Ark聖櫃アーク Āku; literally meaning "Holy Chest"」 is a magical power exclusive to the members of the Goddess Clan, as they possess a deep connection to Light.


Ark is a magic power that uses light particles[5], which is utilized by the Goddess Clan. It can be used in different ways such as forming energy beams, explosions, energy blades, barriers, myriads etc.[6] Highest-ranked goddesses such as the Four Archangels can use Ark on a massive scale.[7]

The target often is enveloped in a dazzling sphere of light that breaks apart their body. It is mostly used to counteracts darkness by disintegrating it, though it also can cause physical damage. It is highly effective against the Demon Clan due to their power of darkness, more neutral yet strong to the other races while being least effective on other goddesses.

As descendants of the Goddess Clan, the Celestials can use Ark as well, but at a less powerful level.[8]
