"Power... it draws its source from one's strong will, belief and experience."
— Dreyfus in First Casualty

Nanatsu Legend 2

Holy Knights using Powers

This page includes a list of all the powers that have appeared in the series, Nanatsu no Taizai.

BackgroundEdit

Powers魔力 Maryoku; literally meaning "magic power"」 are mysterious abilities invoked through unknown means.[1][2] The source of an individual's power is stated to be drawn from one's will, beliefs and experience.[3] Though the catalyst to awaken one's power is unknown;[4] power resides within the body itself.[5] This is supported by the Holy Knight's belief that their bodies are imbued with "magic that transcends human knowledge."[6]

A power weakens and grows unstable if the user loses control of their emotions,[7] though this may be remedied through training.[8] A power can also be gained and utilized from sources of power by research and experimentation.

The Holy Knights of different kingdoms: Liones, Danafor (formerly), Edinburgh (formerly), and Camelot, etc., use their magical abilities to protect their people and lands from various threats in Britannia.

DescriptionEdit

These abilities can be categorized into offensive, defensive and support skills in battle. These powers grant users various advantages and benefits when engaged in combat, however, there are drawbacks for using them. For example, Full Counter's inability to reflect indirect or normal attacks; Ruin's ability requires a unique staff's bell to make it work; Wall's instability when the user lose control of their emotions; and Invasion's requirement of a long-range distance.

Some of these abilities are known as enchantments.

Powers can be sensed through the exertion of the individuals' auras and those who felt it have different reactions towards such power.

These abilities can be measured by Balor's Power Eye by Power, Strength, and Spirit in numerical value that determines one's overall Power Level.
