- Alternative Character Interpretation: Surprisingly Gilderoy Lockhart. It's actually played very well how Lockhart can help Harry and vise versa. It's surprising when this interpretation made Lockhart a fan favorite. This reaction even shocked the author, enough to eventually write another story where Lockhart raises Harry entitled "When In Doubt, Obliviate!", which now has its own trope page.
- Crazy Awesome: Harry. The other characters even think of him as this in universe.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The joke of Draco being the love child of Narcissa and Snape takes on a new dimension of fun when you learn that in canon his son would eventually be declared the love child of Daphne and Voldemort.
- Magnificent Bastard: Harry during his second year, after Lockhart teaches him to merchandise using his natural charisma.
- Nightmare Fuel: Due to the deconstructions, a lot of the first few chapters reveal this from the original first book book now that Harry's looking at it though older eyes instead of just being an awed eleven year old. Examples include:
- Neville's family (namely his Great-Uncle Algie) was technically trying to kill him to see if he had magic powers
- What if Seamus's dad had reacted to his mom being a witch the same way Snape's did?
- The fact that even the Weasleys have engaged in some subtle anti-muggle racism, though Ron doesn't seem to notice it (see the main page).
YMMV / Oh God Not Again!
