A love spell is a mystical action that causes an individual to fall hopelessly in love with someone whom they would otherwise have no interest in. This ability is generally performed by witches or warlocks and is considered to be a meager spell. The affect is usually temporary, but may be permanent depending upon the strength of the spell itself and/or the power of the one who casts it.

On the original Addams Family television series, Morticia Addams concocted a love dust potion that when sprinkled upon a subject, was designed to make them fall in love with a chosen individual. She used this on a suitor named Harvey in the hopes that he would fall in love with depressed cousin, Melancholia Frump. (Addams Family: Morticia, the Matchmaker)

In the original daytime Gothic soap opera Dark Shadows, the witch Angelique Bouchard created a love potion to make Jeremiah Collins and Josette du Prés fall in love with one another. (DS 374)

On the TV series Angel, a woman named Mrs. Frakes hired Angel Investigations to look into the actions of her allegedly unfaithful fiancé, Jerry, whom she believed had been affected by a love spell due to his time conversing with another woman online. As it turned out, Jerry was actually being lured to his potential doom by a life-sucking tree demon. It happens. (Angel: Couplet)
