Fanfic / Harry Potter and the Guardian's Light

Go To

Harry Potter and the Guardian's Light is a Mega Crossover written by Finmonster in 2010 as a sequel to his other fic The Marvelous World Of DC. In it, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone meets Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Vertigo Comics, and Dark Horse Comics, as young Harry Potter enters a world of magic and wonder. As he begins his fateful journey, he must make new friends, face new enemies, and wield a power magic itself knows not! The Fic was completed on Nov 10, 2010, and can be viewed on Fanfiction.Net.

This fanfiction contains examples of:

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Zachary Zatara and the Sandman to Raven. Also Nandita/Jinx to Daimon Hellstromm. She evens plants a Forceful Kiss on him.
  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: Jack Russell has claws sharp enough to cut troll throats. When you remember that trolls in the Potterverse have unbelievably thick skin (to say nothing of Marvel trolls), this speaks volumes of Jack's badassery.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Voldemort has Supernatural Gold Eyes, as opposed to Creepy Blue Eyes, as per the films, or red eyes, as per the books.
  • Adaptational Badass: In the original Philosopher's Stone, Hagrid had to give Dudley Dursely a pig's tail to convince his parents to let Harry go. Here, he just uses Tranquil Fury.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Wanda Maximoff, AKA Scarlet Witch, is a student at Professor Xavier's School as well as a Hogwarts student. Even at her most heroic in the original comics, Wanda never joined the X-Men after abandoning Magneto.
  • Adaptation Species Change:
    • In the original Marvel Comics, the Dragon Man is an android shaped like a Draconic Humanoid. Here, he's literally half-dragon and half-man, due to being a magical fusion of Charlie Weasley and Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback.
    • Also applies to Peeves. According to Johann Krauss, Peeves is not a real Poltergeist, just an unidentified spirit who pretends to be one. Krauss himself defines a real Poltergeist to be a bodyless psychic spirit, like Krauss himself.
  • All Trolls Are Different: Naturally. As per Philosopher's Stone canon, Hogwarts is subject to mountain troll attacks- this time more than one troll, however. And the Potter-type trolls are led by Ulik and Orikal, traditionally troll adversaries of The Mighty Thor.
  • Almighty Janitor: Argus Filch is one of these. When he's not tormenting the students of Hogwarts for selfish reasons, he's forging Magitek firearms with the help of Arthur Weasley- he makes the guns, Arthur enchants them- and selling to them to the likes of John Constantine and Hellboy. And when he finds out that Voldemort is invading Hogwarts with an army of mountain trolls, he charges into the fray, dishing out headshots to those trolls to hold them off.
  • And the Adventure Continues: With London under threat, and the wizarding world now changed by Dr. Strange, Harry uses the green lantern to fly off to help, ending the book.
  • Ascended Extra: Charlie Weasley and Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback are both merged into the Dragon Man and sent to attack Hogwarts. Fluffy the three-headed dog is kept in reserve to attack Ulik's trolls.
  • Beary Friendly: Played with by Charlie Wylde. To ordinary Hogwarts students (and Hagrid ), he's the this trope played straight. To Ulik's mountain trolls attacking Hogwarts, he's Bears Are Bad News.
  • Berserk Button: Bringing up the Frankenstein novel to Viktor Von Frankenstein II, because its author demonised him and his creator. Also, being Sheeda in his presence, though he appears to be easing up on that last one after a heart-to-heart with Misty Kilgore.
  • Blinded by the Light: Raven teaches Harry how to weaponize Lumos in this manner. Daimon Hellstromm is the unwitting recipient.
  • Body Horror: As per canon, Voldemort when he's possessing host bodies. Apart from appearing as a face on the back of Quirrel's head, he later appears as a face on Ulik's stomach; and when he pulls a Grand Theft Me on Ulik, his face moves up the troll's body and merges with Ulik's own face. The process is implied to be torturous for Ulik.
