It is good to meet you. I am Rimuru, a slime. Not a bad slime, you know!
~ Rimuru introducing himself to the adventurers

Geld, your Ravenous is a powerful unique skill, I’ll grant you that. But you’re not a predator. You’re a scavenger. You can eat anything, which is incredible, but I’m adapted for catching and consuming. And that gives me the advantage. If we’re gonna keep eating at each other, I’ll be the one to gain new skills from it first.

My Predaceous instincts will it to be done! I can analyze and obtain skills even from living creatures, but you, Geld—you can only steal them from their corpses. And that’s what will decide this.''

~ Rimuru before devouring Geld

Rimuru Tempest
…In the future, though, maybe. Once I wasn’t so needed any longer, perhaps it’d be fun to be a freelance adventurer for a while. Too bad you guys will probably be dead of old age by then…
~ Rimuru reflecting on what he would do as time goes on

Gluttony Rendered
I see, So you’re already dead. You’re going to be obstinate right up to the end, aren’t you? Why are you pestering me like this? Continuing to have it attack your foe, even after death… If someone doesn’t completely wipe this thing out, it’s gonna threaten the whole world someday.
~ Hinata's observation on Gluttony

TSSDK Anime Rimuru2
Right, I’ve mentioned before, I don’t care whether I become Demon Lord or not. I just want to create a country satisfactory for myself. I need human help in that aspect, that’s why I’ve decided to protect the humans. If anyone dares to intrude, whether they be humans, Demon Lords or the Saints Church, they are all my enemies. For instance, you, Clayman.

Rimuru and Great Sage modifying his and his own subordinates' information with his skills like Deviant is them manipulating the information etched onto the soul. Furthermore, Great Sage could take the memories from Rimuru's previous live which are stated to be burned into his soul during the reincarnation process and convert that into pure information that's comparable to a photographic memory and can access them better than Mikami Satoru's original brain could. From this information, Great Sage can not only project them into someone else in real time just like Rimuru when interacting with Shizue but also "print" them in manga form. Other uses shown are Great Sage constantly filtering or converting the information from Magic Sense and sending the "edited" version to Rimuru and Rimuru sending fake information to Clayman's encrypted communication in Myulan's heart thinking that Rimuru killed Myulan), Hacking (Can hack into Clayman's form of encrypted communication in Myulan's heart that runs on electric signals and natural magnetism which contains a vast amount of encoded information he was receiving and unraveling in his head) Genius Intelligence (With Great Sage, he can process various information such as scanning all the books in the entire library and process all of the information in an instant), Sound Manipulation (Can use Voice Cannon, a shout loud enough to break free from paralysis or use to atomize targets), Law Manipulation and Power Nullification (Anti-Magic Area rewrites the laws of the world to create a barrier which prevents the usage of magic), Gravity Manipulation (Can control gravity), Matter Manipulation (Can control the molecules in the air.

At the same time, Rimuru is a Transmigrant from another world that retains all of his memories which showcase how strong his soul is considering that a regular soul, by itself, would have no hope surviving a journey across the realm since it would dissolve midway, taking its memories with it. If the soul somehow survive the journey, they either lost their memories or retain some of their memories at best if they are lucky. Rimuru is superior to Glutton who was unaffected by Hinata's Astral Bind that binds the astral body, the vessel of the soul, instead of the material one), Memory Manipulation and Willpower Manipulation (Transmigrant are those who retain their memory of their past lives since their memories of their past lives are burned into their souls due to their powerful will. Transmigrant people sometimes retain their memory of their past lives but a Transmigrant from another world is uncommon and a regular soul, by itself, would have no hope surviving a journey across the realm since it would dissolve midway, taking its memories with it. Transmigrant people from another world would retain half of their memories at best if they're lucky while Rimuru is a Transmigrant from another world but he retains all of his memories which showcase how strong his willpower), Pain Manipulation (with Cancel Pain), Spatial Manipulation (Analyzed the cause of Hakurou's wounds that was struck by Kyoya's space severing attack which in turn gained the ability to resist and counteract with spatial element), Information Manipulation (Magic Senses overloads the brain with so much information it would have killed a normal human, but can be used casually), Data Manipulation (The information from Magic Sense is turned into data, which overloads the human brain, but can be used casually), Death Manipulation and Radiation Manipulation (As a monster above A-Rank, Rimuru can resist Veldora's aura which causes the death of humans), Sense Manipulation (Stronger than Ranga, who can resist Confusion, a spell which distorts senses of smell), Empathic Manipulation and Madness Manipulation (Type 2) (On a scale of 200,000, Scaling to Geld II who is the only one among the Orcs to still have "clear eyes" and the only Orc was sane and not affected by Demon Lord Geld's Unique Skill "Starved" during the Orc Lord arc), Law Manipulation and Power Nullification (Can resist the Anti-Magic Area with his Multilayer Barrier.

