Gordius Wheel: Wheel of Heaven's Authority (神威の車輪) is a large antique war chariot with two prows that is led by two divine bulls. Its dimensions are greater than that of an average truck and it has two large, curved sickles on its sides used to demolish surrounding obstacles and hurl the debris at enemies.

Rather than touching the ground, the bulls and the chariot travel atop lightning strikes, manifestations of thunder spirits, allowing it to also move through the air by traveling on the lightning. They create thunderous sounds and webs of lightning with each "stomp" as they travel, and each lightning strike generating a voltage akin to natural lightning. The bulls, which Angra Mainyu dubs the "Children of Raiden", were historically an offering to Zeus from the king Gordius, but the hero Alexander claimed them by cutting the reigns with his sword. The chariot is summoned by Angra Mainyu via Kshathra Vairya.

The true ability is the actual trampling attack used by the chariot, Via Expugnatio: Distant Trampling Domination (遥かなる蹂躙制覇). The damage is decided by two factors, damage from the eight strikes from the hooves of the bulls and the damage from being struck by the wheels of the chariot, with both physical damage and the effects of the lightning strikes taking effect with each attack roll. If the target is not strong enough and fails a strength check, additional damage will also be dealt. The basic attack is enough to easily cripple a heavily-armored target, and the power rises even more significantly after Angra Mainyu calls out its true name. The bulls' charge is capable of reaching over four hundred kilometers per hour, not slowing at all while the scythes easily cut through trees and still only slightly losing acceleration while tearing large chunks of concrete and asphalt. It can easily turn the entire village of Konohagakure into scorched earth if Angra Mainyu was allowed to go on a rampage with it for less than an hour, unobstructed.
