A '''spell''' is a magical action often accompanied by an incantation (usually - but not always - Latin based; for example,'' [[Obliviate]]'' or'' [[Point Me]]'') that makes use of the magical force of the [[Harry Potter universe|wizarding universe]] in order to accomplish extraordinary feats [[Muggle|ordinary people]] cannot perform; for example, [[Hover Charm|levitating objects]], [[Incendio|conjuring fire]], or [[Stunning Spell|stunning a person]]. Spells often have some kind of physical representation in the form of light, and as such can usually miss, be dodged or be blocked with an object (including another spell).

Current revision as of 02:59, 21 November 2011

This should be an article about Spells in general. For a list with links to articles about specific Spells, see Category:Spells.

A spell is a magical action often accompanied by an incantation (usually - but not always - Latin based; for example, Obliviate or Point Me) that makes use of the magical force of the wizarding universe in order to accomplish extraordinary feats ordinary people cannot perform; for example, levitating objects, conjuring fire, or stunning a person. Spells often have some kind of physical representation in the form of light, and as such can usually miss, be dodged or be blocked with an object (including another spell).
