—Homura Kogetsu, Chapter 21
Description[edit | edit source]
Soul Blade is a type of Ether Gear that lets the user create, shape, and utilize all manner of bladed weapons from Ether during combat, notably swords, sword spears and claw blades. The user is capable of splitting their weapon into two, allowing them to dual wield and change their style of combat, and increase their physical speed and range of attack. Its Ether can also be used for other purposes, such as catapulting others into the air. The blade can be broken if used on indestructible surfaces, and requires time for the user to create a replacement. However, it still retains its usual attack power.
The size and shape of the sword varies between users. Valkyrie Yuna's sword resembles a broadsword with a loop hilt, while Homura Kōgetsu's sword resembles a katana with an Ether ring serving as its tsuba. During her youth, Homura used a smaller, less intricate version of her sword.
Once created by the user it is possible for the Ether weapon to be wielded by somebody else.
