The Space Between Time or Time Rift (時の狭間 Toki no Hazama) is a conceptual power source described to be the "magic of nothingness".
The Space Between Time was created from the distortions in the time from the five Dragon Slayers and Anna Heartfilia crossing over 400 years, which as the concept of time passed and tried to fix itself it was manufactured. The magic of nothingness, neither light or dark, it was originally stated that no one can exist within it, as well as live within it. It is possible that it can be moved, shut off and/or closed that if those who touch it simply pass right through, as well as it can be harnessed to be used in conjunction with other Magics (such as Fairy Heart).
Described by Anna, the Space Between Time is not a true power, but more of a concept. With the power of it in the user's grasp, it can be used to warp individuals into a Rift in Space and Time, something a controller of it in Acnologia did by consuming the magical source. However, similar to the side effects of using Last Ages, consuming the Space Between Time will split the consumer into a spiritual figure (which resides in the Rift in Space and Time) and physical figure (which could be rampart and mindless due to the split).
