->''"Harry Potter... 'The Boy Who Lived'... -come to die."''
-->--'''Voldemort'''

The GrandFinale film of the Film/HarryPotter series, ''Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'', was split into two films (''Part 1'' and ''Part 2''), to cram in as much of the material as possible - and even that barely scratched the surface, [[FanDumb according to some fans]].

Harry, Ron and Hermione's only hope to defeat Voldemort is destroying all his [[SoulJar Horcruxes]] as he [[AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs infiltrates]] [[TheGovernment the Ministry of Magic.]] Nowhere is safe, all of their previous support is gone, and [[WarIsHell it's a]] [[AnyoneCanDie complete madhouse]] at Hogwarts.

Both of the movies were critically acclaimed. ''Part 1'' was the third highest-grossing movie of the year[[note]]behind WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 and Film/AliceInWonderland[[/note]] but had the highest opening, plus it was nominated for two Oscars. ''Part 2'', on the other hand, brought the house down. It was one of the best reviewed movies of the year and grossed '''''over a billion dollars'''''[[note]]It is the 9th film to achieve this feat.[[/note]] and is one of the most commercially successful movies ever.

[[AndAnotherThing Oh, and]] the split between ''Part 1'' and ''Part 2'' is at the end of chapter 23.
!!Tropes in these films:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1]]
* ActorAllusion: The café has a promotional poster for ''Theatre/{{Equus}}'' on the wall. It's hard to see in the movie itself, but visible in the special features.
* ActionFilmQuietDramaScene: The scene where Hermione talks about visiting the forest of Dean with her parents when she was little.
-->'''Hermione:''' Maybe we should just stay here, Harry... grow old.
* AdaptationExplanationExtrication:
** Remus and Tonks in a blink-and-you-miss-it scene where Tonks is apparently about to announce her pregnancy too, but is interrupted. Their relationship is not mentioned again, until [[spoiler: the resurrection stone scene]] in part 2 when Harry is magically aware of their son Teddy's existence.
** A scene explaining the Taboo (Ron mentions hearing about it in the Ministry) was cut from Deathly Hallows – Part 1, so it's never explained despite its effects showing up in two plot-critical moments (the book-verbatim Death Eater attack in the café, and a new change to the Lovegood house scene where Xenophilius says Voldemort's name to summon Death Eaters), making them seem like Diabolus ex Machina rather than a jinx. It also saves the writers some trouble, because through the movies they have been downright spotty about wizards saying Voldemort's name, a feature which was important in the books.
** The reason why Harry doesn't realize Bathilda Bagshot is possessed by Nagini in the seventh film is because he is a Parselmouth — snake-talk appears to him as human speech, unlike the gibberish it is to others. In the movie, we hear him and possessed Bathilda talk in Parseltongue from an observer's viewpoint.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Unlike his counterpart in the books, who was definitely under the Imperius Curse, Pius Thicknesse is implied to have joined the Death Eaters and Voldemort of his free will.
** He seems very tense compared to the other Death Eaters in the room, most noticeably when Nagini is slithering by his feet. It can be inferred that he may have been coerced into cooperating against his will, while not actually being under the Imperius Curse.
* AdultFear: Induced during the fight with Nagini, Harry falls through a wall and Nagini follows him; the room at the other side? A nursery... now with a GIANT snake in it. Eep...
** It's also an allusion to the fact that Harry was a baby in Godric's Hollow, and thus it's not the first time he was involved in a fight in a nursery there.
* ANaziByAnyOtherName: The movie shows a snippet of [[spoiler:Hermione's torture from the book, except instead of just hearing her disembodied screams, we also see Belatrix doing...something with the dagger in her hand to Hermione's arm. When we see her arm, we can see that Lestrange carved "Mudblood" into the inside of Hermione's forearm, much like how the Nazis tattooed numbers into the forearms of the Jews in concentration camps]].
* ArtifactOfDoom: The locket; the locket caused Harry and Ron's tempers to flare and tried to tempt Ron into killing Harry when it was opened by preying on his fears and jealousy.
* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: Of all of the many hundreds of Ministry of Magic workers the trio could have used for polyjuice potion, Hermione becomes a petite brunette, Harry becomes an average height guy with black hair, and Ron is, wait for it, a tall ginger. Justified since the trio are implied to have scouted the Ministry before going in and picked which people they were going to impersonate, though arguably the sensible thing to do would've been to find people who looked nothing like them.\\\
In an example of FridgeBrilliance, though, it is established in both the books and the film that when the polyjuice potion starts to wear off, for a few minutes you get a blend of the real and disguised features. By picking people that look like them, they can squeeze a few extra minutes out of the potion. Also, since they only get one shot at this, they need to be as comfortable as possible -- they need a form they can quickly adapt to. This is noted in the books by Hermione when she polyjuices into [[spoiler:Bellatrix]], and by Harry when he polyjuices into a plump red-haired boy to resemble the Weasleys.
* AxCrazy: Continuing from the last two movies, Bellatrix Lestrange.
* BerserkButton
** Mrs. Weasley always seemed so kind and matronly, but then someone made the mistake of [[spoiler:threatening her daughter after her son had died]]. Yeah... not a good idea.
** The locket Horcrux taunts Ron with the idea that Harry and Hermione might be sneaking around behind his back. [[UnstoppableRage He doesn't take this very well.]]
** Ron gets ''very'' angry when Hermione is attacked by Goyle.
** Harry gets another one thanks to Umbridge flat out mentioning that a Muggle-Born witch [[BlatantLies isn't a witch at all]]. "You're lying, Dolores. And [[IronicEcho you must not tell lies]]."
** Voldemort had a couple of them, most notably when he found out the the trio stole [[spoiler: the Hufflepuff Cup]] from Gringotts. He killed the goblin who brought him the message and anyone else who was around and couldn't get away fast enough.
** An overlooked reaction was Harry to seeing Ginny almost killed by Bellatrix. Originally going after Voldemort, he changed direction upon seeing that, but was passed by Molly, described above.
* BlingBlingBang: Voldemort contemptuously snaps off the ornate silver handle of Lucius Malfoy's wand when he "borrows" it to use against Harry Potter. [[FauxSymbolism Remind you of anything?]]
* BreatherEpisode: This film notably takes a break from frantically trying to cram as much plot as it can into the movies, instead focusing on long, atmospheric shots of the characters and scenery. It really emphasizes how the PowerTrio are now on their own.
* BrickJoke: After Ron leaves in the seventh movie, Hermione ties her scarf to a tree just before she and Harry disapparate. They apparate back into the same location and run into a gang of Snatchers. The leader is wearing Hermione's scarf. It is also the same Snatcher who smelled her perfume while walking through the woods.
* BrokenHeel: While rushing to aid Harry in Godric's Hollow, Hermione trips over a pile of books on the floor ([[BadassBookworm ironically for her]]).
* CliffHanger: At the end, [[spoiler:Voldemort obtaining the Elder Wand from Dumbledore's grave]].
* ContinuityNod: When Harry and Hermione arrive in Godric's Hollow, Hermione says she still thinks they should have used polyjuice potion. (In the book, they do use polyjuice potion, but in the film its cheaper and more moving for the graveyard scene, to use the actual actors.)
* CrapsackWorld: Seen when the Golden Trio are wandering through Britain, with SceneryPorn of beautiful yet cold and empty fields and highways, the scorched remains of a caravan park where the Death Eaters have struck, and their dark contrails overhead.
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler: Dobby.]]
* DiegeticSwitch: "O'Children" starts out playing crackling on the radio, then fades into clear background music when Harry and Hermione start dancing.
* DidTheyOrDidntThey: Harry and Hermione, type 3. Part 1 builds up as much WillTheyOrWontThey tension as possible between two characters who are in love with [[OfficialCouple other people]], then ''Part 2'', with its coy references to Harry talking in his sleep, seems to invite the audience to ponder what's likely to happen when you leave two hormonal teenagers who know they might be killed any day alone in a tent for several weeks. (Especially when [[TheirFirstTime they're probably both virgins]].) For [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation a certain section of fandom]], it possibly qualifies as FridgeBrilliance.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Two major ones:
** The scene where Hermione is brutally interrogated by Bellatrix Lestrange. It happens offscreen in the book, but you get to see plenty of it in the film adaptation, and it strongly resembles rape.
