* ActuallyPrettyFunny: When Fred and George try to bypass the Goblet of Fire's age line by using an aging potion, it doesn't work and the enchantment kicks in, resulting in the two of them growing long, white beards. They find it just as funny as Dumbledore and the rest of the students watching do.

* 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.



** The organisers of the Triwizard Tournament also have this in mind, as only allowing seventh-year students to participate ensures that they'll have the necessary magical know-how to overcome a lot of their obstacles, such as Cedric and Fleur being able to use charms that give them air-bubbles in contrast to Harry having to use Gillyweed stolen from Snape's potion supply.

* 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/PlayStation in the summer of 1994. Even in Japan, the console did not get released until December of that year.

* 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 eats lettuce, ''doesn't have any teeth,'' and has a X (boring) classification [[http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Flobberworm from the Ministry of Magic]].

** 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''.]]

* DubInducedPlotHole: A small one. When Hermione mentioned that the 1792 Triwizard Tournament was cancelled because of a cockatrice breaking free and injuring the judges, the Dutch edition translates cockatrice as basilisk. But this is impossible, since breeding basilisks has been illegal since medieval times, and they certainly don't want to use one of the most deadly creatures ever in a school tournament. Its gaze alone would have killed the entire audience.

Surely there had to be a simpler way to get to Harry.]]
