Natsuki Subaru (ナツキ・スバル) is the main protagonist of Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu. He was a hikikomori that was transported to Lugnica through unknown means, and given the ability to Return by Death by Satella. Sanctuary and is later revealed to have the necessary qualifications to become a Sage Candidate. Currently, Subaru is situated in the neighboring Sacred Empire of Vollachia; more precisely, in the Demon City of Chaosflame with the former 77th Emperor Vincent Abellux, Al, Medium O'Connell, Taritta and Louis Arneb, trying to prevent the 7th ranking Divine General Yoruna Mishigure to join the enemy's side. Upon delivering the letter to the Divine General and narrowly escaping the Red Lapis Castle after being attacked by Vincent's body double's escorts-the 3rd ranking Divine General Olbart Dunkelkenn and a Second-Class General Kafma Irulux-Subaru woke up within his own 10-year- younger body, seems aging backwards 10 years over night. Born and raised in the Island Nation of Japan, Natsuki Subaru is a young Asian teenage boy. It is a power that allows Subaru to summon a single invisible hand-like appendage from his chest and move and extend it telekinetically. If Subaru focuses enough, he can even make the hand phase through matter as though it wasn't there. Subaru's version of the Authority of Sloth is far less powerful than both Petelgeuse's and Sekhmet's Authorities of Sloth, as, although Petelgeuse for instance could summon roughly one hundred hands at his maximum potential with little effort, Subaru can only summon a single hand with minimal range and damage output.
Heard Of The great Manga BS Theory? Here Is a superb Example
Unlike Petelgeuse's Unseen Hands, Subaru's Invisible Providence is as powerful as his own two hands, and has roughly the same range, making it practically useless in combat. Cor Leonis (コル・リオニス Koru Rionisu): When Reinhard van Astrea killed the Sin Archbishop of Greed in the Crusade against Greed during Witch Cult's assault on the Water Gate City of Priestella, Subaru absorbed the Witch Factor of Greed which resided within the white haired calamity for over a century. Cor Leonis is a somewhat reverse form of Regulus' Lion's Heart, which Subaru manifested in Arc 6's climax. similar to Regulus' Authority of Greed, Cor Leonis has two phases; First Shift and Second Shift. First Shift allows him to take on the physical and mental burdens and fatigue of people he himself considers allies, effectively eliminating problems such as injuries or lack of dexterity for his comrades in combat.
He is also able to shoulder fatal injuries and save his allies' lives, however, at a cost of receiving the same wounds himself as his body naturally reproduces the sources of pain he suddenly receives; a deadly side effect which can easily kill him, if ignored. When using this phase, Subaru is able to locate his allies' position and status as he sees pale white dots, wherever they're located; though his allies must also consider Subaru their own ally, otherwise Subaru will not be able to sense their location - during the very first chapter of Arc 7, Subaru tried to locate Rem's location but was unable to, as due to her loss of memories she did not recognize him as her ally. It only works on people he recognizes as his friends and allies. Second Shift or Division of Labor, however, works very similarly to Regulus' very own Lion's Heart, in a sense where Subaru can divide the burden between the allies of his choosing. He can freely regulate how big of a burden he'll employ on each person, kind of like opening or closing a tap.
Naturally, the same side effects will apply to each and every bearer of the shared burden, meaning their lives rest in Subaru's hands for the entire duration. The only condition for using the Second Shift is that the person Subaru wants to share his burden with, must be willing to accept his burden and open their heart to Subaru. Magic User (魔法使い Mahō Tsukai): In the world Subaru was summoned to, individuals were capable of manipulating magical energy known as mana because of a "gate" that existed within every person's body. This gate would draw which into a body as well as expel it out, functioning as a kind of faucet for magical energy. Each person possesses a different elemental attribute that allows them to produce magical spells related to that element. Of the six elements, Subaru's designated element is Yin Magic, a fairly rare attribute. Although he was a novice, Subaru had the capability to cast very basic-level Yin Magic spells. However, after overusing his gate, it became defective, meaning he could no longer cast any kind of magic. He is still able to use Yin magic through Beatrice, though Beatrice has run out of her mana supply when fighting the Oousagi, rendering both unable to use any kind of spell that isn't too complex.
39;s barely able to cast basic level magic.
According to the author, Subaru could learn how to use other types of magic if he dedicated his life to that. Spirit Affinity: Subaru has a rare innate gift to form contracts with spirits. Spirit User (精霊使い Seirei Tsukai): Subaru is contracted with the Artificial Spirit Beatrice, though according to her, he isn't a true Spirit User. She also has a terrible mana consumption rate and formerly got around this by draining mana from people in the mansion using the library as a medium. After their initial fight against the Oousagi, Beatrice depleted her mana reserves in its entirety, meaning she's barely able to cast basic level magic. As Beatrice's contractor, Subaru's condition and whereabouts can be sensed by her via their connection, although he is unable to do so. Furthermore, he is capable of remotely calling Beatrice out if he focuses enough on his link with her. Like Julius, Subaru is also considered to be a Spirit Knight (精霊騎士 Seirei Kishi). Subaru cannot form a contract with other Spirits. Beatrice cannot restore mana on her own. Beatrice cannot use the mana in the atmosphere.
