* TakeThat: One of the wizard cards you earn in the third game is of Amarillo Lestoat, a "flamboyant American vampire" who wrote a book called ''A Vampire's Monologue'', which is "intended to bore the reader into a stupor, making him/her easier prey for vampires." If that isn't a parody of ''TheVampireChronicles''

* AttackReflector: The ''"Expelliarmus!"'' spell fulfills this function in the dueling [[Main/MiniGame minigame]] in ''Chamber of Secrets'' and the games that followed, instead of its canonical role as the disarming spell.

* Bowdlerise: In the second game:
** The character known in the books and films as "The Fat Lady" is instead called "The Pink Lady". {{Lampshaded}} in the fifth game, in which she is outraged at being called "The Fat Lady". This particular change is only present in the American version of the game, presumably due to [[SeparatedByACommonLanguage the word "fat" being considered more offensive in America than in Britain.]] But even then, it seems pretty unnecessary considering that the American version of the ''books'' left the term "Fat Lady" intact...
** Ron's line after the Ford Anglia leaves for the Forbidden Forest in the book and film are respectively "Dad'll kill me" and "Dad's gonna kill me". In the game, it becomes "Great. My dad won't be happy that I lost his flying car." You know, in case people might get confused and think Ron's father would actually kill him.
** The word "muggle" is inexplicably {{bowdlerized}}, so the in-universe accepted term of muggle-born is rendered awkwardly as "non-magical-born". Even ''Malfoy'' uses it, and he has no problem throwing around the word [[FantasticSlur mudblood]] in the books.

* MissingSecret: In the second PC game, the number of secret areas unlocked is shown in the pause menu. The final segment leading up to the Chamber of Secrets indicates there are four secret areas to be found when there are really only three. Then again, [[FridgeBrilliance perhaps the final secret area is the Chamber itself]].

It's possible the developers just missed an event flag for one of them.

** The Hinkypunks are made out of gas and only become solid when you shine the light from Lumos Duo onto them. However, you have to do it for at least fifteen seconds. [[DemonicSpiders While they're rapidly moving around and throw explosive fire at you.]]
