[edit] Description

This charm disables the castor's opponent, which has been portrayed as something as simple as knocking a wand out of someone's hand in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets to something as unique as the phoenix cage in at the end of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. If several people cast the charm at the same time, directed at the same person, it can blast that person off their feet as in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. It is also known as the Disarming Charm. [1] This spell has a red color, and is frequently portrayed in the books as colliding with the green jets of Avada Kedavra. This spell has the ability to collide with other spells, therefore making both spells useless. This spell has a reputation of being a soft, peaceful dueling spell, made clear by Remus Lupin in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and the reaction of Zacharias Smith in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It has been used by Harry more than once to save his life from Voldemort, when he first met him in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He used it again in the final battle between himself and Voldemort, using Draco Malfoy's wand.
