* GoldenSnitch: The origins of the TropeNamer are detailed. The Snitch was not originally part of the game, but was introduced in the form of the Golden Snidget, a tiny round hummingbird whose incredible speed made it difficult to catch. The Chief of the Wizards' Council threw one into a match while offering 150 Galleons to the first player that could catch it. From then on, it became customary to include Golden Snidgets in the game, with them granted 150 points in honor of the original bet, but the dark side was that the Snidget tended to be killed in the process. Eventually, their numbers dropped so low that inclusion of them was banned, and an artificial replacement was built, the Golden Snitch.

** Twice, it's shown a rule change that prompts wizards to say "TheyChangedItNowItSucks" - once for turning the goals from baskets on stilts into fixed-size hoops, and another for banning "[[UnnecessaryRoughness two chasers knocking out the goalkeeper]]".
** Not to mention that the ''Daily Prophet'' articles are exactly the same in terms of formula: "A QUOTATION FOR A HEADLINE": A "insert synonym for worried here" ministry official, his quotation, his being assaulted by a rain of Quidditch-related objects, a(n) "insert facial characteristic here" wizard, and their quotation. As the articles ran less than two years apart, they probably shared the same in-Verse writer.

* HomeFieldAdvantage: wicker caves.
Quidditch goals began as trees before progressing to baskets on poles, and then open hoops. During the basket era, teams would often place very small, difficult-to-score-in baskets at their own goals, and enormous "wicker caves" (as one Ministry official put it) at the opposing goals. Such lopsided pitches prompted the change to hoops, which were standardized at a fixed size.

** The Thundellara Thunderers vs. The Wollongong Warriors. The rivalry is so bad that the very idea of refereeing a game between the two clubs is implied to be a ''nasty'' one. Heck, in wizarding Australia, the common reply to an unlikely claim or boast is "Yeah, and I think I'll volunteer to ref the next Thunderer-Warrior game."
