- Goshokuzame/Five Feeding Sharks: Kisame puts his hand on the surface of a body of water, and a shark made of water comes out of each finger to strike the opponent.

- Suikōdan no Jutsu/Water Shark Missile: Similar to Goshokuzame, Kisame forms water into a single shark and sends it after his opponent.
- Samehada Chakra Drain: Kisame uses his sword to drain any excessive amounts of chakra (such as a bijuu's chakra) from his opponent. There is a limit to how much it can drain.
