This curse (incantation unknown) was used by Order of the Phoenix member Molly Weasley in the Skirmish at the Great Hall which was part of the Battle of Hogwarts. It is supposed to be Dark Magic due to its effects.


"Bellatrix's gloating smile froze, her eyes seemed to bulge: for the tiniest of time she knew what had happened, and then she toppled, ......"
—The effects of the curse on Bellatrix Lestrange

This curse probably just kills the victims, as Molly did to Bellatrix. However, it might just make the victim fall like Bellatrix Lestrange's curse, as it said Bellatrix toppled to the ground. The smile froze and the eyes seem to bulge are probably just Bellatrix herself instead of the curse's effects.

Known uses

"Molly's curse soared beneath Bellatrix's outstretched arm and hit her squarely in the chest, directly over her heart"
—Molly using the curse on Bellatrix

Molly used this curse during the Skirmish at the Great Hall on Bellatrix in a duel.
