The Dementor's Kiss is the harshest form of punishment the Ministry doles out. A Dementor's Kiss occurs when a Dementor lowers its hood and places its "mouth" over the mouth of the victim in order to suck out the victim's soul. Though the victim continues to exist physically, they are completely destroyed mentally. Many wizards consider the Dementor's Kiss to be a fate worse than death.

Barty Crouch, Jr. is given the Dementor's Kiss after the revelation that he has impersonated Alastor Moody at Hogwarts for a year (GF36). The Kiss is nearly administered to Sirius Black and Harry Potter (PA20), but thanks to Hermione's Time-Turner, Harry was able to save both himself and Sirius with a Patronus Charm (PA21).

One Dementor tried to Kiss Dudley Dursley in Little Whinging, Surrey on August 2, 1995, but Harry's Patronus stopped him (OP1).

The Muggle-born Registration Commission threatens Undesirables with the Dementor's Kiss if they refuse to go to Azkaban without complaining (DH13). When the Trio Apparates to Hogsmeade in search for Horcruxes, some Death Eaters are willing to let Harry be Kissed, believing that such an event will not violate the Dark Lord's orders of not killing Potter (DH28).