  • Boxed Crook: Argus Filch uses this to get Peeves to cooperate with him, by threatening to imprison him in a ghost-containing device built by him and Arthur Weasley if he doesn't help fight off Voldemort's allies.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Raven does this to Dumbledore for hiding the truth of her status as a daughter of Trigon from her and making her life that much harder to bear, and nearly subjects him to a Psychic Strangle in the process. To her credit, he takes her advice.
  • The Chessmaster: Deconstructed in Dumbledore's case. Raven calls him out for treating his students and allies like pawns in a game of chess- after all, his decision to withhold her birth status as a daughter of Trigon ended up making her life that much harder later on- and he takes her words to heart, opening up to Harry about the prophecy concerning him and Voldemort earlier on, so that he's better prepared.
  • Composite Character: A literal case in the Dragon Man, a magical Fusion Dance of Charlie Weasley and Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback. Also, Frankenstein's Monster has the appearance of his thuggish film version, but the intelligence of his literary counterpart, as per DC canon.
  • Creepy Crows: Appropriately for a scarecrow, the Straw Man has several of these. They can take human form and use their feathers as knives.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Charlie Wylde manages to wipe the floor with one of Ulik's mountain trolls, within seconds of them invading Hogwarts.
  • Demoted to Extra: Apart from Draco Malfoy, Severus Snape has a smaller role than in canon, due to Detective Chimp working out who Voldemort's agent is earlier than they worked it out in canon. Also, according to Finmonster, Harry himself will have a smaller role in the series than in canon, even though he's still fairly prominent in this book, because it's about him.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Detective Chimp has this reaction when he removes Quirell's turban to find Voldemort's face underneath.
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: In canon, Quirinus Quirell died due to exposure to the love-based protective magic placed on Harry Potter by his mother. Here, he dies when Johann Krauss crushes him between the slates of the Hogwarts infirmary floor, depriving Voldemort of his host body earlier than in canon.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: Satanna Hellstromm serves as one of these to Voldemort. She plans on using his magical power to release the imprisoned Trigon- and her and Daimon's own demonic father, Marduk Kurios, as she admits to her brother in a Motive Rant.
  • Eagleland: Type 1. Raven self-deprecatingly identifies herself as "a Yank" when she meets Harry, but she doesn't portray any negative stereotypes. Indeed, Dumbledore decides to let Harry spend Christmas in America with the BPRD once it becomes clear that he can't stay with the Dursleys any longer.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: The whole reason King Melmoth of the Sheeda visited Viktor Von Frankenstein in the first place was to learn his secret and revive one of his sons who was killed in a battle. Viktor refused, fearing what Melmoth would do with such power. In response, Melmoth killed Viktor, his wife, and his daughter, and took his creation/surrogate son captive to cut him up and discover his secret.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Etrigan- and through him, Jason Blood- has gained a reputation as a brutal hunter of the Sheeda. But not even he wishes to kill the defenseless Misty Kilgore, because she's only a defenseless schoolgirl: so when his teammate Viktor Von Frankenstein II tries to murder her in the Hogwarts Healing Wing, the Demon stands up to him.
  • Eviler than Thou: Voldemort to Ulik, when he takes control of the troll's body.
  • Evil Redhead: Satanna Hellstromm is a proud Daddy's Little Villain to her demonic father Marduk Kurios, and later betrays Hogwarts to Voldemort as a plan to release him. Her friend Nandita/Jinx also qualifies, just replace "red" with "pink". Subverted by her heroic brother Daimon.
  • Evil Sorceror: Voldemort, naturally. Also Doctor Destiny and Doctor Doom, who appear to him in the final chapter to offer a Villain Team-Up.
  • The Fair Folk: The Sheeda are regarded as this, after their role in destroying Camelot. Misty Kilgore has to constantly hide her true nature as a Sheeda for fear her friends would reject her. Thankfully, they don't.
  • Fantastic Racism: Apart from Pureblood supremacists such as Voldemort, there's also bad blood between humans and Sheeda, as mentioned above. Also, Blue, Sebastian Faust's demonic bodyguard, appears disdainful of Daimon Hellstromm because he's half-human.
