~ Crona
Crona is girl a tragic villain in the Soul Eater series, the abused child of Medusa. Though referred by others with male pronouns, Crona's actual sexual identity is girl.


Crona has an androgynous appearance, with a thin body and tall stature. The pink hair is badly cut with straight cut bangs ununiformly above the eyebrows with two longer pieces of hair extending from the bangs and hang low over Crona's face. Most of the time, Crona wears a long black tight fitting Purtian-like robe that ends at the mid-calf level with cuff-links at the ends of each sleeve and a tall white button-up collar at the neck. Black slipper-like shoes with a tall white cuff protruding out of the top are also worn.

For formal occasions, Crona wears a white suit: the suit is very plain, with long, un-detailed pants and a coat with long sleeves and a collar. The coat appears to fasten at the front and back.

Crona as a child

As a child, Crona wore a girly black knee-high dress. The dress has a rugged cut-out at the bottom, laced with several white diamonds. Like the present-day clothing, the childhood design also has a white collar and cuffs. The shoes stay relatively the same, as well. Crona's hair is shorter and simpler in this stage, but overall the same design.

After being "re-shaped" by Medusa, Crona's attire changes to an all-black girly robe covered by thick folds of fabric covering the feet (slightly similar to Arachne's dress). When asborbing the Black Clown, Crona's clothes gain several steel/cloth plates covering the shoulders and the waist.


"I hate, hate, hate everyone…but that's alright. I can use my screams to blow them all away. I bet dead people are a lot easier to get along with."
~ Crona, Episode 16

Crona's "I don't know how to deal with this".

Having been abused at a young age, Crona is a very naive and submissive girl who Medusa conditioned to kill by having the child torture small animals to remove all hesitation. This also makes Crona a bit of a pushover due to being bullied by Ragnarok and the child's inability to cope with anything good or bad. Having been conditioned to have the same mindset as Asura in admitting to be afraid of everything and everyone unable to understand, Crona is prone to become dangerously unstable with the proper motivation. In that state of mind, Crona shows signs of insanity and aggression, spouting senseless comments and laughing at random moments. But after Maka befriended the child, Crona started to become self confident and begin to distinguish the difference between good and evil. But though Crona wants to interact with other, it is a slow process despite being touched by the kindness of the child's newfound friends. But only Maka, whose can see Crona's Soul Wavelength can understand the child. However, Crona is coerced back into working for Medusa and returned to her side with memory relating to Maka and others removed. However, Medusa's final actions were what cause Crona's descent into utter madness with almost no chance of redemption.

In the anime, Crona becomes more determined and courageous when he/she decides to go and defeat Medusa and rescue Stein alongside Marie and Maka. Although still nervous and unsettled by Medusa, Crona stands up to her and even risks his/her life for Maka. In the anime, Crona also seems to have a good sense of direction, being able to navigate both himself/herself and Marie through DWMA and Medusa's lair.


Throughout the series, Crona's gender is girl up due to the child's girl appearance and voice. Although hints are given, Crona's gender has yet to be exactly stated. It is important to note in the japanese version that Crona uses the masculine pronoun "Boku" or "Watashi "for self reference. However, though originally used by males, those pronouns have become used by females as or late.[1] Furthermore, Medusa always calls Crona as "my child", referring to Crona as an "it" and never referring something more specific as "son" or "daughter". Soul and Maka often refer to Crona as "him", when they are not calling Crona by name.


Crona's blood has been entirely replaced with 'Black blood' which both protects Crona from physical harm and provides a degree of healing. Ragnarok, originally a normal weapon, was melted into the black blood before the transfusion, which causes their symbiotic nature with part of Ragnarok forming into the child's sword to use Scream Resonate and attacks that use the Black Blood like the Bloody Needle projectiles. After absorbing enough Souls, Crona can use the Black Dragon ability to create wings of black blood from a dragonized Ragnarok to take flight. The possession of Black Blood also allows Crona to assimilate those with the same blodd, using in on the Black Clown to don two new appendages each armed with a Ragnarok-type sword.