It can detect those who have hostility intent from far away), Greatly Improved Information Analysis (Great Sage evolved into Wisdom Lord Raphael granting Rimuru more detailed information on the subject even if they attempt to hide it and will know if the subject is faking their description or not. Raphael is always functional even without Rimuru's consent, doing its on modus operandi that will always benefit Rimuru and its intelligence even expands to unknown certainties across the world), Regeneration (Mid-Godly; Can instantly regenerate his physical body; Can regenerate from Spirit Particles attack such as Melt Slash, a sword art fused with Disintegration that completely annihilates everything from cells to souls), Sealing (Can trap his target in a complex number of spatial dimensions), Existence Erasure (Spirit Particles such as Disintegration and Melt Slash can destroy all physical and spiritual components of the target that leaves nothing without a trace), Holy Manipulation (Has access to Spirit Particles that the Holy Knight use), Enhanced Perception Manipulation (Can accelerate his opponents perception of time and increase his thought process into millions of times), Improved Reactive Evolution (After Rimuru's ascension to Demon Lord and gained the skill Raphael, he can adapt and evolve to a higher degree such as covering the greatest "elemental weakness" of a monster by analyzing Melt Slash, making any Absolute Defense impervious to Spirit Particle attacks and by extension to most Holy-magic attacks that are usually very effective against monsters and are basically the "anti-magicule"), Greatly Enhanced Analytical Prediction (Raphael is capable of giving Rimuru the best outcome with its calculation such as letting Clayman "awakened" so that he can consume his attacks to make up for his consumed magicule and also make Rimuru deserving of his new title as the new Demon Lord in front of the current Demon Lords by beating Clayman. Raphael let Rimuru sacrifice Beelzebub so that Raphael can analyze Melt Slash which grants Rimuru access to Spirit Particle much to Rimuru's suprise. Furthermore, Rimuru has a skill called "Predict Future Attack" which allows him to predict his opponents future attack by seeing all possible paths their attacks can go. The terrifying property of this skill is not its ability to predict, but that whatever it predicts is destined to happen), Stamina Drain (Rimuru can drain their stamina by sucking the magicule out of his opponents with Beelzebuth), Intangibility (Spiritual Life-form), Power Mimicry (Can analyze and learn his opponents abilities), Resurrection (With the Secret Art of Revival, Rimuru can create a fully new soul resurrect people which requires a massive amount of magical energy, along with an unimaginable amount of force to control it), Enhanced Space-Time Manipulation (Spirit Particle attacks can move through the barrier of space and time. It can penetrate Rimuru's Absolute Defense which severs space between both sides if the attack isn't decoded), With Food Chain he can potentially gain other abilities such as: Fate Manipulation and Reality Warping (Can overwrite outcomes and results), Life Manipulation, Death Manipulation and Subjective Reality (Can intertwine reality with what happens in his imaginary world and the person's life and death will be within their grip), Illusion Creation, Attack Reflection, Clairvoyance, Non-Physical Interaction (Can interact with abstract things such as skills), Hundreds of other abilities

