|Fiamma of the Right|
|Name (Romaji)||Uhō no Fianma|
|Affiliation||God's Right Seat (Former Leader)|
|Ability Name||Holy Right (聖なる右 Seinaru Migi?)|
Fiamma of the Right (右方のフィアンマ Uhō no Fianma?) was the leader of God's Right Seat, the most powerful group inside the Roman Catholic Church. He initiated a series of plans that would cause unrest in key areas around the world, and is ultimately the main cause of World War III. His powers are such that he can literally be compared to entire forces like the Roman Catholic Church and Academy City.
Fiamma’s name is derived from the Italian word for "flame", "Fiamma".
Fiamma is a young man with a lanky physique, golden eyes and fiery red hair, who wears a simple red suit. He is always seen with a calm, calculating expression and a slight smile. After his plans fail, he remarks to Aleister Crowley that his expression must’ve been the same as the one Aleister shows: cold indifference.
He is an arrogant, self-centered, and sarcastic person with many goals, but he is not inherently evil, as he wants to save the world with his power, truly believing that he can bring about absolute good with his plans. He constantly mocks his opponents’ powers because they are no match for his own divine powers. He is described as a solitary and isolated man, compounded by the fact that he (originally) only sees the rest of humanity at its roots as consumed by anger, resentment, and jealousy.
He almost never loses his temper because of his overwhelming confidence, but he showed he can be wrathful and obscene after Kamijou Touma and Acqua of the Back destroy his control over Archangel Gabriel.
At the core of his existence is his obsession with "saving the world" — something he can accomplish with his Holy Right. However, because of that burden he feels, he doubts whether he truly has the power to save the world. Because of that doubt, he hatched Project Bethlehem and other plans to make absolutely sure he did have that power. As Touma points out, Fiamma lost himself when he decided to save the world instead of the people within it — someone who says he will save the world means he cannot protect it in the first place.
After his defeat at the hands of Kamijou Touma, Fiamma’s personality seems to be shifting to a kinder one after he realizes he’s only arrogantly focused on saving the world and ignoring the world’s people. His transformation is said to be almost as if an evil spirit has left him.
He is the leader of God's Right Seat, the shady sect that is even above the Pope in authority within the Roman Catholic Church whose goal is to reach the status of La Persona Superiore a Dio to save humanity from its sins. Due to the nature of the sect's goals, Fiamma is essential to its success; as such, the positions of Back, Left, and Front can be replaced whenever needed. Without Fiamma to spearhead the group's efforts, God’s Right Seat would cease to exist.
Nothing else is known about Fiamma’s past or life before he revealed himself in Volume 16.
Toaru Majutsu no IndexEdit
Acqua’s Pursuit ArcEdit
After Acqua of the Back’s crushing defeat, Terra of the Left's death, and with Vento of the Front still incapacitated, Fiamma finally comes out of hiding before Pope Matthai Reese. Fiamma reveals his true plans to the Pope, to the latter’s horror: he intends to bring England to its knees by using the alliance between the Roman Catholic Church and Russian Orthodox Churches that controls all of Europe, thus luring the Index Librorum Prohibitorum back to England. Seeing the Pope as a nuisance now that his use is forfeit, Fiamma intends to get rid of him. The Pope uses the privileges invested in him to wield the power the two billion Catholics of the world and the old power of St. Peter’s Basilica in an attempt to stop Fiamma, only for him to mock that awesome power.
Fiamma attacks, making the Vatican City’s wide range of magical arrays go haywire while destroying one-third of St. Peter’s Basilica, sending the Pope flying one-hundred meters. Fiamma walks out unscathed, the Holy Right’s Third Arm manifesting, and exposes his end goal to the Pope: to draw out the full power of his Right Hand. For that, he needs to gather certain materials and the knowledge of the Index Librorum Prohibitorum to refine the power of the Right Hand. Fiamma attacks again with the intention to destroy everything, but the Pope takes in the attack by using his power, thus protecting Vatican City from complete destruction; it leaves him in a critical condition however. Fiamma leaves afterward to put his plan into motion.
