Intelligence: Extraordinary Genius. He along with his step-sister Shiro are arguably the most intelligent characters in the verse. Although not as intelligent as Shiro in calculations, he is shown to possess a brilliant super-genius IQ and an eidetic memory which enables him to quickly learn, understand, and easily recall limitless amounts of information perfectly and rapidly. This is demonstrated during his card game with Steph. Rather than computing numbers like Shiro, Sora can quickly determine what his opponents are going to do based on observation of their behavior and motivations, a technique called "cold reading." His amazing observational and deductive skills help him come up with complex plans quickly and easily. He learned the entire written language of Imanity in less than a day. He figures out a loophole in a seemingly luck based bet. Another thing about him is that despite being a shut-in, Sora has incredible superhuman charisma and eloquence. He is an excellent and natural speaker, always knows exactly what to say to get others on his side. He has no problems dealing with people. His superhuman charisma, eloquence, intelligence, memory, tactical/inventive skills, and his ability to rule, allowed him to quickly fix all of Elchea's problems from economics to agriculture within a few weeks of being crowned King. He is also an incredibly expert shooter, a skill which he developed through his experience with FPS games. He also claims to be good at war and romance games. He along with his sister Shiro managed to beat "God" in a game of chess.
Weaknesses: He is reliant on Shiro. He also has trouble with crowds but can handle them when he is with his sister. If he is separated from Shiro he loses his confidence and becomes totally terrified.
- Cold Reading: A technique frequently used by fortune tellers and other swindlers in the real world to quickly gain an understanding of, or trick, others. By observing things such as body language, hair and clothes style, gender, age, manner of speech, etc, and asking vague or broad questions it is possible to learn large amounts about others quickly. Sora uses this information with his incredible intelligence and knowledge of psychology to predict and manipulate the actions of others.
- Superhuman Charisma: Due to his charisma and understanding of psychology and emotions, Sora is very skilled at misleading and is said to be capable of bringing anyone to his side. Using this he has performed feats such as bringing an entire kingdom of people to support him, and turning a portion of an army of sentient chess pieces against their leader and their king.
