Dark Magic 「闇魔法 Yami Mahō」 is a rare magic attribute that allows the user to generate and manipulate darkness.[1]


This magic attribute allows the user to generate and manipulate darkness at will.[1] The user is able to use this magic without the need of a grimoire. However, in order to use it to its full potential, specific spells are required, which are stored within grimoires.

Dark Magic has been described as the polar opposite of Light Magic, and one of the fundamental properties of this magic is that it has low speed.[2] To combat this disadvantage, certain mages utilize Reinforcement Magic to channel Dark Magic through a weapon and increase their physical attributes.[1] Another trait of Dark Magic is its minor gravitational effect, drawing in and absorbing other magic,[3] as well as pulling in and immobilizing people.[4][5] Dark Magic also has a strong compatibility with Shadow Magic, as the two magic attributes together can be used to continuously synergize and strengthen each other.[6]

Since the power of the underworld is said to dwell in Dark Magic,[7] it is one of the magic attributes necessary for growing the Tree of Qliphoth.[8] Because of this underworld influence, it is an Arcane Stage magic and so is effective against devils and their magic and cannot be manipulated by Kotodama Magic.[9]