Attack Potency: Large Mountain level+ (Can harm Orc Disaster Geld, who tanked a pinpointed version of Ranga's Death Storm. Became far stronger after absorbing Orc Disaster Geld and Charybdis to the point he can one shot Special A rank monsters comparable to Geld such as the Sky Dragon. Is a demon lord class individual and thus superior to Beretta and those comparable to him; Beretta is twice as strong as the Elemental Colossus who is stronger than a Special A class monsters such as the Sky Dragon, Charybdis and Orc Disaster Geld), Gluttony will eventually become Planet level (Rimuru can integrate Gluttony with his clone that can grow large enough to devour a planet) | Island level (Over 10x stronger than before), Beelzebub will eventually become Planet level (Beelzebub, Lord of Gluttony is a combination of Gluttony and Merciless. Rimuru should be able to integrate Beelzebub into one of his clone that can grow large enough to devour a planet)

Speed: Relativistic (Comparable to Shizue who dodged his Black Lightning which moves faster than the speed of light. Comparable to Hakurou whom he could barely perceive with his Magic Sense, which observes how light and sound waves disturb the nearby particles of magic), Speed of Light with Megiddo (Can use over a thousand or so droplets of water as convex lenses which gather sunlight honing it into thin rays of light and refracting it against the mirrorlike droplets. This focuses all the light upon a single point, where it was then further condensed by the convex-lens droplets down below Rimuru before being channeled toward its target at the speed of light), FTL attack speed with Black Lightning (Originally one of Veldora's strongest skills, it moves faster than the speed of light) | FTL (Despite having Magic Sense which observes how light and sound waves disturb the nearby particles of magic, then use that information to calculate how the area around the user looks and sounds, Hinata's battle with Rimuru was beyond Fritz’s understanding. Magic Sense was meaningless in interpreting their battle, as their speed exceeded the processing power of the human brain), Massively FTL+ perception speed with Mind Accelerate (Rimuru can accelerate his perception speed a million times where a second under the skill is equal to two hundred and seventy-seven hours and it felt like time has stopped. Even the fanciest of spells could be pulled off in less than a day, and Rimuru can cast them in less than a tenth of a second. If the spell he's trying to cast is instant, he can cast several of them at the same time)

Lifting Strength: Unknown, Class M with Sticky Steel Thread (Can endure the weight of over a 1000 tons)

Striking Strength: Large Mountain Class+ | Island Class

Durability: Large Mountain level+, Difficult to harm due to his Multilayer barriers that surrounds him which is imbued with all of his resistances resulting in doubling the resistance's effects and if it gets destroyed, it gets recreated immediately| Island level, Difficult to harm due to his Multilayer barriers that provides Absolute Defense which severs space from both sides that is imbued with Rimuru's resistances resulting in doubling the resistance's effect and if it gets destroyed, it gets recreated immediately

Stamina: Physically limitless, as a Slime he doesn't get tired or need to sleep.

Range: Tens of Kilometers | Tens of Kilometers

Standard Equipment: Anti-Magic Mask, Magic Coat, Katana, Demon Lord's Ring

Intelligence: Extraordinary Genius (Rimuru/Great Sage can analyze all non-concealed phenomenon, estimate the chances of him succeeding at any task, and record and accurately copy the contents of entire books to his mind within seconds. These books would take even experts of magic lifetimes to learn. Hence, his knowledge in the field of magic and magic science surpassed expert and Rimuru is one of the smartest characters in his world. He understood the concept of Magic Researcher, a complicated Golem built with spirit magic, works physically which is something that the best of mind of Dwarfs and the elves couldn't do and had to give up on the project that was solved by fairies and Ramiris. Rimuru was able to make a much better improvement to Golem's concept with his creation that served as a basis for Beretta's body where his methodology far outclassed what was made by the fairies. Rimuru did calculate with the help of Great Sage all the light positions requirements for Megiddo's attack that required processing several hundred thousand floating water droplets as one of the main variables he uses for his attack. From the creation of Megiddo, Rimuru created a new field of magic called physic magic. The calculations and creation were under extreme pressure. Great Sage can predict the future from calculations alone) | Extraordinary Genius (Far smarter than before. Rimuru/Raphael's intelligence is beyond the realm of mortal intelligence and has the processing power to out-compute a quantum computer easily, and is more economic and precise than a supercomputer. Raphael is far more cunning and always gives Rimuru the best outcome in a given scenario. It’s capable of planning ahead of time and will warn Rimuru to the events that are taking place even if they're from unknown places)

