The Spirit Spear Chastiefol霊槍シャスティフォル Reisō Shasutiforu」 is King's sacred treasure, and a holy weapon crafted from the Sacred Tree found only in the Fairy Realm.[1]

Appearance

Chastiefol has ten different forms[2], but frequently appears as a mottled, green pillow that King carries with him. During combat, it can transform into a long, broad spear with two out-turned lugs at the base of the head, that forms a guard similar to that of a boar spear. Each of it's forms also has a "true form" that King is able to unleash for even more power.

Abilities

It is much stronger than steel and has mysterious qualities of the Sacred Tree, which King's ability, Disaster, draws out.[3] It is capable of regenerating itself even after being split in two or in pieces.[4] Some of its different forms include:

Spirit Spear Chastiefol

  • Pillow: When not in battle, the spear remains in the form of a pillow.[5][6] The pillow can also act as a shield.[7]
  • Form One: Chastiefol第一形態: 霊槍 (シャスティフォル)  Daiichi Keitai: Reisō (Shasutiforu); literally meaning "Spirit Spear"」: King frequently utilizes this form, which is a long, broad spear, in conjunction with his levitation ability to perform basic ranged attacks. It acts as a homing-weapon, continuously following a dodging enemy and cornering them.[8]
    • Bumblebee飛び回る蜂 (バンブルビー)  Tobimawaru Hachi (Banburubī); literally meaning "Flying Bees"」: By controlling Chastiefol with his ability to levitate objects, King launches a multitude of attacks which rapidly swarm the enemy in all directions.[9]
  • Form Two: Guardian第二形態: 守護獣 (ガーディアン)  Daini Keitai: Shugojū (Gādian); literally meaning "Guardian Beast"」: Chastiefol takes on the form of a large, stuffed bear by shape-shifting the moss that grows along its body. While in this form the moss body will parry any physical attack,[10] but can also be directly controlled by King to fight or immobilize enemies with its four arms. Due to the high water concentration within the moss it is highly resistant to fire; however, because of this quality it bears a weakness against cold and freezing attacks.[10] Additionally, the form's soft, fluffy body allows it to resist blunt force attacks.[11]
  • Form Three: Fossilization第三形態: 化石化 (フォシライゼーション)  Daisan Keitai: Kaseki-ka (Foshiraizēshon)」: This form of Chastiefol is a twin headed spear with a spearhead shaped like the claws of a crab. This form has the ability to petrify an individual whom it pierces, rendering them unmovable and immobilized as a statue even if they are still alive.[12][13]
  • Form Four: Sunflower第四形態: 光華 (サンフラワー)  Daishi Keitai: Kōka (Sanfurawā); literally meaning "Light Flower"」: A gigantic shoot emerges from the earth, towering over enemies, as a flower bud blooms and shoots several projectiles that are capable of a great amount of destruction.[14]
  • Form Five: Increase第五形態: 増殖 (インクリース)  Daigo Keitai: Zōshoku (Inkurīsu)」: An army of small kunai-like spears are multiplied from one, their individual trajectories are controlled by King at will through simple motioning and gesturing of his hands.[15]
    • Fight Fire with Fire炸裂する刃雨 (ファイトファイア・ウィズファイア)  Sakuretsu Suru Yaiba Ame (Faito Faia Wizu Faia); literally meaning "Raining Explosive Blades"」: A subsidiary technique of Increase, it focuses all of the small blades that comprise Chastiefol into a single downwards strike against an opponent.[16]
  • Form Seven: Luminosity第七形態: 導苔 (ルミナシティ)  Dainana Keitai: Dōtai (Ruminashiti); literally meaning "Guiding Moss"」: Chastiefol transforms into a luminescent, ringed sphere that illuminates the surrounding area. It acts as a torch that allows the user to easily see in dark places.[17]
  • Form Eight: Pollen Garden第八形態: 花粒園 (パレン・ガーデン)  Daihachi Keitai: Karyūen (Paren Gāden)」: A large barrier is formed around a person and is capable of withstanding even the most powerful attacks. The barrier is made of pollen from the Sacred Tree which have the capabilities of slowly healing and subsides the pain immediately.[18]

Combined Techniques

  • Combined Technique: Cross Shooting合技 十字射撃 (クロスシューティング)  Gōgi "Jūji Shageki (Kurosu Shūtingu)"」: A combined attack, in which while Diane throws a rock barricade the opponent, King attacks piercing his body with Chastiefol. [19]


True Spirit Spear Chastiefol

The True Spirit Spear Chastiefol真・霊槍シャスティフォル Shin Reisō Shasutiforu」 is the complete form of Chastiefol achieved only when King draws out the true power of the Sacred Tree.[20] It is activated with the command "Sacred Treasure Release"神器解放 (じんぎかいほう)  Jingi Kaihō」, after which King's body is flooded with magic from the Sacred Tree.[21] The magical burden it puts on King is so great that his body cannot physically sustain the immense power and he is left exhausted and wounded.[21] Releasing Chastiefol is also shown to cause King's power level to momentarily double that of an Albion.[22]

  • Form One: Chastiefol第一形態: 霊槍 (シャスティフォル)  Daiichi Keitai: Reisō (Shasutiforu); literally meaning "Spirit Spear"」: The true first form of Chastiefol takes on the appearance of a great spear that dwarfs King in size.[23] King utilizes this form by launching the spear at his opponent; creating an enormous, cross-shaped explosion upon contact.[24]
  • Form Two: Guardian第二形態: 守護獣 (ガーディアン)  Daini Keitai: Shugojū (Gādian); literally meaning "Guardian Beast"」: In its true second form, Chastiefol appears as a muscular stuffed bear. Its strength and destructive capabilities are dramatically increased.[25]
  • Form Five: Increase第五形態: 増殖 (インクリース)  Daigo Keitai: Zōshoku (Inkurīsu)」: In its fifth form, Chastiefol appears as an army of large kunai-like spears.[26]