  • A Father to His Men: Ulik the troll is reluctant to ally with Voldemort, because doing that would not bring back the "boyz" he's lost in his battle with the BPRD earlier.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: The one and only appears as an agent of the BPRD. He's tall, heavyset, and powered by lightning.
  • Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: Yes, Viktor Von Frankenstein II( the original Frankenstein's Monster) has good reason to hate the Sheeda. His creator/father, his creator's wife and their daughter, were all brutally killed by Melmoth, the king of the Sheeda, for refusing Melmoth's request to teach him the secret to restoring life so that he could revive one of his sons who recently died in a battle. After failing to dissect Viktor to learn how his creator brought him to life, Melmoth left him to be vilified by the world as murdering Viktor I's family. That said, as both Hellboy and Etrigan point out, tarring Misty Kilgore with the same brush as Melmoth makes him no better than people who view him as a monster just because of what he was born, and he comes to recognize this and makes peace with Misty afterwards.
  • Funetik Aksent: Hagrid's West Country accent and Dr. Krauss' German accent, as per canon. Also Ulik, who speaks with an accent that you'd associate with an Ork from Warhammer.
  • Gatling Good: Giant-Killer, a Magitek minigun forged by Argus Filch and bespelled by Arthur Weasley. And wielded by Rubeus Hagrid.
  • Genius Bruiser: Quite a few characters in this story are both strong and intelligent.
  • Get A Hold Of Yourself Man: Argus Filch does this to Percy Weasley, when instead of thanking Filch, Peeves, and his brothers Fred and George for saving him from Nandita/Jinx, he calls Filch out for giving his younger brothers guns.
  • The Ghost:
    • Trigon. He never directly appears in this story, but his status as the father of Raven makes him a central figure in her Character Development.
    • Also, the Shadow King. He was responsible for Johann Krauss becoming a Poltergeist, by destroying Johann's body, along with killing his wife and the widow they were holding a seance for. In spite of that, he never appears in this story either.
  • Giant Mook: Voldemort basically uses Ulik's mountain trolls as these.
  • Happily Adopted: Not in the sense that he gains new official parents, but Harry accepts an invitation to become a ward of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defence rather than remain with the Dursleys.
  • Hellhound: Fluffy the three-headed dog, as per canon. According to backstory in the first fic, Fluffy and his ilk are mortal offspring of the original, infernal Cerberus. Doesn't make him any less dangerous. Just ask Ulik's trolls.
  • Herr Doktor: Johann Krauss, as per canon. He has the accent to show for it.
  • Historical Villain Upgrade: In-Universe. Mary Shelley would have you believe that Viktor Von Frankenstein was a selfish man who abandoned his creation at birth for being ugly, and that his creation took his temper out on Frankenstein's innocent brother and wife. In real life, Frankenstein I accepted his creation as a surrogate son, Warts and All, and he and Elizabeth adopted him into the family, living happily together long enough to have a daughter called Emily. Then the Sheeda king Melmoth came to visit the Frankensteins, and it all went downhill from there.
  • Honey Trap: Satanna reveals to her brother that she's having sex with Professor Sylvanas Kettleburn, the handicapped professor of Care For Magical Creatures. And thanks to what he tells her, she finds a way for Voldemort's trolls to get into Hogwarts a second time.
  • Horrifying Hero: Due to the crossover nature of the story, quite a few of the heroes qualify as these. Hellboy and Etrigan are literal demons, Viktor Von Frankenstein II is...exactly who you think he is, the Straw Man is a living scarecrow, Johann Krauss is a Poltergeist, and Jack Russell is a werewolf.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: Sort of. Rubeus Hagrid is half-giant in canon, and Argus Filch arms him with a Magitek minigun called Giant-Killer. He doesn't kill any actual giants with it, though, just trolls.
  • Identical Stranger: Tim Hunter is this to Harry Potter. If not for their different eye colors- Tim has brown eyes, Harry has green eyes- they could be brothers.
