Weaknesses: Hakumen is currently only able to use 20% of his power. He can be stubborn, prideful, and doesn't work well with others except under extraordinary circumstances. His Time Killer technique requires a considerable time to charge and drains a significant chunk of his energy upon use.
- Drive: God Slash: Hakumen is capable of blocking, then instantly countering attacks intercepted. Doing so instantly earns him one magatama (max. 8), which can be used to perform special moves in place of Astral Heat.
- Overdrive: Demon God: Temporarily provides an increase to both his attack power and toughness and additionally increases the rate at which he naturally generates magatama with his attacks and blocks. The lower Hakumen's remaining health upon activation, the longer it lasts.
- Earthbind: A passive ability of Hakumen's. Whenever his sword, the Okami, comes into contact with a projectile, it instantly nullifies and destroys it, creating a temporary black hole-like void of vacuum energy that inflicts damage to those who come into contact with it equal to the nullified projectile's damage. Additionally, further projectiles that touch the Earthbind are nullified.
- Crimson Lotus: Lunges forward and smashes the opponent with the hilt of his sword. Can lead into or out of combos, and potentially wallbounce in some instances. Costs 1 magatama.
- Demonic Leg: Dashes forward while briefly acquiring invincibility. Costs 1 magatama. Can be canceled into Hades, a powerful uppercut that launches the opponent, for 1 additional magatama.
- Lotus: A low sweeping kick followed by a direct thrust kick, both imbued with a black ink-like energy. Costs 2 magatama.
- Firefly: Performs a swift upwards kick infused with a black ink-like energy, immediately halting all momentum and gaining brief invulnerability. Semi-unblockable. Costs 2 magatama.
- Rending Steel: An extremely powerful overhead blow, followed by a arcing side slash. Costs 3 magatama.
- Camellia: An extremely powerful spinning aerial slash that drives opponents into the earth. A good combo finsher. Costs 3 magatama.
- Agito: Swipes directly downwards with his claw from the air, causing a translucent wave of black energy to trace his swing. Costs 1 magatama.
- Distortion Drive: Empty Sky Form: Summer's Advance: Charges his sword, then swings, resulting in a massive light energy wave flying from it and plowing through everything it encounters. Costs 4 magatama.
- Distortion Drive: Empty Sky Form: Winter's Riposte: Readies a block: if successful, Hakumen counters with a double handed battoujutsu attack, delivering massive damage in one stroke. Costs 4 magatama.
- Distortion Drive: Empty Sky Form Forbidden Art: Dream State: After tapping further into his reserve of power, Hakumen begins rapidly draining his magatama. However, while this is active, Hakumen may use all special moves that require magatama infinitely with no repercussions, including his other Distortion Drives. Costs all 8 magatama.
- Astral Heat: Empty Sky Form Forbidden Art: Perish Evil: Readies a block: if successful, Hakumen becomes an ink-like silhouette and delivers a single, powerful slash with the Okami. Several more invisible slashes accompany the first, each striking the opponent one after the other as the screen is painted with more and more brush strokes until Hakumen finally sheathes the Okami, slaying the opponent. Costs all 8 magatama.
- Empty Sky Form: Time Killer: Hakumen's trump card. Hakumen focuses his energy, then delivers a single blow: should it land, all of the time that the victim possesses, has possessed, or ever will possess, in this timeline and in all others, is immediately destroyed, effectively deleting a being from reality entirely.
