* BlueAndOrangeMorality: The Sphinx is a mostly benevolent creature who will only get violent if the person who hears their riddle guesses wrongly. It's not known from Harry's encounter in the fourth book if a Sphinx will interpret ''any'' answer as a guess - but she does allow him to ask questions about the riddle. Also she gives the option for them to choose not to guess and walk away.

** In the entry for Leprechauns, it mentions that they produce "a realistic gold-like substance that vanishes after a few hours, to their great amusement." Ron notes next to it, "But not mine."

It is [[DirectLineToTheAuthor supposedly a copy of the edition owned by Harry Potter]], complete with lots of [[CrowningMomentOfFunny amusing graffiti]] written in it by Harry and Ron, and a bit from Hermione.

** The entry for pixies has them classifed as "XXX", which means competent wizards should cope. Next to it has Ron's note: "but XXXXXXX if you're Lockhart", referencing to the pixie-chaos that Lockhart unleashed in ''Literature/ChamberOfSecrets'' while attempting to teach DADA, and the subsequent injuries he suffered for it.
