"Fleur Delacour, though she demonstrated excellent use of the Bubble-Head Charm, was attacked by grindylows as she approached her goal, and failed to retrieve her hostage. We award her twenty-five points. ... Cedric Diggory, who also used the Bubble-Head Charm, was first to return with his hostage, though he returned one minute outside the time limit of an hour.... We therefore award him forty-seven points."
-- Ludo Bagman after the 2nd Task of the Tri-Wizard Tournament
The Bubble-Head Charm encloses the head of the caster with a bubble of breathable air.
