"He raised his own wand, pointed it at Winky, and said, “Rennervate!” Winky stirred feebly."
Amos Diggory uses the spell on Winky.[src]

The Reviving Spell[4] (Rennervate[1]) is a charm that awakens whomever the caster's wand is pointed at[3]. It is accompanied by a flash of brilliantly coloured red light[1].

This can be used to counteract a single Stunning Spell, although it is ineffective against multiple Stunners hitting an individual[5]. It also is ineffective against Dark Magic such as the Drink of Despair[1].



The original incantation was Ennervate, which means "to weaken".[7] Due to this misconception, J.K. Rowling officially renamed it to "Rennervate",[7] which means "to energise".
