- 石上神道流 (Ishigami Shinto Ryu): Fighting style of Soujirou Mibu. Build upon the killing intent and spirit of the practitioner. Soujirou is master of this way, having learned many techniques which includes :
- 首飛ばしの閾風ーー甲の第二 ・ 蝿声 (Kubitobashi no Kaze--Kou no Daini ・ Sabae):A high level technique of the Shinto fighting style. Normally used as a way to diminish the spirit of the target, Soujirou Mibu marvelous killing intent turns it into long ranged slashes. Due to this slashes being his own will, they can track his enemies without even having visual perception of them and the more murderous killing intent he releases, the more powerful it becomes, albeit he needs to keep it in check against powerful enemies. As a Gudou God, it becomes an infallible cutting phenomenon that is impossible to avoid and defend against; one that divides the universe itself.
- 級長戸辺颶風 (Shinatobe no Kaze): A technique that turns murderous intent into a sword. Despite the fact it doesn’t cause any big phenomenon, it releases precises slashes at close range without having to draw his sword, it cannot be predicted and therefore is impossible to dodge. As a Gudou God, he no longer has to swing his sword one hundred times to raise one hundred slashes, but only shake his katana once to raise one hundred million slashes, attack that becomes an absolute truth, even Shiori couldn’t find through her infinite possibilities a way to escape it and thus had to endure it through her defense as a Gudou God.
- 早馳風・御言の伊吹 (Hayachi・Mikoto no Ibuki): Mystery of the Ishigami Shinto Ryu. Through the body judgement and the line of sight, it allows its user to attack from the blind spot of the enemy. Because of this, target cannot even perceive the sword movements and falls into the illusion of being devoured by numerous invisible beasts.
As a Gudou God, it can be said to be the ultimate sword attack. Attack transcending concepts such as speed, skill, exploding the elements that exists between him and his opponent, turning the universe itself into swords that can reach any place, cutting phenomenon impossible to escape, severing the World of Poison, world of Tenma Akuro .
- Unknown Distortion: Mibu Soujirou’s Distortion. The extent of this ability is unknown as Soujirou is unaware of its nature, thus he can only use it unconsciously. Soujirou states that whoever fought against him "died". This isn't some kind of physical cutting attack, but something beyond, a higher dimensional form of conceptual cutting. Idea of slashing itself, absolute severance whether it was Tenmas themselves, or even visions of the future. Soujirou only managed to understand this power after becoming a God.
- Kajiri Kamui - Kei Tsunushi Futsumitama no ken: Soujirou's Taikyoku, Gudou type, born from his desire I want to become a blade. Desire to become the strongest swordsman in the world. It's the ultimate destination Soujirou has long sought. But everything would eventually be cut, leaving nothing for the God of the Sword. Eventually, he found a person to love and cut forever, one that desires to receive the gleam of his sword, one in which he desires to reach her core. Ability of this law is "cutting all that exists". From the physical to the metaphysical, tangible or intangible, concrete or abstract, everything is severed. Lifespan, luck, law, soul, distance, time, infinite possibilies, fate, space, dimensions, spirits, All is slashed. While his Taikyoku may seem to be surpassed, it will still affect his targets. First the flesh is severed, then his law goes deeper down to the "core" of everything. Moreover, as this Law turns Soujirou into the "sword" himself, this ability works with anything, even chopsticks or even bare handed will cause a cutting phenomenon. Logic no longer applies to him, so idea that a single swing result in a single slash is nonexistent. There's no concept of swinging, so everthing is hit. Distance doesn't even matter as it is cut too, so his distance infinite.
