** Neville is an interesting subversion: his friends forgive him for his general klutziness, but some of the teachers give him a hard time. It all changes when he [[TookALevelInBadas takes some levels in Badass]].

** Voldemort. A classic literary main/foil.
** Snape is this by the end of the sixth book, though he becomes more a double by the end of the series.
** Interestingly, Snape's main shadow is Peter Pettigrew, as he is his own Main/Foil. Snape is a brave man whose undying love for Lily caused his remorse, and caused his HeelHeadTurn, leading to his role as a spy for the Order in the lines of the death eaters. Pettigrew is cowardly man, who backstabbed Lily and James from within his position as their secret keeper and order member, and then joined the death eaters.

* '''Lost Soul'''
** [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E12AmendingFences Moondancer]], an old friend of Twilight's in Canterlot who shared Twilight's love of books and lack of interest in socializing. Twilight has come out of her shell quite a bit since then, while Moondancer pulled further away, to the point of barely acknowledging other ponies at all.

Added DiffLines:


'''Literature/HarryPotter'''
*'''Magi'''
** Dumbledore fits this perfectly. He becomes a bit of a mentor as well during HBP, but become the Magi again when he dies.
*'''Mentor'''
** Sirius Black fits this to a t, down to the envy towards the protégé.
** Lupin can also fit here (mainly on the third book though he attempts to retain this position in the seventh book).
* '''Best Friend'''
** Ron and Hermione equally fit. Hermione also has shades of the lover, especially in the movies.
* '''Lover'''
** Ginny in the later books.
** Luna was this by the end of the fifth book, and continues to be a platonic version of this role for Harry.
** To draco, Myrtle becomes this in the sixth book.
** Kreacher is this to Regulus Black.
** Negini is this to Voldemort. Interesting subversion, as she has part of his soul.
* '''Joker'''
** Peeves, mainly in the first books, is a negative example.
** Fred and George are a positive example.
** Sirius black was a very negative example of this for Snape.
* '''Jester'''
** Dobby is this, mainly in the second book.
** Hagrid often plays this role, a trait Harry and his friends exploit at times.
** Collin Creevy is a minor example, though he fits the description.
** Ron and Tonks have shades of his role.
** Neville is an interesting subversion: his friends forgive him for his general klutziness, but some of the teachers give him a hard time. It all changes when he [[TookALevelInBadas takes some levels in Badass]].
* '''Nemesis'''
** Draco Malfoy is a textbook example, down to the sparring.
** Dudley also fits - especially in the last three books.
** Harry is this to an extent for Snape. Snape protects his lide fearlessly book after book. And yet- he hates his guts. (He has his reasons..)
* '''Investigator'''
** Snape played this role in the early books, as did most of the teachers.
** Hermione has distinct shades of this. Dumbledore lampshades it in the last books.
** Percy is a minor example.
* '''Pessimist'''
** Neville plays this role in the first book. He gets over it.
** Molly Weasley is a more distinct example.
* '''Psychic'''
** Trelawney is a weird play on this one. She isn't aawre of her true profecies, nor to their effect on Harry, but she presumes to be of great psychic powers that could benefit him.
** Firenze is more of a classic example, of the often withholding information variation.
* '''Shadow'''
** Voldemort. A classic literary main/foil.
** Snape is this by the end of the sixth book, though he becomes more a double by the end of the series.
** Interestingly, Snape's main shadow is Peter Pettigrew, as he is his own Main/Foil. Snape is a brave man whose undying love for Lily caused his remorse, and caused his HeelHeadTurn, leading to his role as a spy for the Order in the lines of the death eaters. Pettigrew is cowardly man, who backstabbed Lily and James from within his position as their secret keeper and order member, and then joined the death eaters.
* '''Lost Soul'''
** Draco fits here, mainly in the sixth book. He plays this role mostly for Snape, but also for Harry.
** Grindlewald is this to Dumbledore, though he is mostly his shadow.
* '''Double'''
** Very much a post-mortem kind of gig when it comes to Harry. James Potter, Lilly Potter, Sirius Black and Remus Lupin all fit.
** The epilogue can lead us to believe Snape has grown into this role after Harry had seen his memories (Harry even names one of his sons after him).
** Cedric Diggory playd this role before he died.
** Almost all of Ron's brothers are this to him.
** While Snape was clearly envious of James Potter's life, his real goal was to be more like Lily.
** Aberforth and Albus Dombledore are this to eachother.