  • The Igor: Viktor Von Frankenstein I had one of these, naturally. He treated him kindly in spite of his kyphosis. Didn't stop Igor from selling Viktor out to Melmoth and the Sheeda, though.
  • I Hate You, Vampire Dad: More like, I Hate You, Satanic Archetype Dad. As per canon, Raven really hates her demonic father Trigon- and while he doesn't go on about it like she does, presumably the same applies to her half-brother Hellboy. The same applies to Daimon Hellstromm and his father Marduk Kurios- and while this is never stated, if the same rules apply to canon, Misty Kilgore and her father Melmoth. In Misty's case, therefore, it would be a case of I Hate You, Evil Fairy Dad.
  • Imagination-Based Superpower: Harry comes into the possession of a green item that enables him to create hard-light constructs with his imagination, and he gains superhuman abilities with it. It's the Starheart, containing the spirit of Ganthet, not a Green Lantern ring.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Despite Detective Chimp unmasking Professor Quirrel as his inside man, and getting his host body destroyed earlier than in canon, Lord Voldemort still returns to Hogwarts after Christmas to kill Harry Potter and take possession of the Starheart within Hogwarts' vaults.
  • I Take Offence to That Last One: When Detective Chimp unmasks Quirrel as Voldemort's agent at Hogwarts, a retreating Quirrel is berated by Voldemort for being "undone by a talking monkey!" Chimp replies to this with, "Actually, I'm an ape. A chimpanzee, to be specific."
  • It May Help You on Your Quest: Before Daimon leaves Hogwarts to track down his escaped sister, Sebastian entrusts him with his demonic bodyguard Blue, who he summons from a bag full of bones. Of course, their relationship is likely to be prone to Teeth-Clenched Teamwork, since Blue doesn't like Daimon.
  • Jerk Jock: Draco Malfoy. And Zachary Zatara, but he's less openly rude to Muggle-borns just because he's pragmatic.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Despite his at-times callous treatment of the BPRD, Hellboy states that he's going to take Director Tom Manning's advice and lock Viktor up somewhere no-one will find him if he ever tries attacking a Hogwarts schoolgirl and ruining the Bureau's friendship with Hogwarts again.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Argus Filch is reimagined as one, since he's willing to actually work with students and people he doesn't like in defense of Hogwarts.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Zachary Zatara is less discriminatory towards Raven Buttenholm, but that's just because he wants Raven to go out with him. Apart from that, he's as much a supporter of Fantastic Racism as any Slytherin.
  • Just a Kid: Sands, the Sandman, is this underneath his gasmask.
  • Kick the Dog: Voldemort mocking the death of Harry's parents to his face.
  • Killed Off for Real: Quirrel, as per canon.
  • Kill It with Fire: Voldemort tries to do this to the Straw Man by setting him on fire. Because he left the Straw Man's painting intact, though, he reappears at the end of the story.
  • King Mook: Ulik is the leader of Voldemort's trolls.
  • My Kung-Fu Is Stronger Than Yours: The Mask says this to the Sandman when confronting him in the BPRD library. And considering how well he fights before being overpowered, he has a point.
  • Large Ham: The Straw Man when he's singing an "I Am" Song to introduce himself to Harry while killing trolls.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After bullying Wanda Maximoff shamelessly, Nandita/Jinx, a Reality Warper, gets knocked unconscious by Peeves.
    • Also applies to Director Manning. At the end of The Marvelous World Of DC, he was seen being rude to Stanley Ipkiss after he joined the BPRD. Here, the first time we see him in the story (when Harry's spending Christmas at the BPRD as a trial run for being adopted by them), the Mask is giving him a wedgie.
  • Laughing Mad: Hagrid, of all people, goes into a fit of such laughter after shooting down a whole line of Ulik's mountain trolls. Thankfully, Filch snaps him out of it.