Medusa later enhanced Crona to use a more potent version of the Black Blood called Mad Blood, trapping an opponent in an enlarging ball of blood to consume an entire city in utter madness. Though possibly able to use magic like Medusa due to being a witch's child, it has yet to be verified. After killing Medusa, Crona's powers increased to using shadows as weapons. After assimilating Asura, Crona became near-god-like in power to the point of damaging the moon during the epic battle that ensued there. In the anime, despite having no onscreen training, Crona successfully pulls off a Chain Resonance with Maka and Marie.


Crona's weapon, as well as part of his/her blood. When Crona was a child, Medusa melted down Ragnarok, at that time a regular weapon, and combined him with black blood. She then injected this mixture into Crona's own blood, creating an unwilling symbiosis and permanently fusing Crona with Ragnarok.
Ragnarok is a playful character, and acts like an annoying older brother to Crona. He often gives the meister noogies, steals his/her food, plays with his/her nose, and even lifted up Crona's robe at one point, almost exposing the underwear. Whenever Ragnarok is angry with his meister, he will not hesitate to pop out of him/her and begin attacking Crona in an annoying, playful, but slightly violent way. He also uses Crona as a human shield at times, notably only for non-lethal attacks, like Maka Chop.
However, despite his teasing, Ragnarok does seem to care about Crona. He heals Crona whenever needed (although always pestering for a "thank you very much" afterword) and provides constant vocal motivation during battle. Ragnarok realizes that if Crona dies, he will die too, ultimately driving him to protect his meister as much as possible.
Maka Albarn

Maka's and Crona's souls come to peace.

Crona's first friend, they share a similar soul wavelength. It was during the Underground Shibusen battle in which the Kishin was revived where Maka and Crona became friends: after seeing into Crona's soul and realizing the emptiness and sadness of his/her past, Maka came to understand Crona on a deep level. Not long after, Maka gave Crona presumably his/her first loving physical contact when she hugged him/her and gave him/her a handshake.
After the Underground Battle, Maka and Crona become formidable friends. It is with Maka's help that the meister learns how to fit into Shibusen, and at first Crona won't even leave a room without Maka. Although the strong relationship seems to be one-sided at times (as Maka has many friends and often does not spend time on-screen with Crona) ultimatly Maka's love for Crona is shown when she decides to help Crona defeat Medusa rather then help Shibusen bring down the Kishin at Baba Yaga Castle. This choice would ultimately save Crona's life for the time being.
Crona's blood mother, and the one who fused the black blood (containing Ragnarok) into Crona's blood. Medusa seems to act towards her child as if he/she were a servant and is overall less of a mother and more of an enemy. She, as of yet, has not displayed any definitive affection for Crona.
Medusa trained Crona in the hopes that he/she would one day rise to become the next Demon God. However, as it grows more and more apparent that Crona does not have the will to fulfil this task, Medusa speaks often of "throwing out" her unneeded child. Once Crona attends Shibusen, however, she forces Crona to be a spy and complete tasks for her.
In the anime, Medusa ultimately has no problem seemingly mortally wounding Crona, enticing Maka's fury. However, in the manga, she claims that Crona has been captured and that no parent wants their child to be sacrificed (though this turns out to be a ruse in order to manipulate Maka further).


As a toddler, Crona was subjected to Medusa's experiment involving a blood transfusion of a madness inducing liquid called Black Blood. As a result, Crona entered a forced symbiosis with a weapon that was melted into the Black Blood, the Demon Sword Ragnarok. From there, from killing small animals to suffering various forms of torture through Raganrok's bullying and a merciless mother's methods of punishment, Crona is raised for Medusa's purpose to destroy the world by consuming enough souls to become a Kishin and then merge with the original Kishin Asura.

