"Flipendo Maxima is brilliant. It knocks targets further back and with more force than the original."
—Ben Copper regarding the spell's power[src]

Flipendo Maxima was a more powerful variation of the Knockback Jinx, which threw the target back further and with greater force that the original spell.[1]


It was invented by Badeea Ali in the 1989–1990 school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, after Ben Copper asked her to invent a more powerful variation of the Knockback Jinx. After the spell was finished, Badeea Ali taught Jacob's sibling and Merula Snyde how to cast it.[1]
