Abstract

Spell is a tradition that exists and develops orally in the form of an oral tradition. One type of spell that is developing is the superiority spell. This study uses a Qualitative Research Method that starts with an idea, collects information theoretically, designs a research plan, identifies data, analyzes data, and reports findings. Based on the findings, it is known that most of the pattern consists of content and closing. Meaning is seen based on the presence or absence of "taste value" in a word or sentence. After analyzing the 10 mantras of superiority, it turns out that there are words whose true meaning is not known or are called connotative meanings. In the function element by using the function of fetimism, it can be seen that in the superiority spell it functions to gain superiority over the opponent, in other words, namely safety for the spellcaster.
