YMMV: Potter Puppet Pals
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Neville's death. Harry, Ron, and Hermione bully Neville to the point where Neville self-destructs. Not funny. But then they begin eating his remains, and it's hilarious.
    • Puppet Draco's death too. Draco getting decapitated and set on fire by Harry is a little too mean-spirited, but Draco getting decapitated and set on fire by Harry while Harry sings a happy song about what Draco likes? Hilarious.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The ending of "Trouble at Hogwarts".
    Ron: We love you Snape!
    Group hug ensues, despite Snape's protests, only for Snape to give in
    Snape: Oh you kids. I love you too. Now please get off of me.
    Ron: No!
  • Ear Worm: Any one of the songs. The most infamous is "The Mysterious Ticking Noise".
    • Harry sang the most self-praising "I Am" Song in "The Vortex."
    • Don't forget the Draco Malfoy song!
    • The birthday song from "Neville's Birthday" apparently proved so catchy, Neil released a video containing that song by itself.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: "I am Snape, the potions master."
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment / Hilarious in Hindsight: Depending on your point of view, "Stopper On My Pain", a song about Snape's "lost love", is probably one of these (Or a mix of both). The song, written long before Deathly Hallows, was actually supposed to be a melodramatic ballad about Gilderoy Lockhart. Through pure coincidence, it almost perfectly describes Snape's feelings for his real lost love, Lily.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In "Trouble At Hogwarts", Voldemort hits Snape with Avada Kedavra during his attack on Hogwarts. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Voldemort actually does kill Snape during his attack on Hogwarts, albeit not in the same manner.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Harry, to an extent. While he is a selfish jerk, his insistence about not having any tears over his deceased parents in "Ron's Parents" is a bit pathetically sad.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Snape, Snape, Severus Snape..." "DUMBLEDORE!"
    • Really, the entirety of "Mysterious Ticking Noise".
  • Ron the Death Eater: Harry and sometimes Snape, both deliberately and Played for Laughs.
  • Tear Jerker: Albus Dumbledore Lists Your Good Qualities. Also counts as a Take That, Audience!.
    • Some of the entries in "Snape's Diary" are actually rather heartwrenching.
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible: "The Awakening of the Incorruptible" is almost Dada in its deconstruction of standard dramatic tropes, its rejection of the noise of modernism for the postmodern silence.
  • Wangst: Wizard Angst!
    • So is Snape, Orange One. So is Snape.
  • The Woobie: Snape. Especially in "Snape's Diary".
    • Harry gets a moment in "Ron's Parents."
