Slayers Magic

(Important note: There are three continuities to the Slayers universe: the novels, the manga, and the anime. This deals mainly with the anime and there will be differences from the manga and novels.)

The spell list was taken from the site and compared with the anime series and what OVAs I have. However the list was done before Software Sculptors and ADV came out with their translations and clearly pulls from sources other than the anime series or OVA themselves as the spells at times do not work as described at that site and in some cases even change fuction. For example Recovery works as Share Fatigue spell in #76 but works as Major Healing in #26.

Path of kuro-majutsu (Black Magic) (IQ/VH)
Ritual Magic-6

Kuro-majutsu spells are powerful mainly because they get reaction bonus for negative emotions or destructive actions. The greater the destruction or stronger the negative emotions, the higher the reaction bonus. As a result, is is not uncommon to get Good or better reaction rolls with Kuro-majutsu spells. (See sidebar, Fatigue Costs.) The main power sources are: Hellmaster Fiblizo, Deep Sea Dolphin, Greater Beast Zelas-Metallium, Dynast Grauscherra, Gaav the Demon Dragon King, Dark Lord Shabranigdu, and The Lord of Nightmares herself.

Black Magic - Curses and Summoning Spells

Gaia Graze
Summon Brass Demon. The demon obeys the commands of the person who summoned it, and can only be damaged by spirit-shamanist magic, black magic, and anti-evil white magic.
Necro Vuud
Zombie (variant) spell but uses spirits and ghosts.
Raugnut Rusyavuna
This powerful curse can only be used by pure Mazoku. Any living being that is enchanted by this magic turns into an indiscriminate ball of flesh with the ability to regenerate infinitely. Flesh snakes emerge from the target's skin, which loop back and devour the target - a process which repeats endlessly, causing the victim to suffer eternal pain. Legend has it that the Fallen Hero King Dirus II attempted to wage war on the Mazoku and was sent back as one of these balls of flesh. There is no way to free the target from this curse except to destroy the Mazoku that cast it.
Vun Ga Ruim
Planar Summons ("Black Beasts") The Black Beasts then touch the target(s) and start draining their mental energy. These beasts can only be harmed by offensive spells of the spirit category, black magic, or white magic.
Zelas Got
Summon Animal (Jellyfish)
-L #31

Black Magic - Offensive

Balus Rod (Valis Rod)
A whip of light appears in the caster's palm which can be used to attack.
Blast Ash
The caster makes a black void appear in a certain area, and anything alive or possessing a spirit is turned into ash.
-A #45; -L #49
Blast Wave
With a single hit with both hands, the spell can open a hole in a wall large enough for a person to pass through with ease though no shockwave is generated.
This is an activation phrase for the talismans Xellos gives to Lina. Note that this calls on the Lord of Nightmares herself:
"Lord of the Darkness and the Four Worlds, I call upon you, grant me all the power that you possess!"
Dark Claw
A spell which shoots out magical energy balls, which tend to resemble winged insects with unclear edges. These balls cause the area which they touch to disintegrate, and go through the target's body.
Dis Fang
Animate Shadow variant (creates a shadow dragon).
-L #49
Dolph Strash
Like Dolph Zork, this spell calls on the power of Deep-Sea Dolphin. A spear-like shockwave moves at super sonic speed, destroying the target. Unlike Dolph Zork, this spell can even be used where there is no water.
Dolph Zork
Spell which calls on the power of Deep Sea Dolphin, one of Ruby-Eye Shabranigdu's five lords. The spell turns water into a single sharp blade which cuts through practically anything. However, this spell can only be cast where there is a lot of water.

"Darkness from twilight, crimson from blood that flows; buried in the flow of time; in Thy great name, I pledge myself to darkness! Those who oppose us shall be destroyed by the power you and I possess! DRAGON SLAVE!!"

Dragon Slave
Explosive Fireball variant powered by Ruby-Eye Shabranigdu.
-L #39
Dynast Bras
Lightning falls around the target in a pentagram, and then the lightning rushes towards the target. Calls on the power of Dynast Grauscherra.

-L #45, -A #48; -Z #49
Dynast Breath
A spell which calls on the power of Dynast Grauscherra, one of Ruby-Eye Shabranigdu's five lords. This spell instantly freezes the target with ice (which can freeze even Mazoku) and, right after that, the frozen target is shattered along with the ice. By careful placement, though, it is possible to keep the target alive in ice.
-Z #45
Ferious Breed
Summon Animal.
"Star which passes through heavens' night skies, heed the ancient coven and the Earth, I pledge my life that he may be called forth! FERIOUS BREED!"
-L #35
Flame Breath
This creats a magic circle which pelts the enemy with energy.
"Anna-ku rahzu lamku so. izu-pe ku naomu! FLAME BREATH!"
-F #60, #76
Gaav Flare
Flame Jet variant. Powered by Chaos-Dragon Gaav.
-L #10, #45, -Z #30; -A #47

"Darkness beyond blackest pitch, deeper than the deepest night! Lord of Darkness, shining like gold upon the Sea of Chaos, I call upon thee, swear myself to thee! Let the fools who stand before us be destroyed by the power you and I possess! GIGA SLAVE!!"

Giga Slave
Thought to be a combat spell, Giga Slave is in fact a summoning spell for the Lord of Nightmares (Golden Demon Lord). The Water Dragon king, forgetting that the Lord of Nightmares was the mother of both the Kami and Demons, has portrayed the spell as having the potential to destroy the world.
-L #51-52
Hell Blast
This spell creates a spear of darkness which steals the life force of living beings. This power of darkness ends the effect of all sources of power, making it possible to destroy undead whose life depend on the dark powers.
Laguna Blast
This spell calls on the power of Hellmaster Fibrizo, one of the five lords of Shabranigdu. With the target of the spell in the center of an inverted pentagram, a pillar of light shoots upwards, followed by black plasma which spills out of the pillar and envelops the victim.
Ragna Blade
Creates a blade of composed of the power of the Lord of Nightmares (Golden Demon Lord) which can cut through anything. However the spell takes a physical toll on the caster to the point of causing physical damage if maintained for too long.
"Sword of the cold, dark void, free yourself from the heaven's bonds. Become one with my power one with my body and let us walk the path of destruction together. Power that can smash even the souls of the gods! LAGUNA BLADE!"
-L #37, #48-50, #60, #74
Ruby-Eye Blade
A spell which calls on the power of Ruby-Eye Shabranigdu. The spell forms a crimson blade from the powerful magical energy released by the demon king. The blade is even more powerful than the legendary Sword of Light and can cut through anything in the world.
Zelas Brid
Calls on the power of Greater Beast Zelas-Metallium, one of the five lords of Ruby Eye Shabranigudu. A thin band of light, more powerul than Dynast Brass, moves in any direction the caster wills toward the target. The basic structure of this spell is similar to that of Balus Rod.

Cleansing spell
Disenchant (kaiju)
Spell which negates the effect of curses and spells with durations (sleep, control, etc). Can only be used by high-level priests.

Dispel Magic

-A #12
Mos Varim
A counterspell which can only be used against fire. This spell was created by improving the Ext Ball spell. The spell creates a ball of light which has the effect of drawing fire into itself, extinguishing the flames. Caution is necessary because the spell can also affect fire spells cast by party members.
Ray Freeze
