"Underwater he casts a spell which propels him towards the surface, he flies out and lands on the decking where the crowd are."

Ascendio is the incantation of a charm which flings the caster high into the air.[1] The charm also works underwater, propelling the caster above the surface.[2]


Newt Scamander used this spell in September 1927 on a library record column in the library of the French Ministry of Magic in an attempt to help him, Porpentina Goldstein and Leta Lestrange escape from a pack of Matagots set upon them.

Behind the scenes


"Ascendio" comes from the Latin word "ascendo", meaning "to climb".
