LevicorpusEdit Levicorpus sectionEdit

Seth CooperAdded by Seth Cooper

Pronunciation: lev-ee-COR-pus
Description: The victim is dangled upside-down by their ankles, sometimes accompanied by a flash of light (this may be a variant of the spell).
Seen/Mentioned: Apparently invented by the Half-Blood Prince; it is a non-verbal-only spell (although it is whispered by Hermione in 1997). Harry Potter learnt it by reading the notes written by the Half-Blood Prince. He used it on Ron. The previous year, Harry had seen (through the Pensieveused by Severus Snape) his father, James Potter, use the spell against Professor Snape. In the Order of the Phoenix film, Luna Lovegood somehow uses this against a Death Eater, although she speaks it, and the spell's name is unknown to any students until Half-Blood Prince.
Etymology: Latin levare, "raise" and corpus, "body".

LiberacorpusEdit Liberacorpus sectionEdit

Pronunciation: LIB-er-ah-cor-pus

Seen/Mentioned: Harry used the spell in 1996 to counteract Levicorpus he had inadvertently cast on Ron.
Etymology: Latin liberare, "to free", and corpus, "body".
Notes: It is not clear why Levicorpus has a specific counter-spell, and is not neutralized by simply using Finite Incantatem, although this could be due to the fact that Snape invented the spell and therefore made it irreversible except by its specific counter-curse.

Locomotor (name of object)Edit Locomotor (name of object) sectionEdit

Pronunciation: LOH-koh-moh-tor
Description: The spell is always used with the name of a target, at which the wand is pointed (e.g. "Locomotor Trunk!"). The spell causes the named object to rise in the air and move around at the will of the caster.
Seen/Mentioned: Used by Nymphadora Tonks in Harry Potter to move Harry's trunk from his room. Filius Flitwick similarly used it to move Sybill Trelawney's trunk after Dolores Umbridge sacked her. Parvati Patil andLavender Brown used this spell to race their pencil cases around the edges of the table. A variation seen in1998 is Piertotum Locomotor, which caused the statues of Hogwarts to be animated.
Etymology: Latin locus (place) and moto, "set in motion" (passive motor), or English locomotion.

Locket CurseEdit Locket Curse sectionEdit

  • Pronunciation: Uknown
  • Description: This curse was stored in Salazar Slytherin's Locket. When the locket is opened, a cloud of dark matter blasts back anything standing by the now opened locket, like a shockwave.

Seen/Mentioned: Used by Draco Malfoy on Neville Longbottom in 1991. Used by Harry Potter on Draco Malfoy, who deflected it, in 1996.
Etymology: English locomotion, "movement" + Latinmortis, "of death".
Notes: It is unclear whether or how this spell is related to the Locomotor spell. It could, however, be that the curse "locks" any part of the body in accordance to where it is pointed, or moves the body into a position of the caster's choosing whilst placing them into an immobile state. It is possible that Draco had pointed his wand at Neville and the curse "locked" his legs together.
Notes (2): It can be bought at Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment in Diagon Alley in Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4.

LumosEdit Lumos sectionEdit

Seth CooperAdded by Seth Cooper

Seen/Mentioned: Used by Hermione to free Ron from theDevil's Snare. The incantation was only used in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
Etymology: Derived from two words; the Latin lumen, meaning "light", and the Latin word for "sun", which in its accusative case is "solem".
Notes: It is possible that the quality of the light is on the warmer solar end of the spectrum; Considering the known uses that the spell has been put to, it isn't that much of a stretch to presume that the spell is used to conjure Sunlight.
Lumos Maxima
Mario142369Added by Mario142369

Pronunciation: LOO-mos Ma-cks-ima
Description: Shoots a ball of light at the place pointed, if the Wand is swung.

Seen/Mentioned: In 1993Hermione Granger used the spell to move a Christmas Tree in The Three Broomsticks beside her table to hide Harry Potter, who was in Hogsmeade illegally.
Etymology: Latin mobilis, "movable" or "flexible", and arbor (alternatively arbos), "tree".
Notes: It is possible that Mobilicorpus and Mobiliarbus are variations of the same basic spell, since they share the "Mobili-" stem.

MobilicorpusEdit Mobilicorpus sectionEdit

Pronunciation: MO-bil-ee-COR-pus
Description: Levitates and moves bodies.
Seen/Mentioned: Sirius Black used it on Severus Snape in 1994. It was probably used on Peter Pettigrew byLord Voldemort in the graveyard to make him come forward.

