One or two rhyming couplets used to call forth a magical being, a Summoning Spell is often used by Witches to bring forth demons and other evil beings in order to vanquish them but is also used by forces of darkness including warlocks and demons. However, the main difference between a witch's summoning spell and one used by evil is that a witch's spell is often in English and is written in iambic pentameter whereas evil's spells are spoken in Latin or other such languages.

A summoning spell can also be used to summon spirits of the both the magical dead and normal mortals.

Summoning spells often invoke magical entities, such as the Power of Three, good magic or other forces.

Reversing Summoning Spells[edit | edit source]
