Trivia

  • Peeves does not appear in the film, but is battled on a regular basis in this game. In the GameCube, Xbox, and PS2 versions he only appears in a cutscene, but is never battled.
  • In the PC/MAC version, the Forbidden Forest part is not included.
  • In the film and book, Harry's broomstick is jinxed in the first Quidditch match. In the PC/MAC and PS1 version, both Quidditch matches have no Jinxed brooms or accidents. In the PS2/Gamecube/Xbox version, the Slytherin match is played on a jinxed broom.
  • In the book, Quirrell summons ropes to tie Harry by snapping his fingers. In the film, Quirrell snaps his fingers to make fire surround the area. In the PC/MAC version, Quirrell moves his hands to conjure fire around the area. But in the PS1 version, Quirrell does not make fire surround the area, but green ropes do tie themselves around Harry at times. And in all the video games, Voldemort is the final boss.
  • In the PC and PlayStation versions of the game, Norbert seems to appear early in the game, unlike in the book and movie where he appears nearly at the end of the story.
  • Norbert is omitted in the PlayStation 2, Xbox, Nintendo Gamecube and Gameboy Advanced versions of the game.
  • Originally Reparo, Verdimillious and an unnamed spell were to appear in the PC/MAC Version of the game. Also Incendio and Wingardium Leviosa were to have more uses.
  • The Dursleys were to appear in the PC/MAC Version of the game because they have their model files still in the game.
  • Harry constantly fights Draco on a daily basis. Though, in the book and movie, Harry doesn't fight Draco at all until Year 2.
  • In the GBA version of the game, Harry gets caught by Professor Snape instead of Filch, and Harry's detention in the forest isn't the same as the book or movie.
  • In the GBA version of the game, Harry uses Flipendo on the Troll and it falls in a hole in the girls bathroom. In the book and Movie, Ron used the Levitation Charm on the troll's club to bash the troll's head with it.
  • In the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions of the game the Quidditch Match against Slytherin is at the last match of the year rather than the first.
  • In the PC, PS1 and PlayStation version of the game, Harry gets trapped in the dungeons during Potions class.
  • In the PlayStation 2, Xbox, Gamecube versions of the game, Harry goes alone in the Forbidden Forest.
  • The GBC Version of the game has a glitch during the part where you need to find ingredients for Snape. One of them is supposed to be found by examining a tapestry in Snape's office. However, if you get the other ingredient first, the one in Snape's office will never appear and you will be forced to restart the game.
