10 Spells Technically Dumbledore Knows (But Never Uses)

Given that the mere mention of Albus Dumbledore’s name can incite Lord Voldemort’s fury and dread, it’s safe to believe that he’s the most powerful wizard in Harry Potter. As a result, the Dumbledore is likely to be familiar with nearly all, if not all, of the franchise’s spells.

For Dumbledore’s subtle style, Expulso is too fiery and boisterous.


In melee encounters where the user’s purpose is to flee, Expulso’s explosions are pretty helpful. The spell conjures up a bomb-like rush of energy that can demolish most household items and injure anyone caught in its blast radius.

His humorous value overshadows Engorgio’s combat ability.


Miranda Goshawk cautions her readers against “over-enthusiastic casting,” underlining the significance of simultaneously mastering Engorgio and Reducio.

Dumbledore’s Magic Is Far Better Than Relashio’s Simple & Violent Magic


The Revulsion Jinx, also known as Relashio, makes a victim “give up its grip on another object.” Harry Potter’s sole spell that can be used both on land and underwater is this one.

Obliviate takes away a person’s ability to think and express themselves freely.


Obliviate is a spell that obliterates a person’s memory with fantastic precision, and the caster has complete control over its effectiveness. The Memory Charm is useful when Muggles or No-majes come into contact with magic. The International Statute of the Secrecy requires that the Wizarding World remain invisible and intangible to meddling.

Fiendfyre’s malevolence outweighs its theoretical advantages.


Vincent Crabbe is the final person that can create Fiendfyre. A dark conflagration emerges when the spell is cast.

Conferring Is Inconvenient & Excessively Destructive


Conferring is similar to Expulso and Reducto but significantly more harmful. Hermione conducts the spell in Bathilda Bagshot’s room, which “bounces from floor to ceiling,” shattering Harry’s treasured wand.

Most Adults Wouldn’t Consider Casting Densaugeo Because It’s Too Silly.


Draco throws a minor hex on Harry, but it misses its target and falls on Hermione instead. As a result, her “already larger than average” front teeth protrude downwards like mutant beaver teeth.

Murder is required of the Caster of the Horcrux-Making Spell.


Horcrux magic would be a risky and challenging task for anybody, even if the spell didn’t work because of the soul-fragmentation process.

Although Silencio is technically beneficial, Dumbledore likes the bustle of Hogwarts.


One may expect Dumbledore to utilize the Silencing Charm during his tenure as Headmaster, Perhaps to lower the Great Hall’s decibel level.

The Unforgivable Curses take away their victims’ agency, something Dumbledore will not tolerate.


The prospect of using the Unforgivable Curses is unbearable to Dumbledore. Partly due to the unintentional death of his sister Ariana. But mostly because he’d never willingly taken away a human’s autonomy.
