** Harry and Ron taking note of Hermione seemingly disappearing from right behind them after the Potions class at the start of chapter seven, only to reappear seconds later further behind them. When asked how she did it, Hermione replies [[spoiler:"I had to go back for something." She had used the Time-Turner we find out about near the end.]] ** During the Divination exam, [[spoiler:Harry claims to see a Hippogriff in the crystal ball, and makes it out that it's flying away. This foreshadows Buckbeak's eventual escape courtesy of Harry and Hermione using the Time-Turner.]]

added ensemble dark horse
The book's popularity may be partially due to the introductions of [[ByronicHero Sirius]] and [[BadassBookworm Lupin]], considered by some fans to be two of the coolest characters in the series. It also marks the point where the books started to become [[StoryArc more serialized]] with each ending [[SequelHook setting up the next one]]. It also has, quite possibly, the most complicated plot of the entire series, drawing in characters and events from all over the place; the Prisoner of Azkaban is obviously important, but the ''way'' he is important zig-zags several times over the course of the novel, and the same thing happens to a ''bunch'' of other characters. The end result is that, by the end of the novel, the story's landscape has irrevocably changed... and readers know that things are going to get ''really'' interesting from now on.

** On that note, Snape spends the entire book dropping hints about Lupin's condition, in hopes that one of the students will catch on and get him fired. [[spoiler:In the end, Snape himself spills the beans, which gets Lupin fired]]

There was no chapter named Philosopher's Stone either...
* NonAppearingTitle: This is the only Potter book without a chapter named after its subtitle. In fact, the phrase "Prisoner of Azkaban" never appears anywhere else in the book.

* BigShutUp: Harry yells this at Snape in the latter's office when he keeps insulting Harry's dad. He does it again when Snape asks him to repeat what he just said ("''What did you say to me, Potter?''" "I told you to shut up about my dad!").
