Kurumi Tokisaki (時崎 狂三, Tokisaki Kurumi) is the third Spirit to appear, and so far the most brutal spirit in the series. She is also the first Spirit to appear as an antagonist in the Date A Live series.

However, Kurumi is later revealed to be not truly malicious, as she tries to drain humans' lifespan to gather power to travel back in time and kill the First Spirit, whose appearance caused the devastating spacequake that killed 150 million people.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

By herself (her clones can also use these):
  • <City of Devouring Time>: Uses a red barrier to trap and consume other people's life force to refill hers.
  • Spacequakes: These occur when Spirits from the alternate dimension occasionally appear in the human world, bending the wall between dimensions and resulting in large-scale explosions. All Kurumis can summon and dismiss these at will.
With Zafkiel (only the real Kurumi can use these):
To activate any power she needs, she first needs to call her Angel (regardless of whether or not the Angel has been summoned already), and position her flintlock at the number of the bullet on the Angel. Next, she needs to shoot the bullet at the target with the gun. In the event that she needs to use the power on herself, then she is required to shoot herself.
