Reflector (屈折, リフレクター, Rifurekutā) is a Caster-Type Magic.


Reflector is a form of Magic which enables its user to twist and distort almost anything.[2] It can affect both material things, such as metal,[3] and airy entities, such as air[4] and light.[1] Such Magic possesses both great offensive and defensive capabilities: by refracting air, the user is capable of generating highly-destructive flying slashes of various size, which possess great cutting power.[4][5][6] By twisting anything entering the immediate area surrounding them, the user becomes virtually immune to attacks, be they physical or Magical in nature, with every incoming spell or melee assault having its trajectory moved in order to avoid striking the user,[7] who can even send them back at their foes.[8] By refracting light,[1] the user is even capable of generating illusions,[1] going as far as to twist reality itself in the eyes of their opponents.[9]

Reflector appears to be a very powerful form of Magic, with even Jellal Fernandes, a former member of the Ten Wizard Saints, praising it.[1] In spite of its undeniable advantages, however, this Magic also suffers from several drawbacks:

  • The user is capable of twisting anything aside from human bodies.[10]
  • The user can only use his/her refracting powers on a single area at a time, either around him/her or elsewhere.[11]
  • The user can momentarily twist objects with elastic properties, but these will be ineffective in both restraining and harming opponents, and will eventually return to their normal state.[11]
  • The illusions generated by the user refracting light won't affect individuals looking at them with artificial eyes.[12]

Reflector being combined with Darkness Magic

Reflector can also be used in conjunction with other forms of Magic: by employing it alongside Darkness Magic, Midnight was able to surpass the repelling power of Dan Straight's shield Ricochet by reflecting back the spell he had casted from all of his opponent's sides; he used a similar combination when pitted against Byro Cracy, through drastically reducing the affectability of the man's Magic through refraction, which, in itself renowned for its ability to nullify other Magics, Midnight was then able to successfully assault him with Darkness Magic.[13]