Voldatrix12Added by Voldatrix12

Morsmordre (Dark Mark)Edit Morsmordre (Dark Mark) sectionEdit

KickAssJediAdded by KickAssJedi

Pronunciation: morz-MOR-duh, morz-MOHR-dah
Description: Conjures the Dark Mark.
Seen/Mentioned: Used by Barty Crouch Jr in 1994. Also seen in 1997over the castle to lure Albus Dumbledore to his death. It was apparently invented by Lord Voldemort.
Etymology: Latin mors, "death", and mordere, meaning "to bite" (or its French derivative mordre); this would appear to be associated with the name of Lord Voldemort's followers, the Death Eaters. The English murdermight also contribute.
Notes: A possible translation might be "take a bite out of death", a fitting phrase for Death Eaters.

MuffliatoEdit Muffliato sectionEdit

Pronunciation: muf-lee-AH-to
Description: This spell fills peoples' ears with an unidentifiable buzzing to keep them from hearing nearby conversations.
Seen/Mentioned: It was used in 1996 by Harry Potter and Ron Weasley on various teachers and people such as Madam Pomfrey. It was created by Severus Snape. As pointed out by Hermione, it is probably notMinistry of Magic approved. It was also used in 1997 by Hermione Granger in protection of the camp-site where Harry and her stayed in hiding.
Etymology: English muffle, "to quiet", with a pseudo-Latin or pseudo-Italian ending.

MulticorforsEdit Multicorfors sectionEdit

Pronunciation: mull-tee-COR-fors
Description: Multicorfors is a charm used to change the colour of one's clothing.

NEdit N sectionEdit

NoxEdit Nox sectionEdit

Pronunciation: Nocks
Description: Turns off the light produced by Lumos.
Seen/Mentioned: In 1994Harry Potter and Hermione Granger used this spell to turn off their wand-lights in the Shrieking Shack. Used in 1998 when Harry was in the passage beneath the Whomping Willow which leads to the Shrieking Shack. Lumos's power can be arranged so that a powerful wizard can make the charm illuminate intensely or to the wizards liking by loudness of incantation. For example "LUMOS!!!" would be powerful and "lumos" would be weaker. Also used by Harry Potter in 1998 to turn off the light so he could hide the Marauder's Map from Severus Snape.
Etymology: Latin nox, meaning "night".

OEdit O sectionEdit

(Obliteration Charm)Edit (Obliteration Charm) sectionEdit

Description: Removes footprints.
Seen/Mentioned: Used by Hermione in 1995 to remove the footprints that she, Harry, and Ron left in the snow while walking to Hagrid's hut. Also used in 1997 by Hermione to remove the footprints she and Harry left behind them in the snow as they journeyed through Godric's Hollow.
Notes: The above instance in book five only reveals that the Obliteration Charm can remove footprints. There is no explanation as to what effect it can have on other things. It could possibly destroy things, according to its name.

Obliviate (Memory Charm)Edit Obliviate (Memory Charm) sectionEdit

Obliviate used by Lockhart in 1993
SmonoccoAdded by Smonocco

Pronunciation: oh-BLI-vee-ate
Description: Used to hide a memory of a particular event.
Seen/Mentioned: First seen in 1993 when used by Gilderoy Lockhart on Harry and Ron; the spell backfired due to a faulty wand, costing Lockhart most of his own memory. Also, Hermione Granger used this spell to wipe her parents memories in 1997. Again, it was used in 1997 when Hermione Granger used the spell on 2 Death Eaters who had followed Harry, Ron, and Hermione after their escape from Bill Weasley's and Fleur Delacour's wedding.
Etymology: Latin oblivisci, "forget". The spell is most often used against Muggles who have seen something of the Wizarding world.
Notes: Memory Charms are confirmed on J.K. Rowling's website to have been developed by a witch named Mnemone Radford, who became the Ministry's first Obliviator. The Ministry of Magic employees assigned to modifying the memories of Muggles are called Obliviators. The charm can be broken by powerful magic, or extreme duress, as Lord Voldemort was able to torture Bertha Jorkins into remembering details that Barty Crouch Sr had forced her to forget using the charm. In this case, it was also shown that if the charm is too powerful, it can cause the target to develop a bad memory. This spell differs from the False Memory Charm.

Description: Makes a bouquet of flowers appear out of the caster's wand.
Seen/Mentioned: Used in 1994 by Mr. Ollivander to test Fleur Delacour's wand. Probably used non-verbally by Tom Riddle to present flowers to Mrs. Smith.
Etymology: English orchid and Latin suffix -eous, "of or bearing (the root word)".
Notes: A variation of this spell may have been used when Hermione Granger conjured a Christmas wreath to place on James and Lily Potter's graves in 1997.

