Effect

Causes the target to turn into a pig

"Shouldn'ta lost me temper, but it didn't work, anyway. Meant ter turn him into a pig, but I suppose he was so much like a pig anyway there wasn't much left ter do."
Rubeus Hagrid on his attempt to turn Dudley Dursley into a pig[src]

Human to pig was a Transforming spell used to transform a human target into a pig.

Circe was fond of using this spell to turn sailors into pigs in ancient Greece.

Behind the scenes

  • Hagrid mentions that he tried to turn Dudley into a pig, but supposes that must not have worked because he was already too much like a pig. However, he might simply have been using the wrong spell. Alternatively, this is simply another instance of Hagrid's magic not working fully, due to his snapped wand.
