The Chronophage (時喰み Tokihami, lit. "Time Eater") are space creatures that feasts on a planet's time. They are typically viewed as a great cosmic evil for the chaos their actions inflict.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Chronophages are large ethereal beasts seemingly without solid form. They are serpent-like in shape and are typically large enough to swallow a planet whole.[1]

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Norma arc[edit | edit source]

Guilst arc[edit | edit source]

Witch detects an ultra-high concentration of Ether in the Sakura Cosmos, caused by a Chronophage heading directly for the planet Guilst and consuming countless planets along the way.[1] When the Chronophage arrives, it consumes 1,200 years of the planet's time, erasing countless lives while also ironically turning the crime-filled world back into a natural paradise; the disaster would come to be known as "the day of Guilst's cleansing".[2] According to Creed, less than 10% of Guilst's population managed to escape before the Chronophage consumed the planet's 1,200 years of its time.[3]

Powers and Abilities[edit | edit source]

Time Consumption: Chronophages consumes a planet's time, causing the planet's history to be permanently rewound to an earlier state.[4] This effectively creates a new "reality" that turns the planet's past into its present, which also prevents any time paradoxes that may otherwise occur.[5]

  • Existence Erasure: By rewinding time, Chronophages erases the existence of anyone that wasn't on the target planet in the past. Witch describes this process as being unavoidable.[6]

Spaceflight: Chronophages are able to fly through space at high speed, allowing them to easily travel from world to world.[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name "Chronophage" and its Japanese equivalent (時食み Tokihami) loosely mean "time eater", with the former coming from the Greek words χρόνος (chronos, "time") and φαγεῖν (phagein, "to eat").
