Strike Flame generated by
Raising Heart Exelion in StrikerS
|Primary caster||Nanoha Takamachi|
|Japanese name||ストライクフレーム |
|First app.||A's (ep.11)|
Strike Flame (ストライクフレーム Sutoraiku Furēmu) is the semi-materialized mana blade generated at the tip of Devices or Device-like equipment, as part of the Accelerate Charge System. The energy filled therein is used for high-speed charges.
It is primarily cast as three semi-materialized mana blades at the tip and two frame edges of Nanoha Takamachi's Raising Heart Exelion. With the rocket boost provided by the accelerate charger, Strike Flame is capable of penetrating barriers. Once the mana blade is inside a barrier, Nanoha can bombard from its tip at point-blank range.
Although the official spelling is not revealed in the series, it is pronounced by Raising Heart as Strike Flame instead of Strike Frame.
The copy of Strike Flame used by Stern the Destructor in the portable continuity has not been named in the series. In the INNOCENT adaptation, it is merely draft-named Strike Flame. It is covered in this article for simplicity, until there is other canonical source.
- Strike Flame is first seen in A's (ep.11) / The MOVIE 2nd A's when Nanoha casts Exelion Buster A.C.S to confront the Will of the Book of Darkness. During the charge, Strike Flame is capable of penetrating the Will's barrier shield, enabling the effectiveness of Exelion Buster.
- In Reflection, Nanoha uses Strike Flame A.C.S Drive with Strike Cannon to charge against Stern, after firing Starlight Breaker against Stern's Luciferion Breaker.
- In StrikerS (ep.22), it is part of Nanoha's A.C.S Driver spell to destroy streams of Gadget Drones.
Notable uses of copied spells:
- In Battle of Aces and Gears of Destiny, Stern the Destructor casts a copy of Strike Flame for Luciferion's Disaster Head (A.C.S Open Mode).
