— Finding one of the five talking gargoyles.[src]

The Barking Mad Male Gargoyle is one of the talking gargoyles in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It is located on a balcony on the the fourth floor of the castle. It would randomly spout nonsense, or repeatedly insist that it could not speak.

During the 1995–1996 school year, Professor Binns assigned his Fifth year students the task of listing five talking gargoyles as a homework assignment. Harry Potter located the gargoyles as a favour to Dean Thomas so that he could attend the first meeting of Dumbledore's Army in the Room of Requirement.

Like the others, casting Incendio on the gargoyle would cause it to breathe fire.
