A Kishin Egg (also Afreet Egg) is a soul type which an evil individual gains from acts of evil and runs the risk of becoming a Kishin.[1]

The Kishin Egg replaced the Shinigami's List concept and is exclusive to the anime of Soul Eater and its affiliated video games, Soul Eater: Monotone Princess, Soul Eater: Battle Resonance, and Soul Eater: Medusa's Conspiracy.


Individuals who become Kishin eggs enter the first stage of becoming a Kishin. Due to their crimes, their souls becomes corrupt. The soul appears to be a dark hue red, the tail appearing to be a much more light and brighter red color. The middle of the soul is purple and surrounded by hexagonal plates.[1] However, undergoing through the process makes one lose their sanity and even humanity.[2]

Although it's been stated by Death it that only demon weapons can consume souls such as Kishin eggs,[3], it appears that any individual are capable of eating souls and transform into a Kishin Eggs such as Al Capone and his gang.[4]

Demon Weapons wishing to become a Death Scythe must eat 99 Kishin eggs along with one witch soul in order to become one.[1] However, Kishin souls that are not consumed are seen buried into the Death Room.[5]

Special AbilitiesEdit


Shaula Gorgon - (18)

Shaula's soul

  • In the Soul Eater NOT! anime, Shaula's soul is seen to look much like that of a Kishin egg. It should be noted, however, that the Soul Eater NOT! anime follows its source detail much closer with details change and a deviation towards the end, therefore, the concept does not exist. The animes are not consistent with each other.
  • One of the various inconsistencies in Soul Eater anime is that though the Kishin eggs individuals are normally human, Asura's soul is seen as a Kishin Soul within the end credits being buried, despite him being a Shinigami. Mosquito's soul is also shown to be a Kishin egg, despite the latter being identified a Bloodsucker.[6]
