* LaserGuidedKarma: A positive example: [[spoiler: because Harry chose to save Draco in the burning Room of Requirement, when Narcissa finds out he survived being hit with the Killing Curse, she has incentive to lie to Voldemort that he's dead in order to get back to the castle and find her son.]]

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: The Deathly Hallows, at least according to legend. Three brothers cheated Death, and Death sought to even the scales though [[ExactWords clever curses]] - he offered each brother a "gift" for their "cleverness". All three were clever enough to realize it was a trick - but only the last realized that Death [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow knew they'd figure out it was a trick]].
** The first brother asked to become powerful enough to defeat anyone who might try to kill him; Death gave this brother the Elder Wand, which made its holder un-defeatable in combat. He was killed in his sleep for it, starting a chain of killings that continued every time the Wand re-surfaced.
** The second brother asked to nullify Death's power. Death gave this brother the Resurrection Stone, which could resurrect the dead. It worked as promised, but it turns out that the dead [[DamagedSoul really don't like being brought back to life]]. He tried to use it to resurrect his lover, but killed himself upon realizing this.
** The third brother realized how much trouble they were in, so he asked for a way to ''hide'' from Death. Death was annoyed at being outwitted, but gave him the Cloak of Invisibility, which could hide anyone from anything forever. This worked out perfectly; the third brother went on to live a long and happy life, and when he was an old man, passed the cloak on to his son and greeted Death with dignity.

** [[spoiler: Voldemort created his Horcruxes with the intention of defeating death and never dying. He certainly got what he wanted - immortality of a sort - but as a ruined, shrivelled shadow of his former self, trapped forever in the limbo between life and death.]]

* WritersCannotDoMath: The revelation that James and Lily were only 21 when they were killed. Though it was already established that they were at least relatively young at the time, this leaves three years for them to join the order, become established members, Lily to be pregnant and have Harry, and the two to go into hiding (which was implied to have been over the course of several months). It does make the timeline rather cramped.

** Averted in the film, however, where Harry and Voldemort have a duel for five minutes, [[spoiler:with Voldemort flying around all over Hogwarts and Harry holding on for dear life. Then their wands induce a [[CallBack Priori Incantatem-like]] BeamOWar, and they duel for almost a minute before Neville cuts Nagini in two, which causes Voldemort to disintegrate due to all the Horcruxes being destroyed and his strength weakening to the point where his killing curse slowly rebounds on him]]. However other fans felt this deviated too much from the events in the book.

* MyNewGiftIsLame: Pointed out by Ron when [[BookWorm Hermione]] gets a book of fairy tales, Ron gets an item which can ''manipulate light'', and Harry gets... an old snitch. Harry, however, [[GenreSavvy knows]] that with it coming from Dumbledore there must be a secret involved, though -- and there is. Also the Snitch was the very one that Harry caught in his first ever Quidditch match, which if anything gave it some sentimental value, which in fact was useful to conceal even more of its true purpose from the Ministry.
