Elfen Lied is a manga series by Lynn Okamoto, published from 2002 to 2005. It also has an anime adaptation.

It revolves around the interactions between human beings and the Diclonii, a mutant species similar to humans in build but distinguishable by two horns on their heads and "vectors", transparent telekinetically controlled arms that have the power to manipulate and cut objects within their reach. The series is centered on the teenage Diclonius girl "Lucy" who was rejected by human beings and wants revenge.

The series involves themes like social alienation, identity and the value of humanity. It is also known to include graphical violence and profanity, and is sometimes criticized as being "overly blatant".
