Kamaitachi (鎌威断ち, Kamaitachi) is a powerful technique derived from Witch-Hunt.[1]


A powerful technique in which "whips" the Soul Wavelengths drawn into the Scythe Blade from the Witch-Hunt and flings them back to the originator. The drawback of this technique is that it's indiscriminate and hard to control, not only being not suited for team use but also cause disorientation upon completion.[1]


  • kamaitachi is spelled with the kanji that translates to "Scythe-Threat Cut," but it shares the name of the kamaitachi ("scythe-weasel," "demon weasel"), a mythological Japanese weasel-shaped monster with scythe-like claws.[2]
