Goddess of War: War God's Military Sash (戦神の軍帯ゴッデス・オブ・ウォー, Senjin no GuntaiGoddesu obu Wō?) is a sash belonging to Hippolyta, remodeled from an offshoot of the war banner of her father Ares. It is a band of fabric with a plain pattern drawn on it that she wears on her arm. Despite its appearance, it seethes with an abnormal amount of magical energy and possesses a divine aura thick enough to make it seem like a god itself had used it. Gilgamesh comments that the aura is different than the Babylonian gods with which he is familiar with but notes that it possesses the same roots. Wearing it greatly increases the user's Divinity, Strength, Endurance, Agility, and Mana parameters. Its strength cannot exceed a certain point due to Mystery in modern society being weak.[1] It is said that in a battle between the sash owned by her and the version owned by Alcides through King's Order that the "wielder of the true Noble Phantasm would win."[2]

Gilgamesh has called the sash a "legacy a god forced on humans." Hippolyta and Alcides' use of the sash greatly differs from one another. Hippolyta primarily uses it to empower herself by surging the energy in the sash throughout her body. Even with the power limited due to the amount of Mystery in the modern age, it is still a formidable Noble Phantasm. Its power is enough to allow Hippolyta to cause an eruption with a single punch.

Penthesilea also possesses the sash, wearing it around her waist rather than on either arm. However, it is uncertain whether the sash she holds is the same one possessed by her older sister, Hippolyta.[3]

VariationsEdit

Goddess of War (True Archer)Edit

Goddess of War: War God's Military Sash (戦神の軍帯ゴッデス・オブ・ウォー, Senjin no GuntaiGoddesu obu Wō?) is the sash possessed by Hippolyta, obtained by Heracles during his Ninth Labor of the Twelve Labors. It is possessed by Alcides through the King's Order Noble Phantasm.[4] Exactly the same as that possessed by Hippolyta, he wears it on his left arm.

While Alcides does make use of the sash, he only allows its energy to imbue and strengthen his weapons. Tine noted that he is actively preventing the energy from entering his body due to his hatred of the gods.

Even with the power limited due to the amount of Mystery in the modern age, it is still a formidable Noble Phantasm. Its power is enough to allow Alcides to keep up with Gilgamesh's Gate of Babylon.
