Is this really a spell? I'm pretty sure Cho just said Expelliarmus wrong, and caused a random destructive effect, as often happens when spells are mispronounced. Never forget Wizard Buruffio, who said "s" instead of "f" and found himself on the floor with a buffalo on his chest. Jayden Matthews 14:20, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
- We have articles on other nonsense incantations like "Peskipiksi Pesternomi" and "Jiggery Pokery." I think we just have to edit this article to make it clear that this was simply a mispronunciation of Expelliarmus and not an actual spell. ★ Starstuff (Owl me!) 21:23, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
This spell is not real...

- I see what you mean in saying that this may be a real spell; however, I always thought that, as it was only ever used when they were practicing the Disarming Charm I assumed it was merely Cho saying Expelliarmus incorrectly. Also, if it was a mispronunciation of Expelliarmus, do you think I ought to copy the hand motion for the Disarming Charm onto here? Hunnie Bunn (talk) 17:01, July 14, 2012 (UTC)
- As I stated before, I thought this was merely a mispronunciation of Expelliarmus; firstly, they were practicing the said spell when she cast this one; secondly, as noted on the page the etymology and effects don't match up; thirdly, Cho says, and I quote: "You made me nervous, I was doing all right before then!" (the text wasn't underlined in the quote, I did so to emphasise the part of the text I wanted to highlight. Hunnie Bunn (talk) 22:54, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

I'm bringing this up in a new thread because it's somewhat different - whereas before we were talking about whether it's a spell, now I'm wondering whether it should have its own article.
- They were practising Expelliarmus when this effect of burning Marietta's coat sleeve, and Cho even said she was "doing it fine before".
- When Ron's wand malfunctioned, all of the spells he tried ended up going disastrously wrong, and didn't he set something on fire once?
- It is also said "Expelliarmious", why does that not have its own article if this does? The "Expelliarmious" part might have contributed to the burning.
- All we've seen of the spell was this one accidental use - is it really notable?