** The Nazi-esque posters and pamphlets being printed from the same film. [[spoiler: Another Nazi-esque bit of symbolism is Bellatrix carved Hermione's arm with "Mudblood", which is reminiscent of the serial numbers tattooed onto the forearms of interns in concentration camps.]]
* DownerEnding: Although our heroes have escaped from Malfoy Manor, they are broken by the setback (especially poor Hermione, who was brutally interrogated by Bellatrix) and Dobby [[spoiler:is dead. Also, to top it all off, Voldemort has found the Elder Wand, which apparently guarantees that Voldemort will triumph over Harry and his friends. Oh, and the Ministry of Magic is still under the control of the Death Eaters]].
* DragonHoard: When breaking into the [=LeStrange=] vault to steal the golden Cup of Helga Hufflepuff, Harry, Ron and Hermione have to pass one of Gringotts' captive guard dragons.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:Dobby in the book and movie, after he was stabbed by Bellatrix.]] "Such a beautiful place, to be with friends..." *sobsob*
* EatTheCamera: In ''Deathly Hallows Part 1'', Voldemort kills Charity Burbage, a professor at Hogwarts whom he considered repugnant for supporting Muggles. He tells his huge pet snake Nagini that "dinner is ready", and she slithers across the table, until the camera enters her mouth as she starts devouring Burbage's corpse.
* EurekaMoment: Hermione gets one while she's cutting Harry's hair.
* {{Fanservice}}: The nude kissing scene between Horcrux!Harry and Horcrux!Hermione is this to male and female fans alike.
* FascinatingEyebrow: Emma Watson finally managed control over her infamous overacting eyebrows to be able to just raise one to punctuate the joke of Ron trying to win Hermione over by "voting" for her idea to see Xenophilius Lovegood.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Voldemort has shades of this, during the meeting at Malfoy Manor.
* FollowTheWhiteRabbit: The doe Patronus.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Harry [[spoiler:thinks that there might be a Horcrux made in Godric's Hollow]].
** During the "Tale of the Three Brothers" segment, the elder wand resembles Dumbledore's Wand.
* FullNameUltimatum: Hermione:
-->"Harry Potter, you give me my wand!"
* GottaCatchThemAll / GottaKillThemAll: The Horcruxes, and then the Hallows.
* GoryDiscretionShot: Inverted and played straight with the discovery of [[spoiler:Bathilda Bagshot's body]] in ''Deathly Hallows – Part 1''. While you don't see her body, as it is being [[spoiler:used by Nagini like a suit]], the indication that [[spoiler:Bagshot was brutally murdered]] is the rather large and gruesome pool of blood dripping from the ceiling of her house.
* GreenEyedMonster: The locket turns Ron into this by inflaming his insecurity about his relationship to Hermione, which sparks jealousy over her appearing to dote on Harry. Part of his motivation for abandoning them is seeing them coming back from the close call with the Snatchers and thinking they've been doing... something else.
* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: The snatchers fail to confiscate Ron's Deluminator and Harry's piece of mirror, despite the fact that one is a magical device and the other a potential weapon. Perhaps justified in that the wizarding world tends to focus on spells and wands, rather than the vast number of different weapons that Muggles use.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Hermione's bag.
* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: The waitress at the diner is in the kitchen with her back turned and headphones playing music on, and doesn't hear the loud and destructive wand battle between the Trio and a pair of Death Eaters.
* HearingVoices: Ron and the Put-Outer.
* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: What ultimately drives Ron to [[spoiler:destroy the locket]] is [[spoiler:the soul fragment presenting itself as Harry and Hermione mocking him and then making out]], the very thing it was driving him to think was happening earlier on.
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: Scabior, the head Snatcher. After he captures Hermione, calls her "My lovely" and sniffs her hair. The actor Nick Moran told Entertainment Weekly they cut out his line: "You're going to be my favorite."
