Material-L (マテリアルL Materiaru L), is one of the chief antagonists in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's Portable: The Battle of Aces, along with Material-S and Material-D.

She appears again in the sequel A's Portable: The Gears of Destiny, with her new full name, new magic color, new spells, and new Sprite Form.[2]

Name and OriginsEdit

Material-L is a Material, part of the system Unbreakable Dark materialized as a clone of Fate Testarossa during the Dark Fragment Incident. She is thus known among fans as Dark Fate (闇のフェイト Yami no Feito).

Her name is first introduced in The Battle of Aces in English Material-L and in Japanese "Assailant of Thunderblade" (雷刃の襲撃者 Raijin no Shūgekisha) without specific ruby-kanas. The "L" in her name is believed to stand for "Lightning", which is associated with Fate.

In The Gears of Destiny, it is revealed her rubied name is Levi the Slasher (雷刃の襲撃者(レヴィ・ザ・スラッシャー) Revi za Surasshā), which may be shortened as Levi (雷刃(レヴィ)/レヴィ Revi). Levi is a pun on "Levin", an archaic word for "Lightning".


Material-L looks like her original, Fate, except that her hair is light blue instead of blond and her Barrier Jacket has blue where Fate's has red. Her Device is named Vulnificus and shaped like Bardiche Assault but its gem is blue. Unlike Fate, Material-L is very outgoing and often childish, but also prone to going berserk.

One of Material-L's alternate costumes resembles Miku Hatsune.

Alternate continuitiesEdit


Levi appears in both Battle of Aces and Gears of Destiny.

Brave DuelEdit

Levi Russel (レヴィ・ラッセル Revi Rasseru), along Stern, Dearche and Yuri, is student studying abroad in Uminari City. Her school outfit consists of a regular gakuran, a dark purple jacket over a cream school sweatshirt and a white shirt with a pale purple tie. She wears a purple greyish miniskirt, and she wears middle-length white socks and the required brown shoes.

Owning the title "Levi the Slasher", she is an Industry-style duelist of Granz Observatory shop (Dark Materials team) and her primary avatar is Lightning type, with blue (unnamed) color theme, specializing in lightning. Her Brave Duel Device is Vulnificus.


Material-L is one of the most powerful characters in the game, combining Fate's speed in melee with Signum's weapons finesse and long-range defenses and Chrono's extensive Full Drive-enhancement skills.

Barrier JacketEdit

As revealed in The Gears of Destiny: Material Girls., Levi's protective clothing, presumably a Mid-Childan Barrier Jacket, is known as Slash Suit (襲撃服(スラッシュスーツ) Surasshu Sūtsu, lit. Assault Clothing). In The Gears of Destiny, her Barrier Jacket also has a speed-oriented Sprite Form, which is similar to Fate's Sonic Form.
