AboutEdit

Archangel Cars

The Archangels in their car form

The Archangels were created by having a priest call upon the spirits of the real Archangels and then through a hard process, fusing them with the spirits of the cars, thus giving birth to mechanical nature spirits.[1] Michael and Lucifer were created from cars that gained their own spirit. Asakura Yoh speculates that the cause of this was some kind of importance to Marco and Luchist.[2]

Marco himself reveals that the true form of the Archangels is their car form. Using the Oversoul, the Archangel's car form can be driven by their Shamans.[3]

Their main ability is to shatter other spirits when they attack them, as seen when Michael impales Boris Tepes Dracula and makes him disappear.

Michael Car mode

Michael as a car

Michael originates from a red '92 Ferrari Testarossa that was so important to Marco, it gained a spirit.[2] Marco explains that his Testarossa was created for someone very rich and is most likely the last of its kind in the world. Aside from its angelic powers, it can also be turned into an Over Soul shaped as the sports car it originally was.


Attacks

  • Archangel Fire: This attack involves Marco and the other X-Laws lining up and taking aim with their weapons and then simultaneously launching all of their Archangels at the same target. By using all seven Archangels, this attack becomes strong enough to cripple and even send almost any person into a near death state. This attack seems to use a minimal amount of Furyoku and it happens so fast that barely anyone sees it before it is over.[4]


O.S. "Fake Marco"

  • Shaman: Marco Lasso
  • O.S. Type: Spirit Type
  • Spirit Ally: Michael
  • Medium used: Marco's Glasses

Description: During Marco's final battle with Luchist, it is revealed that by using his glasses as a medium to materialize Michael, that this Over Soul can create an exact replica of Marco. However, the ability has a small weakness in the fact that the Oversoul cannot produce a shadow, meaning an opponent could make use of this to deduce who is the real Marco.[5]

He is also sometimes said to be chief of the thrones; the ruling angel of the planet Saturn; and a special patron of Noah, guiding him in the building of the ark and helping to ensure the survival of his family. It is possible that he can be equated with the angel Zaphkiel listed as an archangel and head of the choir of thrones-but some scholars dispute this.

Lotus elise

Zelel as a car

This archangel O.S. is housed within Sword No-008 "Lyserg Derringer" which was given to Lyserg after being officially inducted into the X-Laws. This O.S. manifests in the form of the 8th angel, Zelel, which is the spirit of the rare roadster, blue Lotus Elise. Zelel has a slender build and has its wings on its hips. Aside from its angelic powers, it is very nimble and can even transform into vehicle form for travel. Until Lyserg was given Zelel it was chained up in a the X-Laws weapon storage on their cargo ship.[6]

  • Medium(s) used: Pendulum Bay "Elizabeth" w/ crystal pendulum & Sword No-008 "Lyserg Derringer"

Description: This is a multiple-spirit Armor-type O.S. which Lyserg creates while in the underworld. Through the partial guidance of Pascal Avaf and his two spirits, Lyserg forges this new O.S. which integrates Zelel and Morphine with his Derringer and his "Elizabeth". The O.S. manifests as a huge pair of pauldrons and a fault connected by a strip of back armor, thus covering his shoulders and waist. Five additional armor fragments suspend themselves behind Lyserg's head for additional protection, and six burning arms of Furyoku, resembling his original O.S. Homing Pendulum, give it simultaneous defense and offense. Lyserg attributes the nature of this O.S. as a means to prevent himself from being consumed by the fires of his anger, thus attuning his Furyoku to the element of fire.