* InsistentTerminology: When Dobby refers to Mundungus Fletcher as a thief, he insists that he is instead a "purveyor of rare and wondrous objects."
* IntroDump[=/=]{{Infodump}}: Scene Two, when Bill Weasley introduces himself, his injury from Grayback ''and'' his impending wedding, as well as Tonks and Lupin already being married. Partly justified, in the sheer number of subplots left to die in the previous movies. Particularly notable because none of those characters pop up again during that specific film.
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: Harry, Hermione, Ron, and Kreacher, after capturing Mundungus, pretty much used this trope to force him to reveal who he sold Slytherin's Locket to, and then (although by accident rather than deliberately, due to the shock of the revelation of who he sold it to) scalded him.
* LamePunReaction: Never mind the fact that his brother just had his ear cut off; Fred is disgusted beyond belief that, with the world of ear-related humor before him, George went with holey.
** This may be a StealthPun on St George, patron saint of England
* LeaveYourQuestTest: Depressed after Ron walks out on them and Voldemort's forces are all-powerful, Hermione suggests that she and Harry just stay hidden by the river where they're camped out and [[ShipTease grow old together]]. It's doubtful she's serious, but it's a telling moment for this normally driven character.
* MediumBlending: An animated segment for "The Tale of the Three Brothers", the legendary story of the Deathly Hallows. It's CGI that looks like the fantasy Creator/JimHenson productions like ''Film/TheDarkCrystal'' or ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}''.
* MusicalSpoiler: Whenever the Slytherin locket is influencing someone's behavior, there is a characteristic, high-pitched noise. [[spoiler:The noise appears when Harry talks to Bathilda Bagshot in her home, hinting early that she is in fact Nagini.]]
* ObliviousJanitorCut: While the hero trio is attacked at the diner, the waiter/cook is in the kitchen, blithely listening to music on her headphones.
* PermaStubble
** Harry gets one while wandering around, away from civilization, for weeks at a time. At one point, we see Hermione cutting his hair (manually, with a pair of scissors), so he may also have shaving equipment that, because of his circumstances, he can't use daily. Or maybe Daniel Radcliffe didn't want to grow his facial hair out further, but the director wanted another visual indicator of Harry's "on the run" status.
** Lucius Malfoy from both ''Hallows'' films, his dishevelment symbolizing how far he's fallen from Voldemort's graces.
* POVCam: As Harry is dragged out of the frozen pond.
* [[spoiler:SacrificialLion: Dobby and Mad-Eye Moody.]]
* SchrodingersCast: [[spoiler:Peter Pettigrew's death is omitted. He doesn't return in ''Part 2'', and it's never mentioned if he dies.]] Also a case of KarmaHoudini.
* ShootTheDog: At the start, before the crew are about to fly off, Harry lets Hedwig go. She comes back and attacks one of the Death Eaters chasing Harry during the Battle for Little Whinging, and ends up [[TakingTheBullet taking a Killing Curse]].
* SleepCute: Ron and Hermione are asleep next to each other, with their hands lying so they appear to be reaching out for each other. Given a horrifying echo in Part II when [[spoiler:TogetherInDeath Remus and Tonks' bodies are laid out in the exact same way]].
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike[=/=]LikeFatherLikeSon: In a deleted scene from ''Hallow, Part 1'', Arthur Weasley echos Ron's comment that Yaxley should try an umbrella if it's raining in his office.
* TookALevelInBadass: Ron takes a small but noticeable level between ''Half-Blood Prince'' and ''Deathly Hallows – Part 1'', possibly in response to some fans criticising how he was made into a bit too much of a comic relief in the previous six movies. In ''Hallows'' he becomes a more [[TheLancer mature and reliable sidekick]], and some of his greatest moments in the last two movies even have him acting more confident and determined than in the books. [[spoiler:After destroying the locket in the book, Ron is understandably upset and is comforted by Harry, while in the film he's rather upbeat about it, and casually quips that there are now "only three to go!"]]
