->''"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 include as much of the material as possible.

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.

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]]
* 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.
* AdaptationExpansion: In the book, Hermione only told us she wiped her parents' memories. In the film, we get to see her doing it. There is a DeletedScene where Yaxley arrives at the Grangers' house to find it empty.
* 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 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.
* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: The fragment of a mirror inexplicably appears in Harry's possession and he calls to it for help, with no previous mention of how it ended up there or why he would ask it for help. In the books, the mirror was a two-way communication device; a gift Sirus gave Harry so the two of them easily could contact each other. While Harry thought the mirror had stopped working after [[spoiler:Sirus' death]] and had broken it in frustration as a result, he had begun to occasionally seen someone's bright blue eye looking back at him from the shard, and believed it to be [[spoiler:Dumbledore trying to contact him from beyond the grave]], but it turns out that [[spoiler:it was actually Dumbledore's brother who had bought Sirus' mirror]].
* AdaptationalConsent: Several characters who were coerced to help Voldemort in the book instead do so voluntarily, most notably Pius Thicknesse, who was under the Imperius curse in the book, and Gellert Grindelwald, who spills all the information about the Elder Wand without any coercion, whereas in the book Grindelwald flat out tells Voldemort that he has no intention of helping him and tells him he can go ahead and kill him if he likes, to which Voldemort obliges.
* AdaptationalModesty: When Harry jumps into the pool to retrieve the sword, he has to strip completely naked. In the film at least he keeps his boxers on. Averted with the Horcrux image of Harry and Hermione - who are just as naked as they are in the book.
* 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, so it could be inferred that he may have been coerced into cooperating against his will, while not actually being under the Imperius Curse.
** In the book, Grindelwald [[spoiler: refuses to tell Voldemort what the Elder Wand's location is, and Dumbledore and Harry later speculate this was some sort of final penance before his death. In the movie, he happily tells Voldemort where it is.]]
* 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. 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. 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.
* BadassBoast: Dobby gives an epic one.
-->'''Dobby''': Dobby has no master. Dobby is a ''free elf''.
* BaitAndSwitch: We see the back of a man with a long hair and a flowing black cape [[OminousWalk marching towards]] the Burrow while ominous music starts to play. The man strongly resembles Snape, [[spoiler: assumed at that point to be]] [[TheDragon Voldemort's right hand]]. No, it's not him, it's the Minister for Magic, Rufus Scrimgeour.
* BerserkButton
** 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.]]
** 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]]."
* 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]]).
* TheCameo: Frances de la Tour returns for a quick one as Madame Maxime at Bill and Fleur's wedding.
* CaptainObvious: Dobby:
-->'''Dobby''': Of course, sir. I'm an elf.
* ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler: When the Power Trio is attacked in the café, Ron uses the deluminator to put out the lights. This is the light in the deluminator that he later uses to find Harry and Hermione when he wanted to come back to them.]]
* 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 it's cheaper and more moving for the graveyard scene, to use the actual actors.)
** In the movie continuity, Harry didn't meet Bill until this movie, which is why Bill properly introduces himself here. (In the book, they first met in the fourth book.)
* 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.
* DanceOfRomance: Subverted. Harry gets Hermione to dance with him just to cheer her up, but it's strictly platonic. The scene does hint that it could be heading that way - as it occurs after Ron leaves them thinking Hermione chose Harry - but nothing comes of it.
* DecompositeCharacter: In the books, Ron [[InterruptedIntimacy interrupts Harry and Ginny's kiss]], because [[MySisterIsOffLimits he disapproves of Harry giving Ginny false hopes and then going on a Horcrux hunt]]. In the film that role is given to George.
* 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]].
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:Dobby is killed by Bellatrix with a knife while Disapparating to get the gang to safety.]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: When Pius Thicknesse is shown taking charge of the Ministry, both Mafalda and Runcorn can be seen among the employees with him and Umbridge - while Reg Cattermole can be seen in the crowd listening. This foreshadows the trio impersonating them later when they infiltrate the Ministry.
* EatTheCamera: 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.
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: The trio's hair is shown growing longer as they spend more time on the run. Harry gets a haircut from Hermione midway through, but the other two are quite shaggy.
* EurekaMoment: Hermione gets one while she's cutting Harry's hair.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: As Nagini is about to eat Charity Burbage's corpse, you can see few Death Eaters are visibly terrified, although more vicious Death Eaters like Bellatrix and Dolohov seem fascinated instead.
* {{Fanservice}}: The nude kissing scene between Horcrux!Harry and Horcrux!Hermione is this to male and female fans alike. There's also Harry in his underwear diving into a pool of water.
* 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!"
* 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.
* GottaCatchThemAll: Part of the Trio's quest involves gathering the Hallows.
* GottaKillThemAll: And the other part involves destroying all of Voldemort's Horcruxes.
