"Oh, that one had a great vogue during my time at Hogwarts. There were a few months in my fifth year when you couldn't move for being hoisted into the air by your ankle."
Remus Lupin[src]

The Levicorpus Spell[3] (Levicorpus[1]) was a jinx invented by Severus Snape under the alias of "The Half-Blood Prince"[1]. It could be used to hoist the victim into the air by their ankle, as though they were being lifted by a large anchor[1]. It had to be cast nonverbally to be successful[1].
