It is mentioned countless times Harry has his mother's eyes. In the seventh movie, the girl who plays young Lily clearly has brown eyes!
This one is a bit confusing. If you remember a few things happen when they time travel: Harry and Hermione throw stones to attract themselves out of Hagrids hut. Hermione thinks she sees herself. Hermione howls to stop Lupin (werewolf form) killing Harry. Harry conjures a patronus. The hole: If all these things happened then Buckbeak should never have died (they would have changed the course of things already i.e. the first time these events happen in the book), and Sirius should not be awaiting the kiss of the death eater(due to the same reason). Also when Hermione howls she attracts Lupin (wolf form) and is saved by Buckbeak. But sure he apparently died the first time round which would have evidently then left Harry and Hermione as Lupin's (werewolf form) food, then stopping Harry ever conjuring the Patronus, or to confuse things further... ever travelling back in time. (He did so after all these events happened) PLEASE HELP lol
If wizards, at the most, can only live to be about 150, how old was Nicolas when he made the sorceror's stone with Dumbledore? Nicolas was said to be 665 when he died, yet Dumbledore is only projected to be 118. How old was Dumbledore when he worked with Flamel? In realirty, Dumbledore would not have been born before Flamel needed the potion to continue living!
Dumbledore says in book 6 that the purpose of Voldemort's journal horcrux was to open the chamber of secrets. How did Lucius Malfoy know to put it in Ginny's bag if wasnt in contact with Voldy
and how did Lucius get the journal in the first place
Re: Snape's own potions book that has many changes and additions to the MoM/ standard book. Why doesn't Snape teach his students his version of the recipes? Also when Prof Slughorn brings potions to class for the first time they all need brewing for months how can he arrange that while on the run? He didn't know he would be working at Hogwarts so why all the potions? Also if the invisibilty cloak makes one safe from spells (when H, R & H end up in Hogsmeade in the DH the accio cloak spell doesn't work) but Malfoy can using perfectus totalus on Harry on the train and Dumbledore can use that on top of the tower Also why did Harry participate in the Tri Wizard Tournament. I get he couldn't get out of being submitted but why not just rock up and not do anything. Don't fight the dragon or go in the water or enter the maze. Turn up and but don't contribute. If he had done that Cedric wouldn't have died and Voldermort wouldn't have returned.
You might remember the one... 7 potions, logic puzzle. Hermione solves it. The potion allowing harry to get through only has "a mouthful" in it. So, quirrel must already have drunk the potion, leaving it empty, or drank a bit, leaving it half empty, making it blindingly obvious that it would help harry get through. And if he knew he was being followed (did he?) then wouldnt you have switched around a potion or two?
What would voldermort really gain by hearing the prophecy. was it worth half the order risking their life to protect it and mr weasly almost dying?
She says "come!" and Hermione does notice that it's parsletounge?
If Gridelwald stole the wand then he was never it's master. Therefore Dumbledore could not be its master either.
when harry is injured in #1 they do not delay the game, but when malfoy is injured #2 they do delay the game.
A Ford automobile in "Chamber of Secrets" actually keeps running for several weeks without needing repairs. This is just not possible; I don't care what magical spells are cast on it.
While looking through Snape's memories near the end of DH, Harry witnesses a conversation between Dumbledore and Snape, where Dumbledore says (I'm paraphrasing, don't have the book with me) that if Voldemort begins to be extra-protective toward his snake, then the time will be right for Snape to tell Harry the whole truth, including the part about how Harry must go out and let Voldemort kill him. WHY did Dumbledore think that Harry would believe such instructions coming from SNAPE? Harry already hated Snape; by the time this event would come about, Harry would also think that Snape murdered Dumbledore and that he was a full-fledged Death Eater. If Bellatrix Lestrange had told Harry that she was really on his side and that he should go sacrifice himself to Voldemort right away, is there even the slightest chance that Harry would believe her? The only reason why Harry DID believe Snape was that he saw the whole story in Snape's memory - which he probably would not have believed if Snape were not dead.
