* ArtisticLicenseBiology: In-universe example. In order to make Hagrid look bad to Rita Skeeter, Malfoy claims that in addition to being attacked by Buckbeak, Crabbe also got a bad bite off of a flobberworm. Which mainly eat lettuce, ''don't have any teeth,'' and have a X (boring) classification [[http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Flobberworm from the Ministry of Magic]].
** After a classroom mishap enlarges her front teeth, Hermione allows the school nurse to shrink them a little farther than to their original size, so she won't have to get braces. Teeth don't need braces because they're too ''large'', but because they're positioned wrong (usually tilted too far ''forwards'') so shrinking them shouldn't avert an orthodontic issue.

* {{Brainwashed}}: Averted. Notice how interested Harry's Defense Against Dark Arts teacher is that he can resist the Imperious curse. This is important in two ways. [[spoiler: First, it rules out Barty Crouch using it on Harry in his plans for the book. Secondly, it means the reader can rest easy for the rest of the series - Harry is not and will never be under mind control.]]

* ChekhovsGunman: A minor example. Hermione informs us that Parvati has a twin sister - when previously there had only been mention of "a pair of twin girls" with the last name Patil in the first book - several chapters before she is Ron's date for the Yule Ball.

During the War against Voldemort, he authorized his people to use the Unforgivable Curses and gave them leeway to kill rather than capture suspects.

* 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 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.

** Averted by Moody; Sirius notes that while he was tough and uncompromising, Moody never sank to the level of the Death Eaters and always attempted to bring his quarry in alive wherever possible.

** While we don't learn what Harry's individual scores were after the second task, it's strongly implied that it was four 10/10s and one 5/10 from Karkaroff. It again puts him in a tie for first place.



* AnachronismStew: A minor case: at the beginning of the book, Harry, in writing a letter to Sirius, makes a remark about Dudley and his UsefulNotes/PlayStationů in the summer of 1994. Even in Japan, the console did not get released until December of that year.
** Some fans brush this one off in that the game Dudley wants for it "''Mega-Mutilation Part Three''" is fictional itself, thus perhaps adding to an AlternateUniverse PlayStation release date.

* BondVillainStupidity: Near the end of ''Goblet of Fire'', Harry has been disarmed, gagged, and tied securely to a gravestone. Rather than simply killing Harry after using his blood to regain his body, Voldemort not only has Wormtail cut him loose and give him back his wand, but insists on fighting him in a one-to-one duel and forbids interference from any of his Death Eaters, for no other reason than to prove, once and for all, that he is the stronger of the two. The final result of this is that Harry manages to escape Voldemort's attempt on his life, once again through luck, and warn everyone of his resurrection. It was reasonable of Voldemort to assume that Harry was no longer protected by love, but he was unaware of the twin cores. [[spoiler:However, Voldemort does use Harry's escape to his advantage in ''Order of the Phoenix''.]]
** Rowling stated that the reason for Voldemort's downfall was mainly because of his over-inflated ego. This scene was foreshadowing all the pride-related mistakes he'd make in the future. Also, Creator/RalphFiennes mentioned something about how the scene -- when you strip the magic elements away -- is really just a man humiliating a young boy. Voldemort was gloating over having his body back and wanted to mess with the kid who'd caused him so much trouble over the years. He wasn't exactly using his head at that moment.

** Actually, [[spoiler: Barty Crouch Jr]] is guilty of this one as well in the end. After Harry's return from [[spoiler: the graveyard]], [[spoiler: Crouch]] has plenty of time to kill him when he manages to get him alone, but wastes it asking for details of what happened to him and gloating in detail about how he manipulated events so that Harry would reach the Triwizard Cup first; as a result, [[spoiler: Dumbledore gets there in time to stop Crouch just as he ''finally'' gets around to actually trying to kill Harry]]. He even gives Harry a healing potion to clear his head so he can answer his questions and understand him as he gloats.
