Generally, when the Symphogear is removed by the user, the energy levels will return to normal and it will reconfigure into its pendant form. However…
At the time of the concert tragedy, fragments of the gear were embedded into the area near Hibiki’s heart. They remained there and eventually ended up fusing with her body.
Furthermore, ever since Hibiki became a Symphogear user, whenever she activated the system itself the fusion would spread even further in a manner much like cancer cells, slowly altering her body.This granted her superhuman regenerative abilities and even the ability to touch Noise with her bare hands without any consequences, along with explosive power that continually grew stronger every time she transformed.The fusion also had the side effect of causing Hibiki to frequently enter a berserker rage in which her entire body turned black, her mouth gained fangs and her eyes turned red.
Eventually the broken Gungnir's explosive power grew too great, causing Hibiki's body to become intensely overheated, and not long after this malformed spears began to burst from her body. Shortly before this stage could kill her Gungnir was destroyed by the light of the Shen Shou Jing, purging all traces of it from Hibiki's body but leaving her with a strong synchronization with other copies of the relic. She later acquired Maria's undamaged Gungnir to replace it, which she uses in the normal manner.
Kanade is the first Gungnir user. Because of her low natural compatibility with Gungnir, she's reliant on LiNKER to utilize it, having had to overdose on LiNKER to first establish the connection but then able to maintain it with more controlled dosages. This results in her having much greater raw power than Tsubasa due to Gungnir's superior power, but saddling her with a time limit before her synchronization drops. Kanade's reliance on the then-unrefined LiNKER would eventually have killed her from the strain on her body, but she died much sooner after needing to use her Superb Song, which with her failing compatibility was enough to kill her. Fragments of her Gungnir from this incident wound up buried in Hibiki's chest.
Her Armed Gear is a long red and white spear with a yellow blade, which is actually two blades arranged in a cross shape. It can be utilized as a sword due to its shape, but serves primarily as a lance or spear.
The earthly secret shield of Gungnir's wish

Hibiki doesn't hold an Armed Gear, both due to possessing only a fragment of Gungnir and due to her wish to bring people together. Instead the energy meant for use in an Armed Gear directly alters her fists and feet, allowing her to remain empty-handed. This eventually proves to be a benefit rather than a hindrance, as her strong will to avoid fighting and connect with other people allows her to join hands with others since she has no weapon to hold in her hands. After gaining Maria's Gungnir, Hibiki became able to utilize Gungnir's normal Armed Gear, but prefers instead to form it over one arm for use as an oversized war gauntlet.

Black Gungnir (黒いガングニール Kuroi Gangunīru?) is the Symphogear that clads Maria Cadenzavna Eve. As its wave length was observed in Season 2, Episode 2, it appears to be a real Gungnir with its Armed Gear. Maria's Gungnir is similar to Kanade's but has a mantle and is dark blue instead of white. She is also a LiNKER user like Kanade.
Black Gungnir is considered to be a relic from "Dark Symphogear" category.It was created,at the same time as white Gungnir-from a piece of the original spear.
The term "black" was put in the front of "Gungnir",to distinguish from the another Gungnir.
Her Armed Gear is very similar to Kanade's, but slightly different in shape and color palette. This Gungnir was later used by Hibiki to replace her original Gungnir.

- Gungnir comes from the Norse Legend, Gungnir being the spear of the god Odin.
- Maria and Kanade's activation song sound alike.
