Hien Hōsen: Mode One: In Deep Crimson, Ikaruga takes hold of Hien and slashes the air in two, large swings. She then turns her back and proceeds to sheath her sword, leaving behind afterimages of the areas of which she struck. The damage from the sword's strikes soon take effect. Though not very damaging, the aftermath will fling enemies away from the general area.
Oukaensen: The move retains most of its uniform action from its previous version. Only now the Phoenix travels at a set trajectory and carries its targets up into the air, exploding shorty after. This causes far more damage to enemies that are ensnared by its grasp and there is a lesser chance of any escape.
Phoenix Kick: While in the air, Ikaruga places her sword's hilt in between her feet and slides downward to attack her enemies as she descends.
Ōka Ryōdan: Ikaruga unsheathes Hien and places both hands on its handle. From there, the sword is immersed in a fiery blue aura as it extends and elongates in size. She then takes the sword and strikes down one time, creating a long beam that splits through the middle and travels outward towards the enemies.
Hien Hōsen: Mode Air: While in the air, Ikaruga performs a quick strike, that surges and traps opponents.
Zekka Hōōsen: Ikaruga calls upon her guardian, a large phoenix made of blue fire, whom which flies up, makes a nosedive, and is absorbed into Hien. The sword is then immersed in a blue aura as she then slashes rapidly at her enemies with it. To finish, Ikaruga slashes one last time with her sword before sheathing it back as the enemy falls. The direction and angle of this move, though stationary, can be changed as the move progresses.
Shinobi Transformation: A physical technique that uses the Atrribute of Yang, in where the fundamental essence of the shinobi is used as a battle tool by releasing the body's internal spiritual energy in all six chakras simultaneously.
Frantic Mode: A technique that uses the Attribute of Yin, performed by stripping off one's clothing, resulting in a considerable enhancement in speed and attack power by absorbing blood spilled within the shinobi barrier. However, it is a double-edged sword, as it also incurs a significant penalty to defense.
