Behind the scenes
- In Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, this is an award-only spell that can be used in duelling using Sneaky stance. It deals moderate damage and can stun opponents in a defensive stance for one turn. The spell is awarded by defeating twenty duellists in two days when the Duelling Club is first discovered after duelling and defeating Merula Snyde.
- In the Spanish edition of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, the Leek Jinx is called "Embrujo Puerro", which translates in English as "Leek spell".
- This spell's type or name was never stated in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, but it was merely assumed by editors of the Harry Potter Wiki due to its effects and nature.
