-Master Spearman: It is no surprise that after coming into possession of the Beast Spear, Ushio became a most skilled spearman, wielding the weapon with amazing skill and ingenuity. He is capable of fighting very well with the weapon against multiple opponents, and is often very adaptable. Even without transforming, he proves himself to be quite proficient. Ushio constantly keeps the spear on hand due to Tora's constant threatening to eat him, and to threaten the yokai to control him.
-Enhanced strength, reflexes and speed: When invoking the power of the Beast Spear, Ushio undergoes a transformation that greatly increases his strength and speed to the point where he can fight on par or even overwhelm other yokai. He is capable of easily holding up a large boulder on his own and can send a bus flying down a street with a casual shove of his hand. His speed also allows him to keep pace even with the likes of Tora, who is capable of flying fast enough to create a sonic boom.
-Advanced Healing rate and durability: As Ushio is often injured or wounded in battle, the Beast Spear accelerates his healing process, enabling Ushio to quickly recover from various injuries, and the spear increases his durability, allowing him to survive injuries that would otherwise kill a normal human.
-Expert Hand-to-hand combatant: While not properly trained in martial arts, Ushio has proven himself capable of unarmed combat on various occasions, incorporating his fighting skills with his wielding of the Beast Spear.
-Control of the Beast Spear: As the Beast Spear's master, Ushio can call the weapon to his hand if he loses it or throws it. Whenever Ushio invokes the spear's powers, his eyes become feral and his hair lengthens all the way down to his feet, making him appear somewhat like a yokai himself.
