Slash wand at target
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)
