Canis Lykaon, also known as Inugami of the Black Blade, is a Longinus wielded by Tobio Ikuse. It is an independent avatar Longinus.


When Tobio was born with the Sacred Gear Canis Lykaon, it was one of the rare instances where it already had its Balance Breaker fully activated. Because of this his grandmother; Ageha Ikuse used a buddist sealing ritual to seal away the Canis Lykaon. After discovering his Sacred Gear, Tobio decided to name the dog Jin.


The Canis Lykaon initially takes the form of a puppy with a sword on it's forehead. In its real form, it is a large dog with a sword on its forehead.


Canis Lykaon has the ability to summon a black dog that is capable of moving independently from its wielder with its own instinct. The dog produces blades from his body and can transform itself into a sword.

During his fight with Doumon, Tobio's rage gave Jin another new ability: to enter and attack through shadows. The shadow can extend up to Tobio's field of vision.


Night Celestial Slash Dogs: The Balance Breaker of Canis Lycaon. Tobio transforms with darkness into a humanoid black Hound with six tails and Jin transforms into a big Black Hound. In this form, not only does Tobio gain enhanced strength, he can create an innumerable amount of blades, capable of tinging the sky and earth in darkness. Unlike most Balance Breakers, this form requires a chant to activate.

The chant Tobio Ikuse recites to activate this form is as follows:

<< — I sing for the slaying of a thousand humans >>
<< — I celebrate the slaying of ten thousand goblins >>
<< — The name submerged in total darkness, that of the imitation god that drifts through the :polar night >>
<< — Thou will perish by mine own black blade >>
<< — To be something absurd, the god {creator} of the deformed >>