English Civil War ArcEdit
- Main article: English Civil War Arc
Fiamma arrives in England to mock the defeated Carissa, revealing that he used his influence over the Roman Catholic Church to get the French government to cause unrest within the United Kingdom with the Eurotunnel incident. Carissa made his plan much easier than he had originally intended by distracting everyone with her sudden coup d’état. During all the fighting, Fiamma got a hold of the spiritual remote control for Index’s John's Pen mode that was within Buckingham Palace. Having achieved his goal Fiamma decides to just kill Carissa, but Kamijou Touma arrives right in time to thwart his attack. Fiamma is delighted to see that another major piece of his plan has come to him; though Fiamma says he won’t risk fighting Touma just yet since the remote control might be destroyed. For fun, Fiamma gives a little demonstration of his new toy and summons Index in John’s Pen mode to attack Touma and Carissa. Fiamma reveals he was after the knowledge of the 103, 000 grimoires held within Index, something that the remote control allows him to access. Fiamma takes his leave, saying to Touma that he is going to Russia in order to collect the "materials" and that he needs to call down an Angel — until then, Touma can hold onto Imagine Breaker.
World War III ArcEdit
- Main article: World War III Arc
Fiamma has gone to Russia like he had said, hiding in a fortress. Touma, accompanied by Lessar, spies on him communicating with Bishop Nikolai Tolstoy of the Russian Orthodox Church. He talks about the war strategy and that Sasha Kreutzev is hiding in the Elizalina Alliance of Independent Nations — another person Fiamma needs for his plans. Fiamma makes promises to Nikolai to give him a position of power if he proves himself useful. Since the Russian army and Annihilatus haven’t found Sasha yet, Fiamma intends to get her by himself.
Later, while Touma, Lessar and Elizalina are making plans to find Sasha, Fiamma interrupts the talk and blows away half the ceiling of the compound they were in with a swing of his gargantuan Flaming Sword. Touma manages to block and negate the sword’s power, though Fiamma was misguiding them about his location and counters. A fight ensues, but Fiamma remains on top and is toying with all of them. With Touma struggling and Fiamma taunting him, Sasha arrives as Fiamma had hoped. Fiamma immediately immobilizes her, but is then attacked by a returning Vento of the Front, who was protecting Sasha.
Fiamma and Vento standoff, with the latter showing that she has regained the ability to use magic despite being a member of God’s Right Seat. With little trash talk, Fiamma admits his Holy Right is limited in its current form and he needs Imagine Breaker and Sasha Kreutzev to perfect the Holy Right. Vento comments that Fiamma’s Third Arm is disintegrating, and that Fiamma has a limit to the times he can use the Holy Right before he runs out of stocks. Swiftly, Vento then uses the Queen of the Adriatic Sea that is under her command to attack Fiamma and knock him back kilometers away. Nevertheless, Fiamma remains unharmed, showing that with Index’s spiritual remote control and his access to 103, 000 grimoires, he has surpassed his Third Arm’s limit. Fiamma mercilessly teleports right next to Vento and rips out the tongue chain she is using to command the Queen’s fleet while she was leaping in the air.
Fiamma, standing victorious, tells Vento and Touma of the Distortion of the Laws of the World. Without anyone noticing, the four elements — Earth, Fire, Wind, and Water — were distorted for an unknown reason and left holes that allowed such a thing like Angel Fall to occur: an Angel fell from Heaven and materialized in an imperfect form named Misha Kreutzev. Misha, as it turns out, was actually Archangel Gabriel giving itself a false name — Mikhail being another name for Michael, meaning that Misha was not a name fitting for Gabriel. Because an Archangel’s name represents its role created by God, the fact Gabriel was able to give itself a false name meant the four Archangels’ elements were beginning to creep into each other's. For example, Vento’s element belongs to Archangel Uriel who reigns over Earth, but she is also using the element of Wind which belongs to Archangel Raphael. That distortion is a serious matter, and someone has to do something about it before it is too late, Fiamma proclaims.
Fiamma attempts to finish Vento off, but Touma blocks his attack. There, Fiamma converses with Touma, saying there is no fundamental difference between the two of them and their methods. Both wield their Right Hands to solve problems by shattering something that someone worked desperately to obtain, except Touma uses his to solve the problems around him and Fiamma his own personal problems — selflessness against selfishness.
