The patronus quiz is an interactive feature offered on Pottermore since 22 September, 2016.[1] Users pick one of many timed choices with their instinct and follow the story to find out which animal will become their magical guardian.

If the user's Patronus Charm is particularly rare, then the user may be asked an additional question to clarify it.

Pottermore Doe Patronus

  • The concept and design of this feature are done by Rafael Dante.[2]
  • Following a joke on Twitter, Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling was forced to clarify that Harambe - a gorilla who was killed in a zoo and became the subject of debate - was not an available patronus form.[3]
  • There are a number of other tests online that offer similar questions and results as those on Pottermore, though Pottermore is the most complete and concurrent with the story. There are fanmade quizzes on Buzzfeed, MagicQuiz, Playbuzz, and Hogwarts Project.
