Information

Divine Dividing, also known as the White Dragon Emperor's Light Wings, is a Sacred Gear, and one of the eighteen Longinus, wielded by Vali Lucifer of the Vali Team. It has the spirit of the Vanishing Dragon, Albion, sealed inside it.

Summary

In the past, Albion fought against his arch-rival, the Welsh Dragon, Ddraig, in an intense battle which was interrupted by the Angels, Devils, and Fallen Angels, who were at war during the time. In anger, both Dragons attacked the leaders of the Three Factions, which led to their bodies being destroyed and their souls being sealed into two separate Sacred Gears, with Albion being moved into the Sacred Gear Divine Dividing.[1]

In the Light Novels, like the Boosted Gear, it is revealed that when a host of the Divine Dividing dies, their memories are zombified and stored inside the Divine Dividing.

In Volume 12, all the past possessors' consciousness were dominated and sealed by Vali, allowing him to use the Empireo Juggernaut Overdrive against Pluto.[2]

In Volume 21, Albion unlocked the power of Reflect, which allows the user to safely redirect oncoming attacks.[3]

During his deathmatch against Aži Dahaka, Vali was able to unlock the strongest of Albion's original powers called Reduce.[3]

Appearance

Divine Dividing takes the form of a pair of white Dragon wings on the user's back, with eight energy "feathers".

Abilities

Vali in Balance Breaker activating "Divide"

The Divine Dividing has the ability to Divide (ディバイド, Dibaido) the power of its opponents by half after coming into physical contact with them every 10 seconds.[4] The halved powers are then added to his/her own powers.[4] If the added power exceeds the amount that the wielder can safely contain, the excess energy is then expelled out through the wings, which allows the user to always be at their highest potential.[5] It can also repeatedly reduce the power of attacks in half.[4] [6]

In Volume 10, a previous user of the Divine Dividing was able to halve the negative emotions of the previous possessors of the Boosted Gear.[7]

In Volume 21, Albion unlocked the power of Reflect (リフレクト, Rifurekuto), which allows the user to safely redirect oncoming attacks.[3]

During his deathmatch against Aži Dahaka, Vali was able to unlock the strongest of Albion's original powers called Reduce (減少, Genshō), which releases a special type of poison that can destroy the body and soul. However, it is ineffective against inorganic things.[3]

As a pair of wings, it also enables the user flight that can reach up to light-speed.[4]

Weaknesses

With Albion sealed within the Divine Dividing, its possessors become vulnerable to Dragon-slaying magic, swords and curses as if they themselves were Dragons.[5] The continuous use of the Divine Dividing's "Divide" ability will drain the wielder's stamina to a significant degree. If the user has no way of expelling the excess stored power, they will be forced to endure the strain of carrying the excess power and it can stop Scale Mail from functioning temporarily.[5]

Forms

Divine Dividing Light Wings

Light Wings

Divine Dividing Light Wings is the initial form of Divine Dividing in which the user has the ability to Divide (ディバイド, Dibaido) the power of their opponents by half after coming into physical contact with them every 10 seconds. The halved powers are then added to his/her own powers.[4] The wings also provide the user with the ability to fly.

In Volume 11, Vali later acquired the ability to use Half Dimension (ハーフ ディメンション, Hāfu Dimenshon); which could previously only be used in Balance Breaker, just through the power of his wings.[8]

Vali activating Balance Breaker

Divine Dividing: Scale Mail

Divine Dividing: Scale Mail (白龍皇の鎧(ディバイン・ディバイディング・スケイルメイル), Dibain Dibaidingu: Sukeiru Meiru): Also known as the Armor of the White Dragon Emperor, is the Balance Breaker of Divine Dividing, which creates a White Dragon Armor with blue jewels that covers the user's body and strengthens the users powers and abilities. When active, the user is able to absorb power without the 10 second limit, this also applies to later forms. Divine Dividing can also halve the size of objects and living beings through the use of Half Dimension, this ability does not require the user to make contact with the target.[5] The Scale Mail also allows its user to survive in the Dimensional Gap.[9]

Juggernaut Drive

Vali activating Juggernaut Drive

Juggernaut Drive (覇龍(ジャガーノート・ドライヴ), Jagānōto Doraivu): Also known as the Dragon of Supremacy, like the Boosted Gear, Divine Dividing also has access to this form. Prior to the series, Vali had already attained this form, which he attempted to use in Volume 4 and was first displayed in Volume 7. This form releases the full power of the Vanishing Dragon which would normally cause the user to lose their sanity while having their lifespan being devoured by the power, but Vali is able to avoid that by using his large amounts of demonic powers as a substitute to his life force.[10] Vali has trained extensively to stay sane during the process but he's able to use the Juggernaut Drive for brief periods of time.

