Black snakes with deep red eyes grow from Azami's head as her hair, which is a typical feature of a Medusa, but 10 with abilities were her most significant. These snakes are created from Azami's strong feelings and are manifestations of her instinctive wishes.[1] Each snake has a set of supernatural abilities that it grants to its owner to help fulfill a specific wish; acting towards this wish is the reason for each snake's existence.[2] In the real world, most of her snakes are not sentient with the exception of the Snake of Clearing Eyes, which is the snake that gave Azami the idea of creating the Kagerou Daze, and Konoha. In the Kagerou Daze itself, the snakes have been shown to be able to talk to their future owners.[3][4]

A snake can act as a surrogate for a person's life. After Shion and Marry were murdered by humans, Azami ordered the Kagerou Daze to swallow them, as time does not pass there. Azami then gave Marry the Snake of Combining Eyes, also known as the Queen Snake, so she would be able to return alive to the real world. However, this caused Azami to lose control of the Kagerou Daze, and it continued her order to swallow up people who die on the day Shion and Marry did, August 15. To follow the Queen Snake that is now in real world, the snakes began to leave the Kagerou Daze through the bodies of humans who entered it with a strong wish that can be fulfilled with their abilities.[5]

A snake can stop existing if its owner's wish can no longer be fulfilled by its abilities, be it because the wish has been completely fulfilled or by other circumstances, and if its owner has no other strong wishes that it can fulfill.[6][7]

The Snake of Clearing Eyes (目が冴える蛇 Me ga Saeru Hebi)

He was created from Azami's wish to understand who she is.[8]

Because Azami stopped having the wish that created him after meeting Tsukihiko, he gained sentience and devised a plan to destroy and rewind the world with the Kagerou Daze and Marry's Combining Eyes. [9][10]

In his subsequent owners, he exists through their main wish and possesses their bodies to both act towards their wish and his plan. He avoids completely fulfilling their wish to prevent himself from losing sentience.

He ends up possessing Konoha in every route, using Awakening Eyes to change his appearance and give him superhuman strength.

This snake is owned by Kenjirou Tateyama (Music, Novel, Mekakucity Actors Routes), who wished to see his deceased wife again, Hibiya Amamiya (Manga Route 2), who wished to save Hiyori, and Hiyori Asahina (Mekakucity Actors), who wished to be alive and out of the Kagerou Daze.

Notes


  • Although Locking Eyes has been shown to give Azami the ability to turn people into stone, it did not possess Shion or Marry, as they inherited this ability from Azami. Shion could turn people into stone (although requiring too much energy for her to handle) and Marry can temporarily paralyze anyone who looks into her eyes. This is not counted as one of her 10 Abilities.
  • The light novel has pages with black backgrounds and white text when there's a direct interaction with a snake (besides altered forms like Clearing Eyes' possessions or Konoha).[18][19][20][21]
