Madō Lighter is a special magical lighter carried by Makai Knights. It contains Madō Flames that is commonly used to detect and combat Horrors


Original Universe[]

The Madō Lighter is a Gothic-themed special lighter that resembles a demonic eye and designed to store Madō Flames, giving the user a subtle means in using said Flames. Said Flames is contained within the Lighter's gem (special part through which Watch Dogs can refuel it via. their specialized wolf statue), and can be activated by opening its outer casing as with regular lighters. In addition of aiding in performing Blazing Armament, Madō Lighter can be used for decoding Orders Document, healing, and expose human-infested Horrors.


In Ryūga-verse, Madō Lighters also serves as a means to detect Horrors. However, blazing armament doesn't seem to be a common feature when facing Horrors. While a version of it is used to enhance Garo in combat, there seems to be a clear degree of separation. A unique ability in this universe is that the flames can be used for analytical purposes. When the flame is focused by a priest, the flames can reveal computational-like data for the user to understand their environment better.

Anime Series[]

In the anime universe, Madō Lighters serve as a means to detect Horrors and appeared to share similar functions to their live-action counterparts. However, the lighters' versatility is not fully explored due to them not predominantly used by Makai Knights; some Knights and Alchemists have different approach in identifying Horrors be it through discreet chemical testing or ESP or combination of both in conjunction of Madōgu in their disposal relative to their hunting style.


Madō Lamps[]

Before cigarette lighters became common place in the modern world, Madō Lighters were originally bottle shaped oil lamps that Priests and Knights carried with them. Aside from the standard means of usage for healing and strengthening attacks, the lamps could emit flames in a concentrated stream at a target in a manner not unlike a modern flamethrower. It is presumed Madō Lamps were abandoned from standard use when Madō Lighters became more common, as the lighters were smaller and less conspicuous to the average human or Horror.
