Lina Inverse using the Ragna Blade

Ragna Blade (Japanese: 神滅斬ラグナ・ブレード, Kanji translation: God-Destroying Slash, Romaji: raguna burēdo, also known as Laguna Blade) is a spell that calls upon the power of the Lord of Nightmares. It is neither a black magic, nor a holy magic spell, as the Lord of Nightmares herself isn't shinzoku or mazoku.

The spells calls forth crackling black energy which roughly takes the form of a sword in the caster's hands. Because of this it can only be used in close combat.

Only surpassed in power by the Giga Slave, the Ragna Blade's destructive force is enormous. Its effect extends to the Astral Plane, and no being, not even the Sword of Light or a ma-ō, can deflect it, although the stronger mazoku have astral bodies too big to be destroyed by a single swipe. It puts a likewise huge strain on the caster as well; it requires great bucket capacity to be cast (hence it requires amplification for a human caster), and the mere act of keeping the spell active drains the caster's strength tremendously.

It isn't known when and where Lina Inverse, the only known caster of this spell, gained knowledge of the Ragna Blade, but it can be assumed that it isn't her original creation, as she mentions it as "the spell I read about".

In the anime, Lina learns of the spell when she comes across a Claire Bible manuscript (Episodes 10 and 11 in Slayers NEXT). However, she does not learn to fully control the spell until after learning the true nature of the Lord of Nightmares from the original Claire Bible.

IncantationEdit

Incomplete versionEdit

Lina first used a version of the spell with the knowledge she already had.

天空のいましめ解き放たれし
凍れる黒き虚無の刃よ
我が力 我が身となりて
共に滅びの道を歩まん
神々の魂すらも打ち砕き

Sora no imashime tokihanatareshi
kooreru kuroki utsuro no yaiba yo
Waga chikara waga mi to narite
tomo ni horobi no michi o ayuman
Kamigami no tamashii sura mo uchikudaki

Lord of the Dreams that Terrify,
Sword of Cold and Darkness, free yourself from the heaven´s bonds,
Become one with my power, one with my body
And let us walk the path of destruction together!
Power that can smash even the souls of Gods,
RAGNA BLADE!!

Complete versionEdit

Later, with the knowledge obtained from the Claire Bible, Lina alters the chant to create a completed and more powerful version of the spell.

悪夢の王の一片
世界のいましめ解き放たれし
凍れる黒き虚無の刃よ
我が力 我が身となりて
共に滅びの道を歩まん
神々の魂すらも打ち砕き

Akumu no ou no hitokake yo
Sora no imashime tokihanatareshi
kooreru kuroki utsuro no yaiba yo
Waga chikara waga mi to narite
tomo ni horobi no michi o ayuman
Kamigami no tamashii sura mo uchikudaki

O, a piece of the Lord of Nightmares,
Free thine self from heavens bonds, O blade from the cold, dark void,
Become one with my power, one with my body,
And let us walk this path of destruction together,
Shattering the souls of the Gods!
RAGNA BLADE!!

Fragment of the Lord of Nightmares,
Release thy heavenly retribution
Blade of cold, black nothingness
Become my power, become my body
Together, let us walk the path of destruction
And smash even the souls of the Gods
RAGNA BLADE!!
