|Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic|
Getsu no Metsuryū Mahō
Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic (月の滅竜魔法, Getsu no Metsuryū Mahō) is a Caster Magic, Lost Magic, Slayer Magic, and lastly as well as most obviously, a Dragon Slayer Magic which is focused upon the transformation of the physiology of the caster's body into a dragon, which are extremely powerful and flight-capable legendary creatures that are a strange mixture between serpentine, reptilian and avian traits that live in Earth Land; resulting in Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic revolving around the generation, manipulation, and the consumption as well as the absorption of the element known as moonlight as well as many other aspects of a moon, including its gravity and the effects it has on planet, reflective surface, time-keeping, etc; but mainly, the silver light that reaches the planet from the moon is the focus of what the caster creates, consumes, and manipulates.
Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic is considered an oddity among forms of Dragon Slayer Magic in that it is not taught per-se, but rather, it is obtained through the process of evolution that's achieved by a Water Dragon Slayer Magic interacting with the immeasurable might of Photon Dragon Slayer Magic, the so-called strongest form of Dragon Slayer Magic harnessed by the Dragon of Dragons, resulting in the combination of water and light to recreate the power of one of the largest natural satellites in the solar system; it is only utilized by Berserk Light Dragon Indra. However, after Rosa becomes an Elemenian and takes upon the form of High Elemenian of Light: Eltanin, when Tsuruko Sejren induces the process of Armatization through her bond with Rosa to combine their souls, Tsuruko's Soul Armour, Soul Armour Knight Gaiki is able to become Gaiki Dragon Formation, granting Tsuruko access to Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic for the duration of the merger.
As briefly mentioned above, Dragon Slayer Magic is a Caster Magic, Lost Magic, and last but not least, a Slayer Magic that allows its users to transform the physiology of their body into those of a dragon, a species of legendary creatures whom are oftentimes regarded as the strongest of all monsters with immeasurable power and intelligence dwelling within their bodies – dragons can be said to be less of an organic creature themselves but rather, an embodiment of the greatest power of all, and as such, these beings are revered and feared by all whom are knowledgeable of their existence, the mere mention of them causing shockwaves that radiate throughout the lands, magicians of all ranks and walks of life quivering at their name. More importantly, as "ultimate power made physical", they would need an "ultimate magic" to suit their very nature as power manifested in the mortal plane of existence; something that would be far above most magicians in the era that they made their mark on mankind. They could be thought of as "Elemental Magic made manifest and brought to its absolute zenith", though while a personification of the strongest power imaginable; the chains known as a "mortal body" that bind them to the dimension referred as Earth Land do not hinder their performance in battle in the slightest – in fact, their mortality and physical form allow them to utilize their unique Magic Origin which is referred to as the Factor of the Dragon (竜の因子, Ryū no Inshi); indeed, the dragon's origin produces a unique magical power that transcends what could be achieved by normal humans. Normally, a magician's body could be considered a machine which created magical energy, a Dragon's magic origin acts as living power plant which created magical energy, serving the purpose of an enormous magic core with tremendous capacity that generates all sorts of elemental energy that's independent from their body through the simple act of breathing, capable of serving as a power source to power countless appliances – all this works in conjunction alongside the perks that their biology normally gives them; and through application of magical manipulation, grants them the ability to reinforce the sheer power of their own body with their signature element which is assigned to them as birth; generating limitless quantities of their element with an absolute dominance over said element, bestowing upon the wielder of Dragon Slayer Magic fearsome power in the heat of combat. In this case, the dragon who taught the wielder was a Water Dragon, which granted them the ability of hydrokinesis, Dragon-style through Water Dragon Slayer Magic; however, through a certain interaction with the overwhelming light of infinity that's produced by Photon Dragon Slayer Magic, the Dragon Slayer Magic of the Dragon of Dragons, causing a massive upsurge of power through an unknown source which "lies beyond the Ley lines" in order to combine a single speck of light with the water and evolve their water-manipulating Dragon Slayer Magic into Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic. However, learning the moonlight-manipulating Dragon's power by transference, unlike most forms of obtaining First Generation Dragon Slayer Magic is an arduous ordeal, with not many users of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic managing to survive due to all of the moon's coldness transferring to their bodies.
In the case of the Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic when used by a dragon, the Berserk Light Dragon takes blatant advantage of the fact that her mortality and physical form enables her to utilize her unique draconic Magic Origin alongside the perks that her biology normally gives her; her biological structure has been perfectly attuned to how her Factor of the Dragon functions; more specifically, since with every breath, the Berserk Light Dragon generates energy independent from his body; which, through application of magical manipulation, grants her the ability to reinforce the sheer power of her own body with her signature element. But of course, no matter whom is utilizing this amazing power, whether it be the Berserk Light Dragon, Indra and the fragments of her soul given form through the experiments of the Magic Council, when inducing the activation process for Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic and thereby performing the signature lunar energy particle manipulation of the magic, the caster focuses intently as they fixate upon the effects the moon has upon the planet as they release the arcane energies that are dwelling within their Magic Origin outwards into the vicinity, from here inducing the usual fusion of eternano that's ambient within the atmosphere and said arcane energies while forcing a certain level of domination over these energies as they take the concept of magic equaling the feelings of the magician to the very next level - harnessing their willpower as a perfect catalyst, the wielder of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic manipulates the temperature down to the level that allows water to manifest from their very soul in a manner not dissimilar to other water-manipulating Dragon Slayer Magics, rearranging the atomic structure of the water to serve as an absorbent material, focusing upon the world as the soul-born water transmogrifies the magic power and eternano into protons, a subatomic particle with a positive electric charge and mass slightly less than that of a neutron which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon, consisting mostly of sunlight, with some starlight and earthlight reflected from those portions of its surface which the sun's light strikes. The light which is produced by Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic is on an entirely different tier than other forms of photokinetic-type magics, whether it be ordinary Light Magic, Ancient Spell-type powers such as the Three Great Fairy Magics, and other light-manipulating-type Slayer Magics such as the dramatically inferior White Dragon Slayer Magic; charged abundantly with the power of the moon, no form of magic is capable of absorbing this light; the release of this moonlight during the activation sequence can also be used for defense, with the wielder of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic conjuring impromptu walls and the like of moonlight to protect themselves from incoming attacks of all kinds.
Despite the boons bestowed upon the user as mentioned in the base description for all forms of this magic, the traits such as dramatically enhanced physical prowess and senses can be said to simply be side-effects of having the physiology of a dragon; indeed, the greatest ability of a wielder of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic is also its signature power – calling upon the assets of a dragon even if their bodily structure isn't one-hundred-percent the same as the beings from which this magic originated, the caster is capable of inducing a metamorphosis of their body structure as to take upon traits of a dragon instantaneously which is done in conjunction with the activation sequence of their moonlight, bestowing upon the user of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic; draconic lungs and enhanced vocal folds that are capable of spewing phenomenally powerful lunar rays, rigid plates known as scales that grow out of their skin which are laced with lunar energies to grant protection against moonlight and harmful effects that have to do with the moon, and fierce claws and nails which are enshrouded with moonlight, specifically attuned to defending the caster against incredible amounts of damage through their intensity – all of this combined, results in the physiology of a Dragon Slayer transforming their entire existence into that of a make-shift weapon whose ownership is unique to them and them alone, wielding the element of lunar energy harnessed by their dragon and passed down to them alongside the natural physical superiority of a dragon in combat, utilizing offensive ability, stamina, and vitality, to transmogrify themselves into the greatest weapon of all, thus dramatically increasing the damage inflicted upon anything that they come into contact with using the sheer force of their strikes in all ranges – however, as one may have suspected, close-combat is where Dragon Slayer Magic usually shines thanks to the overwhelming physical might of a dragon, as the magic massively bolsters the power of their unarmed blows with the user unleashing powerful close-range strikes that are empowering their physical attacks with wakes of highly destructive moonlight which wreak havoc on anything and everything that they come into contact with, whipping up innumerable wakes of moonlight with every movement taken. By invoking a similar process to the Crystallos Forge subspecies ability of Crystal Dragon Slayer Magic and the subspecies ability known as Photonic Forge of Photon Dragon Slayer Magic, the caster is capable of using the Magic Skill known as Shape Transformation on their moonlight as to forge it in the shape of constructs, which can be utilized in various manners in a similar manner to Molding Magic, these tools and familiars used for offensive and defensive maneuvers to keep the opponent on their feet. Effectively, this grants the user of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic the ability to manipulate, modify, consume, and generate from their body moonlight to their fullest extent; they have absolute dominance over anything considered to be related to "cold", "light", "lunar energy", and everything related to and dwelling within all three aspects which compose this Dragon Slayer Magic's element.
