Thorn (ソーン, Sōn) is a special ability of the Black Blood which relates to the creation of blood thorns. This ability is similar to Snake.[1]


Through the use of hand and arm movements, the user can create and manipulate thorns, which originate from the user's blood. This allows them to ensnare and cut opponents[2] as well as pull objects.[3] The thorns can also serve as defense and defend the user.[4] The thorns also carry a special poison which spreads the user's emotion, causing others' Soul Wavelengths to go out of control. As a result, a opponent could potentially temporarily lose the ability to wield a Demon Weapon.[5]
