?) given shape.

It is not a true Noble Phantasm, but rather the quintessence of his martial arts where all of his hard strikes, even those meant as a diversionary strike or a feint, are enough to snatch away the opponent's life.[1] He was an expert martial artist with strength that surpassed that of others, but the principal of "engulfing the opponent with Qi (気?, localized as "Chi")" being put into practice was thought to be more important than physical strength. One theory states that he did not just defeat opponents with the destructive power of his fists. Those annihilated by his techniques did not die from the destruction of their internal organs, but rather from what in the present would be called circulatory shock.[2] This Noble Phantasm is the case of "when a Heroic Spirit's martial arts becomes his one and only asset, the 'skill' itself is sublimated as a Noble Phantasm."[1]

The technique of "engulfing with Qi" does not have a fixed title as a technique, and it is an idea that just slightly resembles the Cosmic Orbit (周天, Zhou Tian?) methods seen in the Taoist discipline. Zhou Tian is a kind of training method in which Qi is cultivated by enclosing the body and mind in Qi, revitalizing the whole body and allowing for the resonance and amplification of Qi. One goal of the training is to fill one's body with Qi and to fill one's own Qi in the surrounding space. It has been speculated whether or not Li Shuwen "engulfed his opponent with Qi" by utilizing the practice of molding the space filled with his own Qi in order to construct his own territory. Those who have been "engulfed with Qi" would have some of their senses dazzled, entering into a heightened state of tension and paranoia, and in the case a direct impact is driven into the nervous system of an opponent in this state, it would either give the feeling that their nervous system was under almost unendurable strain, or their heart will stop due to a reaction in the pneumogastric nerve.[1][2]

This technique skew his target's nervous and circulatory systems as well as Magic Circuits. It disrupts the internal Magic Circuits like a tornado, and in a Servant's case, the magical energy connection to one's Master can no longer function properly.[3]

God Spear, No Second StrikeEdit

« Observe carefully, the exquisite skill of the Liu He Da Qiang!"
"My spear will rectify the one-hit kill."
"There is absolutely no contradiction to this spear that is exalted as the Divine Spear! »


God Spear, No Second Strike (神槍无二打
, Kami Yari Mu Ni Da
Shin-sō ni no Uchi Irazu
?) is the spear technique of Li Shuwen. Similarly to "Tsubame Gaeshi" and "Wu Er Da", it is a technical skill perfected to the point of being sublimated as a Noble Phantasm. It has the same effects as the Assassin-class "No Second Strike", but the range was broadened by holding a spear. From the anecdote of "I pierced the flies perched on the wall without scratching the wall", one can guess that the precision of his movements is also no different from when unarmed.[4][5]
