Protects against the darkest magic

"...although he could barely see out of it, he pointed his wand through the smashed window and started muttering incantations of great complexity. Harry heard a weird rushing noise, as though Flitwick had unleashed the power of the wind into the grounds."
—Flitwick casts enchantments such as this one over the school.[src]

Protego Horribilis is a stronger version of the Shield Charm which protects a very large area against highly Dark Magic. It causes anything within the ranges of Dark Magic to rebound off the shield.