Fiamma entirely believes what he doing with World War 3 and his Right Hand will bring about absolute good to the world. Touma completely rejects the notion of the so called "good" Fiamma is trying to achieve, considering his methods consist of hurting, manipulating and lying to people. Fiamma abruptly interjects to point out Touma’s hypocrisy, considering that he lied to Index about his lost memories. Because Fiamma shares a mental link with Index, the information they see and hear is shared, so Fiamma guessed Touma lost his memories upon looking into her mind — and now that Fiamma demonstrated the truth, she knows too. Satisfied with leaving Touma frozen in shock and guilt, Fiamma proceeds to snatch the unconscious Sasha and leaves, telling Touma not to die just yet since his Imagine Breaker will be the main dish.
Fiamma returns to his base near the border between the Elizalina Alliance and Russia. He communicates with Bishop Nikolai, where Nikolai express his great doubts over starting a war with Academy City since they are dominating the field with ease. However, Fiamma reveals he has a secret weapon he can unleash to turn things around: the almighty Archangel Gabriel itself. By using Sasha Kreutzev as a base medium, Gabriel can be summoned to be a pawn for Fiamma’s plan: Project Bethlehem.
Fiamma starts to put his plans into motion. Using a magic ritual, every holy item and pieces of churches and cathedrals all throughout the world are attracted to Fiamma’s base in Russia to form the Star of Bethlehem. As the massive construct forms, it begins to rise towards the sky. Touma becomes trapped on it. Fiamma, through speakers, says he was preparing the space necessary to build this flying castle — a ceremonial site or temple, if you will. Fiamma then summons Archangel Gabriel and orders it to recover the lamb-skin document the Accelerator has gotten a hold of.
As Fiamma waits as the pieces of the puzzle assemble, he communicates with Bishop Nikolai and outright admits he’s been swindling the Russian Orthodox Church so that he could have two hundred of their magicians perform the ritual to create the Star of Bethlehem; since a member of God’s Right Seat can’t use normal magic, Fiamma needed that. Nikolai says he can make the Star collapse if he tells his magicians to stop the magic. Fiamma disagrees with the assertion, because thanks to Index’s spiritual remote control he can now use magic — the reason he asked for the two hundred magicians was to learn the spells necessary to keep the Star of Bethlehem afloat by himself. Fiamma tells Nikolai he will "take care" of the magicians onboard, then cuts off the connection. Nikolai frantically orders a subordinate to give the order to blow the Star of Bethlehem away.
Fiamma watches atop the Star of Bethlehem the fight between Kazakiri Hyouka, Accelerator and Archangel Gabriel. Gabriel’s Sweep attacks are damaging the Star of Bethlehem, but it has a certain level of self-rejuvenation. Having strapped Index’s spiritual remote control to a staff as to command Gabriel, Fiamma has no doubts that the monsters of science will fall soon. As Fiamma looks on bored and awaits the recovery of the lamb-skin, William Orwell speaks to him via a telepathic link. The mercenary swears that he will stop Fiamma no matter the cost, and has the means to do it. As he is Acqua of the Back of God’s Right Seat, he is aligned with Archangel Gabriel and the element of water — he is the strongest link to the Power of God. Acqua uses his body to take in half of Gabriel’s Telesma within his human body, weakening the Archangel by one-third of its strength and rendering it vulnerable to attacks and unresponsive to Fiamma’s commands. In a rare moment, Fiamma loses his temper and shouts at the fallen Acqua in fury.
Having lost control over Gabriel, with Touma having destroyed the ritual artifacts chaining Gabriel to the human plane and Accelerator and Kazakiri Hyouka having defeated the Archangel, Fiamma snaps his staff and takes the spiritual remote control from its tip. The one thing Fiamma lacked was the symbols of the Archangels other than Michael held in the lamb-skin. However, since Fiamma had linked himself to Gabriel’s senses, he was able to get the knowledge through the Archangel’s senses even though the lamb-skin was in Accelerator’s pocket.
