* AdaptationalContextChange: The interrupted kiss in the book is a minor TearJerker, as Ron intentionally breaks it up in anger. In the film it's played for comedy, with George walking in on them (and actually trying to keep quiet).

* MillionMookMarch: Averted; when Voldemort's men think they've won they just shuffle wearily across the bridge to Hogwarts, exhausted after fighting all night. They only regain their arrogant bravado after Neville pretends he's going to join them. [[spoiler: Then there's the reaction when Harry reveals to still be alive, forcing many of them to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere]]to avoid the inevitable consequences]] once Harry and Voldemort's final face-off ends.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasStandards: If you pay attention as Nagini was about to eat Charity Burbage's corpse, you can see few Death Eaters are visibly terrified, although more vicious Death Eaters like Bellatrix and Dolohov seem fascinated instead.

* ContinuityNod: When Harry and Hermione arrive in Godric's Hollow, Hermione says she still thinks they should have used polyjuice potion. (In the book, they do use polyjuice potion, but in the film its cheaper and more moving for the graveyard scene, to use the actual actors.)

** In the movie continuity, Harry didn't meet Bill until this movie, which is why Bill properly introduces himself here. (In the book, they first met in the fourth book.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Well, it takes ''much'' less to convince Aberforth to help out than in the book.

** The Prince's Tale segment leaves out [[spoiler: Snape first asking to only save Lily, not caring if Harry and James die, and has him beg for everyone's safety from the start]].
** Almost with Draco. A scene was filmed where he [[spoiler: breaks ranks with the Death Eaters and throws Harry his wand after it's revealed he's still alive]] - but it was cut from the final film.
* AdaptationalModesty: Harry is naked when [[spoiler: he wakes up in the AfterlifeAntechamber]]. In the film he's already wearing clothes.



* BondVillainStupidity: While Voldemort has insisted that he has to be the one to kill Harry, evidently that does not extend to personally making sure he's absolutely dead.

* CallBack: When Sirius points out that "we're here" - meaning Harry's heart - it's a call back to when he said the same thing at the end of ''Film/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban''.

** [[spoiler: Goyle falls to his death from the top of a pile of junk in the Room of Requirement. Into the fiendfyre but still]].
** Fenrir Greyback is blasted out the window by Hermione after [[spoiler: he kills Lavender]].



* OhCrap: The students gasp when Snape pulls out his wand but back away, screaming at the sight of Professor [=McGonagall=]; they back away even more when she fires her first spell, for they can see that shit has hit the fan and will not be coming off of it for a while.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Kelly [=MacDonald=] plays the Grey Lady with an English accent but when she becomes enraged, her natural Scottish accent comes out.
** This is also a cunning sly move on the casting agents' part; Rowena Ravenclaw is from "the glens" which are in Scotland, so it makes sense that her daughter would, in turn, be Scottish.

* TheOphelia: Helena Ravenclaw is portrayed this way, in contrast to her proud and haughty description in the books.



* PromotedToLoveInterest: [[spoiler: Neville and Luna, which wasn't in the books. Matthew Lewis claims it was "a summer fling" before they moved onto their canon partners.]]



* TranquilFury: As [[spoiler:Professor [=McGonagall=] calmly and silently [[CurbStompBattle completely overwhelms]] the Carrow siblings as well as Snape at the Great Hall, knocking out the former and forcing the latter to flee]].

* TrashTheSet: Hogwarts gets utterly ''destroyed''.
** One of the biggest laughs is, after the final battle, whilst all the main characters are resting and congratulating themselves, Argus Filch, a Squib with no magical ability, starts to clean up the mess ''with a push broom.''

* 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.



* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: The fragment of mirror inexplicably appears in Harry's possession, with no previous mention of how it ended up there.
* AdaptationalContextChange: The interrupted kiss in the book is a minor TearJerker, as Ron intentionally breaks it up in anger. In the film it's played for comedy, with George walking in on them (and actually trying to keep quiet).
* AdaptationalModesty: When Harry jumps into the pool to retrieve the sword, he has to strip completely naked. In the film at least he keeps his boxers on. Averted with the Horcrux image of Harry and Hermione - who are just as naked as they are in the book.



* TheCameo: Frances de la Tour returns for a quick one as Madam Maxime at Bill and Fleur's wedding.



* DanceOfRomance: Subverted. Harry gets Hermione to dance with him just to cheer her up, but it's strictly platonic. The scene does hint that it could be heading that way - as it occurs after Ron leaves them thinking Hermione chose Harry - but nothing comes of it.



* EatTheCamera: Voldemort kills Charity Burbage, a professor at Hogwarts whom he considered repugnant for supporting Muggles. He tells his huge pet snake Nagini that "dinner is ready", and she slithers across the table, until the camera enters her mouth as she starts devouring Burbage's corpse.

to:

* EarlyBirdCameo: When Pius Thicknesse is shown taking charge of the Ministry, both Mafalda and Runcorn can be seen among the employees with him and Umbridge - while Reg Cattermole can be seen in the crowd listening. This foreshadows the trio impersonating them later when they infiltrate the Ministry.

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: The trio's hair is shown growing longer as they spend more time on the run. Harry gets a haircut from Hermione midway through, but the other two are quite shaggy.



* {{Fanservice}}: The nude kissing scene between Horcrux!Harry and Horcrux!Hermione is this to male and female fans alike.

The sound of the cappuccino machine [[FridgeBrilliance probably drowned out the noise too]].



* LamePunReaction: Never mind the fact that his brother just had his ear cut off; Fred is disgusted beyond belief that, with the world of ear-related humor before him, George went with holey.
** This may be a StealthPun on St George, patron saint of England

* LampshadeHanging: When they arrive in Godric's Hollow, Hermione says they should have used Polyjuice Potion to disguise themselves. They did do this in the book, but in the film it would clearly detract from the emotion of the scene to have different actors standing in for them.


Added DiffLines:

* SparedByTheAdaptation: Non-fatal variation. The waitress gets stunned in the fight in the cafe, along with the Death Eaters. In the film she just misses the fight and runs off.