* ZipMeUp: Ginny to Harry.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2]]
* AdaptationExpansion
** The final fight between Harry and Voldemort. In the books, Harry appears from beneath his invisibility cloak in the midst of the battle to deliver a ShutUpHannibal to Voldemort, just before the Dark Lord [[spoiler:tosses a killing curse at him, which backfires horribly. ''Again'']]. In ''Deathly Hallows – Part 2'', the fight sprawls the entire breadth of the castle, from Voldemort stalking him in the hallways, battling in the Astronomy Tower, and pulling a FreefallFight before landing in the courtyard, where they engage in a BeamOWar duel which Harry wins when his Expelliarmus reaches Voldy. [[RuleOfCool Yes, it is just as epic as it sounds]].
** To a lesser degree, also [[spoiler:the fight between [[SupportingLeader Neville]] and [[RightHandAttackDog Nagini]]]]. In the book, [[spoiler:Neville decapitates her without resistance from her in a moment of surprise, albeit whilst [[IncendiaryExponent on fire]]]]. In the film, [[spoiler:he decapitates her [[ThwartedCoupDeGrace mid-launch]] [[BigDamnHeroes at a helpless Ron and Hermione]]]]. Yes, [[RuleOfCool also extremely satisfying]].
** We also get to see Ron and Hermione enter [[spoiler:the Chamber of Secrets]], showing a scene only referred to in the books.
* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: The material is re-introduced in several ways in Hallows Part 2: merely knowing that Bellatrix was afraid of what they might have taken from her vault lets him know a Horcrux is there, and once they get inside, Harry's scar gives him a Spider-Sense, letting him track down the object in question (a cup, theoretically Helga Hufflepuff's but maybe anybody's). This same ability allows him to learn that Nagini is a Horcrux, and another is connected to Rowena Ravenclaw, and later to sense the presence of the diadem in the Room of Requirement, hidden in a velvet jewel box instead of sitting on a warlock statue.
** Dumbledore is set up over the course of parts one and two as being not as kind and fatherly as he appeared. Now, in the book, all of this finally comes together and Dumbledore is revealed to still have been a good man who in the end essentially arranges Voldemort's downfall. But in the movie, most of his conversation with Harry at King's Cross is cut, and the subplot is left dangling. (Conversely, most of the explicit references to Dumbledore's dark side, such as his brief alliance with Grindelwald and his complicity in the death of his sister, don't get a mention either, so all that's left are a few vague hints of wrongdoing.)
* AntiClimax: Averted in the film - in the book the climax takes about three pages or so. In the film, however, Harry and Voldemort have an epic duel for five minutes, [[spoiler:with Voldemort flying around all over Hogwarts and Harry holding on for dear life. Then their wands induce a [[CallBack Priori Incantatem-like]] BeamOWar, and they duel for almost a minute before Neville cuts Nagini in two, which causes Voldemort to disintegrate due to all the Horcruxes being destroyed and his strength weakening to the point where his killing curse slowly rebounds on him.]]
* BackForTheFinale: Pomona Sprout, Ollivander, the Sorting Hat, even the Chamber of Secrets and the Basilisk (though only in skeletal form).
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Harry invokes this to Voldemort before chucking them both off of a cliff.
-->'''Harry:''' C'mon Tom. Lets finish this the way we started. ''[[TakingYouWithMe Together.]]''
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:Neville jumping out to kill Nagini with the Sword of Gryffindor.]]
* TheBigDamnKiss: Between Ron and Hermione [[spoiler:after destroying the Hufflepuff's Cup Horcrux and being engulfed in a torrent of water caused by it]].
* BigNo: Happens a lot. Ginny Weasley cries a couple of rather impressive ones when it is believed that Harry, who she's been deeply in love with through the whole series, is dead.
* BondVillainStupidity: While Voldemort has insisted that he has to be the one to kill Harry, evidently that does not extend to personally making sure he's absolutely dead.
** In the climax, [[spoiler:Voldemort has Harry tied up in his robes. When we get back to the duo after a cut to the hunt for Nagini, he is just ''slapping him''. Harry, the boy he had set out to kill, is defenseless in front of him, and he's resorting to slapping when he could kill him at any time with the Elder Wand]]. This may, however, qualify as a result of [[spoiler:his VillainousBreakdown]].
