You Dare Use My Own Spells Against Me
“You Dare Use My Own Spells Against Me” is a popular viral image stemming from both the hit fantasy film and book, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
Character Snape, an unfriendly Potions teacher at the fictional wizarding school, Hogwarts, declares the line during a pivotal battle scene with student and main protagonist, Harry Potter.
While the book came out in 2005 followed by the movie in 2009, it wasn't until 2014 when the official Harry Potter Twitter account posted the image that launched meme history.
Redditors and fellow Twitter users took flight with their own photoshopped versions of the image six years later with a massive appearance in the popular subreddit, r/dankmemes.
"You Dare Use My Own Spells Against Me" is a meme with many meanings; however, the most popular seems to be poking fun at dad jokes and a reaction image when a person has their own humor or aggression demonstrated to them.
Sometimes political, other times immature, the "You Dare Use My Own Spells Against Me" is a meme that may be just as popular as its film and book origin.
