- There is certainly a case to be made for giving Hagrid's umbrella its own article — after all, we have separate articles on Lucius Malfoy's wand and its container, the snake cane — but I still feel that it is redundant. In addition to carrying Lucius' wand, the snake cane was also used as a cane, and I don't think the same can be said for Hagrid's umbrella. I don't remember Hagrid ever using the umbrella as an umbrella, so, in my mind, it's indistinguishable from his wand. ★ Starstuff (Owl me!) 20:47, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
I have merged the two articles but still clearly distinugished to two items. I felt it was neccesarry because they were both used for the same thing and by the same person.

I just came up with a new theory in the possibility of Hagrid's wand pieces being inside his umbrella. For one thing, how could Hagrid have embedded it inside an umbrella anyways? Wouldn't that somehow partially hinder how the umbrella opens and closes? We all know that Dumbledore had possession of the Elder Wand during the time Hagrid was still young and at Hogwarts and that it is capable of reparing wands fully. We also know that Dumbledore was the transfigurations professor before McGonagall took over. What if instead of repairing the wand Dumbledore transfigured Hagrid's wand into an umbrella instead? I know that we probably don't have any information of a wand being transfigured, but it could explain why the umbrella is a magical object and can be used like a wand because it's really a wand that has been disguised. But with it not being a true wand, it won't perform as well. L4D2 Ellis (talk) 18:09, July 4, 2015 (UTC)
