Protecting the powerless is simply a soldier's duty!
~ Wave


Wave is a former member of Imperial Navy and a member of the Jaegers under General Esdeath's command. Armed with the Teigu Grand Chariot, he loyally defends the Empire and his comrades while remaining largely unaware of the country's darkest aspects, growing especially close to Kurome in the process.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Carnage Incarnate: Grand Chariot (修羅化身 グランシャリオ Shura Kesshin: Guran Shario) is an Armor-type Teigu that is nearly identical to Incursio, although its key is a black short sword with a handguard and a chain link tassel on the hilt. When released, it takes the form of black, full-body armor with a phantasmagoric defensive film in place of Incursio's more traditional cape. The armor boosts the users strength and speed.
    • Grand Fall (グランドフォール Gurando Fōru): User leaps into the higher place than target by using flight ability and performs a drop-kick on the target which causes high damage. User can increase the strength and the speed of this move by creating two floating matters, each consisting of four dark petals shaped like diamonds.
    • Grand Fall Flügel ("Wing" in German): Similar to the standard Grand Fall, Wave used this attack against Tatsumi after equipping Run's Mastema along with his armor, drastically increasing the attack's power.
  • Thousand-Mile Flight: Mastema is a Teigu that takes the form of two floating discs that sprout wings. It was used by Run and is currently owned by Wave. It gives the user the ability to fly for a limited amount of time and gives good maneuverability in the sky.
    • Feather Projectiles: The only use besides its flight that we've seen Wave use. Feathers come off the wings and float and can be used to shoot through the heads of enemies or destroy projectiles like Shikoutazer's.
    • God's Wings (神の羽根, Kami no Hane): The trump card of Mastema, which gives the wings the ability to reflect an opponent's attacks. When used, the disks split into segments and the wings turn into which appears to be ethereal substance, which allows them to be shaped into a protective shield. This trump card can also counteract Mastema's weakness in close range. Wave has not been shown to use this ability as of yet.
  • Wave is also a formidable swordsman and uses his sword more than his Teigu. Esdeath has said that his strength is perfect, thanks to having a good teacher. He is skilled in hand-to-hand combat as well, and defeated Syura in an unarmed duel despite it being the specialty of the latter.
  • Wave himself states his skill to be at least on par with Tatsumi, although the two have not yet had a proper battle. While he is aware of dangerous creatures inhabiting the ocean, he was caught off guard by creatures living in the mountains, likely due to his lack of first-hand experience in dealing with them at the time.
  • It is also worth noting that he is the only one in the series who managed to land a clean, direct and powerful blow to Akame.
  • Worth noting he is the only other character aside from Esdeath to fight three Teigu users at the same time and referred to as a force of nature by the three.
