** [[spoiler: Dumbledore]] gives a similar message to Harry at King's Cross.
** [[spoiler:Ultimately what it truly means to be the "Master of Death." He does not escape death, rather he accepts that death is inevitable, and that there are [[FateWorseThanDeath far worse fates than dying]].]]

** [[spoiler: Dumbledore]] [[spoiler:Dumbledore]] gives a similar message to Harry at King's Cross.
** [[spoiler:Ultimately what it truly means to be the "Master of Death." He does not escape death, rather he accepts that death is inevitable, and that there are [[FateWorseThanDeath far worse fates than dying]]. Harry became the Master of Death because he came to this realization while unwittingly acquiring all three of the Deathly Hallows, and willingly went to what was seemingly his death in order to make Voldemort killable.]]

** [[spoiler:Peter Pettigrew, literally betrayed and choked by the hand he was given after he sacrificed his original one to let Voldemort return.]]



* NotAfraidToDie: The ultimate difference between Harry and Voldemort, [[spoiler:and also the true way to become the Master of Death]].



* OnceMoreWithClarity: Snape's memories, especially in regards to his worst memory.

* OnceMoreWithClarity: Snape's memories, especially in regards to his worst memory. [[spoiler:Harry initially believed it was his worst memory because of the immense amount of humiliation he suffered at the hands of the Marauders. With the new context of Snape's earlier memories, Harry (and thus, the reader) realizes the real reason why it's Snape's worst memory: it's the memory of the day Lily, the love of his life, ended their friendship, setting off a chain of events that led to Snape joining the Death Eaters and eventually causing Lily's death]].


Added DiffLines:

* WeAllDieSomeday: [[spoiler:The CentralTheme of the "Tale of the Three Brothers", and ultimately the series as a whole. The only true way to "master" death is to accept it as an inescapable fate. Voldemort's inability to understand this is what eventually leads to his downfall]].

Added DiffLines:

* PinballProtagonist: It's general across the series, but the plot of Deathly Hallows involves Harry more or less wandering from one moment to the next stumbling around to find clues and the next Horcrux location. It begins with the attack on Bill and Fleur's wedding forcing the Trio into hiding and then going to Grimmauld Place where Harry finds out who RAB is, and then spending the major first half of the book solely on locating, capturing and destroying that Horcrux while the final section has him [[spoiler:locate the remaining in very short order and again by pure accident]].

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAesop: Kreacher's redemption arc in the book involves Harry accepting that House-Elves have BlueAndOrangeMorality and that Kreacher shouldn't be held accountable for betraying Sirius to his death, which he both knowingly and willingly plotted. The problem is that near the end of the book, the trio meets Griphook the Goblin who articulates his own BlueAndOrangeMorality and insists on the Sword of Gryffindor because he sees it as belonging to the Goblins as per their idea of ownership. The Goblin idea of morality is presented negatively and seen as unacceptable by the same protagonists, so the overall aesop, rather than toleration and empathy for other people's viewpoints gets lost since the heroes are unwilling to do so at when it directly makes personal demands and sacrifices from them.

* ImmortalityInducer: As indicated in ''Literature/TheTalesOfBeetleTheBard'', it is a common misconception that those who claim ownership of all three of the Deathly Hallows will become immortal -- aka, the "Master of Death". A young, foolish Dumbledore subscribed to this belief, and only snapped out of it when his younger sister died. [[spoiler:In reality, the Master of Death is one who accepts that, even with magic, true immortality is impossible, and that death isn't the worst thing in the world]].

Added DiffLines:

** One from the American edition of the books, and a more literal case of the trope: both the first and last novel illustrations have the main picture framed by curtains. While the first shows Harry framed by colorful, mismatched and patterned curtains, the last book has curtains that are tattered and dull, reflecting the more child-friendly beginnings and the more bleak looking end.

Harry's not going to school this year, but don't worry, it's for a good cause. Harry, Ron and Hermione's only hope to defeat Voldemort is destroying all his [[SoulJar Horcruxes]] as he [[AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs infiltrates the Ministry]]. Harry, eager to get started on his hunt for horcruxes gets slammed by Voldemort's quick overthrow of the wizarding world, forcing the trio into hiding, where they must contend with themselves, who they are, what they are doing, feelings of helplessness, and if they really knew Dumbledore.

* AssimilationAcademy: Once Voldemort takes over the Ministry, Hogwarts becomes one of these under Snape and the Carrows. Muggle-borns are barred from attending and every Pure and Half Blood youth is forced to attend (previously they could attend a school abroad or be homeschooled if that's what the parents wanted). Additionally, Defense Against the Dark Arts becomes just the Dark Arts where students are actually taught them and Muggle Studies becomes a compulsory subject where everyone is taught anti-Muggle propaganda. Any student who tries to speak out or disobey the rules is subject to imprisonment in the dungeons and torture by the Carrows. The Slytherin sympathizers like Crabbe and Goyle enjoy the changes while Neville, Ginny, and Luna reform Dumbledore's Army to rebel against them.
