The Banishing Charm sends an object away from the caster; the target object is said to have been Banished.
References from the canon
- Harry and his classmates practiced this spell in their fourth-year Charms class. Flitwick found himself being Banished around the room by Neville, whose aim wasn't very good (GF26).
- Can be a dangerous spell when heavy objects start flying away, so Flitwick had them practice on cushions.
- Seems to be a milder form of the Knockback Jinx and the Repelling Spell
