Weaknesses: None notable
- Sacred Sword Excalibur (聖剣エクスカリバー, Seiken Ekusukaribā): In the anime, it was said that in mythical times, Athena granted the legendary sword Excalibur only to a Saint who proved his undying loyalty towards the goddess. This technique is a very sharp blast, composed of extreme cosmo concentration released by his arms and legs movements. Since it is quickly released, it can be used multiple times. Excalibur has also shown to negate regeneration, as Shiryu was able to use it to stop the regeneration of the Dragon Faceless in Episode G Assassin.
- Double Excalibur (ダブルエクスカリバー, Daburu Ekusukaribā): This technique was only used in Saint Seiya Episode G. It consists in the use of the Excalibur with his left arm in addition to the right arm, simulating a two-swords fighting style.
- Jumping Stone (ジャンピングストーン, Janpingu Sutōn): When Shura is thrown by the impact of some attack, he grabs his enemy with his legs and flips both of them, so he will be released of the attack and the enemy will be thrown by his own attack.
- Eclipse Calibur: This technique is used in Episode G Assassin. Promptly after his soul fell into the Underworld, his master (Capricorn Izo) helps to recreate his sword by absorbing the power of the Underworld to create a Divine Sword. Shura is able to use this technique to cut apart phemomena of a non-physical nature, such as when he cut apart Trivikramasena's non-corporeal astral armor.