  • Lightning Can Do Anything: Lightning is what brought Frankenstein's Monster to life, and it empowers him whenever it hits him again, giving him the ability to melt Ulik's Anti-Magic armour, and kill countless Sheeda.
  • Logical Weakness: When the Mask fights the Sandman, after being distracted by his true age upon giving him a Dramatic Unmask, Stanley leaves himself open to being unmasked and depowered by his opponent.
  • Made of Iron: Madam Pomfrey is this, surprisingly. A few seconds after Viktor von Frankenstein apparently knocks her out by shoving her into a wall, she recovers and knocks him out with a Stunning Spell.
  • Magic Meteor: The Starheart qualifies as this, due to containing the spirit of Ganthet, and Voldemort seeks to use it to regain a physical body. He doesn't like to describe it as a "meteor", though.
  • Meaningful Echo: While he's confronting Harry in the Straw Man's painting world while possessing Ulik's body, Voldemort does a dark take on "you look so much like your father, but you have your mother's eyes."
    Voldemort: Well there's an interesting look. So... fierce. No fear like before. Reminds me of your father. [chuckles] Yes, you've no doubt been told that you have your mother's eyes. Even I noticed, and I didn't even know them that well! Of course, it's hard for me to forget the details of the night I died. Anyway, it is true that you have your mother's eyes, but that look... that look is your father's. It's the same look he had right before I killed him. Defiant until the end, he died like a Gryffindor. He died like a fool.
  • Mistaken for Gay: When Misty decides to show Hermione what she really is, she has to take off her shirt to unfold her wings. Hermione thinks Misty's going to show her... something else, and blushes.
  • Mythology Gag: Wanda Maximoff keeps a pet toad called Mortimer, who she introduces to Neville Longbottom's toad Trevor. Mortimer is the first name of the mutant called Toad, Wanda's old teammate in the Brotherhood of Mutants in the original Marvel Comics.
  • "Not So Different" Remark: His heart-to-heart with Misty Kilgore enables Viktor to work out that his unreasonable hatred towards the Sheeda makes him no different from all the people who accuse him of being evil just for being an Artificial Zombie.
  • Not So Omniscient After All: Detective Chimp manages to work out that Professor Quirrel's working for Voldemort from the first moment he arrives at Hogwarts, but he doesn't manage to work out that Voldemort is also possessing Quirrel's body, until he knocks off the turban.
  • No Holds Barred Beat Down: Harry does a stabbing variation of this to a Voldemort-possessed Ulik with the feather knives of one of the Straw Man's crow-men. Sadly, due to being less experienced than Voldemort and running on pure anger, Harry loses after a few seconds.
  • Not So Invincible After All: Despite effortlessly plowing through the entire BPRD to reach the Straw Man, once he does, the Sandman loses. Totally.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Satanna Hellstromm and Nandita/Jinx appear to be a mere snide Alpha Bitch and Beta Bitch, respectively. But then later on, Satanna uses information she seduced out of Professor Kettleburn to get Voldemort and his army of trolls into Hogwarts, and get Charlie Weasley forcibly merged with Norbert the dragon, after which Orikal brainwashes him and sends him to kill Harry and friends.
  • Oh, Crap!: The Sandman's response to the Straw Man overpowering him, proving his claims of being given 1/10th of Dream's powers false.
  • The One Thing I Don't Hate About You: Dr. Johann Krauss tells Viktor von Frankenstein that the one thing Mary Shelley got right about him is that his father was not, as he feared, a modern-day Dr. Faustus, but a modern-day Prometheus.
  • One-Winged Angel: The Hellstromm siblings revert to their demonic forms before fighting one another.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: Misty Kilgore is a Sheeda, part of a race of dark fairies feared and hated by the Wizarding World after they destroyed Camelot. And Frankenstein's Monster hates them even more.
  • Our Spirits Are Different: The Ghost Rider is alluded to when he appears on The Daily Prophet killing a wizard and then vacating the premises. One has to hope that wizard was an Asshole Victim...