* CallBack: When Sirius points out that "we're here" - meaning Harry's heart - it's a call back to when he said the same thing at the end of ''Film/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban''.
** Similarly, a darker version of this trope is done with the Grey Lady (the tower ghost Luna takes Harry to see), who mimics a lot of Moaning Myrtle's gestures to Ron back in the second film, ''while a Horcrux was the topic of discussion in both situations'', a Horcrux moreover that directly relates to the character on an important and personal level (the diary's personal thing being that Myrtle's death is how it was created), possibly showing that a Horcrux is extremely disturbing to the dead.
* CleavageWindow: On Hermione when she arrests their fall in Gringots, due to her wearing Bellatrix's clothes.
* CombatTentacles: During the final fight between Harry and Voldemort, Voldemort briefly uses the longer parts of his robes to ensnare Harry.
* DeathByAdaptation
** [[spoiler:Scabior, Griphook, Gregory Goyle and Pius Thicknesse. Possibly Fenrir Greyback; it's really unclear.]]
** [[spoiler:Lavender]]'s death, confirmed by WordOfGod.
* DeflectorShields: Hogwarts is surrounded by one during the Battle of Hogwarts.
* DemotedToExtra: Anybody who isn't Harry, Ron, Hermione, Voldemort, Snape, [=McGonagall=], Neville, or Luna only ends up with a couple of lines or a one-scene minimum.
** Dumbledore (posthumously) can arguably be an aversion of this, considering he has an entire five-minute scene with Harry (taking place in Harry's mind) as well as appearing prominently in flashbacks, and more lines than most of the other characters.
** Hagrid in particular only appears near the end of the movie, where he is found captured by the Death Eaters without an explanation and carries Harry back to the castle after Voldemort supposedly kills him. Then, after the battle, he reunites with Harry.
* DissonantSerenity: Neville gets this after waking up from Voldemort's knock-out blow. It's so bad, he's actually completely oblivious to another fighter being thrown back not more than 3 feet from where he is. Did we mention that the guy getting thrown back was ''on fire?''
* ExactWords: In Bellatrix's vault:
-->'''Griphook:''' I said I'd get you in. I didn't say anything about getting you out.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath:
** [[spoiler: Snape]]'s death scene is even more graphic than the book, with Voldemort slashing [[spoiler: Snape]]'s throat open with Sectumsempra then having Nagini {{finish him}}, with blood splattering on the walls. And this is coming from filmmakers who cut [[spoiler: Wormtail]]'s death scene due to "suicide" (which it technically wasn't) being too "graphic."
** It's debatable as to which is more graphic. In the book Nagini bit him several times and, while no blood is specifically stated to have splattered, it did gush from his mouth, ears, nose and eyes, along with the memory that Harry has to collect and put into a phial for evidence. And there is a discretion shot in the movie.
** From the same film, [[spoiler: Bellatrix's]] death. In the book, [[spoiler: Molly]] simply hit her with an unidentified spell that killed her instantly. In the film, a spell causes her corset to tighten (likely crushing her internal organs and ribs) and is hit by another that blows her into embers.
* FinishHim: [[spoiler:Voldemort says this to his pet Nagini after slashing Snape's throat open with Sectumsempra at the boathouse.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}} The music that plays at the very beginning while Snape is looking over a decrepit Hogwarts is [[spoiler:[[OneWomanWail Lily's theme]]]].
* FullNameUltimatum: Luna:
-->"Harry Potter, you listen to me right now!"
* GoodOldFisticuffs: When Harry and Voldemort are fighting in the Astronomy Tower, [[VillainousBreakdown Voldemort is so angry that he resorts to slapping Harry around]] and [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown kicking him as he tries to recover]].
* GoryDiscretionShot: [[spoiler:Severus Snape's death.]] Even then it's a NothingIsScarier moment as we see only a view through a dirty window, but can hear clearly the sound of [[spoiler:the snake striking him again and again]].
* HookedUpAfterwards: We never really see Harry and Ginny have a proper relationship in the films - they do towards the end of the book ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'', and Harry breaks it off for ''Deathly Hallows'' because he doesn't want Ginny involved in the danger. However in the films we just see longing glances and essentially two kisses, leading to a HookedUpAfterwards for the time skip.
