Weaknesses: None notable
- Hakkei Martial art: It is an attack on pressure points and meridians in some styles of Chinese martial arts used which is said to incapacitate or sometimes cause a delayed or even immediate death to an opponent. The points of attack used in hakkei correspond to the same locations as acupuncture points and other Chinese healing arts. A practitioner of hakkei is supposedly capable of inflicting serious harm to an individual by disrupting their chi or energy flow with their own, causing injury or death.
- Master Swordsmanship Specialist: Due to his identity of being an evil persona of Shouyou, Utsuro is an expert at swords as he was able to take on Sougo, Nobume, and Kagura all at the same time. Utsuro stated that Gintoki had fought against his sword style before and claimed that Gintoki could not beat his style since he never did it before.
- Master Hand-to-Hand Combat: He is also very adept in hand-to-hand combat as he used the same open-palm strikes as Oboro against Gintoki and Sougo to cause serious damage to their bodies.
- Physical Attributes: Utsuro was shown to have great physical strength, speed, agility, senses, and reflexes. Due to his identity of being an evil persona of Shouyou, Utsuro possesses even greater strength and physical attributes.
- Immortality: Affected by the power of Altana /Ryumyaku, Utsuro is an absolute immortal; unable to die, age, rot, immune to all illnesses, diseases, disorder, poisons, toxins, spells, and will rapidly heal/regenerate from any and all injuries no matter how destructive and be restored to perfect health and condition. He can completely and perfectly heal and regenerate from all wounds, including lost limbs, lost organs, decapitation, even complete incineration and cannot be killed: as shown when he was forced to be executed by Gintoki and had his body burned, he came back to life after being beheaded, and incinerated. He can also concentrate the Altana somewhere on his body, if he loses such part (as an arm for example), he is able to regenerate from that piece.
Note: So far it's unknown the upper limits of Utsuro, the hype suggests that he is superior to any threat that has been shown so far capable of being a threat to Umibouzu.
