Can someone refresh my memory - What is said about Teddy Lupin's ability to change his appearance? I don't have any recollection of this. Mafalda Hopkirk 19:20, 19 October 2007 (UTC)
- JK Rowling stated it in a web chat shortly after the release of Deathly Hallows - here's the link . Just search for Teddy or metamorphmagus on the page. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 19:24, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

- Also, in the book itself, when Lupin visits everyone at Shell Cottage (after Harry and them escaped from Malfoy Manor), he announces the birth of Teddy (when he asks Harry to be the godfather), and Lupin makes reference to Teddy's hair chaning color already.
I just thought I'd mention this, in case anyone wanted to argue against it; but the article says the ability is learned, when in fact it is not learned. You are born a metamorphmagus; you can't become one. I'll just change it. Kyouraku-taichou 02:32, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
I dunno how to put this, but pixies, unicorns and dragons are defined as creatures, obviously. But is metamorphmaguses really wizards/witches or are they in the category as creatures? Anyone knows?
- They are Wizards within an inborn ability, just like Parselmouths or Seers, and that is how they are referenced in this wiki. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 22:31, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

If Tonks got this ability her dad must have known a metamorphmagus 'coz Andromeda wasn't one.

Metamorphmagi are rare. It is likely Tonks inherited her gift from an an indididual who lived generations ago (perhaps her great great great great grandparent) or was the first Metamorphmagus in her family. And article talk pages are not for general discussion.--Rodolphus 14:40, December 15, 2010 (UTC)
To what degree can they change their appearance? Butch the Rabbit 15:26, June 3, 2012 (UTC)
