Harry Potter discovered the limitations of Rennervate when he attempted to revive Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry Headmaster Albus Dumbledore while retrieving one of Lord Voldemort's Horcruxes. In this case, water was the only substance that could revive Dumbledore.

In 1995, Amos Diggory used it to wake up Winky and Albus Dumbledore used it to wake up Viktor Krum and Barty Crouch Jr..
