The man strongly resembles Snape, [[spoiler: assumed at that point to be]] [[TheDragon Voldemort's right hand]]. No, it's not him, it's the Minister for Magic, Rufus Scrimgeour.

** [[spoiler: Snape]]'s death scene, with Voldemort slashing [[spoiler: Snape]]'s throat open with Sectumsempra then having Nagini {{finish him}}, with blood splattering on the walls.

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: The movie shows a snippet of [[spoiler:Hermione's torture from the book, except instead of just hearing her disembodied screams, we also see Belatrix doing...something with the dagger in her hand to Hermione's arm. When we see her arm, we can see that Lestrange carved "Mudblood" into the inside of Hermione's forearm, much like how the Nazis tattooed numbers into the forearms of the Jews in concentration camps]].

[[folder:Both films]]
* AdaptationExpansion
** In the book, Hermione only told us she wiped her parents' memories. In the film, we get to see her doing it. There is a DeletedScene where Yaxley arrives at the Grangers' house to find it empty.
** The final fight between Harry and Voldemort. In the books, Harry appears from beneath his invisibility cloak in the midst of the battle to deliver a ShutUpHannibal to Voldemort, just before the Dark Lord [[spoiler:tosses a killing curse at him, which backfires horribly. ''Again'']]. In ''Deathly Hallows Part 2'', the fight sprawls the entire breadth of the castle, from Voldemort stalking him in the hallways, battling in the Astronomy Tower, and pulling a FreefallFight before landing in the courtyard, where they engage in a BeamOWar duel which Harry wins when his Expelliarmus reaches Voldy. [[RuleOfCool And yes, it is just as epic as it sounds]].
** To a lesser degree, also [[spoiler:the fight between [[SupportingLeader Neville]] and [[RightHandAttackDog Nagini]]]]. In the book, [[spoiler:Neville decapitates her without resistance from her in a moment of surprise, albeit whilst [[IncendiaryExponent on fire]]]]. In the film, [[spoiler:he decapitates her [[ThwartedCoupDeGrace mid-launch]] [[BigDamnHeroes at a helpless Ron and Hermione]]]]. Yes, [[RuleOfCool also extremely satisfying]].
** We also get to see Ron and Hermione enter [[spoiler:the Chamber of Secrets]], showing a scene only referred to in the books.
** Additionally, we see more of the preparations around Hogwarts for the battle, like Kingsley manning people at the towers to fend off the Death Eaters.
* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: This film can be somewhat confusing as a result of explanations being adapted out of the six films that precede it; examples of this can be found [[AdaptationExplanationExtrication/HarryPotter here]].
* GrandFinale: ''Death Hallows'' is essentially one film with twice the running time that sees nearly every character return for the final battle between Voldemort and Harry as the world of the past six movies is forever changed.

* AdaptationExplanationExtrication:
** Remus and Tonks in a blink-and-you-miss-it scene where Tonks is apparently about to announce her pregnancy too, but is interrupted. Their relationship is not mentioned again, until [[spoiler: the Resurrection Stone scene]] in Part 2 when Harry is magically aware of their son Teddy's existence.
** A scene explaining the Taboo (Ron mentions hearing about it in the Ministry) was cut from Deathly Hallows Part 1, so it's never explained despite its effects showing up in two plot-critical moments (the book-verbatim Death Eater attack in the café, and a new change to the Lovegood house scene where Xenophilius says Voldemort's name to summon Death Eaters), making them seem like Diabolus ex Machina rather than a jinx. It also saves the writers some trouble, because through the movies they have been downright spotty about wizards saying Voldemort's name, a feature which was important in the books.
** The reason why Harry doesn't realize Bathilda Bagshot is possessed by Nagini is because he is a Parselmouth snake-talk appears to him as human speech, unlike the gibberish it is to others. In the movie, we hear him and possessed Bathilda talk in Parseltongue from an observer's viewpoint.

* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: The material is re-introduced in several ways in Hallows Part 2: merely knowing that Bellatrix was afraid of what they might have taken from her vault lets him know a Horcrux is there, and once they get inside, Harry's scar gives him a Spider-Sense, letting him track down the object in question (a cup, theoretically Helga Hufflepuff's but maybe anybody's). This same ability allows him to learn that Nagini is a Horcrux, and another is connected to Rowena Ravenclaw, and later to sense the presence of the diadem in the Room of Requirement, hidden in a velvet jewel box instead of sitting on a warlock statue.
** Dumbledore is set up over the course of parts one and two as being not as kind and fatherly as he appeared. Now, in the book, all of this finally comes together and Dumbledore is revealed to still have been a good man who in the end essentially arranges Voldemort's downfall. But in the movie, most of his conversation with Harry at King's Cross is cut, and the subplot is left dangling. (Conversely, most of the explicit references to Dumbledore's dark side, such as his brief alliance with Grindelwald and his complicity in the death of his sister, don't get a mention either, so all that's left are a few vague hints of wrongdoing.) A line from Harry during his conversation with Aberforth sums up the film's approach to the Dumbledore subplot.
