The Spirit of Thunder (スピリット・オブ・サンダー, Supiritto Obu Sanda) is one of the Five Grand Elemental Spirits (Godaiseirei), that was created by the Great Spirit itself. According to Sati Saigan it belongs to Tao Ren.


The Spirit of Thunder is one of five powerful elemental spirits known as the Grand Elemental Spirits (Godaiseirei), of the Patch Tribe. They are derived from the Great Spirit itself, and like it, constitute a collective of souls. They can be controlled by their respective Elemental Warrior, or a shaman of extraordinary power, like Asakura Hao. The power of the Godaiseirei is unmatched by any other spirit, except for the Great Spirit itself.

According to Pascal Avaf, the Spirit of Thunder follows the way of Taoism.[1]

After Patch Hao stole the Spirit of Fire, it was hidden by the Patch Tribe to avoid any other of the Grand Elemental Spirits to be stolen within the depths of hell and guarded by Izanami, one of the four Kings of Hell.[2]

  • Magnetic Field (磁場): By causing motion of the electric charges present within the electricity it produces, the Spirit of Thunder generates a large magnetic field centralized upon its fist, to repel attacks and so shield itself and others from damage.[4]

Anime/Manga DifferenceEdit

The Spirit of Thunder does not appear in the anime, as the Spirit of Fire appears to be a single, powerful entity under the Patch's control rather than a member of this group, though it was mentioned that there were four other spirits worshiped by the Patch other than the Spirit of Fire.[5]


  • According to the Kang Zeng Bang Extras the Spirit of Thunder has the same abilities as the Spirit of Fire to become stronger, by consuming souls.[6]