Fiamma then blasts his way through the fortress to find Touma in the ceremonial chamber he had used to summon Gabriel. Touma says the scales have tipped in his side’s favor now that Gabriel has been defeated. Fiamma refutes that, saying the Archangel’s defeat only means that he needs to finish the ceremony to complete his Holy Right before Academy City or Britain can interfere. Even though Gabriel was defeated, the sky is still dark without stars like in Christian legends, which allows Fiamma to use the Star of Bethlehem to restore elemental balance. Now that the elements have been realigned properly and the world is proper again, Fiamma can use the full might of the Holy Right. Fiamma has a clear intention: kill Kamijou Touma and recover Imagine Breaker.
The Third Arm seeping from Fiamma’s right shoulder becomes far stronger due to the elements returning to their respective Archangel, including Michael, which Fiamma is aligned to — all he needs now is Touma’s right arm as a medium to wield the Holy Right’s full power. Touma confronts Fiamma about his goals and ruthless methods. Fiamma says he needed to draw out all of humanity’s darkness into the form of World War 3 so it was a clear enemy he could target and defeat. Both Right Hand users have a brief fight in which Fiamma uses his Holy Right coupled with the vast amount of spells in Index’s grimoire library against Touma. Fiamma goes on to say God created a perfect system and laid out all the gears to turn in the proper way, but that system was distorted because some gears reached their limit. As he explains, he wants to bring about a new age:
"It is necessary to switch out the gears and in some places, it is necessary to install new mechanisms. I suppose it’s similar to how the internal wiring needs to be worked on a little bit when repairing an old house. And bringing all the ill will to the surface with World War III could be said to be nothing more than removing dust clogging things up. After washing away all the dirt on the gears, Christian model lubricant will be reapplied so that they will regain their light movements. I suppose that’s a good enough metaphor for it all. I think my method is fairly discreet when compared to Noah’s ark. …And even after washing the world with a great flood, the ill will stuck there remained in the world afterwards."
With his perfected Right Hand, Fiamma intends to wield that power to accomplish his goal. Touma questions that, asking Fiamma if he has truly looked at the whole world and seen the happiness in it. Fiamma concedes Touma has an interesting view, but they should think about that after the world is saved. Brutally, with a Sword of Light, Fiamma severs Touma’s Imagine Breaker.
Fiamma begins to assimilate and decompose Imagine Breaker’s flesh and blood into his Third Arm so the Holy Right can manifest one-hundred percent of its power through a physical form — the Imagine Breaker serves as a sort of purification tool, like in Christian lore where the Right Hand shares that trait. Fiamma anguishes as Imagine Breaker begins to eat away at the very core of his power, but the power within Fiamma is so overwhelming at that time that Imagine Breaker couldn’t negate it. Right there and then, Fiamma had achieved the status of The One Above God, the goal of God's Right Seat; his Third Arm no longer withering in its unstable ethereal form — it is now physical. The Heavens above open up to signal the power to save the world has descended to the human plane. A massive amount of golden Telesma descends. Concretely, Fiamma has called in the world were Angels are and turned Earth into paradise; the sky had been dyed by the Heavens.
Seeing Touma as nothing but a purposeless mass of flesh, Fiamma swings his perfected Third Arm to erase him from existence. But it fails, and it looks as if Touma deflected his attack even though he lost Imagine Breaker. Then, Fiamma senses a power overcoming everything he has just reached as The One Above God, and quivers in fear, preparing against the Invisible Thing gathering around Touma’s wound. However, Touma starts to speak with someone other than Fiamma, then crushes the overwhelming power with another power, then regrows Imagine Breaker. Since it is a unique power, it can’t exist within Fiamma’s Third Arm simulations, so it is slowly fading away. Fiamma is astounded by what just happened, but has no time to think it through as Touma speaks up.
Touma then figures out why Fiamma went through the trouble of creating the Star of Bethlehem, why he started World War 3, and why he gathered so many pieces for his plan: Fiamma was afraid his body didn’t truly hold the power to save the world. In the end, Touma concludes, someone who has never saved the world has no way of knowing if they have the power to save it. If Fiamma had reached his hand out to the people before him like Touma does instead of focusing on the concept of "the world," he wouldn’t have to be afraid of not being able to save the world — he wouldn’t have needed an overblown plan because he wouldn’t have felt doubts about his ability to save humanity.
