* WizardDuel: After five books, we get to see [[BigGood Dumbledore]] and [[BigBad Voldemort]] throw down during the climax. \n It's effectively a tie, but confirms that these two are on a ''completely'' different level from anyone else.
* WorldsShortestBook: Inverted.Inverted, though the spirit of the insult is the same:



* WouldntHurtAChild:
** In their first appearance this book, the centaurs let Hagrid pass because he has "foals" (Harry and Hermione) with him. The second time, however, they decide that they're grown up enough to be acceptable targets.
** In a bizarre version, Hermione stops Harry from attacking a Death Eater whose head (but not the rest of him) has been regressed to that of a baby.



* YouKeepUsingThatWord: In the final chapter, the trio talk about how Harry had been "forced to bear ridicule and slander," and Hermione mentions that the ''Daily Prophet'' failed to mention that it was they themselves that had ridiculed and slandered Harry. In fact, what the ''Daily Prophet'' did to Harry was not '''slander''', but '''libel'''.

** Harry is furious when Cho tries to apologize for [[spoiler:Marietta betraying them all]] because he thinks Cho ought to have [[spoiler:chosen her friends better]]. It's one thing that it happened, but it's another that Cho is trying to be an apologist, as he bluntly tells her.

* CapsLock: Some reviewers complained about Harry yelling IN ALL CAPS in the book. While they may have a point, you have to wonder if they've ever actually had to talk with an angsty, grumpy fifteen-year-old before. Let alone an angsty, grumpy fifteen-year-old who knows his life is in danger, and knows that everyone he trusts to protect him is lying to him, keeping secrets, or both.

* ShaggyDogStory: Hagrid's trip to recruit the giants was one of these. He and Madame Maxine spent the entire previous summer trekking to the place where the giants live and spent many days presenting the leader of the giants gifts in hopes of winning him and the giants he led to the Order's side. Their efforts were wasted when another giant backed by the Death Eaters killed the current leader and took over, forcing Hagrid and Maxine to make a hasty retreat. The only real long term effect their trip had on the story was [[spoiler:Hagrid finding and bringing his half brother Grawp home with him.]]
