References from the canon

  • Hermione used this jinx to force Yaxley to let go of her during the escape from the Ministry of Magic. At the time there was a flash of purple light (DH13, DH14).
  • Probably the same spell Harry used underwater against the grindylows during the Second Task of the Triwizard Tournament, which instead of sparks created jets of boiling water (GF25).
