*Thought it did not make it into the film proper, concept art of the Reusable Hagman was made for the [[Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (film)|film adaptation]] of ''[[Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince]]''. Rather than a generic man, however, the film version would have contained a caricature of [[Dolores Umbridge]].