This is a very big plothole in my opinion. In the first book, Snape knew Quirrel was trying to get at the Sorceror's Stone for Voldemort and confronted him in the forest. Wasn't Voldemort on the back of Quirrel's head? Then how could Voldie have believed that Snape was on his side the whole time, if he heard Snape trying to stop them?
Right, dumbledoor explains magic is found on location, so Harry was only cought cuz he's the only wizard there. How come nothing is said about the order of the phoenixes magic but there is traces of dobbys and harrys??
If James, Sirius, Lupin, and Peter referred to each other regularly as Prongs, Padfoot, Mooney, and Wormtail while at Hogwarts, how could Snape not have recognized the makers of the Marauder's Map when he first confiscates it from Harry?
This is a seriously big plot hole and kind of ruins the whole 7th book.
In the third book she says it's in September which would make her younger then harry who's birthday is in July but harry is the last one to turn 17.
how come nobody realised that Mrs . weasley had an affair with voldermort and that ginny is voldermorts daughter , so ron and ginny fell in love and she took polyjuice potion every day to look like hermione cause she was afraid people would think her and ron were incest . Hermione also took polyjuice potion to look like Ginny . I cant believe ye call yerselves harry potter fan . DIMWITS avadra kedavra to ye all MUDBLOODS .
Not really a plot hole I don't think but I was just wondering. I haven't read the book yet so I don't know if it says in there.
I know this is a kind of stupid question and i know there is a question kind of like this somewhere around here. But anyway at the end of COS, lock-heart stole Ron's wand, but in the beginning of POA it says that it is Ron's wand. It has been a couple of years since i have read harry potter, but shouldn't Ron's old wand be Lock-hearts?
harry puts watter in the basen but it doesent work so why doesent he just put his wand in dumbledores mouth and conjour water
I am writing a fan fiction and need to know this before I can continue.
Why didnt they involve the other 2 schools (from goblet of fire) in the final battle with voldy?? also what about the centaurs? i thought they cud use all help they cud get?
why wudnt they use the other 2 wizarding schools to help in the battle at hogwarts? also what about centaurs? in the book gwarp helped hagrids bro but not in the movie it felt rushed dhpt.2 felt rushed the whole battle.like victor kruhm was at the wedding in the book but not the movie so i thought hed be fighting in the final battle but no it was just the order and hogwarts pretty much?? like no aurors coming to help like other magical families like the kids of hogwarts parents maybe or the school with all gir;s or the all guy school from goblet of fire like somthin i always thought that was weird just hogwarts and the members of the order and the school stuff
In Goblet of Fire James climbs out of Voldemorts wand BEFORE Lily, although Lily died after James, meaning she'd be more recently dead than James, meaning she should've climbed out first?
He is muggle born, right? Shouldn't he have been expelled with the other muggle-borns?
In the Chamber of Secrets, "The contents of Harry's trunk had been thrown everywhere. His cloak lay ripped on the floor." But, in the last book, it is stated that the Hallow cloak will never fade or become damaged! Either way, the cloak is never noted as having being repaired after it was ripped.
Even if the potion could only be removed with a goblet, couldn't they have just taken the potion and dumped it out? Or, if it refused to be dumped, just get a really big goblet? Or, if it must be removed with intent to drink, Dumbledore would realize this, tell Harry to drink it without explaining, then knock the goblet out of his hands?
When Harry, Ron and Hermione are discussing infiltrating the ministry the next day, Harry says, "Let me know if you ever defeat Voldemort, won't you?" How come the taboo isn't broken and Grimmauld Place's defensive spells are not taken down and the three found as they were after leaving the wedding and before being caught by the snatchers?
