Top Ten Animals and Mythical Creatures to Have As a Patronus

If you haven't seen or read Harry Potter, you won't know that a Patronus is essentially a spirit guardian which exists in animal form, and is a wizard's strongest line of defense. Its form represents what you identify with in positive spirit, and is thus a topic worth debating.

The Top Ten

1 Dragon Dragon A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures.

I'm pretty sure my Patronus would be a dragon. A naturally intelligent, wild and energetic creature. - PositronWildhawk

Naturally a meat eating, destroyer, loot stealer to keep it in a den, kidnapper of princess, everything you don't want.

It's a dragon why would you not want it as your patronus

This is what I got naturally.

2 Phoenix Phoenix

Absolutely majestic. Wanted one since forever. I think a Pheonix would make a very cool patronus! - keycha1n

If I can't have one as a pet, why not a Patronus? - PositronWildhawk

3 Hawk Hawk Hawks are a group of medium-sized diurnal birds of prey of the family Accipitridae which are widely distributed and varying greatly in size.

My online namesake is a hawk. And you all know I'm perceptive and powerful. - PositronWildhawk

My patronus is a hawk as well.

I think I am a hawk.

I like peanuts. - Warhawk2187

4 Dog Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.

Probably a bit biased as a husky is my Patronus, but still!

More specifically, one of my own dogs. - PositronWildhawk

I unleash the power of Ozzy... my dog! - IronSabbathPriest

Dogs deserve to be the third place as a Patronus because they are loyal and protective. My Patronus is actually a Bernese Mountain Dog!

5 Pegasus Pegasus

I would love for my Patronus to be a pegasus. Majestic and graceful creatures, if they existed. - Pegasister12

I try to see online exam telling that what is you patronus and I got pegasus... I think so..

It is a amazing creature. Beautiful, majestic and awesome.

It would be so cool! Pegasuses are the best mythical creatures.

6 Dolphin Dolphin Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic marine mammals. They are an informal grouping within the order Cetacea, excluding whales and porpoises, so to zoologists the grouping is paraphyletic.

A highly evolved creature, and the animal we're closest to communicating with. - PositronWildhawk

My Patronus would definitely be a dolphin, they are naturally protective, intelligent, and swift!

I think this would be mine. If always had a soft spot for dolphins

Awesome - EliHbk

7 Snow Leopard Snow Leopard The snow leopard is a large cat native to the mountain ranges of Central and South Asia. The name "Snow Leopard" is due to its white fur, and the black spots dotted over it.
8 Cat Cat The "House Cat", also known as the Domestic Cat or the Feral Cat, is a small feline, a good hunter, and comes in a variety of colours and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated.

I'd probably be a cat - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

9 Owl Owl Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes about two hundred species of mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing, sharp talons, and feathers adapted for silent flight.

This probably the bird I identify most with. It suits me, don't you think. - PetSounds

Votin for owls just because there are lots of owls in Harry Potter.

I identify with birds in general. Though it does suit you PetSounds!

However, I'm on my third all nighter this week, so don't blame me for feeling owl-ish too... - keycha1n

10 Eagle Eagle Eagle is a common name for many large birds of prey of the family Accipitridae; it belongs to several groups of genera that are not necessarily closely related to each other. Eagles are also one of America's national symbols.

The Contenders

11 Centaur Centaur A centaur, or occasionally hippocentaur, is a mythological creature with the upper body of a human and the lower body of a horse.
12 Snake Snake Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears. About 600 species are venomous, some of which can be fatal to humans if no medical help is sought.

The snake may have some dark connotations in the Harry Potter series, but the snake has its positive attributes. For one thing, I have a thing for snakes. - PositronWildhawk

13 Mermaid Mermaid A mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish.

A mermaid as a patronus would be amazing! - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

14 Monitor Lizard Monitor Lizard
15 Wolf Wolf Often in/from packs, Wolves are carnivorous Canines that come in various colours and breeds, and have evolved to Dogs. Some breeds of Wolves are, like Dogs, domesticated, to become a Working Dog.

Loyal and they always find the path, they are pathfinders and all knowers

The smart and deadly creatures

That will be awesome! - Pegasister12


16 Siberian Husky Siberian Husky The Siberian Husky is a medium size, dense-coat working dog breed that originated in north-eastern Siberia.
