* BuryingASubstitute: [[spoiler:Mad-Eye Moody]] is killed by Voldemort, but his body isn't found. However, Harry [[spoiler:sees a false eye on Dolores Umbridge's office door that resembles Moody's]], and suspects she found and stole it. He thus steals it back and buries it in the forest.

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: The Deathly Hallows, at least according to legend. Three brothers cheated Death, and Death sought to even the scales though [[ExactWords clever curses]] - he offered each brother a "gift" for their "cleverness". All three were clever enough to realize it was a trick - but only the last realized that Death [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow knew they'd figure out it was a trick]].
** The first brother asked to become powerful enough to defeat anyone who might try to kill him; Death gave this brother the Elder Wand, which made its holder un-defeatable in combat. He was killed in his sleep for it, starting a chain of killings that continued every time the Wand re-surfaced.
** The second brother asked to nullify Death's power. Death gave this brother the Resurrection Stone, which could resurrect the dead. It worked as promised, but it turns out that the dead [[DamagedSoul really don't like being brought back to life]]. He tried to use it to resurrect his lover, but killed himself upon realizing this.
** The third brother [[GenreSavvy realized]] how much trouble they were in, so he asked for a way to ''hide'' from Death. Death was annoyed at being outwitted, but gave him the Cloak of Invisibility, which could hide anyone from anything forever. This worked out perfectly; the third brother went on to live a long and happy life, and when he was an old man, passed the cloak on to his son and greeted Death with dignity.

--> Harry "You can't do it if I don't cooperate, you need me to give you some hair."

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Subverted. Voldemort's trap for Harry hinges on exploiting the latter's ChronicHeroSyndrome, but [[spoiler:Voldemort seems to have forgotten the last time a person made a HeroicSacrifice to protect others from him....]]
** [[spoiler: Putting a Taboo on Voldemort's name, so that anyone who says it out loud (a trademark of LaResistance, and Harry in particular) will immediately be found, protective charms be damned.]]
** [[spoiler: Recognizing the real Harry when he uses Expelliarmus in the Death Easters' attack rather than a hex or curse.]]

* NonNaziSwastika: Initially, all Harry knows about the Deathly Hallows symbol is that it's been used by Grindelwald like Hitler's swastika was in the real world, and is reviled for it ever since, enough so that Krum is willing to beat up Xeno Lovegood for wearing it. Then he learns that the symbol predates Grindelwald and Xenophilius Lovegood is wearing it in relation to its older meaning.
