|“||But, because I lost that power, my head had cleared a little... now, I've had time to reevaluate that power. So I'm thankful, actually. Lately, whenever something happened, I would use the Azure Grimoire right away... I was relying on that power. Not my own- someone else's. So, what's MY power then? What can I be proud of and say 'this is my power' about?||„|

Intelligence: Above average; an expert in combat, though he usually doesn't strategize unless it is necessary, preferring to leave such to others.
Weaknesses: Ragna is short-tempered and easily provoked. The Azure Grimoire will eventually either kill him or turn him into the Black Beast (no longer the case after receiving the Idea Engine). Loses the ability to use his right eye and arm when in close proximity to a ChronoPhantasma, such as Celica A. Mercury. Dislikes ghosts and hospital needles. Has consistently poor luck.
- Drive: Soul Eater: Ragna's drive allows all of his seithr-based attacks to damage and destroy the opponent's soul, feeding upon it to restore his health.
- Overdrive: Blood Kain IDEA: Temporarily provides an increase to both his attack power and toughness, and increases the health restored with his Drive. The lower Ragna's remaining health upon activation, the longer it lasts.
- Hell's Fang: Dashes forward, delivering a black seithr-infused punch, then follows through with a stream of seithr.
- Blood Scythe: Overhead swing with Blood-Scythe’s awakened form.
- Dead Spike: Creates a rolling wave of dark seithr on the ground, with resemblance to a head of the Black Beast.
- Belial Edge: A diagonal downwards dive, blade-first, that scores multiple hits.
- Gauntlet Hades: Two whirling, black seithr-infused hammer fists.
- Inferno Divider: A skyward slash infused with dark seithr.
- Not Over Yet: Grabs a prone opponent, holds them up in the air, then impales them with the Blood-Scythe.
- Nightmare Edge: Drags out his sword from above his leading shoulder, falling straight down from above with both hands on the sword for a slamming slash of darkness, with Ragna swinging the blade behind himself upon landing. Can follow through with an additional blow that sends a wave of energy
- Distortion Drive: Carnage Scissors: Performs a very fast, dashing reverse-grip sword slam, then releases two crossing spikes of dark energy (hence the name "scissors") from slashing the ground with his sword in reverse-grip. Covers a lot of ground very quickly, and provides brief invincibility.
- Distortion Drive: Devoured by Darkness: Ragna's hand turns into a claw of the Black Beast as he snatches the opponent, lifts them up over his head and bombards them with dark tendrils, finishing with an explosion of darkness and dealing a total of 70 hits.
- Astral Heat: Black Onslaught: After a short charge-up period, performs a reverse-grip upward swing. If it connects, Ragna goes berserk, unleashing a massive combo of brutal scythe swings before transforming the Blood-Scythe into a black hole-like void of darkness that rips an opponent apart; to conclude the attack, Ragna reclaims his sword and performs one final stab that causes the target's physical form to disintegrate into nothing and completely annihilates their soul, leaving only a trail of black seithr feathers floating in the air.
