* ObviousRulePatch: It's mentioned that the exhaustive list of fouls (which apparently numbers in the ''hundreds'') has never been made public to avoid giving the players ideas. Though it's also mentioned that the list is mostly redundant, since the ban on using wands during play renders 90% of the fouls on the list impossible to commit.

** As mentioned above, Quodpot seems to be an Expy for American Football, with it being the preferred sport in the United States while Quidditch is largely ignored. Quodpot is also much more risky and violent for the players, boasting a ball that explodes under certain conditions.

* BadassDecay: InUniverse, the Chudley Cannons. They've won the league championship 21 times... but the last time they did it was in 1892. Since that point, they've been pitiful. Their motto even got changed from "We shall conquer" to "[[ButtMonkey Let's cross our fingers and hope for the best.]]"

* AmericansHateTingle: {{In-universe}}; Quidditch is less popular in America in comparison to Quodpot, a sort of hot-potato game involving a Quaffle that has been tampered with and explodes - probably a joke on Americans who prefer American football to soccer and are obsessed with StuffBlowingUp. In Asia, however, Quidditch is only slowly gaining appeal because Asian wizards have traditionally preferred flying carpets to flying broomsticks. The exception to this rule is Japan.

(Ironically, the 1993 Quidditch World Cup champions, the Sweetwater All-Stars, come from [[EverythingIsBigInTexas a region]] where American football is ''overwhelmingly'' the sport of choice in RealLife.)

* MisaimedFandom: {{In-universe}}. The original Golden Snidget was saved by a witch who was appalled at its abusive treatment. Unfortunately, she failed to prevent the abuse of later ones, and Snidget catching at Quidditch matches became so popular that the species almost became extinct.

Thankfully the Snidget was saved with more lobbying after the Golden Snitch's inventor showed that the Golden Snitch was invulnerable to being crushed.

* AnAxeToGrind: Apparently happened at one point, hence why it's banned in the official rules list.

* {{Expy}}: Puddlemere United is a mixture of the Liverpool and Manchester United football clubs. They have the success, widespread appeal, and share a similar name with Manchester United, and apparently have a song written for the team that's come to define them, like Liverpool.

* HistoryRepeats: Twice, it's shown a rule change that prompts wizards to say "TheyChangedItNowItSucks" - once for turning the goals from baskets on stilts into fixed-size hoops, and another for banning "[[UnnecessaryRoughness two chasers knocking out the goalkeeper]]".

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: {{In-universe}}; Japanese players have a {{seppuku}}-like custom of destroying the broom after a loss, as a way of the player regaining honor. Outside of Japan, the same practice is considered highly offensive and makes the Japanese look like sore losers.

* FlawedPrototype: The first Broomsticks were flyable, but they were not very aerodynamic, Their speeds varied from broom to broom, and were painfully uncomfortable and prone to shrapnel in really sensitive areas.
