So you think you know everything about Harry Potter & the potions in the books? Play our Harry Potter Potions Quiz and see just how well you know all the potions! One of the core subjects in Harry's curriculum is Potions, taught by Professor Severus Snape. Harry and his friends have learned to make dozens of useful potions, ranging from the Polyjuice Potion to the Draught of Living Death. Harry even learns later in the series that his mother was something of a potions prodigy herself.

Since its beginning in 1997, Harry Potter has been a favorite for kids, teens and adults. The immensely popular book series has paved the way for movies, video games, a spinoff series and an entire area of Universal Studios in Florida. It tells the story of Harry Potter, an 11-year-old boy who discovers his magical heritage and travels to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where he learns how to make Harry Potter potions.

Fun Facts

Did you know that the name "Felix Felicis" actually translates to "luck of luck" in Latin? J. K. Rowling commonly uses other languages for inspiration when naming magical things in her universe. The potion used in Harry's sixth year is one of the most difficult potions in the universe to brew, requiring six months to stew. One mistake brewing this potion can have disastrous results.

Even though plenty of potions have been shown in the main series, additions to the universe have expanded upon the potions lore even more. Video games, internet posts from the author herself and a card game have introduced unique potions and spells in the universe, including one to turn the drinker's head into a pumpkin and another that makes the drinker fart rapidly.
