Ikusa-Tsunagi (イクサツナギ Ikusatsunagi) was one of the Yakuma Eighteen War Gods. He was summoned by Avatar priest Arlock, who wanted to unleash him upon innocents and his own cultists alike in order to perform Operation Purify.


Ikusa-Tsunagi is a colossal, heavily muscular being with black, armor-like skin; his face resembles that of a lion's, jutting out of which (specifically from his cheekbones) two horns that resemble Mirajane's horns from her Sitri Satan Soul, which in and of themselves are eclipsed by bone-like horns that encase the jawline, and travel up the side of the head, of Ikusa-Tsunagi. On his chin is a long, pointed tuft of facial hair that appears to be a goatee, and a wild mane of hair juts upwards, growing from the top of his down past his clavicle. The War God also has pupil-less eyes and black sclera, and demonic, clawed hands and bestial-looking feet.[1][2]

For attire, Ikusa-Tsunagi wears very little, save for a leather-looking war skirt that has markings resembling clouds adorned on the front, and a large belt decorated with the same markings fastened tightly around his waist; the belt has tooth-like ornaments jutting out from both the top and bottom. The deity also carries a sword for combat.[3]


Avatar arc

After Arlock is defeated by Natsu, the former summons Ikusa-Tsunagi as an essential part of his Operation Purify, intending to use the Yakuma War God to massacre his own fellow cultists, believing this act could attract Zeref. Ikusa-Tsunagi then comes out of the portal in the clouds feet first, killing a large number of cultists by stomping on them, while the rest go flying. Before long he completely emerges from the clouds, ready to fulfill the wishes of Arlock.[4]

Ikusa-Tsunagi then immediately strikes the scattered Avatar cultists and Fairy Tail Mages. Just after, Natsu climbs up his sword and punches his head, all to no avail. However, Ikusa-Tsunagi is then killed by Natsu's Flame Dragon King's Demolition Fist, which shatters him into pieces.[5]

Magic and Abilities

Immense Strength: Befitting of his physical stature and status as a God, Ikusa-Tsunagi possesses immeasurable amounts of strength, being able to carry around a sword roughly the size of himself,[3] and swing it so hard that it tears the ground apart for apparent kilometers in distance.[6]


Sword: Ikusa-Tsunagi wielded a massive sword befitting his size,[3] capable of splitting the ground open.[6]
