Due to the events of [[Issue 21: The Shaab Stone|the last issue]], all magic in [[Magix]] has been nullified for the past week according to [[Bloom]]. She continues to explain their current situation to her diary, talking about how [[Belizarius]] plans to use the Shaab Stone to force [[Griffin]] and [[Minor Cloud Tower Witches|the witches of Cloud Tower]] to use their magic to increase his trading network and, ever since Belizarius got his hands on the Shaab Stone, everyone has been at a loss on what to do. Also, since their retrieval mission failed, all blame has been directed at [[Helia]] since he was appointed commander, despite it all actually being the fault of [[Riven]] acting rash.

In fact, at [[Red Fountain]], Riven still does not feel any remorse for what happened and even instigates a fight with [[Timmy]] by claiming that they would have the Stone in their possession had Timmy not acted like a coward. Luckily, [[Sky]] and [[Brandon]] stop Timmy from letting his rage get the better of him and they decide to spend the rest of the day at the [[White Horse]] to blow off some steam.
Later that day, Griffin tries conjuring something up with her magic but it ends up dissolving again thanks to the presence of the Shaab Stone in Magix. The three headmasters begin to panic over Belizarius' actions as, without magic, Magix is practically open for any sort of attack from other realms. [[Saladin]] believes that Belizarius is aware of this as this would give Griffin more of a reason to eventually cave in and accept his deal, however, he reminds his colleagues to stay strong as they ''will'' steal the Shaab Stone back and destroy it so that something like this does not happen again.

Meanwhile, at the TradeMagix Company building located at the outskirts of Magix City, Belizarius marvels at the Shaab Stone's glow as he boasts over how he now has influence over everyone thanks to the Stone. [[Servidio]], on the other hand, fears that their actions may cause the [[Fortress of Light|Fortress of Light Council]] to get directly involved. Belizarius does not fear a possible intervention at the hands of the Fortress of Light Council because he believes that no one will be capable of defying him so long as he has the Shaab Stone. To make sure that things stay this way, Belizarius and Servidio lock the Shaab Stone in a large red safe and Belizarius laughs triumphantly as he declares that he can have his men deal with whoever dares to take the Stone from him.
At long last, the weekend rolls around and [[Winx Club|the Winx]] and [[Specialist|Specialists]] head for the White Horse to hang out. Unfortunately, Helia's stigma follows them as [[Witch|a witch]] begins talking to her friends over how Helia is "the man who let them rob the Shaab Stone." She then goes on to explain that Griffin is losing her mind over their current situation, and this ultimately leads to [[Horg]], the boyfriend of the witch's friend, to instigate a fight with Helia. The two get into a fight and Helia easily defeats Horg but trashes the café in the process. This causes the police to arrive and apprehend Helia, who tells them that he was the one who started the fight. Helia's arrest ultimately drives Saladin into having him expelled, which later leads Helia into working for Belizarius himself!

Shaab Stone p44
The Shaab Stone is a mysterious and magical stone that appears exclusively within the Winx Club Comic Series. It makes its debut in the issue of the same name and acts as a major item during the Shaab Stone arc of the comics.


Shaab Stone Origins

The origins of the Shaab Stone.

Long ago, a mysterious meteorite fell on Magix and landed in the center of what is now known as the Enclosed Territory. The impact of the meteorite's crash was so great that it disintegrated and its dusty remains were scattered across the Enclosed Territory, resulting in the area's ability to cancel out all magic. The dust and fragments left behind by the destroyed meteorite became known as the Shaab Stone collectively.

No one knows why the Shaab Stone can cancel out magic specifically but many antagonists throughout the run of the comics smuggle pieces of it to use as either a precaution or an integral part of their sinister plans.


The Shaab Stone is a large magenta-colored slab of rock. It takes the form of pebbles, powder, and even a pendant in its later appearances, all while retaining its magenta hue.


The Shaab Stone is first mentioned by Lothar when reporting in to Belizarius. Wanting to find a way to blackmail Headmistress Griffin into working for him, Belizarius sent out his men to look for a way to make that possible. Lothar managed to uncover the mystery of the Enclosed Territory, a mountainous area near Magix where magic mysteriously does not work. According to his findings, the reason for this is because of the fabled Shaab Stone: a stone with the ability to cancel out all magic. Knowing this, Belizarius has Lothar and his men travel to the Enclosed Territory to retrieve the Shaab Stone and his men prepare their ships and supplies for their latest job. Little do any of them know is that Helia has been listening in on their plan and once he has all the information he needs, Helia returns to Red Fountain to inform Codatorta and the three headmasters.

Crater Scan

Converting the map of the Territory from 2D to 3D to see the crater better.

In response, Saladin has them all assembly various groups of fairies, witches and Specialists to monitor Belizarius' men and retrieve the Stone if it exists. Since Helia was the one who collected all the information they know now, Codatorta has him appointed as commander for his group.

By morning, the Winx meet up with the Specialists to join them on their search for the Shaab Stone, however, once they enter the Enclosed Territory, the group faces a few issues in their search. They then decide to search for the crater left behind by the meteorite all those years ago as it would not have completely disappeared given how large it is supposed to be. After getting a better look at the Territory's map (courtesy of Bloom), the group manages to find the crater, only to be met with the sight of another shuttle flying by.

Lothar and the Stone!

Lothar got the stone!

Realizing that it is one of Belizarius' shuttles, Helia has Timmy land the shuttle somewhere out of their field of vision to spy on them. Taking out their binoculars to spy on them, the boys find that they have set up an entire base camp at the center of the crater and, to make things even worse, they have just got their hands on the Shaab Stone! Upon learning this, everyone begins to panic now that the legend of the Shaab Stone turned out to be true, and Riven begins lashing out, insisting that they should ambush Belizarius' men while they are busy celebrating. However, Helia has everyone retreat for now to simply monitor them as they wait for backup since Belizarius' men are professionals.

By nightfall, the group exacts Helia's plan to monitor Belizarius' men as they await backup, however, Riven has been skulking around, looking for an opening. He pulls Timmy into his hiding spot as two of the soldiers lugging the Stone and talking about the pay they will get from Belizarius once they turn over the stone. Wanting to snatch the Stone while they have the chance, Riven goes against Helia's orders and charges at the men, forcing Timmy to run after him for cover. The two manage to knock out the men and steal the Shaab Stone from them, but they are quickly apprehended by Lothar and two other soldiers who overheard sounds of a scuffle.

When backup finally arrives, Lothar forces them to let him and his men leave by using Riven and Timmy as hostages. Codatorta tries to negotiate with them but Lothar refuses and threatens to kill Riven and Timmy if they do not let them leave peacefully. With no other option, everyone is forced to let Lothar and his men escape with the Shaab Stone, ensuring that Belizarius gets it for the safety of their friends.

The next day, Riven and Timmy are released on the outskirts of Magix unharmed as Lothar promised, while Helia must now explain to his grandfather of what happened. Sky tries to get Helia to tell Saladin the truth, that all this was Riven's fault, but Helia believes that it would not do any good and leaves to face his grandfather's wrath.

At Alfea, the Winx lament over how magic no long works in all of Magix, while Belizarius revels in his success with the Shaab Stone on a display on his desk.


  • The Shaab Stone is the most recurring item within the comics, as it is used or at least mentioned in some way in five separate issues and across three different seasons. Morgana's Necklace is the only other comic-exclusive object that shares this and it comes in second; only being mentioned and used in four issues only contained within the events of most Season 4 comics.
