Black Wing Armor (黒羽の鎧 Kureha no Yoroi) is one of Erza Scarlet's armors.


As its name implies, this armor is black in color, sporting some silver trimming. A distinctive feature of the armor is its pair of wings, which are reminiscent of those of a Dragon or a bat. Around Erza’s neck is a neck guard decorated by several gems, and, while wearing this armor, her long scarlet hair is tied up in a high ponytail, with two bangs framing her face. Her large shoulderpads, each composed of two silver-edged plates one over the other, sport silver crosses on them too, and flank the high collar, whose shape is reminiscent of that of a dress. The silver-edged breastplate reveals a fair amount of Erza’s cleavage and belly, with plates flanking her hips and reaching down to her very large waistguard, composed of very long, silver-edged plates shaped like feathers and decorated by silver crosses. The waistguard leaves the front of Erza’s body exposed, with her groin being covered by a dark indument. The slim gauntlets come equipped with prominent protection for her hands, each sporting silver patterns. The plates guarding her legs are sliver-edged on her thighs and knees, but pitch black dark on her metal greaves.[1]

Special Features

Black Wing Erza

Black Wing's Sword

  • Sword: Black Wing Armor allows the user to summon a single sword. The sword itself sports an intricate design with a multicolored purple and silver blade accompanied by two red diamond shaped gems, equally spread apart on the sword's blade. Along with that, it also has a brown hilt with a golden hand guard.[1] However, in the manga it appears more simplistic, missing the intricate sword design with the gems no longer on the blade.[4]

Erza's Axes

Black Wing's Axes

  • Axes: Black Wing Armor also gives the user the ability to summon two axes. Each ax appears the same with a purple handle leading up to the axes' blade which is black in color and ended up in a gold pointed tip. They also have bandages that wraps the axes' shaft below the blade.[5]
