|~ Yorimitsu using her Noble Phantasm|
Ox-King Storm Call - The Inescapable Net of Heaven (ごおうしょうらい・てんもうかいかい: 牛王招雷・天網恢々, Goō Shōrai - Tenmōkaikai): is the Noble Phantasm of Minamoto no Yorimitsu. She temporarily summons the divine messenger of the Ox-Head King (牛頭天王, Gozu Tenno), the source of her oni blood, which takes the form of four duplicates of Raikou herself, each wielding one of the weapons utilized by her subordinates, the Four Heavenly Kings (四天王, Shitennō). She and her duplicates then wipe out the enemy forces with a sweeping display of each weapon's power before Raikou razes the enemy camp with a thunderbolt channeled through her favored sword, Doujigiri Yasutsuna.
- Mad Enhancement: raises basic parameters in exchange of hindering mental capacities. In some cases, also seals away Personal Skills. She does not lose her reason and remains as her original intellectual self. However, she manifest a fanatic maternal love, to the point she monopolize the one who she feel motherly love for, losing sights of all social morals and eliminating anything for him/her. She's mentally ill, but other and neither herself can perceive how much broken she is. She is impossible to persuade to make her correct her ways.
- Riding: the Class Skill of Rider and Saber, is the ability to ride mounts. Rider-class Servants will typically possess a high rank, and A-rank can allow for Phantasmal Beasts and Divine Beasts to be mounted. It is said that dragon type mounts are an exception, requiring a different ability other than Riding.
- Magic Resistance: grants protection against magical effects. Differently from the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether. Due to Yorimitsu D Rank, she can cancel "Single-Action" spells that only require a single line of chanting. However, it will fail against any spell that is more complex or powerful.
- Divinity: A skill that reflects the amount of divine blood a person has. At high levels one is treated as a mixed race of a Divine Spirit, and the level declines when the Heroic Spirit's own rank as aMonster, Demonic Beast raises. It can also decrease due one's dislike for the gods. It also has an effect which reduces special defensive values called "purge defense" in proportion to the Divinity's Rank.
- Eternal Arms Mastership: A skill that prevents degradation of fighting skills when under the effect of mental hindrance. Thanks to her A-Rank in this skill, Raikou is able to fully utilize all of her legendary martial techniques despite the oppressive effects of her Mad Enhancement, fighting with the grace and skill of any of the Knight classes despite her insanity.
- Mana Burst (Lightning): Raikou is able imbue her attacks with the power of lightning by surging mana into them, greatly increasing her attack power, range, speed, and durability.
- Mystery Killer: Raikou was known as the greatest "Mystery Killer" of her era, slaying countless monsters, demons, apparitions, and laying waste to the bastions of the supernatural in the name of defending Kyoto. As a result, she gains bonuses to her parameters when facing those who utilize magical techniques or wield magical equipment as well as those associated with legendary heroes or the divine.