[Extra Skills are] Skills with power and efficiency magnitudes higher than those of Common Skills.
~ Great Sage, anime episode 1
  • Dark Thunder
  • Dark Flame
  • Sticky Steel Thread
  • Ultraspeed Regeneration
  • Sense Soundwave: Evolved form of Skill Ultrasonic Waves, which can release ultrasonic sound waves that might bewilder enemies or cause them to faint as well as pinpoint the user's location and that of others. Also, this evolved form enables the user to sense soundwaves directly.
  • Shadow Motion: Allows to move within shadows, and very quickly move to people and also places the user had been to before. To use it the user still has to move through the shadows to the destination but is not hindered by any obstacles within the shadows.
  • Spatial Motion: Allows the user to be able to transport himself to a place he has visited before. It usually takes several minutes to connect spaces, but Spatial Motion is capable to have the user escape from Ramiris' Labyrinth ability.
  • Dark Flame: Enables the user to create dark flames which can stop regeneration. Can be freely controlled and even shot like bullets at enemies with temperatures surpassing 1400°C.
    • Using this ability, Rimuru stopped the Orc Disaster from regenerating his arm, forcing him to sever the part of his arm with the flame to regenerate.
  • Steel Strength: Enhances muscular strength when used.
  • Strengthen Body: Enhances the body in general when used.
  • Ranged Barrier: Creates a Barrier strong enough to withstand a Water Blade by itself. When infused with a fire- or heat-based tolerance, it becomes able to seal thermal energy within with a maximum range of 100 meters, and prevents any from leaking.
  • Multilayer Barrier: Creates a Barrier, consisting of several thin layers of Ranged Barrier, with each layer having one of the tolerance-type Skill effects each and unless deliberately strengthened by magicules, the energy consumption is less than Rimuru's natural magicule recovery rate, allowing him to have Multilayer Barrier permanently active. If broken it gets recreated immediately.
  • Keen Smell: Provides a strong sense of smell when used.
  • Sense Heat Source: Identifies any heat reactions in the local area. Not affected by any concealing effects.
  • Ultraspeed Regeneration: A superior version of Self-Regeneration. It's capable of quickly regenerating the body to its default state. If imbued into magical clothes or armor, it grants a self-repair function that enables a complete recovery of the clothing even "from scratch".
  • Sticky Steel Thread: Grants the ability to create and control threads of varying sizes with properties of stickiness and/or robustness. Since the thread is made from the user's own body, the thread possesses all Tolerance-type Skills of the user.
  • Universal Shapeshift: Allows any parts of the body to be transformed into any parts of the bodies of species that the user can transform into. Multiple such partial mimicries, even of different species at the same time, is possible.
  • Control Particles: Allows the user to be able to control the paths of other molecules in the air by working the magicules in the surroundings, making it possible to, among other things, create heat or electricity from the resulting friction. Manipulating water or wind is also possible.
  • Replication: Can create clones of the user that can be completely controlled by the user at real time within a kilometer of the user. In Rimuru's case, he can only create one clone, but that clone can use all his Skills aside from the Unique Skills and has strength proportional to the amount of magicules invested in that particular clone. Rimuru can give the clone simple commands and can receive visual information from it even beyond the 1 kilometer radius.
  • Magic Aura: An Extra Skill that combines Magic and Arts. Lets the user easily add magical effects to attacks with the user's own aura allowing the user to harm beings like spiritual life-forms that have no physical body.
  • Magic Interference: Causes any magicules within a thousand-foot radius of the user to go haywire. With this ability, the effects of all Magic are greatly reduced and it nullifies any sort of flight-based Magic or Aura techniques.
  • Control Gravity: Enables the user to control the gravity on themselves, making high-speed flight possible.
  • Control Magic: Created from pairing up Control Particles and Magic Interference. It grants superior control over magicules to the point of being able to directly interfere with - and possibly even take control of - the Magic of someone else.
  • Secret Art of Revival: A Skill that created a fully new soul for its target—a level below straight-up raising the dead. If this failed, the targets would be totally unlike how they were before death, transforming into uncontrollable beasts. The act was so difficult that even losing some memories and knowledge in the process was considered a great success.
    • The Secret Art of Revival had to be woven using arcane wisdom that humankind couldn’t even begin to understand. It naturally required a massive amount of magical energy, along with an unimaginable amount of force to control it. Even a high-level magic-born couldn’t do that. Only demons, with their knowledge of controlling souls, could handle the job, and even then only a handful of higher-level demons.

