Ra Tilt (Japanese: 崩霊裂, Kanji translation: Crumble Spirit Rend, Romaji: ra tiruto) is the strongest astral shamanistic spell a human can cast without artifically enlarging his or her bucket capacity.
Said to be the Dragon Slave's equal in power, the Ra Tilt is one of the most powerful shamanistic spells and is certainly the most useful one when fighting mazoku. Unlike Dragon Slave, this spell can only affect a single target, who is instantly engulfed in blue flames while his or her astral body is torn to pieces. Humans and low-ranking mazoku have almost no chance of survival on a direct hit, and even middle-ranking mazoku can be seriously damaged by it.
towa to mugen wo tayutaishi
subete no kokoro no minamoto yo
tsukiru koto naki aoiki honoo yo
waga tamashii no uchi ni nemurishi sono chikara
mugen yori kitarite sabaki wo ima koko ni
Dwelling within the eternal and the infinite,
source of all souls,
everlasting flame of blue,
let the power hidden in my soul
be called forth from the infinite...
- While in the anime it is stated that Ra Tilt cannot harm humans, this could be some script mistake, since the very same spell is used on several occasions on humans in the anime, expecting to hurt or even kill them.
Examples of use
- Zelgadiss Graywords used the Ra Tilt against Shabranigdu after the dark lord's rebirth at the hands of Rezo, but the dark lord still proved too powerful.
- Zelgadiss Graywords also used Ra Tilt in EP17 of Slayers NEXT to destroy the low-ranking mazoku Evia.
- Amelia Wil Tesla Saillune used Ra Tilt in EP05 of Slayers NEXT in an attempt to kill the human Halcyform, who had made an immortality pledge with the mazoku Seigram.
