* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Arthur Weasley, patriarch of the Weasley clan. Is he a loving husband and father whose Muggle-studying hobby is just an out-of-control quirk? Or is he a selfish man, clinging to a job that doesn't pay enough for him to provide adequately for his large family, just for the sake of greater license to indulge his fascination with Muggle culture?

''Goblet of Fire'' adds to the confusion when it's revealed that the hobby is specifically why his bosses refuse to promote him.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: In the film, when Harry wields the Sword of Gryffindor against the basilisk, there are several points where one can tell that Radcliffe was not wielding a sword so much as a ball-pointed prop.

** The Quidditch matches in general tend to be full of ConspicuousCGI, but ''Chamber of Secrets'' has a particularly cringeworthy shot where Harry flies through the Slytherin stands, causing the students there to have to jump out of his way. The actors are obviously digitally inserted into the scene and move in an incredibly unnatural way.

** The more you think about it, the more disturbing [[spoiler:[[MindRape the things Riddle does to Ginny]]]] becomes.

Added DiffLines:

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Upon its release, the film adaptation was almost universally praised as an EvenBetterSequel for its darker tone, improved effects, and better performances by the child actors compared to the first film. As the later films got darker and improved on the other aspects, people began to see the film as more tame and repetitive of the first.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The Anglia goes rattling off into the Forbidden Forest and is never seen again. Did it eventually run out of fuel/magic and 'die' in there somewhere? Or did Hagrid cunningly lure it out with a bucket of replacement parts and have it shipped to a Home for Possessed Appliances? The car simply never comes up in the series again.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Arthur Weasley, patriarch of the Weasley clan - loving husband and father who enjoys his Muggle studying hobbies a little too much, or a completely selfish and irresponsible man who made his large family suffer unnecessarily for years by way of a job that he clung too simply because it allowed him to indulge in his fascination of Muggle culture despite it not paying nearly enough to support his clan because he cared more about his hobby than he did about his wife and kids?

* FridgeBrilliance: Of ''course'' Lockhart would happily seize Ron's wand to try to cast a Memory Charm on him and Harry; of all of Ron's teachers, he's the only one that wouldn't have a clue that Ron's wand has been broken all school year because he's the only one who hasn't been teaching any actual magic.
** When Harry first sees Ron's room at the Burrow, Scabbers is curled up asleep in a sunny spot. ''Real'' rats warily avoid direct sunlight, as it's too bright for their dark-adapted eyes and makes it easy for predators to spot them. But Scabbers has a human's preference for light.

Added DiffLines:

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The [[ThePhoenix Fawkes]] animatronic. To put it into perspective, when Richard Harris first saw it, he initially thought it was a ''real bird'' and was impressed with how "well-trained" it was.
