Yato no Kami (夜刀の神 Yato no Kami, lit. "God of Night Sword/Katana") is the Divine Drag-Ride of Yoruka Kirihime.


Yato no Kami has sharp armour that resembles a blade, a mechanical ring wrapped around the waist, and has two auxiliary legs that extend backwards from the main legs. The overall configuration resembles that of a general purpose Drake, but with a much greater impression.[1]

In Over Limit, Yato no Kami has a form more specialised for battle. It has several additional blades sticking out above its armour and its four legs are now arranged similarly to a horse's.[2]


Spell Code: Yato no Kami's Divine Raiment, which allows Yoruka to control other Drag-Rides after touching them. This Divine Raiment leaves shining letters on Drag-Rides touched by Yato no Kami (including by its special armament). The longer the duration of contact, the greater the accuracy and duration of the control. If she can touch a Drag-Ride continuously for ten seconds, she can completely control it. This Divine Raiment allows Yoruka to fight against multiple other Divine Drag-Ride users at once. However, the effect wears off after a Drag-Ride spends some time separated from Yato no Kami. She also cannot use Spell Code if she is using the Drag-Ride secret arts or Instant Strike.[1][3]

  • Over Limit: By using Spell Code on her own Drag-Ride, Yoruka can release its limiters to strengthen it and transform it into a shape more specialised for battle. The altered leg arrangement allows Yoruka to dodge attacks and add the force of the legs to her own attacks. However, the use of Over Limit places a high burden on Yoruka's body.[2]

Kumo no Ito: Yato no Kami's special armament, which lays out unseen steel strings like a spider's web. Its purpose is to act as a conduit for Spell Code, allowing Yoruka to control Drag-Rides that touch the string even if they don't touch Yato no Kami itself. This allows Yoruka to take control of a large number of Drag-Rides at once.[4]
