Tis the sword meant to defeat the Demon King.

—Homura Kogetsu, Chapter 21

Soul Blade (ソウルブレイド Sōru Bureido) is a type of Ether Gear that utilizes the creation of bladed weapons made of Ether.

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[1] from Ether during combat, notably swords[2], sword spears[3] and claw blades.[1] 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.[4] Its Ether can also be used for other purposes, such as catapulting others into the air.[5] The blade can be broken if used on indestructible surfaces,[6] and requires time for the user to create a replacement.[7] However, it still retains its usual attack power.[5][8]

The size and shape of the sword varies between users. Valkyrie Yuna's sword resembles a broadsword with a loop hilt,[9] while Homura Kōgetsu's sword resembles a katana with an Ether ring serving as its tsuba.[10] During her youth, Homura used a smaller, less intricate version of her sword.[11]

Once created by the user it is possible for the Ether weapon to be wielded by somebody else.[12]
