** "Harry Potter"; Said by Dumbledore, in relation to Harry being chosen by the Goblet of Fire as the fourth contestant. After this line was uttered, things really start to fall apart for Harry.

After this, he is forced to unwillingly compete in a dangerous tournament, temporarily loses his best friend Ron because the latter is jealous of him and hints are dropped someone inside the school is planning to use the tournament to kill Harry.

** In the first chapter, "I will allow you to perform an essential task for me, one that many of my followers would give their ''right hands'' to perform...."
** The beginning of the book starts off with a nightmare where Harry is dreaming about Voldemort killing an old man, which later turns out to be [[DreamSpying a psychic dream of an event that actually occurred]]. [[spoiler: This lays the groundwork for Occlumency and the Mental Connection that Harry and Voldemort have that is further delved into in the next book.]]
** [[spoiler:Voldemort's warning to Wormtail when he gives him the silver hand.]]
** [[spoiler:Dumbledore gets "an odd look of triumph" after learning that Harry's blood was used in Voldemort's resurrection spell. It's not until very late in the final book that this pays off.]]
** While Harry, Ron and Hermione are confronting Fred and George in the Owlery about their "blackmail" conversation [[spoiler:over Ludo Bagman scamming them at the World Cup]], George says to Ron: "Carry on like this and [[spoiler: you'll be made a prefect."]] In the next book, [[spoiler:Ron is made a prefect alongside Hermione.]]
** Mad Eye Moody saying "If there's one thing I hate, it's a Death Eater who walked free". Pays off when it's discovered that [[spoiler:it's not really Mad Eye Moody, but a loyal death eater in disguise as Moody who said it.]]
** Just before the climax, Voldemort tells his Death Eaters that he has gone further than anybody along the path that leads to immortality. We won't learn until Book 6 that[[spoiler: he's talking about his Horcruxes and that he's done what no other Dark Wizard has done in recorded history: create multiple Horcruxes.]]

** As Harry looks at the tent it is pointed out that he had never been camping before. [[spoiler: Oh, will he become experienced in three years' time...]]
** Hagrid mentions that Rita Skeeter wasn't happy with his good report about Harry. Ron jokes that she wants a new angle -- 'you were supposed to say Harry's a mad delinquent'. [[spoiler: By the end of the book, Rita does exactly that, laying the groundwork for a year-long Ministry smear campaign.]]
*** Going along with that, Dumbledore warns at the end of the year that "Lord Voldemort's gift for spreading discord and enmity is very great".

Added DiffLines:

* TheQuarterback: Non-football version with Cedric Diggory, the Hufflepuff Quidditch Captain and Seeker in the third book. He's handsome, kind, courageous enough to volunteer for the Triwizard Tournament (and skilled enough to become the Hogwarts champion), a good enough sportsman that he tries to get a rematch after dementors invade the field and knock Harry out, and eventually, a Sacrificial Lion. By contrast, the other Captains we see are either Slytherins (who embody UnnecessaryRoughness and cheat as if their lives depended on it) and Gryffindors (Wood, for who Quidditch is SeriousBusiness to the point that he doesn't mind that Harry's broomstick might be cursed if it gets them the Cup, and Harry himself).
-->'''Dumbledore:''' Cedric Diggory was, as you all know, exceptionally hard working, infinitely fair-minded, and most importantly, a fierce, fierce friend.

* WhiteMansBurden: deconstructed. Hermione's house-elf liberation subplot is, in-universe, portrayed as a bad thing, and she gets called on it by practically everyone. Aside from the inherent [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocrisy]] of launching a house-elf freedom campaign without so much as ''asking'' for their help, she also bases her view of house-elf needs on Dobby -- an individual whose views on freedom, payment and clothing are best described as "radically liberal." And she [[ComicallyMissingThePoint completely misses the point]] about why house-elves are unhappy -- their working conditions, not the work itself or lack of pay. (Even Dobby, when given employment later in the series, bargains his salary ''down'', feeling he's been offered too much.)

