The Spirit Reaver was a temporary enhancement for the Wraith Blade associated with elemental Spirit. It was intended to be discovered by Raziel, but the Reaver enhancement were ultimately cut due to time constraints along with the companion Spirit Glyph.
The blade would have been a temporary enhancement, though when lost it could be re-imbued from enemies Souls. The blade was intended to be have several special abilities; "destroying" enemies in a single strike or Force bolt.
- Unlike other cut enhancements, the Spirit Reaver is not present in any form in the retail version of Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver and it is not listed under the debug menu.
- A similarly named Spirit Reaver was planned to appear in Soul Reaver 2 but was ultimately cut; with the enhancement becoming an all powerful final blade (more like the concepts of the Ariel Reaver and Amplified Reaver enhancements). With the Spirit Reaver removed from Soul Reaver 2, it would be left to Legacy of Kain: Defiance to debut a more permanent Spirit Reaver enhancement and its special abilities.[Defiance/12][Defiance]
