Shaman King Wiki

The Bâo-Lèi Sword (宝雷剣 Hōraiken; Chinese pinyin: Bâolèijiàn) is a silver sword and the most treasured heirloom of the Tao Family.[2]


The Bâo-Lèi Sword is an ornamented sword with a collapsible blade and a pair of purple tassels at the end of the hilt.

It possesses spirit-refining abilities and was able to evolve Bason from a Human Ghost to a Seirei Class spirit by merely being used as a medium for the Over Soul.[3]

It was first seen used by Tao Yúan as the medium for his Dà Dào Lóng Over Soul[4] and was later passed on to his son Tao Ren.[2] After Asakura Hao had the Spirit of Fire incinerate the Basontou,[5] Ren used the Bâo-Lèi Sword as the main medium for his Over Soul.[1]
