* FridgeHorror: To anyone caught up on the Harry Potter books, the origin of the Scourers at first makes no sense, given we were told in an earlier book that the tragedy of the Witch Hunts, from actual wizard perspectives, is that ''they only killed Muggles'', as actual wizards [[RealityEnsues could easily get out of the mess with their magic]]. To the point mention is made of one NightmareFetishist witch who ''repeatedly'' got herself caught and burned because she [[TooKinkyToTorture enjoyed the sensation of flames under a Fire-Freezing Spell so much]]. The realization, and the dawning horror, is that the book was likely referring to the ''European'' Witch Hunts, which was purely an outburst of Muggle insanity and callous profiteering (see: the Witch Finder General). In America's Salem Witch Hunts, however, the whole affair was orchestrated ''by'' wizards, so those wizards and witches who got caught were probably attacked and rendered helpless ''by their own people'' first.

* NightmareFuel: The Nundu, which resembles a Leopard -- said to be utterly silent, gigantic, and able to wipe out entire villages just by ''breathing'' due to the diseases on its breath; it's so dangerous that the only successful kills have come from one ''hundred'' wizards working in concert. For comparison, that's ten times as many wizards as it takes to subdue the average ''dragon''.

** The Lethifold would also count, due to the fact that they sneak up on unsuspecting victims and smother them in their sleep. And ''digests them on the spot and leaves no evidence of their demise.'' They also have a [[ItCanThink deceptive cunning to boot]], that coupled with the fact that they can blend in with a fairly large range of things, [[ParanoiaFuel means that they could be anywhere.]]

* BrokenBase: The upcoming film adaptation. While some are excited, others are accusing it of being a cash-grab.
** Several long-time fans have taken issue with the lack of diversity in the casting choices of the main characters, especially since the film is not based on a book. Others have insisted that it isn't really that much of an issue because of the varied background characters in the trailer.
** One point of excitement is that we're finally being given an opportunity to see the rest of the world, not bound to the Trio and Voldemort's story. Others have been a little more skeptical, and want the movie to take place in different locations around the world.
** One rather sticky point of contention is the announcement that American wizards do not use the term {{Muggles}}, instead opting for "No-Maj". Some fans are far too devoted to the word "Muggle" to accept this. Others think that "Muggle" is such a British-sounding word that it makes perfect sense that it wouldn't be used overseas. Still others agree with the latter point but think that "No-Maj" is a weak alternative.

** Then there's the Quintapeds. According to legend they [[WasOnceAMan were once a family of wizards]] before they were [[BodyHorror transformed into monsters]] by a rival wizard family, who were in turn eaten by the beasts they created. Whether or not the legend is true, these five-legged carnivorous beasts rate five Xs, and are so dangerous the island they live on has been marked completely hazardous and enchanted so it can't be placed on maps. God help us all if those things are capable of breeding.

* BrokenBase: The upcoming film adaptation. While some are excited, others are accusing it of being a cash-grab. It's not helped that it's being made into a trilogy, despite being far shorter than any one ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' book. ([[Film/TheHobbit Gee, sounds familiar...]])
