The Lapifors Spell (Lapifors) was a transforming spell that could be used to transform the target into a rabbit; it worked best on smaller targets such as statues, salamanders or cats. The spell could be viewed as a jinx when used to transform creatures into rabbits.
This spell was learned in third-year Transfiguration class at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, taught by Professor Minerva McGonagall. This spell was covered in third-year exams at the end of the school year.
Alternatively, Lapi- could be derived from Latin Lapis, meaning "stone", in reference to the statues Lapifors can transform.
Behind the scenes
- The first two syllables of the incantation of this spell, "lapi", sounds very much like "lapin", a French word meaning "rabbit".
- The Goblet of Fire video game categorises this spell under "Jinxes", but it is unknown if this is canon or not, since no video game depict this spell as a jinx, but simply as a harmless transfiguration spell.
