Akame Ga Kill! Wiki

Purgatory's Invitation: Rubicante was an Elemental-type Teigu in the form of a flamethrower that gave its users the ability to instantly burn anything. It was owned by Bols until it was destroyed after self-destructing.


Rubicante was an offensive Teigu that created a stream of flames whenever activated. The flames were so intense that they could not be extinguished, even if submerging oneself in water, burning until the target was killed by them. It gains its power from the large cylinder which acts like a jet engine turbine by aerial suction and heating the air. The cylinder on it could cause a huge explosion, and could be used as a final resort, as it could be set to explode by pressing a button. However, it destroys the Teigu.

Trump Card[]

Magma Drive (岩漿錬成マグマドライブ, Maguma Doraibu): The trump card of Rubicante, which fired individual blasts of fire at the target, giving the Teigu longer range capabilities than usual.


  • Rubicante is the name of one of the thirteen devils that guard the eighth circle of Hell in Dante's Inferno.
  • Rubicante's fire abilities might have been inspired by Rubicante from Final Fantasy. In this setting, Rubicante is the Elemental Archfiend of Fire.
  • The fact that Rubicante's flames were impossible to extinguish possibly alludes to the real-world usage of napalm as flamethrower fuel, as napalm is known to stick to the victim's skin with no effective ways to remove it until it burns out completely.
