"When I know Lumos, I can chase away the bogeyman at night, or at least make him squint painfully."
—Hufflepuff student.[src]

The bogeyman is a creature that preys on young children. Bogeymen are vulnerable to light, so a simple Wand-Lighting Charm is enough to make them "squint painfully".[1]

It's possible these creatures are imaginary or related to Boggarts in some way.
