* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Subverted. Voldemort's trap for Harry hinges on exploiting the latter's ChronicHeroSyndrome, but [[spoiler:Voldemort seems to have forgotten the last time a person made a HeroicSacrifice to protect others from him....]]
** [[spoiler: Putting a Taboo on Voldemort's name, so that anyone who says it out loud (a trademark of LaResistance, and Harry in particular) will immediately be found, protective charms be damned.]]
** [[spoiler: Recognizing the real Harry when he uses Expelliarmus in the Death Easters' attack rather than a hex or curse.]]

* ContemptibleCover: For many the British/Canadian children's cover (pictured in the article) was one of these.

Added DiffLines:

* NonNaziSwastika: Initially, all Harry knows about the Deathly Hallows symbol is that it's been used by Grindelwald like Hitler's swastika was in the real world, and is reviled for it ever since, enough so that Krum is willing to beat up Xeno Lovegood for wearing it. Then he learns that the symbol predates Grindelwald and Xenophilius Lovegood is wearing it in relation to its older meaning.

The story of Harry is continued in ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'', a play that debuted in summer 2016 at London's West End, with a book version of the script being released the day after.

** Ron pokes a hole in their conspiracy the minute he hears about it, pointing out that if Muggles could steal magic, [[MuggleBornOfMages there'd by no such thing as Squibs]].

* SadistTeacher: The Carrows, a pair of ruthless Death Eater siblings, take over disciplinary matters and Defense Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts this year. You know they're bad when Neville says they make even Umbridge look good by comparison. ''No one'' on the staff wants to turn students over to them for punishment. [[spoiler:Not even Snape; when he catches several students trying to retrieve Gryffindor's sword, he levies the punishment himself--[[{{Unishment}} a night helping Hagrid]]--rather than turn them over to the Carrows. Given later revelations, he certainly did so on purpose.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SpoilerCover: Covers for the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series always show something from the book, but it's usually something vague like Harry flying on his broomstick. However, the American cover of this book shows the actual duel between Harry and Voldemort- specifically, with Voldemort flying backward while Harry reaches upward triumphantly (to catch Voldy' wand, though that isn't shown) as the sun rises in the background. This at least heavily suggests that Harry survives and defeats Voldemort personally, where the former event in particular was very uncertain.

* SkewedPriorities: Mrs. Weasley, who as a member of the Order of the Phoenix should know very well ''why'' Harry, Ron, and Hermione are not going back to Hogwarts for their seventh year: Because there are ''three Death Eaters in high ranking positions'', and who proceed to abuse those positions in Voldemort's name (to the point that the Carrow twins actually ''teach the students to use evil spells on each other.''
