Depiction of esper abilities clashing, circumstances which can supposedly create Shadow Metal

According to Saten Ruiko, rumor has it that when hundreds of esper abilities clash (like during the Daihaseisai), a metal is created which doesn't naturally exist.[1]

ChronologyEdit

Daihasei Festival ArcEdit

Main article: Daihasei Festival Arc (Railgun)

During the Daihaseisai, Saten Ruiko, having learnt about the rumor concerning Shadow Metal, tried to investigate it, getting into trouble in the process.[1][2] At that time, the rumor was described as having developed from the increased security to prevent people from stealing DNA maps during the games, apparently baseless.[2]

However, during the Level 6 Shift attempt on Misaka Mikoto and the efforts of Kamijou Touma and Sogiita Gunha to save her, a metallic substance was formed from the clash between Mikoto and Gunha's powers when he made a path for Touma to get to Mikoto. After the experiment was stopped, they all take notice of the area now being completely covered with a strange metal coating.[3]