Description: Makes objects permanently stay in place.
Seen/Mentioned: First mentioned in 1995, when Sirius Black suspected that his mother's painting was fixed to the wall with such a Charm. It is implied that the portrait in the Muggle Prime Minister's office also has such a charm on it.
Notes: It is never said whether the charm prevents the object from being removed by cutting away the section of wall. The incantation could be gluten sempra, meaning glue forever, or adher sempra, which means stick forever.

Notes: It is not known if the spell works or not. It also suspiciously sounds like "Pesky pixie pester no me."

Piertotum LocomotorEdit Piertotum Locomotor sectionEdit

Description: Spell used to animate statues and suits of armour to do the caster's bidding.

Point Me (Four-Point Spell)Edit Point Me (Four-Point Spell) sectionEdit

Pronunciation: English phrase
Description: Causes the caster's wand to act as a compass, and point North.
Seen/Mentioned: Hermione Granger taught it to Harry Potter, who used it during the Triwizard Tournament, particularly to navigate the hedge maze during the Third Task.
Note: This spell may be an invention of Hermione Granger; it is unclear in the Goblet of Fire text whether she invented it herself or found it through research. Given that the incantation is English (whereas almost all other mentioned spells have incantations based on Latin or other old languages) and that none of the other champions of the Tournament seem to use the spell, it seems likely that Hermione invented the spell.

PortusEdit Portus sectionEdit

Pronunciation: POR-tus
Description: Turns an object into a port-key
Seen/Mentioned: Used by Albus Dumbledore in 1996.
Etymology: Latin porta, meaning "gate", or portare, meaning "to carry" (as in to carry the caster or target to another location). There is a Latin word portus, meaning "harbour", but it is inappropriate in this context.
Notes: Portkeys were first seen in 1994 as a means for Harry, Hermione, and the Weasleys to go to theQuidditch World Cup. However, the spell used in its creation was not seen until 1995.

Prior IncantatoEdit Prior Incantato sectionEdit

Pronunciation: pri-OR in-can-TAH-toh
Description: Causes the echo (a shadow or image) of the last spell cast by a wand to emanate from it.
Seen/Mentioned: Used by Amos Diggory in 1994 to discover the last spell cast by Harry's wand after it was found in the hands of Winky, a house-elf.
Etymology: Latin prior, "previous", and incantare, "to speak a spell" (past participle incantatum).
Notes: The nature of the "echo" depends on the original spell. The echo of a conjuring spell, for example, is the object conjured; the echo of the Cruciatus Curse is the screaming of the victim; the echo of an Avada Kedavra curse is the image of its victim.
Notes(2): Amos Diggory used this spell to find out if Harry's wand (held by Winky, Bartemius Crouch's house elf) cast the Dark Mark.
Notes(3): Apparently the spell is cumulative, with the user able to go further back and see spells that the wand performed after the latest spell. Harry suggests this in 1997. Hermione does not contradict his claim, suggesting this is true.

(Protean Charm)Edit (Protean Charm) sectionEdit

Description: Causes copies of an object to be remotely affected by changes made to the original.
Seen/Mentioned: First used in 1995Hermione Granger put the charm on a number of fake Galleons. Instead of the serial number around the edge of the coin, the time and date of the next meeting of Dumbledore's Armyappeared. It is possible that this charm is used on the Death Eaters' Dark Marks.
Etymology: The English word Protean derives from Proteus, a god in Greek Mythology. Proteus was a shape-shifter, able to take many forms. As a result, the word Protean has come to refer to versatility, flexibility, or an ability to assume many forms. "Protean" is also similar to "protein", derived from the same root, meaning a variable, flexible substance which forms strong bonds between its constituent parts.
Notes: On Hermione's fake galleons, when the date changes, the coin becomes hot, alerting the owner to look at the coin. This may not be a feature of the original charm. It may be a Flagrante Curse, when the Protean Charm changes the coin the curse may activate. It would seem from this that you can decide what the effects on the charmed objects are. Possibly by saying something along the lines of "Protean flagrante." although this is just speculation
Notes (2): The Protean Charm is a N.E.W.T. standard charm, according to Terry Boot, who is incredulous that Hermione can perform the spell even though she is only in her fifth year (N.E.W.T.s are taken in the seventh year at Hogwarts).

