Best Patronuses


The Top Ten

1 Lion Lion The lion is one of the big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies in Africa.
2 Phoenix Phoenix

Albus Dumbledore's Patronus. Phoenixes are awesome. These immortal fire birds are my favourite animals. - Goku02

Best so far - Cyclne

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.) - NerdBunny

3 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.
4 Dog Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.
5 Elephant Elephant

I love elaphants

6 Shark Shark Sharks are a group of fish characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Sharks have been around before the earth's first dinosaurs and even the earth's first trees.
7 Falcon Falcon
8 Giraffe Giraffe The giraffe is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest living terrestrial animal and the largest ruminant.
9 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.

Strongest patronous

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

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.

Literally possibly the most badass thing out there, so beautiful yet so feared and powerful. It’s inspring

The Newcomers

? Otter Otter Otters are carnivorous mammals in the subfamily Lutrinae. The 13 extant otter species are all semiaquatic, aquatic or marine, with diets based on fish and invertebrates.

Why wasn’t this already on there? This is my patronus. I’m offended. - Hermione_Granger220

? Boar

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!

The Contenders

11 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.

Wolves are brave, intelligent and brave.

12 Lynx Lynx A lynx is any of the four species within the Lynx genus of medium-sized wild cats, which includes the bobcat.

I wish this was up higher...the lynx are amazing animals, and they would make for outstanding patronuses, too. Both skilled and fair (they just do what is needed to survive,) I think the lynx deserves a higher spot on this list. - LuanTheHetalianRavenclaw

13 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.

Love it. Sometimes I wish this was my patronus, but I’m happy with my otter. - Hermione_Granger220