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: The last book introduced Bigby Wolf, The Big Bad Wolf who can speak, blow gale-force winds, and take human form. Here, we meet Jack Russell, the Werewolf by Night, a man who takes Wolf Man form, has Super-Senses and Absurdly Sharp Claws- sharp enough to cut the throats of trolls.
  • Pink Is Feminine: Nandita/Jinx has this hair colour.
  • Plot-Irrelevant Villain: Surprisingly, Draco Malfoy becomes one of these. Apart from becoming enemies with Harry in one chapter, and stealing Neville's Remembrall in the next chapter, as per canon, he doesn't have that large a role in the story, since Satanna and Jinx replace him as "Antagonistic Slytherin" in the story. The most important thing he does is get Harry sorted into the Gryffindor Quidditch team, and that gets overshadowed by Tim Hunter discovering his unnaturally-large magical core at the same time.
    • Also the Sandman. The civil war in the Dreaming that he tells the Straw Man about while fighting has nothing to do with the central conflict of the story (Harry vs. Voldemort), and he's basically just there to give Harry and the BPRD An Ass-Kicking Christmas.
  • Post-Victory Collapse: This happens to Tim Hunter every time he over-exerts himself magically, such as burying a bunch of mountain trolls under a bathroom ceiling or knocking out the Dragon Man.
  • Put on a Bus: Liz Sherman has left the BPRD at the time Harry gets adopted by them, seeking psychiatric help with her Power Incontinence. Hellboy is, naturally, quite low about it.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: Obviously the Golden Trio were already an eclectic bunch in canon, but here Harry's schoolfriends include Sebastian Faust, Raven Buttenholm, Daimon Hellstromm, Wanda Maximoff (AKA, Scarlet Witch), and Misty Kilgore.
  • Red Is Heroic: Played straight by Ron Weasley, Hellboy, Etrigan, and Daimon Hellstromm. Subverted by Daimon's sister Satanna, as per canon.
  • Rogues' Gallery Transplant: Traditionally, Ulik the Rock Troll is an enemy of The Mighty Thor, instead of the BPRD and Hogwarts.
  • Scary Scarecrows: The Straw Man is an Anti-Hero Scary Scarecrow.
  • Screw Destiny: After Harry learns of the prophecy, Dumbledore assures him that prophecies can be changed, with Harry repeating this vow to Raven when she tells him about the prophecy of her and Hellboy's roles in Trigon's planned apocalypse.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: After Harry pulls him out of Ulik's body, Voldemort is imprisoned by Filch and Peeves in a ghost-containing device built by Arthur Weasley, based on the Ghost Trap from Ghostbusters. It's implied that he'll eventually escape with the help of Doctors Destiny and Doom.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: The Starheart contains the spirit of Ganthet, one of the Guardians of the Universe, whose body was destroyed by rogue Guardian Krona. Harry uses his help to defeat Voldemort.
  • Self-Destructive Charge: When Voldemort taunts Harry about the murder of his parents, he furiously attacks the dark wizard and starts slashing him repeatedly with two daggers made from the Straw Man's crow-men plumage. He forgets, however, that Voldemort is not only older and more experienced than him, but is also possessing the body of a massive troll. Sure enough, he only gets a few good blows in before Voldemort loses patience and throws him off.
  • Snakes Are Sinister: Voldemort already had snakes as an Animal Motif in the books- speaks to snakes, has a pet snake, is of descent from a wizard whose symbol was a snake, controls a gigantic Basilisk snake inherited from said wizard, looks like a snake- but here, Finmonster takes that motif up a notch and gives Voldemort's disembodied spirit the appearance of a snake made of smoke when he's not possessing a host body. He even hisses like one!
  • Sssssnaketalk: In his disembodied spirit form, Voldemort is shaped like a snake made of smoke, and his sibilants are stretched out.
  • Team Member in the Adaptation: Even at her most heroic, Wanda Maximoff has never joined the X-Men in Marvel canon. Here, she's a student at the X-Mansion.
