The '''Muggle-Repelling Charm''' is a [[charm]] that causes an area to be unseen by [[Muggle]]s, or causes it to be undesirable for Muggles to search or enter. Its incantation is ''Repello Muggletum''.

Some of the effects of the [[spell]] are that [[Muggle]]s will suddenly realise a reason as not to enter the area over this charm's protection, for example, by "remembering" that they had an urgent appointment somewhere else.

==Possible uses==
 
It was cast on the stadium of the [[Quidditch World Cup]] and may also be one of the protective spells placed on [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]], since it is known that if a Muggle looks at Hogwarts the only thing they see is a decrepit ruin with a sign saying "Keep out". It is also likely that it has been cast over [[St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries]].

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Tom Riddle tells Hagrid that Myrtle's parents will be arriving at Hogwarts to collect their daughter's body; as they are Muggles, this should not be possible. However, the charm may have been lifted for the event, or Tom may have been lying.
  • Sirius says his father Orion Black put every protection known to wizardkind on 12 Grimmauld Place, and since Muggles cannot approach or enter it, it is possible this was among those spells.
  • Muggles can see neither the Leaky Cauldron nor St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries; this may therefore be placed on both locations.