Protego (Shield Charm)Edit Protego (Shield Charm) sectionEdit

Pronunciation: pro-TAY-goh
Description: The Shield Charm causes minor to moderate jinxes, curses, and hexes to rebound upon the attacker.
Seen/Mentioned: First seen in 1995, in which Harry is taught this spell by Hermione in preparation for the third task in the Triwizard Tournament. Albus Dumbledore uses a similar spell which reverses the construction of glass back into sand when Voldemort sent shards of glass to try to stab Dumbledore. Fred and George Weasley enchanted hats they dubbed "shield hats" with this spell in 1997.
Etymology: Latin protego, "I cover" or "I protect".
Notes: The original description of this spell states that it rebounds minor jinxes to the caster. However, it is shown in the books that it can also be used to reflect or lessen the effects of more powerful spells, depending on the skill of the caster. In 1998, it is also shown to be able to create a sort of force-field across an area, and is used frequently to prevent two participants in an argument from reaching each other.

Pronunciation: re-DOO-see-oh
Description: Makes an enlarged object smaller. Counter-charm toEngorgio.
Seen/Mentioned: In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1Harry Potter, after checking his Blackthorn wand on the Bluebell flames withEngorgio, casts this spell to shorten the formerly enlarged flames.
Etymology: English reduce, "to shrink". (Latin has a verb reducere, present tense reduco. This is the source of the English "reduce", but has a different meaning.) Also in Italian Riduco first person present tense ofRidurre, same root of Latin Reducere.
Notes: Whether Reducio could also be used by itself rather than countering Engorgio is unknown. If it could, it would shrink normal sized items into miniature versions of themselves. References in 1992 by Arthur Weasleyto "shrinking door keys" make this seem likely.

ReparoEdit Reparo sectionEdit

Pronunciation: reh-PAH-roh
Description: Used to repair objects.
Seen/Mentioned: Countless times throughout the books. Shattered objects are often described as having "flown" back together. However, substances contained in the broken objects don't get back inside. In 1995Harry smashed a bowl of murtlap essence. He could repair the bowl but the murtlap essence remained splashed to the floor.
A form of this spell used by Hermione on Harry's glasses.
You-Know-WhoAdded by You-Know-Who

Etymology: Latin reparo meaning "to renew" or "repair". [9]
Notes: This is the final spell used in the Harry Potter series. Reparo has been seen to repair non-magical items, however it seems to have an inability at repairing magical items or items that have magic placed upon them. An example is Harry's Nimbus 2000 shown in 1993 which he is told is irreparable after it is destroyed by the Whomping Willow. Wands are also irreparable, as shown in 1992 when Ron's wand snapped after he and Harry crashed onto the Hogwarts grounds. Despite his use of Spellotape, Ron's wand malfunctioned throughout the entire novel. Another example is in 1997 when Hermione tried to fix Harry's broken wand, which was snapped by her errant Blasting Curse. However, Harry repaired his wand with the Elder Wand. Since the Elder Wand is the most powerful wand in the universe, it makes sense that it would produce the most powerful Repairing Charm.

DumbledorefanAdded by Dumbledorefan

Pronunciation: ric-tuhs-SEM-pra
Description: Causes an extreme tickling sensation that, in the case of Draco Malfoy, made him drop to the floor laughing.
Seen/Mentioned: By Harry Potter on Draco Malfoy in 1992, when they fought in the Duelling Club.
Etymology: Possibly the sum of two words; The Latin rictus, meaning "The expanse of an open mouth", and semper, meaning "Always". Rictus is generally used as an expression of terror, however, "always an open mouth" would, in most cases, correspond to the act of laughing uncontrollably.

Riddikulus (Boggart-Banishing Spell)Edit Riddikulus (Boggart-Banishing Spell) sectionEdit

You-Know-WhoAdded by You-Know-Who

Pronunciation: rih-dih-KYU-lus
Description: A spell used when fighting a Boggart, "Riddikulus" forces the Boggart to take the appearance of an object the caster is focusing on. Best results can be achieved if the caster is focusing on something humorous, with the desire that laughter will weaken the Boggart.
Seen/Mentioned: First seen in 1993, when taught by Remus Lupin.
Etymology: Latin word ridiculus, "laughable" (but perhaps "absurd" or "silly" in this context).
Notes: The effect of the spell seems to rely primarily on the state of mind of the caster. It doesn't actually change the shape of a boggart into something humorous, but rather whatever the caster is concentrating on at the moment of the casting, as when Neville was thinking of his grandmother's dress. Presumably, Mrs. Weasley couldn't take her mind off of her fears for her family, so the Boggart was changed into other members of the family rather than something humorous.