Eventually, while having Ragnarok devour the souls of a gang in Italy's Santa Maria Novella Basilica on Medusa's command, Crona is confronted by Maka Albern and her Weapon partner Soul Eater Evans. The two meisters quickly engage in battle with the fight ending in Crona's favor as Soul is mortally wounded with some the Black Blood making Ragnarok entering the Weapon's bloodstream. Luckily, Maka's father Spirit and his former Meister Franken Stein arrive and defeat Crona as his Soul Resonance with Ragnarok is failing to the point of internal damage. Luckily, Medusa made her presence known and takes her child to safety.


Crona and Ragnarok before their second battle with Maka.

Crona's next confrontation with the DWMA was on the Nidhogg, confronted by Death the Kid as was investigating the ghost ship. After having Ragnarok devour the souls that the Nidhogg's captain was intending to offer to Asura, Crona states his intend to become a Kishin to no longer be afraid. Eventually, due to the strain of dealing with both Kid and the Nidhogg's captain, Crona splits the ship in half and flies off in Ragnarok's Black Dragon form.


Maka is the only person to reach out to the happiness in Crona's soul.

When Medusa enacts her plan to revive Asura, Crona is set up as a guard for a portion of the hallway leading to the Kishin's resting place to keep the DWMA from interfering. Though Black Star was to fight Crona, Maka engages in battle instead for her previous encounter. But like before, Crona had the upper hand until the Black Blood inside Soul is activated with Maka getting a boost despite slowly descending into madness herself. This causes the fight to be a stalemate until Maka sees into Crona's soul and learns of the horror the child had suffered at Medusa's hand. This causes Maka to break free from her madness to purify Crona by offering the child her friendship.

Despite being welcomed by the DWMA and accepted as a student, Crona is placed in a tough situation when Medusa returns and drafts the child to serve as her spy and carry out her dirty work like bugging Marie with one of her snakes to intensify Stien's madness. Guilt ridden, and learning that Maka overheard the child's earlier discussion with Eruka, Crona leaves the DWMA without saying goodbye. Medusa uses that to her advantage by lying that Arachnophobia kidnapped Crona to serve as a sacrificial offering to trick the DWMA into helping her take Arachne's body. Once the deed is done, Medusa reveals that truth while telling an enraged Maka that she will never hand over Crona, whose memory of being in the DWMA is erased.

From there, Medusa begins to improve Crona's ability by clearing the Black Clown that would be compatible with Ragnarok and testing the child's new powers on Black Star yet is overpowered due to the youth causing Crona to remember Maka. When Justin Law appears with one of Asura's Clowns, Medusa has Mizune and Eruka retrieve Crona who is more confused than before. Given a new mission to kill off all Death Scythes, with his Black Blood evolved into Madness Blood, Crona takes the souls of Moscow's resident Death Scythe and Meister. Once home, Crona's confusion worsens when Medusa acts out of character and treat her child with love and affection. This, combined with both regained memories the realization that the child will never be stable, causes Crona to go insane as the child disembodies Medusa in blend of rage and confusion. It was only before dealing the deathblow that Crona learns that Medusa staged this event so the child can kill her and reach the potential that she envisioned.

Going into hiding at Santa Maria Novella Basilica, Crona is found by Maka who attempts to convince her friend to come back with her. However, Crona reveals to have killed Medusa and to no intention of returning out fearing of killing every other. After evading Black Star, Crona arrives to the moon and succeeds in assimilating Asura with the intention to fulfill the destiny Medusa prepare the child for: Destroying the world with madness.

However, while everyone else was teleported out of harm's way, only Maka, Black Star and Spirit on the moon. Despite calming to be beyond redemption, Maka vows to get the Crona she knows back as she and Black engage the Kishin who eventually uses the Rose Thorn Storm attack to negate the Meister's Soul Resonance before taking and Tsubaki to have a higher advantage. However, when Spirit joins Maka, the Rose Thorn Storm is unable to affect them due to their familiar ties. Being told that causes Crona to suffer a mental breakdown which enables Asura to make his presence within the child known. From there, Asura absorbs Crona from the inside with the child now within the Kishin's body. Within a sea inside Asura's body, though his/her presence is faint, Crona thinks on every past action and believes that the only thing left now is to die though one part of the child wishes to see Maka one final time. Crona ends up seeing that wish when Maka appears alongside Soul due in the girl's faith in him/her. Though Maka attempts to take the child with her, happy to see her yet believing that he/she committed too many actions to be forgiven, Crona instead asks for the Book of Eibon that Maka brought with her. After revealing the intent to use Brew to seal both Asura and the Mad Blood, not caring for what will become of him/her, Crona tells Maka that she needs to make Asura bleed from the outside. Once Maka succeeds at her end, Crona activates Brew to power up the Mad Blood to its full potential to consume the entire moon in a dome of Mad Blood.


