Magic Spells are a magical action used by witches to perform magic. It is generally performed using a magic wand. Unless specifically mentioned by a character in some form of media, these names and the spells' classifications are unofficial.


Spells are the primary mean by which witches carry out their magic. To be used, a spell requires basically two things: incantation and magical energy. If a witch pronounces the spell incorrectly, the wand does not channel magical energy and if they lack the necessary power to use it, the spell will fail.

While the simplest spells can be performed almost effortlessly, the more advanced spells require a higher level of skill and experience. The higher the user's level, the spells can be used at a higher level as well, as seen with Transformation spells, which can transform a target into a higher or lower stage.

After a witch has cast a spell a lot of times and has enough experience, spells can be used without verbal incantation.[1]

List of magic spells

This is a list of magic spells used by the characters of Little Witch Academia.

Offensive Magic Spells

These magic spells are usually used for offensive maneuvers.

Nullification Spell

The Nullification Spell or Luna Lana (ルーナラーナ Rūnarāna?) is a Fusion Magic spell that can negate any kind of magic. It is an extremely complicated spell that requires absolute concentration and self-control among its users.

This spell was used in The Enchanted Parade by Diana and Professor Finnelan to get rid of the mushroom monster that Akko and Sucy accidentally created during the class. It is used again at the end of the film by Akko, Lotte, and Sucy to defeat the giant.

Heat Blast Spell

The Heat Blast Spell is a magic spell that allows the caster to project a concentrated bolt of magic strong enough to destroy weak creatures and cripple a human in one blast. Although it was originally used for medical treatment like radiation therapy, the spell now mostly applied as a basic attack spell with the bolts can be used to stun, injure, or even evaporate a target if cast with enough power.

The spell's full destructive capability was shown in the first short film as demonstrated by Diana who evaporated an insectoid monster with a single blast while exploring Luna Nova Magical Academy's dungeon located beneath the New Moon Tower.

Akko hit with the spell.

In "Pappiliodya", Diana projected weaker bolts with this spell to destroy several Pappiliodya cocoons she confused with parasites and unintentionally injured Akko with it in the process when the Japanese tried to tell her the cocoons' true nature. In "The Road to Arcturus" on the other hand, Diana and Akko use this spell through the Shiny Rod to attack Croix's out of control Noir Dragon.

Counter Spell

Counter Spell is a spell that allows the user to absorb the enemy's magical attack and returns it to the opponent with the same power. The spell is very effective to counteract magic energy-based attacks such as magic beams.

In "Chariot of Fire", Ursula uses this spell to destroy Croix's sentinel statue.

Explosion Spell

The Explosion Spell is a spell that concentrates a large amount of magical energy before expels it in a big explosion within a medium to a wide radius around the caster. Very effective to either push the enemies away from the caster or freeing oneself from restraints.

In both "Wagandea" and "Chariot and Croix", Ursula uses this spell to free herself from Croix's Pixel Monster that devoured her. On both occasions, the great use of magic in this spell made her hair revert to its natural red, with the latter resulted in her identity revealed to her fan and student Akko.

Energy Serpent Spell

The Energy Serpent Spell is a spell that conjures a large snake-like magical energy beam from the tip of the user's wand that can home in on the target like a guided missile. While powerful, the spell is ineffective against fast-moving targets. This is both a secret spell and offensive magic of the House of Cavendish.

In "Intelligence and Sensibility", Daryl, Maril and Meril use this spell to attack Diana and Akko to stop them from reaching the ritual shrine.

Fiery Barrage Spell

Magical Barrier Spell

Magical Barrier Spell is a spell that creates a powerful barrier of magic energy around the user as a means of protection against attacks, be it physical, magical, or even gas attacks. The strength and duration of the barrier is dependent on the skill of its caster as well as amount of magic energy used to sustain it.

In Little Witch Academia, this spell was used by Diana to protect herself, Hannah and Barbara from the Minotaur. It was also used by Sucy to shield herself from the Ancient Dragon. This spell was used again in The Enchanted Parade by Diana and Professor Finnelan to protect themselves from the poison of the mushroom monster that Akko and Sucy accidentally created during the class.

In "Samhain Magic", this spell was used by Dorlin to avoid the residue of the explosion caused by the potion of some students during the Samhain Festival. In "Chariot of Fire", Ursula uses this spell to protect herself from the energy beam of the sentinel statue guarding Croix's lab in the New Moon Tower. In creation of such powerful barrier, her hair reverts to its original red color.

Reflecting Armor Spell
