Kotodama Magic 「言霊魔法 Kotodama Mahō」 is a magic attribute that allows the user to manipulate their surroundings through speech.[1]


This magic attribute allows the user to manipulate their surroundings through speech. 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.[2]

The user can manifest almost any phenomenon they desire by speaking the proper command. The user can create and control a wide variety of objects, both magical and physical;[3] as well as generate various elements.[4] The user can also use speech to heal injuries, and even control other people and their magic.[5][6]

While the exact limits are not currently known, this magic cannot directly command a non-plant living being to die, and the amount of magic power used affects the range and the degree to which it can counter another spell. This magic cannot block Dark Magic even though it can affect other magical attributes.[7]


  • Kotodama is a Japanese belief that words and names have a mystical power.
