Lux Sanctus: Murakumo

Weapon Type

Giant sword, bladed armor


Nox Nyctores

The Lux Sanctus: Murakumo (神輝シンキ・ムラクモ) are a pair of Nox Nyctores that are classified together as the tenth of the Nox Nyctores. In their default form, the Murakumo forms a large broadsword with various ornaments on its hilt. Upon activating, it takes the form of armor with eight floating blades beside it.


One of the two Nox Nyctores to be made after the Dark War, the Lux Sanctus: Murakumo were designed by Nine the Phantom and Relius Clover.[1] Its prototype was the Sealed Weapon Izayoi as they are designed as "Anti-Sankishin Core Units" (対三輝神用ユニット, Tai-Sankishin Koa Yunitto) with the purpose of being able to kill a Sankishin - to this end, Murakumo is immune to Phenomenon Intervention, being its unique trait as a Nox.[2][3] There is very little information on this Nox and what it can exactly do.[4][5] However, Murakumo Units have the ability to directly connect to the Boundary, harnessing virtually unlimited amounts of power.[6]

Murakumo is the only Nox of which two variants exist, both being constructed of the mythical alloy Hihiirokane.[7] One was owned by Nu-13 and another by Mu-12. Neither have been seen in the new world created by Ragna the Bloodedge. Lambda-11 owns an imitation Murakumo that was created by Kokonoe and is made of titanium and other light metals

Lux Sanctus: Murakumo

Nox Nyctores number 10. Possessed by Nu.

It takes the form of a massive sword while on standby, but once activated, it turns into 8 blades surrounding the user. As the owner of this weapon, Nu is called a 'Murakumo Unit.' [8]


In Latin, Lux means "light", while Sanctus means "holy". Murakumo comes from the legendary sword, Ame-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi, which is the original name of the Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi. Literally, Murakumo means "gathering clouds," so a literal translation for the localized name of Lux Sanctus: Murakumo could be "Holy Light: Gathering Clouds".