The narration says that Wormtail had a small child shaped scaly being, and that Harry didn't know who or what it was, just that he wished it would die. How did Voldemort have a tangible body in this book, if in HPSS he was a spirit like being, until he leeched onto Quirrell? Also in Chamber of Secrets the diary form of Riddle, needed to feed off of Ginny in order to come back as a tangible body. So how can Voldemort have a physical body in the goblet of fire? The horcruxes are pieces of Voldemort's soul. Because pieces of his soul are in tact, his mind remains alive and thats how he posses Quirrell, if he was not possessing someones body he would be a ghostlike being how he is after Quirrell dies in the Chamber of Secrets. So he has his mind and soul, he is just constantly searching for a body in books 1-4. How does he get the childlike body?
when dumbledore meets tom riddle the first time, tom says he can speak to snakes. years later when the chamber of secrets is opened isnt tom the only one who could have done it?
if speaking to snakes is a sign of being an heir of slytherin and the heir of slytherin being the only person who can open the chamber of secrets, wouldnt dumbledore have realized that tom riddle, not hagrid, opened the chamber.
When Voldemort was resurrected with harry's blood and gained the ability to touch him, wouldn't that mean the the protection in durleys home be bypassed to?
Why did harry have to go thru all the trials? Couldn't Crouch just get harry to touch some old object he had enchanted to be a portkey?
When Harry sees Voldemort/Lupin eating Unicorn blood, why did Quirrel walk forwards toward Harry? He should have been walking backwards if Voldey was drinking the blood. And if Voldey wasn't, why did Quirrel die?
It makes sense.
How did Dumbledore defeat, but not kill, Gridelwald, the holder of the Elder Wand...did he just hand it over and willingly go to prison?
If the fang destroyed the horcrux in the diary, and later the cup, why didn't it destroy the one in Harry?
it was only the order hogwarts students/faculty/and the protectors of hogwarts that was it?? what happened to victor kruhm who was at the wedding in the book but not the movie and his friends? they all just sat by and waited with the ladies from the other school for hogwarts to do it?? and why cudnt the students of hogwarts have alerted their parents who had magical powers and the ones that had powers cuds came n helped fight instead of leaving there child to fight a war that holds the fate of their future in it ya kno taht shuda been adressed get some aurors other magical families that care that no longer go to hogwarts yakno it has to do with all magical people not just the order n kids n teachers of hogwarts that shuda been much different even sum centaur action something that rly bothered me love the series but i def felt the last book was rushed not as rushed as the movies the movies were super rushed deathly hallows pt 1 was dragged on the 1st hr didnt cover nething than bleeeh gets slamd shut at the end and pt 2 was all rushed nuthing was paced and put together just thrown together and Rushed cant say it enuf got the point across but a lil disappointing to end sucha fantastic series
Wouldn't it seem easier just to make his hair fall over his "scar"?
If Sirius Black was a part of the old Order fo the Phoenix, why did all of his friends (Lupin, Dumbledore, Mr. Weasley) act like he was a loony massmurderer?
To furthermore enhance my point: Several times in the Prisoner of Azkaban, Lupin has the chance to tell Harry about Sirius. Likewise does Mr. Weasley at some point. If they all knew that Sirius was a good guy, why the suspense?
Voldemort did NOT, in fact, murder Cedric Diggory. He ordered it done, and it was done with his wand, but the one who actually did it was Peter Pettigrew. Later, Dumbledore makes a big speech about how important it is that everyone know exactly how Cedric died - and then he LIES to everyone, telling the entire Hogwarts student body that Cedric was murdered by Voldemort. He even goes on to condemn the Ministry of Magic for covering it up, and says that his own belief is that "the truth is generally preferable to lies." Apparently, though, Dumbledore has no problem suspending the truth when it suits his own purposes, and no problem falsely accusing people of murder. (Yes, Voldemort was guilty of lots of murders, but not this particular one.) Dumbledore's story of Cedric's death is certainly closer to the truth than whatever the Ministry had to say, but it's still a lie. This isn't necessarily a plot hole, but it is morally questionable behavior on Dumbledore's part.
HOW ARE HARRY,RON AND HERMIONE TRACKED TO TOTTENHAM COURT ROAD WHEN THEY HAVE NEVER UTTERED THE WORD "VOLDEMORT" DURING THEIR TRIP FROM THE WEDDING TO THE SHABBY INN.
