Trivia: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

  • Creator Breakdown: The revelation that Harry was a Horcrux and his coming to terms with having to die coincided with Rowling struggling with her faith and belief in the afterlife.
  • Fan Nickname: This book is sometimes called Harry Potter and the Very Long Camping Trip.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Evidently Hermione's parents skipped Australia - her mother went to Westeros and married Ned Stark!
    • Syd is a Death Eater! (Not that surprising, actually...)
  • I Knew It: Most people guessed beforehand who R.A.B. was, Sirius' brother Regulus Black, even correctly guessing his middle name Arcturus, from his grandfather on the Black Family Tree.
  • Pandering to the Base: Allegedly, the reason Umbridge was put in the book was this - to watch her get mocked even more.
  • Trolling Creator: Leading up the book's release, Rolling kept hinting that she may Torch the Franchise and Run by killing Harry so that no sequel books could be written about him. Which she did, but not permanently.
  • What Could Have Been: A lot of material released after the book's release (such as the trio's lives after Hogwarts) were trivia Rowling would've liked to include in the actual book.
    • A deleted scene for Deathly Hallows, Part II would've shown Hagrid fighting the Death Eaters and ultimately being captured by them; as this was removed, Hagrid's first appearance is simply him already captured.
    • There was serious consideration for filming the deaths of Lupin and Tonks.
    • Crabbe would've suffered the same death he had in the book had his actor not been found with marijuana; his role as the sole casualty of the Fiendfyre is given to Goyle.