Beatrice can only drain mana from Subaru. Spirit Arts (精霊術): Subaru is capable of using Spirit Arts with Beatrice, and is thus able to use Yin Magic with her aid. He has also created a number of original spells with her, unique to the pair. Subaru unleashes Shamak on the leader of a pack of Demon Beasts. Minya (ミーニャ): Subaru can create stakes made of crystallized mana covered with light purple flames as an offensive attack via Spirit Arts. They are strong enough to penetrate defenses. Any stakes in the air explode and release smaller stakes that fly in all directions which then rips targets apart El Minya (エル・ミーニャ): The spell works very similar to normal Minya. Subaru using "Rental Goa" against Petelgeuse.

Melee Fighter: Subaru grew up an active athlete in his early years in his school, and although he drifted from partaking in any school activities prior to his transportation to the new world, he nevertheless still maintains a strict fitness regimen and as a result, he has raw athletic prowess and a high degree of physical strength, reflex and stamina. Despite all that, Subaru is not a skilled as the very vast majority of the warriors he has met in his two years of living in the New World and can barely hold his own against normal people-according to the author, a fistfight between Otto and Subaru would always end in Otto's win. To somewhat make up for his fighting shortcomings, Subaru has sharp reflexes and demonstrated it when he was able to dodge Felt's confused swings when she confused him for an intruder and Rem's flail attack in the second attempt for his life. Sword Skills: He did kendo in middle school for a bit, so he has some basics in swordsmanship. After his humiliating defeat at the hands of Julius, Subaru received some rough sword training, under Wilhelm van Astrea at the Karsten mansion, Subaru unlocked a basic grasp on swordsmanship that was helped by the kendo he did when he was younger.

However, it should be mentioned that despite the combative skills Subaru picked up from his time in Japan as well as his time in the other world, he was still a low-level combatant overall who would lose to almost every opponent he faced in terms of battle power as he's completely talentless with a blade and is unable to hold his own against anyone who's at least fairly skilled with a sword. Subaru personally mentions that he is able to bench 80kg (176 lbs). Before being teleported into the new world, he maintained a fitness regimen of one hundred push-ups, sit-ups, and squats a day, allowing him extremely above average physical abilities, especially for a hikikomori whose diet consists of mostly convenience store items. Parkour and Survival Skills: During the following year after the incident at the Sanctuary, Subaru learned the basics of parkour from Clind and began training himself. Deductive Ability: Arguably Subaru's greatest asset, aside from Return by Death, is his own mind.
39;s entire right arm has been covered in thick and pulsating black veins.
Though he wasn't blessed with particularly noteworthy intelligence, he has always had great deductive ability, something he prides himself on. This works well with his time-looping, as the information it provides would be useless if he wasn't able to think and act on it to find the optimal course of action. Both Garfiel and Reinhard have complemented Subaru's strategic abilities. Dragon's Blood: After his fight with the Sin Archbishop of Lust and getting infected by her so-called Dragon's Blood, Subaru's entire right arm has been covered in thick and pulsating black veins. During the 5th Arc, it was this liquid that miraculously healed his shredded right leg, after his initial fight with the Sin Archbishop of Greed. Roughly three months later, during the events of Arc 7, Subaru lost his right wrist against a giant Demon Beast snake. Immediately after falling unconscious, Dragon's Blood miraculously healed it, forming an entirely new and fully functioning arm, covered in thick black and pulsating "skin". It was noted by Subaru that the new skin was rubbery to the touch and not as sensitive to the touch as the other parts of his body.
The pseudo-skin was also easily peeled off, revealing fresh skin underneath. Apostle of Greed: For partaking in the Trial of the Sanctuary, Subaru was given the mark of the Witch of Greed Echidna that indicated him as an Apostle of Greed. Because of this title, Subaru was capable of commanding the many replicas of Ryuzu Meyer created by Echidna centuries ago. The replicas were compelled to follow any order they were given, regardless of their own thoughts on the matter. This gift from Echidna essentially bequeathed Subaru with a small army for a time, however, the Witch of Greed eventually took away his title, meaning that he became unable to command Ryuzu's replicas. Guiltywhip: Subaru uses a whip as his main weapon. Like his parkour, Subaru learned the basics of using it from Clind. In the Light Novel, it was revealed that his preferred whip was made of the Demon Beast they fought in Arc 4, the Jet Black King of the Forest Guiltylowe. He named said whip the Guiltywhip. According to the author, Subaru's birthday is April 1, and his birth flower is a Gypsophila elegans, or annual baby's breath. In astronomy, "Subaru" is the Japanese name for the constellation Pleiades. Of which, seven stars in the constellation are named after the Seven Sisters, the daughters of Atlas and Pleione in classical mythology. Due to his name being related to a constellation, Subaru used to have a love and obsession over them, thus having vast knowledge of Earth's stars. It was through this knowledge that he was able to solve of the first trial of Pleiades Watchtower, and deduce the stars the Sin Archbishops were named after corresponded with their abilities (Petelgeuse, "Hand of Orion", Sirius, "Shining", Regulus, "Little King", and Capella, "Little Goat", respectively). He's surprisingly talented at sewing. In the later arcs, his skill improves to the point where he can even make stuffed toys. Before My Fair Bad Lady, he had cross-dressed once in his old life under the name "Schwarz Natsumi". Subaru is the Sin Archbishop of Pride in the Ayamatsu IF, but the short story is non-canonical to the mainline story. Q: Couldn't confessing about Return By Death be used as an instant kill? A: At this point, it's only been confirmed to work on Emilia, so if Subaru feels that he wants to kill Emilia, he might use it.
