The '''Reviving Spell'''<ref name="Sch">[http://harrypotter.scholastic.com/glossary/ Scholastic - Harry Potter Glossary]</ref> (''Rennervate'') is the [[counter-spell]] to the [[Stunning Spell]]. It is used to bring Stunned individuals back to consciousness. It will not work against certain kinds of [[Dark Arts|Dark magic]], for instance, the effects of the [[Drink of Despair]]. ''Rennervate'' is also useless for resurrecting the deceased.
 
   
[[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 [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]]'s [[Horcrux]]es. In this case, water was the only substance that could revive Dumbledore.