Something that should be taken into consideration is that not only does the moonlight produced by these arcane powers possess qualities that make them colder than normal forms of light to the point that the energy produced could be considered akin to a Unison Raid between Light Magic and Ice Magic, stemming from the obvious fact that in daytime, the temperature felt on the planet is relatively high, even in winter (at least in comparison) while at nighttime, the temperatures are known to be much colder, not displaying White Dragon Slayer Magic's power of doling out justice to those whom deserve karma nor Photon Dragon Slayer Magic's high-density photonic energy that annihilates anything it comes into contact with, but rather, the moonlight released by Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic instills a low temperature within the atmosphere as spells are being cast and unleashed, causing a slight cooling resonating effect that spreads out for several miles as to affect ambient mundane and supernatural particles in the vicinity, also cooling them down while converting them into photons, allowing these newly transformed particles to be used for even more Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spells; not only this, these cold beams are able to induce a shivering sensation in anyone within the vicinity as well as freeze opposing spells solid. When the caster attacks an enemy with the moonlight of this magic, the sense of cold produced is on a lower temperature than almost any other form of Elemental Magic with the exception of the actual element of ice such as Ice Devil Slayer Magic; the release of lunar energy accompanied by the stirring of super-cold air that induces a peculiar cold front effect which momentarily replaces the warmer temperatures of the immediate vicinity with a cooler one, allowing for a greater manifestation of moonlight than normal. In a similar manner to its sister magic, Solar Dragon Slayer Magic, Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic, while it mainly revolves around the manipulation, creation, and absorption of moonlight, possesses various other properties that help its claim to be not just "moonlight" but "the moon itself", with these effects derived from various properties that the presence of the moon instills upon the planet. Indeed, as the moon is the brightest object in the sky, right after the sun, the prominence of the moon in the sky and its regular cycle of lunar phases have made this celestial object an important cultural influence on language, calendars, art and mythology. The Moon's gravitational influence produces the ocean tides, body tides, and the minute lengthening of the day. The Moon's current orbital distance, about thirty times the diameter of Earth, with its apparent size in the sky equivalent to that of the sun, enabling the moon to cover the Sun nearly precisely in total solar eclipses. The Moon and its lunar cycle are associated with the emotions, madness (lunacy), subconscious and dreams, fertility (especially female one), blood, illusions, transformation, intuition and repeating cycles; in the case of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic, these associations are capable of being manifested property-wise ever-so-slightly if the caster wishes it, allowing a great deal of customization in terms of their attacks.
Due the fact that the tides on the planet are mostly generated by the gradient in intensity of the moon's gravitational pull from one side of the planet to the other in the form of tidal forces and as such is associated with the classical element known as water, the user of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic is capable of affecting all sources of water from low-level magics such as Water Magic to higher-tier arcane powers the likes of Water Dragon Slayer Magic, with their moonlight not only diverting and dissipating these aquatic powers but also piercing through their compositions by the way of the emission of a variety of frequencies; the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit time from the lunar energy produced by their magic that the user either gathers or emulates from their being if the enemy's attack were to collide with the moonlight; also, because of these properties, the caster can integrate lunar water, which is water that is present on the Moon, into the attacks of their Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic, allowing them to create, shape and manipulate these waters alongside their moonlight to produce a variety of effects. Through this aspect manipulation, the caster is able to integrate the phenomena of moon dust, the fine fraction of the regolith found on the surface of the Moon, and are composed of various types of particles including rock fragments, mono-mineralic fragments, and various kinds of glasses including agglutinate particles and volcanic and impact spherule; the properties can differ significantly from those of terrestrial soil into their attacks, causing their spells to become accompanied by moon dust particles which can not only increase the power of their spells by manipulating the density, speed, and sharpness and reinforcing the hardness of the moonlight to add more strength and durability to their strikes, but also manipulate these grains rather minutely alongside the moonlight produced by Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic, focusing upon the silicon particles saturated upon the moon and directing it in accordance to their willpower, each moon dust particle possessing a high degree of sharpness to the point that they effectively function as microscopic blades of grain that can rend alloys in twain and strip flesh from the bones of a human – the addition of moon dust into their arsenal also allows them to induce granulation in order to transform anything their blows come into contact with through the cutting and shredding capabilities of the moon dust into, well, more moon dust, ranging in size from relatively rough to fine dust which is then added to the already collected sum of moon dust – once enough moon dust has been gathered, it automatically shapes itself into a permanent asymmetric moon dust cloud that resembles the one that exists around the Moon, created by small particles from comets.
Not only this, the moon has an exceptionally low albedo, giving it a reflectance that's only slightly brighter than worn-out asphalt, but even so, it's still the brightest object in the sky – the reason for such is due to the opposition surge brightening its rough surface with many particles as to enhance its luster when illuminated from directly behind the observer; at quarter phase, the Moon is only one-tenth as bright, rather than half as bright, as at full moon. This, in battle, allows Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic to possess properties that are akin to Defenser Counter and Reflector, with each and every one of the caster's spells instantly returning everything that has even the slightest trace of light back to sender at twice the speed and force, meaning that with only a few exceptions, it's damn-near-impossible to stop a Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spell once its activation sequence has been completed and it's ready to be cast. The defensive capabilities of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic eclipse the likes of uncategorized spells such as Defenser as well as full magics like Barrier Magic, Reflector, Shield Magic, Defense Magic, Maximum Defense Seal, Jutsu Shiki, in addition to negation-type magics similar to Dispel and its spell Moon Drip, Nullification Magic, and many more such as the Requip armour Adamantine Armour and its Adamantine Barrier, with the force and scope of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic's protective abilities effortlessly surpassing Fairy Sphere. The moonlight projected by this magic not only has the effect of reducing the temperature of the vicinity, but it also reduces the energy of the eternano and kinetic forces of anything that it comes into contact with to its lowest point as to completely negate any level of threat that an opposing spell no matter its tier or power, the spells instantly dissipating upon reaching the moonlight released by Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic, fragmenting into innumerable particles and scattering to the winds harmlessly. The tensile strength of the moonlight emitted by the magic is capable of being focused into beams or wakes, but given its godlike defensive capabilities, it is near-constantly projected in the form of hard barriers of silvery light that can be molded through the caster's thoughts into various shapes, properties, and sizes in accordance to the situation, causing the defensive properties of this magic to be almost infinitely adaptable – though it can also be released as an aura of moonlight that is barely visible and possesses the usual effects of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic; each transformation that the defensive moonlight undergoes is induced by the caster's mental commands alone, with no real need to pump any magical energies into its composition to alter their shape and size. The forms that the moonlight projected by Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic range from relatively simple forms to far more complex manifestations- the caster can change these defensive lights into rectangular planes, cylinders, globes, domes, cones, and many more- it should be noted that the complexity of the shape the moonlight takes upon is limited by the caster's ability to mentally visualize a particular form and keep it in sharp mental focus: with the smallest force projection they can visualize and maintain the visualization is the size of a marble; in contrast, the largest solid force projection they can visualize and maintain is about one hundred feet in diameter. Small objects at high speeds become missiles; large objects at slow speeds become battering rams, and the caster can make these objects grow or shrink as desired.
The caster is capable of changing the force of the impact of the defensive forces released by the magic and speed of its projection- by compressing moonlight to its utmost limit while accelerating its projection speed to the fullest extent, the caster is able to launch their barriers as lasers of a sort which are capable of piercing through anything and everything that gets in their way, never stopping moving in a straight line until the pseudo-laser makes contact with something the caster has designated as their target. Adding to the versatility is the fact that the caster has displayed the ability to grant successive layers of the defensive powers the ability to harness the properties of different forms of the moon's power, either all at once or by one layer at a time, allowing for almost innumerable combinations to surprise the foe no matter what they throw at the caster. The defensive powers of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic is difficult to pinpoint in regard to size and area-of-effect, as it is horribly inconsistent, but there is one certain thing—when an attack attempts to breach the moonlight's defenses, nine times out of ten, the attack will fail. Of course, through the symbolism of the moon as a source of healing, the caster is able to rejuvenate their fatigue and regenerate from their wounds, either focused upon themselves by using lunar elements or the power of the moon itself in a similar manner to Healing Magic, meaning that the user can serve as a White Mage (白魔道士, Shiromadōshi, White Magic Adherent) of sorts; indeed, the user is quite possibly one of the best healers around. The healing power granted by it is extremely high, having been described as effortlessly capable of healing wounds inflicted by a real Dragon. Concretely, it was enough to almost completely cure most injuries it was used on so far, and to nullify the effects of powerful poisons such as standard Poison Magic and even Poison Dragon Slayer Magic, and is capable of restoring the body internally and externally including a patient's fatigue and body stress, something made more formidable by the fact that healing magic is long-lost, and believed to be nonexistent anymore. In addition to healing, Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic can also grant support in battle, by boosting allies' physical prowess, resulting in this magic working in a similar manner to Sky Dragon Slayer Magic's 'buff' spells such as Troia, Vernier, Arms, Armor, Re-Raise, Deus Corona, and Deus Eques, plus all of their derivative spells, albeit vastly superior to the former as the caster can target anyone or even multiple people at once within a thousand kilometer radius and then heal them and/or boost their physical capabilities twentyfold with a single thought, the properties of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic constantly drawing power from the moon even when it isn't in sight in order to assist the power of their status buffs and healing abilities and remove any enormous amounts of magic costs while doing so.
