HarryCrucio

Voldemort using the Cruciatus Curse on Harry Potter.

AvadaKedavra

Lord Voldemort casting the Killing Curse.

A Curse is one of the seven known spell types and the worst kind of Dark Magic[1]. Curses are used with the intention of causing harm, control, or even death to the victim. Like hexes, Hogwarts students don't learn them in school. However, students studying Defence Against the Dark Arts learn how to deal with them using defensive magic.

Most curses can be blocked by a Counter-curse.
