Now show me what you've learned. Immobilize it.

Magical Immobilization, also known as a Freezing Spell,[1] is a magical ability featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. It first appears in the fourth episode of the first season of Once Upon a Time.


Known Ways to Magically Immobilize

Types of Magical Immobilization

  • The most common freezing spell immobilizes the victim, completely. ("The Doctor" et al.)
  • A freezing spell can be cast in the way that the victim can still talk and make minimal movements. ("The Price of Gold" et al.)
    • This type is usually accompanied when using fairy dust and squid ink although, it is possible to achieve this effect with a simple spell. ("Pretty in Blue")
  • A certain freezing spell can immobilize body parts, instead of the whole body. ("We Are Both")
  • The spell can be cast in the way that it immobilizes not only the victim's body but also its memory. Once the spell is lifted, the victim will have no recollection that they've been immobilized. ("A Tale of Two Sisters")
