-Gáe Bolg: Piercing Crimson Lance (ゲイ・ボルク: 穿ちの朱槍, Gei Borugu: Ugachi no Shusō): The spear of Lancer. To differentiate it from his mainstream counterpart's version, it is sometimes called Gáe Bolg Origin. It works much the same way as the mainstream Gáe Bolg, possessing a lethal curse that always strikes the heart and reverses causality so that it pierces the heart before it is used. It has two kind of attack methods; It also possesses the same Anti-Army function as its mainstream counterpart when thrown.
-Magic Resistance (対魔力, Tai-Maryoku, localized as "Anti-Magic"): Grants protection against magical effects. Differently from the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether. Lancer's Magic Resistance cancels spells with a chant below two verses. It cannot defend against Magecraft on the level of High-Thaumaturgy and Greater Rituals, however.
-Divinity (神性, Shinsei): The measure of whether one has Divine Spirit aptitude or not. At high levels one is treated as a mixed race of a Divine Spirit, and the level declines when the Heroic Spirit's own rank as a Monster, Demonic Beast raises. It can also decrease due one's dislike for the gods.
-Protection from Arrows (矢避けの加護, Ya-yoke no Kago): An increased defense against ranged attacks by predicting the projectiles' trajectories through exceptional means, such as hearing the sound of air being cut, or sensing the killing intent of the enemy. As long as the shooter is within Lancer's line of sight, he can track down ranged weapons with his eyes and defend against them. This does not apply for attacks made from super-long-range or with a great area-of-effect, however.
-Rune Magic (ルーン, Rūn, lit. "Rune"): The knowledge about this type of Magecraft, which originated in northern Europe. Lancer can use the 18 original runes.
-Beast Killer: (獣殺し, Kemono koroshi) A skill that indicates the bearer's proficiency in slaying beasts and monsters, gaining bonuses when facing those classified as either of them. As a monster-hunting specialist, Lancer has a B+ Rank in this skill.
