Metatron (絶滅天使メタトロン, Metatoron?) is the Angel of light corresponding to the first sephira. Its original wielder is Origami Tobiichi.


Origami Tobiichi[]

When summoned by Origami, <Metatron> materializes as a set of feather-like cannons floating above her head. The cannons form a crown when joined together, and each one can shoot beams of light from its tip. Each ray of light has proven strong enough to easily pierce Tohka's Astral Dress, which boasts exceptional durability among the Spirits, when she does not create a barrier around herself. Tohka has also claimed that even if she does create a barrier around herself, the lasers would still be able to pierce through. Origami can summon up to 100 cannons by pushing her Reiryoku to the limit.

<Metatron> has displayed five different formations so far:

  • Shemesh (日輪シェメッシュ, Shemesshu?. lit. "The Sun"): The floating cannons spin around her, gathering light particles in which she can release as a rain of energy blasts, causing heavy destruction to the ground below.
  • Mal'akh (天翼マルアク, Maruaku?. lit. "Heavenly Wings"): By taking on a wing-like formation and folding the cannons behind her back, Origami is able to fly and achieve great speeds.
  • Kadour (光剣カドゥール, Kadūru?. lit. "Sword of Light"): By breaking formation, the cannons can each attack its target(s) individually, making it look as if they have a will of their own.
  • Artelif (砲冠アーティリフ, Ātirifu?. lit. "Crown Cannon"): By making all of the cannons take on a circular formation and pointing their tips in the same direction, Origami can concentrate their firepower into a massive beam of pure shining light. Before firing the attack, Origami can trap the target in a net of light beams to prevent any escape. The attack is powerful enough to make <Phantom> desperate to avoid a direct hit, with the ensuing aftermath even unintentionally reducing her own parents to scattered pieces of flesh.
  • Unnamed Defensive Formation: By making the cannons surround her, Origami can use their gleaming light to create a barrier that can block incoming attacks.

Origami has also shown the ability to use teleportation to dodge attacks while in command of <Metatron>. However, the position to which she teleports can be predicted and intercepted. Also, she is unable to dodge in quick succession. Tohka theorizes that Origami either can't teleport continuously or that she can't teleport away from an attack she couldn't predict. Tohka also theorized that, if Origami is caught in an attack that is so large that it reaches to everything within the limited range of her teleportation, she cannot avoid taking damage. While Origami was initially surprised by the ability's automatic activation, she was later able to control its usage in order to conserve Reiryoku.

Shido Itsuka[]

Shido gains access to <Metatron> after sealing Origami. While flirting with Ellen during his Reiryoku high, Shido unconsciously uses <Metatron> to dodge Ellen's kick and reappear behind her. Shido has since been able to manifest <Metatron>'s cannons and also emit rays of light from his own hands.

  • Mal'akh (天翼マルアク, Maruaku?. lit. "Heavenly Wings"): By assuming a wing-like formation and folding the pillars behind the back, Metatron allows for achieving great speeds in flight. Shido would use <Mal'akh> in conjunction with <Raphael> and <Zadkiel> during the battle against Westcott and <Nibelcole>.


The parallel-world Spirit codenamed <Beast> has indirect access to <Metatron> via the First Sword (一番目の剣, Ichibanme no Ken?), a sharp, pointed sword with ornamental wings on the handle. After Shido tackles <Beast> out of the Fraxinus, <Beast> uses this sword to launch rays of light from the sky down towards Shido.


  • Metatron means "The One Who Guards."
  • The archangel Metatron is closely linked to the archangel Sandalphon, considered twin brothers with interchangeable positions, which is ironic considering the initial animosity between the owners of their namesake Angels.
  • Metatron's configurations, Shemesh (שמש), Mal'akh (מלאך), and Kadour (כדור), mean "Sun", "Angel", and "Sphere" respectively in Hebrew.
