Animation is the ability to bring inanimate objects to life. This allows users to bring objects such as statues to life and have them do their bidding. These animated objects can move independently, but have no mind of their own. They can be controlled mentally or through spoken commands.
- Gargoyles are statues that animate themselves to ward off evil when it is near.
- Several suits of armor at Magic School are enchanted to help students practice their offensive powers.
- Ambrose used this ability to temporarily bring a statue to life to block a door.
