* GoneHorriblyRight: It can be inferred that the villain gave Norbert's egg to Hagrid so that he'd be dismissed when he inevitably got caught with it, and thus would be discredited and unable to mention that he'd accidentally blabbed about Fluffy's weakness to a stranger. This leads to the Trio being caught out of bed on the Astronomy Tower due to Malfoy seeing the egg and trying to report it, meaning they had to get rid of Norbert(a) by contacting Ron's brother Charlie, who asked them to meet him up there. This in turn leads to Harry learning about the properties of unicorn blood, which lets him deduce the thief's goal, forcing him to take matters into his own hands when [[YouHaveToBelieveMe McGonagall refuses to believe him]], resulting in [[spoiler:Voldemort leaving Quirrell to die, and the Stone is destroyed after Dumbledore and Nicolas Flamel have a chat while Harry is unconscious. Way to go, Voldy.]]

* ClosetSublet: Harry lived in the closet under the staircase prior to the Dursleys seeing that his initial Hogwarts letters are addressed to his "Cupboard Under the Stairs" and moving him into Dudley's spare bedroom. He didn't like it much, as his cousin Dudley loved to stomp down the stairs just to annoy him. As punishment the Dursleys would sometimes lock him inside it.

** Hagrid's first line to Vernon, "Shut up Dursley, you great prune!" sounds as if they men have met before. There's never again any indication that they have.

%%* PhilosophersStone: Of course.

%%* * PhilosophersStone: Of course.course. It seems that Lord Voldemort is really interested in living forever.



* SadistTeacher: Snape, who is a complete {{Jerkass}} to most students (especially Harry) and is absurdly biased towards Slytherin House. He's a mere precursor, however, to some genuinely evil SadistTeacher[=s=] introduced in Books 5 and 7.

* ExactWords: As Ron points out, and Dumbledore discovered the hard way as a kid, Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans really do have every flavor...including inedible things like earwax, boogers, and vomit.
