Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Serpent Yo-Yos: Rinku's yo-yos are not mere toys, as they actually respond to his demon energy. When the opponent is hit, it appears that they are being shocked with electrical surges. He can manipulate the strings, curving them, and wrapping them around the opponent. He seems to take a huge liking to lifting them up to extremely high places up in the air, and then making them come crashing down. Rinku's yo-yos are powerful enough to smash through tall, thick rock structures.
  • Walking the Dog: Rinku makes the Yo-yos ride the ground towards the opponent with a lot of destructive force.
  • Around the World: By wrapping the Yo-Yos around his opponent Rinku can lift the opponent then slam them back into the ground.
  • Sixteen Serpent Yo-Yo's (Sixteen Devil Yo-Yo's): At first he could only control his eight yo-yos with his ten fingers, but after becoming a middle S-class demon, he learns to control eight additional yo-yos, using his toes. While he trained for, and later participated in the Demon World Tournament, he doesn't advance very far.