    • Also applies to the BPRD, whose members now include not only canon teammate Johann Krauss, but Viktor Von Frankenstein II, Jack Russell, the Werewolf By Night, the Straw Man, and by the end of the fic, Harry Potter.
  • Took a Level in Badass: By the end of the story, Harry has learned about the prophecy concerning him and Voldemort 4 years earlier than in canon, and with the help of Ganthet, he's openly battled and wiped the floor with the Dark Lord. And the story rounds off with Harry flying out to confront an invading alien fleet overlooking the Hogwarts Express. He's not flying with a broomstick, by the way: he's flying under his own power, thanks to Ganthet possessing him.
  • Took a Level in Cynic: Raven in the last fic, about to go to Hogwarts for the first time? Cheerful Child. Raven at the start of this story, after spending five years at Hogwarts? Broken Bird, because she found out about her true parentage from a demon she was hunting for the BPRD, and it made her life that much harder. Dumbledore's goal for Harry is to help Raven ditch this mindset.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Igor, Viktor Von Frankenstein I's manservant, betrayed his master by enabling the Sheeda king Melmoth to break into his castle, kill him and his family, and take his creation/surrogate son Viktor II captive. He did this even though Frankenstein treated him with respect and cared for his deformity.
  • The Unmasqued World: At the fic's conclusion, Doctor Strange abolishes the Statute of Secrecy.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Tim Hunter has an unnaturally large magical core, but due to being a Muggleborn or so he thinks, he doesn't have any experience with using magic, and frequently over-exerts himself and passes out afterwards, such as when he's trying to raise his broomstick, squash several mountain trolls under a bathroom ceiling, or subdue the Dragon Man.
  • Van Helsing Hate Crimes: Ironically, it's Frankenstein's Monster who is the instigator of these type of hate crimes. The Sheeda killed his creator and family and blamed Viktor II for it. Ever since then, he's hated and hunted the Sheeda wherever he finds them. But as Etrigan and Hellboy make clear to him, that doesn't justify trying to murder a schoolgirl just for being one of the Sheeda, and he eventually acknowledges that such behavior makes him no different from people who accuse him of being a monster just because of what he was born.
  • Villain Team-Up: After he is imprisoned by the finale of the story, Voldemort is visited in the ghost-containing device by astral projections of Doctor Doom and Doctor Destiny, who offer to set him free and restore his physical body if he swears loyalty to them. Voldemort accepts their offer.
  • Villainous Crush: A creepy No Yay variant. The first time she meets Harry Potter, Satanna Hellstromm comments on how cute he is and strokes him behind the ears. This is Wrong On So Many Levels because not only is Satanna five years older than Harry, but she's a sociopathic half-demon who wants to release her evil father on the world. Raven straight-up calls her a "sicko" and orders her to leave Harry alone.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: We never find out whether the Dragon Man was de-fused into Charlie Weasley and Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback after Tim Hunter knocked him out. Not even Ron mentions it to Harry after he recovers from his battle with Voldemort, and you'd think Ron would consider that important enough to tell Harry, especially since Charlie's his older brother.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Hellboy has this reaction to Viktor Von Frankenstein II deviating from their mission and breaking into the Hogwarts infirmary to kill Misty Kilgore just because she's a Sheeda.
    Viktor: I was continuing my mission.
    Hellboy: By attacking a little girl!?
    Viktor: She is a Sheeda, that's all that matters.
    Hellboy: Wait. Let Me Get This Straight.... The Frankenstein monster is judging a person by what they look like? If that's not Irony, I don't know what is.
    Viktor: I wouldn't expect you to understand.
    Hellboy: Oh, I understand. You're a prejudicial psycho. A guy with a grudge and a gun. Now, I put my ass on the line to get you on this team, but if you pull something like this again, we'll do what Manning wanted and have you locked up where no-one will ever find you again. Got it?
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: Voldemort has eyes of this colour, as opposed to red eyes as per the books, or blue eyes as per the film, just to heighten his Snake Motif.
