The bit about the limitations on transfiguration - specifically human into animal transfiguraiton. I'm not sure where it comes from - there are no references or anything, and I've never seen it said anywhere in the books that turning a human into an animal also gives them the brain and mind of that animal.

And on a similar note how was Slughorn able to change back into himself from a chair

Regarding the first item - not sure. Regarding the second, though, I rather thought that he didn't-- it was Dumbledore who changed him back. ProfessorTofty 18:03, December 3, 2011 (UTC)
"The witch or wizard who finds him- or herself transfigured into a bat may take to the air, but, having a bat's brain, they are sure to forget where they want to go the moment they take flight."
—Kennilworthy Whisp on the subject of magical flight.[src]

How are you able to untransfigure if your dumb as an animal? Like a hippo? And what happens when you transfigure to a dead object? Like an armchair?

So, the article currently holds that there are four types of Transfiguration, and that while they have a bit of a base in canon they're mostly speculation and conjecture. Is this sort of thing permitted? Should it be removed? It's been there a long while and so I wanted to ask first. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 00:13, February 13, 2014 (UTC)

What's the actual source for the Transfiguration Mathematical Formula?Sj25 (talk) 23:42, July 13, 2015 (UTC)Sj

This seriously needs to be addressed. For example, where is it ever stated that Conjuration is a form of Transfiguration? There aren't any sources for this claim anywhere in the article that I can find. Me, Hurray (talk) 22:06, September 25, 2016 (UTC)

Where is this mathematical formula from? What is meant with "viciousness"? I'm German and we have many translations for this, so can somebody please explain what is meant? Dougalsjumper (talk) 19:06, July 29, 2018 (UTC)Dougalsjumper
