** Similar to Theodore Nott is Susan Bones who was revealed to have had a few family members who were killed by Death Eaters, including her uncle Edgar who was a member of the original Order of the Phoenix. This makes her a Hufflepuff who has some relevance to the plot, however she makes little to no appearances after OrderOfThePhoenix.
** Worse still is Susan's aunt Amelia Bones. When we meet her we see that she is very tough but equally fair and doesn't attempt to stack the trial against Harry like the other members of the court. She also has connections to the Order of the Phoenix due to being the head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement and thus the boss of many members, as well as the sister of past member Edgar Bones. Many fans thought she was going to be important in the following novels. Maybe even a possible Minister of Magic, but this did not come to pass.

** The Marauders. Many people rationalize their bullying of Snape by mentioning that he later became a Death Eater as if it excuses their actions.

** Fans of J.K. Rowling's other literary works, ''Literature/TheCasualVacancy'' and the ''[[Literature/CormoranStrikeNovels Cormoran Strike Trilogy]]'' like to assume that they take place in the Potterverse, just exclusively on the Muggle side. Mostly because they expand the world and there're no internal contradictions.

** [[DoubleStandard What does it say]] that fanon Vernon is a sadistic villain who enjoys abusing Harry, but fanon Petunia is a guilt-wracked {{Woobie}} who deep down wants to be the sweetest, most doting aunt ever? Also applies to Dudley to a lesser extent.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: There was very little to Cho Chang's character aside from her [[spoiler: grief over Cedric]] and her relationship with Harry. After Harry broke up with her, she was DemotedToExtra.

** How many fans saw Blaise Zabini when he came to prominence in the 6th novel. Fans were quite disappointed when he was revealed to be a generic Slytherin with FantasticRacism just like the others we've met.

** Fred and George, to the point that in many fics bashing the Weasleys, they're usually the only ones who don't seem like {{Complete Monster}}s.

*** On the other hand, rabid and crazy Snape fans insist that James and Sirius are {{Complete Monster}}s and that James bullied/raped/forced Lily into marrying him instead of the fanon!Snape they have in mind. Not to mention there's how they demonize Lily for not taking Snape's own bullcrap, openly saying she was a bad friend and a total whore for cutting her friendship with him ''when she had every reason in the world to do so''.

%%** Dumbledore.
%%** Mad-Eye.
** Dumbledore is an eccentric old wizard whose most desired gift is a pair of socks, who introduces himself in the series with the words "Nitwit. Blubber. Oddment. Tweak." yet still manages to be the only wizard to be feared by Voldemort.
** Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody, an Auror (sorta like a wizard S.W.A.T. team) with a magic eye (hence the name) that can move independently and see through anything, even the back on Moody's own head.



%%* DeconstructionFic: An absolute avalanche of them.

* AwesomeMusic: The music for the first few games was composed by Jeremy Soule, better known for writing music for blockbuster games such as ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', WorldOfWarcraft, MetalGear and more. [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames Say what you will about the quality of the gameplay]], but you can't deny that the score really captures Harry's sense of wonder as he comes to Hogwarts for the first time.

* AwesomeMusic: Courtesy of JohnWilliams above all; the music by the replacement composers is generally well-liked, too. The best can be found [[AwesomeMusic/JohnWilliams here]].
