Hermione Granger: "I can turn things into dragons now!"
Ron Weasley: "Wicked! You mean the flying, roaring, burn-down-the-village sort of dragon?"
Hermione Granger: "Um... no... it's just a very small transfigured dragon..."
Ron Weasley: "Oh - Shame."
Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley regarding the extent of this spell's ability[src]

The Draconifors Spell (Draconifors) was a transfiguration spell used to transform objects into small dragons.[1]

History

This spell was taught in third-year Transfiguration class by Professor Minerva McGonagall, during the 1993–1994 school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Hermione Granger easily mastered how to cast this spell in class.[1]

There was also a spellbook which contained information on the casting of this spell.[2]

Effects

The Draconifors Spell transformed the target into a dragon. However, it was only a very small transfigured dragon, around the size of an infant, significantly limiting its potential for violence and breathing fire.[1]

Known practitioners

Etymology