The Moon has an atmosphere which is more or less a tenuous layer of gases as to be nearly vacuum, with a total mass of less than ten metric tons; more specifically, nine point eight long tons and eleven short tons. This not only allows the caster to adapt to the vacuum unaided, but also withstand atmospheres such as heat intensity and any poisonous chemical elements, radiation, strange gravity, and of course, a lack of the air, resulting in the user of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic being completely immune to the effects of Airspace, a powerful magic that can suck the magical energies out of its targets. Going further, by attuning this adaption to the moonlight produced by Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic, the user's attacks can take upon the properties of vacuum, the atmospheric region devoid of physical matter and energy; as air molecules exist within what would be an otherwise empty space, the user can twist the region of vacuum through their moonlight in order to manipulate air, creating winds of varying levels including tornadoes and hurricanes, reject air to create vacuums and air blasts, defending the caster against fire-based magics and Sound Magic as both arcane powers require atmospheric air as a medium to function. While the magnetic field that's produced by the moon is very weak in comparison to the magnetic field of the planet, with an external magnetic field of about one to one hundred nanoteslas, less than one-hundredth that of Earth, the user of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic is still able to integrate traces of Magnetism Magic into their attacks, allowing the moonlight produced to draw objects towards the spells, thus increasing the chances of dealing severe damage, or repulsing them away to produce a greater effect. Additionally, the moon's gravitation is much lighter than that of the planet's, granting the caster a dramatically enhanced agility and speed that's even faster than the likes of High Speed and Slowing Magic. However, even with all of these fantastic properties taken into consideration that the caster is capable of unleashing simply through the manipulation of moonlight, it should be clearly defined that in the case of more out-there traits of the moon such as using it's importance to many ancient cultures in measuring time in order to perform a variant of Time Magic, such a thing is downright impossible due to a number of factors, the most notable of which is that Slayer Magics cannot harness 'aspects' of a world, such as time and space. When the wielder of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spreads their wings to absorb light and glitters, they resemble a beautiful night sky, instilling a sense of awe upon those whom witness the caster's beauty.
As with all forms of Dragon Slayer Magic, Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic has virtually unlimited customization options in regards to the element formed through simple magical manipulation and reinforced through the power of a dragon – the colour of the moonlight that are produced by the magic is able to be altered freely, its properties which aren't limited to but include temperature, the smell that it emits, its taste, and overall "feel" is capable of being modified to the user's liking for countless different effects and powers, more often than not being attuned to the user's own personality and ambitions; the type of damage that the moonlight inflicts upon anything that it comes into contact with is able to be changed at will; in its normal state, Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic seems to have a "blasting" effect to it, each and every one of its attacks seemingly causing damage that can just bust anything it comes into contact with into pieces alongside the user's power given a corporal form in their element; just as mentioned above, the moonlight of this form of Dragon Slayer Magic also possesses immense defensive power that can be used to stop anything that's sent the caster's way in its tracks. Like all Slayer Magics, the user's element is much tougher than any other example of it; in the case of the user, the moonlight which is produced by Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic is stronger than normal cold or light, capable of shrugging off anything thrown their way, enabling the user to overwhelm other forms of said energies. Of course, as the highest form of elemental manipulation around, the wielder of Lonar Dragon Slayer Magic is capable of harnessing their magic in any manner that they deem to be suitable, commonly changing between offensive, defensive, evasive, or supplementary potencies in accordance to the situation at hand; but generally, as long as the Dragon Slayer is able to imagine these incredible solar energies being used in a particular manner and it doesn't break the laws of physics or conflict with any established limitations, then the sky is the limit, more or less. As per the nature of Slayer Magic, a Dragon Slayer is immune to the effects of their own element, and in this case, the wielder of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic can consume external sources of their "elements", which is "cold" and "light" and anything considered to be those elements in order to replenish their strength, both stamina-wise and magic-wise. They are also naturally immune to the effects of their own moonlight that came from both their own person and to those from other sources, including most types of Water Magic and Light Magic, due to their capability of nullifying moonlight-based attacks by sucking them in and eating them, but must consume it through their mouths if they are to actually absorb it into their bodies; while they can't consume the moonlight when produced by themselves, it should be taken into consideration that Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic also bestows upon the wielder immunity to effects related to the moonlight as well such as an absolute resistance to the cold; though unlike other types of light-based Slayer Magic, a user of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic is capable of absorbing any trace of water and cold in the immediate vicinity no matter if it's artificial or natural, and/or use the correct reactions in order to produce moonlight continuously.
Just like how Solar Dragon Slayer Magic enables the same ability, as part and parcel of their masterful control over a phase of daytime as well as their Elemental Consumption Method, the wielder of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic is able to absorb all forms of light and convert it into any form of energy they wish as long as they can manipulate it; this energy, when assimilated into their body, can be used to regenerate their wounds, stamina, and magical energy within their Factor of the Dragon, or to dramatically amplify the output and overall scope of the proceeding strike. While storing energy or absorbing energy, the wielder of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic also has the choice of using the intense light that radiates from their body's surface to draw the moonless dark veil known as night over the radiance of the day. However, this ability plays a major part in the activation of the "super mode" of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic known as Full Moon Phase as detailed below. The powers of Solar Dragon Slayer Magic and Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic do not only respectively embody the sun and the moon, but they can be said to be an apotheosis of what's known as the shield and spear paradox, a contradiction that's a form of the omnipotence paradox, which is a simple demonstration that challenges omnipotence: "Can God create a stone so heavy that even God is not strong enough to lift it?" The shield and spear paradox is essentially what occurs when an immovable object meets an irresistible force, resulting in the effect coming up because it rests on two incompatible premises: that there can exist simultaneously such things as irresistible forces and immovable objects. Following the philosophical book, Han Feizi, where a man was attempting to sell a spear and shield, and when asked about the quality of both, he answered that the former could pierce any shield and the latter could defend against all spear attacks; yet, he did not have an answer as to what would happen if the two were to collide. The "paradox" is flawed because if there exists an irresistible force, it follows logically that there cannot be any such thing as an immovable object and vice versa – this represents that Vritra and Indra will always be in conflict until the cycle of revenge is broken by an outside force greater than irresistible and immovable. As the Immovable Shield, Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic has defensive and supplementary properties beyond anything else that could be considered a supernatural power yet does not break the laws of the arcane, providing healing greater than the most skilled of Healing Magic wielders and protective capabilities that effortlessly surpass the likes of Fairy Sphere, defending the caster against anything with no exceptions. The two celestial-embodying powers that were forged to slay dragonkind properly countering each other, it's said that if met on the battlefield, the sun and the moon colliding would result in an apocalypse; even further, if the Berserk Light Dragon or the Tyrant Dragon were to obtain the power of their counterpart and combine the might of the sun and the moon inside of their bodies in a Dual-Element Dragon Mode, it would give birth to an immeasurably vast power that's akin to the creation of the universe, the big bang.
- Luna Erga (
月竜の咆哮, Runa Eruga lit. Lunar Dragon's Roar): Luna Erga is a Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spell which grants the caster the ability to release a concentrated beam of lunar energy from their mouth. Luna Erga is the hyperresonance ability of a dragon, attuned to the element of moonlight – as such, it obviously works best with Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic. When performing Luna Erga, the user utilizes their enhanced lung capacity in order to gather and condense ambient eternano from within the atmosphere and store it momentarily within their mouth- from here, the user utilizes their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon. Once this is done, in order to unleash the magical energy, the user utilizes the Dragon Cords (竜帯, Ryūtai), a dragon's equivalent of vocal cords which produce a louder and harsher sound while amplifying anything emitted from their mouth tremendously, resulting in a massive blast of energy spewing forth from their mouth towards the target; in the case of Luna Erga, which, of course, as its name would suggest, is based around moonlight; this has the effect of the Dragon's Roar being unleashed in the form of a silvery crescent wave of moonlight that travels across the earth like a shark's fin, rending through the solid surface – however, Luna Erga can be fired through the atmosphere without harnessing the earth as a medium in any way. This crescent of moonlight barrels forward, travelling great distances at breakneck speeds beyond human reaction time; its destructive power obliterates any and all obstacles in its path as the crescent of moonlight continuously expands through a never-ending absorption of any and all sources of light, whether artificial or not, in the immediate vicinity, adding to its might, size, and speed; thanks to the cold properties of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic, while in motion, Luna Erga induces a reduction in temperature for everything that it comes into contact with while freezing opposing spells. The velocities at which Luna Erga allows it to impact upon the opponent's vulnerable frame in the blink of an eye with a precision and launch speed comparable to the speed of light itself, contact with the user's target results in the release of shockwaves which radiate outwards and are strong enough to bust anything they propagate across to shreds, spreading out over a fair amount of distance as to enhance the area-of-effect of Luna Erga; Luna Erga is powerful enough to strike multiple enemies and even two adjacent foes simultaneously; violently pushing the intended opponent and objects around them away from the user with overwhelming blunt force. The whiplash of the attack can be quite huge, usually blowing apart anything behind the user at the time of attack, commonly leaving a crater in the wake of firing. While it penetrates any defensive measure taken against it, Luna Erga will "fizzle" out after a certain range, but if charged to the maximum, it can hit twice, and will continue to fly without fading; the trajectory of the moonlight crescent can be altered, allowing the user to strike more than one opponent.
