One Spell per Character

Harry Potter characters is surely amazing and the spells really fits the characters. Harry, Hermione and Ron were the main characters in the epic series and as you can notice, everyone has their own personality and these personalities fits to what their spells was.

Harry Potter Expelliarmus

Harry Potter | Expelliarmus

Expelliarmus is obviously Harry’s spell. It has saved him many times, and he defended it harshly when Zacharias Smith mocked his affection for it. The spell symbolizes Harry’s disinclination to cause anyone pain. He would far prefer to disarm someone than to use a spell that could cause them serious damage, even when fighting against you-know-who during the battle at Hogwarts. The spell also reflects Harry’s past. When we first meet Harry, he is a poor boy (from a poor family!) who is teased and basically not really considered anything particularly impressive. But look at what he does! The disarming spell is the same: It is considered “nothing special” but is ultimately the spell that defeats Tom Riddle.

“Harry, the time for Disarming is past! These people are trying to capture and kill you! At least stun if you aren’t prepared to kill!” “We were hundreds of feet up! Stan’s not himself, and if I stunned him and he’d fallen, he’d have died the same as if I’d used Avada Kedavra! Expelliarmus saved me from Voldemort two years ago.”

Ron Weasley Cheering Charm

Ron’s the funny guy. In dark times, he can make the others laugh. Without him, the trio wouldn’t work. Harry himself says (when Ron and Hermione are fighting) that although he loves Hermione, hanging out just isn’t as fun without Ron. Ron is a great friend, and can always make his friends smile – and that’s why he’s the Cheering Charm.

“Well, we were always going to fail that one,” said Ron gloomily as they ascended the marble staircase. He had just made Harry feel rather better by telling him how he told the examiner in detail about the ugly man with a wart on his nose in the crystal ball, only to look up and realize he had been describing the examiner’s reflection.

Hermione Granger Episkey

Hermione looks after the boys. Harry may be The Chosen One, but let’s face it – he probably wouldn’t have survived without Hermione. Therefore, Hermione has a healing charm. This charm only heals minor wounds (such as a broken nose or cut lip), but we all know that if a small wound is left for a long time, it can become much worse. Likewise, without Hermione’s continual helping hand, Harry would probably be in St. Mungos or back at the Dursleys before you could say “Quidditch”.

“Undetectable Extension Charm,” said Hermione. “Tricky, but I think I’ve done it okay; anyway, I managed to fit everything we need in here. Oh, damn, that’ll be the books, and I had them all stacked by subject… Oh well… Harry, you’d better take the Invisibility Cloak. Ron, hurry up and change…” “When did you do all this?” Harry asked as Ron stripped off his robes. “I told you at the Burrow, I’ve had the essentials packed for days, you know, in case we needed to make a quick getaway. I packed your rucksack this morning, Harry, after you changed, and put it in here… I just had a feeling…”