Fiamma gives out an onslaughts of attacks with his Third Arm, then uses the spiritual remote control to make the golden sky rain Telesma upon the Star of Bethlehem. Touma surpasses all odds and survives. Touma then observes that Fiamma is drawing out his power by setting the enemy he must defeat to humanity’s malice. But what if Fiamma was making an incorrect assumption and people’s hearts weren’t filled with malice to the extent he thought? Fiamma reiterates his belief that there is darkness at the root of human nature. But Touma challenges that by saying that even if Fiamma is right, that is not all there is to human nature. People will fight to protect what they hold dear, even if they do not have any special powers. It’s clear, in that instant that, the difference between Fiamma and Touma’s mentality boils down to this: Touma believes in the strength of humanity, while Fiamma does not.
Fiamma keeps on blasting Touma with the power of Index’s 103, 000 grimoires, but with each attack Fiamma’s Third Arm becomes battered and crushed — the source of Fiamma’s power is collapsing. The Anglican, Roman Catholic, and Russian Orthodox churches begin to cooperate to take down the Star of Bethlehem. The virtue in people’s hearts was overcoming the malice, proving Fiamma wrong, thus the base strength he relied on for his plan was fading away.
Touma says Fiamma has lost, and the latter admits he’s at a disadvantage. However, masses of light and energy come from the golden sky above and gather inside the Star of Bethlehem; a massive amount of power flows through the flying castle. Fiamma didn’t call upon that — the virtue caused an unnatural distortion between the Heavens and Earth since the Earth’s purification was supposed to be gradual in Fiamma’s original plan. As a result, the Heavens are filled with Telesma while the Earth is not — the massive power will now pour down onto the Earth and envelop the continent of Eurasia in a destructive light. The malice that will be created by that will power up Fiamma again and crush that glimmer of virtue.
The golden mass of Telesma fell down, but destruction did not occur. Accelerator had blocked it after ascending fully to the Age of Horus. Fiamma is stunned by what happened and that his strategy didn’t work out. Touma isn’t surprised and charges towards Fiamma, destroying the physical shell of Fiamma’s Third Arm, rendering him weak enough so that he can’t rely on his Holy Right’s power. Fiamma then uses the spiritual remote control to attack, but it fails because something occurred to Index’s physical body back in England. Fiamma frantically attempts to reconfigure magical settings to attack, but in the end, Touma punches him and he falls, his illusions now broken.
With Fiamma’s Third Arm having completely faded, the Star of Bethlehem shook and stood still, the power that kept it afloat now gone. Fiamma is dazed, the spiritual remote control out of his grasp after being punched. He is nothing more than a human since his power has receded back into his body. There’s only one escape pod left in the Star of Bethlehem, and Fiamma resigns himself to defeat and his death. But suddenly, Touma grabs him and puts him in the last escape pod. Fiamma, stunned as ever by his actions, asks if that’s really okay since he’s a person that does not understand how vast the world is. Touma responds that he can now go find out on his own, and launches the escape pod.
After the dust settles and the Star of Bethlehem sinks into the Arctic Ocean, Fiamma stumbles out of his escape pod into the empty vastness of the snowy Russia plains. Fiamma thinks he has lost everything. Every major organization will be out for his blood. Now that his power is incomplete without a physical medium, he will run out of times he can use his Holy Right and be defeated by swarms of enemies that will stand before him — a life on the run. Despite that, strength comes back to Fiamma when he realizes he can now decide his future actions now, like Touma had just told him.
