Effect

Provokes damage on the opponent.

The red Special Jinx is one of the four Special Jinxes, alongside the yellow, the blue and the green Special Jinxes.

This jinx emmits three separate blasts of red light from the tip of the caster's wand. While this may not be the most powerful of the Special Jinxes, it seems to be one of the hardest to dodge — it is, for this reason, used in dueling.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The Special Jinxes seem each to represent one of the Hogwarts Houses through their colour and effect. This jinx seems to match Gryffindor, not only because of its red colour, but also for being quite offensive and bold (bravery and talent being distinctive traits of students from that House).
