Konoe Mercury, I hereby appoint you as the Ten Sage, he who possesses great wisdom… You are now called as “Nine”.
— I humbly accept it.
— Now, from this very moment, a new wisdom has joined the Ten Sages. According to the sacred order, that intelligence will last for eons.

―Konoe Ayatsuki Mercury’s canonization
The Canonization Ceremony (列聖式 Ressei Shiki) is a ceremony used to appoint people to the highest position in the Magic Association, the Ten Sages. Those chosen receive a large, purple, triangular hat as proof of their position. Since only the best magicians can become Sages, this ceremony is extremely rare to happen.

The ceremony is held in the most sacred place to the Magic Association, the sanctuary (聖堂 seidō) located at the heart of the Magic City Ishana, which only the Sages can enter, and those who will join them soon. The applicant is to be on their knees, and to be hanging their head as if saying a prayer, while the current Ten Sages encompasses them. After a brief rite of incantation is said between the applicant and the Ten Sage who is reciting said incantation, the applicant is awarded their title and their hat as proof as their membership as one of the Sages. After the final rite is said, the remaining Ten Sages are to repeatedly chant the line.

Such ceremony took place in BlazBlue: Phase Shift 1, when Konoe Ayatsuki Mercury was appointed as Nine.

The ceremony often takes place in the morning and is announced via a distinct ringing from the sanctuary bells.
