The Flower of Maize (フラワーオブメイズ, Furawā obu Meizu), shortened to "FoM", is a tournament held between teams, each representing a member of the G8.
When three or more members of the G8 raises a complaint against the current Shaman King, they will hold a summit to contest the Shaman King's actions. If they are unable to agree, a tournament is held on earth with one team fighting on behalf of each member, as a fight between themselves would easily destroy the planet.
Each Shaman King have to choose 5 members; 1 leader and 4 captains. The leader themselves can choose up to 2 advisors, while each captain can pick up to 3 warriors each. The advisors and warriors can be changed at any point, but he original 5 members cannot be changed once the tournament is underway and if any of them is killed it is strictly forbidden to revive any of them. Each member of the winning team is granted a miracle and can ask their Shaman King to fulfill any wish they might have.
