** Hufflepuff and Slytherin surprisingly have the most vocal fans among the four Hogwarts houses--even though most of the villains are Slytherins, and Hufflepuff has such a mediocre reputation that it's the TropeNamer for [[HufflepuffHouse a trope about insignificant characters]]. Many fans seem to feel responsible for reversing both Houses' in-universe {{Flanderization}}; if you meet any self-identified Hufflepuff or Slytherin fans, you can look forward to some long, detailed lectures about how there's more to both Houses than most people think. (The short version is: [[BewareTheNiceOnes Hufflepuff is underestimated]], and [[DarkIsNotEvil Slytherin is just misunderstood]])

** After ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild The Cursed Child]]'' was released, it's impossible to take the [[http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Trolley_witch Trolley Witch]] seriously knowing that she's thrown exploding pumpkin pastries at students, done... ''[[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow something]]'' with the chocolate frogs, and [[spoiler: forcing students to remain on the train by turning her hands into spikes]]. Just TRY and watch any of her scenes without cracking up.

* AnticlimaxBoss: [[spoiler:Voldemort]]. To be fair, the gang did mutilate his Seven Evil Artifacts Of Power, [[spoiler:even the unintentionally created one]], causing him [[VillainousBreakdown to freak out]]. Furthermore, it is heavily implied that the greatest thing Harry feared about [[spoiler:Voldemort]] was his massive knowledge about the world and its magic and how he could do anything with it; once [[spoiler:Voldemort]] is shown to be a moronic killer with a pointy stick (and little willpower), Harry overcomes his inner fears, and all that's left to do is zap the bugger.

** [[PsychoForHire Fenrir Greyback]] is a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]], but unlike werewolves who go helplessly violent in wolf form, he bites people in human form just for the [[CardCarryingVillain pleasure of ruining their lives]]. His actions are all-but-explicitly stated to be pedophilic in nature, based on what he did to Lupin. In addition, he is a [[ImAHumanitarian cannibal]], in both wolf and human form. He's shown trying to eat Harry at the Battle on the Astronomy Tower, wants to eat Hermione when Bellatrix is done torturing her, and attacks Lavender at the Battle of Hogwarts. He shows absolutely no remorse for doing any of these things, and [[SavageWolves takes a perverse delight in the damage he causes]]. The only reason he showed up at the Battle of Hogwarts was to engage in [[WouldHurtAChild raping and eating children, after all]].

** [[PsychoForHire Fenrir Greyback]] is a savage [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]], but unlike werewolf]] who enthusiastically supports Voldemort's regime for the chance to indulge his violent nature. While many werewolves who go helplessly violent in wolf form, he bites people in sequester themselves from human society and try to take precautions to avoid hurting others on a full moon, Fenrir was the one who turned Remus Lupin into a werewolf, taking delight in turning others and ruining their lives; [[WouldHurtAChild especially children]], who Fenrir has a disturbing fondness for attacking. In addition, Fenrir is [[ImAHumanitarian a cannibal]] in both human and wolf form just and expresses a desire to eat Harry in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'' after savagely mauling Bill Weasley and leaving him for dead. Fenrir even states he participates in the attack to get his claws on as many children as he can. In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'', Fenrir serves Voldemort's regime by helping in rounding up the "unclean" wizards or those who will not submit and expresses a desire to eat Hermione after Bellatrix is finished torturing her. Unlike the gentle Remus Lupin, Fenrir requires no full moon to be a monster and [[CardCarryingVillain pleasure of ruining their lives]].

* AbandonedCatchphrase: Harry had the habit of saying 'Don't mention it' whenever he helped someone. It wasn't heard again after Chamber of Secrets, when the films took a much darker tone.

** Hermione can often be depicted as self-righteous and abusive towards Ron. Not helping matters was Hermione's borderline sociopathic Judge, Jury, and Executioner mentality in ''Order of the Phoenix'' (particularly, disfiguring Marietta and the implication that she [[spoiler: knowingly allowed Umbridge to get raped by the Centaurs]]).
