"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]


This jinx in action

It was invented by Badeea Ali, with the help of Ben Copper, in the 1989–1990 school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, after Ben had 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]
