* NeverMyFault: In ''Storm Front'', when Harry visited Bianca in her brothel, she attacked him and he protected himself. Bloodlust set on her so much that she killed her partner/slave. Who does she blame? Harry.

* GoofyPrintUnderwear: Harry is in ducky print boxers during the last fight with the Red Court. He found it in a laundry room, and it's hard to picture who might have been wearing them before him.

* ContrivedCoincidence: A superpower for the Knights of the Cross. In this book, for instance, Harry and Michael need to [[spoiler:go rescue Charity,]] but Harry does not want to leave Michael's kids alone. Michael simply opens the front door to show [[GoodShepherd Father Forthill]], just about to knock, standing on the steps because his car just ''happened'' to break down. He looks between them and says, "You need a babysitter again, [[SeenItAll don't you?"]]

* ChekhovsGunman: Pretty much ''everyone'' at Bianca's party. Particularly the pair of {{Black Cloak}}s with the athame, who later reappear in ''Literature/DeadBeat''.

* ChekhovsGunman: Pretty much ''everyone'' at Bianca's party. Particularly the pair of {{Black Cloak}}s with the athame, who later reappear in ''Literature/DeadBeat''. WordOfGod is that everyone Harry met at that party would play a role later on in the series. So far this has been true for everyone except [[spoiler: Ferrovax, the Dragon]], who Butcher has stated will reappear in the final books.

* DroolHello: In the last battle in [[spoiler:Bianca's burning house]], one of the vampires seems to try this on Harry deliberately. Given that Red Court Venom is an [[FantasticDrug incredibly potent narcotic]] that is absorbed through the skin near-instantly, this is actually a viable tactic.

Added DiffLines:

** To a lesser degree, if Harry had laid out ''why'' going to Bianca's ball would be so dangerous [[spoiler: and why being invited meant they couldn't be harmed directly, but gatecrashing the party would be tantamount to suicide]], she wouldn't have brushed his concerns off with an "I can take care of myself."

* StopOrIShootMyself: Dresden swallows a poisonous mushroom to get Lea to back off - she can't have him if he's dead, but Michael here just happens to have a semi-antidote lying around, and he's willing to trade...