Crona' story is the same up until episode #36 (Release, Seven People's Resonance Chain! Concert of Creation and Destruction?) after carrying out Medusa's orders to drive Professor Franken Stein insane, Crona (instead of returning to Medusa and start to become another Kishin) runs away from DWMA out of guilt for his/her actions. Soon Maka and Soul set out to locate Crona, whom they find hiding in a pit in the desert. Crona tries to tell them to leave him/her alone because of all the evil he/she has caused (epically with making Professor Stein insane) and about how confused he was about Marie's kindness towards him/her. Maka tells Crona to stop and enters the pit to punch Crona (Soul even tries to stop her from doing so), but instead of punching Crona, she tells him/her to stop saying negative things about him/herself and that he/she will not betray them again. This causes Crona to cry as Maka gives him/her a big hug. With Maka's comforting words and her support, Crona then returns back to Shibusen, where Crona is apprehended for his/her actions as a spy working for Medusa against the DWMA, despite Maka's protests.

As punishment for his/her crimes against the DWMA, Crona is expelled and imprisoned in the dungeon. However following the release of Medusa, Lord Death allows Crona to go with Marie to Medusa's base to retrieve Stein and finally defeat Medusa. When the two reach Medusa's lair, a battle is quickly started. As Medusa and Crona fight, the witch sends soul waves into Crona, disconnecting the link between Crona and Ragnarok (Soul Eater) which renders Crona's black blood useless until the soul waves wear off. Right before Medusa deals a final blow to her child; Maka comes and blocks the Vector Blade from slicing him/her. With Maka now in the fight, the three continue to try to defeat Medusa and Stein. However, Stein appears to be too strong, and easily blocks off all attacks. As Crona and the others rest, Medusa tries to use a Vector Arrow to kill Maka. Crona jumps in the way and takes the blow instead at the last second, getting gravely injured. Ragnarok appears to be dying as well from loss of blood. Maka begins to cry as she watches Crona slowly dying in front of her, but Crona tells her not to cry because he/she is final happy for the first time in his/her life. Soon after saying that, Crona dies.

Maka, horrified over the death of Crona, becomes berserk with rage and almost loses herself to madness like she did the night the Kishin was revived. However, Marie calms both Maka and Stein; she then saves Stein from madness using the Wavelength of Redemption. With Stein acting as Marie's meister, a Chain Resonance between the remaining parties occurs; before this occurs Stein informs Maka that he feels Crona's soul still in Medusa's layer and he can still save Crona. While Stein distracts and leads Medusa, Maka unleashes her anti-demon wavelength's Majin Hunt, cutting off Medusa's soul from Rachael's body and slicing the soul in half, finally finishing off the witch for good.

After Stein reassures Maka that he will save Crona, she races off with Soul to go join the battle against the Kishin back at the Baba Yaba Castle. Crona turns out to be fine and sleeping soundly, but is out of the present battles against the Kishin until further notice. In the final battle between Maka and Asura, Crona (who is awake and wearing Professor Stein's coat) tells everyone that Maka's true strength comes from her heart and not a technique. That power that Crona talks about is bravery, which she uses to defeat Asura. Over the end credits Crona is shown to be living with Soul, Maka and Blair, fully recovered (Ragnarok is also fully recovered) and allowed back as a student at DWMA, and shown again playing basketball with them.



  • Crona's Black Blood ability parallels the abilities of the Deadmen from Deadman Wonderland, primarily Shiro in terms of her state of mind, sociopathic persona, and level of power.
