It is used as a potion ingredient. This was an ingredient in a potion Harry Potter researched for the second task of the Triwizard Tournament. The eye and spleen of this creature is also commonly used as a potion ingredient, the former also being a phrase used by the Frog Choir in the song Something Wicked This Way Comes.

Double-ended Newts is a breed of newts with two heads that can be kept as a pet, which a wizard was instructed into by the saleswoman in the Magical Menagerie in 1993. Ginger Newts is a kind of biscuit sweet in the wizarding world, which Minerva McGonagall, Transfiguration Professor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, owned a jar of.

The Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Test was often abbreviated as "N.E.W.T.," likely a reference to this creature in much the same manner as the Ordinary Wizarding Level exams were abbreviated "O.W.L." (owl).