Then, a blast obliterates Fiamma’s physical right arm, leaving him in deep pain and staggering. The magic attack had no activation, meaning his Holy Right didn’t protect him. Standing before him is Aleister Crowley — a manifestation of him using some sort of omnipotence, as Aleister appears to be in a different dimension of existence. Aleister praises Fiamma on what he tried to accomplish, but states that Fiamma restrained himself by attempting to become The One Above God within the scope of the Aeon of Osiris — if he had formatted his plan with the Aeon of Horus, Fiamma could’ve reached a status like the one Aleister has attained. Fiamma thinks about Aleister’s accomplishments by being the creator of the supernatural scientific powers and gathering those powers to create an Angel, then asks Aleister if Aiwass is such an attractive entity. Aleister says he wasn’t supposed to reveal his survival to the world this early in his plans. But because Fiamma has seen too deeply into Kamijou Touma’s Right Hand and the fact it isn’t just a Right Hand that negates the supernatural, he can’t let Fiamma live on with that important knowledge.
Fiamma recalls the Invisible Thing that had attempted to manifest after Imagine Breaker had been severed. Aleister tells Fiamma he should what it is if he reevaluates his own actions with a different perspective. Aleister’s plan and Fiamma’s are quite similar — they are both the idea to change the world by preparing a temple filled with strange power, drawing out the power of the Right Hand within that temple, and readjusting the thickness of the phase itself with that power. Fiamma says that none of that matters now; he removes the hand covering up his wound, then his Third Arm manifests physically, using Fiamma’s own blood as a medium. Fiamma decides he won’t let Aleister toy with the world Touma fought to protect against his own selfish plans. Aleister summons his Blasting Rod from another dimension, and the two clash, resulting in Aleister's clear victory. Believing Fiamma to be dead, Aleister leaves the snowy plains of Russia.
But Fiamma hasn’t died. The power within him kept him alive long enough for Ollerus and Silvia to recover him from the snow. Ollerus promises he will hide Fiamma as long as he tells him about his Aeon of Osiris and the Aeon of Horus of Aleister.
Shinyaku Toaru Majutsu no IndexEdit
- Main article: Homecoming Arc
Although Fiamma’s final fate has yet to be touched on after his rescue, the effects of his actions during World War 3 have. Because of what he did, Fiamma destroyed the old rules that controlled the world, including the ones established by Aleister, which has caused his plan centered around Kamijou Touma to become unstable and full of errors beyond the acceptable range.
Baggage City ArcEdit
- Main article: Baggage City Arc
Fiamma finally returns, along with Ollerus, to face the Majin Othinus after the Natural Selector tournament. Having not only defeated Imagine Breaker but the Invisible Thing within Kamijou Touma without effort as well, Othinus is confronted by Ollerus. The two browbeat each other and spar, until Ollerus reveals that Othinus was quite careless in how she handled Touma. In crushing the boy's right hand and the Invisible Thing within him, a certain someone's power to save the world can be activated. Fiamma appears, with his Third Arm deployed despite his right hand still being severed like Touma. The three clash, with the battle ending in a draw. He and Ollerus assist Touma and watch as his crushed arm is restored. The three, under Touma's insistance, begin to use their talents to analyse Marian Slingeneyer's methods so they can restore her victims to normal, including Cendrillon.
Ichihanaran Festival ArcEdit
- Main article: Ichihanaran Festival Arc
Fiamma of the Right is referenced by Ollerus, stating that the latter now owes lunch to him after betting that Touma would take a long time for him to notice Ollerus' presence. However, Fiamma of the Right doesn't appear at all during the entire arc. It is a deliberate attempt by Ollerus to prove that Fiamma of the Right can be hidden and can act freely within a collection of powerful people. It is unknown what Fiamma of the Right was doing during the ordeal.
Lance of Gungnir ArcEdit

GREMLIN invasion of TokyoEdit
- Main article: GREMLIN invasion of Tokyo
After Ollerus failed, Fiamma suddenly appeared behind Othinus and accurately pierced another fairy stake through her heart. Othinus was dumbfounded by this and did not even have time to turn around. Fiamma, with blood trailing down from the corner of his mouth, then explained that he had performed a valuable experiment in Academy City and checked if he could completely hide his presence on a battlefield filled with powerful members of various powerful groups. He said that it seemed to be effective since even the magic god did not detect him and he managed to hit her with the fairy spell. Ollerus then told her that he no longer have an interest in becoming the magic god but he won't allow someone to misuse it. At that moment, it seems that it is all over for Othinus but she just laughed. She then told them that she doesn't care whether she lose, what's important to her is unifying her infinite possibilities. She only needed it to lean in one direction or the other. It did not matter whether she completed the lance and have 100% success or become a fairy and have 100% failure.