- Luna Erga – Scattershot (
月竜の咆哮・光散月鳴, Runa Eruga –Sukyattāshotto lit. Lunar Dragon's Roar – Shining Diffusion Moon Cry): Luna Erga – Scattershot is a variant of Luna Erga where multiple rays of moonlight are launched towards the target simultaneously, blasting a multitude of opponents or focusing on a single target. But in any case, when performing Luna Erga – Scattershot, the caster firstly inhales ambient eternano within their atmosphere into their mouth, adding their own magical power into the mixture to induce the usual fusion of eternano and magical energy while attuning it to their element of moonlight – the speed at which the moonlight swirls around in their jaw serves as a propellant to the moonlight, charging it up for the briefest of moments. Once the charging phase has been completed, the user unleashes a mighty roar that unleashes an enormous amount of silvery light as the moonlight that they generated takes the form of a large sphere, compressing the moonlight of the roar into the silver orb as to add the property of scattering to the howl of moonlight. With a single mental command, the caster forces the orb of moonlight to explode violently, causing the swirling and shining sphere to detonate and break off into the form of a cascade of shining silver beams that are reminiscent of shooting stars, erupting in a fanned out manner. These silver bolts are not only capable of going through walls - coupled with the fact that there are nine of them, providing a decent range - but they are also capable of destroying most enemies in one hit as they lock-on to their opponents no matter their position, chasing after them at incredible speed; they possess tremendous force and are touted to chase their foes to the ends of the earth, no matter where the foe is standing, even if they possessed high speed, as they would catch their foe eventually. The shooting stars can move at impossible angles that always manage to reach its target; they will always change their path around any obstacles or pierce through any wall in order to reach their target. As they move though the atmosphere, they gather and condense stray magical particles upon their forms to increase in speed. They can dodge obstacles in their way, unless it is not physically possible, never ceasing their hunt until they catch their prey. Foes are thus bombarded by a barrage of beams which inflict heavy damage, striking them in rapid succession; even if the opponent is in midair, the spam of silver rays will travel towards them, constantly hitting with full force. While individually, each beam fired from Luna Erga – Scattershot is only a fifth of the original Luna Erga's strength, together, they all add up to the exact power of the true Lunar Dragon's Roar.
- Luna Erga – Condenshot (
月竜の咆哮・集束砲号, Runa Eruga –Sukyattāshotto lit. Lunar Dragon's Roar – Focused Ordinance Edition): Luna Erga – Condenshot is a variant of Luna Erga where the caster fires a compressed blast of moonlight that expands outwards into a swirling dome of shining destruction upon impact with a surface. When performing Luna Erga – Condenshot, the caster firstly inhales ambient eternano within their atmosphere into their mouth, adding their own magical power into the mixture to induce the usual fusion of eternano and magical energy while attuning it to their element of moonlight – the speed at which the moonlight swirls around in their jaw serves as a propellant to the moonlight, charging it up for the briefest of moments. Once the charging phase has been completed, the user compresses the enormous roaring wave of moonlight about to be released upon their foe into a much smaller form- at this point, the caster unleashes a mighty roar that spawns a downright miniscule sphere of moonlight from their maw – this miniature pulsating orb is exceptionally faster than most variants of the Luna Erga, as it contains every ounce of moonlight manifested during the charging phase of the spell compacted within its existence, allowing it to move at speeds even beyond most other Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spells; the orb shoots towards their opponent, impacting before they can even react in accordance – upon contact with a solid surface, all the shining energy compressed into the Lunar Erga – Condenshot decompresses, expanding outwards quite suddenly and swiftly, erupting in the form of a gigantic sphere of glittering moonlight that forms a negative space, where everything inside the blast radius is devastated, while nothing outside of it is even touched; but even so, existences which are affected are rent asunder through both the intensity of the moonlight that composes the dome of annihilation and the serial of shockwaves released through the sheer force of the impact of Luna Erga – Condenshot upon the solid surface. Luna Erga – Condenshot is best used while airborne, as from there, the caster has a wider choice of where they want the dome of glittering moonlight to form with the spell.

- Glorious Spike (
月竜の月牙, Gurōriasu Supaiku lit. Lunar Dragon's Moon Fang): Glorious Spike is a basic Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spell that is the light-derived equivalent to other single-strike close-range Dragon Slayer spells; effectively, Glorious Spike allows the user to imbue their leg with moonlight and strike forward with an ultra-fast kick that possesses incredible power and leaves large wakes of moonlight in the arc of the user's strike. In any case, when performing Glorious Spike, the caster focuses before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon, all focused around one or more of their legs. From here, the caster shapes this moonlight in the form of a sphere that's compressed around their foot, giving off the resemblance of their leg simply becoming immersed in moonlight, shining brightly as to illuminate the vicinity and cause those who gaze upon the user to look away out of fear of going blind. Once this process has been completed, the user begins the true attacking portion of the spell as they thrust their leg forward and swinging their foot in front of them from ground level to head level at maximum height, via swinging their leg inward, striking towards the enemy at a speed left unequalled, theorized by some to actually be the speed of light- it truly seems as if the user has used the moonlight gathered upon their leg in order to extend their leg and strike their opponents at a longer range; the strike immediately reaches the opponent's body first, which from that perspective seems "zoomed in." The user can increase the striking reach of their foot by 'charging up' by means of first repeatedly swinging their kicking leg around before using the spinning force to both engulf the leg in moonlight to its utmost limits, and to maximize the hitting power. The moonlight compressed upon the user's leg has an intensity that sears the opponent upon impact in conjunction with dealing sheer blunt damage, and the velocity that Glorious Spike is cast is intense to a point that even the slightest of movements travel at speeds faster than anyone, even those with clairvoyance, cannot predict. It is one of the user's most powerful blows; mostly because of it's "multi-hit" feature which doubles the damage as the moonlight condensed upon their foot spreads out onto the opponent at the moment of contact, swirling around them in a powerful spiral, creating a grinding drill effect that blasts into the opponent, inflicting major damage and launching them far away, creating an impact which is powerful enough to propel the unlucky recipient several meters away. Glorious Spike is capable of being utilized in many manners, such as a normal one hundred and eighty degree roundhouse kick, a three hundred and sixty degree roundhouse kick, which is used to surprise opponents who attempt to attack the caster from behind, and a flying side kick.
- Extension: Moonlight Barrage (
追加攻撃・朧鼬彗星脚, Ekusutenshon: Mūnraito Barāji lit. Additional Attack: Moonlight Assault Comet Leg): Extension: Moonlight Barrage is a Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spell and, as the prefix of "additional attack" would indicate, a variant of the Glorious Spike spell and a retooled version of the Dragon Slayer's Secret Art known as Moonflower: Moonlight Assault which Rosa used as her main finishing attack for a while – Extension: Moonlight is a single-move combo-type attack where the caster unleashes a powerful flurry of kicks towards their target with their feet engulfed in moonlight, creating a piercing effect that involves moonlight shredding the enemy after each subsequent contact. When performing Extension: Moonlight Barrage, the caster focuses before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon, all focused around both of their legs, with the moonlight becoming visible through the sheer amount of magical energy there is, which intensify exponentially to the point that it appears that it has taken upon the form of a dragon's head. The high concentration of moonlight produces a sound that is similar to that of a scream of an dragon's roar. There, the caster suddenly makes the position of the stars of the dragon constellation, before letting fly with a furious onslaught of over one hundred kicks towards the opponent, striking at a speed beyond the sight of the untrained eye; as the user fuels more and more of their moonlight into the attack, more kicks may strike, until they reach the speed of thunder crashing, or, in some cases, a velocity beyond even that, beyond any mortal comprehension. The kicks land so fast that, after a volley, they seemingly connect simultaneously. The massive circles of air bursts from the kicks surrounding the user resemble actual comets, bombarding the opponent relentlessly as the moonlight focused around their legs unleash their full might as to instill a penetrative effect that rends all forms of protection in twain while lacerating the opponent's body –the sheer force of Extension: Moonlight Barrage is capable of rendering the impressive defensive capabilities of an Iron Dragon Slayer's Iron Dragon Scales completely null and void and destroy an entire large-sized building; at its strongest point, Extension: Moonlight Barrage is capable of shattering a Gold-level Celestial Spirit to nothing to atoms and even a producing a force to rival that of the Celestial Spirit King's Meteor Blade attack.
- Extension: Moonlight Barrage (
- Moon Drip (
月の雫, Mūn Dorippu lit. Drip of the Moon): Moon Drip is a peculiar existence; while it's normally a Dispel spell, given it's connotations with the moon, this power is capable of being harnessed by any moon-based magic, including Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic – Moon Drip is a power that negates and dispels anything that the caster activates it upon. In any case, this belianese spell requires the light of the moon to react, gathering the magical energies of the moon in a single place before utilizing it to deactivate any possible spell, no matter it's power or tensile strength, albeit it requires a lot of Magic Power, as it took Lyon Vastia three years to gather enough for the spell to melt Deliora's ice. Aside from that, this spell produces exhaust fumes that crystallize and eventually create a layer in the sky, which has an unhealthy effect on Demons, as it affects their memories. However, in the case of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic, Moon Drip functions slightly differently – when performing Moon Drip, the caster focuses before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon; from here, the caster channels the moonlight upon one of their limbs or a currently equipped weapon; intensifying the qualities of the moonlight as to have these energies serve as a pathway for the magical energy of the moon itself. Compressing the moonlight to its utmost limit, the caster then the user concentrates the particles at a single point, allowing the numerous energies to gain an edge as the aura around the point becomes a silvery purple in texture. Upon contact with anything supernatural in nature, the moon's power superimposes itself upon anything it comes into contact with, barreling through the opposing collection of eternano that composes the offending spell, causing everything else to be shoved aside into fragments of eternano, essentially breaking it into pieces, nullifying the enemy's attack and dispersing its power at the point of contact. Additionally, when performing Moon Drip, the user has a very ample radius in which the spell may be employed from; meaning that essentially, they can cast it from any angle that they wish, allowing a three hundred and sixty degree defense, but the drawback is that the user can only nullify one spell at a time, but the user can nullify an opposing attack by simply waving the assault away, or using their limbs, such as their elbow, to nullify a spell. The addition of Moon Drip into their arsenal allows the caster to strike straight through any obstacles and defenses which would give any other magician a difficult time.
