"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."
—Description[src]

Hex-deflection is the practice of deflecting hexes, such as the Twitchy Ears Hex. One spell used for hex-deflection is Salvio hexia.[1] Hex-deflection is part of the fourth year Defence Against the Dark Arts curriculum at Hogwarts.[2]

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 Moody taught during the hex-deflection lesson.
