* DesignatedVillain: While Sirius' treatment of Kreacher is painted in a poor light, it should be noted that while he was mostly just grumpy and uncaring towards him and never abused his authority or fired the house elf, Kreacher was the antagonist in their relaionship, constantly and ubceasingly insulting him and his friends, including calling Hermione a mudblood, and plots his murder at the first opportunity. It's little wonder Sirius doesn't treat him with love and respect.


Added DiffLines:

** Kreacher is never punished for his betrayal of Sirius and alliance with the Death Eaters, which ultimately leads to the latter's death.

** Cho for [[spoiler:dragging Marietta to DA classes when Marietta was unwilling, leading to the latter betraying everyone in the DA.]] The worst that happens is that [[spoiler:Harry calls her out for trying to justify Marietta's behavior, which would have gotten Cho expelled as well if Dumbledore hadn't covered for the students.]]
** The entire Inquisitorial Squad [[spoiler:suffers AmusingInjuries, but they don't receive any punishment for acting like Umbridge's SecretPolice and engaging in active torture. In fact, their points removal last through the end of the year so that McGonagall has to add points for Snape to want to deduct.]]
** The Aurors that [[spoiler:sent McGonagall to the hospital with their Stunners still have their job.]]
** Snape for [[spoiler:kicking Harry out of his office and refusing to teach him Occlumency. Dumbledore blames himself for setting up the situation in the first place when Harry yells at the Professor about it.]]

* TranquilFury: It is not a good idea to harm Dumbledore's students, but he doesn't have to raise his voice to express it.

* AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil: Umbridge attempts to create one with her "Inquisitorial Squad", who can take points off people for whatever they feel like and have greater authority than the Prefects. By that point, however, the school is in open rebellion and they end up making themselves targets.

This entry was in the works longer than any other book in the series besides the first one. In the three-year gap between ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'' and ''Order of the Phoenix'', speculation flew, {{Fanfic}}s such as ''Fanfic/TheDracoTrilogy'' reigned, and the franchise took off as a global entertainment brand after the release of the [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheSorcerersStone first]] [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets two]] films, which all led up to the release of ''Order'' becoming one of the biggest entertainment events of 2003.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: [[spoiler: Sirius gives Harry one last Christmas gift just as he goes back to Hogwarts at the end of the holidays, but Harry doesn't open it for fear it's something dangerous to Sirius, and it's placed in his trunk and forgotten. Much later, after Sirius is dead, Harry unwraps the gift and discovers what it is - a magic mirror that will allow for much easier communication, after the disaster Harry had trying to get a hold of Sirius in the previous book. Had Harry opened the gift sooner, he could have been able to check with Sirius - saving him from the events that ended up leading to Sirius's death. Hell, if Sirius had just ''told'' Harry about the mirror when they're talking about James, it would have saved a lot of grief. ]]
