|Manga Debut:||Episode 272
Kundalini is a powerful astral serpents with control over the element of water. Its powers are so great that Schierke said it could be seen as a god by polytheistic cultures. Kundalini was once harnessed by Daiba with the saying "Kuh Ohm Amiriti, Um Patta, Kundalini".
The Kundalini appears to be a monstrous serpent made of water, hundreds of feet in length and between fifteen and twenty in width, and lacking facial features except for two brightly glowing eyes. However, this is merely its proxy body. The true form of the beast is a sea snake of average size, small enough to coil around a man's body. This smaller snake also serves as its weak point.
The Kundalini is described by Schierke as similar in nature to the kelpie, but on a much larger scale. Its power over water was immense. It could create towering water spouts to wash away its enemies, a power that its master, Daiba, utilized before summoning the creature itself.
It also has the ability to pressurize water to a very fine point, allowing it refine the water to create blasts which Daiba described as being able to cut diamond. However, this assumes that no other force interferes with the pressurization. Schierke was able to block the water's cutting effect by calling on a spirit of fire, which surrounded her and Guts like a shield.
Where these abilities fail, the Kundalini is not averse to using its body to thrash and slam into its opponents.
The Kundalini was summoned by Daiba at Vritannis's harbor to destroy Guts and his companions after the latter proved to be able to combat his abilities with the Berserker Armor and his own prowess. A battle ensued, during which much property was destroyed and the small band's lives were threatened several times. It was eventually slain through the combined efforts of Schierke, Serpico, and Guts.
The destruction of this beast enraged Ganishka into appearing in his apostle form, where even more chaos followed.
- The word "Kundalini" is from Hindu philosophy. It is a yogic term used to describe the power attained by mastering sexual desires. It is depicted as a serpent coiled around a lingam. The term is used in English to usually depict serpentine features. A snake is shown to exist within the giant serpent's head and seemed to be controlling the water.
