As the latest installment in the Harry Potter franchise, Hogwarts Legacy, made its debut, gamers were left in stitches after discovering a surprising resemblance in the game. The character of Dobby the house elf, who has taken the video game world by storm, bears a striking similarity to the iconic comedic actor, Rowan Atkinson, best known for his role as Mr. Bean.

Social media has been buzzing with reactions to this mash-up that gamers never knew they needed. Despite the controversy surrounding the game and calls for a boycott due to J.K. Rowling’s controversial tweets, gamers have been quick to purchase the game and share their favorite moments on social media. One moment, in particular, has caused quite a stir – Dobby’s sassy character and uncanny resemblance to Atkinson.

Clips shared on social media show Dobby dancing in the Hogwarts kitchen with his hands on his hips and a nonchalant expression that is alarmingly similar to Atkinson’s wide-eyed stare. Fans of the game have flocked to TikTok to point out the similarities between the house elf and comedic actor, with comments ranging from “Why is Mr. Bean cosplaying as Dobby?” to “IS THAT MR. BEAN?????”

In addition to Dobby’s uncanny resemblance to Atkinson, gamers have also been amazed by his impressive dance moves in the game. One user commented, “This is a serve. There’s never been a bigger slay.” Another added, “We should have a dance party with him bro.”

However, not everyone was thrilled with the in-game depiction of the Hogwarts kitchen, with some gamers alarmed by the lack of food safety regulations being implemented. One user resolved never to eat at Hogwarts again, commenting, “I will not be ordering the steak at Hogwarts, thanks.” Another added, “Never eating at Hogwarts.” As it turns out, Dobby’s cooking skills may not be the only thing gamers have to worry about in this latest installment of the wizarding world.
