* Hermione's (relatively minor and thankfully averted at the end of the novel) SanitySlippage because of how much work she's taken on. She loves school and she loves learning and she wants to remain top of every class, but the poor girl is clearly cracking under all the pressure. Add in [[VitriolicBestBuds her spats with Ron]], her trying to help Hagrid defend Buckbeak, and the fear of a mass-murderer being on the loose and after one of her best friends (which Harry himself is having to deal with), and it's frankly a miracle she's still sane by the end of the year!

* Hermione's (relatively minor and thankfully averted at While Harry obviously has the end hardest time of the novel) SanitySlippage because trio (in dealing with the fact that a mass murderer is out to get him and said murderer was his parents best friend), Ron and Hermione don't have it great either. Ron is dealing with the fact that his pet (unaware of how it's actual identity) is supposedly dying, something he doesn't get much work she's taken on. She loves school and she loves learning and she wants to remain top of every class, but the poor girl is clearly cracking sympathy for. Hermione, meanwhile, has been taking more lessons than usual. She's no doubt struggling under all the pressure. Add in [[VitriolicBestBuds her spats with Ron]], her trying to help Hagrid defend Buckbeak, and the fear of a mass-murderer being on the loose and after one of her best friends (which Harry himself is having to deal with), pressure, and it's frankly a miracle she's still sane by the end of the year!

* In the film, Harry ''cries'' for the first time. "He was their friend...and he betrayed him... [[SuddenlyShouting HE WAS THEIR FRIEND!]]" Made even worse that Harry practically wishes death on his godfather for something he didn't do [[spoiler: which is, betraying and killing his parents.]]

* A rather subtle, but effective, moment comes in ''Prisoner of Azkaban'' when Harry catches himself half-hoping to be overwhelmed by a Dementor since, horrible as the experience is, it's the only time he's ever heard his parent's voices. Mind you, this becomes FridgeHorror when you learn that [[spoiler: Harry has a piece of Voldemort inside him]] and realize that [[spoiler: it isn’t ''Harry’s'' memory of his father telling Lily to take Harry and run, and neither is the one of Lily screaming...it's Voldemort's]].

* Another somewhat subtle one is when Harry is learning how to cast the Patronus Charm and can't focus on a happy memory hard enough, he's struggling to find a happier memory each time until finally he ends up thinking that if something simple but happy can't help him, nothing will.

* During Harry's first tutoring session with the dementor!boggart, Harry hears his mother and father's voice for the first time in a decade. When Harry tells Lupin about it, he freezes and whispers, "You heard James?" He must have missed his best friend so much.

* JK Rowling intended the Dementors to represent clinical depression, so the description of Hagrid in Azkaban becomes especially harrowing. He wasn't there for very long, but the presence of the Dementors made him relive his worst memories: the death of his father, the abandonment of his mother, being expelled from Hogwarts, etc. It wasn't until he left that he returned to his usual jovial self. His terror of the place partly informs why he doesn't just help Buckbeak escape into the wild. "I can't ever go back to Azkaban..."
