Can ALSO be spelt Homorphous

This spell is so obviously fake, the fact that it is called a charm only further adds to the absurdity. Given how Charms work by changing what an object does, as opposed to what an object IS as stated by Rowling herself; I strongly believe we should take this spell with a huge pinch of salt and include that the original spell (the one used by that Warlock) would most likely have been a Transfiguration one.

Is this a general untransfiguration, or does it just work on animagi, or does it only turn transformed werewolves back into humans (as far as I'm aware, the third usage is the only one the books specified, and the rest is speculation). Also, if this is a general untransfiguration, could it and Reparifarge be the same spell (I know Pottermore only ever said to use it if you messed it up, but "say "Reparifarge!" and the transfigured object or creature should return to its original form" sounds to me like a general untransfiguration)? 22:59, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

We have to go by what canon says, and all canon says is that this spell can turn werewolves back into their human form (temporarily, we can assume, since there is no cure for lycantrophy). Assuming any more than that, aside from a brief BTS note that this could be the Animagus reversal spell, would be unwarranted, I'd think. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 23:07, August 26, 2012 (UTC)
That's what I thought, but I wasn't sure, because the article said it was a general untransfiguration, whether I should change it or not. 23:12, August 26, 2012 (UTC)


So... isn't it possible that Lockhart truly believed that he was facing a werewolf when really it was just an Animagus but he didn't know that because he had next to no magical knowledge? I mean, in this image, it's nearly impossible to tell which one is the werewolf and which one is the Animagus, only the colour gives it away. So it's possible that the Homorphus Charm is actually used to untransform Animagi, isn't it? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 23:48, June 1, 2013 (UTC)