There are times when the mold of one's mind and its powerful wishes give shape to skills. This is the nature of what we call "Unique Skills". The process is impossible without a mighty soul, but among such beings some can even have two or three of them. [...] A Unique Skill is the shape of the mind itself.

Originally part of Unique Skill Predator which could only affect close-range targets, but Glutton adds the property of being able to use Predation at a range of tens of meters.
  • Stomach: Stores the predated target. Can also store materials created via Analysis. Items stored in the user's stomach are unaffected by time. Originally part of Unique Skill Predator.
  • Mimicry: Reproduces the form and Skills of absorbed targets. Only available once the target has been Analyzed. Originally most intrinsic Skills gained from a predated species could only be used at full capacity by taking the form of said species, but Universal Shapeshift negates that issue. Originally part of Unique Skill Predator.
  • Isolation: Stores harmful effects incapable of being analyzed, neutralizing them and breaking them down into magical force. Originally part of Unique Skill Predator.
  • Rot: Performs Rot on the target, decomposing it if it is organic. Monster corpses partially absorbed in this manner will reward the user with part of the monster’s skills. This effect is imbued into Predation.


Merciless: The ability to seize the souls of anyone begging for their lives, seeking help from the user, retreating, or running away. Once the condition is met, the soul can be seized at any time afterward across even very long distances instantly and the user gets informed about any malicious thoughts by the target immediately. The souls of the recently killed can also be seized.


Ultimate skills, as they’re called, are devices to grant access to the ultimate principles of this world. That is why, in order to combat against an ultimate skill, one must employ ultimate skill as well.
~ Guy Crimson, light novel vol. 6

Raphael, Lord of Wisdom: An ultimate skill gained after evolving his unique skill Great Sage by fusing it with his unique skill Deviant. It gives the following abilities:

  • Mind Accelerate: Lets Rimuru extend his rate of thinking by up to a million times.
  • Analyze and Assess: Analyzes and assesses the target.
  • Parallel Operation: Operates on any matter the user wishes to analyze, separating it from the regular thought process. Any process under Parallel Operation is affected by Mind Accelerate and therefore sped up by a million times.
  • Cast Cancel: Annuls the casting period required when using Magic, etc.
  • All of Creation: Provides full coverage of all non-concealed phenomenons.
  • Synthesize: Transforms two differing targets into a single object.
  • Separate: Release the properties inherent to the target and make it into a separate object. (The original object may disappear if it has no physical form)


Beelzebub, Lord of Gluttony: An ultimate skill gained after unique skill Glutton consumed unique skill Merciless. It gives the following abilities:

  • Predation: Takes the target into the user's body. Lesser chance of success if the target has its own consciousness. Can be targeted on organic, inorganic and non-physical objects (e.g. spiritual life-forms like Spirits and Demons), as well as Skills, Magic and Arts and any projectile-type attacks of the aforementioned categories. Compared to its Unique Skill counterpart it has been improved and can now reach a range of kilometers and even consume space itself.
  • Stomach: Stores the predated target. Can also store materials created via Analysis. Items stored in the user's stomach are unaffected by time. The amount of space has been enlarged compared to its Unique Skill version.
  • Mimicry: Reproduces the form and Skills of absorbed targets. Only available once the target has been Analyzed. Originally most intrinsic Skills gained from a predated species could only be used at full capacity by taking the form of said species, but Universal Shapeshift negates that issue.
  • Isolation: Stores harmful effects incapable of being analyzed, neutralizing them and breaking them down into magical force.
  • Rot: Performs Rot on the target, decomposing it if it is organic. Monster corpses partially absorbed in this manner will reward the user with part of the monster’s skills. This effect is imbued into Predation.

