* ProductPlacement: Ballycastle's mascot, Barny the Fruitbat, is featured in Butterbeer advertisements. He even comes with a cheesy slogan.

** As mentioned above, Quodpot seems to be an Expy for UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball, 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.

* GoldenSnitch: The origins of the TropeNamer are detailed. The Snitch was not originally part of the game, but was introduced in the form of the Golden Snidget, a tiny round hummingbird whose incredible speed made it difficult to catch. The Chief of the Wizards' Council threw one into a match while offering 150 Galleons to the first player that could catch it. From then on, it became customary to include Golden Snidgets in the game, with them granted 150 points in honor of the original bet, but the dark side was that the Snidget tended to be killed in the process. Eventually their numbers dropped so low that inclusion of them was banned, and an artificial replacement was built, the Golden Snitch.

** The Thundellara Thunderers vs. The Wollongong Warriors. The rivalry is so bad that the very idea of referreeing a game between the two clubs is implied to be a ''nasty'' one. Heck, in wizarding Australia, the common reply to an unlikely claim or boast is "Yeah, and I think I'll volunteer to ref the next Thunderer-Warrior game."

* 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.

* 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.
