Intelligence: Extraordinary Genius. Lelouch is extremely intelligent, capable of calculating the optimal positions for the Absolute Defense System, which was specially designed for his use, as he's being attacked. He also calculated the exact environmental data of his surroundings to use the F.L.E.I.J.A. Eliminator in nineteen seconds. He is a master manipulator, capable of perfectly predicting the actions and words of others and forming complex strategies under short notice. He is capable of rapidly adapting and forming new strategies during combat, though he begins to crack the closer he gets to defeat.
Weaknesses: Lelouch is arrogant, volatile, and emotionally unstable. His Geass needs eye contact to work and can only be used on the same person once. In addition, a strong enough will can briefly resist its effects. He eventually is unable to deactivate his Geass, as well. He is unathletic and has very limited stamina and constitution. | The Absolute Defense system must be turned off for weapons systems to be used.
Notable Attacks / Techniques:
- Geass: Lelouch's Geass grants him the ability to give anyone an absolute order. They will go out of their way to comply with this order regardless of the circumstances. Lelouch has used it to force people to kill themselves, to obey him absolutely without question, to forget certain events, and, when it fully evolved, he even used it on the "Gods", the collective human unconsciousness, though that was more of a request and less of an order. As he uses his Geass, its powers develop; he first loses the ability to deactivate it, and it later spreads to both his eyes. His Geass needs eye contact to trigger, though it can be triggered through reflections, and has a maximum range of 250 meters. He can only use it on the same person once, though a Geass Canceller will reset this, and a strong enough will can briefly resist its effects.
- Shinkirō: Lelouch's custom built Knightmare Frame.
- Absolute Defense System: The most powerful shield system in existence. It is controlled via two keyboards, which allow Lelouch to set up the perfect defensive patterns based on information received by the Druid System. It must be turned off for his weapons to be available, however.
- Druid System: A computer system inherited from Lelouch's previous Knightmare Frame, Gawain. It automatically plots out the probable movements of troops.
