As Mad Eye Moody (well, Barty Crouch Jr. using a polyjuice potion to look like Mad Eye) put it:
“You could all point your wands at me and use [the killing curse] and I doubt I’d get as much as a nosebleed.” (paraphrased)
The unforgivable curses need a strong intent behind them to work properly. Even when HP used the Cruciatus curse on Bellatrix, she could still laugh even though she had just killed the closest thing HP had to a parent.
Jk Harry Potter is one of my favorites
@Pangbot, I think that example of HP using it on Bellatrix doesn't paint a clear picture.. I am inclined to believe Bellatrix was able to laugh because she's been tortured by Voldemort, and so she has both a high pain tolerance and she's psycho. Harry's spell was likely decently effective.
@SmartFeller, this is also supported by how easily they use the imperious curse in book 7
@SmartFeller, Hm, that’s a good point. I’d have to reread that bit of the book to see how it’s described.
@I am bacon man, I’m almost certain it’s never stated but I had always assumed the Imperious curse is the easiest of the 3 to use effectively on someone.
It’s practically human nature to want someone to do what you tell them but you have to be very angry or quite twisted to actively want to inflict pain/death on someone.
@Pangbot, I feel it would be hard purely because you want to truly violate a human's freedom and as a MURICAN that seems like a pretty big deal
@I am bacon man, unless they have oil because then who cares
Are these the Waverly Place wizard kids?
How did hermione practice any spells when she had muggle parents
Can someone explain this to me?
@AlwaysDownvotesAnime, that spell is meant to kill people
@AlwaysDownvotesAnime, Avada Kedavra is a spell that kills the person. Hermione uses it on Harry Potter; therefore, ending the movie as he’s the main character of everything
Easiest way to end the film franchise
