* DumbassHasAPoint: From [[spoiler:Evil Bob's]] perspective Harry is an infant wizard with potential but clouded by stupid things like morality. However, when Harry rationally points out [[spoiler:that Evil Bob stopping to offer Harry a WeCanRuleTogether speech is in his self-interest, Evil Bob notes he doesn't have such a thing. When Harry replied that Evil Bob had the superior advantage over Harry in most every aspect and need not make the offer but did so and offered to help usurp Corpsetaker, it must be because Evil Bob feels his interests would be better served working with a less insane Harry than the egomaniac Coprsetaker. Ergo, Evil Bob does have self-interest and can choose to act on it. Evil Bob]] realizes there might be some validity to this and will think on it later, but now must kill Harry.

However, when Harry claims that killing him isn't in the being's self-interest, the being replies that it lacks "self-interest." Harry rationally points out [[spoiler:that Evil Bob stopping to offer hesitating in killing Harry for even a WeCanRuleTogether speech is in his self-interest, Evil second has no apparent rational basis, as Bob notes he doesn't have such a thing. When Harry replied that Evil Bob had is stronger and in the superior advantage over Harry in most every aspect position, serving the Corpsetaker would be best done by killing Harry, and need not make the offer but did so and offered to help usurp Corpsetaker, it must be because Evil Bob feels his interests isn't stopping to talk for Harry's sake]], therefore the hesitation is caused by [[spoiler:Evil Bob]] believing Harry alive would be better served working with a less insane Harry off for it than a dead Harry, ergo it is in its self-interest. Egro the egomaniac Coprsetaker. Ergo, Evil Bob does have self-interest and can choose to act on it. Evil Bob]] being has some level of "self-interest." The being realizes there might be some validity to this and will think on it later, but now must kill Harry.

* UnderestimatingBadassery: Lara mentions in ''Tun Coat'' she has files on plenty of Wardens. So it would be likely she has files on Harry's friends, especially those who joined him to fight the Red Court in ''Changes''. [[spoiler:So, Felicia the White Court rep for the Chicago Alliance meeting thinks she can blackmail Karrin into being fed on or she would reveal the Swords are in her care. Karrin pistol whips the woman, slams her face into a hot teapot and breaks the coffee table beneath it and then throws the vampire out with a warning Karrin would come to kill her if the White Court even blinks in the direction of the Swords]].

* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: Harry turns out to have been running an {{exaggerated}} version in ''Literature/{{Changes}}''. [[spoiler:He hired Kincaid to kill him so Mab couldn't use his powers, then had Molly erase it from his memory so that even ''he'' didn't know what the unspoken plan was. Then {{subverted}} when the unspoken plan ultimately fails at preventing Mab from gaining a wizard Winter Knight, but ultimately to little effect when Uriel tells Harry that, even as Winter Queen, Mab cannot change who Harry is if he doesn't let her.]]