Shifting and Fluctuating WorldEdit
In the final recreation of the world by Othinus created specifically to break Touma's spirit, known as the Version_Omega world in-text, where several characters from the original world have been "saved" or have not experienced great tragedy, members of the Gods' Right Seat are all alive and well. Touma sees them in the park where Othinus put Touma in after recreating the world. Vento of the Front walked hand in hand with her younger brother, Terra of the Left is alive and is drinking iced coffee under the same parasol as Fiamma of the Right and Acqua of the Back.
The Holy Right (聖なる右 Seinaru Migi?) is the embodiment of the power of the Right Hand within Christianity, which Fiamma claims has the power to create miracles and destroy all evil outright. The power itself is aligned to Archangel Michael, who occupies God's Right Seat in Heaven, and it is as innate to Fiamma as it is to walk. The Holy Right derives its power from the prominence the Right Hand has in Christian lore, wherein several miracles, rituals, and traditions are performed using the Right Hand. Archangel Michael casted down Lucifer and his fallen angels with the Right Hand; Jesus, the Son of God used his Right Hand to heal the sick; the Bible was written with the Right Hand. The Holy Right is capable of replicating the power all of these original acts held. The Holy Right is as strong as it needs to be. Its strength depends on Fiamma’s needs and the enemy that stands before him — ergo, the Holy Right simply defeats whatever it targets with the precise amount of force needed, no more no less. Touma likened Fiamma’s power to having a "defeat" option in an RPG among the usual commands of "fight", "defend", "magic", and "item". Touma goes onto saying the Holy Right ignores its enemies actions and simply crushes them regardless.
The Third Arm manifests like a mirage-like hand that appears like a malformed bird’s talon that appears to be growing out of Fiamma's right shoulder. It is the outward manifestation of the Holy Right and of the power within Fiamma’s body. Every time Fiamma manifests his Third Arm, it slowly disintegrates into the air. Vento, during her confrontation with Fiamma, refers to a magical theory that says members of God’s Right Seat cannot just use spells other than the special ones that have been adjusted for their use, which Fiamma acknowledges. Fiamma thus has limits to the time he can use his ability and will run out of "stocks" one day, becoming nothing more than a regular human without power when he does so. Fiamma's physical right arm serves to control the Third Arm; when Aleister Crowley blasted it away, Fiamma lost the ability to control the Third Arm with his will. Nevertheless, he still has the Holy Right and it will still work regardless.
Due to the Distortion of the Laws of the World that affected the elemental balance, Fiamma couldn’t use the full might of the Holy Right due to the elements of Archangels becoming ambiguous, thus less powerful. After he set the elements in their proper place, Fiamma was able to wield the unrestrained power of the Holy Right within a perfected world.
Fiamma has demonstrated the following uses for the Holy Right:
- The strike that ends everything it touches — This attack destroys everything it touches without any destructive force.
- The strike that reaches everything when swung — This attack delivers itself right next to its target without any speed or sound.  When he wishes, Fiamma can teleport right next to the target while he delivers that attack, as he did with Vento.
- Flaming Sword — It is powerful 30–40 km magical sword massive enough to resist being negated by Imagine Breaker for some time. This is likely symbolism for the Sword of Michael, said to be a flaming sword used by Archangel Michael to banish Lucifer from Heaven.
- Beam of Light — This attack wasn’t negated by Imagine Breaker, but ricocheted off it and split into multiple beams.
- Sword of Light — This attack was used by Fiamma to sever Touma’s Imagine Breaker.
- Teleportation — Fiamma can teleport anywhere he wishes instantly as long as he has an open horizontal path.
- Mental Communication — As shown when he talked to Vento of the Front and William Orwell.  It’s possible he can only do this with members of God’s Right Seat since he had to use a communication device to speak with Bishop Nikolai Tolstoy.
