Dragon Slayer Magic is an ancient form of magic created by Dragons to combat one another. In order to swing the tide of the war in favour of the dragons that supported humans, they taught some humans how to use the magic. Centuries on and it has become possible for humans to learn the magic by implanting a Dragon Lacrima into their body.


As the name suggests, Dragon Slayer Magic is a form of magic used to slay dragons. It is the only form of magic known to be capable to injure, let alone kill a dragon.

Dragon Slayer Magic utilises an individual element in order for it to be used, including traditional elements such as fire, water, and rock, as well as more abstract concepts such as bone, portal, and white for attacking, defending and/or supporting.

There are several methods known for individuals to learn dragon slayer magic. Dragons are born with their respective magic as evidenced by Nippy knowing how to use Plasma Dragon Slayer Magic only at a few months old. Humans however can use various methods to learn the magic. The traditional methods for humans to learn the magic are to either be taught by a dragon; the First Generation, have a Dragon Lacrima implanted into their body; the Second Generation, or finally to have both; the Third Generation.

Alternatively, humans can learn dragon slayer magic via the usage of other magics; Dragon Soul Absorption Magic[2] or Skeleton Key[1].


Scattered across the continent of Ishgar are various monuments dedicated to Dragon Slayer Magic. These monuments contain information about practicing the magic as well as the history of Dragons. As such, it is possible for Dragon Slayers to learn new, advanced level spells that they previously were unaware of, and in some instances are capable of gaining a second element.

As a result of Lelouch Lamperouge's three year journey, he had learned every conceivable element a dragon, and subsequently a dragon slayer, can possess, on top of the secret arts he learned.

Dual Element Modes

Dragon Slayers have the potential to gain a second element once they have become strong enough to do so. If they attempt to do so before they are ready, they can make themselves very ill in the process without gaining a second element.

However, eating a second element is not the only means by which a dragon slayer can attain a second element. It is possible for a dragon slayer to develop a dual mode if they are infected by a foreign agent, such as lycanthropy.
