The Backfiring Jinx (incantation unknown) was a jinx that backfired spells onto their casters.[1]

History

In July 1996, the Office for the Detection and Confiscation of Counterfeit Defensive Spells and Protective Objects got wind of a "nasty" example of this jinx in Elephant and Castle, but it was sorted out by the Magical Law Enforcement Patrol before they arrived on the scene.[1]
