How to Open Magical Creatures Doors


Hello everyone. Here is our guide on how to open Magical Creatures Doors. While exploring Hogwarts, you will occasionally stumble upon these mysterious doors. At first glance, they may look confusing, but once you understand how they work, you’ll have no problems solving their puzzles and opening them.

The way these doors work is fairly simple. The numbers on the corners of each triangle need to add up to the number that is inside them. In order to figure out which creature represents each number, you can find a note near the Divination Classroom that will help you with that. Go to the Divination Classroom Floo Flames and enter the pathway near it. Follow the wooden walkway and turn right when you can.

You’ll find yourself near one of the Magical Creatures Doors. You’ll notice a chest nearby. Inside the chest, you will find a note that will help you solve the door puzzles.

  • 0 – Demiguise
  • 1 – Unicorn
  • 2 – Graphorn
  • 3 – Runespoor
  • 4 – Fwooper
  • 5 – Quintaped
  • 6 – Lizard
  • 7 – Squid
  • 8 – Spider
  • 9 – Hydra

Also, you don’t really need this note to solve the door puzzles. If you look at the creature symbols on any of the doors, they all start (clockwise from bottom-left to bottom-right) with a Demiguise (0) and end up with a Hydra (9). That way, you can easily know which creature represents which number.

Let’s look at one of the doors and solve it using this information.

In the top triangle, we have a Quintaped (5), a Lizard (6), and a “?”. Adding these three should result in number 15. If we add 5 and 6 together, we’ll get 11, so that means that the “?” number is 4, which represents a Fwooper. Go to the “?” plate, and interact with it until you get a Fwooper.

Next, we can check the second triangle. It has the number 13, a Demiguise (0), and a “??”. These need to add up to 18. Since 13 + 0 is equal to 13, that means that the “??” number is 5, which represents a Quintaped. Go to the “??” plate, and interact with it until you get a Quintaped.

Once you do that, go back to the door, and press the interact button to open it.
