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.
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.
Naturally a meat eating, destroyer, loot stealer to keep it in a den, kidnapper of princess, everything you don't want.
I'm pretty sure my Patronus would be a dragon. A naturally intelligent, wild and energetic creature.
I thought this was going to be my Patronus! Unfortunately, it was just a Newfoundland.
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.)
Phoenixes are made of FIRE. They can live 6x as long as any human. Phoenixes are altogether AWESOME. Plus, why just breath fire when you can be made of fire?
Albus Dumbledore's Patronus. Phoenixes are awesome. These immortal fire birds are my favourite animals.
Absolutely majestic. Wanted one since forever. I think a Pheonix would make a very cool patronus!
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.
Dogs deserve to be the third place as a Patronus because they are loyal and protective. My Patronus is actually a Bernese Mountain Dog!
Probably a bit biased as a husky is my Patronus, but still!
More specifically, one of my own dogs.
My online namesake is a hawk. And you all know I'm perceptive and powerful.
My patronus is a hawk as well.
I think I am a hawk.
I like peanuts.
The Pegasus represents pride and majesty, which is why it's a perfect Patronus. The Pegasus is a loyal creature that is not defeated easily. It's a perfect beast to have under your power.
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.
My Patronus would definitely be a dolphin, they are naturally protective, intelligent, and swift!
A highly evolved creature, and the animal we're closest to communicating with.
What about Kanzi the bonobo and Coco the gorilla? We've already established communication with them to a certain extent.
I think this would be mine. If always had a soft spot for dolphins
Intelligent, fierce, & graceful. A Ravenclaw's or Gryffindor's patronus.
Love it. Sometimes I wish this was my patronus, but I'm happy with my otter.
How exactly can a centaur be a patronus? It can only be an animal...
Gorillas are the largest living primates, reaching heights between 1.25 and 1.8 metres, weights between 100 and 270 kg, and arm spans up to 2.6 metres, depending on species and sex. They tend to live in troops, with the leader being called a silverback. The Eastern gorilla is distinguished from the Western by darker fur colour and some other minor morphological differences. Gorillas tend to live 35–40 years in the wild. The oldest gorilla ever is Fatou (b. 1957), who is still alive at the advanced age of 65 years. ...read more.
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...
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.
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
Wolves are brave, intelligent and brave.
Loyal and they always find the path, they are pathfinders and all knowers
That will be awesome!
Bravery, strength, & unwavering loyalty. A Gryffindor's or Hufflepuff's.
My patronus. Gryphons are beautiful, powerful, and extremely intelligent.
How is this not in top 10? Griffins are amazing. Half lion, half eagle.
Wise, fierce, loyal, magical, and they can fly!
I have a unicorn as my patronus!
Underestimated, brave, & calm except under attack. A Ravenclaw's patronus
They are a duplicate of griffins except with a better name. But I still love them.
This is my Patronus and it is awesome.
Strong, protective, & kind. Either a Gryffindor's or a Hufflepuff's patronus.
One of the most ethereal creatures unknown to most.
