both in terms of the subject matter and the cinematography. The first two films was full of warm golds and reds, while the later films favours cold blues and ''[[Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]'' is almost black and white. To further hammer this fact in, "Hedwig's Theme", which introduces each film, sounds slightly more eerie, shriller and more discordant in each consecutive film (the 4th movie shifted the theme to a minor key, and there it stayed for the rest of the franchise; in ''Deathly Hallows'', the intro theme is drowned out halfway through by a reptilian screech). But after Voldemort was defeated in the last film, the vivid colours of the first movies return.

Added DiffLines:

* BeamOWar: Multiple times during the films, despite the first one being the only instance that made sense in-universe. Then again, the films never actually explain what ''priori incantatem'' is, so as far as the audience is concerned it's basically a magical [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience color-coded]] version of arm-wrestling.

*** The scene where Hermione is tortured by Bellatrix Lestrange. It happens offscreen in the book, but you get to see plenty of it in the film adaptation, [[RapeIsaSpecialKindofEvil and it strongly ressembles rape]].

** Rupert Grint had a trademark grimace he used often in the first two films. Then his acting abilities matured and we didn't see it. However in the scene in movie 8 when he's yelling at Harry and Hermione to run from the feindfyre he's making that face.

* ArcNumber: When ''Prizoner of Azkaban'' came out, Rowling said she was surprised at a few parts of the film which unknowingly foreshadowed future books. In retrospect, one was staring us in the face - POA established player numbers in quiddich, and Harry's was 7. [[spoiler: We wouldn't be learning about horcruxes until the book of ''Half Blood Prince'' came out year after the film of Prisoner came out, and another three years until we learned that Harry was the seventh horcrux.]] So while it wasn't really an arc number in the books, it was in the films.

* LecherousLicking: Barty Crouch Jr. definitely seems to idolise Voldemort a bit too much. It's taken to the extreme ''Goblet of Fire'', when Barty actually wipes blood off Harry's arm, saying that his blood now runs within the Dark Lord, before appearing to lick it off his finger.

Starting in 2001 and finishing in 2011, each of the seven main ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books was [[TheFilmOfTheBook put to film]]. The films star Creator/DanielRadcliffe as Harry Potter, RupertGrint as Ron Weasley, and Creator/EmmaWatson as Hermione Granger. The entire series (which has taken a higher aggregate box-office gross than any other series in the same medium) spans eight movies; the seventh book, ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]'', was split into two separate films in an attempt to encompass as much of the final book's content as possible (in contrast [[CompressedAdaptation to the rushed scenes]] of the largest book, ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'', for example).
