"Instant scalping… but dragons had no hair… pepper breath… that would probably increase a dragon's firepower… horn tongue… just what he needed, to give it an extra weapon…"
—Harry Potter scans Basic Hexes for the Busy and Vexed for defence against a dragon[src]

The Pepper breath hex (incantation unknown) is a hex that gives the target fiery hot breath.[1]


Harry Potter saw this hex in Basic Hexes for the Busy and Vexed while researching spells to use during the Triwizard Tournament and decided not to use it against the dragon he would face in the First Task.[1]
