"Protego Maxima. Fianto Duri. Repello Inimicum."
Filius Flitwick conjures up magical defences prior to the Battle of Hogwarts.[src]

Repello Inimicum is a charm that, when cast in combination with Protego Maxima and Fianto Duri, conjures up an almost impregnable magical protection barrier. Bodies crossing the boundaries of the barrier disintegrate on the spot, while spells cast at it (if not of enough power to break it) create large, resonating explosions. This spell's effect is most likely seen when the charging snatchers run at the shield, and disintegrate instantly.

Known uses

DesintegrateSnatcher

Snatchers being disintegrated by the power of this spell combined with other protections.

This spell was cast by Charms Master Filius Flitwick to protect the boundaries of Hogwarts Castle from the Death Eater forces in the late hours of 1 May, 1998, prior to the Battle of Hogwarts that started at midnight the next day. The Death Eaters, on Voldemort's command, started bombarding the magical protection with spells, and they were ultimately brought down by a spell cast by Voldemort.

Etymology

  • The incantation is derived from the Latin "Repello", meaning "I drive away" and "inimicum", the accusative singular form of "inimīcus" meaning "foe" or "enemy". Altogether the incantation means "I push back the enemy".
