The Inflating Charm (Inflatus)[1] was a charm that inflated the target, filling it up with air until it floated above the ground.

History

Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger used this spell on various creatures around the grounds of Hogwarts Castle throughout the 1994-1995 school year, under the authorisation of their Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, Professor Bartemius Crouch Jr (who was disguised as Alastor Moody).[1]

Etymology

The prefix 'Inflate' derives from the English verb "to expand with oxygen".