Veldora, Lord of Storm: An ultimate skill gained after consuming the remains of Veldora in his stomach and analyzing them. It gives the following abilities:

  • Summon Storm Dragon: An ability that calls forth Veldora in his dragon form.
  • Restore Storm Dragon: An ability that copies Veldora’s memories into his own mind. In other words, if Veldora dies for some reason, he can replace him or, to put it another way, the “real” Veldora would reside within his own soul.
  • Storm Magic: An ability which grants him access to Death-Calling Wind, Dark Lightning, and Storm of Destruction, all of which are incredibly powerful spells.

  • Unlimited Imprisonment: Entombs the target in a complex number of spatial dimensions.

  • Perfect Memory: An extra skill which can store his memories in his astral body.
  • Chef: A unique skill which is capable of overwriting phenomenon, laws, results and outcomes.
  • Generalissimo: A unique skill specialized in controlling one’s power output. His power will not go out of control no matter how much strength he puts into it. The secret lies within 「Prediction Analysis」, an ability which can completely analyze the flow of one’s strength and remove inefficiencies from it. Not only is it a great skill for personal combat, it is also useful in leading army. By treating the army’s movements as a flow of power, it can act as something similar to a predicting skill to determine the outcome of a situation. As soon as our army is in disadvantage, he can motion the army to alter the attack plan.
  • Tempter: Diablo's unique skill which he can use to achieve complete dominance over whoever pledges loyalty to him. He can immediately be aware of if anyone under his ability has thoughts of betraying him, and has control over their life and death. Tempter deprives his dominated subjects of their souls when they die.
  • World of Temptation: One of the abilities under his Unique Skill Tempter. It originally would have a direct impact on the targets’ consciousness and affect their psyche, however, Diablo made this ability even more powerful. He can materialize the imaginary world where he holds the absolute authority. Once sent to that world, even the life and death of the targets would be in Diablo’s grip. He can even intertwine the things happening in his imaginary world with what happens in the real world through Reality Exchange.
  • Collapsing World: An ability which collapses his World of Temptation, and sucks in those affected by it, devouring their despair.
  • Danger Detection: A skill which allows the user to sense the atmosphere to detect danger.
  • Heavengaze: An extra skill which gives him a better sense of the magic around him, from the flow of magicules to the extent of its force, than even Magic Sense could allow.
  • Control Wind: Extra Skill that allows the user to be able to control air currents by working the magicules in the surroundings, making it possible to generate wind or even storms. Also makes it possible to shoot pressurized wind bolts.
  • Death Storm: An attack move that combines Control Wind and Dark Lightning to create a thunderstorm.
    • Area of Effect Death Storm: Forms tornados from the thunderstorm in a large area, sweeping weaker enemies off their feet hundreds of meters into the air, where they then get vaporized by Dark Lightning.
    • Dark Lightning Death Storm: Focuses the entire might of the thunderstorm into a single Dark Lightning bolt that deals devastating damage to a single target.
  • Observing Eyes: Extra Skills which allows its user to detect any minute changes of magicules in the atmosphere.
  • Secret Inspector: A unique skill which grants him the effect of One Hit Kill by using tens of thousands of Sticky Steel Thread to chop his enemies into pieces. It won’t matter even if the enemies are half spiritual life form such as undead. His technique can cut through and kill spiritual beings.
  • Monster Puppet String: A secret move that lets the user fully control monsters that lack intelligence by using a special bewitching string to tap into the neural network which carries messages to the brain, and replace them with fabricated orders.
  • Demonwire Bind: An attack developed by Soei to bind his opponents with Sticky Steel Threads.
  • Case Cannon: The Case Cannon scabbard can be used to fire 2cm large iron projectiles like a coilgun.
  • Illusory Magic: A mystic art, which allows him to be able to cast various spells such as creating a wall of flames put his enemies to sleep or confuse his enemies senses.
  • Holy Blessing: An ability which can purify and grant salvation to the cursed dead.
  • Overdrive: An ability achieved by using his unique skill Analysis to carry out Control Laws. It causes the magicules gathered by his opponents to go out of control.
  • Creator: A unique skill which makes him able to create unique magic.

