* NotHelpingYourCase: Uric the Oddball subjected himself to three months of Fwooper song so he could prove that it did not cause insanity. He then showed up to the next Wizards' Council meeting naked save for a dead badger on his head, thus convincing nobody.

* CallForward: There's an entry referencing Invisibility Cloaks, namely that they wear out after a few years and become opaque. [[spoiler: That Harry's belonged to his dad several decades ago and is still in perfect working order is a hint about its true nature.]]



* {{Foreshadowing}}: The Demiguise is mentioned as a huge, gorilla-like creature whose silky hair is used to create invisibility cloaks. These cloaks are said to wear out over time. [[spoiler: Harry's cloak has been around for years and is still fully functional, becoming an important plot point in ''Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'']].

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman:
** A serious issue, given the wizarding world's [[HalfHumanHybrid partially-human hybrid creatures]] and [[TalkingAnimal talking animals]] of various levels of intelligence. The centaurs in particular willingly separated themselves from humans, rejecting 'Being' classification.
** There was a big debate about the inclusion of Werewolves, since they are essentially just cursed humans.

** Ditto with the Lethifold, which requires a Patronus Charm to repel. Around the time this book came out, we'd only seen Patronuses used on Dementors. Similarly to the Nundu Harry didn't have a reason to visit the Lethifold in the tropics.

** The 2017 update of the book added two more XXXXX-classified beasts: the Wampus Cat and the Horned Serpent. It's not specified exactly what makes Wampus Cats so dangerous, but they can walk on their hind legs, outrun arrows and are reputed to have hypnotic eyes. However, the Cherokee have traditionally used their hairs as wand cores, implying that they can be befriended or tamed. Horned Serpents are equally mysterious, but Isolt Sayre was known to have befriended one.

** Chimaeras, creatures with the head of a lion, the body of a goat and the tail of a dragon. Only one attempt to kill a member of this species has ever succeeded. And [[FluffyTamer Hagrid]] tried to buy an egg once, possibly to use in Care of Magical Creatures class.
** Lethifolds, a Dementor-like creature that can sneak up on a sleeping person and eat them alive, leaving nothing behind. It can only be repelled by a Patronus, a difficult feat of magic.
** The Nundu, a gigantic, silent leopard with poisonous breath so powerful it can wipe out entire villages from disease.
** Quintapeds, vicious five-legged beasts that enjoy eating humans. They are so dangerous that the single island they live on has been magically rendered Unplottable so that it does not show up on maps.
** Werewolves, who are human every day of the month except for nights with a full moon, when they turn into violent beasts that attack and eat humans on sight. Even werewolves in human form can be dangerous, as proved by the savage Fenrir Greyback, an ally of the Death Eaters whose mission is to bite and transform as many people into werewolves as possible.
