* FingerSnapLighter: Lupin does this at one point.
* {{Foreshadowing}}
** Lupin teaching Harry's class how to deal with the Boggart, a magical creature that is warded off with the combination of a spell and positive thoughts, foreshadowing him teaching Harry how to deal with Dementors. In this class, we learn that the Boggart can take on the form of a person's greatest fear. When Lupin pushes himself in front of Harry to protect him from the Boggart-as-Dementor, the boggart turns into [[spoiler:a full moon. Why a full moon?]] Hmmmm...

** Ron wakes up in the middle of the night to find his curtains shredded and Sirius Black standing over him with a knife before fleeing when Ron screams. Everyone assumes Black was after Harry and went to the wrong bed, though Harry and Ron find it weird he didn't just kill Ron before moving on to Harry since he had no problem murdering bystanders thirteen years ago. [[spoiler:Turns out Sirius did go to the right bed because Ron was letting Scabbers aka Peter Pettigrew sleep there and that Sirius wasn't the one who killed those people.]]



* When Harry and Hermione follow Ron down the tunnel into the Shrieking Shack, Harry looks at a destroyed armchair and says "Ghosts didn't do that." This is an early clue that the Shrieking Shack is not actually haunted, as Lupin explains later.

** Dumbledore mentions that sparing Wormtail's life means Voldemort now has a servant who owes his life to Harry. [[In book 7, when Harry is being strangled by Wormtail, Harry reminds him of this, which causes Wormtail to hesitate long enough for Harry to break free. Wormtail then gets strangled to death by his own magic hand (the result of a curse put on it by Voldemort should Wormtail ever betray him)]].

* AdultFear: The incident with Buckbeak and Draco. Imagine that you own a dog, a big dog, but a friendly one. Now, some twerp deliberately taunts your big dog, after you specifically tell him not to, gets bitten, then complains to his influential father, who gets an order to have your dog put down because it's 'dangerous'.

*** Malfoy Jr also makes the valid point that assigning said thirteen-year-old children a book that ''bites,'' and expect them to figure out that you open the book by stroking the spine, is incredibly irresponsible and unprofessional.

** The Malfoys about Buckbeak the hippogriff, maybe not about killing him, but they ''are'' right about Hagrid's recklessness in putting thirteen-year-old children in close proximity to an animal that is highly dangerous. Even our three heroes frequently question Hagrid's attraction to horribly dangerous animals.

* {{Pride}}: This is Hermione's FatalFlaw during the book. She signs up for every course believing she can do all the extracurriculars, and nearly goes insane from catching up. She dismisses Ron's worries about her cat going after Scabbers and only apologizes when [[spoiler:Ron promises to help her with Buckbeak's case.]] Then she tells McGonagall about the Firebolt that Harry receives on Christmas without telling Harry about her worries first, which lead to Ron and Harry calling her out since Harry needs a new broom to play Quidditch and since he's Sirius Black's main target he ought to know if a nice present will try to kill him. By the end of the book CharacterDevelopment sets in; [[spoiler:she drops two of her classes to have a better schedule, admits she was wrong about the Firebolt when McGonagall can't find any jinxes on it, and tries to shoo Crookshanks away from Scabbers near the Whomping Willow]].

** [[spoiler:McGonagall when she finds out someone wrote down the passwords for Gryffindor Tower and left them lying around, which resulted in Sirius Black being able to get into Gryffindor Tower. Justified because at this point, everyone still thinks Sirius was after Harry.]]