RON EXPLAINS THIS BY SAYING THAT THERES A TABOO ON THE WORD "VOLDEMORT" BUT WHEN U ACTUALLY READ THROUGH THE TEXT,I NEVER FIND THEM USING IT THERE.
he used it to kill harry's parents and tries to kill harry then I assume he takes a spirit form. Are we to infer that his wand just sits in Harry's house until he has wormtail fetch it years later? No one searched the area for clues
Does it mean Voldy trying to kill Harry, but failing to do so counted as not conquering the old mastership...?
Why didn't someone just sneak up behind Voldemort, cast Avada Kadava on him? That would lose him his body so he'd just be a useless spirit again, right?
Why did Voldy have Nargini kill him if he thought that the Elder Wand belongs the wizard who killed it's last owner? Wouldn't he have wanted to kill Snape himself to be 100% sure about him being the wand's true master? Or did JKR made it this way just for Snape to be able to pass his memories to Harry. We've never learned about Voldemort killing people with his snake and now will he do this on something this important? With Avada Kedevera, Snape would have died instantly and therefore will not have been be able pass to Harry the info without which he could not have known that he had a last horcrux inside him and Voldemort must kill him to destroy it.
In the Deathly Hallows, Hermione jinxes Harry's face to make it unrecognizable right before the snatchers grab them. And once they arrive at Malfoy Manor, he can hardly see anything through his eyes. Yet, once they are thrown into the cellar, he can see fine and we are left to assume that somehow his face just went back to normal.
In HBP Dumbledore says the post of DADA is cursed, because they've never had a teacher stay longer than a year after Voldemort was refused the post. But in the first book Hagrid speaks of Quirrell taking a year off, and being afraid of his subject and students... it seems like he's been there longer than the year he's teaching Harry... Doesn't it?
In 1st book Hagrid clearly states "There's not a single witch or wizard who went bad who wasn't in Slytherin", but at this point Hagrid (and everybody else) believed Sirius was one on Voldys biggest supporters, and Sirius was in Gryffindor
In chamber of secrets Lockhart mentions in his book that he used the "Homomorphus" charm to cure a werewolf that cornered him in a telephone booth... but in the next book it says you can't cure a werewolf... What the heck? If you can't cure a werewolf why doesent someone call him a lier?
Dobby and Kreacher have apparated in hogwarts many times throughout the books, dobby even apparated from the malfoy manor in book 2, Why didnt anyone in the series ever mention this or use this to their advantage like a house-elf taking them in side-along apparition? I just thought as i was reading the books that this would play a significant part at sumtime.
In Chamber of secrets percy, as a prefect, takes points away from griifindor... but in Order of the phoenix Ron says that prefects can't take away points... what?
In the first book in charper 5, Hagrid states to Harry that he 'flew' to the island to collect Harry when Harry asks him. How the hell did Hagrid fly?? He couldn't have used the motor bike, as he would probably would have used it to get back. He wouldn't fit on a creatures (otherwise what happened to it) or a broomstick. Nor could he of dissapprated as he said he flew (plus he probabaly can't anyway as he was expelled in his 3rd year.) So how the hell did he fly there?? and if he didnt fly how else could he have gotten there?!
Voldy's horocruxes were three possessions of three of the founders of hogwarts, his snake a very powerful family heirloom from his pure blood family (Marvolos ring) and then a diary? I get that it was used to open the chamber so if he made it for that purpose why not make a horocrux out of something of actual importance. It just seems out of place in the list of horocruxs
They have two smart wizarding parents and just because one likes muggles doesn't mean he's a freaking muggle! Why?
The Weasley Twins performing magic (doing their experiments at home) while being underage and away from school
HE PROMISED HARRY IN CHAMBER HE WOULD NEVER SAVE HIS LIFE AGAIN, SO HOW DID HE DISOBEY AND SAVE HIM AT MALFOY MANNER?
When Harry recieves the cloak in the first book, Ron is in awe and says that they are very rare and very valuable. Considering we learn that the cloak is actually one of the Hallows, how is there going to be multiple invisibility cloaks around that truely make the wearer invisible when they discuss in the seventh book that nothing is greater than Harry's cloak?
Where are James and Lily's parents...Harry's Grandparents? Sirius stayed with them in the summertime, much like Harry visited the Weasleys, but no mention of what happened to them...
