- "Moody had given them such a rigorous test of hex-deflection that many of them were nursing small injuries. Harry had such a bad case of Twitchy Ears, he had to hold his hands clamped over them as he walked away from the class."
- —Bartemius Crouch Junior (disguised as Alastor Moody) teaching Hex-deflection[src]
Hex-deflection was the practise of deflecting hexes, such as the Twitchy Ears Hex. One spell used for hex-deflection is Salvio hexia. Hex-deflection was part of the fourth year Defence Against the Dark Arts curriculum at Hogwarts.
Behind the scenes
- It remains uncertain if Salvio hexia is the incantation for a spell called Hex-deflection, or if it is merely one spell that falls under this branch.
- It is unknown if "Salvio hexia" was the spell that Barty Crouch Junior taught during the hex-deflection lesson.
