Magic (魔法 mahō) is a great power connected to the Blue. This power spends mana (霊力(マナ), spirit power) originally present in nature which is formed by the user’s willpower.[1] Due to the rarity of people able to use mana, magic is scarcely seen or talked about. People who are able to use magic are called magicians (魔法使い mahōtsukai).

Before the Great Dark War, magic was taught in the Magic City of Ishana, but after the war the amount of magic users fell into a deep recline thanks to the dissolution of the Magic Association.

The Red Grimoire grants its user access to magic, even if they are unable to use mana.

Magic attacks cause scarring of the soul,[2] and they are not affected by Event Interferences. Even the healing magic (治癒魔法 chiyu mahō) very painfully heals these wounds. The healing magic can be used only by people that are able to control the flow of life, and it cannot heal wounds dealt by something outside of reason.

Magic exists outside of the reason, and since it works on mana, it can be used without the magic element.

Objects themselves possess varying affinity with magic, seemingly the older they get the greater that affinity becomes, to the point that they can greatly enhance the utilized spell. An example of that is Yūki Terumi’s cage made from old wood, which purpose was to strengthen the seals on the door and in the room.[3]

Magic circle (魔法陣 mahōjin) is a type of protective magic. While inside the circle, one will not be subject to physical impacts from the outside.[4] When mages draw it, they use special ancient characters (古代文字 kodaimonji). The owners of the Eye of the Hunter see the life-force values in the same font.

Currently known magicians are: The One, Two, Three, Four, Seven, Eight, Nine, Celica Ayatsuki Mercury, Kokonoe Mercury, Kazuma Kval, Trinity Glassfille, Clavis Alucard, Rachel Alucard and Raquel Alucard.

Known magic spells are Infinite Corridor, Gravity Seed, Infinite Gravity and Mind Eater. Jūbei hints in BlazBlue: Phase 0 that the skill of a magician can be gauged by their casting time.


  • In the English localization, magic was once called “sorcery”, in Teach Me, Ms. Litchi Reloaded. In all other cases both magic and sorcery are called “magic”. However, magic is appeared in XBlaze - Lost: Memories, as demonstrated by Nine (who was once as the younger "Me") in front of Nobody. XBlaze - Code: Embryo is the exception, which uses the power of Blue rather than ordinary magic.