* 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. Justified by the 'Undetectable Extension Charm' she placed on it, mentioned in both book and film.
* 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 Deluminator.
* 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 [[PervertedSniffing 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.
* IronicEcho: Harry taunts Umbridge with the very phrase she forced him to carve into his own hand during his detentions/tortures in ''Order of the Phoenix''.
-->''You're lying, Dolores. And one mustn't tell lies.''
* 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 also be a StealthPun on St George, patron saint of England.
* LampshadeHanging: When they arrive in Godric's Hollow, Hermione says they should have used Polyjuice Potion to disguise themselves. They did do this in the book, but in the film it would clearly detract from the emotion of the scene to have different actors standing in for them.
* 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}}''.
* MuggedForDisguise: During their infiltration of the Ministry, they stunned three Ministry workers to become them. In the end, one of them came back.
* 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.
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: Harry delivers one before [[spoiler: they rescue the locket Horcrux: "You're lying, Dolores. And one mustn't tell lies."]]
* SacrificialLion:
** [[spoiler: Mad-Eye Moody and Hedwig are the first casualties of the film. Mad-Eye's death proves that not even the toughest of the heroes are safe, and like in the book, Hedwig's death represents the end of Harry's childhood for good.]]
** [[spoiler: Dobby, though to a lesser extent than in the book. In the book, his death convinces Harry to focus on the Horcruxes over the Hallows. Meanwhile in the film, while his death is no less tragic, there's no mention of this epiphany taking place.]]
* 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]]]].
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Non-fatal variation. The waitress gets stunned in the fight in the cafe, along with the Death Eaters. In the film she just misses the fight and runs off.
* 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!"]]
* VillainousBreakdown: After being deprived of a wand, Lucius Malfoy is prone to snapping at lowly grunts that disrespect him and [[TheAlcoholic his hands seems to be glued to a glass of wine]].
* WrongInsultOffence: When the villainous Bellatrix says that the heroic Dobby nearly killed her by saving his friends:
-->'''Dobby:''' Dobby never meant to kill. Dobby only meant to maim or seriously injure.
* 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 And 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.
** Additionally, we see more of the preparations around Hogwarts for the battle, like Kingsley manning people at the towers to fend off the Death Eaters.
* 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.) A line from Harry during his conversation with Aberforth sums up the film's approach to the Dumbledore subplot.
-->'''Harry''': I'm not interested in what happened between you and your brother.
* AdaptationalHeroism:
** Well, it takes ''much'' less to convince Aberforth to help out than in the book.
** The Prince's Tale segment leaves out [[spoiler: Snape first asking to only save Lily, not caring if Harry and James die, and has him beg for everyone's safety from the start]].
** Almost with Draco. A scene was filmed where he [[spoiler: breaks ranks with the Death Eaters and throws Harry his wand after it's revealed he's still alive]] - but it was cut from the final film.
* AdaptationalModesty: Harry is naked when [[spoiler: he wakes up in the AfterlifeAntechamber]]. In the film he's already wearing clothes.
* AdaptationalVillainy:
** The book made a point about ''all'' underage students being evacuated regardless of house. Aberforth suggests holding Slytherins hostage, and when Harry counters that Albus wouldn't approve, it's another major factor in rallying him to help out. Here, ''[=McGonagall=]'' orders the Slytherins locked up in the dungeons after Pansy tries to get Hogwarts to surrender Harry, and the students aren't evacuated ''at all''.
** Though just as smug and unpleasant as he was in the book, Griphook betrays Harry here out of petty spite, while in the book it was due to a sense that Harry wouldn't keep his word in handing over the Sword of Gryffindor.
* 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.]]
* AssholeVictim: Griphook agrees to help the trio get into Bellatrix's Gringotts vault in exchange for the Sword of Gryffindor. When he gets them there, he forces them to turn over the sword before they can use it to destroy the horcrux, then abandons them, claiming he promised to get them ''in;'' he never said he'd get them back out. He's killed by Voldemort almost immediately, still holding the sword.
* 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 it. ''[[TakingYouWithMe Together.]]''
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:Neville jumping out to kill Nagini with the Sword of Gryffindor.]]
* BigDamnKiss: 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 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.
** [[spoiler:The image of Voldemort, said to be the piece of his soul that was trapped in Harry, looks suspiciously like Voldemort that Pettigrew revives in "Goblet of Fire."]]
* CleavageWindow: On Hermione during the gang's mission in Gringotts, due to her wearing Bellatrix's clothes.
* ClothingCombat: 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. Likely Fenrir Greenback as well. Lavender's death was confirmed by WordOfGod.]]
* DeflectorShields: Hogwarts is surrounded by one as a preemptive measure when [=McGonagall=] decides to make a fight out of the situation.
* 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.
* DisneyVillainDeath:
** [[spoiler: Goyle falls to his death from the top of a pile of junk in the Room of Requirement. Into the fiendfyre but still]].
