The bit about the limitations on transfiguration - specifically human into animal transfiguraiton. I'm not sure where it comes from - there are no references or anything, and I've never seen it said anywhere in the books that turning a human into an animal also gives them the brain and mind of that animal.
And on a similar note how was Slughorn able to change back into himself from a chair

- Regarding the first item - not sure. Regarding the second, though, I rather thought that he didn't-- it was Dumbledore who changed him back. ProfessorTofty 18:03, December 3, 2011 (UTC)
- "The witch or wizard who finds him- or herself transfigured into a bat may take to the air, but, having a bat's brain, they are sure to forget where they want to go the moment they take flight."
- —Kennilworthy Whisp on the subject of magical flight.[src]
How are you able to untransfigure if your dumb as an animal? Like a hippo? And what happens when you transfigure to a dead object? Like an armchair?

So, the article currently holds that there are four types of Transfiguration, and that while they have a bit of a base in canon they're mostly speculation and conjecture. Is this sort of thing permitted? Should it be removed? It's been there a long while and so I wanted to ask first. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 00:13, February 13, 2014 (UTC)
This seriously needs to be addressed. For example, where is it ever stated that Conjuration is a form of Transfiguration? There aren't any sources for this claim anywhere in the article that I can find. Me, Hurray (talk) 22:06, September 25, 2016 (UTC)
