About Crona's Gender:

In episode 45, after Crona risked his/her life to save Maka, Stein and Medusa both refer to Crona as a "he". I have heard "he" mentioned multiple times, but never one "she". 15:17, March 27, 2013 (UTC)

crona is a boy and he super adorable!!!!

-You are referring to an English translation; There is a lack of he / her in Japanese

Plus Crona wanted to play with Makas hair when they first met which only a guy would like to do.

I kinda figured "it" was both male or female or that "it" is genderless, as according to Ohkubo, he doesn't know or care about what gender Crona is, so I guess it is safe to assume that it doesn't have one and is whatever, as those genderless tend to act either feminine or masculine at different times but never actually hint--Naruto fan 6 (talk) 19:08, July 25, 2013 (UTC)Nfan 6

A better insight on the reality behind Crona

Crona's gender is suppose to be ambiguous or unknown. However, due to the fixation the English company had on dubbing the product after its purchase, the manga decided to go female, while the English Company (Funimation) went free to take a different route and chose male. Manga has priority over anime, so you should always stick with what the manga says unless it differs in the Japanese original material, considerably. Moreover, the pronoun "he" is sometimes used for ambiguous characters who have yet been determined as he or she. Take in religion, God. God is refer to as a "he," but is not a male. The use of the word "he" like with the word "guy" can mean male or female, while "she" implicitly means only female. The reason why Funimation choose this is to allow the gender to remain ambiguous as done in the Japanese. Nevertheless, as Western society differs extraordinarily from the Japanese as we don't like ambiguity as much and prefer things confirmed. It is quite clear that the manga sought to get the actual answer from the Japanese and the Japanese author for the series confirmed it was actually a girl, but the fact Crona was center of so much abuse (of such was made often as comical jokes) and was notably stronger than most of the male characters that it might cut sales if it was made quite clear about Crona's gender. So the reason why Crona perhaps was left to be shown as ambiguous in her gender was to prevent a fall in sales. It was a market tactic. After all, people who read the English manga are less likely to care about Crona's gender than people who watch the anime (kids and their parents) or people who still live in the static conservative mentality of how to view girls and boys.

Now what is funny is that it is on Toonami during the very late part of the day. So who would watch such stuff so late as a child is rather bizarre. Nevertheless, it could easily turn off young adults who are less liberal or open to such a confirmation like their Japanese counterparts when revealed such about Crona's actual identity as a girl.

Besides if Crona was a boy, Medusa as the horrible person she was would be trying to force him to do what she wants out of her own perversion and sexual seduction. If Crona is a girl, Medusa wouldn't hold the same incentive in mind and might even feel more disgusted by her child, more willing to punish Crona, simply by being a girl.

Remember this is also a Japanese production and in Asia, boys are preferred over girls even in the eyes of their mothers. So it makes more sense for Crona to be a girl.

n the anime+Manga, Crona has notably a chest, which is more apparent in the manga. In the anime, its just BARELY larger than DTK's. But in the manga Crona later develops an actual bust.

Crona's finger length may be the equivalent to a heterosexual man, but at the same time, can qualify with being a homosexual women. And Ragnarok's perverted interest in girls with busts and such could have made Crona homosexual, if your actually thinking that s/he isn't socially anxietic
Oh, and I forgot to add-Crona is CLEARLY a victim social anxiety . Did you know that is is more likely for a women to be affected than a man? 
Referring Crona as a 'he' doesn't automatically equal a man. According to the Japanese translation, they refereed Crona as a pronoun that can qualify for a man AND woman. They were wanting the audience to do the same. However, in English, you don't necessarily refer a human as 'it', for that is potentially offensive, and face it, most people who can't figure out an animal's gender just label it as a he in the first place. 
Crona has no masculine features, hermaphrodite or not. A man would not be born with a feminine set of hips if there was nothing inside to sustain the shape. Crona in anime+Manga has notably shaped hips, possibly possessing female reproduction organs inside, which explain her size and shape.

Ragnarok being male doesn't make Crona one as well, because blood doesn't carry gender cells or anything gender relevant

In reality, it doesn't matter. The author has not made a clear statement on what Crona is and he is the author. In a interview, he stated himself he didn't know and doesnt care(Ill see If I can find that article if needs be). The anime has referred to Crona as a male due to a policy. And the manga's translation cannot be accounted for, as they're not 100% translated correctly and as far as I know, I haven't met anyone who has read the entire Japanese manga and speaks English well enough to tell me the gender. As far as we known to this point, the gender of Crona is still ambiguous.Jharis10 (talk) 23:10, August 4, 2013 (UTC)

Please do not change Crona's Gender

If you even decide to do so, don't! Crona gender has not been specified. Everyone has their own theories or headcannons! But fact is this: unless youre Okubo, your theory isnt correct! It's never been clearly stated nor has the author of Soul Eater even wanted to elaborate on it. Cause he doesn't really know himself. Until conclusive evidence from the Author or anything from the Soul Eater manga/show has been stated(Not a big chance seeing as it's finished), Crona will forever be remained "Unknown".

