"Expelliarmus is a useful spell, Harry, but the Death Eaters believe it's your signature move and I urge you not to let it become so!"
Remus Lupin to Harry Potter after the Battle of the Seven Potters[src]

A signature spell (or signature move) is the spell most commonly cast by a witch or wizard, especially when used in the context of duelling. Even though the spell may be the one the caster is best at, its predictability can make its user vulnerable.

According to Remus Lupin in 1997, Lord Voldemort's Death Eaters thought Harry Potter's signature spell was the Disarming Charm, and he urged Harry not to allow that to be the case.

The Killing Curse was thought by most of the wizarding world to be Voldemort's signature spell, and Sectumsempra was seen by those who knew of it to be the signature move of its inventor, Severus Snape.
