- Designated Villain: The Dursleys. As much as the story claims that they are horrible, abusive parents, everything we actually see of them indicates that they are a perfectly functional, loving family. Heck, even Dudley appears to genuinely like Harry in this version, going by the one line he gets! Really the story seems to act as if these Dursleys are no different from the ones in the canon, despite the fact that they are really only the Dursleys In Name Only.
- Draco in Leather Pants: Unintentionally done to the Dursleys, of all people, whose only real crime is not believing in God and otherwise seem to be fine parents for Harry. Also done to Voldemort, whose evil deeds can be summed up as "made a Troll atheist account online and may or may not be an Author Avatar".
- Poe's Law: No one can quite decide if it's a parody/troll-fic or not. The final chapter heavily suggests it, however.
- Ron the Death Eater: Heavily downplayed, but Ron and his entire family are "Slytherin Hats", which is depicted as the worst hat. Ron himself isn't evil, though; just misguided.
