|Fifth years||1995||Fifth-years work on this spell in Charms using bullfrogs and ravens.|
|Hermione Granger||18 June, 1996||Hermione cast this spell on a Death Eater during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, which caused the spell he used to attack her to be a lot less damaging. He still knocked her out, though, and did "enough damage to be going on with," according to Pomfrey.|
|Lord Voldemort||2 May, 1998||He used this spell on the defenders of Hogwarts during the final battle.|
