* TraumaCongaLine: Oh man, where do we even start this for Harry this time around, let alone acknowledging the many other characters who experience this in the book. Well, the most notable things to traumatize Harry for life in this book are, [[spoiler: He loses his Pet and oldest friend from the Wizarding World at the beginning of the book, watches as one by one more and more people get hurt/punished/die to protect him from Voldemort including his Best Friends and Authority Figures around him, He and his Friends are struggling to survive in the wilderness on a hunt where they have little to nothing to go on for long periods of time and barely escape death every time they do get a lead, and to top it all off, he finds out his Dead Mentor has been [[ChessMaster carefully setting up a Convoluted plan]] that in order to succeed, requires Harry to let Voldemort finally kill him after all these years of struggling to stay alive in order to finally defeat the man, all for the greater good.]] How Harry manages to walk away by the end of the book without being completely and utterly devoid of Love and all Hope is truly Extraodinary.

* IllGirl: Ariana, Dumbledore's sister, became half-insane because she refused to use magic after a traumatic experience where she was attacked by three {{Muggle}} boys who found out she was a witch. Her family put it about that she just had poor physical health to avoid attracting attention, leading many people to theorize that she was a [[MuggleBornOfMages Squib]], when in reality she would have magic exploding out of her when she couldn't keep it in anymore.

** The last scene before the epilogue where [[spoiler: Dumbledore's painting congratulates the hero is not unlike the ending of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', with the force ghosts of Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Anakin Skywalker watching Luke.

* ExtremelyShortTimespan: While each book in the series takes place over roughly one year, the last third of ''Deathly Hallows'' minus the epilogue ([[spoiler:the Gringotts raid, Hogsmeade, the Battle of Hogwarts]]), 13 chapters, takes place over about 24 hours, from the morning of 1 May 1998 to that of the following day. The [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows eighth film]], which covers the same events, qualifies as well.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The Deathly Hallows symbol. Viktor Krum is enraged to see Xenophilius Lovegood wearing it as a pendant, because it was used by Grindelwald, but it turns out the mark was originally benign and unluckily appropriated by evildoers. Given that Grindelwald is basically Wizard Hitler, it's a good parallel to the swastika, once a benign religious symbol that pre-dates the Nazis by millennia, being found in Jainism and Buddhism.
