* 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.

* SignatureScene: Literary example, although the film version remains faithful to the scene in question: to this day, Dumbledore's exposition to Harry near the end of the book is considered one of the most iconic of Dumbledore's speeches in the series.

** According to TheOtherWiki, several Christians -- those who don't think that these books teach Satanism -- compare the climax to John Bunyan's ''Literature/ThePilgrimsProgress'', a pinnacle of Christian literature.

* 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.

* 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.
