1. Fat Lady’s Portrait
This is the first password you will get. When you are trying to find Hermione
at the beginning of the game you need to find the password to get into
Gryffindor Tower. At this point in the game there is usually a Gryffindor
running up or down the staircase near you. Grab them and ask them if they know
the portrait password. If there is not a member of Gryffindor near you then
find any Gryffindor and they will tell you. When you do find out the password
you need is "Mimbulus mimbletonia".
2. Damara Dodderige’s Portrait
You must speak with this woman when you see her on the Grand Staircase on a
Third Floor landing. If you try to talk to her in her other portrait she will
just snooze on. To get her password is very simple. All you need to do is go
down the staircase to talk to the painting of Gifford Ollerton on the first
floor. When you have asked him for her food return to her portrait and she
will tell you the password is “Chops and Gravy”.
3. Gifford Ollerton’s Portrait
You must talk to his portrait on the first floor landing of the Grand
Staircase. When you do he will tell you that he may only let someone from
Hufflepuff through unless they have the password. To get the password you need
to have helped a member from Hufflepuff House. So the simple solution is to
find someone from Hufflepuff and ask them for the password. I can usually find
one in the Entrance Hall to talk to. When you have found one, they will
remember that you helped Cederic Diggory last year at Hogwarts so they will
tell you the password is “Dragon’s egg”.
4. Percival Pratt’s Portrait
This rhyming man can be found on the fifth floor landing of the Grand
Staircase. He will ask you to “seek the man with faces three”. To find the guy
with three faces you need to go up to the seventh floor near the Room of
Requirements. If you stand with your back to the door for the Room of
Requirements and walk down the corridor in front of you, the portrait you are
looking for is on your left at the end of the corridor. It is covered in
cobwebs so you will need to use Incendio on his portrait first before you can
talk to him. When you do he will tell you to find Basil Von Fronsac.
To find him you need to go to the portrait on the second floor landing on the
Grand Staircase. When you talk to him he will send you to the portrait of the
Shepherdess on the second floor landing which is very confusing as you are on
that. The secret is he means another second floor landing. You need to go to
the corridor on the second floor. When you get to the corridor you will find
some stairs that keep turning back on themselves with landings in between. The
shepherdess in on the second landing down. Talk to her and she will tell you
to talk to Google Stump. To find him you need to go to the Viaduct Entrance.
When you get there you will find Google Stump to the right at the bottom of
the stairs. He will direct you to Gifford Abbot at the bottom of the Grand
Staircase. He is the Hufflepuff portrait whose password is “Dragon’s Egg”.
Talk to him and he tells “This password is absurd”.
5. Boris the Bewildered’s Portrait
This portrait is in the Third Floor corridor near the broken suits of armour.
To get his password you need to talk to someone who was at Hogwarts fifty
years ago. If you know your Hogwarts well enough you will remember that
Moaning Myrtle was killed at Hogwarts fifty years ago by a Basilisk. Go to her
bathroom and talk to her and she will tell you the password is
6. Library Portrait
To get this password you need to bring him the headline from today’s Daily
Prophet because this is a staff passage and he won’t let you through any other
way. To get a copy of the Daily Prophet you need to go to the Great Hall and
walk to the far end of the Hall. Find the Headmaster’s Lectern in front of the
teacher’s table and first cast Depulso on it to see a quick cur scene of the
bird windows in the rafters. (You will also see the roof which is an unheard
of thing in Hogwarts.) When you have done that cast Wingardium Leviosa on the
lectern and you will see four owls fly down over the tables. One of them was
carrying the Daily Prophet. Run over and pick it up then go back to the
portrait in the Library and tell him the “news”. He will then tell you the
password is “No News Is Good News”.
7. Google Stump’s Portrait
You must talk to his portrait on a second floor landing on the Grand Staircase.
He will tell you to find a first year Ravenclaw student and ask them where
Rowena Ravenclaw came from. Head down to the Entrance Hall and you will find
one there. Ask them and they will tell you she came from the Glens. Go back to
Google and he will grant you access and tell you the password is
8. Basil Von Fronsac’s Portrait
He can be found in the Viaduct Entrance to the right of the bottom of the
stairs. He will only tell you the password if you can get rid of anyone within
earshot. This is the easiest password to get. Pull out your wand and aim it at
everyone in the entrance so they run away. When you have cleared them out talk
to the portrait again and he will tell you the password is “Volo Futrus Unus”.
9. Dungeon’s Portrait
This portrait is the one you need to open so that Hannah Abbot will attend the
first DA meeting. He can be found up one flight of stairs in the Dungeon at
the base of the Grand Staircase. All you have to do is talk to him and he will
tell you the password is “Scurrilous Scoundrel”.
10. Herbology Portrait
This guy is apparently a bit fed up with looking at the portrait opposite him.
All it is is a picture of an eye but you need to cover it up for him to give
you the password. To do this you must repair the two broken suits of armour
either side of the picture. Use Reparo on them both and a banner will drop
down to cover the picture. When this is done talk to the Portrait and he will
tell you the password is “Flaming Earwigs”.
11. Slytherin Portrait
To find this one go all the way to the end of the Dungeon Corridor and talk to
her. She will tell you that she only lets in people with the password and only
Slytherins have the password. To get this password you will need your
invisibility cloak so go up to the dormitory and get it on. When you have it
go back down to the portrait and you will over hear a group of first year
Slytherins talking about using the passage so they aren’t late for their
potions lesson. Follow them down to the end of the corridor and they will use
the password. Now that you have over heard it you can now go back up and put
the invisibility cloak back then go and tell her the password is “Slytherins
12. Crazy Portrait
This portrait is found on the seventh floor and he will ask you to find "him".
By this he means that you must find his "other" portrait. Go down to the fourth
floor and find him then cast Incendio on the cobwebs covering him up. Talk to
him and he will tell you that the password is "Three heads are better than
