- Dojima no Ryu: Also known as the Dragon of Dojima. This style is the refined version of Kiryu's original moveset that has been used throughout the whole Yakuza series. It is similar to Majima's Shimano no Kyoken (Mad Dog of Shimano) style. Amon copied this style of Kazuma's after gathering data from him using a VR fighting machine, allowing him to utilize all of Kazuma's attacks and moves such as the Tiger Drop, Komaki Parry, and so on.
- Mad Dog: AKA "The Mad Dog of Shimano". It is the signature fighting style associated with Majima throughout his appearances in all of the Yakuza series. Like Majima, Jo Amon can go into a state where he runs extremely fast, making his moves unpredictable and hard to keep up with (his version allows him to run even faster, being able to outpace Kazuma in one of their fights).
