Using its newfound abilities, Shiigan acts as something of a protector of the ocean, as it greatly detests the waters being contaminated.

- Fin Wing: An attack formed from Shiigan's wing-like fins. Shiigan's body flashes briefly before lifting its back fins, vibrating them rapidly, and unleashing a multitude of laser beams from the yellow fin membrane. Sparks fly and an explosion shortly follows as the lasers hit their target. Shiigan can fire up to twelve beams from each fin.
- Sepia Smoke: A wide-covering projectile attack. Shiigan emits purple ink from its maw, which smothers the opponent in a toxic fog. The ink deals poison damage, with the added effect of cutting the attack power of the foe in half.
- Mirage Veil: A special defensive technique. When in a pinch, Shiigan shrouds itself in a red aura and disappears, becoming completely invisible to the naked eye. This technique is used to help Shiigan avoid combat, as the veil breaks when Shiigan goes back on the offensive.
