Zest's Spear (ゼストの槍 Zesuto no Yari) is Zest Grangeitz's Armed Device, which looks like a pole weapon instead of a spear.

Name[edit | edit source]

The Device itself does not have a name,[1] and is simply referred to as "Zest's Spear" in the anime cast[2] and "Spear" in the supporting materials.[1][3] It would be spelled "Zests Speer" in German/Belkan language.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Zest's Spear only appears in StrikerS and flashbacks in StrikerS manga, as Zest died in the series. In the last battle between him and Signum, it was broken by Laevatein, and handed over to Signum since it contained a lot of important data.

It has a simple structure but very strong power. Similar to Durandal, it does not have an AI,[1] but is able to respond vocally.

Forms[edit | edit source]

  • In its standby form, it appears as a ring which Zest wears on his right middle finger.
  • In its active form, it appears as a guan dao-like pole weapon, and there are also carvings on the blade.

Functions[edit | edit source]

Upgrades Description
Full Drive[3] Although without a specific form, its power is boosted up to the Full Drive level, which can break Graf Eisen's Gigantform into pieces. The command phrase by the spear itself is "Grenzpunkt freilassen" (Ger. "release the limit point") with Japanese subtitles "Full Drive Start" (フルドライブ・スタート Furu Doraibu Sutāto).[2]
Cartridge System The same three-cylinder type Cartridge System used by Graf Eisen,[4] installed inside the purple wrap at the end of the spear.
