Can you turn evil in Hogwarts Legacy?

As was expected, you cannot become entirely evil in Hogwarts Legacy. Your primary mission is to save the world, but that does not involve joining evil forces or fighting against professors and other students. Therefore, you remain on the storyline’s light side even if you use dark magic.

You can, however, use dark magic through the Unforgivable Curses, which may be enough for some players who want to venture upon the dark side.

What is dark magic in Hogwarts Legacy?

Even though it is impossible to become an actual evil wizard in Hogwarts Legacy, you can use Unforgivable Curses to torture and dominate your opponent. Fortunately, all three Unforgivable Curses are available in the game. Here is a little more about them.

Avada Kedavra

Avada Kedavra, the killing curse, is the only spell in Hogwarts Legacy and the wizarding world that can kill enemies just in one hit. Even though using Avada Kedavra is banned by the Hogwarts rules, you can still cast this spell in the game.


Crucio, the Cruciatus curse, is the perfect spell to torture your enemy in Hogwarts Legacy. It stuns the opponent, dealing significant damage to them. 


Imperio, the Imperius curse, is the only Unforgivable Curse changed in Hogwarts Legacy. Instead of controlling your opponent’s mind, like in the Harry Potter books and movies, it forces them to fight on your side. 

That’s it with becoming an evil wizard in Hogwarts Legacy. Even though the game doesn’t allow you to join the evil side and fight against other students, you can cast dark magic to kill dangerous creatures in Hogwarts valley.
