* HilariousInHindsight: In the first book, Ron sees in the Mirror of Erised himself as Head Boy and holding the Quidditch Cup. He manages both (almost, as he became a Prefect) in this book and film. Also a little [[HarsherInHindsight harsh]] considering that [[spoiler:Ron never attends his last year at Hogwarts, meaning that there's a chance that he could have qualified for Head Boy but still couldn't take the position]].

** In the book, [[CloudCuckoolander Luna]] non-chalantly claims that Rufus Scrimgeour the new Minister for Magic is a vampire. In the [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows seventh movie]], Scrimgeour is portrayed by Creator/BillNighy, who [[Film/UnderworldRiseOfTheLycans portrayed a vampire once]].

* ShipToShipCombat: This book caused the shipping wars in the fandom to go ''nuclear'', to the point of Emerson, the founder of Mugglenet, accusing some shippers of FanDumb in an interview. J.K. Rowling's reaction to this was akin to "Oh shit. Did you just say that? Do you want the rabid shippers to slit your throat in your sleep?" and she ''refused'' to call "a significant part of my fanbase 'deluded'". In spite of her refusal, angry fans made it seem like she had personally insulted them and spat into their faces.

** Lavender being played by a white actress was another one, mostly since she'd been entirely in the background with no lines in the previous films. Some felt it was pointless to change her back to white, while others felt it was more in line with the book[[note]]When Ron and Lavender are making out, Harry mentions that it's hard to tell whose hands were whose, implying Lavender to be white[[/note]]. A third camp felt the RaceLift was necessary to avoid UnfortunateImplications - since that would have made both Harry and Ron's {{Romantic False Lead}}s ethnic while their canon partners were white.

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: To say the least of the infamous bird attack scene. Many a RonTheDeathEater fanfics will have Ron attack Hermione in a fit of jealousy. Hermione attacks Ron, ''in canon'', and it is for the most part swept under the rug. [[note]]While both sides ''are'' portrayed as being petty, Hermione is still never called out on for resorting to violence.[[/note]]

* {{Narm}}: Hermione breaking down in tears in the film version after seeing Ron kissing Lavender.



* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Hermione during her feud with Ron. While what Ron did may have been a low blow, Hermione reacts to it with complete immaturity by assaulting Ron with birds. Her inability to take the high road was only HandWaved, as mentioned in the DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale entry.

Harry likewise seems to lose any sympathy for her when she invites Cormac [=MacLaggen=] to the Christmas party, solely to annoy Ron.
