* CompletelyOffTopicReport: When the regular Quidditch commentator is unable to report on a match, [[CloudCuckoolander Luna Lovegood]] volunteers to replace him. During the match she talks about things like interesting clouds and whether one of the players suffers from something called "Loser's Lurgy", but never about the action or the score of the game.

* RightForTheWrongReasons: Hermione thinks the titular Prince was Eileen Prince, a student at Hogwarts, and theorizes that the title comes from her pride to be the child of her Prince parent. [[spoiler: The Prince is actually Snape, but Eileen was his witch mother. This means Hermione was entirely correct about the Prince being proud of their parent of the same name, she just had the wrong person.]]

** Well, anyone who didn't think to bring along a second person (or elf) with them. Dumbledore sacrificed himself but could've made Harry drink the potion. R.A.B. had [[spoiler:Kreacher]]. It's reasonably easy to imagine that Voldemort would likely just imperius a muggle.

* UriahGambit: [[spoiler:Voldemort doesn't actually think Draco will succeed at assassinating Dumbledore, so the whole thing is an exercise in futility to punish Lucius for his failure in the previous book. EvilCannotComprehendGood, so it is likely that Voldemort assumes Dumbledore will kill Draco in self defense. Furthermore, when Draco fixes the vanishing cabinet, Voldemort dispatches a B-team to accompany him. The incompetent Carrows, the [[FantasticRacism supposedly inferior]] werewolf Fenrir Greyback, and accidental TeamKiller Thorfinn Rowle certainly aren't winning any awards for Death Eater of the Month compared to someone like Bellatrix Lestrange or Antonin Dolohov, who Voldemort could have chosen to send instead. He still wants Dumbledore dead, which is why he orders Snape to actually kill him, but he certainly does not believe that Draco Malfoy has even the slightest chance to kill the only one he ever feared.]]

*** YMMV here, but remember Malfoy was also cheering when he got the vanishing cabinet to work?