Hermione ''runs off crying.'' In the aftermath, however, Hermione turns that to her advantage, because she runs off to have her teeth magically fixed by Madam Pomfrey, and she lets her "carry on a bit", shrinking them to a size smaller than the original one (before the spell hit her). Thus she fixes permanently the problem of her teeth and gets a very beautiful smile.

Hermione irritatedly points out that she can't be doing that, since electronics don't work near Hogwarts. Hermione later discovers that she's literally bugging them- [[spoiler: She's a beetle animagus who uses her animal form to get close to people she wants to spy on.]]

** Snape continues the role from the previous books, but really reaches his peak in this book, not even trying to hide his favoritism for his Slytherin students and his bias against the students from the other houses. This is most notable when he not only lets Malfoy off scot-free when he hits Hermione with a charm that makes her front teeth grow huge but then tells her he "sees no difference", causing her to run off crying, then has the nerve to take points from Gryffindor, and then give Harry and Ron detention when they get angry over this. Fortunately, in the next book, Umbridge appears, replacing him in this role and making Snape look not nearly as bad by comparison.

* ShoutOut: Creator/MontyPython. Harry gains entrance to Dumbledore's office by trying various passwords, all of which are different kinds of sweet; the one that actually works, Cockroach Cluster, is a flavour used in the "Whizzo Assortment" sketch. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in that Harry is amazed that it works and insists that he was kidding, which suggests that Harry is in the Muggle-world a Monty Python fan. Cockroach Clusters are also shown to be a type of candy in the Harry Potter universe, though not a popular one.

* SpottingTheThread: Dumbledore realizes that [[spoiler:Moody is not the real Moody]] when he removes Harry from his sight.
* SpySpeak: A SubvertedTrope: a Muggle believes that terms such as "Quidditch", "Muggles" and "Ministry of Magic" are codenames used by gangsters or spies, but these are just normal wizarding words.
* StrawmanPolitical: Hermione, after seeing a house-elf fired for the crime of being terrified, decides that house-elves are "uneducated and brainwashed" slaves and need to be liberated. Then she meets other, non-fired house-elves and they're quite satisfied with their way of life, claiming that [[GoodFeelsGood virtue is its own reward]]. Hermione comes out looking, not heroic, but instead distinctly foolish.
* TalkAboutThatThing: Used by Hermione as an excuse to get her, Harry, and Ron out of the room before Mrs. Weasley blows up at Fred and George.

* WhiteMansBurden: deconstructed. Hermione's house-elf liberation subplot is, in-universe, portrayed as a bad thing, and she gets called on it by practically everyone. Aside from the inherent [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocrisy]] of launching a house-elf freedom campaign without so much as ''asking'' for their help, she also bases her view of house-elf needs on Dobby--an individual whose views on freedom, payment and clothing are best described as "radically liberal." And she [[ComicallyMissingThePoint completely misses the point]] about why house-elves are unhappy -- their working conditions, not the work itself or lack of pay. (Even Dobby, when given employment later in the series, bargains his salary ''down'', feeling he's been offered too much.)

* ZombieAdvocate: The female lead becomes indignant at how wizards treat the servant race known as House-Elves and starts an organization preaching freedom for these elves called S.P.E.W. Hermione's incessant campaigning pushes away anyone from joining her group, especially since all the House-Elves want to act like servants and don't want the freedom Hermione is pushing.

* RealMenWearPink: Both Charlie and Hagrid are mentioned are mentioned as knitting and this is either so normal for the wizarding world, or so normal for Harry, that the the only comment on it is the fact that they are knitting.

* DarkerAndEdgier: While J.K. Rowling has been progressively doing this with each new installment since the beginning, this book made the series take a huge leap in this trope. Notably, it's the first to feature a [[spoiler: DownerEnding]], with [[spoiler: Cedric being murdered and Voldemort getting a new body.]] It's also the one where the franchise's GreyAndGrayMorality grows more evident, as Rowling begins unveiling the dark side of the Ministry of Magic.
