Albus Potter: "Bombarda?"
Scorpius Malfoy: "And wake up everyone in Hogwarts?"
— Decision over how to destroy the Time Turner[src]

Bombarda is the incantation of a charm used to provoke small explosions; one use for this explosion is to blast open sealed doors or to blow bars off of windows. The incantation Bombarda Maxima is a stronger, more powerful variation of this spell.

Scorpius Malfoy noted that the explosions conjured up by Bombarda are rather noisy, and thus inconvenient for when trying to destroy something stealthily[1].

Behind the scenes



Based off of the English word "bombard" meaning: attack (a place or person) continuously with bombs, shells, or other missiles.
