The Mage Ranking (魔術師の位階, Majutsushi no Ikai) is a mage ranking system.
The Mage Ranking is a seven-rank system approved by the Mage Society which ranks mages on a scale from 1 to 7, with 1 being the lowest rank and 7 being the highest rank, as follows:
- Unde (
第一階梯, unde/daiichi kaitei)
- Duode (
第二階梯, dyuode/daini kaitei)
- Trede (
第三階梯, torede/daisan kaitei)
- Quatrede (
第四階梯, kuattorude/daiyon kaitei)
- Quinde (
第五階梯, kuinde/daigo kaitei)
- Sede (
第六階梯, sēde/dairoku kaitei)
- Septende (
第七階梯, seputende/dainana kaitei)
Ranks are assigned according to a mage's abilities and research history. Trede can be attained by anyone who puts in the effort. However, ranks beyond Trede are reserved for especially talented mages, and Septende is considered to be outside the realm of humanity. The majority of mages never make it past Quatrede.
Known Rankings Edit

- Each rank name is derived from Latin, corresponding to the Latin numerical prefixes unde (11), duode (12), tredec (13), quatuordec (14), quinde (15), sede (16), and septende (17).
- Although all ranks are specifically referred to by their Latinate names in the light novel, when spoken, their Japanese names are used exclusively in the Japanese version of the anime. On the other hand, the English dub version of the anime uses the Latinate names exclusively.
