- Amazon Admirer:
- It's implied that part of the reason that Harry Potter develops a crush on Cho Chang is that she nearly knocks him off his broom while they play Quidditch. Gryffindor Captain Wood screams at Harry to not be a gentleman as Harry swerves to avoid Cho. While on a date several books later, Cho recounts the match and finds it hilarious how competitive Wood was.
- Hagrid's sweet crush on Madame Maxime at first is because they're both half-giant, and she understands what it means to be an outsider. As he recounts in Book five, she impressed him with some fast spellwork to save them both from hostile giants. The reason why their relationship didn't continue is she didn't think his rescuing his brother Grawp was a good idea, but Hagrid understood it was dangerous to transport a full giant and let her go.
- Draconic Demon: Dragons from the world of Harry Potter are among the most dangerous magical creatures due to their aggression and strength, which varies from species to species. The most dangerous is the black, spiky Hungarian Horntail, which is hostile and ferocious even by draconian standards. In Goblet of Fire, Harry is (naturally) pitted against one during the first part of the Triwizard Tournament, where he's tasked with stealing a golden egg that she's very protective of.
- Pet Owl: Owls are a common pet in the franchise, and are often employed as the setting's equivalent to postmen. Harry's snowy owl Hedwig is the most prominent example, serving as a beloved companion until her death at the hands of a Death Eater's killing curse.
- Wizards Live Longer: Between their more robust nature and magical healing, wizards and witches appear to regularly reach and pass their century marks.
