[This week, Destructoid is presented by Mable & The Wood, a stylish, combat-optional Metroidvania that pits our shapeshifting pixelated protagonist against massive beasts and mysterious wonders.]
Shapeshifting is a time-honored tradition across the spectrum of science fiction and fantasy and was a lot of fun to design a game around. Please join hands as we look back at a selection of notable 'shifters throughout the annuls of time.
#9 - Nymphadora Tonks (Harry Potter)
Tonks is a Dark Wizard-catching metamorphmagus, meaning she has the rare innate power to change her appearance at will. While she mostly uses that power to have fun and show off, her magical skills as an Auror and ability to perform non-verbal spells make her one of the more unique and powerful wizards of the Harry Potter series. We haven't watched The Deathly Hallows Part 2 yet, but we can't wait to see Tonks live a long and happy life with Professor Remus!