Crona Is Female with proof

Ok Clearing this up for everyone CRONA IS A FEMALE

Now for the explanation: at a very young age crona had her blood replaced with the black blood (Ragnarok) Ragnarok is a boy together crona and ragnarok make up one entity. for the majority of crona's life ragnarok is the dominate half of the entity which is why see seems like a guy at first, but when makas like hey yo lets be friends crona AFTER she defeated RAGNAROK THE MALE HALF (black blood/ madness/ whatever you want to call it) RAGNAROK gets smaller like way smaller signifying that he is no longer the dominate half of the entity anymore, and what happens then? Crona gets all emotional and feminine then if you still had problems understanding that crona was female ragnarok started sexually harassing crona (Japanese people are super weird amirite?). After the anime came out and people still had trouble telling weather crona was male or female they started putting real obvious things pointing twords crona being female in the manga, BUT insted of being like OOOOHHH crona is a GIRL people were like wow that must mean that crona is a girl in the manga but a guy in the anime. FALSE THAT IS NOT TRUE CRONA IS FEMALE IN BOTH THE MANGA AND THE ANIME. (sorry for the shitty grammar and stuff its just this is like the millionth time ive explained this to people)

File:Cronas a girl.jpg

Your "proof" just sounds like sterotyping. Male characters can get "all emotional and feminine". Men can also be sexually harassed by other men and women, it's not limited to just women. I, for one, am thoroughly unconvinced.Kurai the Tsukikage (talk) 13:23, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

Im with Kurai on that matter. You presented NO PROOF whatsoever in that long and flawed paragraph on Crona's gender. There's no sourcing either! You can't make a discussion and give me indication of the chapter or episode it happened. Ragnarok harasses people period. Male or female it seems. That's not convincing me at all. You're the 10000th person to come up with more "proof" on this matter. That's speculation. Where's your proof? When was this said? Who traslated it? Who dubbed it? There's none of that. However, you also went and changed the gender, despite knowing the fact that a discussion must take place and have CONFIRMATION from someone noteworthy on the wikia such as an Admin like myself. Otherwise, why make this discussion first?
Not only am I reverting that, you're being blocked for the next 2 weeks(You're normally suppose to get banned but I'm being nice.). There's no changing Crona's gender on this wikia without actual evidence, sourcing, and maybe a much better written paragraph low with spelling and gramatical errors. This matter has been debated for years and this wikia has resolved to "being unknown until further notice." Speculation is hardly evidence. Also, males can be feminine-like. That's nothing new.
In any case, the push for Crona being a female is denied once again. When the block expires, I do not want to see any sort of mishaps from you concerning or relating to this in the near future or more severe actions will be taken. I'm sorry If this seems hard but people have tried this matter and frankly, the administration before and now are getting sick of it. Me included. Let this be a note to anyone else reading this: Do NOT change Chrona's gender until further notice and you present CLEAR and LEGITAMANTE evidence JayAaerow Talk 21:07, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

Crona X Maka

So based off what I have read about the ending, we won't see Crona ever again? Because that is just wrong because (whatever gender Crona is) Maka was made to be with Crona! I mean they are perfect for each other! So who here believes that they should have ended the storyline with them getting married (or something around that line of Crona possibly returning).

  • In my honest opinon, no. But that's beside the point. The Talk Pages are not for discussing your favorite ships. They're there to talk over the article about the said character. The Forums are for that. Specifically, the "Death Cafe" portion. Please use that in the future when discussing your Shippings. :) Book of Eibon JayAaerow Talk Book of Eibon 06:18, January 30, 2014 (UTC)

Crona is a female!

Crona is a female. In Episode 39 of the anime, Soul refers to Crona as "she". Also in the manga, Crona's a girl. 

                                                                                                                                                 - Wikimandy653 (talk) 13:06, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

They've also referred to Crona as a guy in both, so...yeah. Kurai the Tsukikage (talk) 13:25, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

Corrected spelling/grammar


If you don't know what someone's gender identity is, please use "their/they" instead of "she/he". As a genderfluid [1] identifying individual myself, it's honestly hurtful to use "she/he" as the pronoun rather than the easy to use "their/they". I know that this is just a manga/anime character but it's rather annoying to see people just either assume what the gender is or just use "she/he"; as if there were only two genders to identify as[2].

