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

The Exploding Charm[1] (Bombarda) is 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.

History

During the 1987–1988 school year, this spell was taught to fourth years in Charms class.[1]

Scorpius Malfoy noted that the explosions conjured up by Bombarda are rather noisy, and thus inconvenient for when trying to destroy something stealthily[2].

Etymology

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