Axel Shooter (アクセルシューター Akuseru Shūtā) is a shooting spell cast by Nanoha Takamachi after Raising Heart Exelion is upgraded with a cartridge system in A's.

Essentially, it is a powered up version of Divine Shooter that is able to make faster turns and be controlled more precisely despite no visual change at all. Its only demerit is that the caster cannot cast nor control the spell when moving.

In A's (ep.5), up to 12 bolts can be fired at once, compared to 5 bolts of Divine Shooter in Nanoha. By the time of StrikerS, a total of 32 bolts can be launched at the same time.


Axel Shooter is the spell name shown by Raising Heart in A's. The normal transliteration from Japanese would be Accel Shooter, which is also the spelling shown by Raising Heart in The MOVIE 2nd A's.

Notable usesEdit


  • Accel Shooter Vanishing Shift (アクセルシューター・バニシングシフト Akuseru Shūtā Banishingu Shifuto) is a precise shooting variation making use of Raising Heart's lock-on function. Shooters fired will approach the locked-on targets at a medium-low speed, and functions as intercept bolts against the targets' attacks on the caster and/or any allies to be protected. In The MOVIE 2nd A's, Nanoha casts 16 shooters with this shift against NachtWal's Eroded Form, protecting herself and covering Vita so that she can perform a closer attack.
  • Accel Shooter Avalanche Shift (アクセルシューター・アバランチシフト Akuseru Shūtā Abaranchi Shifuto) is a variation launching a large amount of shooters like an avalanche. In ViVid (ch.95), Nanoha casts it against Vivio Takamachi as a decoy, and detours to the back of Vivio when she is busy with her defense.
