Maguilty Sense (マギルティ＝センス Magiruti Sensu ) is a Caster-Type Lost Magic utilized by Meredy . While one of its uses involves creating weaponry capable of targetting the enemy's sense of pain to the point of nullyfing defense mechanisms such as Juvia 's Water Body , Maguilty Sense's primary purpose is linking the senses of two targets so that they share pain and, in extreme cases, death as well.
