This curse (incantation unknown) was used by Order of the Phoenix member Molly Weasley in the Skirmish at the Great Hall which was part of the Battle of Hogwarts. The exact effects of this spell are unknown, but when used with enough force, it is capable of killing the target.[1]


"Bellatrix's gloating smile froze, her eyes seemed to bulge: for the tiniest of time she knew what had happened, and then she toppled, ......"
—The effects of the curse on Bellatrix Lestrange
This curse appears to kill its victims, as Molly did to Bellatrix Lestrange. However, it might just make the victim fall to the ground like Bellatrix Lestrange's curse, as it said Bellatrix toppled to the ground. Bellatrix's frozen smile and bulging eyes may have just been her own erratic facial expressions, rather than be effects of the spell.[1] 

Known uses

"Molly's curse soared beneath Bellatrix's outstretched arm and hit her squarely in the chest, directly over her heart"
—Molly using the curse on Bellatrix
Molly used this curse during the Skirmish at the Great Hall on Bellatrix in a duel, which killed her.[1]