Empireo Juggernaut Overdrive

Empireo Juggernaut Overdrive (白銀の極覇龍(エンピレオ・ジャガーノート・オーバードライブ), Enpireo Jagānōto Ōbādoraibu), also known as the Silver Dragon of the Highest Supremacy, is a new form that Vali attained in Volume 12 that changes the color of his Scale Mail armor to silver. Like the Boosted Gear's Cardinal Crimson Promotion, it does not consume his life. It has access to the Compression Divider, an enhanced version of Half Dimension, that compresses the body of a specific opponent until they vanish.[2]

Like the Juggernaut Drive, it requires a special chant to activate. The chant goes as follows.

I, who is about to awaken,
Am the White Dragon Emperor who will take the law down to the darkness.
I walk the road of domination with infinite destruction and by piercing through the imaginary dream.
I shall become a pure Emperor of White Dragon
And I shall have you obey the silvery-white illusions and the perfect evil ways!

我、目覚めるは
律の絶対を闇に堕とす白龍皇なり
無限の破滅と黎明の夢を穿ちて覇道を往く
我、無垢なる龍の皇帝と成りて
汝を白銀の幻想と魔道の極致へと従えよう

Waga, mezameru wa
Ritsu no zettai o yami ni duou to su Hakuryukou nari
Mugen no hametsu to reimei no yume o ugachi te hadou o yuku
Waga, muku naru ryu no koutei to nari te
Nanji o hakugin no gensou to madou no kyokuchi e to shitagaeyo u

After which, Divine Dividing announces "Juggernaut Over Drive!"

Diabolos Dragon

Diabolos Dragon Lucifer

Diabolos Dragon (D×D(ディアボロス・ドラゴン), Diaborosu Doragon) is the new form that Vali obtains in Volume 21, by combining Albion's power with Vali's power as a descendant of the original Lucifer. It is very similar to Issei's Diabolos Dragon form in the fact that the armor is organic and it is a mixture of silver and black the difference is it has 12 devil wings. Its finishing move is the Satan Lucifer Smasher.

Vali, Albion, and Ophis alternate lines when chanting the Diabolos Dragon Lucifer chant.

Vali: "The pure White Dragon dwelling within me, rise up from your supremacy"
Albion: "The silvery-white Morning Star I possess within me, claim the throne of Dawn"
Ophis: "The jet-black God of Infinity"
Vali: "The mysterious and unfathomable father of Devils"
Vali and Albion: "We shall transcend the limits to accept the oath"
All: "Thou shalt kneel down before our bright and glorious existence!"

Vali: 我に宿りし無垢なる白龍よ、覇の理をも降せ
Albion: 我が宿りし白銀の明星よ、黎明の王位に至れ
Ophis: 濡羽色の無限の神よ
Vali: 玄玄たる悪魔の父よ
Vali and Albion: 究極を超克する我らが誡を受け入れよ
All: 汝、玲瓏のごとく我らが燿にて跪拝せよ

Vali: Ga ni yadorishi mukunaru haku ryū yo, ha no ri o mo kudase
Albion: Waga yadorishi shirogane no myōjō yo, reimei no ōi ni itare
Ophis: Nurebairo no mugen no kamiyo
Vali: Gengentaru akuma no chichiyo
Vali and Albion: Kyūkyoku o chōkoku suru warera ga kai o ukeireyo
All: Nanji, reirō nogotoku warera ga hikari nite kihai seyo

Trivia

  • Divine Dividing and Boosted Gear were designated as Mid-Tier Longinus due to portions of the Heavenly Dragons' powers and abilities being sealed by God of the Bible, however, since these restrictions were being removed, their rankings might change.
  • Divine Dividing is one of two Longinus alongside the Nereid Kyrie to be wielded by a descendant of the original Satans.
    • Both Sacred Gears are also dragon-related.
  • Divine Dividing bears a heavy resemblance to Lancelot Albion's Energy Wings from Code Geass. Interestingly enough, Lancelot's last name is the same as the Dragon sealed within the Divine Dividing.
