** As noted in FridgeBrilliance, it's likely that Snape allowed everyone with an E into NEWT Defense Against the Dark Arts because otherwise Harry (who got an O, something that not even Hermione managed to do) would've been the only student in the class.

* GangOfBullies: It turns out that Tom Riddle was already recruiting followers while he was still a student. According to Dumbledore, members of this gang ended up becoming the first Death Eaters.


Added DiffLines:

* NoNameGiven: Two prominent Death Eaters at the end of the novel are unnamed but referred to constantly, the first one is only referred to as "The Brutal-Faced Death Eater" and then later we see "The Big Blond Death Eater". Both of these individuals are identified early on in the next book as Yaxley and Thorfinn Rowle.

* SoreLoser: The ''entirety'' of Slytherin during Ron's first Quidditch match, nearly making Gryffindor lose due to singing a demeaning song about Ron and how bad he is at the sport.

* ShipTease: Harry and Luna get some moments, such as him telling her she's cool, refuting his thoughts about her from [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Book 5]] and when he takes her to Slughorn's Christmas Ball. After he asks her to go with him, Peeves also becomes a Ship Tease and starts singing, "Potty loves Loony!"
* ShoutOut: Harr orders Kreacher to shut up to test his allegiance. Kreacher's eyes bulge as he grabs his throat and still mouths words. He then starts thrashing on the floor, which is accompanied by "frantic gulping". [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings One almost expects him to start whining about a precious ring he lost]].

* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: We are never told who in the Wizarding World started spreading around that Harry was any sort of "Chosen One", or why the general public may feel that there was one to be "chosen" in the first place.
