Unforgivable Curses in Hogwarts Legacy

Two characters are fighting in Hogwarts Legacy.

As of now, only three curses have been officially confirmed by the developers. We do expect more to be added or confirmed soon, though.


Avada Kedavra

Avada Kedavra is the most famous Unforgivable Curse in the Harry Potter universe. It is a fatal spell and the only person who survived it is Harry Potter himself.

It is confirmed that Avada Kedavra will be one of Hogwarts Legacy spells that can instantly kill even the most potent enemies.


Even though Crucio is less popular than Avada Kedavra, it is one of the most potent Unforgivable Curses in the Harry Potter universe. In Hogwarts Legacy, this spell will stun enemies for a short period and damage them significantly. Also, enemies targeted by Crucio will not be able to attack.



Imperio is the last officially confirmed Unforgivable Curse in Hogwarts Legacy. It's an odd spell that makes enemies fight on your side, which can be helpful not only against powerful opponents, but weaker ones too. Also, all characters targeted with Imperio will get a green X-mark over them.

That’s it for what we know so far about Unforgivable Curses in Hogwarts Legacy. Only three have been confirmed so far, but we expect more to be added soon. While you are here, make sure to check our guide on how to get Elder Wand in Hogwarts Legacy.
