** Hagrid has been (presumably under Dumbledore's approval considering how one ends up in the last challenge) secretly breeding manticore/firecrab hybrids called "Blast-Ended Skrewts". The actual creation of magical crossbreeds is forbidden in [[TheVerse the Potterverse]], specifically because it has the potential to create such highly dangerous creatures. The Skrewts are mentioned as being so aggressive, they eventually wipe themselves out save [[LastOfHisKind a lone survivor]].

*** 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." The next year, the Ministry's refusal to accept that he's back creates a great deal of discord and enmity, the most notable example being between Percy and his family.

** At one point, Harry and Ron speculate that Rita Skeeter is bugging them, i.e. using electronic surveillance devices. 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.]]

** [[spoiler:Igor Karkaroff]] spends the whole book acting as suspiciously as possible. For readers GenreSavvy enough to know it would never be someone so obvious, [[spoiler:Ludo Bagman]] is made a viable suspect with evidence against him occasionally brought up, but nearly always dismissed by the characters as irrelevant.

* BloodMagic: Voldemort needs an enemy's blood to take corporeal form again. It could be any enemy, really, but he picks Harry. He does so because he thinks only the blood of his greatest enemy can make him come back even more powerful than he was when he had fallen. [[spoiler:Terrible mistake - as it turns out, it only tethered Harry to life as long as Voldemort lived and thus helped to ensure his own downfall.]]
