Flintifors was the incantation of a Transfiguration spell that could be used to transform a small creature or item into a matchbox[1].


Professor Minerva McGonagall taught her first year Transfiguration students this spell in 1991[1].

Behind the scenes

  • This spell acts as a reversal of sorts to the Match to needle spell mentioned in the books.
  • It was going to appear in the PC version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, but was cut from the final product for unknown reasons.
