It occured to me when reading the part of Remus Lupin's transformations that if he were an Animagus, and transformed into his animagus state before the full moon. would he be able to live out the full moon in his animagus state and therefore cancel out the effects of his lycanthropy?

I don't think werewolves can become animagi, or Lupin would no doubt have done so. Probably because werewolves aren't technically human. Just like Hagrid can't use polyjuice potion because he is half-giant. Jayden Matthews 08:39, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Wow i never thought of that thanks Beetle888 01:32, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Werewolves are humans who've contracted an illness that turns them into a wolf-like creature once a month. As they're still human, I imagine they can become Animagi, though I don't think their monthly transformations into a werewolves could be prevented in this way. After all, Wolfsbane Potion cannot prevent the transformation, but only ensure that the werewolf retains his or her human mind. Starstuff (Owl me!) 08:15, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