- Accellight (
光素竜の光速瞬動, Akuseruraito lit. Light Element Dragon's Light-Speed Instant Movement Technique): Accellight, also known as the Wings of Light (光の翼, Hikari no Tsubasa) and constantly referred to in the narration of Daybreak as "going into lightspeed" (光速化, kōsokuka) is a supplementary ability of all light-element Dragon Slayer Magics; it allows the user to move at the speed of light, zipping around in the air at unimaginable velocities; waltzing around without any hindrances. When activating Accellight, as with all light-element Dragon Slayer Magics, the caster focuses before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon; these newly-formed lights of the moon swirl around the caster's body before enveloping their frame in its entirety. From here, the caster uses their mastery over moonlight to defy gravity by eliminating their own weight, allowing them to stay aloft in mid-air for undefined periods. At that point, by utilizing expert magical manipulation as a small "push", the user can take off at high speed with perfect timing, so the user could remain flying in the same place without any thought. When in motion while using Accellight, the user manifests a ring of moonlight upon their back which captures the winds with its thin curtain of magical particles, propelling the user and allowing them to build up speed over time as they dart through the air. Accellight, as the name would indicate, enables the user to move at a speed that nobody else can comprehend; all the user is required to do is utilize magical manipulation to serve as a kick-off point; granting them "true flight", moving throughout the air as free as a bird, or rather, in a "deeper" term, like a plastic bag in the wind. In any case, Accellight drastically augments their movements with the power of moonlight, allowing them to fly swiftly, or even shoot up vertical surfaces; moving dozens upon dozens of times faster than somebody using any form of high-speed movement spells while maintaining flight for extremely long periods of time. The user's speed appears to create up to eight doubles of themselves while in motion. These doubles are not illusory; they are moving at a speed between different positions that is vastly faster than the speed of sound. As such, were all the doubles to attack at once, it would mean that the user is attacking from all those positions simultaneously, giving them incredible destructive power. Similarly, because of this same speed, attacking the doubles would be futile as the user would have moved long before the attack even reaches them. The speed and after-images granted by Accellight allow the user to effectively dodge all sorts of multi-directional attacks. Activating this attack causes a slip stream of moonlight effect that allows the user to achieve speeds normally impossible them in any location. By charging the particles with magical energy, this allows the user an additional defensive measure as well as immense propulsion. Even if someone could detect the trajectory of their movements, it is considered to be nearly impossible to catch the user, as with their speed, the user is capable of assaulting their opponents with quick, but powerful, melee attacks – more about this is detailed below in "Starstrike Flash". The user can also enhance their already swift flight speed by riding on strong gusts of wind, and can slow or deflect falls by creating cushions of air. When used in the heat of battle, Accellight causes the user to appear as if they are simply flowing around their opponents without expending any energy at all, letting the opponent tire themselves out and thus creating exploitable openings. This conservation of energy, combined with their high stamina, gives the user an advantage in prolonged combat. Following Issac Newton's first law of motion, the user will accelerate indefinitely as long as they keep moving.
- Accellight – Starstrike Flash (
光素竜の光速瞬動・螺旋連撃降臨, Akuseruraito – Sutāsutoraiku Furasshu lit. Light-Element Dragon's Light-Speed Instant Movement Technique: Spiralling Serial Strike Descent): Accellight – Starstrike Flash is an extension of the Accellight light-speed movement ability; it allows the caster to charge into their opponent at the speed of light, blasting them away. When performing Accellight – Starstrike Flash, the user, while the standard Accellight ability is active, focuses their magical energies while invoking their light-element Dragon Slayer Magic's activation phase once more, utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon – these silvery lights coalesce around the caster's body while they mentally direct the stray silver lights just generated moments ago to merge with their current form, causing an orb of dark moonlight to envelop their frame, signifying the dual cosmic forces of yin and yang while spiralling golden streaks of moonlight scatter off of their body, all while gearing Accellight towards offensive measures. Now, the caster is capable of charging forward with immense force and at light-speeds in a maneuver resiminent of a flying tackle, plowing through and destroying everything in their path almost effortlessly; the force of the impact upon the user's designated opponent additionally transfers the momentum generated by the caster's movements into kinetic energy through their entire body, imparting the kinetic energies that build up with their speed into each point of impact, releasing shockwaves that radiate across the contact surface accompanied by a small explosion that can send the opponent careening across the earth. Not only this, as Accellight enables the caster to move about at the speed of light, once the user has struck the opponent even once, they have effectively locked their adversary into a cycle of hurting as they zip about, pulling off various charging attacks from all directions with the enemy unable to escape this vicious flurry of tackles. Aside from its offensive capability, as with the original, Accellight – Starstrike Flash also permits quick mobility.
- Accellight – Starstrike Flash (
- Gibbous Barricade (
月竜の障月波防御帯, Gibausu Barikēdo lit. Lunar Dragon's Impediment Moon-Wave Barrier): Gibbous Barricade is a Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spell which involves the caster forming a defensive shield of moonlight in order to protect themselves from all sorts of harm – given that the magic is mainly focused upon defensive capabilities, it goes without saying that Gibbous Barricade is more or less the most utilized spell in the caster's arsenal. In any case, when performing Gibbous Barricade, the caster focuses before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon; in the case of Gibbous Barricade, when scattered, in the air, the repulsive forces between the moonlight generated through this magic cause them to spontaneously align; which the user can form, with magical manipulation, into a regular cubic lattice structure; this is referred to as Gibbous Barricade, which will slowly expand and scatter into the area. When photon particles are spread in large numbers in the open air or in open space, the particles disrupt metal. The moonlight also interferes with the operations of magic items due to the moonlight particles high charge which act like a continuous electromagnetic pulse on metal objects. The disruption of metal is due to the small lattice of the spell creating fringes that long wavelengths cannot penetrate, and that diffract wavelengths that have similar distance with the fringes. This diffraction and polarization process disrupts the alloys. If controlled, the particles can form fringes of different widths and further interfere with alloys and machinery; forming a barely-visible barrier of silvery light around the user, completely protecting them from incoming attacks; it can be manipulated to take the form of all shapes and sizes, such as a full-body dome-like barrier, squares, rectangles, etc- they can also be compressed and fired like bullets at the enemy, giving off the visage of lasers. It should also be taken into consideration that caster is capable of modifying any property of this spell to their desires, meaning that it can possess any property imaginable as long as it is part of traits associated with the moon, though this also results in the Gibbous Barricade variants becoming successively multi-layered, and doing such a thing requires the caster to concentrate more when making the Gibbous Barricade spell manifest. Rather than traditional force-fields, the Gibbous Barricade behaves more like membranes and as such, they twist and tear when anything impacts upon it before the opposing attack slides off harmlessly like raindrops; negating everything that comes into contact with the Gibbous Barricade by reducing the energy of the eternano and kinetic forces of anything that the shield comes into contact with to its lowest point as to completely negate any level of threat that an opposing spell no matter its tier or power, the spell instantly dissipating upon reaching the moonlight released by Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic, fragmenting into innumerable particles and scattering to the winds harmlessly. Due to the membrane-like composition, anything that touches it will be slowed down to a crawl and it takes an extended period of time for it to break through, whether it be a weapon, the foe's body, or even opposing spells. Every single moonlight particle that makes up the Gibbous Barricade barrier vibrates magnificently at nearly ten million times a millisecond, meaning that even a High-Frequency Blade is said to be incapable of tearing through it. It can be cast on any part of the user's body, or even away from them in order to protect others, including under the foe's feet. Doing so will slow them to a crawl as they become stuck in the spell. These barriers can also hide the presence of the things it coats or even make the target invisible, and the barrier does not function only on a sole individual, rather by using the user of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic as a base, the barrier effect extends around the vicinity. The range of Gibbous Barricade is dependent upon the reach of the magic produced by the caster and any enemies within that range will suffer an alteration that weakens the power of their magics. However, because the barrier is created through magical energies, a weak point is created as Gibbous Barricade's defensive power is reduced the further one gets from the caster. But even though this effect decays over distance, even at the very edge of its range it will not completely disappear, so from a tactical standpoint it is possible to safely position auxiliary support. Gibbous Barricade protects the caster and their allies from any evil; serving as an absolute defense spell which can even defend against time by acting as a stasis chamber, a place in which time stops, thus everyone within the sphere is stuck in a frozen state in which they don't age.