It embarrasses me to say it, but the Orc Lords of the past have all been defeated by human efforts. Ravenous is a powerful Unique Skill, no doubt about it, but it works only by seizing the powers of those the Orc Lord defeats. While monsters may have Intrinsic Skills or other Magic-oriented effects an Orc Lord can take for itself, humans bear none of that. They bear Arts, not Skills, and those are strictly the fruits of practice and effort. That’s what enables a human nation, or band of nations, to defeat such a threat.
~ Shuna, LN vol. 2
  • Battlewill: Transforms the Aura of the user into Fighting Spirit, which enhances the user's physical form. This enhancement is independent from Skills-based enhancements, so Skill-based enhancements can be used alongside Battlewill.
  • Modelwill: Imbues an object with Aura or magicules to enhance it. Can also be shot as very versatile projectiles, being able to, among other things, coat a Magic- or Skill-attack within, which can either be used as a surprise attack, or shield the attack from any anti-magic Skills like Magic Interference.
  • Formhide: An art which forces his opponent to lose sight of him.


  • Water Blade
  • Hell Flare
  • Flare Circle
  • Water Blade: Originally a Common Skill, was integrated into Control Water which was then also integrated into Control Particles. Creates a highly pressurized blade of water. Fast enough to leave afterimages.
  • Flare Circle: An attack move that combines Rimuru's Ranged Barrier with a flame-generating magic circle and Flame Transformation (now integrated into Dark Flames), it seals the target in a boundary that prevents thermal energy from leaking out, and then burns the opponent alongside all the oxygen within the barrier. Any living thing that breathes air without having Resist Flame Attack (or better), or some other means of defense, will perish within it.
  • God’s Wrath (Megiddo): A skill which uses Elemental Magic to form multiple very large magnifying-glass water constructs in the air. This focus the energy of the sun into a devastating heat beam capable of reaching thousands of degrees. The constructs disintegrate after use, but the energy needed to replace and maintain them is very little. Because they are clear, thin lenses of suspended water, the constructs are almost impossible to see. The size and number of lenses can be changed to varying effects: decimating 1000 armored soldiers in a single shot to killing a single target instantly and without sound. By using Water magic to create droplets of water in the shape of convex lenses in the sky, Rimuru condenses sunlight to the point where it becomes a massive laser beam which is similar to using magnifying glass. Due to the low requirements of water magic, the water droplets can continually be replaced when they evaporate. The Massive energy beam is a physical phenomenon, and therefore cannot be blocked by magic disrupting barriers.
  • Disintegration: The ultimate in targeted, destructive magic, which emits flashes of white light as it pours from Hinata’s hands. It moves almost at light speed, as its holy power makes cells and souls vanish without a trace.
  • Melt Slash: An ability which infuses his strongest magic, Disintegration with his sword art. Rimuru then turns into a beam of light, and quickly approaches her target. It has properties of eliminating evil meaning it is effective against monsters.

  • Icicle Lance: Magic which creates multiple ice pillars which he fires at his opponents.
  • Warp Portal: A type of elemental magic which allows the caster to draw the same series of symbols at the entrance and exit. These symbols worked strictly as pairs, so stepping into a Portal would always bring you to the same destination.
  • Anti-Magic Area: Magic which is formed by rewriting the laws of the world to create a barrier which prevents the usage of magic.
  • Summoning Magic: Magic which can be used to summon other beings such as spirits or demons.

  • Great Sage: Prevents Rimuru's deep psyche from being interfered with, which blocks attempts to read his mind or memories.
  • Otherworld-Reincarnator: Has a strong soul which allowed Rimuru to survive the crossing between worlds with only his soul. Possesses multiple Unique Skills which are the shape of the mind itself and are inscribed into the soul, so they require a strong soul for the user to hold them, even more so with with multiple Unique Skills.
