Tarasque (タラスク, Tarasuku?), the Giant Iron Armored Dragon (大鉄甲竜, Dai Tekkō Ryū?), is the tyrannical dragon that was tormenting the people of southern France in the 1st Century.[1] A gigantic head, a shell that grew sharp spikes on it, six legs, and a long tail with spikes containing a poison similar to a scorpion’s growing on it; the Tarasque is surely a monster that possesses such features, and it is reported to be the son of the Leviathan as written down in the Old Testament. Being one of the Dragon Kind, and viewed as a monster that can freely move on both land and water, the Tarasque lurked in the Rhône River, sinking ships and eating people; its hard shell entirely repelled all the blades and arrows of the warriors called upon to subjugate it, and it went to breathe out fire at them until they burned out. The one who suppressed such an invincible monster was Saint Martha.[2] Martha is capable of summoning it as her Noble Phantasm.[1]

O’ Dragon’s Shield that Shall Not Let a Blade PassEdit

Tarasque: O’ Dragon’s Shield that Shall Not Let a Blade Pass (刃を通さぬ竜の盾よタラスク, Ha o Tōsanu Ryū no Tate yoTarasuku?) is the Noble Phantasm of Saint Martha. It temporarily summons the shell of the monster Tarasque, protecting Martha and her allies. Drastically increases the defensive power of a (single) ally; otherwise, physical damage is nullified for a short duration.[2]

O' Tragic Drake Who Knew Naught of LoveEdit

English | Japanese

“A miracle!”
“O', Tragic Drake Who Knew Naught of Love... Like a star! "Tarasque"!!”


Tarasque: O' Tragic Drake Who Knew Naught of Love (愛知らぬ哀しき竜よタラスク, Ai Shiranu Kanashiki Ryū yoTarasuku?) is the Noble Phantasm of Saint Martha. It is the summoning and usage of the monster Tarasque. The reading is the same as the “O’ Dragon’s Shield that Shall Not Let a Blade Pass” Noble Phantasm. The Tarasque summoned as Martha’s Noble Phantasm thoroughly burns and smashes the enemy camp into nothingness with its Giant Iron Armored Dragon’s Scorching Great Spin Attack.[2]

O' Tragic Drake RageEdit

English | Japanese

“O' Lord, please close your eyes for a while...”
“O' Dragic Drake Who Knew Naught of Love, come. Like a star! Tarasque! ...Sei! There's nowhere to run! Iron Fist Holy Judgement!”


Tarasque: O' Tragic Drake Rage (荒れ狂う哀しき竜よタラスク, Arekuruu Kanashiki Ryū yoTarasuku?) is the Noble Phantasm of Saint Martha in her swimsuit.

Iron Fist Holy Judgement. A fearsome Anti-Unit Noble Phantasm that looks like Tarasque’s prayer taking form, a prayer of not wanting to be only treated like before. While Tarasque comes flying in to crash onto the target, Martha gives further damage with a barrage of fists. Although it appears as if Tarasque is being struck by the barrage, because Martha is swinging her fists with the same striking method as a kind of “sunkei” that “goes through” it, there is no damage done to Tarasque, and all the damage appears to be delivered to the target that is underneath Tarasque————or so it seems.

Tarasque’s voice: “Stop, it is quite painful![3]