** Fenrir Greyback is blasted out the window by Hermione after [[spoiler: he kills Lavender]].
* 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:''' [[spoiler:I said I'd get you in. I never said anything about letting you out!]]
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath:
** [[spoiler: Snape]]'s death scene, 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."
** [[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, which while pretty obvious didn't make them official onscreen, leading to a HookedUpAfterwards for the time skip.
* HystericalWoman: Helena Ravenclaw is portrayed this way, in contrast to her proud and haughty description in the books. Justified, given what happened to her; downplayed in that she's not so much hysterical as coldly angry (and when Harry alludes to Voldemort, she loses her composure quite terrifyingly.)
* 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 Gringotts' 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 Voldemort's men think they've won they just shuffle wearily across the bridge to Hogwarts, exhausted after fighting all night. They only regain their arrogant bravado after Neville pretends he's going to join them. [[spoiler: Then there's the reaction when Harry reveals to still be alive, forcing many of them to ScrewThisImOuttaHere to avoid the inevitable consequences once Harry and Voldemort's final face-off ends.]]
* 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.
* NoodleIncident: Ron opens the Chamber of Secrets by imitating Harry's Parseltongue, even though he can't speak it himself:
-->'''Ron:''' (Speaking Parseltongue and opening the door) Harry talks in his sleep. Have you noticed?
-->'''Hermione:''' (flustered) No, of course, not!
* 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.
** A quite boastful Neville promptly shuts up when the school's protection charm breaks, leaving him face to face with scores of Death Eaters. He runs [[spoiler: and kills them all by destroying the bridge behind him]].
* OneWomanWail: Lily's new {{leitmotif}}.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Luna putting her foot down: "HARRY POTTER, YOU LISTEN TO ME RIGHT NOW!"
** The only time in the entire octology where Hermione is riding a broom is when they are escaping the Room of Requirement.
* 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.]]
* PragmaticAdaptation: The climactic battle between Harry and Voldemort is expanded from the wordy confrontation in the book, since that would have had the characters simply circling each other and shooting jibes for upwards of about five minutes. Instead Voldemort chases Harry around Hogwarts and they claw and tear at each other as they Apparate, before ending up back in the grand courtyard for their final duel.
* PrecisionFStrike: As mentioned just above this sentence, Molly Weasley's line from the novel is kept intact.
* PromotedToLoveInterest: [[spoiler: Neville and Luna, which wasn't in the books. Matthew Lewis claims it was "a summer fling" before they moved onto their canon partners.]]
* 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 is half-destroyed by the battle.
* 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 more savvy {{mook}}s instantly disapparate the moment Harry turns out to be NotQuiteDead, knowing full well that when the battle is over, Voldemort will be dead, and they will either face incarceration in Azkaban again for eternity, or worse.
* 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...]]
** [=McGonnagall=]'s spell that turns Hogwarts' knight armors into a magical army. [[Film/BedknobsAndBroomsticks The spell's name and its effect are referencing a similar character from another movie...]]
** Rowling had wanted ''Film/{{Brazil}}'' director Creator/TerryGilliam to direct ''Film/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'' but Warner Bros opted for Creator/ChrisColumbus instead. As a shout-out to Gilliam David Yates portrayed the Death-Eater infested Ministry of Magic in a way similar to the Ministry of Information in ''Brazil''.
** [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings "You and whose army!?"]]
* 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, decides to start trying 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.
* 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.
** [[spoiler: Then when Voldemort thinks he's won after presumably killing Harry, when Harry reveals that the Avada Kedavra failed to kill him ''again'', Voldemort goes ballistic, while many of his Death Eaters chose to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere disapperate for their lives]] knowing the battle is lost now because Harry still lives. At one point during their final fight, Voldemort resorts to punching and kicking Harry because he's so frustrated.]]
* VoiceOfTheResistance: Sends out the message to Remus & co. "Abrupt weather report; lightning has struck! I repeat, lightning has struck!"
* WasntThatFun: After Minerva casts a spell to bring the suits of armour to life, she giddily says to Molly "I've always wanted to use that spell."
* WhamShot: In one scene during the Battle of Hogwarts, Harry, Ron, and Hermione encounter [[spoiler:Fenrir Greyback killing an unknown student]]. After Hermione defeats him, the camera cuts to the victim's face; it's [[spoiler:Lavender Brown]].
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse:
** 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).
* WhyWontYouDie: [[spoiler:Voldemort's [[VillainousBreakdown reaction]] after everybody finds out Harry has survived the killing curse ''again''. At this point, he pretty much goes on a psychotic rampage to end Harry's life once and for all before Nagini is killed and renders him mortal.]]
* 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.
* ZergRush: Voldemort essentially uses this as a strategy to attack Hogwarts, simply relying on hundreds of Death Eaters to swarm Hogwarts.
