The Divine Axe Rhitta神斧 リッタ Jinpu Ritta」 is a sacred treasure in the possession of the Lion's Sin of Pride, Escanor.

Appearance

Rhitta is giant ornamental axe with a blade shaped like a crescent moon, similar to that of a Monk's spade. Its design specs and distribution of weight are (likely intentionally) off: most of the weight is concentrated in the head, leaving it off balance, and even more difficult to wield than its impressive weight would already make it.

Abilities

Charge & Fire充填 (チャージ) 放射 (ファイア)  Jūten & Hōsha (Chāji & Faia); literally meaning "Fill & Emit"」: Rhitta's specialty is to completely absorb and store the enormous amount of heat Escanor radiates from his body during the day. This allows him to release the heat on command and with precision instead of simply burning away everything in his vicinity.[1]

By saying the command "Sacred Treasure Release"神器解放 (じんぎかいほう)  Jingi Kaihō」, Escanor can release all the power he has stored in Rhitta in an instant. The release is accompanied by an incredible wave of light and heat, illuminating the night sky, causing onlookers to mistake it for the sun itself. He can call it to himself at will, and it will travel at incredible speeds through the sky to reach him.[2]

Trivia

  • Rhitta is the third Sacred Treasure to be shown in a flashback.
  • Rhitta is named after a young maiden loved by the sun.  
  • Despite its large size and the weight of its head, Rhitta is a one-handed weapon.
