Welcome, my fellow Muggles to the recent 20th anniversary JK Rowling’s masterpiece in the world of witchcraft and wizardry. Here am I waiting for a letter from Hogwarts for years and years but to no avail. Hopefully my article will reach to the Headmaster of Hogwarts and he will be intrigued by it and offers me a student placement. In celebration of the boy who lived, here are the Forgotten Spells Fans May Not Know In The Magical World of Harry Potter, aside from the common Expelliarmus, Stupefy and Avada Kedavra.
1. Aqua Eructo
Summons and creates waves of water right from the edge of the wand, transforming into various forms from fountains to powerful jets of water. It was seen during the battle between Dumbledore and You-Know-Who in the Order of the Phoenix.
2. Aresto Momentum
This could come in handy in our Muggle life as the spell slows down the velocity of a moving target indicates that a force of strength is supported against a moving object, preventing it from hitting hard on the ground or a particular surface. Dumbledore used the spell to save Harry after being interfered by Dementors during a Quidditch match.
3. Partis Temporus
Creates a barrier of magical protective gap to counter and evade any curses for a short period of time as used by Dumbledore to ward off the flames in order to escape in The Half Blood Prince.
Think of this perhaps as a firework spell. It ignites a spark or red flares into the air directly from the wand, as a sign of yielding from the maze in the Tri-Wizard tournament in The Goblet of Fire.
5. Piertotum Locomotor
“I have always wanted to use this spell” as McGonagall smirks in the Deathly Hallows Part 2 as it is used as an activation spell to summon the statues and knights of Hogwarts to fend off against the Death Eaters.
Conjures a terrifying image of the Dark Mark into the sky which serves as a sign of the Death Eaters as used by Barty Crouch Jr and the Death Eaters after the eventual death of Dumbledore.
7. Finite Incantatem
A basic spell that removes all buffs and spell effects off a specific item or objects of other doings that comes as a threat as Hermione casted it on the bludger that was chasing Harry during his Quidditch match.
8. Oculus Reparo
Repairs eyeglasses. One of the many first spells casted during their younger days. Hermione’s favourite spell on Harry.
Casted by Loony Lov… sorry Luna Lovegood to heal minor injuries especially broken bones.
A cast used to countering the Boggart in Professor Lupin’s lesson, turning fears into the most humorous and ridiculous possible way such as the turning of Snape to grandma’s outfit.
