- Friction Manipulation: Seike's unnamed ability is to control the coefficient of friction within a meter of himself. When setting the friction of air at maximum, even a 120 tons mecha is unable to move through the resulting "wall". Any attempt to move through this "wall" where the coefficient of friction is at the maximum is useless, as all energy of that attempt is converted into heat. As such, if a bullet tries to move through the wall, it will only heat up and melt. Indeed, Seike boasts that any material on earth will melt first before passing through the wall and that blades and bullets are useless against his power. Seike can apply this power to things that he touches, and the effects remain for several seconds. Seike can only use his power for 3 minutes in a row.
- Other Uses: Seike has shown other applications of his power over friction, such as removing the friction of the ground so that an object will spin aimlessly (Making opponents lose control of their movement or causing screws to remove themselves), making it so that he cannot be physically grabbed or touched by physical projectiles, sliding around the ground as if he had rollerskates, etc... He can also use his ability in conjunction with a specialized gun to turn all the kickback into thrust by removing friction. However, he hates using it this way, as it apparently hurts.
