'''Protego Totalum''' is the incantation for the defensive [[spell]] used to protect a certain small or enclosed area from most other spells for extended periods. It forms an invisble protective "bubble" around the area it was cast in. This spell was used by [[Hermione Granger]] along with other [[charm]]s to prevent attacks from [[Death Eaters]] as she, [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] and [[Harry Potter|Harry]] traveled in search of [[Tom Riddle|Voldemort]]'s [[Horcrux]]es following his rise to power.
