Harry in Robe with Wand Front View (Painting) - Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
You are protected, in short, by your ability to love! The only protection that can possibly work against the lure of power like Voldemort's! In spite of all the temptation you have endured, all the suffering, you remain pure of heart, just as pure as you were at the age of eleven, when you stared into a mirror that reflected your heart's desire, and it showed you only the way to thwart Lord Voldemort, and not immortality or riches. Harry, have you any idea how few wizards could have seen what you saw in that mirror?
~ Albus Dumbledore describing Harry's nature.

Summary

Harry James Potter is the title character of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.

Thus, he attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to practice magic under the guidance of the kindly headmaster Albus Dumbledore and other school professors.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

List of Spells used by Harry:

  • Accio: This charm summons an object to the caster, potentially over a significant distance. It can be used in two ways; either by casting the charm and then naming the object desired, or by pointing your wand at the desired object during or immediately following the incantation to "pull" the target toward the caster; in either case, the caster must concentrate on the object they wish to summon in order for the charm to succeed. The caster doesn't necessarily need to know the location of the target if they say the name of the object to be summoned.
  • Aguamenti (Water-Making Spell): Produces a fountain or jet of water from the wand tip.
  • Arania Exumai: This spell is used to blast away Acromantulas and, presumably, all other arachnids.
  • Ascendio: Lifts the caster high into the air.
  • Confringo: Causes anything that the spell comes into contact with to explode, and presumably thereafter burst into flame.
  • Crucio (Cruciatus Curse): Inflicts intense pain on the recipient of the curse; the pain is described as having hot knives being driven into the victim. It cannot be cast successfully by a person who is doing so out of pure spite or anger; one must feel a true desire to cause the victim pain. 
  • Defodio: This spell allows the caster to gouge large chunks out of the target.
  • Depulso (Banishing Charm): This spell is used to make the target fly toward a specific location; it is the opposite of the summoning charm.
  • Diffindo (Severing Charm): Rips, tears, shreds, or otherwise physically damages the target.
  • Entomorphis: This hex is used to transform the target into an insectoid for a short time; it can be bought at Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment in Diagon Alley.
  • Episkey: Used to heal relatively minor injuries, such as broken bones and cartilage.
  • Erecto: Used to erect a tent or other structure.
  • Expecto Patronum (Patronus Charm):

    Harry summoning Patronus

    This charm is a defensive spell which will conjure a spirit-like incarnation of their positive emotions to defend against dark creatures; it can also send messages to other witches or wizards. It seems one's Patronus will take the form of something important to the caster, and can change when one has undergone a period of heightened emotion.
  • Expelliarmus (Disarming Charm): Causes whatever the victim is holding to fly away, knocks out an opponent if used too forcefully. 
  • Feather-light charm: Makes something lightweight.
  • Furnunculus (Pimple Jinx): Covers the target in boils (or pimples).
  • Imperio (Imperius Curse): Places the subject in a dream-like state, in which he or she is utterly subject to the will of the caster. However, those who are strong willed may learn to resist it. 
  • Inflatus (Inflatus Jinx): Inflates objects (living or dead).
  • Langlock: Glues the subject's tongue to the roof of their mouth.
  • Levicorpus: The victim is dangled upside-down by their ankles, sometimes accompanied by a flash of light (this may be a variant of the spell).
  • Liberacorpus: Counteracts Levicorpus.
  • Locomotor Mortis (Leg-Locker Curse): Locks the legs together, preventing the victim from moving the legs in any fashion.
  • Lumos (Wand-Lighting Charm): Creates a narrow beam of light that shines from the wand's tip, like a torch.
  • Lumos Maxima: Shoots a ball of light at the place pointed, if the Wand is swung.
  • Muffliato (Muffliato): This spell fills peoples' ears with an unidentifiable buzzing to keep them from hearing nearby conversations.
  • Nox (Wand-Extinguishing Charm): Turns off the light produced by Lumos.
  • Periculum: Creates red sparks/flares to shoot from the user's wand.
  • Point Me (Four-Point Spell): Causes the caster's wand to act as a compass, and point North.
  • Protego (Shield Charm):

    The Shield Charm causes minor to moderate jinxes, curses, and hexes to rebound upon the attacker.
  • Protego Totalum: Casts a shield charm over a small area that will not let anything pass through, except for the Unforgivable Curses: Avada Kedavra, Imperio and Crucio.
  • Reducio (Shrinking Charm): Makes an enlarged object smaller.
  • Reducto (Reductor Curse): Breaks objects. In stronger usages, disintegrates them.
  • (Refilling Charm): Refills whatever the caster points at with the drink originally in the container.
  • Relashio (Revulsion Jinx): A spell used to make the subject release whatever it is holding or binding.
  • Rennervate: revives a stunned person.
  • Reparo (Mending Charm): Used to repair objects.
  • Repello Muggletum (Muggle-Repelling Charm): Keeps Muggles away from wizarding places by causing them to remember important meetings they missed and to cause the Muggles in question to forget what they were doing.
  • Rictusempra (Tickling Charm): Causes an extreme tickling sensation that, in the case of Draco Malfoy, made him drop to the floor laughing.
  • Riddikulus: A spell used when fighting a Boggart, "Riddikulus" forces the Boggart to take the appearance of an object the caster is focusing on. Best results can be achieved if the caster is focusing on something humorous, with the desire that laughter will weaken the Boggart.
  • Sectumsempra: A dark spell that creates large, blood-oozing gashes on the subject as if said subject had been "slashed by a sword".
  • Shooting Spell: Used to shoot objects.
  • (Stinging Hex, Stinging Jinx): Produces a stinging sensation in the victim, resulting in angry red welts and occasionally the severe inflammation of the affected area.
  • Stupefy (Stunning Spell): Stuns victim. If used too forcefully, it will put the victim in an unconscious state.
  • (Switching Spell): Causes two objects to be switched for one another.
  • Wingardium Leviosa (Levitation Charm): Levitates and moves the target; the wand motion is described as "swish and flick".
  • Apparition: is a magical method of transportation and is basically the magical action of travelling by having the user focus on a desired location in their mind, then disappear from their current location and instantly reappear at the desired location; in short, it is a form of teleportation. It is by far the fastest way to get to one's desired destination, but is tricky to pull off correctly and disastrous if botched up.
  • Flight: Using a broom to fly.
