Warns owner of enemies' presence


Barty Crouch Jr.

"That's a Foe-Glass. Lets me keep an eye on my enemies. If I can see the whites of their eyes, they're standing right behind me."
Bartemius Crouch Jr., impersonating Alastor Moody[src]

A Foe-Glass is a type of Dark Detector. It looks like a mirror, but instead of a reflection it shows the enemies of its possessor. The figures appear as "shadows" but become clearer and more visible as the enemies get closer to the possessor.



Moody Foe-Glass 2

The fake Moody and the shadows of his enemies in his Foe-Glass

Barty Crouch Jr., while impersonating Alastor Moody, had Moody's Foe-Glass in his office during Harry Potter's fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He said he's not really "in trouble" until he can see "the whites of their eyes."[1] Later in the school year, after Cedric Diggory's tragic death, it was revealed that Crouch's enemies shown in the glass were Albus Dumbledore, Minerva McGonagall, and Severus Snape, all notable members of the Order of the Phoenix.


When Harry and the other members of Dumbledore's Army first entered the Room of Requirement, he found, among other Dark Detectors, the fake Moody's Foe-Glass. By this time it was cracked, but still functional.
