"Counter-Jinx is a name wizards give their spells to make them sound more friendly."
Wilbert Slinkhard on counter-jinxes[src]

A Counter-Jinx is a type of counter-spell that ends the effect of a jinx. It differs from an anti-jinx in that an anti-jinx is intended to prevent those effects rather than remove them.

Wilbert Slinkhard said that the term "counter-jinx" was a misnomer, implying that they were intended with just as much harm as the spells they countered, though Hermione Granger disagreed with this assessment.

Practical Defensive Magic and Its Use Against the Dark Arts contains moving colour illustrations of the various counter-jinxes and hexes that it illustrates.
