Behind the scenes
- In the GBC version of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Lockhart uses this spell, instead of Brackium Emendo, to "fix" Harry Potter's broken arm bones. This seems a hint to his ineptitude as a wizard, as the spell's etymology seems to clearly identify its effects
- The incantation is only uttered by Lockhart in the French and Portuguese translations of the game; in English, Lockhart says "This should fix it".
