Behind the scenes
- Hermione Granger idly suggested to Harry Potter that he might use this spell on a dragon to turn its fangs to wine-gums, but rejected the idea as impractical because as a rule it was nearly impossible to cast a spell through a dragon's hide.
- Hermione also gains some house points for knowing about these spells before they studied them.
- Neville Longbottom cannot perform a simple Switching Spell. This has been criticised by Minerva McGonagall.
- Harry Potter forgot the definition of a Switching Spell when doing his written Transfiguration O.W.L.

- Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (video game) (Mentioned only)
- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (First appearance)
