Thalim of the Ten Patch Officiants (タリム, "Tarimu") is a fictional character in the manga series of Shaman King. He is one of the Ten Patch Officiants who oversees the Shaman Fights and is later tasked to take care of a dinner on the island where the second round was held. He is also responsible for overseeing Team "Kabbalahers" and Team "Cowboys".


An average build man, Thalim have short black hair that is tied in a long ponytail and wears a headband with small squares lined all around it. Like the rest of the Patch Officiants, he wears native American robes with black patterns on them and has a hexagon shaped silver plating on the chest of his robes.

While working at the Patch's Cafe, he wears a white dress shirt and black pants with a simple lime green tie that has several triangular figures on it. Around his waist he wears an apron with the writing "Patch's Cafe" on it.[1]


Unlike most of the Patch Officiants, he is very intimidated by Asakura Hao and begins to stutter at the smallest sign of hostility towards himself.[2] While protecting his Plant of the Sea he seemed unhappy about the prospect of fighting, but was prepared to do it anyway seeing as it was his duty.[3]

Abilities and PowersEdit

In battle, Thalim is very analytical and have tactics planed before engaging his opponents. When the Five Elemental Warriors invaded the plants, he had already prepared various ways to counter their respective elemental attacks.

Green Seeds is not one but actually many small spirits of plants of varying species and they hardly consume any Furyoku. This helps Thalim be prepared for many situations such as using a tree to conduct Tao Ren's lightning and a flower that can survive freezing temperatures against Usui Horokeu's ice.


Shaman Fights Second RoundEdit

He was first seen in the Patch's Cafe serving an espresso and a cappuccino to Asakura Hao and Asakura Yoh. When Hao decided to leave, he asked Thalim for the bill and when he didn't recognize him, he also asked his name. Thalim, stuttering, introduced himself as one of the Patch officials. When Hao repeated the price of the bill, Thalim, frightened, said that it was the opening day and as a special offer, the first five customers drink for free.

Because of this, Yoh still paid Thalim a tip for the latte he made for him.

Invading the PlantsEdit

After Hao was announced the Shaman King and led by Lip and Rap to the Kings Sanctuary, Thalim went with Goldva and the other Nine Patch Officiants to guard the Plant of the Ocean.

After defeating Nichrom, Thalim watches this through the cameras placed in each plant. As the group reaches the 8th plant, Thalim greets them politely, remembering the tip Yoh gave earlier at the Patch Cafe, and they seemingly have a friendly conversation. Ren, is however unfazed by all of this and quickly oversouls his Armour Over Soul and attacks Thalim with "ElecBang" only to have it blocked by a gigantic tree that suddenly grows up around Thalim.[4] Thalim then reveals that Ren's lightning is largely ineffective against him as the tree would just disperse the electricity into the ground. After Horohoro also fails against Thalim plants, both Ren and Horohoro are tied up by Thalim's Climatic Oversoul.

Chocolove McDonell, however, steps up and battles him. Thalim unleashes Over Soul Rafflesia to combat Chocolove's enhanced sense of smell easily overwhelming his nose. Chocolove overcomes it by stabbing his claws into his nose forcing himself to smell blood instead of the flower. Thalim then uses his O.S. Great Impatiens Balsam to attack from every angle. Chocolove begins to think about the powers the five of them have gained from training in hell and reveals that he has yet to discover his power of wind.

Thalim O.S. Erosion

Thalim's Over Soul crumbles

As Thalim fires the gigantic seeds at him, Chocolove disbands his Armor Over Soul and uses Pascal Avaf and Mic to Over Soul with the air itself as a medium and manipulates air currents literally eroding away all of Thalim's plants. Thalim reveals that he knew such an attack would most likely come and hoped to defeat Chocolove before he himself would realize it. Chocolove only chuckles and asks about his full strength and exclaims his turn to attack creating Ayers Rock one more time and ending the fight.[5]

He later appears, together with all the other Patch Priests, within the Great Spirit.[6]


Anime/Manga DifferenceEdit

Thalim never makes any appearances in the anime series.


  • Due to the name similarity between the brothers Nichrome and Chrom, many people believe Thalim has family relations to Kalim.
  • Like the most of the Patch Tribe members are named after elements on the Periodic Table of Elements, Thalim is named after Thallium.
