Fate purging her Barrier Jacket
|Primary caster||Fate Testarossa|
|Japanese name||ジャケットパージ |
|First app.||A's (ep.10)|
Jacket Purge (ジャケットパージ Jaketto Pāji) is a defensive function of a mage's Barrier Jacket, with which the caster takes the initiative to "unravels" in a second all the mana used to comprise his/her Barrier Jacket to cause a blast.
- It is first seen in A's (ep.10), using by Fate Testarossa against the tentacles of the Scarlet Dragon, with command phrase "Barrier Jacket, purge!". She simultaneously sets up (collectively form-changes to) Sonic Form and brings Nanoha Takamachi away from those tentacles.
- In Reflection, Nanoha uses this function to escape from the capturing wires from Kyrie Florian's Mobile Shells.
- In ViVid (ch.97), together with the mana from her collapsing three-layer defenses, Vivio Takamachi purges her Barrier Jacket to create a blast, and takes advantage of its shock to break away from Nanoha's Blaster 2 Starlight Breaker, as explained by Teana Lanster and flashed back in ViVid (ch.98).
Reactor Purge is the passive and reactive version of Jacket Purge for last-resort defense.
