Top 10 Coolest Harry Potter Spells
If there’s one thing that us muggles envy from the Harry Potter universe, it has to be the sheer number of spells that wizards are capable of casting.
Some of these techniques are incredibly useless, while others are capable of getting you out of the trickiest of situations. These spells have become even more popular thanks to the movies.
In today’s Top 10, we’ll be taking a look at the most popular spells ever cast in the Harry Potter universe!
This spell is often seen as Harry’s main move, the equivalent of Pikachu’s Thunder-shock in Pokémon. The technique forces the subject to be disposed of whatever it is that he or she is holding. Harry uses this spell a lot, mainly in duels, in order to disarm his opponents as one cast of Expelliarmus is enough to make them drop their wands.
Also known as the “Unlocking Charm”, Alohomora is a spell capable of opening basically any lock. It is often used by wizard thieves, but the spell itself has plenty of uses. The spell was so widely feared that it forced the invention of the anti-Alohomora spell, in order to prevent thieves from breaking into houses with ease.
This infamous spell is capable of erasing memories from anyone’s brain. It’s a very powerful spell and very dangerous thanks to its nature. Wizards often use this spell in order to make muggles forget about any magical events that they might have seen. If a Muggle sees a dragon or a mythical creature, wizards are advised to erase these memories from their minds.
The Avada Kedavra spell is actually one of the deadliest spells in existence. In fact, its deadliness makes it one of Voldemort’s favorites. The spell doesn’t even damage the body of whoever takes it, but it instantly ends the person’s life. It’s basically a switch that can only be turned off – one of the scariest spells in the Harry Potter universe.
The levitation spell was probably one of the first mainstream spells in the Harry Potter universe. It’s usually taught to wizards during their first year of school, hence it was shown in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. If cast upon an object, said object will start to levitate. It’s a simple yet very effective spell!
The Patronus charm is capable of summoning a wizard’s inner “patronum” in order to protect them from danger. Each wizard is capable of summoning its patronus, which usually takes the shape of an animal. In some cases, the patronus might lack a shape, which simply makes it less effective than those who turn into an animal.
Also known as the Blasting Curse, Confringo is a powerful spell capable of setting on fire anything in its path. Young wizards are advised to use the spell responsibly – its nature makes it a very lethal weapon which could prove to be deadly if the caster doesn’t take care of its surroundings.
This is actually one of the most powerful healing spells in the HP Universe. It’s capable of healing any open wounds and stopping deadly bleeding in an instant. It has three phases: the first one is all about stopping blood flow through the wound, the second one starts cleaning it, and the third one fully knits the wound. It has to be repeated three times for full effect!
This spell has a couple of very effective uses. On one hand, it’s capable of stopping any moving object that gets caught in its path. On the other hand, it could be aimed at another wizard in order to stun him or even make them unconscious. Duelers tend to see it as a very useful spell to use during battles.
The summoning charm was first invented many centuries ago. In fact, it’s considered to be one of the first spells that wizards learned. It requires a lot of focus and concentration. Once cast, a wizard can summon a distant object to make it come close to them. The object stays levitating in front of the wizard until they choose to grab it.
