Some of the most effective ways to turn a frog back into a human include the use of True Love’s kiss, performing a magical ritual, and kissing a princess/important female figure to remind the frog of their potential, duties, and abilities.
- As the person was turned to a toad/frog via magic, it is only logical that he/she can be turned back to normal using magic as well.
- Magic is defined as an extraordinary power or influence derived from a supernatural sources, which means that it has the power to reverse any magical enchantments.
- For the magic to work, the magician has to not only change them physically but also change how others perceive them.
- In a way, the frog part in them must die so that the human part can be revived.
- It is also important to seek the knowledge of an experienced magician, as “the magician’s knowledge and abilities play a significant role” in the enchantment’s efficacy.
2. True Love’s Kiss
- Another way to reverse such a spell is to apply a true love’s kiss, a special magical kiss.
- A true love’s kiss has the power to lift any magical enchantment, “cure 99.9% of magical maladies and curses, and restore memories.”
- For that to work, our frog person needs to find someone they truly love and that love them back. If the love is not reciprocated, the spell will not be lifted.
- The tricky part is that true love does not come by so often or quickly, so the frog might have to wait awhile before the opportunity presents itself for that plan to work. Plus there is also the issue with loving a frog.
3. Kissing a Princess/Important Figure
- Another way to turn back a frog into a person, especially if that person is an important figure/prince, is to be kissed by a princess/another important figure.
- This phenomenon was first described by the Brothers Grimm in their fable the Frog and the Princess.
- The idea behind it is that the kiss would remind the prince/important person of who they really are and turn them back to normal.
- In that scenario, the prince/princess also usually end living happily ever after, so it’s a win-win for everyone.
- Another interpretation of such a kiss is that it allows the frog to feel important and loved, which would allow them to feel more confident in their own abilities and break the spell through their own free-will.
