The Repelling Spell (incantation unknown) is a charm that repels small objects from escaping.


It was often used during "Cuaditch" (13th century-Quidditch) matches by members of the crowd to stop Golden Snidgets from escaping past the borders of the Quidditch pitch.[2]

This is also among the only methods of preventing owls from reaching a witch or wizard, along with Disguising Spells and Masking Spells.[3]


Notes and references

  1. Given that the incantation for the Muggle-Repelling Charm is Repello Muggletum and the incantation Repello Inimicum repels enemies, it would make a lot of sense for the incantation of spell to be similar to Repello
