- Alternative Character Interpretation: When it comes to Ron's good looks, is Harry envious or uncomfortable?
- Bizarro Episode: The whole thing Runs on Nonsensoleum.
- Designated Villain: The Death Eaters don't attempt anything villainous throughout the story aside from planning to get rid of Harry's magic, which wouldn't be necessarily a bad thing given how Harry and his friends are portrayed in the story. The only thing that points to them being villains is that they "looked bad".
- Memetic Mutation: "Ron's Ron shirt was just as bad as Ron himself."
- Ron the Death Eater: Ron suddenly eats Hermione's parents for no particular reason.
