Retitled ''Harry Potter and the '''Sorcerer's''' Stone'' in the United States because the [[ExecutiveMeddling American publisher]] worried that kids would think a book with "philosopher" in the title [[ViewersAreMorons would be boring]]. Of course, this was before ''Harry Potter'' was the [[CashCowFranchise reliable franchise]] it became.

No sinkholing trope names.
* [[PoliceAreUseless Muggle Security-Guards Are Useless]]: Not only is the guard at the train station justifiably ignorant of Platform 9, but he dismisses an ''eleven-year-old'' who's bewildered and alone as a "time waster". Isn't reuniting lost children with their escorts a part of his job?

Fixed swiss cheese spoiler
** [[spoiler:Voldemort]] correctly surmising that [[spoiler:Harry lied to Quirell about having the Stone during the climax at the Mirror of Erised.]] It seems like he's just being GenreSavvy or that Harry didn't lie too well.[[spoiler: Voldemort's actually employing Legilimency, though it won't be identified as such until Book 5.]]
