* CriticalResearchFailure: InUniverse, Snape identifies the {{kappa}} as from Mongolia. Lampshaded in ''Literature/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'', which correctly identifies the creature as Japanese, with a note written by Harry next to the entry that "Snape hasn't read this book either".

** Makes more sense when you consider that Snape was their SitcomArchNemesis in a similar way that Draco Malfoy is to Harry. After all, Draco did get his hands on what he thought was Harry's diary the year before -- it seems very logical for the Marauders to be prepared for a similar situation.

* BurnTheWitch: {{Lampshaded}}: Harry's over-the-summer essay is about how pointless medieval witch burnings were, since the few times the victim was a wizard and not a poor ordinary Muggle, they could simply cast a Flame-Freezing Charm and pretend to be suffering. They go on to mention that some witches and wizards allowed themselves to be caught and burned multiple times because [[TooKinkyToTorture they liked the fact that it felt like being tickled.]]

'''Snape''': Up to the castle? [[HangingJudge I don’t think we need to go that far.]] [[KickTheDog All I have to do is call the Dementors once we get out of the Willow.]] [[{{Sadist}} They’ll be very pleased to see you]], Black ... [[FateWorseThanDeath pleased enough to give you a little kiss]], I daresay.

** HeroicSelfDeprecation: Remus acknowledges this failing in the climax, even noting that Snape was {{metaphorically|True}} right about him not being trustworthy. He noted that he was grateful to Dumbledore for giving him the chance to study at Hogwarts and could never admit that [[spoiler:his friends became illegal Animagi and risked their lives for him and lied to Dumbledore for over seven years. He says he hoped Sirius had tried to get in via Dark Arts rather than his skills as an Animagus.]]

* IdiotBall: James, [[spoiler:Sirius]], and Lupin not realising that [[spoiler:Peter]] was TheMole for Voldemort and his followers despite being the perfect suspect. {{Lampshaded}} by [[spoiler:Sirius]] who says he'll never understand why he didn't realize it from the beginning.

* NotHelpingYourCase: [[spoiler:Sirius]] invokes this so many times that Dumbledore {{Lampshades}} it at the end, saying that he "has not acted like an innocent man" in his quest of RevengeBeforeReason. Among his ListOfTransgressions while [[spoiler:trying to find Pettigrew at Hogwarts]]: [[spoiler:Slashing the Fat Lady's portrait after she refused to let him in, breaking into Gryffindor Tower with a knife and shredding Ron's curtains on finding Pettigrew gone, later dragging an injured Ron away through the Whomping Willow passageway, and disarming Hermione and Harry saying "there will only be one death tonight."]]

* DisproportionateRetribution: Harry is shocked to see Snape taking delight in the thought of a former school bully receiving the Dementor's Kiss ("YOU'RE PATHETIC! JUST BECAUSE THEY MADE A FOOL OF YOU AT SCHOOL..."). The real reason for Snape's hatred of Sirius can be deduced from ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'' as [[spoiler:Snape assumed like everyone else that Sirius betrayed Lily to Voldemort]].
** What makes Snape's actions even more appalling is that Sirius is fully willing to co-operate with his arrest so long as he's taken to proper authorities with Ron bringing Scabbers as evidence:

* YouKnowTheOne: The Dementors are referred to as "the Azkaban guards" at first, leaving their exact nature ambiguous to the reader until their grand entrance. Afterwards, everyone just calls them what they are.

* ArmorPiercingSlap: Hermione gets fed up with Malfoy mocking Hagrid (though her temper is amplified by lack of sleep) so she smacks him right across the face. Malfoy is so stunned that he runs away. The film changes it to her threatening him with her wand, and then punching him on the nose.

* NonIndicativeName: Just prior to the events of the book Sirius escapes from Azkaban, so he's not ''technically'' a "Prisoner of Azkaban."

* NoSympathyForGrudgeholders: Harry has none for Snape whatsoever, and for good reason. Snape takes a lot of time to belittle and insult James, who saved Snape's life [[spoiler:from a fully transformed Lupin]], and Snape says that if there had been justice [[UngratefulBastard James would have been expelled for his actions.]] Of course, Snape then [[spoiler:outs Lupin as a werewolf, which forces the latter to resign at the end of the school year.]]
