How can Luna performing the spell be cannon? She probably learned the spell in the DA in the film, but cannonically, Harry couldn´t have taught it to any DA member then.--Rodolphus 16:30, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

- Well, it's a stretch, but Lupin did say the spell was pretty popular at Hogwarts in previous years. She may have picked it up elsewhere, possibly from her parents. It's not too far off to imagine the Lovegoods hoisting each other into the air just for the fun of it. - Nick O'Demus 11:23, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
- The whole thing does seem kind of off though... I mean, not only does she say the incantation out loud, it blasts the Death Eater away instead of just lifting him up by the ankle. That, compounded with the fact that it's not even in the books, kind of makes it seem... wrong. --Emmy (★) 23:02, October 22, 2010 (UTC)
- Well, according to the respective articles, the book in which Levicorpus is first mentioned (HBP) came out in 2005, whereas the film in which this "error" is mentioned (OOTP) came out two years later, in 2009. That's two years for someone to read the book and say "Let's include that, it would be cool". --Remember (Least We Forget) 03:48, November 11, 2012 (UTC)

The infobox says it was invented in 1977/1978; however, the BTS section says that it was known by at least James Potter I in 1975/1976. Should we thus change the infobox to 1975/1976? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 19:33, June 6, 2013 (UTC)
