Capturing Thread (捕獲糸 Hokaku Ito)[1] is a binding spell cast by Jail Scaglietti in StrikerS. The binding threads come out from the earth in a way similar to Struggle Bind.

The threads of the cage are made of AMF-like energy, thus have a strong resistance to magic defensing and physical breaking. To resist, it requires physical blow or sharp slash that overpowers the thread's energy volume.

Notable usesEdit

  • In StrikerS (ep.22), with a finger snap as action trigger, Scaglietti uses it in his secret hideout to trap/bind Fate T. Harlaown. The threads are even strong enough to break the energy blade of Bardiche Zanber under Scaglietti's command.
  • It is used again in StrikerS (ep.24) to bind Fate, but is later dispelled when Fate overdrives herself into True Sonic Form. Scaglietti then attempts to bind Fate again when she approaches, but the threads are all cut by Bardiche Assault's Riot Zanber.


Thread Cage is an application of Capturing Thread as cage-type capturing spell.
