Weaknesses: Thunder (Cross) Split Attack leaves his guard open. Is too reliant of the attack.
- Hamon/Ripple/Sendo: Hamon/the Ripple/Sendo is a form of energy that relies on breathing techniques to replicate the power of the Sun. It can be used to enhance physical attributes, heal wounds, and acts as both an offensive and defensive tool. Due to it's solar connection, it has an advantage over creatures weak to sunlight.
- Thunder Split Attack: Dire jumps at his opponent, does a split with his legs that follows their arms, and quickly chops their neck. It is fast, but leaves Dire open for a counterattack.
- Thunder Cross Split Attack: An advanced version of the Thunder Split Attack that covers its original weakness by making his hands form a cross. It's considered a perfect attack and is believed to be unbeatable... until Dire's encounter with Dio.
