Being invincible sure gets boring sometimes
I'll let you know what happens when you piss off people that are stronger than you!


Ban Midou (美堂蛮, Midō Ban) is one of the main protagonists in Getbackers. Known variously as "The Man with the Evil Eye" (邪眼の男) and "The Genius of Battles", he is the "B" in the Get Backers. He is the grandson of The Witch Queen and the son of Der Kaiser. Ban is the strongest character in Get Backers, as such he is far superior to the likes of Raitei Ginji, King of Light Masaki, Kyoji Kagami, Full Power Raitei, The Voodoo King and even Akabane and managed to beat the latter without the use of his Jagan.

His Jagan is also capable of using such effects), Creation (Using Hojutsu one can create Soulless or even Non-Existent beings which use a powerful Logic as a Soul), possibly Law Manipulation (Reality responds to Ban's wishes and beliefs and since he considers himself to be invincible that makes it virtually impossible for him to lose a fight, however he was never stated to have an invincibility belief like Akabane Kuroudo),

It was also stated that The Archiver is unable to predict their future nor the future they changed. Furthermore Ginji and Ban were unaffected by the encroachment of the beltline and the changes and rules The Archiver was imposing on reality), Statistics Reduction (Could engage in combat and defeat the likes of Akabane inside the Beltline which drains someone of his stamina), Time Manipulation (Defeated Kagami while having his own flow of time affected by the Magic Mirror)

Stamina: Very High using Asclepius (Using the power of Asclepius Ban stops the need to rely on natural senses, strength, agility, stamina, endurance, or speed)

Range: Standard melee range normally. Can cut through dimensions and can distort and ignore space. The Jagan is only limited by the need for eye contact.

Standard Equipment: Divine Design Cards.

Intelligence: Extraordinary Genius (Is one of the smartest characters in the series capable of predicting with accuracy future events through sheer intellect and determine a person's strength and a fight's worth with just a "glance").

Weaknesses: His jagan has a limit of 3 times per day and cannot be used twice on the same person on the same day. 

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

The Evil Eye: Firstly, he can utilize the Evil Eye (邪眼, Jagan), a power which allows him to make anyone watch a one-minute long illusion, however, it should only be used three times per day. The Evil Eye cannot be used on the same person again for the next 24 hours. Furthermore, while the illusion only lasts for one minute, should Ban will it, the one affected by the Jagan can be placed inside a time-warp zone via the illusion created by the technique. Ban has also shown the ability to use the Jagan through a TV screen.

Verschwinde Geist (Begone Spirit): It's a spell that allows Ban to erase something from existence or choose to send it back to its point of origin (The Archiver).

The Art of Imagination: If you imagine strong enough it will become reality. With this Ban can turn anything he imagines into reality or turns illusions into reality. Der Kaiser used this to create make Kagami believe a snake bit off his arm though it was just an illusion. Ban then did the same thing to Help, but this time it really bit off Help's arm. Which means the user can choose whether they just want to create an illusion or turn it into reality.

Power Nullification: Ban is capable of nullifying powers by creating logic which can be used to negate immortalties, non-corporeality, magic and more. Since everything is bound by logic, manipulating this allows Ban to nullify any effect desirable. His Jagan was also capable of such effects and was able to use the Jagan on Sariel, whose guardian card was immune to its effects

Turning Circle: Ban and Maria Noches being students of the Witch Queen are able to use Turning Circle which is a circle capable of equalizing every stat to that of an opponent (speed, power, and natural talent), moreover any damage inflicted upon the user will be reflected back to the attacker leaving the user completely unscathed.

Asclepius: Being a descendant of the witch clan Ban was born under the star of Asclepius. He possesses tremendous speed and strength, moreover, he can always rely on the power of Asclepius and increase his speed and strength multiple folds. When using this to a great extent the outline of a snake can be seen.

  • Devil Arm: Ban's born curse. Much like Asclepius this arm will keep on multiplying Ban's speed and strength to an unknown limit though it should be stated that while using the Devil Arm he was able to effortlessly match and outdo Ginji when he was channeling the whole power of Infinity Fortress. While it does drain Ban's lifespan the Devil's Arm allowed Ban to fight against Raitei. He was capable of grounding pure energy from Raitei and even seemingly regenerate from wounds. He is also able to distort space and like Akabane can cut through dimensions to ignore space.
    • Final Devil Arm: In his battle against Der Kaiser due to overusing the Devil Arm, it took over transforming Ban into a berserker. The effects of this form should be equal to that of the previous form if not higher.
      • Angel Arm: Same as the previous versions though the Angel Arm doesn't curse Ban and he gains a much greater boost in power and speed, so much so that he keeps on getting faster and faster until he becomes faster than the opponent such as in his fight against Akabane.
