The Spirit Spear Chastiefol「霊槍シャスティフォル, Reisō Shasutiforu」 is King's Sacred Treasure, and a holy weapon crafted from the Sacred Tree found only in the Fairy Realm.[1]

Appearance

Chastiefol has ten different forms[2], but frequently appears as a mottled, green pillow that King carries with him. During combat, it can transform into a long, broad spear with two out-turned lugs at the base of the head, that forms a guard similar to that of a boar spear. Each of its forms also has a "true form" that King is able to unleash for even more power.

Abilities

Regular Form

It is much stronger than steel and has mysterious qualities of the Sacred Tree, which King's ability, Disaster, draws out.[3] It is capable of regenerating itself even after being split in two or in pieces.[4] It has ten different forms and can be transformed from one to another at King's will.

While in this form the moss body will parry any physical attack,[10] but can also be directly controlled by King to fight or immobilize enemies with its four arms. Due to the high water concentration within the moss it is highly resistant to fire; however, because of this quality it bears a weakness against cold and freezing attacks.[11] Additionally, the form's soft, fluffy body allows it to resist blunt force attacks.[12]
