Transformation or Transubstantial Transfiguration is the name given to a branch of Transfiguration that focuses on deforming the physical features of an object. It is not to be confused with Trans-species Transformation, though that is a type of transformation.
Transformation contains the following sub-groups all of which overlap with each other to varying degrees): human Transfiguration, defined by and named for the target being a human being; Switches, which simultaneously exchange features between organism; and the aforementioned Trans-Species Transformations, which refer to transformations that change organisms from one species to another.
Due to the applied, precise nature of Transfiguration magic there is a large potential for it to go disastrously wrong, even for the experts.
If transformation is done improperly, the Transfigured object can become half-Transfigured or permanently stuck in one state (whether fully or partially Transfigured); for example, Viktor Krum half-Transfigured himself once into a shark in the Second Task of The Triwizard Tournament in 1994 (although he was not stuck in that form, so it may have been intentional).
