Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Kongou Genes: The Kongou Clan, while similar in appearance to Homo sapiens, is a distinctively separate life-form which has perpetually remained at the top of the food chain, and refused to adapt to environmental changes. Their heritage, which supposedly is the culmination of evolution, grant them an inhuman physical capacity, the ability to recuperate supernaturally swift from wounds or even death and lastly giant growth. Giant growth is the true, dormant potential of the Kongou cells, which, when accessed, allows them to vastly increase their physical size and power at will.

  • Giant Mode: With a specifically developed drug to aid him, Takeshi managed to unlock his true potential, the ability to massively grow in size and become a giant. At a height of 300 meters his physical power is extreme, able to offhandedly cause earthquakes and destroy cities etc.

"Kongou Rumble": Takeshi has the ability to significantly hard his body himself by flexing his muscles. It is primarily used as the backbone of his offense, by strengthening his fists and forearms, but he has also the capacity to harden his entire body, drastically augmenting his durability and also making his skin impervious to attacks on his pressure points.

  • Double Hammer: Takeshi's signature move. After hardening his fists, Takeshi punches his opponent with both hands.
Takeshi's Double Hammer
  • Golden Claw: Takeshi picks up the opponent by their face, mugging them, and smashes them into the ground with extreme force.
