In Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, what spell did the MACUSA Aurors use to destroy the Obscurus?

  • Did they, now? – Adamant Jan 16 '17 at 21:31

It seems to be a wide array of offensive spells. No specific ones are mentioned in the screenplay.


Aurors continue to aim spells at the Obscurus, their efforts unrelenting and brutal.

Under this pressure, the Obscurus finally seems to implode – a white ball of magical light taking over from the black mass.

The force of the change sends TINA, NEWT and the Aurors stumbling backwards.

    Just generic movie spells. – ibid Jan 16 '17 at 19:54

    @ibid - Yup. One of the things I found frustrating about this film is that the spellcasting was so generic. Basically just pointing and shooting. – Valorum Jan 16 '17 at 19:56

    Isn't that all the HP films? – ibid Jan 16 '17 at 19:57
  • @ibid - This was the worst. – Valorum Jan 16 '17 at 20:03
  • And sometimes just hand motions without even pointing a wand. – Scimonster Jan 16 '17 at 21:44
