i dont know if this is worth mentioning but in the german version of the fourth book the stunning spell is described as "rote feuerstöße" meaning red bursts of flames —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the image seems to come from a video game. Shouldn't it be changed to an image from one of the films, as they are after all the higher source of canon? Merlin. 23:09, February 3, 2011 (UTC)


I was just reading the dictionary (I know, I'm weird like that), when I came across the ENGLISH word stupefy, which means stun or amaze. If you don't mind, I am going to feel free to change the etymology to this, unless, of course, there is sufficient evidence supporting that I am wrong.Luna Malfoy 22:19, January 14, 2012 (UTC)Luna Malfoy

Picture of Harry

This cracks me up ---I stared at this picture for a long time

With the chair back in front of Harry, it looks exactly as though hehas on a woman's suit

The light

Someone posted that the light colour is red, but in the movies the colour is white. And nowhere in the books is stated that stupify is red.. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Actually, it states clearly in at least one instance in Deathly Hallows that it is red-- "Wriggling around he cried, 'Stupefy!' and a red bolt of light shot from his own wand..." And I'm sure there are other instances. ProfessorTofty (talk) 18:47, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

Cho Chang

“You’re a r-really good teacher, you know,” said Cho, with a watery smile. “I’ve never been able to Stun anything before.”
-- HPOP, chapter “The Eye of the Snake”

Certainly, probably all DA students were able to do the Stunning Spell, but this one was specifically mentioned. Shouldn’t it be added to the list as well? (And of course, my first reaction to this dialog was to add Harry”s reply, “Sure, you have been.”, but that’s besides the point).
