Lethal Adversaries are Coming to Wizards Unite!

Adversaries first debuted in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite in December 2020. Almost a year later, in November 2021, Lethal Adversaries will join Feared Adversaries in the game.

Thank you Niantic and WB Games for sharing this information and these photos with me so I could create this article. 


Lethal Adversaries Overview

The Challenges Registry lists 5 Lethal Adversaries. These are:

  • Barty Crouch Junior
  • Lucius Malfoy
  • Dolores Umbridge
  • Bellatrix Lestrange
  • Lord Voldemort

The first Lethal Adversaries event is scheduled for November 5, 2021. This will introduce Barty Crouch Junior to the game. Subsequent events will introduce Dolores Umbridge, Lucius Malfoy, and Bellatrix Lestrange (in that order). Eventually players will be able to face Lord Voldemort himself!

Unlike Feared Adversaries, which can appear on the Map randomly, Lethal Adversaries will only be available during events and/or when using an Edible Dark Mark.

Lethal Adversaries will have 3 Guards each that players must defeat before facing the final Adversary. (Lord Voldemort will have 4 Guards).

Due to the difficulty of Lethal Adversaries, players will have a new combat feature: Maximas!


To cast Maximas, fill up the purple Initiative bar at the bottom left of the screen by casting spells and consuming Potions. When the Initiative bar is maxed, point your wand at the purple target icon to cast a powerful Maxima. This spell will use two Spell Energy and cause far more damage to your opponent.

At the moment, we do not know how long it will take to fill up the Initiative bar nor do we know what the Damage output will be by casting Maximas. I’m sure researchers will figure this out after the first Lethal Adversaries event!

This week, a few WUtubers created teaser videos to introduce Lethal Adversaries.

Good to have these. Something new and a challenge. Still wondering how hard they will be. I only have one profession lesson left so I’m also wondering how that will play in to things. I think part of the reason why they delayed these is to allow players to finish more lessons so they don’t get wiped out so I quickly. Sounds like much more energy and potions are going to be needed. That is fine as I have built up a bunch and these are not meant for the lower players. Hopefully completing these are not a task for… Read more »
