Hogwarts Legacy proves Harry Potter characters are abhorrently filthy

The universe of Harry Potter is completely filthy, as proven by Warner Bros’ new magical RPG Hogwarts Legacy. What was once filled with wonder and delight is now crusted over with more grime than you could possibly imagine.

As pointed out by fans on the Harry Potter game subreddit, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is far behind on its cleaning. Even with magic on their side, the witches and wizards in Hogwarts Legacy are still grossly unclean.

In one picture, a fan pointed out that the common room baths in the video game are disgustingly grimy. The taps of the bath are coated in a thick layer of rust and dirt, and the bottom rim is just as filthy, dyed a permanent copper from the dirt.

Now, it’s not weird for a bathtub to get dirty, but for it to not be cleaned ever is ridiculous… not the spell! In the Harry Potter universe, just a flick of the wand would take all of that dirt away, and there has to be at least one clean freak in the entire school.

Furthermore, as much as people hate to bring it up, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry happily makes use of slave labour across the entire campus. Enslaved House Elves are cooking, cleaning and more everywhere! Not one of them has been ordered to clean these baths?!

At this point, we shouldn’t be surprised, should we? We’re all away of just how nasty the witches and wizards of the Harry Potter universe are. While not shown in Hogwarts Legacy, it’s common knowledge now that witches and wizards in this universe used to soil their robes and magic it away. Thanks for that, Rowling!

In fact, there is a possibility that your character is doing that throughout the entirety of Hogwarts Legacy. Not once do we have to spend five minutes to take a deuce! Coincidence? I think not!

Even if Rowling’s blatant transphobia hasn’t grossed you out, the sheer disgust and laziness of Hogwarts’ cleaning staff should. Sure, I may forget to wash a cup of tea for a few days, but I don’t have magic on my side. If I, a 25-year-old gamer, have a cleaner bathtub than a Wizard who can magic dirt away in seconds, something is terribly wrong here. This must be why Fantastic Beasts failed.

Avalanche, if you’re listening, you need to get the cleaners in on the next update for Hogwarts Legacy. This filth cannot stand!
