Notable Attack/Techniques:

Tremendous Strength: Hinted as one of the elites among the Yato race, Kamui is one of the strongest Yato in existence. Naturally, Kamui inherited his father's blood yielding strength able to confidently fight Hosen, The King of Yato. His physical strength is so impressive that he can literally chop up his opponents. He can easily penetrate his opponent's body with his arm and land a finishing blow. He managed to destroy a space ship with ONE kick.

Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Instead of relying on brute force alone, Kamui is shown to be acrobatic in his movements and skillful in his attacks. 

Kamui is one of the strongest Yato alive and also one of the strongest characters in the show. Despite taking more apparent damage from Hosen than the damage he did in return, it is strongly implied that Kamui's confidence to fight and even injure the King of the Night shows his great strength and ability to fight. One of Kamui's attacks alone is absolutely lethal. His incredible physical skills makes it extremely hard to dodge or to block his attacks, while with his strength and speed, he can easily dodge and block even extremely powerful attacks.

Tremendous Endurance: Kamui was able to withstand damage from Housen, who was one of the strongest characters introduced in Gintama. Although he took several hits, Kamui was at great health after fighting Housen. Even anesthetic drugs are barely effective against him. When Kamui was injected with a drug  strong enough to even knock out an elephant during his fight with Takasugi, he was still able to fight and kill about 20 soldiers before the drug finally knocked him out.

Healing: Like any yato, he has amazing healing abilities.

Note: Kamui is not to be confused with the Mangekyou Sharingan ability, and the Life Fiber articles and clothing Ryuko, Ragyo and Satsuki wear.

    • Well some things for that. 1) Attack Potency and Destructive Capacity are two different things. Being City level =/= You can bust a city. ...
    • This is an old thread. It is probably best if I close it.