* IAlwaysWantedToSayThat: Said by Professor [=McGonagall=] of all people, after using the Piertotum Locomotor spell. Considering [[SealedArmyInACan what]] [[AnimatedArmor it does]], can you blame her? Especially cute is the schoolgirl giggle she gives after delivering the line.
* IJustWantToBeFree: The Gringott's Dragon, [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds poor thing]].
* LampshadeHanging:
-->'''Hermione:''' We've got to plan, we've got to figure it out! \\
'''Harry:''' Hermione, [[FinaglesLaw when have any of our plans ever actually worked?]] [[ZanyScheme We plan]], we get there, [[DespiteThePlan all hell breaks loose]].
* LiterallyShatteredLives: [[spoiler:An [[MamaBear enraged Molly Weasley]] casts a curse on Bellatrix that freezes her in place and ''dessicates'' her... followed by a blast that shatters her into a million pieces.]]
** And later, [[spoiler: Harry does the same to Voldemort]].
* LoopholeAbuse: Done by Griphook [[spoiler:after he double crosses the trio during the raid on Bellatrix's vault at Gringotts]].
-->'''Griphook:''' [[spoiler:I said I'd get you in. I never said anything about letting you out!]]
* MillionMookMarch: Averted when Voldomort's men think they've won they just shuffle wearily across the bridge to Hogwarts, exhausted after fighting all night.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: The way the movie handles [[spoiler:Neville killing Nagini]]. If it wasn't for the slow motion, lack of sound, and the SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome, it probably would have turned out much more embarrassing than it looked.
* NoBodyLeftBehind: [[spoiler:Bellatrix and Voldemort.]]
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Voldemort vs. Harry in the expanded fight scene. As Voldemort's wand won't work, he retorts to using his fists to give Harry a pummeling.
* OhCrap: The students gasp when Snape pulls out his wand but back away, screaming at the sight of Professor McGonagall; they back away even more when she fires her first spell, for they can see that shit has hit the fan and will not be coming off of it for a while.
* OneWomanWail: Lily's new {{Leitmotif}}.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Luna putting her foot down: "HARRY POTTER, YOU LISTEN TO ME RIGHT NOW!"
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Kelly [=MacDonald=] plays the Grey Lady with an English accent but when she becomes enraged, her natural Scottish accent comes out.
** This is also a cunning sly move on the casting agents' part; Rowena Ravenclaw is from "the glens" which are in Scotland, so it makes sense that her daughter would, in turn, be Scottish.
* PietaPlagiarism: [[spoiler:Snape cradling Lily's dead body.]]
* PrecisionFStrike: As mentioned just above this sentence, Molly Weasley's line from the novel is kept intact.
* RedemptionRejection: In the film, Draco is called by his parents to join the Death Eaters, and he gets several long seconds of worry before siding with them. [[spoiler:"Them" being his parents, not the Death Eaters. During the final battle, [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere he and his parents flee Hogwarts]] instead of staying and fighting for Voldemort.]]
* SceneryGorn: Hogwarts half-destroyed.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere
** As the final battle of Hogwarts begins, Narcissa and Draco are calmly, but quickly, walking away from Hogwarts as Lucius follows making sure they aren't noticed.
** Several of Voldy's men noticeably disapparate the moment Harry turns out to be NotQuiteDead.
* ShoutOut: Voldemort's death is one here. It's best described as him dissolving into dust, flesh and musculature and cartilage. [[Manga/FullMetalAlchemist Sound familiar to anyone? Guess this makes him a Homunculus...]]
* SkywardScream: [[spoiler: Voldemort does this in his death scene. The effect of the rebounding death curse starts to disintegrate him, and he lets out a last, haunting scream as he turns to the sky and breaks up into nothing.]]
* SmoochOfVictory: Ron and Hermione.
* SpiderSense: Harry uses this to recognize horcruxes. This plugs the PlotHole caused by cutting out the dialogue where Dumbledore theorized what they might be.
