Hagane (ハガネ, Steel or Metal) refers to mass-produced Makai Armors that specialize in long-sword combat and utilized by untitled Makai Knights. This kind of armor first appears in Makai Senki.

Description & Characteristics

Original Series

The hagane (or metal) armor is as mass-produced armor for Untitled Knights within the Makai Order. Makai Knights of lesser pedigree, skill or lacking an armor will be given this type of armor to combat Horrors. The armor is simpler in appearance and comes in duller colors; brass, nickel, and copper. Due to their simplicity, they lack any special gimmicks and least ornate out of all armors in appearance. Because the Madōbas are meant for titled knights, a metal armored knight will have to find other ways to compensate for his limited options (e.g. Madō Bagua Tag, magical skills, and Makai Priest). Much of the metal armor's abilities are unknown. Though unconfirmed whether they can perform Blazing Armament and adhere to the 99.9 seconds time limit (thus face the risk of assuming Lost Soul Beast form if worn past the time limit), that is pretty much likely the case since they can perform Shooting Star of Light Arrow, one of powerful techniques every Makai Knight can master. Overall, the metal armor is of lesser quality but a necessary tool to combat the darkness.


There has yet to be a metal armor featured in this universe. Every armor featured so far was unique to a titled knight.

Anime Series

At least one metal armor was shown in The Carved Seal of Flames series. It was summoned by Marcelo to kill Gael before being finally possessed by Onbla.

Notes & Trivia

  • Much like Gai & Zen, all the Hagane armors seen (at least in Original Series) have been rendered in CGI.
  • The type of swords used the Hagane armors (at least in Original Series) are of the same design as the Garoken in its battle form.
  • The reason for the resemblance is that according to Keita Amemiya's twitter where he posted the design of the Hagane armor, the relationship between this armor's sword and the Garoken, is that the Hagane is intended to be a mass-produced armor based on Garo.
