The witch of oblivion, with a vengeful nature. A witch who is said to have originally been a magical girl who came from the end of the galaxy. She has shown herself now in order to forget about all the magical girls from this universe.

History

Madoka Magica Portable

Itzli makes her debut in Madoka Magica Portable. She is the final boss of the Oblivious barrier on floor 50. She doesn't have her own familiars and uses the shadow magical girls of Walpurgisnacht. Her barrier is a grassy landscape just like Quitterie's but has the addition of film reels and a deep hole that she emerges from.

SLOT Puella Magi Madoka Magica 2

Itzli makes a reappearance in SLOT Puella Magi Madoka Magica 2 as a boss Homura can fight. In this game, Itzli's labyrinth looks like a movie theatre yet the area where she is battled is the same as its appearance in Portable. The heads of magical girls such as Mami can be seen in the seats when Homura walks through but they never move and Homura never interacts with them. Instead of using Walpurgisnacht's familiars, in this game she uses Adelbert, Gotz, Sebastian and Mathieu. She even summons Charlotte in her second form to take a hit for her. Homura can either kill Itzli with a strong attack or the other magical girls will arrive to help finish Itzli off.

Observations

  • Because of the Witch's information, it is suspected that Itzli was a magical girl from another planet, an alien magical girl
  • Itzli means "obsidian" in the Aztec language.
  • In Aztec mythology, Itzli (or Itztli) was a god of stone, particularly in the shape of a sacrificial knife. He served Tezcatlipoca as the god of the Second Hour of the Night. He is associated with Chalchiuhtlicue and Tlazolteotl. Itzli was therefore the god of (human) sacrifice and stone knives.
    • Obsidian was a valuable material prior to the use of iron, like flint, it could be fractured to produce sharp blades or arrowheads. Like all glass and some other types of naturally occurring rocks, obsidian breaks with a characteristic conchoidal fracture. It was also polished to create early mirrors such as the ones used in Aztec shamanic rituals
  • Her use of other witch's familiars, reels of characters' memories within her barrier, her desire to forget all magical girls, and her identity as the witch of Oblivion ("the fact or condition of not remembering or not being remembered") may indicate that Itzli, and even her magical girl form, possesses memory-related powers
  • In SLOT Puella Magi Madoka Magica 2 it is stated that Itzli's magical power is different to any other witch and no one has ever found her before
    • The fact her power is different links into the idea of her being an alien magical girl/witch
    • Kyubey states no magical girl from earth is able to find her - hence why she hasn't been found yet - so is curious why Homura has found her now
      • Kyubey also seems to be aware of Itzli before they see her
  • In SLOT 2 Kyubey says that Itzli is able to observe people through all the clovers in the world (which explains the clovers in her design and witch kiss)
  • In SLOT 2 Itzli can summon many familiars of other witches and even summons Charlotte herself. This could mean that Itzli can summon any other witch or familiar she pleases

Trivia

  • In Madoka Magica Portable, Itzli uses shadow magical girls as familiars, identical to those used by Walpurgisnacht
  • Upon her death, she launches into the sky like a rocket and explodes
