Crimson Lotus: Exploding Flame Blade (紅蓮爆炎刃 Guren Bakuenjin) is a Fire Dragon Slayer Magic Spell.


The user ignites their arms and generates long torrents of flames from them, which move to hit the enemy in a spiraling formation. Each connecting strike generates a powerful, burning explosion;[1] an even larger explosion was shown ending the barrage when Natsu Dragneel used the attack against Gildarts Clive.[2] This spell has been described as the ultimate Dragon Slayer technique.[3] It was powerful enough to defeat a worn-out Laxus Dreyar,[4] force Gildarts to take two steps back when attacked by it,[5] and even more powerful than Sting Eucliffe and Rogue Cheney's Unison Raid: Holy Shadow Dragon's Flash Fang.[6]
