- "Underwater he casts a spell which propels him towards the surface, he flies out and lands on the decking where the crowd are."
Ascendio is a charm used to lift the caster high into the air or propel them to the surface should they be underwater at the time.
Behind the scenes
- Harry Potter only uses this spell in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire; in the book he manages to swim to the surface without using a spell, though just barely.
"Ascendio" comes from the Latin word "ascendo", meaning "to climb".
