Harry Potter and the Deathly Zombies: Spells to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse
With the bitter end of the beloved Harry Potter series merely days away, we take a moment to explore some untouched areas of our world of Witchcraft and Wizardry; like the possibility of a Zombie apocalypse. After the zombies take over don’t think Expelliarmus or a powerful Petronis will do you any good. This is a definitive list that everyone needs to study in order to survive. I’ll tell you one thing; you wont learn this in Defense Against the Dark Arts class!
When getting chased into a small room by a zombie you will need this door-locking spell. Although you wont be in the most convenient space at least your safe until the Zombie goes away or worse, finds it’s way in.
If you find you need to get from point A to point B and the usual swarm of zombies lies in your path just conjure up a disillusionment charm. The charm will render you invisible to other so you can pass safely.
The Episkey charm will heal your minor injuries. It is unlikely that the charm will be able to counteract a Zombie bite, but you can rest assured that the zombies wont smell the blood from your small wound.
Impedimenta (Impediment curse)
This curse will help slow the impeding Zombies by making them trip or stumble. Zombies are already quite clumsy so hopefully this charm will give you the time you need to get to safety.
Imperia (Imperius Curse) unforgivable
This curse will allow you to control the mind of the Zombie. Although it is unforgivable, if you get yourself into a life or death situation where you backed into a corner and about to be eaten alive by Zombies you may want to have this in your back pocket.
When a Zombie has it’s sights on you and you don’t have a chainsaw handy you can use the Oppungo spell to conjure an object to attack. Hermione used this to attack Ron with a small flock of canaries in The Half Blood Prince.
After the apocalypse it is important to find a safe place to hide. The Protego Totalum spell will protect your secret lair from Zombies by keeping out unwanted visitors. Just don’t venture outside it when you wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.
Just think, you left the safety of your keep for food. You enter the supermarket only to find a dozen zombies who are now on your tail. What spell are you going to rely on in this scenario? Reducto, of course. You can cast it on the canned peas to cause them to explode in the Zombies faces. After all, what kid doesn’t want to explode their vegetables?
Who could forget this violent spell in The Half Blood Prince? The end result is almost like a sword wound in the victim. Perfect for keeping zombies off your back; just don’t accidentally use it on a friend.
So you’ve wandered out of the secret hideout in the dead of night (just like we told you not to) and right next to the outhouse is a Zombie. You’re not afraid you have the Stupefy spell. Just cast this on your Zombie and he will freeze dead in his tracks long enough for you to do your business and make it back to bed. Just don’t forget your wand on the nightstand!
