But even you guys can't face a multiple attack in the air.[2]

First appearance

Scene 2, Anime Scene 2


"Winged Yoma" derives from the US FUNimation dub. In the cold open of Anime Scene 2, Clare mentions a "winged Yoma."[3]

In the manga Clare mentions a 飛行タイプ (flying type).[4] Also 羽つきが二 (the two with wings).[5]


These Yoma possess leathery, bat-like wings.

They may simply be a winged variant of ordinary Yoma. Rarest of Yoma.[6] Sometimes awakened beings take the form of Winged Yoma.[7]


Winged, they differ from ordinary Yoma by their flying ability, thus presenting a greater challenge to Claymore warriors.

Difficult to fight. Warriors have speared them by hurling swords from street-level[8] or rooftop[9] But if a skilled warrior can jump high enough, Winged Yoma can be attacked midair.[10]



In the town of Strah, Clare engages a Yoma pack. She uses the spear method of thrown sword, hurling the sword skyward to pierce the Winged Yoma.[11]

Thrown sword in action

Witch's MawEdit

A Clare in male drag meets five men in Zakol Mountains. She suddenly kills three of them.[12]

The remaining two men awaken into Yoma and attack. Clare dodges them, leaping sky-high. But two Winged Yoma attack Clare from above.[13]

Clare shreds both fying Yoma. She lands, then shreds the two Yoma. As they fall apart, they taunt her saying she is seeking her own death.[14]


In Lacroix, among the crowd of spectators, a woman awakens. Clare and Cynthia fight the female awakened, while Yuma knocks unconscious a search and rescue mission.[15]

Cynthia and Clare whittle down the Awakened's false body—the true body tries to escape as Winged Yoma-like entity.[16] Yuma uses a thrown sword and minces the wings. Cynthia and Clare then kill the awakened.[17]
