Faust Love(ボーン·キラーズ) is the 16th episode of Shaman King the anime series.


As Asakura Yoh is about to attack Johann Faust VIII, again he easily gets surrounded by skeletons again. As Faust is continuing his dissecting on Oyamada Manta, Yoh is desperately fighting all the skeletons that are in his path. Faust comments that the real fight is about to begin, while Yoh is getting slowly exhausted from fighting the skeletons. As Yoh attacks Faust , while Eliza Faust dodges the attacks. Then Silva of the 10 Patch Officiants, who came to watch the fight even states that Yoh's Furyoku is fading away because he has not much any strength left. As Faust continuing Dissecting Manta's body, Yoh gets beaten by Eliza. Faust then states that he will become Shaman King and revive his late wife, Eliza. 

Then, a flashback is shown in where how Faust and Eliza met each other and Faust wants to save Eliza from an incurable disease. Faust tells that after twenty years, they overcame her illness, but Eliza was shot in the forehead by a burglar. Faust did all he could to save her life, but it wasn't enough to save her. Since then he became a necromancer, so he could be with Eliza. After Faust found out about the Shaman Fight, his dream became to win it so he could bring Eliza back. Meanwhile, after dodging Eliza's attack, Yoh states that he is still determined to save Manta. As Silva wonders what's going on, Anna tells him that Manta was Yoh's first friend, so he has a close friendship with Manta. Faust then changes his Over Soul style and puts Eliza's soul back into her body. As Eliza deals another hit to Yoh, Silva states that Faust has so much Furyoku left that this match is almost decided already. As Eliza attack Yoh multiple times, Yoh gets even more desperate about saving Manta. Yoh finds new strength in his determination and he states that he won't lose to "a doll like this"; this infuriates Faust and goes berserk attacking Yoh relentlessly and recklessly for calling his dear love Eliza "a doll". After Eliza attacks Yoh multiple times while Faust states that what Yoh said is very "unforgivable", Yoh loses his oversoul. Even though Yoh has lost the fight already, Faust wants to make Yoh suffer for insulting his dear Eliza and uses his "20-Ton Calcium Giant" Over Soul to destroy Yoh. As Silva tries to stop the fight, Faust attacks Yoh with all his might. Silva realizes that he isn't going to make it in time, but just then Tao Ren shows up and destroys Faust's Over Soul with a simple kick attack. Faust is finally defeated and is carried away in the arms of his late wife, meanwhile Tao Ren tells Yoh that he won't let Faust hurt Yoh because Yoh is his next opponent.
