* NoPronunciationGuide: Viktor Krum's troubles pronouncing Hermione's name serves to clear this out. [[note]]Interestingly, the Bulgarian translator successfully avoided this trope back in the first book - Hermione's transliterated name was spelled in FunetikAksent and the only mispronunciation possible would be via AccentUponTheWrongSyllable, which she prevented by adding a stress to her name when it was first mentioned. This also makes Krum's mistakes something of a RealityIsUnrealistic trope where Bulgarian readers are concerned.[[/note]]

* VillainHasAPoint:
** [[spoiler:Fake Moody]] calls out Snape for having an unhealthy obsession with getting Harry into trouble. It says something that the [[spoiler: "most faithful Death Eater"]] can see through the BlatantLies of an adult determined to catch a young boy out of bed "for his safety".
** Bellatrix Lestrange while the Dementors escort her says that even if they throw her and her husband in prison, Voldemort will rise. She's right.

* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: Voldemort never stops giving shit to Wormtail in Book 4, regarding him with loathing, disgust, and total contempt, and more or less abusing him verbally and physically in every single scene they share in ''Goblet of Fire''. Voldemort hates the fact that the instrument for his return to power is more or less a last resort for a guy who spent 12 years a rat and in the graveyard speech, he gave Wormtail a BackhandedCompliment, while giving the unnamed [[spoiler:Barty Crouch Jr]] the Employee of the Year award.

* {{Narm}}: In-universe, Harry thinks that Professor Moody must see the whole scenario where Harry is caught out of bed trying to figure out the second clue (an otherwise dramatic and intense moment) to be quite silly, since his eye is able to see Harry's awkwardly-positioned body through the Cloak.

* MotiveMisidentification: Throughout the story, everyone thinks that someone put Harry's name in the Goblet of Fire in an attempt to get him killed while making it look like an accident. In the end it is revealed that [[spoiler:his name was entered in the hope that he would ''win'', touch the Triwizard Cup, and restore Voldemort to life.]]

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: Harry uses [[SummonToHand Accio]] to summon his broom during the first task; he didn't think of just using it to summon the dragon egg he was trying to get or summoning the broom to fly over the maze in the third task.

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: Harry uses [[SummonToHand Accio]] to summon his broom during the first task; he didn't think of just using it to summon the dragon egg he was trying to get or summoning the broom to fly over the maze in the third task. In fact, the fact that ''none'' of the champions thought to just summon the egg to them suggests that they forgot it was possible, or that the egg had been enchanted to specifically prevent that - watching four people walk into an arena and have the egg zip into their hands isn't particularly entertaining. In either case, no explanation for why they don't do it is given.

* SingingInTheShower: When Harry opens up his egg to reveal the clue for the second task of the Triwizard Tournament, there's a screechy wailing and George Weasley says that it sounds like Percy Weasley singing, saying that maybe Harry has to attack him while he's in the shower. This would imply that this is something that Percy does, but isn't very good at it.

* BothSidesHaveAPoint: The organizers of the Triwizard Tournament have a good reason for only allowing of age students to participate. It ensures that the selected champions will have the necessary magical knowledge to complete the highly dangerous tasks. Their reasoning is proven sound when Cedric and Fleur are able to use the Bubble-Head charm to breathe underwater in the second task while Harry has to use Gillyweed stolen from Snape's potion supply (given to him by Dobby no less) because he doesn't know about that spell. On the flip side, Fred and George are rightly angered by the fact that Cedric, who is in the same year as them as has had the same exact education, is allowed to put his name in the Goblet of Fire while they aren't just because his 17th birthday happened to fall before entry deadline and theirs didn't.
