Rupturing Sorcery is the magical skill to force an individual to explode.


Rupturing Sorcery is one of Babidi's most frightening magical abilities. Through a sharp gaze, Babidi transmits his thoughts to his target, and using this magical art, causes the blood within their body to convulse. This causes the body to begin to swell, and eventually explode in a mass of blood and gore. The swelling is not a pleasant way to die, and causes immense pain; the target dies while screaming in agony, and their features are contorted to something not of this world.[3] While making the body explode, Babidi can also cause only the head to explode.[1]


  • In the manga, when Spopovich exploded, his body was rendered in pieces from the blast. In the anime, however, this was censored, and his body was disintegrated entirely when Babidi forced him to explode.
