'''''Expulso''''' is a [[spell]] that causes an object to explode. The force of the explosion may depend on the intent of the caster.

'''''Expulso''''' is a [[spell]] which blows things up; it is a rather forceful spell.
==Uses==
+
==Practicioners==
[[Antonin Dolohov]] used this spell in a [[Luchino Caffe|café]] on [[Tottenham Court Road]] during a [[Skirmish at Luchino Caffe|skirmish]] with [[Harry Potter]], [[Hermione Granger]] and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] in August of [[1997]]. Dolohov cast ''Expulso'' in the direction of an [[Invisibility Cloak (Deathly Hallow)|invisible]] Harry; it struck the table Harry was standing behind, causing an explosion that slammed him into a wall with great force.<ref>''[[Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows]]''</ref> During the hunt for the Horcruxes, [[Harry Potter]] used this spell to try and destroy the locket of Salazar Slytherin, although it was ineffective.<ref>''[[Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1]]''</ref>
 
 
==Possible uses==
 
This may have been the spell that caused the explosion which killed [[Fred Weasley]] during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]], if the explosion manifested itself as a blast, rather than a fireball (''Expulso'' appears to use pressure as the source of the explosion, as opposed to [[Blasting Curse|''Confringo'']], which presumably uses heat as the source).

*In the video game adaptations of ''[[Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (video game)|Deathly Hallows: Part 1]]'' and ''[[Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (video game)|Part 2]]'', the effects of this spell are expanded on. If one quickly casts an uncharged ''Expulso'' it works as it does in other media, firing an explosive energy blast. However, if one charges the spell up before casting it works much like an automatic rifle, firing off many energy blasts in devastatingly rapid succession, although this will decrease the spell's accuracy.