- During World War III Fiamma of the Right had full control over the Star of Bethlehem, the giant flying-fortress which was designed by him and created with the help of over 2000 magicians. The structure possesses the ability to use Misha Kreutzev's power to turn the day into the night and with that it can be used as a symbol for the 'Star of Bethelemem', the one out of the Christian stories. After every preparations are done, the Star of Bethlehem can summon enough telesma to turn the Earth into the Heaven. With a incomplete summoning it gained enough energy to destroy the whole Eurasian continent with a single giant mass of telesma. After Fiamma's defeat and the failure of his plan, the flying-fortress collapses and falls into the Arctic Ocean.
- Turn into a fairy (妖精化 Yōsei-ka?) — the spell is specifically created to counter Othinus the Magic God and bring her down into a field where she can be defeated.
- Hide Presence — he can successfully hide his presence from anyone to the point that even the magic god cannot detect him.
Index Librorum Prohibitorum's John's Pen Controller: After Second Princess Carissa's coup d'etat Fiamma of the Right was able to obtain the controller, wherewith he was able to activate the Defense Mode of Index, use all her memorized spells even if she was in a place different by his, and with the help of Index's magicial knowledge he can use his Holy Right as long as he wants. The controller was, along with Misha Kreutzev, the Star of Bethlehem, and Imagine Breaker, one of the keys to unlock the full potential of the power of his Holy Right's Third Arm. In Fiamma's final fight with Kamijou Touma, the controller was destroyed after the Level 0 touched it with his Imagine Breaker.
Character Art DesignsEdit
Fiamma of the Right's design remains static throughout the series. According to Haimura, he was tasked on designing Fiamma of the Right to be refreshing, but had difficulty as the color red was a difficult color to express freshness.
- Fiamma uses the Japanese pronoun "Ore-sama" to refer to himself, meaning "The Glorious Me" — a linguistic trait used in the Japanese language to convey extreme rudeness and arrogance for a character's speech patterns. Due to certain linguistics, Japanese to English translations can't convey this properly without swapping every instance of "I" Fiamma utters to "The Glorious Me."

- (Volume 16, speaking to the defeated Pope about the Holy Right): "The Son of God used His Right Hand to cure the illnesses of the sick and revive the deceased. It was the Right Hand which drew the Cross and scattered the Holy water used for the Baptism of Christ. Furthermore, the Right Hand of The Likeness of God has the distinction of being the greatest weapon in history, having cast down an uncountable number of Fallen Angels; even The One Who Challenged the Light was defeated when opposed by the Right Hand of The Likeness of God. It is such an overwhelming power."
- (Volume 20, as he reveals himself to Touma, Lessar and Elizalina): "That’s true. You’re much too late if you’re still strategizing at this stage."
- (Volume 20, talking to Touma): "You’re the main dish. I need to make some preparations before eating you."
- (Volume 21, after Acqua has drained Gabriel): "That bastard... THAT BASTAAAARRRDD!!!!!"
- (Volume 22, narrowing down why he caused World War 3): "Even if you possess a sword with which to slay the lord of the demons, you cannot swing down that sword if the incarnation of evil does not stand before you."
- (Volume 22, to Touma after slicing off Imagine Breaker): "I will save this world. You are no longer necessary to do that. You should be honored, you mass of flesh. You managed to carry out your purpose in life."
- (Volume 22, talking to Touma as he put him on the last escape pod): "I am a person who does not understand just how vast the world is."
- (Volume 22, speaking to Aleister Crowley about his failure): "I could not do it. I should have had the power needed to save this world just like the Son of God. And yet I could not do it."
- (Volume 22, defiantly standing up to Aleister Crowley): "When I see you, I can feel the futility of what I did. Most likely, I had that same look on my face. And someone who can truly save the world would not have that expression on his face. ...At that time and in that place, he stood in a position where no one could overtake him."
- (NT Volume 8, after piercing Othinus with the fairy stake): “I checked to see whether I could completely hide my presence on a battlefield filled with powerful members of various powerful groups. It seems my method was effective even on a magic god. …And thanks to that, I managed to hit you with the fairy spell.”
