- Greatest Caution / Maximum Destruction: Wyvern Rhadamanthys most deadly attack. In it, he burns a great quantity of his destructive Cosmos within him, and after focusing said Cosmos on top of his palms, fires an overwhelming blast at the opponents. He can do two variations of the attack, the first a focused form, where he points his palms at the opponent and fires a volley of Cosmic Beams at him. The second an area attack, where he spreads both arms and releases a devastating energy waves that engulfs all of his surroundings.
- Roar Slider: Simple technique used in the manga The Lost Canvas. After releasing a roar, Rhadamanthys gives a great leap through the air towards his target before pummeling them with devastating strikes.
- Wyvern Roar: With this technique, Rhadamanthys charges a great quantity of Cosmos within his voice, and upon shouting he releases all of said Cosmos in the form of an incredibly potent sound wave, albeit of far faster speeds and far higher capacity.
