The Best Harry Potter Spells

List Rules
Vote up the coolest spells and charms from the Harry Potter universe you wish you could use in real life.

Harry Potter spells are the best spells. The Bat-Bogey Hex, “Reducto,” and the good old “Oculus Reparo” all came out of the Harry Potter universe and the amazing mind of author J.K. Rowling, who made sure her beloved characters were well armed, no matter the situation. Whether Harry, Hermione, Ron, and the rest were preparing to fight Voldemort or just doing the dishes, they could use a spell or charm for just about any task in the magical world.  

Plus, there’s a rich Harry Potter spells list that has become a lexicon in everyday life. because there are so many Harry Potter charms and spells, we can’t help but wonder how they would be used in Muggle life. Moving around would become more interesting; you'd never be bothered during a movie again; or you could turn water into rum. Or how about throwing a protection shield around your house to keep burglars away? 

There’s a Harry Potter spell for just about every occasion, especially when the occasion calls for sardines to shoot out of a victim’s nose. And who couldn’t use a shot of Felix Felicis or Liquid Luck every now and again? Probably best to steer clear of Avada Kedavra and other Dark Arts curses and spells though.
