Klarwind (クラールヴィント Kurāruvinto) is Shamal's Armed Device.

It appears to have no programmed gender, and speaks German like other Ancient Belkan Devices.

Name[edit | edit source]

"Klarwind" means "Clear Wind" in German. Despite the official spelling is "Klarwind",[1] some translations render its name as "Klarer Wind", which means the same thing in proper German.

Klarwind is also titled the "Rings of Wind" (風のリング Kaze no Ringu).

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Klarwind is first introduced in the A's manga prologue and then featured in A's, StrikerS manga and StrikerS.

Contrary to its Device type, Klarwind does not have a Cartridge System and is seldom used for direct combat, but can create portals, function as a mobile phone, and perform supportive magics like healing allies.

Alternate continuities[edit | edit source]

In the movie continuity, no significant change is noted in The MOVIE 2nd A's except for the minor changes in designs. In Reflection, Klarwind is first seen on screen attacking opponents physically in its Pendelform.

In the Brave Duel continuity, Klarwind's two active forms in The MOVIE 2nd A's are adapted as Shamal's Brave Duel Device (see Klarwind).
