List Rules Upvote the coolest spells and charms from the Harry Potter universe that 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. Rowling made sure her beloved characters were well armed, no matter the situation. Whether Harry, Hermione, Ron, and the gang were preparing for a war with Voldemort or just getting the dishes done, there’s spell or charm for just about any task in this magical world.
Plus, there’s a rich Harry Potter spells list that has become a lexicon in every day life. Since there are so many Harry Potter charms and spells, we can’t help but wonder how they could be used in real life. Moving becomes more interesting, never be bothered during a movie again, or skip the gym. It would be also super awesome to turn water into rum without an explosion of course. 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, though.
