* HilariousInHindsight: In the novel, Hagrid expresses worry that Buckbeak might have encountered [[spoiler:werewolf!Lupin]] in his escape from Hogwarts. As the [[Film/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban movie]] illustrates, Hagrid need not have worried for Beaky's welfare in [[CurbStompBattle such a fight]].

* GrowingTheBeard: Many fans believe that this is the turning point for the series as a whole, citing the encounter at the Shrieking Shack, the darker emotions and actual feelings of loss Harry feels about his family (that had not been really explored in the previous books) and of course the BittersweetEnding [[spoiler:Sirius is proven innocent to Harry and Dumbledore but remains on the run alongside Buckbeak, and Lupin has to quit, while Harry worries about Trelawney's prophecy and the consequences of sparing Wormtail potentially bringing Voldemort back. Compared to the out-and-out positive victories in the first two books, it was bleaker and prepared for the gradual darkening of the remaining books]].

* AssPull:
** TheReveal that Sirius is [[spoiler: Harry's godfather]] if you think about it. When Harry was given to the Dursleys, Hagrid casually mentioned Sirius, implying that he wasn't accused of selling out the Potters yet, so it would beg the question why Harry wasn't given to him first.
** The Time Turner remains another one. It was foreshadowed but the late act revelation and rigid and hastily explained rules and potential can of worms it could open in terms of possibilities (which went unexplored in the books but not in the wider fandom), made everyone see it as an especially contrived DeusExMachina, that only works because of the EmotionalTorque of Harry unleashing his first fully grown Patronus.

* IdiotPlot: The denouement at the end depends on the following characters (Snape, Remus) suddenly forgetting the following details:[[spoiler:Remus is a werewolf, tonight is a full moon, and Remus has to take the Wolfsbane potion. Remus forgets about it entirely, despite the fact that he has lived with it all his life, which can only be explained in a character sense about how seeing Sirius and Peter Pettigrew on the Marauder's Map makes him think differently. Snape however comes ''to Remus room with the Potion'' (which he mentions during their confrontation) and despite having had a traumatic experience in his youth at the Shrieking Shack, still goes down there to meet Remus without having any real backup plan against a werewolf set to transform. Without this contrivance, Peter Pettigrew would not really be able to escape and Sirius have his name cleared]].

* OneSceneWonder: Aunt Marge only appears in one chapter, but still manages to be among the more despicable characters in the series, perhaps even more so than her brother Vernon.
