Max Elephant ( (ばん) (しょう) Banshō?) is an elephant shikigami that can be summoned by the Ten Shadows Technique of the Zenin Family.


Max Elephant is a large elephant with black markings on its forehead, the top of its head, its back, and its knees.

Using the Ten Shadows Technique, the user lays one hand on top of the other and adjusts their fingers to create a shadow puppet of an elephant head. The Elephant is summoned from the user's shadow, but this requires some time as well as a large amount of cursed energy.[1]


Max Elephant unleashing a large water wave from its trunk.

Max Elephant is capable of unleashing a massive torrent of water from its trunk. The water is blasted with enough volume and pressure to flood an entire corridor and forced Noritoshi Kamo through a solid wall to the outside of the building. This allowed Megumi to set up a follow-up attack using Nue since Noritoshi was virtually defenseless in mid-air.[2]

Megumi used Max Elephant's weight to his advantage while fighting Awasaka. He summoned Max Elephant in the air and used the massive shikigami's weight to crash down on his opponent. Awasaka's Inverse technique allowed him to survive, but Max Elephant was just apart of the pressure Megumi was attempting to apply to his opponent.[3]

Megumi using Max Elephant to crush Awasaka.

While fighting Chizuru Hari and Reggie Star's group in the Culling Game, Megumi summoned Max Elephant after getting his second wind. After learning his objective in the Tokyo No. 1 Colony had been fulfilled by Yuji, Megumi emphatically summoned Max Elephant and used its sheer size to force Hari outside the building they were fighting in.[4]

Megumi dropping Max Elephant on Reggie from the shadows of the domain above him.

Megumi kept Max Elephant summoned and used it to pursue Reggie through the streets. It attempted to douse Reggie in water in order to render his cured technique ineffective. However, Reggie was able to avoid the shower and gout out of Max Elephant's range. Megumi normally only uses Max Elephant alone due to how much cursed energy it consumes, but he also used Rabbit Escape, further exhausting himself at that time.[5]

Chimera Shadow Garden improved Megumi's technique's precision, allowing him to replicate Max Elephant's weight realistically inside his domain.[6] He used the shadows of the domain above Reggie to drop Max Elephant on top of him. Megumi was carrying the immense weight of cars Reggie dropped into his shadow and using Max Elephant evened the playing field.[7] Reggie attempted to activate his technique while trying to hold up Max Elephant and failed, succumbing to the weight and falling into the shadows of the domain.[8]
