- "It was like watching a speeded-up film of a growing tree. A head was shooting upwards from the ground; limbs were sprouting; next moment, a man was standing where Scabbers had been, cringing and wringing his hands"
- — Description of the spell[src]
It manifested as a bright blue light and it might have needed to have been performed by more than one wizard. If performed on a non-animagus animal, the spell would have no effect and would not harm the animal in question.
This spell was used in the spring of 1994 by Sirius Black and Remus Lupin to reveal Ronald Weasley's pet rat Scabbers as Peter Pettigrew in the Shrieking Shack, exposing his true hidden identity to Ron, Harry Potter and Hermione Granger.
Behind the scenes
- In the the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the spell produces no light, and was performed on Pettigrew while he was rushing through a hole in the wall.
