Behind the scenes
- In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, while Harry and Lord Voldemort are duelling in the catwalks by the Quad battlements, Voldemort causes several strips from his robes to lash out at Harry like tendrils and wrap around his arms and throat. However, as this depiction of their duel contradicts the events as described in the novel, it is not considered canon.

- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Indirect mention)
