Fluffy is an Animal minifigure from the LEGO Theme Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, a physical minifigure was released in 2001, with the character also appearing in the video game LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4.


Fluffy is a monstrous three-headed giant dog provided by Hagrid to guard the trapdoor leading to the underground chamber where the Philosopher's Stone was hidden. The only known way to get past Fluffy is to lull him to sleep by playing music. In the book and film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Harry, Ron, Hermione and Neville accidentally run into Fluffy whilst hiding from Peeves, who was attempting to give them away to caretaker Argus Filch, who was searching for them. On Halloween, Harry and Ron witness Snape entering the door to Fluffy’s chamber, and for the next few days having a pronounced limp. Harry also overhears him saying "How are you meant to keep your eyes on all three heads at once?" to Filch. However, it is later revealed that he followed Hogwarts Defence Against the Dark Arts professor Quirrell into the chamber. While Fluffy is guarding the Philosopher’s Stone, Professor Quirrell penetrates Fluffy’s defences by playing a harp, in order to access the trapdoor, while Harry uses a flute that had been given to him by Hagrid.
