Oversouls and Attacks[]

O.S. Black Sickle[]

O.S. "Black Sickle"

O.S. "Black Sickle"(O.S. ブラックシクル)

  • Shaman: Kalim of the Ten Patch Officiants
  • O.S. Type: Spirit Type
  • Spirit Ally: Black Sickle(Bull Spirit)
  • Medium(s) Used: Hatchet & Bull bones and skull, attached to Kalim's pants

Description: By using his hatchet and the skull and bones from a bull attached to his pants, Kalim can completely materialize the body (except for the tail) of his black bull spirit Black Sickle onto his legs, giving him a centaur like-form. With this Over Soul Kalim gains incredible speed and strength, that can hurl up a large boulder weighing several tonnes into the air[2], Kalim can also completely control the bull body. This Over Soul was first seen when Asakura Yoh and his friends arrived at the Plant of the Plains, where Horohoro instantly attacked Kalim. After easily crushing the ice, Kalim generated the Oversoul and punched Horohoro so hard in the gut that he was knocked out. In his second appearance, the Over Soul gains a more mechanical appearance.


  • Rumbling Bull Brougham (牛車で散歩ランブルブルブルーアム Ranburu Buru Burūamu, lit. "Oxcart Walk"): An attack where Kalim uses the hoves of Black Sickle to viciously stomp the ground.[3]
  • Vaunted Horn (オレの自慢のつのボーンテッドボーン Bōnteddobōn): Using the incredible speed of Black Sickle and the strength of its horns, Kalim charges his opponents crushing everything in his path.[4]

Anime/Manga Difference[]

Black Sickle in anime series

In the 2001 anime, Black Sickle is represented as a red bull while the bottom half represented a centaur. Unlike in manga, this Over Soul represents Black Sickle with the appearance somewhat resembling that of a bison rather an ox.


  • While he was called as a bison in Shaman King: Legacy of Spirits, he is technically a bull and not a bison like Silver Horn.[1]
