"Only through tears will people become strong..."

Warcry to Orga Nanagear in "Olga of the Black Lightning"

Warcry (ウォークライ Wōkurai) is a Mage of the Quatro Cerberus Guild.


Warcry's full appearance

Warcry is a tan-skinned, young, slim man with a very muscular abdomen. He has an elongated and rectangular face and nose, and is seen showing his teeth most of time, giving him a ferocious look. He has squared eyes with small dark pupils, thin eyebrows and no visible hair. His fingernails also seem to have been painted a dark color.[1]

Warcry's most characteristic feature is his dog-like cloak, which is colored beige and possesses a red mane, long ears and jaw, resembling an animal carpet made from the skin and fur of dead animals.[2] Warcry inserts his head inside the dog's mouth, hiding his hair, and his Guild Crest is localized on the back of the cloak. Aside from the cloak, Warcry wears only dark pants with rectangular white stripes, with the bottom of his pants stuffed into light-colored boots. On his wrists he wears long bands with tassels and stripes.[1]


Warcry crying

Warcry, alongside the other members of his guild, seems to be a rather aggressive and fierce man. He is usually seen standing in ferocious positions with his teeth clenched and arms raised, his fingers curled like claws. He is also seen making howl-like noises along with his other guild mates.[3] When utilizing his Tear Magic, however, Warcry becomes a very emotional person, claiming that people can only become strong through tears.[4]


Grand Magic Games arc

Warcry defeated

Warcry, alongside Team Quatro Cerberus, passed the Grand Magic Games' preliminary event, Sky Labyrinth, in 7th place.[5] After cheering for Jäger in the first event, he was chosen to participate in the first day's third battle against Orga Nanagear of Sabertooth. As Warcry faces Orga, he starts crying to initiate his Tear Magic but is immediately struck down by Orga, who knocks him out with only one spell.[6] Due to the "sorry state" his overwhelming defeat left him in, Bacchus decided to enter the Grand Magic Games, replacing him.[7]

After the Grand Magic Games came to a close, the King of Fiore brought all the Magic Guilds and their Mages together to warn them of the impending threat of the Dragon horde said to be coming their way, and what the Kingdom plans to do to combat against such a calamity. The King then requests for their assistance against the remaining Dragons who survive the firing of the Eclipse Cannon, to which Warcry and the rest of the Mages gathered all agree to in unison.[8] Warcry is later seen with the rest of Quatro Cerberus and Mermaid Heel, awaiting the potential battle.[9]

Following the successful defeat of the Dragons, Warcry and the other Mages who helped protect the country are invited to a banquet celebrating their victory; while there, Warcry and his teammates wildly cheer for Bacchus when he and Cana begin to engage in a drinking contest.[10] Warcry cheers again when his guild joins the bid for Yukino Agria's membership. He then gets drawn into a wide-scale fight,[11] where he engages a member of Twilight Ogre in a petty fist fight.[12]

Magic and Abilities

Warcry using his Magic

Tear Magic (涙魔法 Namida Mahō): Warcry, as his very name suggests with a pun, utilizes Tear Magic, focused around the use of his tears. He was shown as being able to start crying profusely in mere seconds, something which supposedly results in him becoming capable of casting spells. Such peculiar form of Magic seems to be renowned as particularly powerful and effective, having received praise from the likes of Sabertooth's Sting Eucliffe and Rufus Lore, as well as from the former member of the Magic Council Yajima. The capability of this Magic, however, is completely unknown, as Orga Nanagear easily defeated Warcry before he had a chance to cast any spell at him. Nonetheless, Tear Magic was implied to possess effective offensive abilities, with Sting wondering whether Orga could dodge the attack Warcry was apparently readying.[4] In the anime, Warcry states that the more he cries, the stronger he gets; which somewhat relates to his statement that "only through tears one becomes stronger".[15]

Which explains why some stats are missing and why others may be inaccurate. According to Jason from the Sorcerer Magazine, during his participation in the Grand Magic Games of X791, Warcry's stats are:[16]
