"Good morning class. Today's lesson will most assuredly involve learning how to cast the Softening Charm, Spongify."
Filius Flitwick addresses his class.[src]

The Softening Charm (Spongify) is a spell that softens a target area or object, making it rubbery and bouncy.[1][2]

The Softening Charm is part of the first-year Charms syllabus at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,[1] and is later revised in second-year Defence Against the Dark Arts.[2]

Behind the scenes

Picture 11

Harry Potter is propelled into the air after casting this spell on a mat.

  • In the Harry Potter video games in which it features, to use this spell, a Spongify mat is needed, which is an area that has a swirly symbol on it. Performing the spell on the mat will cause a purple mist to cover the mat, which, when jumped on, will bounce the player high into the air and onto higher ledges or other otherwise inaccessible areas.
  • A spellbook for this spell could be found somewhere within Hogwarts and was located by Harry Potter.
