Intelligence: Shaiapouf battles mainly relied on his tactical strength. He considers himself to be, among the three Royal Guards, the most intelligent and the most rational. Although his intellect is sometimes clouded by his love for the King, he displays enough calm to react the best in the worst situations as he was able to even break down Morel's plan when he was trapped in his Smokey Jail; not only surprising the former Hunter at his tactics but also being able to free himself in a shorter time than the Hunters would have expected. He quickly deduced that for Morel's abilities he needed his Smoke Pipe, which he stole so he couldn't fight anymore. He was also able to make a quick plan and deceive the King so he wouldn't remember who Komugi was.
Weaknesses: None notable
- Spiritual Message (鱗粉乃愛泉 Butterfly Scales Love Spring): Shaiapouf's ability, Spiritual Message, allows him to use his scales as a specialized En. Through their dispersal, he can read his opponent's emotions through the fluctuations in their aura. Shaiapouf used Spiritual Message in order to determine the best Nen abilities suited to Squadron Leader Chimera Ants, thereafter teaching them how to develop their own Hatsu. His scales also have a hypnotic effect to those exposed to it. The extent of hypnosis is not fully demonstrated. However, it is effective enough to make average citizens lose their will.
- Beelzebub (蠅の王 King of the Flies): Shaiapouf's second ability allows him to break his body into multiple miniature forms of himself. He can vary the size of each body; the smaller they are, the more he creates. Pouf can control them through his main form, which can only be reduced to about the size of a bee. Since he has control over every single cell in his body, he can easily recreate his clones if they are destroyed; however, if the cells themselves are damaged, he is powerless to restore them, resulting in damage to his body when the ability is disengaged. Shaiapouf can also create a normal-sized clone with enough cells, although it is unable to spread the hypnotic scales and its overall power is much lower than that of the original.
- Body Reconstruction: Shaiapouf can split his body at cellular level making it possible for him to reconstruct his body to look like someone else. He can reconstruct his face, physique and even his voice. This ability can also be used for healing purposes: by feeding someone else his own cells, he can heal their injuries, even potentially lethal ones. However, it is unclear if it would work on someone without special assimilation abilities.
