""Avada Kedavra!" Moody roared. There was a flash of blinding green light and a rushing sound, as though a vast, invisible something was soaring through the air - instantaneously the spider rolled over onto its back, unmarked, but unmistakably dead."
—Barty Crouch Jr, disguised as Alastor Moody, cursing a spider[src]

The Killing Curse (Avada Kedavra) is a spell used to kill the victim instantly; it is illegal, though is used quite often throughout the twentieth century.

Harry Potter is the only known survivor of the Killing Curse and survived it multiple times in his lifetime.

Voldemort made regular use of the Killing Curse and created Horcuxes after committing a number of those murders.

The Killing Curse is generally considered to be "unblockable," though this seems to only refer to specific magical defences, such as the Shield Charm.
