    World Trigger Wiki
    (Redirected from Gen'yō Kogetsu)

    So the tip changes shape. That's why it kept getting me when I thought I dodged.

    Yūma Kuga, in Chapter 15.[1]


    Gen'yō ((げん)(よう) Lit. Phantom Dance ?) is an Optional Trigger exclusive to Kogetsu,[3][4] including its spear variant.[2] An attack carried out using this Trigger takes the name of Gen'yō Kogetsu ((げん)(よう) ()(げつ) Lit. Phantom Dance Crescent Moon ?).[2]

    Appearance[edit source]

    Gen'yō has no physical manifestation outside of its effect on Kogetsu, whose blade it enables the user to morph at will.[1]

    Overview[edit source]

    The origins of this Trigger are unknown. Due to its function, it cannot have been created before Kogetsu.

    Abilities[edit source]

    Gen'yō circumventing Ranbanein's Shield.

    Gen'yō allows the user to freely manipulate the shape of Kogetsu's blade. It is often used as a counter-countermeasure as the user launches an attack with Kogetsu: if the target attempts to dodge,[5] the blade can be morphed in order to anticipate or follow their movement,[1] or it can be made to go around any defense they interpose.[2] This latter application is especially useful against Triggers that adversely affect weapons they come in contact with.[6] Particularly skilled users can synchronize the activation of Gen'yō so precisely that the opponent might fail to see the blade morph and to understand how they have been hit.[5]

    Users[edit source]

    See also: Gen'yō Users

    There are only two known users of Gen'yō:[7][4] Yōsuke Yoneya through his spear[2] and Yūta Miura in conjunction with a standard Kogetsu.[4] The former is particularly remarkable for seamlessly integrating the Trigger in his combat style. Members of branches who do not participate in Rank Wars are excluded from the count.[8]

    Trivia[edit source]

    • The name of this Trigger was revealed 45 chapters[2] after it was first shown in use.[5]

    8. Daisuke Ashihara: Q: Are there any branches besides Tamakoma and Suzunari?
      A: Border has 6 branches: Tamakoma, Suzunari, Wataayu (綿(わた)(あゆ) ?), Yumite District ((ゆみ)()(まち) ?), Hayanuma ((はや)(ぬま) ?), and Kuma (()() ?). Its personnel are mostly those who prioritise work or school and don’t aim for A-Rank (they do not participate in the twice a week Rank Wars). The branches are placed on the outer edge of the Forbidden Zone. Other than Tamakoma, the branches function as a point of contact for local residents.
