Top Ten Animals and Mythical Creatures to Have as a PatronusIf 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
Fiery, powerful, & feared. A Slytherin's or Gryffindor's patronus.
Dragons are giant winged, fire -breathing reptiles. Widely regarded as terrifying yet awe-inspiring, they can be found all over the world and are frequently referred to in Asian and medieval European folklore.
I'm pretty sure my Patronus would be a dragon. A naturally intelligent, wild and energetic creature.
Naturally a meat eating, destroyer, loot stealer to keep it in a den, kidnapper of princess, everything you don't want.
I love the mythos about the phoenix and how it rises from its ashes. It's such a powerful symbol and a very unique patronus to have. But then Dumbledore was a very unique wizard. But I really enjoy the story about the mouse patronus. The man who had this mouse patronus was thought of as "weak" and laughed at because it was so small but his patronus ended up beating the dementors that plagued his village when all the other "strong" patronus failed. So he was proclaimed the hero and his small lil mouse patronus hailed as the strongest. It just goes to show you that it doesn't matter what form your patronus takes but the feeling and strength of will behind it. (Rowling wrote this story as an article on Pottermore in case anyone wants to read it or check it out on the Harry Potter wikia page.)
Fiery, graceful, & strong. A Ravenclaw's, Gryffindor's or Slytherins patronus.
Absolutely majestic. Wanted one since forever. I think a Pheonix would make a very cool patronus!
Albus Dumbledore's Patronus. Phoenixes are awesome. These immortal fire birds are my favourite animals.
I would get a Shiba Inu because they protect their owners so if my overprotective mom or relatives sees me walking with other dogs nearby I can trust my shiba to reassure them that the other dogs will not harm us.
Probably a bit biased as a husky is my Patronus, but still!
More specifically, one of my own dogs.
I unleash the power of Ozzy... my dog!
My online namesake is a hawk. And you all know I'm perceptive and powerful.
I like peanuts.
My patronus is a hawk as well.
I think I am a hawk.
A highly evolved creature, and the animal we're closest to communicating with.
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
Cheerful, yet a strong opponent.
I would love for my Patronus to be a pegasus. Majestic and graceful creatures, if they existed.
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.
Intelligent, fierce, & graceful. A Ravenclaw's or Gryffindor's patronus.
"Eagle is the king of bird and I like this amazing bird"
Love it. Sometimes I wish this was my patronus, but I’m happy with my otter.
I may be a bit baised as my Patronus is a Nebelung cat but I think that cats are a fine Patronus animal- also Minerva McGonagall has a cat Patronus and who wouldn’t want to share something in common with her?
This probably the bird I identify most with. It suits me, don't you think.
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...
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.
This is what I got in Pottermore. According to some site:
“ If you have an Adder patronus, you most likely are a very lovely person to be around, until someone pushes your buttons.”
“ People with Adder patronuses have a soft spot for those younger than them.”
Cool. I guess it describes me...? Lol
Loyal and they always find the path, they are pathfinders and all knowers
I really wish I had one of these there so cool and majestic
The smart and deadly creatures
That will be awesome!
I have a unicorn as my patronus!
My patronus. Gryphons are beautiful, powerful, and extremely intelligent.
Wise, fierce, loyal, magical, and they can fly!
Bravery, strength, & unwavering loyalty. A Gryffindor's or Hufflepuff's.
Underestimated, brave, & calm except under attack. A Ravenclaw's patronus
My mom would have this.
This is my Patronus to and I couldn't be happier
This is my Patronus and it is awesome.
Represents strength and power
This is my patronus on Pottermore
Strong, protective, & kind. Either a Gryffindor's or a Hufflepuff's patronus.
I love elaphants
Beautiful and majestic yet possesive of its eggs and kills anyone or anything that comes near its eggs
The good kind, not the evil kind.
For the fast cats!
These are the most powerful, yet graceful.
it repersents intelligence, bravery
it is open-minded and great leaders
One of the most ethereal creatures unknown to most.
The killer whale or orca ( Orcinus orca) is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family, of which it is the largest member. Killer whales have a diverse diet, although individual populations often specialize in particular types of prey. Some feed exclusively on fish, while others hunt marine mammals such as seals and dolphins. They have been known to attack baleen whale calves, and even adult whales. Killer whales are apex predators, as there is no animal that preys on them. Killer whales are considered a cosmopolitan species, and can be found in each of the world's oceans in a variety of marine environments, from Arctic and Antarctic regions to tropical seas.
The best patronus. Harry and James had their patronus as stag. It represents courage and strength
Minks are so cute. I got it in pottermore.
In China, the boar is a symbol of strength and virility.
To the ancient Celts and Northern Europeans, the boar was a warrior.
Wild boars are mainly independent creatures, preferring to be by themselves rather than in a pack.
A boar challenges its opponents with its posture. If the boar can overpower its opponent with a simple push, violence is spared and there will be no fight.
However, if the opponent can not be overpowered so simply, a fight will ensue. A boar is strong, powerful, athletic, and relentless. When they have to fight, they are ferocious. They jab their opponent with their tusks. If need be, they will fight to the death to protect what is theirs.
A wild boar can weigh up to 200+ pounds, but many can weigh much more.
In conclusion, you do not want to start a fight with a wild boar!
Same, but I love my patronus. Otters are cute, loyal, skilled, and playful. What could be better?
I'm offended too! Otters are nice, loyal, smart, and, best of all, cute! This is my patronus and I'm happy with it. It should most certainly be in the top ten.
This is my patronus. Although I’d like to have a cat...
Why wasn’t this already on there? This is my patronus. I’m offended.
My patrons is a hyena.
