The dragons produced from this spell are much smaller and less powerful than true dragons, and their size depends on the object from which they are transfigured - i.e. a smaller object will produce a smaller dragon, and a larger object will produce a larger dragon..
Behind the scenes
- There exists a spellbook with information about this spell and how to cast it.
- It is unknown if conjured objects would suffice for this spell to be effective in its transformation, though it is possible.
- It is possible that this is how the model dragons used in the First Task of the Triwizard Tournement were created.
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (video game) (First appearance)
