The night before their Supplementary Class Lessons Maka and Soul faced off against Rasputin. Maka managed to deal the Evil human a kick that sent him crashing through a church window, slamming him onto the floor inside the building. As Maka readied her next attack, Soul claimed that Rasputin's soul was now his. Despite Rasputin commenting "Don't waste your time!! Not even bullets have any effect on me!!",[4] Maka, being a Scythe Meister, and Soul made quick work of Rasputin, slicing him in half. His soul was then devoured by Soul.[1]

Media AppearanceEdit

Soul Eater: Monotone PrincesEdit

  • HP: 700

Raputin appears as one of the bosses fought as part of the Kishin Egg quest line and is recommended to encounter after achieving Level 6. The best strategy is to dodge his "Hip Attack" and immediately attack him thereafter. Every few hits staggers Rasputin and can leave him open for a Soul Resonance attack.

TriviaEdit

  • Rasputin may have been a reference to the Rasputin who manipulated Tsar Nicholas II because the Bolsheviks tried to kill Rasputin in several ways including being shot several times. Rasputin mentioned that bullets was ineffective against him.
