* In Chapter 43:
** Ron furiously calling the Gryffindors out for celebrating Harry's becoming Hogwarts representative, even though Harry explicitly stated he did not want to be in.
** Harry has to face the Hungarian Horntail (again) in the Triwizard Tournament's First Task. This time, though, he's not going to take the flying route: instead, he uses a transfiguration spell to transform rocks in the ground into heavy, sturdy chains to hold the dragon in position - which work until [[spoiler:the "agent in place" destroys one of the eggs]]. Then Harry casts such a hard Stunner that it knocks the dragon out in one move (something that usually needs more than six wizards working together) and his wand ends up smoking.

Added DiffLines:

** Before this, when Harry realizes [[spoiler:they are being attacked by Dementors]], he uses the Sonorus charm to warn everybody, and in his enthusiasm goes a [[{{Understatement}} bit]] overboard: the Hogsmeade inhabitants see that the windows facing Hogwarts are ''cracked''.

** Thanks to Harry's influence, Percy becomes less anal about the Ministry, and is willing to attack his boss (whom he idolized in the original books, even though he never got his name right) when he starts acting weird. This helps him to land a much better job as Madam Bones' (the head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement) assistant.

Added DiffLines:

* Harry gets his revenge on the Dursleys by [[LaserGuidedKarma having Vernon fired from his job with the stocks he purchased, sending the news of Vernon's dismissal to Smeltings, so that they can kick Dudley out, and simply doing nothing else afterwards.]] He notes that what makes the revenge even more satisfying is that he didn't use magic at all, which the [[BerserkButton Dursleys hate]], and therefore beat them at their own game.

Added DiffLines:

* An unmentioned one in chapter 2 goes to Harry before the merge occurs completely when Aunt Petunia is insulting his [[BerserkButton parents]] and [[CallingTheOldManOut shuts her up]] in a moment when Future!Harry's memories come to him.
--> Harry: My parents were not worthless. My father was a star Qudditch player and my mother was one of the best Charms witches of her generation. If you weren't so bloody jealous of her and her relationship with my father, you wouldn't feel the need to make up petty lies.
** It ends up stunning her into silence for the rest of the day, and this is before the merge is complete.