- Extension: Crater Diffusion (
追加攻撃・月世界, Ekusutenshon: Kurētā Difuyūjon lit. Additional Attack: Lunar World): Extension: Crater Diffusion is the name of a Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spell, and as the prefix of "extension" would indicate, a variant of the Gibbous Barricade spell which is actually a successive step in its usage – Extension: Crater Diffusion is effectively turning the immense defensive power of Gibbous Barricade into an overwhelming offense which brings indiscriminate amounts of destruction to anything near the caster. In any case, once Gibbous Barricade has absorbed enough energies from any opposing attacks, the caster initiates the activation sequence of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic once more, focusing before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon; the barrier gathers and dissects the energies that splashed upon the spell as these energies are released in the form of numerous protrusions in all forms imaginable, such as spikes, blades, claws, cannon barrels from which blasts are launched, halberds/tridents, whips, wings, and much, much more; all objects created extend outwards in a similar manner to that of tree branches from the Gibbous Barricade. Generating these objects does not require any form of advanced magical energy manipulation such as Shape Transformation, and the caster is capable of manipulating the structure in any way that they deem it suitable through mental commands alone, keeping the opponent on their toes as a multitude of armaments and shapes erupt from the barrier separating the caster and the enemy, striking away at their unprepared bodies without any traces of remorse; all armaments and attacking methods formed upon the Gibbous Barricade are phantom-esque in composition, constantly glowing with no real solid form, appearing almost ghostly in appearance albeit obviously composed of moonlight. Not only this, significantly bolstering such a peculiar form of offense, the various protrusions and quasi-weaponry generated upon any form of the Gibbous Barricade is able to enhance its ability by imbuing numerous properties of the "aspects" infused within the bog-standard defensive forms of the spell, such as time slowing properties and dispersion ability of the first and second layers, adding yet another degree of complexity to the announcement of Extension: Crater Diffusion, as they can be integrated into each and any form of striking manifested upon the Gibbous Barricade before them, granting the user the ability to attack in almost any way imaginable while the opponent must constantly stay on their toes, as no two attacks with Extension: Crater Diffusion are identical, meaning that each and every strike dealt with these wicked protrusions is something completely new and as such, the enemy has no way of properly dealing with it the first time around.
- Extension: Sanctuary Guard (
追加攻撃・光護封剣, Ekusutenshon: Sankuchuari Gādo lit. Additional Attack: Sankuchuari Gādo lit. Lunar Dragon's Protective Sealing Swords of Light): Extension: Sanctuary Guard is the name of a Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spell, and as the prefix of "extension" would indicate, a variant of the Gibbous Barricade spell which enables the caster to manifest a serial of silver swords of moonlight arranged in a hexagonal formation that constantly spew more moonlight for a few moments; this moonlight generates a forcefield around the caster and allies while hindering the opponent's movements. In any case, when performing Extension: Sanctuary Guard, the caster focuses intently before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon; from here, the caster gathers moonlight within their hands, before touching the ground—this sends the moonlight into the ground, as it tracks the user and their allies down and forms circles of moonlight beneath their feet momentarily; after locking onto their target, the user snaps their fingers, causing the moonlight beneath the ground to erupt in an enormous veil of silver that reaches the sky; constricting and whirling around the user. This veil of moonlight is nigh-impenetrable, protecting them from incoming magical attacks letting only a fraction of the magical force behind them pass through to strike their body; at which point the attack is immediately nullified- the energies gathered, and then focused into the next step. Unlike the standard Gibbous Barrier, this spell is not a perfect defense, as it can be worn down by repeated blows, or can be broken by a spell as a prelude to an attack. In addition, some people are capable of breaking or bypassing barriers altogether. However, this barrier's defensive properties have no effect against solid objects like swords and projectiles, and magic can still be used at point blank range within the barrier's boundary; very little is known about the limits of its defensive power, though it possesses a rather immense duration and durability, functioning as a shell of sorts, with the intensity of the moonlight emitted by the Extension: Sanctuary Guard having the psychological effect of causing enemies to hesitate to attack them. When used against an opponent, this spell reveals itself to be capable of slowing the user's opponent down and make it difficult to inflict damage or even to attack. Just utilizing Extension: Sanctuary Guard is not a way to win by itself; it is usually used as a means to an end; and due to their several other healing spells and offensive attacks, the user will definitely benefit from this strategy; being able to protect themselves from both attacks and damage. The power of Extension: Sanctuary Guard can stop attacks for a few minutes, to locking their opponent down as long as they are on the field—however, it takes a fair while to regain the magical energy drained from this spell, and the user could possibly only utilize it four-five times before they had exhausted themselves from their magical power.
- Extension: Crater Diffusion (
- Celestial Salvation (
月竜の全治波浪, Seresutiaru Sarubēshon lit. Lunar Dragon's Surging Complete Recovery): Celestial Salvation is the very first supplementary Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spell; it's effectively a glyph of moonlight that shrouds the user and/or their targets, healing them while bolstering their parameters significantly. When performing Celestial Salvation, the caster focuses before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon; while this is happening, the caster focuses their mind, searching for the calm within the storm known as 'battle' as they tap into the properties of moon, which displays the symbolism of the moon as a source of healing before they project their moonlight downwards into the form of a Magic Seal that resembles a small silver circular glyph of lunar energy with a glowing emerald leaf in the center; this glyph of moonlight manifests appears underneath the targeted character, whether they be allies or the caster themselves; after transfixing upon a solid surface, the moonlight that surges upwards as a byproduct of the crest's manifestation resonates with the azurite textures of the skies, causing moonlight to flow down from the heavens, connecting heaven and earth and appearing as a thin wall of shining energies – this moonlight possesses a soothing effect that can be considered akin to life energy; but anyone within the Magic Seal has moonlight flow into their open wounds while surrounding their bodies, and spheres of moonlight rise up, purifying all allies while purging their existences of all injuries, excluding those that are away from the glyph by completely restoring their magical energy and stamina and curing them of any status ailments before finally granting them a stat boost. Unlike other area-based healing spells, where the area of effect is determined once the spell incantation is complete, Celestial Salvation's area of effect follows the character it is cast upon. This allows it to be used in situations where the target may be moving; however, the amount of health recovered and its initial area of effect are extremely small, requiring characters to be practically touching for it to take effect; however, it can expand exponentially. While allies are being cured and boosted, the circle also flashes with moonlight of the element of moonlight, damaging every single enemy on the field, unless said enemy is unaffected by light magic. It can be used to recover a substantial amount of magical energy and health for themselves at minimal cost and time. In addition, it also boosts their defensive power. It grants a tremendous boost in power all around the board; the targets receive an enormous augmentation; enough to buff them up to at least SS-Class level magicians, who are capable of throwing down with the best of them; aside from bolstering their speed, increases the chances of landing a critical hit. It also enhances their offensive power for a certain period of time. It triples the next physical attack's strength. Multi-hit attacks only increase the power of the first strike. If an attack is physical but relies on a set factor, it still increases in power; increasing their physical and magical defenses by halving all damage done to them, including offensive and curative spells, as well as physical attacks, including attacks unleashed armed, and those unarmed. The effect can stack, but repeated use on the same character increases the chance that the Celestial Salvation spell misses. Slightly affected by the current state of the world, clear conditions restore a quarter as much as a regular casting of the spell, sunny conditions restore half, and other conditions restore an eighth of a target's magical energy and stamina – however, at night and with contact with a full moon, Celestial Salvation restores the target's physical and magical parameters by twice as much due to the power of the moon being out in the open to influence the caster's targets healing processes. Once upgraded enough, it becomes one of the user's most useful spells; it is one of the most effective but costly ways to revive their allies. This is one of the most effective healing spells to exist, but because of this, the casting time and amount of magical energy used to utilize it are very high to prevent its constant use. It should be noted that Celestial Salvation restores magical energy and vitality to the user equivalent to half of their own magical power, making it an extremely useful and potent healing spell.
- Stardust Mirage (
月竜の交迷幻夢, Sutādasuto Mirāju lit. Lunar Dragon's Shifting Phantasm): Stardust Mirage is a supplementary Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spell which enables the caster to make illusionary duplicates of themselves. When performing Stardust Mirage, the caster focuses before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon, resulting in the caster manifesting an intense moonlight in a singular burst that covers the immediate vicinity for the smallest of moment- the sheer amount of moonlight unleashed causes a shift in the atmosphere, causing illusions all around. When the moonlight settles in a matter of seconds, anyone in the area will see two or more doubles of the caster- this is because Stardust Mirage is an all-around illusion-casting spell that affects the area around the user, blurring the light in the area so that everyone will see double. Generally, the illusions manifested by Stardust Mirage are completely indistinguishable from the real thing to the naked eye and simple sensory-type magic, though those who have dealt with illusionists before can distinguish the two. While it is possible to manifest more than simple copies of the user and perhaps their allies, it is the easiest to perform. The user can also use Stardust Mirage in conjunction with their spells and attacks, allowing them to mix up the fake with the real, allowing them to hold up enemies and create greater opportunities to launch their own attacks, causing feints of a sort to distract the opponent from the real deal. The user is capable of infusing the illusions with more of their magical energy, they can control them mentally- though they are required to stand still and direct them so that they won't lose focus. The realized illusions manifested through Stardust Mirage are capable of performing any of the user's spells, including Stardust Mirage once more in order to double the amount of copies that the user's has summoned in the heat of battle- however, by doing so, the clones drain magical energy from the user's own Magic Origin. To add to the deception pulled over the eyes of their enemies, these duplicates can bleed after being struck- though they will scatter into moonlight if attacked by a sufficiently strong force; but before they do that, the user can disperse them by will alone in order to gain back any of their magical power that they had used in their brief moments of 'life'; generally, they're so lifelike that it's near impossible to distinguish the clones of a user of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic from the real deal, and upon contact with the opponent, the illusions explode in a burst of moonlight. Stardust Mirage requires a considerable amount of mental focus in order to continue stabilizing the illusions, even moreso per fake manifested, making it extremely difficult to sustain for longer than a few seconds per spell cast, though it does not cost much magical energy.

