Can You Choose Your Animagus in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery


Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is a role-playing video game developed and published by Jam City under license from Portkey Games. The game is set in the Wizarding World and based on the Harry Potter novels written by J.K. Rowling.

The game was released for Android and iOS on April 25, 2018. Players praised its free-roam settings throughout Hogwarts with an underlying original plot looming in the background. There are a lot of entertaining features added in between the main story to make the game more engaging for players.

One feature introduced in the books and movies was that of being an Animagus. In Hogwarts Mystery, players have a chance to become an Animagus themselves, following the questline that makes it happen.


Animagi (plural form) are wizards or witches that can perfectly transfigure themselves into an animal form of their choosing. Being an Animagus has its own advantages, such as having a high sense of smell (canines) or flying (avians). To become one in Hogwarts Mystery, players will have to follow a certain questline that will get them there.

The entire Animagus questline is a 4-part timed questline that can be finished by checking out our guide here.

Choosing an Animagus form

Once the player finishes the Animagus questline, they do get a choice regarding what animal they would like their Animagus form to be. Although the choices are definitely limited, the freedom to become any of these animals is definitely worth the quest. The choices that the players are allowed are:

  • Bird
  • Dog
  • Cat

Finishing this questline not only allows players to transform into one of the forms mentioned above, but also unlocks an achievement for becoming an Animagus along with a few rewards to boot, so this questline is definitely worth completing.
