But I am standing here. Whether by coincidence or inevitability, I am here now. No matter how weak or puny I might be, I can influence the overall situation now that I’m standing on the stage. That possibility remains, so the rest is my problem. You have no right to tell me what to do!!

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Immortality: All Youkai have an immortal body, since they don't have a concept of lifespan. Once they reach adulthood they stop aging completely, which makes it basically impossible to determine an adult Youkai's age from their physical appearance, as they could be several centuries old but still look young.
  • Invulnerability: Youkai are immune to conventional weapons and physical damage that follows the laws of physics. They are also immune to natural poisons and to things like radiation. Even weak harmless Youkai won't die if nuclear missiles were to pour down like rain. Additionally, Youkai have some resistance to interference from history and destiny.
  • Super Speed: Normally Sunekosuri is a harmless Youkai who only has the athletic ability of a small dog. However, when he's performing his role as a Youkai his movements reach the supernatural, allowing him to vanish from human sight and reach someone's shin without them noticing. He can move from shin to shin in crowds and maintain this kind of speed for a longer time.