Third-Generation Dragon Power Amplification: Full Moon Madness Shift): Drive is a uncategorized Dragon Slayer Magic spell and a type of Magic-amplification technique used by wielders of Third Generation Dragon Slayer Magic and is exclusive to them in most cases; Drive brings out the true power of the caster's capabilities as a user of Dragon Slayer Magic, excluding the power boost granted by Dragon Force, yet, at the same time, seemingly enhancing the user's physical prowess to a rather extreme degree, particularly the user's speed. The iteration of Drive that comes automatically equipped within Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic is known as Lunacy Drive, which taps into the full power of the moonlight by inducing a replication of the folk belief in the moon as a cause of periodic insanity in order to empower the user, resulting in a dramatic increase in powers all across the board, but transforms them into what is essentially a rampaging beast in battle. Because of the phenomenal power of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic in no small part due to its origins as a Water Dragon Slayer Magic that evolved through interaction with Photon Dragon Slayer Magic in its current form, Berserk Light Dragon Indra is able to access Lunacy Drive in spite of the fact that she isn't a wielder of Third-Generation Dragon Slayer Magic but rather, a walking dynamo of raw power. In any case, when invoking the power of Drive, as the name would ever-so-subtly indicate, the caster invokes a specific mechanism of the Ryū no Lacrima ( 竜の魔水晶, Ryū no Rakurima lit. Magic Crystal of Dragons) which has been infused within their frame; the Ryū no Lacrima is a rare and extremely expensive Lacrima; a magic crystalline substance found in both Earth Land and Edolas; this Ryū no Lacrima gives individuals artificial Dragon Slayer Magic when implanted into their body - which, when combined with the teachings of a Dragon, enables Third-Generation Dragon Slayer Magic. With a single mental command, the wielder of Dragon Slayer Magic forces the draconic arcane crystal within their body to distribute magical energy that has traces of draconic power that was previously stored within the crystalline orb at a velocity that's much quicker than usual, accelerating the output and flow of magical energy from the Lacrima to the user's body, evenly spreading it throughout their body while a continuous release rapidly magnifies the quantities of energy dispersed, reaching the user's arms, legs, torso, head, and neck in order to dramatically enhance all of their physical fortes - all the while, the caster focuses the energies that are dwelling within their frame intently, as they begin to surge the arcane powers within themselves outwards ever-so-slightly while inducing the activation sequence of their particular form of Dragon Slayer Magic, which in the case of Lunacy Drive, involves the caster harnessing their willpower as a perfect catalyst, entwined eternano and magic power being transmogrified into protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon, as their solar energy becomes infused with their bloodstream before reaching their brain, resonating with adrenaline they are experiencing during combat, entering a state of enhanced awareness and peak physical ability as a shroud of moonlight cloaks around them before completely transforming them into moonlight in a manner not dissimilar to the Elemental Body ability of Elemental Magic, which allows the user to let physical and magical attacks pass harmlessly through their body when they're transformed. The moonlight has the side-effect of inducing the lunar effect, which refers to correlations between specific stages of the roughly twenty-nine point five day lunar cycle and behaviour in humans or other living things – not only this, the moon has long been associated with insanity and irrationality; the words lunacy and lunatic are derived from the Latin name for the Moon, Luna. Philosophers Aristotle and Pliny the Elder argued that the full moon induced insanity in susceptible individuals, believing that the brain, which is mostly water, must be affected by the Moon and its power over the tides, but the Moon's gravity is too slight to affect any single person; but in this case, Lunacy Drive effectively causes them to undergo a physical transformation, with glowing eyes, manic hair, and bared fangs. The power of Drive increases the strength, speed, and potential that the user possesses tenfold, allowing them to take on even foes much more powerful than themselves as the user demonstrates heightened reflexes and extremely quick information processing, and it amplifies the powers of their Dragon Slayer Magic without exhausting themselves. This state grants the user the ability to perform new spells; as well as making their pre-existing spells far more powerful, with various users only employing several skills only while in Drive. The Drive spell harnesses "the power that kills Dragons"; at least according to the words of the first users, the Twin Dragons of Sabertooth; some loser and a slightly smaller loser, both members of a whole group of losers whom are actually noted to be hilariously pathetic compared to their First-Generation counterparts or any other Dragon Slayer in general, even children. However, in the hands of an actually capable Dragon Slayer, the Drive spell would be capable of allowing the user to dish out some serious damage. In the case of Lunacy Drive, as a result of its activation, the increased adrenaline, as mentioned above, in turn reacts with their own body and magical energy, increasing the strength, speed, and potential they possess tenfold, allowing them to take on even foes much more powerful than themselves; entering a state of enhanced awareness and peak physical ability; essentially, it causes the user to become cloaked in intense moonlight, allowing the user to better employ their Dragon Slayer Magic whilst at the same time massively enhancing their physical prowess to a degree; Lunacy Drive has a notable amount of startup invincibility, so if their opponent is attacking the user while they are activating the skill, the user will be capable of counterattacking immediately as to turn the tides instantly. As a result of Lunacy Drive, the user's base power level, strength, speed, and senses greatly increase; tripling their already impressive power, allowing for a massive boost all across the board. Additionally, the user demonstrates the ability to heighten the effect of this spell to increasingly higher multiplications, and what is interesting to note is that Lunacy Drive enhances all of the user's moves, greatly increasing their area-of-effect as well as improving their damage, also granting the wielder of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic the ability to charge up extra energy to increase the power of their strikes through a compression of moonlight. However, as mentioned above, this comes at the cost of their mind reverting into a primal state prone to violence and survival instinct. When under the effects of Lunacy Drive, each and every one of the caster's attacks produce a serial of shockwaves that radiate outwards from the epicenter of the strike's impact, also leaving a searing wake of moonlight that cuts through the ground in the wake of their blows. Additionally, with Lunacy Drive active, the user's bones and muscles become denser and harder than normal, to the highest human potential, which makes them very durable compared to a normal human. They are durable enough to the point that if a person beats them with a thick metal iron, the stick would eventually break and the user would show little discomfort. This level of durability is how they can survive things such as falls from several stories with no discomfort. In fact, the user's body is highly resistant to physical injury, capable of withstanding assault from high-caliber bullets as well as attacks from super powered individuals; they are capable of absorbing bullets from small-arms weapons firing conventional ammunition, effectively making them immune to flinching, allowing the user of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic to continue an almost never-ending assault until the spell ends and they return to normal. However, just like all iterations of Drive, the uprise of magical energy that results from the power of Lunacy Drive could easily obliterate the user or severely damage their body, if harnessed for too long.
- Extension: Tsukuyomi (
追加攻撃・月読, Ekusutenshon: Tsukuyomi lit. Additional Attack: Moon Reader): Extension: Tsukuyomi is a supplementary ability of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic that activates upon ignition of Lunacy Drive which bestows upon the caster a sixth sense of sorts in order to follow the flow of eternano in the environment and simulate a three-hundred-and-sixty-degree view along with a form of clairvoyance. In any case, when performing Extension: Tsukuyomi, the caster focuses before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon, channeling these intense amounts of moonlight into their eyes, resulting in the caster synthesize a sensory-derived three-dimensional three hundred and sixty degree sight, helping their notice everything within two-thousand kilometers; "visually", this causes the caster to "see" everything through a radar of sorts; with Extension: Tsukuyomi, while most things the caster "sees" harnessing the spell are somewhat blurry and appear in numerous shades of silver and blue, it still enables the caster to sense the compositions, formations, and locations of everything within their vicinity, rendering the user capable of noticing everything that's worth noticing, and the ability allows the caster to perceive at an infinitely greater level than she would with just normal sight. With Extension: Tsukuyomi, the caster is capable of visualizing where others are no matter their location and how far away they are from them in exact statistics as long as they are in this ability's area-of-effect, what their appearance is right down to their height, weight, and build. This spell also enables the caster to anticipate the opponent's next movements and react accordingly by narrowing the amount of pathways that the caster is capable of feeling with their regular eyesight down to a select few instead of all-around her frame – particularly, the select few pathways of eternano that the caster focuses on are mainly in correspondence to their foe, with their perception of these few channels of arcane particles effectively forging a link between the pathways surrounding their opponent and the ones surrounding the caster in their own mind, linking the concentrations of eternano ever-so-subtly to the point that it would seem as if the two combatants are constantly enveloped in large bands of magical particles no matter any movements that they make. With this set up, whenever the opponent makes an action that could indeed be quite harmful, Extension: Tsukuyomi alerts the caster of any potential danger that could be inflicted upon themselves by the enemy's attack, causing a tingling sensation to ring in the back of their mind, causing a temporary link to be forged between the moonlight and the surroundings, resulting in the caster's body producing significantly more adrenaline than normal after they become aware of the danger that Extension: Tsukuyomi alerts them of, enabling them to display a quick burst of speed and reflexes beyond what they're normally capable of in order to evade the oncoming strike – though it should also be taken into consideration that the caster is incapable of judging the nature of threat posed by the upcoming attack poses to themselves, and thus, they could overreact to something that could be as pitiful as a non-augmented sword slash aimed at their body; but they can realize how powerful the attack would be if it connected with their body judging by their own response to it; but when taken too far, such as a power that could annihilate a city ahead of anyone being able to stop it, the Extension: Tsukuyomi will surge a painful intensity through their mind which has a fifty percent chance of momentarily paralyzing the caster or letting them bail out of the way as normal.