And, honestly, who cares what Crona's gender is. If Crona wanted people to know what they identify as, they would have told someone. Your arguing is pretty useless becasue the only one who knows what gender Crona is is the writer themself.

Maybe the writer wanted Crona to be androgynous [3] and have them stay that way.

Who knows?

Flamingbears21 (talk) 09:33, July 22, 2014 (UTC) Genderfluid Identifying Human

Crona's gender is unknown. For now, all we know is that Crona is non-binary (is not male or female).

Atsushi Okubo has said himself that he doesn't know and will not reveal Crona's true gender (many people have said this but there is no source), so right now they're non-binary. In Japanese, they do not refer to Crona by using gendered pronouns (they don't say 'he' or 'she' in reference to Crona). They instead use gender neutral pronouns (like in English, singular 'they'). The FUNimation ADR director, Zach Bolton, states in episode 7's dub commentary that because of this, they had to choose a pronoun because it's rude to call someone an 'it' and using 'they' can be confusing. He says that they decided on male pronouns, though it does not mean Crona's gender is male. Same goes with most manga translators - except they tend to use 'she' more often than 'he'. So Crona does not have a (revealed) gender and probably never will. SBTrulz (talk) 18:26, August 17, 2014 (UTC)SBTrulz

Crona/Gallery page

Question regarding the gallery page from Crona, can someone upload Crona's death scene from episode #45 from the Anime? FinnXMarcy (talk) 00:05, November 29, 2014 (UTC)

Relationship page

We need to have the relationship page added in the main profile page = Crona/Relationships. FinnXMarcy (talk) 00:43, February 6, 2015 (UTC)

Crona is a Boy (with Proof)


I saw video proof, apperenly Crona is a boy!! 

Watch it here:

Request: Add soul(s) to Appearance (cannot edit due to locked page)

I want to edit the section on Appearance to include a subheading referring to Crona's soul, including how the soul changes appearance upon fusion with the Black Clown's soul (as shown in the Chapter 68 image uploaded). As this page is locked against edits, could an administrator add that section and include the image(s) of Crona's soul (as it appeared with Ragnarok at full power, as it appeared when Ragnarok was de-powered, and as it appeared in later chapters of the manga)?

Soul-dwelling (talk) 04:28, March 9, 2015 (UTC)

Sure. Type out what out want it to say here and I'll copy and paste exactly. --JayAaerow {talk} 08:23, March 15, 2015 (UTC)
Here's what I would like to include. Please edit as suitable (especially as I'm color-blind).

Appearance > Soul

Because Crona shares a body with other entities, the meister's soul appears differently from many other characters. As Maka Albarn and Death the Kid have seen, Crona's soul seems to be mixed together with that of Ragnarok, seeming like that of both a meister and a weapon. These two meisters and Black Star have also seen or felt how powerful Crona's soul is: large, and so strong as to push the air back around them. In the anime, Crona's soul is purple, like that of many witches, although there is no confirmation that Crona is indeed a witch.

Soul Eater Chapter 68 - Crona's fused soul

Later, when Crona is able to perform Madness Fusion with the Black Clown, Crona's soul assumes a different appearance, resembling a mixture of the souls of Crona, Ragnarok, and the Black Clown itself. The soul seems to have Black Blood drippping along it, arrows crossing the soul and bursting out form it, and jagged, wing-shaped energy exploding from the soul. The soul seems to resemble a mix of the faces of Ragnarok and the Black Blood, with an X-shaped mark similar to the one on Ragnarok's face, orbs looking similar to Ragnarok's mouth, large teeth-shaped marking resembling an open mouth like that of Ragnarok and the Black Clown, and an appendage extending from the top of the soul that resembles the Black Clown's head.

Correction Request

Crona (クロナ, Kurona; Literally meaning "Dark One") is one of the first reoccurring antagonists of the Soul Eater series. The child of Medusa Gorgon, Crona is a meister who is a wield the Demon Sword, Ragnarok, that resides within their body due to Ragnarok being apart of theirBlack Blood. By combining a meister/weapon into one body, Medusa attempts to make Crona a Kishin.

It must be edited to their Black Blood, not theirBlack Blood. FinnXMarcy (talk) 03:29, March 16, 2015 (UTC)

Crona actually first appeared in Episode 7 in the anime and Crona's first appearance in the manga is Chapter 4. FinnXMarcy (talk) 03:43, March 19, 2015 (UTC)

Fixed. --JayAaerow {talk} 03:48, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
