* "The Warlock's Hairy Heart" -- A young rich warlock fancies himself atuned to the fact that LoveHurts and [[BeatStillMyHeart cuts out his heart]] to save himself the hassle. Then he finds out that everyone thinks he's a loser for not having a girl and sets out to bag himself a trophy wife. This does not end well.

* UnreliableNarrator: Dumbledore's notes on the Tale of the Three Brothers contradict or omit some things we know he knew about the Hallows. This is lampshaded by the very Prologue of the book, which more or less tells you to make your own opinion as to why Dumbledore played ignorant.

Added DiffLines:

* RetCon: In earlier books, it was established that the Witch Trials of Muggledom had been utterly meaningless to wizards and witches, as their powers easily compensated for the fatal trials and punishments that Muggles used -- particular mention was given to how a simple "Flame-Freezing Charm" could effortlessly thwart an attempt to BurnTheWitch. This book instead asserts that the Witch Trials forced the magical people to go underground. Apparently, the retcon was triggered when an individual lambasted the author for "writing off" the very real suffering and torment that the real victims of the Witch Trials had undergone.


Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: It's pointed out by Dumbledore's InUniverse notes that this is why "The Wizard and the Hopping Pot" was both so negatively received when it was first written and why it has been subjected to more anti-Muggle rewrites; at the time of writing, helping Muggles out with magic was seen as akin to [[BurnTheWitch gathering firewood for your own pyre]] due to the persecution of wizards and witches by Muggles.

* NarrativeProfanityFilter; Dumbledore's commentary mentions that Lucius Malfoy had some choice things to say about him, "but as they consisted mainly of opprobrious remarks on my sanity, parentage, and hygiene, their relevance to this commentary is remote."

* EpicFail: The attempt at Hogwarts to put on a production of "The Fountain of Fair Fortune." The RomanceOnTheSet mentioned below led to a fierce duel between two of the actresses while an ashwinder was busy setting the place on fire. No further attempts at stage productions have been made at Hogwarts since.

The professor in charge of the play became a full-time playwriter after that, but never attempted to make the story again, thinking [[TheScottishTrope it was cursed]].

* "The Wizard and the Hopping Pot" -- A nice old wizard helps people with his magic pot. After his death, his [[{{Jerkass}} decidedly less nice]] son decides to help no-one and the pot treats him to some karma.

The tales are interspersed with commentary by Albus Dumbledore. J.K. Rowling herself said that ''[[Literature/TheCanterburyTales The Pardoner's Tale]]'' may have provided inspiration for "The Tale of the Three Brothers". Said ''Tale'' was adapted as [[Film/TheTaleOfTheThreeBrothers an independant short film]] in 2014 with J.K. Rowling's permission.
