Neville lost Trevor many times. For example, the first time he came to Hogwarts on the Hogwarts Express, Neville lost Trevor but was soon helped by Hermione Granger who met Harry Potter and Ron Weasley during her search.
In Neville's third year, Trevor was part of the Frog Choir when they performed Something Wicked This Way Comes on 1 September. Later on the school year, Professor Snape made him test his Shrinking Solution on the toad, with the warning that if made incorrectly, it would likely be poisonous. After Trevor drank the potion he successfully transformed into a tadpole, much to the Gryffindor's delight; however, Professor Snape was displeased and deducted five points from Gryffindor because Hermione had helped Neville create the potion.
When Harry encountered Neville in the last carriage of the Hogwarts Express in their fifth year, Neville had a one-handed grip on a struggling Trevor. Later, Neville dumped the toad into Harry's lap, so that he could demonstrate the defensive mechanism of his Mimbulus Mimbletonia. This was to Harry's regret when Cho Chang then visited the compartment, as "he would not have chosen to be sitting with Neville and Loony Lovegood, clutching a toad and dripping in Stinksap."
Trevor made a bid for freedom on the Hogwarts Express, but Neville caught him again.
Behind the scenes
- There was a theory by a fan named Naomi that Trevor was the Animagus form of Neville's Uncle Algie, but this was said to be false by Rowling.
- In the Spanish translations of the books Trevor has been tranferred into a turtle instead of a toad.
- In the scene when the trio leaves the common room to save the Philosopher's Stone, Trevor is mistakenly refered to as a female in the German version. All other times he is mentioned, including all other books, he is male.
