** One from the American edition of the books, and a more literal case of the trope: both the first and last novel illustrations have the main picture framed by curtains. While the first shows Harry framed by colorful, mismatched and patterned curtains, the last book has curtains that are tattered and dull, reflecting the more child-friendly beginnings and the more bleak looking end.

Harry's not going to school this year, but don't worry, it's for a good cause. Harry, Ron and Hermione's only hope to defeat Voldemort is destroying all his [[SoulJar Horcruxes]] as he [[AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs infiltrates the Ministry]]. Harry, eager to get started on his hunt for horcruxes gets slammed by Voldemort's quick overthrow of the wizarding world, forcing the trio into hiding, where they must contend with themselves, who they are, what they are doing, feelings of helplessness, and if they really knew Dumbledore.

* AssimilationAcademy: Once Voldemort takes over the Ministry, Hogwarts becomes one of these under Snape and the Carrows. Muggle-borns are barred from attending and every Pure and Half Blood youth is forced to attend (previously they could attend a school abroad or be homeschooled if that's what the parents wanted). Additionally, Defense Against the Dark Arts becomes just the Dark Arts where students are actually taught them and Muggle Studies becomes a compulsory subject where everyone is taught anti-Muggle propaganda. Any student who tries to speak out or disobey the rules is subject to imprisonment in the dungeons and torture by the Carrows. The Slytherin sympathizers like Crabbe and Goyle enjoy the changes while Neville, Ginny, and Luna reform Dumbledore's Army to rebel against them.

* SuddenlyVoiced: Crabbe and Goyle get on-page dialogue for the first time in the series (not counting when Harry and Ron impersonated them in book two). The gargoyle that guards Dumbledore's office also speaks in this book when it never did before.

* SeeingThroughAnothersEyes: Harry is sometimes able to see from Voldemort's perspective, usually when Voldemort is experiencing strong emotions. This proves to be extremely useful since Harry can find out what Voldemort is up to.



** The overall structure of the StoryBreadcrumbs of multiple UnreliableNarrator that tells us about Dumbledore often with a totally different perspective is reminscent of ''Film/CitizenKane'', the book even starts with Harry reading a profile of Dumbledore's career and achievements, much like the newsreel that starts that film. [[spoiler:Since this is a magical story, Dumbledore does confirm everything beyond the grave]].
** The last scene before the epilogue where [[spoiler: Dumbledore's painting congratulates the hero is not unlike the ending of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', with the force ghosts of Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Anakin Skywalker watching Luke.]]

* ContrivedCoincidence: The book is full of it. For example: Dean, Ted and the goblins happening to break for camp and discussing important plot points right next to where the trio was camping.camping. The goblin in Malfoy just happens to be the same Gringotts goblin Harry met in the first book, and also the perfect person to plan a bank robbery. Harry and happens to pass by and spot Ignotus' gravestone in a graveyard in the middle fo the night, no less. Rawenclaw's diadem just happens to be the random thing Harry picked up and put on a bust's head to mark it a year earlier, which unlike the other horcruxes is conveniently not hidden or protected by any means due to villain stupidity. The ghost of hosue Ravenclaw just happens to be the only person who knows what's happened to her mother's diadem.
