* {{Abandonware}}: The older PC games use [=SafeDisk=] DRM, which means that on Window 7/8/8.1 as of a Sept 2015 Windows Update you need to manually enable a Windows service that's off by default in order to play it, and that on Windows 10 they are unplayable since that service has been dropped. EA has not digitally re-released the games, so the only official versions are the original discs.

There are also two Franchise/{{LEGO}} games, ''VideoGame/LEGOHarryPotter: Years 1-4'' and ''Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7''. This page, however, is dedicated strictly to the [=EA-produced=] ''Harry Potter'' games. And there's the unofficial parody game, ''VideoGame/{{Warthogs}}''.

** In the PC version of ''Philosopher's Stone'', when taking Norbert to the tower the goal is to avoid Filch and get back to the common room after handing Norbert to Charlie, hence Harry losing the invisibility cloak and going into the Forbidden Forest for his detention are not part of the game's storyline (although there is some DummiedOut dialogue suggesting that the Forbidden Forest part was dropped at some point). When going to the forbidden corridor Harry no longer has his invisibility cloak even though there's no reason for him to have lost it in this version, and the trio just "have to take their chances" with Filch.

* AmazingTechnicolorBattlefield: While more of a puzzle stage than a battlefield, the GBA version of ''Chamber of Secret'''s bean challenge rooms have backgrounds so colorful and wildly animated that some players become too nauseous to complete them.

* {{Hammerspace}}: This is apparently where Harry has put Norbert during the first part of The Sneak in the first PC game.



** Also getting caught by Filch or Mrs. Norris in the PC version of Sorcerer's Stone. More bizarre, perhaps, is that getting caught by Snape (or any prefect) in the sneaking sections of its GBA cousin will only lose you some points and force you to restart the area.

*** 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.]]

*** 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...

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: In ''Prisoner of Azkaban'' for home consoles (PS2, Xbox, GameCube), pots, vases, shrubs, etc. would typically spawn Every Flavor Beans when hit by Flipendo (primary attack) spell. However, there was a chance of them spawning small fruit cakes to provide minor healing if your character was wounded.
