This conjuration spell (incantation unknown) conjures green, transparent Gytrashes through green bolts of light. Given that this spell conjures particularly powerful and malevolent spirits, with the intention of them attacking another individual, it very much appears to be a form of dark magic.[2]

Behind the scenes

In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (video game) nearing the end of the 1991-1992 school year, Quirinus Quirrell used this spell against Harry Potter, while on the Underground Chambers. Whilst playing this level in the game, after Harry (the player) has vanquished his first Gytrash with the Wand-Lighting Charm, Quirrell will temporarily remove the magical circular barrier protecting him around the Mirror of Erised to cast this spell to summon more beasts. Quirrell can then be disarmed with the Knockback Jinx to prevent him from summoning any more Gytrashes.

  1. While an audio file for the incantation does exist in the game, it sounds like a backwards audio clip, and would currently be difficult to decipher.
