Episode 30

A Sorcerer (魔道師, Madoushi) is a humanoid being with the ability to manipulate supernatural forces much like their female counterparts, the Witch.[1]


Characteristics & Appearance

Not much is known about the nature of sorcerers. Much like witches, their appearance is just like that of a human's.[2] Whilst Witches are all female, Sorcerers seem to all be male practitioners of Magic. Sorcerers also shares the same system in which they utilize mantras. However, it seems that just like the witches, not all individuals require chanting.[3][4]

View on Sorcerers

Among Witches, the view on Sorcerers shows some level of reverence in their magic prowess, as observed when Eruka Frog's incantation on performing Magic Calculation pay respect to Rerené Descartes[5] and when Death himself assumes that Witches themselves are familiar with extremely powerful Sorcerer items such as the Book of Eibon.[6]

Non-Witches hold a far more skeptical view on Sorcerers, indicated when Death the Kid considered Eibon to be just another "villainous scum" just from being introduced to a Demon Tool he created.[7]


Although many Sorcerers can display a variety of different abilities depending on their animal theme (or lack thereof) and making, Sorcerers tend to have common abilities such as:

A Sorcerer performing Magic.

  • Magic (魔法, Mahō): Sorcerers are known to be powerful manipulator of the nearly limitless energy known as Magic, much like their counterpart the female Witch.[1] This, coupled with their immense knowledge of magic, means that they can create things such as Demon Tools,[1] Demon Books, and can create even artificial life in the form of Demon Tool Soldiers.[8]
  • Longevity: Also much like their female counterparts, Sorcerers can live far longer then humans, being capable of living up to centuries old as far as eight hundred years.[9]