- Extension: Tsukuyomi (
- Lunar Eclipse (月食, Gesshoku): Lunar Eclipse is a Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spell which enables the caster to simulate the effects of a lunar eclipse in order to turn invisible. In any case, when performing Lunar Eclipse, the caster focuses before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon; from here, the caster intensifies the moonlight to the point that it surrounds their existence momentarily, causing direct sunlight being completely blocked by the earth's shadow; the only light seen is refracted through the earth's shadow, turning their moonlight into a crimson texture that appears red for the same reason that the sunset looks red, due to rayleigh scattering of the more blue light; referred to as a blood moon with the reddish texture coming into being because sunlight reaching the Moon must pass through a long and dense layer of the Earth's atmosphere, where it is scattered. These crimson light rays are then directed in accordance to the caster's thoughts, refracting them to cause all wavelengths of visible, infrared, and ultraviolet light to bend around themselves without distortion in order to erase themselves from others' line of sight- camouflaging into their surroundings and becoming invisible. This also somehow directs enough undistorted light to the caster's eyes to retain her full range of vision while invisible. An observer, unaware of the peculiar path light takes around their body, would not have the sensation of seeing through the caster, and the caster can also mentally project the invisibility granted by bending the light in order to render other people or objects invisible. The largest volume they can turn invisible at a single time is approximately one thousand, one hundred and thirty-three cubic meters, equivalent to a small swimming pool; and the caster has displayed the ability to turn parts of their body selectively invisible. Of course, they're also able to make objects and people that have been turned invisible by other sources visible by letting Lunar Eclipse interfere with that other method of invisibility, making it near impossible for the caster to be fooled by other invisibility-inducing magic as they can also sense something which has been made invisible, whether it be through supernatural power or through science. Perfect for stealth, Lunar Eclipse enables the user of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic to sneak around undetected and vanish into thin air in the blink of an eye.
Dragon Slayer's Secret Art (滅竜奥義, Metsu Ryū Ōgi): The strongest techniques of a Dragon Slayer. Given the prefix Gekka (
- Gekka: Hagetsujin (
月華・破月陣, Gekka: Hagetsujin lit. Moonflower: Tearing Moon Array): Gekka: Hagetsujin is the predominant Dragon Slayer's Secret Art of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic, which are the strongest techniques of a Dragon Slayer; it is a a spell best suited to terrible destruction in a similar manner to Crimson Lotus: Exploding Flame Blade, serving as an attack where the caster swipes their arms in a circular fashion, creating a powerful, and highly destructive, torrent of moonlight that barrage their target. When performing Gekka: Hagetsujin, the caster focuses their energies intently, before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon, all focused around their hands, before expanding them into long torrents of moonlight. Once this is done, the user swings their arms around in the target, launching a powerful two-streamed blast of moonlight which hits many times. The cool torrents of moonlight expand vertically as they move away from the user; opponents that come in contact with the vortex as it moves forward are knocked slightly to the side, and are thus forced to travel with it. Opponents that are in the center of the vortex are more easily trapped by it. The user recoils slightly when they perform the attack, but they are unaffected by gravity until the move ends, so it is mostly insignificant. The move is capable of hitting about eight times a second, although this is unlikely due to the speed the streams spin at and the knockback delivered, with each connecting strike generating a powerful piercing effect that shreds the opponent while rending all opposing defenses in twain, with an even larger slicing effect that causes an explosion ending the barrage- the blast radius of the final explosion looks like a huge sphere of negative space fifteen hundred feet across, with neat slices taken out of surrounding buildings, pavement, cars, hillsides, et cetera; there appears to have been no actual heat, let alone shockwaves, emanating from the explosion at all - the only result is that a massive spherical section of the area appears to be missing. Despite being a powerful attack, it has one major flaw: if the opponents are far away from the user, they can avoid the attack by jumping over it. However, it makes it up by inflicting damage on a wide range of multiple enemies and pushing them back quite some distance without allowing recovery, possibly even dragging opponents off the side. Along with its astounding destructive power, the attack has a delayed effect if the initial blast should fail, wherein the target will be blasted by residual effects left over by the volley of moonlight; absolutely obliterating the opponent.
- Gekka: Matsuyoi Eiyogaeshi (
月華・待宵永夜返し, Gekka: Matsuyoi Eiyogaeshi lit. Moonflower: Waiting Evening, Return of the Imperishable Night): Gekka: Matsuyoi Eiyogaeshi is a Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic spell and one of the Dragon Slayer's Secret Arts, which are, obviously, the strongest spells of a Dragon Slayer – Gekka: Matsuyoi Eiyogaeshi is an attack that allows the caster to prepare for an incoming attack while gathering moonlight before vanishing upon impact and reappearing behind the enemy, striking with a powerful serial of unblockable blows. In any case, when performing Gekka: Matsuyoi Eiyogaeshi, the caster focuses their energies intently, before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon, resulting in the caster manifesting a mass of moonlight which shrouds their entire body. Performing a defensive tai chi-like stance in a split second, the caster waits for the impact of their opponent's attack. Upon the contact of the enemy's strike with the caster's body, the light which engulfed their frame begins to go to work by reducing their body to elementary particles, transforming into and moving at the speed of light behind the enemy as they are instantaneously reassembled in said location, literally teleporting. At this point, the caster, now behind their opponent, strikes with a powerful a flurry of attacks that consist of multiple punches and kick combos, finishing strong diving kick downwards that launches the foe downwards, dealing high knockback. When compared to most other counter-type spells, Gekka: Matsuyoi Eiyogaeshi has the longest window of retaliating, being a few seconds in length, and the return strike comes out the swiftest due to the caster transforming into moonlight, teleporting behind the enemy, and striking. When compared to other forms of counterattacking spells, Gekka: Matsuyoi Eiyogaeshi is notably different in that it does not change power depending on the countered attack; rather, it does a constant attack no matter what moves it counters. One of the most interesting features of Gekka: Matsuyoi Eiyogaeshi is that when in the process of evading and teleporting behind the enemy, as the caster has transformed their entire body into moonlight, they are effectively intangible and leaves them unaffected even by attacks that cannot be countered. Additionally, if the caster is hit during the process of Gekka: Matsuyoi Eiyogaeshi, like other forms of counterattacking spells, they will not flinch and simply complete the process- though they will still receive damage; the caster actually strikes the location around where they was hit, just like regular forms of Counter do. If Gekka: Matsuyoi Eiyogaeshi is used on a ranged attack or an attack that causes its user to move quickly, the caster will most likely miss with their counter attack, meaning that timing is absolutely crucial.
- Gekka Kai: Justice Phorizor (
荒れ光竜・太極端・天一神の金剛矢, Gekka Kai: Jasutisu Foraizā lit. Berserk Light Dragon's Supreme Ultimate Extremity: The Thunderbolt Arrow of Heaven's Sole Spirit): Gekka Kai: Justice Phorizor is the strongest spell of Lunar Dragon Slayer Magic, and the greatest of its Dragon Slayer's Secret Arts- it is a large and fast-moving thunderbolt arrow of moonlight which shoots forth after being formed via the compression of four different rays of moonlight. In any case, when performing Gekka Kai: Justice Phorizor, the user activates the spell by focusing their energies intently, before utilizing their magical energy in order to manifest and alter the eternano which is saturated throughout the atmosphere by inducing the usual fusion between the energies dwelling within their body with the ambient supernatural particles; this results in both components of the activation phase becoming entwined and their existence is transmogrified into that of protons which the user can then alter the movement of them, taking it one step further in order to simulate the effect reflecting and absorbing the light of the moon either second-hand or manually, producing moonlight, which is a silver light that reaches the planet from the moon, as the user molds this mass of moonlight into a quartet of Magic Seals, all compressed into the form of a quartet of crystals that are arranged in a squared formation and orbit around the caster. As they circle around; the crystals of moonlight gather magical energy to fuel the attack, condensing stray energy onto them, filling them as if they were Lacrima while the caster continuously adds their own power to the mix; these silver crystals are situated in each of the four directions- north, south, east, and west; these Magic Seals flank the caster's sides; all of them continuously compressing energies in the vicinity while the user's magical energy does its business of turning the energies gathered into moonlight which are absorbed, even transmuting other sources such as the ground, the skies, and bodies of water into moonlight in order to enhance the sheer power and scope of the full blast. Once the charging period has been finished, the caster points in the direction of their target, and each Magic Seal unleashes a blast of moonlight which converge into a single silver jagged arrow of never-ending moonlight that shoots forth in the blink of an eye; the arrow of moonlight mows through the surface of the Earth while in motion, and even if it is evaded, those close to the attack upon impact can be damaged by the sheer magical energy output of the blast; for every waking second that the silver arrow is manifested, it releases a large amount of light which has the capability to destroy the foe's body outright, erupting outwards and "purifying the very soul", conceptualized for the simple purpose of absolute destruction. Upon impact, the arrow causes a large explosion of pure radiance with enough momentum to breach defenses; making it extremely powerful, ripping into the ground and incinerating an entire squadron of Rune Knights, scorching the very foundation of the earth, leaving naught but molten asphalt and burning away everything in sight, such as forests and rocks as it splits the skies- against those of demon-kind, Justice Phorizor incinerates the flesh and very existence of them; once fired, the caster is capable of taking any other action, including movement, as normal without any drawbacks; it is said to represent the rays of heat from the sun; a supernova, to be exact. This attack is a reference to the fact that in mythology, Indra wields a lightning thunderbolt.