* TemptingFate: After Griphook [[spoiler:abandons the PowerTrio]], Ron comments that at least they still have Bogrod. Bogrod is then [[spoiler:burned to death by a dragon]].
* TookALevelInBadass: Hinted at with the train scene in the first part, here we get to see that Neville Longbottom took ''all'' the levels of badass for himself.
* ThreePointLanding: After casting the Piertotum Locomotor spell, the Hogwarts statues descend from their plinths and land in this way just before the final battle.
* TranquilFury
** As [[spoiler:Professor [=McGonagall=] calmly and silently [[CurbStompBattle completely overwhelms]] the Carrow siblings as well as Snape at the Great Hall, knocking out the former and forcing the latter to flee]].
** Harry's basic resting-state throughout the movie. BewareTheNiceOnes indeed
* TrashTheSet: Hogwarts gets utterly ''destroyed''.
** One of the biggest laughs is, after the final battle, whilst all the main characters are resting and congratulating themselves, Argus Filch, a Squib with no magical ability, starts to clean up the mess ''with a push broom.''
* UnEvilLaugh: Voldemort has an evil, spiteful chuckle after announcing [[spoiler:Harry's [[NotQuiteDead "death"]]]] to a crowd. It's... less than satisfactory and is becoming the stuff of MemeticMutation.
-->"HEH-HEH-Heeehhh!"
* UnskilledButStrong: Harry is able to stand toe to toe with Voldemort by the time the eighth film rolls around due to this, though without Voldemort's knowledge and experience he is left running away much of the time. This is notable because up until this point anyone Voldemort has battled has [[CurbStompBattle been slaughtered]], [[spoiler:like the goblins and workers in Gringotts, or the human guards at Azkaban]]. Dumbledore, described by most characters as the most powerful wizard alive [[spoiler:(for awhile, anyway)]] is only able to fight him to a stalemate, making Harry's strength all the more remarkable.
* UrbanLegends: Word flits around the Internet that the boy (Arthur Bowen) playing Albus Severus Potter also played the baby Harry back in the original film. Cool as it sounds, this is untrue. The baby was played by a set of triplets with the last name of "Saunders", and Arthur Bowen was 2 years old when the first film was being made.
* VillainousBreakdown: It's safe to say that this happens to Voldemort as the film progresses [[spoiler:as his Horcruxes are destroyed]]. This results in him randomly killing [[spoiler:Pius Thicknesse]] when he asks Voldy if he's alright. Of course, the murder is completely in line for the guy. By the end of the night even Bellatrix is tip-toeing around him.
* VoiceOfTheResistance: Sends out the message to Remus & co. "Abrupt weather report; lightning has struck! I repeat, lightning has struck!"

** Wormtail's death is cut from ''Deathly Hallows – Part 1'', but [[spoiler:Wormtail doesn't appear at all in ''Part 2''. Timothy Spall was originally intended to reprise the role in ''Part 2'', suggesting that he was intended to be killed off anyway, but his part ended up being cut]]. Some believe [[spoiler:Dobby's attack killed him]], or that [[spoiler: he is among those killed by Voldemort at the beginning of Part 2 after the Gringotts scene]].
** Crabbe fits this trope when he doesn't appear in ''Deathly Hallows – Part 2'' (where Goyle does), although there was a reason the filmmakers cut him out (his actor Jamie Waylett was arrested for possession of drugs). Still, it wouldn't have been too hard to at least give mention to him in the Room of Requirement scene.
*** Filmmakers prefer not to give mention to forever-absent characters as it draws explicit attention to their disappearance, pulling the audience away from the moment at hand; this was Christopher Nolan's reasoning to not mention The Joker in ''The Dark Knight Rises''.
* WhyWontYouDie: [[spoiler:Voldemort's [[VillainousBreakdown reaction]] after everybody finds out Harry has survived the killing curse again.]]
* YouAndWhatArmy: Neville completes his transformation into a badass when he says this to [[PreAsskickingOneLiner taunt the Death Eaters]] when they try to get past the protective enchantments [[spoiler:and three of them end up ''disintegrating'']]. It's all the more awesome considering Neville says this to about ''a thousand'' Death Eaters who are inches away from attacking.
