Shock Bolt (ショック・ボルト, Shokku Boruto) is a preliminary spell that beginners use for self-defence and to paralyze their opponent.

Description Edit

When the user recites the incantations a ray of purple light with a arrow in the front attacks the opponent making them unable to move. It is a spell that fires a line of electricity at a mid-range target. Although it was a non-lethal magic that was primarily used for self-defense, it’s power was sufficient enough to cause its target to become paralyzed and unable to move.

Incantations Edit

Its standard three-phrase chant is "Thunder sprites, / pay heed, and strike / with your electric shock" (《雷精よ・紫電の衝撃以て・撃ち倒せ》, Raisei yo / shiden no shōgeki motte / uchitaose). Shock Bolt can also be cast using the one-phrase chant "Thunder sprites, shock!" (《雷精の紫電よ》, Raisei no shiden yo). In the English dub version of the anime, its standard three-phrase chant is "Thunder sprites, pay heed, / and strike with your / electric shock," while its one-phrase chant is "Thunder sprites, shock!"

Breaking it into four parts as "Thunder sprites, / pay heed, / and strike / with your electric shock" (雷精よ・紫電の・衝撃以て・撃ち倒せ, Raisei yo / shiden no / shōgeki motte / uchitaose) causes it to slash right once it hits a target/reaches max range. In the English dub version, this was chanted as "Thunder sprites, / pay heed, / and strike with your / electric shock."

Splitting it into five parts as "Thunder / sprites, / pay heed, / and strike / with your electric shock" (雷・精よ・紫電の・衝撃以て・撃ち倒せ, Rai / sei yo / shiden no / shōgeki motte / uchitaose) cuts its firing range by about two-thirds.

Removing part of the chant causes a drastic decrease in output. In the anime, this is performed while keeping the chant in five phrases according to the previous paragraph as {{nihongo|"Thunder / sprites, / pay heed, / strike / with your electric shock"|雷・精よ・紫電の・  以て・撃ち倒せ|Rai / sei yo / shiden no / motte / uchitaose). However, in the light novel, this is performed with a three phrase chant instead as "O Thunder Sprites, / with your lightning / strike them down (雷精よ・紫電  以て・撃ち倒せ, Raisei yo / shiden motte / uchitaose).

Additionally, Glenn can cast it with the half-hearted three-phrase chant "Well / anyway / paralyze" (《まあ・とにかく・痺れろ》, Maa / tonikaku / shibirero), though he does note that it was weaker than he expected.

Trivia Edit

  • In Episode 1 of the English dub version of the anime, before Glenn and Sistine's duel, Gibul Wisdan introduces the spell with the three-phrase chant "Thunder sprites, pay heed, / and strike with your / electric shock." However, during the duel, Glenn uses the incorrect chant "Thunder sprites, take heed, / and strike with your / electric shock." Glenn uses the correct chant during his Shock Bolt lesson in Episode 2.
  • In the anime, when Glenn removes the element "shock" (衝撃, shōgeki) from the five-phrase chant, it results in a chant whose faithful translation is "O Thunder / Sprites, / with your lightning thing / strike them down" (雷・精よ・紫電の・  以って・撃ち倒せ, Rai / sei yo / shiden no / motte / uchitaose). However, in the light novel, Glenn removes "shock of" (の衝撃, no shōgeki) from the three-phrase chant, resulting in the more natural expression, "O Thunder Sprites, / with your lightning / strike them down" (雷精よ・紫電  以て・撃ち倒せ, Raisei yo / shiden motte / uchitaose).
  • In Episode 11 of the English dub version of the anime, Leos Kleitos' students use the shortened chant "Thunder sprites, electric shock!"
